I have a texture problem on the DC-8-63F with the Emery Worldwide 1992 livery. On all 4 engines there is no texture in the area of the thrust tube / thrust reverser - only on the starboard side! The error only occurs with this aircraft. I've downloaded and installed the textures over and over again, to no avail. The error also occurs when I tested it with the engine textures of another DC-8-63. Does anyone have an idea or solution for me?

Only just seen this posting .... and checked that texture now and can confirm there is a problem with it.
It seems that EMERY DC-8-63F texture has an incorrect "WIND_FRM" texture BMP. This particular texture BMP features the engine tail pipe details .... among other detailing too.
That EMERY texture will need to be replaced by us, but, we probably can't do so until later this month .... possibly even next month.
There's an "EASY SOLUTION" for you though to be able to fix this yourself .... as follows ....
1. Download the EMERY 2000 N797AL texture (if you've not already got it installed also).
2. Take the WIND_FRM texture BMP from this particular livery .... and "copy it" to your EMERY 1994 N964R texture .... and select "YES/OK" in response to the overwrite prompt.
This action "WILL" solve this issue for you (I've just done this myself and it "DOES" work) .... although the upper forward fuselage antennae will remain white until we can later replace the EMERY 1994 N964R.
Thanks for your fast reaction. Replacing the WIND_FM.bmp file corrected the error. I wasn't even aware that this file also contained engine elements and had just always experimented with the engine textures. It doesn't matter that the VHF antenna on the fuselage is white instead of red. Let's assume this has just been replaced and out of the box it is white.
