  1. Thanks for the suggestion. I tried changing those values but they have no effect on the text on the base map.
  2. I have a system that uses 4K video resolution. The text size that is used for the airport and other place names on the map is too small to read. Is there a way to adjust this? Thanks. Charlie

    Optional Throttle Assignments

    As PMDG is currently working on the 747-8, I thought that this would be the perfect time to make a suggestion. It seems that for quite a while there has been an ongoing problem with the use of FSUIPC to assign throttle inputs to hardware axes. I was hoping that PMDG and Peter would eventually find a solution but it doesn't look like it will happen. The only thing that has prevented me from moving all throttles assignments off of FSUIPC is that I am hooked on flying your 747 and I need the ability that FSUIPC gives me to assign multiple throttle inputs to a single axis (eg., 1>1+2 & 2>3+4). It would be great if PMDG could add optional menu item that would do this internally. What do you think?

    Vehicle Labels

    I don't use it too often but there are times that I find it useful. For instance, if I am on a downwind approach it's helpful to see any traffic on final so I know when to turn to base. I know I could use the radar in the NGX but I like being able to visually verify where the traffic is. It just seem strange that the panel blocks the scenery and other objects but not those labels.

    Vehicle Labels

    When flying the NGX in P3Dv4, I notice that the vehicle labels for nearby traffic are visible when they go "behind" the VC panel. Is this normal?

    Prepar3D v4 was made for PMDG

    Just finished my first test ride with the QOTSV2 in P3d v4. KLAS to KLAX (extremely short test ride) with AS16 weather, GSX ground services, FSDT airports and no VAS worries. Life is good! Charlie Felix

    FSX, PMDG, and FSUIPC

    Hi, I'm not sure about how to program the button as a "shift key" but I have been able to give buttons multiple functions. What I did was to program the button to a particular function and then wrote down the line that was added to the FSUIPC.ini file. I then programmed the button for the second function. This deleted the first entry and replaced it with the new function. I then edited the the FSUIPC.ini file and manually added the text for the first function. This process can add more functions but remember that only one function will be shown when you go into FSUIPC while running FSX. Hope this helps. Charlie

    Cargo Loader

    I'm not having that problem with GSX. The attached capture shows cargo loaders at the main upper cargo door as well as at the right-side lower door. Do you have the latest updates for GSX? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_J0wLgZDBAJZXNUaXpVNmxUSHc/view?usp=sharing Charlie - KSBP

    Help with Authentication

    Hi, I'm trying to minimize the number of services and startup programs I have running when I'm using FSX. When I eliminate most non-Microsoft apps & services my PMDG planes will not work. What do I need to have running to get my PMDG products to recognize my ownership? Thanks.

    No Bleed Air

    I'm having a strange problem with the -200. When I start the engines using APU bleed air the packs go off, the engines start fine, and the hydraulics and electrical systems power-up as expected. The problem is that there is no bleed air from the engines. The two bleed air switches stay lit. Eventually the packs come back on but if I look at the "Air" status display I can see that they are being powered by the APU rather than the engines. The display shows no green path from the engines. If I turn off the APU, the packs go off and the duct pressure drops to zero. Also, the engines do not respond to the throttles. If I move the throttles the engine display shows that they have moved but power does not increase. I have all failures disabled. Any ideas? Thanks

    Flightsimcon 2015 Updates?

    I live in California and I hope that PMDG will consider an additional sim location on the west coast. BTW - I was at FlightSimCom and on my way back to the Hotel on Saturday afternoon I drove by Signature Flight Support and couldn't help but notice the Captain's beautiful Pan Am DC3. If he'd throw in a free ride on that baby I'd gladly come out to Virginia and try out the simulator. My wife also suggested that it would be a great if the Captain considered having a drawing (maybe $10 - $20 per chance?) for a few rides and gave the proceeds to an aviation related charity (e.g., Flying Doctors) in memory of Tom Allensworth.

    FlightSimCon ?

    Will PMDG be at FlightSimCon in June? It's great to see that someone is holding a conference that has formal presentations and technical round-tables again. Hearing from the Captain and the team would make it even better.

    magdec 2005

    Take a look at the pinned topic on the "PMDG General Forum" titled "Magnetic variation updates for FS9 and FSX!". It has links to the 2010 & 2014 files but I'm not sure about the 2005 version.

    PMDG Ops Center

    FYI - After updating to the newest Ops Ctr. version, I started getting a notice about a missing livery. I tracked it down to my 737-700 Winglet California_One livery which appeared to be installed correctly. It seems that the new Ops Ctr. may no longer be able to handle livery files that contain an underline character. I change the livery file name and the reference in the aircraft.cfg file to California1 and I no longer get the notice.
