active EU England Installation mishap


Recommended Posts

Happy new year, and thank you for helping.

I recently got the Orbx EU England scenery for FSX:SE but I have had many problems after the installation, let me talk you through some.

When setting up Orbx Central, I selected my games, I put in my FSX:SE directory (D:\Program Files (86x)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX), but now everything seems a mess. I went to buy the EU England scenery and the installation was fine, but now when launching the game there are these serious problems, the game will sometimes crash when loading in, the scenery doesent even show up in Search Add-On Scenery...., the game has intense lag, and now somehow, my Aerosoft A320 Family planes have all bugged out and the screens dont work and the engines don't respond to thrust movements. I actually don't use the beta because I have no reason to use it but if it fixes all this I will be more than happy to. Any help is much appreciated.

Hello,

thanks but that one seems to be the default version.

if you cannot see the programdata folder, you may need to tick

"Show hidden files, folders and drives" in your Windows File Explorer

view settings.

I actually did go through that exact path, it might be because I recently reinstalled the scenery and it doesent show it, this one should be what you expected. Also, it says Date modified:03/06/2020 next to OldScenery.cfg, Scenery.cfg and SceneryStatus.bin.

Scenery.CFG

hello,

do you also have a C:\programdata\Microsoft\FSX-SE\scenery.cfg file?

The ones you have attached have no addons at all.

Hey, I actually saw that I can see some Orbx addons in my C drive scenery config but not in my D drive one (D drive is my main drive) I think that thats the possible problem.
Edit: I also found no file with SE on the end

Scenery.CFG

Hello,

regardless of where your simulator is installed, the only active scenery.cfg file is the one at

C:\programdata\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg

If this one is that file, then there is nothing wrong.

If the last file you attached is from somewhere else, you will need to put it into 

C:\programdata\Microsoft\FSX\, or the simulator will not see it.

hey, the last one i attached was from the C drive but my normal drive where all my games are installed is my D drive, my C drive is for windows 10 system files. The one with the Orbx scenery in it is in the C drive but it still doesent work and im still experiencing these problems. I could try moving the one from the C drive to the D drive it you think that would work. but i dont know how some of my planes have completely bugged out from just installing the Orbx central and the scenery.

Hello,

please leave the scenery.cfg file where it is, it is fine and contains nothing that could have the effects that you describe.

Can you describe the type of problem that you are having?

Also, can you rule out that no other changes have been made to your FSX files, either on purpose or by mistake.

We have all moved folders in error, myself included.

Well theres no real way to say this differently but it just doesent work, as when i go to Search Add-on scenery in the select Select Airport window, theres nothing there, when launching the game it says 'Adding new scenery files to database' or something along those lines, and i havent made any changes to my fsx directory before installing Orbx central at all.
