Re: Cabin is too warm

I'm not sure what GSX might do if you request push back with only one engine running; I don't have it. Typically I'll start all four engines before requesting pushback, and I usually wait for them to get to operating temperature. I've seen advice to use only the inboard engines to taxi, leaving the ...

Sorry about the lost passenger! That is some simulation.
Here's the entire story of that:

Re: Cabin is too warm

Do not start engine 1 or 2 before you finish boarding and the cabin is secure. I left all the engines running on the Stratocruiser once during unboarding to keep the plane cool and lost a passenger. If you start engine 4, it is enough to get the cabin cool. The FE will take care of it. You may get c...

Re: P40 input configurator not responding on yoke buttons

I had the same problem, and I do not use FSUIPC. The button would work on one flight, not work on another. This was not the first time the configurator did not work on an A2A aircraft. I eventually gave up on it and changed the settings to not need the <strikeout>manual pump</strikeout> electric pum...

Re: Connie will not autostart

If I remember right, the inboard tanks must have as much or more fuel than the outboard tanks or the FE gets confused and won't work the fuel valves correctly. In other words, fill the inboard tanks first, then the outboard tanks, and do not land if either outboard tank has more than 900 gallons of ...

Re: FS2020 Bug in FSX

This sounds for all the world like an Out Of Memory error. Please note that you will NOT always get the OOM dialog when this happens. This is a reason why it will happen in FSX and P3D up to v3, but not in P3Dv4 and above which is 64 bit. Even then it's probably better not to switch between any two ...

Re: FSX Gold to FSX 2020 transition

Thanks, Skycat. I'm personally holding out for P3D to include streaming scenery. I believe this is likely to happen as now that MSFS has proven it's feasible; P3D's clients are likely to be demanding it. Imagine downloading an update to P3D and seeing a new option: "Streaming Scenery ON/OFF". Everyt...

Re: FSX Gold to FSX 2020 transition

Since the 377 was never updated beyond FSX and won't work in P3Dv4 (it seemed to work in v2 but I never actually flew it there), it's is highly unlikely that it will ever be made to work in MSFS. Unfortunate, as I did love that plane. User ports of FSX aircraft to MSFS are unsatisfactory. They can b...

Re: What's with the forum logo?

I logged in with a different browser and got the P-40 logo. You're probably right about it being a cache issue.

Re: A2A wow!

Out of all the aircraft I've flown in FSX/P3D/MSFS, the Cherokee is the one I'd be most likely to own as a real aircraft. It's not the biggest, it's not the fastest, but it is very pleasant to fly and fulfills all my requirements. I really enjoy the Cherokee in P3D. Of course if money were no object...

Re: Be especially careful in upcoming months

All this raw data comes from the CDC. It's been shown on here that a Youtuber made a video - using CDC data - claiming that Covid19 wasn't very dangerous, that the CFR was around .25%. Now, if that's true, why don't the epidemiologists at the CDC - who surely must be as familiar with and equipped t...

Couple this with large increases in certain specific types of events - like massive strokes in young, healthy people - that are known to be related to a Covid19 side effect (in this case blood clotting) Hey, great news for us with various heart problems! We're already on blood thinners to prevent s...
