  1. Yep, confirmed! Thank you for pointing to the right thread masterhawk! I applied 1) of the link, and proceeded straight ahead to the install process. SODE was installed on my sims folder ( not under C:\Program Files (x86) ) and set the Mesh resolution in Prepar3d v3.4 to 1m. Beautiful follow-up to my old Madeira X, now in the smooth Prepar3d v3.4 :-)
  2. I just bought the scenery as an upgrade from my Madeira-X, which I used with FSX and then FSX:SE. Now in P3Dv3.4 latest version, using only ORBX FTX Global and the FSLabs A320, I am willing to install this upgrade tonight and see the results :-) Any special recommendations regarding minimum possible Mesh / Terrain detail sliders ( I have them low in order not to impact the FSLabs A320... ) ? Any problems noticed so far with this scenery when installed after ORBX FTX Global ? Does the installer correctly find the sim version installed ? Thx for any suggestions
  3. Madeira in P3D v2.5

    Thx Philz, unfortunately this fix ( from Simmershome.de ) is only valid for owners of ORBX Vector :-(
  4. Madeira in P3D v2.5

    I have nothing installed - plain vanilla p3dv2.5 - and when I run the Madeira installer, and choose the P3Dv2 option, the install runs but: In P3dv2.5, when I select Madeira ( LPMA ): 1) I sunk into sea level, and only slew can put me back on the tarmac / rw... 2) On approach, PAPI lights appear from some angles, but then simply disappear 3) When I run the uninstaller, this corrupts the scenery, and Madeira turns completely unusable :-( Question: Any fixes in the make ? How can I, at least properly uninstall Aerosoft Madeira from P3dv2.5...
  5. Ok guys, again thanks a lot for all you support! I'll report back after trying the ""run as Admin"... This worked for the Katana Load & config app which wasn't doing anything unless run as admin... And yes, I intend to get the 4X version :-) as well as the TO Extended ;-)
  6. Just a follow up... Flight1's fix didn't work - My Katana X still has opaque canopy when it's raining :-( I accepted the install of FSX Gold into the default C:\Programs(x86) folder, in windows 7. I wonder if this was one of my big mistakes (?). Have meanwhile seen recommendations of an install to something like C:\FSX instead to escape the effects of UAC ?
  7. Ok, again thank you Otto and Herman for your prompt and helpful replies :-) I also installed the Twin Otter X, and that one doesn't suffer from the same problem, but I am aware that an "Extended" version is also in the works :-)
  8. Ah, you mean that only the Katana 4x is compatible with AccPack? Thx for the "rainfix" ;-)
  9. It is off, but thx anyway fro the hint ;-) I did enable it (DX10 preview) yesterday. after installing FSX Golden, but then disabled it again, unless something got stuck in the CFG file (?). Where in the CFG files can I see the DX10 setting just to make sure it is off?
  10. I have just installed the DA-20 Katana X download version, on FSX Golden Edition (which includes Acceleration and is fully patched). The installer version is v2.00. When in the VC and raining, the canopy becomes opaque. I believe the update available at my account with SP2 is already included in the v2.00 installer (?) Is there a fix for this rather annoying bug? Thx in advance
  11. Installing CumulusX! in Prepar3D

    Thx for the info Peter.
  12. Discus to Prepar3D

    :-(
  13. Would like to know about successful installations of soaring add-ons, including CumulusX!, Aerosoft Discus X, etc, in LM Prepar3D. Thx in advance for any comments!
  14. Has anyone been able to make CumulusX! work with Prepar3D yet?
  15. Prepar3D

    Peter, I came here today exactly to post this same subject - just to find out that you already thought about it!!!! Please do include support for Prepar3D - that way I will certainly go for it. I uninstalled FSX and have been using mainly Condor, because FSX would run slow on my computer, I also because I didn't really want to invest my money on scenery and mesh for a platform that is stagnant... I couldn't afford Prepar3D either.... Now I can :-) I will refrain from buying it if I can't see any sound support for glider flying, like the one CumulusX! gave me in FSX, so, if you decide to support Prepar3D, I will go for it :-)
