  1. I am wondering if there's a capability in SIMStarter to run a task after the sim is closed (shutdown). utLive2 always place the add-on.xml in the P3D5 Addons folder and I have separate folder for addons, this creates a conflict and P3D confuses utlive2 as a new addon. So I have to always delete the folder from P3D5 Addons folder as utlive2 recreates it each time the sim starts. I want to have a delete folder task after the sim closes, is there such a function in SIMStarter? Thanks Mustafa
  2. Hi all; For all VFR two engine prop fans out there, if you are interested in having Microsoft add a steam gauge variant of the Baron 58 on the new MSFS, please vote on the MSFS forum linked below. The vote button is a blue button on the top left side of the thread. https://forums.flightsimulator…-with-steam-gauges/273317 Happy VFR flying...
  3. Hi there; I'm late to the game, but I would love to have a copy myself, can I have a copy please? mustafahajjar@hotmail.com
  4. Thanks w6kd, yes I am using v5.1. I saw the post and I will give it a try.
  5. I'm having the same issue, where you able to solve your problem Skysurfer?
  6. Whenever I try to add the arrival runway fix in the 747-400 FMC, I get a "NOT IN DATA BASE" msg. I am picking the arrival runway from the legs page but that is not helping. I researched a bunch and tried the following with no use: 1- Deleted the ARPT_RWY.dat from the PMDG, then ran MakeRunways (admin) and PMDG recreated a new one fine. The file has the arrival runway in reference (OEJN) but still the problem persisted in the 744 FMC. 2- I tried entering the same plan in the FMC of the 748F and there was no problem, the FMC of the -8 accepted the arrival runway fine copying from the LEGS to the FIX page. So makes me think the problem is specific to the 744. 3- I tired updating the P3D from WorldNavAids but that didn't help. 4- I ran Navigraph FMS Data Manager again and verified the airports.dat file is the latest in PMDG\NavData is from the latest AIRAC, still no use! What am I missing here? Thanks, Mustafa
  7. Just installed the Navigraph expansion but after powering on the batteries the MFD is struck on the intro screen and showing the AIRAC out of date (Exp Mar 30 2016) although the db file in the CarinadoNavigraph folder is up-to-date after updating nav data with Navigraph FMS Manager. I clicked on ENT as specified but the map only flashes and I'm back to the Intro screen. Any ideas why this is happening? Runnnig P3D V4.5 Hotfix 3, and here's how my dll.xml looks like: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>SPAD.neXt LVAR Bridge</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>Modules\spdbridge64.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>CMeteoXml</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>.\CMeteoXml.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 5</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Modules\FSUIPC5.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Navigraph Simlink</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>Gauges\NavigraphSimlink.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>IVAO Pilot Client</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Flight Simulation\Tools\IVAO\Pilot\PilotCore\pilot_core_fsxp3d_x64.dll</Path> <Commandline /> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Carenavigraph</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>.\Carenavigraph.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_connect</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_connect_64.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> Thanks, Mustafa
  8. I had the Baron copied over from FSX to P3D back when I migrated to P3D 4.1 and it has been working fine for the longest time, even after the upgrades to current P3D 4.5. Just recently some controls stopped working, primarily engine 1 throttle. I am not sure what I installed since it stopped working, but it was working fine few months ago in P3D 4.5. I have a bunch of airport add-ons, ChasePlane, PMDG NGXu and others, and FSUIPC5. P3D controls disabled, and I doubled checked FSUIPC5 conflicting control inputs and they are none, I even took out the default no-profile assigned control mappings but the problem persists. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mustafa
  9. Does anyone know of an online service that gives real-world information about where airlines are designated to park in commercial airports? Part of my flight planning, I would like to know where I'm likely to be assigned a gate at the different airports I fly to. SIMStarter NG helps on some airports, but it would be great if there's an online service like FlightRadar24; I checked there already but the info is not there. It doesn't have to be the exact airline I'm flying but something similar, like international vs domestic terminals and gates. Thanks, Mustafa
  10. Same here, although I'm running SOP1. I made sure SPKR is on FLT before connecting and said the "cockpit to ground" key phrase. I can see the exact phrase in text on the simconnect green message text but nothing happens. It was working fine on the NGX FS2Crew version. I am having the same problem with the "Set course on your side xxx" phrase as well... no response! Mustafa
  11. I figured it out. It was my Pimax 5K+ VR headset terrible software (PiTool) that was sucking all the FPS and somehow draining every last bit of core 0 processing power. After fiddling with it for hours at end and changing to all sorts of versions, I gave up and went back to my Samsung Odyssey+ headset, lesser FOV but decent enough. I immediately went from 14 FPS at FlightBeam's Dulles KIAD on the Pimax to 28 FPS on the old Samsung headset, what a waste of time and money. I'm a happier camper now :) I really hope MSFS 2020 will have better FPS when running on all cores, and I hope they release it VR ready. Thanks all... Mustafa
  12. Suffering from very low FPS (29-32 FPS and 10-15 FPS in VR) regardless of the scenery payware. I have an x8086 OC @5.2GHz, a 1080Ti OC edition @2025MHz, PiMax 5K+ headset. Running P3D v4.5 in mid to high settings (2048/x16/4SSAA). Both CPU and GPU are in the 50s% and temps are around 50-60C too. I just updated my Nvida driver to 441 and still, the problem persists. I am not CPU, GPU, or Monitor bound and Task Manager > Performance tab and HWMonitor are showing everything at or well below 50% utilized across the board!!! Thanks, Mustafa
  13. I've been fiddling with the tool and it is awesome. I've created many areas that are looking absolutely great. Two wish-list items that would be great to have: 1- Scenery Autogen 2- Better compression Also, for some reason, I am not able to create mix zoom level bgls in a tile. I am using the Zoom window and adding mixed zl16,17,18, and 19. However, only bgls matching the base zl (16 in my case) are being created, although I do see BMPs and INFs being downloaded and created in their respective folders (BI_17, BI_18, B_19), there's only one ADDONS SCENERY folder for BI_16 that gets created with *_BI16.BGL files only, the other zl folders have no ADDONS SCENERY folder in them. Thanks again for doing the conversion to P3D... great work Mustafa
  14. Hi there; I hope this topic is not dead... I just got my second Saitek throttle quadrant and I am programming separate eng1 & 2 throttle/reversers. I followed the same instructions as in the youtube video on reverse thrust full/cut but for some reason I only get the effect of initial reverse (as if the I pressed F2 once) although I have checked the "Control to repeat while held" checkbox. Everything works great expect the reverse doesn't go to full. The Saitek throttle detent is a toggle button so you can't keep pressing it such as an F2 key, it is either toggled on or off. I'm not sure how it's working in the youtube video but it's not working for me. I am trying to apply this to my PMDG 737NGX profile in FSUIPC (FSX). Thanks, Mustafa
