    P3Dv4.2 and install path ?

    I know the new XML method (good method). But things begin to go south with some developers (Maddog and now according to one user on Avsim "Just Flight Traffic Global") who decided to automatically put, without the user having the choice, all the main program in C:\Users\Portier\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons. Hence my question Regards,

    P3Dv4.2 and install path ?

    Thanks for answering... Namely? For example currently I have the Aerosoft F-14 installed in : C:\Users\Portier\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\Aerosoft F-14 Extended (add-on.xml). Good! E:\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\Aerosoft\F-14 Extended with the main files Texture, Fonts, SimObjects and so on...Very good ! ...and in : E:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Ecosystem\Aerosoft\F-14A with documentation and so on...Good ! The problem is that for example the Maddog not to name it, found nothing better than to automatically install all the files in both : C:\Users\Portier\Documents\Maddog X Files (1.10GB)... ...and in: C:\Users\Portier\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\MaddogX (1.44GB) !!! Which many users have criticized including me. Please, can you confirm me that the main files ( Texture, Fonts, SimObjects and so on...) of the An-2 updated will not be on C: whatever folder (I want to have the choice)? Excepted of course some documentations or XML files if necessary... Thank you again and Regards,

    P3Dv4.2 and install path ?

    Hi, I want to buy this aircraft. I saw she's compatible P3Dv4.1. I guess she's compatible P3Dv4.2 ? Thank you to confirm. Thank you also to confirm that the aircraft can be installed elsewhere than in C:\Users\*********\Documents (important). Regards,

    Changing P3D path for installation

    My Prepar3D v4 Add-ons folder is on E: so, all the F-14 stuff is installed on E:\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\Aerosoft\F-14 Extended (all the F-14 files, SimObjects and so on). On C:\Users\*******\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\Aerosoft F-14 Extended...there is only an Add-on.xml file pointing to my E: big deal (2KB). Works well. I guess you made some mistakes during install... Regards,

    Cat launch help

    No Ezdock2 is not a requirement...I ask you this question because Ezdock2 in P3Dv4.1 causes some detrimental effects with some planes. In the F-14 it is necessary to remove an option from Ezdock to prevent the plane from jumping. It could have been your problem, but since you have neither P3D nor Ezdock 2, I do not see where your problem is, sorry. Regards,

    Sound problem with the Lightning T5 and P3Dv4.1

    Done but does not work...So, I made some other tests, the sound problem occurs with the Reheat (you was right) and the ASC_gear (sound65>>>sound69). The ASC_wind (sound60>>>sound64 are ok). I can take off now. Curious that I have this problem, I'm alone with that ? Is it possible there is some glitches in the Asc.dll ? Maybe it's not fully compatible with W7U64...Is it fixable ? I guess it's the same "game" with the F3 and F6 version (not installed for now) ? Thanks for your help again, Regards,

    Sound problem with the Lightning T5 and P3Dv4.1

    Thank you for your help Dave. So, I deactived Asc.cfg and Asc.dll, the aircraft is flyable but of course I have no more click sound in the cockpit...There is clearly a problem with the loop sounds played via Asc.dll. Concerning DirectX, checked 32b and 64b all is problem at all. Like I wrote in my previous posts, all my other aircrafts work perfectly with no sound problem including the new F-14 version from Aerosoft. Regards,

    Sound problem with the Lightning T5 and P3Dv4.1

    Hi Dave, Is it only when the Houchin (GPU ) is running ? No, I'll try to explain... I can ear the Gpu start file and the Gpu stop file correctly, however the Gpu loop file stuts and has the consequence of causing stutters and freeze in P3D (Fps + -2). I still managed to start the engines. After stopping the Gpu the program seems to be back to normal. I can taxiing, the buttons click sound in cockpit are correct. Now, during the acceleration phase to take off the sound returns to stutter / freeze again, P3D crashes everytime before being able to take off. I tried with the original ASC.DLL and of course with the new. The result is the same. Like I described above... Again my system is normally very stable (drivers up to date) whatever the aircrafts or/and sceneries. ASC.DLL file version Product version, 64.5kb from 27/06/2017 10:03 From the Event Viewer : Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x59d67e95 Faulting module name: XAudio2_7.dll, version: 9.29.1962.0, time stamp: 0x4c0643cc Exception code: 0x80000003 Fault offset: 0x000000000002b72c Faulting process id: 0x17a4 Faulting application start time: 0x01d3a15213cf49e5 Faulting application path: E:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Prepar3D.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\XAudio2_7.dll Report Id: 6a80ce20-0d46-11e8-bc3b-240a640748f4 I hope there is a solution to this problem, all the series of Lightning works very well in Fsx, I would like it to be the same in P3Dv4.1. Thanks and Regards,
  13. Hi, I installed the Lightning T5 in P3Dv4.1 + the new DLL's from the pinned WinZip file (P3Dv4 fuel.dll sound.dll and effects When I start the Gpu the sound is corrupted... It has the effect of causing stutter and freeze (1or 2fps)! Same problem during takeoff ... The result is either a definitive freeze or a Ctd. P3Dv4.1, W7U64 I will add that this is the only addon with which I have this problem. Many aircrafts I have in P3Dv4.1 (Fslabs, A2A, Pmdg, Milviz, TFDI, Aerosoft F-14 latest version, all work perfectly ...) Thank you and Regards,

    Key to open the F-14 Ai Menu ?

    Hi, Please, would it be possible to have a combination of key to open the F-14 Ai Menu? Example: Ctrl+F10 or better, have the possibility to choose my own combination (I don't know if it's possible...). This system already exists for GSX (Ctrl+F12) or Active Sky (Ctrl+F11) Thank you and Regards,
