Orbx and X Plane 12


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Orbx products that are not available to install using Orbx Central do appear to work
in X Plane 12, although they will not have any of the X Plane 12 enhancements.

 

Here are four ways to load all of your Orbx products into X Plane 12.

 

Method 1.

To be used if you do not have X Plane 11 or any Orbx products installed.

 

Go to C:\Users\your name\AppData\Local.

There you will see x-plane_install_12.txt

Rename it to x-plane_install_11.txt

 

Open Orbx Central and it will recognise your X Plane 12 installation as X Plane 11.

You can then install any previously uninstalled Orbx products.

When you have finished, rename the text file back to x-plane_install_12.txt

 

Method 2.

To be used if you no longer have X Plane 11 installed.
It requires that you have installed your Orbx products into an Orbx Central Library.

 

Go to C:\Users\your name\AppData\Local.

There you will see x-plane_install_12.txt

Rename it to x-plane_install_11.txt

Open Orbx Central and it will recognise your X Plane 12 installation as X Plane 11.

Run Orbx Central\Settings\Help\Sync Simulator.

When you have finished, rename the text file back to x-plane_install_12.txt

 

Method 3.

To be used if you have both X Plane 11 and X Plane 12 installed.

It requires that you have installed your Orbx products into an Orbx Central Library.

 

You will see x-plane_install_11.txt, temporarily rename it to x-plane_install_11xx.txt.

Rename x-plane_install_12.txt to x-plane_install_11.txt

 

Open Orbx Central for X Plane 11 and run Sync Simulator.

Rename the two text files back to x-plane_install_11.txt and x-plane_install_12.txt

 

Method 4.

To be used if you installed all of your products into X Plane 11\Custom Scenery.

 

Copy or make links of all of the contents  of X Plane 11\Custom Scenery into X Plane 12\Custom Scenery

 

Note 1: this link appears to give the location of the x-plane_install_1x.txt file in OSX and Linux

Note 2: now that Orbx Central does install some products into X Plane 12, do not install both X plane 11

and X Plane 12 versions of the same product into X Plane 12.
