  1. Hi all. I have just upgraded Prepar3d v4.4 to v4.5 Everything is ok except for chase plane. Chase plane loads up but it doesn't respond to the keyboard commands, or anything else. Is this a common fault with the prepar3d upgrade. Is there a solution? or are we waiting for a chase plane upgrade to solve the problem. Regards Paulh1
  2. Hi All I am using prepar3dv4 with PMDG 747-400 and Active Sky for P3Dv4, on windows 10 I believe I have all the setting correct, because they are the same as my pc setup, (this is about my install on a laptop). I have been through the FMC options on the aircraft. After starting all the software and using Active sky in realtime mode, and populating my FMC with the flight plan. I attempt to upload the weather data, and destination wind data and always get the FMC message Data Link No Comm. I dont get this on the PC. what am i doing wrong. Regards Paulh1
  3. Hi All I am running the Prepar3dv4 simulator with pmdg 747-400 and the qualitywings 787-9. Have no issues except for the replay after landing. The qualitywings replay is perfect, reverse thrusters are shown activating, and the speed brakes redeploy each time the replay is replayed. However the pmdg 747-400 has never shown reverse thrusters for years now, and the speed brakes don't redeploy, they just stay deployed for all replays there after. Is this just me, or is this standard for all simmers. If it is a bug can or will pmdg rectify this bug. I have only raised this since installing the 787, and I am wondering if one company can get it right, why cant the other. Regards Paul Hursey
  4. Hi I use ultimate traffic live and Pro/ATC-X. The first is for populated traffic and the second is for ATC, I am happy with both Regards Paul
  5. Hi All I realise that this aircraft has its own forum, however I am having huge issues logging in, so maybe someone can help me here. Yes I am using prepar3dv4 as my simulator, and have just installed the QualityWings 787 as well as my existing PMDG 747-400 When I use the 747, all my flight plans were created with PFPX and stored in the Prepar3d/pmdg/flight plans folder as .RTE files. I wish to use these flight plans with the new 787. So I copied these .RTE flight plans across to the Prepar3d/QualityWings/QW787/Flight plans folder. (I am led to believe that the 787 also uses RTE files rather that .PLN files. When entering data into the CDU. it recognizes the flight plans in the folder, and can find them by using the find flight plans option. Also when entering the flight plan manually into the company route lsk, it recognizes the flightplan. However when I go to the route data page. None of the waypoints for the flight plan has been infilled. This works fine on the 747 FMC. So what needs to be done to get the 787 to accept my current flight plans, and insert the waypoints into the CDU. I also have these flight plans in .PLN format, which I use for ProATC-X. Can anyone help. Regards Paul

    GSX

    No matter what I do I cannot get the jetway at any gate to use door L1 instead of L2 I am using Prepar3dv4 with PMDG Queen Of the Skies 747-400 v3 ver Qantas ER I go into GSX Customize Aircraft Editor. Yes It is the correct aircraft and corrisponds to my current aircraft. I select the Pax1 door, and select the header Door with open close checks as FSX Door1 When I go into the editor the blue Z and green and red axis lines are over the correct door (L1) However when I use the jetway it always goes to L2. I am trying to position my nose wheel on the forward yellow line, then L1 will be in easy reach of the jetway. L2 is to far away, and the jetway has to split in half to reach it. After doing this edit I press Y which is supposed to close and save, yes it closes, but the jetway always goes to L2. Another issue I am having is editing the position of my aircraft on the approach line. In the editor I move the aircraft nose wheel and the orange stop circle back to the forward yellow line ending. I press y to save and close. However every time I reopen the simulator the aircraft is back to this default position of 2 meters forward of the end yellow line. The third problem I am having is The height of the jetway at the door, is about 2 feet below the top of the door (that is the jetway apron or hoarding that surrounds the door) So when the jetway is at the door, and the door is open you can still see inside the aircraft with about a 2 foot gap. How do I raise the jetway so it fully encloses the door. I have tried going into the aircraft editor, and raising lower horizontal line up 2 feet (this line is at the bottom of the door by default) However this seems to have no effect of where the jetway goes, or interacts with the door. Hope someone can help me with these 3 issues. Regards Paul

  8. Hi All Hi I have just installed update Prepar3dv4 4.3.29.25520 Just to check that I did the right thing! When I clicked on the install icon, it displayed a path to Programm 86/ Lockheed Martin/........ This is not my default sim folder it is C:\Prepar3Dv4 Did I do the correct thing and direct it to my default folder, or should I have let it install to the folder it had displayed? However I would of assumed it new where its own default folder was. It continued to install the update and was happy at the end. It just stated there would be graphic issues with the first startup, then they would be resolved. Unfortunately all my graphics are corrupted, both default scenery and Orbx scenery. I am getting corrupted scenery squares, some are night or black scenery squares, some are purple, blue all mottled incorrect scenery squares. How can this be corrected . Don't tell me I have to reinstall everything all over again. I tried reinstalling with a repair, no difference still corrupted. Also while I am here. When using Pro-ATC/X I used to have a text box that showed the voice instructions from ATC. Now since I installed the latest update, I cant find any options to enable the voice text box, s I can read the instructions as well as hear them. Regards Paul Hursey
  9. Hi Guys Any suggestions?

Even though I have two graphics cards it will only allow me to use 1 1 or the other, not both. Whats the point to two graphics cards when you can only use one? I also use Orbx scencery. However in Orbx options all have been turned off except for major and minor roads. Software in use with the simulator 1. Active sky 2. GSX 3. Navigraph Charts desktop + Simlink 4. Chase Plane 5. PMDG Queen of the skies 747v3 6. Pro-ATC/X 7. Ultimate Traffic live 8. WAMA (where are my aircraft) So Bottom line guess what frame rate I am getting out of all of this? Answer Between 14 - 25 fps So As you can understand I am very dissappointed. A guy I know who builds computers looked at the system, and noted that when a game or simulation takes along time to load it is poorly written or programmed. Just like my graphics cards. Surely they would have allowed for multiple or upgrade hardware to run the sim. I guess my point is dont go out buying high end hardware. There is no point untill major changes are made. So as Ryan Batcund mentioned "Even though P3D is newer portions of the code date back to 2003-2006 from FSX. It still needs the fastest CPU". So even though prepar3dv4 is 64 bit, its still a dog. So if anyone has any ideas of improving frame rate, without degrading everything, I would like to hear about it. Regards Paul Hursey
  10. Hi All In relation to Downscc's question,, no I am not running any EZDOC programs. All I run is navigraph moving map charts, PRO-ATC/X active sky and prepar3d v4 Yes guys I realise you are not supposed to fly through thunderstorms. I am more intrigued about my aircraft data and response. When you are at 2000 ft with a headwind of 9 knots, with flaps 1 then within seconds you are doing over 300 knots with no inrcrease in wind data, or no increase in altitude , You have to admit its rather strange?
  11. Hi All I am running Queen Of The Skies 747-400 v3 In Prepar3d v4 with active sky, using live weather I have entered a few thunderstorms over Bali Indonesia lately. My aircraft data is telling me I have 9 knots of headwind. I am at 2000ft, I have encountered turbulence. Then within seconds the aircraft has accelerated to 300 knots plus, and refuses to de accelerate. We all wonder how this can happen with 9 knots of headwind. Has anyone else encountered these issues, and may have a solution. Is It active sky or pmdg? Regards Paul
  12. Hi All I have just formatted my lap top up to windows 10 64 bit. So I have reinstalled prepar3d v4 with ORBX scenery addons. My system is a Toshiba Qosmio X770 CPU intel i7-2630QM 2.0 GHz Ram 8.0 Gig Graphics Nvidia GeForce GTX 560M I have messed about with graphic options, followed suggestions from youtube clips, tried default settings. However the best I can get in frame rate is between 5-10 frames/sec Is this the best this machine can do, or is there something, or some settings that are seriously wrong. Regards Paul
  13. Hi All I currently have the latest version of PMDG 747 v3 For FSX Could someone please tell me if the ver 8 has been released or when it will likely to be? Also if it has been released, where it can be purchased from. As the PMDG operations centre has no option to download or purchase there. Nor does the PMDG website. Regards Paul
  14. Hi Guys Anyone know how to convert .rt2 flight plan files to .rte format Since queen of the skies 1 .rt2 flight plans converted to queen of the skies 2 .rte all the old flight plans have become redundant. I have a converter for .pln to rt2. but none others. Any sugestions Regards Paul
  15. Hi All Flying queen of the skies 2 When taxing the FMC used to give me verbal information on what runways I was crossing or approaching during taxi. However now I hear a slight break in the audio noise, indicating that this is when she is probably speaking, but I don't hear the words. What options do I have to set to get this feature back, as I used to hear it, but now I don't. Also do any others experience not seeing the reverse thrust feature of the engines separating in the landing replay mode with FSX? I have been told that this is because FSX cant process these extra animations. What is the best way around this to visualize this feature in replay mode? Regards Paul
