  1. Hello all, I know this thread is a bit older but... I just got this scenery and read through this thread and I have a question, is the consensus that it's "best" to remove the old KMCO while using this airport? Or should it be left as is? thanks
  2. Hey everyone, I just built a Z690 system and am getting ready to move everything to that new PC, I'm just going to format my Flight sim drive I have and then move the drive to the new PC and reinstall MS2020 there. Is the thing to do here just to uninstall the 414, and then re-install it on the new pc, is there anything else I need to do? or is it necessary to uninstall it at all? I bought it from the FSW store. thanks
  3. EDIT!! Ok that worked!! It was in fact a conflict on my HOTAS throttle, BUT with the auto pilot, somehow the auto pilot got mapped to my flaps button/switch? strange..... Anyways, it's working now!! thanks guys!! Everything's working perfectly.
  4. Humm, I don't use 3rd part liveries, not for any plane. I have the HOTAS Warthog set with some ThrustMaster peddles, but I have been using them for several years now with no issues. I'll check my profiles and see if that turns up anything, and then I'll empty my community folder and try it with just the TDS, VERY strange that it was just working a week ago, and now just after updating it has issues. Almost feels like it MUST be something in the community folder. thanks for the tips y'all, I'm going to do some more testing.
  5. Hello all, I just updated to MSFS SU10 yesterday and last night I tried to do a quick flight in the 414 and for some reason I can't use my elevator trim at all, it's stuck at one point. I've had it mapped to my flight stick since I got it and has always worked, but now I can't even move it with the mouse control, I can roll it with the mouse, but then it rolls right back like it's centered for some reason? I tried: Uninstalling and reinstalling with the latest file downloaded from my account page. Uninstalled and reinstalled the TDI GTNXi, and the Garmin demo. (JIC this might have had some sort of an effect) I also updated with a clean community folder and replaced the files after the SU10 update. It also seems as if my auto pilot is stuck on? BUT all the other control surfaces and trims work? Re-mapping the trim to another button. any ideas? and thanks for any help.
  6. Hello again Symbol, I did find a folder in my P3Dv5 folder that has those 2 folders in it, the paths are these: I:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Development Tools\Traffic Toolbox I:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Development Tools\Visual FX Tool They look to have been made by my Traffic app, from Just Flight? (I guess?) And I found the 2 offending entries in my C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\add-ons.cfg file, but they look like this: [Package.8] PATH=Development Tools\Visual FX Tool ACTIVE=true REQUIRED=false [Package.9] PATH=Development Tools\Traffic Toolbox ACTIVE=true REQUIRED=false So, I copied the actual paths and changed the entries in the .cfg, and now everything works!! So, I assume, for some reason those paths were just entered in the .cfg wrong? BUT, instead of deleting them I decided to change the paths JIC they might be needed in the future for whatever reason. Anyways, EVERYTHING is now working, thanks so much for helping me fix this!! I think I understand how this works a bit better now, so if it happens again, I can fix it myself. thanks man!!
  7. I just checked in my Documents/P3Dv5 Add-ons folder, and this is the xml for the AI lights in there: (NOTE, the AI lights also must have made a P3Dv4 Add-ons folder because I now have one of those, and I don't and never have had V4 installed) I have no idea if everything in here is correct or not, but the path is right: <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>FSReborn AI Traffic Lights Effects Professional edition. Installed version 1.2.0, for support please visit our website at www.FSReborn.com</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>EXE</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\FSRebornConfigChecker.exe</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\AI Lights Effects V5</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Texture</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\AI Lights Effects V5\texture</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\FSRebornObjects V5</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>ShadersHLSL</Category> <Path>I:\Program Files\AI Lights Reborn Professional Edition\FSRebornHLSL V5</Path> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> Also: Is this the visual FX tool that you were referring too? Because I have no idea how it got there or how to (or if I should) remove it?
  8. Hello Symbol thanks for the reply. I'm not sure about the visual FX thing, I'm using pretty much all the same add-ons as in my previous install, nothing new, how can I check to see if I have a Visual FX tool in my P3Dv5 dir? I am installing a lot of my addons on a storage drive as opposed to my C drive though, is that what you mean by "relative paths"? Last time the addons almost filled my C drive, so I got a nice 2tb gaming drive to hold most of my add-ons, my Orbx library and stuff like that anyways, it seems to be working, I just get the error when starting the AI lights app, so if it's just a warning than I can live with it.
  9. Hello all, I have installed my P3Dv5.3 HF1 on it's own drive, and am reinstalling all my add-ons, I got some strange error I have never seen before, it says I have some random "entry" in my P3d add-ons .cfg. but i have checked and I don't see it. I have the latest AI lights installer and P3Dv5.3 HF1 is installed and working properly. I'll try to attach a pict for further support. thanks, Rob https://i.imgur.com/yvCyHYp.jpg
  10. Hey Dave, thanks for the fast reply. Should I uninstall the update? or just install the full installer over the top? Is this the one: setupP2A_2623_x64_R2_with_Navigraph_1801
  11. Hello all, I have installed P3D and MSFS on my new pc and installed the latest FSUIPC. I installed this file "Pilot2ATC_Update_2623_x64_R2" and got the app registered, but I get a message on startup: But the program starts up after I close the error, and Navigraph sees the app and updated it to the latest data. What did I do wrong? Did I install the wrong file? If so, what should I do next? thanks, Rob
  12. Hey guys, I know this is an old thread but I have a problem with getting this Global AI ship package to work on my P3Dv5.3 I followed the instructions and downloaded the xml file, and put in in the "Global_AI_Ship_Traffic_V2" folder, then copied the folder to the P3Dv5 addons folder in my Docs, an enabled it when I started P3Dv5, but I keep getting this error for some reason: thanks for any help.
  13. Oh man, this I didn't know. I'm glad you gave me a heads up!! I thought all I had to do was deactivate P3D5. So I will deactivate most of that stuff from addon manager, but I don't remember seeing the PMDG stuff in there. I always use their manager/installer. thanks for the help, it's been awhile since I have had to do this. Got it, thanks RXP!!
