  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  5. Hi Davis,Many thanks for your prompt reply.in FS9 I mostly used 1280 x 960.Sometimes, when I wanted better performance I used 1024 x 768and when I was tired of oval gauges is switched to 1280 x 1024 (I have a TFT which supportes 1.25 ratio).Outside Of FS9 I allways used 1280 x 1024, but actually I need the new video card only for FS9.Maybe it is also of interest which AA and AF settings I preferred;AA = 4, AF = 8.BTW I had the impresseion that my card does not antialiase DXT3 textures correctly and was told that this is a general ATI problem. Does this problem still exist or was this more a driver's issue. If it is ATI card related, maybe I should better go for a Nvidia?CheersWolfgang
  6. I have to replace my old ATI Radeon 9800 pro 128MB, due to overheating.Since I will probably buy a whole new system incl. a high end video card in a few months, the replacement card I'm looking for now does not have to be a high end card it should only match the performance of my old Radeon 9800.Since they don't sell the Radeon 9800 any more where I live, I ask you what alternative AGP card, either Radeon od Nvida, which matches the performance of my old card, can you suggest?I will need the card only for FS2004, because I will only upgrade to FSX after I have bought my completely new system.BTW I will also post this in the PC/MAC hardware for simulators forum.Thanks in advance for your help!WolfgangMy rough sys specsPentium 4, 2.4 GHZ1024 MB RAMWindows XP Pro

  8. Yes, definitely! The complexer the mesh, the lower the fps.

  10. Do a search for Lonny Payne in the Avsim File library.For me the Lonny's panel is the best and most complex 752 panel for FS9. Please note that you have to download a few files (the base version and some updates). Version 1.1 alone had more than 43500 downloads.Wolfgang
  11. Hi Macs,congrats, this looks really great. Allow me a hint though. "Skew" the centre post to the right to improve the impression of sitting on the left seat.CheersWolfgang :-wave
  12. Everybody want to have the sim as ral as it gets. So why should should anyone like to have different set ups for right and left handers? There is not such a thing in real world planes, so why should it be in the sim? In most real world aircraft you use the left hand (or both hands) for the yoke or the stick and the right hand for the throttles assuming you are the PIC. If you are the F/O its the other way round. No matter if you are left or right handed.If you want different cockpit layouts for left anf right handers in aeroplanes, why not also in cars? Think about this and I guess you will realize, that this would not be good idea.Wolfgang
  13. I remember an ATC based adventure programm called ProFlight 98 and its successor ProFlight 2000. These programms used many, mayn more phrases than the current MSFS ATC does and it used literally hundreds of different accents from all over the world. Even US-accents were split into regions. e. g. South, deep South etc. And there were even more than one voice per region recorded.An this gem of a programm was created by just one person (with the help of others though who spoke the phrases). This was more than 5 years ago, when technology was not as advanced as it is today. So it seems localized ATC could be done with reasonable workload and time consumption!And BTW, what's about Radar Contact? Aren't there not also different accents modelled?Wolfgang
  14. I'm really surprised that - according to tdragger - MS thought there was no interest in localized ATC.If the FS team followed the discussions in the different FS fora closely over the past 5 years, they would have recognized, that localized ATS was definitely amongst the most wished features for MSFS since ATC was implemented the first time into MSFS (I thinnk it was in FS2002). Therefore I was pretty sure that FSX would feature this. At least different accents if not the different ATC procedures modelled worldwide.Wolfgang
