  1. Yes, I also use a Thrustmaster 1600M 'twist' axis as steering tiller. It has only misbehaved today, so I will wait and see.
  2. Today my steering tiller went to full left deflection after push back. Nothing I did solved it (use FSUIPC to assign/calibrate). Came back after 5 minutes all by itself. Continued flight (7 hrs 45mins). After landing it worked to exit runway but then locked out at full deflection again. Never happened before. All controls are disabled in default and I use FSUIPC to assign/calibrate as stated. Rebooted and reloaded a new flight - all seemed OK. Temporary glitch??? Any help appreciated.
  3. The problem was, strangely, in the Orbx ObjectFlow add-on. When I uninstalled this add-on the problem went away. I do need to find out how to install ObjectFlow without this happening.
  4. Suddenly getting continual CTD. From my Windows 10 Event Reporting (if this is any help) I get the following: + System - Provider [ Name] Windows Error Reporting - EventID 1001 [ Qualifiers] 0 Version 0 Level 4 Task 0 Opcode 0 Keywords 0x80000000000000 - TimeCreated [ SystemTime] 2021-05-03T10:31:31.0865717Z EventRecordID 12854 Correlation - Execution [ ProcessID] 0 [ ThreadID] 0 Channel Application Computer DESKTOP-R2IIA1D Security - EventData 1660371279093806013 4 APPCRASH Not available 0 Prepar3D.exe 5fb44f72 facilities.dll 5fb44eda c0000005 00000000000203c2 \\?\C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\Temp\WER808A.tmp.dmp \\?\C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\Temp\WER8202.tmp.WERInternalMetadata.xml \\?\C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\Temp\WER8213.tmp.xml \\?\C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\Temp\WER8213.tmp.csv \\?\C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\Temp\WER8224.tmp.txt \\?\C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive\AppCrash_Prepar3D.exe_81f5d9b0101a44c9dc8721e34caa2de327f97b40_b489456f_24c577fc-90ef-4056-904c-66618a1b170c 0 d1367561-2d28-4cea-ad8c-4bffd9bc230e 268435456 5cf01a0a8882748d570ad2e19da5b3bd 0 Looking elsewhere I also get the following error message: Application: Prepar3D.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. Exception Info: System.AccessViolationException at <Module>.UIInterface.UnmanagedMapViewer.{dtor}(UIInterface.UnmanagedMapViewer*) at UIInterface.MapViewer.!MapViewer() at UIInterface.MapViewer.Dispose(Boolean) If anyone can help I would be extremely grateful!
  5. Hi, When operating ActiveSky in Manual mode, if I set anything other than "Unlimited" in <Visibility> I get a very hazy, limited visibility. For example, if I set 50 miles the actual visibility rendered is a very hazy +/- 10 miles. I wouldlike the usual control over visibility to be restored. I am using P3Dv5.1.
  6. Not only have I just had a P3Dv4.5 system crash, but I cannot contact the official P3D support website (error message says: General Error SQL ERROR [ mysqli ] User prepar22 already has more than 'max_user_connections' active connections [1203] So I am not sure what is happening. Regarding the sim crash I checked the <Event Viewer> and found it recorded a critical error. The faulting module showed up as: Faulting Module: D3D10Warp.dll ver. 10.0.19041 Does anyone know what is happening here? Are there any known solutions? All help appreciated.
  7. Occasionally when in cruise the Performance is still in Climb Mode. I have tried several ways to get the mode to transition to Cruise, but without success. I am sure there must be a simple fix? Any help much appreciated.
  8. During my last two flights flying the QOTS II B747-400 the LNAV or Heading Mode Annunciator on the PFD, depending on which was selected, has come up with a horizontal yellow line through (indicating a malfunction), the shortly after this the autopilot has disconnected. The first time this happened was after about three hours into the flight. Yesterday it occurred after about 10 minutes into flight. I am thinking of deleting the aircraft .cfg file - would this be a reasonable attempt to cure the problem?
  9. Thank you for that - I wasn't hallucinating, then! 😎
  10. Am flying over St Lawrence seaway eastbound of CYMX at 41,000 ft. Just seen what looked like a satellite/meteorite re-entry directly ahead of aircraft at elevation of + 2 to +5 degrees. Three white irregular fireballs moving left to right, very fast, trailing about 5 - 8 degrees. Duration about 1.5 seconds +/-. Does our scenery (P3Dv4.5) have these programmed in? Never seen anything like this before except in real life. Or am I losing it? 😲
  11. Oh dear! The good news is that I've solved the problem The bad news? I was an word not allowed - somehow I missed an incorrect setting (by me) in FSUIPC, despite having checked it several times - put it down to age
  12. I am having the following problem with my QualityWings B787-8 aircraft: pressing SHIFT+BACKSPACE moves the eye-point DOWN pressing SHIFT+ENTER also moves the eye-point DOWN The key stroke SHIFT+ENTER should move the eye-point UP These are default key commands which can be checked by entering the key commands section from the <Vehicle> drop-down menu. This I have done and they are there as expected. This means, I think, that somewhere in the QW B787-8 files this default command is being over-written. I have even gone into FSUIPCv6 and entered the correct key command there, but it is still being over-written.
  13. To change the weight units used, go to the QW 787.cfg file. Open it in notebook. Add the line: <weightUnits=kgs> without the brackets, and SAVE. Job done! It's been on the QW 787 Support website for a liitle while now ......... 😋 PS: You will need to do this before loading P3Dv4
  14. Just used the internal Prepar3Dv4.5 <Flight Planner> and checked out the Flight Log. Noticed that all distances are in kilometres - why? In my settings I have the hybrid system checked, so - feet, hectopascals (mllibars). There are a few countries that use metres, Russia springs to mind. So why are (kilo)metres used in the Lockheed Martin product? Perhaps a hangover from FSX (but that,too, is an American product). The real question for me, is there a way to edit the Flight Log distances to reproduce in nautical miles, the most used navigation distance scale? I can't find a specific settings section for Flight Planner anywhere,but experience tells me I have probably missed it.
  15. I too am very interested in applying this mod to my PA31 Navajo. As an ex Navajo pilot (circa 1976/1980) I would like 'my' aircraft to be as close to real as I can make it. As above, please PM me if you have a copy and i will reply with e-mail etc. Thanks for all help received, John PS Stewart - were you successful?
