.cfg Error During Installation

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to the site. I downloaded and installed the "My Traffic" package earlier today. However, I am having much difficulty in actually having it show up in my simulator. I installed the package to my "C" drive and not within my simulators. I have both FSX (DVD) and FSX-SE (download) installed on my computer, but I really only fly the Steam version. I thought I followed the steps in the documentation properly, and the "my traffic" add-on appeared in the scenery files section of the simulator. However, when I clicked okay, an error message popped up, stating that there is an error in the scenery.cfg file.  Seems like this should be an easy fix, but I just don't know how to navigate through the files well enough to adjust/revise/fix the issue. I will appreciate any assistance you can render. Thanks!

Look into the readme, this bug in FSX SE is explained there and how to cure it.

Basically, you have to edit scenery.cfg and replace the relative file name by an absolute one.

Thank you, I had figured it out by the time you responded, so all good with the install now. One other question..do all of the aircraft types listed in the "mytraffic/aircraft" folder automatically transfer over to my Steam aircraft folder? If not, what is the procedure to migrate certain equipment (e.g. MD-90, A380, etc.), so that they will occasionally show up in my airports scenery? Thanks again!

If you see any MyTraffic AI traffic, then yes all of them will show up. Of course, A380s  will be found at EDDF, EGLL WSSS and so on, and not show up on non-A380 rea3dy airports.
