  1. Ok, will do. Thanks Dave.
  2. Dave, trying to send you the file, but for some reason it says that the security settings in my browser will not allow it. Can't figure why FireFox will not all me to send you the file.
  3. For some reason, everytime after landing, as soon as I clear the runway and make the call to tower that I am clear, there is no answer. I am never told to contact ground, when I do contact ground, I am ignored again. Ground will acknowledge my radio call, but give no direction such as, "taxi to the ramp". This has just started happening on my last 5-10 flights. I am at controlled airports so I'm not sure what is going on. Any suggestions?
  4. Dave, I read a couple of reviews on P2A in the PC Pilot magazine. Really glad the lady that did the original review decided to go back and give P2A a more comprehensive review. She got it right on her second review. I've had P2A for a month now and am really enjoying it. I've had PF3 and Radar Contact, but by far P2A is the best in my opinion. You've done a great job on this program and your support is outstanding. Thanks for a great program and glad your finally getting some recognition for the work your doing. Thanks again. Rodger
  5. Thanks Dave. Bill, that is pretty much exactly what I was experiencing.
  6. Was doing some touch and goes and after the 3rd or 4th touch and go, it was like they forgot about me. So I continued to do some touch and goes, then all of a sudden they kept clearing me to do touch and goes. Must have been about 5 or 6 consecutive calls clearing me for a touch and go. After that things went back to normal. Kind of odd. Also, when I clear the runway, I'm never told to contact ground. So I try and contact ground on my own, but no answer.
  7. Ok, thanks Dave. Guess I'll have to set up that 24" monitor and run it from there.
  8. Dave, I for some reason cannot download P2A to my android tablet and get it to open. However, I do have an older laptop with windows 7. I have downloaded P2A to it. Should I purchase P2A on this laptop or my desktop which I am using the 10 day trial. Sorry for the hassle. Once again thanks for your help. Much appreciated. Rodger
  9. Ok, thank you.
  10. No problem. Dave after I purchase P2A, do I just download it onto my tablet so I can use it during a flight. Not sure how that would work?
  11. Well, I just went out and bought a 34" monitor, got it set up and did my first flight with P2A and it worked perfectly. So now I'll be able to purchase P2A.. Thanks Dave for your help. Gonna really enjoy this.
  12. Dave, I'm finding that it is one or the other. I cannot get P2A to sit on top when in the triple screen mode. The screen will only show one or the other. Not like in the single screen mode. Don't understand why but I'll open up FSX, then bring up P2A . As I said before in the single screen mode it works as advertised. But as soon as I bring it to the triple screen mode P2A is minimized. If I bring up P2A, then FSX is minimized. Very frustrating as I want this program to work so badly. I guess maybe my only option would be to get a panoramic monitor and then I'm sure P2a would work. But I currently have a 60" panoramic view with the triple screen monitor. However, in order to be able to have P2A it would be a sacrifice I could make. One question Dave, if I went to say a 35" monitor, could I still use one of my 24" monitors for P2A? Thanks for your patience and help. Much appreciated. Rodger
  13. Thanks Dave for the information. However, I am running a triple screen monitor. Don't know if that may be part of the problem or not. I'll go back and undo everything I did and give it another try. Ok, I believe it is because I'm using a triple screen monitor. In single screen mode, things work just as you say. However, when I switch to the triple screen mode, the screens are automatically in full screen. I go to windowed mode and do alt+tab FSX goes to the taskbar and will not reopen. As long as I'm in the single screen mode everything is fine. However, I have been flying for so long with triple screen monitors there is no way I can go back to a single screen. I hope and pray there is a workaround for this. This is the best ATC program I have found.
  14. Yes, I only have FSX:SE installed. I just got done flying another 5 touch and goes. What I have to do is before taxi, put in ground and tower frequencies. Then I minimize P2A. Even if I don't minimize P2A, and I click on any function FSX goes to minimize and I absolutely cannot get it back. Once I get to the runway and change to tower, I leave it there and I'm fine as long as I don't bring P2A back up. As soon as I do FSX is gone forever. No matter what I do it will not come back. I have to reboot FSX:SE and start all over. I really think this program is awesome, but if I can't get this fixed I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to go with it.
  15. I am having a real problem with P2A in that when I click anywhere on it, FSX:SE goes away and I can't get it back. I can click on the task bar and sometimes it comes back and sometimes it doesn't. Most of the time it doesn't. So I followed DrumsArt's advice and unticked the second option in the FSX General Parameters menu "pause on task switch", and in the FSX.cfg file the parameter is "PAUSE_ON_LOST_FOCUS =0" as instructed in his post. I don't know if this is a problem because I am using FSX:SE. The Steam FSXSEConfig is an EXE so I cannot access that file. The only fsx.cfg file I can access is C:\Users\MyName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX. My FSX:SE is located on my D:. I'm not a computer guru so I don't know if that makes any difference. I am in window mode, with "on top". In the config, I have set a button to Minimize the P2A and it works fine. I have carefully read the manual and I'm pretty sure I'm doing things right but can't figure this out.. I got it to work for the most part last night when I first got it installed and flew some touch and goes and it was awesome. Think I'm going to really enjoy this program if I can just figure this out. I also went to download a program from Flight 1 called "SoundStream" so I don't lose the sound, however, it only works with the "Boxed" version. Would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks. Rodger
