    Prepar3D V4 - The Easy (Safe) Way

    Hello Driver Is My Traffic working at all ? Or do you have the same Issue as Marky ? Just check your add-on.xml file is actually saved as an .xml file and not still as a Tex Document ? Insure you have this box Un-Ticked just like the Image shows below in File Explorer Options Un-Tick the Box and click Apply. You can access this location by typing File Explorer Options into your Windows search bar and clicking View at the Top Then go back and Insure your add-on.xml is this add-on.xml Maybe it says this add-on.xml.txt ? If so just remove the .txt at the end and Save it Then launch Prepar3D and test

    MyTraffic 6a for Prepar3D v3 & v4

    Hello I am only seeing this now If you are using the add-on.xml method you Do Not add an entry to your Scenery.cfg file or your Simobjects.cfg file ------------- First: Insure you have My Traffic 6 Installed to the location you are Inputing in your <Path> Do you have MyTraffic 6 Installed to your E Drive ? Did you Install this by default ? Or did you Create and Name a folder during the Install Process ? This is relevant because it will change the <Path> In your add-on.xml file. The <Path> name must be Inputted and spelt exactly as to where MyTraffic 6 is located on your computer Next: Are you sure your add-on.xml file is actually saved as an .xml file and not still as a Tex Document ? Insure you have this box Un-Ticked just like the below Images shows in File Explorer Options Un-Tick the Box and click Apply ---> https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4254/35000883950_2eed3aafbf_o.png Then go back and Insure your add-on.xml is this add-on.xml, Maybe it says this add-on.xml.txt ? If so just remove the .txt and Save it Let us know how you are getting on

Manually setting up your simobjects.cfg Installing MyTraffic 6 to the Default C Drive After you Install MyTaffic 6, The communicator "MyTraffic 6 Control Panel" will pop up, Close it we will not be using it.

The Entry Numbers Start at 0 and go down, If the Numbers are Not correct Prepar3D Will Not see your new [Entry] and MyTraffic 6 Will Not Launch Installing MyTraffic 6 to a Different Location Important Question: If you Installed MyTraffic 6 somewhere else as apposed to the Default location, did you Create a folder to Install MyTraffic 6 to ? What did you name this folder ? This is important because this extra folder extension will change the folder path= in your simobjects.cfg ! For Example: I am now Installing MyTraffic 6 and have decided to Install to my G Drive, I will Create and name a folder called MyTraffic6 and point the Installer to it, Note: Notice how i left No spaces when i named this folder ! You need to spell the Name of the folder you Created exactly the same including the spaces in your simobjects.cfg, If you are even one digit or space out MyTraffic 6 Will Not launch Not creating a folder to install to If you have Installed Mytraffic 6 to a Different location and Not the default Location, The MyTraffic 6 Installer will Automatically create a folder called MyTraffic Your simobjects.cfg Path will be Path=X:\MyTraffic\Aircraft You will have to change the Drive Letter to suit your Install location I left an X in my path, Change this X to suit your Install Drive letter [Entry.10] Title=MyTraffic Vehicles Path=X:\MyTraffic\Aircraft Required=False Active=True Note: You will know if your Simobjects.cfg is set up correctly if Prepar3D is taking longer to Launch to the Splash Screen * You will still need to add the MyTaffic folder to your Prepa3D Scenery Library and Turn Off Default Prepar3D Traffic ========================================================== ========================================================== ========================================================== (3) To Setup MyTraffic 6 Manually for Prepar3D V2 This is the very same procedure as Manually setting up for Prepar3D V3, Adding an Entry to your Simobjects.cfg + adding your the MyTraffic folder to your Prepar3D Scenery Library Setting up your Simobjects.cfg Manaully By Default you will have 8 Entry's in your Simobjects.cfg. If you have Installed MyTraffic 6 to the Default C Drive..... Your Entry will look like this [Entry.9] Path=C:\MyTraffic Professional\MyTraffic\Aircraft Go to ► Computer ► Local Disk (C:) ► ProgramData ► Lockheed Martin ► Prepar3D V2 Double Click on Simobjects.cfg to open If you have Installed MyTraffic 6 to the Default C Drive you can Copy and Paste the above Entry into your Simobjects.cfg When added to your Simobjects.cfg, it will look like this. This is a Default simobjects.cfg with 1 Add On Mytraffic 6 [Entry.0] Path=SimObjects\Airplanes [Entry.1] Path=SimObjects\Rotorcraft [Entry.2] Path=SimObjects\GroundVehicles [Entry.3] Path=SimObjects\Boats [Entry.4] Path=SimObjects\Animals [Entry.5] Path=SimObjects\Misc [Entry.6] Path=SimObjects\Submersible [Entry.7] Path=SimObjects\Weapons [Entry.8] Path=SimObjects\Countermeasures [Entry.9] Path=C:\MyTraffic Professional\MyTraffic\Aircraft Note: You will still have to add your MyTaffic folder to your Prepa3D Scenery Library and Turn Off Default Prepar3D Traffic. ( See above Instructions to do this) ============================================================ ============================================================ ============================================================ (4) Possible CDT'S Crash To Desktop when using MyTraffic 6 Some users are reporting NTDLL.LL crashes when using MyTraffic 6.
