  1. That is strange as for the 1st time I CAN start the engines in 1.2 In both 1.0 and 1.1 I had to use the Shift+7 then select start start left engine in 1.2 although I have only tried it 2 time both engines start and after a few second drop to expected torque this is also with P3D V4.2 Regards Bob

    Hi Thanks for these. Is there a trick to get them working with the lite version? I tried but the textures don't appear to be correct. Thanks Bob

    vor / dme code sound

    Hi all Can someone inform me as to how you turn on the VOR / DME sound to say when the navigation position is within range? I can work it fine however there is no Morse code sounds which other add-on give. Thanks in advance if you can help. The other issue I have with this add on is the engines starting issue that others on the forum have noted ie not starting or when they do start running so hard the full brakes cant hold the the aircraft still. I have to say although I am enjoying the addon it does feel as though it has been a rushed release. Regards Bob

    LITE eye point in wrong place

    Hi I also had this and changed the following in the aircraft config file: Original [Views] // completed eyepoint = 24.2, -1.5, -1.7 //(feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from reference datum change to [Views] // completed eyepoint = 26.9, -1.5, -1.7 //(feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from reference datum I recommend you make a copy of the original aircraft file as a safe guard. Please note I have no idea why this is required as the full version was fine after the update and both were fine pre update. Hope this helps Bob

    Hi I am not using chase plain I edited the following line in the aircraft config file: Original [Views] // completed eyepoint = 24.2, -1.5, -1.7 //(feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from reference datum change to [Views] // completed eyepoint = 26.9, -1.5, -1.7 //(feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from reference datum I recommend you make a copy of the original aircraft file as a safe guard.

    Version 1.1 released

    Hi all After updating my eye point in the lite version was changed. (I was almost standing in the fire wall behind the cockpit.) Did anyone else notice this. I fixed it by editing the eye point setting in the aircraft config file so it was not a major issue. Please note the full version eye point was fine after updating. Best wishes Bob
  10. Hi As requested tried it in windows 8 compatibility mode and it made no difference. I still got the unable to create child window as soon as the sim started. Regards Bob Laycock
  11. The update did not fix mine as well I guess its another month of no flight sim Regards Bob Laycock
  12. Thanks so much for the update. I was one that the DC-6 was not recording hours so I am looking forward to seeing how long the engines etc will last. Best wishes Bob Laycock

    GPS Moving map qustion

    Hi I also had difficulties getting the moving map to display, but if you hold the mouse at the very bottom of the inner right nob and rotate the mouse wheel (or right click) I found it comes up fine. Hope this helps Bob Laycock

    GPS 400

    Hi all Does the default PMDG GPS 400 have a map view? and if so how do you get it to display? I cant seam to get one to display. Thanks Bob Laycock
  15. Hi all Firstly this is a magnificent add on which I am really enjoying. Well done PMDG. However I have one small issue, which is certainly no show stopper but a little annoying My DC-6 does not record / Save the Engine / Propeller / Airframe health or hours. Each time I start the sim with the same repaint I get a fresh DC-6. As I say, not a show stopper, but I was kind of looking forward to seeing how long I could make the machinery last. I have left a ticket in support but I don’t expect a fast response given the other commitments the PMDG team currently have. I was hoping others hear may be able to point me in the correct direction as to what may be going on. I have tried uninstalling and re installing with no success. The only clue I have, is that when I go into the PMDG control centre the first time after installing and loading the sim I get an error about the repaint (even the default PMDG repaint), I select repair and it adds the info to the end of the aircraft config file. So the aircraft info is in the file in two places Thanks in advance if you can help Bob Laycock
