  1. Good morning from Colorado: Like the rest of you, I was expecting to see an update today when I started MSFS 2020. The "Checking for Updates" screen did come on, then the program settled on the main screen (where we choose flights, or other tabs). That said... I searched further and went to the "Contact Manager" screen. The first entry at the top showed this: "Core Content... Mandatory Package... by Asobo Studio...Relaunch the game to update ... 79.80 GIB." There was nothing to click on in this section or on that screen to relaunch the game. So I went back to the main menu and clicked return to the desktop, which turns off the program. Next, I started up MSFS 2020 again (which is essentially "relaunching" it). What ended up happening is exactly what I've stated above. (back to the same verbiage in the Contact Manager.) I relaunched it one more time with the same result. I found myself in this loop with no obvious way to download this update? Did I do something wrong? Should the update automatically have started the first time I relaunched it? Confused.😕 Mike
  2. Glad to hear that you are getting pretty much of the real weather (minus the winds). I'll keep trying my "Real" weather as I fly around this part of Colorado and report back here IF (magically) it starts to mirror what I'm actually seeing outside. (hope so!) Mike
  3. Good morning from Colorado, Have tried (unsuccessfully) to get the expected results using real weather. In fact, yesterday we had some low overcast in the Ft Collins and Loveland areas and very high / gusty winds. That said, I loaded the C172 in a parking spot at KFNL (Northern Colorado Regional Airport) here in Loveland using real weather, at the current time. Once the sim loaded, there wasn't a cloud in the sky and the winds were less than 3 knots. In anyone having any luck getting real weather when using the "Real Weather" selection? Mike
  4. Hi everyone: 1) Would like to see option to change the spoken temperature in ATC comms from C to F. 2) Would like ability to choose a male pilot's voice for the ATC comms (you can obviously change the pilot's avatar but not the voice?) 3) Don't want to use the taxiing arrows when following ground's direction to parking all the time as you have to set it either on or off in the sim's control panel. Would like the option to use a "Progressive taxi" choice in the ATC menu which could be toggled on and off instead. 4) My monitor setup is 4 screens using Nvidia 2080 Super. These are configured in NV surround mode and all function together in a windows' expanded desktop so that when I'm not using MSFS 2020 I can move things anywhere in all 4 of them. When using FSX I had it set up to use the top three monitors in a "virtual cockpit" mode and could open smaller windows in the sim (like ATC, checklist, Garmin GPS, etc.) and then slide them down to the 4th monitor below. I was hoping to be able to do that in MSFS 2020, but can't. The top three monitors function as before, but after opening the map, ATC window, I can reposition them anywhere in the top 3 monitors but can't move them down below. Wondering if anyone else has figured out how to do this and/or whether Asobo/MS will allow this in future update? Mike
  5. Using the C172 steam gauge version. I can choose a direct to destination without a problem, but when I try to activate it by clicking the ENT button .... nothing happens! Anyone else having the same problem using that GPS? Mike
  6. Hope someone can show what mapping changes to do!
  7. Mike is back with you now. I went home and followed many of the suggestions / corrections that you kind folks came up to help me with my problems on the sim and here are the results: 1) I checked the mapping of all of the buttons and switches in my Honeycomb Yoke and everything looked normal (no "phantom" mapping). When I went back into the C172 and did a normal startup ... voila! (It started without any problem) Go figure! 2) Switched the ATC sounds from Azure to "off line" and I'm now hearing the pilot and ATC voices all the time (yay!). The pilots voice is female and I searched every menu I could think of to change it to a male voice but couldn't find anyway to do that. Any suggestions? 3) I was thinking about making the Orbx London scenery "inactive" as was suggested, but when I went into the settings for all of the scenery, the only option would have been to "delete" it (no option to inactivate it). So... I left it alone. 4) Still trying to get a better handle on the "Cameras" menus. Want to figure out how to do simple cockpit panning. Any thoughts on that? Again... thanks to all of you for your help so far...👍
  8. I had the same problem earlier today and the fix was "offline" as you said. I looked everywhere in all the menus to try to change the pilot voice to male but couldn't find anyway to do that. Did you figure out how to change it to a males voice? Mike
  9. Interesting... hopefully the Honeycomb people and/or the folks at Asobo / Microsoft will get those quirks worked out 😳
  10. I won't be able to try these fixes until later today since I'm not home at the moment. I'll report back here after I do to let you all know what did or didn't work. Mike
  11. Good question: When I turn the start key on the Honeywell yoke, the prop does spin and seems to start, so I advance the mixture to full. The prop never fully starts to spin to give me normal RPM and just dies. I've even tried the real world solution to a "flooded" engine by advancing the throttle to full and trying to start it that way. No joy!
  12. Yep that worked but I don't want to use a one button start (it isn't real that way)
  13. I'm also using that Honeycomb yoke. How did you "chase a phantom key mapping" to solve the same problem (I'm assuming that is has been solved)
