Good day to you. I'd like to know who's using ACLoader and what you think of it.I'd also like to know which VA's are using it, and if the financial reporting is useful, and if the program halps in your operations.

Anniette,GaugeClean looks at everything under the aircraft directory and subdirectories and sees what gauges are used. It then can delete the unused ones, or move them to wherever you want. I have the moved to another directoru named...ready for this?...Unused Gauges. ;-)It will delete standard (.gau) gauges, or compressed (.cab) ones. I don't have it checking for .xml gauges yet.

I DO use ACLoader, and I think it's great. well tought and very intuitive to use, with a very friendly interface, I am not sure if I am using the latest version, but I would like to have also the possibility to use it with my favorite AC wich is the Dassault F50. And frm here in the officec, I don't recall that is fully configurable with 3rd party AC. I will also suggest the possibility to backup the original configuration before it is modified.Bottom Line: great work, between my favorites, (and I'm including FDC and FSFlightmax in the list also...)Keep up the good work!!Still waiting for Radar Contact V.3! When?????????

Gabriel,Thanks.ACLoader does write a backup file, aircraftcfg.bak. It writes it once if it's not been made before. You can always delete aircraft.cfg and rename aircaftcfg.bak to aircraft.cfg.You can make an aircraft data file for use with any aircraft. ACLoader doesn't care what you have. It's all done in the program.RC v3 is in final testing and doc writing phase. It'll still be a while.

Bruno,Thanks. It's gotten way out of date. When I get the time, I'll be updating everything.

Nice program, nice support. A must for everyone that wants to feel how the plane reacts with different weights. What I miss in it is a fuel calculator. Never tried the money component.Jos

Looks like a really neat program. Does it work with DF734? I ask this as DF734 already has a load manager program, but I'm interested in the revenue/operating cost aspect.Thanks, Adam

Adam,Theoretically, ACLoader should work with anything. The only problem it has with 2K2 aircraft is that is modifies the ref_datum_point, which changes the eyepoint. V4 will fix that.

Yes, I do know it of course :-) :-) But I do not use it?Nothing to do with the quality or features... or perhaps it has.. For my kind of flying, it has too many features ;-)I just do bush flying hops in old Beavers, DC-3's and such, very often not even finishing the trips... and many 'tests' when looking at add-ons (scenery, utilities, new aircraft). Not the sort of work that allows me to use ACLoader, FSMaintenance and the likes.But..... it IS a good program and I AM looking forward to your new release ! :-)Bye Scott :-wave :-outta Francois :-wave[table border=0 cellpadding=10 cellspacing=0][tr][td valign=bottom" align="center]"At home in the wild"[/td][td valign=bottom" align="center][link:avsim.com/alaska/alaska_052.htm|Don's Alaskan Bush Charters]"Beavers Lead the Way"[/td][td valign=bottom" align="center][link:www.avsim.com/vfr_center/mainpages/vfr_flights_main_page.htm]VFR Flight Center]"Looking Good Outside"[/td][/tr][tr][td valign=top" align="center]http://bfu.avsim.net/sigpics/logo75b.gif[/td][td valign="top" align="left" colspan=2]http://www.fssupport.com/images/moose2.gif[/td][tr][/table]________________________Francois A.

HiI never use FS flightplan. Usually I fly VATSIM so I go to the VACC and get the flightplan from there. The flightplans usually are reals ones in the form fixe route fixe like:LPMA LPPT A319/M 01H35MN M078 F360 SNT UN745 NARTA DCT GANSUThat means that the info I have is:flight time or distance;Flight level;From NOAA the aloft wich allow me to calculate the mean wind during flight;Aiplane Gross weight;What I miss is a easy to use program that allow me to calculate the fuel. I know pilot assistant but it is a excel spreadsheet. I'm using Keroplan, nice program but doesn't take in consideration all these factors.Jos

Francois,Yes, ACLoader is really more for passenger and cargo hauls with something a but larger than GA aircraft.I've never tried with the DC-3 though, since I don't have one. Given the popularity of the the plane, I should make sure it works with it.Heather is using ACLoader with the DC-3 I think, and I've not heard from her about it.Hopefully V4 will be more simple to use.

...I have had over 15,000 downloads of the thing since Version 1 and there are only a couple people who posted that they use it.Where's the other 14,997?

I use ACLoader and I love it. I use it for every single flight and I will continue to use it too...I hope that you add more commercial aircraft that are not in the program. I would also like to participate in any beta testing if you are going to do any of that before the release. I would like to see a fuel calculator as well that can be incorporated with just the load planning based on distance etc. cheers...email me if you need any help with anything.

One of the missing dowloaders, here....Right now, the biggest thing I fly with anything approaching regularity is a King Air so I don't use it anymore. When I was flying larger aircraft, I was using it all the time. Fantastic utility which I'd not fly one of those huge, lumbering beasts without.
