  1. Hi Volker, What can I say, but Thank You. I just don't know how I would get along without FSCmdr and Radar Contact. These new programs just don't hack it as you do. Both of us just need to keep hanging in there. Sincerely, Mike N.
  2. Hello, I couldn't get a screenshot of it; so I am setting it forth: FS Commander C:\FSC9 Simulator Prepar3d C:\LOCKHEED MARTIN\PREPAR3D V4 Prepar3d Flight Plans C:\Users\mbnic\Downloads\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Files When Save/Load is pressed, it saves into FSC as normal. It just doesn't show up in my Prepar3D v4 File I'm wondering if my first entry should be: C:\FSC9\Flightplan\FSC ? Take Care, Mike
  3. Ten months or-so-ago, I finally made a complete transfer over to Prepar3Dv4. Everything went terrific and I was especially happy to have both Radar Contact and FSC working just fine. I installed FSC from SimMarket and it was9.6 as I recall. The only thing different I did was to add a Flight Simulator X Files to my P3Dv4 Files folder. All I did, and still do, is when ever I want to fly one of my old FSX flight plans is I copy the FSX .pln file into my Prepar3Dv4 Files folder and I'm good to go. I could also add a new FSC flight plan and save it to my Flight Simulators X files folder and then copy it to P3D. ( I have completely uninstalled FSX and Steam with a complete REVO deletion.) I only use FSC for route planning so I was happy. For some reason, a month or two ago I couldn't save the new FSC flight plan into FSX or P3D. I have a bunch of flight plans made up that I normally use, but every once in a while I want a new one. So after checking this forum, I downloaded FSC9.75 and checked my FSUIPc5. From reading the 9.75 description, I was under the impression that FSC would load directly into the Prepar3Dv4 files. My current FSC loads are as follows: FS Cmdr: C:\FSC9; Simulator Prepar3D: C:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3Dv4 and Prepar3D Flight Plans: C:\Users\mbcic\Downloads\Documents\ Prepar3dV4 files. So, any advice as to how I can load my new FSC flight plans into my Prepar3Dv4 Files folder will be appreciated.

  4. Recently installed P3D v4.4 along with FSUIPC5. Iv'e installed MakeRws and the Lorby Scenery Export.exe. My main add ons are Radar Contact and Orbix global sceneries (no individual airports). If I understood your directions correctly, the Lorby Scenery Export file automatically takes care of everything. Radar Contact Options has a button to run when ever you change scenery files although now I just click through the windows, and MakeRwys does not run. I'm assuming this is because the Lorby Export file does it automatically. If I assume correctly, then my next question is do I need to manually run the makerunways.exe and or Lorby Export. exe after making a scenery change? P3d is running so good for me I just want to make sure I am doing this correctly. As always, your products and advise are sure appreciated.

    9.8 (answered)

    I just saw that a 9.8 version is available for download. Is this true? Is this the answer for P3D v4.1? Should you uninstall the version you are now using? Mike Nicholson

    Installing MakeRwys in P3d v. 4.1

    Pete, Over the last ten days I have read every line of your directions to especially include the Make Runways PDF about five times over.. I'm sorry that I interpreted the instructions to mean I had to use this add on organizer. Believe me, you have made my day! Life is great again. I will now install this the same way I have been doing since FS2004. Mike
  7. After reading your email to me, I am sorry I asked my question in the P3d forum. First, switching to Windows 10 and P3d v4.1 for the first time on a new computer around three weeks ago has been a shock. I looked at your forum and web site and my understanding was I needed to install FSUIPC 5.1.22 which I did with no problem. I then added my HiFi weather and a couple of my PMDG aircraft and my sim looked and flew great. Since I always fly IFR (Radar Contact) I needed MakeRwys. I understood your directions that 4.1 had changed from 4.0. Also, that I could not just drop the MakeRwys.exe file into P3D, but needed to use the Lorby add on organizer. I messed it up the first time I tried it. Now, I was ready to try it again with MakeRwys v4.8.4.0, but wanted to be sure I was doing it right. Your email stated all I have to do is drop the .exe file into P3dD which I had not read anywhere. That's the way I have done it for years. Nothing would make me happier. If you would clarify this for me, I would sure appreciate it. Thank you, Mike Nicholson
  8. I recently left home on a five month trip. I took my MSI laptop with me so I could spend some quality flight siming time. Days before departure, I had a 500gb SSD hard drive installed into my laptop and moved the old smaller SSD to another drive. Then, I don't know why I agreed, I let them install Windows 10, the latest addition. What a shock how that turned out. (I will keep Windows 7 on my home PC to the last day. I have every thing working now except my old MSFSX program. I didn't have the installation discs, and I ended up installing FSX SE. I installed and ran without problems both the PMDG 737-NGX and the Mystic Dash 8. Both have flown fine. Yesterday, I installed the Eaglesoft Citation X. I had a few things like Reverse Thrust, Co-pilots radios and the ILS approach link not linking with the Auto Pilot Approach although with the AP off I I was able to hand fly it. Then I read a forum thread which said FSX-SE didnot work with FSSUIPC4, and they said that in the Legacy Interfaces Folder you needed to install simconnect.msi into the FSX SP1, FSX-X Pack and FSX RTM folders. Later in the evening I was Googllng all over the .net, and they said to Install FSUIPC4.958 as that was an updated program for linking with FSX-SE. So my question is should I delete Sim Connect and only use your program or leave both programs to fight it out. I'm about ready to email a neighbor and have them go to my home study and send me my discs to reinstall MSFSX. Radar Contact, my weather programs, and terrian programs seem to be working fine. Any comments or advise will be appreciated. Mike Nicholson

    Proper Fsuipc4 Version for MSFSX SE?

    Thank you, Mike

    Proper Fsuipc4 Version for MSFSX SE?

    Pete, I appreciate your quick reply; however, I still need to ask this question. Am I good to go with the .938 version I installed from simMarket or do I need to install the .938a download I read somewhere, but the link did not work? I looked in your Download Link section and did not see anything referring to a .938a download. I did another cross country this afternoon and everything worked fine including Radar Contact. I know Fsuipc has nothing to do with the buckets and RA. I have figured those out as of the present. Again, Thank you for the product and your help, Mike
  11. I recently had to replace my FSX with FSX SE on my traveling laptop. In one forum I read where you needed .938a to update FSX SE properly. On 16 Nov I downloaded a new copy of FSUIPC4.938 ( I saw no "a" version) from simMarket and installed it into the FSX SE modules folder. The only airplane I have installed is my Eaglesoft Citation 750X v2 and it flies fine except the buckets only deploy on the pre-flight run up along with the Radar Altimeter working on departure, but neither work on the approach or landing. The link to the .938a I had does not seem to work. So I guess my question is - Is what was in .938a in the version of .938 I downloaded from simMarket? Thanks, Mike PS: I see FSX SE is using sim connect. Does that conflict with FSUIPC in any way? Thanks, Mike

    Wilco Falcon 7x

    Does anyone know what the status of the Falcon 7x is? I see you can purchase the DVD but not the download. I have not been able to find a review on the airplane, and am beginning to wonder if it has actually been released. Mike

    My FSC Is Locking Up (solved)

    Volker, I have it all working the way I want it now. All set, Thank You for all your help, Mike

    My FSC Is Locking Up (solved)

    Volker, I've re-read this and it seems to me you are saying I have all my flight plans in the old 2004 format, which I'm guessing 8.6 used to send them to FSX. The fact is that all these flight plans were made in 8.6. I wish there was a download for it somewhere as life was good under 8.6. It even updated through Navigraph. All my PMDG aircraft will pick these up in their FMCs. I've always kind of wondered about this as I remember PMDG saying their FMCs would not import from FMC. So now my two 9.6 flight plans will export to my two non-PMDG aircraft. There is a PMDG folder in my FSC flightplans folder. How does that interplay with my flightplans. I need to send an email to PMDG and see where I'm at with this. Basicly, this is the same problem I had with 9.3, but I never had a clue that these flightplans were in 2004 format. Just when you think you're flight simming 5 x 5, you get a new challange. Life is great! Mike

    My FSC Is Locking Up (solved)

    Volker, All my flightplans, a considerable numbrer, were generated with 8.6. I now have two flightplans I generated with 9.5.. This morning I tried a couple of different things: 1. Although I set these two flightplans up with 9.5. and they are displayed in 9.5, I cannot open them in FSC again - it just tells me they are not a FSX flightplan. These should at least open in FSC. 2. Other than my PMDG fleet, I have a Flt 1 Cessna Mustang, and a Lionheart Lear 24B. I can load both of the new flightplans into their GPSs. 3. None of my PMDG aircraft FMSs contain the two new flightplans. Mike
