    Autopilot Goes Nuts

    It has happened several times with pretty much the same conditions. Always when close to the approach. Always resulting in the sim crashing to the desktop. No indication in the Windows log file. How would I go about completely uninstalling and re-installing with the latest versions?

    Autopilot Goes Nuts

    Hello, I am having big, big problems with the auto flight system on my 717. Flying on Pilotedge, the controller gives me a different destination runway from what I have set in the FMC when I'm in the decent. While descending, I go in the FMC and change the runway (KPDX from rwy 26 to rwy 08) and the autopilot disconnects as soon as I select *INSERT. I reconnect the autopilot and re-select NAV on the MCP. I was in a decent, but now the autopilot wants to climb even though I have a lower altitude in the MCP. I select PROF, but nothing changes so I pull the altitude knob, but I'm still climbing, so I put -1000 in the VS window and my screen turns cream colored while the sim freezes. Then the screen comes back, but the sim is still froze and the hour-glass is rotating.......next I'm looking at my desktop 😝. Goodby Pilotedge. This has happened several times even when flying offline. By the time I get close to the approach, the auto flight system goes wacky and causes the whole sim to crash. I love this 717 and I'm completely addicted to it so this is a very traumatic experience for me. Do I need to uninstall the 717 and re-install it? Please help me. I love this aircraft sim and really need to fly it. 😪 Thank you, Bob

    Flashlight for P3Dv4?

    I'll check into that. Thank you.

    Flashlight for P3Dv4?

    I didn't know that. Thank you. The main thing that I wanted was a flashlight that I could use for a cold and dark cockpit at night, like the one that they use in X-Plane. I'm going to check on this though. It would be good for when you are outside of the aircraft. Thank you, Bob

    Error Notice When Updating With Addon Manager

    It seems to be working fine. Thank you.

    Flight plan folder location?

    ....or just try: C:\Users\Owner\Documents\TFDi Design\717\Company Routes
  8. Hello, I just ran the update from within the Addon Manager, which updated the manager itself, along with the aircraft. I got an error when doing the update which is shown below. I did not have any anti-virus running while updating. The Addon Manager did not crash. I just selected "Ok" and it looked like it finished, but I'm not sure if there was a problem. I do not know of any other program that was running while it was updating. Is this something that I need to be concerned about? Thank you, Bob

    Flashlight for P3Dv4?

    This may seem silly, but there are times when I start out at night in the cockpit and would love to have a small addon that would be like a cockpit flashlight and could work in conjunction with the mouse. I know that X-Plane comes with one, but it would be great to have one for P3Dv4 also. Does anyone know if there is something like this available? TFDi Design has the best lighting program on the market as part of their 717 upgrade, and is what made me think about it. Thank you, Bob

    I'm Just LOVING This 717

    Since all of the added work and updates that TFDi has put into this 717, it is now the most enjoyable aircraft that I fly on P3Dv4. Everything works perfectly and the sound is beautiful, not to overlook the beautiful cockpit lighting that no other simulation can match. I have wanted a 717 simulation for so many years, I even tried to help a developer once, that said he would make one if he could get enough support, but he backed out because he couldn't get enough funding for it. This TFDi 717 is so far beyond my expectations and I'm loving the experience of flying it so much, that I felt I had to get in this forum and say something. It's an absolute dream. Thank you to all who helped make it a reality. Bob

    TFDi Design 717: Introducing RealLight

    FSL's Spotlights is not for P3Dv4 and I can see it doesn't look as good. I just brought it up because I didn't know why RealLights didn't have a user interface for other aircraft, but that has been answered. Thank you, Bob

    ATS Off But Engines 71 N1

    I'm finding that if I select the FADEC switches to ALTN, the engine RPM will drop to idle. As soon as I put them back to normal, my engines N1 will go back up to 72. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Never had this problem before. Thank you, Bob
