    CS757 III v1.1 released

    How dose the 757 compare with the Quality Wings 787? I'm looking for a plane for my PREPARED v4.

    Im SOOOOO sad! ;(

    I have FSX SE and with that almost all PMDG Aircraft. When I purchased PREPARED v4 I didn't want to buy the same aircraft again. Since I'm lacking a large jet in the PREPARED v4 Hanger, the QW 787 should be a nice fit.
  4. You're not alone. The FSX SE freezes, I get a white and/or black screen. Not sure if my PREPARED v4 is done for, but I also have these problems when I'm not on the sim, but while using the internet.

    Ultimate Traffic Live Question

    I'm not very computer literate when it comes to files and I'm not sure if you answered my question if it's all automatic or do I bring it up manually. Thanks
  6. I recently purchased Ultimate Traffic Live for my FSX SE and PREPARED v4. Regardless of which sim I choose, UTL is not automatically activated, it has to be turned on before the sim is activated. Is this normal?
  7. Now that I have Prepared v4 along with FSX SE, I find that my Traffic 360 and Ultimate Traffic 2 are both outdated. So now the question is between Traffic Global and Ultimate Traffic Live, which is better. My understanding is that since I already own Traffic 360 and Ultimate Traffic 2, I will be able to use a discount coupon for either one. If there's another payware out there please let me know. Freeware is out because my knowledge of files is weak.

    Ultimate Traffic 2

    " Have you considered creating your own ai setup " I'm not good at all with files, so I won't go there. Before I purchased UT2 I had Traffic 360. Any opinions about Traffic 360?

    Ultimate Traffic 2

    Is Ultimate Traffic 2 compatible with PREPARED v4 and FSX SE? If not is there a traffic program that is?

    An unexpected siting

    I did a flight from VNPK to VNLK ( Lukla ), both in Nepal, flying the DHC6. About fifty-three miles out from my destination there were two areas close to each other with big letters that spelled SPRING. They were large green letters. Also at my destination Lukla was in a large hole which made in very difficult to land safely. The real airport has a mountain on one end of the runway and a cliff on the other end. I have ORBX Global and Vector with PREPARED v4. If someone is up to flying that route, I would like to know if that is a flaw in PREPARED or if it's just me. Thanks

    Freezing up

    I prepared a flight using the A2A Comanche and before I could do anything it froze. I can hear engine running. I can hear the flaps moving but on the screen nothing. One interesting thing that was noticed is that the pause button was working, but even after it was un-paused still showed in the lower left in red letters the word ' Paused '.
  12. I have a higher end computer and my settings are reasonable so I don't think that is the problem. It started with the A2A Comanche. At the very beginning when my Chase Plane camera comes on showing the pilot view, the other cameras don't work. Sometimes the menu bar on top is shown sometimes not either way, I click on it nothing happens. I can hear the engine respond to my command but nothing moves. There was no problem with the A2A Cherokee, did many flights, now it has the same problem. The only way I can get out of this is by Control/ Ault/ Delete. I posted on the A2A Forum because I'm not sure if this is a problem with A2A Aircraft or if it's a Chase Plane problem.

    Avoiding starting engines

    With my a2a planes the planes are already running. I press shift/3 click on ' cold and dark'. Then with the engine idle, I'm able to press shift/7 which brings up the garage to see if there are any problems. Then press shift/4 to add fuel,etc. Then back to shift/3 to click on ' start engine'.
  14. Thank you very much for your speedy reply.
  15. I keep everything that is not simulator on the ( C ) Drive. My FSX SE is on the ( F ) Drive. My PREPARED v4 is on the ( E ) Drive. Which drive do I install the Little NavMap? Or do I install it in both ( E ) and ( F ) Drives? Thank you.
