    Chaseplane no longer working?

    Hello. I also have been experiencing similar problems, I came back to Flight simming over the weekend after a couple of months layoff, loaded everything up, all controls worked fine for a couple of minutes, then nothing!, I uninstalled chaseplane tonight and reloaded, (downloaded new copy) but still no control? Using FSX-SE. Thanks for your help. Jim

    'Path does not exist'

    Thanks Robert, I'll come back later..... Hi, Unable to open and run FSTScenery.exe? Run-time error '53': File not found checking some more
  3. FSX-SE edition on Windows 7 Home Premium. My Scenery files have suddenly gone haywire overnight, I have a loss of FPS, down to 15, the screen is stuttering quite badly and the scenery is populating all the time, textures are also incoherent with lines across the landscape etc. I have checked ‘Scenery Editor’ and all Orbx and FSX default scenery files, contained a red triangle with an exclamation mark and ‘Path does not exist’, (UK 2000 software is not affected) I attempted a backup of the files in SE, but it failed. I also checked the path of the Scenery.cfg file (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\\FSX) but there was none in this format? Only ‘Scenery’ a copy of the file is attached. Scenery files in FSX settings are all ticked. A ‘Verify integrity of Game files’ check has also been carried out in STEAM, 193 files failed to validate and were reacquired, but these have no affect on the scenery. I have no idea how this issue has occurred, all scenery has been working satisfactorily for a considerable time and due to my lack of knowledge in this area, I can confirm no changes have consciously been made to the Scenery File. Attachments: 1. Landscape Scrpnt (a) 2. Landscape Scrpnt (b) 3. SCE Scrpnt. 4. Scenery path as shown in SCE (above) 5. ‘Scenery’ content. I have 5 attachments showing the problem but I'm not sure how uploading works? Can anybody put me in the wright direction please, should I post this on another forum? Thanks PC Spec. CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Loki SDS963 OS Win 7-Home Premium. Asus P8Z77-V LX2 RAM: 8GB Corsair 1600 mhz Vengeance (2x4GB) Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB
  4. I have my original MS FSX Gold Edition, where should the SDK files be installed in FSX SE? Thanks

    Tutorial 1-ALT INTV

    Just a small point really, the ALT INTV needs to be activated in climbing but is it the same for reducing climb? on page 0.00.69 of the tutorial, the MCP is lowered to 2000 feet, but there isn't a mention of the ALT INTV button? Thanks

    Errors in programming the CDU

    Thanks appreciate your comment on the Signature, had a look but it seems I can't edit until the 25th Oct)with regard to the problem, yes there appears to be an old keyboard shortcut, but I can't view it anywhere to delete it, any ideas? Jim Smith

    Errors in programming the CDU

    This is my first post with AVSIM so I apologise if my etiquette is incorrect. I have a problem when setting up configuring shortcuts in the CDU this may not be peculiar to PMDG but this is the only instance where I have experience any form of problems with Flight Sim, my software is FSX with acceleration and I have EZCA installed. I am new to using PMDG and but have been operating the CDU up to now without any problems, now the page I'm on is Page 8 of 8 in the Autoflight Key Commands and I'm trying to configure the A/P disengage switch. I enter Shift+Control+A, and almost immediately the A on the screen changes to a 3 and the view changes to one out of the cockpit from the Captain's seat, this is not a view that is programmed in EZCA?, I relocate the view to the CDU and the number 3 has taken the place of A. I retried the sequence a dozen times but the same thing happens, I am also using a Corsair Vengeance, which I thought might be at fault so I tried a standard Microsoft Wi-F model but the same thing happens. I have carried out other configuration exercises without similar problems. I would be grateful for any help you can give. Thanks
