    Cannot install livery via .ptp file with latest version of 737

    Yes. I thought all I had to do was update the PMDG OPS Center and then run the new installer.
  2. Hello, After installing the latest version of the 737-800/900 NGX into P3D v4, I cannot install a livery via a .ptp file I had the 737 NGX and it's expansion pack installed to P3D v3. I ran the OPS Center updater. Then I downloaded the latest 737-800/900 NGX installer. I ran it and chose to install it into P3D v4. I then tried to install a livery using the OPS Center, but got an error message that "the livery is for the PMDG 737-800 NGX but that variant is not installed!" Then I re-ran the latest installer and selected to install into P3D v3. I thought perhaps that would fix the issue, but it did not. Using the previous version of the 737 NGX, this .ptp file and various other .ptp file liveries installed just fine. I am running the OPS Center 'as Administrator'. Any ideas as to what might be wrong? Thank you, Jimmy Richards

    Real Air Duke v2.0 Released

    I bought her last night and did a little flight. I clicked the 'Prop Sync' switch and lost all clickspots. I flew another plane for just a bit today and everything worked okay with it. Later I started up FSX and loaded up the Duke, no clickspots! I bought her last night and did a little flight. I clicked the 'Prop Sync' switch and lost all clickspots.

  4. I went through this same frustration before deciding to stick with DX9. I would always get this same thing after about 10 minutes or so. My system just doesn't seem to like the DX10 thang. Btw, my video card is an HIS(ATI/AMD) IceQ HD 7850 2 GB. Perhaps if you get help and get it figured out here yotgosGK I might try DX10 again. It seemed like a lost cause, for me.

    latest ati driver doesn't work with fsx

    No problem. You're welcome.
  6. Years ago ATI developed the Catalyst Install Manager with cleanly removing old drivers in mind as one of it's functions. Driver Sweeper may have been a good idea prior to that but I wouldn't recommend using it now, especially after hearing about your woes abax200. It's possible using Driver Sweeper caused/contributed to things going bonkers on you. I don't know though. I did use Driver Sweeper in the time prior to Catalyst Install Manager coming out. But now I always use the Catalyst Install Manager to install/uninstall the AMD/ATI Catalyst drivers and haven't had any hassles. Hope that helps fwiw, Jim Richards

    latest ati driver doesn't work with fsx

    Okay, another update. I uninstalled the 13.9's fine using the Catalyst Install Manager. Installed the 13.4's with no problems to report. The sim is back to behaving great now. I hadn't flown in several days and upon switching between the two drivers, I believe that the color saturation was a little washed out looking under the 13.9's. With the 13.4's the coloration is good and crisp, no crashes going to the map view, nor when exiting a flight or exiting the sim from a flight. Everything seem pretty solid again. Hope that helps fwiw, Jim Richards

    Thanks for the link to that other thread abax2000. I rebooted the computer for the second time since installing the 13.9's, just in case. Well, there is something that has been happening that I didn't mention before but should have. Whenever I press 'Esc'(the Escape key) and either select to exit the flight or the sim, it crashes. The 13.9's do seem to be wonky. I decided I'm going to go back to the Catalyst 13.4's which worked great.

    latest ati driver doesn't work with fsx

    Okay, I made a change in the Catalyst Control Panel before starting the sim again. I had previously been using 4x Adaptive Anti-Aliasing and I changed it to Multisampling just to see what that was like. I loaded up the plane and after a minute I went to the map. No crash. I then exited the sim to come here and report. I'll go back to Adaptive Anti-Aliasing to see if that causes a crash. I must say I'm a little leery of the new drivers since you have reported having an issue, and I had a crash when trying to go to the map the first time after installing them. But I'll stick with the new drivers for little while to see how it goes. Regards Errr sorry, when I said Adaptive Anti-Aliasing I meant Adaptive Multisampling. I'll try Supersampling too.

    latest ati driver doesn't work with fsx

    Well, flying seems to work okay. Everything seems to look just fine. I just tried to go to the map and the sim crashed. Don't know if it has anything to do with the driver change or not. But anyway, I'm going to start the sim again and go to the map right away and see what happens. If it crashes again when trying to go to the map I'm going to revert to the 13.4's and see if the sim still crashes. Cheers

    latest ati driver doesn't work with fsx

    I just installed the 13.9 drivers. I also had the 13.4 driver installed prior to installing the Catalyst 13.9 driver. Right after installing the newer driver I came on to the forums here and saw this thread. After reading your post sleightflight I was cringing with an "Oh no, I just installed them!" Of course, I decided to fire up FSX to see what would happen. Nothing wrong, no issue here that I can see so far. I loaded up the MilViz 737-200 and it seemed just fine. It was all I did before coming back to reply here. I haven't flown yet. Anyway, whew! Sigh of relief on my end. I'd rather not have to go back to the older drivers if I don't need to. My card is an HIS(ATI) IceQ Radeon HD 7850 You did uninstall the old driver before installing the newer one, correct? Good luck, Jim Richards

    Best GA Float plane - Recommendations?

    I wish someone would make a Lake Renegade for FSX. I liked one the freeware one by John L. Woodward for FS2004. Just a wish!

    Your opinion - Best Business Jet available?

    I'd recommend checking out... 1) Eaglesoft Cessna Citation X v2 (already mentioned) 2) FeelThere E-Jets Volume 2 Embraer 175-195 3) Xtreme Prototypes 20 Series - Model 24 and 25 LearJets (VC only, no 2D panel)

    Green Airport Information Bar: How to get rid of?

    Nice. I have the same combination. Or at least I think I do. My Landclass is by Scenery "Tech". I'm guessing that's what you meant. Cheers
  15. By CS MD-80 I take it you mean CoolSky. But when you follow that with 727, 757 & 767 I'm thinking you mean Captain Sim. Or did CoolSky make those models for FSX as well?
