  1. Thanks, I was just about to ask what the changes were with hotfix 3 and if it effected only the client or other sections of the sim ...
  2. Bryan That's what I was doing in the beginning, buy FSCrew would not start up. So now I start PMDG in its default state with engines running, then start FSCrew and only then select the required panel state. Works fine, every time, so far !!
  3. Hi Bryan, got this sorted at long last. Re-installing aircraft and FSCrew did nothing to help sort the problem out, but then a brain wave struck. It occurred to me that I was setting up the PMDG 747 before starting FSCrew and therefore in getting the panel set up to follow the FSCrew tutorials I was selecting the long panel state and once everything had settled down I tried to start FSCrew. Once I stopped this and started FSCrew before selecting the panel state everything was ok. I know it has been well documented about not starting with a saved panel state, but thought it referred to those I might set up and save myself, not those already offered as part of the PMDG package. Oh well live and learn as they say !!
  4. I Have had fscrew for PMDG's 747 for just over a week now and it just refuses to start.Or should I say the main interface window refuses to open ! I have checked the config manager to enure all systems read ok, which they do. I have tried start P3D 4.1 in various ways to see if starting with a default aircraft will help, but nope it makes no difference if i start P3D with the PMDG 747 or with a Piper cub and then change. Neither does it make any difference if I start Fscrew before starting P3D I have tried re-assigning different buttons but nope it still doesn't start. I am at a loss here as to what the heck to do..
  5. Your welcome guy's. I hope this does help others find a solution to their problems, I have first hand knowledge of how frustrating this can be ! :-)
  6. OK guy's sorted it. The throttle axsis on my saitak throttle was not fully closing when you brought throttles back to idle. For some reason it was still applying some slight thrust even though the throttle lever was in the full idle position. A quick re calibration on all components soon had things back to normal. Again thank you for your suggestions.
  7. Thanks for the replies folks. Even if the brakes sign is not meant to show, braking is not taking place as the aircraft fails to slow unless I apply manual braking. This has me baffled....
  8. All has been well with the QoTS until recently when landing I noticed the although autobrakes were set to 3 nothing was happening. No brakes sign in the window, no reduction in speed, nothing. Now despite trying to remove and try a clean install with full upgrading by the operation centre each time to the current version, nothing changes. Auto brakes work fine on the B777 and the B737 ? Has anyone got any ideas what might be happening here ? Many thanks for any assistance, this is driving me nuts ! Oh I fly using P3D by the way.
  9. That's me done. I have work tomorrow, so my bed is calling. Hope all goes well for those of you who get in first for downloads. I'll pick it up tomorrow when I get in from work,, :smile:
  10. Exactly, so get to work everybody. Are you joking !! The Queen's about to arrive at our house !!
  11. John repled a little too soon !!When I hover over the download button the only thing that happens is a small box opens up with the word download inside it ? No download id, also if I right click the button a new box opens up with lots of things to do, like open in a new tab or windown, Save the target, e-mail picture,etc,etc properties is at the very end of the list and when selected the only address i get is as follows"http://library.avsim.net/images/Download.png"Ooops well you can see it gives me the address for the actual download button image no file id !I am doing something wrong here, but not sure what ?
  12. Yes a thank you from me as well. This will be of great use to members of our club.
  13. Where are the hanger sites ? all i see at the top of the main page are the links to the file libarary, forums,surverys,links, etc?
  14. Matt this is what I am trying to do for the Flight sim club I belong to...How can i find out the file download id number please ?
  15. Its not your provider or your equipment. The boys over at Kai Tak have released four new update files for their scenery package,and at approx 89mb per package thats alot of bandwidth thats going to be eaten up over the next 5-7 days.I have just tried to download some of the WOAI update packages and am down to 11.5kb/sec and thats before the yanks get on line, so be prepared for another repeat of the strain put on the servers just after xmas when this scenery was first released...
