What is it?
ProFlight 2000 Emulator (PFE)
provides you with the means to use one of the all time
favourite Flight Simulator ATC programs with FS2004 or FSX. Namely
Yes, that's right, despite the fact
that neither of these versions of Flight Simulator support Adventures PFE runs
as a standalone program alongside these newer editions of Flight
Simulator to emulate the adventure engine.
How does it achieve this?
Using our own bespoke APLC32 compiler PFE
produces an almost identical flight for you as you would have
experienced using ProFlight 2000 in FS2000. We say almost identical because
during the development of PFE we did discover (and fix)
a few bugs in the way ProFlight 2000 handled various flight scenarios.
We also added a lot of new and exciting features plus devoted a lot of
time on the approach vectoring functionality... but more on these new
Written in Visual Basic and VB.NET
PFE does not actually produce flight simulator
adventures. It does, however, utilise the flight plan data produced by
ProFlight 2000 and of course those much loved 40+ regional voice sets.
Going forward we plan to add even more
new features to enhance your enjoyment of ProFlight 2000 further.
PFE is available in
two Editions. PFE Standard Edition and PFE
Edition provides everything you need to enjoy ProFlight 2000
but without an actual copy of the ProFlight program. So
to use PFE you must already have an original copy of
ProFlight 2000. Prior to purchasing PFE Standard Edition
it would be advisable to check you can (a) find your copy of
ProFlight 2000 and (b) that the CD is still in good condition and can be
installed. If not you will need to purchase the Deluxe Edition
PFE Deluxe includes
everything you need to enjoy ProFlight 2000 including a
full working copy of the original ProFlight 2000 program (licensed
to us for distribution with PFE by the original publisher and developers
of ProFlight). Installation of the PFE Deluxe Edition is
much easier too as it is just a one step installation process whereas
PFE Standard Edition requires a three stage process.
To use PFE Standard Edition
you must have an original copy of ProFlight 2000,
which must be installed correctly as described in the
Installation section of the User Guide.
To use PFE Deluxe Edition you
have everything you need in one easy installation pack.
As mentioned earlier PFE
basically uses the flight plan data generated by ProFlight 2000 and the
original localised voice sets too. For you, dear user, it will be just
like running a ProFlight 2000 adventure but with the most recent Flight
