  1. Hi Simbol No hardware changes at all. Running latest updates on Windows 10 Pro. I'm working so don't have desktop pc on to send details on key but will do later. I'll try running app again after the shut down to see if it deactivates again. Chris
  2. Hi Simbol A couple of nights ago I have run the app and it starts then says it must be activated. I enter my details and it then starts fine but on running it again tonight I am getting the same error message. After cancelling the error it downloaded the latest update so I will try again and enter my details. Regards Chris Ibbotson
  3. Thank you I will attempt to do that this evening. A user on the PMDG forum has published a workaround on how to edit values of the fx files to increase the brightness. I did a quick test on one and it worked but I have not had time to tweak fully. Chris
  4. That really is a shame it doesnt brighten them. There are posts on the PMDG forum with others have major problems and PMDG say its down to the reflective properties on ground textures. Some places it is not too bad but other places I can see nothing in front of the aircraft - its jet black. I have adjusted my HDR settings with EA on and off, I have also tested it with Envshade on or off. Problem has existed well before my recent purchase of Envshade. Monitor is 100% accurately calibrated using a Datapro Spyder 4 Pro device, the screen brightness is set to a value of 120 cd/m2 which reflects the ambient light levels of the room (device measures the light during its calibration). I dont adjust any nVidia settings because the calibration hardware does that and it creates a colour profile. I have switched to the LED lights as I do see they are brighter but on some airports like EIDW they just are not bright enough. The only way around it is to turn m monitor brightness up to 100% rather than around 65% which it needs to be at to be accurate. Other aircraft lights are fine, even your own AI Lights Reborn Pro are nice and bright Regards Chris
  5. Hi there, I have been considering purchasing this addon for the NGXu as I have been having issues with very dim landing and taxi lights and PMDG appear to not be fixing it for the many who report it on their forums. Does Immersion V2 enhance and brighten the lights or does it only add effects when its foggy, rainy or flying through clouds? I need a way of making the lights brigher at night on the runways and taxiways. Will this product do that? Regards Chris Ibbotson
  6. Ive also seen black squares using the default F-35. Some AIG models are also displaying it. It doesnt always happen and I currently have EA off but cant remember if it shows with it off or not Regards Chris Ibbotson
  7. If you select the Weather tab in the options you will see the error message "Cloud layers cannot overlap, please enter a tops value less than xxxx" yoou will see Active Sky has created two cloud layers which overlap in altitude. I dont know how to post a screen shot on here. Hifi are aware of this problem. Regards Chris Ibbotson
  8. Unsure what you mean because Device Hung crashes ARE in P3Dv4 and have been for many years. I started getting them on my 1080ti from v4.2 I think a few years ago. Chris
  9. Do MK Studios even have a support system as I contacted them on Thursday about the issues of Runway 28 still existing and they have not replied in any shape or form? Yes I can make it work using ADE but I shouldn't have to do that. Their website has a simple contact form, no forums or support ticket system from what I can see. Chris
  10. Hi guys I thought Id chip in here after buying MK-Studios Dublin a couple of weeks ago. When I got it the current version was 1.01a which included the so called fix for AI aircraft not taking off on Runway 28. They either stopped at the hold short and remained there or moved onto the threshold and got stuck there resulting in all landing aircraft to go-around. I tried some tweaks mentioned here and managed to get it to sort of work better but not all the time. I was using UTL but with FLAI aircraft injected into it. Version 1.02 has just come out so I uninstalled 1.01a, installed 1.02 but still had the same problem, I disabled the tweaks I had done in ADE by renaming all the EIDW files it had created. I also removed FLAI as I had noticed I often got ntdll crashes. Still the same problem. The first aircraft might take off fine but then all others just freeze. Going to contact the developer 😞 Chris
  11. Website works for me but not PTA, it requests an activation which it says has failed. Chris
  12. I'm puzzled how this works to stop long pauses because it's the SIM requesting the active scenery library be scanned rather than something Windows is doing. I'll give it a shot though my long pause locations have moved since v4.4 They were in a few repeatable locations where the SIM would completely stop for at least 8 seconds if I had all my scenery active. Same occured even with every setting on Mon or switched off. I since started using a scenery configuration editor. Will do no harm testing this I guess Chris
  13. I'm fairly new to Chaseplane but had set up some cameras on a few planes, had to reinstall my sim month or so ago after formatting my system and no settings or cameras were re-imported when I reinstalled Chaseplane etc. It did confuse me as I too believed it was all linked to your account. Chris
  14. It should be available if you click on the legacy link on the download page Chris
