  1. Hi Not sure where I should go first with this issue, so I thought I'd try here for suggestions. I'm using P3D 4.5 w/HF3 and have recently reinstalled my entire OS, P3D and add-ons (I performed a complete drive wipe first). I'm using headphone through my monitor, which is being fed by a HDMI cable coming out of my GTX970. I'm using nVidia driver version Looks like it's making me use nVidia sound drivers - there are no other options in Sound Settings (NS-40D510NA15 Monitor is my only playback option, using NVIDIA HD Audio as a controller). Here the issue: I get volume swells and dips when using GSX on passenger load, etc. By this I mean that passenger loading sounds come in extreme loudly, and then drop out when using P3D ATC, and then come back in again 30 seconds later. I used to manage these issues using two methods: 1) Sound Control panel => Communications => Do nothing selection 2) Right-click on NS-40D510NA15 => Properties => uncheck Allow applications to take exclusive control AND => Enhancements => Disable all enhancements Used to work, now it doesn't. And it's not just GSX (couatl scripting engine) - anything running external to P3D using sound will be affected in some way. Any ideas on what to do, or which support forum to go to? (P3D, GSX, NVIDIA, Windows, etc?) Thanks for your help, Daniel
  2. Hi, I'm worried that this may contravene AVSIM license discussion policy - apologies if it does, please shut this down if so. I'd ask in the Prepar3D forums, but they seem overwhelmed at the moment (not to mention their forum is unbearably slow) I've been trying to conduct a total re-installation of P3Dv4.5, including a complete wipe and reinstall of Windows 10. This is due to CTD issues I've been having with the Aerosoft A330 Pro and D3D10Warp.dll It's been an odyessy, to say the least, that has chewed up a number of weeks, and has included something like 15-20 tech/support people from Aerosoft, Microsoft, ASUS, etc. - some of which are awaiting replies to see how latest install went. Of course, just as I'm approaching the finish line, I get a P3D exceeded the number of installs error. So now I have contacted Prepar3D and ask for my license to be renewed. The problem is that it takes 2 business days - so 4 with the looming weekend - and I'm reading a post on their forum from someone saying they haven't received a reply to their same request in a something like a week. So it could be a week or more, in which time the good will and support tickets of those who are helping me through this are expiring. So my question is; is it totally wrong of me (or are there other issues) with purchasing a second copy of P3Dv4, using that license in order to give them enough time to respond to my request, and then applying for a refund of that license? Appreciate any guidance here, Daniel
  3. Gotten the same thing a couple of times now, too. Will watch this thread for any answers... Daniel
  4. Hi there, A question - excuse me if it's a little naïve: I have a 970GTX, in your opinion is there much value in this new driver for me? (Looks like I'm using Thanks, Daniel
  5. Hi all, I've tried at the Aerosoft forum but despite their best efforts they were unable to help. Does anyone have the Aerosoft A330 Pro and Saitek throttles and have reverse thrust working properly? I can get everything to work except the reverse thrust - that's trying both the P3D standard enabled controls and FSUIPC controls (either/or situation, not at the same time obviously). Using P3D 4.5 HF2 Windows 10.0.17763 Home Saitek Flight Yoke & Throttle + 2nd Saitek Throttle Quadrant, CH Rudders Here's the thread, in case it helps anyone with similar problems: https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/151203-reverse-engine-wont-stay-engaged/ Many thanks for any help, Daniel
  6. Happy to report that in the end this worked. Many thanks for all your help - I really appreciate everyone weighing in and guiding me to the solution. Cheers, Daniel
  7. All else has failed, so you're absolutely right - that what I'm going to have to do! I'll try that now Many thanks for your suggestion!
  8. Hi Peter, Yes, it's a good guess and I have noticed that too, but it says it's in Live Mode, and connected. But it just never injects the weather. I get the Active Sky Weather Request option on the Add-On drop down menu, get the pop-up but when I go to select 1 - Current Active weather, nothing appears. Appreciate any further thoughts you have, Daniel
  9. Hi Bob, Yes, ran as admin, and disabled Windows 10 Real Time Protection - no other AV. Cheers, Daniel
  10. Hi Bob, Yes, just checked and it is. Thanks, Daniel
  11. Hi Bob, Thanks for your help here! Okay, I didn't know that - I thought the installer would take care of all those kind of things... I went back and tried to activate all those and it unfortunately didn't solve the issue. Two things that might be the culprit; 1) My load scenario might be messed up: the default Raptor seems to be missing - at least I get an error about it not being found, even though it's there in the folder 2) I uninstalled the P3D v3 versions of Active Sky (I think it was Next) as I haven't used it in years and wanted the space. But I would have thought uninstalling and reinstalling Active Sky for P3Dv4 would have been the cleanest way to get it going again... Any thoughts I that? I truly appreciate your help. Daniel
  12. Hi, I'm suddenly finding that Active Sky is no longer injecting weather into P3D 4.5 . All I changed was that I purchased and installed the Aerosoft A330. I uninstalled and reinstalled Active Sky build 7208. Then I tried build 7361. I reinstalled Simconnect several times. I even tried repairing P3D V4.5 Client. I submitted a ticket to HiFi Sim but don't yet have a response - not sure their support is very active? Active Sky says it's connected, but the weather never gets injected. Does anyone have any ideas what might have gone wrong? Thanks, Daniel
  13. Hi there, Anyone know why I might suddenly be getting this error on load? The default plane is the F-22 Raptor, and it's in a folder called IRIS Raptor Driver, right? That's all there, I haven't changed anything. I even deleted the VehicleFavorites.xml file and let it rebuild. Thanks for any help, Daniel
  14. Why am I not seeing this on the downloads page? The A321-X Liveries link does not exist for me. When I purchased the a321 it sent me an email saying it had updated me to the A321X (P3Dv4) customers group. So, shouldn't I see it? Thanks for any help, Daniel
  15. A question for everyone having issues with the update; I thought I read in the QW update notes that the update was so extensive that required you to uninstall and then reinstall from scratch. I haven't but haven't had a chance to fly it yet. Wondering if this step would help people? Daniel
