  1. Hello Friends. I have a question which is driving me bananas! I'm using P3dV4.2-64. I'm having a really-really hard time adjusting the engine rpms and manifold pressure with the governor engaged in the R22. It all goes very smoothly without (the governor) except that the rpm will eventually red-line, but as soon as I engage the governor, the engine rpm does stay in the green-zone, but surges up and down, and the manifold pressure goes crazy swinging up and down very visibly. I know this is an old issue, and I have tried many -many suggestions to edit the Governor lines within the air file - which seems to help a little. But has anyone found a working solution for this issue yet, I would really appreciate any help. Does Heliforce from our friend Simon from Dodosim address this issue? Thank you guys, much appreciated. marco
  2. Hello friends! I need help with an oddity in P3D V4.2 Please. I have a 4 monitors setup. Windows 7-64-pro, FSUIPC 4.1. The issues I'm having that despite having the "Pause on task switch" option unchecked in P3d, the sim still pauses every-time I click on anything external - even the desktop, with both the sim windowed or full screen. then continues once I click back anywhere on the sim. I even went into the P3d.Cfg and nixed the "pause on lost focus" line, still no joy. Any ideas guys? I would really appreciate any suggestions. Thank you so much. Marco.
  3. SUCCESS! With the help of our Friend David Porrett The issues if fully resolved! Thank you everyone for your help. Mark
  4. SUCCESS (ALMOST 90%) Hello again friends and thank you for all the help you guys have given me. I haven't heard from JeanLuc in over a week, he must be busy with shows etc. in any case, I have great news to report but still having some last minute issues. So to bring you guys up to speed, I abandoned the idea of FS9 and switched to P3D-v4.2-64 works great and I was finally able to get the XPReality 530v2 GPS appear in the simulator. After many trial and errors that part is finally resolved. The issue which is keeping me back from declaring full victory is as follows: I need the XP530 to work with a emuteq 530 hardware GPS. Undocking the gps there in NOT an issue, I can do so no problem. The issue is in configuring the hardware keys to the software Xp530. Specifically: The emuteq instructions calls for a 3 step setup. I must modify: 1)Fsuipc.ini, 2)rxpgns.ini, 3)panel.cfg. The first (fsuipc) mod was a no brainer, I simply copied and pasted the lines supplied (by emuteq) into it. The problem was in finding the RXPgns.ini file, as the emuteq probably still has the the old location JeanLuc used before. I know this because searching older forums, JeanLuc indicated that that file was previously where emuteq said it was. The I finally I found a realityxp.gns.ini in each plane's panel folder. (some success) and was even able to experiment with it by making the gps frame appear or not. But, upon reading the XP manual for the 4th time I realized that the "Keyboard shortcuts" section Emuteq wants me to locate is located within another RealityXP.GNS.ini file located in C:MyDocuments/RealityXP/GNSSimilation/FltSim. The problem is that this ini file does not have a [Keyboard] section as emuteq suggests, and furthermore when I open this file in notepad at the very top it says the following: [SHORTCUTS] Keyboard shortcut section. Shortcuts must be configured in this INI filelocated at: "MyDocuments\flight Simulator Files" . And this is I'm starting to pull my hair out, because when I do go there, there is no RXP....ini or entry of any sort, just a bunch of IFR and VFR flight plans. So....... does this mean that I must add the keyboard section manually into the RealityXP.GNS.ini and then move/copy that file into the "MyDocuments\flight Simulator FIles" folder manually? In essence, Where do I paste the emuteq [KEYBOARD] Section into? Im really stuck. Sorry for the confusion. Any help is much appreciated.
  5. Sorry Bill. That was not was I wanted to do at all, no need to shout. Just some urgency. Sorry again. Thank you for reminding me. Mark
  7. Thank you so much Bill. I will do as you say and search the forums. I hope JeanLuc gets back soon and everything is ok with him. A kind thank you. Mark
  8. Hey Guys, anybody know what happened to JeanLuc please. I sent him 2 PMs but he hasn't replied, and time is of the essence. JeanLuc, can you please tell me if you got my PMs? Thank you so much. Mark
  9. Thank you so much JeanLuc for your prompt reply. I just PMd you. Mark.

  11. Hello fellow Simmers!! Im having a real hard time getting the Reality XP gps to appear in my 2d cockpit. May I say what I have done so far please: I am using the emuteq 530 hardware GPS and it is already installed and recognized by windows. I can easily undock the 2d panel or anything else (other than the one I need) into it - in windowed mode of course. The hardware is also recognized and working in the windows game controller module. Note: the RXP software was just purchased a few days ago and also FSUIPC register and installed. 1) Win-7-64 Full Admin rights, all AV WinDef. UAC are disabled disabled 2) Install XPReality as Admin. Install goes ok and then I also installed the Trainer and no errors or issues noted. The Trainer is in the ProgramfilesX85 folder and I can open it on its own. I also see the rxp gps gauge in the fs9 gauges folder. 3) When I start the sim and the bell206 Heli (or anything else), and I right click "configure it" to activate the Gauge, I instruct it to install 2 pop-up windows both for the 530. (tried also 1 and different types) 4) the process installs successfully, and the aircraft refreshes and restarts. 5) In the top menu under "Cockpit views" I can now see the check-marks before the realityxp gauges, it shows "managed" for some reason (I do not know what that means). 6) when I check un-check these views, and/or use shift+7 (the window number allocated in panel.cfg), the screen flashes quickly - but no gauge nor window shows up. I really need to get this going asap, as I was hired by an outfit to refurbish their sim, and I have been stuck at this point for a week now. lol. I really appreciate any help please. Cordially, Mark
  12. Thank you Gary! You know I owe much of my (hobby) achievements to you. You have been a much appreciated guiding beacon to me.Thanks for that. Your buddy Marco.
  13. Hey everyone, Marco here, the dude with the basement 747 setup!! First thank you for all the nice comments and also the not so nice ones, but just to clarify things a bit. The idea of "how" I decided to build my sim was as follows. I have a very good buddy who built a super-meticulous 744 pit, and he spent years doing so, but once completed, there was nothing for him left to do - and now he is almost bored with it. There are times he says that he does not touch the sim for six months. I therefore decided to go another route. I wanted it to be a continuous work in progress, because to be totally honest, it is not so much the pilot\s life - nor the flying in itself that fascinates me, but the building process, the making it better and better as I go, that is what keeps me interested. And so, I do realize that to the purists out there many things in my sim are "not right" and that as Mr. Detroit says "my sim and flying skills are more looks than substance" but that is how I chose to grow, by making it better all the time, and by making my flying skills better all the time. Perhaps the biggest obstacle has been that having invested so much time and money in the fs9 platform, I am having a very hard time letting go of it, one because it looks gorgeous (highly modified) and I get very high frames rates, and one because neither P3D nor XPlane seem to really have what it takes to convince me to switch once and for all. Yes they look and feel a bit better, but not drastically better. I have installed XPlane 4 times and after only one hour I just uninstall it in frustration. P3D I have tried it 3 times and I soon after uninstalled it because the difference was not what I expected. The problem (if we want to call it so) is that my fs9 is far from stock, I have modified Orbx textures in it, together with REX, UT, custom water, meshes, trees, clouds and all, and of course 150+ custom airports, and therefore even P3D only gives me a 20% improvement at best, but only once I spend a few thousands of dollars on it. I am not an ostrich however, I do know that I will have to eventually change over, and I just recently installed the latest P3D and I am slowly building it up to a decent level, but I am honestly in no rush, my Fs9 looks pretty damn good as it is. And so I apologize if - with my flying skills and lack of proper procedures I have offended some of you purists out there, but to me a hobby is something you enjoy and gives you the freedom to do what you want - not to do it by the letter - otherwise I would have become a real pilot. Bottom line is - I love my sim and it gives me peace and it lowers my blood pressure lol!! hence I don't know what else I could ask for. I am glad for what I was able to achieve and afford - thank God for that! Peace and joy to all fellow simmers. Marco Governali. :smile:
