As always back up any original files.

  1. Unzip downloaded folders to your desktop or temporary directory of your choice.
  2. Copy the " P-38 Army " Fear The Reaper" and paste it in the main aircraft folder. By default the main aircraft folder is located at: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FSX\SIM Objects /Aircraft.
  3. Be sure to completely unzip all files the aircraft file when complete will contain 6 files the Following 6 files goes in the aircraft folder CFG Airfile Model Sound Panel Textures.
  4. Unzip the gauges folder and put the gauges in the FSX gauges folder located at "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FSX\Gauges " If you desire you don't have to gauges work just fine in the panel folder...

When using Mel Mutter's Original P-38 Panel in the Panel file only used a [VCockpit01] yet the Model was created with a [VCockpit01] & [VCockpit04] This left gamers looking out to their left and seeing a 1024 X 1024 Black square . The solution was to add a [VCockpit04] and I just made the a pixel size 1 x 1 This panel uses Mell Mutter's panel in 2D and the original Texture as the 3D panel this rework makes both work correctly .

Is there any way one can purchase a disk with the program already installed on it? The push this button and that button and enter this command and that command is confusing for anyone other than someone with computer programming knowledge above mine.
