  1. Cloud shadows disappear when i zoom in on a view! P3D V4,3 Anyone have similar problem and has fixed i would appreciate a solution! Thanks!
  2. Hello, some days ago I installed all PMDG v4 aircrafts new on my laptop. Scince this, the sim doesn't start anymore... It shows the main picture of P3D but when it tries to open the main menu, the picture is gone and there is nothing. The Task Manager tells me, the sim, SODE and courtal are running but it isn't shown in the Task Line too! I've reinstalled PMDG and AS16, I've even already reinstalled my P3D and the same problem... Under troubleshooting it shows me "Failed to connect". Please help me! Win 10 i7-5700HQ SSD128G GTX970
  3. Hello Avsim, I got a prompt to update PTA to the new 2.62 version this afternoon to work with my recently updated P3D and stupidly I clicked no without reading (force of habit i guess.) The only problem is after many restarts i cannot seem to trigger the prompt again and the option to restore original P3D shaders is greyed out so an uninstall of the product would be a headache for my entire simulator and it would mess my default shaders up. Please Help... Thanks, Cyaniide
  4. So, i have this problem where the gear sometimes does not want to retract, the gear lever goes up but the gear stays down and the MFD display still says 3 down green. I have no idea what would be causing the problem, the issue seems occur randomly. Both the gear button on my HOTAS and clicking the lever do nothing. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks.
  5. When I try to install FSX steam edition/default they both failed to install due to some type of error. I tried to install the steam edition, but it says that I need steam running, THEN I tried to install the standard It too has problems, this time when I inserted disc 1 this time with some red x error. Can anyone help me?☹️ I'm frustrated that my windows 7 computer keeps acting up and newer versions of windows are not the same.😡 I wish that Microsoft will continue releasing more flight simulators but instead, we were stuck with acceleration for 11 years now since they don't have new versions of flight simulator anymore and they are not compatible on any new version of windows (8, 10 etc.). 🙄

    FMC Freezes when i try to enter Cost Index

    Well,I use PMDG 777-300ER and everything was fine yesterday. I made a flight from LTBA to KJFK without any issues. Today, when i try to enter the cost index to FMC for another flight, FMC just freezed. I closed and restarted the game and tried to request that informations instead of entering manually. This time, when i clicked accept button, all entries became invisible. They just turned to blanks. I couldn't see any indent for any attribute. I even tried my last flight which i flied yesterday and all that FMC things were operating as normal, i get the freezing problem. Btw, all VC works without a problem, only FMC freezes. I also tried to delete the aircraft and reinstalled it. Nothing has changed. I amthinking of deleting the whole game and reinstall it again tho. If it wont help, then i will be done and not waste any more time on this.
  7. Hi all, so had my P3Dv4 up and running for about 2 weeks, done various flights in and out of the U.K. and I’m stubbling across this problem: all my uk2000 sceneries on my return legs have this pink colour on the airport buildings aswell as the aircraft I Only use my FSLabs a320 (that is the only addon AC I have) and only during day time hours (doesn’t happen at night). I have pictures but for some reason can’t attach 😞 Im running PTA with Matt Davies 1.3 setup the Steps I’ve aready taken is deleting the shaders folder and re-installing original P3D config then reloading Matt Davies setup on P3D. (Maybe that’s the problem I don’t know) pc spec: i7 8700k, gtx1080 16gb ram 3000mhz (custom built wired 2 fire)

    PMDG 777 constantly losing fuel

    Hey guys! I've been having a very annoying issue with my PMDG 777 lately. On all my last 5 long haul flights, I am experiencing a constant and slow reduction of my fuel remaining at my destination. I am planning all my flights with real time weather in PFPX and activesky. By comparing the estimated wind forecast in the OFP and the actual wind in the sim, I can tell that they match very closely. I already read this: and changed the battery of my motherboard. - doesn't help. I have around 2000 hours in the sim with the PMDG 777 and never had this issue before. Does anybody have an idea about what's going on? Please help me I don't how to continue.

  10. Hello avsim community :-) At first I’m new to this forum and english is not my native language. So please show mercy. :-) I have a problem with my fresh installed FSX, the Carenado Phenom 300, and the Carenado Synthetic Vision System. (these are the only DLC I have currently installed) When I load my flight I’m keep receiving an TER ERR message in my Garmin PFD. I read the SVS manual trouble shooting page and it says that when I receive this ERR, then the SVS is not installed or wongly configured and that I have to contact their support (which I did but haven’t got an answer yet). Firewall also allow the data traffic and the anti virus was disabled when I tried everything And as I said, I made a clean install of everything and also every drivers are up to date. Im running out of ideas on what could cause the problem. :-( Any ideas? It would make me happy :-) Specs: WIN 10 64Bit, GTX 980TI, I7 4790k, 16gb RAM, FSX SE

    White & Black flicker.

    Hello, Yesterday i had reinstalled Windows 10 as i kept blue screening. I had install P3D V4 and before i had launched the sim i had only installed SimConnect. I had gone into the sim and spawned myself at EGCC and left everything default. i had used my hatswitch to move around and there was alot of white flickers everytime i had moved around. I tested at night aswell and the same thing had happen but it was in black. I had then started going through all my settings disabling everything and found out it was HDR that was doing it. I had thought shaders were broken at firstso i had reinstalled the P3D Client. Same thing was happening so i had installed PTA and installed a preset from online but nothing seemed to make it work. BEFORE: (normal) http://prntscr.com/j3qp6f AFTER: (Flashes) http://prntscr.com/j3qpgu This is P3D Running with nothing installed. (Had PTA installed but uninstalled for time being) Thanks
  12. Hello, I recentley upgraded to P3D V4.2, am having some problems though. My textures seem to not load.

I have deleted the shaders folder but that seeme'd to mess it up so i recoverd it from the recycle bin. I have also deleted the P3D.CFG But still.

    Looking for admin!

    Hi there, I have just set up a new VA called Rikzo Virtual, a classic low cost European airline operating out of smaller airports like London City. Its not ready yet, so I was looking for anyone wanting to become a staff member, or even just become a pilot and help out with the site and the VA, all help is appreciated. I don't mind who, any age or experience. Or if anyone just wants to offer any advice, I would be glad to hear. The website is rikzovirtual.com (obviously the website is very new and bad!) Thanks in advance, Charlie

    AMD Users

    Hi Guys, I need some help. I have an AMD Six Core & since i am really not that good with computing/math i was wondering if someone knows or can check for me what the Affinity Mask Setting Should Be for an AMD Six Core because i truthfully don't know. I know some users set theirs to 14 or 86 but beyond that i have no idea. Btw i don't have hyperthreading. Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Wayne George
  15. Hey so I decided to do some youtube videos with the amazing PMDG aircraft, the classic 737 ngx and the newer 747 v3, just wanted to ask your opinion and how I can improve on future videos and potential content? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8T0d_ZKQ7K0wyuSaa_WMEA Thanks, Will.
  16. Hi guys, I need your help, I want to upgrade my system, but I don't know what to do, I'm using an AMD Fx 4350 (which is really bad), but as you know this is so weak, it doesnt run FSX with a proper FPS,so I decided to upgrade, my budget isnt the best, so I wont buy an Intel core i7 4770k, I cant. I readed about intel processors are better (talking about fsx), but I've seens some videos, people using AMD Fx 8350, and FSX running good. So, my options are: 1) Intel Core i3 4150, It's obviously that I have to buy another board, and I don't know if it's gonna be problem, I dont know if I'm going to have some kind of problem with the two cores it has. 2) AMD Fx 9370, I dont have to buy another motherboard, and if FSX runs good on Fx 8350, this should be better. So guys, help me please, do not tell me things like: ''oh no buy the i5-4670k, buy the i7 4790k'' because I dont really have the money. Regards.
  17. Hi there, I have bought the Captain Sim 777-it worked-and is- great. Until I tried to install liveries. I tried through ACE 777, and manual but they both came witht the same result. The livery would install, but there would be a blakc halo around the aircraft and the cockpit would be black. However the halo skipped out the cargo doors which were fine. I have tried multiple liveries including and EK 773 (I have the -300 expansion) and a nordwind 772 from avsim.ru. Any ideas? Thanks Harry Karmel
  18. Hey guys, like I said, I just got P3D V2. It looks nice but still feels like graphically, it's not amazing (but thats coming from an XP 10 user ). I tried to find a thread on how to configure Prepar3D for great visuals and performance, but can't find any. I have an i5 2500K OC 4.3ghz and a GTX680 2GB. I have NI inspector so i'm not sure whether i should use that or not, and also i'm using windows 8 so i'm not sure where i stand on the whole V-Sync subject, however, i turned it on, and noticed an FPS decrease. Any help would be appreciated!
  19. Hi! I've experienced some very wierd textures on FSX lately, they are blue and ugly and its mostly lakes that looks like that. Im using DX10 and REX.

  20. Okay so basically, in April this year I started playing VATSIM through FSINN and everything was smooth and I learnt so much and was really enjoying my flying and interacting with other pilots and atc. Right, so I uninstalled some PMDG and Airbus X aircraft and other addon software. Then, whenever I tried to load FSX up it would give me FSINN runtime errors, specifically runtime error 372. I stopped playing about three months ago and left it. About a week ago I opened FSX to try and enjoy a flight but the same errors still occurred. I uninstalled all my addons i.e aircraft, scenery etc. Then uninstalled FSINN and copilot. Tried reinstalling FSINN; still the same errors. Even though I get these errors I can go into free flight but I cannot connect to VATSIM. Then I uninstalled FSX. So I reinstalled FSX on my other hard drive. Tried to install FSINN and copilot again, the same errors. Here are the images of the errors that come up when I start FSX (as an admin). this one comes up an additional two times when I click ok. then this one. then this one then fsx loads up and this one comes up finally I would be eternally grateful if anybody could help me solve this. Also, whenever I reinstall FSINN, I do not get asked for my credentials or VATSIM credentials i.e callsign, vatsim login. Thanks!
  21. Hi, please help. I have changed all files to run as admin so is not that problem, but when i go into fsx and go to add ons menu, as soon as I click on squawk box fsx freezes. The sound of the engine running remains but is completely frozen. I ctrl, alt, del and task bar says fsx not responding. Any help please?
  22. So I am having a bit of a problem with ASN. When I first start up steam, it gives me the “xml issue” message telling me to delete/change my dll.xml file. When I fly the simulator and it loads up, I either get no message with no working ASN or I get the “ambient control issue” message. I tried verifying the files for FSX and also reinstalling ASN. Any help is appreciated.
  23. Hello everyone, So when I got back from work today I loaded up p3d as usual but when clicking on Select Aircraft both of my MOnitors temporarily went black, the kind of going black it does when you Install the Nvidia GeForce drivers (Mine are up to date). Then It let me select the plane altough the Box normally showing the Plane was black, so I selected and Airport and started my Flight. It was loading normally got to 100% and then just closed. I do not know why that is at all, P3D was woorkign absoloutely fine yesterday and I did not change anything since then. I have tried deleting the prepar3d.cfg which did not change anything and also changed the Add On folders name so it would create a new one also did not do anything. Do any of you have any ideas, System specs are below if needed, Intel I9-7900X Asus Prime X299 Deluxe motherboartd Asus ROG GTX 1080ti 32 GB Trident Z Ram 3200 Mhz
  24. I would like to ask you to help me. I have been trying to get x aviation for 2 months, so far not an answer. It is created every time support tickets but no one answers. The problem is with the ixeg 737 "all slots in use". X aviation has to reset it, but do not do it. Does somebody still have an idea. What I have done so far: Mail to support@x-aviation.com, order @ x-avi .... Support request on the website under the point orders which I made-> ticket created no answer Wirte to Cameron on http://forums.x-pilot.com/ Forum, no answer. Meanwhile I am blocked in the forum up to the 31.01.17. Something is completely wrong. i dont know what or why? The seller morten@ixeg.com has written me back, firstly he can do nothing, secondly he has heard I shared something illegally. Where and when and to whom, no idea. I never did. I just want to use my ixeg again! Maybe there is someone here who already had or a solution knows. Thanks you very much!

    CRJ P3D?

    Hello, I have been searching for a good CRJ addon for P3D, and my searching has come to no avail thus far. My first question I guess is, is there a way to get the default CRJ-700 from fsx into P3D without having fsx on your PC? I know there is a CRJ in P3D, yet it is only for AI purposes I guessed after I reviewed its .cfg files. My second question is more for aerosoft than the general public, and if you have any information it would be greatly appreciated (I've been waiting for this for 6 months now, LOL). When is/is the Aerosoft CRJ-700X ever going to get released? Also, is that aircraft even going to be compatible with P3D because the description on their website is slightly vague on the subject (when I say compatible I mean with P3D V2.X), and when I asked them directly they wouldn't answer the question saying it was still in "development" which gives me a little hope. Furthermore, I understand Aerosoft and DA have made a CRJ-700/900/1000 model, yet I haven't heard the best reviews on that aircraft, in fact I haven't heard any good reviews on the aircraft so I have chosen to not get that addon. If you have the CRJ from Aerosoft/DA and you like it; please tell me. Thank you all for considering my questions. The only reason I ask such menial questions, forgive me for doing so, is because I am relatively new to P3D, I am a rather young pilot, and the fact that I do not know personally, a single person who uses P3D. sincerely, Paul Robbins.
