Re: new acft installtion only show "ghost aircraft"

Hey Budo, I believe that You will find that Accelleration will install right over the Top of the Service Packs and if it doesn't like the Service Packs It will send You a message - what to Un Install. Microsoft Programs are very good at telling You what they like - and what they don't like !! Have Y...

Re: new acft installtion only show "ghost aircraft"

Hey Mel, Yes - You are the Inscrutable level Head and Firm Hand on the tiller ! - and I agree - until Budo decides to install Accelleration the matter would be open - However I have No doubts that Accelleration is designed to Install over FSX with Service Packs - and can be installed at any time !

Re: new acft installtion only show "ghost aircraft"

Hey Budo,

If either Sp2 or Acceleration are in Your Add/Remove Programs page then UnInstall them - If they are NOT - then they are not installed - and do NOT need to be UnInstalled.

Looking forward to hearing back from You !!

Hey Budo, I know - Its sort of hit and miss - Like what kind of texture files they use to set up the textures - there are several differnt file types - FSX without the upgrades - does not display them all correctly - which seems to be where You are at .

Hey Budo, I'm am ever the optimist - Have You tried adjusting Your Video Card Settings - there should be a Video Card Control Panel - usually in Your Windows Control Panel or Your Desktop Settings.
