    MD-80 Fonts

    I'm getting unstable fonts for the digital displays on the VC of the MD-80. The font keeps changing when using Win10 and P3Dv4.1. I found the fonts folder in the Maddog folder and have installed each font individually, but so far the fonts keep changing and re-sizing. (Digital displays (radio panel) and FMC only), what is strange is that the proper fonts display, then revert to a different font when changing views. The proper font can appear on the F/O side yet wrong fonts are displayed on the Capt side simultaneously. Resizing the 2D panel can create this on the FMC, but mainly it's the VC affected.

    MD-80 Fonts

    Looks like a TACPAC conflict - early indications appear to show errors resolved following non-start of TACPAC module at sim start.

    MD-80 Fonts

    I've been reading the forum and I see TACPAC possible conflict. I do have TACPAC installed. Will see if stopping TACPAC resolves the issue.

    I can send images of the corrupted display if this helps - please PM me as I don't have an upload site to post on.

    MD-80 Fonts

    Support ticket sent - 4.2 still gives changing fonts, APU start leads to CTD, it's unusable so far. I am operating several high end P3D products sucessfully so it appears to be a MD-80 issue. Hoping this can be fixed. Thanks for any help or suggestions out there!

    MD-80 Fonts

    P3dv4.1 (about to go to 4.2). 1920x1080 monitor. P3D settings for video used and not altered. 2048px MD textures for VC and external. Thanks! Gary
  7. Can you check the download links for the 430/530 please? Text link goes to 404 page not found and the Download button links to the G1000. Thanks Gary
  8. Many many thanks!! PHMUdreamin all sorted now, Ed sorry I didn't realise I had to manually add these to the .ini file. Great to have the Mindstar GNS back again!!
  9. I thought these paramaters were part of the FSUIPC file? Obviously not - I'll adjust and report back. Gary
  10. I'm running your own mindstar NavData but also the Navigraph data too. The crash occurs with the Carenado C177, the C90 and their C340 - should I try other aicraft where I'm running the Mindstar GNS series but without a Carenado add on? Please let me know if I can do some testing on other types. The Carenado aircraft were installed using a registry tweak - not the Estonian tool, so this is possibly the issue? My crash occurs using EGPH (Edinburgh UK) and selecting UW (NDB 368) as the first waypoint from a 24 departure. Both EGPH and the UW NDB are old established waypoints (from 1970 something?) so I'm assuming it's not a new WP issue? I can test it on any of the A2A aircraft or let me know if there is a type you want me to try it on. Also using ORBX Global and Scotland scenery as the base layer with UK2000 EGPH layered above. Windows 10 and P3D v3.4.
  11. Thanks Ed - just tried it and sorry to say its not made a difference, I still have a CTD on FPL page when pressing ENT to load first waypoint. Hopefully LM can come up with something sooner rather than later - fingers crossed!
  12. Using P3D v3.4 I've just installed the latest GNS 1.08.0021 (04Dec) and unfortunately there is still a CTD on entering a flight plan. Hopefully LM have a fix soon to resolve this. Gary

    GPS 430/530 crash

    Yes - I'm using FSUIPC and P3Dv3.4. Same here, disable FSUIPC and there is no crash. Any ideas? .....apart from disabling FSUIPC ;-) And Ed I'm not using 3rd party scenery navaid updates.

    GPS 430/530 crash

    CTD also on GNS530/430 units when not using a flightplan in the default P3Dv3.3 but selecting D> (direct to) and entering the ICAO airport code, and pressing enter on the unit. System freezes then CTD a few seconds later. Gary Using Win10 and version 1.20 of the GNS
  16. Does anyone know the gauge name and parameters for this add-on? The download ships with no documentation and the web link is not yet active. Support request submitted. Thanks, Gary
  17. I really enjoy the Mindstar GNS and it's been a great addition to P3D. I'm using v2.5 and have added the Mindstar 430 x 2 to the default P3D Alabeo Beech A36. Both GNS work in VS and both GNS work in popup on the 2D panel using Shift-1 and both units work as advertised, but shift-1 is the only way of opening the 2D panel. In the VC the cursor changes to the hand shape when hovering over the panel, but left/right click has no action. I would like to have the option to click on the VC screen to open the 2D panel, but it's not working. Can anyone assist? Panel settings: [Window Titles] Window00=GNS 430 Window01=Toggle_Manual Window02=Toggle_Control Window03=INFO //-------------------------------------------------------- [Window00] Background_color=49,49,49 size_mm=500,532 window_size_ratio=1.000 position=0 visible=0 ident=11013 window_size= 0.320, 0.444 window_pos= 0.020, 0.505 zorder=1 gauge00=MPI_GNS!GNS430, 2,0,500,266, 1:3:11013 gauge01=MPI_GNS!GNS430, 3,266,500,266, 2:4:11013 //-------------------------------------------------------- The VC option works, the 2D option works, but the popup is elusive. Other Installed aircraft allow popup on click, but for some reason the A36 doesn't. Thanks for your help!!!! Gary

    C207

    Does anyone know whats happened to the Cessna 207? Its looked close to release for months on the Incomings page, but sadly no further news. I hope nothing too major is holding up the release.
  19. Mark - Select your destination waypoint on the FPL page and enter your route waypoint in its place. Your destination will reappear underneath once ENTER is pressed. There is no airways functionality (or if there is - its not apparent to me), just add each waypoint one at a time. VNAV is not working as it should - pressing NAV or VNAV just swaps NAV to GPS. Every single waypoint needs an appropriate ALT entered into the FMC (no option to leave this blank and climb to cruise - it's a lot of guesswork). There appears to me to be no option to enter an arrival runway even with the 1503 Navigraph update. Good luck with it Mark.
  20. Hi Ryan, yes you can DTO a waypoint in your current plan. If you try to add a waypoint to get a longer run on final, then the whole plan deletes, although the single DTO waypoint works okay. I have managed to get the FPL page to show in flight, but it's still far too buggy. I updated the Navigraph manager and the 1503 upate was loaded, but no runways show for arrival airport - I tried EGCC and EGBB and it's just not working for me. As P3D 2.5 is the current version I'm surprised Carenado released a 2.0 compatible program (if that is the cause - I'm beginning to wonder if it's just a poor release). Nearly forgot - there's no option to add airways routes either. It's getting dangerously close to the 'uninstall a program' button.
  21. Hi CAPFlyer - yes you're right - it says 2.0 compatable not 2.5. Always read the small print.... Ah well, back to the hanger with it. I've raised a support ticket with Carenado.
  22. I got it - more bugs than I can count. Navigraph doesn't recognise the Carenado Citation, so it doesn't update (yet). Adding a DTO waypoint not in the flight plan will erase your flight plan. The fuel remaining shows a fluctuating total running into 6 figures. The NAV button doesn't show any leg info, it switches the HSI from NAV to GPS. You cannot access your FPL legs in flight, instead you get just a summary page. It's nice to see your flight plan added to the HSI and see traffic displayed, the terrain works, but I was not able to get the Wx displayed but I'm sure I'll be able to work it out. Worth the money? - Well you've bought the Citation already so it's worth the extra, but it's still needing a huge amount of work. No obvious documentation with it, but it installed okay into my P3D v2.5. Gary
