Is there a way to set the scenery location folder other than on the C drive.

  • OK, now i'll use the famous two words "very odd"


    Do you have some type of folder security on the new folder that would prevent Aerofly from seeing it?


    I'm going to have to think about this one...

    Not intentionally. I will check all those type things again.

  • Can you also send me a screenshot of your main.mcf as well. I just want to double check it.

  • OK. I am running the 'Verify Aerofly FS2 integrity check of game files' now. Occasionally, one gets a wild hair.

    remove the txt on the end of the main.mcf file attatched

  • I had 11 corrupt files which were restored but, that was not the problem.

  • Hi Jeff,

    I am having the same issue, it doesn't work.

    <[string8][extra_user_folder][E:\sim_scenery\scenery\images]>


    Windows 10 64bit | iCore7-7770K| ASUS STRIX Z270E |KHX2400C15D4 - 32GB | Gigabyte Ge-Force GTX 1080Ti| SSD Intel 520 Series | 40" Philips BDM4065UC/75 4K - Oculus Rift

  • it should be <[string8][extra_user_folder][E:\sim_scenery]>

    for you

    Thanks Jan, I just read Rodeo's explanation and it's now working :-)

  • OK Gang, on to bigger and better things. I now have some partial success. I have a working 2nd drive for additional storage space for Aerofly FS2. It is not ideal, but it works. I have a 1 GB USB3 drive that is faster than the typical internal drive but much slower than a solid state drive. This USB3 drive worked on the first try. duh.


    I am still unable for some reason to use one of my 500 MB SSD drives but I now have 1 GB that is reasonably fast and portable.


    Thanks Jeff, thanks Jan, thanks Rodeo, and thanks Mick for hanging in there and troubleshooting the problem.


    My working string8 is [K:\myscenerytest] with the full path K:\myscenerytest\scenery\images\user files. Of course, as everyone has repeatedly stated the initial folder can be anything except 'scenery' to avoid confusion and must have a subfolder named scenery and a sub named images.

  • I'm glad that you have this working now.
