  1. I've been out of the sim for over a year and just getting back in. In the Ops Center it tells me that my NGX, 747V3 and 777 need updated. When I click on "Install Update" for the products, a black window with some text code pops up for a couple seconds and then that's it. So then I run the sim (fsx) thinking they were updated but nothing was changed. So I exit fsx and run the Ops Center again and it gives me the same notifications that my products need updated. What gives? I thought this op center thing was supposed to be convenient? How do I update? Thanks

    CJ2 Framerate issues

    This fixed the problem for me. I was running in compatibility mode for windows 8 (i am running windows 10). Works like it should now. THANK YOU!!!
  4. I installed the CJ2 correctly without issue (antivirus off during installation, no errors). When I load the CJ2 in FSX the frame rate drops below 1 and basically freezes the sim. I have to exit the sim completely and re start a new flight. All other aircraft work great, only the CJ2 causing problems. Specs are Windows 10 Pro, i7 6700 4Ghz, NVIDIA GTX 1070, 16gb ram. Any help would be great. Thanks.
  5. Hello, I just installed the mod and everything loads and looks correct but now the frame rate is about 1 fpm. Any ideas? I had this problem when I first installed the CJ2 and the solution was deleting the carenavigraph.dll from the main fsx folder. Thanks,

    panels.dll CTD help

    Thanks for your quick reply, Jim. I tried as you suggested and it did not help, it actually made the fatal error occur much faster. This time it occurred immediately after loading the A2A C172. I am pretty sure at this point it is something to do with that aircraft only since no others seem to be effected. Particularly one livery even seems to be more problematic than others. I am going to try uninstalling and reinstalling the A2A Cessna and go from there. Otherwise, any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hello, I've been battling a fatal error in FSX caused by a panels.dll module failure.

    iPad for Flight One GTN 750?

    Thanks Fabian. Do you have to run in windowed mode with this app?
  10. I am building an enclosed home GA cockpit sim and I want to intergrate the GTN 750 for use in the cockpit via iPad or iPhone. Anybody know the best way to accomplish this? (FSX) Thanks!
  11. Good morning Gents, Unfortunately I've been called into work today and won't be able to participate in the flight at the scheduled time. I'm so sorry. I will still complete the flight only I will have to do it solo later today.

    727-100/200 no sound no matter what I do...

    Update: Fixed. Major thanks to Brian G. for his help with this. For all of those who are plagued by this sound problem here is how I fixed it: I was missing msvcr71.dll from Windows/SysWOW64 (specific location for Windows 7 64 bit) I found the msvcr71.dll download here: http://www.addictive...r-in-windows-7/ As the instructions suggested, I placed the files in Windows/SysWOW64. I started FSX, loaded the 727, then loaded it again and now my sounds work.
  14. Good morning, afternoon and evening gents, I've been trying to avoid posting this question here as I have been trying to get a solution from the CS site. Since that has failed I have turned to my fellow Avsim-ers. Long story short I bought the 727 a couple of weeks ago and I have not had any cockpit sounds since. The APU, altitude warning, switches, knobs, etc all have no sounds. I have tried everything that has been suggested so far all without any luck. I have tried loading the aircraft twice, loading the default trike first and then the 727 and then re loading the 727 and I have changed SoundOffWhenSimInSlew=0 and still no cockpit sounds. I have owned this bird for 2 weeks and still have yet to hear any of the sounds inside the cockpit. I have lost faith in the CS product and their support but I would still like to try and salvage any remaining value that I can out of this product. If anybody can help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.
