P3D v3.1: F1 GTN series updated ;-)

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Good news from Flight 1!

Just run the F1 update tool to download latest version.

It works like a charm!

:smile:

Great news as I'm installing 3.1 from 2.5 today. It would be nice to "just run the update tool," if I knew what is was or where to find it. I uninstalled every program in 2.5 before uninstalling P3D itself. Have 3.1 now installed and I'm searching every product for updates. I think I've forgotten more than I know at this point. I don't update often so each time is a relearning process so could someone be kind enough to fill in the gaps here.

 

Found it.

I have run the updater tool to 1.03. V3 is listed. When I try to install the gauge however, I'm getting this "Error finding simulator path, you must have moved the folder without fixing the registry." I didn't move a folder. If I click ok, the GTN GUI opens and it says that I have two versions, v2 and v3. I uninstalled v2 and all the app data files so I know it's not there. I'm try to put it in the turbine  Duke V2.

I get the same thing happening to me when I try to use the Gtn update , have tried several times to update but keep getting a download timeout also with the sim path registry error so I went back to 3.0 until this gets straightened out. Maybe uninstall & then reinstall the gtn series is needed.The file that I am missing is actually in the correct location so I think I will probably uninstall & reinstall later on.

Update: Since the GUI did open. I selected V3 and then the Duke. The gauge does not install into the panel, but it is there as a pop up, views/instrument panel/GTN. It works fine, it's just not "installed."

If I were you I would go into the SimObjects\Airplanes\RealAir Duke Turbine V2 folder and delete F1GTN.ini, then go into the RealAir Duke Turbine V2\panel folder and delete F1GTNSTACK.ini and panel.cfg. Rename panel.cfg.f1 simply panel.cfg. Now start the Turbine Duke V2 P3D3 Config and add your GTNs on the GPS & Radios tab. That should put the GTN in the VC and you'll still have a pop-up to use the 2D GTN. If you need to configure things (like turn sound off or play click) you can now use the F1TGTNConfigP3D tool to make those chnges.

Hi Ron

 

Try disabling your anti-virus before conducting the update. After its updated, be sure to exclude both the GTN.exe and the GTN Updater from your your AV

 

Hope this helps
