Removing all messages in FS2004 can be accomplished easily by editting the fs9.cfg (in C:Documents and SettingsYOUR NAMEApplication DataMicrosoftFS9) by adding to the [MAIN] (between square brackets) section the sentence: HideInfoText=1 This has the disadvantage that all the screen messages are suppressed. Of course other edits (e.g. removing SLEW, PARKING BRAKES, or leaving only 1 letter of a word etc.) can be easily done, if needed, see below. Download the freeware Hex-Editor :frhed. Homepage: http://www.kibria.de/frhed.html Than the beta (no problem with this beta ! ) version: http://www.rs.e-technik.tu-darmstadt.de/ap.../frhed-v1.1.zip and install. Place the language.dll from your Fs2004 in the frhed directory. You did make a reserve copy already .... Start frhed Choose: File open and than linguage.dll Search (press the "telescope/spy-glass") and search for the sentence you want to remove e.g. SOUND OFF (or what it is, in your language). Important (!!) : In the search window tick UNICODE otherwide you won'nt find the word you searched for. Than OK to search. Now you have found your beloved word. The screen has a left and right part. In the right part is the word you searched for. If you press the letters with the mouse you can see in the left screen, the digits belonging to it. Press now in the left screen on the digits belonging to the first leeter of the word which you are edditing. Replace all the letters you want to remove by 00 ( two zero's per letter) till you reach the end of the word. Save AS (!) and you are all set. If you like it you can also leave the first letter un-eddited to have one (1) reference letter in your screen. Do what you like. Replace the original linguage.dll with this eddited file. Another way to remove the OVERSPEED message: Go to FS2004 aircraft directory and open the blabla aircraft map. Open the aircraft.cfg file and search for the section: [Reference Speeds] There replace: max_indicated_speed = 365.0 //Red line (KIAS) by max_indicated_speed = 900.0 //Red line (KIAS) WAS 365.0, so make it unrealistic high, nonsense This trick does not work for SOUNDOFF, SLEW, PARKING BRAKES etc. Therefore you need hex-edditing or hideinfotext (see before). So, now back to flying, with a cosmetically "clean screen" .... Hessel

Is there an easy way to eliminate JUST the blinking word "SLEW" from the lower right hand corner of the screen on my client(s) computers while running WideView 2004, or while in Slew mode? The method posted above doesn't seem to work, and I posted this over at the WideView support forum last night, but no one has yet to answer.I've already checked "Remove SLEW display coordinates from the currently active STARTUP FLIGHT" in WideView Control Panel which eliminates the Slew Coordinates, but I want to keep displaying Status info like SIMULATION PAUSED because I've found lately that I have accidentally saved some flights on the client with "Pause" On and other bad settings, but don't know which flights. Also sometimes I accidentally hit the wrong key on the client keyboard, so I just want to eliminate the word SLEW from appearing all the time while flying.Thank you.Chuck B.
