    Tim,

    I just saw your last post in this thread.

    Not to belabor this, but we are not communicating. Of course you have to save.

    Let's say I'm flying along with a "valid flight plan,"...

    Thanks. I've been away. I'll get right on it, mañana.
  3. Need Advice from an Old Pro on Instrument Approaches!

    Have I mentioned there's no manual for MSFS, at least not one that actually gives you any info on how to fly the planes? (Rhetorical question.)

    Anyway, I am trying to up my skills to the next...

    Thanks for everyone who's tried to help. But here's some good news:

    A week ago, I did 2 things: as advised here, I updated Win 10 and also removed Orbx's "Edgley" plane (installed June 8) from...

    FWIW, this describes my experience exactly. So I don't activate the AP until I've loaded any parameters I want, like ALT and NAV.

    Well, I often put in BOTH origin and destination, as I said, and then follow the GPS route. But I still have no .PLN files in LocalState.

    (Wish this were my biggest headache.)

    I click LOAD the only time it appears after starting up the sim. Maybe I shouldn't call it the the "Welcome Page." It's where you go after you click on the upper left quadrant of the first thing...

    I assumed you meant press LOAD in the sim, from the Welcome page: you can insert parameters or press LOAD to select a saved flight. When I press LOAD at that point, I see nothing like your...

    I must not understand something. Pressing LOAD only displays .flt files. That's because when you save a flight, the sim creates a .flt file. The only .pln files in the sim appear to be canned...

    Even Worse Now!

    I started this thread after the update on May 25, but I now want to look at the forest, instead of the trees:

    Since my last post, MSFS has become totally dysfunctional. I've removed all my...

    I have never used either, so far.

    But I am conducting an experiment: I want to know if shutting down the sim the lo-o-o-o-ng way (ESC; Main Menu; Shut down) makes it more likely that a saved...

    Yes, I have many add-ons, but had almost no CTDs before the update last week. As suggested by the on-screen prompts, before proceeding with that update, I moved the entire Community folder out of...

    Nothing But Trouble After May 25 Update!

    I had two months of CTD-free aviation bliss until May 25, and installation of the last putative "update." Now, I can't open anything in Alaska, and about half of my other attempts to open the sim...

    Two Really Fun Mysteries!

    Thanks, Larry.

    This gives me something to chew on -- tomorrow. Just a few follow-ups for now:

    What is MP?

    What is EGT?

    What does 25" mean?
  22. Somebody Please Help Me on Leaning and Prop Pitches

    I should have asked this years ago, but I have never understood how much to lean my mixture, and when; ditto altering the prop pitch.

    What Causes This?

    This, of course, is Ayres Rock. I can find no add-on of Ayres Rock in my Community folder, although I have seen similar irregularities in some add-ons.
    When I flew closer to the Rock, this anomaly...

    I sometimes leave MSFS open and put the PC in sleep mode, mostly when I want to return later to a flight in progress. This saves the loading time (usually about 6 minutes for me), but it also avoids...
