Bill,

If you would take a little advice... stay where you are with the cockpit at the moment! There are too many "ifs" with V4. I'm currently working my way through some of them and will know more as testing for a certain aircraft progresses! ;)

regards

Darryl

Just for testing, I have installed the B-17 in my P3D v4. Of course I knew the Accusim extension wouldn't work, so I only installed the base WoP2 B-17.
And the WoP2 B-17 works quite well in fact. The cockpit is clickable, the engines can be started from cold&dark.

The only problem is on the graphic quality side. Until today I only knew and used the Accusim version of the B-17, which still looks superb today for me. I had never seen or used the non-Accusimed B-17... and well, I have to confess I have uninstalled the B-17 from my P3Dv4 right away. Instead, I'll continue enjoying the Accusim B-17 in P3Dv3, waiting for the P3Dv4 version to reach the stores.

But for those who don't want to wait, or those who don't have their FSX/P3Dv3 installed anymore on their computers, and really need a B-17 in P3Dv4, just install the WoP2 version directly in the P3Dv4 main folder, and you'll be good to go. ;)

The WoP3 P-47 without its Accusim extension works well too ! I kept that one, because it looks good (*almost* identical to the Accusimed version)

The more recent warbirds (Spit, Mustang and P-40) don't work though, even the non-Accusim versions. They display well, but nothing works and the plane won't start.

I'm actually holding off on P3Dv4 from my FSX:SE for 2 reasons:
- new pc needed
- ALL my A2A birds will have to be available in v4 native download.

So +100 for porting them!
