  1. "Set for solo flight" == The bar's open in the Mess. Dave
  2. Glad it's sorted. What did you add? Dave
  3. If we're referring to the Aerosoft F-16, then each addon livery goes into the same folder as its associated model (there are many, so check carefully). Dave
  4. Can I ask which version of the F-14 you are running? You should have version - which you can check by running the Updater (available elsewhere in this forum) or by looking in your downloads section. Dave
  5. I think that P3Dv5 will pick up in popularity once the niggles are ironed out and when/if VRS produce a TavPack version for it. Dave
  6. Want me to have a look at it? Dave
  7. Hi Dave, Yes, I can see your problem. I must confess that I've removed FSX now, and am solely on P3D (v4.5 and 5.1) these days. Have you tried this one? <img>https://i.postimg.cc/x8HJXfst/2020-11-29_16-59-25-370.jpg</img> Dave
  8. Thanks for that. The Aerosoft F-14 installs as an external package, so I'm wondering if there might be a pointer there. That's a group of three and it has cockpit sounds. It works in P5D, too. Dave
  9. Hi there, I'm glad that it works for you, but I can't get it to do anything. I 'borrowed' the code from another package -- which does work. Virtual head-shaking here..... Dave
  10. Hi there, Yes. Firstly you create a top-level folder in P3Dv4 addons fiolder. Call it "Aerosoft Lightnings". Under that you create a 'SimObjects\Airplanes' folder, an 'Effects' folder, and a 'Sounds' folder. You also need the addon xml file: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>Aerosoft Lightnings</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>Add-ons by Aerosoft</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>SimObjects\Airplanes</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Sound</Category> <Path>Sound</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>Effects</Path> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> Put all the Lightnings into the 'SimObjects\Airplanes folder. Effects and effect textures into 'Effects', and sounds into 'Sound'. To declare the aircraft to your sim, make changes to the 'add-ons.cfg' in the relevant sim in %programdata%\Lockheed Martin. Dave
  11. Hey there, I still can't figure out why it won't run -- so I've bitten the bullet and installed the suite natively. They run perfectly that way (there's no justice). I know what you mean about TacPack errors. The same issues happen with SSW's vACMI. There doesn't seem to be any sign of TacPack appearing in P5D. The 'new' P4D version is still supposedly a beta. Ah, well..... Dave
  12. I've set P5D to report errors> I'm getting a missing bitmap: "Aerosoft Lightning T5\panel\speed_back.bmp". Three missing effects: fx_lit3_sonicboom, fx_lit3_missile_L, fx_lit3_missile_R I'm trying to load the T5, and I'm getting: "MK6_VENTRAL 1.DDS" failed to load (FE_REQUEST_STATUS==13) "PARTS02_N.DDS" failed to load (FE_REQUEST_STATUS==13) You'd be amazed at just how much rubbish there is reported..... Dave
  13. Interesting. I don't have any "*lit*" sound files in the main sound folder. Dave
  14. The advantage to using only the one set of files is space -- if there's no difference between the P4D and the P5D installations it seems daft to have two sets of everything. Moving the files out of the native SimObjects directory results in a CTD for both P4D and P5D, so it does seem to be an initialisation issue -- possibly the sounds? There's certainly (at least) one pointer that's out of whack somewhere. I'm still looking..... Thanks for the bitmap. Dave
