What is the file name you downloaded? Is it a ZIP file?

Okay that's a Rar file, similar to zip files, it's just another type of compression. You will need to extract it to a temp folder, and there should be a txt file that will give you instructions on how to "install" it to your FSX folders. It's usually just a case of copy and paste.

Extract it first, look for a txt file, and we'll go from there okay. Hopefully once you've read it you'll understand what you need to do.

I use 7zip to extract these type of files, because it pretty much does everything I need it to do.

cool nearly there

i got all the menphis belle files extracted and saved in sim objects where the other planes are

but it says to do this

this is interpretation repaint of montgomerys b-17f memphis belle as a b-17g from the 91st BG place the texture folder into your wop2 b17-g then copy text below in to your aircraft cfg and number the xx accordingly
e.g if you have six bombers then change the xx to a seven like this [fltsim.7]

i cant do this bit

then copy text below in to your aircraft cfg and number the xx accordingly

how do i open this cfg file do i need another software like 7zip

thanks

Sorry WOLIN, I recently started work again, and I haven't had the time to even turn the computer on this past week. I've been getting up at 3:30am, and more or less going straight to bed when I get home as it's been so late. Today I had an early finish thankfully, but I'm still very tired and need my bed :lol:
I'm so glad you were able to get it all sorted. Now you know how to add repaints to any other aircraft too. Hope you enjoy the paint :)

WIP 42-3485 711th BS 447th BG the b-17 it self was with the 447th but there is no other references for it so the name and nose art are fictional

I like the noseart, but do feel the weathering is a bit over the top...

OK, for an hour now I've been trying to download two of Nath's 401st planes with no success. RapidFire gives me: file not found. Are these no longer available? Or kept somewhere else. I noticed he also has a MediaFire page but I've had no luck there either. I'd love to feature these on the 401st BGA web site along with all the other repaint's that are there.
