  1. I experienced this on several occasions where the engine just dies randomly midflight. If I restart the ignition, I can usually save the flight. Any idea what is causing this?
  2. I had this same exact issue with FSX before I moved over to P3D. There seems to be some elevation issues a KPDX. I do have ORBX scenery installed, but disabling it does not solve the issue either. How can I fix this?
  3. Okay I was able to get this working correctly in the Gulfstream, however some of the other aircraft I am trying to mod have a black image covering the panel in the cockpit_3d folder which obviously makes it impossible to find the GTN coordinates. Is there a way around this or does this mean the aircraft is incompatible?
  4. I have been using the GTN750 for navigation in the FlyJsim 727 and I am wondering how I can get the coordinates for placement in the cockpit (once I find a suitable place for it) Is the process the same for XP11? I recall editing the aircraft CFG in P3D/FSX, but obviously this is not possible with XP.
  5. Thanks for this tutorial. I followed your instructions but using the GTN750 instead. I got it to display correctly in the freeware Gulfstream G-IV for XP, however I can not click any of the GTN buttons on the screen. I can only control the unit with the GTN750 popup window instead of the integrated guage. Is there a way to fix this?
  6. My current cpu still runs well in most applications, however at 8 years old it is starting to show its age. I get great performance out of P3D with my current setup, but XP11 struggles a bit to run on my system. I'm thinking the combination of the i5-2500k and the high end GTX1070 is creating a bottleneck for my cpu. I'd like to avoid changing out the motherboard, memory, etc. if I can get away with it. Is it still worth it to buy a high end Ivy Bridge chip in this day and age or would my money be better spent on a complete hardware upgrade? I have been looking at the Intel Core i7-3770K which appears to be the best chip you can buy (and is still available new) for the LGA1155 socket.
  7. My rudder pedals have started to squeak really bad when move them. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Not sure if WD-40 would work since these things or not.
  8. Has LM tweaked the default atc at all from what came with FS2004/FSX? I decided to give the default atc a try again with P3D and was presently surprised with how well it worked. You still can’t follow STARS completely, but the vectors actually seemed logical for the most part with a few glitches here and there. Still not Vatsim or real life ATC quality, but better than no ATC at all.

    Blackhawk B350i Mod v1.0

    This is amazing. Where can I download this? The link above just redirects to this page.
  11. I have added a couple GA parking spots to KPDX using ADE if that is somehow messing with P3D
  12. I have noticed this recently how the textures and stuff load before I even choose a scenario. Is this normal? Every time it does this the sim crashes shortly after actually loading a new flight. http://
  13. I have been having random crashes in P3D lately. Most of them happen 2-3 hours in the sim. Here is the details of the most recent crash.

    API & Simconnect crashes

    Ok thanks. I also had an outdated SDK installed from P3D v4.3 which I have since updated to 4.4
  15. I have a technical question about the differences between the -400 and the -800. PMDG has modeled the wind noise to be very loud in the cockpit by default with the -400, which I am assuming is accurate. I have always heard the 747 is very loud upfront. I noticed a difference with the -800 where the wind noise is much quieter. Did Boeing put more noise dampening material in the 747-800? It seems to be a much quieter bird overall.

    [Explanations] Sound Issue with Majestic Q400

    I think it is coming from the wind sound. Most of the sounds outside of the sim are clear as day though. If it was a latency issue I would have bad FPS and stutters during gameplay, correct? I do have an older processor, but it has held up very well for it's age so I'd hate to say it is time to upgrade it if it still is running well with other tasks.

    [Explanations] Sound Issue with Majestic Q400

    Same thing here with the sound files. This is an excellent soundset so I am not sure why I am getting all the sound crackles in the cockpit. I don't think its performance related because my FPS is still good.
  18. I have the latest airac installed for PMDG, but the runway database is still outdated in the EFB (ex. RW 14/32 at PANC instead of 15/33). Is there a separate update for this?
  19. I've noticed with certain aircraft I get this popping noise that shows up every few seconds. Whether its headphones or speakers, it doesn't make a difference. Is this a hardware issue or something else? I tried updating the realtek audio drivers with no success. Anyone know how to fix this?

    EFB Runway database update

    I fixed the issue. Thanks guys.
  21. I am using the button setup for FS2crew and on almost every flight thus far, the FO keeps lowering the landing gear during climb. Not sure what is causing this.
  22. I saved a new default flight with my correct time zone in P3D, opened fs realtime, and it automatically moves back an hour when I hit 'set to now". Also the utc time is wrong in p3d. If I use the current utc time, the local time becomes incorrect. How can I fix this? It was working before daylight savings switched.
  23. I had this issue appear once already and a reinstall fixed the problem. Now the same issue with the textures are back. How can I fix this issue? Highmemfix is also in the cfg as well and that is the only solution I can think of.
  24. I've had this issue with both of the MD-11 and the 747v3 lately. I'm not sure why but the gross weight keeps changing back and forth between two different weight levels. Its would you would expect if you added more fuel midflight and kept getting inconsistent fuel predictions in the FMC, except I'm not changing any weight levels once I load the panel state. This happened right when I landed the MD-11. I got the green "ZFWCG out of range" message at the top. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Weight issues with PMDG aircraft

    I use TOPCAT to load the payload, but fuel is always managed internally with PMDG.
