  1. Dynamic Friction

    Thanks Pete. Xander
  2. Hello, I tried searching the forums and the net without result. I remember when v4 came out, the old plugin went out the window. Pete's last comment regarding this I remember was that it was not sure if it would come back as Lockheed keep changing the location of the necessary values. My question is, has this changed at all since? Or has the plugin remained elusive? Contrary to popular belief, the friction model is still bad. You still need way more thrust than in real life, and the old plugin was a true Godsend back in it's day. Kind Regards, Xander
  3. Thanks Pete! Amazing product. Xandee
  4. Pete, I'm still pretty new (2 days) at FSUIPC calibration and so I have not read up on all the differences. But what did the trick on the 747 and that didn't need to be done on none of the other axes mentioned above was to instead of sending the setting to FS as normal axis I chose to Send Direct To FSUIPC Calibration. It was probably because I don't yet understand the difference between these two. So when I sent it directly to FSUIPC Calibration, selected Rev. and the calibrated the axis it started operating normally. i.e. First inch of travel arms the spoiler, on the ground, full axis travel is full spoiler travel. And when airborne, the axis moves to the FLT DET and stops (at around 60% mark). Further movement of the axis towards fully deployed makes no difference. For those interested, all my throttle, propeller and spoiler axis assignments have been deleted from P3D v4 All is solved, thanks for the input. Xander
  5. Pete, I'm testing airborne. I will try to reset the calibration and set the Rev before assigning Pete. Thanks, Xander
  6. Hey Guys, I am hoping someone can help me on this. I have a Saitek Yoke and Throttle setup. I fly the PMDG 747, 777 and DC-6. As such it has now become a necessity to use FSUIPC to map the throttle quadrant to match my aircraft. I have now managed to: 1. For the DC-6, match the three axes to ENG 1/2, ENG 3/4 and the Master Prop Lever 2. For the 777, match the three axes to ENG1, ENG2 and Spoiler Lever 3. For the 747, match the three axes to ENG 1/2, ENG 3/4 and Spoiler Lever <-- HOWEVER..... The 747 spoiler range has a flight detent tab that seems to throw my spoiler axis completely out of whack. If I just assign the axis it works correctly, but it is not reversed. With the lever to max the spoiler correctly moves down to the Flight Detent. Bring the lever down to min and the spoilers jump from the Flight Detent back up to the Retract position. As you can see, it needs reverse sensing. To do this I have to go to Joystick Calibrations under spoilers, and select "Rev.". This does the trick on the 777 which does not have a Flight Detent setting. On the 747, the spoiler lever suddenly acts completely out of whack, floating about between RET and FLT DET. settings. Anyone have a clue what I can do to solve this? Thanks, Xander

    Of course Nicola. I do. I will maintain the existing installs for now and make sure I have the PC setup for the long run. When the new version with the 4K scaling fix comes out I will send a request. Thanks.

    Hi Nicola, I will try again. I believe the problem lies with the fact that I have updated my main PC 3 times since I purchased the product and it may still be seeing them as active. If it doesn't work I'll just use the activation on my laptop for now. Maybe there's a wak to reset activations or something? Xander

    Nicola, I have reinstalled Windows on my PC, and I don't have any activations left. I run TOPER on 3 PC's. What can be done?

    Nicola, as the size limit is small I have uploaded the pic on Mega. The link is: https://mega.nz/#!7gM0CTRD!JOovnicWMae51Ik_o34LViFEjVug4Jkn1TrOTIBXE9s Regards, Xander

    Yes Nicola, I installed the original from SimMarket. The screen is nice and big. Then when I install the latest version, the window is very small with unreadably small letters. Only readable if I sit very close to my TV (computer monitor viewing distance) but no scaling is applied to the Window after the update. Xander

    Hello Nicola, I have two questions for you. 1. I have SimMarket v3.0 exe file. I read various places that you have to install all updates afterwards to make sure all patches are applied. I do not have access to all updates since only 3.3.12 is posted. So I install v3.0 exe and 3.3.12 on top and that is all? 2. Because I have a 4K TV at 225% scaling. There was an update that specifically corrected the small window problem of TOPER. Of course that update is not there. I still have this problem. My TOPER window is VERY small with small letters. Can you help? p.s. Windows 10 64Bit Xander
