  1. I can confirm I had the crash while loading approach too. I honestly don't remember what airport I was flying to, it was one in Japan, and went to load it up and it crashed. I was flying direct to the airport, then loaded up the procedures and was scrolling through the list and thats where it crashed. I know thats not totally helpful but it is not an isolated incident with that airport since I had it to. I am using the updated FSareo data.
  2. I can totally understand your opinion on the navigraph charts. Now that said I would say probably 90% of the time in the real world a light twin like this would not be flying into the large airports, for example someone owning this plane would not fly into JFK, they would fly toteterboro. They wouldn't fly into LAX, they would go to Van Nuys. I think that is what Sean the developer was building this plane for, not so much flying into the JFKs and LAX. Currently there are work arounds to the sids/stars that Rudi has explained in his videos, and in other threads it has been said Navigraph is coming, but there are some issues with it. As Rudi hinted at some of the smaller airports aren't in navigraph charts, so they wouldn't be in the G1000 database. Yes that will help some users wanting to do the big airports, but it will hurt other users wanting to fly into the smaller airports. Now all of that said about navigation, this plane is something special, the flight dynamics are amazing. IMO it has the most realistic near stall feel of any plane I've flown in flight sim. The sounds, the buffeting, it is very well done. Now that said I do have some things I would like to see in the future, my number 1 item, which may already work with a full version of FSUIPC, is I would like to have physical buttons for the g1000. Yes I know the realsimgear is out there, but I don't want to spend $1500 on new hardware. I want to spend $150 on basically a fancy switch box that I can turn all the knobs on the g1000s on. It doesn't exist so I know I will have to make my own which I'm fine with but currently I cant figure out a way to assign buttons in the g1000 to keys, so if I can't currently do that, I can't assign it to a button box I'm going to build. That is a very niche use case so I know it may never come, but I would like to see it. I am still going to enjoy flying this plane a lot. I fly on FSEconomy and this is going to be my new plane of choice, I also am planning on doing an around the world flight in FSeconomy, in this plane. I think that will be a blast. Just to sum up..please don't let the lack of navigraph charts stop you from experiencing this amazing add on. I have some of the a2a planes, PMDG planes, areosoft, carenado. It is one of the best, if not the best, out there and I can't wait to see what else Sean at Vertx is going to do with this plane, and what his next ones are.
  3. So I have been following this plane for a while, but I just went through the setup and tweaked a few of my sim settings as recommended in the manual and just a quick flight around the pattern checking views in chaseplane etc. Holy cow. This plane is amazing. I was never lucky enough to fly any of the real air planes but this is something special. I have some real world experience, soloed but didnt quite make it to my PPL before I had to stop due to funds. I have flown some of the a2a planes and I'm gonna be honest this plane just feels excellent flying. The stall buffeting, the sound, the slight shake in the airplane(I disabled all chase plane motion effects I've never been a fan of those) that is the most realistic stall warnings I've had in a sim...ever. I can't wait to really dive into this thing, there is a lot to learn with the avionics but this plane is awesome.
  4. Chaseplane is an awesome program. You can move your viewpoint around using controls inside of chaseplane, then save your view then either scroll through those views, or assign a specific view to a specific button. I like it because you can actually move your viewpoint around so for example if you want a full screen view of the MFD in the DA62 you can move your viewpoint there so in the real plane it would be like your head would be right above the throttles.
  5. it did say Friday night into saturday europe time, so I wouldn't expect it before 2-3 USA EST time if my math is right. That said I'm right with everyone else here refreshing this page and the website waiting for a buy button.
  6. @rudi0310 I wanted to say thanks so much for your videos. I have done some video editing before and it is a LOT of work and you did a great job with them. They have helped so much with me feeling comfortable hopping into this plane and at least getting some of the basics going right off the bat. I wasn't flying on flightsim with the realair planes came out. I took a multi year break from FS for a while and I'm frustrated with how great those planes sound and that I'm not able to get them. Then here comes this DA62, I'm so excited for it. I have been flying on FSEconomy for a while and I am looking forward to using the DA62 on there. I have also been planning on doing a world tour flight in a small GA plane, and I think this DA62 is going to probably be the bird I do it in. Great work on the plane Sean, and for the other add on developers this is the way to release a plane, have it 90% of the way there, start talking about it a couple of months, not years, in advance. Show the real plane doing real things in the pre release stage, and then release it when you say your going to. Yes delays happen sometimes but a week is much better than months. Can't wait for tomorrow! edit: One question. I am still on p3d v4.3 do I need to update to 4.4 for this plane or will it work on 4.3?
  7. I do have FSUIPC, but it was unregistered but I solved the issue. For future refrence I did a couple of things at once and one of these fixed it. I updated my FSUIPC turns out it was out of date by 1 version, not sure how that happened since it was a fresh download, but it was. I added my registration to FSUIPC also. More importantly and Bobs thought got me thinking. the ACARS software for my VA does an autosave on flight progress, I turned that off, and one of the above seemed to fix the issue. Glad its working now!
  8. Hey everyone, I am just getting back into the sim world after being away for a few years with p3d, and I went in with two feet. Purchased the PMDG NGX and active sky 2016. I had used them back on FSX, a few years ago but decided to make the switch to p3d. Well I may be regretting that. I am having a problem that I'm worried I wont be able to fix without hours of diagnosing and reinstalling programs. First off the basics, Running p3d 3.4 on a windows 10 64 bit machine with i7 5820K @3.3 GHZ, 16 GB Ram, dual Nvidia 980s(running in NON SLI mode for p3d), P3d has the NGX Active sky, ezdok, and my virtual airline ACARS software. Various sim connect things, AS connect and FSUIPC for the ACARS software. I am running the latest versions of all of the add ons, as I just downloaded them this week. The Problem: can be intermittent with no real pattern. yep the most fun ones to diagnose. The entire program hangs. Not a stutter, not a glitch, hang. simulator pauses, get the spinning wheel, then a few seconds later not responding pops up(running in window mode) then it fixes itself and we are back flying. Whole thing lasts about 10 seconds. It happens every once in a while with any plane I am flying, but I have mostly been flying the PMDG NGX. It has happened with other aircraft when I was trying to figure out if it was just the NGX. Now here is the real kicker, it happens in the menu in the game as well, for example if I go into options while flying it will happen. It happened when I went to go change aircraft to test a different airplane. It doesn't mater if I have active sky open or closed, ACARS software open or closed, doesn't mater, still happens. It happening every 10 min or so I could live with, but today it happened on approach where there was some heavier weather. Game would go for 5 seconds, then hang, then go for 5 seconds then hang. I shut down all of my open add ons(active sky, and ACARS, and even changed the weather to clear, with no change at all. I bet it is add on related and may just have to bite the bullet and reinstall the whole thing, adding one at a time to see where I have the issue, but I would really not like to do that. I will have to test it for about an hour each add on I install. Anyone have any advice or suggestions before I go down that path? Thanks Also: Is there somewhere that I can check all of the versions of the sim connect and fsuipc, basically everything loading into the sim, in one place? And where would that be?
