Need Acceleration package for FSX?

Recommended Posts

I currently own FSX Deluxe and have added SP1 and SP2. I usually fly civil aircraft and belong to several VA's. I have e ton of add on aircraft and scenery, along with ASN. Recently, I saw the VRS F18 Superbug and it intrigued me. I am thinking of joining a virtual navy organization with that aircraft. I want to be able to take off and land on carriers and do carrier ops. I saw on one of the military VA sites that you need FSX Acceleration to do this. My question is, can you do it without the Acceleration pack? I don't want to risk messing up my current installation, and definitely don' t want to have to start from scratch and reload everything. If I can't use default or AI carriers without the Acceleration pack, are there any pay ware carriers that would work without it? Can anyone help?

Ok, so I can't use any pay ware carriers without Acceleration package? And if I install the Acceleration package, will it mess up my scenery and addons?

Acc has the whole carrier things hardcoded, I harly doubt that it will work without. As for the installation you should go for an clean install. I have no other knwoledge of this as I had installed it just lately when my main HDD broke down and I had to set up everything again.


Best regards, Steffen

You should be able to install it on a mature system, but you should likely uninstall sp2 first.

If you really want to do the "Full" carrier operations, launch and recovery, you will need

 

Acceleration.  I have FSX Standard and am able to use some Acceleration aircraft

 

( I will occasionally get CTDs as stated by the authors) but can fly them and land on

 

AI carriers.  I have no launch capabilities.  Most freeware aircraft, with tail hooks,

 

can do carrier landings without Acceleration.

That is my understanding.

 

You might want to do a backup first.. just in case something screws up..

I uninstalled SP2 and then installed Acceleration. It didn't corrupt anything. Installed the Superbug with TacPack without a hitch. Thanks for all your help!
