No texture on plane

What causes this to happen in FSX? I have it on probably 20 or so planes in FSX both on payware and free downloads. I have Windows XP Pro with SP3 and I am using FSX SP1 and SP2.

Dell XPS 700

Intel Core2 Duo processor

w/DualCore technology w/2MB cache

4GB DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz

512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX video card

I kept trying to add an image from photobucket but for some reason I am doing something wrong, hope someone can help me without an image. The outside textures of the fuselage are missing, but the interior textures are there. Hope this helps understand my problem.

Hi Shaun, thought I would let you know I stumbled across a fix for my texture problem, thank God I didn't have reinstall FSX. It turns out I had purchased a plane from another source previously and it had the textures missing after installation, I talked to a Customer Service person I had bought it from and they did not know what caused it to happen but suspected FSX SP2. I was going through the XP Control Panel and saw it was still in my system, I deleted it and all my other plane textures are now there. Geez, why didn't I do that before? At any rate, it is fixed, just wanted you to know and thank you for the reply.

Hello RVC,

Did you try re-installing the product too.

But the issue is within your FSX and not the products, I dread to think but it may mean a complete re-install of your FSX.

I tried to PM you but got this message "The member cannot receive any new messages"

Hello RVC,

Could you please PM me and let me know which aircraft it was so I can maybe suggest it as well if re-installing SP2 doesn't work.

The reason is that many planes that where developed for fs9 and upgraded to fsx are incompatible with dx10. You get your textures back if, in the graphics settings you uncheck the box "preview directx 10", but in doing so you'll of course miss some of the special effects produced by dx10. Software producers should inform customers whether their product is dx10 compatible or not. Examples: Aerosofts KatanaX, Wilco 737 PIC, CLS A330/340 are all NOT dx10 compatible and it gave me a lot of chagrin, because I refuse to go back to dx9 (my pc can run dx11!)

He's running Win XP. DX10 does not apply. And even when you check the DX10 box FSX remains a DX9 game whether you like it or not. There is no `refusal` you simply have no choice. DX10 preview is exactly that, a pre-beta slightly-modified FSX so that it uses the DX10 API pipeline under a few circumstances. As it was never completed, you will never have a DX10 FSX.
