  1. An update. My group had our online VR flight and we could see each other. So, I am living proof that you can cancel the beta updates and live to tell the tale.
  2. Yes, I have. I have the Steam version and opted out of the Update11 beta, once everyone had updated to the released Update 11. I feared the worst as I have tried to bail out previously when everyone was on 10 and the wheels came off. All I could do was re install or go back into beta, which was what I did with no problems. So now my MSFS seems to be running fine, however all will be revealed when I have my on line VR flying group on Monday morning. They were all Update 10 and whilst I was in beta we couldn't see each other. We had to use JoinFS to see each other. Now they are all update 11, we SHOULD see each other from within MSFS.🤞 Mark
  3. Hi chaps, Well I can happily report that the Y and then F4 to go up ( or F3 for smaller increments ) is the easiest and quickest way to go. One of my crew has just contacted me to show me something he had just discovered and I'll share it with you. Another method added to yours so we have a plethora of choices now. At the top menu, Dev Mode, go to: WINDOWS TELEPORT WINDOWS AIRPORT SELECT AIRPORT (ICAO) SELECT THEN WHEN YOUR PLANE APPEARS, PRESS Y. DONE... AND THE FLIGHT PLAN IS STILL THERE. Thank you so much for your help. Definitely learnt something today. Regards and keep up the flight plans. You have fans here in Australia that have been reading your posts ..........for years ! Mark S., Mark C, Peter, Brent and Steve.
  4. Thank you so much Mike and Jeff. Looks like you've covered some great solutions we'll give a try. Fortunately we don't fly Idaho Dirt Strips on a regular basis. I think the slew in crashed plane position could be the winner and the most convenient. I'm looking forward to trying all the solutions and will report back. We all really got sucked into the immersiveness of VR in P3D ( I also have a full size Learjet 45 simulator running P3D V5 in my shed ) but the lure of the graphics in MSFS was too much to miss out on. Thanks again, Mark S.
  5. Hi all, My flying group ( mainly VR ) needs some advice. We are based here in Australia. We have been flying fortnightly VR flights using P3D V5 but have now moved to MSFS and are running into some 'problems'. I know you all specialise in flying in a wonderful group, so whom better to ask. For our first official flight yesterday, I threw them into the deep end with the Idaho Dirt Strips Revisited flight plan ! Well needless to say we all crashed at certain airports, (did anyone mention Dewey Moore 😲). My/our question is, if you can't already guess, choosing Restart after crashing will take you back to the original airport and then you need to slew to catchup to wherever everyone else is. That is OK as it keeps the flight plan loaded on the GPS, but takes time for everyone to catchup. If we alternatively go back to the World menu and choose the airport to spawn where everyone is that's fine, but NO flight plan on the GPS is loaded. Remember we are VR so we can't easily look at Plan G or Little Navmap and it is easier following the panel GPS with a loaded flight plan. Getting out of VR is doable but multiple times is fraught with danger. Are we missing something or how do people catchup to the others if you are late or behind and still have your flight plan loaded ? Be gentle as we are trying to change our brains from P3D to MSFS. Thanks for any advice. Cheers Mark Speechley
  6. By any chance did you notice the first 'sticky' in this forum regarding Carenado aircraft being used as Ai. If you are near them they can cause your engine to stop. Is that your symptom ?
  7. Just picked up this suggestion over at P3D Forum. I installed and no errors...yet. Worth loading for everyone anyway. https://www.techpowerup.com/download/visual-c-redistributable-runtime-package-all-in-one/ Mark
  8. Oliver, Yes, I get it that you opted for the manual sharing of AI. I just wanted to tell you that we tested it out with the sharing and everything worked like a charm. I had to turn off Traffic in P3D because one of your options was Share All. So, as it implies, all the AI, even the ones generated by P3D that showed up in the main AITX screen, were sent to the clients. That is great as it now gives me more options. My WWII mission on Monday for my flight crew is now achievable. I am flying a Japanese flying boat ( an Emily) with a Rear Admiral around the Solomon Islands inspecting airfields. My other members have three Vought Corsair F4U's and they will try and find me and shoot me down. At least on Monday I will now be able to have an escort of Zero fighters that the Corsairs will be able to see ! I can also send off other Japanese flights using their own flight plans to lure the Corsairs away. That is what I can't thank you enough for making these dreams come true for us old blokes. Thank you again for your help and patience. Mark
  9. Oliver, Got it. I wrongly assumed that as soon as you setup and connect the Server/Client that any AITX added AI would be automatically seen by the clients.You need to manually Share or Share All for them to be seen by the client, as long as they have the same models in their simobjects folder I'll retest on weekend with a client and confirm all good but so far, brilliant. Thanks again Mark
  10. Hi Oliver, Well we followed your instructions. Doing Port forwarding in my router helped. I also put in my Public IP address in the AITX Multiplayer NetworkHandler box instead of accepting the default that showed up when first starting. So now we are further down the track but not quite there yet. Only using AITX ( with me being the server ) , we can see each others plane. Also the dialogue boxes for Server and client see each other and we can chat in the chat box. However. The client cannot see any of my AI aircraft I add via AITX. Not sure what to do next ? Maybe changing to another port ? We'll have this sorted soon. Thanks for your help and advice Mark
  11. Thank you Oliver. Great instructions. Here in Australia, must be off to bed now. Hopefully one of my client aircrew can test with me tomorrow so I'll report back as soon as we've tried. Sounds straight forward enough. Best regards Mark
  12. Oliver, Thanks for the reply. A V5 installer would just make the old guys more 'relaxed' making things automatic. If V4 should work that'll be OK. I'll try and explain the problem. We use JoinFS for all of us to join over the internet. I assume that would be in replacement of the Multiplayer button ? As it was I surrounded myself with AI aircraft but the '' client' could see me but not the AI planes. We made sure that he had the same planes in his simobjects folder. So next, whilst still in Join FS, and seeing each other, but not the AI, I clicked on the Multiplayer. Then clicked on server. The clients plane then came up on the main AITX screen of all the AI, but within the Server dialogue box, nothing. He also could not see any of my AI. Also he did not have anywhere to input my ip and port adress if it was needed. Lastly he did not have any menu options show up in P3Dv5, if the client does get any. I hope that makes things a bit clearer So do we copy the V4 AITX client files in documents folder to V5 documents folder or no need. ? Am I duplicating having JoinFS AND clicking on Multiplayer ? Any test we can try to see if V5 can see the client ? I hope this is a little more clearer. Sincerely Mark
  13. Hi Oliver, I have a small online flying group of old retired chaps. I have AITX and I am trying to get the AITX client to work for them, so that can see any AI planes I add around me. We tried last night but without success. There is no installer for P3Dv5 in the client zip. Does that mean it will not work for P3Dv5 or you just haven't made one yet ?. Is there a way we can convert the P3Dv4 installer to work in V5 ? Copy the contents of the Documents\ P3dV4 addons to Documents\ P3Dv5 addons., or it can't be that easy ? We use JoinFS as our online platform I welcome your suggestions. Mark
  14. Yep. Installed in P3D v5. I have checked a few airports and seems to have 'taken', so far all good.

  16. Retired Chiropractor and Acupuncturist, just over 2 years now. I've been flight simming since my Commodore Amiga days. Now I have a magnificent full size Learjet 45 cockpit to keep me occupied. I built a purpose built 'hangar' to house it, out in a paddock. When the wife unfurls her infinite list of jobs, she know where to find me............................unfortunately.
  17. I also want to second the PNG strips from ORBX. Yes it is expensive but you can wait for ORBX's deals that come around. It's a once off cost and many hours of enjoyment.and Global means global not just PNG. Also I just purchased Aerosoft Lukla that got released for P3dv4 last week. Wow. If you want to fly out of Lukla and land at added local strips and fly around Everest then fun is coming your way. It is well worth the cost. Australia V2 has 100's of added and upgraded airports. You want desert strips or 'bush' strips then you probably have a lifetime supply right there. Southern Alaska by ORBX also has many small strips. Aerosoft Antarctica has many strips as well. We really are spoilt for choice if you get away from your local comfort zone and explore the world. Yes it costs money but seriously how much pleasure do you get out of this wonderful hobby ? Just think how much a boat and it's on-going cost amount to ! Mark
  18. I downloaded Radar Contact but never installed it so now is my big chance. Thanks for that pointer. Researching elsewhere it is highly suggested that the fix is that we need to install P3D v4.5 Content. I don't know if there are any consequences for doing this as I have only been upgrading the Client for each point. I have so much 'stuff' installed that I might create a total mess. Maybe you and I will be waiting for V5 to get our ATC back or ...............................MS Flight Simulator ! Cheers Mark
  19. Hi JayDub, I've got to say that I too have exactly the same symptoms as you. I noticed it a few weeks ago but have not been able to work out the offending download...I assume. I have reinstalled the P3D v4.5 client to no avail. I have just gotten on without using ATC which is not a satisfactory solution. I'll be waiting for any other suggestions as well. Mark
  20. Thanks Barry. I check out Little NavMap and see what help it'll be. We are finalizing our flight Plan (with flexibility). So looks like probably; Cairns Darwin Bali Singapore Ho Chi Minh City Hanoi Hong Kong Taipei Shanghai Seoul Northern Japan ...... not sure after that........Juneau. You are a good incentive for me to get on with the pictures as I am going along. I'm using P3D v4.1 so is looking pretty awesome. I have just spent the last day adding a lot of freeware to my mates FSX-SE. It still not a patch on P3D. He is retired so he doesn't want to spend any money yet so he doesn't have any ground texture software just Soft Clouds from Rex. Thanks for your on going communication, we'll keep in touch. Regards Mark
  21. Barry That is one thing about our hobby is that we have a choice of the whole world to fly. My co builder and I have just started out first tour together from YWSL (West Sale) in Victoria, Australia and finishing in Juneau, Alaska flying via Asia. We have already completed 3 legs. West Sale to Sydney. Sydney to Brisbane and thirdly Brisbane to Cairns via Hamilton Island. We are getting quite excited as you would've been flying to new destinations, making sure your fuel is sufficient for each leg, NAV aids, COM freq. Also after working out a Flight Plan then scouring the file libraries for any scenery or airports along the route. Basically Australia, PNG, Indonesia, Philippines, Japan, Russia and finally Alaska. How hard could that be ? Any pointers if I have missed something then drop me a reply. btw I was in Florida for real 2 years ago Jacksonville, Orlando, Cape Canaveral. I'm afraid that travelling around the world did not make Florida one of the highlights for flying. The flatness was a bit hard as a selling point, especially as I had just flown from Tucson which was quite interesting. America has such a wonderfully diverse range of scenery. In the sim I like to do Bozeman-Jackson Hole-West yellowstone-Lake Tahoe. Too much choice. When I introduce new people to my sim I like to start off with Skagway to Haines. Short but WOW factor as long as you have all the required ORBX installed. Mark
  22. Thanks for that. I'll keep checking back occasionally to see how you're going. Nothing worse than having a slow internet holding us all back. I will definitely be in my grave once everything is instant. At the moment I have the most fun flying around Papua New guinea using ORBX Jackson Airport, EMO mission and ORBX Tapini. Well worth the fun of bush flying esp in a Learjet ! Another fun flight is Iceland and trying to land at Isafjordur airport BIIS. Where are you based ? I'm in Victoria, Australia. Regards Mark
  23. I enjoyed following your tour. I for one would really appreciate it if you could finish off the album. If I don't repeat your whole trip, then at least it gives some of us great short leg trips. I fly a Learjet 45 in a home made cockpit so I should be able to complete the legs quicker. Regards Mark
  24. I have very little to no stutters, but I assume the stutters are down to your settings for texture, cloud, AI, shadows etc. As for bezel correction it is with surround mode.
