  1. Yes, added manually to cfg but SimStarter did not ask me if I wished to add them to the cfg. I have now edited the master.cfg removing the erroneous entry and the problem is resolved.
  2. Running SimStarterNG v2.2.1 (rev 12) in P3Dv5.2HF1. I edited prepar3d.cfg to include an entry for the Affinity Mask. Unfortunately I used a space in the title [JOB SCHEDULER] so the AF setting was ignored. This was editing the file directly outside of SimStarterNG. Later I realised my mistake and used the AF Calculator in SimStarterNG to set an AF of 1365. I now have a correct [JOBSCHEDULER] AF entry in the prepar3d.cfg. But despite editing prepar3d.cfg to remove [JOB SCHEDULER] entry it returns each time I close SimStarterNG after a flight. Are there other copies of prepsr3d.cfg that need editing to remove this erroneous entry? If so, where are they?
  3. Hello Peter, Your tone is surprisingly sarcastic. That's not like you. Is any of this mentioned in the SimStarterNG documentation? I did look through it and the Hi-Fi docs but could find nothing. Now that I know how the new ASP3D works I'll probably set it up to stay on the desktop (via SimStarter) or run it when Windows starts and leave it out of SimStarter altogether. You might consider "pinning" that information to the top of your topic list since it's a radical departure from how AS previously worked with SimStarter.
  4. Three days on and no response from @Capt. PERO. Is anyone able to check if he's okay?
  5. Hi Otto. Glad I’m not alone. I never had the problem with P3Dv4.5 but it used a different version of Active Sky and SimStarter. There wasn’t a switch in the earlier version of SimStarter either but AS did close and ASCA closed too. If I add ASP3D to the Run command it will terminate but ASCA stays open. So I have to use the AS option in SimStarterNG.
  6. This is disappointing. Over 24 hours since I posted and no reply. I can see @Capt. PEROwas around on Monday so I assume he’s okay. This has to be a bug. I’ve been using SimStarter long enough to know how it works.
  7. I also have SimStarterNG v1.8.7 (rev 1) for P3D v4 and v3. I have it configured to launch ActiveSky and it loads and unloads after P3D is closed. I have checked the install path for and everything looks fine. This is very frustrating. Do you want a log to assist in solving this problem?
  8. I hadn't fixed it. I have SimStarterNG configured to launch ASP3D which will also launch ASCA. Now whilst it will launch it does not terminate after P3Dv5 closes. This is the startup screen. Is everything as expected? Just to reiterate I've run AS like this in P3Dv4 for ages without issue. But it was a different version not requiring this login action. Whilst that works AS does not terminate when P3Dv5 closes. It should shouldn't it?
  9. I think I've fixed it. I had to run another exe in Active Sky so it would auto-connect. Seems to be working but I'll confirm later.
  10. No suggestions as to why ASP3D isn't terminating after closing P3Dv5? I've had SimStarterNG for years and this worked perfectly in v4
  11. I have configured SimStarterNG v2.1.3 (rev 23) to launch Active Sky (ASP3D) for P3Dv5 via the Extended settings tab. It starts okay but when I exit P3D it stays running as shown by the icon in the system tray. Any way of solving this please?
  12. @mopperle, I’m not getting any younger and had forgotten I asked the question. 😉 Thanks for clarifying.
  13. Currently I have SimStarterNG installed for P3D v3 and v4. Now that I have bought P3D v5 I need to buy the latest version of SimStarterNG to support than version. I still need to use P3Dv3 for Concorde meaning the existing version of SimStarterNG needs to remain. Can I have two versions installed without causing any problems?
  14. Panic over. I logged on to my PC Aviator account and found the order details which includes the reg code. Now safely stored away. Phew! For some odd reason they never included it in the email sent when I purchased the software.
  15. Thanks Stephen. I can provide them with proof of purchase if required. None of this would be necessary if the update didn't bugger up the windows positions. So frustrating.
  16. Thanks Stephen. Just found it and sent a request. All my codes were sent in an email except the one for PFPX. I bought it from PC Aviator rather than direct. Would that make a difference? Nothing about a reg code in my PC Aviator emails.
  17. Sorry to resurrect an old topic. Since updating to 2.04 I have to keep resetting windows positions and it's getting tiring. Quite why they can't be saved is a mystery. I would uninstall and start afresh but I cannot find my registration code. I'm very organised so don't understand why I can't find it. You would think it would be present from inside PFPX but it isn't. I have the TopCat one but not PFPX. So until I can locate my key (I have the receipt from 2013) I'm stuck. Any help appreciated.
  18. Thanks Stephen. I used the wrong words when searching the forum. Given support said they would look at this back in December and no fix is forthcoming I'll stay with 2.04 until such time as the message starts to become annoying at which point I'll use my backup to revert to 2.03. Maybe a ploy to get us to subscribe to their wx. 🙂
  19. Since updating to v2.04 PFPX is reporting that upper wnd data is not available. This was not a problem with earlier versions. I use Active Sky for P3D as my weather source. Any way to resolve this problem please?
  20. Fair enough Otto. It’s not a system that I agree with but accept it’s what Aerosoft have decided is best for them.
  21. @DaveCT2003, there are two aspects of Aerosoft forums that I do not like given you want this place to be sincere and friendly. 1) There is a down vote option. What is the purpose of that other than to cause aggrevation? AvSim did away with those ages ago as they were considered inflammatory. 2) If someone likes a post why is their identity hidden? If someone likes my post I'd like to know who they are.
  22. Development of features in PFPX certainly appears to have ceased. Same with Topcat. As long as it works I’ll use it. That’s me done in this topic.
  23. I never said it was “dead” so why have you misquoted me? Support for tickets raised by customers is certainly non existent.
  24. Cloudster, the program itself works fine and I use it daily. What I will not do is subscribe to the weather service any more. Active Sky is fine for that and can provide historical weather. PFPX only provides current. I doubt they’ll ever release new products and whether there will ever be a working flight plan for MFS is debatable. I’m not sure how much it differs from the P3D/FSX one. I use PFPX for the PMDG737 and several other 3rd party aircraft with data kindly provided by enthusiasts here.
  25. One week on and no reply. I think you have your answer. The only interaction from Christian and Judith is to bring the servers back online when they go down. My own ticket is now several months old and despite assurances from Judith it would be answered by Christian it remains outstanding.
