  1. Well, first day buy for me, and I really welcome the idea of developing this sort of simulation platforms - reduced in scenery scope, but full of interesting details !

    What scenery for Lisbon - P3Dv4 ?

    Indeed Pedro, and the smoothness and quality of the MadeiraXEvo I bought yesterday, after 10 years ago having bought MadeiraX ( wow, time elapses so fast... ) makes me think how nice it would be to have LPPT in the smooth and stable P3Dv4 we now have ..
  3. The question in the subject. I see Lisbon is for FSX and previous P3D versions. Wonder if it's compatible with P3Dv4, or if a future update is due. Thank you

    Is MAdeira X Madeira X Evolution ?

    Yes, I'm doing that. Thx

    Is MAdeira X Madeira X Evolution ?

    Ok, thx for the info masterhawk! unfortunately the license for Madeira X doesn't provide a discount :-/
  6. I have Madeira X, bought in 2008 for FSX, and tried to use it's license in the cupon field while trying to buy Madeira X Evolution for use with P3Dv4.2, but got no discount ? In my account I see Madeira X version 1.20 available for download. Is this the same of the Evolution tittle ? Thx for any hints
  7. 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 :-)
  8. 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
  9. 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 ;-)
  10. 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 ?
  11. 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 :-)
  12. Ah, you mean that only the Katana 4x is compatible with AccPack? Thx for the "rainfix" ;-)
  13. 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?
  14. 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
