  1. Hello @ll, "Where are my Aircraft?" (or WAMA) version 1.09 has been released today. The two main new features are: - the "Time Machine" accelerates the simulation rate between the waypoints of your flight plan, slowing down automatically for each turn (so the autopilot can make it) - screenshots made while the WAMA logbook was active are added to the database and can be admired in a HTML based "scrapbook" report after your flight. It has already been deployed on SimMarket. JustFlight and FsPilotShop will follow as soon as they have processed it. Best regards
  2. Hello @ll, P4AO has been updated to 1.28 b03. 1. This version will now show the entries of "dll.xml" and "exe.xml" on the "other addons" tab too. Be mindful that, generally speaking, there should not be a DLL.XML or EXE.XML in "\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D V3/4\". Those files have been moved to "C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D V3/4" a long time ago. 2. Starting with this version, the uninstaller will remove the local property files, to avoid P4AO getting stuck and not starting any more. Once you have installed 1.28 b03, if P4AO refuses to open, just uninstall then reinstall. Best regards

You can restore previous versions operating mode in enabling the added 'Gauge Options | Advanced | Use Simulator AI Traffic Count" option.

  16. [16 JANUARY 2018] A software update for FS2Crew: PMDG 747-400 QOTS II is now available! This is a large update that includes new voices, bug fixes and many new features based on user requests and feedback. It is a free update. The update is built into the main installer only. There is no stand-alone update installer. You do not need to uninstall the current version. To obtain the update, please login to your FS2Crew account (it's on the top of the screen) and click "COMPLETED ORDERS", then re-download and re-install the package again. Important: Some of the procedures have changed, especially during the Gate Arrival phase. Please use the latest version of the Tutorials. Change Log: Version 1.1.

Captain's Turbulence PA now available. Gate arrival procedures enhanced. Please see the tutorials for updated procedures. FS2Crew will only attempt to connect the ground equipment after you announce "Shutdown Procedure". This allows you to set the parking brake during taxi without triggering the ground equipment to be connected. New Config Option to allow the FO to turn on both generators in the Freighter, not just one. You can now talk to the ground crew by holding down the R/T INT switch. Hold it in the INT position. Fixed / Updated: Manuals updated. Some available voice commands were not listed. FO now properly calls "Plus 100" not "Approaching Minimums" based on associated Config Option.

Touch and Go's fixed with respect to the Landing Checklist. Captain's no longer plays when you run the Pre-Flight events in Button Control. FO should now properly set the Baro scale (IN/MB) when in the US or Canada during his preflight flow. Missing sound file in the Secure Checklist (Emergency Exit Lights). FO will not announce passing the Transition Level during the descent if the altimeters are already set to QNH. Strobes On/Off voice command fixed. Match Speed / Bug Up/ Bug 1 - 5 - 10 - 20 - 25 -30 fixed. Setting the comm radios via voice control improved.

FO should now properly acknowledge engine start commands. Config Manager panel.cfg handling updated to handle a rare situation where Vox ATC was on the panel.cfg file, resulting in Window numbers being put out of alignment. "Passing Altitude" math improved to generate more accurate values taking your rate of climb/descent into account. FO will not turn on the strobe lights when crossing runways (Voice command: "Confirm Clear to Cross/Enter Runway XXX" must be used). "Set and Checked" now works as a possible response for the Before Takeoff "Flaps" challenge. FO now responds to FMA callouts while in Descent Mode. If final sector, packs off deferred to the shutdown procedure. "Set Heading 000" fixed. Ground crew volume amplified. Dome light handling improved for 2nd legs. Twitter / Facebook integration now working again (Social Integration tab on the Config Manager).
  17. Hello @ll, after discovering the next violation of the XML spec by a well-known product, I have decided to add an XML sanitizer process to the P4AO. This process will take a look at all the XML files that are supposed to represent addons, and it will correct all XML tags that are not as required by the specification. This is done to the best of its abilities, and there are still options to screw an add-on.xml up. I can only urge everyone not to handle these files like simple textfiles, be it manually or programmatically. Use proper XML serializers, obey the encoding rules and make absolutely sure that your tag names are as they should be according to the P3D Learning Center. And take note of the W3C spec what an XML file actually is. The new P4AO / Addon Organizer version is available for donwload on the Lorby-SI website, section "DOWNLOADS". Important: I can only test this tool with the addons that I have. So be careful when using it, especially now with the "sanitizer". Best regards

  22. Hello @ll, Fire Fighter X version 1.83 has been released today. Please allow for up to 48 hours until it is deployed to your account in the shop where you bought it (SimMarket has already confirmed the update). Uninstalling the old version is not necessary, but it doesn't hurt either. Starting with this version, FFX will no longer just drop retardant when you press the trigger! You have to arm the drop system first! To do that, just click on the green LED on the top left of the drop control dialog, or use the appropriate button on the gauges. The same is true when you want to scoop water with a skimmer aircraft or helicopter bucket. You have to arm the scooping system first (green LED on the right or buttons on the gauges) Please refer to the FFX user manuals for details!! Other than that, FFX now gives you more control over AI aircraft from inside the simulator itself (menus are accessible with Shift&F9, Shift&F10). Furthermore you can trigger siren signals with Shift&F11 (drop imminent) or Shift&F12 (drop complete). Siren signals are propagated over the network too. At the end of the users manual you will find a table listing all the simulator variables and events that FFX uses, in case you want to assign Joystick buttons or create your own gauges. Best regards
