  1. I just went ahead and reinstalled and that seems to have fixed the problems.
  2. Where Can I Find ROLIS 2L for EDDF?

    I shall follow your recommendation and get NavDataPro. Thank you. If I have questions about how these EDDF arrivals work in real life, is this forum the best place to ask?
  3. Where Can I Find ROLIS 2L for EDDF?

    I have version 2.0 for FSX, purchased in 2016, which came with charts dated July 2015; section 6 goes only to 6-30 and doesn't have ROLIS 2L. Perhaps you are referring to a more recent version. How could I obtain the set of charts which do contain ROLIS 2L? Also, why wouldn't the VATSIM Germany charts not have ROLIS 2L?
  4. Where Can I Find ROLIS 2L for EDDF?

    I am sorry if I was too cryptic. I have Mega Airport Frankfurt and I try to match flights from CYYZ to EDDF with my PMDG 777. I have the 2016 package of charts from VATSIM Germany and it has charts for other ROLIS arrivals but not ROLIS 2L. I thought it must be new and I can see it (ROLI2L) in the latest AIRAC 1709 but I don't know how to use it without a chart so I was trying to find a chart.
  5. FlightAware is showing ROLIS 2L for aircraft landing on Rwy 7L but I can't find any information, even at VATSIM Germany. Can anyone tell me where I can find it? Thank you.
  6. I have MAF 2.0 for FSX and I have a question about the approach lighting. Specifically, the sequenced strobe lights are shown only sometimes; just now, they are not shown at all. Is there something I can do to fix that? All the approach and runway lights are wonderfully bright and so are the strobe lights when they are working. Also, at a zoom of 1.00, the PAPIs don't become visible until about 4.7 nm. Is this the normal distance? Thank you.
  7. Overwing Jetways and Stoplines at EHAM

    With regard to the overwing jetways, I see some discussion on other forums about them being replaced with standard jetways in the G pier. This means that the satellite view in Google Maps (and FlightRadar24) showing standard jetways is more up to date than the satellite view in Bing Maps showing overwing jetways. If that is so, is there likely to be an update to reflect this change?
  8. I have started duplicating Jet Airways flights JAI233 and JAI234 between CYYZ and EHAM using my PMDG B777-300ER and I am using Mega Airport Amsterdam V104 for FSX. These flights generally use Gates G6 or G7. I have some questions about B777s using G6 and G7. Both gates use the overwing jetway which I understand, in its parked position, already extends over the wing. The problem is that the jetway isn't high enough to clear the B777 wing. Should I assume that nothing can be done in Mega Airport Amsterdam to accommodate the B777 at these gates? As an alternative gate, I tried G9 and found that it has a sign which shows G3 beside the Visual Docking Guidance System. Also, I tried F7 and it has an overwing jetway with at least one metre clearance so I could use that. Using F7 as an example, I have a question about the stoplines for the nosewheel. The lines are numbered from 3 to 14. What do the numbers mean? Should a specific aircraft type stop at a specific stopline. At F7, my B777-300ER is placed by FSX at stopline 3 but the Visual Docking Guidance System says “TFAR”. If I adjust the position so that the Visual Docking Guidance System says “OK”, the position is as shown in the image below. Is this difference because the system is calibrated for the default FSX aircraft, or should it be reasonably accurate for any high quality payware aircraft? I should say that I am very happy with my Aerosoft EHAM, as I am with my EDDF and EGLL.
  9. Additional information: The problem seems to occur only with the PMDG B777; it doesn't occur with the PMDG B747 (original version) or with a variety of default FSX aircraft.
  10. Object on ramp of MA Frankfurt

    In my case, I have just FSX SP2 and no global addons. I see the exact same object in the exact same position with EDDF v2.10 but, when I uninstall v2.10 and re-install v2.06 the object disappears and, when I uninstall v2.06 and re- install v2.10, the object re-appears.
  11. Object on ramp of MA Frankfurt

    I see the same in FSX.
