  1. "Cannot Find FSX.cfg" error with FSX-Steam

    It was the Communicator but never mind, no help needed now . I figured a way to workaround and the program is functioning properly.
  2. All these manuals are written for the earlier version (5.4 I think). They do not appear to be very applicable to this version. Are there current operating manuals for v6? I have the program up and running on FSX-SE but wish to know a bit more about what I can do with it. As an example: ALL AI aircraft on final approach have landing gear fully retracted. It does not extend until the plane has skidded to a full stop. Can that be fixed or is it a bug in the program? Neal H
  3. "Cannot Find FSX.cfg" error with FSX-Steam

    My request for help was 13 days ago....that;s a bit more than a week.
  4. "Cannot Find FSX.cfg" error with FSX-Steam

    No help? I have run out of things to try. Why no support? This is forcing me to go back to Ultimate Traffic 2. Wish I could get my money back.
  5. "Cannot Find FSX.cfg" error with FSX-Steam

    I have studied the user manual and faqs but do not have a clue about how to fix it. My PC has the Steam version only. All the steps for locating My Traffic and FSX worked correctly but after that I am stumped. Help appreciated. Thanks in advance Neal Howard Btw...Please excuse/delete the post by CubPilot. I erroneously created another account ......DOHHHH Win7 Ultimate 64 Bit
  6. I bit the bullet a few days ago, set Ult traffic 2 sliders to 0, and installed My Traffic 6 Professional. After four days I must rate MT6 as A+ software. It was easy to install, and I found the instructions to be clear. The traffic is very nice at all the airports tested.I never tried to set scedules for AI before but it is a bit of fun with MT6 and even I could do it first try. There are still a few features that are not unclear (use of TrafficX or UT2 schedules for example). UT 2 is still on my PC so does that mean that parts of it can be used with MT 6? In the meantime, it is nice to see some new "faces" on the ramp and no noticeable drop in framerates. I feel almost guilty for getting such a nice package for only $20 Best Regards Neal H. Sorry for the large fonts but I can barely see the size 14.
  7. I have use Ult Traffic for many years but wonder if perhaps it is time to try something new. It is a big leap for me. I assume that UT2 cannot be disabled while trying MT6(?) About the only info I find re MT6 is in a couple of forums...it is too new for much else. I purchased MT6 a couple of days ago but have not installed it yet. Will some of you with experience with both programs please give me some advice. MT6 looks REALLY good but I am too old* to start "tuning" FSX again. Moderator: If this post is inappropriate then please remove it with my apologies in advance. Regards to all Neal Howard * my username is a good indication of what "old" means :(
  8. Simcon - Simconnect Approach System

    This program has a LOT of great features even if you do not want to create a virtual runway. Along with Cockpit Status these two provide a tremendous amount of flight info. That, along with the capability to operate switches and enter radio freqs., etc are just a few. PKUS, it can be done from a networked PC via FSUIPC. Give them a try Neal H
  9. Is the order of items in the dll.xml important? I noticed that some add-ons rearrange the listing. In particular, should fsuipc be last? Thanks Neal H
  10. Modifier button?

    Brubaker: "Please enjoy my $40" Bad enough that are you ungrateful for the help you received. ...You will soon realize that your $40 was well spent on a great bit of software. Apologies in order. Neal H
  11. On your "Settings" main page there is an option to save your current settings. Of course it saves ALL your settings, not just controls. Neal H
  12. Pete: Don't think I'm crazy please. Just turned on my PC, loaded FSX, followed your instructions, and Macros created as they should. So...I loaded the Majestic Dash 8 and now Mouse Macros work with it also. Ditto the other add-ons I mentioned. When this problem appeared I did restart FSX but that did not help. Never occurred to me that a PC restart would do anything. Anyhow, thaks for such a quick response. Neal H
  13. OOps, I had forgotten that about defaults. I tried first with Majestic Dash 8 (which worked properly before the reinstall). Also tried Milviz 737, PMDG 737, Carenado Centurion but could not get the green/red title box. Before each aircraft was loaded I "ended Macro Making", clicked OK then reopened fsuipc to enable the "Create..." What am I doing incorrectly? Thanks Neal H Btw,,,there are no Mouse Events listed in the log for the add-ons
  14. Never had a problem before but after a reinstall of FSX the Create Mouse macro function will not work as before. Latest version (4.91) and everything good except for that one thing. Tried with several plane, default and add-ons, with same outcomes. TheFSUIPC4.log for rhe last trial shows mouse events that correspond to switches being thrown in the Baron. They surely look like mouse Macros but no red/green popups when they are activated. Perhaps I set something incorrectly and the dialogue boxes are blocked? 35131 Aircraft="Beech Baron 58 Paint1" 35131 LUA.1: LINDA:: Aircraft: Beech Baron 58 Paint1 35131 LUA.1: LINDA:: Aircraft module detected: FSX Default 35162 LUA.0: LINDA:: AivlaSoft library loaded... 35178 LUA.0: LINDA:: FSX standard library loaded... 35178 LUA.0: LINDA:: IAO library loaded... 35178 LUA.0: LINDA:: RealityXP library loaded... 35193 LUA.0: LINDA:: A2A MAP library loaded... 37143 Weather Mode now = Theme 37627 Weather Mode now = Global 40700 LUA.0: LINDA:: Module: FSX Default Started... 40700 LUA.0: LINDA:: Ready to go, Captain! 40700 LUA.0: LINDA:: 68328 Mouse Event=66293 71729 Mouse Event=66287 75629 Mouse Event=66241 79014 Mouse Event=66363 80465 Mouse Event=66364 200679 Mouse Event=66241 202957 Mouse Event=66363 204267 Mouse Event=66364 205812 Mouse Event=66293 Your help appreciated.

  15. These macros are invaluable when doing almost anything with the Majestic Dash 8. However, there are a couple (at least) of things that I ame uncertain about. 1. Can a MCRO file be edited in the same manner as a .cfg file? I would like to correct a few typos and remove some entries that I set up poorly. 2.When typing the name of a mcro, whenever one of the "view" keys is used it also changes the view. The "A", "S", "W", etc. are used a lot so my views are frequently jumping. Is there a way to prevent this? Thanking in advance for some help. Regards to all Neal H
