    Installation procedure for AFPD model downloads

    Here's a 5-step guide on how to install downloaded AFPD aircraft models from the various free websites. This is a drag-and-drop method which I find is easier and faster, compared to unzipping.

    When you have completed the download of an aircraft model, you will see a zip file on your desktop. An example is shown below.

    RE: Installation procedure for AFPD model aircraft

    If your zip file has a single folder, use your mouse to drag and drop (or copy and paste) that folder into the "Aircraft" folder.

    RE: Installation procedure for AFPD model aircraft

    If your zip file has a set of files, you will have to create a new folder inside the "Aircraft" folder and give it the same name as the zip file. For example, if the zip file is "rExtreme.zip", then the new folder name should be "rExtreme". Then use your mouse to drag and drop (or copy and paste) all the zip files into the new folder

    RE: Installation procedure for AFPD model aircraft

    Addendum: Some of the newer model downloads may come as an executable file. That actually makes life a whole lot easier. All you have to do is the double click on the zip file to extract it, then double click on the .exe file to install the model. The installation will be done automatically.

    RE: Installation procedure for AFPD model aircraft

    rajul,
    Your installation procedure is very clear and I have followed it exactly (using both a single folder and separate files) but the model ( acromaster_jw) does not appear on the list of AFPD aircraft.
    Within the "aircraft" folder the "acromaster_jw" folder is not sorted into its alphabetic place.
    Can you help me further please?
    Gerry

    RE: Installation procedure for AFPD model downloads

    Gerry, I tested the acromaster_jw and it works fine using the outlined procedure. Do you see the acromaster_jw folder in the AFPD aircraft folder? What version of AFPD do you have 1.8.0.25 or 1.9.7.11? Did you install any addons?

    2) I have AFPD 1.8.0.17
    3) I don't have any addons.

    RE: Installation procedure for AFPD model downloads

    The aeromaster_jw file was written for version 1.9.x.x of AFPD. Try and see if this works:

    Go to the aircraft directory C:\Program Files\IPACS\AeroFly Professional Deluxe\aircraft and open the aeromaster_jw folder.
    Look for the .tmd file and open it with a text editor like notepad or word

    Now you need to alter this line in the .tmd file:

    // aerofly professional --------------------------------------------------------
    //
    // file: xxxxxxx.tmd
    // version: 1.9.0 <<<<<<<<ALTER THIS LINE TO: // version 1.8.0
    //
    // type: 20
    // lock: 0
    //
    // -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Then click save

    LOL! I would also suggest that you download and apply the 1.8.0.25 update patch. There's a link provided in one of the stickies.

    Am I reading this right? Shouldn't I click copy first, then cut or what? Am I to understand that file needs to be deleted in the new model folder?

    RE: Installation procedure for AFPD model downloads

    Hi Phantom, not all downloads have .wav files in the model folder. If there are any, then you'll have to transfer them to the sound folder.

    I know. I just thought you meant copy, instead of cut in your instructions. Sorry.
