• 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.

FS2004 Where's my files said Waldo????

:confused:Here 's a riddle for ya. You pay for this program. You download, install the initial program, and you're finally ready to link AG and FS together. You follow step by step directions to go into fs settings/scenery addon/ add area but when the scenery file opens in a window, all there is is an empty folder. No specific 11 .bgl airport files to be found. Puzzled, you search from one end of the hard drive to the other to find these files. Again, none to be found. So you figure, maybe you missed something and reinstall the AG program again. right after you put in your registration code again for the 2nd time, it asks you to confirm where the file are to be placed. You hit the brouse button to double check prospective location and low & behold, there are the program files where they are supposed to be. I cancel the reinstallation efforts and look for the files once again. You guessed it, they're not there!

Now here's the riddle...Where in the heck are they??????? What needs to be done now?:eek:
Do you mean you look within FS? The Scenery Library will only show folders, not files, as only folders can be activated.
If you want to see the files you need to do so in the explorer window OUTSIDE of FS.

You will not see a single .bgl file within the FS Scenery Library. You dont ADD individual bgl files, you add the folder that FS will look to when loading the bgl files.

If you installed to the default location,
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X
(Note: Link may only work on Internet Explorer if at all)

then in the MSFX main folder, you need to open ADDON SCENERY folder and look in there. By default, no items will be in that folder. Anything there is what you or the installer added.
As for the files associated with AG, I do not know where they are installed to, but am assuming they are sent to the ADDON scenery folder. If that is the case, you simply need to activate it within FSX Scenery Library. Add the area, navigate to the folder, you wont see any files, click in the middle of the folder window (FSX has a weird glitch with this) to finalize it. Select ok, and it should be active in FS.

If after trying the above it doesnt work or you can not find the files in the EXPLORER, then make a comment here and we will help you find out what is going on. There are enough brains here to change a light-bulb, and thats a physical task. Almost every piece of software available through this forum is created and maintained by currently active members. So you are in a good place.
