  1. Hello Richard, Rod (stiletto2) from the Misty Moorings Team has put together a fantastic guide to replace these non compatible simobjects Click the link below and read the PDF file http://return.mistymoorings.com/p3d_v4_faq/zips/TFX SimObjects AI Update for P3Dv4 V1.1 8-7-17.zip
  2. Hello Richard Yes that's correct if you have Tongass Installed into FSX you will just need to Copy the required files from your FSX Installation and Paste them into the correct Prepar3D v4 folder locations Please see the post below for these files https://www.avsim.com/applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7791/28126288201_d414d7bde3_o.png&key=8eebd358a0b218a56ac0d231e08481cd2e19a4d6ffa2ddeb4b16e86f730c45d3 After that you need to set up your Terrain.cfg file and then Launch Prepar3D > World > Scenery library, and add the 2 Tongass scenery's like below https://www.avsim.com/applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7227/27581749574_145d64078c_o.png&key=4d088c771f5d0e394c249c02a6587cf11c51144de51b57c8eab0621aa61f0280

  5. 9) How to repair a Corrupt User Interface (UI) A quick Tutorial on how to repair a corrupt Oversized User Interface (UI) for Prepar3D This is due to a corrupt UISettings.xml file located below. Local Disk (C:) ► Users ► You ► AppData ► Roaming ► Lockheed Martin ► Prepar3D - UISettings.xml To repair this you would simply delete this file and it will generate again as default when you launch Prepar3D I have also Included additional Information in the first pinned post of the comments
  6. Hello Richard Glad to see you back on the Forums. I will now close this Topic as its over 4 years old I'm sure Q_flyer wont mind to much Topic locked
  7. Hi Joel Try this..... Remove all USB devices from your computer Including extra monitors (except keyboard and mouse) Then launch Prepar3D and test
  8. Hi What i am referring to here is............ After running the Tongass Installer and Even though you have FSX Installed you still need to set up your Terrain.cfg file and add the Scenery to your Prepar3D scenery library. Did you manage to get your terrain.cfg file set up ? Is this were you are tripping up on ?
  9. Hi As you have already Uninstalled all your Add On's try this............... Remove your 3 generated folders automatically by following the step below Navigate to your core Prepar3D v4 folder, Scroll down a bit, Double left Click on the file Delete Generated Files After you do this, Launch Prepar3D and test This will eliminate your .cfg files from this Issue
  10. Hi xxd09 Yes I seen that post, That will work also but just to make a couple of points.............. There are 3 main parts to getting Tongass Fjords up and running in Prepar3D 1) Running the Installer 2) Setting up your Terrain.cfg file 3) Adding the Tongass scenery to the Prepar3D Scenery library After you complete the 3 main parts, you have 2 more steps to complete 1) Moving the elevation, simobjects, effects files to the correct locations 2) Removing the non compatible AI aircraft from the Tongas package 1) Running the Installer You cant go wrong here, No matter where you point the Installer the required folders will only Install to 1 of 3 places. Have a look at the link below and the 3 locations 2) Setting up your Terrain.cfg file The terrain.cfg file is a generated file, meaning this file will generated if you delete it when Prepar3D is launched next. Basically you can delete your terrain.cfg file as many times as you like it will always generate again. So if you go wrong you can delete it and start over again. Note: After deleting this file you need to launch Prepar3D to allow it to generate a new terrain.cfg file 3) Adding the Tongass scenery to the Prepar3D Scenery library This is pretty straight forward by adding these scenerys to the Prepar3D scenery library --------------------------- The only thing that may trip you up is your terrain.cfg file and as i said you can start over again if you go wrong Where exactly are you with the process now ?
  11. Hi Gerold Possibly you have a corrupt dll.xml file Try this.......... Move both dll.xml files out of there locations onto your desktop, Then launch prepar3D and test Copy the TEX below and Paste them into your windows search bar one by one and click on the result, this will bring you to the correct locations Move both dll.xml files out onto your desktop, then launch and test %APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 %PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4
  12. No problem As you only have a small amount of Add On's you could also try step 6) in the first link (Refreshing Prepar3D and Orbx Scenery) This will eliminate a lot of things from your Issue As i said your Issue could be many things but the above steps are quick steps when you are running with little Add On's
  13. Hello Your Issue could be many things, here is a quick step below you could try (Some small maintenance) As you only have Orbx Scenery Installed the Topic below is tailored for it This will refresh your Orbx Scenery. You could also reinstall OR roll back your graphic drivers to see if this was causing you the Issue. Insure you Tick the box for "Perform a clean Installation" during the Install process when prompted to Or you could use a driver removal Tool like below
  14. Hello What other Scenery Add On's do you have Installed ?
  15. Hello After a driver update there would be no harm to delete the Prepar3D.cfg file and the Shaders folder, These files will generate again as default when Prepar3D is launched next, this wont effect any of your Add On's, You will just need to apply your scenery \ graphic settings again to your preference via Prepar3D > Options after you delete the Prepar3D.cfg file Delete the Prepar3D.cfg file and the Shaders folder Copy the TEX below and Paste it into your windows search bar and click on the result, this will bring you directly to the correct locations Delete the Shaders folder %LOCALAPPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 Delete the Prepar3D.cfg file %APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 Then launch Prepar3D and test
