CHANGING ICAO AIRPORT CODES IN P3DV3 WEATHER BINS

Good day, Can someone please advise me how to go about changing the ICAO code in the P3D weather bins for an airport which has had a name change and now has a new ICAO code? I'm not sure whether doing this with a text editor will do all that is necessary. Any help will be much appreciated. Regards, ...

JOHANNESBURG OR TAMBO INTL AIRPORT (FAOR)

Good day, The above airport is not included in the weather bins of P3Dv3.4. It's predecessor FAJS is still there. This is preventing add-ons from working properly. Can I simply change the ICAO code from FAJS to FAOR in the bins and, if not, how should the bins be updated? Your help will be appreciat...

CHANGE IN METAR DATA : P3D V3.4

Good day, Could someone please help me understand how AS16 metar information is transferred to P3D V3.4 and why the AS16's metar's dew point is reduced on loading the sim. This reduction in the dew point to below 7*C (e.g. 14*C to 5*C) happens regularly at Johannesburg OR Tambo Intl Airport (FAOR) a...

Re: AFCAD EDITING SOFTWARE

Thank you Jorge. I now see what I may have been doing wrong and will try using ADE again. I have the same version as the one you are using.

AFCAD EDITING SOFTWARE

Good day, I shall be most grateful, if someone will give me guidance on which afcad editing software to use with the latest version of Prepar3D. I have tried AFX and ADE and neither seem to work satisfactorily. In cases where there are a number of airports included in one APX file, such as LFMN, all...

Re: WHITE 'BAR' APPEARS ON SCREEN WHEN LOADING P3D

Elaine, the exe.xml in ProgramData is the one causing the white bar.
I have FSDreamteam GSX loaded as a separate application and it is working OK, so it could be deleted from this xml file without problems, in need.

Re: WHITE 'BAR' APPEARS ON SCREEN WHEN LOADING P3D

Sorry Elaine, I omitted to deal with the folders, which I see I cannot send to you as such. Perhaps there is a better way of getting this information to you and your help will be appreciated.

Re: WHITE 'BAR' APPEARS ON SCREEN WHEN LOADING P3D

Eureka Elaine! The problem lies in the xml files, so your supposition that the white bar is being loaded by add-on software is spot on! To save time, I attach the two folders created on my desktop, which contain the xml files, for your scrutiny. I am still trying to learn extensible machine language...

Re: WHITE 'BAR' APPEARS ON SCREEN WHEN LOADING P3D

Elaine, It appears to load as a separate window. If I press alt+tab, it disappears from the virtual cockpit forward view and runs in the background. When I press alt+tab to cycle through loaded applications such as weather, etc, it shows as an application in its own window. I have tried unsuccessful...

Re: WHITE 'BAR' APPEARS ON SCREEN WHEN LOADING P3D

Thank you for all your suggestions, Elaine. My choice of plane is Aerosoft's A320 for the time being, but I also have PMDG's 737NGX installed. Until I feel like flying the 737NGX, I have used it as an AI aircraft, as PMDG have paint varieties that are specific to South Africa.Thanks for pointing out...

WHITE 'BAR' APPEARS ON SCREEN WHEN LOADING P3D

Good day, I have recently installed a number of sceneries, all which appear to be working OK. Somewhere in this process a narrow white 'bar' has suddenly appeared and gets loaded with P3D. It appears with the virtual cockpit view in the upper left hand corner. It will run in the background if I pres...
