  1. Ark, No I haven't. If I use these sliders, then I'm assuming the other five aircraft sound levels will be affected. These other aircraft all have file changes you can make to adjust the volume. I'm just asking if there is a way to adjust sound levels in the Lear? Mike
  2. I fly every flight with Radar Contact. My only problem with the Lear 35A is the cockpit sound levels, especially engine and possibly wind noise, seem to be set so high I really have trouble hearing ATC. Is there a way for me to lower these levels? Mike Nicholson, Jetline Systems PC, 4.20 Intel 4 Core i7-7700k CDU, Nividia GTX 1060 6GB card, 32722 mbs memory, Windows 10- 64bit, Prepar3D v4.5
  3. Hi Bert, I was just loading the aircraft, figuring I would check the PFD one more time, and looked at the the GTN MFD. Daylight in the Swamps! I just set the RA into one of the user fields and there I was. I remember the first full scale with a RA. It was as great as sliced bread. I still think for scan, it should be in the PFD though. Take care, Mike
  4. I just reinstalled the Phenom 300 after a long break from it. It is flying fine, especially with the F1GTN. In searching around I'm led to believe there is a Radar Altimeter. However, I have not been able to find it. First ? Is there a Radar Altimeter? If there is, where is it? If there isn't, is there away to install one? Thanks, Mike Nicholson
  5. Ray, I have had UAC turned off for ages. I'm going to turn this problem over to my IT guy first. This problem is occurring with non flight sim programs that are on my D drive too. With the exception of RC, I do not have any problem with any other flight sim program. If I haven't then removed this problem, I will remove P3D from the Program file. Also, I will have my IT guy look at Jim's advice about getting rid of Windows Defender. I now see how you can do that. Winter is on the way, and I'll have more time to play with this stuff as the weather will be less conducive to flying my model airplanes. You all take care, MIke
  6. Ray, I have rcv4x and rcv4 installed as separate folders on my c drive. I hate to admit it, but I have P3d installed in Programs from my c drive. When I installed 4.4 I just let it go where Prepar3d wanted to go. Most of my non flight sim stuff is on another drive. I don't understand why I have the two rcv4 folders. I have debated on deleting the rcv4 folder. Also, it seems Windows 10 can download an update at any time. You can control when it wants to restart, but other wise you are at MS's mercy. I saw the other day, that I could turn off the updates for up to35 days. I did that a couple of days ago, and since turning it off I can open P3d, Quicken and all the other programs I couldn't without turning my Anti virus off. Have to go, my wife has summoned me to dinner. Mike
  7. Hi Ray, I have executed exceptions for all my Flt Sim stuff. They don't seem to effect my problem at all. Mike
  8. For some time now I have had this problem with Real Time Protection (RTP). I just am curious if anyone else has had it, and have they had any luck resolving it. All my flights are cross countries controlled by RC. For a long time, I have not been able to open P3Dv4.4 and now 4.5 with out first going to Windows Defender and turning off RTP anti-virus. I never turn any of the others on. In Addition, I am unable to open RC, Quicken, Revo Uninstaller, and a few other programs without first turning off the RTP anti-virus. I always do it when downloading and installing any flight sim program. The problem is that my flight sim and RC work fine when I turn off RTP, but it does not always stay off. For one reason or another it just turns itself back on. Microsoft tells you in Windows Defender that you can turn it off, but it will reactivate at some point. All I want to do is turn it off and have it stay off for a flight. I have recently started turning my eithernet off for a flight, but it appears the anti virus just turns itself back on by itself. Other than the problems described above, my PC is working like a well oiled machine. RC is the only program that I'm having a problem with. And every time, RC quits cold, I get a Runtime 76 or 75 (I can't remember which now), and when I open Windows Defender, RTP is back on in all its Glory. Any comments will be appreciated.

  9. I have not been able to find the answer in the REX forums tonight, so I thought I'd just ask it here. Is their a P3Dv4.5 WX Advantage Radar release out for the Falcon 50?

  10. I just upgraded from 4.4 to 4.5. I'm somewhat surprised that 4.5 seems to be a fair amount better. For some reason the scenery files look a lot better, and so far I have held off installing any add on textures. I kind of like not adding all these huge programs. Now, my question is: Has anyone used ASCA with just the P3D 4.5 weather engine. I always set my own weather, and I kind of think just using the P3d weather settings works pretty well for me. I would like to use some Cloud program though to sort of spice my clouds up a little. Any comment or advice is appreciated.

  11. Hi Ray, It seems like when I use a program for so long, I fail to check the manual. I had the interact with AI checked, but I also had the AI chatter checked by mistake. I flew an IFR flight this morning with my DC-6 without AI Chatter checked. The approach phase worked fine although we just shot an ILS Rwy18 approach into KDAY, Dayton, OH so that is not as busy as a lot of places. We'll continue to work this out. As always, your advice is appreciated. Mike
  12. Hi Ray, I only have A-1 Chatter checked, and I don't get much chatter. I'm not sure when you ask for a %; however, this morning I was on an IFR cross country from KMSN, Dane Co Regl-Truax into KSDF, Louisville Intl. It was better. Approach responded fairly quick. When I hit 4 I got a stand by. After more time than you would expect, I didn't get the window to verify the approach, but directly got the window to select the runway. Turned out it was a VOR Approach, but I had no trouble just flying the ILS. For the first time, Approach handed me off to the Tower at the OM. Tower answered right away, cleared me to land and handed me off to ground after landing. I know P3D says you do not need to reinstall addon programs, but I have always run into miner problems and it seems it is a lot just easier to do a fresh reinstall with several programs, RC being one I have always reinstalled. I have always thought in the past that RC has improved as you use it. This has really been true this time. I will try not using the AI Chatter next flight. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Take care, Mike
  13. I recently had to uninstall and reinstall P3Dv4.4. Part of this was having to reinstall RC. I went ahead and downloaded a fresh download. Also downloaded and installed the latest FSUIPC5 and MakeRunways. Everything seemed to be slow for the first couple of flights, and then I got a Runtime 53 error, which after correcting, speeded everything up until being handed off to Approach. Then I got another window, not a runtime, which after google caused me to reinstall my FSUICP5 and Make Runways files. I still have standbys and delays during the Approach phase although it has improved. I have always hit 4 and requested the whole approach. It's still slow, but this morning I was on an ILS into Denver, and RC, at the OM, directed me to contact the Tower. The Tower freq came up right away, and I hit 1 to contact them, but I was about down to 500' by the time they came on and cleared me to land. I'm getting ready to reinstall RC, but thought I'd check with you guys before doing that. Any pointers here?

  14. I started with P3Dv4.4 a year ago last December. Got all my addons installed and everything has just been great. I was using Win 10 and Foxfire. A couple of months ago I started having problems with P3D and discovered there were updates to P3D. I update everything else, but didn't have a clue P3D had to be updated. I discovered this P3D update requirement when I started opening P3D and if I clicked on the Options button, P3D would CTD. I installed the latest Client plus and now am up to date and everything has been running fine. A month ago, I just got overloaded with Foxfire and Dashlane password manager, and let my IT guy install Google Chrome. Everything has been going pretty well with P3D, but I soon discovered that Chrome would not open until I shut down Win 10 Anti virus. I could turn it back on with no problem after Chrome was open. Also, I have in general shut down my Anti virus (including everything for P3D excluded from anti virus scans), while flying my flight sim. Today, I was setting up a cross country and went to open P3D, and nothing happens. It doesn't even blink. It's just in in-active. So, any comments about why this has happened will be appreciated, Mike Nicholson, Jetline Systems PC, 4.20 Intel 4 Core i7-7700k CDU, Nividia GTX 1060 6GB card, 32722 mbs memory, Windows 10- 64bit, Prepar3D v4.4
