    When to use Orbx Open LC NA

    Thanks to all who take the time to reply, as you can see I am confused about the use of the Scenery Config Editors use to reduce the workload on my computer. Should I use it, if so what is the proper way to do so, just activate add on scenery for the area I intend to fly in? Thanks for your patience in taking the time to help a very senior simmer. ress

    When to use Orbx Open LC NA

    Thanks Greg for your reply. I am using Scenery Config to deactivate any add on scenery for areas I am not flying in, my understanding is that by selecting only the Add on scenery for the current area iin Scenery Config It will reduce the demand on my system. If that is a correct assumption then my original question still is when is NA LC is used? Thanks ress

  5. I have Orbx Global base and Global vector installed along with Open LC NA plus add on scenery. if I want to use an add-on scenery such as SCAL, NCAL, etc., should Open LC NA be disabled or made active also, if not using any add on scenery then do I use all three, Global base, Global vector and Open LC NA Using PD3v4 Thanks ress

    Missing MSSTDFMT.DLL

    I did a reinstall of the old exe. file after a computer build, it installed and did not ask for a key, when I tried to open an FSX flight plan I get a message saying "Run time error. 713 class not registered, need file MSSTDFMT.dll" seems s like it should have asked for a key to install. How can I fix this ress
  7. Would appreciate a reply from one of the pilots who actually flew the D model for the airlines. thanks ress

  10. When I activate the the Fire Warning Test Sw only the Fire Discharge panel (under the glass cover) lites up, the Master Warning does not lite and there is no alarm sound, also the FIRE Acutator handle does not lite up either. Also the Landing Gear light test does not work.
  11. What are the three Course KNOB settings, PRE, ACT, XFR, what are they used for, also what does the CRS knob PUSH CRS DIRECT do? Is there any source for a more detailed explanation of the EFIS sys and how to use it other then the little info in the airplane manual? Any source to help in explaining the EFIS sys would be greatly appreciated. thanks ress
  12. The situation I am looking for is after a missed App and entering a hold, the airline company tells you to divert to another airport within your fuel range other then the alternate for various reasons, to position the airplane, to go to a base where maint is avaiible, emergency medical equipment available, etc. Joe Restivo (ress)
  13. After a go around if I want to divert to an alternate airport, what are the steps needed to set up the FMS properly and efficently to accomplish that once I decide on the alternate? Joe Restivo (ress)
