JF DC-6 Bulletin Notice , to owners of the Boxed Version of this Mighty Fine Aircraft.

Now, I purchased the Boxed Version from Just Flight back in about 2012.

I'm just now finding out, after a few hours and lots of tinkering & testing and Double Checking, even triple checking,,,,,, myself and the Boxed version of the DVD,,,, from JF,,,,,

that there are a few files "Aircraft Texture Files" that should "NOT" of been in the Aircraft Textures folder,,,

I'll be doing a VIDEO on this to show everybody what to watch out for and the file names,,

BUT, what happened was, either Aeroplane Heaven or JF ??? accidently got a few files from the JF DC-3 included in the Aircraft Textures folders and that those 2 files would cause DISPLAY issues in the passenger cabin,,,,,

causing the passenger seats to NOT show up correctly as intended by the developer.      

I'd imagine it was a simple mistake, and someone was probably tired after being in front of the computer for hours on end developing this stuff,,, lord do I know that feeling,,,,,,

its late right now at 3:00am in the morning and I got to go to work, but this week-end I'll show ya'll the issue with photos and a video, and explain how I FIXED the problem,,,,

Evidently the FILE NAME is correct, but, its the wrong FILE, as it goes to the DC-3 and will NOT properly work with the DC-6.

****    FILE NAME : AH_DC6_interior2_t.dds

I double & Triple Checked myself thinking it was my fault,

NAW come to find out after I re'installed the JF Disk / DVD for the DC-6, its that way on the installation Disk / DVD,,,,,,,,,

Image that, after all this time I'm just now finding that out ,,, Duhhhhhh ,,

Theres only 1 proper file that'll work , and if its the wrong file, the Passenger Seats in the DC-6 won't display properly,,,,

Evidently a tired soul got some files mixed up, tho the correct name of the file,, but the wrong file was put on the DVD / DISK back then,,,

Yet I see NO Mention of this on the Forum anywhere,,, after all this time,,,,

I can't help but laugh are WE asleep or what simmers,,,

OK - Stay tuned hopefully Saturday nite or Sunday I'll provide some photos and video and discuss how to FIX,,,,

Geee only 5 years later I found this out ,,,,   

Badd DVD Disk, no treats for you !!!!!

SIM HANGER on YOU TUBE !!!
