  • Copy and paste the enclosed "fx_smoke_f6" file into your FSX "Effects" folder. (It is probably there already, so look first).
  • Copy and paste all of the [SMOKESYSTEM] info. below into the "aircraft.cfg" file for each one of your Thomas Ruth Airbus A340 models. I pasted mine between the [radios] section and the [keyboard_response] section with good results. This smoke was perfected for the A340-200 and 300, but works just fine with the 500 and 600 as well.
  • Press your "I" key while flying your A340's and enjoy the engine smoke effect!
