  1. Anyone who creates a working program featuring military traffic like MAIW, and civilian traffic like WOAI and general aviation that works with P3Dv4 would make a killing right now.
  2. Doesn't work as per creating an "empty file". WOAI installer does not recognize the text document fsx.exe as it is not a true exe file. At least for me.
  3. Same here. I can't set any views on any aircraft since I bought XP.
  4. Hmm. No, I don't see anything like that in either folder. In the folder "yOrtho4XP_Overlays" there is only a folder "earthnavdata" inside of which are two folders, +30-110 and +30-120. Inside the other folder, Arizona_2015_1m are three folders, earthnavdata, terrain and textures. None of these contain anything entitled "Build Overlays". Maybe I didn't download the right items or perhaps deleted them after the conversion process. Thanks Again, Andrew
  5. Not sure I understand what you mean by "generating the overlays".
  6. Well, I only have these two entries: SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/yOrtho4XP_Overlays/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/zOrtho4XP_Arizona And they sit in that order, above.
  7. So it is possible to have 2 installations on the same machine without messing anything up?
  8. Thanks for the replies. My problem, which I fixed, was quite simple, actually. I was of the understanding when you put scenery into the scenery folder, the ini file automatically writes the new scenery info lines at the bottom. I checked it, and saw that the two lines were not there, so I simply added them and it worked. I feel stupid :p. I am pretty sure all of my other sceneries I added automatically wrote to the ini file. I now noticed that I have no night lights, or vehicles. Does Ortho not feature this? I am very new to X-Plane, but have been using Microsoft flight sims for over 20 years. Thanks again, AG
  9. I just spent the last 36 hours trying to install and convert textures for Arizona Ortho scenery. Now XP11.2 won't start at all. I tried removing the two folders; yOrtho4XP_Overlays, and Arizona_2015_1m. And nothing changed. I get a CTD. I followed the directions exactly as stated in the instructions on the forum. So, screw it. Installing this complicated thing is over my head. Should have left well-enough alone. So how do I reverse all of what I just did so i can return to my default scenery so I have a flight sim again? I assume I am just going to have re-install X-Plane. I am not looking for another download three more programs or do 42 more steps to get this to work or anything like that. I just want to reverse the damage it seems to have caused me. Thanks, Andrew
  10. Way way too complicated for the average Joe. Screw it. I guess I'll stick with the default scenery.
  11. 12 years later. Just had the same problem. Lvl-D is buggy. Think I'll quit using it.
  12. I found the best way is to start in this order (personally): Steam Active Sky Next FSX Then AI Sep I load the flight and as it's loading I connect the AI Sep and then retrieve data. It usually starts 90% of the time. Thanks, Skywatcher.
  13. Could someone please make a livery for the Rikooo B717 in Delta livery? This has been needed for a long time. I cannot find one anywhere on the internet. Thanks, Andrew
  14. I don't like using AI Separation. It errors out all the dang time.
  15. Maybe I'll start my own, then. Wish I knew how.
  16. No idea, as I see my post was deleted, and i don't remember it's content. I may have accidentally posted on the wrong page. Apologies.
  17. I just wanted to say that I was having a terrible time with CTDs, usually when I switched from full screen mode to windowed mode. I tried everything, searched everywhere, and could find nothing. What finally fixed it was when I deleted REX Direct. Ever since, I have had zero CTDs and my sim has never ran smoother. Disappointing, because I really liked REX, but I find the default clouds with ASN to be fine for my needs. Hope this helps someone. Andrew Grey
  18. I like using this file for contrails. Maybe this will work if you don't already have it? Avsim library: longer_contrails_fsx_fs9.zip Here is another one: aicontrails.zip Andrew Grey
  19. Hello, Does anyone know of a VA which flies to many Pacific islands, or preferably, exclusively to Pacific islands/Australia/Oceania? I was wanting to explore the area via a decent VA. Thanks, Andrew
  20. Whenever I start up my PMDG B737-800 NGX from a cold and dark state, I get to the INS set to align, I click it over and get alarms. The light flashes back and forth between ALIGN lights. The left IRS says "on DC" and the right IN DC light is out. The alarm persists. I try to hit the FMS button on the FMS and it doesn't work. What gives here?
  21. Guess I will have to. So sick of having to register for forums. But thanks, I'll head over there.
  22. Thanks for your help everyone. I uninstalled and tried to re-install FSX, but I live in a rural area and have super slow internet. It is saying it will be ready to launch in 4 days and 20 hours. So I'll be back next week to follow up with this, if necessary. heh
  23. BBEncode? I don't have a clue what you are talking about. I'm just a draftee. heh I went to the suggested site and made an account. Can't I just post a link to the pic as I did above? Or is this not allowed? I didn't see any tutorial anywhere. Edit - ok I found the 'tutorial' post.
