Help needed reinstalling FSX, Orbx, etc.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

It's been around 5 years since I've played FSX and I've got a new gaming rig and want to reinstall everything from scratch. The thing is I've forgotten how to install eveything, I had had loads of tweaks, etc. some of which aren't probably necessary now. I also have a bunch of Orbx scenery and airports that'll need installing too.

My PC is a 4.00Ghz i7 6700K, 16GB RAM, 500GB SSD, RTX2070 GPU, 3 x 24" monitors.

Can anyone point me to an install guide or offer any setup tips?

TIA

Daz

Go to the Orbx website and download FTX Central. That is the one-stop platform to download and install all your Orbx products.

You will need SP2 or Acceleration installed too.

When I had to do a reinstall of FSX a few years ago, the best advice I read was to avoid all tweaks apart from the highmemfix tweak.

Hi Guys  I'm going through similar issues with a new machine install.

  • Have installed FSX Gold from my DVDs and successfully activated with my keys - However when I subsequently installed the Acceleration pack I wasn't given the opportunity to insert my registration key and it gave a product activation error message which opened a page telling me to use the activation wizard to activate or use telephone activation without however giving the phone number if its still operating? After the error screen FSX opened ok but was missing the multiplayer button and i suspect now back in the demo mode?? Any idea how to activate Acceleration install??
  • I would also appreciate if someone could point me in the direction of FSX Service Pack 1 as Microsoft no longer list it for download.
  • The final issue is one of the guys replied to my initial post over on the Win10 forum suggesting I should buy the Steam Version of FSX - my concerns were that I believed the steam version had to be validated at each session on the Steam site? is this correct or is it a stand alone ? and what is the collective wisdom say about whether I should take the opportunity to install the Steam Version on a clean slate?

Any suggestions / advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers Pete
