  1. Hi Stan, there is an option in EZdoc (btw my updated ver is 2.6.0.29) its in 'options'...Define Keys and Buttons.. at the bottom of pop-up .. Default View System.. there is also an option in 'Tools to get' Factory Camers for current Aircraft' just browse to the 'Aircraft.cfg' file bob
  2. 'The above problem for the two gtn750 showing up in task manager is of course for the 'Single gtn 750' selection choice at installation. bob
  3. If you are using the GTN750 version just check in Task manager there is not two versions running. if there is then you need to mod the panel file. quote out vcockpit31 //-------------------------------------------------------- //[VCockpit31] //size_mm=1024,1024 //pixel_size=1024,1024 //texture=$GTN750_2 //background_color=0,0,0 //gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750VC, 0,0,677,794,UNIT2 bob
  4. There is a video at Flysimware on how to start the engines. it may be down to the 'start - Locks. The AP is working here ok, just done a take-off, set the altitude 5000! pressed the ap on switch/button, pressed the alt button and dial in the vs rate. I see ThomasAH just pinged a reply. BTW there is an update to FSuipc5 ver 5123e bob
  5. I've posted a new topic re a new update. bob
  6. Mark Taylor has just posted on FB that the C402 has been updated to v 2.4 quote :- "VERSION 2.4 UPDATES: FEB 21, 2018 New Features: L R fuel flow warning lights now extinguish at around 1,200 RPM or 38 PSI hydraulic pressure. ASI reference card updated for new "Airpeed Limitations Table". (Check Kneeboard) ASI background card texture updated to match new "Airspeed Indicator Table". Attitude gauge updated with outer card now banks and upper pointer is now static. Any door open now shows on annunciator warning light. Ram air knob added for fresh air. Gear warning for theses conditions: 1) Throttle below 20 percent with gear up. 2) Flaps 30 and beyond with gear up. Bugs & Updates: G load tolerance updated for new pitch control. Auto start causes left fuel tank selector to go to all tanks and gets stuck. Fixed. Flight Dynamics: Pitch and Rudder control improved for realism. Pitch stability improved for realism. Major overhaul on the engine for accurate engine performance"
  7. Its also worth trying Anisotropic Filtering mode/setting of 16 set in NI .. Global...instead of in-sim. using user/defined, bob
  8. I'm using 5.123b this link was posted by an avsim member on another thread.:- edit thanks to B777ER http://forum.simflight.com/topic/84933-prepar3d-v42-simconnect-and-fsuipc-5123c/?tab=comments#comment-513549
  9. I edited my first post.
  10. Just open FTX Central, it notes the ones not installed. edit you can also check in the Scenery Library.
  11. Its been posted on the EZdoc support that they are working on a new version for Prepar3D v 4.2. They know about some problems including 'nose steering' bob
  12. Hi David , not done any Scenery yet but I've managed to install some Add-on Airplanes, so you could have a go at that. Installing Airplanes into the Addon-ons folder method. This method can be used if the developers install application permits you to browse to a location. In the Prepar3D Addon-ons [Folder] create the folowing folders for your add-on Airplanes :- for example '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' [Carenado] [Flysimware] [Xtreme Phototypes] [Orbx Objectflow 2] ...you may already have this folder if you have Orbx stuff [Add-on.xml .. this file needs to be created...see note below* ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' now create the folowing folders inside each of the above developers folders for examamle in the [Xtreme Phototypes] folder .................................. [effects] [Fonts] [Gauges] [Scrips] [Simobjects] ... create another folder in the [Simobjects] folder .. [Airplane] [Sound] [xtreme Phototypes] .. .................................... note .. some of thses folders may not be used during the installation. * the Add-on.xml file should look something like this :- <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>Xtreme Phototypes</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>Aircraft by Xtreme Phototypes</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>Effects</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Fonts</Category> <Path>Fonts</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Gauges</Category> <Path>Gauges</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scripts</Category> <Path>Scripts</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>SimObjects\Airplanes</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Sound</Category> <Path>Sound</Path> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> After setting up of xml file and installing Airplanes, start up Prepar3D and you should get a pop up to ask you to enable the add-on. for some Airplanes you may have to alter the path in the panel.cfg file for some modified swith sounds, for example in the Xtreme Phototyoes lear25 :- [Vcockpit05] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=256,256 visible=0 pixel_size=256,256 texture=$GLJ25_03_G_D gauge00=XPGL25v2_Sound!FBGS_XMLSound, 18,5,1,1,D:\Users\Watkin\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\Xtreme Phototypes\SimObjects\Airplanes\\XP_Gates_Learjet_25_v2r1\\sound\\extra#48 // gauge00=XPGL25v2_Sound!FBGS_XMLSound, 18,5,1,1,SimObjects\\Airplanes\\XP_Gates_Learjet_25_v2r1\\sound\\extra#48 gauge01=XPGLJ25v2!misc_systems, 20,5,1,1
  13. Mark Taylor has posted on Flysimware Face Book a modification to the Aircraft.cfg file, the update is to the pitch and yaw control. from a quick look through the alterations are :- ;Moments of Inertia empty_weight_pitch_MOI = 38000 empty_weight_roll_MOI = 27000 empty_weight_yaw_MOI = 52000 empty_weight_coupled_MOI= 0.0 [gear_warning_system] gear_warning_available = 1 //Normal pct_throttle_limit = 0.2 //Percent throttle that activates warning flap_limit_idle = 0.0 //Flap angle that activates warning at idle flap_limit_power = 15.1 //Flap angle that activates warning at above idle bob
  14. I tried an alternative panel on one of the FlySimWare airplanes and that obscured the switches on the wx gauge. just a thought bob
  15. Your not alone Mike, best way is to sit back and one of your famous local drinks, bob
