  1. Having Problems: I installed as per instructions, however when it is loading up in FSX I get an error message "Failed to load file" and then it crashes to desk top.Any suggestions?Mike
  2. Has anyone found a fix for the GPS problem in the B1900C VC view? The picture within the GPS is squashed. I've also tried the Simflyer FSX GNS but it does the same thing. See Attachment 184284.jpg. The 2D pop up view looks OK however.Has anyone found a fix for the multi gray rectangle that shows up on the PMDG B1900D VC view located where the backup attitude indicator is located? See Attachment 184285.jpgIf anyone has had any success in fixing this or isn't seeing this please help.Thanks!Mike
  3. The two pictures are from two different planes. The 1st is showing the GPS for the B1900C and the second picture is for the shiny area in the B1900D. Two different aircraft.Mike

The 2D pop up view looks OK however.Has anyone found a fix for the multi gray rectangle that shows up on the PMDG B1900D VC view located where the backup attitude indicator is located? See 2nd Attachment. Also the fuel Icon does not work.If anyone has had any success in fixing this or isn't seeing this please help.I wish PMDG would at least fix these two things.Thanks!Mike
  5. The GPS in the B1900C is shown in Attachment #1.The gray rectangle for the B1900D is in Attachment #2.Mike
  6. I figured out it was the shader file in documents and settings that got messed up some how. I hadn't done anything to it that I know of. Fortunately I back up my entire computer on a external hard drive so I just copied it back in from there. Now all water is fine.Thanks for the help!Mike
  7. Yesterday my 2X water looked fine. Today it looks like this. I don't think I installed anything that would have done this. What's causing this? My 1X water is fine. I running FSX Acceleration SP2.Please Help!XP Pro, Core 2 Duo OCed to 3.0 GHZ, 8800GTS 640 MB OCed to 575 and 900, 320 gb Hd, 2 GB Dual Path RAM.Mike
  8. I've been trying to map some of the RC responses (1 and 7) to the joystick on FSX so I don't have to take my hand off of the stick to respond and have had no success. Is this possible and how to you do it?Thanks!Mike
  9. Never mind. I found out that I have to use a registered copy of FSUIPC4 which I don't have (just the free unregistered version). So I used a program called Joytokey which did the trick.Mike
  10. Thanks for your response!I guess I'm not getting it. What do you mean by have the joystick "send". Can this be done through FSX Controls menu or do I need some other kind of program?Please help.Thanks!Mike

    FSX Aircraft Compilation

    Manny:How did you port over the Aeroworx B200 and the Carenado Mentor?When I tried the B200 many of the panel displays did not work and when I tried the Mentor since Acceleration, the VC panel shows a big gray square.Mike
  12. Since installing Acceleration, I can't start engines from cold and dark in the default props or addon prop aircraft. I know how to start them, have been doing it for a long time. What the h*ll? Am I missing something?Mike
  13. I have 100% fuel and I cannot start the default Cessna 172 (for example) from the cockpit from cold and dark. If I push ctrl + E then it will automatically start. When that happens, nothing changes at all in the cockpit as far as switches, knobs, levers and etc. The plane will not start from the cockpits nor will any others.Mike
  14. I just finished my first flight with the 747-400 FSX and the only thing I noticed so far was that when I turn the knob from BARO to the radio altimeter the DH for the radio altimeter does not show on the Primary Flight Display like it did for the 747-400 in FS9. The BARO DH shows just fine but not the RADIO DH. Is this a bug or am I missing something?Mike
  15. Your 747 FSX has apparently porked my FSX installation. I read the FAQ and posts about this and I tried to open the DLL.XML as suggested but it will not open in Notebook or XML editor.Please don't tell me that I have to reinstall FSX, Acceration + all of the addons that I have on it now.:-fume I have all of your previous releases and have never had any problems.Need help!!!!!!!!!Mike
  16. After many hours of trial and error using Flight1 XML editor I kept rearranging the DLL.XML without PMDG 747 on it into different orders and then trying it on FSX. I finally found an arrangement which worked so that all of my addons would load. I then reinstalled PMDG 747 which of course installed incorrectly on the DLL.XML. So I went through the trial and error of arrangements again in the DLL.XML. FINALLY I found the right combination so that now all of the addons AND PMDG 747 will load without incident.I believe that when the 747 loads it is messing up the DLL.XML somehow.Anyway here is my DLL.XML file. Perhaps it may help others with the same problem.<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>Launchdll.xmlFalseFalseFSUIPC 4FalseModulesFSUIPC4.dllLevel-D SimulationsFalseFalseModulesLVLD.dllPMDG EventsFalsePMDGDLLsPMDGEvents.dllPMDG OptionsFalsePMDGDLLsPMDGOptions.dllPMDG SoundsFalsePMDGDLLsPMDGSounds.dllObject Placement ToolTrueFalse..Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDKSDKMission Creation Kitobject_placement.dllVisual Effects ToolTrueFalse..Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDKSDKEnvironment KitSpecial Effects SDKvisualfxtool.dllTraffic ToolboxTrueFalse..Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDKSDKEnvironment KitTraffic Toolbox SDKtraffictoolbox.dllFeelThere LegacyX HUDFalseFeelThereLegacyLegacyXHUD.dllFeelThere PIC737X HelperFalseFeelThereB737PIC737XH.dllFSForce DLLfalsefalseC:Program FilesFSForce 2.0FSForce.dllMaddog 2006FalseFalseC:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator XModulesLeonardoSH.dllMike
  17. No!, I UNINSTALLED the PMDG 747 entirely, including it's dlls, put the backup dll.xml (the same one that was installed prior to installing the PMDG 747) in and my other addons still won't load in FSX. PMDG 747 has been completely removed. It has apparently porked my FSX installation in some other way other than the dll.xml otherwise my other addons should now work but they don't.Mike
  18. I uninstalled the 747 and all associated files and replaced the messed up dll.xml with the backup one and still things are f**ked up. This is ridiculous! I need to get this resolved or a refund.Mike

  20. As far as I know I placed the correct lines in the right place in the dll.xml above the simbase.document line but the 747 does not load nor other addons.Help!Mike
  21. I did it another way. I got it from my backed up C: drive which I briefly forgot about. I used the ddl.xml from it which was up to date prior to installing the 747. I then made the changes.It pays to backup the drive every once in a while.Mike

    Now What Do I Do?

    I tried purchasing 744 FSX using Discover and it gave me some sort of Error 6 currency error. I'm afraid to try again because it might result in a double charge and probably won't work anyway. I don't see anything on my account but there are errors there for other purchases so I don't trust it.I will not use PAYPAL. I've never had problems doing it this way before so what is the problem.Mike
  24. Mine is the FSX version of the DO-27. I've seen others with the same problem.I finally fixed it. In case someone else cares here's how.Open the MM_DO27VCP_G4 file from one of the aircraft texture folders to the program DXTbmp. Invert the alpha file to black. Double click on the alpha black screen to get MS Paint to come up. Use custom color to change the black to a different gray scale (I used the slider to get to red, green, blue to 170). Save to file. Back at DXTbmp go to save and save the file, overwriting the existing MM_DO27VCP_G4, and using extended 32 bit 888-8. That should do it. Once your satisfied with the results, copy this modified file to all of the other Aircraft texture folders.It took me a lot of trial and error to figure this out since I'm not that great at this sort of thing.Mike
