    P3D v4 Unable to delete airport library objects

    Using the version of ADE I have been trying to delete the KSAN default airport tower and two storage tanks without success. Reading up on posts, this is what I am doing: 1. Open the default KSAN airport in P3Dv4. 2. Create a project name for it and saved it. 3. Re-opened the project (just to...

    Are signature images allowed?

    I think not as I haven't seen any but thought I would ask... plus I haven't been able to load any. Just curious. Clutch

    Just wanted to post an little announcement and a big-big THANK YOU to Arno and all who contribute to the FSDeveloper forums. Without you guys I never would have had the inspiration, the drive and dedication it takes of several years of leaning to code, learning to design and develop in order...

    P3D v4 ACM message appears every single P3D boot

    Arno, I came across a repeatable instance whereby ACM will produce its GUI info window every time P3Dv4 starts (have not checked for other platforms). I am not sure if this would be considered an issue so let me explain the situation. I have an add-on where I have my latest custom autogen...

    Issue of objects not working in both P3D and FSX

    I have come across an issue that I need some advice/insight/help on. I created some lights that work as agn. If I process them using MCX as P3D and place them in my addon scenery folder (not the flightsim platform's folders), they work in P3D but not in FSX as I would expect. Again using MCX...

    Correcting Airports - more than just moving?

    I have noticed several bush strips, dirt strips and single runway GA airports not aligned with my photoreal scenery. Most are fairly close, maybe just requires a little rotation or small movement. Planning to use ADE for this. But I fear there is more to it than just moving an airport. For...

    P3D v4 Setting up 3DSMax and P3Dv4 correctly... issues

    Trying to set up 3DSMax 2014 with P3Dv4 but it’s been around four years since I modeled with it so it feels like I am starting from scratch. Could use a few pointers as I am getting several errors as I try to setup properly. Reading many pages of the FSDeveloper Max forums I was able to set up...

    P3D v3 Does ACM create an add-on.xml file for P3Dv3?

    Hi Arno, I wanted to confirm if this is correct. If I install ACM for P3Dv4 it creates an a AutogenConfigurationMerger folder and an add-on.xml file inside it and places the folder into 'C:\{Documents}\Lockheed\Prepar3D v3\Add-ons' folder. . When I run P3Dv4 for the first time P3D asks if I...

    P3D v4 Need a little clarification on the Add-on.xml method

    I am working on my first attempt at creating an Add-on.xml for my add-on scenery. Through research here and the P3D SDK I was able to create one that works but I guess the only way to know for sure would be to completely uninstall P3Dv4 (or v3), reinstall and see if my scenery remains...

    Remember the TV series 'Breaking Bad'?...

    We're currently beta testing an area around Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, and I thought we might have a little fun with simmers when we release this. This release will actually be freeware as a sample. Those familiar with the series will remember the infamous 1986 motorhome where Walter...

    P3D v4 Installer cannot find P3Dv4 installation despite using correct path?

    I am beta testing my installer and I am using the Windows registry AppPath key to check if P3Dv4 is indeed installed. I am using: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3d v4 Key=AppPath which I read here seems to be the standard way to check. My installer works fine with my...

    ACM questions regarding multiple FS platforms

    Hi Arno, still testing ACM with my add-on which drew a few new questions. 1. So I have testers installing on one FS version (which I presume the majority of users have), but I also have testers which will install ACM for more than one say FSX:SE and P3Dv4. All installs and updates ok. The...

    P3D v4 ACM affected by P3Dv4.4 update?

    Having a beta-tester crashing with my installer (which includes ACM install), when trying to install for P3Dv4.4. I would not think that LM would change anything that much with regards to a point update but I just thought I would ask as I explore the issue. Also, Arno, is the version of ACM we...

    FSX Converting from P3D to FSX... a no show!

    So I am converting a light model I created several years ago. They work in P3D's but not in FSX or FSX SE. So I figured I need to I just need to create a version with the FSX bglcomp and all would be good. So far a no go. Here are my steps: 1. Use the MCX Wizard " Convert and Place Obect"...

    spb2xml app - access denied?

    I'm trying to use the app spb2xml.exe to look at the various .spb files. I believe I have followed the instructions correctly but all I get is "access denied" messages when running it in the command prompt. I believe the error is referring to the file I want to decode. Anyone else come across...

    Paths for installed flightsim platform?

    My add-on works with a variety of flightsim versions, so I need to know from the user what platform/version he/she is using. For my installer I am thinking of either a drop-down list, check-box, or a "search for the flightsim folder" type input. What I think is the best way to determine the...

    P3D v3 Issues with ACM... need help

    Arno (or anyone who knows), I am having some issues with ACM that I hope can be resolved. I am testing this with P3Dv3 and I feel confident I have the latest version of ACM. In short, neither my default.xml or default AutogenDescriptions.spb are being updated. I installed ACM and all seem to...

    P3D v4 Add-on software installer

    Hey there, Can anyone suggest a software installer they have been happy with for their own products? The only unique feature with my add-on is the downloads will be large. The smallest file add-on would be around 1.75GB while others will be in the 10's of GBs! Thx, Clutch

    P3D v4 Convert .spb to .xml

    Years ago (literally) I converted the P3D AutogenDescriptions.spb file to an xml for some editing/tests file but I cannot remember I did that. I thought I found it in the P3D SDK but so far no luck? I am still searching but if someone knows would much appreciate! :) Clutch

    P3D v4 A couple of questions...

    About to test my add-on with the ACM tool. 1. Any thought to having the tool make a backup of the current state of the default.xml or the AutogenDescriptions files when installing? Thoughts? 2. What if a user already has my scenery installed with ACM and now I want to provide a "version 2"...
