How to install "things"

Post by Xyro » Tue Feb 18, 2020 6:37 pm

Note: I don't really know what I should really call this topic, but yeah it has to do something with installation.

I recently installed YSFlight again... and yeah, I was gone for like four years. I can't remember how I did things back then and I feel like a noob. lol.

Anyways, how do I install the good 'ol decaff_42 Weapons Pack?

Thanks in Advance and safe skies! :D

If it's a universal replacer, just copy/overwrite the files you want into the misc folder

I have a video that shows how the folders work.

<------- There is also an "Installing" link under "Game Add-ons" in the bar to the left.

It looks like neither specifically mention the misc folder, but most addons are drag and drop now.

My weapons pack is designed to work with my aircraft addons using the DAT file to overwrite the default weapon skins in your YSFlight installation and use my locally defined weapon skins. You can certainly use the weapon skins as your default weapon skins, however you will need to rename the files and overwrite the existing files in your misc folder similar to the BNI Weapons Pack
