  1. So I am getitng the old and dreaded hang at bootup of P3D v4.5 at 6 % Traced it down to Trondheim - Activated = hang, deactivate - no hang. I have FT Norway and have allowed the configurator to ammend the conflicting files (which is just the duplicated BGL files). Why is Trondheim doing this ? Is there a fault elsewhere ? I have 30 odd airports and 6 FTX regions installed. This is the only airport doing this. The sim just stalls at 6 percent - forever.
  2. I absolutely agree that things may be tweaked... especially when, or IF, they get a lot back under warranty! After all, a 5 year warranty is both a blessing and a curse.
  3. Excellent preview. Thanks. I wonder if the noise you alluded to could be down to the well known issue - and being an engineer you will be aware of this problem - 'plastic on metal' bearings. My bicycle hubs employ metal against metal which can be greased periodically. I cannot be sure from your pictures but if plastic on metal is used, this will cause uneven friction and worsen over time. As will the noise.
  4. Not sure if I run as Admin. Will check. Thnx
  5. OK - sorted - went into cfg file and set main window to normal. thnx
  6. Of course the target file exists..... they all do ! I am trying to restore a backup, so the all the current xml, exe and cfg files in various locations, will need to be oferwritten by the backed up files...... come on, the logic is pretty straightforward. If the target file did not exist, my installation would really be messed up ! My p3d.cfg or addon.xml file is corrupt, do I restore a backup...... these corrupt files need to be replaced....with the backed up versions. So of course those target files are already there..... so why the error message ? Or doesn't the backup utility actually backup these files ? In which case, it is rather misleading.
  7. Please ? Pretty desperate here ..... no option to adjust profiles or save any changes. The Profile list window (usually left side only), stretches across the entire window.
  8. Can only see list of profiles without the right hand info and detail window - how do yo reset ??? Thnx
  9. Keeps stopping working after 1 or 2 flights. PC reboot necessary. This is since latest update.
  10. Excellent news.... thank the gods of simming ! 😁
  11. Good question, but please guys - a little Psychology 101 - don't start posting huge lists of all this stuff you want to see..... it puts undue pressure on the potential devs. Wait until it is green lit....... for cripes sake. ..... then, once its underway, fill yer boots ! Come on, any10 year old kid knows this: You don't ask Daddy for a 15 foot python straight off the bat. No, you get a tortoise, then a rabbit, then a lizard....... and so on. ....... 'Slowly, slowly catchey monkey' The more 25-point lists of "I want..... x, y, z" I see on these Twotter posts, the more it dismays me, and the less likely it will happen. ..... You don't poke the bear, until the bear shows up. I hope my copious use of metaphor and analogy is not wasted. And, for those of you who already know this, and feel patronised by what I have just written, I wholeheartedly apologise. ...... it is merely for those who just don't 'get it'.
  12. If I'd won the Lotto last night, I'd bung you half a million to make it ! .... but I didn't .... but I can assure you, many of us would be happy to support an 'early access' project. I know you don't like that financial model, but maybe (and with great respect), could I suggest a rethink, and Aerosoft could move with the times ? It is becomming very popular, and often, very successful. Regards.
  13. Hi. So I have over 60 different profiles and scrolling down to find one is extremely annoying. Wouldn't it be a very good idea to be able to have say four or five main headings with a 'plus sign' next to each one when you press on the plus sign it drops down to another four of five, and so on in much the same way as Windows folders works in Explorer. Just an idea hope you can implemented. Thank you E.G. A. Photoscenery 1. Airliners / Propliners i. PMDGs a ... Night with Autogen etc b ... Day ii. Carenado Turboprops a ... Night b ... Day Etc 2. GAs i. A2As a ... Night with Autogen etc b ... Day with Cloudy weather B. Default Scenery C. OrbX scenery Being able to drill through would make the list of presets shorter and tidier, and make specific profiles easier to organise and find. And the end file name wouldn't be as long ! My longest file name for eg. Could be " Orbx England, PMDG 747 400, Nightime, Cloudy, High Traffic, with dynamic lighting." That is a hard profile to find when the left column is only 2 inches wide on my screen !
  14. So presumably, if I were using Active Sky just for the weather engine, that would be set to start along with your first 3 ? Cheers
  15. Hi Alpha. Are you talking about the new REX Environment Force ?
  16. Hi Tom. Well I am not buying it if there will be a problem, as I need Simstarter. The problem is, REX needs to install and inject stuff into P3D. So if it needs to start P3D, in the same was as Simstarter does, there will be a conflict, clearly. Until I know for sure if there is way of getting both to work, I'm waiting. Hopefully someone will find out. Thnx
  17. Hi there. Given that P3D needs to ge started via the Simstarter interface, this appears to cause a conflict with the new REX program, which also states, that it should be used to start P3D. Any advice on this matter ? Thnx
  18. Thankyou. I assume the 4.3 version will work just fine with 4.5 but without the PBR ?
  19. Any ETA on the non PBR version ? Really too shimmery for my taste on the Carenado ATR. Thnx
  20. Where is our Twotter ? Still waiting. Not going anywhere. 😁😁🤔 Do it. I too was reticent for a long time.... but once you try it...... trust me, you will be glad you did. Shadows on the ground, PBR, reflections in the water..... and cockpit shadows are worth the price of admission. Sometimes you have to let go. Kids fly the coup..... life must go on. I would prefer 1 good aircraft and 1 OrbX region in P3D, than a million addons in FSX. And it runs better, and looks better than FSX, on the SAME hardware.
  21. Well yes the target folder will always exist won't it ? I thought the idea of a backup is to restore an earlier version of the files ? The original folder will always be in the correct place...… the p3d.cfg file will always be in the relevant folder, etc etc. If thing go wrong, I just need to restore earlier versions of the files to those folders/ Thnx
  22. Hi. OKAY, just tried - for first time ever - to restore an earlier config. Error. So, I changed the backup location to the local disk, and experimented by making a backup, and then restoring. This was what happened: Image below and text from error: Simstarter.txt
  23. There is no drop down box - I cannot start the program - I have uninstalled and reinstalled. What is going on here please ?
