Damian,I fly FS9.1 and FSX SP2 on my main MSFS machine. I've got ASX+XG and ASv6+GEPro and XPAX installed on the client PC. All work fine. What is the right method to upgrade to ASA?Thanks,Dirk.

Yes me too.. I use ASV6 for FS9 and ASX for FSX. Which version do I need to buy to upgrade both?...And do I really need to upgrade, is the new version significantly better and therefore will it make the FS immersion even better?cheersKeith

Hi,If you have both ASv6 and ASX on your pc then the ASX upgrade route would be the one to take. Once installed ASA will work with both versions of FS.Regards

Ok I'm downloading the full version of asa. I'm on my laptop with FS9. Will I be able to install the same license on an other computer with fsx? Thanks

Hi All,Now that ASA is released, if any user has stunning screen shot(s) they would like to share in the Gallery, please e-mail to me at jim(AT)hifisim.comPlease include the company names of the textures used, ex: X Graphics, REX, FEX.Thanks!

Interesting release and as an FS9 user I certainly appreciate the dual platform compatibility. I'm also glad to read that it will work with Ground Environment Pro. But what about ActiveSky Graphics? ActiveSky uses ground and sky textures from GE Pro, but cloud textures from ActiveSky Graphics. I have no other cloud texture program. So how will that work? I assume ASA can work with ActiveSky Graphics, but wanted to know for sure before I upgrade. :(

Hi Mike,Using ASA you will allow ASA to generate some snapshots. These snapshots will use the ASG textures.Now, if you want to use the GEP sky textures you will load a snapshot first and then GEP textures.If you want to use the ASG sky textures, you will use GEP first and then load a snapshot.It may look complex, but when you sit down and use things a few times it is as easy as generating texture sets in GEP.Thanks!

What about support for other add-ons? Add-ons such as FS Flightkeeper v3.x, Radar Contact v4.3 and TopCat v2.xTIA

Hi,Thanks for your interest!Thomas is on the Beta team so Flight Keeper 3 may need an update. I'll try to get a hold of him.Radar Contact reads the weather from FS so there should be no problems there.I have never heard of TopCat so I can't comment.Thanks!

So at the risk of sounding stupid, how do I use my REX with a pre-made flight plan loaded into ASA?

Hi,No, legit. question.Load textures from REX.Go to the ASA Graphics page.Click on Take New Snapshot icon.Enter a name.ASA will collect the necessay textures.Then ASA will ask you which category to store this snapshot under.That is it!

Thanx for the quick response Jim ...the snag with REX is that you have to have FSX loaded and in the 3d world for the REX textures to load, so it is then too late to have ASA runa pre-made flight profile, no?In other words, does not ASA have to run and have flight profile loaded before FSX is even started?Thanx!

I have a similar question... I am a AS6 and ASX customer; I am also a purist :( ...If I download the ASA upgrade for the ASX route, during install will ASA unpack the .exe and let me save it so in the future when I wipe my machine and re-load everything (which I do sometimes twice a year) I will be able to install ASA CLEANLY? Instead of having to install ASX and then do the ASA upgrade install again?...Does that make sense? :( Thanks!Robert

Hi Robert, you will need ASX installed to run this upgrade again, since the eligibility check is done on install. It's the same as say an MS OFFICE upgrade which requires a previos OFFICE version installed. For archival just keep an ASX install file and your ASA upgrade handy. Hopefully won't be too painful should you need a reinstall.Best,

Hi All,We do appreciate all the interest and questions, but it is becoming too hard for me to keep track of everything in one thread. I don't know who I've responded to and who I still need to answer. I am going to close this thread for this reason only. If you posted and we did not answer or if you have other questions, please start a new thread below. We'll be around all day to answer everyone!!Thanks All.
