Re: Prepar3DV5 Compatibility

Hi Martin,
Despite your heroic efforts to get FT sceneries working quickly with P3Dv5, I feel that you should be planning on a clean-sheet installation process for them all once you are happy that they are working. That will enable everyone to ensure that they are in a stable state.
Regards, Richard

Re: Universal installers

Hi Martin, I fear that the announcement of the universal updater has been quite vague and messy. When I download and execute FlyTampa_Universal_P3D_Setup.exe I receive the error message 'Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access ...

Re: Boston 4.2 (Prepar3D V4 only)

Hi Martin,
Many thanks for your prompt reply.
I had forgotten that FlyTampa is sold through SimMarket.
Having rerun the installer, everything mysteriously works correctly. Not sure what happened.
Onward and upwards!
Cheers, Richard

Re: Boston 4.2 (Prepar3D V4 only)

Hi Martin,
Even when I run the setup.exe as Admin, I receive a message saying that I may not have sufficient permissions to run.
What am I doing wrong?

Re: hello i am new user of this forum

Hi Kretodweld,
Welcome to the forum! You will find many pilots here willing to help you.
Can you give some details about what help you would like?
Perhaps also include details of your operating system and flight simulator.

Verifying my airports within P3Dv.2

Hi, To ensure that I have my FlyTampa sceneries installed correctly with P3Dv4.2, I have flown in/out of each as a part of a grand world trip. At the same time, I have made a video of each of my arrival/departures. If you would like to view the airports, go to my YouTube channel at https://www.youtu...

Re: Internal server error

Hi Martin,
I doubt that it has anything to do with e-mail. I was trying at the time to use your website. When that caused the error, I tried to report it to the email address given. When that failed as well, my only recourse was to post the whole process as a forum post.
I hope that this helps.

ILS15R misaligned?

Tried my first landing at KBOS with the latest scenery version today, but found the ILS aligned around 30-50ft to the right. :o
I was landing with only 1/2 mile visibility so had little time to react.
Is there a fix for this?

Re: OMDB repeatedly abends P3D4.1 on approach

I have problems also trying to takeoff at OMDB.
Pushed back from stand B18 successfully but, when I started to taxi along taxiway A, P3Dv4.1 immediately entered an unrecoverable hang.
I then tried to start from stand A1 and this taxi out and takeoff was without problems. :x

Re: OMDB repeatedly abends P3D4.1 on approach

Hi Martin, I have now re-videoed the OMDB arrival but instead, landed on rwy 30R without trouble. The only change made was to press the Reset to Defaults button in the FlyTampa Configurator and then reset the parameters to my choice of enabling everything. After the abend, I was able to successfully...

OMDB repeatedly abends P3D4.1 on approach

I have now had my PMDG 777-300ER crash on P3Dv4.1 twice at the same location on approach to runway 30L at OMDB. This is during attempts to produce a video of the landing for YouTube. Luckily this means that I have the evidence. Please see the end of the video at http://youtu.be/ar7E7ssouPQ on my You...

For such a great update for CYYZ, its release seems to be a light hidden under a bushel. :wink:
