  1. I'm seeing a strange effect in the on-screen FSX menu. Has anyone seen this before? The screenshot is the top left corner of my FSX (window mode). Any ideas as to what's causing it? It is not happening all the time and I'm not able to correlate it with any particular aircraft. Doesn't affect the performance of the menu.
  2. I've Been Using 3 24in Led wide screen Monitors For Some time Now. Is there a way to widen the angle of view or zoom bock to be able to see more of the instrement panel and the runway at the same time? I Can move the camera view back with control keys but then the seat back or the bulkhead blokes the view? Also is there a way to stop or disable the head movement ? FSX GOLD I find it quite disconcerting when accelerating down the runway to have my view disapear behind the seat back or bulkhead?? I've seen u-tube videos using Ezeedock camera? Would this help?
  3. Hello fellow pilots, I would love to buy the iFly 737-600, etc series but I am a little tentative that everything will work out OK if I am using Windows 8, help please! Walter
  4. Flew from Dallas to Houston in an iFly 737 last night and after 20 minutes the screen froze. Same thing again today with a Capt Sim 737 although I got to Houston but half way back to Dallas, after about 1hr 10minutes it froze again. No addon scenery just Rex. No matter what keyboard buttons I hit nothing happened, the only thing I could do was reset the PC. Any suggestions to what is causing this will be gratefully received. Thanks all.
  5. Whatever ac I fly is fine until I instant replay and then sometimes, only sometimes I get either a black screen or strange graphics; black skies, distorted images, bits of ac, blurred scenery. I've switched on/off combinations of Rex, ftx, NE, long or short flights in my diagnostics but as the problem is inconsistent I cannot pin it down. The worst offending ac is the JF 146. Ideas anyone? Thanks.
  6. Hi guys, I need some assistance please. I have just explored the REX application a bit more than I previously have & have found It has a flight planning facility and weather GPS thing. I have set up my route on the flight plan screen & then proceeded to set up the weather selecting the "random weather" option. I have generated a weather scenario and carried on to the Fly Now option within the REX GUI. After this point it will boot up FSX & the weather GPS thing. Once FSX main menu is up and running I will open up the saved flight plan created in rex but opened through F
  7. I have installed the freeware Tucano by Simshed. On the whole I am pleased with the aircraft, but I have one issue with it. When the aircraft is started up, the engine goes to full throttle and then returns to idle. I am sure this this realistic, but the problem is that the brakes will not hold the aircraft back when this is done. This results in the aircraft rushing forward by a fairly long way until the revs drop nd the brakes come into effect. Not so good when you are on the stand. How can this be change? Any suggestions would be good!
  8. I have an issue with FSX instrument panels. When I open one up from the menu it appears for a fraction of a second and the its gone. Anyone know how to get them back?
  9. First off, Please spread the word! This is to all the people who like getting pay-ware aircraft, can spread this info to other flight-sim enthusiasts, and are subscribers to the Just Flight newsletter. This is the text that my Just Flight Newsletter reads: A380 SCAM - BEWARE! We're sorry to have contacted you about this via out eshot/Newsletter subscriber list, but it appears that the crooks behind Genuine Simulations have sent out an email about their A380 which has very clearly been designed to look very similar to a Just Flight email. PLEASE BE ASSURED THAT GENUINE SIMUL
  10. I installed madeira X without any problem, but the rocks surrounding the airport are elongated vertically and look like spears sticking up into the sky. I've been on the Aerosoft forums to no avail. I've tried editing sfx .bgl files also to no avail. Anyone got any ideas??
  11. Hi everybody I would need some help regarding my latest payware aircraft.....PMDG's 737 NGX. It's a wonderful aircraft, I definitely love it, but the fact is that it crashes in some occasions... If i take a look at the map and then get back to FSX, i get a whole black screen and the hateful Microsoft's fatal error.... or, if I apply differential thrust, for example for lining up on the runway, it does the same, but by freezing the actual screen, instead of showing the black screen. Now, as I have paid 70 bucks, I'd love to solve this pretty annoying issue.... Any ideas? I'm
  12. I have been able to install the Eagle Soft hanger at different airports in FS9. I have not been able to do the same in FSX. Can this be done and if so how? I use Windows 7 home premeam 64 bit..
  13. For reasons too boring to go into here I have decided to re install FSX. Some questions, all replies in the simplest terms please. 1. Do I install in the (x86) files or elsewhere? 2. Do I need to have permission UACs etc? 3. Should I shut down and reboot after every add on download? And any other useful installation info/tips would be gratefully received. Sorry this is such basic stuff but I want to get this nailed down so I can get back to enjoying flying. Thanks All.
  14. I have just splashed out on RC. I have been looking through the Airline/company name in the general tab and cant find an entry for the RAF. Am i going blind, or is it missing? I have found the Royal Navy and loads of other air forces, but not the RAF. I have also looked for "Joker" the standard RAF call sign but it isn't there. Someone tell me that I have missed it somewhere, or how I can add it to rectify a major oversight!
  15. Oh dear, this is embarrassing. After a few weeks of using Rex Essentials+Overdrive it crashed with the message 'Failed to read from file.' In trying to get it going again I get told to, 'Select root folder for where you have FSX installed.' I don't know what they mean by root folder or where to find it. Please can anyone explain in very simple terms how to find my root folder. All assistance gratefully received.
  16. Hello Everyone, I am looking for a para motor and or para motor trike download for FSX, can anyone help please? Good Flying, Cheers, Michael.
  17. My 8800 GT is very tired and occasionally fails - black screen but FSX sound continues. The Left-Shift plus Numeric-Minus FLUSH command has no effect (maybe I've got the character string wrong?) and I have to restart the PC. Sometimes, the 8800 stays dead and I get the "beeeep-beep-beep-beep" error code on restarting the PC. So, it's time to replace the GPU, methinks... Now, the 660 GTX looks attractive. It's a 2 Gbyte card and will cost around 135 GBP, so it's affordable. Also, a few pundits reckon that as FSX is CPU bound, a more expensive GPU might not be worth it. Longer term I will be re
  18. hello I have just started using Air hauler and was wondering where is the best location in the UK too put my first base.
  19. I'm buying almost all of UK2000s airports cos I like them. So I'm flying lots of shuttles between them in the 146 and hopefully soon the 8-Q400. What I would like is a decent payware Shorts 360 which would be ideal for these er ... short hops. Does anyone know where I can get one please? There are nostalgic reasons why I want this plane if anyone is interested. After producing a conference that took place in Liverpool I invited Kate to fly up and join me there for a couple of days. The morning we were due to fly back to Heathrow she confirmed that she was pregnant with our first ch
  20. I've recently been buying add on airports, UK2000 are great IMO lots of detail and static AI planes. Aerosofts Heathrow has them but their Orly and Nice do not. I don't like using FSX default ac to populate the stands so my question is. Is there an add on that will give me realistic static AI ac? Thanks in anticipation.
  21. Can anyone recommend a good four engine prop (not turbo-prop) aircraft for FSX? I would prefer it to have been used by the RAF, and to be post world war two. J
  22. I have been reading up on various FS servers. So far I have looked at: FSD Server PHP VMS FSInn/FS Copilot ...and there is quite a lot I don't understand! FSD Server. - I understand how to set this up to get it working as a server for connection using FSInn. But where does it store data. I cant see anything in FSD to indicate what if any database it can interface with and how. Neither do the files associated with an FSD installation seem large enough to indicate that they are accumulating data. PHP VMS - I understand a fair amount about this tool, it is a MYSQL/PHP web bas
  23. Looking for someone to give me specs for 2 tower PC's. Bulding Flightdecks SKTQ. Requires 2 pcs to run the ifly737 software & SKTQ + pedestal. Flightdeck solutions suggest one tower for FSX and the other as the Client PC. What I need to know is what processors, memory card,graphics card and hard drive requirements needed to run this package above minimums. Am going to customise the build. Many thanks to anyone who can help. Al
  24. I just got done flying a 1700nm flight for my company, AirHauler recorded it and everything and then I closed the program. When I started it, it said to download a new version from JustFlight so I just did that. Now when I start AirHauler, it wants to start it in compatibility mode so I let it, my problem is that when it does that, only the default company is available, is there any way to get my company back?
  25. Any FSUIPC gurus out there ?? Need your help.... During the various resets and trying my yoke out in different ports (following the issue with the disco lights on my yoke display), I seem to have pretty much boogahhed up my FSUIPC settings. In order to test the yoke, I tried it in different USBs (major bad move) and a different PC... all to no avail, and now that everything is plugged back in where it belonged, my Saitek Cessna trim does diddly squat ! I don't have the Saitek Trim software (or any Saitek software for that matter) installed on my rig, and I was using a LUA command
