Error message in aircraft converter

  • I am probably missing something simple here, but will ask regardless.

    I'm working on a simple repaint of the third party Piper Cub addon. Everything is going well with the conversion process until it stalls with a message saying "Cannot load aircraft - set Aerofly FS2 folder in config.tcm"

    What I cannot understand is that by that time the converter has already loaded the aircraft into the my documents/.../aircraft/pipercub folder. Everything is there except a preview.ttx which has failed to generate. At that point, I can get the aircraft to fly in FS2 only if I copy an existing preview.ttx file from another pipercub repaint and place it in the new repaint's folder.

    So, what am I missing?

  • First, make sure that you have the aircraft files installed in the main program folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator\Aircraft\) and not in the expansion aircraft folder (C:\Users\[YOUR user for the computer]\Documents\Aerofly FS 2\aircraft) and that the installation folder is named EXACTLY as 'pipercub', one word, no caps.

    If that does not fix the problem let us know and we can look further into it.
