    Runway numbers discrepancy

    I am not going to over-worry about this any more: as long as I can find an active RW and punch it into my FMS I will find a way to get wheels on the ground. These discrepancies are just another little niggle that I will have to work around. Thanks for the ideas.

    Runway numbers discrepancy

    Thank you guys for joining in and clearing up my doubts. Would I be correct in thinking that a possible solution for the out-of-date FS data would be to make FSC read from the same source as the AFcads - the scenery file. Even if the scenery were not regularly updated (as is suggested about UK2000) at least it would mean that the data would be in synch. If this were so then I wonder why FSC was not made that way - but of course I may be off the mark there.

    Runway numbers discrepancy

    Sorry Volker but nothing you said answers any question, not really. I dont understand why you are mentioning FS9 data. Does FSC get its data from FS or from the installed Airac? The Airac is 11.13. The data presented on the map differs from the data presented in the Sid/Star box. That suggests to me that the map and the Sid/Star list get their data from different sources. Is that right? Is that why you mention FS9 data?
  4. XP Sp3 / FS9.1 / FSC 8.6 and same Db / FSUIPC 3.9.9.0 / WideFS 6.7.8.0 EGLC UK2000 demo - the map shows runways 10 and 28 and the Sid/Star dropdown shows 09 and 27.. Why is this?
  5. Thank you Volker. Its actually such a simple and obvious cause/solution that I should have thought of it myself. Regards, Nicholas
  6. Following a clean FS9 re.install I decided to try FSC 9.1 to see if I could justify spending $ to upgrade from 8.6. I made a separate install, leaving my 8.6 untouched. I ran the FS9 database correctly and the install appears to be fine. However, when opening the program it says that the FSX path and database is incorrect., and the program closes.

    VHHX in 8.6

    I am absolutely certain that I had Sid & Stars for Fly Tampas VHHX but now the box is blank. I have the floowing info for FS9 and aircraft: -"VHHX.txt" procedure file -WPNAVAPT.TXT Hong Kong VHHX31 10930316 22.304401 114.216064109.9031600015 Hong Kong VHHX13 10930136 22.324850 114.193176111.9013600015 - Airports.dat VHHX-22.316667 114.203333 but I have nothing for FSC. What do i need? thanks Nicholas

    FScene 4X in FS9

    I habe another question about the 4x packs available on Simarket. Are the continents included in each pack separate installers? Can I install just the continents I want or are they an all-in-one installer? What I want is FScene texture on one or two continents, and other textures in other places, so that "my world" looks different in different places.

    FScene 4X in FS9

    Can you please explain if the textures for FS9 included in the the 4X packs are NEW for FS9 or the original FS9 FScene textures. I was looking at the product page on Simarket and wasnt sure. Thanks

    Checkpoint Ding

    v8.6 on WideFS I know its in the manual somewhere but I just cant find it: how to turn off Checkpoint Ding and stop FSC popping up in front of my other programs when crossing a checkpoint. Thanks.

    Sid Stars wont show in select box

    I am grateful for your reply but I dont see the connection between the post reporting RunTime Erros and mine. But if you say so I will "download Revision 2" but I would be grateful if you would tell me Revision 2 of what, and from where. Thank you Nicholas
  14. FS2004 FSUIPC 3,98 FSC v8.6 Download XP Navigraph 1104 gives me Sid Star for SBFZ for PMDG/LVLD etc: I have exactly the same database installed in FSC but no Sids Stars for SBFZ show in the Select box. (Whether there are others "missing" from FSC I dont know - I havent checked.) How come the same database gives different results, and how can I include SBFZ (and others) in FSC? Thanks
  15. Hello Peter I have been using the CH yoke, pedals and throttle quadrant calibrated with FSUIPC since 2004 without problems but over the last week or so I am experiencing problems with the Elevator axis that manifests in some payware aircraft but not in others. In the Axis Assignment page I see in the "set minimum change here" boxes about 50% of the range of the numerical values - approx -16384 to approx 8448 but in the the Axis Calibration page in the boxes under the Reset button page I see no numerical change at all: throughout the full back and forth movement of the yoke the numbers shown are static and completely out of whack; for example 5721 to 5371 In the aircraft visual model (this appears in quality payware jets but not in other A/C) the Elevator movement is severely limited - lots of up but no down - and as I said - no movement in the numerical values in the "Set" section on the left. This problem is new and all other axes (Aileron and Gear up/down on the yoke and all pedal and quadrant) work correctly. I am completely at a loss as to why this is happening; all my configs are the same as ever (I backup and reinstall the FSUIPC .ini file after any OS or FS installs) and have no idea whether this is an A/C, FSUIPC or human problem. Regards Nicholas
