  1. Thanks Guys for your suggestions. I have dropped traffic density to 30%, and reduced the "Traffic Spawn Settings". Will see how that goes and report back. John.
  2. Hi Dave, As I mentioned in the post, this problem happens even with a default install of P3D no addon scenery, just UTL. I have also stripped my system down several times and reinstalling with just Windows + P3D + UTL. The FPS always is very good even when I put traffic up to 70-80% for the first 15-20 mins, even at busy airports like EGLL & KLAX, but then just suddenly drops ??. It has to be UTL, as I have no problem with "Traffic Global" keeping constant FPS all the time, and running P3D without UTL. My specs are not the problem also: I7700k@4.4gig, 1080ti nvidia card, 16meg fast ram & SSD drives. John.
  3. Not sure if anyone else has this problem, when I first load the sim and I am sat at a gate (any gate,any airport) with UTL running, FPS is good around 40 fps depending on the airport and scenery. But after around 15-20 mins (sometimes longer, sometimes sooner) the FPS drops to around 15 fps. The only way to get the FPS back is to disable UTL, but if I enable UTL again the FPS drops again. The only way to get back my FPS is to restart the sim. I don't think this is anything to do with the sim, as I have stripped and reinstall P3Dv4 a few times, for various testing, and I still get this problem with UTL, even with just default scenery. I also have Traffic Global installed, and when I enable TG (with UTL disabled), the FPS are fine all day, but I still prefer UTL, is this problem can be sorted. I have the latest version UTL and I have tried different traffic density settings, with no improvement. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. John.
  4. Hi, Same here, so I just turn off experimental versions in the preferences tab and after a restart it goes back to ver.3.66, and all buttons are fine. I am sure Keven will get out a fix soon. John
  5. Hi Fritz, Thanks for the info, I will check my FTX Central settings. John
  6. Hi Glen, I had this problem. I have Orbix Global, Orbix England, UTLive & and some UK2000 airports (with work arounds to run in P3Dv4). It does seem to be an Orbix problem, as it tries to put all of its scenery at a higher priority than the airports you have, in the scenery library. What was happening at say Gatwick was the UTLive traffic was not lining up right with the taxi lines and as you say traffic taking off and landing on R/W 08L/26R. What you need to do is go into the menu when the sim is running and into "World-Scenery Library" and make sure any "FTX_EU_EG" and "ORBIXOPENLC" (if you have Orbix Global installed) is a lower priority than any airports, same for the Orbix_Libs. The problem also is when you install any new updates from Orbix it puts all their stuff back to high priority again so you have to go in and change it. When I lowered all the orbix files, the UTLive traffic lined up perfect on the taxi lines and no more landing on 08L/26R at Gatwick. Hope this helps. John.

    Help with installing extra MS Voices.

    O.K, thanks Dave for your help. I will try some more language packs to see if there are any desktop voices in them and if there is I will report via the forum. Thanks, John.

    Help with installing extra MS Voices.

    Hi Dave, Thanks for the info, and the tutorial, but that's is what I have doing, adding extra language and speech packs, i.e, English Welsh, English Irish & Australian, but only getting the mobile versions of these voices. Is there a way to find out if a speech pack contains a desktop voice, apart from the Spanish voice. Thanks, John.
  9. Hi Dave and fellow P2A users, I am on the last few days of the trial and will definitely buy when it runs out. I am hoping to add a few more MS voices to give a bit more variety, and I know that Dave said in a post you can download extra language and speech packs, which I have done from within the Windows 10 settings page. So at the moment Windows is showing that I have 8 voices installed, all showing them as "Mobile", which I know are not compatible with P2A, but "David,Hazel & Zira", show up in P2A voices as desktop voices, and they are "Mobile" voices according to MS settings, so I am a little confused. So how do I get more MS voices that will show up as desktop voices for P2A ?. I do intend to get some 3rd party voices at a later stage. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John.

    No Liveries for NGX in P3D4

    Hi, I have downloaded a few liveries and they show up in the aircraft list, but they are under "Boeing 737-800" in the list not "PMDG", they only list their house liveries. Hope this helps. John Coles.
  11. Hi, I have recently installed "Reshade 3.0.7", and although the presets seem to work o.k, and apart from X-Plane hanging when shutting down when Reshade is installed, not sure if there is a fix for this, the other problem since installing reshade is when I change airports there is no preview of the airport, i.e no graphic of the runways and parking spots, although they are listed in the left panel. When reshade is removed the graphic is back and normal. I am running X-Plane ver.11.01r2. Thanks, John.

    Mouse Pan & Tilt Setting.

    Hi Kevin, Thanks for all your help, but I have just realised that the static cameras now work in P3Dv4 and the panning in that mode is perfect, so problem sorted. Sorry for taking up your time, and again thanks for your quick reply's and thank you for a brilliant program. John.

    Mouse Pan & Tilt Setting.

    Hi Kevin, Still the same issue in build 118. I have made a short video (avi file) to show you the problem, but not sure how to upload or attach the file to this reply. Please help. Thanks John.
  14. Hi, I have an outside view setup that is high above my plane, so I can pan around an airport from a vantage point using my mouse to pan. But when I pan the view tilts (Rolls) the scenery, is there a way to correct this so it will pan level ?. I know the setting in camera settings is only for "Mouse & Tilt" on or off. I am running experimental version 0.2 .108, and P3D v4. Thanks, John.
  15. Hi Guys, The same thing happened to me last week, tried to order KCLT and KIAH with paypal, it said "Transaction Pending", so I phoned paypal customer service, and get this, they said because KIAH comes up with the description "George Bush Intercontinental Airport" on the invoice, it throws up a security flag, but I explained it was only software for flightsims, he said he would do something to get the transaction through within a couple of hours. This never happened, and the transaction was cancelled and the funds credited back to my pp account, so I ordered them on a visa cc with no problems. I think Paypal may have their security flags a bit too high. John.
