Will AirTrack run with Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D? How?

Posted on May 8, 2012 11:55 by skyfox

Yes it will!

For this you will need to grab the FSX manual installation plugin file and install it manually. Other than that, it works just like FSX.

Here's a brief how-to on how to make it work:

1) Install or have Prepar3D (goes without saying)

2) Download the AirTrack-FSX-v1.4-gauge.zip file from the downloads section of this web site. Open it.

3) Copy the airtrack.gau file to the gauges sub-directory of the main Prepar3D folder

4) On the "gauges" directory of the Prepar3D folder there should be a file called missionpanels.cfg ; open it with Notepad

5) Below the line that says Window09=Countdown add a new line with:

Window10=AirTrack

6) At the end of the file add the following lines:

[Window10]
size_mm=10, 10
window_pos=0.01, 0.01
background_color=0,0,0
ident=10099
visible=1
update_rate=10
gauge00=airtrackFSX!AirTrack, 0, 0

7) Save the file; this might be a bit tricky due to permissions but it's doable; I had to save it on the desktop and move it back, overwriting the original file.

And that's it; launch Prepar3D and you should see a small white square on the top-left corner of the screen when you launch the default plane; on AirTrack you should see an entry in data sources saying: "FSX on X.X.X.X"; tap on it to connect to P3D.

Tested on Windows 7 - 64 bits.

If this doesn't work for you, it might be something else; check your plane files (you may need to add the above to specific panel.cfg files or so) and your connectivity, anti-viruses, firewalls, etc.

If still having troubles, don't hesitate to contact support.
