    SODE Warning Message

    I am getting this warning message when I run Sode v1.6.3: [P3Dv4] Old Sode entries detected in exe.xml, dll.xml and simobjects.cfg at ProgramData location! Platform manage will now try to remove these entries How can I correct this. I have uninstalled and re-installed SODE but with no joy. P3Dv4.3 is installed on my drive designate as "E". Can anyone offer any help? I wanted to attach a screen shot image but cannot figure out how to do it Thanks Dom

    SODE Warning Message

    Thanks for the replies. This is a behavior as of last evening, I did update to GSX2 and then ran into this. I have removed GSX2 but cannot get SODE registered.

    Groundhandling aircraft p3dv4

    Can this application be utilized within payware aircraft such as PMDG? The first post suggests this using 32-bit aircraft in FSX. Dom

    [Solved] Standby Indicator Not Visible

    Update...I found it under Aircraft - Equipment - pag3 3 of 11. Topic closed for me. Dom Meccariello
  5. The standby indicator below the MCP is not visible to me. All I see is a square grey blank where the indicator should be. It has writing on it that reads "ISFD heading from left IRS only", I reviewed the manual which shows the indicator in section 10. How do I get this to display? Thanks Dom

    [Solved] Standby Indicator Not Visible

    Thanks for the reply. I re-ran the installer to repair as you suggested, but no joy. I looked through all of the pages within the options category and did not see an option as you described, but perhaps I missed it. Can you be more specific where It would be? Dom Meccariello

    Start-up Interface screen

    Yes. I was referring to that interface mentioned in Kyle's post. Thank you all for responding. Dom
  9. When I start up P3DV4, the interfered from which you select your options such as aircraft, scenery, etc is very dark, black in color. Can this be modified or altered to a background more like what is illustrated in Rob's guide? Thanks Dom
  10. I recently purchased a custom built PC exclusively for P3dv4 and am just installing the 3rd party peripherals. I would like to know which is the better traffic program to purchase/install....Aerosoft (Bernard Renk) MyTraffic Professional 6.0a OR Flight1 Ultimate Traffic? Thanks Dom

    P3DV4 Compatibility

    I have decided to move on to P3dV4 from FSX. Where can I find a list of FSX software that I can install in a new system built specifically for P3DV4. I know that I will have to possible update some airports and utilities such as PFPX, ASN, FSUIPC etc. Also, will any FSX titles have to be installed on the new system prior to using P3DV4? Any help is appreciated. Thanks Dom

    P3DV4 Compatibility

    Thanks for the reply. For my clarity, the fsx products that I have reside on a windows7 computer. I am ordering a completely new build specifically for P3DV4 onto which I will install P3DV4 only, and nothing from FSX. When I install the scenery or products for which I have a license key and select the P3DV4 installer option, will this suffice or must I have the FSX product installed on the dedicated P3DV4 pc? Dom

    orbx open cl issue

    If you were to view the scenery cfg file, in what order would these be starting with [area.001] which I assume is the lowest area. thanks Dom
  15. Thanks Pete. Is this Traffic Limiter feature applicable to FSX which is what I use? Dom
  16. I am using FSX and have just experienced SODE. I installed V1.31, When I load FSX and the Free Flight screen appears, the window which would display the default Cessna, for example, is black and you do not see the selected aircraft. Any help please? Thanks Dom

    Optimum loading order for applications

    Thanks for the reply Ric. I usually launch in this order: PFPX -FSX - ASN - Pro-ATC. Your order seems to make more sense. So i should launch ASN first to establish weather. PFPX would need the weather to generate a fight plan for import to FSX. PRO-ATC needs the flight plan to calculate their ATC. Then FSX. I'll try this. Dom
  18. I am curious to know what the optimum order for loading applications using FSX given the following: FSX PRO-ATC ACTIVE SKY PFPX Thanks Dom

    When installing third party airports....

    If Bob Morehead did not mean to hijack the thread, then why do it? I have experienced this behavior too many times. Start your own topic. The original post asked a very specific question and deserves a proper reply. Dom

    EZCA camera profiles

    After opening the link, right-click on the text and "save as". You will see the .ecs extension. Dom
  22. I run FSX on my Win 7 x64 system which has an Intel I7-3770 (not OC) at 3.4 gh on an ASUS P8X77-V Deluxe MB. I have 8mb of system memory. My current video card is a GeForce GTX 560-Ti with 1 mb of graphics memory. Given the limitations of FSX would a GTX-770 or 780 with either 2mb or 4mb of memory improve my system with the heavy load of scenery like FTX and a/c like the PMDG-777? Would my VAS usage benefit from the new card? Thanks Dom

    FSX Backup Scheme

    I would like to make a backup of my existing FSX installation, My FSX installation and all related scenery and third party programs reside on my drive designated as "F". Does anyone who has made a backup of their FSX have an inventory of those files that were included in their backup scheme including those files installed on the "C" drive by default? thanks Dom

    FSX Backup Scheme

    Thanks to all but a special thank you to "BeachPapa" for precisely answering my original question. Dom

    FSX Backup Scheme

    Thanks for the responses. I also use Acronis. When you perform your backups, do you image your entire "C" drive also assuming your FSX installation is on a drive other than "C"?. Are there particular files you specifiy? Dom
