  1. Wow, someone replied to my post...I need to write this down. lol Seriously though, as I would tend to agree with you, it's still lost cash on our part. Other people out there, get downright nasty. In the world we live in now, it's a "we want it, and we want it now" attitude. Personally, I can understand if I can't get an answer to a resolution immediately, but at the same time, being outright accused by someone of being a pirate or committing theft, is pretty serious and I would demand proof. Like it usually goes, one bad apple can ruin it for everyone.
  2. I'd been mulling this over for a few days now, trying to come up with the right way to address this, because as a concerned customer, in the FS community, recent events pertaining to a vendor has me throwing up my hands. I won't name names, as it wouldn't do any good and since most of the time, we only get half the story, but the truth is, how can we as customers be assured that what we purchase online, from a vendor, will maintain the integrity and high standards set by the vendor? Allow me to explain: A recent customer of a well known FS content business had been desperate to receive comm
  3. What about add-ons, such as whether you are using simulator-manipulating software, such as sim starter or an accelerator? Any other add-ons, including GSX, weather? Try disabling the add-on scenery and seeing if the default airport and buildings surrounding the airport appear as they should. Have you also tried to uninstall and reinstall the scenery to see if perhaps something got corrupted and is now fixed? We could also surmise that there is a greater resource load on your rig in this area, which can happen for a lot of people. You may also want to visit the ORBX official forum and look
  4. What would help, is more info on your system specs, what other add-ons you are using, the description of the scenario (on the ground, in the air, on approach, etc). I've seen and heard this happening when settings are too high in P3D and the system rig cannot keep up.
  5. A little searching within the T2G Official Support Forum here, shows this post that should help you out:
  6. Not sure here if you found a resolution to this problem or not, but your best bet would be to contact SimMarket, and explain your issue to them, as this has to do with activations. If before you reset your PC back to factory settings and defaults, then you should have uninstalled the add-on, or else, the license could still be tied to the previous "system" that the authenticator recognizes. I am sure the folks at SimMarket can help you out.
  7. You may want to check the documentation that accompanied your installer. This looks to be an issue with your scenery.cfg file, which could have been modified to reflect the installation, but either is disabled, the scenery was removed and re-installed, or a manual edit was performed on the scenery.cfg file that caused this error. This is a rather easy error to fix, but first you need to confirm if the scenery is installed and if it is, you can easily delet the scenery.cfg file and allow FSX to re-create it, or you can attempt to uninstall the scenery and reinstall it, with the hopes that it
  8. First off, welcome! I have seen this type of behavior with graphic and resource intensive add-ons for even P3D. One suggestion that may get you to the right people, is to place a post within the Official T2G forum here at iFlySimX. Posting this issue here in this forum, may not get seen in a reasonable amount of time. Back to your issue, as I said, some airports that are graphic and resource intensive can use up valuable VAS (Virtual Address Space) which is constrained to 4gb of system RAM. No matter how much more RAM you have installed, your sim will only use 4gb. With that said, flying

  10. Legend has it, or rather a distant rumor from the old witches on the mountain that Lockheed Martin is considering a move to a 64-bit environment, and if that is the case, this could prove to be some good competition.
  11. Not sure if you've found a resolution to your issue or not, but there is a dedicated forum for Taxi2Gate here at this site and you may get an answer quicker.
  12. Greetings, I'm not sure whether anyone reads this forum, but I wanted to pose a question concerning T2G's stance on compatibility with P3D V3. Since it's release, many developers have been working on separate installers or updates to current ones for those who use P3D V3 and their new and improved wacky directory system. Some devs have stated that they aren't changing a thing while others are catering to the new system. In any case, what airports can be safely installed into P3D V3 and work without issue?
  13. There isn't so much a need to tweak P3D, as it is to get it to play nice with add-ons. For example, P3D stock handles PAPI lights rather well, but add in some third party scenery and you can see those PAPI lights from 100nm away and they get worse as you get closer. There is a tweak to scale the lighting overall and makes it easier on the eyes, which is this: RUNWAY_LIGHTS_APPROACH_SCALAR=0.4 RUNWAY_LIGHTS_STROBE_SCALAR=0.4 RUNWAY_LIGHTS_SURFACE_SCALAR=0.4 RUNWAY_LIGHTS_VASI_SCALAR=0.4 Granted, you can change the values to suit your taste. I have found that some of the old, tried a
  14. Using reversers at the gate for pushback actually is a real procedure, so you weren't wrong. All in all, your methods weren't actually rookie maneuvers, you just learned the long and hard way. -Vic
  15. When you say "all the basics", could you outline everything you have done to your cfg file? Have you tried deleting your cfg and allow FSX re-create it? Sometimes, the cfg file can get so polluted with too many tweaks that strange things can occur. Your best course of action is to start over with the cfg and then rerun FSX to see if this issue continues. If you still get OOMs, trying disabling some or all add-ons and then re-enable one at a time until you get the OOM.
