Thank you Team 7 for the Dash 7!!!

Recommended Posts

I just spent the last hour trying out the new plane. I love it! Looks great and flies great and I can't argue the price. I will be spending plenty of time in this one. Looking forward to more creations from you guys. Thanks again!

Got to agree as well :D ...another gem to fly and have fun with! Guess M$'s airplane builders are now sitting in front of their 'puters open-mouthed and wondering what dedicated freelance designers made of their simulation!

Anniette,Is that all you can think about, is painting these models? ;) Everyone else talks about how nice they fly and how they look and function and you just want to paint them. Got to love it, lucky for us, you enjoy it so much. :-jumpy Looking forward to what you can do with this bird.

Help,It's the weekend and I'm so looking forward to flying this baby. Thanks for all your great efforts in creating this. I wish I had all your skills and patience.I have installed it as per usual and everything comes up in the display windows. However, after I select 'Fly Now', the sim automatically closes and returns to the desktop. This is the only plane that does this out of my 48...Do any of you guys and girls have any idea why this could be. Do I need to turn off any display feature to get past the 'Fly Now' screen and into the Sim?Any help to get me into the cumulus will be much appreciated.:-beerchugCheers,Moth.EGLL

Ouch! Moth!What video card are you running? What Directx version? At least 8.0?If its an older Voodoo, you may try one of the optional texture formats available right here at AVSIM.There are three: 8 bit, 16 bit, and 32 bit with reflections.Filenames are dhc78.zip, dhc716.zip, and dhc732.zip.I would recomment the 8 bit first and if that works, (Yeah!) then try the 16 bit.These are skin textures only and not a full replacement for the 3 liveries. Just unzip and pop these into the existing folders to overlay the DXT3 skins.Hope this helps. Let us know. :-)Milton

Milton,Thanks for your response. I have a Leadtek Winfast Ti4400 128mb graphic card.I have DirectX 8.1 too.Will I need to d'load these optional textures as a result of this particular card?Many thanksMothEGLL(I'll respond later as I got to go to the movies now with the girlfriend!)

...well, not to the plane itself actually. Is there any FS 2002-compliant scenery for that airfield at Courchevel, as depicted in the documentation? Sure would like to give it a try after humming back and forth over Greenland today :-) .Cheers,

Moth,I seriously doubt that this is a texture issue. Sounds more like either a panel sound issue or a stereo/mono combination issue.Do you have (OldModules) section in your FS2002.cfg with FSSound.dll=1?Some nicer sound cards may also experience issues with mixing stereo and mono sounds depending on the setup. You might try deactivating the sounds to see if the crash still occurs. If so, then we will need to provide an alternate set of sounds converted to all stereo or all mono.Edited after seeing your other post regarding crashes when flying anything after 8 minutes:It could be that your other problem is pronounced with the Dash 7 due to its size. How does your system respond to other "heavily-sized" aircraft?Let me know please. :-)Milton

Comment #1 : this plane is absolutely fantastic! Love the panel, model, dynamics - everything. Thank you!Comment #2: Moth, I also had the crash when clicking "Fly Now!" It turned out to be a panel issue and re-installing all the guages from the distribution ZIP and overwriting the existing copies corrected the problem. Hope this helps,Philip.

Does anybody know about any AFCAD files for those French "altiports"? I cannot create any flightplans beginning there, because they do not have runway definitions in the same way regular airports do. Tried loading them into AFCAD myself, but when searching for these places via ICAO code AFCAD comes up blank.

Philip,Thanks for the heads-up. I overwrote all the gauges that needed overwriting (just 4 did), and it all works perfectly now! Good man!I tend never to overwrite gauges as normally other panels that need those particular gauges become effected - especially if the dates of the gauge update are different. Hopefully this won't be the case! I've done a back up in any case.Thanks to you too Milton for your thoughs and of course you and your team for the Dash!Happy Dash 7 flying everybody :-coolMothEGLL
