Well I was doing a little flying, the major issues I had were sound and the disconnect of the generator when coming out of reverse and that seems to be fixed and the sounds are better, but having never flown on a C130 I cxant say if they are exactly as they are on the real plane. I have enjoyed the C130 since it's release and it seems it is getting better. The ACE also has a few more options under cockpit. I like to get rid of 2d views which was there and now you can get rid of the reflective glass if you want which I do. You can also pick EICAS or classic engine instruments.Thats all I have so far.

Where its very hot there is a snowball thats not melting.New sounds,manuals and the thrust reversers work.I pinched myself to be sure but I am really glad to see what I see so far as a very postive move in the right direction.Congrats CS.

How can I download it without having to repurchase? I don't see a link for version 1.1.Dave F

I uninstalled 1.0 first, then installed 1.1, everything works fine for me. Make sure you empty your temp folder before installing, just in case.Jeff

Tim,I just reinstalled on top of version 1.1. Works great. Please, beware that the aircraft manually added to the aircraft.cfg will disappear, so backup the aircraft.cfg first and copy/paste the added aircraft later on.Henri

Just downloaded and installed over the existing version and have no problems at all. Didn't have any repaints so didn't have to cut and paste. Seems to run great! They might have missed some things given how fast they got this out but it seems like they fixed the biggies and then some. Time to add some repaints. :-)billg

Downloading as we speak. For those that were wondering above about seeing a "link to v1.1", if you log into your account on Captain Sim, you'll note that the version you had before was entitled csc130_1000.exe at a size of 76.8 MB. The new version is csc130_1100.exe and is 86.6 MB in size. As stated above your ACE utility also enables the download :-)I am looking forward to flying with the EICAS . . . and with reversers fixed this should be a VERY sweet experience!KPUB . . . here I come with the 302nd . . .

Hoping I dont have a major problem here :-(Wa sitting there right after loading her up and was adjusting the heading when FS crashed and I got a nasty message telling me that my "video card quit responsing properly" and to reset the computer to restore display.I just downloaded a new nvidia driver that was released actually just yesterday -- going to try again after this install of drivers and a windows update. Apparently a new version of the .NET framework came out too -- maybe that will help.Wish me luck . . .

Seems the updates either worked or that crash was just a fluke LOL -- and now that my computer stayed stable all i can say is WOW!!!I love the EICAS, I love the sound improvements and I LOVE having reversers back. It felt good to nail an 8R landing again!!!!Sounds and reversers were the only issues I was having and now they are FIXED!!! With BONUSES!!!Thanks, Captain Sim!By the way -- anyone know if they have any plans to do the glass cockpit version of the C-130 at a later date? I'd happily pay for such an expansion.

I still can't get the configurator to save my settings, fuel and payload don't save?

>I still can't get the configurator to save my settings, fuel>and payload don't save?They only save if you use ACE to launch FS. I keep trying to save the red dome light and it doesn't want to save. Yet for some reason my loadout and EICAS did save just fine. Still happy with the dynamics though.Tomorrow I will just look up the line in my CFG and change the dom light illumination meself :-)BTW -- happy "dead bird on a plate with lot's of other food" day, everyone.

you mean, happy killed a lot of natives and stole their land day? :) I am not a fan of this holiday but it is nice to get a long weekend from work.So the ACE doesn't save if you don't hit launch FS? ugh. And is the red dome light realistic?

Seems appropriate.Happy Caloric Overload DayBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

Seems like the ACE launches the "Previous Flight" when uou "Fly Now" from Save. So, what I do is this.1. Start fs the normal way2. Load Cessna with everything off at the place/time I wanna fly the Herk3. Quit fs with Ctrl + c4. Start Herc flight from ACEI like to continue from where I left fs anyway, so normally I load the Cessna before I quit just to get a nice ac reset before I load some complicated aircraft. That way starting from ACE is no problem :).Eagle
