SPAD for P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

Anyone had the free version of SPAD working in P3Dv4, or know if it's going to be possible?

SPAD does not work with P3Dv4.  It has not been development for quite some time and I have not heard or read of any updates planned and from personal experience.  I see your options are using drivers that come with your equipment (if the manufacture has them), use FSUIPC or SPADnext.

There is a new version SPAD.neXt 0.9.6  for P3D v4 available which I am using and works well, there are some minor issues outstanding. Visit https://www.spadnext.com/forum/ - I am using the Home use version which requires a paid licence.

I tried spad next and to be frank, the U.I and how it works with multiple bridges and extras and profiles and god knows what else is utterly confusing. 

Too bad the the old spad doesn't work as it's painless and simple,

fsuipc won't drive the saitek panels on its own unfortunately. That would have been ideal from the start.

I've tried SPAD.next and I also found it to be extremely difficult to use.

I find SPAD.next to be invaluable and use it across P3Dv3, P3Dv4, and X Plane 11 with no issues except waiting on a Lvar fix for v4 that the developer is actually waiting on P3D for. The auto profile switching, access to all Lvars, text to speech built in for controller commands and plugin links to Voice Attack are tremendous.

Justmy opinion...

Probably the most unintuitive piece of software in flight simming I have ever had the misfortune of using!

I use it on every flight. It's a must for me.
