  1. Only found out today. Can’t believe it, inspired me through my early FSX days. R.I.P. Matt
  2. I am getting some of the issues described by various people. I have TC installed on a separate drive. Could this possibly cause issues with missing aircraft etc? Mike
  3. This is what concerns me. Rex started off behind but they do seem to be keeping on top of updates. I’m also drawn to the weekly season changes in REX rather than every 45 days. Thank all of you for your opinions. Think I might give Accuseason a try. regards Mike
  4. Hi All, I know that this subject has been covered before, but I can't find any recent comparisons between Bijan Seasons 7.2 and the latest Rex Accuseason. Most comparisons are 10 months old now and from what I can gather Rex has grown up a bit since then. I already have the Bijan product but I haven't seen much in the way of updates for a few months. Anyone got any thoughts/suggestions on this? Regards, Mike
  5. Regarding reverse thrust for the PMDG 737 in MSFS, I found that this worked if you have the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke/throttle quadrant. Make sure engines are running. Go to Controls menu make sure filter is set to ALL. Select your flight yoke option. Go to Power Management/Throttle section. Look for "Throttle 1 decrease". Click on empty left hand column, and in window that opens click on search by input. Press down throttle lever (black knob "Z" axis) to indented position. "Z" should appear in left column. Make sure action type is set to "On Press". Validate command and apply and save, Now do exactly the same for "Throttle 2 decrease" Now go back to the cockpit and depress the throttle, you should see both throttle reverse levers come forward and the main forward levers stay at idle. Just lift the physical lever out of the detent and throttle returns to idle. This method will only give you full reverse thrust but it does the job. I personally couldn't get other suggestions posted on forums to work but I know that some people have had success. Hope this helps all you Saitek users out there. Regards, Mike
  6. Frank, I think that teleportation, space/ time paradoxes or wormholes could be the problem 😜 Mike
  7. Phil, yes I found out afterwards that there as indeed a server outage which have a bearing on my problem. Thanks for your input. Frank, I tried your suggestion of signing out and then signing back in, but unfortunately that didn't work. Looks like I've lost a lot of flying hours! Yes, I've also had the "in the vicinity" and 0 landings and takeoffs. I guess over time Microsoft/Asobo will get it right, still early days yet. Just a suggestion, but if you really want to start over again, why not recreate your profile? Many thanks Mike
  8. Hi All, today I sent the following to Zendesk which is self explanatory “When I first launched MSFS today I had a message stating that the internet connection was lost (my internet was working outside of the simulator). I'm not sure if that is relevant but I mention it just on case. I then had a message saying that Content Manager was not up to date, I could not get off this screen so I had to use End Task to close MSFS. I closed down the PC and when I went back a couple of hours later and launched MSFS everything was working fine, lost connection problem had disappeared. I carried out a small flight in the Cessna 172, live weather etc all good. At the end of the flight, this was recorded in the log book, but when I looked more carefully, this was the ONLY flight recorded!! I have lost over 70 hours of flying time!! Is there any way to recover this?? Is there a back up somewhere??“ Has anyone else experienced this? And you have, is there a solution.? Many thanks, Mike
  9. Pranav, it certainly sounds like a hardware problem if you’ve tried everything that I’ve suggested. Ray is absolutely right about contacting the company that you purchased the yoke from. Don’t give up and let us know how you get on. Regards, Mike
  10. This may seem obvious, but have you opened the Logitech control panel and gone to the Programming tab to see if your yoke is responding to the inputs from the buttons/yoke movement etc? You could also try opening devices/printers in Windows Control Panel and check the Properties to see if the yoke is working properly and also try Windows troubleshooting the device while you're there. Maybe you could try the yoke on another PC? I'm just trying to establish if it's a software issue or that you do actually have a hardware defect with the yoke. Hope this helps, Regards, Mike
  11. I found that if you install the Logitech software/drivers available from their site, then you will find that the yoke clock will change to the PC system time and also the yoke will be programable if you wish to change the default button settings. Here is the site address https://support.logi.com/hc/en-us/articles/360024151314 Regards, Mike
  12. Ok thanks for clarifying that Dave, must have me then. It was just a coincidence that on that particular flight I had asked for higher clearance which is something I don’t do all the time especially on short haul. thanks again, regards Mike
  13. Hi Dave, I was wondering if you could clarify something for me. Does P2ATC know what your cruising altitude is? Say for example the flight plan says cruising altitude FL 350 but after reaching this, at some point in the flight you request say FL400, is P2ATC aware of this when calculating your descent? The reason I ask this is because I did a flight the other day but found that I was too high when I was approaching the airport which resulted in a go around. Should I have maybe have asked for descent back to FL350 a few hundred miles out so that my descent would give me the correct approach level as per the flight plan? Or did I just mess up my descent 😛. It would be nice to know for future use especially on long haul. Many thanks, Mike
  14. Thanks for the prompt reply Dave. I've just completed a flight EGKK to LEZL successfully using P2A so I agree with you that it must be the plan. I was thinking also of sourcing the plan elsewhere and trying to import it and if successful with filing the new plan, then exam the 2 together to see if I could spot any differences. Anyway it's good to know that there is a workaround for such cases. It's the first time that it's happened using P2A. I've been thinking more about this, and I seem to recall the odd occasion when I've used P3D for flight planning and crashed P3D with a rogue plan. Thanks for taking the time to research this for me, you offer a superb service, perhaps it may also help someone else if they have the same problem in the future. Regards, Mike
  15. Well it's the next day. I've tried to file the flight plan and now P2A is crashing again. I tried some different gates but still the same happens. Here is a copy of the AppConfig.xml which hopefully you can glean some insight from. https://www.dropbox.com/s/x8gbgue5ycqzd09/AppConfig.xml?dl=0 Thanks Mike
