    Dusting off FU3

    Hey Jon, Good to see you're still alive and well! The old FU3 certainly was ahead of it's time on lots of fronts. Imagine where it would be now if it didn't get the chop. I've moved to the tablelands for a while and had to pack everything up. Simming on a laptop just ain't the same. Bruce H

    Oh Lordy! At last!

    Good to see there is still a spark left in the old FU3, I rattle it out occasionally and am still amazed at how good this sim is, especially on today's hardware. Long live FU3! Cheers, Bruce H

    Bit of a larf from down under

  4. Hi, try running the updater from within your Xplane folder, when it finishes it gives you the option of running Xplane immediately. That seems to reset something somehow. Worked for me. On Win 8 it would always hang on startup. After this "tweak" no more problems (so far). Cheers

    HDR is so shimmery

    In Inspector try setting Common-Vertical Sync to 1/2 refresh rate. Worked for me. :rolleyes:

    FlyJsim - news imminent?

    Looks like it's right up there with "Airplane!" AKA "Flying High" down under. :mellow:
  7. I would like to see better control over dual screens in XP. I'm sure a lot of folks would be driving two screens from the one card. It would be great to have bezel management to get rid of the nasty split screen effect. Not sure if this is possible but there you go. As Matthew from "Anne of Green Gables" observed rather dryly, "It don't hurt none to have an opinion" Cheers all, Bruce H (Oz)

    Copilot X

    I tried it, sounded like it might be useful.... but too many issues. Maybe down the track it may be a little more refined (and useful) It would be great if a voice recognition app could drive the ATC to make it more immersive and user friendly. Maybe 10.30? Cheers Bruce H

    Live Flight Map

    Hi Folks,Not sure what happened to this project Ben was working on. I guess went into a tail spin. :-violin Interesting idea tho.Does anyone (Andre?) know of a way of extracting current position, height etc from FU? I've had a bit of a look at the black box recordings, but must confess the output is a bit ah.... meaningless. To me at least.Andre, do you know what form FU keeps it's inflight data in? i.e. would lat/long/heading etc be kept in double floating point or something? Also is lat/long kept as absolute ddd mmm.sss or UTM? Perhaps UTM offset from region origin?Thanks for any advice.Cheers,Bruce H:-wave

    FLED strikes again!!!

    Hi Andre,You can't use Genquadrant to generate night tiles (unless you have modified it). The tile shape, size and internal layout are different to normal maps.As soon as we sort Jon's issues out I will get a copy of Lightgen2.exe to you.Cheers :-wave Bruce H

    Jon,Can you send me the litegen2.log file please? It is probably in your ../maps folder.CheersBruce H

    FLED strikes again!!!

    Hi folks,Back from a short break (nice and dry up on the tablelands Jon :-) , sounds like you should have tried up there!) Certainly traveling through the upper reaches of the Clarence etc. you could see where the water had been. Unfortunately lots of erosion to deal with now.For our overseas listeners, the area around where I live (north NSW) received about 600mm of rain over about a week. Given that the country has been in drought for years, it was a two edged sword, filling the dams but doing lots of damage as well.Now... FLED. :-mad When I got back I started copying back Sanfran into the OZ region, and lo and behold FLED started working again. It appears that the culprit was something to do with the GEN or GENPILE folder, but when I checked the OZ versions they were unchanged from the Sanfran version.Anyway, I copied the complete OZ region back into my working folder and FLED still worked :-roll . So..... I dunno. FLED gives me the heabies sometimes, I know it was probably only meant for in-house LG use initially, but I don't think I have ever come across a more bug ridden piece of "soft"ware. Unless of course it's something I've written :7 Jon. Good to hear you got your lights happening again. I still can't duplicate the problem with the L6-L7 tiles. Could you zip me your N2's when you get a chance. Or the .tga's would be even better.I will email you a later version of LG2 which allows you to selectively turn the levels on/off.What do you mean by "it still won't batch"?Cheers :-wave Bruce H

    Thanks Andre and Hans,FU is working fine, no problems with airports etc. Just FLED :-( I will try the Filemon approach you suggest Andre, although I find it a bit difficult to narrow the results down to anything meaningful.I may also try moving parts of Sanfran back across to OZ and see if that resolves anything.Probably won't get to do much for a few days as I will be away.I hope you will be able to have a fly around Oz soon Hans. Already there is base scenery for around 186,000 square kilometres. Great for bush flying! Take care,Bruce H :-wave
