    KPHL and KSLC for P3Dv4..??

    Yes. I did... But i have an update... It appears that you need the correct AFCAD installed depending on which direction the wind is coming from. I installed the WESTBOUND AFCAD and the LOC lock and ILS approach worked fine with the same A/C. I am assuming that this AFCAD switch also affect the usable ILS and the correct G/S and LOC bearing...

    KPHL and KSLC for P3Dv4..??

    I know this is somewhat of an old post but it has to do with the KPHL scenery. I have this scenery installed in Prepar3d 4.5 and it seems to work well except for the ILS (esp 27R)..Have not tried other ILS approaches... I was flying a route yesterday from LIRF to KPHL and all was good until i tried intercepting the ILS 27R localizer. I had the LOC engaged on my A330-300 when it all of a sudden it decided bank hard to the left from the app path. I had to quickly dis-engage the NAV and use HDG to get me back on the course (268 deg). I know there are 2 AFCADs that you can preload depending on the wind direction which affects the AI traffic at the airport. My question is does this ALSO affect the active ILSs at the airport also?

    Case Closed..... I re-installed FSX and all add-ons from scratch... 777 is working fine with no issues.....

    I was gett VAS/OOM errors last year. I enable the readout of VAS usage in FSUIPC... After updating to DX10 Fixer, i did not have any more erros with VAS/OOM issues. I would get them every flight on all aircraft. Yes, i use the Ops Center to update.. Nothing is showing need of update...

    Ops Center? Not sure what this is. Pardon my ignorance.... VAS is very good...Using DX10 Fixer...

    Well I just tried a flight from LAX to EGLL in a 777. I re-arranged the DLL file to start FSUIPC first then place the ASN as_bstrp file at the end... I was able to fly for about 5 hours with no issue until suddenly the 777 pitched up and lost speed. AP wouldn't work nor the manual flight controls. It's like i lost all control of the aircraft... One thing that was very strange is that this happen at about the same longitudinal point as the KBOS-EGLL flight i did the other day,. This just took longer. Flying over the US seems ok until i reach ther Canadian regions.... This makes this plane useless to fly now along with the 747 Jim

    While testing this several days ago, i removed FSUIPC from the DLL file and the 777 had no issues while at cruise. I then reloaded the FSUIPC module in and restarted the sim... Problem returned...I am using the "FREE" version of FSUIPC.... Jim

    Thanks BlueStar! I use REx Sky Force , ASN together for quite some time with no issues. Now i did update the latest tech release of REX SF3D about a week ago.... What is the latest FSUIPC version for FSX? I will need to see if i have it installed. Jim

    UPDATE: I need to FSUIPC for the VA i fly for. They require it for their ACARS unit..... JIm

    Seeing that both sides are pointing fingers at each other essentially, yes, it is frustrating that no one has really asked for any kind of log, setup information, etc. To make a blanket statement that the "other" product is at fault causes suspicions to say the least and a little anger... Back to the topic at hand.... What has me confused is that both my PMDG 777 and 747 aircraft along with FSUIPC and a hosts of other add-ons have been working for years... Now for some reason, something has/got changed causing issues.... Granted I had FSUIPC installed for many years for one reason or another...It was an assumption that "something/someone" needed it installed for their product to work correctly. IF FSUIPC is not needed for anything, I will remove it and move on.... I do thank you for the extended explanation of FSUIPC...... Jim

    Unfortunately there is another variable....PDMG and non-PDMG aircraft... I understood that FSUIPC IS needed for ASN to function properly... Sounds like no one is willing to offer solutions to a problem , no matter who's product is at risk... Jim

    Well I thought it was FSUIPC.. I have been chatting with Pete Dowson about it.... He has reached the conclusion that it's not FSUIPC. I do not do any key/button mapping with it. It is only installed for ASN to function. I have tried this with the Aerosoft A321 series and it works fine with FSUIPC installed. What is strange is that i have had this setup for many months with no issues with the 777 or the 747-400..I have re-calibrated the Saitek X52 yoke and throttle. When I chat with Pete again, i want to ask him if I need to do anything to configure FSUIPC for use with ASN only... Jim
  15. Hello, I have been diagnosing for the past 3 days an issue with what I thought was an FSUIPC issue..I deleted/removed all my third party add-ons to try and narrow down the problem. It follows. I filed a flight plane in the 777 and also the 747-400 (legacy) from KBOS-EGLL via CELTK->FRILL->KANNI->RAFIN-> etc. After climbing to a crz level of 350, all seems steady and well until I get about 11 miles west of KANNI. At that time, the plane either starts climbing or descending slightly. I then try to disconnect the AP and re-engage. The place will not respond. Also, if I try to use manual controls, only the ailerons respond but the plane will not roll. Neither do the rudder no elevators respond to manual yoke movement. When I removed the FSUIPC from the dll.xml file, then the plane works fine and maintains AP control. I put the FSUIPC back in and restarted the computer, FSX, and flight. Problem re-appears. I have tried this same flight and route with FSUIPC installed with non-PDMG aircraft and they work fine. Jim
