  1. Rob, did you get an Xbox 360 or an Xbox One wired controller?
  2. Thanks for the input, but there seems to be a basic misunderstanding about my hardware. I have a Microsoft 360 Wireless Controller and the comments so far appear to relate to the "Xbox One" controller which is very different. I will try and see if fsuipc7 might offer a solution.
  3. I am getting a bit over my head here as I'm not very conversant with game controllers. The port on the front is where my Play & Charge Kit plugs in. I gather you're suggesting that I replace it with what I think I see on Amazon is an inexpensive USB charging cable for the Xbox 360. However, I would think they're essentially the same thing. But my Play & Charge Kit cable doesn't appear to carry data, because when I use it without the Wireless Receiver plugged in, the controller isn't recognized by the computer in the Printers & Devices control panel or in the Device Manager. Are you suggesting that the simple USB charging cable on Amazon will carry data? If so, then shouldn't my Play and Charge kit cable do so as well? Or am I all confused about how these cables are intended to work? Thanks for your help.
  4. Craigeaglefire, just did a little research. Hardwiring for me means buying a wired controller, which I can always do if necessary. pmanhart, I'm not using Steam. VeryBumpy, tried that to no avail.
  5. Many in this forum indicate that the Xbox 360 Wireless Game Controller is great for controlling the drone. Unfortunately, I'm unable to get MSFS 2020 to recognize my Xbox 360 wireless Game Controller. I've tried many of the tips suggested in various forum threads involving problems recognizing controllers and nothing has helped. The most common suggestion I've seen has been to plug an unrecognized controller in when running FS 2020 while it's in setup mode. But for me this causes an immediate CTD. My Xbox Controller is recognized in the Printers and Devices control panel and in Device Manager. It is recognized and works flawlessly in P3D v5 and XP11. It just isn't recognized by MSFS 2020. What's so odd is that my non-supported PFC yoke and TQ, and my MFG pedals, are recognized, but my Microsoft product isn't. Any thoughts on how I might remedy this problem will be appreciated. Thanks, Robert
  6. I'm unable to get this to work. MSFS won't recognize my Xbox 360 wireless Game Controller. I've tried all the tips suggested in this thread and nothing works.

  7. I just went into the 3 X-Europe folders and removed all the tiles replaced by Orbx TrueEarth.
  8. I'd appreciate this link too. Thanks, Robert
  9. Christopher, try Chuck's Guides. It's for the XP 11 757 but may provide what you want. Robert
  10. Thanks for taking the time to explain this. I was a bit lost. I look forward to implementing it later today. Robert
  11. I am using the RXP GTN tool to replace my F1 GTN VC gauges in various planes where only the F1 units are supported, such as A2A and Carenado aircraft. I find, however, that I am unable to close a GTN popup window by clicking on the popup's left bezel as I can do with the F1 popups. Is there a way to implement this feature for the RXP popup windows? I have played with some settings in the ini file, but haven't found anything that will work. Thanks, Robert
  12. That worked! Thanks so very much for the help. Robert
  13. Hi J-P, The RXP 750 is using the 1802 database, which I added long ago for use with the F1 GTN, not the 1803 database used by the RXP unit. Also, in the Registry, the first two paths are there and correct. And there's also a third entry at the top for "(Default)" with "(value not set)." However, the third path you mention - the one for "DBDataPath"="C:\\ProgramData\\Garmin\\Trainers\\Databases\\" - is not there at all. So I suppose I need to add this path and perhaps that might fix the problem. If so, do I go to Edit>New and select one of the options in the list and enter the missing text in the Data field? I need your help here if that is the fix so I don't mess things up any further. Thanks, Robert
  14. Hi J-P, I just wanted to let you know that I uninstalled and reinstalled the RXP 650 and 750 and it made no difference. I still get a Charts Not Available message on the opening Database screen. Robert
  15. Hi J-P, I wasn't as clear as I should have been when I posted early this morning. The problem doesn't involve a specific airport or chart. It is a global problem - "global" meaning all of North America which is where I understand charts ought to be available. Thus the startup screen indicates in yellow text "Charts Not Available" and I get a message alert to this same effect on final launch of the 750. Nonetheless, I ran the tests you suggested. The individual charts are in the folder you indicated, including the charts for the dozen or so airports I tested. The standalone Trainer displays the charts. And changing the sim date to June 1, 2018 doesn't alleviate the problem. I also checked and confirmed that the problem exists for planes which have no GTN, such as the default Mooney Bravo, where I added the RXP GTN as a popup. And it also exists for those planes where I used the RXP tool (which is amazing) to substitute the RXP GTN for the F1 GTN. This includes planes by A2A and Carenado. The only step I can think of that I haven't yet tried is to uninstall and reinstall the RXP 750 and 650. Thanks for your assistance. Robert
