I suggest you check your graphics card, it looks to me like the programme has not detected your card? Check in your fs9.cfg file for your make of card, that will tell you if thats the case.Go to ....Documents and settings\Application Data\FS9DISPLAY.Devices.(what ever your cards make is) If its there then thats not your problem. Hope that helps you out. just my two cents.

Hi There, Merry Christmas!This is only a guess but I thought I'd at least try to offer some help;-)You say you re-installed FS9...... was it a completely clean re-install? I understand that one needs to be careful not to leave "bits" of a previous install on the computer. This is particularly true for "Drivers" if you re-loaded those also!! Also did you also install the FS9 update at the same time? I'm not sure if it's the same as FSX but with that, one needs to be careful exactly how it is re-installed. Something about running it once before putting the updates on.Without more information as said this is all only an educated guess however, it looks to me as though something is actually missing from the install. Did the install go as expected whilst loading the program from the Discs?Have you tried the "Defaults" setting etc?Regards Blue

Merry Christmas!Install went fine. Got rid of everything on first uninstall, didnt delete stuff from the registry though but I doubt there was anything there anyway even thought it might be worth a try! Default settings dont work very well. My buddy has another set of discs so I'm going to try that in 2 days! I'll just enjoy christmas and worry about it later!Thanks for the help, and any more replies will be greatfully accepted :(
