  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
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. I was looking at my "dll.xml" file and noticed that I've accumulated a lot of entries (several Captain Sim, several SDK toolbox, etc.). Does anyone know if these entries impact the VAS?
  11. Are there any plans to incorporate all of the identified errors into a revised edition of the Turorial?
  12. Please excuse me while I climb onto my soapbox.I attended the AVSIM Conference in September and was impressed by the presence on the MS team. They made their
  13. If you want to see the beacon, nav and other lights, you will also have to copy the DC-3's effect files (fx_RD4*.*) from the FS9 Effects folder to the FSX Effects folder.Charlie
  14. Thanks for your reply. I've seen this with a few payware packages. Whenever I have probles with aircraft, one of the first things I do is to check that all of the required files still exist and are in the right places. Having nonexistent files referenced in configuration files makes this process much more difficult. Is there any reason why these errors aren't cleaned up prior to product release?Charlie
  15. I was using Addit!Pro to clean-up my aircraft folders and it identifies a number of files that are referenced in the 747's panel.cfg file but do not exist. Can anyone confirm that these files are not really needed? 747.CDU.bmp 747400_MISCPanel.bmp 747400_RF.bmp 747400_LF.bmp 747400_LS.bmp 747400_LB.bmp 747400_RS.bmp 747400_RB.bmp 747400_BB.bmpCharlie - KSBP
