  1. I made the assumption that the new Leonardo Maddog would use, if not the same code, at least the same variable names as their earlier version. On this basis, I tested out the old module. Obviously it needs the 'ident' entry changing to 'simfolder="Maddogx"', so that the binding will occur. It works, although to what extent I'm not sure yet, because I'm in the middle of testing as I write, but I've got it working on some AP buttons, rotaries, and external lights. I'd be interested in the experience of others.
  2. Does anyone know if this works with the 2018 release?
  3. Cycling is even better. Possibly the most cycle-friendly country in the world. A full network of cycle routes - and no hills!
  4. British Airways send their 747s and 777s EGLL-EGFF and EGKK-EGFF for maintenance at Cardiff. You can usually find current details here.
  5. which I would add, as per my earlier post, 'bad ships' in the otherwise superb AI Ships and AI Ship traffic. Definite cause of two NTDLL.dll crashes for me.
  6. Anyone using the big AI ships package should reduce their ship AI to 0% and see what happens. If that gets rid of the CTD, look through the Scenery folder and remove the .bgl for that particular geographic locality. I've stopped a couple of CTD's (off Marseilles and American Samoa) in that way.
  7. Many thanks. I just bought the CRJ yesterday, and look what Santa then brought! A small contribution for your reindeer is en route via PayPal.
  8. I've been puzzled by that claim, because for ORBX Germany South "The area extends from the border of Germany North and extends south to the borders of Switzerland and Austria.", so how might it impact on airports actually within Austria?
  9. P3D?

    The Al Pelletier? Of the Round Robins?
  10. FSPilotshop (where I bought my original 32-bit Pilot addition) is offering me an upgrade to 64-bit Pro for $53.95. So $47 for a 64-bit Pro, even though from another shop? Absolutely! Downloading as we speak.
  11. Any suggestions for a workaround? Would it help to start LINDA and flick a switch before the sim starts; or does it need the sim to be connected?
  12. I disagree. The price is rocketing upward, rather than going forward, and by 600% at that. I'm always happy to pay an incremental charge for an incremental improvement (for example, where extra work is needed to get a product working in P3DV4) but I can't see any justification for such an increase. The product itself is more or less static, and the base data is provided free by people with ADS transmitters. To me, unless there is some other exploding cost component that I'm not aware of, it looks like gouging plain and simple. And it's a shame that it might kill the usage of Kiek's superb software.
  13. FSX

    Just a point of detail - that's the military King Salman (OERY) Airbase in Riyadh, not the civil King Khaled International Airport (OERK).
  14. No Problem - thanks for the 717!
  15. The only problem is that it completely dominates your life ? If I want to fly in the Pacific I have to do so In the (UK) morning, in the Americas then in the evening, otherwise I have to stick to Europe. That aside, it's been a complete quantum jump for my simming. Nicely spaced aircraft on the approach, no goarounds except in real life, aircraft use the correct runways, aircraft taxi at a sensible speed, they don't take forever to line up and take off, other aircraft follow the exact same SID, STAR, routes that you are on, the list goes on...
