  1. Thank you JWvdH, hadn’t noticed those extra buttons! Pete
  2. Forgot to mention, "Preset" facility is set up by yourself, so you can make them up to your own personal taste and flying requirements. Pete
  3. Only just seen new update available - had a very busy few days! Also haven't had time to thoroughly read all the 13 pages of comments, so I apologise if this has already been said. I know one or two people have mentioned AddOn Linker (freebie). Excellent software. It has presets available, so I have one marked "Empty" which with one click removes everything from the Community folder, one marked "UK" which loads up UK airports, scenery etc and so on. Brilliant piece of software. Loading update tonight. Might just press the "Empty" button first although I appreciate it might not be necessary! Best wishes everyone Pete
  4. Hi folks, Sorted. The reinstallation of windows had changed the ssd drive letter. Changed it back to the original drive letter(I took a photo of the original desktop just in case) and it installed and effectively repaired the situation. Just shows it's so easy to overlook the obvious at times! I'm still not sure whether I've installed my bought edition but I've now cancelled my Gamepass (ends 25/1/21), so I'll see what happens then! Pete
  5. Hi folks, sorry if this has been asked before but can't find answers at the moment. Here's the problem. Windows 10 crashed the other day. Fortunately I was able to reinstall using a USB stick. This left me with a windows.old folder which meant I got 95% of my stuff back on - phew. However, I seem to have lost part of msfs cuz it won't now start. The packages were on a separate ssd so they're still there. I've been running msfs via Gamepass but I've now purchased the standard version through Microsoft Store. Can I simply install the bought version effectively over the top of the existing one, and will this "repair" it, or should I uninstall the Gamepass version and start afresh? I'm so happy to have the OS system back online but devastated that I've lost msfs. Any help would make an old man very happy. Thanking you in advance, Pete
  6. Wow! And I thought I was being clever putting rubber bands inside my Saitek Cessna yoke to improve its operation lol. Great work guys 😀 Pete
  7. I tend to use XP11 more than P3D at the moment as I feel that ORBX TE GB series looks more realistic and sharper on my system. So I made the decision to keep XP11 and remove P3D to provide SSD space for MSFS. If I don't like MSFS (unlikely I guess) then I can soon reinstall P3D.. Exciting times ahead!! Pete
  8. Hi Canine I used FSX and P3D for many years and I still have P3D loaded, but I eventually decided to try out XP11. At first I didn't like it - probably because it involves a new learning curve, but I'm so glad I persevered!! I assume you're a "tube" man whereas I fly low and slow so I can't help much with questions directly involving airliners. When designers produce scenery etc they often use "stock" items like fences, hangers, people etc. These are all contained in areas called "libraries". When you download an airport for example you may be asked to also download certain "libraries" that contain the objects needed to make the scenery look correct, or even operate in the correct manner. A list of the required "libraries" is attached to the instructions given with the scenery. A very useful site is X-Plane.org which has loads of free scenery, aircraft, utilities etc A very useful utility is called XOrganiser which makes organising scenery etc very easy. It has equivalents in P3D that you may already use. It does cost $12.50 but I think it's worth every penny. It's difficult to comment on disk space etc as it really depends on what and where you want to fly. I fly mainly in GB so I have invested in ORBX True Earth software which takes up quite a lot of disk space. Hope that has helped a little. I now fly XP11 98% of the time, so I suppose I'm hooked!! Pete
  9. Ah yes - thank you. Silly me lol. Got carried away by the beauty of the shots😀
  10. Hi Maximilien I see you didn't install any driver. I have just purchased a Multipanel and it didn't work when I plugged it in. I then Typed "Logitech Multipanel Driver" into Google and found a few sites pointing me to a Logitech Multipanel driver. In my case I was looking for X-Plane but there are P3D drivers too. I loaded the driver (very quick), plugged in the panel and it worked beautifully. I understand you only need the one driver and all panels should work. It is worth a try. Best wishes Pete
  11. I'm a great ORBX and X-Plane fan. I do have P3D v4.5 and I have been tempted to try V5 but a video like this makes me hesitate to spend the money with LM at the moment . I would love to see an equivalent flight with P3Dv5. I suspect they would look very similar. Great to see both these wonderful SIMS progressing. Nice video mhimhi !!
  12. Hi everyone. Hope you are keeping safe and well. I've just picked up 5 of these bargain deals and although I admit I'm no expert on these matters I must say the detail is great and for 6 Euros each they are brilliant. Well done SimMarket and JustSim. Pete
