  1. Another city that needs some Orbx love is San Francisco! Hopefully this is being added sometime soon. Jhan Jensen
  2. Hi All, It's been a while since I heard any news on KSGU. I'm hoping that means its turning into a mini region, there is so much beautiful landscape around it that drawing a line would be hard. So was curious if Orbx is still working on it or was it quietly cancelled? Thanks, Jhan
  3. Hi Nick, I went through all of my files (all of the deep down config stuff) and found the issue. You are right in that there was a cross linking of Boxed and SE editions and once that chain was broken, all was good. So thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Jhan
  4. Doug, this is only getting stranger. So I started both FSX and FSX:SE, made sure Central was not running. Started it back up and nothing had changed, deleted the .json as well as resync simulator. Still would only show FSX:SE (see below). One thing it did not capture was when I hovered the cursor over each, the hint showed the folder in which they were installed. I clicked Fix issues, picked FSX and gave it the path; still isn't showing up and it never allowed me to add it. So once I go into Central 4, under FSX:SE, I just installed Orbx Library. What I noticed is that in FSX (boxed) it change that scenery.cfg (see Scenery-FSX.cfg in the attached). It did not change scenery-FSX-SE.cfg as I would have expected. When I looked at the .log and .json, I see that it has the following... "configuration": { "dllXmlPath": "C:\\Users\\Jhan_\\AppData\\Roaming\\Microsoft\\FSX\\dll.xml", "exeXmlPath": "C:\\Users\\Jhan_\\AppData\\Roaming\\Microsoft\\FSX\\exe.xml", "mainConfigPath": "C:\\Users\\Jhan_\\AppData\\Roaming\\Microsoft\\FSX\\fsx.cfg", "sceneryConfigPath": "C:\\ProgramData\\Microsoft\\FSX\\scenery.cfg", "terrainConfigPath": "C:\\FSP\\FSXSE-XP-FSW\\steamapps\\common\\FSX\\terrain.cfg" It isn't putting them in FSX-SE for DLL,EXE,Main,Scenery. It is placing them in the FSX directories. So now when I start, I am getting errors (Note the ORBX directory was created in FSX-SE and not FSX (I left that one deleted to test this), therefore the .cfg is incorrect for FSX) I looked at both the DLL it has ObjectFlow.dll in the wrong one. I can keep using FTX Central 3 for FSX and FSX-SE, as it seems to have them working right. Strange that it wants to criss-cross FSX and FSX:SE. Let me know what else you need to help diagnose this. Thanks, Jhan central.logcentral.json Scenery-FSX-SE.cfgScenery-FSX.CFG
  5. I will try running them just to make sure. Will report back in a few.
  6. Hi, Operating system: Windows 10, 19H2 Simulator: FSX Boxed / FSX Steam Issue: To make this kind of a long story short, I still have to have FSX Boxed, FSX:Steam, P3Dv3, P3Dv4 for beta testing that I do. I would love to dump both FSX, but there are still a lot of users out there and so to help them, I have a lot of sims installed. I also have XP10 and XP11 installed. Let me get to the point. Under FTX Central 3, when I start it I get a menu to select FSX / FSX:Steam/ P3Dv3 / P3Dv4 / XP11 (using short version names). However when I start Central 4.0.27 I only get FSX / P3Dv3 / P3Dv4 / XP11. I've deleted the Option.json that it mentions in the manual, I try to add a missing one and select FSX:Steam and the directory. When I do this, I loose FSX. Am I doing something wrong? Or is only ONE FSX type allowed? Thanks, Jhan central.json central.log
  7. Doug, Sorry it has been a couple of days, had family commitment. So I did what you said, moved ObjectFlow to the P3D directory and it still had issues. I wiped out everything Orbx, AppData (Roaming/Local), and uninstalled Central 4. So the ONLY thing I had is the Sim and Global installed (Global was already in the P3D dir). I installed FTX Central 3.x and then downloaded Object Flow 2 and so it was the old way. Loaded P3D and KIAH worked great, no issues. Loaded Central 4.0.27 and noticed that it moved ObjectFlow over to the new directory, but everything still worked great. I've loaded up a couple of dozen Orbx addons and it is still happy. I would pass this along to Ben McClintlock, the option to install Libraries into the Orbx Library is an option. If that isn't the right way, is there a way to disable people putting Libraries there? Anyway all working, thanks for your help. This item can be closed.
  8. Doug, Attached are three files, I threw in the scenery_add-ons.xml for good measure. I actually did this on another machine with a clean install of P3Dv4.5 HF2 and then added in a few Orbx items; the main ones discussed before (Libraries, ObjectFlow 2, Global). Still have the scenery issue, but I now know exactly what file seems to be causing it. The first two are using the new Orbx Library, Global is in the sim directory. C:\FSAdd-ons\Orbx Library\p3dv4\Orbx Libraries\ORBX\Scripts\custom.gb_base\Landclass\scenery\lclookup.bgl Date/Size on it is 10/03/2016, 49KB. I had this problem a long time ago in Hawaii, FSX days I think. But back then I used the unify LCLOOKUP (migrate tool I think it was called) and it cleared it. I haven't see that migration tool in the new Central, but if I add .off to the end of the lclookup.bgl; the missing textures around KIAH comeback to being right. scenery.cfg scenery.cfg scenery_add-ons.xml
  9. Doug, I have plenty of Orbx products. I've been having this problem of this weird texture and since I beta test for a lot of other devs, I've learned when you have a problem...trouble shoot by installing one at a time. I left Orbx to the end and so when P3Dv4 was stable, no problems; I installed Orbx Libraries and Object Flow 2 then start the sim and see the result. I did this with all of the other addons with this method. It isn't that I don't own a ton of Orbx, because I do; but I wanted to find the issue and that is how I found it. Now that I have someone attention... I've played more and wondering if I might have something wrong in the .cfg and .xml files. Also note that I put everything into the main Central library location; ie not the Simulator Directory. 1 FSDreamTeam Exclude << Used for GSX Level 2 >> 2 Orbx Libraries Lookup << Installed with Central 4 >> 3 Orbx Libraries Global << Installed with Central 4 >> 4 through << All my XML based scenery addons >> 35 36 through << All my .CFG based scenery addons >> 49 50 Addon Scenery 51 FTXAA_ORBXLIBS << Start of my Orbx addons >> and so on and so forth I have added several small Orbx addons to ensure the problem didn't go away; it didn't. I have even re-formatted my drive to ensure it wasn't like a virus or another program causing it. Do these entries look right? Jhan
  10. All, I recently redid my computer and have come across a strange problem. If I don't have anything Orbx installed, load up the default KIAH. It looks normal, really boring but I have a tan-ish dirt, as expected. Then I start Central and just install Orbx Libraries and Orbx Object Flow 2. The airport ground texture (the area between runways) is black with a lot of neon green splats here and there. ALL default airports have this weird ground dirt. I have remove them both in Central, the regular ground texture returns without issue. The second picture is with everything Orbx removed. What is going on? I've even uninstalled Content and Scenery and re-installed, came back. Thanks, Jhan
  11. Hi Mitchell, Yep thanks that worked like a charm! I appreciate the help on getting this fixed. Jhan
  12. Hi,central.log I am getting an error and I've looked here in the forums and tried several things. Startup Central 4.0.6 I have three airports that needed to be updated, these are YLIL, YMML. and YMUI. I click on one then Click Update I get an popup or I get the spinning wheel of death The error popup says that Error Error: An error occurred while trying to install a product dependency. (ObjectFlow) I read one place is to go to %Documents%/Prepar3D V4 Add-ons and delete Orbx ObjectFlow 2 directory. Then Click Sync Simulator in Help. This does not work. The log shows the error ObjectFlow isn't installed or is out of date. Operating system: Windows 10 19H1 Simulator: Prepard3d 4.5 HF1+ Screenshot: Issue:
  13. Guess we should also say RIP, Regions. I am still not sure I like the TrueEarth ones better. One upcoming airport truly needs a region around it, some of the most spectacular scenery will be lost without it. KSGU and the red rocks of Snow Canyon State Park, Zions and Bryce Canyon NPs would be a really good area to explore. MCE Utah is one of their best sellers, it is because of the raw beauty of Utah. Jhan
  14. Will the P3D version be updated with some of the changes the XP11 will be getting?
  15. While it is not my home airport or even continent, however, I am glad to see Orbx hasn't given up on P3D products. I love large area sceneries so will have to keep an eye out for this one. To me it seems like every new product coming out is for 1) XP11, 2) AS2, 3) that other sim again.... oh yeah P3D.
