Started VA Flying, Need Help With Downloading A/c

Thu Feb 15, 2001 2:43 pm

Can anyone help me?
I just joined Pacific West Airways and I need to download some aircraft. I lack the knowledge to install the aircraft and sounds package.
I should also mention that I don't know how to use Winzip.

Ohh god I hope you are joking!

If you are not then folow these steps:

1. unzip the file by right-clicking on it and select "Extract to Folder..........."
2. A folder version of the file will apear right beside it
3.copy the whole thing by clicking on it and selecting"copy"
4.Inside the FS98 folder which is found in C:/program files/Microsoft games, you will fin a folder called "Aircraft"
5. Paste the file in there
6.To add panels or sounds go inside the folder of the desired Aircraft and paste the new sound or panel in the appropriete folder.
7.If you cant figure it out at first do some thinking and Im sure you will get it.

I haven't tried using Winzip before and I have never downloaded aircraft before, so I knew nothing about it. Thanks for the help.  Smile

I fly for Pacific West too. What's your pilot number, and what hub do you fly for? I'm PWA5434 in the LAX hub.

Aer Lingus....Ok, even if you do fly for the "competition"
 Smile/happy/getting dizzy we all aim to please on the forum.

Reading the tutorials out there can sometimes confuse you more than when you started. If you are still struggling with getting new aircraft into your inventory, just drop me a direct email to bdean@jngray.com and I'll walk you through it!
