  1. Hello all, I would like to upgrade my Simulator with ChasePlane. Now I have a question about the product: When I buy now the Beta Version for $39, am I allowed to download the final Version 1 or need I to pay again $39 for the final Version 1? I hope someone can help me...
  2. Little Navmap update and bugfix Release Most important change are bugfixes regarding crashes with P3D v4 scenery data. Announcement on my page with all links. Direct download link Windows Direct download link macOS Direct download link Linux Notes The littlenavmap-nosimconnect.exe was dropped in Little Navmap version 1.4.4. You can use littlenavmap.exe on all computers now, no matter if SimConnect is installed or not. The map theme can change after the update in some cases. Simply change it back to your previous theme. The GUI style can change after the update in some cases. Go to the options dialog to revert back to the style you used before. Changelog from 1.4.3 to 1.4.4 Added light (Positron) and dark (Dark Matter) maps from CARTO. SimConnect is now detected and loaded dynamically. The file littlenavmap-nosimconnect.exe was removed since it is not needed anymore. littlenavmap.exe can now also be used on bare computers without SimConnect or flight simulator installation. Added notification message if SimConnect was not found in connect dialog. The file link in the information window is now removed if the file cannot be found. This happens on remote computers with copied databases. Added start positions to runway information. These are also available if the airport has no runways. Improved aircraft progress display and fixed multiple omissions. Fixed potential crashes when a style is unavailable. Half transparent aircraft icon fixed. Fixed problem with links in scenery database error dialog opening inline. Changed to Qt library 5.9. Note that the GTK style is not available anymore in Linux. P3D v4 runways, aprons and taxiways are now read correctly. This affects all BGL files that are created using the v4 SDK compiler. Fixed crash with P3D v4 BGL files and other crashes that appear after applying the P3D v4 hotfix 1 and loading the scenery library. Added support for P3D v4 add-on.xml packages. These are now read from subdirectories of C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Files\add-ons and C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons. Full changelog.
  3. Am I correct in thinking that the 777 will be updated for FSX soon after the issues with the 777-300 for P3D V4 are worked out? Thanks, Mike
  4. Hi all, I've just pushed the latest version of PTA (v2.51). To update, visit the "My Account" section on the SimTweaks website, view your PTA order and download it from there. To install, just overwrite the .exe that's supplied with the updated zip file directly over your current PTA install. I've also included my own preset for those of you who are looking for something to get you started (I think it's pretty sweet, but then apparently I have a huge ego, so take what you will from that :D). v2.51 Changes - Improved activation logic - The "Clouds shadows tweak" is back. Due to changes in the Prepar3D v4 shaders code, this tweak has had to be rewritten with NEW parameters and ranges. Check the help pane for the new possible values. - New post-processing shader "Technicolor2" added adapted from Reshade 3 to P3D the rendering engine. - New post-processing shader "DPX3 adapted" added from Reshade 3. it should make the image look like it's been converted to DXP Cineon - basically it's another movie-like look, similar to technicolor. Thanks for your continued support. Matt.
  5. Dear PMDG team, Is there another update coming up for the QOTSII? The Issue tracking thread is being quiet for a while now... I do not mean that there should be an update, just curious to know if you guys found any issues to get corrected and if yes, what kind of issues. Second, any news on the 747-8 extension? Really looking forward to this one! Best regards
  6. X-Craft JUST released the new 2.1 of their e-Series jets. If you already bought these planes off the ORG just sign in to your ORG store account and re-download them. A lot of big fixes but the biggest one I am happy with is the auto-throttle no longer going bonkers like the Devil himself is trying to murder you! These are both fun aircraft to fly!
  7. A few weeks back I posted in Hangar Chat about being rushed into hospital. So I figured I'd update you all on how I am, and tell you an amusing tale in the process... So, you may recall I initially thought I had 'man flu' and was putting up with being very ill, in an attempt 'not to be a pussy' about feeling ill. Eventually however, it got so bad that I staggered into the local hospital's casualty department, and within five mins of seeing a triage nurse, I was on a trolley with blood samples being taken and IV drips going in my arm and the very obvious indication that I would not be going home later that day lol. After a lot of tests, it was determined that I had a streptococcus infection, pneumonia, a collapsed lung, and a few other bits and bobs too (as if all that wasn't enough). After around four of five days in a ward where they were shoving antibiotics into me IV and testing blood pressure etc every hour, I was transferred to another hospital with a more specialised ward for what was wrong with me. This led to me having a lung drain put on me (quite a painful op) and three days of that hauling the infection off my collapsed lung. Now, here is where the fun starts... Far be it for me to slag off doctors and nurses, but sometimes the way they are managed can leave a bit to be desired, so when something is wrong, I've always felt it is incumbent on us to not stand by and say nothing about it, for if we do, then things will not change for the better. It didn't take me long when on that new ward in that new hospital to realise that something was definitely amiss in terms of overall care. In fact there were a lot of things which could have been better, and talking to my fellow patients on the ward only served to confirm that. However, everyone seemed too reserved to complain about it (typical Brits). But you guessed it, not me, I've always been a bolshy sod lol. Chief among complaints was that the staff rarely communicated with the patients to let them know exactly where they were in terms of care and progress, and being that some people on the ward (myself included) were in a fairly serious and potentially life-threatening condition, I found this unacceptable, other more trivial but nonetheless important overall matters included very poor food, which was in fact so bad that most patients were resorting to buying additional food and having relatives bring stuff in. Suffice to say that I ended up with a laundry list of complaints and some phone video evidence of what needed improving. With all that gathered, I demanded to see the healthcare trust's manager, or someone of equivalent status, so that I could make these concerns known. Now, you've never seen hospital staff get a rocket lit under their arses so quickly when you say something like that to them lol. Within about half an hour, I had some head honcho at my bedside, where I explained to them that the real problem was that care and healing comprises two things: physical care, and mental care, i.e an holistic approach to getting people well. One is no good without the other, and I told them in no uncertain terms that whilst they might be fulfilling the physical care side of the bargain, this would be for nothing if people were not kept informed of their progress and what was to occur next in their care plan, and to be kept in the dark with regard to such matters would in fact be detrimental, and I and others were experiencing just exactly that. To round it off, I challenged said head honcho to eat one of the meals which would be coming around that day, and asked them if they would happily give it to their dog, let alone eat it themselves lol. Because I certainly wouldn't have given it to my dogs. To illustrate: By the time I came out of that hospital, I weighed less than 70 kg because of the poor dietary provisions, I was so thin and weak that I literally looked like I'd come from a refugee camp rather than a modern hospital. Not good when one needs to build strength. Anyway, the upshot was, following me expressing my grievances and those on behalf of my fellow ward members, things changed quite a bit in there, with much more communication going on, and within a day and a half, I was out of there, this at my insistence because I felt I would be better off out there and managing my own medication. Although one suspects they were glad to see such an unruly patient go lol. That was about a week and a half ago. I'm currently at home, gradually coming off the medications, and getting stronger. To help with my mental healing, I'm indulging in something I haven't done for a long time - building a model aeroplane, since to do so requires a bit of mental exercise, what with all the research into detailing, markings etc, this again being the two stage healing process, helping your mind as well as your body after having sat doing so little in hospital to challenge one's mind. So, the time came to pick which aeroplane to model: Well, given my bolshy pain in the butt actions against the authority of the hospital (not without good reason), there really could only be one choice couldn't there? Good old Gregory 'Pappy' Boyington's F4U-1 Vought Corsair of VMF-214, aka the Black Sheep Squadron lol. I know that a lot of the 'tale' of Boyington and VMF-214 is sometimes more a case of shrewd US Navy propaganda for a hungry press back in the States during the dark times of the war in the Pacific than much of the reality, but as with most legends, they're usually based on some truth, so I figured it was a fitting choice. Here she is so far...
  8. Hello, I have a question about how may I update the VOR, NDB, Waypoints, etc. for my simulator, P3D v3.4 I have the AIRAC Cycle 1704 and inside I have a lot of files and folders, and I really don't know how to install this. I saw a videotutorial explaining the process for X-Plane 10 and 11, and for those simulators is very easy. You have a RAR file which says and For X-Plane is so easy as uncompress those files in certain folder of the simulator (Xplane 11 or Xplane 10), you use Xplane10_native for X-Plane 10 and xplane11_native for X-Plane 11, and that is all, very easy. However, for Prepar3D I have no idea about how to do this. I see there are a lot of folders inside, and I suspect those folders are for certain aircraft you can purchase... for example I see the zip file, and it is clear that file is to provide the AIRAC data cycle 1704 to that particular plane. However, what I want right now is to update the simualtor, that is, the VOR, NDB, waypoints, etc. get updated. I want the default aircrafts be updated, and the default database for all aircrafts, inside P3D v3.4 be updated. How may I do this? I really don't know what file should I run to update the simulator. Your help would be much appreciated!
  9. Hi fellow members, I'm having some trouble since recent update (0.1.672) Alpha exp 1.5. Since this update my chaseplane keeps crashing unexpectedly within 2 to 3 mins of P3D loading flight. Doesnt matter whether i proceed to do preflight checks or just have the aircraft sitting there without doing anything. I've tried changing all different settings within chaseplane & also restarting it as the un-experimental mode, however it just seems chaseplane seems to jeep crashing. I've also tried finding the error log file on my system numerous times and can't find it. Any help would be much appreciated or to hear from others with similar issues. Many thanks, Simon :)
  10. Hello, Pro-ATC/X has released a new update (v1.8.7.9) I would like some comments on the new update, how is the product working now? Do the update break something within the product like the previous version? I am really curious about this product but the price range is high so would like some feedback before purchasing it. Normally if there are errors and developers are active to fix it I will support them but it took Pro-ATC way too long for just an update and it seems like couple updates within a year, for me seems too few. Thank you, Hoang Le
  11. hello :) I wonder , on x-aviation ,the download limit is a 3. but ,if the jetstream as a update 1.03 > 1.04 ,the réinstal can get the latest update and download this ?

  12. Hello, I have a six year old desktop, running FSX. which is beginning to show its age, although I also have P3D v3 on another on another desktop, I would like to update the FSX system, which is;- Motherboard Gigabyte Z68X-UD4-B3, CPU Intel i7 2600K Sandybridge 3.40Ghz, GPU NVidia GTX 580 DDR5 1536 Mb, Memory Corsair 8Gb Vengeance 1600Mhz, Hard Disc Seagate 1TB 32Mb Cache. I suspect the main improvements could be made with updated CPU & Graphics, but not being a hardware buff, I would appreciated other simmers comments. Thanks Mike
  13. Hello dev team, you did an awesome job so far, but not with latest build 5921... I have stable 51 fps before updating to 5921. I have 25 fps lost with thunderstorm, rain, fog and some clouds, never had fps drops before build 5921! On ground 51 fps with heavy weather, when looking at clouds in wingview or vc 25 fps loss, that can't be, seriously. No fps hit before update in same weather, scenery, addons whatever, I tested it. Some guys in fb groups also have the same fps drops aswell. So, I am NOT the only one having this Performance problem. So please check it and patch this issue. Thx a lot guys for your incredible work so far, but this issue has to be resolved. Kind regards, Tom Weigandt
  14. Cannot install the beta update. Got the above error.
  15. Excited to see there is an update from XP11 beta already. Unfortunately, installer wants me to click through each of the 1000's of modified files. Seems the "Do this for all files in this directory" button doesn't work, leaving you to have to click "Overwrite" of "Keep" for each file. Anyone else have this problem? Any work around?
  16. Hi guys, I am going to release another weekend update to my Evo update. This will include autogen improvement, coasts, new golf courses, tweaked roads, further improved clouds plus some other stuff. Have a nice weekend! Sascha
  17. Hi guys!!! Some time ago i asked you on facebook if there is gonna be an update for this great aircraft? I thought that with the last update you will update the steam gauges version too. Is there gonna be an update for P3D?? Thanks!! Keep up the good work! Ignacio aka tanocapo
  18. I've been so busy using A2A planes and GTN750 for testing purposes in 3.2, that I hadn't noticed that my Real Air Legacy is missing in action (if I could find it, I would give it some action). The Legacy configurator is still responding, I found its folders in the users\appdata\ roaming files, but it's missing in the main install folder in simobjects folder. Since Real Air made an official installer for it, I suppose the pointers to the plane is in an xml file somewhere, but I haven't found it. I'm guessing one of the updates made a new xml file for the one that the Legacy was listed in. It was that or my hard drive swallowed the Legacy's files in the main install folder. Any one know the xml file it might be in?
  19. Good day all. Just noticed that 2.2 was released yesterday (04 MAR) however on checking fspilotshop to redownload the new version, the old 2.1 is still on their servers. Requesting a timeframe for when 2.2 would be sent out.
  20. Having a problem with Carenado Phenom 300 not updating latest Navigraph Airac. When I load the plane the Navigraph update window displays but, stays at 0% Not sure why this is happening because I have the Phenom 100 as well and the update loaded just fine with it. Additionally, no navigational data will load into the 300 (not even the default) making it useless. Has anyone experienced this issue? If so, how did you fix it? Does anyone know what folder the Phenom pulls it's nav data from? I'm thinking maybe I can update manually? Help....
  21. Good Morning, Last night I was hit with several people claiming the graphics or maps in the Duenna do not work. In V0.891 of the Duenna (John Mueller's original) the map does not display but the graphic does. in V2.0 of the Duenna (my update to allow FSX:SE and P3D) the graphic doesn't generate at all. The problem is Google actually, you see John's original Duenna used version 1 of the google maps static api which was deprecated in 2009 and completely turned off last night. When you try to generate a map this is the return. The reason V2 of the Duenna also doesn't work is that I didn't actually modify much of John's original code, the reason no graphic at all is generated is because error handling in .net is different than vb6 (what the original was written in). So what does this mean? Well John's originally duenna will never work again, so anyone who is using that one (which you shouldn't for the race anyway), my apologies but there is no fixing it. As for the V2.0 of the Duenna, I am working on rectifying the situation and will have an update out soon. My apologies for any inconvenience. You may still continue to practice and the Duenna will still spit out a text file. Thanks.
  22. Hello guys, I was told that there is a new update for the 777, this will be my first update since I got this product only a few months ago, now I did the new installation and I'm should be good to go, my question is; what's the changes on the new update, the same person told me that the Virtual memory is less now but I didn't understand that, can anyone please explain maybe in general how this help and also other change on this update please? Im asking since my PC runs this product decent but in some occasions the frames go down, the NGX and the other PMDG products run much better, thanks for any help. Efrain Rodriguez FLORIDA (KMCO)
  23. I'm running FS2004 and using edit voiecpack. While i know that it's not supported anymore I had found a site that had the latest update to edit voicepack done in or around 2006 and downloaded it and it worked great. Well my computer updated and lost it and i didn't save where i found it. Does anyone know??
  24. Hello All I have checked the forum to see if the issue listed below has been covered. I can't find anything about it so here it goes... After taking off from TAPA at 22:30 (so the sky was dark) I noticed that while my cabin lights were set to 90% the pax windows remained dark/black. I then noticed that the windows that used to be see though are now blank, you can't see though them into the cabin and they remain dark no matter what I do (so they remain black with lights on 100% or on automatic (100% or 75%). I am using the PMDG British Airways repaint (G-STBB). This is the only aircraft I fly on FSX so I can 100% confirm they were working before PMDG's latest update. I have checked everything was set correctly and it was. My settings have not changed so the aircraft that worked perfectly (windows see through and you could see light through them at night) are now blank/black/never lit up... I run windows FSX, my operating system is Windows Vista and my graphics card is a GTX 680 (which I have had for a few years now). As I am in the middle of a flight I can't take a screen photo of them problem but I will ensure one is posted once I land later today... Thanks for any help Kind Regards Kimberly RJones.
  25. Hello all, I have the boxed version of 777-200LR/F from Aerosoft which includes updates up to service pack 1c. I want to get the latest service update - SP1d - and I don't know how. Per PMDG's website instructions, the only way to get SP1d is via an electronic purchase: "You will need to log-in to your eCommerce account and redownload the 777 installer from your View previous orders page or from your original purchase email." Since I have not purchased it through eCommerce (and obviously there is no email), how can I get Service Pack 1d for my 777-200LR/F ? Thank you all in advance, Ionut (John) G. Micu
