Will it ever happen - QW-146 Update for P3d 3.*

Recommended Posts

Will it ever happen! I really liked to fly this and I miss using it.

The B1900 is ok but it is not the QW146!

Is there anything else like it?

 

If someone has managed to get it to install and run correctly with flaps and gear and fms I would like to hear how you managed to do it!

 

thanks

Works fine on my system with P3D 3.2. I think the main point

in getting it to work is to always start it from cold and dark.

Otherwise, I haven't done anything special. I had the flaps

problem very early on, right after I installed the 146 on P3D 3.1,

but I believe that happened when I did not start from cold and dark.

 

And you are right, it is a wonderful plane and a joy to fly.

The aircraft itself works perfectly, but even following the instructions I couldn't get the QW dispatcher to work :sad:

 There is an updated dispatcher in the forum, have you tried that by chance? Sorry, on my phone, otherwise I'd find you the link.

Thanks anyway! Wasn't even aware there was a new version. Once I knew what to look for, I downloaded it and all works like a charm. Kudos!

Great, glad you found it!  It had me stumped for a while as well a few months back until I stumbled upon it.

I`ve got the RJ working 100%, FMS,flaps and Gear all work great, but the 146 is broken, FMS will not display, also the landing lights do not work, wish they would patch it for P3d like the 757.

Totally agreed, this is an amazing a/c--especially that it includes the steam and glass variants. Hope that QW would put out an update!

 

Their 787 looks good but I'm actually more interested in the 146 / RJ for the types of flights I'm likely to do and that it dates from an earlier era is more interesting to me.

Thanks everyone - I will try the cold and dark start up and hope that it works.

Ok I did try the Cold and Dark option and I was surprised, Lights and gear work, this is good. Unfortunately Flaps and FMS are still non functional.

I took a flight and I was happy that at least I was able to complete it and as always it was a joy to fly.....

Nick if you assign a button or key to reload user object  in the P3d controls tab and refresh the aircraft a couple of times after the initial load you will find the flaps will work, also try and load the 146 with no panel state saved. FMC`s font is not compatible with P3d thats why it will not display.

thanks

That`s the Original updated for P3dv2, it will not work in P3dv3, the link i posted is the hack for making 1.4 updated for P3d v2 work in P3dv3.

I asked for a refund (no workaround have worked), I do not understand this company policy, they said they won't update the 146 until their boing is released... I mean how do you pretend that we will purchase another product from you, when you don't make the current ones to work with the most updated software?

While I feel your frustration as I have the 146 and still haven't gotten the flaps to work yet. I think you are a bit harsh. Qualitywings is not an operation like PMDG. They have day jobs and do this on the side. All you have to do to understand is look at the Aerosoft CRJ. They are a dedicated company with full time employees and are still dealing with bug after bug in the FMC of the CRJ. Now imagine a complex aircraft like the 787.

 

they will probably get around to the 146 after the 787 but they don't have time nor manpower to sit and hunt bugs in the 146 while trying to deliver the 787.

 

I'm disappointed as well because I love the 146 but I also understand software is a wicked mistress. I mean look at the number of posts on here about tweaking.

Yeah, I really miss the 146 and RJ in P3D v3

 

But still, I knew the risks moving to P3D. I suppose I could install FSX again but it just doesn't seem worth it. I also had to say goodbye to PMDG NGX as well as there is no way I'm paying full price and then some again to get it into P3D.

Thanks I will try this on the weekend.

Do you mean that flaps and MCP works 100% of the times under p3d v3.2 in your case?

 

Both Avro and BAe systems work for me.

Are you using p3d v3.2?

For how long did you tested it? I'm asking it because i believed the same the first day.. then the second day I hit the bugs that everyone else was talking about (flaps not working some time, aero-brakes, and MCP), and I believe a registry hack won't solve the issue (they will only make the installation and the dispatcher working fine), since the panels not working occasionally requires a modification of the product files.

You were spot on with the reload idea, it worked like a charm. On mine I did not even use a dark panel to start with and once I set a button to reload a couple of times after the first load up the flaps worked.... Thank you
