  1. Just tried another test.... changed the language in the sim to Spanish and still get the CTD when spawning to fly. Both the C152 and A320 training works fine with any language.
  2. Thanks for responding.... Thats how mine started, it would happen intermittently at first and I would be able to get flights in. I originally thought it was a bad mod as I would delete recent additions and it would work fine. Now its gotten to the point that it just wont load up. The last update definitely seemed to make it worse. Does your training module work ok?
  3. I have been using MSFS since last November and it has performed perfectly. All of a sudden I'm getting CTD's and I've been trying to get to the bottom of it. I'm now approaching the point of uninstalling and reinstalling the sim, so I wanted to post this here to see if anyone has any suggestions before I take that plunge... I've updated Win10, I've updated and repaired the sim, I've updated MS Store, I've updated my video drivers, I've emptied out my Community folder and still get CTDs. MSFS still starts up fine and I can get to the main menu and move around to all other menus. I can also do the C152 training. I cannot spawn at any airport with any aircraft and go "ready-to-fly"...I get a CTD as soon as the progress bar completes and I start to head for the airport I've chosen. This happens no matter the airport or aircraft. I realized that when I successfully start the C152 training that the instructor voice is female, but when I spawn at an airport the ATC voice is male. I also recall recently that when starting a flight I would hear 2 ATC and/or pilot voices talking over one another and clearing me, which never happened before......could the voices in MSFS be corrupted? I found that one of the fixes for these CTDs is to remove and reinstall the US-English language pack in Win10, but mine is greyed out and cannot be uninstalled. I was able to add the CA-English language pack and then had both CA and US installed, I force-removed US-English via Win PowerShell, but it still showed as installed in control panel even tho PowerShell showed CA-English as the only language. I then deleted CA-English so that US-English was the only one showing in PowerShell.....I'm just not sure I actually removed and reinstalled it. In googling this issue I found that the default language of the pc cannot be removed. Either way, CTDs still occur when trying to spawn to fly. Does anyone have and insight or thoughts on this? Is it time for a uninstall/reinstall? Thanks.
  4. Hi... I have a slight dilemma that I'm hoping someone here will have some insight to.... I'm running P3Dv4.5 and all its addon's on my D: drive. My Win10 system is on my C: drive. I recently had Win10 get corrupted and had to have the C: drive wiped clean and Win10 reinstalled, while the D: drive was left alone. Obviously there are some system files that P3D puts out there as it will not run now....I get an error msg on startup that says "The license type is undefined due to an unsuccessful installation" Lorbi's Add On organizer (also installed on D) shows all of my manual addons as green, but the P3D default stuff (all the areas and base folders) are purple. I also don't see anything related to P3D in my Programs & Features area, yet the game is still there on my D: I do understand why as the new Win10 has no idea what is on D: now. I've re-downloaded the entire P3Dv4.5 install file, but am curious to know if I need to reinstall the entire thing? I would prefer not to have to reinstall all of my add-ons and just put the necessary files out to C: and am worried that a full re-install will erase all the prior work I've put into this. The full install file that I d/l from LM has 3 "install" files... Install client / install scenery / install content and then 9 cabinet files and an exe. Does anyone know what the correct process for an issue like this would be? Am I doomed to a long weekend of reinstalling everything, or is there a quicker way to tell Win10 that P3D is on D:? I really appreciate any help. Thanks Chris
  5. I'm hoping someone can help diagnose an issue I've been having lately in P3Dv4. Out of the blue my weather theme will change, usually to either the "heavy snow" or "gray and rainy" themes. I've tried all kinds of testing before posting here and it happens all the time. Whether I'm running Active Sky or not, whether I'm in a default weather theme (clear skies) or in the User Defined theme, or the ActiveSky weather theme. It has happened while flying, and while paused, and it happens no matter where I am as I've landed at Honolulu with winter textures. Sometimes this is even accompanied by a complete scenario reset to the default "helicopter basics" scenario That's when it becomes really annoying. Has anyone seen this before, or have a clue as to what I can try to remedy it? Any help is appreciated. Chris
  6. Hello, I've recently moved from FS9 to FSX and have the sim running pretty good. Everything is gorgeous and working fine - except for Xpause, which is not pausing my sim at when I tell it.....or at all for that matter. I used FSPause regularly when flying in FS9, so naturally I d/l Xpause for FSX. It loads my flightplan, recognizes the waypoint I choose, I turn on both pause and alarm for my action at the designated point and while the alarm sounds at the right time, the sim will not pause.....not matter what I've tried, which includes: re-installing Xpause / trying to pause at different points / making sure "pause on task" button is checked in FSX / FSUIPC is installed (altho not the registered version). Again, it seems to want to work as the alarm sounds just fine - just wont stop the sim. I'm not sure what else to try. Has anyone else experienced this, or have any suggestions? I relied on FSPause for my longer flights and would like to be able to do the same in FSX. Any help is appreciated. Thanks Chris
  7. just a quick question regarding AI models. i see that EvolveAI now has Embraer models for download. there are quite a few different models out there now, sometimes for the same type of aircraft. how do i know which are the better framerate performers? i have over 2,500 AI planes loaded, so good framerates are essential.would EvolveAI be a better fit than CDAI's models? are Aardvarks the best available? should i replace my CDAI Embraer's with EvolveAI's? any insight is appreciatedthxchris
  8. i'm currently running AS2004.5 B193 and i just purchased the ASv6/ASG full version. from reading some of the other threads, it sounds like i run the unwrapper 1st and then uninstall the old version. is this correct?once the old version is uninstalled i can then remove any residual files?i'm also running FS SkyWorld2004. i believe this can also be removed?thx!lookin forward to getting this up-n-running!chris
  9. my video card crashed on me this weekend. since i wasn't in the market for a new one when it happened, i've been somewhat "out-of-the-loop" in knowing whats available now. i want to replace an ATI 9800pro 128Mb card, and i would like to upgrade, but i think i'm limited to around $200. is there any chance of getting a better card for that much? if not, what are we talking $$ wise?if anyone could give me some insight and info, i would greatly appreciate it.thxchris
  10. Luis, that did the trick!thankschris
  11. ok...i've believe that Flightsim Brasil's Key West scenery is the culprit. here's what happens:when i un-install the scenery, ALL of my trees disappear and my autogen starts flashing white. when i put it back in, my autogen returns to normal and i get all of my trees back....except for fall and winter trees.i have an email into them, but in the meantime would love to hear any ideas as to how to fix this. it appears the installing the scenery changes or replaces something and uninstalling it does NOT put whatever it changes, back to the way it was before.thankschris
  12. thanks, Philip. thats what i'm assuming too. i've narrowed it down to it happening in a 2 week period, but unfortunately i add/remove things from my FS more than i actually fly it! it could be 1 of dozens of things that caused it.i'm starting the slow process of trying to figure out which it may be.chris
  13. yeah.....thanks for your help. :-roll
  14. yeah, at least i think they are. i dont see ANY bare trees here at all. here's some screenshots of all 4 seasons in the order of spring/summer/fall/winter http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/107383.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/107384.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/107385.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/107386.jpgi've looked in the texture folder and i DO have winter textures in there, but for whatever reason they are not being displayed.thxchris
  15. um, no. i tested this is the northern US, Canada, and Denmark. snow is on the ground...winter textures look great....but i have green deciduous trees.chris
