  1. 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
  2. Little Navmap 2.0.3 released Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit) ► Screenshots ► Online Manual ► Features Notes This release contains mostly bugfixes. Changes from Release 2.0.2 to 2.0.3 Online Networks Fixed issue where simulator, AI or multiplayer aircraft did not move or were not updated on the map with certain settings.

    4.2 Update

    Since this was the first time that I updated my version of Prepar3d, from v4.1 to 4.2., I would like some clarification if I did things correctly: I followed the instructions from LM on the downloads page. First off, I uninstalled the Client and reinstalled it and continued with the same process for the scenery and content. However, do I also need to uninstalled and reinstall my entire P3d application as the last step? Or am I good to go? Kind regards,

    FlythemaddogX Updated

    Leonardo's FlythemaddogX has been updated to version 1.1.0. The news was announced via a post on Leonardo's Facebook page earlier today. The new version adds support for Mark Foti's Remote CDU, a freeware utility available in the Avsim library which allows control of the CDU via a smartphone or tablet. In addition, users will be able to enable/disable RealLight separately to TrueGlass, a feature which will be welcomed by many users struggling with performance. The changelog also includes bug fixes within the MCDU and external visual model.
  5. Has anyone else had issues since updating the add-on manager from FSDT? Initially after the update, I was getting CTD every time. I have spent more than 2 hours trying to get this fixed. I at least got the sim to open back up, but now, none of my FSDT airports work. I have gone through all the repair processes, reinstalled the latest add-on manager, but still no luck. I haven't go a clue what is causing the issue, but it is almost like it isn't connecting to simconnect anymore. I was getting the error posted below. If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix it, I would be very appreciative!

  6. Sorry guys, but Im trying to install this update and for some reason I can't. Any known issues or is something I'm doing wrong. i still can use 5.0.18 with no issues, but!!!!
  7. Hello Keven, As i hear (read) several rumors as to Chase Plane has to be updated to work properly in P3Dv4.2, just want to know what is the situation up to now? Do we have to expect an update/fix for P3Dv4.2 or is it working as it is? Untill now i am still on P3Dv4.1...

    Bird strike!!!!!

    P2ATC is all FOWLED up. I started out last year with P2A_2218, updated to 2300 with Nav1701, updated to 2311 and then to 2.4.0.1_x64 with no problems. Well, the same as everyone else that reported bugs. I didn't do any more updates until a few days ago when I added Version 2.4.0.5_x64 update. All the Config info that was forwarded from one update to the next is gone. The serial number and code is still there but no connection to voices or any other of the original info I added to config is there. All the paths are empty. Somehow I can still get IFR clearance somehow but after takeoff it directs me to switch to ATC and then ATC proceeds to rattle of every atc number in the area. At 4000' feet it clears me to the RWY at my destination and ask me to descend. If I download the full 0.5 install and remove everything else, will it work?
  9. I have been using version 0.4.178 in the "experimental" mode for the last week or so and it has performed perfectly! Last night when I opened ChasePlane the opening box with an airplane appeared and it began to go through the usual progression of steps prior to the GUI opening. When it reached the step regarding something like "checking for update" the update automatically began and a download progress box (?) appeared. The progress bar showed the installation progress but when it reached 99% it came to a "screeching halt". After staring at the unfinished progress bar for ten minutes or so with nothing happening I finally closed ChasePlane and then, again, clicked my desktop icon. Again the loading box appeared but the moment it reached the "checking for updates" the whole loading box disappeared completely from the my desktop. After three or more tries with the same result I did a "shutdown" and restart" and then tried the ChasePlane icon again and, again, with the same results. As of now I'm at a loss as to how to regain my beloved ChasePlane. Any suggestions will be most appreciated but please speak slowly and use small words as I am not a computer "Rocket Scientist". Thanks in advance, Quink

    PMDGJ41 Update

    Hi, Version 2.2 (I suppose) Blue interface is open (1.0)> check for update> error message> unable to contact the server. With FsCrew 777: no problem to contact the server??? Thanks
  11. G'day All Just a quick question regarding the recent update. My 737 has 19hrs left before it's 250hr maintenance is due. If i update using the new full intstall am I going to lose my hours flown? as I have it set to realistic failures and don't want it to be set back to 250hrs Regards Daren Flew Australia
  12. Receantly I saw that X-Plane 10 has version 10.40 going through beta stages. My question is can I update my X-Plane 10 Steam version 10.30 something to the newest beta version and if so, how to do that? Thanks in advance Marko Lisica
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. Hi All, Announcement is here. This update includes several bugfixes, small GUI improvements, a revised manual and support for the OpenAir airspace format for X-Plane. Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit) Changes from Release 1.6.4 to 1.6.6 Version 1.6.5 was an internal beta release. Little Xpconnect did not change. Little Navconnect was updated to 1.6.2. Improvements Added OpenAir airspace format compilation for X-PLane. Also reading airspace files from from YOUR_DOCUMENTS_DIR/Little Navmap/X-Plane Airspaces. You have to create the Little Navmap/X-Plane Airspaces directory manually. Added new airspace types Wave Window and Glider Prohibited. Removed restrictions on user defined waypoint names. Names are now adjusted according to flight plan format when saving. Enabled user defined waypoint names for X-Plane FMS format. Changed rating checkbox to drop down list in airport search. X-Plane 3D airport state is now considered when calculating rating. Added display of simulator type to connection status in statusbar. Airspace buttons are now disabled if no airspaces are loaded. Now clipping long airport and user waypoint names on map. Removed no SimConnect header label in connect dialog. Added display of AIRAC cycle to database dialog (X-Plane only). Added scenery file display for airspaces in information window. Added download button to update notification dialog. Better error handling and reporting of too old files with version < 850 when loading X-Plane scenery. Now checking X-Plane CIFP filenames before loading. Now showing dialog on certain crash types to avoid silent crash to desktop. Made loading of add-on.xml more robust for files with wrong encoding. Added coordinates to CSV export to clipboard from flight plan and search result tables. Bug Fixes Offline map themes Atlas and Simple: Fixed missing lakes in map. Fixed problem loading FS9 flight plans. Attempt to fix zoom distance creep while using moving map. Fixed error in airspace copy process from older database schemes where bounding rectangle was messed up. This resulted in an Too many objects message in the statusbar. Solved problem with gaps between SIDs, STARs and the respective transitions resulting in wrong display and distance calculation. Fixed problem where STAR was not reloaded after database switch. Fixed issue where airspace display was not updated when changing cruise altitude with empty flight plan. Fixed user waypoint format for FLP so that it can be reloaded. Fixed confusing 0 errors dialog appearing after loading X-Plane database successfully. Fixed Connect on startup checkbox state not saved in some cases. Fixed status bar connection indication remaining in disconnected state sometimes. Fixed potential crash on failing network connection. Calculate based on given altitude is working again. Previously failed with Cannot find a route. Now correctly considering minimum and maximum altitude ranges when calculating to avoid non-overlapping airway altitude ranges in one flight plan. Fixed error in flight plan saving logic where cancel did not stop saving. Alex
  16. 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 xplane10_native_1704.zip and xplane11_native_1704.zip 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 jardesign_a320neo_native_1704.zip, 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!
  17. Hi, I have re-downloaded the file from the customer portal and installed it but it never showed a registration popup and still shows black gauges. Please help. Thanks.
  18. Cannot install the beta update. Got the above error.
  19. We are pleased to provide the community an update on the AVSIM sponsored Richard Harvey Endowed Scholarship. First, some background. At the passing of Richard Harvey, team lead for the FLY! series of flight simulators, in early 2003, AVSIM opened a scholarship fund in Richard's name at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). Hundreds of community members and commercial organizations contributed to the Scholarship fund. The Scholarship reached over $10,000, at which point it could fund itself from year-to-year. In other words, it became self-endowed. Every year AVSIM receives an update from ERAU on the status and funding level of the scholarship. We are pleased to report the following: Fund Balance as of June 30, 2011: $16,106.36 Fund Balance as of June 30, 2012: $15,700.08 Amount Awarded in 2011 - 2012 Academic Year: $750.00 We will receive the profile of this years Scholarship recipient later this spring.

    Service Pack 1d for B737NGX

    I am going round in circles! I bought the PMDG B737NGX on Nov 5, 2014 from FlightStore UK. I wish to download liveries to add to my enjoyment but when I go to the PMDG website I am told I need to log in to my eCommerce account. I actuallyget the following message: "You will need to log-in to your eCommerce account and redownload the 737 installer from your View previous orders page or from your original purchase email." As you can see, I did not buy my boxed version direct from PMDG, so cannot follow this route. Can anyone explain how I can obtain the Service Pack 1d to upgrade my B737NGX? Apparently I need the update to enable me to get the <Operations Center> application, without which I am unable to download and use the liveries obtainable from PMDG. I do have the <Livery Manager> application installed, but am unable to download any liveries.
  21. I have been having issues with all textures on the 737-600/700 ever since I upgraded to the new update. If I uninstall the new update and install the previous version this goes away but as soon as I delete the old one and install the new one it creates a line on the back of the aircraft running under the passenger windows and through the left aft exit. Any ideas? Picture at http://picpaste.com/1-MnNTEMsA.png Shyam Kumar
  22. I'm running FS2004 and the current version of edit voice pack for it. I found a link to the last official update of edit voice pack for FS2004 and the file was dated in 2006. It was the files which you download to your computer and then go into edit voice pack update and do the offline update. It worked great and i was messing with some settings and lost it. I was wondering if anyone here knows where it is? Thanks for the help in advance. If some finds it for me I'll deliver a steak dinner B)

    777 update from Aerosoft support

    I purchased the boxed version of PMDG777 from PCAviators.com some time ago. I installed and have used it in FSX for some time now with no problems, but recently purchased Prepar3d v4 and wanted to try the aircraft in that program. I went to support.aerosoft.com to download the latest update but it wont acdept my key from the box. I have tried several times and even contacted aerosoft support and I get this reply: Tom Weigandt (Aerosoft - Support Service) Jul 31, 20:27 CEST Dear Sir, We have seen some customers whose serials were not accepted by our servers when updating to the latest versions. This issue is tracked down to the fact our database did not contain all key series (mainly for the boxed release). Our mistake, sorry. This is now corrected and all serials should be accepted. Please try again, when things still fail send us the serial that is not accepted via email at support@aerosoft.com Kind regards This issue is still unresolved because I still can not access the update. I'm hoping someone here can offer some much needed assistance. Thanks in advance! Glyn Bolyer

    PMDG Releases Updated Info on B777

    Rob Randazzo has tonight provided an update on the status of the B777 and has provided some pretty stunning images of the cockpit. If this long awaited add-on is of interest to you, we suggest you have a read of Rob's lengthy post here.
