Re: B377 thrust reverse, CH throttle quadrants and FSUIPC4

I tried to post the contents of my Lua scripts here but some draconian 'protection' feature would not let me post them. I am going to try something else. http://www.sonic.net/~csardas/public/B377_luas.jpg I assigned one of my throttle quadrant detent switches to run the first lua when the throttle ...

Re: B377 thrust reverse, CH throttle quadrants and FSUIPC4

I used 2 small lua scripts to implement the reverse thrust entry and exit functions.

They simply used the 'F' keys in a loop to enter reverse and exit it.

I posted the solution here several years ago.

Re: B-17 maximum range

Hamilton Field, California to Hickam Field, Hawai'i. In the 91st Bomb Group we fly that every year around Dec 6 or 7th. Usually arrive with some a few gallons of fuel in the tanks :) That hop is about 2090 nm. Another long range flight we make is MacDill AFB - Walla Walla Regl., 2009 nm. Anything ov...

Can not update the Comanche

Or any of my A2A P3DV4 aircraft. I used to be able to update them from the 'Programs' menu but now the 'Checking for updates' pop-up runs (blue bar running left to right') for several seconds and then another pop-up appears with the message: "Checking for Updates - The handle is in the wrong state f...

Re: feathering gremlins

There is an issue with the code. I have found it and reported it. It won't be addressed for awhile so
there is no point in delving in to this any further.

See my earlier post in this topic.

Re: feathering gremlins

I just checked the code and found the differences between Eng 4 and the other 3 engines.
Will notify the powers that be.

Re: Forum not 'remembering me' again

Hi Nick,

I use Firefox and nothing that restricts cookies. I was not seeing any issues for quite
some time but in the last few days I have had to log back in.

May be a passing anomaly.

For the past couple of days I have had to re-log in when entering the forum. The 'Remember me'

Re: P3D V4 Flak effects

You are correct. I did mod it to go from the deck to some where around 30K or so. For my testing I would fly just inland a mile or two from the coast of France going north. Always ran into FLAK on those flights. Of course Berlin, Bremen and a number of other large cities are covered as well. I'll be...

Re: P3D V4 Flak effects

Insure that you have added the folder containing the FLAK scenery files to your scenery cfg file. Also insure that you have copied the effects files into your sim 'effects' folder. I don't recall what the max and min altitudes of that released version were but you should have FLAK between 10K and 20...

Re: P3D V4 Flak effects

Several members of the 91st Bombardment Group now fly P3DV4 and they experience the FLAK just as those of us that still fly FSX. So installing it in either sim (as well as SE) should work as is. Note that I have not updated any version(s) that are available in several years but that should cause no ...

Re: Multiplayer question

The JoinFS app allows FSX, FSX-SE and all versions of P3D to fly together on line. It is free and simple to install.

Re: Controllers left for sale. Lowered price selloff.

Dudley, I would be interested in the TWO Saitek Throttle Units. However I will not be home from my current trip here in Nova Scotia until August 14th. And then only for 10 days. Let me know what info you need and if the quads are 'mine' you could ship them around August 12th. The shipping address wo...

Re: C-1 autopilot light not lighting when turned on

The light in question is not a C-1 'power on' light but was intended to indicate that the C-1 functions were transferred to a '2nd station'. As it turns out, the 'Control Transfer' feature was not included in this model so the light was disabled, even though the switch can be operated. The switch do...
