CH Products, USB controllers do not have specific drivers available for download. All of our USB controllers utilize the Microsoft HID drivers that have been built into every version of Microsoft Windows since Windows 98.

To install any of our USB controllers, simply turn on your PC and plug in the individual controllers one at a time.

*Microsoft Windows may ask for the CD ROM that accompanies your version on the operating system.

GAME PORT Gameport Device Drivers are located online at http://www.chproducts.com/retail/tech_chanlg.html

Austin Meyer recommended to install with the installer on-line you find on our site but also by being sure you have the latest version here (REQUIRED FOR MAC):

http://www.x-plane.com/downloads/dvd-installation/



1. Insert Disc 1 into your DVD-ROM drive and wait it to spin up.
2. In Windows, if the operating system does not launch the X-Plane installer automatically, then click the Start menu, then My Computer. Double click on the XPLANE10 DVD, then Installer_Windows.exe. Mac users must use the on-line installer to install X-Plane 10. (Boostair don't know why...?!)
3. When the installer window appears, click Continue.
4. By default X~Plane will install to the Desktop, though it can be installed elsewhere. Make sure to note where you install it. For the purposes of this guide, we will assume it is installed to the Desktop. Click Continue,
5. Accept tho user agreement and click Continue.
6. On the next screen, select the scenery you would like to install. When you're finished selecting scenery, click Continue.
7. The installer will begin displaying its progress. Note that installation may take anywhere from thirty to sixty minutes per disc, and that only one X-Plane disc can be in the system at once (the installer won't recognize a disc placed in a second DVD-ROM). Installing the COMPLETE scenery package will consume about 75 GB of hard drive space and will take between five and six hours to install. You can add or remove scenery at any point in the future by inserting Disc 1 and re-running the installer. When the installer comes up saying "You already have X-Plane 10 installed on this computer", click the Add or Remove Scenery Button and proceed with step 4 above.

To see the above directions with screen shots:

Keep your copy of X-Plane 10 up to date


If you cannot start up X-Plane 10 or you have a partial or broken install, or you simply want the latest version (which is recommended!) you can download the updater below and run it to update to the latest version! Find the update installer here:

1. Insert the first X-Plane DVD into your DVD-ROM drive and wait for it to spin up.
2. In Windows, if the operating system does not launch the X-Plane installer automatically, click the Start menu, then My Computer. Double click on the XPLANE9 DVD (as shown in the screenshot below), then Installer_Windows.exe.
Mac users will need to double click on the X-Plane DVD icon on the desktop, then double click the Installer_Mac app to launch the installer.
3. When the installer window appears, click Continue.
4. By default X-Plane will install to the Desktop. Though it can be installed elsewhere, it is strongly recommended that it be placed on the Desktop so that it can be found in the future. For the purposes of this guide, we will assume it is installed there. Click Continue.
5. Accept the user agreement and click Continue once again.
6. Select the scenery you would like to install. Depending on the installer on your disc, either all of the world or none of it will be selected by default. An unselected tile will appear bleached in color, while a selected tile will have its full color. For reference, the image below has only North America selected.
If you are unsure what areas are currently selected, just click Select None to turn everything off. From there, select the individual tiles you would like to install by clicking on them. Additionally, you can click and drag to select large areas quickly.
Note that for regions where no scenery is installed, only oceans and airports will be visible. When you’re finished selecting scenery, click Continue to begin installing.
For the purposes of the Selecting a Location section later in this guide, be sure to select the two tiles that make up America’s West Coast, as we will be traveling to Los Angeles International Airport.
7. The installer will begin displaying its progress. When the installer prompts you to do so, remove the current disc and insert the next. Note that installation may take anywhere from thirty to sixty minutes per disc, and that only one X-Plane disc can be in the system at once (the installer won’t recognize a disc placed in a second DVD-ROM).
Installing the complete scenery package will consume about 75 GB of hard drive space and will take between five and six and a half hours to install.
Scenery can be added or removed at any point in the future by inserting Disc 1 and re-running the installer. When the X-System installer comes up saying "You already have X-Plane 9 installed on this computer,” click the Add or Remove Scenery button and proceed just like in step 4 above.

You need to start with the primary DVD (labeled X-Plane v8.x). Just load it and run the installer. This will install the X-Plane version on the DVD and the US scenery. Then load each other DVD in turn and run the installer to install that area of scenery. Each DVD covers a region of the earth, indicated by the picture on the DVD.

Just like other installer-based X-Plane versions, if you point the installer at an existing X-Plane folder it will upgrade the folder to version 8.xx and install the scenery. If you point it at an empty folder it will install a new copy of X-Plane 8.xx and the scenery.

Note!!

1. If you use a disc image to avoid having the DVD loaded while you run X-Plane, dismount the disc image before you install. The installer looks for a volume named XPLANE8; having two volumes of that name will confuse it. (Same thing applies to having your old X-Plane 8 DVD in a second DVD reader!)

2. Run the installer from the DVD. Do not use the installer you downloaded from X-Plane.com. The X-Plane.com installer is a network installer and only looks for X-Plane versions on the network. The installer on the DVD only installs the version (and scenery) on the DVD.

3. After you install the X-Plane 8.xx and scenery kit, the X-Plane folder is named X-Plane V8.xx. To avoid confusion you might want to change the name on the folder. Do this after you've installed all the scenery to avoid confusing the installer. Note that if you change the name, the folder name will no longer match the name recorded in the installer prefs. This means the next time you upgrade you'll have to select your destination folder explicitly.

As 8 double layer DVDs. (It's big. You're going to need 60GB of HD space to hold it all.)

You don't have to install all of it. It's organized by region - install as much or little as you want.

Yes! The global scenery files work with X-Plane Linux 8.20, but there is no Linux installer on the kit. Linux installers are available from the Linux download page. Note there are three different installers listed here.

* X-Plane-Net-Install.gz is the installer for network updates. You want this for the next X-Plane update, but not now.
* X-Plane-DVD-Install.gz is the installer for X-Plane and the US scenery from the first DVD.
* X-Plane-Scenery-Install.gz is the installer for the remaining scenery DVDs.

Not real likely, considering its size (56GB).

60 degrees north / 54 south is the area covered by the SRTM elevation data. The available elevation data for the rest of the world (Gtopo30) is of substantially poorer quality and incorporating it in the global scenery did not fit in the production schedule because of its different format.

Several differences. Real Scenery is a set of 3rd party payware that covers a couple of specific areas. The terrain textures are based on actual satellite or aerial photos of the area, so as long as you're high enough that the resolution isn't an issue, it will look just like the real thing. The descriptions don't say anything about 3D structures, so I can't comment on what it will look like at low altitude.

The Global Scenery is indeed global. (See above for exact coverage.) You can count on having every little island in the Caribbean, south Pacific, etc.

The global scenery is all generic, however. It uses land use data and highway databases to figure out what textures to use and where to put streets and what kind of buildings. The textures and buildings all come from a generic library (an extensive one!) and are not the actual ones. From any kind of distance any major city will look quite realistic because the land use data results in the right kind of buildings, but look up close and the buildings won't be the same as the real ones there.

The strong point about the global scenery (other than that it's truly global) is the buildings. Many photo scenery packages look great at 10,000 feet, but get low and they're worthless, because all you see is a flat surface painted with colored blobs. Get low in the global scenery and you'll be dodging detailed buildings. To understand what I'm talking about, see the screenshots at the Global scenery web page. Understand that the level of realism will vary. The quality of highway and land use data varies for different parts of the world, and I've seen some bogus land use just in the US.

Les scènes Alpes vol 1 ont été faire sur Windows. Le propriétaire de Mac aura la mauvaise surprise, une fois le dossier .rar décompressé par un utilitaire adhoc, de ne trouver que des carrés sur le .pdf du manuel.
Pour lire correctement le manuel sur un Mac, il vous faut lancer le programme Adobe Reader qui lira sans problème votre manuel.
