What's this about a C337 2.0?

Recommended Posts

From looking at the video, can't say it looks much different from the old one.  Higher resolution?

That'd be nice.  It'd be nice to see a new cockpit arrangement with a new autopilot.  It's still a great airplane but lots of opportunities to make it better.

It would be great if they added options for the GTN 750/650. I believe this was one of the last Carenado birds without an installer for third party avionics. It's also one of my favorite Carenado planes.

I fly mine with an RXP GNS530 in the panel.  Was one of the best planes, when it first came out.

Lots of "character".. :cool:

In the video the Collins Nav is now correctly labeled (not "Com"), but the LDG switch still shows LOG.

The textures for the fuel selector look much better.

The ADF now seems to have a standby frequency, which is nice.

The colors of the fuel pump switches have wrong colors.

I'll send them an email.

And the video shows the O2 (military) variant.

How did you get around the in-place 3d knobs?

It came with an RXP integration exe file.

Works cleanly.

Where did you see that? I only saw the standard 337 in the old military look.

It would be great if they would include a real O-2!

Oops, sorry ... I did not look close enough. Yes, that's the old 3044.

Does anyone know when the V2 is coming out? All I saw in their facebook page was coming out soon?

Just announced this morning on Facebook.  Downloaded, installed and did short flight this morning.  Noted problem with nav lights and submitted ticket to Carenado.  Otherwise, latest version is quite nice and accepts repaints from prior version.

Yes, I always uninstall/reinstall on updates.  Problem spotted only with nav lights on wings and tail, no other on a daylight flight.  Lights are modeled in so its up to Carenado at this point.

Carenado responded that I need to change my DX settings.  I don't think so.

I'm running DX9 and have no desire to go to DX10.

I responded to them to clarify.  If v2.0 is DX10 compliant only, then I'm going to reinstall v1.0.  Hope not for this update or any other future updates.

My v1.0 is from a DVD purchased at Fry's... has anybody upgraded a Carenado product bought via media?  Is it possible to upgrade?

Thanks,

Greg

The external lights are not Dx10 compatible and running the Fixer fx scan doesn't fix the issue. Back to v.1 I think.

Ugh, it's re-releases like this that remind me why I haven't bought anything from fspilotshop in years.  V2 is not in my account (yet) and even if it was, they want a $5 fee to reactivate my download...that's completely unreasonable nowadays, bandwidth just doesn't cost that much and I think they're the only flight sim store that doesn't offer unlimited downloads.  Never again.  (end rant)

Anyway, excited to see this released, I'll get myself into it one way or another, such a cool unique aircraft.

I thought the same, but usually they bump the timeout to another year when there is an update.

I bought the Flysimware C402C there in 2014:

File Last Updated: Tuesday, 21st March, 2017 @ 07:10am

Free file backup ends:Wednesday 21 March, 2018

This aircraft was updated by Flysimware on 16th March, so not much of a delay.

Installed - no landing lights and taxi light illumination. This makes it a day plane only. I have tried both dx9 and 10 and it is broken. Also the menus they added are a little messed. If you look at it you will see the shift + menus don't match what they say. Every time they touch something they break something:angry:
