Hi all,

This update fixes bugs in processing runways with displaced landing thresholds and in the timely selection of the correct runway offset when airborne.

If you have experienced problems with landing offsets or if you have stopped using them I recommend that you try this version with full offsets enabled.

Happy flying!

Hi Garry

Just downloaded the file from a work PC with no problem :-).

Must be an issue with my home setup, despite different browsers and a reload it would not download last night.

Thanks for your swift response.

I am sorry to say that with the latest build of VisualPSX and aerowinx PSX 10.0.5, I continuously have crashes of FSX. I did not have this problem with previous versions.
FSX freezes and VisualPSX keeps trying to contact FSX.
Anyone else has the same problem?

Hi Garry,
And thanks again for your efforts.
Sorry I did not post before, I just did not have time to use PSX in the past weeks.

Unfortunately, on this latest release, RunwaysPSX does not find my FSX SE, and so I can't run it.

Just for info, version 7.4 does detect my p3Dv2 install, I just have the issue with 6.4.
I only have FSX SE and P3dV2 on this computer, not FSX regular or P3dV1 for info.

Sorry, it seems I really am a pain in the .....

If you have an idea what could be wrong, that would be nice, otherwise, don't sweat it.

Anyway, really nice of you to try and solve everything.

All the best

Hi Gary,
Thanks for your great software, working well with p3Dv2.5.
While on Vatsim we noticed that there is discrepancy between the PSX altitude and what Vatsim is receiving. After checking P3D, there is a 500foot missmatch between PSX and P3D at altitude. eg. PSX 35,600 with p3D showing 36,100.
Any thoughts this? Is there something I am doing wrong in the settings?

Best Regards
Greg

Ref Greg's comments I have also noticed this when flying on Vatsim.

E.G The area QNH was 1032mb, I was cruising at FL380 with STD set and the controller pointed out my indicated altitude on his system was FL385. There were a number of other aircraft in the area at similar flight levels to me that did not get this comment so I assume I was the only one!

After a bit of thought I came to the same conclusion that Garry has outlined above.

I don't do any controlling on VATSIM so not sure if the controller systems display true altitude for all aircraft or whether or not some of the FSX-only clients actually send pressure altitude through. I would have thought they must use pressure altitude.

Will follow up on another forum and advise.

When flying with an online ATC system that doesn't model OAT dependent altitude errors, you should deselect the checkbox for this effect on Instructor > Situation > Aerodynamics. See tooltip text for details.

However, there is no effect in the upper airspace. When clicking the checkbox while you're at FL350, you will see no difference.

This is relevant for low altitudes only.

To demo the effect, try:

03 Approach 024 - Trondheim - Cold day.situ

@ Charles: Looks like FSX-SE has yet another set of registry keys. Do you know how to search the registry using Regedit? If so look for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREDovetailGames and let me know the names of the sub-keys below that. RunwaysPSX looks for the sub-key FSX but yours might be FSX-SE or something else.
Cheers,



Hi Garry, I don't have a DovetailGames key directly in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\DovetailGames.

I have keys under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\DovetailGames\FSX
I have 3 keys:
*(Default) Value not set
*exe_path D:\SteamApps\steamapps\common\FSX\fsx.exe
*install_path D:\SteamApps\steamapps\common\FSX\

I can't find another reference to dovetail in my registry.
Perhaps my install is corrupt somehow ?

Thanks Charles. The Wow6432Node is a windows version difference. I will add it to the search paths in the next update.

Cheers,

Speaking to an Vatsim ATC controller last night, I was told that what is set on the PSX PFD is what Vatsim controllers should see. Eg, At Flight Level 360, 36,000 feet STD on the PFD is what Vatsim should see. This is where I noticed the other night that we were told that we were not at the correct altitude.

It happens all the time now. It is probable that it is a FSX problem, but it is strange.
The memory and processor usage are not at maximum, I get a "bing" sound, FSX freezes and VisualPSX is unable to contact FSX.
I took a screenshot of it but I don't know how to add it here.

Just started using the latest VisualPSX with Prepar3dv2.

Works smooth, actually I'd say better than in FSX:SE ?

Where can I find a full 744 to install ( freeware ) in P3Dv2 guys, one that doesn't require getting anything from FSX, which I no longer have installed... ?

Thx

Hello Garry et All-

With Peter's (Skino's) upcoming release that will finally allow me to use a single large display for P3d- positioned over the windshield area of PSX...

GOT IT WORKING.... Can't wait for my first online flight....

Another question for Brian...

I am now using VisualPSX version 7, with P3Dv2.5

The first time I started it it worked like a chamr, and I had put the simconnect.xml in the proper Prepar3d Folder under AppData.

Strangely, after removing the file from there ( to use P3Dv2 standalone ), I started PSX and ViauslPSX, and it works perfectly again?

Is this because I am using all of it in a single puter, and it reverts to a default 127.0.0.1 ?
