Version 1.8.2 is officially released here in our forum and website as of today. Resellers will be updated in the next few days.
Note: if you are already running 1.8.2 Release Candidate, there's nothing else for you to do. It uses the same May 25 2020 code as this Release Version. Only the README and User Guide has been updated since then. Go and enjoy Happy Flying with ACME!
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 1.8.1, you can use our "Fixpack Installers". 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 Fixpack Installers only contain updated docs, sound files, DLLs, EXEs, and GAUges. They must be installed over an existing FSCaptain no later than 1.8.1, as they do not contain all sounds and configuration files!
If you are new to FSCaptain, or if you are running a version older than 1.8.1, then you want one of the "Full Installers" which includes all files necessary to run FSCaptain. We've included notes in each download ZIP file on how to secure your career when you update via a Full 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 correct Installer for you, unzip it and review the README- files, and welcome to the world of FSCaptain 1.8.2.
Happy Flying with ACME!
