squawkbox 3.2 challenges

Recommended Posts

As somebody who has generally gone over to the dark side, I have only recently reinstalled fly2 for occassional flights.I wanted to have a minimal fly2 setup.I think the environment from Infometar combined with Skyfire20 is a great easy setup.I saw Sqwarkbox32 was released so I thought I would try - CTD immediately :-)OK after approx an extra 220MB of mainly ROTW aircraft I think I have it.For those who are interested..sb 3.2 install log:On installing sb32 directly to fly2 folder, CTD SO...FILE NEEDS EXTRA CTDInstall_SquawkBox32 NO YES " YES! (see below) NONB: A: Ive tried to pick up problems encountered to be solved one plane at a time. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////// If you install in a differnt order to me you may find some needed files are missing.B: I'm not sure if this is neceassay but most changes seem to need it.So just in case -open the fly.ini file which is in your fly IIsystem folder, make sure there's a line in the ini file which reads: SEARCHPODFILESFIRST=0C: Dynamic parts Different aircraft have different versions of DYNAMICPARTS_V20.dll in ...modulespc folder DYNPARTS.TXT in ...modulespc folder _V20 came with the SenecaV _v10 (earlier) came with the P51Although I assume you should use the latest from the SenecaV, I don't really know. Probably best to check with ROTW (Rest Of the World) website - if you haven't checked out this site you must! Most of the addon aircraft and updated SB>3 have been done by this fantastic collection of pilots, programmers, painters, etc.1: Unzip 3.2 to temp folder 1.1: Read AI aircraft needed in temphowtoSquawkBoxAI library listing2: 215 MB EXTRA downloads now required - see aircraft list above3: Installing aircraftAIRCRAFT DLL NEEDS CTD EXTRA -------------------------------------------------------------------B707d.zipb727a_fly2.zipb737v20.ZIPairfrance737500.zipeasyjet737-500.zipB1900d.zip YES " YES ac_default_fix2.zip NO fixes but dll size added is large 2 237kb EA -AC_default_autothrottle.dll -AC_default_autothrottle.dll 1 YES(2) even though tony cervone says ac_defaultFix.POD is not needed Fly! won't start without it.
