  1. Hi Marcel, Thanks - I'll have to check it out... Hi Folks, Uploaded: Regards, Scott
  2. Hi Folks, Just keep in mind that there are different types of RNAV approaches - both precision and non-precision - some have vertical guidance and others do not... You need to look at the plates... https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ato/service_units/techops/navservices/gnss/library/factsheets/media/RNAV_QFacts_final_06122012.pdf Regards, Scott
  3. Hi Keven, Yeah - I kill it with a right click and a close - I checked the task manger - no chase plane - I'll go through the event logs as well... I also have "Minimize to Taskbar" selected - it doesn't do that either when I manually launch it - not sure if related... Regards, Scott
  4. Hi Keven, 4.75 - no joy... I normally run all my P3D stuff as "Administrator" and I add that condition to all my shortcuts - perhaps a permission issue ? Regards, Scott
  5. Hi Keven, Ahh - AppData... <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>EXE.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_btstrp_config_manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp_config_manager.exe</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>ChasePlane</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\OldProp Solutions Inc\ChasePlane\ChasePlane.exe</Path> <CommandLine>P3Dv4</CommandLine> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> Regards, Scott
  6. Hi Keven, Sure - I looked in CP, P3D, and My Documents - dirs - where is it located ? Regards, Scott
  7. Hi Folks, Thanks as well... Hi Lantz, The plug-in is here - it says it's for PS but it works with PSP as well... If you dive in - let me know - might be able to offer some tips to get started... NVidia Plugin https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-texture-tools-adobe-photoshop Regards, Scott
  8. Hi Keven, There was an update since I posted - now I'm running 4.73 - also tried the "Stable Release" - no joy - still need to start CP manually... Regards, Scott
  9. Hi, Sure - like the legend around here - Steve Drabek - my favorite paint program is Paint Shop Pro - I'm using version x9 but I've been using various versions of it for more than a decade... It's a great little program that does everything - including vector graphics (necessary for smooth curves and striping) - AND you don't have to contribute to Adobe's cash cow - Photoshop - the program that you just keep paying and paying and paying for (subscription based)... I think PSP has a demo if you care to try it - just don't expect to pick it up in one sitting.... There is usually plenty of help available if you ask and a ton of video tutorials on YouTube... It takes a little getting used too - but it quickly becomes an old friend... The next thing you need is free - it's Nvidia's plugin to read and write DDS files - saves you heaps of time keeping the process internal to you paint program - vs - using an additional program to convert files... That's it - it's truly satisfying to be able to paint something you like and see it in sim... As a side note - Carenado/Alabeo models aren't for the faint of heart - they don't make it easy - and they can be an exercise in frustration... They don't provide paint kits and they must have some program that chops up their textures to optimize their placement on a texture sheet - because what looks like a straight stripe on a model - might jump to 7 or 8 little pieces of texture on the sheet all at different angles - therefore - you're the one that needs to sort them out... You can see my stripes are still mangled in my above shots and it will take some tedious and time consuming work to straighten them out... Huge fan of Cape Air - my kingdom for a 402... They fly many of the same routes I mentioned for Tradewind Aviation above... Regards, Scott
  10. Hi Folks, RE: Win10 latest - P3Dv4 latest - CP latest I have the option selected to start and stop CP with P3D - however - it doesn't work... Hasn't worked in a while but it did work at one time... I have to start and stop manually... Anyone else have this issue ? Thanks... Regards, Scott
  11. Hi Martin, Thanks - ok - maybe I'll keep the black - now just to get all the lines straightened out... Regards, Scott
  12. Hi Folks, For my next trick - we need some Tradewind Aviation paints... We'll see how it goes... They seem to fly some interesting and desirable routes: Puerto Rico (TJSJ) to St Barths and other eastern Caribbean destinations... White Plains (KHPN) to Nantucket and other New England destinations... Note: SOMEBODY - please make White Plains - it's a very cool feeder to New York City... Regards, Scott
  13. Hi Folks, While it's a straight forward tracing job of the default blue and silver scheme - what a difference a little color makes... Still very much a work in progress - the stripes need work and I'm debating whether to paint the entire empennage red instead of black - we'll see - I was just surprised how good the red looks when I loaded it up into the sim... Combined with Bert's mods and RXP's GNS I'm really starting to like this plane... Regards, Scott
  14. Hi Folks, Hmm - perhaps the interpretation is actually up to the viewer... Regards, Scott
