I've been working on getting FS2004 conversions to FSX format working using ModelConverterX. Thanks to some changes by Arno to this program, it has become feasible to do this. For the test subject I've used Greg Pepper's trusty DC-6B model.
I have uploaded a test model for people to try if they want to see if it is working in their sim. It seems to work fine in FSX.
Great work Tom. I used your instructions and converted my Manfred Jahn L-1649A Ver. 4.0 over to FSX. Those of use using p3D v4 will still have problems with sound and fuel dump gauges, as they are 32 bit, but the planes fly.
ModelConverterX is a great program. I look forward to future changes in upgrading these great CalClassic aircraft.

Thanks, grabbed them. For some reason my FSX (SP2) would not load the MDL files, so I Imported them into MCX and Exported them using my XtoMDL.exe program. Now they loaded just fine. Everything looks great except I don't have any slow or blurred props, just the still props (they are animated though).
Quite a long time I didn't come here, such news is always a good news Great work !
This makes me think: Would it be possible to convert all of the classic AI traffic models to the fsx format so they can finally work with P3D v4? This would be absolutely awesome !
I abandonned a bit (very sadly) the classic airliners as for development purposes I need to almost always permanently work on P3D, especially v4. As I was used to the incredible immersion of my classic FS9 with all the sceneries and ai traffic, I just can't stand anymore flying these old birds with 787 flying around

Although I swore I would never do this, I now have what I believe to be a working version 64 bit version of the old sound gauge that Ken Mitchell's panels typically use. If anyone wants to give it a try in P3Dv4, drop me an e-mail at contact at douglassdawson dot ca and I can flip it over to you.

Thanks! That was one thing I wasn't going to do (update all the panels to the new sound format) so this is really good news. Let us know when/if you release it and I'll include it in my packages (or provide a download link). I don't have P3D and so I can't test it though. Hope someone else takes you up on this.
