Bring FSX 172 to P3D?

Recommended Posts

Do I just copy the aircraft & panel files from FSX to P3D to bring the default Cessna 172 to P3D V2?

I did it and now I have a black screen!

In the prepar3D.cfg simply change FullScreen=True to False


You must have exited out of the sim in full screen mode. It is a known issue and LM are working on a fix.

It's good that someone posted a thread like this. My suggestion to anyone having issues or low frame rates with P3d2 is to copy the FSX 172 over to P3d2 and use the trusty 172 for tuning purposes. It has a very low impact on frame rates and memory use, when compared to newer and more complex aircraft.

Where are you getting the black screen? Does P3d2 start up that way? If so, edit your Prepar3d.cfg file and look for this line under [uSER INTERFACE]:


SITUATION=C:\Users\<your user name>\Documents\Prepar3D v2 Files\<whatever is your default flight>


Now change it to:




and restart P3d2. This will get you back to LM's default flight. Run P3d2 and change the aircraft to the FSX Cessna 172. See if that works. You can also change this line:




and try running the C172 from the scenario window startup.
