  1. Further to my previous message I should clarify that I was getting the "already used messages" when I was trying to re- install "Microsoft Flight Simulator - Gold edition". Perhaps this is different from the original disks (which, as I said before, I still have). I remember that last time I reinstalled from the MS original disks, many years ago, I made a phone call to a MS help centre. The MS centre and the person taking the call had no idea about flight simulator or new key numbers. I don't know where the call centre was or if that would make a difference but the man answering the phone had a strong sub-continental accent so I think the call centre may have been overseas from Oz where I abide.
  2. That is interesting. How did you manage the FSX keys as MS no longer renews keys. I assume that you started with a "clean sheet" PC hence my question. I ask because I have my original FSX and Accelerations disks and would love to reinstall FSX on a CPU upgraded PC. I have a copy of the Flight Simulator "Gold Edition" but can't get it to re-install without a "Key already used" type message. John

    AI traffic problem

    Hi, I would like to know what AFCAD Editor is available and from where, I assume you weren't referring to ADE. I would dearly love a tool like AFCAD (FS AND FSX) were available for P3Dv4. Thanks John
  4. Hi, Just so you know, you can still OC the 8087K. I took mine to 5.5Ghz but that made no apparent difference to P3Dv4 so I set it back to 5.2GHZ for longevity's sake which I run with now.
  5. I have an Asus Predator 34" wide screen monitor running at 3440 x1440 Gsync on and I wouldn't swap it for anything else. It works very well with TrackIR for flightsimming.

    Problems with split level Airport scenery

    Yes, I had an auto update to GSX 2 (trial version Apparently). Not much use when ones a/c is standing on the ground but the gates and jetways are 40' up in the air!
  7. Hi all, I have an issue with "Split level" airports both commercial and native in P3D4. "Split level" airports, as I call them, is where the basic airport is level but other ground, such as that between runways and taxi/access paths are at a different (usually lower) level. I have found samples such as native P3D KDEN and commercial airports such as Dreamteam's KLAS. I have also discovered that whilst FSDT's KDFW is level all vehicles have their wheels buried into the ground surface by about 6" to 9". However, my other commercial purchased airports appear OK and I have had no problems with other inbuilt airports although I haven't visited very many I have has similar problems in FSX and have fixed them by running AFX and placing a flatten polygon around the airport. However I know of no handy tool such as AFX for Prep3D. I also have most of ORBX's US products installed whether these have an impact I do not know. If anyone can point can point me in the right direction to solve these issues I would be most grateful. I have also noticed that Prep3D's loading times seem to have grown a lot just recently. All help an info appreciated. Thanks John

    Scenario Saves and Loads help needed

    Sounds good any pointers on where and how to acquire it?
  9. Hi all, I am fairly new to Prep3D4 and I have screwed up with respect to scenario loads and saves. After finishing a flight I save the scenario in a folder called prep3Dv4 Files. And then create shortcut on the desk top to this file. My intention was to click on the shortcut and resume where I left off. However, whenever I try this Prep3D says it can't find the flight and loads the default flight where I can pick of the flight I want. So I would like to know how to save a scenario and then automatically reload the saved scenery when I next wish to start Prep3Dv4. Can anyone advise what I am doing wrong and how to correct my error? Thanks.

    Change CPU do I ned to reinstall?

    Thanks aero, I will give it a go. I fancy the new Intel 8086K (6 procs at 5GHZ sounds good to me" limited edition. If Win 10 is a problem after an upgrade you can just "upgrade" your PC on the MS site. I have done this before and is a quick way to clear up the windows side of things. I haven't got a reference site URL handy but a quick search will give you the page on "How to".
  11. Hi all, I am contemplating upgrading my CPU only (1151Socket). My question is would this change require a de/re-install of Prep3Dv4?

    Upgrading PC, how does one "move" Prep3D

    Thanks for the advice, sorted.
  14. Hi all, I am contemplating upgrading my motherboard and CPU. I would appreciate and advice on what I need to do to get Prep3D running on the "New" PC. I have Prep3D on its own SSD. FSX can be a real PITA to do this, my hope is that Prep3D is not so troublesome.

    Unable to start QW757-3

    Interesting I hope that you can get it going because I didn't think that the B757 would work in P3D. it would be great if it did.
