  1. I use the Update option in Navigraph to update the PFPX data. I now have the many files, including the cycle_info.txt (containing entry for cycle 1906), in C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\PFPX Data\NavData, yet PFPX still gives the database as 1607. I cannot find a way to 'steer' where it is to get its navdata data from. I cannot find any other instance of a cycle_info.txt file. I am happy for you to use a TeamViewer session if that would help.
  2. Hi Stephen, Thanks for your prompt reply. Having deleted the contents of the C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\PFPX Data\NavData\NavData folder (cycle_info.txt and navdata.nav) and rerun the Airac update and confirmed that cycle_info.txt is for cycle 1906 version 1, a restart of PFPX still shows Configuration>Database settings as 1607. What am I failing to do?
  3. I have forgotten how to get PFPX to use my current Navigraph navdata. I have Navigraph cycle 1906 installed but PFPX is only using the default 1607. How do I get PFPX to use my current navdata?
  4. Could someone unpin my pinned tutorial of the flight from Sydney to Vancouver and pin this new, current topic please? Many thanks.😄
  5. It is there - https://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=p3dfp&DLID=209084
  6. Following the popularity of my original flight planning tutorial and YouTube videos, I have now made a more detailed tutorial document in the Avsim Library under Flight Plans. You may download the document from the library.
  7. Thanks Stephen My original problem with the downloaded Q400_v1.00.per from AirlinerPerformance.net has become unnecessary as I now realise that there is the Bombardier Dash8-Q402 already present. Many thanks for your help, A very happy New Year
  8. Hi Stephen, Yes, the Q400.per is in C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\PFPX Data\AircraftTypes and renamed, as suggested by Mykyta, without the v1.00 part. In the Aircraft List window I then Add a New Aircraft (not New fromTemplate) but the dropdown does not list the Q400. But since raising this issue I realise that there is already a Bombardier Dash8-Q400 present in PFPX v2.03 as released (shown in your picture). So my query remains unresolved but at least I can plan a Q400 flight. Many thanks, A Happy New Year, Regards, Richard
  9. I have downloaded the Q400 .per file from Airliners Performance but PFPX does not list it in the dropdown for adding an aircraft. What is going wrong?
  10. Can anyone supply me with a performance file for this aircraft please? If not, a performance file for another single engine aircraft? Many thanks in anticipation.😊
  11. Understand, but it would be great if the .pdf was to be available within the virtual cockpit.
  12. Great news, Judith and Christian, re new daughter and new release
  13. With the imminent release of the PMDG B748, will we have PFPX support for the aircraft?
  14. Hi! I feel that much greater flexibility is offered by using video. A mixture of photos, video, text and audio, although requiring a lot of forethought, is likely to give the greatest impact. From making my YouTube videos, though, I know just how much work is involved in creating something with which I am happy. Best of luck Regards, Richard
  15. To ensure that I have my PANC airport scenery installed correctly with P3Dv4.2, I have flown in/out as a part of a grand world trip. At the same time I have made a video of my arrival/departure. If you would like to view the airport, go to my YouTube channel. If you would like to see additional airports as I video them, then press my YouTube red Subsrcibe button. I look forward to any helpful comments you wish to contribute, either below each video or to this forum. Regards, Richard
  16. Hi Stephen, Nothing stops use as advertised. That's not my point. However unreasonable I expect that, until a product has its support withdrawn, that there will be some evidence of ongoing development/support. I am not complaining, just showing my disappointment at not seeing a rounded-out product.
  17. Hi Ray, I'm not knowledgeable re GA, but know of nothing, outside particular aircraft models, that will help you, I'm afraid. Christian appears to have become overwhelmed by real-world aviation workloads over recent years and, much as we do receive occasional statements tending towards new releases, little happens. It's such a pity because both TOPCAT and PFPX offer very valuable functions but have never got beyond supporting a small subset of aircraft, and then not entirely accurately. Still, I believe that I have had my moneys worth long ago! I would agree that it's not 'proper' to keep offering for sale two products with zero support. Regards, Richard
  18. Hi Ray, Some hope, unfortunately With announcements like PMDG's, I suspect that the interest in a TOPCAT (or whatever) has gone as EFB developments within individual aircraft types come forward.
  19. The Route Export page requires an entry for P3Dv4, please.
  20. Today I purchased what I believe are new credits, using the order form for AES Credits costing Eur 14.95. Unfortunately, I forgot to alter my email address from my old one (speedbird@dsl...) to my new one (speedbird747@...). So the serial number will have been sent to an invalid address. How can I recover my serial number? Cheers, Richard McDonald Woods
  21. I am not aware of any recent posting about the potential of an FSX AES. What is the official position and timing on such a product? Cheers, Richard
