The V12.2 Modact 5.3 took a turn for the worst months ago, and I've been trying to get to the bottom of the problem. The game won't load mods as it did before, and many other planes I never installed. Since there are so many to choose from that do load, the game is fully functional once all the problem planes (about 10% of the total) get the // before them in air.ini. As an example that shows what happens with a mod, here is the log with the B7A1

Code: [Select]

Your B7A1 appears to be using an external FM: FlightModels/B7A1.fmd:B7A_FM
And obviously this external FM is not compatible with the buttons_412 of your game.
Have you checked that the Mod B7A1 is 412 compatible?

Thanks for the reply and pointing in the direction of buttons because I think that is the problem. When I downloaded the B7A1, and all the other mods that are not working now, they all started with no problem. Is there a site where I can download the Modact 5.3 button? I fear I have messed up by replacing the original with a loaner button that isn't correct.

Is there a site where I can download the Modact 5.3 button?
The ModAct buttons are contained in the ModAct archive!
With 7z, right click on the file "SAS_Modact_5.30_for_IL-2_4.12.2m.exe",
- Open archive
- in the folder #SAS\STD\gui\game\... you will find the buttons
- extract the button
