  1. All boxed products should always be returned to the popint of sales as they have sold you the product.
  2. Could be a problem with the joystick. Could you let the aircraft fly level on AP with the joystick disabled? In FS the AP will always use the trim to keep altitude so it will show if there is a problem.
  3. Okay, I laughed, you win.... Contact info@aerosoft-shop to get a free product.
  4. Okay, the next one to make a beaver/twotter joke that has multiple interpretations will get banned or get a free copy of the Beech. Now there is a challenge, what joke will be funny and accepted and what joke will get me banned....
  5. That's a forum problem, click right on the link and select save as... If it does not solve it, let me know and I'll mail it
  6. The repaints also have some additional models adaptations so it is not that clear. But I will sure find some time to sort that out. For now, at this moment, the repaints are only part of the Freight Dogs product
  7. That depends of course a bit on the balance. If the load is spread well over the aircraft you will not need any trim and will fly very economically, but if you put all your load in the tail of the aircraft you will need a lot of nose down trim and that will cause a lot of drag. Btw, you choose a perfect aircraft to step up to larger aircraft.
  8. Yes, end of this month we will release "Freight Dogs, The Scenery" and that will be 22.50 Euro, for customers who have the Beaver, Beech, Misty or FSCargo will get it discounted at 15 Euro. Both FSAddon and Aerosoft Online like to make sure that customers can build on what they got. Btw, the Beaver comes in a slightly different version here and both the Beech and Beaver have new liveries. The new bare metal Beech looks real good.
  9. Okay, a few days late, but we were just plain stupid to try to release on Friday 13nd. We had problems like we never seen before, from two (!) ftp servers that crashed to internet connections that slowed to a crawl. Never again. But it's done and it is great. We seriously believe that you are not likely to get this much for so small a price. Check it out at and if you find our servers a bit slow that is because we got a lot of traffic, but more bandwidth will be added in half an hour. The Product In the wild border region between Alaska and Canada roads are rare and the weather can make transport by ship and truck an adventures affair. So a lot of goods are transported by aircraft to the small strips that are about as common as a car park in downtown Chicago. The pilots who fly there tend to use older aircraft that are mechanically simple and easy to maintain and are sturdy and highly reliable. They rank amongst the best pilots in the world as they fly on the smallest strips, with very little navigational aids and in the worlds worst weather. They call themselves Freight Dogs. Aerosoft (in combination for FSAddon) will now bring this flying to your screen with Freight Dogs, an exiting combination of three aircraft, six airports and the module based (meaning it actually expands what flight simulator can do) FS Cargo. All parts are perfectly matched to form a complete extension to Flight Simulator that will give you hours and hours of fun. The Aircraft The DHC2 Beaver is the perfect aircraft for the smallest strips and as it comes in an amphibian version (for water and runways) and a tundra wheel version (for real small strips) you will be able to land anywhere. Incredibly strong and versatile, this aircraft will get you into the smallest field. The Beech 18 is more suitable for the larger loads. With the two big radial engines and a load capacity that is only limited by the length of runway needed to take off, it will serve you perfectly in your role as Freight Dog. Both these aircraft have been designed over 50 years ago, but they are still needed as many bush pilots will tell you that there is no modern aircraft that can do what these aircraft can do. They are legends, but hard working legends. Real workhorses. The Scenery Freight Dogs do not need a 300 feet wide runway, with lighting, ILS, VASI and approach maps. A strip of flattened bush and they’ll land there. In fact, a Freight Dog landing at a major airport told his friends back home it was a very short but INCREDIBLY wide runway. To bring the cargo into the airfields of Freight Dogs in good weather you need to be a good navigator and an even better pilot. When you do the same in more normal, meaning lousy, weather you will find that you really need to know what you are doing. The six small airports (three in Alaska and three in Canada BC) are all so close together that your flights will be relatively short. There are two tarmac runways, two gravel runways and two sea plane bases and you will find that each of them has special difficulties. Most are hard to approach when the wind is not favorable because of high terrain and all are hard to find. The Module Now you got the airfields and the aircraft, you only need to be told where there is work for you. Freight Dogs get paid for hauling stuff around and FS Cargo will tell you what to pick up, where to take it and how long you got to do it. When you arrive at the airport you will see the cargo waiting for you, so taxi to it, load it and get it to the destination. Fs Cargo will keep track of your performance. Don’t confuse FS Cargo with a standard load manager as is part of many products, it’s not. This is a real extension of Flight Simulator. Some additional information Please note that the aircraft are basically similar to the full version of the aircraft that are sold, just some of the functions have been removed. FS Cargo is also nearly identical to the full version, although it lacks the editor that allows you to add airports; it is capable of loading the FS Cargo airport files created by others. Already hundreds are available ad Great care has been taken to make the scenery compatible with other addons for the region and you will find that it merges seamlessly with addons as Misty Fjords. Please note that customers in the US and Canada, will be able to order the boxed version directly from our North America offices, saving a lot on shipping! The boxed version is scheduled for release in Feb 2006.
  10. The navaids are all compiled in the BGL files and it seems impossible to manually edit them. They are in the FS2004MainFileAerosoftSH-60 SeahawkLHDsceneryAF_CPB_LHD_NAV.BGL files where CPB indicates the boxer. I'll have a look at these files myself here.
  11. We got a few thousands customers who do NOT have the problem and one customer who does have the problem. It seems logical to assume the problem is at the single system. I have no way how to debug this one as it is totally unlogical, if you have installed FS again and we are sure there were no traces of the old Fs left, there still is something that makes your system different from any other I know. Having spoken to some folks at MS to see if there could be a hardware related issue, we are still at a loss. I am just convinced the issue is somewhere in your machine, if it is not we would have a lot more customers that have the problem. After all, it is not an issue that is hard to detect. As I understand it is a boxed copy, you can contact to handle the issue. I'll inform them the software is incompatible with the hardware/OS due to some unexplained reason.
  12. No, I was angry, at myself. It was a stupid mistake. Bugs do happen and they can't be avoided, but this one surely could.
  13. Darned, you are right, I copied a wrong section in the last update. Attached a zip that solves this problem. Unzip to the mail FS2004 directory.
  14. For humans 'beginning' would mean the first 6 weeks, for software developers it could stretch, lol. I recently seen some updates and it looks really sweet, but I also know the devs and they will not release until they are ready.
  15. The moment I got news I'll let it know. To say the project is looking good is ofcourse incorrect, lol.
  16. You really cut a few corners here... We sold thousands of this product and still you are the only one that has the problem. Stating the problem is in the software and not in your system is a rather strong statement. Now as we know there is no problem in the code there is not a lot we can do, there is nothing to fix. I have no explanation why you still have this problem after a clean install. Something on your system is different from those used by other customers. I take offense to the way you state we are inable and reluctant. Apart from the fact I did indeed miss your second post (and apologized for that), we handled the situation as well as was possible. This puts out customer support in a bad daylight. If you would be so kind to send us the order number we'll discuss the issue internally. Normally we do not do refunds as we have no way to be sure the software is indeed removed from the system, but I will listen to the comments from my collegues.
  17. And downloading... The first to get me a good set of images of the Warthog over this scenery get's a free product!
  18. I'll try to get some new images.... We know the project is on schedule (or at least as much as can be said about on schedule in a state like this).
  19. I'm sorry, I missed your last post. Sorry, but I have got no idea what to do to solve the issue. As far as we know you are the only one who has that issue so we have to assume it is something that is local on your machine. I have the idea it is related to a base file of FS2004 that is replaced by something.
  20. I just can't recreate the problem. Believe I tried.... I can jump to any Boxer and get the right reading in the Seahawk and a Cessna. Your FS has decided to use a VOR that is a rather long way off and ignore the one that is close and has the same freq. Now using the same frequency for a VOR is totally normal, there are many navaids that share the same digits and that is no problem as long as they are not close to each other. I have no explanation for that. Now the nasty thing is that I am sure that it is something that is local on your system, something NOT installed by us. But what and how (it feels like a complete system part ot FS is wrong), I got no idea. What I do know if that is you install the Boxer on a clean FS you won;t see this problem. And that is just about the worst answer I could give you.
  21. Many people say that the Saitek range is the best. And I agree with that, I use the X52 and although it looks like a pimped joystick with all the blue lights, it is solid and very precise. And you can switch the lights off...
  22. Yes, but there wil be no announcement before we have at least an idea of a date, contracts etc.
  23. Here some more dev shots, now we'll stay low for a while until we know more on systems, liveries, dates.
  24. Well, in fact it is simple, we go for the aircraft that are not totally serious, that allow you to have some fun. Doesn't mean the aircraft is not serious, but it means that the aircraft won't look stupid when it is flown low and fast or far away from real airports. And of course, the Bronco is simply a very strange aircraft and one that refuses to go away. Personally I love it.
  25. There will be several version, but our 'base' model, the one we got all info on, is the one is uses (or was used?) by the German Luftwaffe for target towing... But as always, somewhere in the middle of the developments we ask you people to suggest versions and liveries.
