    ATC

    I am looking for a program like RC4 or ProATC which allows for real background chatter---there are all sorts of AI voice type programs around but I only know of these two that allow for REAL LIFE background chatter to be runnung during the flight ---Real life flying is ALL about the radio and that IS the ambiance and background sound a all Airline flights. I am looking for a program to do this or a way to set it up myself Cheers Thanks Dorn
  2. Is there a program as good as ProATC for XPlane?
  3. Hi Nils, I Attended the FlightSinCon a few weeks ago and after over 30 years of the FSX/Prepare world I am thinking about giving XPlane 11 a try---this is all totally new to me---so for a real Newbie question--what is the scenery being used in the B-17 pictures?

    What about Rex

    Hi All, I am running the P3Dv4 with all the Orbx--PMDG 747 and 777 and Active Sky Beta---I am having no crashes and no problems even with an old cards (two 760's and a 3.2 I7 processor and 24 Gig of Ram. My question is---I think I saw on one of the forums that someone was running rex with V4---is this correct or am I just dreaming? Cheers Dorn
  8. Thanks for the information---This sort of communication always helps big time. If it is almost ready but not quite--then so be it. I just went to my account and did a rouge estimate of what I HAD SPENT AT PMDG OVER THE YEARS AND IT TOTALED OUT TO BETWEEN 1600.00 AND 1700.00--I would not have invested that amount unless I was very very happy with the product. Keep up the good work. I am so looking forward to flying long VA flights without the oom issues. Wish you guys were coming to Simcon 2017 Cheers Dorn

    L-1049 question and PMDG CTD

    Thanks Mike Yes I understand why to go to the PMDG Forum for the 737 question---The memory crashes have always been an issue with PMDG products---I just thought that someone might have a new thought concerning V3---I did not really have this issue much with V2.5. The connie issue is a Prepar issue tho and have been waiting to see if others have fixed this problem. I love the Connie---My first commercial flight was on a connie in 1951--- At eight years of age I was being sent from San Francisco to Ontario for a month of summer camp and flew from San Francisco to Midway on a TWA Connie---At that time SFO still had the outdoor wooden boarding gates that you see in the Movie "The High and Mighty". I remember being sat next to a soldier returning home from Korea and looking out the window for eight hours straight.
  10. Hi All, First---why does my Saitek X-55 Rhino controler not work with the Prepar V3 Generic L-1049 and work perfectly with all the other Generic Prepar V3 aircraft? Why do all my PMDG 737's and 777" cause Prepar v3 to stop running after about One and a half to two hours of flight---this is a bummer for flying in my virtual airline. Thanks---Cheers--and happy Holidays to all!!! Dorn

    Airsimmer and prepar

    Michael, I have the Adelaide X but looking for something more involved like the Fly Tampa or FSDreamteam and FlightBeam stuff . Is all flying at your Qantas Virtual Airline done with Vatsim---or can you fly off Vatsim—I am not a big fan of Vatsim because it is often sketchy with coverage and I love my PRO ATC with tons of real life chatter on vaus routes.

    Airsimmer and prepar

    Thank You Gentlemen, I am going to go into aerosoft support---have not had much luck there in the past--but never say never--I know that when I loaded up the Black Box Airbus the first thing that I needed to do was calibrate the throttle through a Menu LSK on the MCDU-- (this was Highlighted in RED on the first page of the Manual and the Training Tutorial as well) do you know is this is also necessary on the Aerosoft 320/321 version? Michael I see that you are an Orbx supporter---I just put a stunning Orbx Alice Springs Airport in my sim this week (filling in a lot of little airports to go with my Global/Vector/Aus Orbx Scenery0—but I was only able to find a rather funky Scenery for the Adelaide Airport---I see that you are a member of Qantas Virtual and thought you might know of a good Adelaide scenery---or any other Australian airports of high quality---I have over 1800 hrs. with my Virtual but most of my Qantas Flight are international (not all of course)—I am now starting to fill in and fly all the Qantas/Jet Star Domestic routes and really learn the Geography of Australia. I am a retired guy and once I feel as if I really have a handle of the Local geography I think I will take myself and my wife on a 30+ day of touring around Australia. Off to the Aerosoft site! Cheers Dorn

    Airsimmer and prepar

    Thanks Michael, I am trying to become proficient with the Airbus so that I can fly all the Jetstar routes for my FTG Virtual Airline (Qantas Group QF001). I have put this off over the years---I am a retired pilot but never had any Airbus time (It’s all Greek to me). I bought the Aerosoft version but the Saitek X-52 Rhino Throttle Quad will not work with that sim. I bought the Black Box airbus which will work but I cannot find a way to update the Airac Data Base. Navigraph does not produce a data base for black box.—so I am looking for another product---Navigraph does make an Air Simmer Data Pack but it looks like the product will not work with Prepar. What is FLS? Cheers Dorn I
