  1. Hi Jim, Technically, your answer is incorrect, .. as the 4 Gb address space relates to 32 bit applications, which FSX and P3D are .. not 64 bit Operating Systems. :smile: Cheers Tom
  2. Hi Ed, Yes, .. I did. As I said, .. everything works fine in FSX, .. but, nada on P3D. BTW, .. the 2 MPI....gau files installed ok into the \Prepar3D v3\gauges folder .. i.e. MPI_CDIGauge and MPI_GNS, .. just the Hypergauge.dll didn't seem to go anywhere. The GNS 430 panel/bezel etc. loads/displays ok in the aircraft, .. just no display. Cheers Tom
  3. Hi All, Firstly, been using the Mindstar GNS 430/530 units in FSX, .. since they were released. :smile: Decided to give this Prepar3d thing a try, .. and bought and installed Version 3.1 this morning. :smile: Also, installed the A2A Commanche, .. and configured it to use the Mindstar GNS 430. Went to the Mindstar site and downloaded, and installed, .. Version 1.08,0010 .. which installed smoothly enough, .. I think. When I load the Commanche in P3D, .. I get the error .. 'Failed to load Hypergauge. Check dll.xml and modules folder.' Not sure what to look for in the dll.xml, .. and couldn't find a modules folder in P3D, .. so, created one and copied the hypergauge.dll into it. .. without success. Same problem occurs. So, .. what did I miss during installation/configuration? Is my current license valid for both FSX and P3D? I thought it was. The 'updated' GNS 430 works fine in the FSX A2A Commanche. Any advice or assistance would be more than most appreciated. Thanks and Regards Tom
  4. Hi Wes, Count me in for the Orange, White and Blue .. I used to work for SAA way back when, .. and was based at Jan Smuts .. Lots of fond memories, of early mornings on the Apron, .. soaking in the rising Sun, .. and watching the Flying Springboks departing on their early morning flights to their coastal destinations. Good Times .. Cheers Tom
  5. Hi, You need to bear in mind, that FA makes no 'written' changes to your fsx.cfg .. :mellow: Everything it does, is done in real time, .. and it may well be adjusting LOD radius 'on the fly'. However, it's obvious that it is adjusting FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION in real time, .. and whilst I haven't experimented with that variable extensively, .. I understand that setting it incorrectly can cause some blurries/loss of detail. :mellow: Cheers Tom
  6. @ 1st fltsimguy 1, They do !!! 2. The AVSIM community should be thanking the developer for responding to queries and problems etc., in these forums, rather than be non-responsive .. as this is NOT their support forum. See 1. 3. The Product info IS on their own website, as well as Simmarket, and other online retailers. I'm just saying ... Perhaps a search and/or some investigation, .. before slamming the developer. They didn't start this thread, ... they are just responding to the numerous questions and queries that we all have. BTW, .. prior to reading this thread a couple of days ago, I had never heard of, or dealt with FSPS at all, .. yet, I managed to find their website, product page & support forum, .. with very little difficulty. :o Cheers Tom
  7. Hi, Thanks. I have now registered for the forums, and I saw some answers over there .. Cheers Tom
  8. Hi, I purchased the 407 today via the special on Simmarket .. The file I was given a link to, was ... MV-407_vSP2 .. a 187.05 Mb file. Is this a/the complete install?, .. or, does it require an initial install of something? I seem to be missing documentation etc .. e.g. BHT-407-FM-1 that is referred to in the 407 User Guide. .. not sure what else I'm missing e.g. a tutorial, control setups, recommended FSX setup & config .. etc etc.. Also, .. configuring it for 'Ready to Fly', .. I am unable to get this egg-beater to go anywhere. I'm obviously missing a sequence/step or something, .. but, ... buggered if I can find it. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I also purchased the 737-200 today, but from the Milviz site itself. Haven't tried that yet. Thanks Cheers Tom
  9. Hi, I very much doubt that the camera lens would be exposed to the elements. Wouldn't it be sitting in a housing with a plexiglass window or something? The bug was probably between the lens and the window, .. thus not exposed to the airflow. :blink: Cheers Tom
  10. Hi, Beautiful Paintjob ... :smile: Is it available for download anywhere? Cheers Tom
  11. Don't appear to be on sale. :( Looks like normal price to me.
  12. Hi, I use the FedEx livery, .. and both my fans are turning just fine. :smile: Cheers Tom
  13. I agree. 1920x1200 is a natural evolution from the old 1600x1200 4:3 aspect ratio on CRT monitors. It's unfortunate that many Computer Monitor manufacturers went with the 16:9 aspect ratio. However, I have noticed that a lot of the larger monitor sizes, now support the 2560x1600 resolution, which is also a 16:10 aspect ratio. The advantage of having a 16:10 monitor, is that we can run 16:9 as well .. Another advantage, for me anyway, .. is that running older games etc., .. that only support 4:3 aspect ratios, is that I can run 1600x1200 with out any issues at all. A 1920x1080 monitor could only support 1024x768 (4:3) or 1280x1024.(5:4). 1920x1200 can support these as well. So, definitely more flexibility with a 1920x1200 .. Cheers Tom
  14. Hi Serhan, There's a couple of ways to do it. The following method is probably the easiest .. explanation wise anyway. The first thing you want to do, .. is to open the PMDG Operations Center. Open 'settings' from the Menu, .. and select/tick .. 'Associate PTPs with Operations Center' .. and SAVE. You can now Exit the Operations Center. Now, .. go find the Livery i.e. the ptp file, .. that you want to install, .. and double-click on it. You'll probably get prompted if you want to allow the Ops Center to run .. say Yes. The Operations Center will load ... and all you need to do, .. is follow the prompts. Hope that helps. You can do it totally from within the Ops Center, .. but, I'm sure you'll figure that out. Cheers Tom
  15. Oops .. Andy beat me to it. :mellow: Cheers Tom
