  3. Hi Captains! The 23rd, just before Christmas, we will release our latest build for MSFS2020! In addition to some bug fixes (see the full changelog below), I'm happy to announce that the differences with the P3D version are getting fewer and fewer!

  5. Hi all, just to inform you that due to an update of our hosting provider, in the next weeks our website won't be reachable. During the process we are working on a new, updated website. All other services have already been migrated (forums, support ticket system, product activation servers) and work as usual. Thanks for your understanding! Leonardo SH
  6. Hi Captains, It's been a long time since our latest official news, after the summer break we were busy developing our next Maddog version for MSFS2020, which mostly took us long time to build a "bridge" application needed to overcome some simulator limits (MSFS2020 as you know is a sandboxed environment), thus allowing us to bring back many of the missing features from the P3D version. It's not our habit to make announcements without being sure of the result and this time the whole process has been particularly painful, but the good news is we’re nearing the end of the beta testing phase and we expect to release it in the next couple of weeks. Here is a list of features in the upcoming release: - added tray application ‘MDClient' to overcome limitation of the sandboxed environment; - added back all missing ACARS pages; - added back wx clients for METAR/ATIS (VATSIM/IVAO) and CPDLC; - added back 'printing' of ACARS message to Pushover app; - added automatic retrieval of latest OFP from SimBrief; - full GSX Pro integration. All the documentation has been updated as well, and there are also many improvements and bug fixes (performance, fms, autoland, etc). Now that we have managed to "get out of the sandbox", in the near future we plan to add the additional missing pieces of the Maddog (i.e. the 83-88) and development can resume at the normal pace our customers are used to. Thank you all for your patience!
  7. Hi captains, we've just uploaded latest full installers (2.2b838) for Prepar3D v4 and v5 to SimMarket, you can grab them in your orders page. We have have included the new installer software that we are using for the MSFS2020 version (which allows for a easier updating process), there are various bugfixes and a finally we have a new Simbrief integration to automatically download your latest OFP - without the need to download and import it via load manager and/or the EFB. Please read carefully the updated documents! Thanks everybody for the continuous support shown and interest in the Maddog X series!
  8. Hi Captains, I'm glad to inform you that we have just uploaded our latest MSFS2020 build (1.0b95) to SimMarket: you will find the installer inside Your Downloads in your SimMarket account! Just download the new installer and run it, the product will be automatically updated keeping your settings. This new version is free for all customers and brings fixes for a number of reported issues (see the changelog below). A few words about development: we are progressively implementing all the original functions present in Fly the Maddog X for Prepar3D, this is a bit slow step because implies finding alternative methods to achieve the same result with a different SDK, while the simulator continues to evolve. As for Prepar3D, shortly there will be new installers to port some fix and imrpovements to the code from MSFS2020 and implement the new installer software which is way better and allows easier updates. Happy landings! CHANGELOG: >>>>[FIXED] - fixed issue that freezed the EFB when arriving at the gate; - fixed nose gear door not remining sligtly open when gear down; - fixed issue in FMS that could cause missing/wrong constraint when adding arrival procedures; - fixed FMS button animation working only if FMS powered; - fixed rain sound still audible in cloudly weather but with no visible rain drop in the windshield; - fixed issue when importing PFPX OFPs in EFB SYSTEMS - allowed engines to start even if fuel pumps off (as in real aircraft); - manual trim will no more disconnect AP if LM option 'Autopilot disconnects when flight controls are moved manually' is unchecked; LOAD MANAGER - fixed issue in axes calibration, where sensitivity settings were inverted; DOCUMENTATION - fixed wrong page numbering in User Manual, Quick Guide and EFB Manual; - updated User Manual; OTHER - added compatibility with VA acars apps; - added properly formatted popups for CM1/CM2 PFD/ND (AltGr + left click to open).

  10. Hi Captains, first of all I'd like to thank the whole community for the overwhelming response to the release of the Maddog for MSFS2020! I wanted to inform you that we are aware of the difficulties that some users are experiencing with the registration to the forums: ours is a small company, and in order to guarantee an adequate level of assistance to our customers, given the levels of piracy that plague the flight simulation world, we must be sure that our efforts are just for the real buyers. Verification to register to the forums is automated, but in some cases we need manual intervention, and that can take a bit of time. The fastest way to request assistance, if not yet approved on the forums, is the ticketing service: https://www.flythemaddog.com/hesk/index.php For those who contacted us for other reasons, even just to say thank you, I ask for a little patience because our philosophy, at Leonardo SH, is to answer everyone... but this could happen with a little delay: please be patient! We are aware of some issues reported, and we are already working to solve them; instead, some reports that we receive derive from the lack of knowledge of such a complex machine or the integration with the new simulator: I invite you to read all the documentation included with the product, which contains many of the answers to the most frequently asked questions. Thanks again and blue skies!
  11. Hello captains, while we're giving latest refinements to the final build before release, I want to give you some more information. >> The release is set for tomorrow at 12:00 CET (Central European Time). >> To reduce download size, only our default Leonardo SH livery is included with the installer. >> The installer is 313.1 Mb in size. >> 16 available repaints at the moment (library will continue growing): Alaska Airlines OC: N931AS - Alitalia: I-DAVD - American Airlines: N9405T - Austrian Airlines OC: OE-LDV - Austrian Airlines: OE-LDP - Austrian Airlines: OE-LMB 'magic' scheme - Aviaco: EC-FLN - Delta Airlines OC: N995DL - Delta NC: N911DE - Iberia: EC-FOZ - InselAir: PJ-MDE - Meridiana: I-SMER - Scandinavian Airlines 'blue' scheme: LN-RMD - Scandinavian NC: OY-KHG - Spanair: EC-HFP - USAir: N811US IMPORTANT: Full access to the forum is restricted to registered customers only. To get full access you must register an account with the same email address used for your purchase, after having succesfully installed and activated your product. Accounts created with different email are automatically discarded. >> We have already published the master MSFS2020 paintkit which also includes instructions on how to port P3D repaints to MSFS. >> Fly the Maddog X AIRAC database is supported in Navigraph Navdata Center. >> AviaCDU is ready to support Fly the Maddog X for MSFS2020, and will be available for those who like to use the FMS with external devices! >> There will also be a FS2Crew version to fully support the MSFS2020 release! >> Fly the Maddog X works perfectly in SU9, and since the beta stages the software passed almost all SU without major issues: 99% of our coding is completely custom made. >> The first time you load the Maddog in MSFS2020, the simulator will compile the aircraft and all needed dependencies: this process is normal and unavoidable, and takes about 10/20 minutes, depending on your hardware. On next launch, the loading times will be back to normal. >> Although the software has been tested for months (we are confident in the quality of the product), it hasn't been possible to cover all the different specific combinations of software and hardware: we are aware that initially there will be bug and error reports, but with our experience and skills we are at your complete disposal to improve the product and solve issues, as we have done since the launch of the very first Maddog version to today.
  12. Hi captains, we've just uploaded latest full installers (2.1b833) for Prepar3D v4 and v5 to SimMarket, you can grab them in your orders page. Please read carefully the included installation guide before uninstalling the old version if you want to save your repaints, settings and saved routes! This new build, after the open beta cycle and thanks to your feedback, includes new code optimizations and fixing which derive directly from the MSFS development. Don't worry, the new MSFS version will coexist flawlessly with the P3D one, everything has been designed with interoperability in mind! Speaking of Prepar3D: our plans are to continue supporting the platform and share any new feature we may introduce in the future across the two simulators (if the relative SDK supports it); the first thing will be for sure the new passenger cabin made for the MSFS2020 edition, that will be merged to the Prepar3D model and offered free of charge as additional option (to give you the choice if you are not interested in). Thanks everybody for the continuous support shown and interest in the Maddog series which, in the span of more than 20 years, has evolved to levels unthinkable at the time! 2.1b833 full installer changelog 64bit edition - P3D >>>>[FIXED] *AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS* - fixed issue with missing font in overhead press panel when Maddog not installed in default folder; - fixed CTD when opening EFB Electronic Flight Folder app without any OFP available; - improved flare PID during autoland; - improved egpws terrain display fps performances; - other minor bug fixes and improvements.
