  1. I am usually all over new releases like v5, I just can’t stop myself, but I am holding back on my urge until I start seeing more positive reports on v5. I am watching this forum very closely. I have even reserved space on my ssd drive for when I decide to pull the trigger. I know v5 will get there and I fully intend to upgrade at some point, but I have no problem sticking with 4.5 for the time being. I have even surprised myself with my display of patience. And I do wish everyone well with their setups for v5.
  2. Thanks Frank, that would work for me. It makes perfect sense! I may just use that process for my GTN750 Plans from now on. I like the fact that I have the ability to easily make changes to the route on the fly. Regards, Tom
  3. OK, hopefully I have solved my problem here. While doing a google search on the topic I found a website that simply takes a Departure & Arrival Airport and creates a "SimBrief" flight plan, at the same time it identifies missing waypoints and corrects duplicate waypoints and replaces them with GPS coordinates. Seems to do the trick for me. I tried it and the flight plan was available in the Catalog FP list within the guage. The website is https://fpltoif.com/index. Regards, TS
  4. Thanks for that. I appreciate the quick & helpful response to this thread. I assume half of my FP's have duplicate waypoints then. When you say "edit it in the GUAGE". I am not sure what you mean by the term "Guage". I f I choosed to edit the plan how do I know which waypoint is the culprit?
  5. When you get right down to it, it probably is NO real Biggie for me. It's just a matter of a minute or so to manually input the flight plan for most turboprop flights (5 or 6 waypoints), then dd it to the Catalog. Also, another question though. If I have a plan with a jetway (eg. J115 or whatever) do I have to manually input all waypoints that are included in J115 or is there a shortcut for doing this within the GTN750. Regards, TS
  6. I have created flight plans in .gfp format using the Simbrief FP creator. The plans are created and dropped into : "Program Data\Garmin\Trainers\Databases\FPLN". When I attempt to Import a FP, I do not see half the plans that are in the FPLN folder (Total 121, I ONLY see 51 of those in the Import List). Maybe the answer is that there is a limit to the number of flight plans allowed in the FPLN folder? Regards, TS
  7. Thanks for all your help in these forums! I have updated to v4.5 (Client only), deleted and rebuilt shaders etc. and I am more than happy with the results. Just a curious question though, I checked my registry for the this entry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Avalon.Graphics\DisableHWAcceleration It does not exist in my registry, Do I need to add it? Regards, Tom
  8. I am upgrading from 4.4...I did a flight and if anything, the sim is running the same if not better. But I am still experiencing the occasional 3-4second stutter like I had with version 4.4. This was approaching KJFK though.
  9. Thanks, I appreciate your help. I am about to update to P3D4.5 and I'm gathering as much info as I can. Fingers crossed!
  10. Thanks W! Sorry I meant to ask is it a stand alone entry?
  11. Maybe a silly Q? What is FFTF and is it an entry that LM add to the Prepar3D.cfg...and is 0.15 the standard setting? Regards
  12. Thanks all for your responses. I am squared away now. I had a problem with my user name and I am able to access the forums and thanks Dave for the link to the Alternate site. Merry Xmas, Tom
  13. I was trying to setup a new Forum account and it keeps telling me my display name does not belong to any account, but when I attempt to setup a new account it says my email address already exists in the data base. Is it possible to delete that email address to allow me to re-sign up for a Forum account? I cannot get a hold of anyone from Leonardo, to sort this out, so I am basically between a rock and a hard place at this point, as far as support goes for the MaddogX. Regards
