    FIXED! No CTD and a 3 hour flight (YPPH-YPAD, QF1866) after deleting files in TFDi Design\717\Persistence. Thank You gamesyns

    CTD after P3Dv4

    Were you experiencing the CTD after this update as I outlined in my post, for you to reinstall, or was it from other issues?
  3. 717 was working fine until this update, Prepar3dv4 loads to 98% then crashes. Had the usual problems of installer telling me files were in use in Panel\images\displays\MCDUScreenOverlay.png and Panel\images\radar\bterr_dot_low_0.png and the Ready_to_Start.xml in \panel\state. I deleted these files as I usually do for the updater to install new files. Went to the log files and no log was generated for these crashes(tried to start P3dv4, 3 times) To check that fault was not with P3D I loaded the PMDG737ngx at the same airport\gate\time as previously attempted with the 717. NGX loaded into P3Dv4 fine no crashes. Flew the 717 a couple of days ago pre this update with no issues.

    Update manager error message.

    Deleted as requested, this message now displayed - if it's a P3Dv3 issue, I'll uninstall from that platform - I don't use it anymore, moved over to P3Dv4. Steve

    TOD Calc not very accurate

    I posted here because I'm an 'Opt In' user.. do you still want me to transfer?
  8. The FMC shows TOD to commence at 2335 or about 5 miles away, the time in the ND shows it is currently 2258. This means the 717 will take 37 minutes to travel the 5 miles. The LOWER image shows that the 717 has reached TOD and commenced descent at about 2300hrs, yet the FMC now shows a TOD calculation of 2330. I have noticed this inconsistency in about 95% of the 200 plus flights(through my VA) I have done in the 717. I have been caught out many times when the 717 descends well before the displayed time in the FMC. I have also noticed that when waypoints in the flightplan are bypassed via the "direct to" function in the keypad, the TOD is not updated, despite the flight being shortened. Can you look at making the TOD calculation more accurate?

    Longest 717 flight

    Qantas (Qantaslink) use the 717 in a lot of Outback routes covering large distances Cairns to Alice Springs 786nm Perth to Broome 941nm Cairns to Uluru( Ayers Rock) 1000nm Alice Springs to Perth 1120nm Perth to Adelaide 1200nm
  10. 1 hour into 2 hour flight in P3Dv4.1 switch from cockpit view to external view, Prepar3D crashed, don't know if it was caused by the 717 or Chase Plane, in any case I've attached the log files that may be of help to you. (added txt file extension so I could drag into post) TFDi_Design_717.log.txt
  11. All normal until 90mins into a 2 hour flight(QF1949 YBCS-YBAS) then FMS surround and overhead texture changed to Gold...latest build, never happened prior to this update. Prepar3D v4.0 Steve
  12. Wondering if it will be soon. Steve

    Cold and Dark Gnd Pwr Gen switches in On position

    They are ON in the Cold and Dark state. In previous versions they were OFF in this state. What are they supposed to be when the AC is in Cold and Dark State?
