  1. Guys, Is it me, or are the runway and taxi lights at KBNA a bit cartoonish? Not sure if it's supposed to be this way, or if I have an issue. I sent a screen shot via messenger to your Facebook page; I'm having trouble getting an image posted here. Thanks, Dave
  2. Good evening all. I posted this in the P3D forum yesterday and have not received a response so I'll try here. I know this is long and I am hoping it’s something stupid on my part, but I can’t seem to lock down this issue. Background: In order to install P3D V3.1, I deleted all P3D V.2 software and associated add-ons from my hard drive. I left FSX on the hard drive (K drive) as a backup so I could still fly if I had issues with P3D. I did delete all of my FSX add-ons in order to leave space on my hard drive for P3D. I had run P3D V2.5 with the same add-ons on the same system with no issues besides OOMs which are to be expected. Problem: I installed P3D V3.1 on about 3 JAN. I installed a registered FSUIPC, the ORBX products, REX, and ASN in the days following. I flew some quick flights with several default aircraft out of a few different default airports to test ORBX, REX textures with soft clouds, ASN etc; I had no issues. However, after installing the PMDG 777 and Aerosoft A321 and trying flights with them, I started getting CTDs. They were about one to two minutes after takeoff with PMDG and about 4 minutes after takeoff in the Aerosoft Airbus. I can sit on the runway in either aircraft without the CTD for as long as I want. The fatal error occurs with or without ASN running, at different airports, and different weather conditions; I have not tested with default weather textures. The Windows event log reads as follows: System - Provider [ Name] Application Error - EventID 1000 [ Qualifiers] 0 Level 2 Task 100 Keywords 0x80000000000000 - TimeCreated [ SystemTime] 2016-01-07T21:35:48.000000000Z EventRecordID 24459 Channel Application Computer Dave-PC Security - EventData Prepar3D.exe 3.1.2.15831 5672b60a sim1.dll 3.1.2.15831 5672b60a c0000005 000cafa4 12b8 01d149924c58740a K:\P3D Main\Prepar3D.exe K:\P3D Main\sim1.dll 9d9f5ec1-b586-11e5-9607-00268317052a Did something not get deleted properly from P3D V.2 that is causing a conflict? Registry errors? Is there an issue with installing al my P3D V3.1 and associated add-ons direct to my K drive and not C/Program Files (x86)? Graphics card drivers? P3D settings?

PMDG Operations Center is also up to date. Aerosoft Airbus X latest downloader with no add-on liveries installed. In the mean time, I'm going to install P3D 3.1 again, and try both airplanes with no other add-ons, then apply each add-on and continue to test. Thanks, Dave
  3. Update - I had the same error with the Airbus X, so I don't consider this a PMDG issue. If you have any ideas let me know...time to wipe everything and reinstall one at a time :mad:
  4. Good evening all. I posted this topic in the P3D forum but wanted to double tap PMDG as well. I know this is long and I am hoping it’s something stupid on my part, but I can’t seem to lock down this issue. In the meantime I’m going to install another third party aircraft and see if I have the same problem. That will help me determine if this issue is strictly with PMDG… Background: In order to install P3D V3.1, I deleted all P3D V.2 software and associated add-ons from my hard drive. I left FSX on the hard drive \K as a backup so I could still fly if I had issues with P3D. I did delete all of my FSX add-ons in order to leave space on my hard drive for P3D. I ran P3D V2.5 with the same add-ons on the same system with no issues besides OOMs which are to be expected. Problem: I installed P3D V3.1 on about 3 JAN. I installed the ORBX products, REX, and ASN in the days following. I flew quick flights with several default aircraft out of a few different default airports to test ORBX, REX, ASN etc. prior to installing the updated PMDG 777 product – no significant issues noted. After installing the PMDG 777 I loaded the airplane from the main menu, ensured error logging was turned off in P3D, and ran the Simconnect .msi installers in specified P3D folders in accordance with PMDG’s guidance. The PMDG aircraft will sit on the runway for as long as I want it to and all of the systems work fine (buttons knobs etc). However, about one to two minutes after takeoff, P3D has a fatal error (see log). The error always occurs at the same time. The fatal error occurs with or without ASN running, at different airports, and different weather conditions; I have not tested with default weather textures. The airplane performs fine in flight with no systemic issues prior to the fatal error: System - Provider [ Name] Application Error - EventID 1000 [ Qualifiers] 0 Level 2 Task 100 Keywords 0x80000000000000 - TimeCreated [ SystemTime] 2016-01-07T21:35:48.000000000Z EventRecordID 24459 Channel Application Computer Dave-PC Security - EventData Prepar3D.exe 3.1.2.15831 5672b60a sim1.dll 3.1.2.15831 5672b60a c0000005 000cafa4 12b8 01d149924c58740a K:\P3D Main\Prepar3D.exe K:\P3D Main\sim1.dll 9d9f5ec1-b586-11e5-9607-00268317052a Possibilities that I don’t know how to fix: Did something not get deleted properly from P3D V.2 that is causing a conflict?

  5. Great topic. I have owned both the Saitek and CH yokes and didn't like either of them- couldn't hand fly with precision. I actually went back to a joystick because its inputs and handling were more like the real thing than either of those yokes. I am going to buy a high end yoke soon- PFC or GF. This is a major purchase and a little nerve racking. I don't want to spend all that money and find myself in a constant left bank - Saitek - or have sticky, unresponsive inputs- CH and Saitek. My major concern with the PFC yoke is the mounting; all of the reviews say it flies fantastic. If I just put in on the desk, won't I pull it off with significant back pressure. Everything on the GF looks nice, but I'm with the rest of you; I'd like to get some feedback on how it feels. With it's lower cost, and better mounting options, I think I'd chose the GF over the PFC; I just need to know that for the price, I'll be able to fly with precision.
