How do I?

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!A couple of questions for the avsim goup. I've been watching the posts here and have been looking for how to move the add on scenery files to a diffrent hard drive. Also settings within the fs9.cfg that people are using in conjunction with Megascenery and megacity. I'm trying to establish a reference point for my system and because of all the add ons i'm now finding, (guy's i have been a flight sim fan since fs98 In my ignorance of the web (i was a ludite and yes, Ted Kazinski was at one time a hero) i didn't know about sim mods or besides the addons at comp usa i didn't know that FS had so much to offer. For us older ex-pilots that can not qualify because of eyesite or whatever, the FS sims are really an enjoyable second best! Anyhoo, i'm open to all suggestions and ideas. Let me know!By the way, i'm running:Intel p4 3.0Intel MOBO 8352 gigs of 533 ddr with dual channel4 HD Western digitals 7200 80/160/240/300gigsNvidia(don't remeber Mod num.) Agp with 256 megs of ram onboardTurtle Beach Catalina sound cd.XP Pro Service pk 1The system is not the problem, the operator is!

Be aware that we havea specific hardware forum where such questions shold be directed. If you search on my name you will find several discussions and posts on the `art` of moving scenery (and other files) to different hard drives, and the likely benefits. With scenery it's actually very easy to do, and can be done in such a way as NOT to disturb the files already in pace within the sim, so you can copy the scenery files, copy and amend the scenery.cfg and almost make a direct comparison to see whether things improve on your rig. If you like what you see, keep it, and if you don't you can get back to original settings in seconds.Allcott

You can't be serious. Why would anyone use the hardware forum to post something about moving scenery files? IMNSHO, this is carrying the whole hardware forum thing just a bit too far. (BTW, are you a moderator?)Doug

Hi Guys,For responses, i obviously picked the right group to join! (i'm very leery of joining anything nowadays, older age makes you either cautious or foolish and the same can be said about youth eh?) but back to the gangway. Tom, , ,Yes i would be and truth be known, a Master Chief with 2 years as such and another ten as Chief Boatswain. Thank you for the links! Like the first post states, i've been doing this for years, but i never knew about this online community. This is an absolutely incredible opportunity for people like myself. Other than compusa i never knew of the vast resources that so many simmers and stick jerkers have produced and it's really incredible the dedication these people bring to the table.Mr. Allcot, I didn't know that a add on "scenery file" was considered hardware. Maybe YOU should start a new string for us new simmers that explains proper etiquette, after all this site may be hosted by another, but as a literate AMERICAN that can read, the tips and tech section of these forums clearly states: Subject: "Tips and Tricks Forum Rules" This topic is locked.Previous topic | Next topic ba747heavy Wed Jun-02-04 02:30 AM Member since Jun 10th 2002 6241 posts #443, "Tips and Tricks Forum Rules" I am going to put the rules into one post, to make it easier to follow. 1) Do not ask questions in this forum. Use the MSFS General Forum instead.2) If you are posting a tip or trick, use the following message format: (thanks to Elrond for this)You post a message with a concise but informative subject such as: "Enabling the autothrottle for new aircraft". That's the subject line in the post. But then, the first line of text in the message should read something like this:KEYWORDS: throttle | auto | autothrottle | autopilot | control | 2002 (or CoF, FS9, 2004, etc)And then the meat of the message body follows. That way, when a user searches on any of those key words or for specific Flight Sim versions, they would automatically be picked up in the search.If your tip is specifically related to one version of Flight Sim, please add the FS version to your KEYWORDS line (eg: "2002"). Some tips will be general enough to cover any version of FS (such as a hardware tip, etc), so feel free to omit the version from your KEYWORDS if your tip fits that category.Please post your KEYWORDS as the first line in your message body, not as your subject line. Your subject should be concise but descriptive enough to allow people to visually browse the tips and tricks forum and understand what each post is about.-FFred Clausen KALMAVSIM Forum Moderator

Good day Tom,Wuf, Double Duty eh? I had thought of that myself just to try something diffrent, but ended up getting involved with different facets of the Navy and decided i must have had a masochistic streek in me or something. So i stuck it out and stayed. Thank you for the greetings and glad to see that you made it too.Bert

Hi Joe,Thanks for the greetings and if you have the time, a quick question.(because of the links you kindly provided) I have noticed within these diffrent threads that it seems like quite a few people do use the voice rec software. Does it really work? I've tried the ibm speak and spell program for text and with me it just didn't work. Pros? Cons? Let me know,Thanks!!Bert

Hi Bert,I have a 1.2ghz Athlon with 512mb ram, and a GeForce FX5600.Some people have problems with VR, and it really depends. I don't run a lot of background stuff on my meager machine, so my performance of VR meets my expectations.You would need to ascertain on your machine whether it works well for you.It also depends on what you plan to use it for. I use it for forums, I use it in my OpenOffice.org office suite. I use it in FS9 with Flight Assistant as I list above.You need to download the core speech engine, and you must do the training, as it is inherent to make it function. the good news is it is 100% FREE for you to figure out if this is for you or not.Follow the Flight Assistant Link here:http://www.linder-network.de/thelindercomp...tassistant.htmlOn that page it will list the core programs that you need from Microsoft to get started. This is the same Free stuff the payware folks use in their programs. Even the training is the same stuff. of course, they package the payware stuff as if it is unique, but that is another discussion.Regards,Joe ****************Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]

I'll be happy to help you out with any questions you may have as well.Once you do the training, try out Flight Assistant. I also have some tips included within my releases.If you grab the 172 Profile, I use it with the Real Air Simulations FREEWARE Cessna 172.Also, I have developed a better PDF sheet for use with my 172 Profile.You can get that here:http://www.aboutpolitics.net/fa/fa172column.pdfVery Important. if you have a headset, or even if you do not, enable a Push To Talk Button, and don't use voice Activation, as the feedback will most likely cause other commands to activate.Also, If you don't have a headset, Wal-mart sells noise-cancelling headsets for about $15.00, sometimes less, and they work just fine.Regards,Joe****************Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]
