  1. Many thanks, old chap. You've given me plenty with which to kick off. A most pleasing way to kick off 2019.
  2. Emerging from the Brexit mists might I have a recommendation for a civil helicopter to add to my Steam hangar ? Many thanks.

    I’m beginning to have some thoughts about switching away from my Track I/R and moving into Virtual Teality with either SE:FSX or X-Plane. I've yet to complete the former's Missions but II realise that X-Plane has the better graphics, the choice of which leaves me undecided. i have a few pennies to spare and, having seen a sooner-dooper rig recently it looked very interesting. I realise that I'll have to upgrade my own rig somewhat but hey! one comes this way but once. i'd be delighted to have your thoughts, gentlemen. Thank you.

    As always, many thanks to you all for your advice. I'll sit back and wait for that major break through that will eventually tempt me way from my Track I/R. Sorry, John that you were so disappointed.

    Hmm. I suppose one is bound to get some conflicting, well meant advice. I was 'aroused' when watching a video by Frooglesim dated 31 May 2016 in which he displayed a great deal of enthusiasm for 'Fly Inside' using either Oculus or HTC with FSX and P3D. i thouigyht that it looked promising and I assume that it has been improved over the passing of time. As always, I thank you, chaps for taking the trime to considere your advice and inputting it. IF I do splash out I'll post further thoughts.

    Function keys

    I have a Mk 710 wireless Logitech keyboard that sports F keys across its uppermost key layout, running from F1 to F12. Is there a way in which I can cancel each of its individual functions beyond 'Do nothing' to being able to employ each F key within the SE: FSX key settings? I'drather use them there than in instant connections with chosen websites. Thanks.

    Thanks, Tim. Cracked it now and all is peace and light once more.
  9. Thank you, gentlemen. It's very satisfying to be gliding through my eighties. I feel 'maturity' lies just around the corner.

    Tribulation with SE: FSX. Recently I reinstalled the EMB 500 Phenom 300 and the Navigraph Pack. I had removed it some time ago in order to free up some hard drive space. The gremlins struck immediately. In an attempt to improve things, I promptly removed both of them but to no avail. Now, whilst I can select can still select an aircraft and place it at an airfield of my choosing, and the starting point I want, I cannot get any input for the engines at all. Meanwhile, Track I?R works perfectly. So, what's the problem? Seems to be between my Saitek X52 Pro and the rest of the world. Any thoughts or commiserations?

    A little more. Are there any users of FSUIPC.4 out there who can offer advice on setting flap détents? I have studied the manual but remain baffled. Phew !

    Thanks, Wain. Onward and Upward once more.

    Right....having dabbled with FSUIPC I have laid it aside to concentrate on solving the total lack of response from my Saitek X52 Pro stick. I took a very deep breath and uninstalled, then reinstalled, SE: FSX. Now everything is working tickety-boo. Praise be! Thanks for all your suggestions, fellows. Yippeee.

    I doff my hat to you, Joe. You aren't just a handsome chap after all. The villain was that 'fsuipc.dll' file after all. Everything now appears to be all sweetness and light. Hurrah Hurrah Hurrah. I feel five years younger!

    Thank you, Joe. More to investigate in the morning. i appreciate your comment, Wain. There has been a spell of teeth being gnashed. Tomorrow, the struggle will be renewed.

    I suspect that we have moved a step closer to that uninstall/reinstall plan. Joe. I am most grateful for the time you are taking here in helping me.

    Grr. I followed to the letter but it didn't rebuild that file after rebooting both the PC and then the Sim. What next, Joe? Perhaps I should add that I paid for, and installed recently, that FSUIPC programme and followed its recommendations for setting up button and key assignments. Remove it?

    Exactly so, my sunburnt advisor. My gremlin problem is the failure of my Saitek X52 Pro failing completely to send any instructions to SE: FSX. The stick is functioning perfectly according to its Control panel. I can select an aircraft from the list and place it on any airfield of my choice. That's no problem. Seated, looking at the instrument panel, there's no indication that the engine is running even though an external view shows that it is. Furthermore, if I use my stick to increase the throttle there is no response on the instruments.. I feel that I need to uninstall/reinstall SE: FSX. do let me have your thoughts. Thanks for getting back to me, Joe.

    Just checked out the stick's Control Panel reaction and all was perfect so it doesn't appear to be the stick. Hmm. Do I need to uninstall/reinstall SE: FSX?
  22. Many thanks for all that, Captain. Now I've to select the ones that I would like to buy. Not too keen on paying out for that microphone. Can't imagine myself ever needing it but all shall be revealed..
  23. I am tempted to send you a photo of the Gum Tree at the top of which I would surely be were it not for the help you guys give me. So today's query. I'm considering buying Logitech's Wireless headphones with the microphone attached. I own their keyboard and mouse- both wireless - and would ask what would be the advantage of that microphone? To whom, or what, might I be able to communicate? ATC or the aircraft itself? "Add another level of flaps??? Please advise. Thanks.
  24. Many thanks, gentlemen. The microphone headset is not the way to gio after all. Point taken, Jo. Must congratulate you on your frugality, Atan. Very impressive. Clearly you save on shaving tackle as well. You must be worth a small fortune. You've both brought a grin back to my face.
  25. I have a copy that I bought back in July 2009. I'd like to give it a run through once more but will it install in my current rig safely and effectively? You think? Win 10 Pro 64 bit. CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K.
