View Full Version : Missing textures
05 Jul 2007, 04:34
I added the line "ShowMissingTextureAlert=1" to the [Scenery] section of FSX.CFG and found that many of my AI aircraft had missing textures. Is there a tool which will scan .mdl files and report missing textures? I have tried FSLibScan but this seems to scan only scenery bgls and not aircraft
I have never seen such a tool, maybe another forum member has.
Else, I might be able to create something for you. While exploring the new FsX MDL format I have made some test tools to dump information about a MDL file. That includes the used textures as well.

I think such a tool would be appreciated by many. FSX must waste a lot of resources by continually trying to find textures that are not present.
There is such a tool ;)
It is freeware, goes by the name of FlightSim Manager Version 2.8 from Rana Hossain. Sadly it is abandoned since a long time, and Rana has implemented a end of life function for November 30, 2006. The result is, that the version you can download from avsim (site is down, so no link) will not start.
The solution is to start it with a small script that saves the current date/time, sets an old date, starts the tool and restores the current date. You can download the script from avsim as well, but it prepared to work with the English date delimiters.
This version works for me:
REM Get useful date out of Windows XP
REM Set to same date in year 2005 ver 1.0
REM Set a local scope for the following variables
for /F "tokens=1-4 delims=." %%i in ('date /t') do (
echo Datum: %Day%.%Month%.%Year%
REM End the local scope for variables
The program will check one or all aircrafts for missing textures / gauges / sounds and does a dozen other useful things as well. Beware, it's a powerful tool which can do harm if misused ;)

Thanks Martin but that tool does not check the .mdl file for required .bmps it just checks the texture folders specified in the .cfg.
That comes from answering posts too late in the night..... :o
