  1. I haven't yet upgraded to v5; I'm still flying v4.5 with no problems. I will be interested to hear if, in your opinion, Stan, v5 is worth the change. Thanks. Scott
  2. TacomaSailor, I could have have written your post a couple months ago as the flying you do almost exactly describes my interests. I very recently replaced my Saitek yoke with the VirtualFly Yoko + yoke. So far, I’m loving it. Aside from the feel of the yoke, including the smoothness and fluidity of the mechanism’s movement, which is a huge improvement over the Saitek yoke, the control of the ailerons and elevators is much finer than that of the Saitek. I even found that I no longer need/want to use the FSUIPC slope adjustment/ calibration with the Yoko + because the control input into the sim (P3Dv4.5) seems much more natural without any additional configuration modification (FSUIPC slope adjustment). I have no regrets replacing the Saitek yoke with the Virtual Fly Yoko +.
  3. I updated (Uninstalled/downloaded client.msi/installed) just the client to the current Version (which I assume is HF3) available on the LM P3D website, and things did not work correctly. (My P3Dv4.5 HF2 installation had become corrupt during my instrument panel upgrade, so that may have been why). Anyway, I downloaded/installed the entire P3D software and was pleasantly surprised to see that I did not have to do much of anything with regards to my add on scenery/aircraft it was all still intact! Go figure. I should probably mention that I had, a few years ago, moved all of my scenery to outside the sim folder.
  4. Conventional wisdom suggests having multiple SSDs, one for OS, one for flight sim sw, and maybe even one for scenery outside of the flight sim Drive. Some folks put XP, FSX, P3D, etc on different drives.
  5. I saw the dimensions for the Yoko Plus Yoke on The Virtual Fly Website, but I assume they are overall dimensions. Would somebody please provide me with the dimensions of just the box (not including the actual yoke “handle”)? Not the box the unit ships in, but the metal box containing the mechanicals and electronics. Thanks much. Scott
  6. Sorry to say that I do not; I have only one pair. The Thrustmaster website says a computer should be able to deal with up to four pair (8 total) MFDs.
  7. I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I have a little experience with multiple monitors and multiple GPUs in a single PC. You didn’t mention what software you’re running (P3D, FSX, XP, ...). When I tried to run 4 monitors / 2 GPUs, FSX and FSX:SE consistently struggled a little and was unflyable, regardless of settings. At 5 monitors, FSX crashed instantly. I also tried a single GPU with 6 outputs; same results. On P3D, I brought in a 2nd PC and put one GPU in each, connecting them together via my home LAN and using WidevieW. That got all 5 monitors working. That’s what I experienced.
  8. I read several items here regarding a transparent C208 VC, but I haven’t seen any definitive solution to the problem. P3Dv4.5. I’ve downloaded/installed multiple times, ensuring correct serial number. Is there a solution? Thanks.
  9. I'm guessing there will be no surprise when I tell you that fixed it! No more helpful error messages! Thank you!
  10. When I start P4AO, I get: "Errors detected in config file(s)! Exe.xml. There is an error in XML document (13,2). Contents will not be visible!" When I click OK, I still seem to go into P4AO and do what I need to do... What does this mean? Should I care? At …\AppData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D\exe.xml reads as follows: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>exe.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_btstrp_config_manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp_config_manager.exe</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>exe.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>AICarriers</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>F:\AI Carriers\AICarriers.exe</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> Thanks much. Scott
  11. Thanks everyone, for the replies. It seems that every time I fire up the sim, I learn something new!
  12. I recently added REX Environment Force. I can’t say for sure that there’s a connection between those two, although EF controls shaders and deleting the shader folder (forcing P3D to create a new one) fixed my problem.
  13. Based on a reply on the ORBX Forum... I deleted the folder …\AppData\Local\LockheedMartin\P3Dv4\Shaders. Started P3Dv4. Problem fixed. Thanks!
  14. P3Dv4.5, ORBX Global Base, various OpenLC areas, various ORBX regions, many ORBX airports. Regardless of where I start a flight, textures are black. Mountains are black covered with "gray" trees. I can discern black rivers and gray building. Runways/taxiways look okay. Doesn't matter if I start a flight on an ORBX airport or in a non-ORBX location (excluding ORBX Global, of course). I uninstalled/re-installed Global Base Pack using ORBX Central. No joy. I used the Sync with simulator function and updated ORBX libraries. I posted this on the ORBX Forum too; awaiting a response. How do I fix this? Thanks. Scott
