    I have to concur. Looks like a pain in the bum to even try painting...and the defaults are clumsy....jaggies and ill-fitting. Coincidentally I was just messing with Tim Conrad's Super Tucano for starters there's no issue with glass and prop. I was just doing a 'photo-real' widescreen ver of the 2D panel ... It's a far better A/C for FSX Here's what the Panel looks like so far - still have to add/animate a canopy...and a few other tweaks...;)

    He had no interest in changing the contents of a file. He wanted to know how to swap one with another. I can only assume English is not your first language. Edit....and my reference to 'logic' was as in 'common sense' - clearly an oxymoron just like 'military intelligence'. It certainly is not common at all....;p

    Glad you know what I'll be telling you next...because I certainly don't. I doubt you'd listen anyway as you clearly have not so far. I simply told someone HOW to swap an air file by renaming it. I neither alluded to nor cared one iota whether what he wanted to use was better...worse...or anything in between. I'm talking simple FILE MANAGEMENT and that an 'air' file is NOT an 'executable'. All else is your tangent, not mine...;)

    These days whenever I have an issue with FSX I can trace it to a 'gau' that people claim is compatible when they release a 'port' but actually isn't quite. Exiting or changing planes mid flight causes CTD. The blank screen is much the same...out of mem but too dumb to tell you it is....;) Re MS updates... for a few years I ignored IE9 and IE10 because updating to either killed FSX totally . A later update since resolved that and for me either now cause no issue. I no longer check the 'auto-update' option in MS Update.

    One assumes the slightest amount of logic....that you aren't trying to replace the air file from an a380 with one from a Sopwith Camel. Assuming the having of half a brain one would be trying to replace like with like....something closer to SE5 with Camel rather than bicycle with Kenworth...;)

    September 29th, 2015, 19:10 elaborate... You have an air file you don't like...say "plane.air". Rename it to "plane.old". You have an air file you want to use instead...say "plane2.air". Copy "plane2.air" to the aircraft folder where "plane.old" is. Rename "plane2.air" to "plane.air" Reload the aircraft and it will now use this new "plane.air". There will therefore be no reason or need to alter its reference in "aircraft.cfg". Obviously results will vary as the "aircraft.cfg" details were always specific to the original "air" file included with the aircraft. Tweaks to "aircraft.cfg" will likely be necessary to get more satisfactory FDE...;)

    an 'air' file is not an installer or exe. To replace one with another simply rename the old to something like from 'plane.air' to 'plane.old' and copy the new file to the same folder as the original...;)
