3D Cockpit Problem

Postby DazzyB » Mon Jun 15, 2015 10:35 am

Hi Guys,

I've downloaded both the 747 and 757 which state that they have 3D cockpits but for some reason the cockpits are not loading. I just sit there on the runway with the ability of looking around using the mouse but I just see scenery and nothing else. The default aircraft including the 777 3D cockpits are working fantastic. I've placed the aircraft inside my home/Documents folder which is stored on a 2nd hard drive.

Does anyone else have this problem, or does anyone know how to resolve it?

Many thanks!

Where did you download the 747 (also, -200, -400, or -8i?) and the 757 from? Can you see the exterior of the aircraft from outside views?

[Edit] Couldn't hurt to tell which version of FG you're using too.
Boeing 747-8 (rename folder to 747-8i)
Boeing 757-200/300 (rename folder to 757-200)
Boeing 767-300/ER (rename folder to 767-300)

Sorry, yes... I'm using FG 3.4 and the aircraft that I downloaded were from this site... The 2 that show when you adjust the 3D cockpit slider towards the end. There's no other info on the downloads page other tan that from what I can see! Sorry, I'm new to FG and the website :)

Try pressing c, to see if that works. Also, they are like 747-400 and not 747-400-master or 747-40013747429?
