  1. After reading about this issue and having already updated the P3D client, I decided to go for all or nothing and load a saved scenario with the 747 (parked at Hilo). I have my P3D starting up with a default scenario using the extra but I didn't load it before loading the 747. And I did experience the black screen. No sound, no response. But after a few seconds I noticed the p3d menu was still active. And then everything returned and the 747 virtual cockpit was back. And smoother than ever. I'm in the middle of a flight now and no more issues so far. On the contrary, I'd been using oculus rift with the 747 for taxi, takeoff and approach and landing and it wasn't a fluid experience (to put it mildly), specially given I am using a bellow specs video card. But I endured due to the spectacularity of the experience. But if this first flight is any indication, P3D and the 747 in virtual reality is now smoother than ever! Edit: I did notice this small issue: using single pass stereo view, the logo light was visible only through the left eye. The right eye displayed the logo light only from certain positions. This issue wasn't limited to PMDG 747, I also saw this happen to an AI taxi light.

    Taxi2Gate sceneries v4 compatible?

    I can confirm that copying the and files from FSX/texture folder to P3dv4/texture folder solves the black autogen buildings issue in MMMX. Thanks for those that helped me out with this.

    Installers needed for SkyHighSim sceneries

    I'd like to restate effeme's request. IT appears that without the original scenery's afcad it won't display properly in v4. If anyone could post it I'd be grateful as well. Edit: I found an updated AFCAD file here: Now all the addon buildings and jetways show. But I still have default buildings and ramp showing up and don't know what file could be the culprit, I've searched for and disabled all *lybe*.bgl I could find.
  4. Does anyone know if there any chance of CLS 747-200 having a second life in P3d v4? How come I can't find even questions about this anywhere? I like to fly my study level Pmdg cargo 744 but once in a while I'd love to hop onto the flite 742, cargo version, for a change.
  5. Keven, The axis are working now! :) But the X axis is reversed for me. In order to move left and right I had to reverse the axis in the chaseplane assignment window because the left selection makes the POV move right and viceversa. Not sure if it's an issue on my side or yours, though. Edit: Found out that in outside mode I am now unable to pan left or right or up or down but instead I move in those directions around the aircraft. In the cockpit assignments work as expected. DISREGARD - I had the "track the aircraft" option on! :)
  6. For some reason it didn't work for me. I had to go around the issue by assigning buttons to replace those axis. But thanks for your suggestion.
  7. Same problem! Chaseplane was updated today and my playstation controller has lost X/Y axis (which I used to move forward/backward and sideways). Something happened here. EDIT In Chaseplane, I tried to reassign the axis to their previous functions. Chaseplane recognizes the axis when I move them in the assign window, even though they don't function afterwards.

    I guess FSL was more careful than Aerosoft, they opted for the PMDG move regarding the release date. "PMDG move: either replying "soon" or threatening with body injuries anyone who asks for a release date" (This is a caricature :) )
  9. Thank you, Vic. This solved my two shader file problems. Uninstalled client. Rebooted. Reinstalled client. Rebooted. Ran P3D. Exited. Ran PTA. No red error messages this time.
  10. Hi! Not sure if I should post this issue here - I installed the 2.6 version and I keep having these reports: ERROR: shader file G:\P3Dv4\ShadersHLSL\Cloud.fx is not original Prepar3D shader and can't be used ERROR: shader file G:\P3Dv4\ShadersHLSL\General.fx is not original Prepar3D shader and can't be used I've unninstalled P3D's v4.1 content and reinstalled it twice with no results. Also tried reinstalling the client module. Should I be installing the scenery module? Thank you : ) Rui
  11. With Bryan's fantastic support it was possible to work around this issue and I now have FS2Crew working in my QOTSII. If I ever discover what is keeping my manager from starting I'll post it here.
  12. Bryan, this is the stack list from the configurator failing taken with process explorer.

  13. Thanks Bryan. Unfortunately it did not solve it. damn.
  14. Could I try to reinstall .NET? What version does FS2crew require? Should it be of any help, my fs2crew start center where I can configure my FSX MD11 starts up fine.
  15. Bryan I couldn't find any obvious cause. Can you give me any clues at to what kind of software could be preventing your configurator from running? I am not supposed to have any unusual software here unless you count the oculus rift software.
