This can be used to repair transparency problems for the Giles-202, Starlite, Skyboy, Su-31, Sierra, Sierra Amphibian, or P2004 Bravo. Aircraft window glass will be shiny and present if you use this stuff. Other stuff will also look better. By Don Halcom.

This is my preferred way of installing files but you use any method that you like. I use Windows Explorer.

For FSX users: THE PLANE(S) THAT YOU WANT TO FIX MUST HAVE ALREADY BEEN INSTALLED.

  • Make a folder called "Temp" or "Crud" or anything you like in the root directory of Windows Explorer.
  • Unzip all the files and folders from the downloaded "fixtrans.zip" file to the folder you just made (for example "Temp").
  • Select the folder called "Akrotech Giles-202" (THIS IS ONLY AN EXAMPLE and you should copy the folder of the plane in which you are interested) and hit "ctrl-c" to copy the entire folder and its contents.
  • Go to the "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes" folder of your FSX flight simulator and paste (ctrl-v) the copied "Akrotech Giles-202" (EXAMPLE) folder there.
  • If you get a message asking you if you want to "overwrite" anything, say "yes to all".
  • Do 3-5 as many times as necessary to repair the aircraft you have installed made by me for the FSX.
  • I would save the "fixtrans.zip" file somewhere in case you need it again.
