    Help an old guy out

    I attempted to install the AVRO 621 in FS X and I don't get sound or gauges.

    The installation instructions are to point the installer to a separate folder and move the aircraft folder into sim objects and the effects files into the effects folder.
    I did so but as I say I get no sound or gauges.
    Any ideas?
    thanks JB

    Basically the aircraft is self contained except for the effects.
    If you can see the aircraft when in the sim then quite possibly an antivirus stripped out needed files during the extraction from the .exe. Perhaps the download was bad too, although I highly doubt.
    Below is the file tree for the whole aircraft (possibly slightly different) within FSX, panel gauges & sounds highlighted.

    Take a look in the aircraft folder and see if there is a sound folder and a panel folder. Is there .wav files inside of the sound folder along with a sound.cfg? The panel folder should contain gauge files.

    Pretty much what Roman has shown!

    Thanks fellows, In looking at that structure I see that the sound and gauge files are named " $$A file " instead of wave or xml and BMP

    I just ran it again with AVG off and it seems that was the problem. I didn't know it would rename files. I wonder how much else it has messed with.
    Thanks Guys I appreciate it.

    PS. thanks to all involved with the AVRO It looks great.

    WOW!! That's some serious messing with files that in no way could harm your computer.
    Anyway... Glad you got it into your sim as it should be.
