  1. Thanks for the help, but I haven't loaded any situation files. I simply load a panel i wish to use. Set it up as you have required (APU , Air-cond, etc etc) and then start fs2crew. Also where are those situation files saved at?thanks again
  2. First of all, congradulations on producing such a fabulous product. I've completed a flight of my own with FS2Crew and It's stunningly realistic and addictive!!However, I'm still having trouble with getting the ZFW of the LVD config manager to be the same as the one from servisair. Servisair constantly reports 244.05 whilst I've tried to change the values in the config manager and saved it a couple of times without success. I do have lvdsdk.dll 1.3 version, ran config after install and followed the tutorial word by word.....thanksEien
  3. Every countrys' TA and TL is different. Does anyone have a site where different country's TA and TL are available?
  4. Ok, Not sure if anyone out there has the same problem as I've been having with TOPCAT. TOPCAT will not be able to start. I've found the solution to this problem. You have to manually set the language for the non-unicode programs to English (found in Control Panel->regional and language settings -> Advanced tab. This seems to be an easy solution but on the other hand is very inconvenient because you have to restart windows everytime you change the settings and most of your non-eng programs will not be able to display the characters properly.Hope this temporary solution will help others until a better one comes out.
  5. Before i go buying this piece of wonderful software, just wanted to make sure if it would work on a 64bit version of windows.....coz not every application out there works ...thanks
  6. not every 32bit out there works..e.g. realplayer doesn't....so I just want to make sure before I make the purchase. ... has anyone tried it yet?
  7. does RC4 run on windows x64 version?
  8. I had the ELEC GEN OFF 1 signal displayed during flight. I followed the abnormal procedures and pressed the Drive DISC button for engine 1. Is that all to the procedure? i also noticed that the N1 value of engine 1 doesn't go up to the autothrottle commanded value (see pic) Also the oil temperature on the STAT page is -150C?? . Could anyone provide me with the full procedure for such a failure? ThanksEien Carter
  9. Ground effect is basically a level of cushion of air caused by the relative airflow flowing over the wings hitting the ground and being deflected. As more flaps are deployed, there will be more ground effect because of the amount of downwash created by the angle of the trailing flaps. The 'cushion' to be more precise is actually a increase in total reaction and a decrease in induced drag which results in a "increase" vertical speed without power increase. Not only on hard surface, ground effect could also be found on water surfaces. This natural effect is used by many birds that migrates long distances over vast water bodies.Eien

  11. Airport departure procedures and noise abatement procedures also play a role in the speed and thrust you take off and climb at. For example in Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport under normal procedures you must accelerate to 250kts before passing 3000ft AGL (Source : EnRoute Supplement Australia Publication).So check your charts/notams etc. and see what what speed restrictions you might need to follow as wellHope this helped you out a bit moreEien
  12. Hi guys,I'm just wondering what would be the best way to start up activesky and FS9 so that once i have the airport loaded all the weather would be loaded especially the wind as this determines the runway in use. Sometimes when the wind is loaded for example on an airfield with runway 16/34 the winds at first was 300 so obviously atc would choose active rwy to be 34 then when activesky loads the weather into FS9 the winds become 170 then active rwy should become 16 but FS9 doesn't change react to the change.thanks~EIen
  13. Is there a way to change the flight number from the previous flight to another one without reloading the whole aircraft?Eien
  14. What if both engine fails? Ever wonder why most airports in the world has a golf course or flat pieces of land in the close proximaty of the airport perimeters?=)Eien
  15. After i installed a fresh PMDG on my new comp the FMC would sometimes not calculate the Vspeeds for me. Thats when i press the V1 V2 and Vr keys nothing appears. The PERF INIT page has been filled in with all the necessary information as well as departure runway etc etc and sometimes it calculates, sometimes it does not. Also the TAT would sometimes report the wrong temperature (either 15C or 0C). Any ideas???Eien Carter
  16. I have 2 sticks of 2nd hand 512mb GEIL pc3200 for sale for $200 if you want. Dual channel is required to run s939 motherboards on its full potential. there are some reviews on 4 motherboards awhile ago that explains this over at OCNZ http://www.overclockers.co.nz/ocnz/review....outamd649390112and i suggest you get a better card then that one as it will bottleneck the rest of your system. 6600GT will be a good choicesorry forgot this was an US based form......lol anyways disregard the first paragraph.
  17. To get the best bang out or ur buck for fs2004 is to get the AMD64. I was also deciding whether to get the Intel or AMD a few weeks ago but my primary purpose for the new system was for games so I went for the AMD and have been very happy with the performance. If you really are going for the AMD64 i recommend the Gigabyte K8nsUltra 939. Although its not an outstanding board, its cheap. The MSI neo2 platinum is the one most people are talking about but also is like in the expensive range of mobo. Soon DFI will be releasing a new socket 939 mobo for AMD which is why I bought a cheap motherboard now, so i could buy the DFI one when its out. DFI boards are known for their top quality and overclockability.
  18. I just came back with the gainward golden samplehaven;t really tested it tho. ANy suggestions on what i should expect out of it??eien

  21. I'm also having the same problem as you but is there another way of correcting it instead of having to reinstall FS??? I';; try with replacing the fsuipc 3.4 with my current 3.411 but the problem is I don't know where it could be downloaded anymore. Could anyone help me out on this??thanksEien

  23. I always had no idea how much difference it would make if i bought a card with 256 instead of 128. Would anyone kindly explain what it does and whether it's worth it to buy a 256 instead of 128 for flightsim purposes??thanks alotEien
  24. >John (Sentirus) is correct. This topic has appeared before>with the same problem concerning airports; as he also>mentioned. It's something to do with the fact that FS9 cannot>model surfaces like runways on a slope, and so any airport>that is on sloping ground will find itself appearing as though>on some kind of a 'shelf' of falsely raised ground. The same>also applies to lakes; as the ground around them slopes, the>lake appears in a raised, almost 'bath-tub' like area of>ground.

DOes this mean we have to stick with it???no solutions???even installing a new mesh instead of the default?ThanksEien
