No connection for add-on of TacPack
« on: April 16, 2015, 09:17:30 AM »
I have installed the add-on called TacPack from Vertical Reality Simulations with weapons for FSX.

 But now I cannot connect Plan-G. Plan-G is set to FSX Data and when I press connect on the Home page then Connect is grayed down as expected, but the map does not show my aircraft, and the map does not move even if Lock is set.

Is anyone on this forum using TacPack? How does it work for you?

Are you connecting with SimConnect or FSUIPC? Try the other one. Or try a different port - maybe TacPack is using the same port as Plan-G

I'd not heard of TacPack, but a quick glance at their web site shows it's not compatible with a number of multiplayer systems, which suggests that it blocks data transfer in some way.

I am connecting with FSUIPC. I will test with Simconnect and also changing port. Thank you for the suggestions! I will tell how it works out.

I have now tested with Simconnect, and it works! Thank you again for the quick solution!
