  1. The FLYSIMWARE Lear35A Info folder is actually stored at C:\Users\Public\Desktop. However, a folder icon with that name should show up on your 'regular' desktop, but will not show up in a simple list of the files on the regular desktop since the folder is not actually stored there. Strange, but that's as best as I understand it. Al
  2. Light bleeding from the 'outside' to the 'inside' is a common problem in P3Dv4.x because of the new lighting system they implemented in P3Dv4. The degree to which this happens depends on how close the light source is to 'where you are' in the a/c. In the case of the MU2, there is a beacon right below the VC, so you do see the beacon in the cockpit. Currently the only solution in P3Dv4 for the MU2 is to turn off the beacon. Al

    Flysimware got a new texture artist

    A possibility down the road, perhaps ........ Al
  4. Alex, I think I now know what is 'going on'. It turns out that because they changed the lighting system in P3dv4.4, external light, like from a beacon, can shine into the interior model depending on how close the light source is to 'where you are' in the model -- this is a known P3D4.4 issue. So in the Falcon, I can see the beacon if I go back into the cabin because the beacon is located on the tail. But apparently the VC is far enough away from the beacon so I don't see it in the VC. Also, ver 1.5b of the Falcon has 'smaller' lights then the original release, so depending on what version you have, that may also make a difference. FSW will be releasing an update soon for the Falcon 50, so that may change what you are seeing. Al
  5. Strange - don't know why the difference on what we see. I have version 1.5b of the Falcon -- what version do you have? Maybe others can comment on what they see regarding the 'beacon in the cockpit' issue. Al
  6. Alex, What sim are you using? I don't see the strobe or rotating beacon in the VC with either a/c in FSX-SE or P3Dv4.4. Al
  7. I found a bug in the panel_FLYSIM530.cfg file that gets loaded when the GPS 530 is loaded into the Lear35 that is causing the problem with the 2D Options popup as described above. If you are comfortable manipulating files, you can fix this as described below (do this at your own risk, although you can always do a L35 reinstall if necessary). If you are not comfortable doing the below, I'm sure FSW will fix this in the next update. Al For FSX and FSX-SE Open the root FLYSIM Learjet 35A folder in the sim you want to update. Inside this folder you will find a panel folder. Open the panel folder and inside you will find a FLYSIMWARE_CONSOLE folder. Backup the FLYSIMWARE_CONSOLE folder by renaming it (e.g., to FLYSIMWARE_CONSOLE_backup), and then replace it by downloading the zip file below and pasting the new FLYSIMWARE_CONSOLE folder (which is inside the zip file) into the FLYSIM Learjet 35A panel folder. Reload the Lear 35. https://www.dropbox.com/s/x826oabtnpt61ip/FLYSIMWARE_CONSOLE_for_FSX%26FSXSE.zip?dl=0 FOR P3Dv4.4 Open the root FLYSIM Learjet 35A folder in P3Dv4.4. Inside this folder you will find a panel folder. Open the panel folder and inside you will find a FLYSIMWARE_CONSOLE folder. Backup the FLYSIMWARE_CONSOLE folder by renaming it (e.g., to FLYSIMWARE_CONSOLE_backup), and then replace it by downloading the zip file below and pasting the new FLYSIMWARE_CONSOLE folder (which is inside the zip file) into the FLYSIM Learjet 35A panel folder.

  8. The clock works for me although the click spots seem quite small and difficult to find/use, especially the Start/Stop button. The click spots are about in the 5 or 6 o'clock position below the respective buttons. I will ask if the click spots can be made easier to use. If OAT is displayed, click the Mode button to return to the clock function. I was able to set Comm and Nav frequencies with the GPS530, so I don't know why you are having trouble with that. You are correct there is a problem when selecting Start Instructions, Door Instructions or the Payload Manager on the Options 2D Popup. What is strange is I only have this problem when the GPS530 is installed, which suggests there might be an issue with the panel.cfg file that gets loaded when the GPS 530 is loaded (The Lear Management Tool loads a different panel.cfg file with each GPS selection). I have this problem in both FSX and P3Dv4.4. Will see what can be done to fix this. Al

    FSW Lear35A Update 4.1

    Unfortunately, it can take a few days or more for some stores to make the latest version available, especially over a weekend. Al
  10. Yes, the Lear35 GPS management tool is essentially the same as the Falcon 50 management tool expect tailored to provide the possible GPS arrangements that 'fit' the Lear 35 panel. Al
  11. ... has been released to all stores. Version 4.1 incorporates version 4.0 updates and also adds a white ice detection light button on the copilot's side wall along with a new ice detection light on the outside of the plane below the copilot window. And a "black dot" has also been added to the leading edge of the wing near the tip tank. When the ice button is pushed in the real aircraft, the ice detection light shines on the "black dot" to help assess ice accumulation. The operation of the ice detection light is not simulated. Al
  12. Bob, There should be a folder on your Desktop called FLYSIMWARE Lear 35 Info. Run the Lear Management tool inside the folder. Al

    Flashing.....

    For now, after installing the lasting version of the Falcon50, update it with the interior model file at the Test13 link in an above post. Eventually, of course, there will be a new Falcon50 ver to install as a result of the texturing process that is now going on. Al

    Flashing.....

    If I understand correctly what you are saying above, you have not had any flashing so far with FSW aircraft -- is that correct? Thx, Al
  15. There is no longer a way to install the Bendix WX radar into the Lear35. The Bendix radar, which is actually bigger than the Milviz unit, only worked with FSX and FSW moved on to the Milviz WX radar a few years ago. Al
