Thanks for the HU, Sascha!

I think there may be quite a load on their server, I am having a second bite at that 420 Mb, having seen a "network failure" halfway through the first round.

Thanks Sascha. Had no problems downloading the plane; now I have a certain "fear" of testing such a big plane!

Thanks for the heads up. There is also a Tu-134UBL. I think it's developed from the SCS model. 59721-Tu-134-UBL.zip is the file name on avsim.su.

I will let you know tomorrow WingZ. Don't really feel like doing much simming tonight (real tired).

Tried the Momentum Il-76 but wasn't prepared to install it correctly as I would've overwritten a number of files already in my FS. I didn't overwrite anything already in my FS and I put the gauges in the panel folder, got a bunch of virus warnings for many of the gauges which I ended up letting my AV disregard. Using this method of installation resulted in a crash as well.

Well I found no viruses but I get a CTD when loading the Il-76 into the sim. Displays in selection though.

Looks like it would be a good aircraft so hopefully someone gets it going or the author fixes what is likely one simple file/gauge causing the crash. Regarding the virus warnings, I didn't take them as serious and why I let everything go through. All the warnings were related to gauges which will typically set off some AV software. My method of installation certainly didn't guarantee success either so I wouldn't count my attempt as any true indication if the aircraft has a problem or not. It simply told me this is one aircraft that requires careful installation if I ever intend to install it in the future as it overwrites my FS files and doesn't appear to work if I don't.

Sweet bird. No issues with CTD but i could actually see why many reported this problem. Textures are extremely high.

 

Original textures:

Modified Textures:

This maybe the source to the problem. I shrunk the textures down using bmp2dxt3 then topped it off with Peter Nyman's dxtfixerx.

 

I uploaded the modified textures to my Dropbox and can be obtained here if you like. -----> https://www.dropbox.com/sh/djlstegubpeeix9/AAC8JY5LPGuyrzCIc4O3xq76a?dl=0

Great work Benzhangar! I think your assumptions and converted files could be right on the money to fix the problems.

I got both planes to work also, but the only the I did was change the [FLTSIM.0] (was in upper case) to [fltsim.0] (changed lower case).

 

PS: the Tu-134 UBL is a very nice plane also. No problems with that one.

Looks great Benzhangar, I'll get your files this evening and report back. I so hope I will get this working!

No joy. I still get a CTD. I can hear Engine sound for a second but at the point where the sim should load the visuals Boom!

Hi, I also experienced a CTD, with Benzhangars downscaled textures (many thanks by the way!), too. Windows protocols show a gauge "IL76TD.RADIO.GAU" as culprit. And as expected, after deactivating this gauge in the panel.cfg file the plane works. So what's wrong with this gauge? And what have you done, Joseph, to avoid this?

Excellent! Will try this asap.

I am sorry I installed the plane wrong. That's why I wasn't getting any CTD. But now I do get the CTD with the GAU error.

Hi, guys!

I am glad that Il-76 is interesting to you! At the moment, I have no simulator on the computer and therefore there can be errors in assembly as I have no opportunity to test everything :(

 

I will be glad, to answer all (or ANY :smile: ) your questions and to help with the solution of problems. :)

 

Best regards,

Ilya

Hi Ilya,

 

thanks for pitching in! I'm looking forward to flying this beautiful plane, I've been waiting for a VC version to come out for a long time :wink: !

 

Cheers,

Sascha

Ilya,

 

"interesting" is an understatement. We are eager to fly the Il-76! Thank you for any help!

Interesting...Also for FSX.

 

In FSX there are two panels, First panel cause CTD, Panel 2 Works well (in Volga Dnepr repaints).

Harald, I tried deactivating the radio gauge but still get a CTD. Can you send me your edited panel.cfg? The panel structure is confusing to me by the way, there are so mny additional cfg files.
