FS9 solutions / issues.

Hi, What`s is your video card ?About the menu and flickering stuff, it's related to the AA and anisotropy or ATI card drivers"4-Sun Glare will, temporarily and completely mask the cockpit instrumentation view."When ? and how? Sun Glare is only from external view not visible inside.4-Lens flare overdone, looks like a tunnel / cylinder."This is not a problems, because it is fully customizible"4-Clouds have a dark Halo / frame around them.7-Certain distance settings will help mask / make these go into background?. See Chris Willis posts he has a way around"It's only because their clouds draw distant and clouds percentage are very low, set these higher and there is no more problem at all.-Night lighting and streets, full customizible varie on user preference.""4-In Menu> Help, when scrolling the text, it becomes scrambled/ unreadable6,7. No solution and or Work around. Must be fixed by manuf.4-When the Menu etc. is accessed the screen blinks 3-4 times before stable.6,7. Can be ignored . Maybe a Video driver issue? No solution and or Work around. Must be fixed by manuf.""I don't have this problems, see AA and anasotropy or your drivers.

Hi, It was the same in fs2002, it is the sun glare, when your eyes is on front the sun, this is simulating the light on your eyes effect, if you don't like it, you can disabled.-The Lens flares is another things, these are the circle/octogonal from external view only.Display setting:Sun Glare: on/offLens flare: on/off ThanksChris Willis[link:fsw.simflight.com/FSWMenuFsSim.html]Clouds And Addons For MsFs

Hi, Chris.I only fly in cockpit mode. Here is the scenario.Stratus, 1800-8000, 2/8. Aircraft at 1400, to my left 45, is Catalina at 1600. I should see the aiport and most of the island, but you only see the lower part. This is not a big issue, I am not much on clouds but needs to be pointed out. I fly IMC or some High cirrus. TV

Hi, Geof.This thread is getting sidetracked. It's obvious that you have no clouds to very few, try Overcast and or what I Had above. Set your zoom to .65. What you have and what I posted are entirely different situations.If you are happy with it then fine, let others evaluate and maybe benefit from this information. I

I set my clouds exactly to what your post said:Stratus, 1800-8000, 2/8I also took the coordinates of your screen shot and altitude.Zoom was around 65-I don't remember exactly-if you look at the cockpit and boat in the water-very similar to your shot which is what I tried for.About the only thing different would be time of day-which I suppose could change it.If you would like something else I would be glad to comply.I did that flight 6 months ago so I am also familiar :-)

I noticed Antialiasing is not working on my ATI Radeon 9800 pro using any Cataylst drivers including the latest Cat 3.6. When you check the box in the display setup it does put a check there but it does not work in the game. If I edit the display.cfg manualy and change the following AA is working fine. They really should have caught this one.;----------------------------------------------------------------------; ATI Radeon Win2k/XP;----------------------------------------------------------------------[ati2dvag.dll]Disable=1PanelAsTexture=0AntiAlias=0 <---Change to 1[ati2dvag.dll.1]MinDriverRev=5.13.01.3102Disable=2[ati2dvag.dll.2]MinDriverRev=6.14.0001.6307PanelAsTexture=2

Hi Loren,I also have an ATI 9800 Pro (128). You mention AA not working- are you turning it on in the ATI control panel? Bruce.

Here are couple more.4-On initial flight the Yoke defaults to 90 degrees bank position and if you continue the roll to liftoff you could crash.5-Just start a flight you created, in VC mode and observe the yoke.7-Make sure you move the yoke and rudder controls, before you roll out. I guess this should be part of your preflight checklist, use it.4-Airspeed indicator behaves erratically when entering / exiting a layer of wind.5-Set a wind layer 1400 to 4000 and take off from sea level, observe the Airspeed indicator as you approach the boundaries.6, 7-None, unless you want no wind and or a single Surface wind to 100,000 Ft.I will get some more as soon as I can duplicate and verify them. The roads around Big Bear appear to be wrong. TV

No bruce. I have the ATI 9800 control panel set to application prefference and turning AA on in the game but it does not work. When you check AA in the game it does not set AA flag for radeon cars to enable in the display.cfg. Only if manualy set AA from 0 to 1 in the sectioh I posted above. Loren :)

Hi Loren,I have AA set to 4* in the control panel for all games (not application preference), and AF set to 8*, and am getting some great pics- both in FS2002 and FS9. Thanks for the info on the display.cfg entry. BTW, some good info on FS9 (includes some info on the [TERRAIN] field in FS9.cfg):http://forums.simflight.com/viewtopic.php?t=9236Bruce.

I use a second analog joystick to run my rudder pedals through. If MSFS is newly installed, both my USB joystick & analog joystick will end up with assigned controls. Then........... the yoke will roll 90 degrees. Or..... you could have had a startup situation where it's 90 degrees & the sim is still loading from that.------ It's NOT NORMAL -------- don't assume it is...L.Adamson

Hi, a couple of more.4-Problem. System lockup. 5-Path. Going to Menu, (Alt) multiple times. I got one solid lock, I had press Reset on my system, Ctrl Alt Del would work, and I got a White blank screen, that responded to a Mouse click where the Menu bar would normally be.6,7-Fix, Workaround. None.4-Low level Clouds( 3-4 small Cumulus), 3000 Ft. or less, appear when the 9000-15000 Cirrus layer only, Clouds selected.5-Just set a layer of high clouds, Cirrus in my case, and fly around looking at some of the surrounding mountain peeks. After a while these low clouds pop up, below 3000 ft. Did the ILS (110.30) into KLGB, from KSNA, with the missed, turned back to Becca (233.0), and the low clouds appeared over the Saddleback mountains, aprox. 080 heading and about 3000 ft.Verified settings and remained unchanged. Restarted the Situation and everything cleared up. For Chris, this may explain why the Catalina view, that I posted, is obstructed.6,7-None.4-Yoke, stick / Ailerons get set to 90 degree bank position ( a more detailed continuation of previously mentioned topic). 5-During, initial Rollout with rudder input, during Pause, exiting from Slew and or Menu.7-Make sure you exercise the Aileron input before Lift off, When exiting from Slew enter Pause first, exercise the Aileron input then exit Pause.

For Ladamson.I am well aware of the adjustment you mentioned. That is not a useful setting, unless you just want to scenery view.The studies show that in order for a Scan to be maintained and useful, between the Simulator, and real flying, the Configuration, Size and Spacing of the Instrument cluster has to be maintained. The way I set it up for the students, and myself, depends on the size of the monitor, and the Instruments used. I use mostly, the 182, Mooney, 172 and a 182RG that I put together. The last I may not need now, still evaluating, because you can view the Trim and other Controls positions in this new version, that were not working before.As far as the >conflict in your control surface assignments.< I verified that they are not Cross and or multi applied, but it may have something to do with the Analog to USB Adapter, I will look into it. The fact is that the same exact configuration works in every other sim and the 2002 version.>It's NOT NORMAL -------- don't assume it is...>I most definitely DON

You will have not realistic result because you are inserting clouds that's should not never be inserted on some situation.The weather system works with the actual real cloud implementation with each altitude and the clouds type are differents from each altitude and condition/temps.
