Some new Captains had written with problems in their post-install process, and we noted that since the User Guide had not been updated to reflect the plethora of installers, we decided to fix a few things, freshen the Guide, and call this a new Service Pack.
The Full and Fixpack installers have already been updated, and here are some Refresh Installers for those who insist on having the latest in everything.
The biggest change is to SceneryScanner - if it couldn't find Navdata elements, it had the tendency to simply stop working. That won't happen now.
About Our Installers (and, why are there so many?)
There are several different installers, but you likely only need one installer.
If you are updating from the original 1.8.1, we have very small "Refresh Installers" for you. Just download the FS9, or SimConnect-32, or SimConnect-64 installer from the links below, and point it to your simulator's root folder.
These Refresh Installers only contain updated docs, DLLs, EXEs, and GAUges. They must be installed over an existing FSCaptain 1.8.1, as they contain no sounds and no configuration files!
We're only referring to the Refresh Installers here in the forum, since that's where the 'unofficial release' took place.
All Full and Fixpack installers have already been updated to 1.8.1 SP2. So if you haven't installed FSCaptain 1.8.1, just search for our normal Full or Fixpack installer.
Is there Any More that I have to Read?
Each Installer download has an obvious README file (README-9 for FS9 and README-32 & -64 for the SimConnect versions). The READMEs also expound on the need to FULLY BACKUP any current FSCaptain installation before installing!! It doesn't cost more than a few seconds of CPU and drive access time... but it could save your flight sim career in the meanwhile!
Is that it??
Sure, that's enough reading for now!
When you have downloaded the right Installer for you, unzip it and review the README files, and welcome to the world of FSCaptain 1.8.1 SP1.
Happy Flying with ACME!
