FS9 How To Open Aircraft Cfg Folder?

Tue Dec 25, 2007 9:41 am

Having a major headache...in trying to add a couple of a/c liveries to my fleet. The only avail textures I can find require minor adjustment to the aircraft.cfg files. Trouble is I can't open them, I keep getting the message "Winows is unable to open the file...etc etc"

What software do I need to open the files? The search option that comes up with the message is about as useful as a chocolate teapot! Once the files are open are the adjustments easy to carry out?

PS if anyone can help I would be grateful...but keep it simple if possible! I am a far better pilot than I am computer techie!

Hey, Just use notepad - when it asks you what program to yse just select notepad and yes adjustments are VERY easy to do - just follow the readme that came with the textures and you'll be fine

Hero? He just told you to use notepad!  Wink

But seriously, enjoy. I was in your shoes several years ago and when I figured all this stuff out it was awesome.
