Few Questions before jumping into the P3D Water

Recommended Posts

I got few question before I actually jump in the water with all of you guys.

Please note that all my questions refers to v1.3 or above.

 

1) I have Saitek Yoak/Rudder/Radio Panel, do they work well with P3D?

2) I have VoxATC on my FSX, did any one try it out on P3D?

3) are the "Control" Settings (settings your Contorls, e.g. buttons, Axis, etc) is easy an intuitive as FSX?

4) SquawkBox and/or FSINN work with P3D?

5) 737NGX w/SP1c works with P3D?

6) FS2Crew NGX Button Control works with P3D?

7) AES and/or GSX works with P3D?

8) *.PLN / *.FLT are the same format as FSX? i.e. if I have PLN files imported from FSX, would they work on P3D?

 

NOTE: all the question I asked regarding if they work on P3D should be a simple "YES/NO/Partial" Answer, you could add some comments, but I am not interested in Instruction on how to make it work.

those are my pre-req that needs to work for Migrating to P3D.

thanks a million guys.

 

P.S.

it would be best if you could answer in the following Formant:

 

1.Answer.....

2.Answer.....

3.etc.

 

and not in a one continuance answer as a regular Post as those kind of answers tend to miss things out.

I can only answer two of them:

 

3. Yes

8. Yes

 

As for 1. They should work as well unless they need FSUIPC, in that case you must install the latest FSUIPC version that has P3D support. I cannot answer for the other add-ons.

I don't use FSUIPC for the Saitek controls, so I belive they should work.

thanks for your answers man.

7. GSX yes, don't know about AES

1,3,5,6, YES

 

7. Even easier than moving, the P3D GUI allows you to browse to the FSX files in My Documents and select a plan from there.

SquawkBox

 

Yes and No. it does work but I get a SBtrans.dll unloading error when shutting down P3D. Sure it has something to do with the SB4 transponder dll and the P3D DLL.XML and file locations?> We all know , SB4 is not going to be upgraded.

as long as SB works while I am in P3D , I don't see this little hiccup as a problem.

other then when closing P3D, do you see any issues with the SB while running it in P3D?

Just finished building the P3D (after a clean Computer format)., installed UTX/GEX & FS Global..

so far works smoothly.

I will soo get to the VoxATC (by the EOW I believe).

I'll keep you posted.

I would be interested to know how you get on with VoxATC in P3D, as I use this exclusively now.

I haven't got there yet :)

I just finished installing the UT2 (which works great BTW).

I will get to VoxATC shortly.

Just out of curiosity. Have you tried accessing the addon menu, from the menus bar, for UT2 during flight? The reason I ask because I would get a menus.dll error on occasion when doing so. So I classified it as kinda works.

I didn't get that error.

what type of action from the menu bar you tried doing?

I tried number of actions and they all worked fine.

like increasing Traffic, restart traffic, Stop/Start Traffic... all those worked fine for me.

OK, Finlay I got the time to Install my complete set of VoxATC into Prepar3D.

the following were installed / tested:

1. VoxATC

2. VoxPOP Server/Voices

3. IVONA2 Voices

4. UT2 AI Traffic injection by VoxATC (UT2 native engine Disabled)

5. IFR Flight (NGX) from Gate - to - Gate (LLBG-->OJAI)

6. Tested VoxATC w/FO

7. Tested VoxATC w/o FO

 

Installation of VoxATC v6.06 + VoxPOP Server/Voice Packs went smoothly (thanks to the "FSX to Prepar3D Migration Tool").

I loaded at the gate at LLBG (D4). loaded a flight plan which I had ages ago (same FP i used once with VoxATC in FSX).

since P3D loads directly into a flight and not to the main menu, one must load the FP while on the tarmac then save the flight (menu -> save), only then you press "Enable" VoxATC.

 

All my UT2 Traffic were injected correctly by VoxATC.

 

AI / AI voices communicated correctly with the VoxATC controller and vise versa, and following VoxATC controller's directions.

 

VoxATC read all the AIRAC installed and assigned me with SID/STAR and RW.

 

VoxATC 1st Officer worked fine and communicated correctly with VoxATC, so did the voice recognition; me the pilot communicating with ATC (w/o 1st Officer).

I got clearance, PB/Engine Start, taxi, takeoff, etc. from VoxATC Controller.

 

I was handed correctly to all the controllers (Ground, Tower, Departure/Approach, Control)

 

Landed at OJAI once got cleared by Tower. and taxi to the gate once got cleared by ground.

 

the Guidance lights were fired as expected for both taxi from the gate and to the gate and I completed the flight without an issue.

 

overall based on that single flight I did, it seems VoxATC works fine with P3D.

Where/How do you get this migration tool? I'm also looking to get PP3D?

 

Thanks!

well , that is not totally correct as I found out the hard way.

http://forum.avsim.n...p3d-pln-format/

 

After reading that thread, it seems that you have a bunch of FS9 pln files, which are text based as opposed to xml schema based. Any flight plan natively generated by FSX will be read by P3D.

Ya. Those are FS2004 flight plans FS9.1. FSX/Prepar3D requires XML.

AppVersion=9.1.40901
