    transponder VFR hack

    I seem to vaguely remember a hack to change the default VFR code in the Becker transponder from 7000 to 1200. Can somebody shoot me a link or remind me how it was done. I did mine in FSX back in the day but now I've upgraded to P3D V4 and it's back to the 7000 value.
  2. Apparently Thranda Designs is working on a PC-6 for X-plane . Here is a Google translation regarding Marcel and P3D. Perhaps it is just rumour but offered FWIW: Helifan123 wrote: Incidentally, the Porter will NOT appear for Prepar3D or be supported for P3D. That's just too much work for Marcel due to the high complexity. I think that's a shame, but I thought so because of his eg. Simflight very passionate discussion against the P3D. It goes without saying that Marcel's decision for which he develops. However, the trend is probably against his assessment that the P3D would remain only a marginal phenomenon. After all, the proportion of P3D simulants has increased in the past few years ( to 30% each year ( click ), which is up to now 40% FSX users over, trend falling. Sure: not representative, but after all, the VFR pilots are one, no THE core group that wants to address Marcel with his Porter. Even more clearly the figures from the Aerosoft forum , where only a letter of intent should be made: About 50% indicate here, soon to use the Prepar3D, the FSX is just over a third of the votes, X-Plane in third place With 17%. I really would have loved the Porter, especially since I have enjoyed using the age-old implementation of FSD for many years. Unfortunately, they can not install outside the FSX. From the dream .... Greetings from Berlin Markus
  3. I needed a turbine bush plane and, although I much preferred Marcel's PC-6, delivery seemed very indefinite. I sprung instead for the MV Turbo Beaver. The PC-6 simulation is good and it seems to fly realistically. You must manage ITT as well as torque. I don't like the curtain between the cockpit and cabin. I always liked looking at cabin in my Twin Otter to see my white knuckled pax.

    P3Dv4.1 Sound problems

    Since both files had the same name I just downloaded the most recent one. The last CAB file fixed the problem. Humbly suggest you include it in the installer package for other customers.

    P3Dv4.1 Sound problems

    Just the last file or both? Will try and report back to you.

    P3Dv4.1 Sound problems

    Same problem here. Win7Pro_64bit. I just installed P3D V4 for the first time on my computer. I re-downloaded Bronco X from PC Aviator. Installed from .exe installer as P3D V4. First takeoff as I raised the gear, the warning bell sounded funny. Kind of truncated and distorted. The screen image froze momentarily. Same thing happened with raising the flaps. A few seconds later, crash to desktop. I tried it again from three different airports, one default from ORBX, to see if that would make a difference but the same behaviour occurred. Error message reads as follows: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: Prepar3D.exe Application Version: Application Timestamp: 5b2c3263 Fault Module Name: XAudio2_7.dll Fault Module Version: 9.29.1962.0 Fault Module Timestamp: 4c0643cc Exception Code: 80000003 Exception Offset: 000000000002b72c OS Version: 6.1.7601. Locale ID: 1033 Additional Information 1: ff14 Additional Information 2: ff1462cabb05d91d3417992e2dd57936 Additional Information 3: 2d7d Additional Information 4: 2d7d70d36e848f16fae61b8710fddcf0 There is definitely a bug here. Would installing the Sys_Cab files referenced above help the problem??

    Flies like a puppet

    Hi ddeuce, Good to have you back at the forum. Continued good wishes for your recovery. I have noticed a big difference in the way the Bronco handles at the speeds between 150 kias and say, 100 kias. When I'm on short final if I don't keep the speed up, it gets "mushy" and "yaw-y" sort of like the puppet on a string behavior you describe. At what speed does this behavior occur in your scenario? Are your feet fixed on the rudder pedals?
  8. Hi Sascha, I would definitely be on board for this updated version. Let me know if you need a beta tester again. I have a much higher spec machine now.

    Twin Otter Extended Extended?

    I'd be in for an upgrade at around 7 euro. Any flight modeling and turbine engine modeling improvements would be helpful. Maybe some of the work done on the new PC-6 engine would be helpful? I'd especially like to have an built-in Pilot/FO vocal checklist like the one done recently for the Manfred Jahn group Douglas_C-47_Beta_V3.14. It is charming and realistic and adds to the immersion. If freeware guys could do one this nice, I know it would be easy for the Aerosoft team to come up with one. Obie
  10. Thanks for the update Marcel. You have a loyal (though sometimes impatient) fan base. Sorry for the loss of your friend and colleague. I know the final result will be groundbreaking. Best Regards, Obie
  11. Can't you just imagine deMedici saying to da Vinci, "Leo... It looks great I tell ya'. Now come on down from the scaffold and have a little wine." Obie (one of the huddled masses breathlessly waiting for this masterpiece)
  12. Good question Matthias. Just my guess, but if the landing light is retractable you could simply use the glass PAR globe without a plexi (perspex) cover as would be necessary if the light was mounted in the leading edge of the wing Cessna style. As we know the plexi is subject to obscuration due to scratches, environmental degradation, and crazing (just look at how many car headlights have "cataracts" the next time you are in a parking lot). On the Porter, an occasional quick spray with Windex and a quick swipe with a paper towel and you're good to go.
