  1. Rob, I agree that the problem lies in some incompatibilities of 4.1 with scenarios saved under 4 but reloading the aircraft did not solve my problem (which, in my case, was that only the AFE was not working (the other windows (payload etc...) were opening and working normally), The problem disappears when the DC6 is loaded from the opening screen or when it is used in a scenario prepared and saved under 4.1. I did not see any problem with the other aircraft (PMDG and P3D native) but, on the other hand, they do not use the windows system of the DC6. Paul
  2. I have also installed 4.1. 737/747/777 seem to work OK. Some issues with the DC6: The AFE does not work (as already mentioned in this thread) and P3D crashed on exit when the flight is loaded from a saved scenario.
  3. Resolved - I did not check the "Wide-view Aspect Ratio" on (Graphics settings) in my new installation!
  4. I did a complete re staging of my computer.over the week-end Once done I came across a stange disagreement between ChasePlane and P3D (v 3.4 and v4) on the zoom level of the screen. Almost all my presets on ChasePlane are with a zoom level of 1 and the views I get on my new installation are very much was they were in my previous installation. What is strange is that the zoom level mention on the top right of the screen now no longer agree with the zoom level of chaseplane. Basically ChasePlane reads 1 while P3D reads .59 and ChasePlane is obviously right. In my previous installation, there was a agreement on the zoom level Not really a major issue but I am wondering what is going on Paul Screenshot at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3ANrMw5VqXIVmRlblRtT3c3SlE/view?usp=sharing
  5. Thanks Jack and Kyle. It is not solved yet but it is definitively linked to the joystick assignment- No dust, except when braking, when the joystick is not connected. I do not have time to go further at this point Paul Lamy
  6. I have the same problem and I have not been able to solve it. Please note that I am still a beginner with Xplane as I am among the PMDG faithful who came to Xplane because of the DC-6. I have noted the following: 1. The dust also comes from the nose wheel which, as far as I know, has no brake 2. The dust issue is not specific to the PMDG DC-6 3. For the time being I have assigned braking to discrete buttons (hold brake maximum/regular) on the joystick and I do not see any way (or need) to calibrate the action of these on/off buttons Is there anything that I am missing here? Thanks for any assistance you may provide Paul Lamy
  7. Thanks Dan Re-installing the B772 base version did the trick ( and I am kicking myself in my a??. for not thinking about it). The only unusual part was the installer went directly to the install part skipping the remove/repair screen. It is rather strange as the 772 was installed and was functioning well (as far as I could tell after a short test "drive"). In case it is useful for further investigation I am running FSX (Boxed version with acceleration pack) under Win 10 Pro 64 bit. Paul Lamy
  8. I just updated my FSX version of B772 and B77W by removing first (as per Robert's suggestion) the existing version using the Windows remove programme and then installing the latest version (1.10.7025) downloaded from the web site. Everything went fine as far as FSX is concerned (even though as I was somewhat surprised not to have to provide the license activation number) but I no longer have access to the B777 in the Operation Center meaning that I am stuck with only the aircraft in the PMDG livery with no possibility of customization. Any idea on how to solve this issue Thanks Paul
