Hi everyone New poster here - trying to get help from anyone I can. My old pc died last week and I bought a new one. I downloaded FS2004 onto it and started loading all of my AI traffic back onto it. Stupid me I just downloaded it all without checking a few in, otherwise it could have saved me a lot of time. However I have a problem. None of the planes are showing up. I removed the Traffic030528.bgl file to a safe place as a tutorial advised me. I then downloaded 197 airlines. The AI traffic slider is at 100%. There are two bgl files showing up. TrafficPAI.bgl and TrafficMRAIThomsonfly.bgl. The only planes showing up are one airline from the PAI file and two types of plane from the 6 on the MRAI file. I have tried to give as much info as possible so if anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it as Im going bald with ripping out the hair! Thanks Chris

Chris, Decompile the bgl's using Traffic Tools and check the aircraft are reflected in both the aircraft.txt and flightplans.txt. Then check your main fs9 aircraft folder for the aircraft you have designated for that particular traffic ie: Thomsonfly bgl should have the AIA 757, 737, 767 etc. In those particular aircraft folders open up your aircraft.cfg file and check the aircraft type in the line here in bold, make sure it is the same as the line in your aircraft.txt file and flightplans.tx file [fltsim.0] title=AIA 737-500 Thomsonfly G-THOB sim=aia_737_500 model=no_refl panel= sound= texture=G-THOB atc_id=BRITANNIA atc_airline=G-THOB atc_flight_number=433 ui_manufacturer=Aardvark ui_type=Boeing 737-500 ui_variation=Thomsonfly description=AI Aardvark 737-500, painted by John Taylor, Dont use textures without Permission! atc_id_color=0000000000 visual_damage=0 Another good way of checking the AI aircraft integrity of FS is to run MRAI compiler which does a confidence check on all your aircraft folders to ensure they have got every line in the cfg present and there is no conflicts ie: duplicate Flt Sim or missing texture files etc. Apart from that mate I don't really know. Hope it helps anyway, if not drop me a mail and I will scatch my head until I come up with a soloution. regards Si

hi si thanks for your response. Im rushing out but have had a quick look and it seems that only one airline has gone into the PAI.bgl file. However these aircraft are not showing up on FS2004. With the Thomsonfly.bgl file I downloaded some aircraft from AI-Aardvark and some from PAI. The AI-Aardvark aircraft are the ones that ARE showing up. Thinking my pc doesnt like PAI for some reason Will look more carefully when i get home and let you know thanks chris

Chris, Try reinstalling the pai file, it may just need to rebuild. Si
