LDS B767-300ER not working in FS9?

Recommended Posts

It has been quite a while since I flew it, but when I try my LVLD_B763 in FS9 the following occurs.

 

1. Start FS9 with the default FS9 Baron at my home airport KMYR.

2. Select the LDS 767.

3. Loads fine with the tips screen appearing.

4. Clicking on any option has results that take forever, (e.g. FMC toggle, OH toggle, switches, etc.)

    For example, if I try to bring up the FMC, it make take up to two minutes, then it appears.

5. Select another aircraft, and everything is back to normal again.

 

The only other thing that is a bit weird is that I normally choose to hide the task bar at the bottom of my screen. If I move my mouse curser to the bottom of the screen to see the task bar, all Icons appear normally. When I move the curser the taskbar disappears normally as it should, but a garbled bar remains on the bottom of the screen. Back to the bottom, and the taskbar reappears and closes when the curser is moved away, but the garbled bar remains. I then tried not hiding the task bar and never see the garble but strongly suspect it is hiding behind it. I then reduced my FS screen size and never saw the garbled bar again. However all delays remained making flight of this bird impossible. I have a screenshot showing the bar at the bottom, but AVSIM has changed so much that I am afraid I have not figured out how to attach it if that is still permitted. I thought there used to be a tutorial for those with a short memory, but I can't for the life of me find it now. I will post this on the flightsim forum as well hopefully being able to include the screenshot.

 

I deleted the plane along with all associated files and reinstalled it with the Flight One Wrapper and still get the same result. (Did this twice.)

 

This problem appears only in FS9. It flies beautifully in FSX with no sign of a problem.

 

Any ideas?

Why not ask Level-D official support?  You can reach it via the Flight1 support link on their home page.  As far as your problem goes, I have never seen it reported.  the 767 has run fine on my i7 x64 FS9 install for years.

Thanks D.J.

 

Yesterday before posting here, I tried to do what you recommended, but goofed up. I apparently looked at support instead of the forum and it said that I needed "Proof_of Purchase_lvld67,htm" out of my "C"\Flight One Software" folder. I have had the LDS 767's  both in FS9 and FSX for years, installed multiple times, but never have had that file in the Flight One Software folder although I do have my order no. and key from Flight One.. Choosing to delay trying to sort out a solution, I chose to post here.

 

Ironically, as you recommended, I was able to simply go to the LDS forum and post a copy of this thread just before making this reply. This is no biggie as the bird does fly just fine with no problems in FSX. I do wonder what has happened and what it does not like in FS9 now. I do use Smart Security (NOD32) for my firewall and antivirus which has a known problem for this aircraft in either FS9 or FSX. If not excluded, it will quarantine a dll. which shuts down FS when the LDS 767 is selected. However that dll has been excluded as per the LDS instructions and is no problem now.

 

Thanks for your help.

Edit: Are you flying the bird in FSX or FS9? I have no problem in FSX.

 

I may try to sort out how to contact support directly, The installation (Flight One Wrapper) does not install the "Proof" file that is required, nor do I know what they mean by "certificate number" assuming that is the same thing. Installation uses my key and credit number used for the purchase years ago for the Flight One Wrapper installation.

You can retrieve your certificate number using the support link at the Flight 1 website.  You need it to register for forum support.

Time will tell, but thanks to DSHUTT on the LDS 767 FS9 Forum, I think a solution may have been found.

 

I installed the 314.22 Video drivers and I believe that did the trick. Several flights have now been done with the LDS 767 with no problem. Apparently it did not like any of the other drivers I have in my archives or the 340.52 drivers that I have been using up to now. The latest drivers, the 347.25 drivers do not work with my dual video card setup. I loose the third and/or fourth monitors.

 

Happy flying:
