There could be hope with the P3D V4/5 installers but it's probably not gonna work which is a shame as I'd love to take my P 51 and soon to be back B 17 for a flight in the new sim.
Nope, the data structure of MSF is completely different. Remember, it's basically an XBox application.

....What makes you (anyone) think that the current FSX birds won't fly in MSFS2020?
No, they won't. My guess ist that a simple port-over like from FSX to P3D is not to be expected. The differences seem to be remarkable.

Re: p3d v5 hf2 - A2A not showing

All A2A products for P3DV4 & V5 are installed outside the root folder of P3D. They are registered to P3D by the so called Add-on Package system. See here: http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/sdk/add-ons/add-on_packages.html By re-installig P3D the package entry into the add-on.cfg is no longer present. Th...

Re: P3D v5 Hotfix 2

No crashes at all here, but significantly better framerates. As stated above: everyone has his own experience as everyone has his own setup. I bet there are zillions of install variants among zillions of users. You'll never find one common way... :D

It's a bit like with Shroedinger's cat: Only when the box is opened (aka MSFS is officially reseased) you will find out... :D

So true.

Definitely one of my favourite thought experiments... :)

Re: A hint for the Aircraft Configurators

Hello Oskar, This is a good point as presumably 4K monitors will only increase in popularity over the coming months and years (even if some of us are still stuck at 1920 x 1200 on 8-ish year old Dell U2412M, a monitor which remarkably still seems to be in production today. :mrgreen: ) ... Thanks, N...

A hint for the Aircraft Configurators

The 4k Option in the Aircraft Configurators comes in very handy as I'm using a 4k Monitor (actually a 49" TV set) now on my "big" Simulator rig. All 2D Panels without this option are definitely no more easy to neither read or access ... especially when it comes to ageing eyes (despite glasses) :lol:...

Re: First vaccine to show actual efficacy against Covid 19 developed..

The vaccine will have aluminium and mercury components similar to other flu vaccines. Aluminium for one has been linked to Alzheimer’s. and to top it off they will more than likely rush this to market without extensive testing, and then expect us to have the shot every year. I’ll pass, thanks I fin...

Re: First vaccine to show actual efficacy against Covid 19 developed..

Just to add to the mix of different responses: I'll be having the vaccine the day it is available and reasonably safe to use. As Oracle and Patful says, Covid19 can be really bad even for us younger people, and while I feel that I have the health to "take it", I also don't want to be carrying the v...

Re: P3D v5 seems HIGHLY unstable compared to v4

Can't confirm. I have it absolutely stable with Bonana & C172. Have installed 300+ airports. For specs see signature.

Re: [Updated 14 April 2020 with info for current P3Dv4 users] P3Dv5 and A2A Simulations

It might be noteworthy that when using the present P3DV4 installers, the "good old" method of first loading a default A/C and THEN change in-game to any other complex A/C like the A2A model has become more important again. I'm not completely sure but it might be that this is still a general requirem...

Re: [Updated 14 April 2020 with info for current P3Dv4 users] P3Dv5 and A2A Simulations

Thanks a lot, Nick. That indeed did the trick ! I wasn't aware of that. There are also a few changes within SimConnect and I use the new SimConnect.dll on all A2A A/C, but obviously that was not (yet) it... :D . Thanks a lot for your expertise !

Re: [Updated 14 April 2020 with info for current P3Dv4 users] P3Dv5 and A2A Simulations

I wish I could share your optimism about compatibility of all A2A Aircraft. On one of my machines I have removed P3DV4 and solely run P3DV5. I pointed the installation to the (new) default folder "C:\Users\User\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons" . Installation as well as updating to the newest version w...

Next time I'm bringing the ingredients for whisky macs which sadly they didn't seem to have to hand in Wolverhampton. To be fair, they had plenty of other drink to wash down all the piri-piri chicken though! :mrgreen:

Sounds reasonable ! I'm definitely looking forward to this... :D
