    FSX starts to load but then disappears...

    Sometimes FSX loads, but doesn't maximize. Try opening task manager, right clicking on the app and maximize it. It's frustrating, but I don't have a why.

    Traffic Global Early Access Edition

    It appears that GA traffic will only use the default aircraft. Hopefully, they will change that. Otherwise, I'll continue with UT2, which allows me to insert my own aircraft.
  3. Unfortunately not so easy. LMN doesn't read data from folders. The Navigraph data is compiled into a database file that LMN reads. The database is similar to what LMN creates when the the user 'loads' a simulator database. Adding a different data source would require Alex creating a compiler to transform the NavDataPro data into the database format and maintain it. I think this is what he is referring to in his reply. BTW, LMN is open source so I someone else could possibly create the necessary compiler. Of course, they would need to agree to maintain it because it would be uncool to create, then dump and run expecting Alex to maintain it. IMHO.. Ernie
  4. Probably not. The Navdata that LNM uses either comes from Navigraph already in LNM usable format, or is extracted from the flight simulator and formatted by LNM. Or course I'm not Alex and he may have something up his sleeve. :-) As for my recommendation, spring for the Ultimate package. Update all of your add-ons and do manual downloads of the current AIRAC then cancel your subscription. Ernie

    P3d Starts on 2nd Monitor

    Capt. Pero only occasionally visits this forum since it isn't the official SIMstarter NG forum. Your best bet for a quick(er) answer would be the official forum on Aerosoft. Ernie

    Updated Manuals URGENT

    A bit surprised that you feel that way about FSX being as it probably provided a fair share of the past revenue for FS2Crew. Ah well, more money to be spent elsewhere.. Ernie

    Although Capt. Pero does visit this forum your best bet for a quick(er) answer would be the official forum on Aerosoft. Ernie

    FSX Airplane Loading Issues

    I'm not sure what's causing your issue, but a work around might be to load a default aircraft, such as the C172, Then change to the aircraft you want once you're at the airport you want to fly from. iFly recommends this, as does a couple of other developers of sophisticated aircraft. Ernie

    Some FSX issues

    For the logbook issue I would search for and fsxlogrecovery11.zip in the AVSIM library. As for the others, sorry I can't help. Ernie
  10. Tony, I'm of the opinion that LNM is the "bee's knees" , but for the iPad you might try 'FltPln Go'. It doesn't have near the features and is certainly not a replacement, but I've seen it praised in some of the other forums. Ernie
  11. Alex expressed in an early topic that it could theoretically be done, but would require a huge effort. Given the size of his wish list I don't see it becoming a reality anytime soon. Still, Alex has done some amazing stuff with LNM, so who knows? I understand it will work on a Windows OS tablet if you're open to picking up a new or used one for the purposes of running LNM. Ernie

    AI GA Aircraft

    Yes there are, and I use most if not all of them. The point however was that his new ones are FSX native unlike most of the ones you mentioned, so no fixing the prop, dealing with opaque windows, etc. Besides, Todd seems the only one currently generating new AI GA models, so I felt it was worth a mention.

    AI GA Aircraft

    All of the commercial AI packages that feature GA aircraft use some or only the FSX default aircraft. Not much excitement in seeing the same few liveries over and over again. In the past years, Todd Bolgrin has uploaded 22 AI FSX models to the library. These can easily be added to UT2 and with a bit of effort to MyTraffic for more variety. A third option is AIFP. Ernie
  14. It certainly is a big factor in why I chose XP11 over P3D, as my post FSX simulator. I would have never considered XP10.
  15. LMN's course line is based the flight plan you entered in to LMN. It doesn't read your aircraft's navigation system. If you update the flight plan in your aircraft, then you need to update the flight plan in LMN if you want them to remain in sync.. In the case of 'Direct To', that would involve removing the way-points between where you and and where you want to fly direct to, then re-saving the modified flight plan if you want to keep it.. In real world flying you would need to do the same with your air traffic control flight plan if you were flying under instrument rules.
