  1. I was wondering if it would be possible for the FO to bring up the flight controls page on the lower eicas after the before taxi procedure for the flight controls check? like the 777, the 747-8 has a dedicated flight controls synoptic page. Thanks.
  2. Support ticket sent, thanks for the help Bryan.
  3. Any news on the fix for this? Engine anti-ice was required for takeoff as per the departure brief but my FO set the anti-ice to off instead of on.

    Resetting Windows10

    I've been having the same problems with my pc consistently restarting after the latest update. I gave in and sent my pc back to the guy who originally built it for me. He reinstalled windows which did solve the restarting problem. Like yourself, i have P3D installed on a separate drive. I finally got my pc back today and was happy to see all of my P3D stuff was still in place on the other drive. But unfortunately, nothing would run, not even simple programs like navigraph charts cloud or even TOPCAT. So I've spent the day uninstalling and then reinstalling everything. I'm guessing it would be a licensing issue.
  5. Thanks for the reply but I've just had a hard drive failure so my flight sim pc is in the hands of my pc expert so I'm unable to check that right now, but ill be sure to check that as soon I get my pc back.
  6. Hi everyone, since the latest Windows 10 update Radar Contact has become almost silent with the ATC voices being extremely quiet to the point where i am unable to hear them over the aircraft. Everything was fine yesterday before i installed the update, I haven't changed anything in my setup since then. I've noticed the same thing has happened to the GSX ground crew voices as well. I'm running P3Dv4 with Windows 10 pro. Any help appreciated with this strange issue.
  7. Definite auto purchase here aswell. The voice control only fs2crew was the only thing holding me back from getting the new maddog. And for the record, a slightly slimmed down version is absolutely fine with me.

    OOM with low VAS?

    A simple reinstall seems to have solved the problem. I guess I just had a bad a file somewhere that was causing this rather strange problem. I will report back if anything changes. Thanks for your help and suggestions everyone!

    OOM with low VAS?

    I usually just use FSUIPC to measure my VAS usage, but since I've had this problem I've been keeping process explorer open on my second screen so I can monitor it more closely. I think you guys are right, I definitely have some kind of memory issue here. I ran the windows memory diagnostic utility but it didn't find anything wrong. I've never had any problem with VAS before as I like to keep my sim relatively simple. I think I'm going to contact the guy who built my pc tomorrow and see if he can shed any light on this.

    OOM with low VAS?

    The flight ended with another OOM. But this time I had almost 2GB's of VAS to spare. I've now removed all of my add-on scenery so my sim is basically default. I'm going to be upgrading to P3D in the summer so if all else fails, I guess I'll just have to reinstall the sim. Thanks for your suggestions everyone.

    OOM with low VAS?

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I have subsequently removed all of my recent scenery installs. If I don't click ok on the OOM message, the sim will continue to run but will no longer load any outside textures. Is this normal for an OOM situation? I'm about to start a flight between LHR and JFK and will report back with my findings.
  14. Hi everyone, my flight sim has been very stable since I got my new computer a few months with only a few CTD's and no OOM's. But over the last few days, i have been running out of memory on every flight. This happened first on a flight between Miami and Quito. The new Quito airport is not present in the flight sim so i downloaded some simple freeware scenery online. During the flight, i left my desk to grab something to eat and I came back to find the dreaded OOM message. I just clicked ok and the sim closed in the usual way. I put it down to something being wrong with the free Quito scenery i downloaded, so i removed it. My next flight was between New York and Anchorage and after around 3 hours with no warning, another OOM. A few days later i decided to do a BA flight between LHR and JFK which again ended in an OOM. My next flight was going to be LHR to ORD, on this flight i was going to make sure i monitored the VAS very carefully. On the ground at the gate with nearly 100% AI traffic it was holding steady at around 3.6GBS's. Before pushback i decided to be safe and turned the AI off, it then went down to around 3.3GB's and remained steady (bear in mind I was using the pmdg 747 with uk2000's EGLL). I taxied and took off and climbed to Fl350 with no issues at all. By this point, VAS was down to about 2.6GB's so i turned the AI traffic back on which didn't affect it. As i was crossing the Atlantic, VAS remained low until crossing into Canada where it jumped to around 3.0GB's. Then a short while later with no warning with VAS at only 3.4GB's, the dreaded OOM message pops up. The strange thing is i have not made any changes to my sim at all over the last week or so this has been happening. The only change was downloading that freeware Quito scenery. Plus, i don't use any global scenery add-ons, everything is default. I do use some freeware add-on clouds, but I've been using them for years with no problems. What could be causing the OOM message to display with VAS so low? Any help appreciated with this strange issue.
