    FTX Forum problem

    Hi Ra Hi Rafael, there is a whole topic over there in the FTX forums about your "likes". 41 replies, 1061 views so far, rated "Hot". :smile: http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/79725-im-being-liked-and-liked-and-liked/ Cheers, Wolfgang Edit: Oops, sorry! Since you can't enter the forums, above link is useless.
  2. For me the A2A Cub with Accusim works perfectly in p3DV2.1. I did not install it via the exe-file but did a simple copy/paste of all the A2A Piper folders from the FSX-Airplanes folder into the P3D2.1-Airplanes folder and a copy/paste of the A2A folder (= Accusim) from the main FSX folder to the main P3D2.1 folder. As said, this works like a treat in my installation of P3D2.1 Cheers, Wolfgang
  3. My reply is a bit late so maybe you have solved the issue in the meantime. I stumbled across this thread, when I was looking for a solution of an issue, which I'm pretty sure is the my very same as yours. At least I found out that the issue is related to the visibility setting. Set the visibility in the weather dialogue to unlimited and and the issue will be gone. The lower the visibility setting is, the closer the border of the 2 different shades of grey will be to you. I'm having this issue with some Orbx airports and I'm currently waiting if the devs there will find a solution. Cheers, Wolfgang

    Orbx RV-4 is out

    With Supersampling AA you won't get any shimmering with the Orbx Lancair. When the plane came out many graphic cards were not capable of SSAA without a huge performance hit and stuttering. But today the state of the art video cards can handle this like a charm. The Lancair is a very enjoyable plane to fly and I hope the RV-4 will be the same. Wolfgang

    Bojote's Shader 3.0 mod for FSX

    Paul, I'm running FSX under XP Pro 32. And the Shader folder is definitely underC:\Programme files\Microssoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\ShadersHLSLOr to be more exactly since I have the German language XPC:\Programme\Microssoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\ShadersHLSLAnd that's the default path. I have installed FSX 6 months ago and have not changed anything, but have applied *******' shader tweak a few days ago.Wolfgang

    Bojote's Shader 3.0 mod for FSX

    Are you sure? Is the path leading to the ShadersHLSL folder in Win7 really completely diffeerent from the path in Win XP?In Win XP you'll find the shaders folder by default under uner C:\Programme files\Microssoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\ShadersHLSLFollowing the path you mentioned in Win XP will lead you the FSX.cfg and some other FSX related files/folders but not to the Shaders folder.Wolfgang
  8. Go to LOWI (Innsbruck) and I guarantee you'll see them crashing into the surrounding mountains on departure.It's quite easy to see the departure crashes. You only have to follow the departing plane in slew mode or even only zooming them in VC mode. They will also crash into the mountains on arrival, but it's off course a bit harder to spot. This is valid for FS9 and FSX assuming you haven't installed the great "Approaching Innsbruck" by Aerossoft, which solves this problem.Wolfgang
  9. Tolip2 and Bjorn, many thanks for your replies and explanations! I think I'll buy FSUIPC. I have it installed for FS9 and its a fantastic utility.Alex, I did some flying yesterday with the Saitek devices set to Mode 2 and did not experience any view changeCheers, Wolfgang
  10. Hi Alex,Many thanks for your quick reply! I'll give it a try and set the Saitek yoke to mode 2. I'll let you know if this fexed the problem!Wolfgang
  11. Since I'm fairly new to FSX (got it approx a month ago), I'm not sure if this is a known issue. I have searched the forums though and haven't found any related post.From time to time my view suddenly changes from VC to spot view without. This happens randomly but I have the subjective impression that sometimes it happens simultaneously with an input into TrckIr input (moving my head) or when pressing a button on my Saitek yoke or stepping on my Saitek rudder pedals. Also I have the feeling it happens more often, when the system has more workload to do.It can be very annoying when on short final I suddenly find myself outside the plane. It's no problem to change the view back to VC, but still... Thanks in advance for your ideas, WolfgangMy specs:OS: XP32 ProS-775 ASUS P5Q, ATX 1, 1 x PCI-E x16, 2x PCI-E x1, 3x PCI, Intel P45/ICH10R, 4x DDR2 667/800/1066/1200Mhz, CPU FSB 800/1066/1333/1600MHz, Core 2 Duo E8400, 2 x 3.00GHz, DDR2-RAM 3 GB PC2-800 MHz, NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT, 512 MB GDDR3.

    Test Poll

    Amusing that people are voting for "I don't care, 'cause I don't "DO" polls!" within a poll??!! :( Wolfgang
  13. Sorry, I can't help you with this one. I just wanted to apologize for some of the "old boys" here in the forum, being cynical.Guys, he is a newbie, so perhaps totally inexperienced in FS. He won't be even able to do the lessons, because they are off course all in German. All the menus are in German. So if you have no English copy to compare, you will have absolutely no clue to understand the menus, have no possibility to change settings etc.Further I have to add, that I myself never would buy a German copy of FS, although my native tongue is German (I'm from Austria). I used to buy German copies, I think up to FS2000, but the translations from English were really crab. Somebody with absolutely no idea of aviation must have done the translation, some phrases did not make any sense in German.I remember that they e. g. always used the German Word "Ruder" for the English "aileron" and for the English "rudder". That's because in German you have got "Querruder" (aileron) and "Seitenruder" (rudder) so thy just shortened both to "Ruder", which was sometimes really confusing. I have no idea if this has improved for FS9, but I highly doubt it, when looking on MS's German speaking ads for FS.CheersWolfgang
