  1. Stephen, okay thanks. I’ll experiment with a few routes and see how well it works. Now what about my second point?
  2. Stephen, I do this on every flight and do get good FLs. But my flights are limited to around 1.5hrs or less. What about 3-4 hour flights where a step climb would probably be required. Can PFPX calculate that correctly and come up with an initial realistic flight level? Despite posting earlier this year that issues would be fixed he has failed to announce anything and appears to have gone into silent mode yet again. Are you able to convince him an announcement is in his company's interest?
  3. Otto. I’m not really sure what can be achieved with further discussion. Aerosoft have acknowledged there is a problem with the supplied AFCAD and will release a fix. Miguel doesn’t use an Ai package so he won’t experience the problem.
  4. @Miguel_V, sorry but the translator isn't doing a very good job. I don't really understand what you're trying to say. I'll try guessing that you suggest using the taxiway from the north at the very end of 27L. That is the one I am now using. The larger one next to it is disabled. The taxiway from the south is okay and doesn't need changing.
  5. Miguel, mine is not an official fix. It’s there for those who want a quick fix before the official one is released. The Ai have no problem navigating to the end of 27L.
  6. Thank you Miguel. That AFCAD shows it would have the same problem as the AFCAD supplied by SimWings. Let's see what they come up with. For now, my fix works for me.
  7. Cheers Dave. SimWings Heathrow Professional for P3D v4.
  8. I've modified the AFCAD along the lines of Oliver's Solution 1 above and have been monitoring departures from 27L for the last few hours. All Ai on the northern side of the airfield line up and depart from the most easterly taxi route. Those on the southern side are unaffected and operate as before. I'm attaching it for anyone who wants to use it. You'll need to rename the original. Hope this doesn't affect any copyright issues. If so, then just remove it. This is only a temporary fix. I'm sure Aerosoft / SimWings will come up with an official fix. But for now there have been no goarounds and Ai appear to be behaving as they should.
  9. Miguel, If you have an Ai package position your aircraft close to 27L and watch the Ai taxiing from the north side of 27L. See if they exhibit the same behaviour. Is there a waiting point for the taxiway on the left of your screenshot?
  10. Oliver, thank you for taking the time to explain the problem and suggest two solutions. I have started to edit the AFCAD along the lines of solution 1 which would route all Ai on the north side towards the eastern-most entry route. With solution 2 it would take a long time for Ai coming from the south (Terminal 4) to line up for take-off. The AFCAD is replicating real-world ops but this shows up the limitations of ESP code. Mine is just a quick fix. Once the official fix is made available I’ll switch to yours. 👍
  11. Apologies. That's the AFCAD for Xtended which I have for P3Dv3. The AFCAD for v4 is in:- D:\P3Dv4\Aerosoft\Sim-wings London Heathrow Professional\scenery and is named EGLL_AFX_STD.bgl. Image below. Same problem with no direct routing from the taxiway turning right onto 27L. I'll look at how I can do that as a temporary fix, thanks Juergen. Thanks Oliver. How long before a fix is issued? Westerly departures are common at EGLL perhaps 80% of the time. With so many Ai in my system the longer it takes for a departing aircraft to line up the greater the chance of go-arounds. Not nice. 😞
  12. Hi Jurgen, I've captured these screenshots showing the problem. The AFCAD in use is AFX_EGLL_P3D.BGL dated 17 Sept 2014. ADE reports multiple issues. It would be nice to have a clean one. Here is a screenshot of the AFCAD in the affected area. Notice the taxi line from the left taxiway doesn't appear to have a route to turn right onto 27L.
  13. I have no means of making a video, sorry. I’ll take a few screenshots to show the problem.
  14. Hi Dave, Im using AIG Ai but that shouldn’t be an issue, surely. It doesn’t modify the AFCAD which is the one supplied with the package. I’ll open it with ADE tomorrow and check that area myself. In your screenshots that looks like the western end of 27L. Could you check please? It’s the end nearest London I’m interested in. Westerly departures from 27L. Out of interest does it return zero faults when Find Faults is run?
  15. I'm sat at the eastern end of 27L watching Ai coming from the north taxi onto 27L for take-off. They move onto the runway and look as they are going to taxi right across towards Terminal 4 before turning left through 270 degrees eventually lining up and departing. What they should do is just turn right 90 degrees and line up. This is not normal behaviour and I suspect the taxiway connectors need some fine tuning. Is there a modified AFCAD this can fix this issue?
  16. The author of PFPX announced in February a to-do list was being compiled. Since then, nothing. I share other’s concerns about the future of PFPX and TopCat. An announcement about future plans would be appreciated. @srcooke, you do a great job of support but the author really does need to make a statement.
  17. Installing the x86 version of vcredist did the trick, thanks Stephen.
  18. Thanks for the suggestions chaps. I did find that creating a new plan then did allow the Load option to work but obviously I don’t want to do that each time. I shall try installing the vcredist files first, thanks. I am on 1903 which appears to have caused the problem. Don’t you just love Windows. 🤨
  19. I'm running v2.03 of PFPX. When the interface opens on the Schedule page I select the Flight tab. When I press Load there is a short pause and then PFPX crashes to the desktop. Happened three times now with a reboot too. I suspect a Windows 10 update may have caused it but it's worrying as the program is usually pretty stable. Will this post suffice or do I need to raise a ticket? This is the error produced:- Faulting application name: PFPX.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5c0e3189 Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.18362.1, time stamp: 0x9bbcb4a9 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x00040a78 Faulting process ID: 0x3630 Faulting application start time: 0x01d538a59bd450eb Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Professional Flight Planner X\PFPX.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report ID: d2da0155-1f1d-4361-9c2a-f9b3f6468df4 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:
  20. A minor but slightly irritating issue. With a Profile displayed if I then select the three dots against Run ConfigSet but then cancel out without making any changes the Save Profile option is highlighted. But I haven't made any changes. I am then prompted to save changes when switching to another profile or exiting SimStarterNG. Can you please correct this so Save Profile is only highlighted if a change is actually made to a config set.
  21. I've finally figured it out. The configuration to be loaded is stored in GFConfig.ini located in C:\ProgramData\GoFlight. By making copies of that file and editing the relevant line to point to the gfc I want to load it gets loaded by running a batch file. The batch file is now included in the relevant RunConfig set. If anyone else has multiple GoFlight gfc files this is how to load the right one automatically.
  22. Hi Peter, Thanks for your reply. I entered this into the Start Run command... "C:\Program Files (x86)\GoFlight\GFConfig.exe" C:\Users\Ray\Documents\GoFlight\FSDefault.gfc But it just opens the GFConfig.exe with the currently loaded configuration. Do I need to run it with Admin privileges as the source is in Program Files(x86)? Or have I just got the command wrong with the quotations? I have tried with and without on the config path but no joy. In any case that GFConfig program doesn't need to remain open. A separate file is called to control the GoFlight modules from within P3D - GFDevP3Dv4.exe. All I'm trying to do is open GFConfig, load the config file and then close GFConfig.
  23. I find SimStarter excellent for launching various programs depending on where and what I fly. However, there is one action I still have to run manually and I’m wondering if there’s a possibility it could be added to SimStarter. I have various GoFlight saved configurations and they can only be changed by launching the GFConfig utility and loading it there. Is there any way of configuring SimStarter for the relevant config file to be associated with a scenario?
  24. I'm pleased to report than Aerosoft have been in touch and have approved a refund for the difference. Thanks to Dave for helping out with this.
  25. I was guided by the Aerosoft staff Dave. But if I’d seen your sig earlier I would have taken up the invite. 😉
