• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.



After a chat with Arno I am now with GMAX under FSX SP2.
Hope I can post here very soon a test file to be sure I am arrived in heaven, hà. ;)

It seems that Flightsimulator X isn't change at all. Did only the install of the RTM SDK's and so on till the end... GMAX seems to work (I hope).
So I should uninstall FSX and do a fresh start anyway ? Or ?
Is there a possibility to see if FSX has the right version: FSX SP2 ?
In Control Panel every update is present for the SP1, SP1a and SP2.

Arno installed a specific file (with Whisplacer trees) and saw them without a problem. Had to say that I thought that Whisplacer trees are not compatible with FSX SP2 (due to a remark of a tester, but I think he didn't instaal this file in a correct way).
By this I am surely in FSX SP2.
Rest to do the texturing with GMAX also in a correct way in order to be sure that GMAX do it's job also fine.

I made some time ago a good working file with GMAX for FSX SP2... but now I don't remember how I did it (after too much experimenting with .dds files). :eek:
Is there any hope I can find something (maybe somewhere a backup ?). I fear that I can't do anything with only a bgl and a texture file. :(
