  1. Ok, thanks Dave. I will try my "Country/Regional" setup for my next flight between 2 or 3 countries. For transoceanic ATC : I think it would be a nice feature to have for a future version of Pilot2ATC. It involves adding a "zone" feature in the sim, allowing to define a geometric zone related to a chat folder. Other ATC softwares (for example, Pro-ATC-X) are doing that. Pilot2ATC is far more complete on several aspects, this feature would be nice to have. And for version after, an implementation of NAT routes 🙂 (ok, maybe I am asking a bit too much)
  2. Thanks Dave for your reply 🙂 I think I will use the Country structure, and duplicate the Regions Controllers folder from ATC-X-Chatter in each country where I do not have enough country sound files. That way, all "generic" countries will use the Region sound files provides by X-ATC-Chatter. Will involve many files duplication but using Windows symbolic/junction links, will avoid real duplication. Another question : do you have an advice on how to use oceanic chatter (Gander, Shanwick, ...) used when crossing Oceans ?
  3. Hi all, I own and use Pilot2ATC and X-ATC-Chatter with Flight Simulator (2020) and really enjoy it with all my IFR flights. God job and expecting new versions :) I would like to add more mp3 files in the chatter. I have a lot of those MP3 files and would like to add them for use. Now the combination P2ATC/XATCChatter uses regions folder, with Controllers folders inside each regions. I would like to add specific Countries and Aiports folders for some countries and some airports. Is it possible to do that in a way that Pilot2ATC understand and use ? For example : - ATC_Chatter |__ Regions |__ United States |__ Europe |__ Controllers |__ (...) |__ France |__ Controllers |__ (...) |__ LFPG |__ (...) |__ Africa |__ Asia Is it possible ? or with some other structure ? which Sound Source option should I use in Pilot2ATC ? (Country Folder -> no Regions ?? Aiport Folders ? Controller Folders ?) Thanks for your help Chris
  4. Hello, I am using ProATC-X on all my flights since years. I am using P3Dv4.1 and never had a single P3D CTD. However, I sometimes have a ProATC-X CTD but the function "resume from last crash" works like a dream and allows me to continue the flight without problem with ATC. Regards Chris (just realized that I need to update my sig)
  5. Also, changing registry entries will not be enough... You also need to modify every line in every parameter files used by FSX or add-ons where the drive letter is written. Exemple : inside fsx.cfg (for modules path), inside planes config files, etc... Could be a very time-consuming, trial and error work in order to not forget anything...
  6. Short update to my previous message about successful migration to Win10 ; Did a long range flight this week-end : 11 hours without acceleration or pause, from Rio de Janeiro to Paris Charles de Gaulle, in Pmdg 777/200, with following configuration : - FSX , DX10 Scenery Fixer + NVidia Inspector + EZDok - Orbix FTX Global + FTX Vectors + FTX Global OpenLC Europe + REX4 Texture Direct - Active Sky Next - Pro ATC-X - Professional Flight Planner X - Paris Photo HD scenery, Paris LFPG Mega Airport scenery Absolutely no problem.
  7. If you fly offline (ie not with VATSIM or IVAO) and don't mind having an outdated navigation data, you can just buy a one time update. You will have up to date/accurate nav data for this month, and the data will just slowly become a bit inaccurate every month, but at least all you add-ons (FMC from PMDG, flight planners, ATC, ...) will use the same data, based upon your month of subscription/update. You only need a yearly subscription if : 1) you want to fly online because online ATC will use freshly updated nav data or 2) you want to fly the most recently updated sid/stars/routes. I just bought a 1-time (1 month) suscription in August, allowing me to update my nav data for : Pmdg 737 and 777, Aerosoft Airbus, PRO ATC-X, and PFPX. All those add-ons now share the same nav-data. Chris
  8. Hello all, A recap of my own experience about Windows 10 migration. Installed Win 10 Pro from Win 8.1 Pro on July, 29. Install went with no problem and system is working fine. My hardware config : - CPU : Intel I7 4790K - GPU : Asus STRIX GTX980 - RAM : 16 Gb - Disk Drives : - Win 10 on 1st SSD - FSX on 2nd SSD - Add-ons that does not need to be inside FSX folder are on a Hard Disk Drive (3 Tb 7200) - Screen : 27" / 2560*1440 - HOTAS Warthog + Saitek Pro Flight Rudder pedals I did have a few problems with my FSX install : all was working fine at start but I had multiples crashes to desktop after 10-30 minutes flying, that never occured before. As the settings were untouched (exemple : HIGHMEMFIX=1 in fsx.cfg, an UIAutomation Core.dll in install dir), I had no clues about what was the problem. I decided to completely uninstall and reinstall FSX and all add-ons from scratch on my new Win 10 system. Took me a while. The main add-ons that I am using are : - FSX Gold - DX10 Scenery Fixer + NVidia Inspector - Orbix FTX Global + FTX Vectors + FTX Global OpenLC Europe - REX4 Texture Direct - Active Sky Next - Pro ATC-X - Professional Flight Planner X - FSCaptain - EZDok - Aerosoft Airbus - PMDG 737, 777/200 & /300 - several payware and freeware large airports As said, the full reinstall was a lenghty process... Most/all of the tricks of a good install on others systems were used (HIGHMEMFIX, UIAutomationCore, DX10 SceneryFixer for DX10 Preview, changing several parameters inside fsx.cfg, installing with admin rights and setting FSX.exe with Admin Privileges, ...) but the result was worth it. I now have a fully functionnal FSX with all add-ons reinstalled and working nicely. I blocked framerate at 30 with high-end AA settings in FSX/DX10Fixer/NVI, and result is very smooth (probably not different from what I had previously on Win 8.1). Only problem remaining so far : Mouse Wheel zoom is not working correctly or not working at all, depending on which setting I use inside FSX, EZDok, FSUIPC. Still need to work on that, I am not totally sure it is Win 10-related, maybe I fumbled with the settings... In summary, I am quite happy with FSX on Win 10 so far, no compatibility problem for me. Chris
  9. Bought, downloaded and installed this morning just before leaving home to work... As a long time DX10-only user, I already use Steve's free patch and know which add-ons I own that have problems. Just made a very quick test before shutting down home PC. - MegaAirport Munich EDDM is working (no more grey buildings at dusk/night/dawn, and no more grey airport vehicles). - FTXGlobal vector lights are working (I renamed back the disabled texture file) - Skiathos X (Aerosoft 29Palms) is working (no more black boxes for night lights, same as FTXG problem I guess). So far it's a big thumb up, I still need to test a lot of other add-ons... A bit disappointed if FT/Dubai is not totally working, hope for a fix from FlyTampa side... Chris
  10. Hi, seems that Lufthansa is still quite Airbus-oriented if you look at the current fleet : http://www.airfleets.fr/flottecie/Lufthansa.htm (column "active") Besides 32 B737 and 31 B747 (+18 MD 11), the remaining of the 313 airplanes fleet is only Airbus (including 10 A380). The B777-9 delivery will increases a bit Boeing share but if you add the 25 A350-9, balance is still heavily on Airbus side... Chris
  11. Can't wait also Flying with DX10 exclusively since many months, but the Fixer should solve my last gripes with this mode : many airport add-ons "grey buildings or vehicles" and light fixing, FTX Global black boxes lights, ... I will at least be able to use night flying without most (or any) problems still arising today...
  12. Thanks guys for your comments ! Well... In fact I had a crash just a few seconds before landing... I just did a short flight Seattle to CYVR to take the last pictures of the flight. When the crash occured I did not research the cause and I am not sure it was an OOM. I almost never have crashes with FSX since months, and never had since this flight (but I did not do long flights (no more than 2 hours) since this LFPG-CYVR flight). Since then I have read many posts about possible OOM problems with 777 and I will investigate that. My next long range flight is scheduled for this week-end. For my next mid/long range flight tomorrow (probably a Vienna-Dubaï, I own both airport add-ons), I will use Process Explorer to survey the VAS value. Chris
  13. A few more pics borrowed from the hard disk, from the same flight : Overflying EGGL (Heathrow) among scattered cloud layer : Greenland snow everywhere : Northern Canada :
  14. Thanks for your link to this map :rolleyes: I was parked at gate 2 if I remember well... Chris
