Hi guys Need some advice here (probably from Joe or Needles..??) I've been wanting to use Plan G for ages but as I use a Triple Head to go with my 3 screens (in Full screen mode) I can't run it on my 4th screen unless I network. I brought my husbands HP machine out of 'retirement', chucked some extra memory in it, connected it to the home network via an Ethernet switch/hub, but I've had nothing but problems.. Every time I press the 'connect button' about 3 seconds later I get an error message 'Plan_G3 has stopped working' and it closes. Looking at the Plan-G Log I can see that it is trying to initiate the SimConnect connection, but it says 'attempt timed out' Both PCs are running Win7, both are connected to the Home Network and can see each other I have tried: Turning off the firewall on both Turning off the antivirus on both I have 'pinged' both PCs and they can see each other fine Used the automatic IP address Re-set the FSX computer to a Static IP address Changed the Port from 4505 to 4506 (strangely the instructions state that you can only have ports between 4500 to 4510, but a check on the ports list via 'NetStat' shows ports from 41294 to 50739!!) Tried setting up the SimConnect.XML as IPV6 AND IPV4 - (when I found that IPV6 wasn't working I re-wrote the SimConnect.xml to IPV4, but realised that each time I changed the details in the Location option on PlanG that it decided to keep reverting to the IPV6 settings so I had to uninstall PlanG, delete all the folders that were still on my HD, and cleared the registry... ) Tried all versions of the 'Templates' included in the PlanG User Manual, to no avail Shouted loudly at my PC.. reckon it must be hard of hearing At this point, I am left with the following options: Accepting Pan G will never work with my set up, although the millions of happy users indicate it works when you get the settings right Purchasing WideFS - no problem with this as I have the thoroughly fantastic FSUIPC and if it works, it will be a small price to pay for the 8 hours I've already spent checking through everything to eliminate the obvious Hoping that the great minds on the Hanger can com up with an option I haven't thought of ! Suggestions? Commiserations? Hammer / Baseball bat (for those across the pond from Blighty) ? I'm going to give this till tomorrow night before I flex the MasterCard and give Mr Dowson a small token of my thanks..
Hi Mh'ers, Newbie to Plan G. I've tried to find the answer on the Plan G forum but have not been successful. Quick question: The "Perf. Speed" and "Perf. Fuel" fields in the Aircraft Profiles section are terms that I'm not familiar with. Could they be translated to "Endurance Speed (Vbe) and Endurance Fuel" in North America speak? Thanks
Hi Is there a way to only show airports/airfields on the map and turning everything else off? Performance is a bit slow on my machine scrolling the map - usable though Thanks, Jim
