  1. I believe the development team posted in their forum part of the team will be at the Flight Sim Show (Cosford) Oct. 4th to Oct. 10th. Support requests etc may be delayed. Bob
  2. Never mind, I gave up and reset Win 10. It's faster than spending days trouble shooting. Bob
  3. I'm stumped. I have new client (Win 10 Home) that I successfully installed ASP3dV4. I have mapped drives to the files on the P3dV4 server (Win 10 Pro) which are accessible and listed when viewing 'This PC' from the desktop. The first run of AS ask for the location of the sim and data files, however, the list of files AS shows does not include the mapped drives. Same thing with Proatc folder paths. I can access P3dv4 via a drill down on 'Network' but when I attempt to add it to the P3dv4 path only the folders are listed and not individual files. I can access the mapped drives and sitll have Active Sky P3dv4 running from my old Win 7 client. Since I see the mapped drives and files of P3dv4 I assume my permissions are correct on the server? I was able to set P3dV4 path via 'Network', the road block is User Data which is in a protected area. I lost my local login password so that may be causing the issue. Any help, guesses would be greatly appreciated. Thank! Bob
  4. Let me check, as I could not find the manual after a hasty search. Thank you. Bob Those work as before, the removal and install of the new version wiped the key command setting for me. Thanks. Bob
  5. Hi everyone, The key commands for VS hold and Steering lock appear to have changed. Does anyone know what they are now? Thanks. Bob
  6. Hi, Dumb question, how do you engage the FD and AP? I'm in a stable cruise with a heading and attitude set, the FD/AP will not turn on. Thank you in advance. Bob Fixed. I was loading the plane from a non default one, works now as poor as usual for Carenado.
  7. Hi, I can come up with 64 reasons :) to go to P3dV4 if you have a stable I7 system. From my experience a great many CTD are do to an unstable overclock when the sim server is pushed close to limits. In any case I not aware of a large number of CTD as I've never seen one do to P3d. That is after over 200 hours of flying as all I do is fly; it is the most stable flight simulator I have seen, period. Many of your add-ons are compatible with P3d as I completely removed FSX from my server after 1 week using P3dV4. Have fun! Bob
  8. The Flysimware Lear 35A is my favorite business class. There is no auto throttle so you have to actually fly the plane during takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, approach and landing. :) The GTN 750 is factory installed (if you own it). On those days were you just want to fly it's perfect for a quick startup and 400 knots at FL45 in no time. :) Bob
  9. Quick Question: Can it be networked to my FSX server from my client? Thanks. Bob
  10. Hi, Any software you run elsewhere will reduce your server load. I run AS16 for P3dv4, Aivailasoft EFB (Display Unit), PFPX, TopCat, Plan G, and Radar Contact V4 on my Win 7 client. I networked anything that can be run over my network. Bob
  11. Me too, looks phenomenal and flies like dream. In Sim changes only with the exception of Desktop Nvidia Control Panel which uses only the Preview option set to Quality. Bob
  12. Thank you, I will do an Acronis backup of the E-Drive where P3D lives before trying it again in the future. Bob
  13. Hi everyone, I purchase V2 at half price which I believe is still available. I followed Justin's directions which I assume would apply to V1 and unzipped the whole world allowing it to create 6 Continent folders to a separate folder which can be anywhere including a different drive. Once done I added each Continent to the scenery library and moved them below Oshkosh in the library. I like that because I can deactivate any part of the world if needed. My scenery library looks like this: Oshkosh TOPOSIM North America TOPOSIM South America TOPOSIM Africa TOPOSIM Europe TOPOSIM Asia TOPOSIM Oceania Because of the higher mesh resolutions you will see most US Airports elevated with V2 which I don't find an issue with as it's only noticeable on final approach for a couple minutes out of a 1 to 10 hour flight. Bob
  14. Specifically, is there an entry in the control panel to uninstall any or all of the global parts to put P3dv4 back together as it was before the FTX install. I know FTX central does offer 'uninstall' but as far as I can tell that only de-activates that part in the scenery library. Thank you. Bob
  15. When I attempted to uninstall the 800/900 via the control panel it went into the install routine and ask for disk 1. I manually removed the 800/900 folders then reinstalled, that's when frame rates tanked. I cleaned everything out again, reinstalled everything again and it's working fine. Kyle - Frame rates of 10 - 12 are unflyable and it's not misleading but it's your forum. As you know I can't edit the thread subject, just delete this thread. Bob
