  1. Solved it.....When I updated the aircraft.cfg, I did not notice that I had missed out a bracket surrounding the fltsim.xx] when I had cut and pasted. When I included the front " [ " , the livery showed up..Its all about "details". This was found by the https://www.inibuilds.com/ support guys. Some great stuff in their site.
  2. Hi Kev.. I just installed a texture.VHQPJ into my Simobjects>Airplanes>Aerosoft A333 RR Professional folder, and the aircraft config file, correctly named VHQPJ into the aircraft.cfg FLTSIM list, consecutively numbered, and mine did not show up either...Not sure why, as all its partners show up in the same folders etc. Now in my case, my Simobjects for the Aerosoft a/c I have lives in the download file structure I have all the Aerosoft aircraft I have loaded, and not in the P3D folder. But this should not matter as other textures load ok. Ummm, need to look further and maybe try other repaints as maybe an issue with some of them.
  3. Solved the task bar issue. When I started digging, I also noticed the top bar was missing the minimise and X buttons. I clicked the Ctrl + Enter keys, this brought back the top and bottom bars correctly and now my task bar is back. So, some how with all my key pushing to resolve my EFB issue, I must have inadvertently clicked these two keys without noticing. ok, solved.
  4. Thanks Mathijs, that resolved the issue of bright screen. Also stops me testing settings that kills my P3D sessions. Something strange did happen though. After "panel.cfg.stop" of the original panel.cfg, and applying the replacement 'panel.cfg', my task bar is removed when I have a P3D session, making getting to other functions like chaseplane etc now requiring use of the windows key each time. Then when I reverted back to the original panel.cfg, the problem still remains...So, maybe a coincidence, that this issue just appeared at the same time. I always have my task bar 'locked', so usually always there. Need to dig further to see what I have done to cause this.
  5. I have just loaded the A330, (with Experimental) The main issue so far is the EFB white out when I have HDR on, and the P3D lighting settings set as stated in Vol .1. have been used. If I turn off HDR, then I can read the EFB great, but the cockpit is in dusk brightness and overhead needs lights to see anything. Also, if I turn the EFB to night time mode, it becomes more readable. Some times while I am clicking the various EFB tabs too quickly, it crashes my system. I had a look at some other of my a/c with EFB, eg, the Aerosoft CRJ 700/900 works great, as well as overhead visibility. The QW 787 Has a Bright/Dim control toggle button so all users systems can use the EFB. I realise this is different technology...but the problems are the same. I am using P3D v on client, cont. and scenery. My Samsung, 32" 2 k monitor is set at 50% settings, so no colour saturation. I checked it against a colour test card, and it looked ok. I have removed and let P3D rebuild the shaders folder. To my knowledge, I have no other shader programs. I have a GTX 1070 video card. Drivers all updated two weeks ago. I also tried using another monitor, 24" 1080, but still the same brightness issue. Anyway, if a solution can't be found, then maybe the best resolution is for Aerosoft to provide a switch to turn off the EFB, (like 'Dave" in the CRJ) then those of us who can't use it, can at least remove the distraction.
  6. I was in cruise at FL380, some 5 hours into a 7 hour flight(KJFK-EGLC) with no action on the stick(Logitech Extr 30 Pro, using Chaseplane. I notes there are several posts scattered about the forum. To me, it is like the aircraft has run out of fuel and flattened the batteries (despite loads of fuel on board) the aircraft systems just shut down, in my case, the packs went, then the gens then a few moments later, all black. When I was just getting out the life jackets, when at about FL120, she came back to life, with no FMS loaded...
  7. Umm, and I thought I had done something....On a long flight BAW2, KJFK-EGLC with the A318(BA Livery) and just short of Shannon, I just lost all power including electrics, in the night with nothing on the screens....A tad scary, as no RAT, no emergency power. I first noticed pack 2 fault, then pack1 then the gens off line...sort of like fuel starvation, though FOB=7280kg... But after descending from FL380 through 9000, all of a sudden, everything came back to life..Though, the flight plan was lost. Now diverting to EGAA and will land here and give most of my passengers some Valium, then re-schedule the flight later today. First time ever this happen with the buses.
  8. OK, I have been doing a little reading of the Operating Manual. Pg 31 and button pushing...The manual says: "The green AVAIL light of the AC pushbutton on the overhead panel will illuminate as soon as the power supply is connected to the aircraft." In my case this is not happening. The green AVAIL light does not illuminate. On the EICAS screen... 1. When External Power is available SERVICE CONFIGURATION will be displayed...... I do not get this message.... 2. When External Power is connected to the busses the Generator load, Voltage and Frequency will be displayed...I see no values... NOW, a strange thing...Sitting here with the external power cart running for 15 minutes while trying switches and buttons", the AVAIL light suddenly appeared. and with every reboot, now always turns on straight away when the external power is connected???? It was like my machine was "learning the circuitry". This is how AC electrics works on my CRJ700... Load CRJ700 from the P3D menu.>Locate at airport/Gate.>Make sure parking brake is on.>Use Dave to make the flight deck Cold and Dark.>Place Blocks on wheels.>Turn on ext power cart>Check the Overhead Panel = So, AVAIL light on when ext power is connected to aircraft. I had expected this. On the EICAS screen... 1. When External Power is available SERVICE CONFIGURATION will be displayed...... No, not correct. This message is only displayed when the AC IN USE button is pressed, connecting the busses. Prior to doing this, the only clue I see that the external power is connected on the EICAS screen is the EXT AC inside a round symbol is displayed. 2. When External Power is connected to the busses the Generator load, Voltage and Frequency will be displayed...Correct. I also see the lines connecting the various parts are now colored green, and the SERVICE CONFIGURATION message appears at the top left side of the EIUCAS screen. I found by using the MCDU MENU, I can bring up the panel states, but could not work out hoe to save the new created state name? So, pretty well all of my questions resolved.
  9. I have P3Dv4.3 and v of the CRJ 700/900 installed. Just starting to get to grips with the CRJ. A few of questions... Do I have to use Dave every time I want a Cold and dark panel start? because using the mcdu blacks out when you switch to cold and dark panel state before you can save this start up. When I have used Dave to set the state to Cold and Dark, connected the ground power cart (love the startup sound of it) and used the wheel blocks, the overhead light signifying external power 'avail' does not display. Interestingly,when I do a lamp test, it also does not show. On the AC Electrical panel, should the EXT AC diagram say connected etc or nothing? When I go to the APU panel, and while the battery master is on, should the APU indicate a green AVAIL light? mine does not. When doing the lamp test, it does show.
