  1. Hi Edward, Regarding your UCRTBASE.DLL error.................... I wonder if this is your anti virus being picky. See my thread here - One of the folders I listed under EXCLUSIONS was "C:/windows/system32", can't remember why. Hope this helps.
  2. Hi all, I've made progress on my problem and thought I'd document the process. I'd decided to reseat cards and plugs etc inside my PC recently and this caused various problems for myself, trying to get the PC to work properly again. I eventually got things working again, but was getting much more frequent Computer "hangs". One of the things I noticed in my investigations was that all my Anti Virus EXCLUSIONS had disappeared!! Copying my backup exclusion files to the appropriate folder didn't work, so had to re-enter them by hand. Voila - "hangs" stopped happening. My PC and FSX became a joy of continuity again. Had some nice flights. Then I thought - I wonder?? Tried the above mentioned aircraft, and joy of joys - no CTD caused by ucrtbase.dll!! (yet.....................) I'll have to keep a weather eye on those exclusions!
  3. Hi Reader, No. I'm using boxed version of FSX + SP1 + SP2.
  4. Hi, I've got 4 Realair aircraft in my hanger - Duke Turbine V2 Legacy V2 Legacy SF-260 Both "V2" a/c crash FSX when trying to load, i.e, go to a/c selection screen, select Legacy V2, hit OK. View changes to current airport, some graphics start to load - then FSX "must close". Checking the event viewer shows the following error - Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.61472.0, time stamp: 0x475e17d3 Faulting module name: ucrtbase.DLL, version: 10.0.14393.2990, time stamp: 0x5caeb859 Exception code: 0xc0000417 Fault offset: 0x000872c4 Faulting process id: 0x2094 Faulting application start time: 0x01d5f6230345e938 Faulting application path: C:\FSX\fsx.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\ucrtbase.DLL Report Id: e7ae13ef-6216-11ea-95d4-0026831871cd From the research I did, I understand that UCRTBASE.DLL is part of MS Visual C++. One piece of advice I came across was to run "repair" on the redistributable. Unfortunately - no change, FSC still bombs! Can anybody shed any light on this? TIA
  5. A picture is worth a 1000 words. Can you post a Virtual Cockpit screenshot of when you are at the point on the approach where you expect to see the diamonds, please? PMW
  6. Hi Spokes, OK! Lets try that! https://www.dropbox.com/s/zqvwh4996qqxwkz/4.jpg?dl=1 https://www.dropbox.com/s/oc19qtbq77fb4qs/5.jpg?dl=1 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ivopcoxzckfq4xd/6.jpg?dl=1 Hmmm....that does something different to the links in the OP. "DL=1" allows download instead of just opening the picture in Dropbox. But....it works! Thanks.
  7. Gents, Thanks for your replies. Tried the shader thing - renamed the SHADER10 folder in C:\users\philip\appdata\local\microsoft\fsx. FSX made a new one but no change to the issue. I then went on to research my issue on the indicated forum, and was back and forth to Steves' DX10 Fixer software UI. On the diagnostic readout it mentioned Toned Shadows disabled, and this particular dialog box mentioned opaque dials. Tried that - toned shadows enabled - back in business!! Off topic - I tried to embed pics in this post as per my OP but they got refused as "not a supported format"!! What am I missing??
  8. Hello all, The aircraft involved are the Realair Turbine Duke V2, and Legacy V1 and V2. With the Duke the instruments show for a second and then disappear. The GTN shows ok. With the Legacies, the instruments don't show at all, but the end results are slightly different. Can anybody shed any light on my problem? Has anybody seen this before? See pics below. I'm running FSX SP2, with DX10 + Steves fixer. https://www.dropbox.com/s/valukv75rhg4k21/1.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/7g0g9oc0xpr42qc/2.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/wlz5b4pjk5um2if/3.jpg?dl=0
  9. This reminds me of a problem I had recently. I had trouble logging into SOME forums. I got no errors, but after a login try I would end up back at the forum home page. What fixed it for me was to reset my ROUTER to factory defaults. I must have changed some setting or other on the router - I don't know what!! I was able to login to all forums after the reset. I wonder would your problem be due to something similar with your router, that a factory reset might fix??
  10. Great job! Thanks, Ron,
  11. Hi Josh, Plan-G is a freeware VFR flight planner. It's available from www.tasoftware.co.uk .You can see the description on their webpage. Also available is the manual on the same webpage. Download the manual and see section 19 - this covers Plan-G on a network.
  12. Josh, I've networked Plan-G for the "Moving Map" facility and exchange of info it gives.
  13. Hi, I had a look at he performance tables and was able to achieve near enough the figures there. Took the aircraft to FL240, about 23 minutes. Take-off using full throttle (MAP 43), full rpm. Climb - I backed off the throttle to MAP 40 and rpm to 2400. I leaned mixture, and as you say, things get a little tight at high altitudes. MAP began to fall above 17000 feet so adjusted up to 40. But by FL200 it had fallen to 35 at full throttle travel, and at FL240 it was 30.5.Referring to the tables I used 2300rpm and MAP29 and leaned the mixture to get a fuel flow of about 32GPH. EGT was about 1225°F. This gives me about 136KIAS/197KTAS. 32GPH is only slightly high compared to the tables, but leaning is a few % "Lean of lean", with a tooltips indication of 12% on the mixture levers. If I go rich of lean, the mixture levers are at 16% and EGT at 1275°F. Airspeed is at 138KIAS/200KTAS and fuel flow is now 38GPH total.
  14. Hi Tristan, Indeed that is the Transponder, and as you say - the left 3D knob only turns it on/off and the right 3D knob does nothing!! To change the code manually, click on the individual digits when you see the plus or minus or use mousewheel. You may need to zoom in to the gauge for accuracy. Speedbugs - put mousepointer on it (changes to hand symbol), use mousewheel. Hope this helps.
