First off, I really appreciate this fantastic utility. The hard work to make this tool has helped me make some decent helicopter videos . . . one example is linked at the bottom of this message.
I have FSX Acceleration and am aware of the issue of the limitation of Play As AI when using helicopters. I followed the work-around instructions with multiple FSX Helicopters (base models and addons) and cannot get them to appear at all. But when I select a fixed wing aircraft to playback as ai, I can watch it appear in front of me like magic and execute the earlier recorded flight path. So I'm sure I'm doing something wrong during the work-around, adding "AI" to the files for the helicopters.
Actually, has anybody been able to Play AI as helicopters in FSX
with FSRecorder? Looks like all the success stories with this in FSRecorder are happening while playing FS9
. Any lucky FSX play-helo-as-ai chaps out there?
If you are able to successfully play helicopters as ai in FSX, would you mind copy / pasting that successful aircraft config file for the helicopter that worked for you and stating what fixed-wing .air file you substituted also in the folder?
Here's a YouTube video that was made thanks to the great FSRecorder. Make sure to watch it in "high quality":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkS5-bpJfoM
