  1. I have been having this problem for some time now. As I approach the clouds, They become imposed I guess that is what you would call it. They become separated by rings that are constantly moving as I fly through them. It looks horrible. I have played around with the monitor settings but I can't get rid of them. Thanks for any replies Doug M.
  2. I just received my new computer from Jetline systems and I'm having a problem with the sound in the cockpit fading out when I move a switch. After a few seconds the sound will slowly come back. Has anyone experienced this? Thanks Doug Morlan
  3. I just purchased the PMDG DC-6 for P3Dv4. After assigning all of the flight controls and engine controls through FSUIPC5, everything worked fine except the throttles. I have tried with the gust lock installed and removed. I even tried assigning through P3D controls instead of FSUIPC. I am using the CH throttle quadrant, yoke and pedals. Thank you for any help.

  4. I have VFXCentral installed and today I purchased chase plane. I used VFXCentral to install it and after the install, I clicked on the desktop icon to run it and I got this error: It looks like something unexpected occurred. A log file will be sent to FSFX Packages automatically. Sorry for the inconvenience. Any ideas to get this running? I have it installed in P3Dv4. thanks Doug
  5. Let me try this again. Had FSX and P3Dv3 installed, windows 10. Removed FSX and P3Dv3 because of issues that I caused. Reinstalled P3Dv3 only. Ezdok camera will not work now. Tried migration tool also, no luck.
  6. I haven't used FSX for a while and recently had issues with P3Dv3 because I kept tweaking it. After a clean install, and after running P3d, the first app was Ezdok. It installed ok and the config worked. When I launch P3d, Ezdok will not start. This has been going on for a while. I have the new version(1.18.7). I do notice that in all of my Ezdok folder locations, the exe file is missing the .xml. It should be "exe.xml" I even tried the migration tool. It seems to me something is corrupt, or I'm doing something wrong. thanks for any ideas Doug

    PMDG 747v2 and P3D

    When the 747v2 is released, will it be available for P3D right away or will it only be available for FSX first. I would like to install P3D but I don't want to wait any longer for the 747. Thanks! Doug Morlan

    737 RNAV approach question

    I just did this approach with no problems. Before your initial fix (QWIKE) or (CLFFF), the aircraft needs to be at flaps 1 or more. This will keep the aircraft in VNAV PATH. As you approach LEETS, you should be at flaps 25 for a stable approach and do not set your missed approach alt until your below your FAF of 300 feet. hope this helps!

    [09DEC15] A Whole Lotta 747-400 Goodness!

    I have been with UAL for 31 years now as an aircraft inspector. Out of the entire fleet, I have enjoyed working on the 747. I have had the pleasure of performing inspections through out the aircraft from the nose to the tail, from wing tip to wing tip, inside and out. She is a work of art. Sadly, UAL is slowly phasing out the 747 which is being replaced by the 777 and the 787. I will surely miss them. Thanks to PMDG, I will soon have one of my own!! Doug Morlan
  12. Hi everyone After installing SP1, and running it for one flight, then installing the 300ER, I started getting a fatal error message after exiting FSX. There are no issues with flying the airplane. Everything works beautifully. Once I get the fatal error, it will restart FSX with the default aircraft. I will exit again and it will do so with no problem. I'm running ASN and EZDOK camera. Thanks for any ideas regards Doug

    CTD after landing

    Hi, PMDG 777 FS2CREW runs perfectly when I use it. But after landing, while taxiing, or sometimes I make it to the gate, I get a CTD. Sometimes I even make it to eng shut down. It has been that way for a while. At least I get to do the whole flight. If I don't use it, I will not get a CTD. Any ideas what this may be? regards Doug Morlan

    Thinking About Upgrading to P3D

    Thanks for all of the advise! on my way to P3D!! Doug
  15. I am thinking about removing FSX and installing P3D. My computer: Intel® Core I7-2700 CPU @ 3.50GHz RAM 8.00 GB 64-bit Operating System built from Jetline. Nvidea GeForce GTX 770. Windows 7. I have the PMDG 737 and 777. and I run some FTX sceneries. Thanks for any advise! Doug
  16. Hi Jim, I just downloaded scenery config editor because I have a lot of scenery issues, elevation problems, buildings in the wrong area etc. I have FTX Northern California, New Zealand, and Europe along with numerous add on airports. When I switched regions for the first time, that's when I started to have these issues. The scenery config editor shows approximately 80% of my scenery has errors! and the errors are "path can not be found". Can this be fixed or will I have to completely uninstall FSX and start over? Thank you for any info regards Doug
  17. For quite some time now, I have had issues with add on airport scenery elevation, buildings in the wrong area etc. I currently have fsdreamteam, Flightbeam, Imagine Simulation, FTX Oceana, Europe, and North America. I found out about scenery configuration editor, I installed it and found that I had numerous scenery errors. Approx 80%! The error was (scenery not found). Other than the scenery issues, FSX ran great. I did not get any scenery errors when loading FSX. Then I went into scenery config editor and I double clicked on each and every one of the error files and followed the path to where the file was located. It took me about two hours. Scenery config editor was now clear of all errors. I loaded FSX and as it started, It started to display scenery errors! It took me about five minutes to click through all of the errors! About all of the scenery files could not be found. WHAT HAPPENED! Will I have to do a complete reinstall of FSX? thanks for any info Doug
  18. How do I fix the floating runway and taxi way for NZQN. They are about 20 ' in the air. Thanks Doug
  19. Ok, thanks for the reply regards
  20. Why would FS2Crew Airbus have really nice radio chatter through out the flight while FS2Crew for the PMDG 777 does not. Also the Airbus crew sounds more realistic while the 777 crew sounds robotic. It would be nice to have the background radio chatter for the 777. regards Doug
  21. After installing version 1.1 for the PMDG 777, I cant get anything to work. Before the update, everything was fine. I have reinstalled twice, restarting the computer each time. nothing on the main panel works. I do not use voice control. when I select PA or BR, the panel will show but when I click on a button, the panel disappears, no voice from captain or first officer. thanks for any ideas Doug

    PMDG 777 v 1.1 not working

    Fixed, the INI file was corrupt, working fine now.
  23. I have a question about FS2CREW and FS2CREW Captains set. When I click on FS2CREW, it gives me all of the information about this add on. When I click on the Captains set, it says nothing about what you get with this add on. I did purchase FS2CREW and it runs fine, but I am a little disappointed on how the voices sound robotic. The Aerosoft Airbus comes with FS2CREW and it sounds great! It also has radio chatter. So I guess I was expecting the same thing for the 777. Can anyone tell me more about the Captains set? Are the voices more realistic? does it come with radio chatter? This is my first time using FS2CREW (when I purchased the Areosoft Airbus) two weeks ago. regards Doug Morlan
  24. After installing SP1C for the PMDG 777, shortly after takeoff (flying the 777) FSX shuts down with a message saying that a program quit working and must shut down. It has happened twice now. Has anyone else had an issue with this? No problems before the SP1 install. regards Doug Morlan

Using ASN and Simbrief. It seems to be fine now. The flights the I had issues with were from EHAM to EGLL and KSFO to PHKO. I will post another topic if this happens again. Thank you Doug Morlan
