    Flight1 Mustang Profile

    Here's a profile for the Mustang now that it has been released for P3Dv4. Weights and distances taken from the POH and Cessna Wiki. C510.profile.xml
  2. This profile is for the Carenado Phenom 300 v2. Weights and distances taken from the Embraer website. Phenom300.profile.xml Moved by Admin to General Discussion
  3. Have not noticed it happening again, but if it does I will try to grab some screenshots.
  4. That is exactly correct. CMPS, RNG and VCT were off, ACFT and ARC were on. Just got done with a flight and found that turning ARC on and off made the ACFT icon and Approach Plate disappear and appear. Almost like a toggle.
  5. Win10-64, P3Dv4.3, Avtive Sky for P3Dv4, FSUIPC 5.132 EFBv2 Client build 73, server build 56 Aerosoft CRJ700 Things are going fairly well with this new program, but occasionally the ACFT icon just disappears for no reason. Happens while climbing or descending mostly but could also happen in level flight. Moving map is continuing to update and move so I know EFB is still talking to P3D. Sometimes the icon will reappear after passing a waypoint only to disappear again. Happens in auto mode or manually zooming the display. Same thing with the Approach Plate. I usually hide it until needed but the green Approach tab disappears. Like the ACFT icon it comes back when crossing a waypoint but disappears again. One more on the Sidebar Status window. Occasionally it will show my Simulator as "Auto\Inhibit" in a grey font color. I guess that's coming from the FMS Legs page of the CRJ700. Any help is welcome.
  6. Restore the file from a backup. Run the P3Dv4 installer and let it repair your installation. Reinstall the "scenery.msi" Any chance Airport Design Editor is involved?
  7. Dirk, What version of EFB are you using? I have v1.6.14.0 and it already does all that. Reads and indexes the scenery.cfg AND any sceneries added thru the addon.xml method.
  8. Hi Jedeen, I think you're under the assumption the Ifly and Aivlasoft AIRAC data are identical. They're probably not. I've run across numerous cases where a SID, STAR or approach is different in different developer's AIRAC. Depends on how accurate and up-to-date Navigraph (or Aerosoft) is with their data and how fast they are to update any changes. EFB can only read the data stored in its AIRAC, which might be current with the Jeppsen Charts or years old and in need of an update. EFB does an excellent job providing you, the pilot, with all the information you need during all phases of a flight. Their Arrival or Approach maps show course, altitude constraints, nearby navigation beacons, frequencies, etc, just like the Jeppsen chart. Only difference is Jeppsen is current as of right now, today, while EFB depends on Navigraph (or Aerosoft) data which might be outdated. Both Navigraph and Aerosoft have user forums. Bring any errors or omissions to their attention and hopefully they'll get changed.
  9. You have an old version pf EFB. Download version 1.6.8.33244 and see what happens.
  10. Hi Jeff, Had this same problem late last year after updating the EFB program. My paths to the Navigraph data were correct but for some reason it wasn't working. If I remember right changing the location (from whatever was in the EFB settings) to a new location solved the issue. My current path in the EFB Data Provider is now "C:\Users\Jerry\Documents\AivlaSoft\EFB\AIRAC", with the NavData and SidStars directories inside the AIRAC directory. Path in the Addon Mappings of the Navigraph FMS Data Manager is the same. One thing I noticed in your above posts is you're using a forward slash when writing out the path, not a backslash. Did you .....? Are you running EFB as administrator? Hope this helps, but I'll keep thinking if there was something else.

    REX does not download to FSX

    Hi Colin, I was never able to get REX Essential +OD working consistantly within FSX. Sometimes I'd get the current weather, sometimes not. When I switched to P3D I bought a new weather engine (Pilot's FSGRW) and solved the problem.

    Where is last route stored?

    Hi Ned, Not at my computer right now, but I believe EFB's last flight is stored with all your other flightplans for FSX/P3D. Can't remember the naming convention used but when I saw it sitting there I immediately knew it was created by EFB.

    FSrealWX data folder

    <>\data\exchange\common\current_weather.txt Also... run FS Global Weather.exe and open the Tools menu > General Settings and check the "Enable Data Exchange" tick box. Description below that tick box should have the path to the weather file. EDIT: oops! Looks like there's two weather programs with the almost identical names, FSrealWX and FS Global Real Weather. The above instructions are for FS Global Real Weather by Pilot's Software. I learned something today.
  14. Hi A+, I run EFB off one computer so cannot match your networked connections, but FSX and/or P3D do pause when you change something that causes new textures to be loaded. Going from day to night, spring to fall involves a whole lot of textures to be replaced and is not done on the fly like LOD might be. Just did a flight from KENW to KINL with EFB running. Changed time and season numerous times, and while P3D did pause to load the appropriate textures, nothing bad happened like your mention of the time changing back. Even changed and re-actived the route with nothing bad. What other programs are running when this happened?
  15. So then that directory has to contain "SIDSTARS" and "Navdata" .
