+1 ....  Is it compatible with P3DV4?    Will it be updated?    Sorry to insist, but this is a very important aircraft for the flightsim community.

Well that is certainly good news. Also good news is that although still under development, Pete Dowson has just released an initial version of FSUIPC5 for P3Dv4.

Hi Floyd,

Do you have any switch sounds?  I have it installed and flying great in V4 but no switch, gear, flap, etc sounds.  Not a big deal at all, just curious.  Can't wait for F1 to update the GTN.

Hi Matt

I have no switch sounds either. Funny thing is I didn't even realize it, until your post ;)

The Lear's load manager, sound and fuel dump gauges will not work in P3Dv4 until they're recompiled in 64 bit format.

Hi Folks,

It looks like one of the big new features is lights ? Anyone know if the landing/taxi lights are any better in v4 than they were in v3 ???

Thanks...

Regards,
Scott

I tried the MU-2, cockpit and cabin flood lights don't work, the lamp turns on, but no light. moreover the beacon light illuminates inside the cockpit in a reddish flavor. Other lights are great, I find them much better than V3.

I went to their site and submitted this question about their Learjet35A and P3Dv4:

Will you announce on your forum in AVSIM when FSW Learjet will be available for P3Dv4?
Or, via SimMarket?

I got this answer today:


Dear Customer,

All of our products are already state that they work for all versions of P3D. We do not need to announce anything. Check the requirements at any store. Should say "P3D All Versions".

Regards,
Customer service

P3D V4 is mostly about a scenery update and now 64 bit. The aircraft will not be effected. Our fuel manager installer may not work for V4 but the manual instructions on how to install it will work.

So yes our aircraft will work as we stated all version of P3D under requirements.

To close the loop between threads a bit on the P3Dv4 compatibility issue, in the Mitsubishi MU-2B update 2.4 thread, Flysimware followed up his earlier comment on P3Dv4 by saying:

I heard that DLL's may have an issue and the custom sounds and payload manager both use DLL's.

So i need to see if the developers of these are going to make new versions that i paid for.

The effects i have no clue why they would not work. Make sure they are in the correct location and try using a default as a test.

So things are being looked into and there's more info to come, I assume.

Wel, that was a private message, but i would kindly request to Flysimware Team a little patience with customers.   :ampun:

My experience with V4 has been very dramatic, i´ve reinstalled it several times because of incompatibilities and sceneries/aircraft not really updated that finally damaged something in the V4 core systems, leading to disaster... :blush:  So far, im very very carefull about installing addons into V4, so i make sure the developers "clearly" indicates that their products are fully compatible before attempting anything.   After all   "All P3D versions"   sounds to me like kind of ambiguous message found in several cases where products were actually not updated to V4.    In fact, the 2.9 installer is still not listing P3DV4, so there you go...

I really appreciate the hard work, i saw the message in the Facebook site about the PL manager updated to V4, so for sure i will add many more hours of flight to this wonderfull bird.  

What are you doing reading this?????   Lets go testing...! :gaul:

I tried to fly the Lear 35 in v4 yesterday and, as previously noted, some (most?) cockpit sounds were missing. Strangely, I also couldn't get the autopilot switches to stay "on" when clicking on them with the mouse. They would momentarily light up and depress when clicked, then immediately turn off. The main AP engage switch had the same behaviour when clicked with the mouse, but when I used my yoke button to engage the AP it stayed on. Very weird.

Anyone else have any trouble with the Lear 35 autopilot in v4?

Indeed no sound from the switches, inverters and others. I suppose that the "MT_XMLSound.gau" file in the panel folder needs to be updated to 64bit.

Have you heard about any update for the Learjet on 64bits?    Feels so abandoned...

Payload manager DLL for 64 bit is available now.

Custom sound module DLL for 64 bit is not available yet. But is getting updated.

Good morning, how about MT_XMLSound.gau for 64 bit promised?
The wait is very long!
Greetings.

Guys, it's only been one month. That's nothing in terms of product shelf life!

The planes are on sale and I'm leaning to the LJ35 but the silence about v4 updates and nothing on the spoiler bug has me hesitant to spend money. Is the developer still updating?

Yes, my understanding is FSW is still working on P3Dv4 updates, such as for the sound gauge, but it will take some time I expect.  FSW is a very small company.

I don't know what spoiler bug you are referring to -- is that a P3Dv4 issue?  I don't have any L35A spoiler problems in FSX.  The LJ35A is a great a/c IMO, as is the MU-2B. They are about the only a/c I fly these days (while looking forward to the Falcon 50).
