Metroliner - Jon Murchison

Recommended Posts

I downloaded Jon Murchison's Metroliner III model (met3pasr.zip). The program uses self-installers, one for the actual plane and the other for the panel. But after running both, making sure to specify the correct path for each, I noticed that there was no 'Panel' folder created. The panel installer only adds instruments to the 'Gauges' folder. Not surprisingly, no panel appears when selecting this plane to fly. I tried using the default King Air panel, but only about half or less of the instruments are functional. Does anybody have a decent panel they're using with this aircraft?Tawni

I just downloaded it and installed it - using both exe installers and it did indeed create a panel folder where it should be.I accepted the default paths the installers suggested (the panel one points to gauges) and all was well. The gauges were copied to the gauge folder but it also created the panel folder in the METROLINER-PASSENGER folder as it it was supposed to.If you cannot get it to work, this is a link to the same panel - it is by the author mentioned in the package.http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID...&DLID=37931I tried them both and all was well.Hope this helps.

Hi, Dave~Thanks for that link; I got it working with that panel. Very quirky plane to fly, the panel was a bit challenging to use as well. Seems like some common functionality (eg, dialing in desired climb/descent rates on the AP) are missing. Or perhaps I just missed it. Anyway, thanks again! :( Tawni

Jon's is way out of date, For a more accurate model check out Mike Stone's Metro. If you love the Metro as much as I do, check out www.bsmp.co.nz they have a real gem on the horizon ;)
