    Vertigo Studios - All product on Sale?

    I've just flown the Vans and Stearman in P3Dv4 and they do work OK, unchanged from the DVD install. The Stearman has no cockpit sounds anyway (just that big engine, and the whistle of wind in the wires 🙂 ) The Vans uses a DeadPixl custom gauge for cockpit sound, this is 32-bit and doesn't work. If you want cockpit sounds, then the Virtavia Islander also uses that gauge and there is a fix here https://www.simforums.com/forums/islander-in-p3dv4_topic60395.html that may also work for the RV-7. If you are installing into Windows 10, then some older DVDs used copy protection that isn't supported by W10. Hopefully this isn't the case for the SBD etc, but if it is then I think the only option is to install to Windows 7 and copy the files. Cheers Keith

    Vertigo Studios - All product on Sale?

    I think they just worked...no 'cockpit sounds' perhaps...but can you really hear switch clicks in an open cockpit with that big radial up front? Certainly couldn't in the Tiger Moth I flew once 🙂 Biggest problem for 64-bit P3D is FS2004 objects and macros in the model - that's a no-no, the sim often crashes. Then 32bit code in instruments, which is usually minor - something just doesn't work properly. Bit like real-life... For aircraft using the common freeware sound guauge there is now a 64-bit replacement. Cheers Keith

    Get the SBD (including 3 other warbirds) at Flightstore.co.uk here for £2, plus postage (FSX DVD), also the Vans and Stearman for £2 🙂 Don't have the SBD but I have the Vans and Stearman both working ok in P3D (not sure if I tried them in P3Dv4 but should be OK) Cheers Keith

    alabeo Sale???

    There were Alabeo models on sale this winter - I bought the Cessna 207 50% off from the Carenado website, and they had the Cessna 177 50% off also. But only for the first day or so. I only look for Xplane 11 models, there may well have been others. Cheers Keith

    Just Flight weekend sale

    Only the HS748 and Hunter (both P3Dv4 ready) are specifically in the weekend sale, the others have been discounted for a while so should be available a while longer 🙂 Cheers Keith

    Justflight -33% incl. Arrows

    For me Xplane items are xplicitly xcluded :( Cheers Keith
  7. Sorry to be a downer, but sadly not the latest products, same sale as everywhere else :( Also, due to the magic of exchanges rates their prices are a lot higher for UK buyers than the US suppliers :( :( Cheers Keith

    Carenado Sale at FSS

    For any X-planers, my understanding is that Carenado will be redoing all of their XP-10 models for full XP-11 compatibility as new models with no discount to XP-10 purchasers. Only the 500S and PA34V will get free updates. They made a facebook post about it Most of the XP10 models mostly work...but perhaps best to save the budget for the updated versions... Cheers Keith

    THANKSGIVING DEALS

    It's just a 64-bit conversion...but what I meant was that DD wouldn't have bothered updating V1 of NYC to be P3Dv4 compatible as v2 was already out when P3Dv4 came out. Cheers Keith

    Best helicopter for p3d

    On sale at Simmarket too for the next couple of days :) But too small for me...not a money earner in FSEconomy - will stick to the Xplane Bell 412 Cheers Keith

    THANKSGIVING DEALS

    I think if it's P3Dv4 compatible it must be V2? The video claims to be of V1, but the same video is at PCAviator and they say NYC is V2. I went for the Xplane version, which I now discover is based on V1... oh well ... Cheers Keith

    THANKSGIVING DEALS

    For the Drzewiecki Design airports what is the framerate impact? I have the New York City and Airport demos and have disabled both because of big pauses as they come into sight :( Presumably the full product must be worse? Tempted by the Miami City with 'lite' airports instead - hoping the lite airports will be a more consistent load... Thanks Keith

    Flight Replica DC-4 released

    Alan, Do you find the engines work properly on the JF DC-6 in V4? As I remember there is a 32-bit WEP gauge (War Emergency Power) in the panel which I think is used for the superchargers ... and that won't work... It flies OK in V4 but is a little slow/thirsty which hurts the pocket in FSEconomy :) ) Cheers Keith
  14. There are free demos for both :) Cheers Keith
