  1. I had both FSX and Prep3Dv4 up on separate PC's . About a month ago when P3Dv5 mad its appearance I decided that it I had a good run with FSX and it was time to say goodbye (although I did keep a backup on a plug in disk). Then I went and put Prep3Dv5 up on the PC with v4 and been flitting between v4 and v5 since. I have fond memories of FSX but it didn't take too long to get absorbed in in Prep3D. The one thing I miss from FSX is quick editor I had for doing minor changes to airports quickly and easily it was called AFX and I wish I could buy an equivalent product for Prep3D. You must make your own choice but taking a backup copy of FSX on a removable device is an option to try the water out without drowning.
  2. HI All, I was starting to get into Prep3Dv5 for the first real go today. Everything went pretty well except that I cannot display or print the flight Navigation log. The log won't display when I hit F10 nor can I display it from the flight planner. With P3Dv4 I had the habit of printing my flight plan log after making a flight plan and displaying it on screen where the print option is available and I could display the log in flight after pressing F10. In V5 I just get a blank page. Anyone have any ideas what could cause this issue?
  3. @Twenty6 Did you remember to turn on "Hidden files"?
  4. I am looking for Key assignments primarily. The reasoning is that I use a "Trusty Thrusty" (Thrustmaser Warthog) for my flight simming. When I first installed P3Dv4 I still had FSX installed on a separate PC but used my Thrustmaster on both sims in order to save effort I changed some Prep3d controls to be similar to FSX. Everything worked out fine. So if I can set my P3Dv5 controls to mirror the P3Dv4 controls I use I will be able to use a single Thrustmaster setup for both Prep3d 4 & 5. Thankyou for the advise I will sniff out some XML files and make it all happen. Said with fingers crossed. Sorry Bert but where is that file likely to be stored. I can't find it by searching the Pred3dv4 folder or documents folder can you refine that for me a little please.

  6. I have just installed V5 and would like to copy my V4 Commands to V5 as I have changed the original V4 control commands settings since I installed V4. Can anyone suggest a quick and easy way to do this? I have both v4 and v5 on the same PC but don't know where to find the controls in a transportable file.
  7. Yes an Equivalent of the FSX "AFX" program for Prep3d would be very handy.
  8. I have never had to get into the innards of Windows Defender after opening WD I didn't understand it or how to fix the problem. Has anyone got a pointer to somewhere where I can learn how to use Windows Defender?
  9. Two days ago I installed the latest batch of Win 10 updates. P3D runs fine but UTLIVE which I run fails. I have tried starting UTLIVE both in auto mode when I start P3D or before I start P3d. In both cases I get a message that UTLIVE has failed before P3D completes loading. I am lost for what to do now. Any suggestions would be appreciated. This is the first time I have had any problems of the combination of UTLIVE and P3D. The screen message I receive is "UTLive Client has stopped working". .
  10. Hi, I have a similar sized monitor (in terms of resolution) with FSX Boxed on it and have been using it for some time now I am using 3440 x 1440 resolution without problem or frame rate droppage in FSX, of course the inbuilt FSX memory constraints still apply.
  11. Funny you should mention that, Some of the Airports ATC still ILS approaches some don't. I run Active Sky and had the thought that what I am seeing is somehow weather related but on balance I don't think so. My last flight was to KMSY and I was given an ILS approach by the TAC no problem. I've checked some airports with AFX (greatest simple on the spot airfield editor ever made) and everything looks fine. I'll keep looking and report back if I find the cause.
  12. I think that I should clarify my problem. I have ben flying a stable FSX for years and never had a problem with ILS approaches given by the FSX program. Just recently I have stopped getting ILS approaches and jut been offered VFR approaches although I can tune the ILS frequencies and do an ILS approach without problem. However, I am no longer being given the Options to choose an ILS approach from the ATC system. The system has somehow changed but I have no idea where to look to find the culprit. It seems to me that the scenery config file contains sceneries that include radio frequencies updates etc. I though that someone would be able to tell me how the ATC system works after all ILS frequencies and bearing do change which means that FSX must look for the ILS frequencies when I approach an Airport but I have no idea where FSX looks to find the ILS information for an airport. One would assume the Airport BGL file but although my BGLS have the ILS frequencies properly recorded in the airport BGL files FSX is not "seeing" those ILS frequencies.
  13. I hope that someone can help. Just recently and I prepare to land at my destination but all the airports I have tried only offer me visual approaches. The ILS approach frequencies are correct and work fine but only the visual approaches are given as option by the inbuilt ATC. I suspect that it may have something to do with my scenery config file but that is just a guess. I have had to make changes in the config file order due to a ORBX update. Can anybody point me in the right direction to investigate/fix?
  14. I run my FSX Installation with a 6700K at 4.5GHZ and it does a stallion job. Just as well, I can't run FSX on anything else due to the lack of install key codes.
