  1. I have had this installed for a little while and didn't notice until today when I tried to do a medium haul flight into the place that the ILS RWY 30 is broken, I am not sure exactly what it is, but the glideslope is wrong, it seems like its way lower than it should be. Anyone else seen this, or know how to fix it? Cheers,
  2. And what version are you using, and is it generic or do you have anything installed over it?? FYI, I COMPLETELY uninstalled the scenery thinking something got corrupted, then reinstalled it... It made no difference, still buildings on the airport area, not only that but I think the ground textures were the wrong type for the airport as well. SO, I figured ok, enough of this, and I again uninstalled the scenery, then went into Program Data, made SURE all remnants of scenery were deleted. Finally, then installed my old scenery which was, then restarting the sim, and sure enough, KSNA now is clean and looks as it should. So, there is something wrong with the scenery, of course I asked about this over on the P3D forum, and have heard nothing but crickets. I have been thinking about buying Orbx Global, I'm wondering if this scenery error would still occur, after all it seems like an autogen/landclass error and not texture. Opinions??
  3. The other day I decided to do a GA flight in SoCal, happen to pick KSNA, and was annoyed to see houses or some kind of buildings scattered about the airport landscape. I am using 3.4.14 but I can't say for sure that this wasn't there before as I am not in the area that often. Can anyone else check if they see this or if something is corrupt with my system. I actually uninstalled 3.1 and installed 3.4 from scratch. Any suggestions on what to do about it? Thanks,
  4. All this fretting about subscriptions, in the first place if you looked carefully at the article its for "Enterprise" customers, not for home or prosumer, I think people just love to hate MS Further, subs surround us, there is a cost to doing business, see how you feel if your paycheck stopped because your employer just hated having to "subscribe" to your expertise, ahem
  5. Its funny reading this thread, after so many years it seems like the same type issues happen over and over again with Wilco, it used to drive me mad how it "almost" works, er except for the ILS or except for the altitude control.... Clearly they need to get a new gauge programmer And people try SO hard to be positive in some ways, they don't deserve it, they put products out that never get fixed, they just move on to the next thing to rip people off with. The only answer is to steer clear of them.
  6. Could it be that you have the tiller set? I've flown the BBS A330 off and on for a year, and sure its not perfect, but I've never seen a problem with the rudder, I have Saitek pedals, and have done manual approaches without any problem.
  7. I also went through a complete uninstall of FSX Gold and SE, then made sure everything was cleaned up. Finally went back to FSX-SE, this time did all the simconnect installs, and finally installed the MD11, 747, and the 777. The MD11 Dome now works, as well as the 777 Could be it was just that I had installed one of the simconnects, not sure.
  8. I don't see how it could be an 8.1 issue, because FSX Gold installed on it worked fine. It is interesting that it worked on 7 though Jim. Do you have anything changed in the SE install, I did nothing, just installed it, no tweeks or changes?? Oh wait, the one thing i did was update simconnect from the SDK.
  9. I recently build a new Haswell machine, and figured I might make it easy on myself and buy SE. It has 8.1 Pro on it, and after the OS install I just installed FSX-SE, then I installed the MD11 and 747. Now, its true that it MOSTLY seems to work, but I ran into something funny that made me suspicious. I was doing a night flight, and as I started to set things up I went to hit the DOME light and it didn't work, odd because other lighting worked. I also find that SE is prone to those random sim crashes that I so hated and had finally gotten rid of over a few years on Win 7. SOOO, much as I hated taking the time, I completely uninstalled Steam and FSX-SE, and reinstalled FSX Gold, and then the MD-11 again.... you guessed it, the DOME light worked fine , and at least so far no crashes. I'm reporting this so PMDG and anyone else with the MD-11 can check it out. I do believe that SE is better performing due to the recompile and all.... but something is not completely stable here and nothing drives me more crazy than an 8+ hour long haul that crashes in the last hour :( Here's hoping it can all be sorted out...
  10. Thanks for this guide Ryan. Just happened to finally buy the 570 today,this was an upgrade from a 275, used *******' web app and followed yourguide, and ahhhhhh FSX bliss :( So, now I'm really ready, bring on the NGX!
  11. Between Nick and John can't you guys please find somewhere else to put the files? The avsimlibrary still is not up and I would really like to get my hands on this.Thanks,
