ATR72-500 for X-plane11?

Recommended Posts

Found my old DVD with the ATR72-500 for X-plane10, downloaded the update to v. 1.1 and installed to X-plane11.

X-plane11 say that the GPS is not compatible, and I must install a new one with planemaker.

Planemaker is not my favorite program, but if you can link me a beginners tutorial of how to install a new GPS, I will give it a try.

The easiest solution would be an update of the plane to 11. :D

Hello Vindeballe,

 

we have talked about this internally, but at the moment a XP11 version seems unlikely, unfortunately.

 

One thing to try (make a backup first!):

 

1. Open the .acf file in PlaneMaker. Save immediately. Close PlaneMaker.

 

2. Open the .acf file in a text editor and search for the lines

 

P acf/_philipp_fms_slot0 1

P acf/_philipp_fms_slot1 1

 

Change these lines to

 

P acf/_philipp_fms_slot0 0

P acf/_philipp_fms_slot1 0

 

This forces X-Plane 11 to use the old X-Plane 10 FMC. Whenever you make changes in PlaneMaker to this file, you need to make this manual change again.

 

I don't know if it works, but give it a try.

 

There might be more adjustments necessary; esp. the flight performance will probably very different from X-Plane 10.

Thank you very much, now it loads and fly.

I will investigate it's behavior and maybe play a little more with planemaker.
