    Aerosoft Airbus X American Voice Pack

    Jeff............. I don't know what happened to the downloads the first time, but no problems this time. Installed and the voices are clear. You and your "gang" have done a wonderful job. Thanks a bunch. Jack Fentress

    Aerosoft Airbus X American Voice Pack

    Jeff......... No. Not as yet. I was waiting to see if there was something I might overlooked. That'll be my next step. Thanks for the quick reply. From what I'm reading on the forum, this is a great series of packages. Jack

    Aerosoft Airbus X American Voice Pack

    Jeff.......... I don't seem to be able to open the wav files. I've installed the Capt (117 files) and the F.O. (127 files), but when I attempt to activate the Airbus I get a message as follows: Error opening wav file xxxx. None of the wav files could be opened. I installed as individual files, so at the moment, the Sound_ASC folder has 344 individual files. That's the same way I installed for the previous Sound_ ASC folder. I installed per your suggestions, but so far, no luck. Jack Fentress

    Flight plan data now working

    Talk about surprised. Because of a Firefox glitch, I used my Acronis backup to re-install my system. The backup was from the first week in August. After adjusting various programs, I decided to give the Regina/Edmonton flight a chance, since I'd checked out so many other areas. To my surprise, everything worked just as it was supposed to. Finally! Whatever the glitch in FSX, flight plan, the airport or whatever, it seems to be corrected. Thanks to the gang who provided possible solutions even though apparently it was beyond all of our help. Jack Fentress

    300/sp1b

    I had to use my Acronis back up to re-install from a few weeks ago and the update for the 200 and 300 took place after the back up date. The Operations Center is telling me that the 300 er is version 6036 and needs to update but for the life of me I can't find the update download location for this aircraft. I hope someone can direct to the right download area. Jack Fentress

    V speeds and altitude text

    Kyle.......... Well, this is actually a miniscule problem as far as the 737 NGX is concerned. After all, it's only one flight plan in one kind of minor area. I'll get back to it at some point, but "Time Marches On". I think you're too young know the significance of that (lol). Jack

    V speeds and altitude text

    KEVIN........ No, the QRH reads "OFF". I really do appreciate the time your spending on this with me. I double checked the departing runway and it's been changed from 13 to 31. I don't see how that could make any appreciable difference, but who knows. I've got to work on another project for the rest of today, but I'll be back at it tomorrow. By the way, I checked Navigraph to see if they updated PMDG data as they had done the past two cycles. Nothing changed. Jack

    V speeds and altitude text

    Kyle......... Yes, I select the departing/arrival runway(s) just after I enter the departing and arrival airports info, usually as a company route. Jack

    V speeds and altitude text

    Kyle.......... Tried that, but result was exactly the same - no v speeds and partial altitudes in the legs area. There are no sids for Regina, but there is a star for Edmonton. Jack

    V speeds and altitude text

    Kyle.......... I can't think of what I may have overlooked. It seems that the event occurs only when Regina or Edmonton are used. I'd send a pic of the PERF INT, but I can't see any way to attach one here. Yes, I flew the tutorials when the aircraft was released, but it has been quite a while ago. I've been flying the 737 NGX pretty constantly since then, with very few bugs. Jack

    V speeds and altitude text

    Tony/Kyle............ Well, I changed to metric but the same thing happened. No v speed, but partial altitudes in legs area. Then I loaded a flight plan from Vancouver to Edmonton, using the same method(s) as I did from Regina to Edmonton. Everything worked perfectly. I think I'll try Edmonton to Regina and what happens. I'll also try Regina to another airport rather than Edmonton and see what happens in that instance. This getting to be quite a mystery. Jack

    V speeds and altitude text

    Tony/Kyle...... I'm sorry if anyone took offense. That was meant to be just a "tongue in cheek" remark. Nothing more. I should have added an (lol) after that sentence. Tony, I really do appreciate your offer of help. Jack Kyle........... That an interesting bit of news. I've been flying in Canada fairly frequently for years and never had that problem pop up. It's possible that when it didn't I hadn't converted to the Imperial system. I'll give that a try. Jack

    V speeds and altitude text

    Tony.......... Mostly because of my age, I use pounds and other Imperial measurements and have those checked off. The metric measurements, to me, have no relevance in my life. A few years ago, it was tried in the U.S., but after a couple of years, the Government gave up trying to force the issue and we are where we are. Please, those of you who are metric crusaders, don't use this as a new front. Jack

    V speeds and altitude text

    Well, I decided to try again. Still no V speeds but partial altitudes in the legs area. I decided to "fake" the v speeds and off I went. About five minutes into the flight, all of the altitudes "popped up" in the legs area and I had an uneventful rest of the flight to a perfect autoland. Just for the record, the flight was from Regina,Saskatchewan to Calgary, Alberta. Is it possible that the Regina airport runways could be the culprit? Could a livery (as far fetched as that sounds)? Earlier, as a test I used a flight plan from Calgary to Seattle and everything worked perfectly. Jack Jack
