You should be able to find it here... " \Users\(your user name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX ". Just make sure the box is selected to show hidden files.

Re: Resetting to default starting eye point in FSX

Get into your settings in FSX for views. Go through them carefully, and redo the assignments as needed. This should take care of the problem. If not, you may have to delete your FSX.cfg, restart FSX, and build a new one. You will also need to redo your settings when you do.

Re: AI aircraft

Get into your FSX.cfg file and either copy it, or rename it. Then either delete the old one, or restart FSX. Either way you go, you will need to start FSX and let it build a new .cfg. Then go into re-setting your previous settings in game. This should take care of the problem. I also ran into an iss...

Re: AI aircraft

I think I've used World of AI for better traffic in FSX. I'll have to look and see, but I think I'm right. Will let you know... again... tomorrow.

Do note, if memory is somewhat decent, it has an installer. I'm running Vista, and it worked good. W7, might be a different story. :-"

Good news, and bad news. The model has some serious issues on distortion on the fuselage, so I made some "adjustments", or creative liberation's, to make it work for the star banner on the fuselage.
