  1. Yes, my connection dropped also. For some reason the data connection selection got turned off in the options menu. Never could figure out how it happened, because it was connected to the internet when I downloaded the SU11 update.
  2. Thanks Bob, that's what it was. Strange that it was off because I always fly with live weather and time and never change any settings, but it's working. thanks again for help. Bill m
  3. Thanks that's what I end up doing.
  4. Just wondering if anyone experiencing problems turning on live weather after update. After the last SU11 update when I go to weather menu, Live Weather is turned off, when I try to turn back on, the switch pops back to off position. I can load the presets but when I choose live weather it pops back to off. Any help or suggestions is much appreciated. Also when I close the sim using the back to desktop feature, It just hangs on the quit simulator screen. Bill M
  5. I tried searching for an answer if we install the patch over the original install or do a fresh install from downloaded update. Does anyone know how to install the latest patch?
  6. I'm experiencing the same addiction. Can you recommend a good 12 step recovery program?
  7. Captains,Some of you are probably surprised to see the "C-130 Captain Exterior" package released without a flyable virtual cockpit.There's no mistake, we believe the product name (Exterior) and the description are clear enough: No virtual cockpit, exterior model only.Are we going to release a working cockpit in the future?We don't know.For now, all we know is that the $14.99 price tag on the "C-130 Captain Exterior" does not include any cockpit related promises or upgrades.
  8. Have you installed the App goggle maps? That's the most likely reason you're getting that message. You need to make it reset back to MSFS default internet connection server.

  10. I would be curious too about how it handles after a long 6 hour flight and then landing at a fairly populated airport. I think it will still suffer the same problems with low FPS as do many other powerful CPU's. But FS2020 should not be that CPU bound like the earlier editions of FS. I'm satisfied with my setup for the time being until something arrives that going to make me retire it and build a new on. Regards
  11. Most likely your problem was you installed the Google map replacement in the past and when you stopped using it, it didnt put back the correct content server address that FS is looking for on start up. Which causes it to crash or lock up.
  12. UK 2000 Releases KSNA for FS2020 https://www.uk2000scenery.co.uk/ksna-johnwayne-2022-msfs, and it looks good. For £14.99 regards
  13. Glad you got things figured out and your Sim going again.
  14. Have you ever in the past installed the google maps addon? If so you must change a file that it uses, if not it will cause MSFS to stall on loading or CTD for no reason. That's why I ask.
  15. I really enjoying MSFS in the freeware and pay ware Helos where I can enjoy the low and slow that the sim really shines on. Can't see going super sonic over the sweat and time I put in over the ground scenery I've installed. I may consider for PD3 OR FSX.
  16. Have you ever installed the Google map replacement addon? If so that's what could be causing your issues. You have to go to your system32 file folder nd remove 2 internet server file entries. Hope this helps
  17. Google maps makes a entry in the system32 drivers folder, when you shut down google maps, it should remove those entries so the next time you restart FS it will load without issues. If it don't remove those entries FS is looking for Asorbo servers to load content but it cant find the servers to link to because google maps change where to look. And it just stops or CTD. Glad Roy got his sim running again. I spent almost a week troubleshooting why my sim stopped loading or would CTD at certain point.

  19. What are your FS 2020 traffic settings if you don't mind sharing? Thanks in advance
  20. For the past week My sim started either hanging up during loading a flight or CTD when I tried to turn on live weather. It also start giving problems highlighting airports and departure spots. It start happening all of a sudden after 6 months of no issues. So I removed all add ons from Community, repaired reloaded and reinstalled FS 6 times all with the same problem. Then I start getting constant message saying my bandwidth was too low and put me in off line mode. I finally found what was causing my problem after hours of pulling my hair out and ready to put this sim back on the shelf. It was the mod that injects google maps in place of the default Bing maps. it's called "MSFS2020 Map Enhancement". Although it worked as described, after turning off, it doesn't change an entry in your C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file back to it's default setting and causing FS to CTD and hang during startup or not work at all no matter how many times you uninstall and reinstall. I was luck and had a backup copy of that host file and when I put the original back in pace my sim start working again as usual.Hope this helps someone.
  21. Thanks for reply back. But it didn't work. Looks like I'm going to do a reinstall
  22. For some reason, I can no longer toggle my live weather on/off again. it's stuck in the off position. If I choose live weather from the drop-down window, it still stays turns off. also, I'm no longer able to select parking spots at airports. I can select the airport but when I want to zoom in and choose any parking, the selection menu disappears when I try to highlight it. Any suggestions? I remember with FSX we were able to delete the FSX.cfg and let it rebuild on next start up. Is that possible in FS 2020? Thanks for any help in advance
  23. Have anyone tried the MilviZ Turbo-Porter for MSFS2020. PC-6 for MSFS2020 (milviz.com) If you love flying the Kodiak, you'll love this one also. It's also much better than the disappointing Twin Otter from Aerosoft.
