    All ILS/LOC are Misaligned

    Hi all, A few months ago I got into Prepar3D and this issue has been more and more predominant lately. When flying the Majestic Q400, the Airbus Extended 320/321, or really any other aircraft, there are lots of problems when landing an ILS. For example, yesterday on final with the Q400, established on the ILS 06L at CYYZ (Toronto Pearson), I actually ended up landing on the green grade between 06L and taxiway C. This is a big difference since I didn't actually land on the runway and can cause damage to the plane. Another example, the Q400 on the ILS 08 at CYTZ (City Centre at TORONTO), the glide slope and LOC are messed up. I landed to the right of that runway and almost in the water, before the runway, thus proving the g/s wasn't working properly. I've tested to make sure it's not the winds by setting the winds to calm or 000/00. The Airbus 320/321 does a better job of landing properly, but still is sometimes off course. Both the A320/321 and the Q400 have the latest Navigraph cycle installed, or second latest. 1405 or 1406. Please let me know how I can fix this, if there's an easy fix or if it's something I need to change for each airport's runways. And while I haven't tested every airport, it happens at almost every airport that I fly to, especially in the Q400. Thanks! Mike

    PMDG 777+Windows 8.1 problem

    Same issue, all black gauges and cannot press any buttons in cockpit, move throttle, etc. No activation window. On Windows 8.1 x64. P3D is outside of Program Files directory. Opened a ticked with PMDG, will see what they say.

    Ipad 777 EFB software

    How is this hijacking? The post is about an EFB for iPad for the 777. I am simply showing you what is available on the market, showing what is available for consumers. Just suggestions to other virtual pilots.

    777 EFB

    Hello! We at FlightSim Solutions have just published our first application, 777 EFB, the world's most advanced EFB on iPad for flight sim enthusiasts. You can check out our website at http://flightsimsolutions.ca for more information since I cannot post advertising here on the forums. It includes a world traffic map with ATC (from VATSIM) using Navigraph data for routes drawn on the map, interactive non-normal procedures/checklists, and much more! The app is truly revolutionary and is something that each 777 virtual pilot should have with them while flying! Best regards, Michael Shamash FlightSim Solutions GP

    Yoke Suddenly Banks Left Completely

    Hi all, After flying around with the 777-300, 777-200, and SP1 for a few days now, I am noticing that while I am still manually controlling the plane, if my physical controls are all in the neutral position (Saitek Pro Flight Yoke + Pro flight rudder pedals), the yoke in FSX will suddenly turn left completely. This causes the left aileron to come up and right aileron to go down, turning my plane to the left until i move my physical controls to set them aligned again. I don't use FSUIPC for controls, I just have it installed so that other software can connect into FSX. The only addons I have are Active Sky Next, and I occasionally run UT2, though I just installed that and I had this issue without UT2 installed as well. Please let me know how I can fix this issue or if you're experiencing the same thing. Thanks! Michael Shamash

    Yoke Suddenly Banks Left Completely

    Thanks, Hook, this fixed the issue. It looks like my left/right toe on rudder pedals were assigned to the ailerons some how and changing that fixed the issue! Michael Shamash

    Yoke Suddenly Banks Left Completely

    I am seeing that this issue only occurs when i have my yoke/thr. quad. plugged in, even though I'm not touching it, it'll bank left on the controls... Ghost signals from controller? Michael Shamash

    Runtime error R6025 faulting msvcr100.dll

    After observing the effects of the errors in greater detail, I see that while this error pops up, I can click the main P3D sim windows to 'hide' it behind P3D and continue flying...but the sim stops loading textures. The only textures it loads are runways, taxiways, and a few buildings but no scenery, no grass, nothing. This has lead me to believe that the bug is related to the graphics card compatibility or to something GFX-card related. I use default scenery, no add-ons, etc.
  11. michael179

    Prepar3D v2.2 I give up. Refund requested.

    What hardware are you running it on? I am also getting this error and considering a refund but if we both have the same CPU, or GFX card, maybe there's hope there? Mike EDIT: I see we both have NVidia graphics cards, I have the EVGA GTX 760 and you have the GTX 650. Maybe it is an nvidia compatibility issue with P3D?

    Runtime error R6025 faulting msvcr100.dll

    Mind me asking what your setup is? I have an NVIDIA EVGA GTX 760 4gb; Intel i5 CPU (4th gen) and 8GB DDR3 system RAM. Motherboard: Z87N by Gigabyte. Anything in common? Maybe it's a hardware issue LM needs to fix.

    Runtime error R6025 faulting msvcr100.dll

    Adam- that's great! I'll try out that other weather system tomorrow. As for tessellation whether the box is checked or unchecked, it still crashes

    Runtime error R6025 faulting msvcr100.dll

    Hey Adam, I can confirm that there *is* an uninstall option for the XGUAGE in the latest beta version of ASN for P3D from their site. You go to Tools -> XGUAGE Installation Wizard, and follow the instructions with all aircraft selected, then click the UNINSTALL/REMOVE option not the install/repair option. I am still going to test to see if this is the problem, but hopefully this was it and no more errors! Mike EDIT: This is not the problem it looks like, since I just got a crash with that same error on takeoff roll.

    Runtime error R6025 faulting msvcr100.dll

    Hi Adam, Thanks for the suggestions. How can I uninstall X GUAGE from ASN/P3d? Do I need to reinstall ASN completely? Mike

    Runtime error R6025 faulting msvcr100.dll

    UPDATE: Disabling the RAAS pro that comes with the AXE seemed to have fixed the problem when any aircraft crashes into an object and I now get the error message only during flight at random times. Thankfully now I can hide it and continue flying! Hopefully this bug is fixed very soon!

    Runtime error R6025 faulting msvcr100.dll

    I also posted another thread re this problem. I get it when the airplane crashes into an object, or just like 10min into the climb to cruise. Very annoying! I have the MJC DH8D installed and I use Active Sky Next for weather. I also have UT2 installed, but disabled until I fly online.

    Whenever Aircraft Crashes, P3D Crashes!

    So the past few days I've seen it's not only when the A/C crashes, but mid-flight as well! This is very frustrating- how can I fly if I get this error while climbing to cruise?! Anyone have any ideas as to what's up with this error? My realism settings are set on high for my graphics card and this happens with lower settings as well. Thanks, Mike
  19. Hi all, I've been getting this error for the past few weeks (not due to any new addons) whenever the aircraft crashes into an object. In this situation, I believe it would normally open a menu asking what I want to do next, new flight, etc... but when clicking OK on this error, P3D crashes completely and quits. Here is the screenshot of the error in P3d: http://imgur.com/hXG57NF Event viewer information: Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version: 2.2.10438.0, time stamp: 0x53468776 Faulting module name: MSVCR100.dll, version: 10.0.40219.325, time stamp: 0x4df2be1e Exception code: 0x40000015 Fault offset: 0x0008d6fd Faulting process id: 0x1644 Faulting application start time: 0x01cf9232a09a26fa Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\Prepar3D.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\MSVCR100.dll Report Id: 2cb23f10-fe29-11e3-b0dd-0c8bfd5f56c1 Any idea how to fix this?

    All ILS/LOC are Misaligned

    I actually just found out yesterday that it was a 'private' ILS from a friend. I am still out of the house due to renovations, I plan to test the A320 with auto land on the ILS 06L at CYYZ and see if it is on the rwy. or on the green grass. I did however, install the nav. updated from that link in an earlier post although it didn't recognize my P3D v2, it said it was v1, and it worked only while the Migration Tool was on virtual FSX mode. (probably since I have FSX + P3D installed). It was this one to install, right? http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids.html Mike

    Thanks! But I heard that this is 'top secret' and is given out only to Porter pilots and military...as long as you're allowed to share :)

    All ILS/LOC are Misaligned

    Kinda off topic...but still with the idea of LOC and ILS: while landing, if I want to take over the vertical portion of flight but have the A/P still control my lateral navigation on the LOC, is it possible? I know I could select NAV which would only fly the LOC part of the ILS but then I have to either use V/S mode or it will maintain pitch, I cannot override. I guess I'm asking for the two main aircraft I fly, the Majestic Q400 and the Airbus Extended A320/321. As for the CYTZ ILS 26...I will be checking it out within the coming days to see how it works, but the default scenery doesn't seem to have it. I'll also try to update the P3D nav data. Thanks Mike

    Ezdok working - install mini tut

    Hey Thanks for making this tutorial! I am wondering if I need a valid license to try out EZdok 1.17 since it is still in beta. I have not yet purchased EZdok and would like to see it working in my sim first, with a file from frooglesim to see how it is. Thanks Mike

    All ILS/LOC are Misaligned

    I will, although I'm away from my Flight Sim PC for about a week currently, but when I get back the first thing I will do is install this, and it's free! This is the closest I could find to what I found in the CYTZ airport file in P3D, even though this doesn't show it's a localizer. http://imgur.com/2sJl7dr These are the other charts Navigraph has for CYTZ, but only 1 LOC (really 2 since with the same freq. as 08 is the b/c for 28 as a LOC without G/S). http://imgur.com/AA2QmRX Something I noticed in the Airport Editor tool was that the LOC for circling was the same freq. as 08 LOC, thus prompting me to think it was for 26 and they messed up somewhere? I didn't even know this approach existed, amazing! I think they could have removed it since this incident, maybe too risky or expensive.

    Good to know someone is using the charts I put up for the Virtual FIR! :) I'll definitely check that out, looks very interesting.
