  1. Captains, We anticipate this week will bring a last round of major changes, and then everything should calm back down once again- which I think all of us are looking forward to. Here is what you can expect; 737, 747 and 777 product lines will all get another round of installer replacements in order to wrap up changes triggered by the wide array of updates we have pushed over the past two months. We anticipate that this will be the last round of mandatory installer updates, as we finally have stability where we want it and feel that mixing base installation and micro update processes will not create confusion for customers and tech support. 747 and 777 product lines are getting an update to provide additional debugging diagnostic information to assist technical support in solving problem reports. 747 and 777 product lines are getting some additional functionality to allow affected customers to gracefully avoid the "captains pfd popup CTD" . All product lines are getting a bit of cleanup and tweaking based on our work of the past couple of weeks. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/515737-23jul-what-to-expect-this-week/ smurf_john

  10. prepar3d / fsx PMDG has a Surprise

    For tonight, I am going to take a break from the constant work and announcements related to product conversions for Prepar3D v4, and instead focus on something new and truly incredible from the development team here at PMDG- namely our upcoming new product release, the PMDG DC-6 Cloudmaster for FSX, FSX-SE, Prepar3D v3 and Prepar3D v4. We are planning to turn her over to you later today, and we wanted to give you a really nice look at what you are getting!

  11. to respond with UK2000 question More products will be added when all the mainstream ones have been taken out of Beta and he starts selling on the website again. For those brave enough to move and delete files around, there are some hacks to most of the scenery to work, please see other threds on this board.But as a rough guideline, you need to do DELETE all BGL file in the UK2000 Products scenery folder (AND Options folder) that have file names with this text:*FS9CODE*.bgl*sockradars*.bgl*Animate*.bgl*timer*.bglOther Specific files:"EGLL_Specials.BGL" Heathrow XtremeFor VFR Airfields also remove ALL files with "*sockradars.bgl" in file name. http://www.uk2000scenery.org/forum/index.php?topic=8846.0 FLIGHT!

However they did state all products to be updated so. smurf_john
