  2. FS2Crew: Maddog X Reboot Version 1.4 now Available! You asked and we delivered! V1.4 includes "Button Control"! V1.4 (April 27, 2018) 'Button Control' is now built in! It uses the same system and key assignments as FS2Crew's other Button Control products. If the VOICE button on the FS2Crew Main Panel is OFF, then Button Control is active. Conversely, if you want to use Voice control, press the VOICE button. To use Button Control, simply create the key assignments for the MAIN and SECONDARY button as shown in the manual (they're unchanged from other FS2Crew's), and follow the Captain's Flow in the manual. Button Control is very easy since it follows a linear order of events and the cues are displayed in text on the Main Panel! A lot of you lobbied hard for us to create a Button Control version for the Maddog, and we listened. This is a good test for us to see how much real demand there is for Button Control compared to Voice Control, since we can see actual sales numbers. So if you want to see Button Control last into the future, please support FS2Crew Maddog! Tell your friends about it! FO will now correctly stow DIAL A FLAP during his climb flow. New voice command: "SWAP COMM ONE / TWO". Minor audio fixes. More nuanced PA Volume Control. Remember: If you don't want to hear the Cabin PA announcements (or you want a lower volume for them), set the PA knob on the Captain's Audio panel to OFF at the start of each flight. As per user request, you can now set the flood lights to come on/off at 10,000 feet instead of 20,000 feet. Please see the Support Forum for detailed info.

  4. The Bulldog Spirit. Around 15 years ago, we produced a simulation of the Bristol Bulldog Mk2A. It became one of our most successful productions and is still in high demand as freeware, though no longer available. 15 years later we now bring you an all-new High Definition model which includes a huge amount of authentic features. All the valve gear, stitch-lacing, metal,fabric and rubber parts have been modeled from careful research and much attention to detail. Many RAF pilots who trained on and flew this machine in the 1930's went on to fly and fight in the Battle of Britain. Once such pilot Douglas Bader, the legless ace, lost both legs as a result of a ground-loop crash in a Bulldog whilst attempting low-level aerobatics on December 14, 1931. The Bulldog was one of the RAF's last front-line biplanes and incorporated many systems and devices that made possible the transition from biplane to monoplane fighter. Highly aerobatic, strong and fast, Pilots of the day loved this aircraft. Sadly no flying example remains although there are quite a few on display in museums around the world. Using the latest tech and techniques we have created what we believe to be the definitive tribute to this iconic and important aeroplane. Let's hope it will be as popular as our first one! https://www.facebook.com/Aeroplaneheaven/?hc_ref=ARQYA8olns5NNxxoaKBOTLW8elS7hcyPQbmdxh2hDJmr8oAm8nFu9DDzR8O0mXHv_cQ
