    FRF KMCI

    I don't think my Afcad file would make any difference. The only change I remember making, was to remove all of the lines on the outer edges of the taxiways , etc which were rarely there for real. I used the LevelD B767 and mostly AIAardvark AI aircraft which have never shown any problems and were all self-installed by substitution in the MS Traffic file. Colin B

    FRF KMCI

    With a NW wind, traffic landed on runway 27. Changed surface and lower level winds to north and then south, and traffic took off in the correct directions. No apparent problems but didn't check landings. Colin B

    Portland KPDX 2010 Fix ?

    I had the problem where it landed me on the taxiway on the right. I used ADE9X to change the 28L localiser to the runway heading of 299.05998°, then moved the green localiser arrow to lineup with the runway. Saved and compiled and put in the KPDX scenery file, backing-up the original. Next attempt using a loc QDM of 280°, it flew straight down the loc and landed in the middle of the runway with no further problem. Colin B

    FS2004 Belgian Airports Scenery Query

    Search Flightsim.com for Buysen and you should get a file containing Brussels (+others) and an afcad for it. It is " By Peter Slater, Gareth Abbott. (See also ELVASP1U.ZIP)" It's also available here on Avsim as elvasp1.zip Colin B

    PANC Approaches

    Carob Where did you get the AFD file you are modifying with AFCAD? My FRF V6 came with an AFX_PANC_v6.bgl file which I modified with ADE. That file has ILS approaches for rws 14, 07L and 07R which AI appeared to be using. I only used it with LevelD B767 and not the default GPS. If you changed it with AFCAD, you probably lost a lot of the file content. Colin B

    Tropicalsim KDCA buildings float

    You weren't meant to use that file! You should check your FS9 folder......\scenery\name\scenery, and if it's there, then disable it. It was Steve0616's suggestion if you had previously used Shez's scenery of KDCA. Colin B

    Tropicalsim KDCA buildings float

    The file you're referring to might be "3altfix.zip" with corrections for 3 of Shez's sceneries. An extract from its Readme shows "Each file in this zip archive is an FS9 BGL file for a single airport. Install only the corresponding file for any of Shez' airport scenery you have installed and active. They must be installed into the regional scenery folder that contains the default airport scenery AP file: KBUR_Burbank_BUR2005_238pt950.bgl scenery\namw\scenery KSNA_John_Wayne_Santa_Ana_SNA2004_17pt359.bgl scenery\namw\scenery KDCA_Reagan_National_dca2002_4pt880.bgl scenery\name\scenery" The files aren't in each separate scenery if installed as per instructions.

    CYVR Vancouver released

    I had no trouble adding it manually to the scenery when I installed it. My entry is:- [Area.081] Title=Vancouver Local=D:\Flight Sim 9\Scenery\Canada\Vancouver Area v1.0\CYVR\Scenery Active=True Required=FALSE Remote= Layer=81 Just change the Area/Layer and the Local address and try that. I've had no trouble with FS9 crashing at any stage of use. I do get occasional stutters using it with the LevelD 767 but I'm only using an "Intel Dual core @ 3Gh". Colin B

    FS9 AI remain on stand after clearance

    Try removing the Take-off/Landing Only restriction for the runways using ADE or AFCAD and see if that makes any difference. Colin B

    New Super VC10 Panel Upgrade

    With a bit of luck, it might eat gwillmot, and save us all a lot of aggro. Colin B
