  1. Every time I try and load any CRJ, P3DV4.5 freezes up and gives me the notification that the program has stopped working. I reviewed it in the Windows Event viewer and it has something to kernalbase.dll. The planes will not ,load at all. I'm running Windows 7. Thanks!
  2. The insertion tool worked! Thank you for your help!
  3. I'll look into this with ORBX. But, why can't I move LHR above the ORBX products in the scenery library? It's locked in a position below them.
  4. I have LHR installed, along with England Region, True Earth GB South, GB Libraries and Open LC Europe, from ORBX, all installed as well. This is what I get. I have disabled some ORBX BGL files. But, the ORBX files are all above LHR in the scenery library. And I can't move LHR above the ORBX files. Does anyone have any thoughts?
  5. I cannot find the A330 folder in SimObject/Airplanes. Is there another location where that folder might be?
  6. Version is the only one available to me in my instant download section. How do I download
  7. I was flying the A319 tonight and had a speed issue on takeoff. Advanced the throttles to Flex and lifted off the ground. The speed stayed right around 140 and the plane began to stall. I recovered by moving the throttles to TOGA and lowering the nose. Which was an interesting save, as that normally doesn't work. The plane just crashes. I love flying the Airbuses, but this problem makes me want to just put her in the hangar and forget it. Or, buy the other A320 product. I hope there's a solution very soon....
  8. I, too, am having speed issues with version So, how does one "turn on logging." And then, where do I find these logs to view afterwards? Just an aside question, when the bus hits the top of climb, is the indication on the ECAM supposed to turn from "CLB" to "CRZ?" Or, is that just an indication of the throttle detent setting? Thanks!
  9. I'm getting dark textures in half the cockpit.
  10. Will Aerosoft be sunseting AES and integrating SODE into past, present and future products?
  11. I was able to get the handicapped person on the bus fine. But, when I reached the stop that he wanted to get off at, I couldn't get the wheelchair over to the exit. He just wouldn't move. How do I get this person off the bus?
  12. How do you turn on/off the warning lights on the tow truck?
  13. I have the same problem with a virus and it looks like I'm going to have to re-install my OS. So, I am in the process of backing up files. What is the best way to backup AES, so that once I re-install FS, AES will recognize all my credits and airports?
  14. Since the development of AES (which I love), it seems that developers are no longer willing to include their own active gate docking systems for FS9 scenery. Is it because they want us to spend more money by buying AES credits? I don’t know, but I have some examples of how that may just be the case. I bought the Sim-wings EGLL package, which I think is just amazing. I would say I spent about $30 on it. Only when I had it installed, I realized that in order to get the piers to dock, I had to purchase AES. That was my introduction to this wonderful program. But, I spent $22 on those initial credits. So, I now have the fully functional EGLL add-on for $52! How many mega-airports am I willing to pay that much money for? Guess what? Not many! Especially when Sim-wings have their own active gate technology. It came with the Paris-De Gaulle airport package, before AES was created. So, why couldn’t they use it with EGLL? I’m sure the technology could have been updated. FSDT is certainly putting out their own high quality airports. None of them have docking gates, unless you purchase AES credits. Now, I may be a little off on my facts here, so please correct me if I’m wrong. But, I understand that FSDT is a descendant from Cloud 9? And Cloud 9 has active docking technology. See where I’m going here? And finally there’s Imaginesim, who has included an active docking system for every one of their airports…until now. I noticed that it is conspicuously absent from their new KIAD package. I consider myself a purist. That means if the piers don’t dock, then what’s the point of buying the airport? And if I have to purchase AES credits, on top of the already $30 plus dollars, then what’s the point in buying the airport? I’m sure there will be the argument that the migration to FSX has already moved forward, so we should feel lucky to even get an FS9 version. But, and this is just one man’s opinion; I feel that FSX is turning out to be the new FS2000. Meaning it’s just a marginal stepping stone to the next big version. And considering that Microsoft has all but shut down the Flightsim division, there is going to be a long wait for the next FS. So, FS9 still has a lot of life left yet! I’m not knocking anyone’s sceneries. I love them all! I wish I could have them all! However, I am questioning the development and pricing philosophies more than anything. And, I am wondering just how much people are willing to pay now for fully functional airport add-ons? Any thoughts would be most welcome. Discuss…. Note: this has been posted to a number of forums.
  15. I've been out of town for a few days, but I wanted to let you know that everyhting seems to be working fine. Thanks for your help!
  16. Okay, it looks like KDEN is working fine with this new patch. Thanks! However, KLGA is not working. The air bridges do not move into the aircraft door. However, everything else moves in fine. I have installed 1.99a.
  17. I'm talking about 1.99a. I installed it and it didn't work for KLGA. I will install the DEN patch and see if that works. Thanks!
  18. Regardless of gate or aircraft being used, I cannot seem to be able to push back at all. When it is requested, the tug does move to the front of the plane, but then nothing happens. I even pulled into a gate once and the air bridge extended all the way out to the rear door almost. That was one long bridge! But, it hasn't done that since. Also, at gate T-22 at KLGA, when I'm starting at the gate, the air bridge doesn't move at all. Everything else moves into position though. And when I arrived at that gate, the air bridge did work then. I have never had any problems with AES until this version. I did install the new installer, but these problems weren't fixed. Thanks for your help.
  19. Well, it seems that AES has somehow deactivated itself from both my ORD and LHR airports. And those are just the airports I've tried. On the runway, I do still get the "centerline" sounds. And when I hit Cntrl-Shift-W, I get the menu to call a "follow me" car. But, that's where it all ends. I cannot get any other function to activate. When sitting at the gate, hitting Cntrl-Shift-W does nothing. No menus pop up at all. Any ideas? Many thanks!
  20. I have installed the FlyTampa KBOS freeware scenery, but I cannot activate AES for that airport. It doesn't even show up on my list of installed add-ons on my AES installer. Please advise. Thanks.
  21. What about a dual core machine for FS9 and FSX? At this point, I am more sure that I'll be running FS9, rather than FSX. I may give FSX a skip all together. I have so many FS9 addons, including a lot of Aerosoft product. So, I'd rather build a system that easily handles FS9. What AMD processor do you suggest for FS9? Is there an Intel chip that's just as good? Are 2 gigs of RAM sufficient? And what graphics card should I look at? I like the GeForce line. Thanks.
  22. Mathjis: Before FSX was released, you posted a thread about the specs you used on a computer that made the program run smoothly. I can't seem to find it anymore. I am about to build a computer from scratch and would like some recommendations on what hardware I should get to make not only FSX run smoothly, but FS9 as well. I am tired of low frame rates. I run add-on aircraft, add-on airports, addon AI, Active Sky, FDC and an ATC program all at the same time! So, I need power! BTW, this will probably be a Windows XP machine. I will continue to use FS9 for the time being, but will probably upgrade FSX eventually. So, I need something to handle both. Do you have any suggestions?
