Is anybody running this in P3D v2? Any issues?

 

Tried it - does not work

Actually saw a couple other reports suggesting that it does work alright in P3D v2.

 

Picked it up on sale, and at first glance it seems to function normally in P3D v2.4 -- if I find any issues I'll post back here but it seems to work fine.

Hmm I could not get it to work properly - good luck with it

It happens. Probably very similar to the troubles I am having with CS777 (works fine in Legacy Mode).

I just checked the Cera 222 and there was no problem to get it to work. Installed it like any other aircraft that works without the EMT. I made it ready to fly via the animation panel an there you go everything was working as intended. Flew a few patterns without any probs.

 

What in particular is not working?

Guess these people lost interest... A bit rude if you ask me...

 

Anywho, this is a few months old, but can you let me know if one must do anything in particular to install these in P3D? Like run a conversion tool or something?

 Hello Raven,

 

yeah it´s hard these days to get a response from the major helicopter devs. Nemeth does not answer questions concerning the problems of their latest BK 117 and Cera seems to refuse questions concerning P3D2.

 

Anyway it is easy as is just point the installer to the P3D2 location. No EMT or else is required.

It can be installed and used, but some of the sounds are missing. The sounds it can't find are in the folder as they should be, but for some reason the simulator can't find and use them. Are you saying you are getting all the sounds such as the warning alarms when the power is swithched on?

Althought the Bell 222 is flyable, there are some things that do not function. if you have seen how it works in FSX you will notice these.

 

Cheers,

Thad

Well, actually I was talking about the people asking you and then never providing feedback again :D

 

Anywho, thanks for the info, I will try it out once I purchase my copy of P3D.

So what would the best copter that works fine 100% in P3D 2.5 be?

That would depend on what your definition of "best copter" would be. Milviz has a selection of helicopters that are made 100% for Prepar3D, Alabeo has a R66 and Flysimware has a few other offerings. I've seen some also being showcased on the AirDailyX website, but I'm not sure who makes them. Google search will be your friend to help you out. If you find something that might interest you, Google a review of it. Hope this helps.

I guess best would be in terms of realism (I don't suppose the dodosim works). I'll check those out, thanks!

I have heard from those that use it that the Milviz MD 530F is excellent. I don't have it myself, but those that do seem to rave about it.

BTW i have the MV B407 as well as the 530F. Both are great choppers and they are native P3D2 models. The 407 is a bit harder on the frames than the 530F but still good to fly around in orbx country.

 

I terms of reality i cant say as im not an real world rotor head. The sim has its limitations anyway but they are worth every penny at least for me. Besides the MV P3D2 natives i have the Nemeth/MV Bell 205, CH-47, CH-64 Cera Bell 212/412 222 H-60 and a couple Nemeth and Virtavia choppers. All work well in P3D2.

 

And there is a blade slap mod out there which works perfect with P3D2 and the mentioned choppers.

Like MickeyJ dodosim works for me as well. I followed these instructions.

3rd last post on page 1 , then installed legacy version of simconnect . The simconnect files are in the redistributable folder of the LM installation folder. You can check what version of simconnect you have installed by going to the control panel in windows and go to the uninstall programs folder.

The simconnect version installed by p3d 2.5 ( i have no previous versions of p3d ) does not allow full functionality of dodosim on my system .
