Accu-Feel V2 for Prepar3D V3

Recommended Posts

Updated Original Post to Install A2A Accu-Feel 

==========

To Install A2A Accu-Feel follow the steps below 

1 Right click on the Accu-Feel Installer and Run as Administrator.    2 The Installer will tell you that  "FSX Installation not found"  This is ok, Navigate to your main Prepar3D V3 folder.   3 This is perfect, Click Next and follow the simple steps.

I have now installed Accu-Feel,   but I will now need to add a Command Entry in my dll.xml so Accu-Feel will Launch with Prepar3D 

The file you need to find is located below..........

Computer ► Local Disk (C:) ► Users ► You ► AppData ► Roaming ► Lockheed Martin ► PreparD v3   dll.xml

If there is no dll.xml file in this Location, You can create one, follow the steps. 

4 Right Click anywhere on the White bit,   Click New, Click Tex Document.   5  As you can see your new file by default is called New Text Document.txt.   I will Right Click and Rename it to dll.xml

6  Right Click on your new dll.xml file,  Down to Open with,  Click into Notepad.   7 As you can see, I have already Pasted the Command Entry into my dll.xml file.  I will now Click File and Save (Top left)

Note: the Image number shows 20 lines of Tex,  The first 6 lines is your Header Code, This will look the same in every dll.xml file in this location,  The last 14 lines is your Accu-Feel Launch Entry

That's it, Launch Prepar3D and away you go.

You can Copy and Paste the below Tex directly into your dll.xml file.   Note:  If you already have a dll.xml file in this Location you can just Copy and Paste the last 14 lines into the bottom of your dll.xml file  (Accu-Feel Entry) 

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="WINDOWS-1252"?>

<SimBase.Document version="1,0" Type="Launch">

I was interested in this product too, more for the environmental effects on the airframe. Any good?

Thanks for checking this out Elaine. Too bad A2A does not have a true P3D version. Maybe they will in the future.

Looks like a really good app and I will consider purchasing if they fully support the product for P3D v3. I am kind of funny that way.

Yes very good,  you get the shaking on Stalls and hear the winds fighting against the frame and that.  The lose cabin sound is very nice.  Loads of niceties to play with. 

 

In the coming days i will install my Flight1 Superking again and try that

Well that's true Mike,  i would much rather do it naturally alight.  Hopefully i will get a discount when repurchasing the V3 installer  (oh i can just see the threads now)  :smile:

A2A makes great products, it's a shame they won't update some of the older stuff to be compatible with v3

Yeah it works great, except that it causes my NGX to bank wildly to one side upon touchdown. Switching it off for the 737 solves that.

I always turn this off for PMDG.  You need to also customize for RA too, since it models some effects already.

I use Accufeel mainly just for the tyre screech sounds. I untick the "aircraft" section and turn off the turbulence generation as I find ASN replicates the bumps better than Accufeel.

 

I have Accufeel switched off globally when using any recent RealAir addons. No need for it IMO. The RealAir flight dynamics and environmental sounds/fx are great on their own.

Hi Folks,

 

Someone mentioned to me that the AccuFeel package improves water handling physics of seaplanes - can anyone confirm or deny that ??? Anyone who has used a seaplane in MSFS/P3D knows it doesn't come anywhere near replicating what water is really like - to the point I avoid seaplanes in general... Would this make the water anywhere closer to real ???

 

Thanks - any info appreciated...

 

Regards,
Scott

Ahh, so it is a known conflict? I googled this and didn't find much info on others having the same landing problem for the NGX. I don't have any RA planes so thats ok for now.

From what I've read, they both work separately. Accufeel enhances the perception of turbulence already applied into the simulator while ASN directly amplifies this effect in the simulator before it reaches the plane.

 

I use ASN with enhanced turbulence set to on as well as Accufeel and Ezdok and I think its still not too much.

 

Maybe because I don't fly any light aircraft/GA.

Agreed. I think it has something to to with their licensing deal with LM, as far as the planes are concerned. Why they won't simply make a P3D Accufeel installer, I will never understand.

Hi,

 

Did you make it working on P3D-V3.2 too? 

 

Personally, I installed the "P3D-V3.2 client" only and it worked. Then I installed the "P3D-V3.2 content" and now, P3D crashes at the end of the scene generation (When all things are loaded, I have a black screen and then P3D crashes).

 

For this I use the standard P3D default scenario.

 

Windows event observer indicates it is A2A-feel.dll that crashes. And it crashes systematically at the same moment.

 

So, what is your experience regarding this? And can you help me on this?

 

Thanks.

 

Patrice.

Hi Patrice, 

 

I had the same problem, updated P3D 3.2 client and all was fine, but then after updating the content installer, a crash every time.

 

Turns out, in my case, it was "Addon Manager" that needed to be updated and was causing the crash, not Accu-Feel.

 

I can report Accu--Feel still works just fine, even after the 3.2 updates, on my machine.

 

Assuming you have "Addon Manager" installed, update it by downloading their installer here:

 

http://fsdreamteam.com/products_addonmanager.html

 

If you don't have this installed, try investigating other dll's.... start with disabling each one in the dll.xml and re-enabling each to see which is the problem.  This is how I found out mine.

 

Good luck, hope you get it working!

Same here - actually forgot to uninstall it - oops
