  1. As the saying goes, you will never be able to please everyone! There's obviously people that should stay with FSX if they don't like the evolution of a flight sim. But then I'm sure they will find something else to complain about. I'm wholeheartedly grateful that we have a consistently maintained and developed sim! Never had any problems with any of the updates in the past and always waited for my add-ons to be updated, if required, before upgrading P3D. Definitely looking forward to see what else LM will bring us!
  2. A year ago I sold my 1070 for $500 on Kijiji and bought a 1080ti from a buddy for $900. I was good with the deal seeing that 1080ti's were in the 1100-1300 range back then. This card I bought was only 2mos old. He decided to buy a completely new Dell PC which came with 1080ti and didn't need both. I've been quite happy with it since!
  3. That's what it was! Thanks for the tip. All good now. Cheers!
  4. Greetings, I followed the following instructions to add the GTN to the Duke Turbine but the VC panel is still not right. Here is what the VC panel looks like: Not quite right... Any ideas? Cheers.
  5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ICAO_aircraft_type_designators Nothing found here for the -8F Cargo. Maybe not updated yet.
  6. On Simbrief the designated code is B48F, Is this just a Simbrief thing or is this the official ICAO code? There has to be some sort of unique code to distinguish between PAX and cargo in the real world and in our online community. That's what I'm trying to figure out.
  7. I know the PAX variant is B748. What is the Cargo variant?
  8. Started another flight and there seems to be no problem now. I'll chalk it up to possibly corrupt scenery indexes. Always have and always will give latitude Kyle. I appreciate the support. It was just coincidence in that particular situation. Cheers, Todd.
  9. Interesting... It's pointing to the terrain.dll. I did have the terrain enabled on the ND display while climbing out to watch for the mountains to the North. P3D also did a rebuild of my scenery indexes as I enabled PANC scenery before starting the flight. Problem signature Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: Prepar3D.exe Application Version: Application Timestamp: 5bfdbb35 Fault Module Name: terrain.dll Fault Module Version: Fault Module Timestamp: 5bfdbaa6 Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 000000000000c6da OS Version: 10.0.17763.

  10. Greetings, Just experienced my first CTD with this bird. All up to date with the latest patches. Just took off from PANC. Decided to log into the Charts section of the EFB using my Navigraph account and started browsing the charts. Never really used that feature previously be cause I have a secondary PC which I use instead. This time I logged in and started to browse and that's when the CTD occurred. Doesn't give ya the warm and fuzzies when you use a big feature for the first time and crashes your sim. I've flown many hours, crash free, with the bird already. Only difference, did not use the EFB chart feature. Hmmm... Any ideas? Cheers, Todd.
  11. Thanks Jean-Luc. That's what i assumed but just wanted to verify I wasn't missing anything. It would be cool if a connection could be made to AS! 😉
  12. @Bert Pieke @RXP Thanks for the help. I was able to resolve all my issues.... except the "Weather" icon on the main Menu is still greyed out. Does that function work in our Sim?
  13. That's why I didn't see it. I've never heard of the acronym "TCAD" hence not looking for. After doing a quick check it stands for "Traffic Collision Alert Device: This passive installed system is no longer in production but it was the first affordable traffic system for GA." Was this the same in the GNS 530? I can't recall because it just worked for me.
  14. Hi Jean-Luc, Thanks for the reply. I did find the AFMS section in the configuration menu and it was all unselected. I checked it all using VNAV rather than VCALC and will see if that makes any difference in my next flight.
  15. Hi Bert, Thanks for the reply I'm not sure what "GUI" you're referring to. I haven't seen anything regarding "TCAS" in any menu's with the GTN. Same goes with Wind, there are no fields that I can find that displays Winds of any kind. The only item that I can find regarding "Weather" is on the main menu which is completely greyed out(un-selectable).
