Need some help over here!

Recommended Posts

While playing the Snowy Norway terrain, I found two problems:

 

This is the Sun, I think. I have installed Wide Sky mod. Just a lot os squares... :blink:

No airports.

And in the F/A-18KT, the HUD letters are kind of smooth (I think that is smooth the word).

This will fix your hud problems.

 

You can thank Fast Cargo for this - the guy is a wealth of info:

Okay, part of the issue is that you've got a combo HUD there...you've got parts of the older F/A-18A HUD mixed in with the newer F/A-18A HUD. The 'fuzzy' stuff is the old stuff.

 

Alright, here is the most straight forward way to fix it, but it takes a while to download the file you need.

 

Go to this link and download the Mega Pack C6:

 

http://www.checksix-fr.com/bibliotheque/in...hp?Fichier=4541

 

It's a HUGE download, and has a lot of stuff in it.

 

Install the pack, but NOT into any of your current installs. Make a 'fake' install location for it.

 

Once that's done, look in the Objects/Aircraft section for a F-18BA. It's a Blue Angel F/A-18A, but has the modern avionics.

 

Put that aircraft into your Objects/Aircraft directory of the install you want to fly the F/A-18 in.

 

Now, go into your old F-18 directory...you see the subdirectorys of skins? (most named for the squadrons they belong to). Copy those directories to your F-18 Blue Angel directory.

 

Go into the F-18 Blue Angel directory (F-18BA)...you see the subdirectories with the Blue Angel skins (BA, B1, B2, B3, etc)? Delete them...all of them.

 

Open up the F-18BA.ini file and first look for the entry that says this:

 

[AircraftData]

AircraftFullName=F-18 Blue Angel

etc...

 

Change it to:

AircraftFullName=F/A-18A Hornet

 

Then, find these entries:

 

[TextureSet001]

Directory=BA

Name=BlueAngels N°1

Nation=USN

Squadron=Blue Angels

Specular=0.150000

Glossiness=0.500000

Reflection=0.100000

 

[TextureSet002]

Directory=B2

Name=BlueAngels N°2

Nation=USN

Squadron=Blue Angels

Specular=0.150000

Glossiness=0.500000

Reflection=0.100000

 

[TextureSet003]

Directory=B3

Name=BlueAngels N°3

Nation=USN

Squadron=Blue Angels

Specular=0.150000

Glossiness=0.500000

Reflection=0.100000

 

[TextureSet004]

Directory=B4

Name=BlueAngels N°4

Nation=USN

Squadron=Blue Angels

Specular=0.150000

Glossiness=0.500000

Reflection=0.100000

 

[TextureSet005]

Directory=B5

Name=BlueAngels N°5

Nation=USN

Squadron=Blue Angels

Specular=0.150000

Glossiness=0.500000

Reflection=0.100000

 

[TextureSet006]

Directory=B6

Name=BlueAngels N°6

Nation=USN

Squadron=Blue Angels

Specular=0.150000

Glossiness=0.500000

Reflection=0.100000

 

Delete the entries...yep, go ahead and delete all of them.

 

Save the file as FA-18A.ini.

 

Delete the following files from the F-18BA directory:

 

F18_fuse.bmp

F18_leftwing.bmp

F18_nose.bmp

F18_rightwing.bmp

F18_tails.bmp

patch.bmp

 

Rename the F-18BA directory as FA-18A.

 

Done.

 

It works...I just did every single step myself to verify it works.

 

Also, you should be able to delete your old F/A-18 too.

 

Let me know if this works for you.
