  1. I have just upgraded to a Windows 11 computer and reinstalled PFPX there. After registration I find the program disappears from my screen shortly after startup. Is this a compatibility problem? John McWilliam
  2. I run my Dash 8 Q400 with P3D v5.3 under windows 10. I also have the FS2Crew and EZCA addons.I have a problem when I get to the TakeOff Procedure in FS2Crew - the copilot readouts do not occur and I cannot communicate with FS2Crew until I get to the Climb Procedure.My solution for this has been to turn EZCA off during the TakeOff Procedure and turn it on again during the climb.This is the case at all airports and does noy apply to my other aircraft (PMDG 737 NGXu). There would thus appear to be a conflict between FS2Crew and EZCA during the TakeOff Proc. Does anyone have the same problem? Is there a solution? John McWilliam

  4. I added the word "on" according to your instructions but sadly this did not help. Sometimes the recognition (green text) indicates "arm" and sometimes "one". I can't get it to recognise "on". I read somewhere that the speech and language defaults have to be the same. I have my language set to Swedish because I use a swedish keyboard. Could that be significant. I enclose a link to some screen shots which may be of use. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ywo72afhfay2c79/AABDGnjMUkK6ClKQgVCGNENca?dl=0 JSMcWilliam
  5. OK - followed your map and now have the speech properties/recognition window: Microsoft Speech Recogniser 8.0 (English - UK). I have English - US as default and tried to change this to English - UK in Settings/Speech but it defaults back to the US version so I changed the Recogniser option to English - US. In the Speech Properties Window I cannot delete my profile. New and Train Profile are available so I could perhaps overwrite the existing profile. I ran the Train Profile option. None of the Settings are selected and the mic seems to be active (Realtek High Definition Audio). Finally, I after restart, I ran the sim with the Majestic Q400, started FS2Crew and proceeded to the Before Start Checklist. When I got to "Fasten Seat Belts Switch" and responded with "ON" this was not recognised. "Set and Checked" worked! JSMcWilliam.
  6. Hi Bryan, I have a problem trying to open the Speech Recognition feature of Windows 10. The icon appears with the text "Starting Speech Recognition" and after a few seconds the text changes to "OFF". I have tried openning the feature in the Control Panel but when I click on the option nothing happens. I then tried through Start/Settings/Speech/Microphone/Getting Started to troubleshoot the problem. I chose the options: - Setting up the mic., Cortana can't hear me, Microphone (Realtek High Definition)... I speak the text and get the answer: "Your mic might need to be setup" and then "Fixed", however, I still cannot get to the recognition training page. I have run FS2Crew along with P3Dv5.1 and the Majestic Q400 and it works normally but still has difficulty in accepting my pronunciation of "ON". I am using English (US) as the default language along with a Swedish keyboard. Help!! John McWilliam
  7. No, for some reason I have been using EU speech. JSMcWilliam
  8. I am a longterm used of FS2Crew under P3Dv5.1, using the aircraft PMDG 737 NGXu and the Majestic Q400. I have a consistent and irritating glitch which crops up regularly and does not improve with time. When my response to an item in a checklist is "ON" the program does not recognise me and I have to respond with "Set and Checked" in order to proceed - that is, 9 times out of ten. Every now and then I manage to get my intonation right and my response is accepted. Is there any way FS2Crew can lower the tolerance level for my pronunciation of "ON" (Scottish) or is this a problem for Microsoft? JSMcWilliam
  9. I fly with P3Dv5.1 under Windows 10 and with FS2Crew and VOXATC. This question applies to both the Q400 and the PMDG 737 NGXu. Having entered a flightplan including a cruise altitude I am given altitude clearances from VOXATC - both during the climb and the descent. I then use FS2Crew, "Set FL XXX", to set the new altitude clearance in the autopilot. Every now and again I get the response from FS2Crew: "Are you sure?" I then have to set the new altitude manually. Is there any explanation for this? JSMcWilliam
  10. Still no update of Rex Textures for P3D v5.1 I have ASP3D and am not happy with the visuals which are hazy and lack distinct clouds. Is there an alternative, for example, can REX Weather Force provide a better experience? John McWilliam
  11. Is there anyone out there who has a remote setup of p2atc and runs FS2Crew. I would be interested to know how this is done. FS2Crew requires the mic to be plugged into the sim pc whereas P2Atc requires the mic to be plugged into the remote. John
  12. I run FSX-acceleration on a Windows 7 (64-bit) PC and am learning the Q400 together with FS2Crew. I have an irritating reply on one of the checklists which wants to confirm that the APU is OFF. I do this by pressing the PWR button on the APU which I understand is the correct method, however, FS2Crew always comes back at me with "Are you sure?" Why, what have I omitted.? /JSMcWilliam/
  13. I fly NGX 800/900 WL frequently and I have never had this problem before and have been using it successfully together with FS2Crew and FSiPanel. After Installing the Majestic Q400 and its FS2Crew as well assoc. Navgraph data it has ceased to give guidance information. Should I reinstall or is there another explanation? jsmcwilliam
  14. Copied some data onto the spreadsheet for you to check out before I continue. There did not seem to be a way of saving the changes so I don't know if you will get them. Sent a mail at the same time but uncertain if it goes to the right person and for that reason am write you again here. Questions: 1. In order to get my gross weight down to 15000 lbs I had to remove all passengers and bagage and could not carry enough fuel to get to FL260 (200l). I topped up after reaching FL230 with 60l and had 47l still in the tank at FL260. Is this the right procedure? 2. Unsure whether ASN installed the right ISA profile. The cabin indicated a TAT of -37C at FL260 and according to my manual profile in ASN I should have had -42.5 at FL240 and -54.4 at FL300 i.e. approx --45C. however, this may be a misunderstanding on my part. How can I check this and should FSX weather be set up for "User defined weather"? JSMcWilliam (SAS1629)
  15. Thanks again. I think I can start now and plan to begin with 15000 lbs@98%. It will take me a few runs to finetune the procedure so don't expect any results to be posted for a day or two. JSMcWilliam (SAS1629)
