  1. Aaaargh! I can see what I HAVE NOT done Otto! I didn't use the "lateral" arrow keys to move to SIDs and STARs. I guess its been a while since I used this aircraft and to be honest my ageing brain is still in the days of the Extended versions which didn't have that method. So sorry to have wasted your time and thank you so much for giving up your Sunday to help me. Tony
  2. Sorry what I meant was there were NO SIDs or STARs at all at either the departure or arrival airports
  3. No problem. I just flew from Faro to Gatwick. Out of Faro I could choose runway 28 and my plan had EVURA as the first waypoint. No SIDs were available. Into Gatwick I could choose 26L and the VIA option gave me WILLO which indeed gave me the correct course onto the ILS via MAY. What I could not get was any STAR option leading onto WILLO from my final waypoint of OTMET.
  4. I have just reinstalled the above in a general reinstallation of P3Dv4.5. I thought I checked all the right boxes and did a specific Navigraph update. I also checked that the latest data was in the A3XX/Navigraph folder. The aircraft MCDU however shows no SID or STAR options only runway and VIA options for the arrival airport. I feel sure that there must be a box I haven't checked somewhere but simply can't find it. I did check the Navigraph option in the Configurator I found from the Start Menu options but that hasn't helped. Any thoughts gratefully receive
  5. Just to go back to the original reason for this thread. I managed my flight yesterday without a problem but turned off Active Sky (which I missed) and any of those sceneries I wasn't using. Even so over Northern Europe (probably because of Orbx EU the CPU was spiking up to 100% then settled down to 20 to 50%. I tried a flight before switching off Active Sky and the other sceneries where the CPU was running 90 to over 100% once in the cruise over Northern European mainland and ultimately crashed. My GPU was fine with constantly around 20 to 30%. Now I didn't have this pr
  6. Thanks Mathijs that again is a very sensible view. I was in contact with a well known developer (not one of yours but equally well known) who made it very clear that certain major scenery projects will not now go forward until 2020 is released. It seems to very much reflect the feelings of so many of us on the "customer" side who have spent already large sums of money "upgrading" from FSX to P3D or X Plane and now see this apparently amazing product coming out next year (from past experience I guess we all expect that to be the end of that year rather than the beginning!). So look
  7. Thank you Mace that is really helpful. My "original" CPU is an Intel(R) Core (TM) i7 CPU 3.50 Ghz with 24 Gb RAM. I know my GPU is man enough as it is a fairly new NVidia GeForce GTX 1060 with 6 Gb memory. I am not a techie unfortunately and like everyone else right now I am loathe to spend more money on my flight sim PC until MSFS 2020 comes out and we can all see just what our future platform demands are going to be. However if it needs upgrading then that is what I will have to do. Thanks again chaps. This is really helpful stuff.
  8. Thanks Hans I did upgrade my PC this year but kept the old CPU so it could be that I suppose. I am still using 4.4. Didn't upgrade to 4.5 as yet! Tony
  9. I have made plenty of flights in the CRJ with no problem except the occasional hanging around busy scenery like Like but it usually recovers ok after a short time. For the second time though it has completely crashed P3Dv4 with an error saying "Stopped working". I was an hour or two into the flight and I did notice beforehand when looking at an external view the scenery from 35,000 ft did look unusually blurry. Perhaps this is a clue? I am really not technical at all when it comes to PC stuff but I did get this from my W10 "Event Viewer". Any help gratefully
  10. Good grief your passengers must have a long walk to the aircraft! Sorry Emanuel - English sense of humour!
  11. Hi Hans All is good now. I actually downloaded the latest AIRAC and manually placed the contents into the correct folders. After this all the SIDs and STARs were there. Still missing a lot of airport stands and gates but as I say that isn't really a problem as I can use the last position reference into the GPS. Thanks for the chat and help! Tony
  12. Thanks Hans I have and I can only say it didn't work for me today. I will try again tomorrow. I did look in depth at the relevant Nav Data file in the Digital Aviation folder and I could see LOGA1H in there. I have updated the AIRAC this afternoon and we will see what happens! I will report back accordingly. Thanks again.
  13. I have now become very used to this aircraft and fly it a lot. However I have noticed numerous times that the FMC database seems to be missing an awful lot of information. First it started with the vast majority of airport stands were "not found in database" which honestly wasn't a big problem and easily overcome. However lately I have noticed that many of the SID and STAR options from and to airports are simply missing. One classic today was going into Heathrow from Dutch airspace the very famous LOGAN1H arrival simply wasn't in the database options which meant lookin
  14. Oh I knew it Romano I just didn't action it!
  15. Yes doing the flight now and behaving perfectly. I know the problem (apart from me getting old). I have used the Aerosoft Airbuses since the first version and this is the first one that (quite rightly in tune with the real world) requires you to push the ALT knob. The others were always preset. Bad habits!!! Anyway this thread may be useful when someone else does the same thing. I doubt I am alone! Sorry to take up your time but thanks for the help anyway.
