  1. Great explanation, thanks. I guess the GNS 530 isn’t working correctly. So I would need to fly to somewhere along the final approach course before activating the approach? What does “vectors to final” really mean, guess I have been doing it incorrectly the whole time??
  2. Dropped in the GTN 750 in the King Air 350 and had an issue. Loading up an approach and activating it, the GTN always points me to the second approach point, instead of the first like the G1000 and GNS 530. For example, activating vectors to the ILS 8 approach into EGHH, the GTN shows the active waypoint as FF08 instead of CF08. Also, the course to that fix is incorrect. It shows the desired course to be to be 76, which is actually the course from CF08 to FF08, not the course from my current position to FF08. Not sure but it seems that when I activate an approach and vector for finals, the GTN thinks I am at CF08 heading to FF08. I hope that makes sense...
  3. Using X-Europe with Ortho4XP tiles and it looks good in most of Europe. However, I have Orbx True Earth for GB and I believe I am getting X-Europe objects in GB as X-Europe is at a higher level of scenery (or at least I believe it is). I have also noticed a significant slow down of FPS that I never had before. When flying around GB, I can disable X-Europe in X-organizer, but it's tough on my England-France and England- Ireland routes. Anyone think of a work-around for this? Last question, that I still quite understand after reading the manual. What does it mean that I need to change the library.txt file when using othoscenery? Thanks in advance!
  4. I had another airport installed over the demo scenery. When I deactivated via Xorganizer the test ran without any errors. Copying the folder didn't help. Even if I clicked the second xplane.exe, the first opened with all of the original settings. I'll just plan to deactivate plug-ins/scenery via Xorganizer when running the benchmark and call it a day.
  5. Thanks again. I was actually asking if you knew where I can download the files, as there seems to be objects missing from it. Running the X-plane FPS benchmark test as seen here:https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/71725-x-plane-benchmark-charts-fps-tests/
  6. Thanks Paraffin. It looks like the benchmark uses the KSEA scenery, but when I look at the log file, there are a number of issues with objects not being found. Do you know where I can find the KSEA scenery that is used in the FPS benchmark? Chuck
  7. Interested in creating a "clean" copy of X-Plane on another disc for benchmarking purposes as I am planning on doing a number of system upgrades and some overclocking. I tried to install just the demo but it wants to install the full version, but I don't have a activation number as I (unfortunately) purchased the Steam version. Anyone know how I can install a second version of X-Plane via Steam? Thanks.
  8. Thanks to both of you. This is perfect and it'll work for what I am looking for. One additional question: With this configuration, will there be other WT3 generated aircraft in addition to the 19 mentioned that P2ATC will not see? I assume yes...
  9. Coming back to XP and Pilot2ATC after about a year. Just purchased WT3 and I'm still a bit confused about how these work together (or indeed if they work together). I have seen the "workaround" where we add World Traffic AI planes to the XP AI on the settings page as described in the sticky at the top of the page. I was wondering if that just allows the XP AI to use those low-resolution models, or does it somehow "link" the WT3 generated flights to be seen in Pilot2ATC? Obviously I have no idea how this works. I don't really understand how WT3 generates flights, and how this is different from the way XP usually generates traffic. Really, I'm just looking for better airport traffic that is compatible with Pilot2ATC, without the big performance hit of using the normal AI planes. Thanks.
  10. You are not doing anything wrong. Any imported or exported flight plans have arrival/destination airports and any intermediate waypoints and airways, but do not have SID or STAR information. You need to choose the SID and STAR once the plan is loaded. For the GTN 750, this is quite easy. Just click on the arrival or destination airport.
  11. I often don't have time for a full flight, so occasionally I will pause the X-plane for many hours. I place P2ATC on "pause" but often when I restart, the comm frequency is not recognized. For example, I restarted a flight from Nice to Salzburg. I used the COM frequency selector to search for the closest ATC, which comes up with the Marseilles control center at 119.75. I load that as the active frequency but it does not show Marseilles control center underneath, as if the frequency is not recognized. I also had it happen that I will try to load a frequency, and a close but not exact frequency comes up. For example, I type in 119.75, but 119.752 will show up instead. No matter how many times I type in 119.75, only 119.752 shows in the Comm box. Sometimes it "locks up" and I can't switch frequencies between active and standby. I disconnect and reconnect the sim, and that doesn't help. The typed in frequencies do show up correctly in my FF 757 or Aerobask 550, depending on what I am flying. Chuck
  12. Thank you! I created a flight plan in EFASS with airways and it imported perfectly fine with P2ATC. I am getting a few unrecognized waypoints when I load it into my FMC. Using the most recent navigraph data...
  13. Thanks Dave. Is this a feature you will think of adding? I guess I can add airways after the fact? I just starting flying heavy jets a few months ago, so forgive this basic question. In the real world, do pilots have an idea about their STAR approach ahead of time (when filing their flight plan) or are they just assigned them before descent? Is it more "realistic" to file a flight plan with airport to airport only, then get assigned my SID and STAR later? Thanks
