  1. Now, why will the dev tell me that the elevation is correct ...? Will copy / paste this to him in an email. Thank for clarifying this ... and I suspect that the airports in South America have a similar problem.
  2. That is indeed very very weird / strange ... ... and I have no idea why the two airport (FSDT and JustSim) will show up differently. I think I have the FSDT version somewhere because it came out with a discount if I remember correctly. Will install and see but I doubt if that's the problem because I encountered the same thing while flying in South America.
  3. The last airport that I've noticed this was Basel (LFSB) where the EFB says: ELEV 24" ... but in reality the airport is at 880" This is for the JustSim scenery - BUT, I've already asked them about the elevation and they've confirmed that in their scenery it is: Elevation: Rwy 15 = 886" and Rwy 33 = 882" # I'm using the latest AIRAC release. [See attached picture]
  4. Over the last few days I've witnessed and quite a few instances that the altitude displayed on the EFB does not correspond with the 'real' altitude of the airport. For example my last flight to Basel (LFSB) where the altitude is 880" but in the EFB it shows 24" ... Are both "navigraph-navdata" in the Community Folder -AND- the latest "AIRAC" for Aivlasoft wrong with the altitude of this airport? The other airports were mainly in South America because that's where I fly most of the time in May. I've decided to do a continent every month in all the splendour that MSFS provides.
  5. YES! YES! it's fixed and I have my airports and ILS frequencies back. Thanks for the help Oskar.
  6. Got it. Will uninstall and reinstall Navigraph and then update EFB2 DbBuilder and then take the sim for a spin to see if everything displays as it should.
  7. Hi Oskar ... thank you so much for the clarification. I've updated the sim last night to the latest version, is there any other way to 'update simulator' if there is no official update for FS2020 ...? In the meantime I will uninstall the Navigraph app and reinstall maybe it will then be the latest version. Thanks for your help. Regards Terblanche
  8. Missing Airports and ILS Frequencies - I've rebuild the database a few times but the same problem persists ... For example: Although PAVD (Valdez Pioneer) is in FS2020 and you could land and take-off from the airport, the EFB says 'no airport found' At EFHK (Helsinki) all the ILS frequencies display 'NO LOC FOUND' and therefore you have to look up the ILS frequencies from your Jepp plates, and they all work at the airport What and where does the DataBuilder misses when it writes the data file ... or am I doing something wrong somewhere?? Above mentioned are only two examples, there are many more. PS: Aivlasoft and FS2020 are up to date.
  9. This is my night colour setting. Remember to backup your setting Copy my tj.colors.bin file to: c:\Users\[user]\Documents\aivlasoft\EFB2\Client\Settings\Colors Enjoy! tj.colors.zip
  10. I have the same [ERROR] ... but Client works regardless of it ...
  11. Oh my oh my ... I haven't thought about that. NZWN = 6729" (2050m) and although they easily land and take-off a B787-900 from Wellington, the EFB had the min runway to 2200m and I've now reset it to 2000m and will see what it comes up on the next flight. Thanks a lot. Will do a search for "Server not going to tray ..."
  12. Where on Earth is Wellington - New Zealand (NZWN) ...? Latest Airac installed Flightbeam Scenery installed (afcad correct) Wrote new database (11 times !!) Nada, ziltch, zero -> not a dot or a spot of NZWN anywhere in the EFB ........??? Here is the strangest part: you load a flightplan [e.g. KLAX/NZWN) and the NZWN shows on the sidebar and you could even do ARR but the moment you land at the airport then there is nothing ... only the all the AI traffic and yourself on the Client screen and no airport (afcad layout). Weird!? PS: and on a different note ... ... why will the Server not automatically go to tray after startup - it doesn't matter how many times you tick the box in SETTINGS??
  13. Thank you Oskar ... I've just noticed something peculiar - ASP4 is usually on a second computer that I run via network. That (old) computer is in for repairs, and I'm running ASP4 on same computer for now and that's also when the EFB problem started. When I completely close ASP4 even in 'hidden' (bottom right) and THEN start EFB, everything works as it should. I'm aware that ASP4 uses PORT 19284 but maybe there is a link between the two. But I'll keep the RESTART in mind, until the other PC is back.
  14. Why the continued error RE: TCPListener ...? Nothing has changed on my rig and PORT 51748 has been enabled/opened via Kaspersky (as it has always been) but the last 24 hours I can't start the SERVER.

  15. Thanks Marc ... this was a good exercise to understand the what, where, how of adding a profile.
  16. More than welcome to do it. My first name is Terblanche ?
  17. Thank you Oskar ... I will spend some time the weekend and figure it all out in more detail. In the meantime I've updated the two profile files. At least they work. B748Fv3.profile.xml B748v3.profile.xml
  18. I've deleted the "wildcard" entries now, only entered the *.air file names and it seems that everything is still working. Will test and try to recreate both with respective *.air file names and see what's the outcome. It is, however, evident that AS is more concerned with what/how you name the Manufacturer, Model, and Series - because, once I've got that correct, AS had no problem to recognise the aircraft automatically.
  19. Jip, that is exactly how I've done it. Attached are my two profiles for the B748 and B748F and as far as I can see they work perfectly. B748Fv3.profile.xml B748v3.profile.xml
  20. Don't know on your side, but on my side of the world this specific B748 from PMDG the *.air file is B747-8I.air and I've tried that first and AS kept saying it could not find the profile until I've changed it to the above mentioned. I've now edited the MTW and MLW and all seems to work as it should. I saw in the B747-400 profile that came with default AS that they've entered this, like that in Airfile Names: b747-400* ifly744_* boeing747-400 And I only copied it to the relevant -800 model.
  21. After posting the above I realised there is one more combo that I haven't tried and as true as full moOn tonight, AS accepted it and after a restart of the Client there was no window telling me it's still in the cloud of not knowing. Now I will try and see if I can get the fuel and weight sorted out. Haven't flown the 748F model yet and will cross that profile when I get there ...
  22. If only we know what profile will AivlaSoft accept because I've tried: B747-800 PMDG 747-8 PMDG 747-800 BOEING 747-8 v3 Boeing 747-8 B747-8 B748 And tried my best to fill in every box, tab and click to the best of my ability with the manual open next to me but AS keeps nagging that the profile could not be found. Will be more than willing to share the profile once AS has decided to accept the profile.
  23. Here is my new night (dim) colours profile if someone wants to give it a try ... the 'day' colours are untouched and only the night colours were edited. And please Aivlasoft, could we have the AI display of v.1 back? I don't know what has changed in the way that v.2 is reading the AI but this doesn't work. My settings are for +9000/-9000 and still I see a lot of TCAS on my ND all of which are +2-3 or -2-4 and yet not a dot on the EFB. Previously we could see exactly (i) what aircraft, (ii) route, (iii) speed and (iv) altitude ... and now, if we're lucky we will only see what aircraft and relatively where from our aircraft with a small train behind it telling you where it is going (more or less). This was one of the great features of v.1 and will be greatly appreciated to have it back. tj.colors.bin
  24. In the 22 years that I've been simming, I've never ever, even considered the possibility to stop-exit-startup-resume a flight in mid-air ... maybe because I'm also a pilot and the whole idea has never crossed my mind. ? I will not even know how to do it with a PMDG, Q400 or A320 in the sim because all of them are set on a cold-and-dark default state on my rig.
