  • Open your F-4 "aircraft.cfg" file, find the [SMOKESYSTEM] section, and delete it. It does not display properly in FSX. (The afterburner flames will still display... in fact, in FSX you will notice they are displayed in all throttle settings).
  • Copy and paste all of the [SMOKESYSTEM] info. below back into your F-4 "aircraft.cfg" file, replacing what you just deleted. (Then click 'file', then click 'save', of course).
  • Copy and paste the enclosed "fx_smoke_f6.fx" file into your FSX "Effects" folder. (It's probably there already).
  • Press your "I" key while flying your F-4 and enjoy the smoke coming off of the afterburner flames!
