    engine textures

    It looks like you are using a third party livery which is very likely the cause. Does this happen with the default RR PMDG livery?
  2. Just as I thought of it, are we all going astray and not looking at the obvious needs for our flight simulators? A new product line, maybe its hardware related such as a Yoke and throttle quadrant, yes there are already such things on the market but not at an affordable price. 10 years would seem about right for the research into getting it right.

    PMDG FSExpo Announcement

    I'm going to add my thoughts on what I think it may be... A line of classic aircraft such as the 747 100 to 300, the 727, 707 etc A full motion simulator, however I doubt it would take 10 years to build one so that is likely not it. My one and only wish is that it is for the consumer market and something that we can use either from our personal computers or in or around our personal home. Unless PMDG have somehow setup a flight school....
  4. A very exciting time for all of us. I'm sure the conspiracy theorist in some will come up with a few theories regarding the announcement. I very much look forward to June, mainly for the good weather, but the 'BIG' announcement too
  5. Pushing the news of DT's decision to end development on FSW to the side, although I am probably mentioning this in a time and place where not appropriate there are many of us simmers, P3D users alike such as myself that would love to see you guys move forward and onto other platforms, such as - (yes you guessed it) X-Plane 11. For a market that you would dominate with the T7 and 747. However - I am not here to tell you what to do and or be 'that guy', but since X-Plane is growing significantly in popularity especially within the past several months, may you reconsider your plans for the future? Unless you have greater plans...

    Application Hang

    My comment on that side was a bit over the top and pointing the finger at one thing only where I should have been more open on what may have caused it. I will look into your suggestions, this is my first time experiencing an App Hang and its one that is puzzling me also. Having searched the internet for suggested threads I am almost certain that in fact it is not P3D's fault, it is a module from outside of P3D causing it as it only seems to happen with the PMDG 777. I am currently in the middle of a flight which by the end of it should have accounted for over 5 hours in the sim. If all goes well then I will be happy (and yes I have already gone through some bad weather).

    Application Hang

    I have copied and pasted this from my post on the P3D Forums as I am far too lazy to type out a new post. Just to add that I did 'reset' the sound by pressing Q twice because of that annoying bug where sounds continue in the interior view from the outside view. I am just wondering could that be any cause to the application to hang and CTD? Crash to desktop after crash to desktop with P3D V4.2! After a full clean install of P3D V4.2 I am yet again plagued by an unknown CTD this time its to do with an application hang. Upon finals into Minneapolis after an event free flight from London Heathrow, just entering in some information into the fmc (PMDG 777) the dreaded windows loading cursor appears, then the sim 'hangs' and keeps on hanging until it eventually crashes. Sort your sim out LM! I know its not an issue on my side as I have spent countless hours over the past few days getting everything sorted and in order, making sure I installed compatible products and have tested it thoroughly.

    P3D V4.2 api.dll

    Having had a crash free simulator for the past several months, today I was 'awoken' by an api.dll error which has puzzled me as I have not had one of those in a very long time. My settings aren't very high so I don't see how the cause could be high settings, I haven't changed anything on my computer in several weeks such as installing new things or uninstalling others. This is my last resort, what could be the cause? I was over the south of Spain when the crash occurred, I flew from KBOS - EGLL yesterday without any issues what so ever using the same aircraft I had the CTD in today.
  9. I thought I had done something wrong with updating to 4.2, I was trying to figure out why every other aircraft loaded perfectly fine, but the 747 just caused a CTD without any error in Event Viewer.

    P3D V4.2 Not Starting

    I have noticed upon further examination of the Event Viewer that the vss service is shutting down due to idle timeout. Could that have anything to do with the sim crashing as soon as I load the 747? I have run SFC and it has found no integrity violations.

    P3D V4.2 Not Starting

    As I said, I sorted the Kernel Base error issue. Windows update and a couple driver updates fixed the issue.

    P3D V4.2 Not Starting

    Having loaded up the default flight all was okay. Upon closing P3D and restarting it with the PMDG 747 at FlightBeams KSFO, the sim will just shut down. It doesn't happen at KSFO, it happens at several other airfields as well. The issue is, that nothing shows up in Event Viewer, okay I did get KERNAL Base errors to begin with, but I have since fixed those issues - however the ongoing issue is being unable to load up the PMDG 747. The 777 works perfectly fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the 747 without any fix. I am scratching my head...

    Saitek Yoke & Powered USB Hub

    I'll purchase the one you have now, hopefully that will fix any issues I am having. Thanks for your feedback!

    Saitek Yoke & Powered USB Hub

    This is the one I have
  15. I recently purchased a powered USB hub for my Saitek Yoke, Rudder pedals and throttle system. I have the power supply for the yoke which powers the controller from the wall, however - I cannot get the yoke to connect to the computer when plugging it into the powered USB hub. Yes the hub is connected to the computer via USB, but the controller will not connect to the computer where as it does if I just plug it independently into the computers USB socket. Any ideas?
