Thread: Tim Conrad Bulldog

  1. Unhappy Tim Conrad Bulldog

    Hi guys. I'm quite new at this. I've downloaded Tim Conrad's Bulldog T.1 in FS2004. No problem until I get to the FLY NOW stage and when pressed FS drops out altogether! I have checked everything I can think of but still the same problem!

    Help please. Thanks.

    If it was downloaded from the Library here, please list the filename and I will be happy to tryy it. Probably a sound gage forpanel click sounds eawas not put into your main FS2004 folder.

    It looks like there is no folder structure to the zip. So the files are scattered in the 'aircraft' folder. This is circa 2003. File name is 'bdog_mk1.zip', 7,275,085 bytes, 11-274-2003, 11000+ dnlds.

    That is the reason why one should extract files to a temp folder. The needed files are all there as far as ci can see. Just need to manually put files where they belong. So NEVER extract ANY zip file directly to any folder under FS9 main folder (scenery included). We can help. I am downloading it now.

    Update: Yep. Readme has this:

    'Installation:
    Make new Folder in your FS2004\Aircraft folder, label it SA_BULLDOG
    After downloading the zip, locate it, using your Computer Explorer, etc...'

    See pic for list of files you need to delete (or MOVE to 'SA_Bulldog' folder you made as per above). They are in the main 'Aircraft' folder so look there for these files. Still have to so 'README' to get it right. Good luck.

    Thank you.
    First, I apologize that my first post had so many spelling errors! (typing on a 7 inch Android pad ain't the best!) Now that I see this file was an auto-installer by Mr Grindel I would guess that the Gaugesound.dll is missing from your main FS2004 folder causing the immediate crash to desktop!

    I normally don't trust any auto-installer and will make it install first to a folder I create so I can see what's there. Then put stuff where it belongs.

    I think you should read the README file even before you extract the whole zip package. A simple 'left click' on that file, even before extracted, will bring it up in Notepad so you can read the installation instructions, which no doubt will tell you where to place the Gaugesound.dll. Different modelers will use different ways to do the same thing. It's up to you to judge, then decide, how to go about installing. We all had to learn the pitfalls inherent in installing zip files. Once you learn you 'go with the flow' and it will be a piece of cake.
