  1. Hi Ray, Handing Comms over to Otto prior to requesting clearance did the trick ~:) Many thanks for your help with this. I'm ready to make skid marks in the sky with my CS B-52. Best regards, Ken
  2. That's outstanding Ray. I normally always hand Comms over to Otto, but not until I've requested push-back. I look forward to trying this solution (Otto, before clearance request) for my next B52 flight. Sounds like a simple solution ~:) Thanks again, Ken
  3. Hi Ray, Tonight I set the RCV4 assigned code into the Capt Sim B-52 transponder and nothing changed up on the FSX title bar. I captured an image which can be obtained from the Dropbox link below. I've tried various positions of the transponders switches hoping to see the code on the title bar change, but no joy. Not sure what to try next. I don't know if adding a 3rd party transponder "pop-up" to the VC (making all the necessary panel.cfg file changes) would help. Do you know where the transponder / IFF is coded in the typical FSX aircraft (ie. Model / .mdl file, etc) ? Best regards, Ken https://www.dropbox.com/s/l9av2pbuig6hu45/B52_CS_Transponder_1.jpg?dl=0
  4. I understand what to look for now Ray. When I flew the PMDG B744 last night I noticed that the code on the title bar changed when I entered the RCV4 code. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens tonight when I try the B52 again ~:) The info and troubleshooting tip you have provided have been very helpful. Best regards, Ken
  5. Hi Ray, I followed your instructions (above) and the number 4608 is on the FSX title bar, and I entered this number into the Win Calculator using your instructions. What does this do ? And when RCV4 assigns a code where / how should I enter it ? I'm a bit confused regarding how this works. Ken
  6. Thank you for taking time to explain the FSUIPC procedure Ray. And for the codes. I will try it. Also, the transponder click-wheels on the pilot's side panel IFF "box" in the B-52's VC appear to function normally and I am able to set the Code and it looks great ~:) But the code (apparently) just doesn't go anywhere (doesn't get transmitted). I will follow up here after I use your FSUIPC tip. Many thanks, Ken
  7. Hi Ray, Thank you for helping. This is the only aircraft I've had this issue with. And the Sim is FSX Acceleration, Best regards, Ken
  8. To all, Been using Radar Contact from back when Moby Dick was a minnow and still use it with generally no problems. However RCV4 doesn't seem to recognize the codes that I enter into the CS B-52 transponder. I have verified that the codes are being properly entered; so I need to know if there is a workaround for this. The RCV4 ATC of course continually tells me to enter the code (after I've done my best to enter it ~:) Any tips or suggested fixes for this dilemma will be very welcome. Best to all, Ken Boardman
  9. Hi, Are there any 3rd party FMCs (free or payware) that are compatible with the 350i. I am looking for one that will allow for adding custom waypoints (Lat / Lon waypoints) and can be linked to the B350i autopilot, with a database that can be updated via Navigraph. Thank you, Ken B.
  10. RAAS seems to be back to normal Bryan. Had error message during the first FSX start attempt and when I selected the "Yes" option the sim loaded. And when I switched from FSX default ac to a PMDG ac, I found thr RAAS entry on the. pull-down menu. I then shut down FSX and when I restarted > no error message. That was a "eureka" moment ~:) Many thanks, Ken The most recent RAAS(Pro) Log >> Searching for Flight Simulator's Main Window... Retrieving Flight Simulator's Path and Version...

  11. Will do, Bryan. Thank you for the explanation and the help with this, Best regards, Ken
  12. Tonight I did an uninstall / re-install of RAAS Pro and then ran makerunways.exe;. Still get the error msg during FSX startup. Also, when I examined the dll.xml file, no RAAS entry was there so I carefully copied and pasted the entry into it as below >> <Launch.Addon> <Name>RAASPRO</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>.\RAASPRO\RAASPRO.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> After several attempts to start FSX (selecting the "yes" at each error message during the startup, the RAAS log shows (only) the following (please note that all anti-virus and anti-malware has been deactivated).

  13. Hi Bryan, I have tried those 3 solutions without success as Forshaw (above) did, Which is why I am in the forum ~:) I use the full (unlocked) version. I have of course thought about uninstalling / re-installing it, but not sure if that would help, and was hoping for some additional insight into the issue first. Best regards, Ken
  14. My brother informed me of an error message that he was getting today when attempting to start FSX. We both use roughly the same hardware and software and both of us have the PMDG T7 installed. I also have many other PMDG planes installed 744 v3, NGX and others. I have been using RAAS Pro for several years, but I beleive my brother has the PMDG T7's (locked) RAAS version. When I tried to start my FSX this afternoon, I received the same error message during FSX startup. Any idea what is causing this? Screen cap of the error msg is at the below Dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xw1sxbvix51yw5h/MG_152.jpg?dl=0 I believe the error message began after an update to the PMDG Ops Center was unstalled. And I believe that I went through this at least once before after a previous PMDG Ops Center update I contacted PMDG first about this and their support rep Chri Makris suggested that I contact FS2 Crew. Please tell me how to troubleshoot this or perhaps you can suggest a fix. I have tried the three fix techniques offered by FS2 Crew with no success. Best to all, Ken Boardman
