    • No time acceleration. P3dv4.5. Win10   On previous CTDs using Windows 7 I frequently got the D3D10Warp.dll error. No matter what web solution I tried to resolve it it would not go away.
    • I don't believe you can change the pressure configuration within Topcat.   Using the main program you can see hPa as the main function with the inHg equivalent displayed:     If you call up the results table you'll also see the hPa figure in use which is relayed back to PFPX:   TAKE-OFF KORD/ORD  RWY 10L  TORA 3962M             G-ZESA  BOEING 747-400 RB211-524H CHICAGO OHARE INTL                                 TEMP +2C   QNH 1018   WIND 110/09 (08KT HW) ------------------  CONDITIONS  ------------------- TOW 216523 KG   FLAPS 10   THRUST TO2   RWY DRY AIR COND ON   ANTI ICE ON OR OFF ------------------  FULL THRUST -------------------    +2C 271020 OBS(B) 114-121 121 141   2221M   1.57 ----------------  REDUCED THRUST  -----------------   +69C 234034 OBS(B) 127-129 129 139   1054M   1.37   +70C 231976 CLIMB    129   129 139    980M   1.37   +71C 227989 CLIMB    129   129 139    902M   1.37   +72C 224001 CLIMB    129   129 139    823M   1.37 //+73C 220102 CLIMB    129   129 139    740M   1.37 *************************************************** DO NOT EXCEED MAX STRUCT TAKE-OFF WGHT OF 396894 KG *************************************************** ------------------  ENGINE OUT  ------------------- "AT 2200' LT TO HP 'OBK' 113.0" (092 INBD RT) ---------------------- END  -----------------------    
    • Hello, I am having a recurrence of my issue noted in this thread: I hadn't flown the A330 in some time, the only major system change I can think of was to update windows.  When I did so some permissions changed for A330 folders but I put them back so that all users have access.   Last night I reinstalled using Dave's instructions as I did to solve the issue last time.  After doing so I started up the sim to test and the plane loaded successfully.  However this morning when I went to start the sim to conduct a flight the CTD's continue.   There is no error message given and nothing shows up in event viewer.  The flight loads to 100%, I hear what sounds like the landing gear settling on the ground, then it crashes.  The screen remains black.  No other aircraft are affected in the same way.   Logs are attached, other relevant info: A330 version: 1.0.0.7 P3D Version: 4.5.13.32097 Windows Version: Windows 10 Home Edition, version 1909, build 18363.657   ECAM_Systems.log EFB_Ctrl.log Immersion.log MCDUFPLNDataClb.txt MiscD2D.log AB_ND_GDI.log
    • Hi, When I select any A21 with IAE engines the performance table shows the engines as being CFM (see screen shot attached.   The aircraft.cfg file general section has the following:  [GENERAL]        //A321 atc_type                = AIRBUS atc_model                = A321IAE editable                = 0 performance                = "Cruise Speed\n0.78 Mach        530 mph    828 km\/h\n\nEngine options\nCFM56-5B3 33,000 lb thrust\n\nMaximum Range\n2,454 nm        4,352 km\n\nService Ceiling\n41,000 ft        12,497 m\n\nFuel Capacity\n42,000 lb        19,050 kg\n\nEmpty Weight\n105,906 lb        48,038 kg\n\nMaximum Gross Weight\n196,210 lb        89,000 kg\n\nLength\n146 ft        44.51 m\n\nWingspan\n111 ft, 10 in    34.09 m\n\nHeight\n38 ft, 7 in        11.76 m\n\nSeating (typical configuration)\n186" Category                 = airplane   Can anyone please advise what should be the correct entries.   Kind Regards
    • Hi, I posted on this before but now I have more information. The issue is that PFPX calls TOPCAT for the takeoff and landing data, and then brings the altimeter setting back in hectopascals, which gets passed to the OFP, even when the airport is located in a region in which inches of mercury would be preferred.   Attached is a screenshot of PFPX calling TOPCAT for takeoff information from Chicago O'Hare. You can see that PFPX/TOPCAT is fetching the altimeter setting in inches of mercury, and interpreting the METAR correctly - you'll see that under "Pressure," the correct numbers 30.06 are displayed.    However, when you look at the results window (this is the information that TOPCAT will append to the OFP), you'll see that the altimeter setting is in hectopascals ("QNH 1018"). You'll see it in the line that reads:   TEMP +2C QNH 1018 WIND 130/12 (09KT HW) (emphasis added)   That line is brought into the PFPX flight plan verbatim.   I'm guessing that TOPCAT is looking at a config setting somewhere that requests results be given in hPa, but for the life of me I can't see where that would be. The PFPX file for the aircraft I'm using has the units set at feet and pounds. Under TOPCAT performance module, the file that is called is Boeing 747-400 RB211-524H, but I'm not sure what that links to or even if it's the problem. Within TOPCAT, I have only one aircraft in the aircraft database, and under "Aircraft Details," the pressure units are listed as inches of mercury.   Inside the TOPCAT "Aircraft" folder, the files are unreadable to me (i.e., not readable by a standard text editor). Inside the TOPCAT "Configurations" folder,  I can see some readable configurations but I can't see a line for setting a preference for the altimeter setting.   That's all I can think of. Can anyone help me get TOPCAT to send inHg to PFPX? Thanks!
