    End It All

    Tom, it works fine in W10, at least on my rig. The trick with any installation, of course, is to know which services and programs to stop and which to leave untouched. my rule of thumb is that if it is a MS function, I leave it alone. Sherm

    problems with look and pan

    Many people use FSUIPC to control how joystick, pedals, etc work. The one area where I do not use that software is for the pan view. Instead I use the option built into the sim. I am not booted right now so cannot give you the exact instructions. But, look for a link that enables the hatswitch on your joystick to pan view. I am surprised that your installation does not default to that. btw, you are using the Virtual Cockpit? If you are using 2d, there is no way to pan 360...it only snaps back from each side, even with the hatswitch. Sherm

    Lorby Live Traffic 1.05 released

    I would love to use this program with P3D V4.3 and installed the P3D version. I set up Malawarebytes and Windows Defender in Windows 10 to allow the installation and .exe files to work. The program has been installed. But, I cannot get a splash screen to even begin configuring the program to work. Any help or ideas are appreciated. Thanks...btw, I did run the latest simconnect.msi so I am all but certain that I am up to date. Thanks. Sherm
  5. Now, at least I know that elevation is an issue with PF3. While ATC may not have any situational awareness, at least pilots are not nagged about a change from FP altitude the way FSX default ATC does with an IFR plan. As in real life, this is the pilot's responsibility. I think PF3 would be more realistic however if it provided a dialog scenario as altitude adjustments are made. Sherm

  7. Greetings all, Is there a specific way in LNM to find an airport by its name, city or ICAO designation as there is in PlanG? For example, my home airport is KUGN in Waukegan IL. If there is a way to focus on the airport with a search function, I have yet to find it. Any help and advice is appreciated. Otherwise, I think LNM is superb. Sherm.

    Free Mesh Different Textures

    I am not sure this will help, but did you place Free Mesh correctly in your scenery? This is their recommendation for layering.. I realize the image is a little fuzzy. In short, Free Mesh should be placed below Orbx, tongass Fjiord (if you have it), add on sceneries. It should be just above any add on traffic files, as well as the default FSX scenery listings Sherm

    AVSIM Basic FSX Configuration Guide

    thanks for the work, Jim....but i cannot find anything describing what changes exist in the update. In fact, the version I just downloaded still shows version 1.0.0.0 with a November 2013 date. Sherm
  12. You guys probably know this, but in fSX (I do not have P3D so do not know), when you press F5 it restores scenery. I have found that more often than not when my VAS is lower, I can squeeze more space out by doing this. Sherm
  13. Hi everyone...I did get things worked out. It had to do with the texture folder within the various liveries, especially the one I use for DCA and this entry [fltsim] fallback.1=..\texture //.clean fallback.2=..\..\..\..\Scenery\Global\texture fallback.3=..\..\..\..\..\..\Scenery\Global\texture clean in fallback 1was incorrect...and should not be in place....xxxed out by the //s Sherm
  14. hI Steve, and everyone..... The topic says it all, and the screenshot shows the problem. I have noticed that from time to time with other aircraft there is a slow draw of the cockpit interior....Before V1.3 I was flying V1.2 with my VA DC3 Airways. The new V1.3 has added night lighting of the cockpit....which was not present in the previous version...any help is appreciated. Thanks Sherm
