  1. awesome to see the content that beta testers are posting. one thing I noticed while watching some of the videos - with full flaps extended, and approaching for arrival, I would have thought that there would been movement visible in the flaps due to buffeting that typically happens in this situation. perhaps it is already being modeled, and I just haven't seen severe enough weather to cause it to be seen? regards, peter belbin
  2. Andrew, thank you for the pointer. I see on their web site, that they do not support PMDG products, at least not for the 747. I'm definitely interested in this, to add another layer of usability. which of this type are known/supported for use with the PMDG aircraft??
  3. Appologies if this topic has been answered already, but: will the 747v2 have any kind of improved or existing support for touch tablets being used to perform such functions as the FMC? this being able to be on a dedicated, touch capable device, would be a very nice capability. regards, peter belbin.
  4. Hello Rob, thank you for the update. it's looking very nice indeed! will the rotation of the stabilizers in accordance to adjustment of trim settings be modeled this time around? I was disappointed to find that this was omitted previously. I'm looking forward to the new Queen of the Skies. best regards, peter belbin.
  5. well, and here I was thinking this was some sort of condition they got in if you flew for too long without an oil change or some other form of 'maintenance'.
  6. thank you for replying.>If you are talking about weather on VATSIM you can use several>programs not related to PMDG to get real, accurate weather on>the network.>such as? can you suggest some...?
  7. ok, so I've been saving my last position and resuming from that saved situation a number of times, and I see that my engines are all belching black smoke.am I doing (or not doing) something that's causing this?if I start the sim out with a fresh start (as opposed to loading a previously saved flight), I don't see this.do tell.
  8. the TFC button works great when I'm connected to VATSIM. very cool, very useful.how about the weather?or, is there something that already works, and I just haven't figured it out yet?
  9. first off, my name is Peter Belbin.Ok, if you've read my other post about FSX+Accel and theinability to fuel the aircraft.....since I have not heard anything as yet about that from thisforum, I thought I'd try the nasty uninstall/reinstall.well, I bought both the 747-400X and the FS2Crew add-on, and,installed the 1.01 update.so, now, I've managed to uninstall everything except theinitial FS2Crew.it appears that having added the 1.01 update to FS2Crew hasmessed up the uninstall of the 1.0 part.here are a series of images that show what I'm experiencing:1. this is how it looks before I ask to uninstall:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/185748.jpg2. yep, that's what I want to do, but, notice the 1.01 versionnumber? that update has already been uninstalled. thisshould be uninstalling 1.0...http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/185749.jpg3. ok, now it's complaining...http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/185750.jpg4. and again....http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/185751.jpg5. success (or that's what I'm lead to believe)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/185753.jpg6. until I look at the list of apps, and IT'S STILL THERE!!!http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/185752.jpgthe process can be repeated as many times as you like - itmakes not difference.

  11. yes, indeed, it *is* an NVIDIA card.....so this is a 'known problem'?regards,peter belbin
  12. well, after turning off dx10 preview, I now see the tail is illuminated.interesting.what next?it is supposed to work with dx10 isn't it?regards,peter belbin
  13. are you connected in some way with this tool other than being a happy user?andare you saying it works well from experience with just adjusting the default size/location?it seems that this tool is somewhat more focussed on manipulating guages into new variants...please advise.regards,peter
  14. hey, for helping to track down issues, do the pmdg aircraft (747X in particular) have the simulated equivalent of the flight data recorder found on the 'real thing'?if not, why not? surely the value of the real one would be just as useful in the simulated case - being able to understand what is happening after the fact.if the sim has such a thing, I should think that this would be very useful for giving the developers the ability to look into how a particular issue cropped up.please advise.regards,peter belbin.
  15. I may be able to do that next time this issue surfaces.regards,peter.
  16. hello guys, I appreciate the feedback this thread is getting.for what it's worth:a) I'm using Vista x64 with the DX10 preview enabled.:( I see that the little lights in the tail are in fact coming on when they are supposed to.so, to clarify:even though the lights themselves are 'on', the light that is being cast has absolutely no effect on the lighting level on the stabilizer itself, along with any artwork that may be there.please advise.regards,Peter Belbin.
  17. Rob,I certainly do appreciate your willingness to help a fellow flier, and I did not gather from your post that you were not a PMDG staffer.Sorry about that.it's rather an easy leap to make given the way the avsim forum titles are set up 'commercial support' gives the impression that you're really talking with people that are pmdg staffers.also, since you were using a very corporate PMDG looking tag, it's not too surprising.again, thank's for your help, but I'm still wondering what it was that caused the inner valves to stay closed.regards,Peter Belbin.
  18. ok, 'should' is one thing, but, what I'm talking about is where, after having landed at egll, shut down the engines, refueled, restarted the engines, takeoff and then flaps up, I still ended up with the inner x-feed valves set the wrong way.now, until I figured out how to raise the protective covers on the inner buttons, I didn't have the ability to change these inner valve settings.so, tell me, what happened?what series of events could have caused the valves to be set the wrong way?and please don't tell me 'it shouldn't have happened', because it did.you guys have the code for this aircraft, and should be able to understand the various scenarios that might happen that could lead to the inner x-feed valves ending up being set the wrong way.please advise in a helpful manner.
  19. is there a way to cause FSX or PMDG to 'remember' the size and location of the various panels?I like the panels to be a certain size and location, which is of course, not how they are by 'default'.it's rather annoying to have to re-size and position the various panels every time a new flight is started.help!
  20. ok, I figured it out. open the button cover before trying to push the button!!doh!I'm still a little puzzled as to why the valves would end up in a closed position after having landed, refueled, and then taking off again.weird.
  21. if there's a bit of documentation that explains this, please let me know, but:for some reason, sometimes, after having fueled, the 4 valves which control fuel flow between tanks (x-flow valves I guess) are set so that fuel will not flow.ok, so, use the buttons to control the valves you say?well, half easy, half hard, it seems.the two outer buttons on the overhead control panel are functional for the two outer valves, no problem, however, the inner buttons are non-functional for some reason.why is that, and, how do I control the inner set of fuel x-feed valves?please advise...
  22. I like flying the Qantas painted 747-400X, but am surprised that the logo doesn't get lit up at night when the logo switch is most definitely turned on.what's up with that?
  23. Hello,I tried to visually observe the effect of the elevator trim being adjusted, expecting to see rotation of the whole elevator, but I am not seeing this.I was under the impression that the elevator should be rotating when the trim is adjusted.Is this 'normal', a bug, or user error please?for what it's worth, the effect of the elevator while flying is quite noticable, just not visually observable.platform: Vista x64, FSX+accellerationregards,peter belbin.
  24. John,for what it's worth:I had an issue with flights where, shortly after landing, I found that FSX would just lock up and die.I'm flying connected to vatsim (using fscopilot and fsinn) with some virtual airline tracking software using fsuipc.it turns out that I also (for the virtual airline) installed teamspeak, and let fscopilot know about it (or is it fsinn?), in any case, it seems that shortly after landing (almost always while taxiing to the gate), it was trying to use teamspeak to tune into the company frequency or something, and at that point was causing things to come to an abrupt stop.after deconfiguring the ability to use teamspeak from the fscopilot/fsinn side of things, I no longer get those nasty stops.it was probably pilot error in terms of how the fscopilot/fsinn stuff was configured, so don't take this as condemnation of the software - I just haven't figured out how to configure it properly as yet.regards,peter.
