  1. Thanks. Will try both and let you know.
  2. Hi all i am using GSX ground services by fsdt in P3dv4 when I start a scenario I use a Dash and pick the aircraft to be at Gate 8 at EGNM by uk2000 the Dash is parking brake on and engines off. When I ask for GSX the menu is asking if I want to park at parking or a gate. I can’t seem to get the pushback menu. even if I choose gate 8 from the menu that does appear, it says a Marshall is on his way but he never arrives. when first going into the scenario I want the menu for loading, fuelling and pushback. anyone have any ideas thanks in advance
  3. Thank you, that clears that question.
  4. Hi All As the title says, I have used Run Manager to start ASN, Flying School, Chaseplane etc but I cant see how I can get them to run as administrator. I know I can pause their start and get them to shut down after the sim closes but some of the programs I want to run as admin, definitely fs flight school. is this possible? thanks
  5. Sorry about that, wrong Cessna, I meant the stock X-Plane one. Thanks for that, I can understand the above. Is there a config file that can be deleted so it can generate a new one?
  6. This evening I took out my 5930k and replaced it with my new 6950x. I also have a 1080 ti ftw3 graphics card and 32mb of 2400 ddr4 so it is not a crawling machine. The 5930k was o/c to 4.5ghz and I managed to get the 6950x up to 4.2ghz on first attempt. Before I removed my old chip I tested X-Plane 11 with it, all settings maxed out with me sat in the A2A 182 in San Francisco int, looking out of the window showing 25 FPS on my msi afterburner readout. i swapped the chips and set the exact same situation up and behold, 19 FPS any ideas please. thanks ps. Water cooled system and no cores showing over 30 - 40% load
  7. Oh I see. Thanks Pete, but if I have installed all this Orbx scenery using the supplied Ftx central, why does my sim look so dreadful and nothing like it should. There are no green fields of England, just large rectangular pieces of water, green tree like patterns etc and all 2d apart from some box like buildings near the runways. It's nothing like the utube videos of UK scenery.
  8. Thanks guys. But i still don't understand who or what is supposed to decide which entry in the scenery config file Is showing REQUIRED =TRUE OR FALSE. i am assuming that Orbx puts the entry in relating to each piece of scenery, but who should turn it on or off? can anyone explain?
  9. I installed v4 and then I ran Orbx Fx3 central and installed Global Base, Vector, Europe LC, North America LC, England, Scotland, Wales. All showed as installed correctly. I then ran P3d and set off from Cardiff, UK. The scenery was awful and looked nothing like the scenery on the many utube videos I have watched. So I downloaded scenery.cfg editor as I had read good things about it. I set it up and it loaded all my scenery files into its view pane. They all seemed to be in a different position to the order I had installed them but they were all ticked and had no errors showing. When I clicked on the text file tab I could see my scenery.cfg file. I noticed all the entries other than the default scenery had the line "REQUIRED=FALSE" and the default had "REQUIRED=TRUE" can I assume that this is why my scenery looks rubbish. I thought when I installed the orbx stuff in their fx3 thingy it would be in the sim. So can I change every FALSE to TRUE in my scenery.cfg text file to get things working or is there a better way? Also can anyone explain what affect does the position of the scenery in the library have on things. Fx3 central asks where in the library I want to put the scenery file but what difference does it make? I would assume that Base needs to load before Vector, before Europe LC, before England, before EGFF. please advise thanks.
  10. Thanks, I will try that this evening. Jon
  11. Hi purchased and Installed reboot a few weeks ago from Just Flight. Last night I thought I would give it a try. I have win 8 so went into my apps screen and found all the fs2 crew apps including the fs2 crew configurator which I ran. It opened up and a message came up saying an update was available so I went to my Just Flight account and re downloaded the install package. I ran the file and did notice on the screen that it said version 3.1. I pressed version P3D v3 and noticed it was going to install it in my P3D folder. here is the problem, after the installation I noticed it didn't show anything to do with the direct x files like it did with the original installation. anyway after it had finished when I went to my win 8 apps screen, all the fs2 crew aps had gone. so I went to my p3d folder using win explorer and found the fs2 crew folder. there was no configurator files. nearly all of the folders were empty. I have tried to uninstall it using the add/remove programs but it said a problem had occurred trying to uninstall it. I have re downloaded it and re installed it but I don't get the win 8 apps and the folders remain empty with no sign of the configurator. I have looked in the forum but cant find anything similar. any ideas? Thanks in advance
  12. I uninstalled Ftx global using their own included uninstaller in windows apps as I had some errors within the installation so it definitely went. It's now that I am trying to re install it that the problem has arisen.
  13. Hi everyone I updated p3d to the latest version and it was not straight forward. It took a few attempts to get it working again and when I did I thought I would check my orbx scenery. It was all messed up and I have had to re install it all as fx central 2 would not work. Anyway all went well until I came to my pilots fx2010 global terrain software. I downloaded all the files from flight sim store (about 22Gb) and set the install wrapper going (after un installing it using the built in app) the wrapper asks which version of the installation I want, so I choose p3d v3, it then says it's getting ready to install and then when it says it's ready to install I press ok and it goes straight to a box saying it has installed and click ok to finish. Something thinks its already installed. I've looked in the registry to see if any strings have been left or such like but can't find anything. Any ideas folks? Thanks in advance Snowy
  14. :smile:Hi everyone I am hoping you can offer me some advice about my plans for a sim system. I have a high end PC with two Titan x cards in sli which at the moment run just one philips 40" 4k monitor. I am running P3D v3 with all the orbx packs, active sky, rex4 and A2A C182 as a learning aircraft. I am going to get the Saitek yoke, pedals, throttle etc. My query is this I have a fair bit of space where my PC is located. Should I ditch the 40" monitor I have and put a 65" curved 4k tv on my desk @ £1500 or should I get another 40" and have a two monitor setup @ £550 or should I get another 2 40" monitors and have a three monitor setup. @ £1100 I am going to train on the c182 but I do want to fly things like the Q400 or the 737, 777 eventually. I also love train sim 2016 :-) I think the titan, (zoltan) cards have multiple outputs but how would I best connect two or three monitors in the best way for my setup. Thanks everyone in advance.
