  1. 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    Would I be correct in thinking that a possible solution for the out-of-date FS data would be to make FSC read from the same source as the AFcads - the scenery file.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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. You dont say if you fly FS9 or X but Simwings has a old version of LEMG for FS9, from 2004.

    http://secure.simmarket.com/simwings-malaga-2004.phtml

    Obviously it is very out of date but is still decent but it doesnt have the detail or taxture of todays payware.

    If memory serves me corectly the Spanish airports that have been updated or re-made since then are LEMD, LEPA, LEBL, LEBB, LXGB (always Spanish in my book, despíte traditional British chest-thumping) and a couple of the Canaries.

    Have you asked over at Aerosoft if there are any plans for a remake?

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. Hey guys - thanks to whomsoever posted the scenery link, and I am really interested to hear if any of you actually bought Courchevel (or others) for FS9 - and what your opinion of the scenery is.

    I know the good, the bad and the ugly that has been produced for FS9 over the years (I dont have FSX and only if FS9 disapears off the chart or I win the Lottery will I buy it) so please tell.

    And can YOU land there - flying what aircraft?

    Thanks

    Nicholas

  9. After about 90 minutes in flight with complex aircraft and scenery, my rig blackscreens with "Cache Directory Error. Cached file xxx missing...." - telling me to "click ok".

    I click though more than 30 files given as "missing", then the flight would reappear until a second later - more errors and another thirty or more clicks, until either my rig or I would give up.

    The missing files are of all kinds from all kinds of sceneries, and oddly rarely are close to where I am flying: I might be in Venezuela and get errors for Bucharest and Edinborough. I have checked the installed sceneries against my backups and they appear to be complete.

    After the first series of these errors I reinstalled FS but they continued. I recently had a period when they were accompanied by NetFramework and Visual+++ errors, but those have now stopped.

    Is this an FS issue, an XP issue or a hardware issue?

    (Memcheck=OK, hardisc check not done cos I cant figure out how to use MHHD)

    Thank you

    Nicholas

    (Yes, I have posted this in other forums: I am looking for help from as many sources as possible.)

    FS9.1 / XP Sp3 / E8500 / Intel D633BU / 8800GTS 512 / 4Gb Corsair w/Switch & Userva / 750w Psu

  10. The reason for the short runtime is that this was the third time I had not gained a connection and I ran it in order to produce the logs - nothing else - so yes, I was impatient and jolly cross.

    "Why is your heading "Address family not supported by protocol family"? You aren't using the IPX protocol are you? In current Microsoft operating systems that protocol is optional. You'd need to explicitly install it if you wanted to use it."

    I have no idea "why". I recently had an OS reinstall by a qualified tech so perhaps he put it there unbeknownst to me. Is it wrong, or just unnecessary?

    That being said I have had WideFS running correctly since that OS reinstall.

  11. Good day Peter

    WideFS was working fine then after a few days away I get no connection:
