I have VoxATC running with my P3D V3. Used Prepar3D 2.5 before.

 

Just copied VA* from Drive:\Prepar3D v2\Gauges to Drive:\Prepar3D v3\Gauges and manually added gauges to Panel.cfg for each Aircraft I use.

Also copied VX* from Drive:\Prepar3D v2\SimObjects\Misc to Drive:\Prepar3D v3\SimObjects\Misc.

Finaly changed registry key AppPath and SetupPath for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2 to the root folder of Prepar3D V3.

 

I also did run setup.exe of version 6.52 and let it repaire.

 

After all this run Indexer, Panel Setup, runway number updater and indexer.

 

Please do it at your own risk. I'm not using V2 anymore so I do not care if V2 is working properly.

 

 

Regards

Patrick

My solution :

 

create P3DV2 directories Linked to P3DV3 (software, appdata\roaming\Lockheed Martin and programdata\Lockheed Martin) with :

 

mklink /d "XXX\Prepar3D v2" "XXX\Prepar3D v3".

 

Then install... And it works !

As much as I don't like to I will wait until he updates the installer, he's normally good when it comes to updating due to new sim versions.

Do you use both P3Dv2 and p3dv3 ?

Not anymore but I used to before v3.

 

What I have :

I:\prepar3d v3

I:\prepar3d v2 (created by mklink/d "I:\prepar3d v2" "i:\prepar3d v3")

 

And the same in %programdata%\lockheed martin and %appdata%\lockheed martin

I will try like you, and I will activate the link only when I will use p3dv3, not when I will use p3dv2.

Oups it may be difficult ! In your solution you'll have to rename all original "prepar3d v2" in something like "prepar3d v2 ori " before mklinking.

Ok I will wait the next version to do that... May be at this time I will be sure to not use p3d2.5 anymore...

Hi all,

 

while it generally works like described for me too, the First Officer does not tune the COM frequency. Anyone experiencing the same issue?

 

BTW: It also works in combination with Mytraffic 5.4c if the path is added to simobject.cfg as for all previous versions

That is a long wait .....

 

"Perhaps a couple of months"

That could be sometime in the first quarter 2016.

Then another month or so of testing VOXact to see if all is working properly in P3Dv3 flights with various aircraft.

 

I guess there are many changes in P3Dv3 that cause major problems for VOXatc to be compatible?

For me .. Seeing it could be a long time before I can test VOXatc in P3Dv3 ... I have read some good posts in Avsim forum on ProATC X which some users say works well with P3D v2.5 and P3D v3. May be a good time for me to try ProATC X ...

This is such a shame.

 

Having now ditched FSX and gone fully into P3D v3 I want to have a much more immersive ATC experience and this seems to fit the bill particularly with a demo period. But how long to wait?

 

I suppose I can give it a little time but there is no point in waiting forever.....

Voxatc is in the theory the best atc addon. But in the practic it need a deep revision for repair all the bug.

 

Someone say we will have a update soon. I hope the developer make a revision of all the problem, and not only make it compatible with P3D v3.

If not i will go for new atc addon, probably PFE.

I agree with you. For me, ATC voice recognition is a great achievement ... but VoxATC has two major problems: 1) approaches, ignores terrain altitude, 2) STAR not assigned correctly if it start before 60 nm to the destination (according to the rw in use: wind direction)

Alternatively I use ProATCX, that solves these problems ... but, as you all, look forward to a new version of VoxATC to fix these issues ... and some more, I consider minor

Same for me.

 

I just did a post on the PROatc forum and I see it has to be approved by a forum moderator .... did you guys have that also? Does each post have to be approved?
