  1. I guess I am a bit confused still - if I buy this, what will it do AUTOMATICALLY out of the box for FS9 - JUST add lights to the default planes (which I actually never use - I almost always fly the PMDG 737)? Or are there other benefits that happen immediately upon installation. I am not sure I want to go through a lengthy process of editing every single one of my Ultimate Traffic planes manually - not only are there hundreds of these, but it would take a while I am sure....Thanks,Chris Catalano
  2. Does anyone know if the new 3D Lights REDUX for FS9 automatically makes all the addon AI traffic planes (Ultimate Traffic and My Traffic) planes work with the 3D lights? Or, do I have to do something to make all the AI planes work with the 3D lights?Thanks,Chris Catalano
  3. Based on the above comments - since I am connecting my MCP directly to my USB port, and have nothing else connected to the computer via USB except a printer, does the fact that I have a 10 foot USB cable for the MCP have any negative effect? In other words, would a shorter 4 foot USB cable going to the MCP from the computer translate into better results?Chris Catalano
  4. I called GF today. A man named John told me that GF definitely believes that it is a PMDG driver problem, especially since the MCP Pro seems to work very well with the default AC and the Level D 7-6. He offered to take the unit back for the firmware update, but did not believe it would fix the locking up, freezing, and lag time problems. The update would only help a very few people who are experiencing unwanted resets during flight he said. As such, they are not calling this a "fix" to the PMDG problem. He said only one unit was returned for this fix, and the person who got the updated MCP unit, whoever that was, has not called back to let them know if this had any positive effect on the PMDG 737NG problem. Seems like we have a real problem here becuase PMDG seems to believe it is the Go Flight MCP that is the cause of the problem, and Go Flight seems to think the PMDG driver is the cause of the problem. So what do we all do now? I feel helplessly in the middle, especially since I payed the $49 for the PMDG driver with the expectation that this was all I would need to run the 737NG correctly. John told me that very few people have called Go Flight about this problem. Perhaps the rest of you should call to complain as I did since they don't seem to think that this problem is effecting too many of us. In the mean time, what he said seemed to make a lot of sense. How could the MCP work nicely with the default A/C, the Level D, and the PMDG 747 if it is a Go Flight MCP issue? I feel very much in the middle with no support.Chris Catalano
  5. Sorry to say I am having the same frustrating problems with the GF MCP as everyone else is when I use it with the PMDG 737. I have freez-ups, latency problems, blanking of the displays, etc. I am so disappointed! I hope there is an answer to this. This is the ONLY USB item I have plugged into my computer, and I do not have a USB hub, so THAT can't be the problem. I hope this can be worked out because after spending hundreds of dollars on the MCP, and then another $49 on the PMDG driver, this is just not acceptable to have it work so erraticly and so poorly. I am awaiting some good news and some solutions to this problem. Chris Catalano
  6. Once I updated Ultimate Traffic - I see EVERYTHING now! Thank you so much everyone for the help!Chris Catalano
  7. Thanks all - I only have this problem at TNCM - I already removed the TNCM duplicated/conflicting file(s)I always have the slider set too 100% AI traffic - again this is the only aiport I have this problem. When I get home today, I will try changing the day to a weekend and the time to day & see what happens.Thanks for the suggestionsChris Catalano
  8. I just installed KLM, AA, Fed EX, Delta from World of AI - and when I booted up the airport, I still see nothing parked at the terminal. I just want to see AI at the airport so I am not the oly plane there at ehis beautiful addon.Chris Catalano
  9. I don't have any. You mean, if I install AI packages, I will see the planes?Chris Catalano
  10. I purchased the Fly Tampa TNCM airport last night. No matter what I do, I cannot get ANY AI planes to show up - I use Ultimate Traffic. I even deleted any competing AFCAD files just in case. Still nothing. I even tried the new AFCAD file that was in the file library - still no planes showing up. I only see 2 American Connection planes show up at night which remain parked on the tarmac. Any ideas? Even tech support could not seem to figure this one out for me.Thanks,CHris Catalano
  11. Hi Everyone:When I am flying a complete STAR in RC 4, is there a way to request a "direct to point X..." along the STAR so as to shorten the STAR if it is a long one (if ATC can accomodate me at the time of course)? How do I make this request if there is a way (what menu screen would it be on)?Thanks!Chris Catalano
  12. I was wondering - since I received my free copy of FSX after the AVSIM convention, I have only played around with FSX only twice. Because of my older Pentium IV 2.4 GHZ machine, naturally it runs really slow. My FS 9 runs really nicely, with nice frame rates, etc, plus I have all my beautiful addons working on FS 9. Therefore - 2 Questions:- How many of you have had a similar experience as me - tried FS X, and virtually put it back in the box indefinitely, saying, "I'll just stick with FS9 since it works nicely?" And.... - How many feel the difference between the two versions of FS X is very much worth going out and buying a whole new computer system for that can better handle FSX?Is it the difference REALLY worth it?Thanks.Chris Catalano

  14. Dear All:Is there a database of airport ATIS phone numbers to call or websites to visit that will SPECIFICALLY tell you the current landing and departing runways for an airport? This is great for plane watching and also for flight planning since FS9 does not model ACARS.Anyone?Chris Catalano
  15. Thanks for the info!Also - "use the kisp.txt file from Terry"Who is Terry, and where do I find the file from Terry?Thanks,Chris Catalano
