  1. I've just noticed that P3D v3.4 as well as LittleNavMap are showing a strange Registration Code for Ai aircraft. For example, P3D shows 767-300 N?358AN. The only program that shows them correctly is SuperTrafficBoard. Is this a long-standing issue that I've just stumbled across or do I have some type of corruption of my Ai package? I've looked in the relevant aircraft.cfg file but cannot find any reference to registration. How do they get assigned a code and why can’t P3D etc. show a non-ASCII character?
  2. Ai Traffic shows ? in reg name

    Sorry, posted in FAQ forum. Can you move it please? I've just noticed that P3D v3.4 as well as LittleNavMap are showing a strange Registration Code for Ai aircraft. For example, P3D shows 767-300 N?358AN. The only program that shows them correctly is SuperTrafficBoard. Is this a long-standing issue that I've just stumbled across or do I have some type of corruption of my Ai package? I've looked in the relevant aircraft.cfg file but cannto find any reference to registration. How do they get assigned a code?
  3. Thanks for confirming this is a P3Dv4 error Pete. James had posted the problem in the RC Forum but everything was fine with P3D v3.4 and I couldn't reproduce it.
  4. Multiple black aircraft in P3D v3.4 - MT Pro v6.0a

    No, don't think so. It seems worst at KORD and after a minute or so everything is fine. Just a really long time to get everything loaded and stabilised.
  5. Hi again Pete, Problem has been sorted with the help of Lorby. v1.03 of his program is now available.
  6. Hi Pete, I know you're on holiday for a week but wanted to write this whilst it was fresh in my mind. I have MakeRwys 4.8.2.0 and 1.02 of Lorby's Addon Organiser. I have 11 FSDreamTeam and FlightBeam airports but when MakeRwys generates its own MakeRwys_scenery.cfg those entries include \scenery. The downside of this is that programs like EFB won't find the scenery as it looks for a \scenery subfolder in the supplied path. Lorby doesn't think this should be happening but it is. I have to remove \scenery from those entries before EFB reads them correctly. Any thoughts?
  7. Multiple black aircraft in P3D v3.4 - MT Pro v6.0a

    Problem solved. I was still using the MyTraffic entry in scenery.cfg. Instead I followed the instructions in creating an add-on.xml written by Elaine here. It solved the problem of black aircraft but the slow fps problem still exists. Takes over one minute to climb from 12 to 40.
  8. MyTraffic 6a for Prepar3D v3 & v4

    Hi Elaine, Thanks for the detailed instructions. MT6 now running via the add-on file rather than scenery.cfg. Just one point for users of P3D v3.4. The MyTraffic6 folder needs creating in Users\XXXX\Documents\Prepar3D v3 Add-ons
  9. I am investigating why frame rates are so poor at KORD (FSDT) on the initial load and for the next couple of minutes. It's definitely connected to the Ai because with MT6 disabled the frame rates are 60+ as soon as the scenery is loaded. This screenshot taken from the Cub in P3D v3.4 shows several aircraft with blacked-out fuselages. There are more around the terminal buildings, perhaps 15-20 overall. I have plenty of VAS remaining - over 2Gb so it's very difficult to work out what is going wrong. With MT6 scenery enabled the frame rate on first load is around 14 but within two minutes it has climbed to 30-35. Clearly there are two issues here:- 1) Very poor fps whilst the Ai loading is taking place and 2) multiple blacked out aircraft for which I have no answer. The blacked-out aircraft appear at many airports including KLAX and EGLL. Any ideas what's gone wrong?
  10. BA777 disappeared when taxiing in. Why?

    Thanks Burkhard, will do.
  11. Flying Concorde from EGLL to Barbados (TBPB) I overtook a BA777 during the descent. After taxiing to a gate and parking I looked out for him. Around 10 minutes later he landed and turned on to a taxiway towards the terminal. But then something strange happened. He just disappeared. Why? Why fly all that way and then when so close to the terminal would FSX (or something else) delete the aircraft? My sim is FSX:SP2.
  12. Changing text colour in LUA

    Woops! :)
  13. Changing text colour in LUA

    Hi Pete, I understand hex and the base is 16. A=10, B=11 and so on. I was mistakenly thinking the max would be 12 and not 16. Got it now, thanks.
  14. Changing text colour in LUA

    Hi Pete, Thanks for your answer. So it's not necessary to convert to decimal. Do you have a link to a calculator that would give the correct value for each colour? I'm really struggling to find anything. LATER: I should be able to adapt the values from RGB calculators. So if yellow is 255,255,0 would that presumably convert to 0CC0.?
  15. Hi Pete, As you know I'm using your lua script running on a WideClient PC to show fps, remaining VAS and Ai Count. I have transferred the file to my laptop and want the text colour to stand out a bit more but I'm struggling in successfully changing the relevant command. It's light green at present as shown in this line... wnd.textcol(w, 0x06c0) This corresponds to decimal 1728 but I cannot see how that number ends up as light green. I have searched the web for help but all I keep finding are RGB values that will give a certain colour. For example, blue is 0,0,255 Can you help please?
