    I particularly love the medium and long haul IFR flights, but sometimes I also like some small VFR.

    I don't know if it's ChasePlane related, I'm using EZCA. But, if may help, have you turned on auotosave function on FSUIPC if you installed it?

    P3D V4 stutter with the Queen

    Hi Robert,, I'm not nameless, my posts has been signed since the dawn of time, since you made it mandatory for the PMDG support section. Regarding FSUICP, I did not want to criticize the product, quite the contrary. I bought it because I consider essential and I read the manual in the sections that interest me. I just said that having removed the tick on "autosave" the simulator does not stutter anymore, and it did so much more evident using the NGX. That's all.

    P3D V4 stutter with the Queen

    Hi, I had the same problem with NGX, it was due to FSUIPC autosave function (I setted it every 60 secs). Now I totally disabled and stutters are gone!

    REX Sky Force Very First look

    Thanks guys for all comments, I'd to purchase SF3D. Now I'm using ASP4+REX4 TD and Soft Clouds and I'm quite satisfacted. 1) f I want to use SF3D I should give up to Soft Clouds and REX4 (or at least use it only for runway, taxiways or ground texture), correct? 2) ASP4+SF3D could be good coupled in terms of weather rendering? 3) are 3D clouds really modeled and give real immersion?
  6. Hello guys, I ask the experts .... my request is not aircraft specific, even if this case relates to MD11; I'm trying to assing to a joystick button a spoiler detent to increase/decrease speedbtrakes without success. I can only assign "Spoiler ON / OFF" but not incremental notches like for flaps to understand; I see in FSUIPC "Button and Keypresses/FS Control" there is the Spoiler Incr and Decr command but it seems to have no effect, at least on PMDG MD11. Does anyone know where I am wrong or suggest me the correct configuration in FSUIPC? Thanks in advance, Riccardo

    Winds uplink in the FMC

    I think you're right, infact I scroll all FMC pages but didn't find any winds import button. Just found now from .txt file in wx dir: "This folder exists to enable FMC WIND DATA REQUEST functionality, currently available in the PMDG 777 product line." Solved the mistery! Btw, could PMDG improve NGX with this new feature?

    Winds uplink in the FMC

    Are you sure Chris? I recently bought NGX for P3Dv4 and in /PMDG/WX found a file called PMDG-WIND-DATA-REQUEST-readme.txt that explaisn how to import winds uplink. Btw I noted a strange thing, that the file ICAO1ICAO2.wx is automatically created in this dir when I create a fp, I'll try to explain: 1) I open PFPX and create my fp, suppose LIPZLIRF and export for NGX (in its ....\PMDG\FLIGHTPLANS\NGX) and for FSX or P3D format .pln to import in ASN or ASP4. Just now I'm using ASP4 2) I import LIPZLIRF.pln in ASP4 and going into Briefing tab section where I can see all winds aloft data required to create LIPZLIRF.wx file 3) Then when I was going to copy and paste section required as per PMDG-WIND-DATA-REQUEST-readme.txt I noted that file LIPZLIRF.wx was automatically been created. So, who created this file? I suppose NGX extracting the correct section from LIPZLIRF.rte, don't think that PFPX or ASP4 can create it (also because I didn't specify any path for that dir). Can someone solve the "mistery"? I must confess I haven't been read the introduction manual of the latest version of NGX after purchased P3D4 version, I own also the FSX version but remember as you Chris that NGX can't import winds uplink. If this is a new feature will be very appreciated, and it's a shame that we can't do the same for MD11 where route are longer than 737.

    Winds uplink in the FMC

    Hi, I'm interested on how to import winds uplink in 737 NGX using ASN or ASP4. I haven't understand the correct method to import winds aloft in 737, can someone explain a step by step passages? Maybe in the last version of NGX is this feature already available? EDIT: no chanche for MD11 at all? Many thanks, Ric

    VA with save/restore flight system?

    Does anyone know a VA with save/restore flight system? For many reason I can't complete medium/long flight in a shot, especially flight with PMDG MD11; so I'm looking for an acars system that can save my flight and restore it to continue and eventually finish it. thanks so much in adavance, Riccardo
  15. Hi guys, now I have the same problem with VC on MD11, no shadows displayed. ForceVCShadowMap=1 is present in my FSX.cfg infact in all others aircrafts shadows are present. So I suppose I have to use ToolBox.exe to activate interior .MDL but I can't run it: this is the error message I got Fsx Install Dir Not Set (0). System Error Was 2 Any help? May this can help.....I uninstalled Steam, made a cleanup registry and reinstalled FSX Boxed, reinstalled DX Scenery Fixer and Clouds Shadows and all other addons. All works perfectly but no shadows are displayed in PMDG MD11. I can't verify in NGX because I don't use it anymore in FSX, only P3D. But I suppose is a PMDG related model issue. Thanks in advance, Ric
