Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

  1. Thank you, that fixed the problem
  2. Thanks for your reply, I did do that before but when I ran P3D using SimStarter it changed. However, today when I just tried it again it did not change my settings - so the conclusion is that all is OK. However my second issue is whenever I try to load the SimStarter Diff Manager all I get is a blank white minimized screen that does not maximize to the monitor (it stays minimized). So I am not able to check the Diff Manager. Would you let me know how to fix this issue, as previously I always checked the Diff Manager to ensure all was in sync and I miss not being able to either get an automatic report or be able to manually check.
  3. This is a recent issue since P3D v4.5 HotFix. I have been using SimStarter for quite a while and not experienced this issue - whenever I start by using SimStarter, and it loads all my other addons, and when P3D loads and from the Scenario screen I choose Options and then look at Display my settings have changed. It seems that SimStarter keeps changing the Prepar3D.cfg file. I then have to copy over from my extra saved cfg file back to the active cfg file to get my settings back. Whenever I load P3D without SimStarter my settings are never changed. See attached screenshots Second issue is whenever I try to load the SimStarter Diff Manager all I get is a blank white screen that does not maximize to the screen (it stays minimized). So I am not able to check the Diff Manager.
  4. Thank you Peter, I now understand. Happy New Year...
  5. I like to start all my flights with Use System Time. But I notice that SIMstarter does not keep that box checked in the SIMstarter Control Center even though it is Saved that way and also checked as 'ON' in the SIMstarter Configuration Manager. Is it possible to keep the Control Center check mark if you Save it that way?
  6. I have ver. 2.30 which I use with my P3D v4.3, but it has never been acceptable as far as the scenery goes as there are many black textures throughout the area. I know I am not the only one that has experienced these issues, so I would like to know if there is going to be an update to version 2.30 to improve this delightful scenery of Mt. Everest?
  7. Got this message when loading SimStarter - not sure what file or files I am to delete or exactly what to do - I don't want to mess anything up. Please advise, Regards, Dane Watson
  8. It seems that my problem is resolved. HiFi Tech (Active Sky) helped me. It appears that my FSUIPC5 was not updated to the latest, so I did that and SO FAR all seems to be good. I sure wish other add-on companies would do what you do and that is to notify their user when updates are available. Thank you so much for your excellent service and for an awesome product. Dane
  9. OK thanks for all of this. First - I have removed AS from the Run Manager Second - I have activated the Autorun Active Sky in the Extended Settings Third - I have been autorunning REX SkyForce for a long time and never had a problem. I have now discovered that I do not believe this problem is coming from SimStarter because I am having the same issue intermittently when I start P3D and then start AS without using SimStarter. I have contacted AS tech support and they are now looking into it. Will let you know when I get it resolved. Regards, Dane.
  10. Thanks again for your help. Hopefully this is the correct file to post. Let me know if it is the wrong file. Regards, Dane SIMstarter NG.log
  11. This just started to occur tonight. When I load P3Dv4 and other related add-ons through SimStarterNG I am getting a Critical Error for AS16 P3Dv4. If I load P3D and the related add-ons on their own and NOT through SimStarterNG I do not get a Critical Error. I am not sure if this is an AS problem or a SimStarter problem - here is the error message Please review and advise. Regards, Dane. AS16 PD4.txt
  12. Well thanks again Mathijs, I realize this is an old aircraft model by Aerosoft but I thought maybe a folder would be maintained with all issues/fixes for any model - but that's OK. Even though this is an old model I still wanted it in my fleet as I love some of the old historic aircraft - but I had lost hope for a fix until last night when I got a PM from another Aerosoft Forum member (Jim) and he provided me with the solution. So I unzipped his file followed his very simple instruction to change out one file only, then loaded the PBY 6A Civil all was great except for the DME. Then I also read that there is an Aerosoft created typo in the DME gauge number in the 6A Civil Panel.cfg. So I corrected the typo and also created a text document for others with this problem and added the text document to the zip file from the Forum member Jim. All works great. - no need for a refund/credit. This post can now be closed. I am attaching a zip file to this post for you and others to use as needed. Regards, Dane PBY Gauges Fix DME -
  13. OK Mathijs - I did exactly as you said - but it did not make a difference, when the aircraft is loaded and I start up there is still no ADF or DME. As I mentioned before there are two posts on your forum with this issue - were they ever resolved? And if so how? If this cannot be fixed then I respectfully request either a refund or a credit on my account as this aircraft is not complete without ADF and DME functioning. I really would like to have this aircraft in my fleet but not in this condition. Regards, Dane.
  14. Mathijs - I am not understanding when you say - "Could be because you load the aircraft with electrical busses off." Unless there is another place for the electrical busses? Please let me know! I load the aircraft, I follow the checklist - which includes turning on main battery go thru the start process - all engines start well, all lights are on, avionics switch is on, alternator switches are on - basically this aircraft is ready to taxi for takeoff - the steps are very straight forward. See my links to three printscreens for verification. There are documented posts regarding this same problem that I have where you have been involved in replies - but I do not see answers.
