  1. They are two completely separate programs, so one should not affect the other. However, depending on what add-ons you have, there is a small possibility, that a particular add-on files are shared between the two and may be affected.
  2. If you don't see the numbers moving in the CRJ Throttle Calibration area, when you move your throttles, check to see if your Throttles are configured in MSFS under Throttle Axis 1 and Throttle Axis 2 and not under Throttle Axis 1 (0-100%) and Throttle Axis 2 (0-100%). If they are, just create a new profile for CRJ. I don't know why it matters, but it worked for me. I found this solution on the Aerosoft forum when I could not get my Thrustmaster Airbus throttles to work in the CRJ. Good luck to you.
  3. Try manually configuring it by using the drop down arrow and selecting "Joystick L-Axis X" and do the same for Throttle 2, manually select Joystick L-Axis Y. I got the same error as you until I just selected it manually instead of moving the throttle to detect it.
  4. I would double check your axis binding again in the control options area of MSFS. Throttle 1 Axis should be Joystick L-Axis X do not check the reverse axis box Throttle 2 Axis should be Joystick L-Axis Y again do not check the reverse axis box if configured correctly you should see a white slider move back and forth when you move both throttle axis. Also make sure in the Sensitivity settings that reactivity is 0 or close to 0 for both axis. Then in the CRJ calibration you should see the numbers move when you move the Throttle. select Dual Axis for Throttle type and , and reverse Axis on On. (Throttle hardware has reverser axis) Good luck
  5. I also had problems with my TCA Throttle. Was not recognized by the plane. Not even when trying to calibrate as the instructions say. After some research, found post on Aerosoft forum. If using the FBW A320, your TCA Throttle may be configured in the MSFS option controls as "Axis Throttle 1 (0-100%) and "Axis Throttle 2 (0-100%). If this is the case, the CRJ may not see it. Create a new profile for the TCA Throttle and bind the AXIS to "Axis Throttle 1" and "Axis Throttle 2" (the option without the (0-100%). Once I did that, I was able to move the throttles in the CRJ and calibrate it. Works great now.
  6. I don't blame you for being mad. You can go to his website and under contacts, you will find his support forum. On the registered support forum, you can download updates in the MSFS area. He did come out with a SimAddons manager for P3Dv5. Hope he comes out with one for MSFS, so we don't have to chase down updates. Good luck
  7. Yes. Simaddons, (Ralph) does seem to have strong protections on his scenery. If you ever need to re-install, you have to email him for new registration numbers. They only work one time. I have had to do it a few times when I upgraded my PC and re-installing Simaddons and P3D. Its a real pain, but he does respond with a day.
  8. Looks like it, but it seems I have a newer version of CYHZ. Mine shows ver 1.1.47
  9. Hello Manny Interesting problem you have there. I have all the SimAddons for MSFS and TNCM and do not have that checkerboard problem. However, I do have a weird white strips that run down the length of the runway if I have my Zinertek Enhanced airport Graphics loaded. (Thanks himmelhorse for the tip).
  10. Yes, your VRAM is your Video Random Access Memory on your video card. P3D v5 uses Direct X-12. I am no expert on the VRAM, but from what I have gathered, Direct x-12 processes memory differently and more efficiently. But does not monitor if you are getting close to your max video ram on your graphic's card. So if you crank up the settings, and use complex scenery, airplanes, you can easily exceed your video ram. When that happens, P3D will CTD with an OOM error. My setup, my VRAM runs around 9-10Gb's when running P3D, (my video card has 11GbVRAM) and if I don't start my WMR for VR and P3D in a certain order, I will OOM before the sim loads completely.
  11. I have never experienced a CTD while switching back and forth from VR to 2D and this is the first I have heard of this particular CTD. I also have the G2. Might be a driver issue. The only CTD I am experiencing on a regulars base now, is when flying the Fly By Wire A320nx, only when in VR, and only when pressing one of the button in the overhead. Usually happens when I turn off the APU, or Blead air. I don't have any CTD when flying in 2D or with any other plane in 3D. Only with the A320Nx and only in VR. Strange and very disappointing, as its currently the main aircraft I want to fly in MSFS. I agree, very frustrating after spending time setting up everything and CTD.
  12. I get that morphing / popping effect occasionally, Doesn't really bother me that much. If I had a choice, I would prefer not to have it, but it definitely does not make the sim unusable for me. I guess everyone has a different tolerance level, when it comes to immersion. The fact that your sitting in a chair flying a computer is the biggest immersion killer. I have read, that if you have a high speed internet connection, try disabling your rolling cache. Since it does not have to pull the info to the disk, then read it, it may free up some CPU cycles, preventing some stutters and popping effect. I have not tried this, so it might be a bunch of bull, but it may be worth a try.
  13. Try deleting your rolling cache if you have that turned on in your MSFS settings.
  14. My Process using MSFS (non steam version) and using the WMR Open XR. 1. Launch Mixed Realty Portal 2. Launch MSFS 3. When ready to go into VR. "Ctrl + Tab" That's it. Note, that if you have the headset on, then the desktop is not active. (you will see the blue ribbon at the top, saying Press "Windows +Y key". So if you try and use the "Ctrl + Tab" to switch between VR and desktop and you see this blue bar at the top, the command may not work. You can press the Windows +Y key or what I do, just take my headset off and point in down or set it down. It seems to know if your not wearing it and the blue bar will go away. I think its just some protection, so that other apps and programs on your PC are not activated accidentally using keyboard commands while wearing the Headset. More notes: (MSFS can be configured to work directly with WMR. No Steam setup required ( if using the non steam version of MSFS). I do not launch Steam or Steam VR. ) To pull up Open XR. just type "Open XR" in the search box in the bottom left. next to the start menu button. If "Ctrl +Tab" does not work, make sure in MSFS, that the keyboard profile is on default. If not, and you are using your own profile, you may need to add the "Ctrl + Tab" keyboard assignment to your profile in the VR settings. Welcome to VR.
