Make a folder called texture.vir in C:/Program Files/Microsoft Games/Flight Simulator 9/Aircraft/B747_400. Copy the files that you downloaded into that folder. Go to the 747_400 folder and open the CFG file. There should be an entry that looks like this:

[fltsim.3]
title=Boeing 747-400 Paint3
sim=Boeing747-400
model=
panel=
sound=
texture=3
kb_checklists=Boeing747-400_check
kb_reference=Boeing747-400_ref
atc_id=N747P
atc_airline=Soar
atc_flight_number=1123
atc_heavy=1
ui_manufacturer=Boeing
ui_type="747-400"
ui_variation="Soar Airlines"
description="More than 30 years ago, the 747 made its first trip from New York to London. Since then, it's become the standard by which other large passenger jets are judged. Its size, range, speed and capacity were then, and are now, the best in its class."

Copy that and post it under the original. Now you will have to change the information. Change these:

[fltsim.3] < Change to .4
title=Boeing 747-400 Paint3 < Change to whatever
sim=Boeing747-400
model=
panel=
sound=
texture=3 kb_checklists=Boeing747-400_check
kb_reference=Boeing747-400_ref
atc_id=N747P
atc_airline=Soar < Change to Virgin
atc_flight_number=1123
atc_heavy=1
ui_manufacturer=Boeing
ui_type="747-400"
ui_variation="Soar Airlines" < Change to Virgin Atlantic
description="More than 30 years ago, the 747 made its first trip from New York to London. Since then, it's become the standard by which other large passenger jets are judged. Its size, range, speed and capacity were then, and are now, the best in its class."

Save it and you should have a repaint installed.





Holy sh*ts and burritos.
