    How to install this v3.00?

    Thank you for the reply! Best regards.

    How to install this v3.00?

    I'll try to explain better the situation: the last installer uses the external add-ons folder also for P3D V3, so not only it puts the add-on.xml inside Prepar3D v4 Add-ons but also put the simobjects in a folder not visible by TacPack for P3D V3. I've did some testing and found that: -loadout manager doesn't work. -carrier is missing from TPM -Animations (throttles, wing sweep, ...) aren't working. -Standby AI has not been fixed. Don't know if performance issues (probably caused by the excessive texture resolution and some VC gauges, mostly VDI/TV) had been fixed, it was impossible to fly the plane (uncontrollable), so I didn't had the chance to see the empty texture squares that appear only with the F-14X. Best regards. Enrico

    How to install this v3.00?

    I can confirm that P3D V3 installer put the files in the wrong places, it's not a good thing since if you move the files where they should be than you cannot do a clean unistall. I've reinstalled previous version, until V3.0 installer has been fixed. For the fonts problem: no need to reinstall P3D, simply open windows registry, search and delete fonts\F-14X_LANTIRN entries, than restart windows and you can delete the font file.

    P3D V3.4.22 Ground Roll Braking: no spoilers

    It was the first thing I've did, the Saitek x52pro has the same configuration used for FSX, but you made me wonder if I did it right... Following the run-up checklist I've noticed that throttles didn't return to idle, so I've increased the throttle axis sensitivity until "[ ]throttles - idle" become checked and spoilers finally deployed, I've had to set a value of 111 (deadzone 1). Thank you so much! Time to buzz some towers... Best regards. Enrico

    P3D V3.4.22 Ground Roll Braking: no spoilers

    Still can't find out why they aren't working, could it be an incompatibility between Visual C++ 2013 used by P3D v3 and the C++ 2008 required by the F-14X?

    P3D V3.4.22 Ground Roll Braking: no spoilers

    Forget the OT, I was using the wrong affinity mask...
  7. I've moved to P3D, everything works great except for the of spoilers with ground roll braking switch active (both anti skid+spoilers, spoilers). With WoW and thrust idle (0%) I click on the anti skid switch, immediatly the spoilers are deployed, then retracted when throttle input is applied, after this cycle the spoilers won't deploy anymore. Simconnect was reinstalled, no changes... What should I try for debug this behaviour? Little O.T.: external texture loading is slower than in FSX, it takes almost six seconds. Best regards. Enrico

    How to repaint F-14X?

    Yes, it works! I've used DXTBmp and PSP9 for resize "common" and "texture.VF-114.1977" textures at 1024x1024 max. External view loaded istantaneously, before it took 2~3 seconds to load the 16MB textures, the overall quality was enough for screenshots. VC textures were a mess as the labels were unreadable, so I kept the original ones. The VAS decreased 200MB circa, enought for long flights... I hope!

    How to repaint F-14X?

    Thanks for the link, I will try in that way! If the method above doesn't work: I did a search with "fsx resize textures dds dxtbmp alpha" and found some instructions on how to resize using Photoshop and Nvidia DDS Plugin... Things are getting "complicated"! Cheers.

    How to repaint F-14X?

    Can you share me the links? With the F-14X I have a high VAS usage (400MB free when aproaching the CV), so I would try to reduce textures size and see what happens. Thanks.

    Issues while flying

    1°For bring up the ILS needles you have to select AWL/PCD in the STEER CMD, then NAV1 = Carrier TACAN, NAV2 = Carrier ILS. The F-14 does not have STBY NAV (Aircraft.cfg => Nav.1 = 1, 0, 1 // Radio Type = availiable, standby frequency, has glide slope). For field landings NAV1 = ILS. 2°Strange... If you lower the hook the NWS light stays on? 3°During flight flap handle must in retracted position, if during maneuver AoA is excessive or speed is too low the flap/slat will extend. (F14AAD-1 "CADC" Maneuver Flap and Slat Mode) 3°Press backspace, than you shoul be enable to zoom with the "+" "-" keys, or use "spacebar"+"mouse wheel", than see FSX/P3D settings-controls-buttons-view for the POV movement key combination.

    Real World Tomcat stories

    Interesting reading... Those skilled pilots have all my respect! That was exactly the (bad) situation I've tried to simulate several times... But keeping the cat on the slope with the "stick rudder" and the short-travel throttle of the x52pro is really complicated!

    Another sunset... Maybe with more realistic colors? (REX sometimes goes crazy) Happy Holidays!!!
