  1. In the days that I was using the PMDG DC-6 for FSX, I made these panel screenshots. I gathered that the LVAR's could be the same in MSFS. So far they are: It took me a while and it's not complete, but for those who want to use their VRinsight or Saitek panels in combination with Spad.next, I've created screenshots of the different DC6 panels on which all useable buttons, switches etc have there variable (LVar) in yellow numbers. The syntax is "DC6_###_OBJ(LVAR) for almost all the assignments you want to make.www.dropbox.com/s/5i78wzgl6e0oyc7/LVAR_DC-6.rar?dl=0I'm busy today and tomorrow to implement them. Hopefully it will work as smooth as in FSX.Peter
  2. Thanks very much for your CTD solution which made my simulator load normally again. Pretty clever, if I may say so.

    I'd never found out that the key-assignment files were causing the problem. 

    Thanks again,

    Regards,

    Peter

  3. Had the same a few times now. By just pressing <esc>, (which brings you in an active pause) and resume the game brought back the working mouse. Good Luck. Peter

  5. On request I've updated the Doodle-link to the LVAR-list: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5i78wzgl6e0oyc7/LVAR_DC-6.rar?dl=0 Peter

  7. Not for the first time: "ConnectionClosed" I wonder how long it will take them to restore the connection this time? Puk
  8. Same problem in this case with the external sounds of the A2A L049 Puk
  9. Great news that it's running again. The work-around to set the date a day back however worked, but came a little late for me to start a five hour VA-leg, that was planned to start early this morning. Tomorrow a second chance. Hopefully with an internet connection. Puk
  10. Same problem..... keeps on the discussion whether an Internet connection is necessary...???? Puk
  11. It would make landing the DC-6 a whole lot easier if the copilot calls out the altitude from 500 ft down. Is this a possible option for a next update? Would appreciate that very much. Peter Bleekemolen
  12. I, on the other hand, have actually heard airliners squeak when they land as well as GA planes. I think the louder noise of the jet sometimes covers it up and especially if the wind is not carrying the sound directly in your direction. Further more it has to do with the fact that when you're inside an airliner, you are sitting in an pressurized enclosed environment with all the sound reduction materials within the walls which restrict most sounds from outside coming inside. Apart from that, due to the lack of a three-dimensional surrounding while flying in a flight simulator, the sound of tires on the tarmac and in some cases the shaking and rattling of the fuselage during the landing makes you realize you're actually on the ground. And that's what I like to hear.. Peter
  13. Thanks Downscc for your quick response. In this case it wasn't a over flaring; that would mean that my pulling-the-yoke action had some result and the plane's nose would lift. You're absolutely right with your remark that I'm still in a learning process. This morning tried out several landings and noticed that my pitch trim settings caused the plane not to pitch up for flaring (nose down and neutral). After using a number of different pitch trim settings she flared beautifully and landed smoothly. Solved that problem earlier, Ronald. Thanks for the tip anyway. I couldn't believe not hearing the tires screeching after my first flights. How is it possible that PMDG forgot that important element? Indeed, hopefully an upcoming patch will deal with that. In the meantime ACCUFeel solves this lack for me. Peter
  14. Trying out the DC-6 for FSX now for about two weeks and though I'm hooked to A2A products my love for prop driven planes made me purchase this beauty. It took me some time to get the engines running with or without the help of my copilot. Finally I've made several test flights without to much problems, except for the landings. With all settings ready for landing , the plane doesn't respond when I try to pitch up for the flare. My landing speed is about 110 kts, flaps, trim etc according to the checklist set, but when I gently pull my yoke towards me nothing happens (while in flight it 's response is as might expected) and the plane falls like a brick on the tarmac. What am I doing wrong?
