  1. What are the callsigns involved please? Can you show me how those look in your airline database? Thanks Simon
  2. This does sound familiar. Which updates have you installed on STB? Thanks Simon
  3. That's just configuration. Which ones?
  4. At the present time we are not compatible with MakeRwys V4.891, which is available from Pete Dowson's website. If you experience this problem, please use an older version of MakeRwys such as that supplied by STB (V4.871). Longer term, I will address this issue in an STB update. Please see the following for the information on the underlying change: And the error from STB/STB-DS if you do use the new version:

Thanks Tak for drawing my attention to this issue. Simon
  6. Hi Tak It seems to be something to do with the airport elevation being a decimal number rather than a whole number. Can you send me your runways.xml file please, found in your Prepar3D installation folder? Thanks Simon
  7. Hi Aussie That's one awesome looking setup! Other customers have achieved a vertical (or "portrait") format for STB by physically rotating the screen through 90 degees so it is taller than it is wider. Then in windows, they rotate the display so that Windows draws everything in the correct direction. It's in Display Settings, "Display Orientation". You can try the portrait related values until your desktop looks the way you want it. Not sure how STB will react initially if previously used in Landscape, but it will present in portrait to match what Windows is doing. Then it's just a case of resizing the window and the columns within to match your requirements. Looking forward to a picture of this setup with a portrait presentation! Thanks Simon
  8. Hi Brian This one's an easy one, there is only one version of STB for Prepar3D V4. And that is "STB V4 for Prepar3D V4". In the more recent updates, I've added quite a bit of support for AIG, because I love their stuff to! Thanks Simon
  9. That's the correct procedure. You can add the entries from scratch, or you should be able to right click on the flight concerned on STB and choose configure aircraft from the menu. The latter option is a slightly quicker way of doing it.
  10. It's unfortunate that some AI mdoels tie the spoilers to the flap settings, they should be independent systems? In any case, the flaps handle is the appropriate value to set and it's important to set it against the aircraft involved. After making such a change, restart the simulator to ensure the new handle value is being sent at the appropriate time. If it still does not work, send me a verbose trace please with a screenshot of STB showing which aircraft it is. Simon
  11. It's most likely a problem in the simulator itself or with the AI you are using. STB is driving this capability through SimConnect, which is suppose to provide a level of isolation between Prepar3D and me. That said, we don't live in a perfect world so while the simulator should never crash in response to a SimConnect request, it sounds like it is. In any case, the only people whom can fix this is Lockheed Martin, and the only way we could get them to even look at it is to reproduce the problem in a predictable way, and then without any other addons apart from STB (including AI packs). However it does not sound like you've been able to find that. Maybe there's a AI model in the background of your AI View that is causing a problem, perhaps through an invalid aircraft.cfg or MDL file? Very difficult to tie such things down. The only other thing I can suggest is whatever AI view you are using, try one of the others and see if that is any more relable. For example is it always the default View AI command, or the Extended AI Views or the observer based views where this happens? Simon
  12. I've updated STB with the latest content for AIG, specificaly the "One Click Installer (OCI) method" however it should be relevant no matter how you use your AIG Traffic. This is up to date for all airlines up to Monday night, 16th September 2019. As AIG continues to add new airlines, I'll follow with STB. This will eventually make it's way into a regular STB product update, but I imagine the next one of those is some way off. How to configure STB with Additional AIG Content Simon
  13. Flaps handle zero should fix it. However you've already tried that, though you don't say how. Try setting the default value to zero: 1) Settings Notebook 2) Commands Tab 3) Default Departure Flaps Handle Setting -> 0 4) Check you are not overriding this with a value specific to 777: a) Objects Tab b) Edit Aircraft radio button c) Find any 777 entries in the list, and make sure departure flaps handle is also zero for those. 5) Save Settings, restart STB 6) Observe an AI aircraft at pushback and see what happens. It is important you start watching BEFORE TAXI. Thanks Simon
  14. OK, there's something curious about the way this aircraft is responding to SimConnect commands. If this fails even with "flaps position 0" set in the settings notebook for the aircraft concerned, I can probably change the code not to set the flaps at all when we are configured with 0. As it stands, we send a flaps command with whatever the configured value is. I'll look into it. Thanks Simon
