    C-130 Multi-Player

    Always had problems with the C-130 not playing well with other C-130's in multi-player. Does anyone else have this problem and have they fixed it?

    I have both theyre both different aircraft i havent flown them in a while as i havent ported them into p3d

    I liked the 1011 but dont like the fmc and but it has fat bird feeling which complements it well

    The 727 is also a nice aircraft

    Dont know, its hard to say which is better as they both have their credits and have been around long enough to iron out the bugs

    Don't have it installed at the moment. I think it was merely adding a pop up GPS and "backup" AP - probably an older FS9 737-400 model. I might have added a NAV/GPS switch somewhere. I think it is just a case of fiddling with the default AP Nav/GPS setting until it started to follow the basic FSX flightplan entered into the GPS. Similar machinations required to get the 727 to do the same. I usually abandon aircraft that won't follow a GPS plan, but fly these two CS birds often.
    Well I've been to one World Fair a picnic and a rodeo and that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard come over a set of earphones.

    Thanks Jeansy, much appreciated

    Think it might be the 727 but the 777 is also looking nice LOL spoilt for choices, might get them both but want to pick up a good heli now that I am back interested in FSX again.

    If you switch on the comm radios, it stops the flooding.

    I got the 757-200 and the C-130X this morning. I already had the Just Flight's C-130 on disk, but now I have a software backup with the A model that I was looking for.

    I tried to start the 757 from cold, but I have a "fuel config" light on and I suspect it is preventing me from starting. I downloaded a manual and a video on how to start the 757, still, no start. The only difference is that light and I can't find information on how to fix it.

    For trouble shooting, I have the default FSX flight on opening FSX (no saved flight), I loaded pax and cargo with ACE, I don't see where I can load fuel though. When the 757 is loaded, I turn off fuel control levers and switch off the battery. Then I start with the process of starting up.

    The "fuel config" light is illuminated right from the start, when I loaded the 757.

    Any help/advice will be appreciated.

    Picked up the 777. Hope it likes me . .

    Try starting with a default flight and/or a default model.. don't go straight to the CS757

    At the bottom of the fuel panel are two fuel pump switches.
    Click on the outside of each and the light should go off.
    They are only labelled left and right and easy to miss.

    OK. I am a moron.

    I thought I clicked on the FSX version of the 777 yesterday. Today getting around to installing it, I see I have the P3D version. DOH!!

    I have had no problems at all with CS to date but fear they may not be too sympathetic. I have just emailed them requesting an exchange. Any suggestions on how to approach this?

    Thanks guys,

    I don't think they will be entirely happy that you have posted your
    download link.
    Perhaps you or one of the moderators can delete it.
    Regards,
    Nick

    Copy that. Post edited. Thought that without the order number that would suffice, but always better to be on the safe side. Thanks for pointing it out.

    I think I have been a customer since 2008 and I have not once
    had cause to complain about either their customer service or the
    support forum.
    In fact I agree that the standard of customer service is excellent.

Your screen shot above reminded me of a number of bare metal 1950s textures for the -130A that were done by a man named Nathan Phillips. I've been looking for bare metal early textures for this bird for a long time and it looks like Mr. Phillips made a few. However, the "Phillips" link posted at CS leads to nothing; has anyone heard anything about whether or not these bare metal textures are available?
