Giorgio.... Hi there. You must be new to ProPilot -- welcome.If you can't find the files here at Avsim, you won't find them anywhere. It's possible you might be able to work out a deal with someone who has them and can burn them onto a CD for you or possibly put them on a website from where you can download them. Re the video card. A GEForce driver won't benefit PP99. The 3D effects can only be seen (and appreciated) if you have a card that uses the Glide API. Any of the Voodoo cards, standalone or addon, will work. The problem will be finding one.Good luck.-Lindy :-wave

Hi Lindy,Thank you for your reply.Really this is the first time I write in PP99 forum. I am a FlyII and FS2002 aircraft developper but I have PP99 from the first release.I noted this is a very nice sim in flight model, but I don't like the displaying with my geforce based video card because I can see it all as cubes!!.A little request to you, if you can:can you send me some pics to see the right visualization vith vodooo video card? If you can over Paris and other seaside cities.Thank you a lot.A very dear regardGiorgio Gnesda

Giorgio -- I would love to help you out with some screenshots, but I no longer have PP99 installed on my computer.So to anyone who still has PP99 on their machine, could you help Giorgio and post a few of his reqested screenshots showing off the 3D effects with your Glide API card? -Lindy :-wave

ANY card that uses the Glide API, and that includes the entire Voodoo line, should work fine. I myself used a VooDoo II addon card that connected to my TNT nVidia card.I'm not sure, but I believe any Voodoo card higher than 2 is a stand alone card meaning it does not need to be connected to a main video card. I suppose you can have two main video cards in a computer and switch between them; I'm not sure about that though.-Lindy :-wave

I use the Voodoo 5 as my only video card. It works well with FS2002 and REALLY WELL with ProPilot 99!Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

Giorgio,You need to download all your email. You cannot receive any more until you do that. You can find Voodoo 2 add-on cards, Voodoo 3, and Voodoo 5 stand-alone video cards online at www.pricewatch.com by clicking on Video Cards in the Multimedia section of the main menu near the upper right side of the Pricewatch home page. You can also just SEARCH the video section for the word VOODOO and find all the versions of the Voodoo family still available in surplus stores, etc.If you get the Voodoo 2 card, you can keep your GeForce card and just loop the video from the GeForce card through the new Voodoo 2 card. It will only activate when a GLIDE video program is running.The Voodoo 3 and Voodoo 5 cards are designed to run alone as the only video card. The Voodoo 5 has more memory and features of course.Since Windows 98, it has been possible to have TWO "stand-alone" video cards in computer, but I opted for the Voodoo 5 as my only video card. When I first got ProPilot 99, my video card was the Voodoo Banshee model, which had limited features, but ran the GLIDE video nicely.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

I know you are probably not seeing the clouds and video effects yet, but did you get to see the mountains of Europe? Check out Gibraltar!Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

Giorgio,Check out this link to one of our forum member's web sites. He has some pix posted you may enjoy NOW!http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Run...1/pro_shots.htm There is also a link to another web site with more pictures on it. Andre did a good job on his exploration of ProPilot 99 as you will see. The pop-up ads are a nuisance, but you can turn them off and see what you want to see with a little patience.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

I think I'll save my $0.02 for when Giorgio gets it up and running.Hopefully Chris E (cornclose) has saved all of our comments -- c'mon, Chris ! Get that machine goin' ! However, I'll list what I recall being the other things to know :1 - Patch 1.03 (which I think the European patch includes).2 - Instructions on how to get ATC to get you to the field in less than 2 trips around the field.3 - Peter's WX Web Site.4 - Voodoo2 Drivers NOT to use (2.54 was the bad one ?).5 - Keyboard commands for taking pictures, getting frame rate displayed.6 - Joystick/Yoke-Pedal recommendations.What am I forgetting ?Dave H.Fayetteville, GA

You are right on the 1.03 patch being in the Euro Patch. That Voodoo 2 patch only applies if he gets one of those OLD cards instead of the Voodoo 5 card.I was trying to take some pix with no success, so I gave him the links you saw above to Fred's site, and from there he can link to Andre's site.Peter's weather site is something I never used. Nice touch about how to get ATC to "work" for us. Of course the guys who programmed the ATC expected us to do the right approaches to an airport pattern as published in FAR/AIM manuals, etc.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

Jerry,The way you and the others respond to queries from new comers is quite amazing. No wonder this forum has such a reputation for helpfulness. I don't know if I ever told you that I once bought X-plane. I went to their forum and asked some fairly innocuous question (s) and got a surly response from one of their "guru's" who basically said that I was wasting his time. I was so put off by his remark that I removed the sim from my HD the next day for good.That would never happen here.All the best,Meekal

Thank you my friends for informations and kindness!I saw the pics about PP99 and I think it is very interesting. Now I can see it like a cubes world!! But I think to buy a Vodoo5 card and install it in a old computer I have (PII350 128Mbram).I must say you, when I use the Citation 525, is as to pilot a real Jet. Very nice flight model.I read a lot of not good comments about this sim, but I think different. I have a lot of simulators but PP99 is the only sim that give me the sensation of the weight of the plane, very nice.I have PP99 from 3 years but after its buying I close it out from my computer for its bad graphics. One week ago I loaded it in my computer to try an old sim and I discovered a fantastic flight model (but the same bad graphic....I have a GeForce cased video card!)I am a FlyII aircraft developper and if you like you can see some about my planes here:http://avsim.com/hangar/fly/josve/fly2/jet/citation/citation.htmlhttp://avsim.com/hangar/fly/josve/fly2/jet/md/md.htmlhttp://avsim.com/hangar/fly/josve/fly2/jet...500/737500.htmlReally I'd like to do something to change the bad graphic of PP99 planes....and I think I have found the way to do it!!! :-)I cannot promise you anything but I'll try ok!!A lot of thanks again my friends for your attentions, kindness and helps to let me understand more thing about this ununderstand sim.Many regards from ItalyGiorgio Gnesda

Meekal,Thanks for those kind words. As you can see, Giorgio is motivated now to get a Voodoo 5 and see ProPilot 99 the way it was intended to be used. I am glad he has discovered the improved flight models from the Euro Patch.No matter what our native language may be, it is good to see that we all meet here to exchange our feelings about this flight sim with others, everywhere!Giorgio,Please advise us when you get that Voodoo 5 card up and running. I know when I got mine to replace my older Banshee Voodoo card, I had to do some modifications to my computer case to fit in the LARGER Voodoo 5 card. The extra ram and dual video processors on the Voodoo 5 made it worth the extra work to fit it into my computer case. I had to abandon my older case for a tall tower case to even get started. Even then, I had to cut out some metal frame area that was intended to hold extra hard drives in order to get clearance for the Voodoo 5 video card in my AGP slot of my Tyan S1590S mother board. By the way, the processor in that computer is a 450 MHz AMD K6-III processor. The frame rates are great with ProPilot 99 in 3D mode. Like you said, the "FEEL" of the airplanes is what keeps all of us here flying the sim when we are not building or flying real airplanes.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.Licensed private pilot SEL

You may have the NON-USA version of ProPilot. IF that is the case, you may need a new FLIGHT.EXE file from one of us before you can patch your program. Did you look at Gibraltar to see if it is FLAT or if it really has a big ROCK there in 3D elevation contours? IF you see the area as FLAT, then we need to get you a different FLIGHT.EXE that will accept the EuroPatch and the rest of the improved scenery. I can send you that file as an email attachment.Look in your SierraProPilotFlight directory and see if the FLIGHT.EXE file has 1,729,024 bytes and a date of 2-24-99. That is the file on my machine after the EuroPatch has been run on it. Somewhere in this house is my original Purple BOX and CD-ROM. I may have to find it just to get that old US file for you.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.
