VRS TACPAC FLIR/Milviz F-15E problems

Post by JonathanBleeker » Sat Sep 01, 2012 8:00 pm

Hi guys

If any of you experience issues with the TACPAC FLIR display and have the Milviz F-15E installed please use this weapons dll:

Path to install is your FSX location\Modules\Milviz

Sorry been away.\

does this mean that Miviz F-15E is ok with the new TacPack. I am not a pre-order of this but I will be getting it if your F-15E is compatible for sure. I always hoped this would be the case.Cheers

If you mean that the MV F-15E will work with tacpack as in using it's weapons and stuff... then no. Not at this time...

We have to wait until two things happen:

1) tacpack's dev side is released (and so is the SDK that shows us how to integrate it into our systems)

2) we do the integration.

this might take... who knows...

Is this still relevant to the latest version of TacPack?

I don't see why it shouldn't be. The problem was a conflict between the 2 modules in attaching to the FSX DirectX instance. With that removed it shouldn't matter what VRS does as long as you don't try to run TACPACK while running the F-15E in its current state.

Jonathan,

"TacPac"? I wasn't aware that there was a TacPac. I never use TacPac, so I don't purchase AC with it.

No it doesn't make it use TACPACK, just resolves some conflicts between VRS TACPACK and the F-15E's weapons module. But it also introduces some other stability fixes which is why I recommend downloading and installing this dll.

No "path" option given to install. It just opens to "jibberish" I can't read. (desktop)
Direct manually to recommended path, "DUH" :? ;)

It isn't an installer. It is a file you must unzip into your FSX location\Modules\Milviz as the post at the top states.

I already have that .dll in my modules folder dated 2011, as the original file. Do I need to update it??

Probably although given how temperamental this bird has been for some I would say if it ain't broke don't fix it.
