  1. Hello gsand. I saw your post and tried the changes suggested in the links. I see that you said that wouldn't help with GSX, but I tried it before I saw that, lol! Worth a try anyway. The situation is unchanged. If I select KFCA as the ICAO in the control panel for the KGPI airport, the textures and elevation is OK, but can't work the SODE jetways. If I select the KGPI ICAO in the control panel, textures and elevation is screwed up and I still can't access the jetways. I have tried restarting GSX and emptying the cache. Anyone other thoughts?
  2. OK, I was able to get GSX to work, but it does not recognize the jetway. When I customize the space to say there is a jetway, GSX tries to connect but says the SODE connection is lost. I am doing this by using the KFCA ICAO in the control panel and using the original, 2006, file in scenery/0201/scenery/APX17140.bgl instead of the updates from fsaerodata. Prepar3d has both KFCA and KGPI as airport choices, so I am using KFCA since I have that option checked in the Orbx control panel. Any other thoughts? Thanks.
  3. Hello, I have KGPI from Orbx, but have the issue with the elevation being off around the runway and taxiway. I read a thread some time back that said to turn off a bgl file in the scenery/0201 folder. I did that and the texture improved, but the elevation issue remained. I then when into the control panel in FTX Central for the KGPI scenery and selected KFCA as the ICAO and the elevation issue seemed to be fixed. However, now GSX doesn't work as I get an error the GSX can't find file KGPI_ADEP4_GRJ.bgl. Has any one figured out the settings to make this airport work correctly? I feel as though there are two airports right on top of each other. One is FCA and the other is GPI and it seems to be giving me fits. Is there a way to turn off FCA all together in P3D, or is that the wrong answer? Thanks. --Don
  4. Thanks for that. I tried it but it didn't make a difference. I did, however, remember that I had turned off the UTX landclass - I likely did that when I got FTX OpenLC thinking that they would be redundant. I turned it back on and the block along the coast is still there, but now has some texture to it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1t_p44rk2OCmJbLN-8sgYo6qjVQsM66dR/view?usp=sharing I've had this for a while....here is how it looked this past winter, only on the south shoreline of the lake. I have only seen this on the Great Lakes, not on the ocean. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sT4CHY_Fir0H6VSEaLLgcaN9LG7U8bI4/view?usp=sharing Seems like UTX thinks it should be land and Prepar3d or FTX thinks it should be water?? Thanks.
  5. I have this strange texture showing up in Lake Erie. It looks like missing water textures but only on parts of the lake. I have Ultimate Terrain X, FTX Global and Open LC. If I go into the UTX setting tool and turn off the water bodies, the whole lake looks like these block textures in the picture. So it is kind of like UTX is not working along the shoreline. This issue shows up all along the coast, but only one side of the lake. Any thoughts? https://drive.google.com/file/d/13SFPN0OjtYmKt8yum94sYXaBodj75LPF/view?usp=sharing
  6. Interesting to find post as I have recently been seeing the same issue. I have EZDOK 3, FSCaptain, GSX, ProATCx, Active Sky and Multi-crew experience. I first noted the issue when FSCaptain told me I had broken the under 250 knts speed limit below 10k feet when I was flying at 230 knts IAS. Also, I had ProATCx tell me to slow down several times when I was already below the requested speeds. Then on the last couple flights, as soon as I landed GSX told me to cut my engines as it thought I was parked. Also, FSCaptain stopped the flight and was waiting for me to open doors while I was taxiing while the co-pilot was announcing "80knts" at the same time (??). Bottom line, it seems that however these add-ons get the speed of the plane from the simulator, it doesn't seem to be working. I will try some of the suggestions above and other forums, but thought I'd point out that the OP and his brother are not alone with this.
  7. That was easy! All set, thanks.
  8. Hello, I have tried running autostarx.exe but I get an error that says "MSVBVM50.dll" is missing and that a reinstall might solve the problem. I also notice that I don't have a stars.dat file in my p3d folder, but I have stars at night. I have p3dv4.4 and windows 10. Has anyone else seen this? Thanks. --Don
  9. Thanks from me as well. Just tried it, thumbs up! :smile:
  10. Jean-Luc, Thanks for the follow-up. Sorry I did not get back to you sooner but I have been flying the Majestic Dash 8 for the last several weeks. I got back to this last night and uninstalled RXP, including doing a registry cleaner and deleting anything left over by windows uninstall. I then reinstalled and ensured the trainer is on the same drive as FSX and made sure I was not in the "Program Files (x86)" folder. After this, all is working correctly for 2 flights! I think I got this resolved. Likely there was something corrupted along the way. Thanks for your attention, I am back to flying the RealAir Duke B60 piston over Orbx PNW and am a happy virtual pilot!
  11. I went into the .ini file and changed the turbulence factor to .5 instead of .75 and they calmed down a bit. Not sure how this relates to the real world, but my pilots were doing the hands on the head constantly and it just didn't seem right.
  12. Hello, I have Windows 7 and FSX Acceleration. The rxpgnssim.dll log has not been updated since August. Most of the entries are just "closed unexpectedly" for the last few years. I do not have an rxpgns.gau log. I'm thinking I may need to uninstall and delete the folders and reinstall. But if you have another suggestion that may be simpler, that would be great. Thanks. And if you think the log would help, I will include it.
  13. Hello, I recently reinstalled the RXP in the Real Air Baron Duke (piston version). I was told that I had an out of date version, so I updated following all the prompts. Everything seems to work fine on the ground, taxiing and filling out the flight plan. Once in the air and after I turn on autopilot, the screen drops from full screen to windowed mode and the RXP is dead. Here is the fault from appcrashviewer. Another time, it just froze and crashed the sim. Any suggestions?

  14. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought I read a post by the Mindstar developer saying that they do not provide vertical navigation on the approach. So no glideslope for LPV/LNAV approaches. If true, that would be a deal breaker for me to have a GPS that can't do approaches. Please correct me if this has changed as I do not mean to spread rumours, but I did read that in a post in early January. --Don
  15. Luc, You weren't alone. I had the same problem with the left gear vanishing. I had crash detection off and when I landed the plane would skid off the runway (which it wouldn't do with crash detection on), but when the plane came to a stop, the gear would reappear and the plane would pop back up to normal! Really weird. I emailed with Rob on the issue and he tried to help, but I couldn't figure it out until I deleted my config file and then it worked. I rebuilt my config up to where I wanted it and the issue never recurred. I think it is a combination of crash tolerance, crash with dynamic and crash detection settings that need to be right to avoid the issue. Maybe stress damage and/or allow engine damage is part of it, too. Unfortunately, I never figured it out for sure. --Don
