  1. Avoiding starting engines

    So recently i downloaded some aircraft that require you to start the engines. I find this extremely annoying. Is there something i could change, maybe a code, that will make the engines startup on loading? Arjun
  2. Is there a way of getting Vox ATC to launch automatically instead of having to start it from the panels? (Very annoying if your aircraft has more than 9 panels!) Especially interested if you can set up simstarter as an option to lauch voxatc automatically or not launch it! (You might want to do some FSX gliding so start your engine and taxying is tricky!) Rob

  4. The Issue: You double-click on Prepar3D V4, the splash screen comes up and then within just seconds, the Prepar3D window completely disappears. And you may also have noticed that Prepar3D.exe is still listed as a process within Task Manager. Does this issue sound familiar to you? I recently experienced the above issue with Prepar3D and spent endless time searching through numerous forums, as well as YouTube videos. At the point I was about to give up and completely reinstall Prepar3D, I finally managed to resolve the problem. I hope the following solution helps some of you fellow simmers in need of a fix. The Solution: First things first, a couple of questions to ask yourself: 1.) Have you recently installed any add-on aircraft or scenery? - It is possible that an add-on has caused conflict with the Sim and it may be worth reinstalling that add-on. 2.) Have you checked your Event Viewer logs? - It may very well be worth checking the event logs to identify what might be causing the Sim to crash. Assuming you have checked the above, let's proceed with the solution: Firstly, please ensure that Prepar3d.exe is no longer running in the background by doing the following: Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE on your keyboard Click on Task Manager Scroll down until you see Prepar3D exe, right-click on the process and select End Task Secondly, do the following: Click on the Start button Type the following on your keyboard: run When the Run window pops up, type the following: %appdata% Press Enter/Return on your keyboard Open the Lockheed Martin folder Delete the Prepar3D v4 folder, or alternatively Cut & Paste the folder to another location Just to reassure you, these files will be regenerated shortly. Now for the next step: Click on the Start button Type the following on your keyboard: run When the Run window pops up, type the following: %programdata% Press Enter/Return on your keyboard Open the Lockheed Martin folder Delete the Prepar3D v4 folder, or alternatively Cut & Paste the folder to another location. And that's it. Please feel free to go ahead and open Prepar3D. Please note that it will take a little longer than normal to regenerate the scenery indexes and other files. Then with a bit of luck, it should open as normal! Please feel free to send me your comments, questions and any feedback. I would love to hear if this has worked for you. Andrus7789 Andrew Russell

Press the lower EICAS control panel ENG button to select the secondary Engine display on the lower EICAS. We need this to see the N2 values during the start. 20. Pull the black cylindrical overhead Start switches for both Engines 3 and 4. White lights illuminate at the ends of the switches to indicate the start process is in progress. 21. Pan down to the pedestal and lower EICAS. Turn the Engines 3 and 4 fuel control levers to RUN with a left click once N2 has reached 25%. 20. The engines will accelerate and stabilize.

Set the Transponder to TA/RA if at an ASDE equipped airport Run the BEFORE TAXI checklist from the QRH PROPER TAKEOFF PROCEDURE 1. Advance the Throttles to approximately 50% N1 2. Press TO/GA don’t use the MCP A/T button, it takes half a second or so to "capture 3. If TO/GA is not selected prior to 50 knots, AT operation will be inhibited until 400 feet. In this case, the throttles will only move manually until that point 4. Wait until you see THR REF annunciated on the FMA 5. Push the Throttles fully forward. They are dead now because the AT is active THINGS THE WIDE BETA TEAM WANTED YOU TO KNOW At high gross weights – particularly those at “hot and high” airports – be prepared for underwhelming performance. Take off rolls will be much longer, and the climb rate will be sluggish, particularly at acceleration altitude when retracting the flaps. When planning, normal remaining fuel values are much higher than you are used to. A good minimum is at least 30,000 pounds. If TO/GA is not selected prior to 50 knots, AT operation will be inhibited until 400 feet. In this case, the throttles will only move manually until that point. When soft disconnecting the AT, the disconnect switches need to be clicked twice with a 1-2 second pause in between to avoid the auto throttle disconnect EICAS message and associated caution. The APU will run while airborne, but it will not start unless the aircraft is on the ground. There is enough redundancy on the aircraft that its use while airborne is not required. Unlike the 777, the transfer of power between the engine generators and the APU is manual. Remember to reach up and transfer the power source from the engines to the APU prior to cutting fuel to the engines. Pilots of the NGX will likely be less prone to forgetting this step. Don't forget to press the MIC button on the ACP panel (below the radios panel) corresponding to the radio you want to transmit on or no-one will hear you online. Yes, it’s modeled that closely! There are certain calculations that you perform through the CDU that take a surprising amount of time to complete. A good example is the required trim setting generated by entering the %MAC. Keep in mind that the processing power in this FMC is equivalent to the old Intel 8086 processor. The FMC has been purposefully designed to have the same response times as the real FMC. GSX will interfere with the PMDG Ground Service vehicles. If you use GSX for parking, be sure to restart couatl before selecting service vehicles. When taxiing, keep speeds in turns at 12 knots or less to ensure that the body gear steering is active to assist the turn. Have a good flight and always a also always good landing Manfred Maier
  7. Having FSX issues ever since I made the switch to Windows 10. Tried deleting my current CFG., no difference. I have the UIautomation core so that crash isn't the issue. Can't seem to figure out this problem but defiantly the fault of Windows 10. Really frustrating can't access FSrecorder due to this. It has no loading status bar and I cannot use the tool bar on circumstances without a black screen. Could really use some help.
  8. Just purchased the Flysimware Learjet 35A, Version 1.8, from FSPilotShop (exactly one day before their sale!!!), and am initially impressed with the quality of the graphics, cockpit sounds, clicks, bells and whistles. However, I am unable to start the blasted thing! Following the checklist for a cold and dark start is a no-op - while everything clicks on, the start sequence is non-operational. Even doing a CTRL+E start fails - the turbine spools up to 18.1 on the left engine only, and then shuts off to slowly return to zero. It does not even try to start the right engine. I am running P3D V3, which is a supported platform. Any ideas? I checked the Flysimware site and there are no references to starting problems.
  9. The Battery Switches shown on the "Lateral Switches" panel will not operate via a keyboard shortcut or externally assigned switch. They will only function when clicked by the mouse. The FSUIPC Console window shows multiple instances of the command sent with random parameters attached when the switch or assigned key is operated. When clicked on by the mouse it shows only the one instance. A keyboard shortcut or externally assigned switch works fine on the Phenom 100.
  10. Hello I've got the problem where fsx will start up and freeze on the splash screen. Weirdly i get the music running but nothing happens it eventually ends up not responding. I've done the usual fixes i.e. delete the logbook, delete cfg file etc. My specs: Intel Core i5 4960K 8gb RAM GTX970. fsx deluxe I've made no change to my pc recently. Played fsx last night. As soon as i'd finished and it was all closed off shut the pc down. Came to my pc today. First thing i did was load up fsx and got this error. Cheers Nick
