When you download a new scenery to fly from, which folder in xtr are you downloading it to? I dont see a scenery folder on xtr.

It's a folder called Umwelt
The new photo scenery's then go in the sub folder called WLP
that's within Umwelt folder

I don't download to the folder directly since stuff comes off the net in zip format usually.What i do is create a folder on the HD with all the Reflex stuff in it,sub divided into heli's,scenery and planes folders.

Find out the name of the scenery you have just downloaded and then
create a new folder with that name or roughly the same name in the WLP folder by right clicking in it..then
Open it to a open window.

Run winzip in classic mode and select 3 files from the scenery you've downloaded

S1.jpg (could also be called S2)
S1_1a.bmp (could also be called S2_1a)
"fieldname".wlp (very important)

Drag and drop them in the new fieldname folder you created
I tend to do it this way now as not all zip files create the scenery original folder,
which means all the files then get dumped into the WLP folder which is a pain

Reflex update version 5010 will convert S1.jpg or S2.jpg files to bitmap itself when it is generating the panoramic tiles(first time you load that scenery)
but for older version of Reflex you still need to convert the S1 or S2
main image file to a bitmap (approx 80MB) file first from a JPG file.Use a photo viewer that lets you load as JPG and save as Bitmap

If you have any problems with the scenery's crashing whilst
parsing first time you load them,always click ignore if you get the
Runtime visual C+ error box.
That the S1 and s1_1a files are in bitmap format
Also i've had to copy a wlp file from another airfield on some i've tried
If the airfield doesn't show up in the list of loadable ones in Reflex prog it usually means the wlp file is missing for that field
