    FSUIPC

    hi can anyone tell me what the latest version of fsuipc is for fs 2004 and where to get it from.thanks mick
  7. its just unfortunate that due to security and terrorism we cant go on the flight deck while flying which is quite understandable in this day and age. im sure that the developers off these add on planes go to quite a lot of work when making them,and they are so near in detail to the real thing. just seeing that cockpit was the highlight to the end of my holiday.mick
  8. hi all just got back from spain yesterday,flew from alicante to manchester on the airbus a320. my wife likes the window seat but as long as i can see the wing i love it, especially when on the approach love to see the flaps and spoilers. when we landed i asked the cabin staff if i could see the cockpit and captain,and to my joy and amazement they let me have a look as i was getting off the plan. i am 57 years old and was like a kid with a new toy,the captain was great and took the trouble to go through all the different controls,mostly which i new as the set out is more or less the same as

  10. merry christmas all.how is it that when i am approaching an airport i get the verbal warning from the cockpit (glide slope)ok i may not be on the glide slope but as i correct it the warning still sounds over and over again till i touch down. i now this is a safety system to get me on the correct decent,but over and over again gets on my nerves.is there anywhere i can switch it off in the folders. the two main offending planes are 737 PIC and a340 professional.thanks mick

    vga or dvi to hdmi

    thanks mutley,its quite wierd really because when i was using my monitor screen i could put it on full resolution and get a very good crisp picture,but now i have got it hooked up to the tv i have to lower the resolution because on high resolution settings it is a bit blurred.however the picture is still very good but not as good as the monitor.still working on it though.regards mick

    vga or dvi to hdmi

    thanks mutley have sorted it rang the local computer shop and they told me to get a dvi to hmdi cable and it works fine now,just trying to sort the resolution out on the tv but it looks great.thanks for your reply.regards mick
  13. hi all need your advice again,my wifee got me a 32 inch tv soley for my flight sim,problem i have got is there is no vga socket on the tv only the hdmi.as well as a vga socket on the computer there is also 2 dvi sockets.is it possible that i can get a cable to the respective sockets and it will work ok,somehow i dont think it is going to be as easy as that.the ironic thing is the tv we use downstairs as the vga socket so that would be ok,but the wife wont let me swop the tvs (SPOILSPORT)any body give me any tips in laymans terms would be appreciated.thanks in advance.michael

  24. hi just read this thread with interest,i dont understand all this computer stuff myself especially all these fancy fans.when i switch my computer on i get a slight clattering from i think the psu,i have listened to it closely and it sounds to me like the rotatin fan is slightly catching the psu casing.thats what i think it isn`t a loud noise but it bugs me a bit,after a few minutes it runs normally and i forget about it.it doesn`t affect the performance of my computer in anyway it just bugs me.most likely somthing or nothing.any ideas?sorry for interupting the thread topic just thought it was
