    I'm not sure why that view option was left in. I recall discussion during development that it was felt that the Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) panel on the left console covered everything (pages 32-33 of the manual) and we didn't need a popup. Easy fix is to comment out the "Window03" line in the panel.cfg file in the "Virtavia A-4 Skyhawk 0-1 Clean/panel" folder as shown below. Window00=Main Panel Window01=Radio Stack Window02=GPS // Window03=Autopilot Hope this helps.

    ...on the JustFlight website: Looks like it's getting close to done-- would LOVE to see them release it in time for this weekend, but even the most optimistic reports I have heard have been "end of October". This is one time when I would like to be wrong! Kent

    That is interesting about reverting back to an older model. In times of war... I used to always use the insignia location as a quick guide as to whether it was a C or an E but from all the research for the Virtavia release I found a few exceptions. VA-72 "Blue Hawks", VA-81 "Sunliners", and VA-93 "Blue Blazers" all had a few A-4E's with the stars-n-bars on the forward fuselage. Haven't checked to see if they were of a particular serial number range or transferred from another unit. Another example was VA-46 "Clansmen" off the USS Forrestal. This WIP was started after I had finished my F textures for the release so it was too late to beg for a change in the texture mapping so textures going around the top would still work. These don't so it will probably not be finished....

    Well I got it solved. I started with this: Then I tried selecting the different panel folders with no success and thought I found the solution after selecting the klm texture instead of the klmo, is there a file in there that affects the props?? Don't think so, but okay: . But...... while panning to the rear view...:

    You can get it from the author's (Lamont Clark) website at It worked in P3D v1.4 but I can't say about P3D v2. :ernaehrung004:

    Have uploaded the squadron mate. The particular aircraft was flown by Lt Ernest Christensen who was forced to eject 70 miles offshore on June 23, 1968 due to an engine flame out following a combat mission.

    Paul, I installed your Nav PAnel, and it turned my rotating props into black disks. Is the Nav Panel for FS9 (FS2004) only?

    Interesting comparison. It would also be interesting to see a comparison with the first generation Harrier that the Yak-38 would have been in response to. Comparing it to a Harrier II is like comparing Mirage III specs with those of a Mirage 2000. They both have delta wings but ... :ernaehrung004:

    Thanks for the invite Mike, Since I have the great REX textures for real world weather I will have FSX do the weather engine, since i see no reason to spend money on a weather engine when I have REX. I'm in the midst of making test flights using NDB's for navigation. I'm starting to get the hang of it, but the event will help me become a rookie "has been", I hope :biggrin-new: That Duenna is giving me a headache, It's a p.... in the a... Well..., got just over a week to get ready, have to get back in the cockpit, c ya.

    I built many computers for FSX and other gaming pc's over the years. What you read on Tom's Hardware website is related to modern time games. They, in general, rely more on the gpu then on the cpu, and AMD has done a great job for that market. Now FSX is somewhat outdated, and relies mainly on the cpu. I can confirm by experience that FSX will run better on an Intel processor, and you will have smoother graphics using a NVidia graphics card. As an example: I was using a 512Mb GForce 8800 gt with an Intel Q6600 and reached 25-30mbps with medium high settings. Only thing I saw that could improve, was that distant scenery objects would pop up all of a sudden when you got closer. A freind had a 1 year old AMD card w 2 MB memory he wanted to cell, so I was willing to buy it if it...

    Hey Jaap, Great to see you found us here. I am one of the rookies that will be using your great package. I started the flight with your package a few years agom but didn't get very far, as my fsx pc died on me. In the mean time, I have built a new fsx rig, and am eager to get started. Surely is going to be a steep learning curve.
