  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.
  15. Hi Gary, Interesting one, this! It seems to me that when FSX ATC is talking directly to you it uses the "ATC_TYPE=Bombardier" variable in the [GENERAL] section, plus the last 3 or 4 characters from the "ATC_ID=JA-O68X" variable from the [Flightsim.X] section of the aircraft you've selected. So you'd get something like " Bombardier 68X go to holding point for runway 28 via taxiway Alpha." But if FSX ATC is warning you of a nearby Lear whilst flying it would say something like - " Caution, Learjet, less than four miles. Report the aircraft in sight!" It's using the "ATC_MODEL=LJ45" variable from the [General] section. Another way around being called "Bombardier" is to select an airline name and number from the drop down list in the aircraft details view when selecting.
  16. Hi all, I'm looking to rectify the [FUEL] section of the AIRCRAFT.CFG. I did a little editing of the [WEIGHT & BALANCE] so that the aircraft would be populated by default with pax & baggage. That was ok. I then decided to set values in the [FUEL] section. I forgot that what I was setting was MAX tank values and consequently that's as far as I can fill the tanks now. Of course I also forgot to take note of the original values and now don't know what to put back in! DRAT! Would somebody please post their original [FUEL] section for comparison. This is mine:- [fuel] LeftMain = -2,-7,0,224,4 //Longitudinal(feet), Lateral(feet), Vertical(feet), Usable gallons), Unusable(gallons) LeftAux = -2,-3,0,0,1 RightMain = -2,7,0,224,4 //Longitudinal(feet), Lateral(feet), Vertical(feet, Usable(gallons), Unusable(gallons) RightAux = -2,3,0,0,1 fuel_type = 2 //Fuel type: 1 = Avgas, 2 = JetA number_of_tank_selectors = 1 electric_pump = 1
  17. Hi John, I get that error too, occasionally. What the RXP utility does is to insert the RXP530 as a "pop-up", I think in your case shift-4 will bring it up. The original 530 will show on the VC unless you manually edit the panel.cfg to put the RXP there. Depending on the aircraft in question inserting the RXP into the VC may not be possible. Check out the RXP forums, more info available there. Bert Pieke would be the man to talk to.
  18. Hi Anthony, That's the way mine went. Check out their FAQs to see what this means. In my case the order disappeared from my account. But, as I said above, Jay sorted me out.
  19. Happened to me once. I was buying FTX Scotland. "pending" was listed against FTX Scotland in my a/c with the FlightSimStore. After a few hours it disappeared. Therefore no link came alive for me to download it. Checked that Paypal had indeed paid store. Waited 'till it showed up in my credit card account, then contacted their help desk. Jay sorted me out pronto. Maybe it's just the time difference that makes him unavailable at the moment. He will sort it out.
  20. What do the other [fltsim.xxx] sections have for this? I checked some of my AI aircraft and I just saw "atc_flight_number=", ie no number after the "=".
  21. Hi Christopher, Check your other [fltsim.xxx] sections for comparison for this aircraft. Do they have the line "atc_flight_number="?? Maybe the line is required for ATC control of AI. I know that if it's a user aircraft and no number after the "=" then I get called by the "atc_id=xxxx" line instead. In AI ATC would call the aircraft by the "atc_airline=EASTFLIGHT" and flight number from the flight plan. But if the "atc_flight_number=" line is missing altogether, then maybe it reverts to "atc_id=xxxx" data instead. Test it?
  22. Hi Christopher, More info might help us help you. Was it part of an AI package? What package? Or was it an aircraft added to the likes of UT2? Can you cut and paste the aircraft.cfg to give us a look?
  23. Hi Josh, I have 900 items in my "...//Flight Simulator X Files" folder. Doesn't seem to be a problem. If I click on "<FPL LIST" I get a page with 2 entries. "KLASKLAX" and "KMIAPAKT". The first is the Tutorial flightplan and the second is a flightplan I input via the CDU myself. That is it just lists the EagleSost format flightplans.[ "<FPL LIST" does not list FSX flightplans. Whats done is that you go to the FSX flightplanner and either do a flight plan there form scratch or get it to load a previously saved FSX flightplan. It is now in memory and to put it into the Citation CDU just click "<FRM FS GPS" quote name=jgrobs' timestamp='1372557056' post='2704084] Created a FS9 flight plan on SimRoutes, Re-named it by the AAAA-BBBB_X.PLN convention, placed it in my default FSX flight plans folder, and gave it a shot. When I press FSK 3R, I get the dreaded "INVALID ENTRY", when I press FRM FS GPS, nothing still happens. I'd imagine in the above instance that the renamed flightplan is in FS9/FSX format still, with an Eaglesoft format file name, but when internally checked it doesn't match what it's expecting - hence the error. Clicking "<FRM FS GPS" does nothing because there's no flightplan loaded in memory.
