  1. Well 'm having no luck at all here I loading the default Raptor/Elgin and then switching to the TD and now the left engine blows complete with oil and smoke stain on start up even though I've got failures turned off in the TD config panel. I give up edit....So after a restart of P3d and the loading the default raptor/Elgin and then switching to the TD I am now flying again.a bit too much faffing around if I'm honest but what the hell it's working again yay! thanks for all the tips and advice one and all.
  2. Apparently this is a known bug in P3dv4.2 and switching on "Detailed precipitation" in the P3D settings should fix it for now.
  3. I'm getting the same problem with the right engine constantly failing without warning. I thought it was me but clearly there is something else going on. I've tried it with an ROC of no more than 700fpm and throttle and rpm well below redlines. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the updated installer and I have failure switched off yet still it happens. Not looked into any possible joystick issues and I'm working now until Monday but any advice from the assembled masses on here would be welcome. "As a test of your problem, try starting P3d with the default sim scenario and then change the aircraft to the TD." Thanks Jay, I'll try that just as soon as work gets out of the way

    Thanks Ian, I'll try that it's a lot less effort!
  6. I've just downloaded the installers to check and yes they do give you the option to install into P3Dv4.
  7. They have replied over on the FSDream Forum Bryan. If it's any help I'm running them in v4 without any problems.

    OK thanks Ray, I am running P3Dv4 and I've been using the option on the 3rd tab also. I'll take a look on Lorby's forum

    So if I understand you correctly Ray there is no need to run the utility first? running MakeRunways on it's own will suffice providing Lorby's utility is installed?
  10. Thanks for that. My bad I completely missed the thread where others had reported this. I shall go and sit in the naughty corner
  11. I'm getting this error when I try to download the base package for the FSX 737. all the others have downloaded fine. Any ideas? <Error> <Code>NoSuchKey</Code> <Message>The specified key does not exist.</Message> <Key>PMDG_737_8900_NGX.ZIP</Key> <RequestId>E6206DAC8B9EE537</RequestId> <HostId> dwAqaAJad6SI1qU1qjss7G81mweaHc+HYGu1B5Hy5upLrMCmP0ONHedXhdoHakaClqGx8B4Z/pE= </HostId> </Error>

    RealAir Turbine Duke V2 in Prepar3d V4

    I created a blank file in notepad and renamed it "FSX.exe" I placed that in the P3Dv4 folder and then installed the FSX turbine duke, when it asks for the installation folder point it to the P3Dv4 folder and let it do it's stuff. The Real AIr config panel works as well and if you get the fix for the audio the clicks and whirrs of the flaps and switches etc work as well.
