    It is fixed!

    Great to know you have been pretty well supported. My main gripe with Carenado is that their paint kits are dreadfully hard to work with. When will they develop a paint kit for each model that makes sense and is easy to use, similar to PMDG, QW and even CS? Come on guys, your aircraft are fabulous. Just make it easier on repainters please?!

    GSX-Level 2

    What we know is as follows: 1. It will be an add-on to the standard GSX at extra cost for those who want it. 2. Development of updates to GSX will continue independently of Level 2. 3. Everything else we know is in the videos. 4. Release date later this year, as I understand it.
  3. This site it far too slow for a download of this size. Please place the file in an online storage service such as DropBox. Then if you send me a private message with a link to the file, I may be able to help you.

    What scenery is this? Which simulator? I have been there and would be interested if this is default or add-on scenery. Cheers, Brian
  5. Hi jymp That would be simple to do, but I don't own any payware 737-200 models or paint kits. Unless you had a freeware model in mind ... I am not wanting to purchase any -200 models. Sorry. Cheers, Brian
  6. Hi Captain! I have lots of experience painting the QW series, both 757 and 787. I also have lots of experience painting whole series of aircraft, both freeware and payware, for virtual airlines. You can view screen shots of almost all of the 22 models I did for TexAir Virtual on their website. I have several other Virtual airlines who are return customers, such as GBAir and Tappers. My charge is USD30 for a freeware model and US50 for a payware model. If you are interested, please let me know by return message. Below are links to screen shots of some of my most recent jobs on the 787-8 and 787-9 models, all of them fictional. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ir9eoky9hhjh0ue/airNQ.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/a67t5jorfteusao/787 Waratah 5.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ior0dhu0srgtf6d/QW789_Tappers_2.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/xg98y2vtojipdix/QW B787-8 Ansett 2.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/8ij6rwqm6brfm83/QW B787-8 Ansett 3.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/e2120ju8lv8ax13/Thumbnail.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/psdsj995ncbqvaf/QW787-9 QantasF1 Descent.jpg?dl=0 I look forward to your response, Brian
  7. That is a huge ask ... my suggestion would be to learn the basics of Photoshop first, including how to manage layers. Read the manual, look for some online tutorials dedicated to Photoshop. Only with that basic understanding would you be able to make good use of any paint kit, let alone the PMDG 747 V3.

    Random sound cutouts?

    I have been having the same problem - but I don't think it is aircraft-related. When it happens on my system, it appears the computer is switching (usually temporarily) to another task running in the background (I haven't worked out what though, because no window comes to the foreground!) ... the FSX window header ghosts out until sound returns. Alternatively if I click in the FSX window, the window header returns to normal colours and the FSX sound returns immediately. I would be interested in knowing if anyone has a solution too!
  9. I need to paint a legacy B747-400 V2 freighter for a client and have discovered that the paint kits for the V2 models can no longer be downloaded from the PMDG website. I have the models and can therefore test the livery when done, but I only retained the passenger model paint kits from my original purchase. If anyone can direct me to where I can download the freighter paint kit for V2 I would be very grateful! Many thanks! Brian

    My oldest flight in simming

    I used to do that same flight quite often in the original subLOGIC sim for Commodore 64! While I am Australian, at the time I lived in southern Michigan, so it was 'local' flying at the time! I have not done it in 30+ years now, so you have inspired me to do it again - only this time I will do it in Carenado's Rockwell Aero Commander 690B with the best Garmin GPS system installed!

    Anyone at PMDG got an answer to these questions? We have been waiting several months now!

    Error message with PMDGsounds.dll

    Thanks for your assistance gentlemen - all working fine now!
  13. Can anyone please help? I am using FSX Acceleration with Windows 7 Enterprise, PMDG 737s, 747 QOTS II, and 777 packages. For no apparent reason I am now getting an error message on startup saying the Flight Simulator has detected a problem with a third-party software package (addon), citing the PMDGsounds.dll as the problem. https://www.dropbox.com/s/txiqvbpif4dxco1/ErrorMessage.jpg?dl=0 I have tried replacing that file from a working version of FSX, and reinstalling my QOTS II and 777 packages, without success. Has anyone else sen this problem, or have a solution to it? Regards, Brian

    Send me a personal message indicating what you would like done and I will look at it. I don't have the model but the paint kit looks OK to work with.

    Thanks for your info guys ... I used the standard PMDG fuel loading in the FS ACTIONS / FUEL menu, and when loaded, the fuel is balanced as you suggested. I guess I need to learn the fuel management system better, as it is quite different from the craft I have been flying!
