  1. Hello! I have always been using my old xbox 360 controller for my camera since i purchased chaseplane, and it has ever since worked completely fine. Although quite recently I started to notice that it had begun to do the opposite. I was on the experimental version since the non experimental isnt fully compatible with 4.2 as far as I know, there was some kind of an update done to the experimental version which made it so whenever i changed view with the controller, the angle would be 100% correct but it would zoom out as far as possible, so everytime i change views i have to reset it back to how its meant to be. And not only that, when scrolling through the views it won't scroll from top to bottom, it will instead do something like view 8, to 5, to 7, to 3 etc. Sometimes I'll have to press the change view button twice since it will just change it from view 8, to view 8. The controller itself works completely fine with other games, and it also works fine on the non experimental version. There it works as intended, although as I said before, the zoom is janky since it isn't compatible for v4.2. I have tried some minor stuff like switching from non experimental to experimental, running VFX central. I have no clue how to approach this issue and I'm therefore here asking for help. Cheers!
  2. Hi all, We recently just made v2.61 of PTA available for users that have upgraded to Prepar3D v4.2. You can find the download via your order page on the SimTweaks website. Please note: Due to shader structure change within Prepar3D v4.2, some of the tweaks in PTA v2.61 will NOT work in previous versions of Prepar3D. If you are not planning on upgrading from Prepar3D v4.1, you do NOT need to upgrade PTA. There isn't any new functionality in PTA v2.61, just compatibility with Prepar3D v4.2. Thanks, Matt.

    I like this plane so far though I am still newbie of it. I have flown Boeings and Airbuses. Now I have a question. How do I make Autoland work?? I have chosen "ILS" to capture LOC and G/S then I press "Autoland". However, it always showed "No autoland" Is there any condition before I make Autoland work? Thanks!
  4. Hi! I am using P3D v4.2. This issue has bothered me for a while after updating to v4.2, and it has never happened before. After I start P3D, I always encounter an issue and it only happens in the first flight and first move. That is, if I push the throttle or touch any "axis" on that hardware( ThrustMaster TWCS), the fuel flow (lever) will be cut down to zero so the engine was out. It happens to default plane and other add-on planes, too. However, if I start it again or start another flight, this would not happen again. It only happens at the first flight everytime I start P3D. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Client, FSUIPC(unregistered version, 5.122) and my TWCS driver. Nothing worked! It is quite annoying. Any idea what's going on? Thanks!
  5. Hi! I finally solved the issue of FMS. However, there is another issue. When I line up the rwy ready for take off, the windshield became so bright or blooming~ (can barely open my eyes~ haha) What is the issue or have I done something wrong?

  7. I can’t for the life of me figure out what is going on with VOX and the ATIS weather. Every time I tune to an ATIS whether for departure or on approach, it always gives the same weather. Winds are always calm and most of the time it is using the wrong runways. The weird thing is when tuning the ATIS for departure, the green bar readout at the top is correct, but the voice is not reading that METAR. It usually has the correct ALSTG or within .01”, but VIS is always 62NM (not sure why), no clouds, and winds calm. Anyway else have this issue? I am running 4.2, AS, REX SF for weather add-ons. Has anyone else run into this issue for weather? I’m getting to the point where I know this software isn’t for me much longer because of the issues, but enjoy the ability to practice the verbal comms.

    Latin VFR KMIA P3Dv4.2

    This scenery has been working well but suddenly and for some unknown reason some of the terminal buildings are missing. I've removed it and reinstalled it and used the xml method and also tried by adding the scenery to the scenery.cfg, in either case buildings, etc missing. The executables are LatinVFR_KMIA_P3Dv4_4.1.exe and LatinVFR_KMIA_P3Dv4_4.1patch.exe, installation with or without the patch still give same results. Have tried to post on their forum after login but apparently I'm not allowed to post. A bit weird. Would welcome some feedback from anyone who has experienced this issue and has managed to fix it. thanks
  9. Hi! Today when I tried to start Engine No.1 (left side), it could not start. However, the right one(No.2) was normally started. I have done all the starting procedure as usual. Is there anything I missed? Thanks!

    P3D v4.2 low fps

    I'm not sure if this should be posted here or not, but I'm running P3D v4.2 with the GTX 1070 and i7-8700, and when I load the PMDG 737 NGX, my frames drop to 10 to 15, even without autogen and with medium scenery complexity. I thought the GTX 1070 and i7-8700 should easily handle P3D and PMDG at 30 fps or more, why is this happening to me? I have no other programs running in the background, and am using default textures and airports.
  11. I can't believe I waited a few days to add this amazing airplane to my hangar. I love it! Arrival at KMIA with DL enabled: Jose
  12. Does anyone know where I can download Cumulus X? Thanks
  13. Hi! I have just upgraded to v4.2 with Client, Content and Scenery installation. The process was rather smooth. However, I found that whenever I start the first flight with either default or addon aircraft, some issue occurred. That is, if I push the thrust from idle position ( default F22 or PMDG 777/747), there was electric shut down causing engine shut down( F22) or transient electric failure which returned back to normal later by itself. (PMDG 777/747) However, if I start a second flight or plane, everything was normal. Any fix or reason? Thanks!
  14. A Little Traffic & Other Things..... I appreciate you looking at this pictorial, please feel free to comment...
  15. Hello I updated to P3D v4.2 from v4.1 as well as update the PMDG 747-400 from Control Center Flying is fine except during descent I get wailing sound "overspeed" and displayed on EICAS. The problem is I would be at 250, 200, 190, 180 with the correct flap positions when the overspeed comes up. Even with deploying drag. Did anybody experience the same problem. Bill
