As promised earlier today, and after all the testing has been done, we finally released a major update to our ACARS system. Please read carefully:
- If you want to enable our ACARS to work perfectly with PMDG aircraft, you should go to your PMDG addons folder inside the main Prepar3D folder (for example C:Program FilesPrepar3DPMDGPMDG 737 NGX) and insert this next text in the end of the 737NGX_Options.ini file:
So that the aircraft allows reading of the events such as lights, flaps, etc. If you have more PMDG addons (747, 777, etc), you should do the same for every one of them, just changing the 737 example above to 747 or 777.
As the ACARS now allows saving and storing of PIREPs if these cannot be sent to the server for some reason, it now REQUIRES administrative privileges and will ask for them if required. If you cannot send a PIREP at the end of the flight because your internet went down, don't worry... It will now be saved on disk and when you get back online, just run the ACARS and it will prompt you to send it then. The logs will then be deleted from disk once they're sent successfully.
We hope you enjoy this new version (no more landing lights OFF penalties because the ACARS couldn't read them) and as usual, send any bug reports to firstname.lastname@example.org
