For Immediate Release

Farmington, CT – August 28, 2008 – A2A Simulations, a leader in high-end flight simulation software, has released a patch for their Wings of POWER II: P47 “Thunderbolt” for Microsoft Flight Simulator X. They also released the Thunderbolt under their new “Solo” line of aircraft, which is compatible with both Flight Simulator 2004 and Flight Simulator X.

The patch is to correct issues related to the P47 found in the WWII FIGHTERS pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator X only, and not needed for those who are running Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004.

Included in the patch:
- Aircraft exported with native FSX tools
- SP2 / Acceleration supported
- Prop clipping fixed
- Light bloom black screen bug fixed
- Additional minor FSX fixes

Thanks guys, excellent work as usual.
Don't have much time to fly it at the moment though due to a certain plane with four P&W's and a cabin full of screaming passenger's :D

I am not able to move the magneto selector from the VC. I prefer to do a cold start from the VC rather than pressing the ctrl-e buttons on the keyboard. If I can't use the magneto selector, this obviously becomes a bit more difficult! Is this a problem on my end, or has anyone else experienced this? Still, this is a fabulous aircraft!

OK, we updated both the patch and solo pack so if you downloaded these on Thursday, Aug 28th, just redownload.

Sorry if I seem like an idiot, but to get your P47 into FSX, am I correct in thinking that I purchase the FS9 version and then use the patch?

No, the patch is for the P-47D that was released on the WWII Fighters CD-ROM which featured only one of the P-47 models from the FS2004 Thunderbolt pack. WWII Fighters has an FSX install option but the models were released before the FSX service packs and the Accceration expansion were available. This P-47 patch is to fix graphic issues appearing on the WWII Fighters FSX version of the Thunderbolt under the current build of FSX.

You can't install the Thunderbolt pack directly to FSX. You'd need to install it to FS2004 first and then manually copy over the various files to FSX. There might be some renaming involved as well but I don't know for sure. Even then I don't know for certain how successful this transfer will be. And if you get the FS2004 pack to work in FSX, the patch would only cover one of models and not the whole pack. I doubt the patch would work at all for you though.

Your best option for FSX is to buy either the WWII Fighters CD or the 'just released' Solo Thunderbolt that is basically a fully patched 'FSX rebuild' of the P-47D-20.

Scott,

Regarding the Mag switch, I just downloaded again and it still isn't working for me. Also, the Turbo Overspeed light blinks continually even when I am sitting on the ground at idle. Am I missing something? I purchased the P47 this morning and I assume that is the only download I need.

Thanks,

Tom

The turbo overspeed light is largely a decorative animation. You'll notice that the boost lever advances automatically to maintain a constant manifold pressure; eventually you'll reach an altitude where the turbo would in actuality have to overspeed to maintain that pressure. At that point the light turns solid. Don't worry, in FS you can't damage your turbo by exceeding the overspeed limit.

As for the blinking of the light, this has some historic accuracy:
Training manual page 12.
Training manual page 11.

The proposed future AccuSim add-on for the P-47 will address this inherent limitation of FS.

Tom,

Sorry, my error. I didn't properly re-direct the download to the new installer. I reset the download counts and it's all set so give it another shot.

Scott.

I have both FSX and FS9 running on my machine. Yesterday, I picked up the WoP3 P-47D and just love it.

My FS9 install has the WoP2 P-47 (purchased 10/12/2005) and I'm giving thought to bringing it over to FSX after finding the FSX Patch. I should have my original install file on a CD.

Is there a preferred process for installing the WoP2 P-47 in FSX?? Should I just bring the relevant files and folders over to FSX and run the patch directly?? Or can I extract the contents of the patch, and apply it manually??

Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance

Seems the patch cannot find my WoP2 P-47 install.

I noticed that the FS9 install has the aircraft folders beginning with WoP_P-47, whereas my FSX installs have prefixes beginning with WoP2_ or WoP3_.

Perhaps my FS9 P-47 sets are not WoP2??

Hello the WOP2 P47 is just one P47D. If you have more than one model you have the old fs2004 P-47D
