  1. I thought I saw on Facebook that version 4.0 was now available, if so where is it ??
  2. Hey Guys! It is a BETA....remember!!!
  3. Canadian Thanksgiving Day here today (Monday October 9th)(Public/Bank Holiday) All eating turkey I guess. Don't expect a reply before tomorrow (Tuesday) BTW I have two accounts, both down !! Still a great program tho. Kevin promised an off line facility at Cosford in Beta 4.00 RSN!! Richard Myers - Burlington, Onatrio Canada
  4. OK, OK... Forget my previous messages and emails. Finally sorted it /but had to create an entirely new email address on the desktop (not normally used for email!) Also set up email client for same also on desktop. I realize that you are paranoid about "cracking" but I really think you should look at an alternative method of downloading and authenticating Taken me a long time to figure out, probably because I am jet lagged after returning from UK Wednesday evening also being 85 doesn't help! It;s a good job it's such a GREAT program, goodbye EZCA Regards from a fellow Canadian RichardMyers
  5. Please see my various emails to your company, Totally confused and out of pocket $50can Not good !!! Richard
  6. Thanks for clarifying Keven. To maintain flexibility I will purchase another license for the desktop. Is there any way I can copy the various camera settings from one to the other?
  7. I have just returned home from an extended stay in the UK where I used my laptop to fly with Chaseplane. Now I'm back at home base (Canada) and can use my desktop with a proper video card. I don't believe I have to send you another $39 US to use chaseplane beta on the desktop, or do I ? Surely I can use it on both?
  8. Thanks for your supportive message James. Yes I am a relative newcomer to this whole business, plus being almost 86 I'm afraid my short term memory is not as good as it was when I was an active software developer. The good news is that I have now successfully completed the tutorial flight and also managed Matt Davies' EGLL/OMDB including parking at building. Did get a "NO AUTOLAND" message but it didn't seem to make any difference. I landed right down the middle and taxied on and shut down. Very satisfying, now "onward and upward" Regards Richard Myers
  9. Thanks guys, all sorted now. Regds Richard Myers
  10. I regulalrly update my Navigraph Airac files. The latest (1709) makes a total nonsense of the stars for the 777 Tutorial. Is there a way of reverting to the airac that was installed with the 777 so that the STAR is the same as the tutorial? Tried reinstalling 777, no change. Regards Richard Myers
  11. I think my problem is a matter of timing. If I arm LOC too soon the tendency is for the aircraft to slew onto the runway heading immediately. and then leave the path altogether. If I get the arming timing correct, ie leave it until we are on the correct heading it then seems too late to arm the G/S. I am of course checking the FMA all the time and understand the meanings of the various messages. Just made the approach again and this time apart from "Too Low - Terrain" warnings (which I ignored) I did manage to land, Mind you I almost ran out of runway! BTW I have of course run the Tutorial several times but it is too specific to that route to give me any general guidance as to the approach/landing sequence. I have been flying the A/S A319 for some months now and of course that bird does all the correct settings for you, so I guess I've got to learn how to fly PROPERLY ! Regards from Canada - Richard
  12. The last few entries on my FMC Legs page are as follows... CI26L 240/2000 FI26L 170/2000 RW26L 170/253 Having armed the LOC it is captured but I can't then capture the G/S. Plane just overflies airport or goes into a series of circles at 2000feet What am I doing wrong or not doing? Richard Myers 85 yr old Noob !
  13. Thanks Romain, that works. Sorry about the lack of name, didn't realize it wouldn't be automatically displayed. Duly corrected.
