Q400 Immersion and new 64bit V4.1

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Now that the Q400 has been released for V4.1 I'm trying to install the immersion pack for this.

But when installing it gives the following error: 'You need to have at least one compatible simulator installed to use this product. Please refer to your product's manual'

Is this package not ready for 4.1? 

Or is there something wrong on my side?

 

thx for your help!

Oops.  I just bought this with the hopes of having it on my v4 Q400.  Still keeping it though.  Will the update cost anything as well or do they usually do these sorts of updates free?

I am curious as to when this will be updated as well. Did not even think about it not being compatible when I bought it. Oops.

Same. I jumped the gun on the purchase. These guys are on top of their stuff though. I'm not too worried about the Q400 catching up.

If you spend absolutely no time looking at external views, then I would say you should look at some videos before you buy. I think the main things you would see from the cockpit view alone are the volumetric landing lights (including a volumetric rain effect.) For me even that is a nice upgrade, but I do also like to enjoy some external views when possible.

I still can't install mine :/ 

What leads you to say that? Install is failing or you don't see it in the list?

Do I have to download VFXCentral again? I have a feeling I'm missing something! :biggrin:

Make sure your registry entries are pointing in the right direction in VFXCentral > Preferences > Registry Editor

That's what I was thinking was registry entries on his.  Mine installed just fine :) 

And FYI Thank you to the awesome developers for this cool product :)

seems to be right, although I've installed the Q400 in a separate folder and used the addon.xml to enable it in the sim. (Quick test, suggests this method works for the Q400)

Anyway, the Q400 is installed in the following folder structure. Thanks for the reply :)
 

D:\Program files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D_x64_ADDONS\SimObjects\P3D Addon Manager\Majestic Software Dash 8 Q400 PRO EDITION
