Project Freeware DC-9s - can they work in FS2002?

Recommended Posts

I tried to load up a couple of my old FS2000 DC-9s from Project Freeware tonight but (despite the FS Edit treatment) they wouldn't load as the MODEL wasn't accepted by FS2002 ... 3rd party, not compatible, etc. Two quick questions:1. Are Project Freeware no more? Can't find them.2. If so, has anyone produced a fix for these aircraft? They're lovely planes, and it would be sad to lose them. I have more modern releases but one or two of theirs are very special.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitak.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/reds.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitakv3.jpg

Duhhhh ... when all else fails, engage brain, right ....?!But I have to say I didn't know they were back in action, so didn't think of the obvious route. Wow. I live this hobby far too many hours a day but can miss something so important. Ah well, thanks, Pete.The bottom line, after combing the forum, is that I have to use 'MDL Repair' on some of their FS2000 planes to get them to work in FS2002. Bill Klemm has also posted a LIGHTS fix there so we're in business, I hope. I gather there may be full upgrades in due course.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitak.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/reds.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitakv3.jpg

So, you found MDL Repair? That works. The DC-9s do work in FS2002, and we have a kit similar to the 737 update, that will remove the original lights, and add the FS2002 type. That should be out soon.Also, paint kits are now available for the DC-9s and 737s. :)"Bill" Klemm :-lol

Dear William Klemm (may I call you Bob?)Yes, it works a treat, Bob, thanks. I'm still reeling from the fact that I didn't know you were alive again. I LOVE my DC-9s. Winged your Austrian lady on my favourite little test run Salzburg/Innsbruck last night with Marco Diaz' Paul Golding panel conversion and had a wonderful flight. Terrific, and I look forward to everything PF produces. Well done.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitak.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/reds.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitakv3.jpg

Thanks Mark. Keep an eye on the Avsim library. The user repaints are starting to show up too, and they look great! :)
