  2. Hello Folks! I´m wondering if somebody has any tips on how to use the new Carbon Cub radio, gps, the "rpm panel sticker" :P, mixture control and specially (in my case) the proper use of the "carb. heat"! Do all of the knobs in the digital gps/radio work? Oh, and i know that there are lots of tutorials in the web, and even in the "avsim" forum. But i´m looking for specific details and tips on how to make the most out of the new Carbon Cub! ------------------------- Keep on flying!
  3. Hi folks! Do you guys think that MS will release the next USA DLC's state by state or by regions? I´m wondering that because if that is the case it would take about 12 years to release just the US... I personaly prefer small and well desined DLC maps, but i don´t know how they are going to keep it up, because in 12 years the first DLC would be really outdated in terms of design and graphics... Any ideas on that?
  4. Well, according to microsoft the f4u is the last warbird... So would that make Alaska next on the DLC list? It seems like with the warbirds in hawaii theme, they could do " bush flying in alaska" and release vc-enabled planed for a couple months =) seems the most likely. Does anyone know any more about all this?
  5. Hi All, Just wanted to share a few hours of pain with you I had when installing Alaska. Actually it wasn't too bad in the end thanks to some helpful internet folks, and I think the tips I've picked up proved very useful so I've started this topic so the faithful can refer to should future DLC's cause any concerns. Just wanted to say I've had no issues at all with installations in Flight up until the Alaska pack, maybe I was unlucky with this, there isn't too much in the forums so hopefully these events are pretty rare - but downloading large files always has the potential to cause issues. Microsoft Flight has detected a corrupted installation and will now exit :shok: Yeah, so some of you may have seen this, if you haven't you don't know what your missing! Of course this means the Flight install has been corrupted. This happened during the install of the Alaskan Wilderness Pack for me. After much tinkering I decided to remove Flight altogether, but that meant at the time downloading Flight again, the title update and all DLC... YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO THIS - so a few simple steps now could save you hours later on. How to fix a corrupted installation: :dance: Reinstall the main Flight package. Install the latest title update. Remove recently added DLC using the Games for Windows Client. Check Flight install (playing the game for 5 minutes usually is enough to verify if the install is ok). Download DLC again. If you still have issues it means one of the DLC components (there are 7 with Alaska) has been corrupted. In this case what I had to do was delete using the Games for Windows Client the latest DLC downloads and then install each one again but checking the Flight install each time. As it happens with me it seemed the Alaska Share Resources was corrupted so when downloading this again it fixed the Flight installation. Another thing which may have caused me issues was the initial download Alaska Wilderness Pack the first time round didn't install first, because when going back to Flight before this had finished it asked me to download the others files and one of them finished before the download for the Alaska Wilderness Pack. I can't say if that caused any issues but it probably wasn't a good thing. Preparing for a corruption Removing Flight base package Ok removing the base package does absolutely nothing with the DLC so it's completely safe. You profile is taken online so you lose none of your achievements. Perform the following to remove the Flight application - thanks Bill! (n4gix). Uninstall Microsoft Flight from the Add/Remove Programs screen Delete the following directories (if they exist). Navigate to them by pasting the paths given below in the address bar of Windows Explorer: %UserProfile%\My Documents\Flight %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Flight %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\XLive\DLC\4d5308d2 %AppData%\Microsoft\Flight Installing Flight base package To make the reinstall steps above easier to follow you can capture the main Flight download from the Games for Windows Downloads folder prior to clicking on the install. The other DLC packs install automatically but the main package needs a prompt. Copy something like the file shown below before picking install to another folder and unpack. The GfW Client Settings page will show you where your downloads are if you've forgotten. The archived download will look something like 97FBC10CAA35C555C40DEA648CE345228FAA543C_05E79A5A-59BF-472C-B563-1A4BBD1ACD35_1 For the title update do a search for the msi package however if you don't do this straight away when installing the title update, the file will eventually be deleted - as this is smaller though re-downloading is less of an issue... dir TitleUpdate.msi /s Copy parent folder for 'Content' containing the TitleUpdate banary to a safe location. i.e. as below this would be 4d5308d2. ..\4d5308d2\Content\TitleUpdate.ms After installation you will be prompted to redownload your online profile so make sure you are logged into Windows Live. That’s about it, you can now continue to redownload the DLC and hopefully a second time it will be ok... Still no luck with the install... :help: If the install still doesn't work. The Game for Windows Client writes out a log file at the following location - but also check the Windows Event Viewer as well. C:\Users\Ultimate\AppData\Local\Microsoft\GFWLive\Install\Logs Issues with updates can sometimes also occur when Flight has crashed or is still running. Make sure Flight is shutdown before reinstalling the main package, title updates and even DLC. I.e. use GfW client. If you still can't get any DLC working, then it may be another issue with your computer or even the DLC itself. If it gets this far then it can't be a bad idea to look online or post something within this topic and I'm sure the technical wizards on here will be happy to assist. Good luck and enjoy Alaska! :yahoo: Cheers, Dave.
  6. Now I'm an IT guy, not a coder (too sociable, no beard, and I have a wife :Big Grin: ) so i don't know what i am talking about, but Kevin MV Gibbage does, and I suspect some other lurkers here..Please note, Kevin; that bit about coders is a joke One of the things I like about flying is a sense of purpose. call me picky, but simply sightseeing is not always my cup of tea. Don't get me wrong..I love flying AK as it is so beautiful. I love wilderness, BUT I like to fly for a reason, and get the lovely vistas along the way. Reward-based gaming/flying, let's call it. It's why I play AH So, my point: I, and a few others were really looking forward to some location-specific missions in AK. SAR; relief missions; mining supply etc etc. This is now never going to happen. MS is also not, for the foreseeable future, going to relase the SDK. How easy, and how much access to the SDK would one need to create a mission? I'm guessing full access, but still asking the question..It would be great, for instance, if, as a gesture to the people who paid for FLIGHT and DLC, to allow say a member of the team to accept submissions for new DLC mission content? I dunno..I know FLIGHT is dead, and MS have left the room, but I can't help feeling that, somehow, there is some life left in FLIGHT in an ongoing sense, not just as abandonware... If a limited subset of the SDk was in place, perhaps even an online mission creator? I dunno..Probably loads more work for somebody who doesn't really feel the vibe... cue the "it's never gonna happen" posts Glass half full, me...
  7. need help asap. anybody know why i may not be able to download any planes. keep coming up with software plugins.
  8. There could be little chance of seeing airliners released this year for Flight, but this also raises another question, could this mean the end of flying aircraft for our favorite airlines? Could the DLC system be clamped down as to not let us repaint aircraft into our favorite liveries?Even if they do give us airliners, we might only see ones currently in production, so this could mean no classic airliners
  9. 27/06/2012 Alaska Expansion Pack was released. Maybe that's why we've been lumbered with a 3 day repeat AotD. :lol: Doesn't time fly when you're having fun. ATB Paul
