  1. F=14 Extended in Prepar3D v4

    Same for me. Haven't even fired up FSX in last month even though still installed primarily for F-14.
  2. F-14 & fsuipc

    Your welcome! Bucks
  3. F-14 & fsuipc

    Trying to help Lipy, but he uses HOTAS Warthog and TARGET software and I do not. Does anyone here use those, and can you also assign buttons in FSUIPC using the Aerosoft_F14AB.lua at the same time TARGET is running? Apparently the TARGET software doesn't provide for assignment of a lot of commands that can be accessed through the .lua file. EDIT: from what I read, I assume you can use TARGET or program everything in FSUIPC but not both? If that's true does anyone have a good FSUIPC4.ini with F14X specific profile for HOTAS WH? Thanks, Bucks
  4. F-14 & fsuipc

    Not sure I understand the question entirely. But here are a few points: 1. All the needed FSUIPC files should be in the FSX/Modules folder 2. The two most important files for the F-14X would be the FSUIPC4.ini file for all the configuration settings and the Aerosoft_F14AB.lua file that has a lot of F-14X specific commands you can reference and use. 3. "Profiles", when talking FSUIPC, usually refer to "Aircraft Specific Profiles" that is a capability of FSUIPC and can be created in the FSUIPC dialogs in the FSX Add-on menu, or by editing the FSUIPC4.ini file using a text editor. I've used FSUIPC4 extensively and have set up my own aircraft specific profiles for the F-14X and other airplanes I fly regularly in FSX. I'd be happy to help. Pm me if you want more help than a quick question in the forum. Thanks, Bucks
  5. F-14 Extended (v2.01) Uploaded

    You've been a busy lad! Thanks so much for a great product. Bucks
  6. Limiting fps

    type "MS Flight Simulator X" in NI dropdown for fsx profile. It should show up after "MS..." But I don't use the limiter in NI (or anywhere for that matter), so someone else will have to comment on that Bruce
  7. Happy to share what little I can. Going to set up and cal the rudders tonight and after I get a few hours inflight I'll post results here.
  8. Cat will not roll after takeoff

    Thought I could help. I was wrong. I'm pretty good with FSX legacy and FSUIPC but I don't do SE. Have it but not installed yet since it doesn't play nice with some add ons I'm attached to. Hope Wingmate's help works.
  9. Thanks John, Tried the B model with autorudder disabled, about the same roll characteristics on speed short final, very sensitive. I know the real jet can kinda "wallow" a bit but I don't remember it being this sensitive. I also tried roll stab off just for grins. In any event I just broke down and bought rudder pedals. Most of my FSX flying has been for IFR procedure proficiency but with the F-14 and other things I'm doing now, I need the rudders. I'd love to look at the cockpit mods. Thanks, Bruce
  10. Cat will not roll after takeoff

    Rolls fine for me. Can you provide details on how your control axes are mapped? Especially Aileron. Are you using FSUIPC? Paid or free? FSX or P3D? I can help with axis mapping & cal if needed.
  11. Been really loving flying this airplane. I've been getting reacquainted with the F-14 and calibrating controls while doing some VFR work and cross counties on the PilotEdge network. Everything seems to work like the real jet (according to distant memories and NATOPS) or at least as advertised in any limitations. AP modes all work as advertised. I'm flying legacy FSX with Acceleration. (Gear always indicate unsafe when UP but I mentioned that in another post.) I am having a little lateral control issues on speed in the landing configuration. Unfortunately, I do not have rudder pedals so I'm using FSX Autorudder. Has anyone found the "best" FSUIPC Aileron calibration settings to compensate for no rudder controls? Here is an excerpt from my FSUIPC.ini for reference. Aileron cal at bottom, slope - 3.

  12. HUD Display disappears in clouds

    BTW, for anyone using legacy FSX and ASN, setting the "In cloud visibility reduction" to OFF solves this issue. The ASN default is ON for FSX and OFF for P3D. In a one flight test, I didn't notice any degradation of the in cloud experience by turning this OFF, and the HUD stayed visible. --Bruce
  13. HUD Display disappears in clouds

    Thanks for the explanation John. Been travelling a while. Flew it again last night and love it. I do fly it in the SOCAL region IFR and am going to start flying it on PilotEdge so the HUD obscuration is an issue but knowing the problem I can work around it. I use ASN for wx. Great product. Bruce
  14. LOVE this add on! I'm a former F-14A pilot and this has been a real trip. I haven't done exhaustive testing, but I do notice that the HUS display (flying the B with the Sparrow Hawk HUD) disappears in the clouds (IMC). Is there a fix for this? Thanks, Bruce
