This application can be used as a launcher application for both FSX and Prepar3D. Flights can be loaded before launching the simulator or when the simulator is already running. New flights can be created by selecting one of the installed aircraft, selecting the start location (runway or parking position), selecting the type of weather and the time of day. Improvements: FTX region and lights switching, startup camera selection, recently loaded flights menu, faster startup, tuning of COM and NAV radios, profiles, ephemeris, nearby airports and numerous fixes and improvements.

Run the included install.exe application and follow the instructions. It is advised not to install in the Program Files or the Program Files (x86) folder due to the special access rules for these folders.

Before running makerwys.ex, make sure you have all your scenery's active in your scenery library. If you use several scenery.cfg files that each serves a different simulator configuration, please make sure that you have a scenery.cfg file active (C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D\scenery.cfg or C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX\scenery.cfg) that contains all of your installed scenery's.

New in this version (Full ChangeLog in releasenotes.txt):

  • V7.2 20130117:
  • Added - Select a runway with an ILS and right click to tune one of the NAV (standby) radios and set the course on VOR 1/2; only when the sim is running of course.
  • Changed - Layout of preferences dialog box.
  • Fixed - Tuning COM 2 was always disabled.
  • Fixed - Engine RPM sliders for engines no. 2,3 and 4 (6,7 and 8) were placed on top of the slider for engine no. 1 (5).

The application is freeware and can be redistributed as long as the original SimLauncher.zip file remains intact and as long as you give me some credit.
