  1. Thanks, Jim. I finally went to ORBX forum and found out that this seems to be a common problem, requiring a "Re-Synchronization" of ORBX files. No one seems to say what might cause it. I have re-synchronized but have not tried it yet. Dave Hinson
  2. A new problem has just shown up. Strange scenery tiles show up all over the place in all views. I have recently been working a lot to straighten out downloading new NaviGraph files, but don't see how that could be the problem. I have all the ORBX LandClass files. I have tried to repair FSX from original disc, but get stopped because of some "missing" files. I have a couple of questions; 1) Should I try re-downloading landclass files from ORBX ? I have a few other earlier landclass files installed, but all below the ORBX files. 2) Can I repair FSX-Steam from their website ? Any other suggestions ? Must be a somewhat common problem. Dave Hinson
  3. Thanks, Charlie. Did as you suggested, and I did recover some default aircraft, but still no sound. Guess I will try again to repair FSX from original disc, but that doesn't work (missing files, etc.) Is there another route through Steam to repair FSX-SE ? Dave Hinson
  4. Thanks - didn't know if there were any requirements as to changing to a similar type of aircraft, or if it had to be an FSX default aircraft. Now I am having trouble with sound playing in missions. I have .wav files in Sound folder of the mission, and looking at the .xml file for the mission I see it seems to say "play a .wav file" And yes, I have not pressed Q to silence sound. I hope I don't have to Repair or Reload FSX-SE, as it always seems to cause me trouble (missing files, etc.). Thanks again for the help. Dave Hinson
  5. Thanks - found them. What I wanted them for was to possibly edit them to use a different aircraft from default ones. Dave
  6. Can someone please tell me where to find these files ? Dave Hinson
  7. Thanks very much, Bert. My problem was that, being unfamiliar with the Garmin 500 series of GPS units (I have been flying mostly PMDG aircraft ), I did not select GPS on those units, only the CDI on the PFD. Dave Hinson
  8. Thanks, Bert. No, the aircraft will fly right through the GPS track. I must be RIGHT on track and heading in track direction before it will track. And when finally tracking, plane will sometimes miss a turning waypoint. Can HDG and NAV be both engaged ? If not, which takes precedence ? Just can't get this aircraft to "fly right". You mentioned in a 2012 post that you had a possible upgrade for the autopilot. Do you still have it handy ? Can you send a copy to me? dhinson458@morrisbb.net Thanks
  9. I get aligned properly on GPS track using heading, then click NAV on autopilot (with or without HDG mode on) and plane will not track GPS. Sometimes even circling or heading back to original airport. Am I the only one with this problem, or am I doing something wrong ? I love this aircraft, but can only follow GPS track using HDG mode. Can anyone help ? I am not a Newby. Dave Hinson Edit: Finally got AP to track GPS, but ONLY if on track and on proper heading. Looking at the AP .pdf file, I did see that AP would track GPS NAV " Once the course is caught, the AP will hold it.".So NO to intercepting GPS track when off-track. To bad, makes it complicated and attention consuming.
  10. Just got this aircraft - like it mostly, but first time trying to start up and enter flight plan data, I see "Loading Data Base" showing on FMC and never going away. I have latest NaviGraph data in proper folder.(FSX\CarenadoNavigraph\ Any ideas. I will try Carenado help next. Dave Hinson
  11. Paul , if it is paused is not running and taking up memory ? Dave
  12. My FSX-SE loads slowly. Is it OK to leave FSX paused and minimized all the time to keep loading time down ? Dave Hinson
  13. Well, I finally found the problem. Something had snuck a different (SODE) SimObjectsPath into my fsx.cfg file with a 6 and 7 entry (lower down in the fsx.cfg file ) so that I did not see it. So there was a conflict with the numbers in the SimObjectsPath. Oh, well. Thought the AIPlanes directory should work. Thanks for the help. Dave
  14. Yes, there is. But it does not find the directory for AIPlanes, even with WOAI aircraft in it. And I have another mystery - when I scan in vPilot for aircraft, it shows "2203 found, 1118 identified". What makes a mode unidentified ? Dave
  15. I have all my AI AIrcraft installed in ...simobjects\AIPlanes ( to keep too many aircraft from my ..simobjects\Airplane folder ), and I have the following in my fsx.cfg [Main] User Objects=Airplane,GroundVehicles,Boats,AIPlanes SimObjectPaths.0=SimObjects\Airplanes SimObjectPaths.1=SimObjects\Rotorcraft SimObjectPaths.2=SimObjects\GroundVehicles SimObjectPaths.3=SimObjects\Boats SimObjectPaths.4=SimObjects\Animals SimObjectPaths.5=SimObjects\Misc SimObjectPaths.6=SimObjects\AIPlanes But vPilot doesn't see the AI planes. When it scans for AI,it only sees the ones in ...simobjects\Airplane. How can I correct this ? Dave Hinson
