  1. Working with Sean per his avsim post (and a few other customers) towards a native installer for P3D v4. In mine I've also added Reality XP GTN 750's here, and I've got a small mod to get some VC buttons working (mainly direct to and home on #1) - that's all anyone should really need. Here's just a few pics. This allows use of the GUI config app from realair (so we don't have to do txt edits to change options) and includes the dawson x64 sound gauge so all sounds work.

  2. A few weeks ago I purchased PMDG's 777 base package (version 1.10.8414), and installed it on P3D V4. I used OpCenter to get a couple of liveries and logged about 30 hours of flight time in my new aircraft--no problems encountered anywhere. I just reformatted the drives on my flying computer and loaded Win10-64 and loaded P3D V4.1 (version I then logged into my account at PMDG and downloaded the latest 777 base package (version 1.10.8448). It seemed to install without any problems. I can load (but haven't actually flown) the 777. However, OpsCenter (or PMDG) does not show up in the start menu. I can go to the PMDG Operations Center directory and launch OpsCenterUpdater as administrator, but it runs for about 5-10 seconds (it is launching on an SSD) and then dies--no error messages or any other warning. I tried looking in \AppData\Roaming ... for a log file, but the only PMDG-related folder there is RAASPRO. I uninstalled the PMDG 777-200LRF Base Package P3D (the only PMDG listing in the Uninstall Programs listing in the Control Panel) and tried again--always being sure to run the installation package, P3D and OpsCenter as administrator. I also turned off Windows Defender and Windows Firewall (there is no other security software on this box) while trying to run OpsCenter, with the same results as described above. Any ideas?

  3. East of Phoenix...or should I say, "Painted Desert." I am using BlueSky scenery, P3dV4 and URP v1.1 for P3D v4(coloring/saturation) I appreciate you looking at this pictorial, please feel free to comment...Darryl
  4. My windows got updated yesterday. I noticed that windows wanted me to update when I shut it down last night. Today I notice several irregularities: - My Majestic dash 8 isn't starting in a cold and dark config. Instead it starts on battery, and none of the switches do anything except move from one position to another when I manipulate them. FMC dont come on, and the radio stacks dont turn on. Turning the battery off doesnt do anything. Restarting the sim doesnt help. - Prepar3d v4.1 just hangs when I shut it down. It's window dissapear, but its on the taskbar showing as active. It's been 5 minutes now, and it still hasnt gone away. - My windows task bar shows up in the top of the screen instead of the bottom where I want it when I first boot up the system. I get alot of app crash messages when initially coming into the desktop. Subsequent startups during the day leaves the taskbar in its normal position in the bottom, and I get no app crash messages. I am using Nvidia surround on 3 screens btw. GFX driver is updated along with geforce experience. These are just three of the most glaring issues I had because of this update. Anyone else noticing any not normal things with their pc/sims?
  5. Upon landing in this bird I basically don't have any rudder authority, even on final actually, with AP off. Anyone else notice this? It's like a bug where this is a hidden YD engaged (which usually happens in their larger planes, but you can disengage the YD with a button). There is no button YD on the AP in the mooney.
  6. Hello all, i am experiencing issues with chaseplane and P3D v4 as there are instances I change cameras and P3D stops responding. Just thought I'd give this info while chaseplane is still in alpha for v4. Any ideas?
  7. When installing from VFX Central get the following error: Installation Error: System.InvalidOperationException: Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute. at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowInvalidOperationException(ExceptionResource resource) at System.Collections.Generic.List`1.Enumerator.MoveNextRare() at System.Collections.Generic.List`1.Enumerator.MoveNext() at A.c.A(Boolean ) at VFXCentral.MainWindow.A(Object , DoWorkEventArgs ) at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.OnDoWork(DoWorkEventArgs e) at System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker.WorkerThreadStart(Object argument) Install failed
  8. One of my favorite airports has been updated to p3d v4. This is one I do not mind paying for the upgrade price. The next one I'm looking forward to is LGSK and that's coming soon.
  9. NA Southern Alaska, Sky textures is "AUTUMN", PTA preset is "AUTUMN". Plane is free North American T-28 Trojan.
  10. I've seen this issue on a few of my addons now. Has anyone else seen this? Some parts of the aircraft are lit and some are in shadow? Also there are weird ellipses in spots of shadow and light. I have acft shadows on high but HDR off. p3dv4_shadowartifacts by ryan b, on Flickr
  11. I'm in France Again, I Don't Know Where...Oh yes it's Aix-les-Bains(LFLB) this time. The city of Aix-les-Bains(departure location) raises from the shores of the largest glacial (non man-made) lake in France, the Lac du Bourget. I appreciate you looking at this pictorial, please feel free to comment if you wish...Darryl
  12. With the recent release of the FSLabs A320 for P3D V4, FSLabs are now setting the standard for realism within the flight simulation platform. From using more realistic flight dynamics and flight model to using custom sounds that change depending on the area of the aircraft you are in. Will PMDG be implementing any of these features and attempt to reset the standard, atleast for Boeing/non Airbus aircraft?
  13. Has anyone had any luck flying the Cera UH-60L in P3D v4 ? I was just spinning continuously to the right and not being able to gain altitude above 5 feet. Thanks Michael
  14. I have been using P3D V4.1 exclusively but it gives me CTD for unknown reason, no error message, no windows event was recorded (in most of the cases), that was with default airplanes and third party as well, had same issue with P3D V4. I searched the internet for a solution and read somewhere that memory mode XMP could cause such a problem, went to my BIOS and switched memory mode from XMP to (AUTO). I have tested P3D for a week now with all scenarios that I used to fly (had to be long time flight, not less than 2 to 3 hours in general, or let us say P3D had to be running for long time, with some take offs and landings) and everything seems to be working just fine. Noticed two things though and I think it’s a normal; 1- There is a new spar short stutters. 2- Lost couple of FPS with memory in AUTO mode. Now, is it a memory module defects or P3D coding optimization problem? I really can’t say since I don’t have another memory module to try out, therefore I will leave it for someone else to determine that if they have same issue and extra memory module to swap for trouble shooting. I wrote this post trying to help folks like me with same issue, and to extend my thanks to the unknown (at least to me) original guy who brought this fix to the community. happy flying.
  15. Hi, today i installed the Update for the A320X (P3D v4.1) and unfortunately Linda doesn't seem to work with the new version. I installed the latest profile and Linda seems to find it (Its preselected in the dropdown near the sync button) but the connection to the aircraft doesn't seem to work (Linda recognizes my buttons and switches but nothing happens in the aircraft). I also recognized that my VRInsight Combo says "Linda Init... FSX Default" instead of the actual name of the aircraft. I'm using the Hotas Warthog + Throttle and the VRInsight Boeing Combo II (None of the devices are working). FSUIPC is updated. It worked perfectly in P3D v3 and it also works with the PMDG 737 in 4.1. Are you aware of the issue or have an idea? Thanks in advance and best regards Florian
  16. Leaving Redding, CA in the Mooney Ovation I headed south towards Charles Schulz Sonoma County. I planned on 7500' cruise but the weather was broken to overcast leaving Redding. I stayed low and once the clouds broke up I climbed to 9500 with a pretty decent ground speed averaging 180 kts. I used the Reality XP GTN 750 with some personal mods I've been working on (they don't work 100% yet but they work pretty well for me). The clouds and skies are default with some tiny HDR post tweaks. Approaching STS I had to divert more south easterly to avoid low hanging clouds over the mountain range. Around the eastern tip of Clear Lake I turned back SW, past Mt St Helena, and then a left base for Ry 14 STS. On the last cockpit shot you can see the RXP GTN is setup to provide a psuedo lateral and vertical path for a visual approach Ry 14 - kinda neat! Anyway hope everyone likes them...

  19. Hi all, I'm not trying to restart the debate abut DL frames rates and who has the highest Fps but I need help setting the sim so it acceptable to fly at night :) What I am trying is to understand from other users with a similar setup (4K especially), if any managed to use the sim without resorting not switching on lights during the nigh, fly only during the day or disable DL. My setup is i5 6600K 4.5Ghz, GTX980Ti, 16GB DDR4 and 44in 4K monitor. After several test and been told that I have to lower my already low resolution is starting to cause frustration and anger. From all the posts about the subject it appears and my own tests confirm, if you use a 1080 resolution you should be ok with DL. The fps impact isn't as significant as if you set it up to 4K. During the day the resolution is 60Fps+(about 40 at FBeam KSFO HD) and about 35Fps at night at a busy airport with the dynamic lights off, becoming 15-10Fps with the lights on. Its is becoming clear that people in the same situation are been accused of having cracking up the settings. Can anyone help, since I could not get it sorted when opened (still open) a support ticket? Regards Eduardo Teixeira
  20. Hello, Thanks for your tool. Is it possible to change the colors ? Exemple "my aircraft" to red? Thanks in advance
  21. Hello everybody, is there anybody oustside who developes a new module for the new Airbus from FS Labs? Cheers Charly
  22. In P3D V4, I've uninstalled my previous versions of Barcelona by Justsim and Latin VFR, in anticipation of adding the new Aerosoft Mega Barcelona. In checking the default Barcelona, the airport is clean except for some left over extraneous gates. For the life of me I cannot find what file is causing those random gates to appear. I've checked the SODE directory and removed any traces of LEBL there and all other likely places like the world-scenery directory and the P3 V4 addons directory.There might be a leftover AFCAD somewhere, but I can't find it. It probably has an odd name. Also, I do not use MyTraffic. I would be very appreciative if anyone has a suggestion?
  23. Hello everyone After the last update of PMDG NGX 1.20.8413 the 737 IMMERSION does not work anymore. I downloaded the VFXCentral again. Uninstalled and re-installed. But the effects do not appear. Do I need help? P3D V4
  24. A Maryland Diamond...the U.S. East Coast this time. Thanks for looking, please feel free to comment...Darryl
  25. Does anyone know of an AI BAe 146 and/or an AI RJ85, that works in P3D, preferably P3D v4 ? Thanks Michael
