  1. Version 1.0.0


    Binter Canarias CRJ700 With thanks to Idem30 for his exceptional Aerosoft CRJ900 in the colours of Binter Canarias. It was Idem30's original Binter Canarias CRJ900 repaint that I subsequently modified in order to create this Binter Canarias livery for Aerosoft CRJ700. All original artwork credit please should go to Idem30, with but a few necessary touch up's by me for the CRJ700 refit. Enjoy!
  2. I suppose DXTBMP will, at a pinch, do. #pedantic
  3. You (probably) need a tool called DXT2BMP (here) which you can use to open the DDS files. Within DXT2BMP you specify your preferred painting utility (GIMP or etc), and then you send the DDS from within DXT2BMP into your editor. You make your modifications, save, then back in DXT2BMP you "Reload after edit" which will bring in the changes you have made into DXT2BMP, where you save them back as the original DDS. This is is a hugely simplified explanation, and doesn't even tackle the painting per se, but it will get you in a position where you can save some work. As for the LIT and other DDS types, I too am trying ascertain how to tackle these; for the moment, I'm guessing.
  4. Is there a way of contacting Holgi as I would very much like his permission to recreate his excellent CRJ900 Iberia Air Nostrum into a CRJ700 variant? My paltry skills could never do his original justice, but still I'd like to rejig his original as the CRJ700 is a particular favourite of mine. Thanks, Fabio
  5. Now that Alitalia and Meridiana are done, that's Itaky covered, but now I have discovered lots of Greek Islands that need exploring... An Olympic A319 livery would be very much appreciated!
  6. Thanks, it was unavailable before, though I managed to download it soon after. It is still marked as "Broken" however.
  7. Hi, No worries, and apologies, I didn't mean to come across as I did. When I taxi to my other a/c, whether in career or free flight, the (correct) replacement a/c are present (C208, C185, C90B). I will return all a/c to the AAA install defaults, and I'll report back. Thanks for your help, Fabio
  8. Hi, FSX warns if aircraft titles are not unique; therefore, without an error, we can conclude that all my aircraft titles are unique. I have experimented with different aircraft, but any combination of a/c causes the Fatal Error when taxying to switch a/c in career mode, though they all work in free flight mode. For the moment, all unused a/c titles are renamed to something unique like "- not used", "- unused", "- not in use" etc. I'm a longtime simmer, and I have no issues editing or reconfiguring files. I mmediately edited my a/c in AAA as I bought this Aerosoft product knowing that different aircraft could be used (I have no interest in flying default FSX aircraft, other than for testing). I will report back.
  9. Hi, The three aircraft that I have chosen (C90, C208, C185) can start as the default aircraft at HK0G OK. I have started the same three aircraft without problem at Buffalo Spring and many other random locations. I have not changed any scenery files or re-activated ORBX (i.e. test and FSX conditions remained the same). For the moment, I am running in career mode but with Enable Changes so that I can choose aircraft type, but of course I don't obtain the rewards (which is OK really but it would be nice if at least my money can be kept). Any ideas? Thanks, Fabio
  10. Good idea, I'll check this out and will post my reply. I have swapped various aircraft around such that the Kodiak was default, and that was fine. I'll try with the C90B as well, plus free flight mode as discussed.
  11. Thanks. If duplicate aircraft titles exist, FSX will warn you whilst it loads, and AAA warns if there are issues with nanes as well; I'm happy that the naming configuration is 100% correct. The naming convention I used came from the same link as you provided (otherwise I wouldn't have known that I was indeed able to alter aircraft choices before purchasing), and the other aircraft choices appear parked at their respective airfield locations, so this must be right. Specs: i7 950 OC 4.0Ghz, Xigmatek Dark Knight Cooler, 6Gb 1066 RAM, Asus P6X58D-E, Seagate 500Gb 7200RPM , Nvidia GTX460 (latest drivers), Corsair GS600 PSU, W7 64-bit, FSX with SP1 & SP2, ORBX/FTX, UTXE, REX2, GEX, Saitek Yoke, Rudders, Throttle, MCP, Switch, & Radio
  12. Hi, I am trying to change my aircraft in AAA, but each time that I attempt to taxi to another of my aircraft, I select "yes" to change to the new aircraft, but I get a fatal error and FSX shuts down. I have changed my aircraft selection: Carenado Caravan 5Y-ASC Carenado 185 Bush 5Y-ASB Carenado KingAir - 5Y-AST For instance, changing from the Caravan to the C185, places me in the VC of the C185, but without fully redrawing it fully, and then it gives me a fatal error, and FSX restarts. Have you any thoughts and suggestions? Thanks, Fabio
  13. Hi, Thanks, I have registered my product and I now have access to the V1.3 update (though I'm not sure this will address any performance issues). Best wishes, Fabio
  14. Hi Alex, I will do this straight away, and I'll update this post. Many thanks, Fabio
