  1. I have both products and think both are great. I've recently had to reload my FSX and want to re-install Air Hauler. My question is, both programs suggest/recommend starting FSX inside their respective programs so how does one accomplish this? Currently I'm starting FSX from the "fly now" option inside REX essentials + OD menu. If I re-install AH how do I start up FSX? Are you supposed to start FSX from inside AH? Thank you and happy flying, Gus
  2. I only have REX so I can't say for sure as I don't have a way to compare all the different programs. I will say I've read that REX takes a while to load the weather. I have REX Overdrive for FS9 and REX 2.0 Overdrive for FSX. I haven't downloaded the REX Essentials + for FSX yet b/c it sounds like they are still working out the bugs and the one I use for FSX works like a charm, so I'm going w/ the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it mentality right now". Back to the weather loading times on REX, most of the time on both FS9 & FSX my weather will load as soon as I turn the REX WX engine on a
  3. Do you have the Just Flight 146 or the Quality Wings version? Thanks.
  4. If you fly in the US there is a nice little add-on pack made by Flight Sim Voices. I think it was around $6 US. Here is the link, you can add them to other things like the PMDG NGX, Level D, Xpax, FS Passengers etc...it's nice, I like the random voices it adds to Radar Contact. http://www.flightsimvoices.com/ EDIT: Here is a list of some of the pilot voices you can hear: http://www.flightsimvoices.com/usfcv1-demo.html
  5. I recently switched to DX10 with the new shader it actually works like a champ. The only downside to DX10 is not 100% of the planes/textures work as they are greyed out since they aren't full FSX or DX10 compatible. Other than that I think it looks better than when I was using FSX with the ENB. To install the new DX10 shader and a great "how to" I'd suggest this link: http://forum.avsim.n...the-how-to-doc/ I've used several different ENB most came from the REX forums. I think you have to be a member there, it's free to register like here, but once you register you can view the forums. There
  6. Maybe it had something to do w/ memory, I had been opening and close FS over and over while trying out different panels. Today when I start my FS machine after having it shut off all night, un-docking the top-down view and dragging it to my 2nd monitor in FS9 at KSEA didn't cause any problems at all. So far so good, having a 2nd monitor is AWESOME!
  7. Very nice! I enjoy flying the C152 so I'll mess w/ adding some bitmaps to the 2D panel. Thank you sir.
  8. Ok, thank you I'll keep checking on it to see what might be the problem. Yes I'm in window mode so I'm not sure what else to look at. Thanks again, Gus
  9. Not sure if this helps or not, I know this is an older topic but maybe it might help someone out. http://http://www.carenado.com/CarSite/Portal/index.php?accion=update If you look about 1/2 down the page they have one for "Several FS2004 Aircraft-Bouncing Issues" javascript:fDescargax('BOUNCINGPATCH.zip')
  10. I agree, after flying around for a while with it, it sure is nice to have it all in one spot. The strange thing is, I got my monitor cable in the mail today (thanks to a buddy who had an extra :-).....when I fly in FS9 using the default C172, I open up the kneeboard and this is a first for me, I click on the "A" and it opens up a drop-down menu that gives me all sorts information and places to go, I have no idea where I picked up, well maybe from one of my VAs, not sure though, but it allows me inside FS9 to go to airnav, flightaware, weather, etc.. so I have all I need. I haven't tried it i
  11. Ok, thank you sir, I read through the link you posted. So if I'm reading it properly you can't add gauges where previous gauges are not? I'm hoping there is a way. ie. the Just Flight C152, I can change the radio stack, the transponder and the ADF but I can't click on and change the audio panel. I'd really REALLY like to update that panel. Is there no way to highlight the area somehow, black it out, then add a gauge? Is there a way to create an entirely new panel with the "main panel" of an aircraft as a template?
  12. I'm not 100% but I'm assuming it should load what you normally have without Orbx. If I switch mine back to "default" and fly in/around my Fly Tampa scenery (i.e. St Maarten) my Fly Tampa scenery shows up like normal. I assume the only way to make FSX go back to the real default is to go into your scenery library and un-check the add-on sceneries you no longer want to load.
  13. Ok, thank you gents for the replies. I will set to Default with not in Orbx areas, i.e. Texas, Florida, etc...I assume though, if I'm departing a non-Orbx scenery but arriving in an area covered (i.e. flying into Portland) from say Denver then I should have it on, correct? Thanks again. Gus
  14. Ok, this sounds like my next "quest"....currently I have 2 PCs, this PC and the FSX machine. Both are hooked up to HDMI TVs via HMDI Cables. My graphics cards on both monitors have HDMI hook-ups, they also both have VGA plugs. The newer PC also has an LCD output on the graphics card but I don't think I'd be going that route. My question is, if I currently have, on my FSX PC the HDMI TV hooked up via HDMI cable, will it cause issues if I connect this (separate) monitor to the FSX PC via VGA? I'm assuming all I'll need to do is on this monitor change the "input source" from HDMI to VGA. I do
  15. Thank you sir, I only have the one monitor, I guess I have 2 if you include this one but it's not hooked up the FSX machine and I'm not 100% sure how to go about doing that. If there is a readme/how to on that I could try that too. Right now the GPS530 works great if I press my "GPS key" it pops up and I can do my thing, I just thought it would be cool to add it to the right-side of the panel, basically where I would expect the glove box to be. The area that I'm wanting to edit is found in the texture "172_2_C". I know how to repaint planes so working w/ this texture file I'm pretty sure
