  1. Thanks to all who made these sincere and heartfelt comments. I have collated these comment together with ones from other forums and have passed them on the his family. I am sure that they will greatly appreciate hearing the high regard that his fellow simmer have for him and his contribution. Greg
  2. Bruce Saunders (BruceE) who many of you have had contact with via the forums has sadly passed away. He caught the COVID-19 virus and was admitted to hospital on the 24th of April and after fighting against the virus had to be placed on a ventilator. He eventually succumbed to the damage to his lungs and kidneys on Sunday the 3rd of May. Bruce was active in a number of areas and forums as part of his flight simulation life Bruce was a keen advocate of the use of the A2A GA aircraft and these were always on his short list for our OZx flights. In particular he enjoyed the Comanche and the
  3. Wow, thanks for posting this, so we could share a small part of the experience. i was surprised by how emotional I felt watching it.
  4. It turns out windows was somehow corrupted so have had to resinstall windows (1903) and all my programs again. I did the reinstall of FTX products method that Nick Cooper explained some time ago. The trouble is, even with this, the problem remains. On taking off on runway 34, or even flying over runway 34 in a northerly direction there is a 6-7 second freeze. This can't be a compatibilty issue if I'm starting from scratch, and haven't installed the Flightbeam software, so maybe this could be moved back to the P3Dv4 forum. Unless it has something to do with my hardware :-( I'
  5. Ahh, thanks for that information. I may try that but in the mean time have found some errors being reported by P3D so will post those and see if anyone thinks they are significant or not
  6. Yes, I have run the verify files tool and it says everything checks out ok. My Flightbeam and Orbx worked fine together too, I just really didn't like the overabundance of deciduous trees! So maybe I should reinstall FB and then run their tool and see if that clears anything up.
  7. Sadly this doesn't help but thanks anyway
  8. Further to Flightbeam. I can see log files from Flightbeam-Manager.exe and Flightbeam-Updater.exe which have apparently been modified today even though I deleted the Flightbeam software over 3 weeks ago. My computer appears to be haunted!! The log files are located in: C:\Users\Greg\AppData\Local\Microsoft\CLR_v4.0_32\UsageLogs [Edit] thinking about it I suspect that this may just mean that a system file has accessed the log files and it's nothing to do with FlightBeam
  9. Carlos, thanks for trying this out for me. I did install the Flightbeam NZWN but had previously uninstalled after not liking their trees. I think I also deleted all their files. When I reinstalled P3D I put it into a diffrent directory from the last time and deleted the old directory so there should be no Flightbeam file remnants causing problems. Now I'm wondering if there is/are some registry entries that I might need to remove, or something in some other location. Thanks for this reminder, at least it gives me another avenue to explore.
  10. Now this one has me really puzzled, especially as none of my friends have the same issue at this location. I see that people have 5 or 6 second pauses in various locations round the world and initially though that this was just one of those things. However, I happened to notice the same pause at another two close by airstrips/airports - NZWN and N503. Further investigation showed that the pause would also occur at other points along a line joining these two airports. The issue continues out to the West but it moves slightly further north. See the ride lines on the images below. The freeze also
  11. I should mention that it is working perfectly now
  12. Wow, I didn't even think of looking at the scenery library as it was a fresh install do I thought all would be set up properly. Now I'm feeling a little embarrassed, but pleased, that it was this easy! Thank you so much for your help with this most rapid and successful resolution of my problem. You guys are the best.
  13. Yes, both of those options were already ticked so they don't appear to be the cause of my issue :-(
  14. I've been struggling with this one over the last 3 days. I was getting 4-5 second pauses on take of from 04 at NZWN using Orbx NZSI so decided to uninstall the scenery and reinstall it. This resulted in missing airport features both in NZWN and NZCH. After multiple re-installs with no resolution I bit the bullet and uninstalled P3D (v4.5) and reinstalled it. Still the same problem has persisted. I also deleted the following directories: User/Appdata/Roaming/LockheedMartin User/Appdata/Local/LockheedMartin directories. The P3D installation directory (in this case: H:/P3D4)
  15. I'm not entirely sure that it's Orbx. My P3dv4.5 has been fine - until today, and now it's a lot slower. I notice that Microsoft in the continued idiocy loaded some updates this morning and so tried to uninstall them to see if things would revert to how they were. One of them won't uninstall so maybe I'm stuck with this. I had turned off updates but apparently MS considers this one an essential security update for some reason. The one I am unable to remove is KB4489899 Apart from reinstalling windows in my 1 month old machine is there any other way to remove this
  16. Thank you Nick, that has fixed the problem, now I can happily take off and pop up to Stonehenge for a trouristy type look round :-)
  17. Interesting Bruce. Thanks for checking up on this. Interestingly, I did consider getting the payware EGHA to see if that solved the problem! It seems that it would have.
  18. Well, no luck so far. There are some EGHA entries in FTX_EU and FTX_Vector but disableing these in the Scenery Library has no effect on what I'm seeing. I've also renamed some of the files, as shown below, in the World/scenery folder and THe Orbx vector forder as well as some in Orbx/FTX_AU - not sure why EGHA is appearing there? I've also: deactivated all my add-on non Orbx scenery unbinstalled the global airports pack checked that the FTX entries are below my last add-on scenery Checked that OpenLC entries are below the FTX entry Checked that TE GB s
  19. Thanks Nick, I should have remembered that technique - maybe increasing old age is making its effects known . . . . I renamed 000_EGHA_FTX_Exclude_Alt.BGL to 000_EGHA_FTX_Exclude_Alt.BGL.old and that has fixed the elevation issues. There only remains a minor problem with two sets of runway numbers on the threshold. One from the photoreal, and the other from the added airport autogen stuff.
  20. Starting a fllight at EGHA I am experiencing elevations issues as shown in the attached screen shots. I'm running : EU England TrueEarth Great Britain South Global Airports All the global range apart from Open LC Mesh South America I've run the migration tool and Vector Config to reset airport elevations - but checking on the list EGHA doesn't seem to be present on either the enabled side, or the disabled side. Any suggestions would be good. This is a fresh install of P3D v4.4.16.27077 on a new computer. I haven't found any problems with other airpor

  22. Came across squirrel flow in one airport. MAde me smile to see this cute little beast loloping around the edge of the taxiway - I think it was in France.
  23. Oops, sorry for the confusion, I was replying to the original post but you posted before I completed my reply so it looks like I replied to you. I agree 15 or so metres is not usualbly significant.
