How do I install repaints for my PSS A340. I would like to get the EK A343 from avsim. Everytime I try to install it, it doesn't work.

There should be a readme included with the repaint that you have downloaded. In that readme, there is some information that you need to copy and paste in to your aircraft.cfg of the given aircraft you want to install the repaint to.

If the aircraft is payware then normally you get a lil program with it, and basically you put the repaint in that and it installs it for you, E.g. Level D 767.

Go into start, All programs then find the installed aircraft in there and see if there are any repaint programs. IF not read the READ ME of the repaint.

I am glad that I was able to help!
Please tell me if it works for you. If it doesn't, I will try to explain why. You need to replace the two "xx" in the information provided in the readme with the repaint. Those crosses represent the number that your repaint is going to get. For instance, if you already have to repaints installed, you will need to name the third one you just downloaded for "3" instead of "xx"

Its working now but I can't see the livery. Like I can go in and get PSS A343 Emirates but its just in the grey colour scheme.

All the liveries that came with it have this thing like A343-GULFAIR.INF. Do I have to make one of those for all of them?

I will check if it worked tomorrow morning, as my Dad has taken the disc to do a flight on his laptop.
