  1. Greetings folks, So I have the following FPL; KTIW->CARRO->KPWT. So I save and then load the FPL. I decide that I want to add JUVGA between CARRO and KPWT. How would I go about doing that? I've searched on YouTube and the general Interwebs and didn't seem to find anything specific to what I want to do. (Admittedly I didn't spend *that* much time, but at lease I made the effort. 🙂 ) If anyone has any feedback it'd be truly appreciated. Thanks, -Matt
  2. Greetings, I rebuilt my rig and installed RXP 750 for FSX. When I select the 750 a dialog pops up asking for the trainer path. I point to C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\Trainers\Launcher but I get an error that its the wrong version. I installed the trainer using the d\l from the package installer. any ideas? The X-plane version is working just fine.
  3. Sorry folks, I should have been a little more articulate about it being a joke. I thought others might find it amusing that a Flight Instrument handbook was going for more than $3k.
  4. What do you think? Worth the price? https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B014TAAKM4/ref=tmm_hrd_new_olp_sr?ie=UTF8&condition=new&qid=1501467047&sr=1-2
  5. Greetings all, I've been trying to transition from FSX to X-Plane 11 for the last six months or so. There are three areas that are "Must Have" in order for me to use X-Plane; 1. GoFlight module support. (A couple third party developers have taken care of this) 2. Flight Simulator Flight Keeper (FSFK) support. (I'll really miss the ACARS support, but the flight logging works with XPWideClient) 3. A working GTN750. So I'm at 2.5 done. When I first used the 750 from another developer I just fell head over heals for it. I purchased a 10" touch screen just for the 750. I think it's a great addition to any library of add-ons. I stopped short of purchasing the 750 from RXP because of the multi-monitor issue. I really hope this gets resolved soon. Has anyone found a workaround in the mean time to get the 750 attached to a second monitor? From the looks of the RXP site, the 750 is a work of art and look forward to getting it. Thanks, -Matt
  6. Greetings, I'm currently doing the move from MSFS X to X-Plane 10/11. I have PF3 and PFEToXplane working as expected. Seems to be working just fine. I also have World Traffic installed as SimakPerrce does. World Traffic does provide the ability to map data like the default AI in XPlane. We know this works since application like FS Commander and FS Flight Keeper displays XPlane default AI on the map. XPUIPC provides and offset file that can be edited. World Traffic provides custom datarefs that should be able to map. The following are the datarefs for WT 2.0 Dataref NumAirCraft cjs/world_traffic/num_aircraft int # Number of aircraft currently being rendered (integer) Dataref AirCraftType cjs/world_traffic/num_type intarray # Aircraft Type – see Appendix A3 for types (integer array) Dataref AirCraftID cjs/world_traffic/id int # Aircraft Identifier (integer array) Dataref AirCraftAlt cjs/world_traffic/alt_asl floatarray # Altitudes of all aircraft (float array) Dataref AirCraftKIAS cjs/world_traffic/speed_kias floatarray # Speeds of all aircraft (float array) Dataref AirCraftHDG cjs/world_traffic/heading_degT floatarray # Heading of all aircraft (float array) Dataref AirCraftLAT cjs/world_traffic/aircraft_lat floatarray # Position of all aircraft (float array) Dataref AirCraftLON cjs/world_traffic/aircraft_lon floatarray # Position of all aircraft (float array) The following offsets are availabe according to the author of XPUIPC; Offset, bytes, data and read/write value; D840 20 Additional A.I. Airborne traffic r F000 128 A.I. Airborne traffic r F080 40 A.I. Airborne traffic r (An email snippit from a developer I was communicating with) What I do know is that the TCAS data in FSUIPC starts at offset F080 (AI airborne data) and there are 40 slots, each starting every 40 bytes. - 4 bytes: ID (not sure what this is) - 4 bytes: latitude - 4 bytes: longitude - 4 bytes: altitude (ft) - 2 bytes: heading - 2 bytes: speed - 2 bytes: vertical speed - 15 bytes: callsign (15 characters) So if I'm not mistaken we should be able to use the XPUIPCOffSets.cfg file to add the custom TCAS datarefs supplied by World Traffic. The only thing we need now is something that can assimilate this data and apply it. Myself, I just can't seem to put it together to make it work. So if anyone has any ideas and if we can map third party traffic apps it'd be really neato. (Plus groovy cool) -Matt
  7. Never mind. Duh...if I was paying attention the dialog alert explained it. Can the moderator remove this thread? It's really very non-helpful.
  8. Greetings, I purchased PFEToXplane last night and got my key. There is no documentation on what to do to get activated. The manual that comes with the download states that a key file is required. I found the registration.txt file and added my info to include the key. When I select "Activate" from within Xplane I just get a message about some form that's been filled out. How do I get PFEToXplane activated? Thanks, -Matt
  9. Greetings folks, I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to the FS Kneeboard 2 application for iOS. The developer seems to have just abandoned his customers and dropped off. I really hope something bad hasn't happened to him. Anyone know why this good application suddenly just fell off?
  10. Greetings, I had to re-submit my activation due to a change in my system ID when I replaced my hard drive. I submitted my request exactly like I did when I first purchased the product. Instead of getting a key file I got a response stating that I needed to add my serial key, which according to the email I got about activation isn't required. I added my serial key and since sent multiple requests with no response. I've been keeping an eye on my email so I've been ensuring that nothing from MCE is added to the SPAM inbox. Why would getting a key take so long? I'm sending the requests directly from the online mail server application, so I'm not sure if the registration process is getting it. Just double checked the mail server and the emails are going to "register AT multicrewxp DOT com"
  11. Greetings, I'm not sure why, but when I fired up MCE this morning I got the message pop-up that my trail version was over. Then MCE connects to FSX and states "Ready to Go!" When I try to get clearance all I hear is the co-pilot saying something. I'm hearing impaired so I can't make out what he says. I think it might be something about the registration. I deleted the key in the install dir "D:\program...\Multi..." and replaced it, but still have the same issue. I tried running as admin but same thing. UAC is off. I'd appreciate any feedback about this. Thanks, -Matt Actually I replaced the system drive with an SSD. So that changed the system ID. Need to reactivate.
  12. Greetings, I've sent the following request: 716746807 ! Matthew ! Merrill However, I think there may be a problem with this request since I think I've had problems with this before. When I first got RC4 I think my email address was mattm@blarg.net. Now that it's changed to M a tt merrill AT c om cas t DOT NET I think the system either sends to the wrong email or fails on the request. is there any way to find out if this is the case? Thanks, -Matt
  13. Greetings, I'm nearly deaf so when things get rolling I can't distinguish the squelch sound when I press and hold my MCE button to speak. Is it possible for me to add a tone to the beginning and end of the squelch? I know FSUIPC has the ability to provide press and release functionality to a button. I'm just wondering if that's possible with MCE. Thanks, -Matt
  14. Greetings Gerald, Thanks for the reply. Agreed. On the same token large amounts of documentation can be daunting. End users rarely RTFM, and I'm no stranger to that. It's good to know that PF3 is fully supported. There are a few issues that I'm dealing with that makes the integration within my personal flightsim culture difficult. 1. ATC has always been a button input my entire sim career. So it's no wonder to me that I became severely frustrated when I tried to change that. It didn't integrate well with me due to such a dynamic change. This will require training. 2. I didn't fully understand MCE's integration with FSX and PFE. Again a huge change that I didn't recognize as needing more in-depth training. Being in the first quarter of the 21st century we've become quite dependent on intuitive software. I'm not saying MCE isn't, just the expectation of end users can be unrealistic at times. (I'm really pointing the finger at me here) So in essence it's about training and understanding the operations. That's where I was really getting frustrated. Starter's suggestion about doing some flights first at level V3 with PF3 was a very good idea. After 3 or 4 fights I understand now what's expected for different states and situations. I did the training multiple times and added words to the MCE custom dictionary that I thought it was having difficulties with. It's a just a matter of sorting out now what works for me and what doesn't. Since I'm nearly deaf I tend to slur my words so if MCE doesn't recognize a phrase I add to the Windows custom dictionary to ensure the VR understands my pronunciations. Again, I appreciate your input about MCE and PF3. I'm looking forward to getting proficient with both. -Matt
