  2. IP addresses - always the first thing to check!
  3. 1. If you have an old P3D database, there is no need to rebuild it for an updated P3D version. The only time you need to rebuild the database is if you change your scenery. The log file will tell you for sure whether a build was successful. Oh, and NEVER build a database across a network: that is begging for failure. Always build databases on your FS PC and copy them across to your client. Having said that, going from an old version of Plan-G to v3.2, it is worth rebuilding the database, since Plan-G will now display your Addon airfields in yellow. 2. The black square houses the wind arrow. If you see a yellow arrow within then (a) you know you are connected, and (b) you know the wind direction. 3. P3D uses a different version of Simconnect compared to FSX, and requires a different setup. See http://www.tasoftware.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=3795.0 for details. With all versions of Simconnect, your FS PC requires a static or reserved IP address. BTW "index" refers to the index of the entry in your sim connect.cfg that you wish to use. For most users this will be the first/only entry, so the index value will be 0. Bear in mind that since P3Dv4 is a 64bit sim, its Simconnect might not work on a 32-bit PC - you'll just have to suck it and see (they might have compiled it for both, but I have no way of knowing). As Joe said, WideClient will still work.

    There do appear to be several fake batons. This is turning into a game of 3 Cups - I do hope someone knows where the real baton is (and that that isn't Putinfeld)!

  7. monitor advice needed please

    TV vs monitor is really only an issue when looking at big panels (say 42" and up). Below that, look for a monitor with an IPS panel. 1080p (1920 x 1080) or 1440p (2560 x 1440) if you can stretch to it. If it doesn't say it's an IPS panel, then it probably isn't (it'll likely be a TN panel & the same quality as your current one). Remember too that poor quality monitors are considered an eyesight hazard if you spend any significant amount of time in front of them. My monitor is connected via HDMI and I've had zero issues. Make sure the cable you get is HDMI2 compliant, otherwise it may not support higher resolutions (don't be fooled into buying a really expensive cable: the signals are digital, they either work or they don't. A £100 "professional" cable is no better than a £6 "Basics" cable from Amazon. Just make sure it supports HDMI2.0.

  10. ORBX with P3D v4.1 and FSX

    FTX Central will manage both. It asks you on startup whether you want to manage P3D scenery or FSX scenery in that session. Then it tracks separately your installed P3D and FSX stuff, attached you your account.

    Merry Festivity everybody!
