Hi Sven

Thank you

I certainly installed VAFS as administrator, and I always run it as administrator. The files are correctly saved, and if I just load the VAFS saved position without VAFS running everything is fine.

However, if I go to the departure airport with VAFS running then ask VAFS to load the flight to continue it, it either
1) ends the flight, having flown 0 miles with a landing rate of 0 fps
2) loads the saved position to land at LXGB

It does not revert to the flight I am trying to continue - I'm sure I will work out a solution

Kind regards

Mike,

If it loads the flight and it shuts down, could it be that you may have touched down, when it crashed? The Resume flight feature needs A LOT of work, and as such it is hard for me to speculate. However, seeing as you are running the Steam Edition, of which VAFS 5 was not programmed for, could it be that it is not correctly reading the simulator, due to the new file location? The SAVE flight could also be corrupt; possibly when the sim was crashing ...

Do you have the latest FSUIPC?
Regards,

Sven2157

Hi Sven

I have now installed the latest version of FUISPC and deleted a VAFS file in the PC/Documents/ Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition Files folder which I don't think should have been there

Cross fingers this appears to have fixed the problem

Thanks for your help

Kind regards

Hi Sven

The fight restoration process is now perfect

What I do is this ( I'm not sure this is the correct way but it reloads the flight and aircraft settings perfectly)

1) Start FSX at the departure airport - when loaded then;
2) Start VAFS under administrator ( do NOT try to restore the saved flight at this point )
3) Load the saved VAFS flight from the list of FSX saved flights ( the one saved every 300 seconds )
4) Start the flight from the saved option in VAFS ( when VAFS has been started under (2) above )

Anyway whatever was not being done before it is fine now

Thanks for your help :D

Merry Xmas

No. Please start a new thread. When you re-post the picture, please click the DETAILS button, then make a screen shot of it. That way, I can see a bit better what the problem may be ...

If I don't hear from you by then ... Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays! :ugeek:
