    I thank @bbuckley for this script. It is most welcome. I've already sent Keith the details and code to do differently with his new client but it seems it didn't make it through. For example the X-Plane PE client doens't need any third party tech and just uses the SDK. We properly interact with the X-Plane PE client (and the xSquawkbox client too) for TX/RX COM flags and the XPDR. They can do exactly the very same with P3D: the flight simulator SDK as already all that is needed just using SimConnect, or it is very easy to develop a 'module' instead publishing their own vars and commands (we do this for our GTN and GNS V2 isn't it?) I find this is unfortunate PE and all other such clients rely on FSUIPC for their 'public interface' at least because: They are dependent on a third party while all needed is already in the simulator SDK. No other vendor can use their interface unless they pay a FSUIPC fee and make themselves dependent on another 3rd party as well.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I am using a pop-up for the GTN but still no joy. Del

    I'm guessing that you did not restore the original shaders (including the shader effect files in ShadersHLSL) prior to updating P3D. I don't use Envshade, but I do use PTA, and I know I'm supposed to restore the original P3D shaders prior to a client update. I imagine it's the same with Envshade. See Poppet's post in this thread for a possible solution using a P3D repair installation: http://www.prepared3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=127028

    What's going on with REX?

    Now that is reaction to a building word not allowed storm! Keep calm and your heads up. Good luck. Love your work and would buy it again. And hear is how you build up a word not allowed storm. 😊 No offence, as I said it is different from real life conversations. Remember it is sunday and REX is working. I am guilty myself for that some times.
  9. My bad, stupid me.. I deleted the p3d cfg file so many times so that I forgot to change the line related to frame to average in it. So locked at 30fps it seems it keeps the fps at 31-32 fps (but still the average is fine). But when I changed for testing UIHardwareAcceleration=True to False, the in-game fps were up to 60 and not limited anymore.

    What's going on with REX?

    Just a small input from the other side... (and I have no connection to the REX team, beta testers, etc). Just completed 2 short flights using EF (textures from SF) and AS weather. I saw absolutely beautiful skies, cloud textures, shadows, etc (running EF in AUTO mode). I did NOT run SF program before these flights until I came here and noticed users reporting a "BETA CODE" requirement. I then opened the SF exe and observed this odd behavior also. I simply closed the SF program, then relaunched EF, AS and P3D. As EF does not require SF to be running, everything went completely normal and all looked good once again.
  11. Not news, but in one of the latest interviews Adam Breed said that "version 4 has a lot of life left in it". That feels like they are planning for more point releases than usual. I wouldn't be surprised to see a 4.8. Depends on their roadmap obviously, and how many resources are available. Unless there is a planned major change in technology, or a problem that makes such a change necessary, the only other reason to go to V5 would be that it would generate a new income stream (since all who upgrade have to pay again).

    The best traffic and ATC combo?

    I'm thoroughly enjoying flying with PSXseeconTraffic, and Lorby has a nice one as well (Lorby Live Traffic). Aircraft you see are their real world counterparts, flying the actual routes including SIDs and STARs. Liveries are courtesy of FLAI (which are outstanding). I also fly on VATSIM. There are a few things in development to improve all this, but i wouldn't look for any of the to mature to Beta Stages for a couple of years (please don't ask, I can't say anything else). Best wishes!

    GTN Flight Plan Import Process ?

    Hi, if you've created the FPLN folder the first time when the GTN was already loaded up and running, it wouldn't have had the chance to know about this. The GTN scans and detects the presence (or absence) of this folder only during launch. Any change after this requires rebooting the device for it to discover the changes. I'm not sure whether it also requires rebooting the device when you add or delete a flight plan file or if the GTN re-scans the folder content.
  18. I agree that FSDT is very good. Maybe it just needs some PBR to update it a tad. I am not aware of another developer with an LAX? It's funny, in general I can get better FPS with this add-on over using the default LAX? Granted... have to tone down settings a tad (like AI), but way more detail than default.

    What's going on with REX?

    From what I understand the beta code message is basically because they pulled the update at the last minute due to problems (surprise, surprise). Apparently rather than pull the update completely from the server, they just put a beta password to prevent the file from being downloaded. fs1 if I were you I'd just graciously refer everyone to REX customer support. Since you're not an employee no need to take the flack. They are going to get a lot of criticism. Some cases more deserved than others. Issues with a new product, typical have some patience. Breaking a well-established working program that's over a year old for over a week with a bad update with no roll-back or solution, inexcusable to me.
  20. The manual says: Connect HSI/OBS (input) Select if the device uses the HSI OBS Selector for input when in OBS mode Only if the device is connected to HSI. Connect VOR#/OBS (input) Select if the device uses the VOR OBS Selector for input when in OBS mode Only if the device isn’t connected to HSI. So what is this about? 1) 'input': this is a setting for a signal which connects something from the panel to the GTN/GNS V2. 2) when in OBS mode: this applies only when the GTN/GNS V2 is in OBS mode. 3) is/isn't connect to HSI: there is only 1 input signal for the OBS therefore either you connect the GTN to the HSI and you'll get the HSI OBS input, or, you connect the GTN to the VOR and you'll get the VOR OBS input.

    Ok let me speak to Reed and I will assure an answer and a solution to you guys, if that’s fine with you.

    MJahn C47 Missing air file

    Believe it or not, I still had the "Fixes" readme file in the aircraft folder. This is what it fixes: 1. Multiplayer capable exterior models with adjustments to props, chocks, and steps. (Chocks are now linked to the "spoiler" variable. If you have a control key assigned to spoiler, you can handle the chocks via that key. Steps now deploy/retract automatically with the operation of door #1.) 2. Exterior animated windscreen wipers. (Note that if you turn the wipers on in the VC and then switch to spot view, the wiper sound will continue. In this case you can use Monitor > Misc to make them run without any sound.) 3. Improved hardware mixture lever support. (All detents including Idle Cutoff selectable. Take care not to select ICOF unintentionally, as this will shut down your engines.) 4. "Checklist completed" soundbite now plays when completing a checklist page. 5. Overhead paratrooper switches corrected. 6. Altitude gauge pressure indicator corrected. 7. RMI/ADF needles to park horizontally when battery or avionics are OFF. 8. COM/NAV radios tunable with battery off. (Rotary knobs operate mechanically.) 9. Blinking red transponder light when turned ON.

    What's going on with REX?

    Congratulation Sir. Just quick update on the situation. At the moment REX is on a bad luck streak. SF injects textures but not the structures. And now SF seems to have an update, but users getting the message "enter beta code" (technical issue already reported and acknowldegd by support). Brace your self for some salty comments. Thats just the nature of social media, it is diffrent from a real conversation. It is quick and easy to complain and the tone can get a bit harsh. On the other hand comments arent as bad intended as they might show. That is just a phenomenon of social media. My experience: Never take it personal but always serious.

    Does this indicate that only default clouds is present at the moment? Thanks Michael Moe
  26. To clarify: some developers expect the VOR1 related simvars and the HSI related simvars to be the same because there is only one NAV1 source. However there is a distinct set of VOR1 and HSI related SDK variables for a reason. Therefore, whenever they mix the two sets in the same gauge you have to configure the GTN/GNS V2 to 'override' the sets the gauge are using.
