  1. Not sure if you can just wait for this to cool or not, possibly or might need to reset the plane. Go to your right hand FMC, hit PMDG setup, then aircraft, then failures and you should see the brake failure highlighted. From memory there will be options to clear it but I can’t remember if you might still need to restart the plane or not. Also when you are in that area it’s worth looking through the options pages 1-4 as it gives options to have service based failures turned on or off or random. Lots of options overall for this plane, take your time, explore it. it’s an excellent aircraft. I’m not an expert by any means but hope this helps a bit. Rob
  2. Hi Shane, my hunch is that you have overheated your brakes. go to the outside view and look at the landing gear. if overheated one or both sides will be glowing red.Not sure if you can overcome this via the RH FMC options or not. Rob
  3. Thanks for the roadmap. My question is a little like some others concerning YPPH. Whether or not YPPH for P3D is still in the making? I ask this as from memory it was announced back in 2019, confirmed in May 2020 but there has been little if any information since as as noted, does not appear in the roadmap. I am not impatient nor unappreciative of the direction of Orbx but as MSFS has changed so much of the landscape since 2019, some info regarding whether or not YPPH is still on the radar for P3D would be helpful in terms of another option. Thank you, Robert
  4. 73 recently my daughter told me that it was time my 73 year old body had a serious discussion with my 36 year old head. Rob
  5. Yes Airwind, that is how mine looked. if I ignored and continued, it ran endlessly to no effect. To check, just follow the pathway I have indicated and see if you find a scenery file. if so it will probably be empty, just delete it and if that is the problem it will fix it. I also ran the syncroniser following. Good luck! Rob
  6. Just to say my problem has been solved. Another ticket was the clue, an empty scenery file in C/Users/Dad/AppData/Roaming/Lockheed Martin/P3Dv4.5. It should not have been there, deleted it and problem solved. Hopefully this might help you gsand. Cheers, Rob
  7. This was my problem too.........thanks for the heads up and the comment from Nick. I have had a support ticket in for over a week, saw this, checked my files and found the offending file as above and bingo...fixed! I will note it against my ticket, one task less for the support crew. Rob
  8. Hi again. I sent this request almost a week ago, originally under Vector support. It was bumped over to Central but to date I haven't had any response. I notice a few other seemingly similiar issues by others, plus many other support requests so I'm not being impatient. However I realised since posting that I only added the Vector error log so have now added the (P3D 4.5) scenery config plus the Central log.Thank you, appreciated. Robert central.log scenery.cfg Vector 1.6.3 Exception Text.docx
  9. Hi, today I updated Vector through the new Central. It appeared to download and install seamlessly but when I ran the auto configurator a window appeared stating it had encountered an unhandled exception related to a synchronous/asynchronous issue. If ignored it appears to continue but does not stop (and I presume is unable to work). I have cold booted the computer, uninstalled and re-installed Vector 1.6.3 but the error remains. I have attached the Vector 1.6.3 Exception Text.docseparately and will appreciate your support. With regards, Robert Anderson
  10. You have certainly rekindled memories with this post, I also caught the bug with FS4 on our first Atari computer. I recall the Lear jet panel as well and learning to get it airborne off Meigs as well as being able to distinguish Sears Tower. Remember the break through when the Orange lights at night included blue lights lighting up the airport when the runway became a little more than a thin line amongst the green. Ah......the memories!
  11. Hi Max, don't know if this helps but I have had this problem when a download is interrupted and resumes. It seems to occur with one download server so try a new download with a different server option. Good luck. Rob
  12. Jarrad, just to say thank you. As a Perth guy also who has been enjoying your work for years these airports are home to me and you have replicated them beautifully and to soon be using them in P3DV2 is fantastic.
  13. Hi Jeroen, I had the same problem at Jandakot a while back. Check that you have the scenery set at least to dense, this might bring people flow back, not sure but it did for me. Rob
  14. It seems to be the whole patch thats missing, somehow not finding the right pathway I suspect so I wonder what has corrupted that. Yes I did install the latest Orbxlibs. Just a puzzle, seems that no-one else has had this problem so it must be confined to my hardware. Might have to do complete clean install - it will take all weekend!! Thanks for the interest anyway Tim. Rob
  15. Hi Tim, yes that is the installation, the airport is fine its just that I can't activate the patch, people flow etc even though it says it has installed correctly. Second thought - I did recently install the day/night switcher, might coincide with my problem?? Rob
