Re: CTD when exiting FSX after flight

As outlined in the posts above this one, the DisablePreload=1 line contributes nothing to FSX or its performance. While it does hasten the appearance of the opening screen, FSX has to load the the scenery at some stage and any tiny amount of time saved is used up waiting for the black line to rise a...

Re: CTD when exiting FSX after flight

I disagree entirely. The disablepreload "tweak" is just that, a tweak. All it does is what it says, it disables the ability of FSX to preload before the "Fly Now" command is selected. One, I have never used it and never had a problem at all, let alone a CTD on exit of FSX. Two, it is well and truly ...

Re: Some little errors...

I do not believe that there is anything wrong with this model in respect of the "faults" that you describe. I think you need to look to your default flight. BEFORE STARTING Air system charging valve --> OPEN Air pressure --> CHECK > 30 Since the pneumatic system is producing pressure only if the eng...

It can be arranged that he can see an AN-2 but not this one.

Re: CTD when exiting FSX after flight

Workaround (up to solve the problems) 1. Run the FSX not with an AN-2 as standard flight. 2. Load always a flight without AN-2. 3. Select then your AN-2 flight model. 4. Open not the logbook after an AN-2 flight. 5. Before opening the logbook, select a different flight model. 6. Exit the FSX not wi...

Re: Repaints

Hmm... I've got 58 and I know its not all of them. Best guess is that there is an entry error in your Aircraft.cfg. Since you only have 12, I would look closely at [fltsim.12] and make sure the entry is correct. Copy all your fltsim entries or post your aircraft.cfg if you wish, and maybe someone c...

Re: Switches not working fix and CTD on exit probable fix

As a practical demonstration of the effect that different addon aircraft can have, I loaded one of my saved AN 2 flights, changed aircraft to the Aerosoft Beaver and saved this flight as my default. I did no more than this, I didn't even switch the batteries on. Having flown the Beaver without incid...

Switches not working fix and CTD on exit probable fix

It has become clear that this aircraft functions at its best when loaded in its own flight. To create a "clean" flight, select the default C172 at a location of your choice. Switch everything off and apply the parking brake. Save this flight and tick the make this the default flight box. Restart FSX...

Re: Download counter.

I would like to add my thanks also, all of the repaints are excellent and some are absolutely exceptional. All the better that they all complement a superb aircraft model.

If you look in the manual, page 23, you should be able to work it out for yourself.

Well spotted, I hadn't seen the key.
I did the same but the engine started, so I guess it was a coincidence.

Re: Switches not working

To add to the above post, if I may? I think that many FSX users under-rate the effects of the saved default flight, which in my experience, can cause as many problems as faulty entries in the fsx.cfg file, especially as addon aircraft models become more complex. In my humble opinion, there is a good...
