    747 ILS frequency setting

    I haven't got 747 v3. But I saw Virgin 19 documented flight and they did a tour of the cdu. And it was a CDU NAV RAD. I had the older pmdg 747 and it was the same.

    P3d stopped working

    Should I role back to a certain P3D. If I remember you can uninstall the client? Do they still have the older version on the site?

    P3d stopped working

    I have looked through my updates I have KB4022405, KB4041676. But not KB4038788. Would these patches cause a crash as well? Many thanks.

    Thanks, I will check this out. Sorry which recent thread? There are now quite a few. Is there a pined thread on this?
  7. Hi pilots, I am experiencing some crashes. with Prepared3D Version 3.4.22.19868. P3D stops responding randomly. I am using the latest ASN with all latest updates. Using Obex south of England scenery. And I always install the NGX PMDG 737 I have recently installed a new windows system. I am hoping that the info below might hint at a potential problem. I have a feeling ASN might of had a bad install and messed something up, but I can not me sure. Many thanks for any insight you may have.

    Professional Flight Planner X p3d v4

    I have got PFPX, it is great from a pre-flight point of view. I wouldn't alway trust it's 'Find Routes' option. They seem to give some strange results. I am finding that I have to get the flight plans from a better source. But overall I like the planning side of PFPX.
  9. Hi thanks for the reply. I have installed Spad next. Home User. To do all this yourself. My goodness it look horrendous! But I managed to borrow some kind clever souls profile. I guess thats how this works. It worked now straight away. I think anyway. Will let you know if I have any issues. Best regards Julian
  10. Hi all. I have been looking for more reliable drivers for my Saitek hardware. Then I came across SPAD Next, which sounds like a more advanced driver. I have been out of the loop a bit with FS generally so this is new to me. I haven't bought the registered version, but it looks like it might work with P3D3.4. And I will probably buy it because the default Saitek are drivers useless. It is annoying because you pay good money for this hardware. Then you have to pay someone else to make it work properly. Are there any pre-made profiles for the specific Saitek device? In my case I have a Saitek Radio Stack, Pro flight yoke and pedals. I saw a video which was infomative but It seemed very aborious having to find every simulator command through Simconnect or FSUIPS (looking at this video). Because of the amount of commands, there is a high risk of setting the wrong thing? It seems like a lot of work to do, and all you really want it to do is make the device work. If you can download a profile from spad themselves this would be very helpful. And I don't mean people giving away their own profiles. I mean a out the box profile that knows what your device is. Obviously the profile can be tweaked after that? Many thanks for the video. I have been using the default Saitek profiles. But it is difficult getting those to work well. Quite often they don't work. Many thanks. Jools

    Advice on Anti Virus security and P3D

    Thank you for for this. I wanted to hear you opinions, as software changes quickly, even in a year! I have been doing a fair bit of research on the best AV software, but interested in opinions. @DaveCT2003 Hello again, I will check your threads. Thank you. Best regards Julian
  13. Hi all. I use P3D3.4 coupled with a few add-ons, and am now looking for a new security software that works well with Windows 10, P3d and addons such as Ezdok. I used ESET and to be fair it is a good virus software, but it is just too strong, and you feel like you might as well lock yourself out of your PC, because it it stops everything working. Even when you try and exclude Ezdok from the realtime scaning it won't remember to do that. I have heard that some of the best AV programs are Bitdefender and Kaspersky for intrusion and URL threats. Both look very good, but do they stop Ezdok or create any problems with P3D? Has anybody used these programs I just mentioned? Best regards Julian
  14. I had this issue, and you are right it is permissions. But you can just save the files elsewhere, and drag the files into the right folders, as a workaround.

    Cannot load any data from FMC

    Are all the sids/stars files in the right folder?
