  1. Hello, I'm Brazilian and I'm having difficulty installing SP2, because my FSX is translated into my native language, I need someone to make me back up the files in English. If anyone could help me, I would be grateful.
  2. Hello, i have tried F9 but it didnt work. My view can only see the top of the cockpit and not the thing to pull up/control i have to keep pressing A to see things but still cant find the pull up thing.
  3. One of the changes in V4 is that LM changed the simulators CFG files to Unicode to support universal character sets in the future. This will present problems to any program that modifies the sim cfg files. There is potential to destroy the formatting which will destroy such configuration files requiring a complete uninstall/flush/reinstall of P3Dv4. Any product that does the following could potentially destroy your configuration files. This includes things like: Add, edit or delete texture or autogen entries to TERRAIN.CFG Add, edit or delete scenery layers for you Edit simulator settings settings outside of the simulator (like traffic, graphics settings, etc) Products that do this will need to be updated before use, so be aware. We'll all be tempted to see if our favorite addon will work but just be aware that if does not have official word from the vendor that it is compatible with V4, you could run a risk of having to reinstall. So before any USER posts that xyz is compatible, please be sure that there are no hidden side effects. Vic

    TCAS problem

    Hello, I have a problem with the TCAS. Since a few days ago I alway see some "planes" around me on the TCAS. But there are none. They are either always around me in about 1 mile distance or they are jumping around on the ND. It's really annoying especially on short final.

    No buttons working after long pause. | PMDG 777

    So i was getting ready to fly from ESSA- Arlanda to OMDB-DUBAI. I had school the day later, so i enabled the "pause at TOD." I was about half the way when i went to sleep. The next morning i was cheking if everything was doing ok, i then started planning my decent and i noticed that the buttons wassn't working. The sim had been on pause for a long time, i don't know if that can have something to do with it. Cheers Vetle. :)
  6. Hi everyone, I'm quite new to the forums, therefore I would like to apologize in advanced if this subject is posted in the wrong thread. I'm in a bit of a bind here. My dad's credit card that I use for online purchases has been blocked because someone had created a Simmarket account using my email to purchase an addon. Luckily it was only one item. However, this is still a very serious matter as the perpetrator may purchase more things under my email in the future. Do any of you guys know of any way to contact the Simmarket team via email or forums? I want to resolve this issue as fast as I can. Thanks.
  7. NOTE: The following is likely of interest only to add-on developers, freeware or payware. As many (most) of us now know, P3D v3 has set up an system of configuration files where they encourage us to place our add-on products. Moreover, they have even provided command line parameters we can use to automatically add our new paths to these various configuration files! Sweet! Unfortunately, the SDK documentation is just as opaque as any such has ever been... Since I had to do this anyway, I've put together a simple batch (.bat) file that will do all the work for you. All anyone needs to do is edit this file to update the drive letter, path, title, etc. to suit their own needs. This batch file will first make backup copies of these config files: simobjects.cfg effects.cfg fonts.cfg gauges.cfg sound.cfg I suggest that this should probably be removed from the .bat file before using it in your installers. I only used them while I was testing just to verify that I had all of the parameters correct! All new entries are made at the TOP of the existing config files, so whatever is in those new folders will be seen "first" before P3D v3 looks at its default folders. Here then is my batch file: echo :: Make backup copies of P3Dv3's .cfg files CD \ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 Copy simobjects.cfg simobjects_back.cfg Copy effects.cfg effects_back.cfg Copy fonts.cfg fonts_back.cfg Copy gauges.cfg gauges_back.cfg Copy sound.cfg sound_back.cfg :: Add new path to simobjects.cfg file CD \Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 Prepar3D.exe "-Configure: File=SimObjects, Operation=Add, Path=D:\MilvizProducts\SimObjects\Airplanes, Title=Milviz Airplanes, Required=True, Active=True" :: Add new path to effects.cfg file CD \Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 Prepar3D.exe "-Configure: File=Effects, Operation=Add, Path=D:\MilvizProducts\Effects, Title=Milviz Effects, Required=True, Active=True" :: Add new path to fonts.cfg file CD \Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 Prepar3D.exe "-Configure: File=Fonts, Operation=Add, Path=D:\MilvizProducts\Fonts, Title=Milviz Fonts, Required=True, Active=True" :: Add new path to gauges.cfg file CD \Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 Prepar3D.exe "-Configure: File=Gauges, Operation=Add, Path=D:\MilvizProducts\Gauges, Title=Milviz Gauges, Required=True, Active=True" :: Add new path to sound.cfg file CD \Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 Prepar3D.exe "-Configure: File=Sound, Operation=Add, Path=D:\MilvizProducts\Sound, Title=Milviz Sound, Required=True, Active=True" pause

    Installing add ons in V4

    Now a few hours into the V4 development stream. I have to say, that the method of installing addon packages into the Documents folder and P3D looking them up automatically is really awesome! No need to fiddle with any of the config files or to copy content into central folders. Unless of course that is the point of your addon, like automated gauge installers, addons altering the aircraft.cfg etc. Those should take care to check the encoding. btw. an addon package allows for absolute paths too, so a scenery or aircraft developer could let the user choose the installation path at will while still retaining the add-on.xml file in the proper place. Prepar3D will then discover the addon automatically (it will be interesting to see how this will affect load times, if you really have A LOT of addons in there). Any user can create such an add-on.xml himself too, thus avoiding to screw up the scenery.cfg. I think that this calls for a new type of scenery addon manager app... <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>MySceneries</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>My sceneries that are already installed.</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>G:\OldSceneries\MyOldScenery01</Path> <Name>Scenery01</Name> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>G:\OldSceneries\MyOldScenery02</Path> <Name>Scenery02</Name> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> -> SDK -> Add-ons -> Add-on Packages Best regards
