  1. Found it here in mentioned video, thanks:
  2. I have exactly the same problem, any help is appreciated.
  3. Bill, sorry for going off-topic, but can you say already if the B55 will also get an update?
  4. Rob, thank you for updating the Legacy, it was my favourite FSX aircraft for a long time. So glad to have it back in P3Dv3, I really missed her.
  5. Mike, I hope Maarten comes to the rescue with this. :smile: What I can do is showing my own (working) SLX setup: The default LM flight situation is stored here: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\Prepar3D_Default When you save a new 'default' flight it will be stored in C:\Users\username\Documents\Prepar3D v2 Files
  6. HI Mike, the flights are normally stored in: C:\Users\your username\Documents\Prepar3D v2 Files (I could have answered this in the other forum, sorry, but I thought it was important to make you aware of this SLX dedicated forum in case the cause is different :smile: )
  7. Thanks for the explanation, Rob. I tried it, and I am very happy now with the following results : P3D 4x MSAA, FXAA off, and SGSS 4x in NI. The GTX970 can handle this very well.
  8. That is interesting. I always thought that the (SGSS) AA settings brings down the fps due to the CPU having to work harder. I have a 2600K running OC @4.3. This weekend I traded my GTX660 for a GTX970 EXOC BE, but I did not do the whole NI exercise again because I assumed it was fruitless. Which GPU/NI settings can I change to benefit from my new GTX970 you think?
  9. I use FSUIPC as well for the autosave (among others). Indispensable program!
  10. +1 I like the idea. Also a good side-effect of the above. In case you missed it: currently it is possible to change the zoomlevel for showing the navigation symbols, in your preferences. But of course it becomes too cluttered soon, especially in the USA. In Africa however you can change it quite a bit before it becomes cluttered. ^_^
  11. Let's see if Maarten wants to add this request to his own 'to-add-features' list. :wink:
  12. Vic, The length of the white bar represents the distance on the map that is mentioned below the white bar, for instance 5nm.
  13. The white bar is the simple scale, with beneath it the distance that it represents. "1 inch = 10NM" cannot be done because that depends on your monitor size and resolution.
  14. Distances: It already has a scale. The horizontal white bar above the scale on the bottom right of the map window. Secondly, if you right-click anywhere on the map the distance is shown in the right-click menu. Thirdly, you can show range rings, also through right-clicking on the map. The range rings distance is set in the menubar top-right. Fourhly, there is a measure tool you can start and stop (menubar top-right). Click start and then left-click on the map to draw lines with distances showing. :smile:
  15. ... but he only listens when you call him Maarten
  16. I think support for SLX is easier to handle for Maarten and fellow users when questions are posted in separate topics. It also serves better as a reference for other users that might have the same question. Nobody wants to read a long thread. I have been a beta tester for SLX and I can honestly say that this is the best add-on utility for FSX and P3D that I have ever seen! And the personal and helpful support of Maarten is second to none. He also provided a very comprehensive manual. I know that nobody wants to read manuals, but please have a look at it because it tells you features you otherwise might have missed! Everyone should give Simlauncher X a try. Maarten is planning to post a feature list so you have a better idea what the program does (before you download).
  17. Dear Ed, I am really looking forward to the moment the 'entertainment problem' is solved, and I do not need to restart my simulator to change aircraft. It might be functioning in training sessions as you describe, but I feel you would have less disappointed entertainment/academic users if this limitation (after it was discovered) was mentioned with the product on your website. Regretfully I only found out about this problem after I purchased the product. Please consider this as constructive criticism, I like your product and your path forward,
  18. I agree, I am also disappointed about this issue. I recently asked again in email support (you can ask them as well, I assume it is no secret), and I got this reply: No news, expect something from us towards the end of the summer regarding this.
  19. I got the following reply from Mindstar support about this: Thanks for your email. We know about this problem, we just don't have a solution for it yet. In the interim, please be sure you launch P3D by right-clicking on it and selecting "Run As Administrator". I don't know if that will completely eliminate the issue, but it might help. We will continue to investigate why this is happening, though. It happens to us too. With our avionics, you have to completely exit the sim in order to change aircraft.
  20. With me the sim (P3Dv2) crashes when changing aircraft or exiting the sim, after using/loading an aircraft with the Minstar GNS. Do you guys have the same problem and is there a solution?
  21. Dave, Mark, Thanks for sharing! I copied this snipped into my C337's panel.cfg, but I now have the same problem that Mark first had: the buttons on the right side do not work. What should I add/change that is not in that text snippet? [EDIT] Got it working, I forgot to remove the gauge01 that was 1 line lower. However, the tooltip labels are still wrong. How is this with you guys?
  22. Hi Ed, Bill, The FAQ states that the GPS will be installed in the default Cessna 172. Since P3D does not have a Cessna 172, what happens with the installation? Into one of the other default planes?
