  1. Good evening, I have experienced problems over the years with the wings flattening and airspeed going to zero inflight on many aircraft. As has been suggested before, its to do with the pitot heat and anti-ice being on or off, and many people have had the same problem. This I have tried and made no difference, the problem still kept happening. So I thought, I would look up the an explanation of every single section of the aircraft cfg to see if there was something I have missed. I had a found a full explanation of aircraft configuration files by Microsoft which is very helpfuil, and so did a search on that webpage using the word 'deice'. Low and behold, a section on the webpage came up that I had never seen actually in any aircraft cfg file. Here it is: [deice_system] structural_deice_type=1 This section defines the deice system of the aircraft. 0 = None 1 = Heated Leading Edge 2 = Bleed Air Boots 3 = Eng Pump Boots. Examples Airbus A321( structural_deice_type=1 ) Aircreation582SL( structural_deice_type=0 ) Beech Baron 58( structural_deice_type=3 ) Beech King Air 350( structural_deice_type=2 ) I've now added this to all my aircraft and so far, have not had a single problem. Hope this is of help to people if you experience the same as me for many years. Kind regards Gavin
  2. Good morning everyone, I wanted to know if anyone could help me or tell me how to change the beacon fx file for the Project Airbus A380 two top beacons which uses the FS9 beacon fx? I would like to make them flash in unison (so they're sync together) as in reallife but have noticed that on my model the two red top beacons flash independently, one then theother? I have been messing around with the fx files but cannot seem to get it right. Any help would be much appreciated Kind Regards Gavin Moss

    Project Airbus A380 Strobes

    Hi Ed, Thanks for your reply, I'm not quite sure how to change them? If I only have one line in my lights section of the aircraft cfg, won't that only show one light? I am a bit confused Thanks Gav
  4. Good afternoon everyone, I was wondering, does anyone know the strobe fx rate setting or how to make the A380 tail strobe flash in time with the wing strobes? I find the default flashes reallyquickly. I have tried changing the strobe fx file rate but can't seem to get it quite right. Look forward to any help. Kind Regards Gavin Moss
  5. Good evening everyone, I'm looking to see if anyone can help me please. I have Project Airbus A380 in FS9 and noticed that the gear compression is not as compressed as in real life? I have tried to change the contact points and the static compression part in the contact points, but unlike any other aircraft I have done this too, nothing changes and the compression stays the same? I am not sure how I can change it if this method does not work? I'm not sure how I can add the screenshots that I have onto here? I look forward to any reply Kind regards Gavin Moss
  6. Good evening, I'm currently slowly moving over from FS9 to FSX (with a few problems on the way lol) and have recently bought Ultimate Traffic 2 for FSX to use until I get my AIG flightplans all updated and installed. Whilst using UT2, I have started to install some of the latest AIG flightpans into FSX and so have unticked those airlines in UT2 so I don't have duplicates. Today I installed AIG British Airways Winter 2015/2016 flighplans and the repaints using AIFP2, and therefore unticked BA in UT2. When I went into FSX and loaded up Heathrow to check the repaints were all ok, I noticed that there were no BA aircraft anywhere? I've checked the World/Scenery folder and the AIG traffic bgl for BA is there? I'm not quite sure why the BA traffic are not displaying but I have a suspicion that it is something to do with Ultimate Traffic 2? Has anyone else had this same kind of problem? Look forward to any replies Kind regards Gavin Moss
  7. Good afternoon, I'm installing some AI flightplans for FSX and wondered if I can use my DJC A319 from FS2004 in FSX or is there a different model basepack that I need to use? It's because I'm installing British Airways and one of the A319's is in the Dove livery which I cannot find for the FAIB model. I look forward to any help. Kind regards Gavin Moss
  8. Good afternoon, I'm in the process of changing everything over to FSX. I'm trying to install the Project Airbus A319, A319 and A320 as instructed by Project Airbus. I have all the model updates but have a problem with the strobes and nav lights, they do not appear at all? I looked at the aircraft config file and noticed under the lights section it has these entries: [Lights] light.0=3, -57.70, 0.00, 4.70, fx_navwhi320pa , light.1=2, -57.75, 0.00, 4.70, fx_strobe2320pa , light.2=1, 6.8, 0.00, -5.80, fx_beacon320pa , light.3=1, 3.83, 0.00, 8.47, fx_beacon320pa , light.4=4, 20.11, 0.00, 4.00, fx_vclight , light.5=5, 12.570000, -10.48, -5.81, fx_PAland , light.6=5, 12.570000, 10.48, -5.81, fx_PAland , I do not have these FX files and they are not in the effects folder of the FSX model update download folder either so how can I get them if anyone knows? Look forward to any replies Gavin Moss
  9. Morning all, Hiroshi has had a look but doesn't know how to fix this problem either so I'm still looking for some help on this. Kind regards Gavin Moss
  10. Hi, Thanks for having a look, I know what you mean lol. Though in FS9 I changed the static compression and it looked and worked fine but in FSX it doesn't? I tried the same with one of my SSP 767-300ER and in FSX it was fine, the compressed static values stayed the same as in FS9 so it's only a problem with the TDS 787 that I have and can't figure out why it won't change? Hiroshi who modelled the TDS 787 is having a look now I think. Gav
  11. Heya, Yeah the gear is too high hence why in FS9 I compressed the gear but can't in FSX. Cheers for having a look for me Gav
  12. Hi there Charliearon, I redownloaded the tds 787 base pack and used the updated tds model files for fsx. Everytime I've changed the contact points in FS9 they worked, and earlier I coped one of my Project Airbus A320 from FS9 to FSX and the contact points stayed the same, its only the tds 787 so far that I cannot change in FSX even though I could in FS9. I'm completely stumped by it Kind regards Gavin Moss
  13. Good evening, I have recently starting changing over to FSX and have come across a problem. I have TDS 787 in FS9 and changed the contact points to lower the gear compression on the main landing gear which worked fine. In FSX for some reason this doesn't work and I'm not sure why? No matter what the value I change it to, the gear height remains the same and it doesn't compress like it did in FS9? I've tried the TDS support page on Facebook but not really got anywhere so far. Is there something in FSX that I am probably unaware of as I'm new to FSX If anyone can help it would be much appreciated. I look forward to any replies. Kind Regards Gavin Moss
