Title: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: tsGucci on May 24, 2017, 09:14:29 AM
Dear Captains!


You may have learnt that yesterday Lockheed Martin announced a major update of Prepar3D called v4. The major difference to the previous version will be that it will support the 64 bit architecture opening new dimensions in the quality and capability of the simulator. See here: http://www.prepar3d.com/news/2017/05/114164/
Our current LHBP scenery is created in 32 bit environment therefore it is not compatible with the - future - v4. The other sceneries compatibility is unknown.
We do know that many of you are well informed about this and soon or later (most probably sooner) you would knock at our door asking when it would be available. For this reason we issue our statement, preventing some unnecessary flames  ;) . To answer the question:

Yes we do intend to release LHBP for P3Dv4.

BUT:
Currently the v4 is not released yet. We purchase it as soon as it is available.
We do not know what other changes will be incorporated in v4, the SDK will be available later.
We do not know what structural changes will be done (place of installation, registry entries, dll.xml, simconnect.xml etc.) which may result that we also need a major change in the installer and in the activator. We do hope LM keeps the same structure as in the previous versions.
We do not know what happens with those objects which are not controlled with the dll like photoground and things like that.
To make our life even more difficult in the recent months we started to completely rebuild our dll to be able to handle multiple airports in one dll basically we did not want to release Rijeka and the later sceneries with a separate dll's. This is to avoid some hassle with the dll activation in a very few cases.

Therefore:
Considering all the uncertain points and risks it would be unwise from us to announce any schedule for the release of the 64 bit dll.
We will keep you posted in this forum about our progress.

We thank you for your patient.

Happy landings!

Some update regarding the issue:


We purchased the P3D and looked its structure. For some reason the registry entries which were working before cannot be read but we found an alternative. The installer itself has been modified it is working fine. The configurator (which edits the scenery.cfg and the dll.xml and such) has been also modified and working also fine.
However we do have some trouble with the product activator. It finds p3d4 now but cannot place the dll into the Modules folder. It must do something with authorizations in Win10 for 64bit program files folder.
The DLL conversion is still due.

Well, V4 has got lot of new fuatures, and i see their structure protects a lot what htey call the "V4 Core" folder.    I see that sceneries and even aircrafts are encourage to be installe outside the sim, but after several reinstalls i had to perform, well, i see the benefits.

Good luck with the update, keep the good work on going -  ;)

Glad to know that you guys are actively looking into it and that LHBP will be available for v4 in the future. I hope you can also take a look at some of the new features (dynamic lights, for example) and incorporate those new techniques into your products.

Good luck and please keep us in the loop as often as possible.

I can't bring myself to use default Budapest in P3Dv4. Hope this gets updated soon. Meanwhile I'm off to LHBP for real this week end!

Post by: karank on August 04, 2017, 09:29:11 AM
It is getting increasingly difficult to check on LHBP compatibility with P3Dv4. Now, with the Aerosoft/DA CRJ out, Budapest would make for some great pairings from Munich using the Lufthansa regional paints. Really wish we could get some sort of update on where this scenery stands with regards to v4.
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: tsGucci on August 04, 2017, 13:35:29 PM
Dear all,


Thank you for your patience. Here is a beta version for P3D v4. You can download the installer with Build 11 which supports the P3D v4 installation (you can choose it in the options).

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3PRo0hefj60d25MT1hpZjZ5QmM/view?usp=sharing

But! The installer so far copies the old 32 bit dll into the Modules folder.  You have to copy the dll from this post's attachment. There is two dll you can try both.
1. You copy the _ucs2 or _utf8 dll into the Modules folder
2. Delete or rename the LHBP_objectPlacer.dll (if any) like LHBP_objectplacer.bak
3. Rename the _ucs2 or utf8 dll as LHBP_objectPlacer.dll (capitals and characters must much exactly!)
4. P3D starts select Yes when asked if you trust in the dll.

Please let us know your feedback!

THanks

I installed the airport, also copied and renamed the dll in the module folder but the buildings do not appear. The problem comes with activation. When I try to activate it says: "303 - Can not download the file"
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: chasordod on August 05, 2017, 10:51:42 AM
Thanks for sharing this beta version of LHBP for P3Dv4.

I, too, have installed into P3Dv4 and tried both renamed versions of the object placer dll file. I have the same problem as in the post above. I get ground detail, autogen and traffic, but no objects displayed. I also get the same error message at activation.

It appears that scenery and texture files are correctly installed, scenery.cfg has been correctly updated and the exe.dll has an appropriate entry to run LHBP_objectPlacer.dll from the simulators module folder.

I would add that at this time I have both P3Dv3.4 and P3Dv4 installed on my system. My Simmarket purchase of LHBP is still running perfectly on P3Dv3.4. This is also v3 of LHBP, but an earlier build, of course.

Is there anything else I can try?
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: kityatyi on August 06, 2017, 22:23:26 PM
Exactly the same experience then what the above posts describe. Installation went smooth but at the end the I also received the 303 Error code. I had no LHBP_objectPlacer.dll in my Modules folder so I went ahead and copied over one of the two attached modules, renamed to LHBP_objectPlacer.dll and tested - no buildings. Then I tried the other module too, same result, no buildings.
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: tsGucci on August 06, 2017, 23:49:01 PM
Thanks for the feedback. We will have a look.

If you use P3D v3 or v2 or FSX without a problem you could do the following:

Open the regedit, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\LHSimulations\LHBP,
Copy the key from RegP3D3 or RegP3D2 or Reg and paste it to RegP3D4. Than try the dll.
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: almostatys on August 07, 2017, 15:53:55 PM
I tried copy key from RegP3Dv3 to RegP3Dv4, but I don't have buildings.
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: Miksu1977 on August 07, 2017, 20:25:41 PM
No buildings here either after copying reg key from P3DV3 into P3DV4. Hope you find some solution for this problem  :)

I just wanted to say thanks... 8)

Not installed yet since i see some adjustments needed.  But thanks for hard work...

Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: chasordod on August 09, 2017, 10:51:47 AM
I have tried the registry key change, also, but still have no buildings showing.

One further point I meant to raise is that I get no request from P3D to approve running of the object placer dll. It's almost as though this dll is never asked to run. I have three other addons listed in exe.dll which all work correctly.

Post by: komaromiB on August 09, 2017, 22:01:02 PM
Can't wait to use my LHBP scenery again!!! Thank you so much for your attempts!

You might add some files to the Prepar3D v4 Add-Ons folder (located in documents) to get it working with buildings! Loads of 3rd party softwares follow that way!
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: tsGucci on August 09, 2017, 22:12:04 PM
Could you please all who tried the beta dll's do some logs for us and send us to info@lhsimulations.com

To see how to do it follow the first video:
http://lhsimulations.com/forum/index.php?topic=436.0

We appreciate the help!
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: Miksu1977 on August 09, 2017, 22:59:00 PM
Well i tried what you asked and removed the / before service but the scenery configurator doesn't even give option to save anything.
Instead it gives an error when i push test button, no ini file found and P3D4 reg:
I have checked that regkey exists in registry for P3DV3 and for P3DV4. P3DV3 LHBP works fine.
Also i've used all my activations so activator tells me that my serial is banned. So I can't test anything anymore...

Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: komaromiB on August 09, 2017, 23:01:09 PM
Same as mentioned above! However I could create some log files thanks to deleting the other slash "/" icon as well (under service)!
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: chasordod on August 10, 2017, 19:17:56 PM
Have tried to produce log following the method in the video for three different cases.

1. with unmodified ini file.

2. with "/" removed in front of "service"

3, with "/" removed in front of "logoption"

All three, through slightly different routes, ended up with an "ini file not found" and no log file. The third method produced an unhandled exception error along the way.

I have sent a more detailed email to your info address. I have returned the reg entry on my PC to that created by the P4 installer. Think I'll stop now in case I get banned, too!

Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: balint0715 on August 11, 2017, 17:18:11 PM
For me it doesn't even loads the dll into P3D, its in dll.xml but didn't asked if I allow it and doesn't load it into the sim.

I cannot save the log file as it doesnt offer me the option in the configurator
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: CYRUS on August 13, 2017, 16:09:57 PM
I have the same problem, everything goes fine, it's not just building. Even after modifying dll. The configurator says when testing that Prepar3D4 reg no :(
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: tsGucci on August 14, 2017, 21:45:42 PM
Thank you for your feedback!


I have found the bug in the activator. Attached you can find a new Activator. With this one you can do the logging.

Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: tsGucci on August 24, 2017, 23:16:35 PM
There is a new installer available (Build 12). Still Beta!

The Error 303 should be solved now. After the installation the LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll file should be downloaded into the Modules folder.

Unfortunately the dll still does not work with P3D v4 we still have to fix that. But at least the installation and activation should be flawless.

Either you install the Build 12 installer again (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3PRo0hefj60bTM1TUtiUllXQlU/view?usp=sharing) or simply overwrite with the attached dll the existing one in your Modules folder. Any feedback is welcome (positive and negative)!

Still not showing terminal, just tubes are visible.

So DLL isn't loading in P3D V4 for some reason even when it is clearly shown in P3D dll...

Hi,

still no Buildings

if i copy the LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll to my P3DV3\ Modul Folder and rename it to LHBP_objectPlacer.dll
and start P3DV3, the sim will be closed with an Error Message - this is normal because it is an 64-bit file.

But the point is, that the LHBP_objectPlacer.dll will load via dll.xml

If i start P3DV4 with the LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll, this dll will not load (tested with LoadedDllsView.exe)
The Entry in my dll.xml is correct.

Now i have copied the LHBP_objectPlacer.dll from my P3D\Modul-Folder to my P3DV4\Modul-Folder and renamed it to LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll

Started P3DV4 and thought P3DV4 will will closed with an Error Message - but nothing - no Error.

This LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll will not load also.

I don't understand why P3D will not load the LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll.

Best regards

Harald

I'm a little bit clueless what is going on here. For me Build 12 works like a charm.

Maybe in the recent installations there is mixing up something. My reccomandation to make a clean installation for LHBP.

Do the following:
1. Go to [Prepar3Dv4 folder]\Addon scenery and delete the LHS_LHBP_X folder
2. Go to [Prepar3Dv4 folder]\Modules folder and delete any file with LHBP_objectPlacer.......dll ! Leave no LHBP dll in the folder.

any content from <Launch.Addon> until </Launch.Addon> if LHBP_objectPlacer is there. If this is the only dll loaded in your dll.xml you can delete the whole dll.xml too or just rename it to dll.bak.
4. Launch REGEDIT and in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\LHSimulations\LHBP delete the RegP3D4 key. You can even delete the VerP3D4, InstDirectP3D4 and DateP3D4 if you want.

I'm a little bit clueless what is going on here. For me Build 12 works like a charm.

Maybe in the recent installations there is mixing up something. My reccomandation to make a clean installation for LHBP.

Do the following:
1. Go to [Prepar3Dv4 folder]\Addon scenery and delete the LHS_LHBP_X folder
2. Go to [Prepar3Dv4 folder]\Modules folder and delete any file with LHBP_objectPlacer.......dll ! Leave no LHBP dll in the folder.
3. Go to %appdata%\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 folder open the dll.xml and delete the
Code: [Select]
<Launch.Addon>
      <Name>LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll</Name>
      <Disabled>False</Disabled>
      <Path>Modules\LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll</Path>
      <Commandline></Commandline>
   </Launch.Addon>
any content from <Launch.Addon> until </Launch.Addon> if LHBP_objectPlacer is there. If this is the only dll loaded in your dll.xml you can delete the whole dll.xml too or just rename it to dll.bak.
4. Launch REGEDIT and in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\LHSimulations\LHBP delete the RegP3D4 key. You can even delete the VerP3D4, InstDirectP3D4 and DateP3D4 if you want.
5. Do the installation with the Build 12 file: "Budapest_LHBP_v13_FSX(SE)_P3D_Build12.exe" Download from here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3PRo0hefj60bTM1TUtiUllXQlU/view?usp=sharing

Thanks a lot!

Did all that and rebooted, installed using build12 and now it's even worse than before, even tubes aren't showing anymore :(

Hello,

I'd love to confirm tsGucci, but unfortunately the people are right. I am coming from a complete computer format and clean install of P3D v4.1 . Running the built 12 installer results in no buildings at the airport. I hope it can be fixed soon.

But if i start Prepar3D V4 for some reason, the LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll is not loaded.

No LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll is loaded i get no buildings- right?

I have updated the dll in P3Dv4.1 modules folder with the new one. Unfortunately, I still have no buildings showing. Just terrain, autogen, ground polys and Jetways as before.

A question on MS Visual C++ Distributables - I have installed the new Autumn update to my Windows 10 64bit installation and the installed versions of the distributables are now 14.0.24212 for X64 version and 14.0.24215 forX86 version.

The link you gave offers me older versions of these, namely, 14.0.24123 for X64, and X86. Could someone wiser than me advise if this is relevant? I am reluctant to go back to earlier versions.

So just to list what I did for those of you still having problems. I downloaded the latest version 12. I then downloaded the .dll file and copied over the old one in the module folder. I also launched P3D as admin. And for me it works. Previous to P3Dv4 I had this scenery for FSX not P3Dv3. No idea if that has any implications or not.

I also have the latest win10 fall update and the new dll doesn't solve the problem. When I try to install the .net libraries mentioned the system denies it as it says I have a later version already.
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: slait on October 21, 2017, 04:54:53 AM
Ok, looking at this some more. Latest logs now show the DLL is in fact loading properly which is a step in the right direction:

Code: [Select]
0.65593 DLL Loaded:  Path="Modules\LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll"  Version="1.5.0.9"
And the rest of the simconnect log looks clean. On to the other two logs, nothing is standing out in activator log, but the LHBP log seems to not know the scenery is active:

Code: [Select]
Logging open. Loglevel: 4
Dll loaded
Dll version: 1.5.0.9
Sim executable path: E:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Prepar3D.exe

VersionMajor:4
Minor:1
Build:7
Simulator: 6
---> Scenery not active in P3D v4 scenery.cfg <---
Log closed.

From the activator log it lists the following as the location of the scenery.cfg file, which does have the scenery entry listed:

Code: [Select]
CFGData root: C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\
I'm wondering if those it worked for if they are running something older than Windows 10? Is there something unique for Windows 10 in terms of paths or registry keys that is throwing off the DLL from finding the scenery?

Have tried the same as CYRUS this morning - removed scenery folder, objectplacer, registry entries, and removed the objectplacer entry in dll.xml.

Installed Build 12, which seemed to run perfectly, with success in configuration and activation.

Replaced the installed object placer with the 20th October linked version.

Still have no buildings and no Budapest entry in simulator addons menu.

For reference, this is with Windows 10 64bit, with Autumn update, and version 4.1 of P3D.

LHBP continues to work perfectly in P3Dv3.4. Would be interesting to know if anyone with the same version of Windows and P3Dv4.1 has LHBP working.

I am curious though, it doesn't seem like AI is parking at the main terminal gates 42-45. I can start my plane there just fine, but I've tried several different times of day and AI does not start there. They park all around the outskirt locations. Thoughts?

EDIT: A second question/thought related to the original problem. Looking at the encoding type of the scenery.cfg file after the installation of LHBP, it appears to have converted it from UCS-2 LE BOM to UTF8, drastically reducing it in size. All the entries seem to be there, but it is definitely different. Could the original UCS-2 encoding type prevent the dll from detecting that the scenery is installed?

Early Saturday afternoon I did a flight from BUD to FRA, the scenery still worked without any issues. So I decided the recreate the real world BAW870 later in the evening. Landed BUD past midnight local time, but to my big surprise, no buildings, only jetways...

It is very interesting, because less than 12 hours before, BUD was functioning properly. Is there any real time stuff at your servers that can add/remove/modify/amend this scenery? So back to where we were - it's not working again.

Post by: slait on October 22, 2017, 09:08:00 AM
I have a feeling this is related to the file encoding issue I mentioned above. I suspect when you install another scenery it modified the scenery.cfg file and reverts the encoding reintroducing the problem to LHBP. I'll test the theory in the morning.
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: kityatyi on October 22, 2017, 09:21:19 AM
So basically if I once again re-install the scenery, shall it work again?

EDIT: Nope. I ran the installer again, copy-pasted the newest LHBP_objectPlacer_ucs2.dll file into the Modules folder overwriting the existing one (just to be on the safe side) and then loaded up the sim. No buildings only jetways.

I am wondering though. If it did work yesterday, but installing a new scenery messed it up, then why it does not work after another reinstall?

Slait's theory might explain my not seeing buildings, despite what looked like a flawless installation.

After installing, I checked LHBP dll.xml entry, scenery folder, registry entries and object placer, and replaced the last of these, all before starting the simulator. I checked scenery library,which was also correct, after starting the simulator.

However, I have quite a few scenery packages, some of which use Lockheed Martin's "outside the simulator" method. A bug in P3D means this method can upset scenery ordering and generate a warning on closing the scenery library. Clicking "yes" on this has seemed to leave everything functioning up till now. But it will have rewritten scenery.cfg. If the theory is right, LHBP will have been disabled before I even looked at it.

I will look at posting logs, as requested.

So after a bit of luck and satisfaction, and today, after the PC is turned on, LHBP does not work again. Unlike the posts above, I did not install anything, add nothing, just turn on the PC today and I'm back without buildings.

As requested, activatorlog attached - I've edited out scenery entries between P3Dv4 default and the LHBP entry. It's a long list, and all are working as they should.

LHBP still refuses to display buildings.

Looking at the log, to my untutored eye, all that should have been found has been, and there is no sign of anything missing, unless it should have proceeded further after finding the correct LHBP scenery entry. Here's hoping you can spot something.

If you need a simconnect log, too, let me know.

Post by: slait on October 22, 2017, 21:18:37 PM
Ok, for me my previous theory around file encoding is confirmed on my system. For testing purposes I enabled logging for simconnect and the dll, then loaded the scenery as it was last night when it worked fine. This morning, still works fine. Then I loaded up the scenery.cfg file in this path: C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 in notepad ++ and noted that it is in UTF-8 encoding.

(https://i.imgur.com/rC56jgQ.jpg)

Knowing that P3Dv4 likes UCS-2 LE BOM encoding, and any changes in the sim rewrites in this format, I changed the scenery.cfg file to this encoding type. No other changes. As you can see, this was the encoding type before LHBP installed itself:

(https://i.imgur.com/O2t12aa.jpg)

Note the size difference between encoding types for the same file content:

(https://i.imgur.com/EaaXtM3.jpg)

I loaded up the sim and sure enough, no buildings. I exited the sim, changed the encoding back to UTF-8 and saved the file, no other changes. Loaded the sim and all buildings were back, loaded normally.

Im attatching the log files for all three scenarios, working, broken, then fixed again for your reference. In particular you will note that in the scenario where it is broken the error in the LHBP_Log file it says "Scenery not active in P3D v4 scenery.cfg". Seems to be related to the dll's inability to ready and write in UCS-2 LE BOM encoding.
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: MagyarMatt on October 22, 2017, 21:26:19 PM
It would me sense that scenery changes are causing it to dissapear again. I've been playing round with my Orbx light which caused P3D to re compile some files when I loaded it up. Seems more than a coincidence that since doing that my LHBP buildings suddenly vanish again!

Post by: Kai-Uwe Weiß on October 23, 2017, 07:47:43 AM
Wow, I set the code to UTF8 and now the buildings are there!
But it would be better if the file would be working coding in UTF16 too. Maybe the objectplacer-dll can be modified to recognize it in UTF16?

Post by: kityatyi on October 23, 2017, 10:01:36 AM
It IS working now! Changing to UTF-8 does the trick.

Slait - you should have a street named after you that is for sure. You solved in a few hours what the developers could not solve in months! Slait for president, Slait for president! :-P

Now the question is, why aren't there proper autumn textures, why are the trees summer green in late October? Something's with the seasons here.

And also, let's now hope for a proper fix for all these and maybe to compensate for all the cancelled flights:

- moving jetways
- general airport update as there is a lot going on in BUD these days, the scenery is quite outdated now

:-)

Thanks from me, too, Slait.

Just recoding scenery.cfg to UTF-8 has me seeing LHBP in P3Dv4.1 for the first time.

Will look forward to fix for scenery to recognise Lockheed Martin's preferred coding for config files.

Glad to be of service.

I personally would like to thank the developer(s) for their commitment to bringing this scenery to life in P3Dv4. It was a hole that I'm glad it's being filled again, so thank you for that.

I would like if they, or someone else with more knowledge of AFCAD files could look at and comment on why my AI does not want to park at Gates 42-45. They park all around the perimeter of the airport, but not at the terminal. Are the parking codes wrong? Are the sizes of the spots wrong? Something seems to be going in there.

I'm sure they are working on it folks. The issue was just reported, let's give them time to work on it.
Title: Re: Prepar3D v4 - 64 bit architecture
Post by: tsGucci on October 23, 2017, 21:00:49 PM
Ok, for me my previous theory around file encoding is confirmed on my system. For testing purposes I enabled logging for simconnect and the dll, then loaded the scenery as it was last night when it worked fine. This morning, still works fine. Then I loaded up the scenery.cfg file in this path: C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 in notepad ++ and noted that it is in UTF-8 encoding.

(https://i.imgur.com/rC56jgQ.jpg)

Knowing that P3Dv4 likes UCS-2 LE BOM encoding, and any changes in the sim rewrites in this format, I changed the scenery.cfg file to this encoding type. No other changes. As you can see, this was the encoding type before LHBP installed itself:

(https://i.imgur.com/O2t12aa.jpg)

Note the size difference between encoding types for the same file content:

(https://i.imgur.com/EaaXtM3.jpg)

I loaded up the sim and sure enough, no buildings. I exited the sim, changed the encoding back to UTF-8 and saved the file, no other changes. Loaded the sim and all buildings were back, loaded normally.

Im attatching the log files for all three scenarios, working, broken, then fixed again for your reference. In particular you will note that in the scenario where it is broken the error in the LHBP_Log file it says "Scenery not active in P3D v4 scenery.cfg". Seems to be related to the dll's inability to ready and write in UCS-2 LE BOM encoding.

WOW! This is a nice catch! We really appreciate your help! Basicaly you have saved us twice!
Our gratitude will not be missed!

Basically the sceneryConfigurator rewrites the scenery.cfg into ISO-8859-2 format (which is similar to UTF-8) since very long time. But we never imagined that Prepar3D v4 uses a different format.

Code: [Select]
Using sw As New IO.StreamWriter(CFGDataRoot & "scenery.cfg", False, System.Text.Encoding.GetEncoding("iso-8859-2"))
            For i = 0 To sceneryCFGreader.Length - 1
                sw.WriteLine(sceneryCFGreader(i))
            Next
        End Using

We will modify the DLL asap.

Thanks a lot again!

Dear All!


The installer Build 13 was recently uploaded to the webshop (some of you might realised it). Regarding Prepar3D v4 it is still to be considered as a BETA version!

Here is the GD link:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3PRo0hefj60ZXg4VDVvUHZRSWs/view?usp=sharing

IMPORTANT!

The dll name has changed to LHBP_objectPlacer64.dll (uploaded to the server)! If you have ever messed with previous dll's like _ucs and such these must be deleted from the Modules folder, it would be nice if you could alse erase them from the dll.xml!

As slait discovered Build13 works fine after installation BUT if you change anything in the scenery library the scenery.cfg is turned into a characterset which is not readable for the dll so the scenery will not work again. We need to fix this. For the time being you can change manually the characterset with notepad++ to UTF-8 or you wait for the update.

For those ones who are getting Error 302 please be patient, I'll unlock your codes!

I saw someone mention a couple of posts up how the vegetation doesn't match the time of year with all green trees regardless of season for example. Is there any change that could/will be addressed in this version or would that have to wait for an upcoming version of Budapest if there will be one?

I also remember having an issue with this scenery where having road traffic enabled in the simulator would cause rather severe stutters/pauses every 10 seconds or so where the only way to avoid that was to disable all road traffic. Is this still an issue in P3Dv4.1?

Basically it is ready. FOr the 95% of the users it is working without a problem. Some users have some activation problem but we are trying to find that bug too.

You can download the file from the webshop directly or from this GD link:

No manual copy/overwrite step is needed. The latest 64 bit dll is uploaded to the server (1.5.1.0).

I can already confirm it's working great and I must say this scenery even when it's rather old still is an amazing scenery also in P3Dv4. Just all small things like the 3D grass that actually looks like grass is something many other developers could learn from.

As for the LHBP_objectPlacer64.dll file I downloaded this one separately from this thread and just overwrote the one already in there after the installation using the installer called Budapest_LHBP_v13_FSX_SE_P3D_Build13.exe.

The dll file I downloaded is version 1.5.1.0 and stupid enough I didn't even check what version this file was after installation before overwriting. When you say no overwriting is needed are you then saying this 1.5.1.0 version of the dll is already included in the version of the installer I was using?

Good to know should I install this scenery again so I know if I need this separate dll or not.

We are rolling out the latest installer opening Prepar3D v4 for all customers.
A new installer is uploaded with name Build 14.

There are minor changes:
- The scenery configurator now saves the scenery.cfg in UCS-2 format (which is expected by Prepar3D v4 only)
- The DLL is now updated to 1.5.1.1 : Validity of the dll was extended

If your Prepar3D v4 scenery is working fine than you do not have to do anything.
The failed activation anomaly is still present at some users we are working on that to find the root cause. Unfortunately on this problem the Build 14 will also not help.

I would like to thank to all of you the support in the recent months! Without you we could not have finished this project!

Happy landings!

We are rolling out the latest installer opening Prepar3D v4 for all customers.
A new installer is uploaded with name Build 14.

That's awesome! Can we expect Build 14 linked in the forum here or shall we wait for it to be uploaded to other shops like SimMarket?

Just an update to my previous post and to address LHS Facebook post, SimMarket still hasn't changed the link to Build14. I only see Build13 in my account.

That is correct. Build 13 is sufficient for the time being as well.

Hello,

I have installed Budapest_LHBP_v13_FSX_SE_P3D_Build13 and updated LHSproductact (because error 302 or so) and LHBP_objectPlacer64. I don't have any error messages, but I still can't see any buildings. I have a hunch the .dll isn't loaded. Should I see the module in the add-on menu of P3D? Because I don't.

Also, after installing, I suddenly have to have admin rights to change the scenery.cfg. Does the product activator change the access rights?

Kinds regards,

Dimitrios

Edit: Okay, I found the FAQs, which state I should have an entry in the menu. I have the following in the dll.xml:

Code: [Select]
<Launch.Addon>
    <Name>LHBP_objectPlacer64.dll</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>Modules\LHBP_objectPlacer64.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>

It seems to be ok. The .dll is there, in the "Modules" subfolder. No entry in the menu.

To give all the information: I've moved the folders and files

Addon Scenery
Scenery
SimObjects
Uninstall_LHBP_P3D4.exe

that your installer writes out of the P3D main folder and activated the scenery (scenery, alt correction, sim objects) via the xml-method with the P34 V4 Addon Organizer. I do this with all my sceneries.
