  1. I started to fill out your print magazine survey but stopped. You're asking the wrong questions. You ask if I subscribe, or not, and if not, do I borrow a copy from a friend. I do neither. I buy virtually every issue of both PC Pilot and Computer Pilot from the newstands. Also, you give me a radio button asking which publication I read. This is not a binary answer. I read both magazines regularly. Your survey doesn't capture this concept, and I suspect many people are like me. Bob

    PSS Dash-8 Repaints???

    I'm looking for textures for the Dash-8-300 for Air Canada Jazz (I have a red one from the PSS site but I'd like the other colors) and US Airways. Does anybody know where I can find them?Bob

    Today's date on Dash8FMC?

    Your navigation database (referred to as an AIRAC) is out of date. It is really no big deal. You will find discrepencies with sceneries that have been reflect changes to airports since the Dash was released. For example, O'Hare recently renamed 9L/27R to 9R/27L and R9R/27L to 10/28. Your database won't reflect these changes but it doesn't matter unless you've updated your AFCAD/airport scenery to reflect these changes.With that said, you can fix this problem by visiting www.navigraph.com. For a few bucks you can download the latest AIRAC and update the Dash engine.Bob

    FSGenesis

Which is better to>install first; or does it matter?>It does not matter unless you are also installing the FSGenesis landclass. If you are installing the landclass, UT offers a fix that allows you to sandwich the FSG landclass with UT landclass to give you the best of both worlds.Bob

    EMB-120 Side views

    >My interest is the Eric Cantu EMB-120. Not OSS.OSS and Eric Cantu are the same thing. Well, not legally, but for the purposes of the model and the configuration files they are. :)With that said, I agree with the sentiment expressed here: It would be great to get some side views to make the cockpit feel a bit more complete.Bob

    Weird FSX ATC

    >Radar Contact v.4 for realistic and immersive ATC.You took the words from my mouth. I understand that JD and team are close to having a patch that works with FSX. I forgot how bad the default ATC and how good RC4 is until I started playing with FSX. >The words 'Chocolate Teapot' come to mind.Now, that is a great expression. I never heard it before but I'll remember it.Bob

    VC gauges unreadable - help please!

    I've noticed this too, especially with labels. For example, when flying the C172, the labels for the toggle switches (i.e., fuel pump, lights, etc.) are unreadable. Any ideas on how to fix that?Bob
  9. I need a little help or insight. I finally started diving into FSX this morning. To get started, I decided to record a flight video so that I could play with various display settings. The video was simple: take-off, fly over a densely populated area, and fly back to the airport for a landing. Trying to execute on that plan was difficult. I ran into to problems.In the first attempt, the flight went really well; however, when I watched the playback, my C172 started sliding sideways on the tarmack and eventually flipped over. Any idea what could cause this problem?Given that the first video was unusable, I tried it again. In the second attempt, the video played back well; however, when I looked at an external view, the camera shook violently. It bounced up and down and forward and back. I am running a nVideo 6600GT with up-to-date drivers. I have not experienced this problem during normal (non-video) flight and did not notice it in Tower or VC mode. Is anybody else having this problem? Any ideas how to solve it?Thanks for any insight in advance.Bob

    GPS flight

    My best guess is that your flight plan doesn't match up with your expected route of flight. For example, it sounds like you have a VOR-to-VOR flight plan loaded into RC4. Have you loaded the flight plan into the GPS or looked at it in FS9 or some other flight plan viewer to see what the stated flight plan is?While RC4 is telling you to resume your own navigation, you do not have the freedom to fly anywhere in they skies you'd like. You're still expected to fly what has been filed.Bob

    Hawaiian Airport Codes?

    David, thanks for a great response.Bob

    Hawaiian Airport Codes?

    Fair enough. I guess my question is broader than just FS. Go to http://www.naco.faa.gov/digital_tpp.asp?ve...&end=05-11-2006. This is the government website. Search on PHJR. No result. Search on KJRF and you get John Rodgers. According to the government, there are no PHxx airports in Hawaii. What's the disconnect?Bob
  13. So, I decided to have some fun with MSFS and take my Bonanza A36 down to Hawaii for a while. I had just downloaded FSGenesis' 9.6m Hawaii Mesh and Landclass and thought it might be fun to do some island hopping. Unfortunately, the airport codes for the Hawaii have thrown me off. Depending upon the program I'm using the airports in the area seem to have many different For example, Kalaeloa field (also known as John Rogers Field) might be listed as with the FAA as JRF or a variety of ICAO codes. For example, FSBuild knows this airport as PHNA, my RealityXP Garamin 430 knows it as PHJR, and MSFS seesm to know it as KJRF. Now, Kalaeloa seems to be particularly funky but as I poke around, it seems like most Hawaiian airports have both a Kxxx designation as well as a PHxx designation. Can anyone shed some light on why this is? And how I can safely build flight plans that work across a variety of add-ons? Thanks.Bob
  14. I'll start by saying that if I should be asking about this someplace else, please let me know. I'm asking here because I only use AdvDisplay for RC4...Since switching to FSUIPC AdvDisplay, the AdvDisplay is showing up in all views (VC, Spot, Tower, etc.). When I used AdvDisplay previously, the display would only appear in the 2D Cockpit view. Any ideas as to how I can prevent FSUIPC AdvDisplay from showing up in every view?Bob
