    How to fly a manual ILS not using the FMS

    Ken, Would I be right in assuming that you are programming this from the NAV/RAD page in the 717's FMS? If not, that should be the place to go to fill in all of the required information. Let me know if I can help further.

    Phpvms7 Support

    At the moment, we don't officially support phpVMS 7, however we are actively looking into this. For now though, especially with those VAs hosted through TFDi Design, we are not able to support phpVMS 7 being run on our shared hosts just yet either. This is due to limitations with the level of SSH access needed for an install. Although we don't have any immediate plans, I have seen that Nabeel has posted here about making it for shared hosting and there is a plan to get it available for shared hosting in the near future. However, for now, it is only able to be run on servers where the user has, essentially, full root access which for some large hosting companies is a security problem if many people have that access. I am all ears if you have any further comments on this

    P3Dv4 RealLight Texture Flickering

    Sorry for the "radio silence" here. We are waiting on a fix from LM, it's out of our hands. We are waiting on LM to release some changes that support the way that us, and some other, developers, make use of the SDK. We will keep people updated on the Forum and Social Media as and when we get a permanent fix.

    P3D v4.3 .....717 V1.1 Crash To Desktop

    Yes, my bad. I has just responded to a ticket on the SLI issue and got muddled up. Yes, we will be making the forum post once the fix is released

    P3D v4.3 .....717 V1.1 Crash To Desktop

    We're not particularly sure when the fix will be released, although I would imagine it to be in the next iteration of P3D that is released. We are trying our very best to ensure this issue is resolved as soon as we can but without any information from LM as to a timescale, we can't say for sure. I will ensure that a forum post is made once the SLI issue has been fixed so make sure you keep up to date with P3D versions and our forum

    P3D v4.3 .....717 V1.1 Crash To Desktop

    There is a temporary unofficial fix (as in it's the best we can offer until a permanent fix is given by LM)

    PACX release

    Olivier, We are unable to provide a definitive time frame for the release of PACX, however, we will release more information close to the time on Social Media or a forum post. As with almost every developer, we are never able to provide an accurate release date until it is pretty much complete

    Community Suggestions

    Good morning/afternoon/evening, I am looking through the forum and I see that we have been very quiet on the community front for a little while now and I really want to make a change with that. By opening up a new thread here, I want to hear the feedback from you guys as to what you want to see in the forum. This is an opportunity for you to raise ideas that others may enjoy or something that will make your overall experience of the 717 LOADS better. I will make sure to monitor this thread as often as I can, unlike others that I sometimes cannot do, to ensure that your feedback is logged effectively and we can form an action plan. In the past, we offered the Fresh Paint Friday program where new liveries were planned to be released every week, but it fell through and we were unable to continue this. However, now we have the staffing available to run this, I am definitely going to look into running this again. Leave a like on the post if you are interested in #FPF every week. If you are good at creating textures from requests, please drop me a PM with your email addresses and I will get in contact with you at some point in the coming days to discuss working with the community to get this going! That's all I have at the minute, so please feel free to suggest other features or even to improve what we currently have. Thanks, Josh!

    P3D v4.3 .....717 V1.1 Crash To Desktop

    This will definitely work, just remember to do it! I wasn't personally aware of this, but I will amend my original post to mirror the feedback in this response!

    P3D v4.3 .....717 V1.1 Crash To Desktop

    Hey everyone I just thought I would address this topic again for you all, just so you know that as a support/development team, we are aware of the issue and we want this to be resolved just as much as you guys! The issue is caused on the side of LM, due to the resources the 717 uses, and we are trying our best to work with them on delivering a fix. Unfortunately, they aren't willing/able to put this fix out straight away and it will most likely be resolved in the next update of P3D. This means that for now, we have to find a workaround. To resolve this issue, we have found that opening a new external-view window (using the square bracket keys) and making that as small as possible in the corner of your sim will almost definitely stop all crashes. We cannot guarantee it to be 100% successful, but it is the best we can do at the minute. It is important to note that while every effort is being made from our side, we can't guarantee the fix will be released at any given moment. It is down to when LM release the new version. As always, I am going to try my very best to keep you all updated on the forums as I am aware it has been neglected for a little while. Josh
  13. @Plexi I have responded to your other post. @GerdD Would you like to explain that reasoning, either in a reply here or in a ticket? I would like to know why we are "unacceptable" and/or "ignorant" because we don't try to be and I want to rectify the issue placed before us here!

    Whats happening?

    Pete, I am really sorry for the delay in responding to this request. We have had several tickets and other arrangements we have had to prioritise. We will need to get some more details from you, including log files and the likes, so please open up a support ticket and I will personally see to the ticket and that you get a timely response. Our support desk is closed now until Monday, so please allow the weekend before we respond to your ticket. Once again, my sincerest apologies and all the best.
