  1. Ok, I found the old thread over at Orbx, it shows that this type of crash is not uncommon in new scenery's and as the scenery designer says in this thread, "it's an easy fix". It was the Orbx airport KACK designed by Bill Womack, the thread is here: https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/152040-kack-causing-planes-to-crash/ So he may be able to shed some light on why this happens. I can fly with crash detection off around this area, but it would be cool if eventually it could be worked out. Thanks Bernardo, I'm gonna go check out that shipwreck!! Hope this helps.
  2. Hello again Bernardo, I did some testing and I cannot find the issue. I tried turning off some scenery and turning the mesh resolution to different settings, I also tried several different aircraft. I even tried starting in a parking spot: It just starts the flight and then the airplane crashes. I haven't tried to turn off crash detection yet, I guess I'll try that next time, and I cant find a way to turn off the Global mesh. Some searches on this issue does show that it could be some sort of mesh resolution issue, but who knows. I DO remember one of the Orbx NA airport sceneries doing this on release about a year ago, they DID solve the issue with a patch but I don't remember what the cause was, I DO remember it was something very simple though. I'll see if I can find that old thread.
  3. Hello Bernardo, I will try everything one at a time, It may take me a bit as I have to do some honey-do's today for the wife. So we have to run out for a bit right now, however I will try some of this later in the day, I'll let you know. I did try to load a flight out of MYCC and it did the same thing, so it's not isolated at that airport only. It must just be some kind of conflict with one of those other sceneries. I will find it. I appreciate your time, and I will let you know as soon as I make some progress. Rob
  4. Hello Bernardo, thank you for making this forum. This is my issue (Rob), It seems to happen with every plane I load so it must be a scenery/elevation issue, I have a TON of scenery, (and I do fly with crash detection, I just like the extra realism.) I have installed: Everything from Orbx Global About 90% of Orbx NA (to much to mention) LatinVFR Key West KEYW FlyTampa St Marteen Pilots Global MESH (The latest one) LatinVFR TXKF Bermuda and a TON of other airports in North America and Europe NOTE: I have not yet run the elevation tool from Orbx Vector yet, I can make a short video (I'll remove all the loading screens yada) if needed. BUT please take a look at my scenery list, maybe this can give a clue to why I'm having this issue: Should I move these down under the Orbx stuff?
  5. Yep this is true, I always read through the LM forums before updating to try to limit any issues, I see a lot of people having issues, I am either lucky or there is some other problem, I had one small issue with Orbx, had to reinstall all of the LC's (NOT a major issue but some of the land class was off a bit even after deleting the shader file) BUT I didn't even have to remake my cfg file this time, my sim is running smooth, even with HD Carendao aircraft. I have a pretty strong self built system, and I use Process Lasso (paid) with a profile set up for P3Dv4, I use the last 6 cores for my sim and the first 2 for all UTL, EFB2 maps, GTN's yada yada and it works great, SO maybe that's the difference, not sure, BUT I won't need the hot fix that Rob McCarthy said LM is working on, I'm going to hold at 4.5 proper for a good while, unless they come up with some major update, OR like you said they patch everything for that...lol. You might want to go ahead and at least download the current version, JIC they make things worse. **knocks on wood** it can't hurt. 😉 thanks again AL, happy flying!! PS: Just got the Flight1 GNS complete, gonna go try it out now and see if it works.
  6. True, true, I should not have said dragging their feet, I'm not usually that pushy. It's just frustrating that they are not ready to go, as most others were this time, when the update has been known about for months. Just frustrated that's all. And thank you for locating this for me, since this is the recommended procedure for updating it should be safe to try it. And then when the update is ready it'll just be a matter of install and fly!! I find the REX website hard to navigate sometimes, maybe it's just me though, very limited on free time lately. PDv4.5 is working VERY good for me, it was a long awaited update performance wise, at least for me it was. Even got a new 1TB hard drive to make things even better. Thanks for keeping me humble Al, and digging up that info!! I do truly appreciate it. RobC
  7. I have the same issue, and REX seems to be dragging their feet on this so, I wonder, can I just uninstall the Wx Radar? Will this fix the crashing? I would try it but I would rather ask to see if someone might know already, JIC it could mess something up. thanks
  8. Hey thanks for the tip gaab, I found all those settings on pg 9, I already have all my buttons used up on my throttle and flight stick, but I bound them to my G buttons on my keyboard, so I have engine 2 reverser, spoiler extend and spoiler retract, and my go around all mapped out. Thanks man!! Just flew a quick flight after a good startup (didn't make any mistakes this time) and man what an aircraft, my F1 GTN 750's went right in, even the Wx radar tied right in easily. One thing I have to figure out though, the ATC referred my aircraft as 0 (Zero), I have to figure out whats going on, maybe it's because I didn't have a flight plan in my GTN? anyways, I'll figure it out, I have to go familiarize myself with all of the settings/readings on the gauges, and find out the max altitudes and cruse speeds yada yada. then it's time for a long flight. so much detail in this one!!
  9. Never mind I figured it out, you can delete this thread. Turns out I had to calibrate the throttle axis in P3Dv4 as well, I forget I am not using the CH control software this time. PEBCAK Works and runs great, now I got to go do some flying!!
  10. First off, very nice aircraft, well done. I wonder are there any startup videos like there was on the Lear jet 35A? I really loved that video it was very helpful for getting started in the aircraft. I have searched and searched and all I fin are Carenado or real life Falcon startup videos. Second and most important, my throttle does not seem to be working properly, I have the CH products throttle, peddles, and combat stick combo, I use it for pretty much all the airplanes I fly, but on this one I can't seem to flip the little red Power Lever Cutoff switches, they flip momentarily and quickly snap back, right click does nothing but jiggle them? I also cannot engage the reverser lever.it has the same behavior. If I move my throttle all three throttles move at once, but I can't seem to control the levers with my mouse at all? Is there a special setup for this airplane that I might need to do, some way to tie some of my buttons do these actions??? I have a button tied to my reverser (reverse thrust) but it does the same wacky thing. any ideas at all? thanks, Rob Comfort
  11. LOL, yeah we have been married for 35 years now and she has always been a stay at home mom for our kids so money has been tight for a long time as ya gotta do for the kids first, but now she's working, and Oculus was on a nice sale last Friday, so she figured she would treat the old man. I mean I don't golf or anything like that as I work a lot, my sport is shooting, so this is my hobby. And by the way, your suggestion of loading my default flight first worked!! THANK YOU!! Synthetic vision is SO COOL!! I am sending Carenado Support a link to this thread, maybe they can figure out why. Thanks man, have a great day!!
  12. Thanks zbychus for taking the time to try and help, you're very kind. I found that other dll.xml, it does have the 3 similar entries to the other one that are listed here, I wonder which dll.xml I'm supposed to remove these from?? lol I'm using P3Dv4.1, I will try loading a default flight and see if that works, I tried Carenado support and they are tying to help as well, they sent me some modified files but so far it hasn't worked. IF I uninstall the SVS my 182T works but not with synthetic view, if I install the SVS the 182T crashes at the runway....very strange. I got the day off for my birthday (and my wife bought me an Oculus!! she is so awesome) so I'll try loading the default flight (to the runway) and then select a new scenario and try the 182T. thanks man, I'll let you know if this works.
  13. Thanks zbychus, I see that now, the OP made a typo in his instructions, I looked in my dll.xml file in that folder and there is only one entry for each, but in the instructions it also says: I was able to resolve my issues: 1. re-download the aircraft (they should say V2.1) 2. re-installed SVS (stand alone version) 3. removed duplicate entries in DDL.XML versions (if you have two DLL.XML files) What does this mean if I have "2" dll.xml files? How can 2 xml files of the same name exist? Is there another folder? Does this mean if I also have a dll.xml.bak? OR DLL_xmlTools64? Sorry for the confusion but I'm not good at this kind of stuff. thanks for any clarification.
  14. OK, I got the error 704 to go away by changing the compatibility from "run as admin" to default, and reinstalling the SVS program. BUT P3Dv4 still crashes with the same error when I load a flight with the C182T HD G1000. See attached error log: Log Name: Application Source: Application Error Date: 11/27/2017 4:45:11 PM Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100) Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: MY-PC Description: Faulting application name: WebSimProcess.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x59b3d100 Faulting module name: libcef.dll, version: 3.2171.1979.0, time stamp: 0x54c09c61 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000000001ced86c Faulting process id: 0x1bf8 Faulting application start time: 0x01d367c8cef7fc35 Faulting application path: F:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\WebSimBrowser\2.1\64\WebSimProcess.exe Faulting module path: F:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\WebSimBrowser\CEF4FSXP3DXP.39\64\libcef.dll Report Id: e83a5b33-64e1-4280-97fc-ee0c791d10d7 All Drivers , Windows updates and DirectX are up to date.

  15. Where is this DDL.xml file located? I searched everywhere for it.
