  1. I don't know, why do I? I'm not supposed to know the inner workings of game software and programming, I'm just a customer trying to make your product work. I didnt know there was a difference between FSX and FSX: Steam Edition until I started this process. As I said, I only just came back to the hobby. I'm not sure I like where it's gone since I've been away. Anyway, as I've said, my install of MyTaffic is now working, but it did take a lot of effort and rereading over of your instructions. I repectfully recommend that in light of me not being the only one that had had issues (and I do know something about flightsim) that you reword your instruction manual and mention some of the problems that may occur during install. You're obviously well aware of them and know how to work around them. So, just tell people so they know what to do. That's all.
  2. I am in your side amadams916, the "read the manual" reference referred to another poster further up who implied I hadn't read it, not you. The instructions are as clear as mud and that last step where it's supposed to "save" didn't for me either. I opened the scenery.cfg file in a text editor and inserted the entry myself. I'm used to doing this kind of thing as I was a beta tester for FSX originally and ran an FS website for many years. So I'm not a dummy where this stuff is concerned. I agree, the traffic should just install, like Project AI traffic used to do, adding a line in the scenery file can be automated. Hope you get it working soon, I feel your pain! David
  3. This is exactly what happened to my installation (and I did READ THE MANUAL). Eventually I edited the scenery.cfg file manually and it worked, but it's a real pain to have to do that along with all the other steps etc. but, it is working now. The only part I haven't figured out is how to add the voices, or more specifically, where to find the file from Editvoicepack referred to above? David.
  4. Thank you Bob, although my specific paths are different (I have FSX Steam), I have managed to manually add the entry to the scenery.cfg file. I don't think Burkhardt was fully understanding my problem, I wasn't getting an error message, I just couldn't add the scenery to the library because FSX Steam wasn't finding it (when I clicked OK, nothing happened). By using some common sense and guesses, I now have the traffic appearing in the sim. But I must concur with KMCK, the installation is unnecessarily complicated and confusing, even the operation of the "communicator" is confusing. I suspect it is so because English isn't Burkhardt's first language and that's OK, but I recommend maybe getting someone fluent to re-write the instructions for future versions. At first look, the aircraft are very basic (understand it's for frame rates etc.) and shiny. Quite a few don't have callsigns so ATC and the labels don't speak/show the airline etc. I'm sure this can be fixed in the Airline.cfg file and with a program such as Editvoicepack. Thanks for your help guys, much appreciated.
  5. No, it's when I try to add your scenery to the scenery library from within FSX SE. You just told me that I can't edit my scenery.cfg file so I haven't. There are no paths like you suggest in there anyway. As I said, I'm finding this very confusing, why can't it just install like most other add-ons do? I know that the old FSX and FSX SE have problems coexisting, but I don't have FSX on my system any more. So the file structure should be and is good (no "SE" extensions). David.
  6. I only have FSX Steam installed now. I removed an old install of FSX a long time ago and I did a registry clean up. The scenery config I showed you is the same as the one that pops up in the library dialogue of FSX Steam (as you see I added Orbix textures etc. no problem, because their installer did it for me). The problem I have is the scenery library finds the MyTraffic Professional\MYTraffic folder just fine, but when I click OK, it says file not recognized. Same as the other poster further up this thread. I posted here because I'm having the same problem. Could I add the entry to the scenery.cfg manually and save it? If so, I just need to know exactly what to type in there. Something I can copy and paste would be best. I posted my software locations etc. in my original post above. I have successfully added the entry in the FSX.cfg file, so that's OK I believe. Looking forward to resolving this. Thanks for your patience and help. David.
  7. But Burkhard, as I explained, I'm running FSX: Steam Edition not P3D and I've tried using the scenery library to add your scenery but it won't recognize it. Then you told me to find the users\all users\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg to add the entry? I'm just very confused now??? I'm annoyed because I bought MyTraffic 2013 as well, not knowing it wouldn't work with FSX Steam, now I've bought MyTraffic 6 and I can't get it to work either! So now I've paid out around $90 and have nothing to show for it. I recall Project AI being much easier than this when I had the MS FSX a few years ago. Hope you can help me get this working please. David.
  8. Please clarify the above? I have now located the scenery.cfg file and I have no idea where to put "Local=C:\MyTraffic Professional\MyTraffic". Your software hasn't made any entries in this file, so there's nothing to change/add to? These are the top entries in my file: [Area.119] Title=Propeller Objects Local=Scenery\Props Layer=119 Active=TRUE Required=TRUE [Area.120] Title=Reno Local=Scenery\Cities\Reno Layer=120 Active=TRUE Required=TRUE [Area.121] Title=Istanbul Local=Scenery\Cities\Istanbul Layer=121 Active=TRUE Required=TRUE [Area.122] Title=Longleat Local=Scenery\Cities\Longleat Layer=122 Active=TRUE Required=TRUE [Area.123] Title=Berlin Local=Scenery\Cities\Berlin Layer=123 Active=TRUE Required=TRUE [Area.124] Title=Edwards_AFB Local=Scenery\Cities\Edwards_AFB Layer=124 Active=TRUE Required=TRUE [Area.125] Title=Addon Scenery Local=Addon Scenery Layer=125 Active=TRUE Required=FALSE [Area.126] Title=ORBX!OPENLC_BASE Local=ORBX\FTX_OLC\OLC_AA Layer=126 Active=TRUE Required=FALSE [Area.127] Title=ORBX!OPENLC_NAMERICA1 Local=ORBX\FTX_OLC\OLC_NA1 Layer=127 Active=TRUE Required=FALSE [Area.128] Title=ORBX!OPENLC_EUROPE1 Local=ORBX\FTX_OLC\OLC_EU1 Layer=128 Active=TRUE Required=FALSE I'm not a computer guy, I'm a pilot, so I'm looking for specific and clear instructions please. Thank you.
  9. Not sure what you mean with the last comment? I pasted the C:\users\all users\FSX\ into the run dialog and it didn't find anything.
  10. I have just tried to install MyTraffic 6 and I have to concur, I found the instructions confusing. Anyway, I persevered and got to the point of adding MyTraffic to the scenery library. When I click "OK" nothing happens, it says "scenery not found". I was pleased to see an update to the instructions, but I don't have this path "C:\users\all users\FSX\scenery.cfg". I only have "Fid" (my username as admin on my PC)., "dub_cm_auto" and "public" so I can't find the scenery.cfg file to add the entry to? I'm running Windows 7 and FSX:Steam Edition which is installed in the default location: C:\Program Files (86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX My FSX.cfg file is in: C:\Users\Fid\userapps\Microsoft\FSX MyTraffic is installed in: C:\MyTraffic Professional\MyTraffic Any help would be much appreciated. David.
