    FS Panel Studio for P3D??

    Is anyone using FS Panel Studio and using it for P3D? I am finding some of the FSX gauges work and some don't. Has anyone found a way to import P3DV4 gauges into FS Panel Studio? Thanks.
  2. Don't know if anyone remembers the Robert K Guy's fuelstat gauge for FSX but it is a dandy but the old one for FSX will not work in P3DV4. Has anyone tried to build one or get the FSX one to work in P3DV4? Randy

    Getting black window when GTN runs.

    Here is the contents of gthe rxpGTN.xpl.log: 18/01/25 00:41:00.223 05296 - ] # win.xpl version 2.4.12.0 18/01/25 00:41:00.223 05296 INFO ] Here is the contents of the rxpGtnSim.dll.log: 18/01/25 00:41:02.602 05296 - ] # rxpGtnSim64.dll version 2.4.12.0 18/01/25 00:41:02.601 05296 INFO ] 18/01/25 00:41:46.972 05296 WARN ] can't find trainer installer path ......So that is pretty self explainatory isn't it....now to find out how to point the 750 to the trainer? OK.....here is an update...I just uninstalled and reinstalled the 750 and the trainer and now the 750 was able to find the trainer and it works fine. Thanks for your help....should have read the manual....I see the info about the log files and the ini files there now....sorry.
  4. GTN 750 was running beautifully in X-Plane 11.11 until I tried to open the 750 today....it caused X-Plane to crash and, oddly enough, it deleted my xplane.exe file. I tried replacing the exe file but x-plane would not run. I had to create a new instance of X-Plane and start over. I reinstalled the GTN 750 but now when I open it all I get is a black screen.....nothing. Does anyone have any idea of what might be going on? I uninstalled it several times and reinstalled it. Thanks.
  5. Found the problem......and thanks for all the great suggestions. I have never heard of the "hidden administrator account" I will have to remember that one. What I found was, I had used "FSX Reg Utility" to check to see if the correct path to Steam FSX was set in the Registry and it appeared to be correct so I didn't change it. Well a buddy of mine suggested that I reset it on the off chance that it appeared correct but really wasn't, and sure enough that was exactly what was going on. As soon as I reset the correct path to FSX Steam in the 2 Registry positions that show up in FSX RegUtility it started working correctly and I could install any aircraft I wanted. Thanks again everyone. Randy
  6. Thanks fellas. I tried the Everyone group change and it made no difference. This is really bizarre....I can not figure out what the heck is going on here. I even checked the Attributes in the Properties section of the FSX folder under the General Tab and it has Read only checked so I tried to uncheck it and it appears to run and change all the sub folders and files but when you go back to check it...it says Read Only. So I am stumped.
  7. I have a brand new Windows 10 install with FSX-SE installed. When ever I try to install a new aircraft I get an "error opening file for writing" error and it refers to a file in steamapps\common\fsx\effects\fx_carldnc177.fx If I click ignore I get an error on another file relating to the aircraft. It doesn't appear to matter which aircraft I try to install. I am signed on as Administrator and have gone into User Account Control and moved the slider to the bottom and am running FSX-SE as Administrator and am running the aircraft install program as Administrator. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate the help. Randy
  8. I just got the Pawnee and love it, except for there not being a manual. There are screen shots on the Alabeo website showing a Chemical Loader but I can not find out how to access it. Does anyone have this plane and have figured out how to access the Chemical Loader? Randy

    FSX Fiber Accelerator?

    I have made 2 videos comparing with and without using the Fiber Accelerator. I am a bit reluctant to post these because then the attacks will begin....but here goes. http://youtu.be/p6QjTpxe_0E http://youtu.be/w-W6YwZ1eU4

    Flickering Mouse and 2D Cockpit Issues

    I received a fix for this problem from PMDG Support. This fixes the flashing or jumping cursor problem when using a 2D panel for those of us using "Eyefinity", "Surround" or TripleHead2Go. Included are PANEL files for the 737NGX,...747-400 and the MD11. Here is a link to the files...BE SURE TO READ THE README.TXT FILE. I assume it is ok with Avsim and PMDG to share these files...I guess we will see. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/20158346/PMDG_Surround_cfgs.zip I hope this helps others with this issue.

    Flickering Mouse and 2D Cockpit Issues

    Thanks Michael, but our problem is that the manual for FS2Crew says to set FSX for 2D mode when it starts up....if we do that we get a cursor that is showing busy all the time and it drives you crazy.

    I have the same issue and would love to know if there is a fix for this.

    Known Issues

    So where is this service pack? It has been 4 months since we have seen this original post and the weather radar still does not work.
  15. Yes...those drivers were the first things I installed. I have been looking at the nVidia forum and it appears there are a lot of people having trouble with the 8800 video cards and FSX. I may have to try an ATI card just to see if it works any better.
