  1. I've just downloaded and installed this aircraft which is now available for P3DV4. Of course, I'm in trouble straight away! I've read the manuals but they all assume that the main panels are there, or, that you know how to get them to display. Unfortunately, I don't. Does anyone know how you actually get the displays to display on the instrument panel.please? Thanks. John
  2. Nah Sue - that's the version I've been trying to use! Strangely, I've found that in the P3DV4 weather program it gives a choice for AS16 Weather described as AS16 Weather Theme. It seems to work but I'm not really sure. Certainly it shows the weather here in England, usually cloudy! And in Texas, nice and sunny. Seems to vary the wind conditions too, so it may be I've have it without me knowin?! Without cast iron guarantees, I'm certainly not up for reinstalling it,,,,,again!. I just can't go through all that again. It doesn't just take a few hours, it takes days of solid work to get it all back together again. John
  3. I've been in touch with HiFi support about their supposed P3DV4 friendly AS16-V4 programme. If I've installed it once over the last fortnight or so, with new downloads from them I've done it at least half a dozen times. Problem is, not only it doesn't work but on at least a four occasions its taken my P3DV4 with it! Not only that, on three of those occasions its also took all my addons as well and they take at least three days to get back on! So now I'm giving up on AS16 and wondering if any of you kindly folk can please point me in the direction of an alternative Real World weather program that you've got and know works with P3DV4. Many thanks. John
  4. I've got fed up with AS16 and trying to get it to work with P3DV4. Their latest update beta messed up my P3D so much that I had to reinstall it. Then, of course, I had to reset all the controls, and star my favourite aircraft. All this takes an age when I should be flying! So, does anyone know of a decent Weather program other than Active Sky please? By the way, has anyone noticed that My Traffic Live doesn't work with the latest P3DV4 either? Many thanks, John
  5. Hi Sue It was definitely called 'default' somewhere. However.I don't know why I got it in the first place as I've never got on very well with A2A products. I'll probably uninstall it and wait for a Carenado or other version to be made available as I've got the AerosoftTwin Otter now which I can use for all sorts of flights. Thanks for your help. Keep well. John.
  6. With my normal 172 not yet updated to V4 I thought I would try the default A2A one. It flies ok, but oh my goodness, the auto pilot heading dial is completely the wrong way round. If you want to fly mainly Northwards on say 309, you actually have to set it to 176 which is not even exactly opposite. Trying to line up with the runway to land on 36 at KOZR Fort Rucker this afternoon was a nightmare, especially as it was clouded in to about 1000'. A big problem too was that you couldn't set the needle exactly opposite. It was always about 20 degrees out which made calculating the direction of flight even more difficult. OK, I could have flown withouit the auto pilot but that would have been a bit strenuous over the roughly 2-1/2 hour flight from KGNV Gainsville. The scenery was good though, even if that area of Florida is very flat. I'll be glad when I can get my old 172 and 182 back! John
  7. Well, Terry. I'll say one thing about Ozx, you're still a welcome member here whatever the rights or wrongs of this and I don't think that would have been the case with a certain other forum. Now I expect I'll be in trouble if anyone from there reads my comment! Look after yourself mate. From oldie John
  8. Problem is when you haven't any more suitable buttons left to use! Mind you, if you have it's a good tip. John
  9. Blimey. I've been playing with that bug but when I pressed it it didn't seem to do much except to change the CRS. Thanks Jorge I'll try again.. I looked for a manual in the PC12 folder. Never occurred to me they'd bury it in the P3D root folder. Nothing's ever easy is it?!! All the best and thanks again. John
  10. Smashing aircraft this for P3DV4 but if someone has it can they tell me please how to operate the heading bug on the auto pilot? Many thanks. John
  11. Got it. Thanks. John
  12. I've just got the beta Ultimate Traffic Live and must say it works extremely well. And it loaded with none of the complications you get with My Traffic X. The LM default aircraft are stii 'orrible in V4 so now I'm looking for civilian aircraft which'll work in V4. Pretty hard to come by at the moment. Ants work well but apart from taking a chance on the Turbine Duke, I can't find anything worth having. John
  13. Thanks for the tip about Ultimate Traffic Live vhufo. 'Speaking of traffic, i was looking at ORBX's freeware downloads and seen the "AI Traffic Australia and New Zealand".Andybody happen to get this working for Prepar3d v4?' I've not seen this myself but if you have Orbx elsewhere in your 'puter, FSX Central will tell you. Otherwise, I'm sure you can get the information from Orbx website or forum? John
  14. I've had a bit of trouble with P3DV4. Had all the scenery installed, then tried to do the update and couldn't get it to work at all. Did a 'repair', still didn't work, so I'm having to start all over again from a fresh download. So beware people. It seems not to be as stable as 3 so it might be wise to keep 3 until its had some time to settle down. For interest, it was working fine but the update was what upset the apple cart. John
