FSLSpotlights v2.0 for Prepar3D v4.1 now available!

Recommended Posts

Lefteris Kalamaras

This release is necessary if you wish to enjoy full dynamic light capabilities in your A320-X.

As before, the product will enable FSLSpotlights for other aircraft around the LGAV area - however, if you have already purchased a serial number to activate the product fully, you can use that in v2.0 free of charge as well!

Download the new version here!

Hello, For the spotlight we have to install it in a specific file or just the path of our P3DV4? Unfortunately by putting the normal path for my P3DV4 the spotlight does not work. Can you help me if there is a path for it to work please? thank you very much

Dont work in p3d v4.1 

IT does work. Have you tried disabling your antivirus while installing as well as tried disabling it prior to starting your sim?

Malcolm,

The prompt menu bottom left is not present in the FSL A320-X (or the ConcordeX for that matter) since the Spotlight functions are integrated in the product directly. So the absense of the menu is not an indication of something gone wrong.

Malcolm's problem was that he hadn't excluded c:\Programdata\FlightSimLabs\LAAS and ALL subfolders from his antivirus.

Can you please do the same?

Hi there,

Just downloaded Spotlight and was wondering if it is supposed to say trial version. Also I would like to know if spotlight works even with DL off. When DL off does it still uses DL or something else ?

There's a problem with the Spotlights uninstaller--when I uninstalled Spotlights 2.0.0.1 to install the new version, the add-ons.cfg file (in C:\ProgramData\...) was left with a [Package.x] section for FSLabs Spotlights by the uninstaller...in fact the uninstaller moved it to the top of the list...from [Package.4] to [Package.0]

This was definitely the uninstaller...I checked the add-ons.cfg immediately before and immediately after running it.

Regards

Dumb question:

Could someone confirm this is working in non-demo mode for A320X with no need to purchase it?

If So - It should be stated more clearly into product description page IMHO.

Regards.

I've pulled v2.0.0.2 for now as people are reporting crashes with it.

Please use 2.0.0.1 for now.

Also not for me. I spent hours now to get a simple tool working and it is highly dissatisfying with this lack of support. The Airbus I will definitely not buy from these programmers rather stay with Aerosoft as well.

Dear Raphael

Have you opened a support ticket and received no answer? I haven't seen any requests for assistance from you, then again without a last name as per our rules it's difficult to find your tickets.

Spotlights work in 100% of the cases unfortunately there are situations where the users Antivirus settings are not properly set up hence the error.

In Mr Holland's case I am personally assisting as I happened to get his ticket.

Dear Goerig,

thanks. Now you can possibly call me Lefteris, as that's my first name. I would love it if you could also fix your display name to be your full first and last name. Thanks.

The issue was that the files I downloaded were for V1 and not V2. According to the customer service I received the following answer: Those files are actually for v1 - any .ini file which contains "attenuation" rather than "pitch" and "heading" is for v1. Hope this helps anybody with similar issues. Thank you very much !

Spotlights are free for use with the A320 and the Concorde. You only need to purchase if you want to use them with 3rd party aircraft.

They are integrated with the sim.

I am so sorry, maybe there something I don't understand, when I want to download Spotlight program, I go to the download section and there I find  two spotlight options and all do not have the full program that is mentioned -about 200MB- they only have files "versions" about 20MB each? looks more like a drivers ? I installed the latest version to enable cockpit lights to work and it did just fine.

Is there's something I am missing here? I apologize if it's mentioned somewhere and I didnt see it? 

Kindly help, thanks

Even the first version in V2 was only 27Mb in size. They are Fully functioning programs. Reason for versions is just to keep track of which update of the aircraft and sim works with which version and what has changed.

It is not fully compatible with V4.5 and has much trouble with PBR textures.  PMDG NGXu is a perfect example.

Do you have any other aircraft where FSLSpotlights doesn't work? What is the observed issue with PBR textures exactly?

Hello Koen,

PMDG need to fix the completely wrong MCP lighting but when they do and a few other little things the lighting will not need spotlights.

So I see no point in making one.

Well the lighting on the MCP is driving me mad, so I might make a MCP light set just for the MCP to fix the problem till PMDG fix it.
