  1. that's it! thank you. i was reading the DX10 Anti Aliasing section but still unsure which button to push. another happy customer. joe
  2. gday. i have have flashing 'lights' on the ground in daytime. night time seems not to be affected. the effect is [with movement over the ground] like large bright street lights or large fireflys as the aircraft moves over the ground. i suspect, associated with this is a moire effect in day time of thin straight edges, like light poles, even when stationary on the ground. what settings do i need to adjust? thanks joe
  3. thanks Alex, that clears things up. now, don't scold about reading the manual. we DO read the manual - all the time - but we are trying to reconcile what we are reading with what we know and this is muddled by what we think should be, or expect. remember that you have this all in your head whereas we need to read and understand it [sometimes muddled, as i said]. and sometimes, we just need to talk to you about it to make sense of things. thanks hugely for your fantastic program. joe
  4. thanks Alex. my thinking is: 200 liters total fuel available 30 reserve, 11 taxi i am expecting 200 liters at the top of flight plan decreasing as we fly the legs. i note that you say but the toolhelp refers to minimum fuel for 30 minutes [i am using 45 min reserve fuel] i'm also reading https://www.skybrary.aero/index.php/Fuel_-_Flight_Planning_Definitions and going through section 34. Aircraft Performance . joe
  5. --------------------------------------------- i expect this number to be 200 https://www.dropbox.com/s/pvzmrjvd8y7nxwx/Cessna Skyhawk 172SP Green VH-KVJ.lnmperf?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/6cm7fwq9ygcwfvd/IFR Bankstown (YSBK) to Maitland (YMND).pln?dl=0
  6. hello. i can't get my fuel plan to begin with the 200 liters [c172] in my aircraft performance profile. it's just simple 1 hour flight, times, distances show correctly in the flight plan but the fuel column does not begin with the 200 liters, full tanks. i do i fix this? regards joe
  7. hello. exporting a flight plan to vPilot seems to work ... loading into vPilot gives 'Error loading flight plan. There is an error in XML document {2,457). ' joe
  8. hello. is there a doc for GNS430/530 integration into the Eaglesoft Cirrus SR22G3 Turbo X ? thanks.
  9. thank you once again for your precise support. i have been checking my way of working with the GNS. sometimes i am able to select whatever i want and then from a different place i am not. as i write this and work with the GNS everything i do is working fine except for one select of VECTORS for Maitland RNAV which blurred out. i retried the procedure and it was selected okay. so i will hold on the tech support until i have a more consistent errors. as far as Little Navmap goes, it uses a Navigraph database and is the best moving map i have seen. the Mindstar GNS does not like working with it but that is okay. one cannot be greedy in one's GPS usage. thanks again Ed, i will let you know if i get consistent errors with the GNS. joe
  10. i have Little Navmap but it does not need installing just works from a unzipped folder. i am not using it while testing the GNS. i load FSX to Williamtown NSW, slew a few miles out. when i select PROC the APT field is YMND [Maitland, NSW] [it is a nearby airport] and APT field cannot be changed by the usual methods. j.
  11. this is not a how to problem. i have been using the GNS 530 for a number of years. the problem is that the GNS 530 loads in the aircraft okay and i can select say an ILS approach for the current airport but cannot select any other airport or procedure by selecting PROC after that. about deleting the GNS 530, i was going to delete the software and start again but my system will not allow that as i get the permissions to access msiexec.exe problem. i have backtracked trying to find what might have interfered with the GNS. i had installed FSUIPC but have disable it and have installed OrbX for Australia which i think changed Objectflow.dll but i have not installed anything else into this Steam FSX except a few small scenery addons. j. UTC +10
  12. hello. my Mindstar GNS 530 for FSX Steam - windows 10 will not select a procedure. while setting letters for the ID they keep changing to an nearby airport but still unable to select a procedure. i cannot delete the GNS because i get an box telling me i don't have permissions to access msiexec.exe . could id get some help with this please? j
  13. hello. i am trying to re activate my GNS 530 on a new laptop - steam on win 10 but it will not connect. i get an 'error 2'. i have used the Sim Supporter tool to disable the Microsoft FSX entry [not Steam] could i get a fix please? j.
  14. moving from CD to Steam i did not closely read the GNS 430/530 Download & Installation Instructions page. thanks for the fantastic support to fix my broken sim.
