  1. Hi all I contacted //42 support and Kevin reported chase plane forces a log on once in a while to update. A problem for me as my flightsim PC is not online. Hope this helps. Best wishes Bob
  2. Hi Sorry I cant help any more. I think Orbx Central did say 1.1.69 but it also indicated a update is available. I asked Orbx Central to update Chase Plane , it did update, it now reports version 1.1.72. The PC is is currently back in its usual place (not connected to the internet and working. Until the next time comes around and forces us to go through this again. I am not happy about this and have raised a support ticket with //42 Perhaps if you UN-install and re install?? However I don't know too much about this stuff and that may be bad advice. I feel this forcing a update, even if it is not required in not good practice and intrusive. I am also concerned that Kevin is not active on this support forum. What else can we do if a product we bought in good faith stops working due to the developer having a time limit for how long it will go without requiring a update, even though it is working fine. Then, as in your case the update will not work. Best wishes and good luck Bob
  3. Hi all I have been using Orbx products for almost 10 years on a PC that is not normal connected to the internet. Recently with Chase Plane moving to Orbx central I transfers my chase plane to Orbx To do this I need to move my PC to a new location as where I have it set up has no internet connection. Recently (I think only chase Plane) stopped working. I raised a support ticket withe // 42 and received the following this morning Hi Bob, ChasePlane/Orbx does check for licenses and requires a connection to the server every once in a while. You need to connect to the internet and update Orbx Central/ChasePlane for it to work again I do not recall ever having to do this in the past 10 years for all other Orbx products. For me this is a significant issue as due to COVID-19 NZ is in total lock down for a month. I do not have the ability to purchase additional hard ware to enable easy internet connection Can someone from Orbx confirm if this is indeed the case and provide any advise. Thanks in advance if you can help. Best wishes Bob.
  4. Hi I along with others also asked this question, I also raised a support ticket. Keven, who I understand is the developer, replied with "ChasePlane/Orbx does check for licenses and requires a connection to the server every once in a while" You may find it will fix your problem if you are able to go into Orbx central and update Chase Plane, my version is a little later than your its 1.1.72 For me this is a problem as: New Zealand is in lock down for a month, due to COVID – 19 Due to the lock down I do not have the ability to purchase hardware (switches modems or wireless adapters) to enable my flight sim PC to connect to the internet. If chase plane requires this connection it will prevent me from using P3D, as when chase plane does not work my views are completely wrong. If this had been known before I could have prepared by buying some hardware. I don't believe it is Orbx as I have had Orbx products for close to 10 years and never had this issue Please note I believe Chase Plane is excellent therefore I do not want to lose the ability to use it. However if it requires a connection in the next month!!!. Best wishes and good luck Bob
  5. Hi all I received an answer from my support ticket. Kevin did confirm that "ChasePlane/Orbx does check for licenses and requires a connection to the server every once in a while" For me this is a significant problem over the next month because" New Zealand is in lock down for a month, due to COVID – 19 Due to the lock down I do not have the ability to purchase hardware (switches modems or wireless adapters) to enable my flight sim PC to connect to the internet. If chase plane requires this connection it will prevent me from using P3D, as when chase plane does not work my views are completely wrong. If this had been known before I could have prepared by buying some hardware. I don't believe it is Orbx as I have had Orbx products for close to 10 years and never had this issue Please note I believe Chase Plane is excellent therefore I do not want to lose the ability to use it. However if it requires a connection in the next month does anyone know how to get my old views back. Also this will be a issue as I have changed my control set up to suite chase plane. Best wishes Bob
  6. Hi Both Thanks I did not know that. Best wishes Bob
  7. Hi One question. If we have the PILOTS 2010 mesh already installed as (recommended by Orbx for global) Which mesh will Africa use? My understanding is the PILOTS 2010 mesh is 10m which sounds better than 76m mesh Or am I missing something?
  8. As noted in my post above Why do I need to update to the latest version when I am happy with the way it is working and nothing else has changed or updated ? Please advise. Bob
  9. Can some one from //42 respond to these points / answer these questions I have no need to update ChasePlane as it is working fine. My PC is not connected to the internet so Windows or P3D etc. has not updated or changed in any way. Why would ChasePlane need to be updated if nothing on my system has changed. It is not a simple task to update my PC as I need to move it to a different location to connect to the internet New Zealand is in lock down for a month due to COVID-19 so this is not a simple task. Does ChasePlane only work for a period of time then require reactivation or updating? If this is the case can it be removed without updating? I have updated and ChasePlane is working again BUT if it happens again in the next 4 weeks!!! I do love the add on but this will effectively stop my version of P3D from functioning If ChasePlane does not start my views are completely wrong. If ChasePlane stops working how can I get P3D to function again? Best wishes Bob
  10. I also have this issue and as my PC is not conected to the internet I have dificulty updating Can someone from // 42 please supply a answer? Best wishes Bob
  11. Hi But my PC is not connected to the internet why would it stop working as nothing has / can change Does chase plane only work for a set period of time? If so this is not an acceptable solution as I have to move my pc to another location to update. Please advise.
  12. Hi I can no longer start chase plane I have moved my license to the Orbx thing, every thing has been working fine since then until tonight. Now when I try and start chase plane is goes through the starting phase but then shuts is self down, before I can start P3d V4.5. I have it set so that it starts independent of P3dV4.5 It was working fine on the weekend Nothing has changed on my PC as the PC is not connected to the internet so no updates etc have been installed etc. I am on version 1.162 and have no need to install any update as it is was working fine with all my add-ons It simply will not run any longer than a few seconds Please advise as this has effectively made my install of P3D useless as my view is now sitting in the back seat of the cockpit. Best wishes Bob
  13. Hi all I did the migration thing and it all seamed to go ok however now I have no buildings? or trees? Any clue? Thanks Bob
  14. Hi Nick That makes sense. I installed directly into the sim when I installed all the regions. I will have a go at the "migration thingy" and see how I get on. Thanks for your advise. Best wishes Bob
