Majestic Dash 8 Q400 v1.008 Update Out Now!

 http://airdailyx.blogspot.com/2013/12/majestic-dash-8-q400-v1008-update-out.html
FSX/P3D/P3Dv2. Majestic Software have just released v1.008 of their 2013 masterpiece, the Dash 8 Q400.  I've searched through their forums, and there doesn't seem to be an official announcement just yet, but I can tell you that the update is already available through Simmarket. The v1.008 installer is a complete replacement for all previous versions, so you will need to remove your existing Q400 installation before installing this new one.

This new v1.008 weighs in at roughly 100 MB more than v1.007, and still seems to default to the FSX folder, though you can easily point the installer to the Prepar3D v2 folder instead. I've seen that there is a new SpecialFeatures.pdf document included and the sample flights and scripts appear new and/or updated.

For those struggling to get this turboprop airliner to work in Prepar3D v2, there are some useful tips on their Facebook page.


The news section on their website is in the process of being updated and will very shortly have a full list of what's new in v1.008. You can find the news section by following the link below:

Unfortunately I get a FSX CTD when loading a flight with the Dash.

Are you trying to load a flight that was created with v1.007? There may be parameters that have changed with v1.008 that might be causing this if that's what you're doing.

No, I'm loading a freeflight. The sim loads the aircraft and after a few seconds I get the error message "the sim has stopped working". I thought it was ActiveSkyNext, but I have no problem when using the AXE for example. Never had any problems with the Dash before.
