Numerous Issues since SP1D update

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Ive had a few issues since upgrading to service pack 1d,

 

i followed the instructions here http://forum.avsim.net/topic/463861-installing-fsx-and-fsxse-updates/ noting that for some reason it was allready activated when i opened FSX again.

 

Firstly, in my first flight i couldnt delete things from the flight plan, or save them, it said invalid string or key with just that on the screen until i presses init ref, so i reloaded the flight. Afterwards i managed to get all the way to taxiing, then the aicraft changed course and heading as the aircraft turned, in addition i could not change the values outside of +/- the random value it set (it was close to the actual heading) it seemed it couldnt leave the arc of the weather radar. 

 

I am using active sky next, Fs2crew and pro atc x, and havent had any issues as strange as this thus far until the upgrade. 

 

I retried without any addons and still had similar problems, so i checked the licence thing in the FMC and it shown my key etc. so im stummped as to what it could be. The aircraft also seems to be taking a larger load on the computer, with its effects quite noticible to performace, again i had none of these issues prior to update. 

 

Lastly, does PMDG change fsx.cfg AT ALL? would it change my custom values, as this could link to the performance problems

 

cheers

It should still be activated (what you're seeing is normal). That procedure you followed doesn't tell you to deactivate your license. The license would only be removed if you'd deleted your entire OS.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say here. Can you please be more specific, or include screenshots?

No. This is also mentioned in the intro manual.
