  1. Worked ok this morning around 7am Eastern Standard time USA then shortly went out. STill can't get them now 12 pm Howard
  2. Hi I have a similar problem which affects aircraft lights as well as those on runways. In my case the black squares disappear and the correct lights are displayed after a 10-15 seconds. I'll check fx-2.bmp tonight when I go home. Thanks for your info.
  3. Hi, I had the same problem after installing Acceleration. Don't have it anymore - here's what I did.I uninstalled FSX/Acceleration then reinstalled them. Then I tried flying FSX for a while at various FPS settings until I got stutters etc. Then I started backing off on my fps setting until I found one which worked smoothly. In some minor cases I may still get some stutters and I just do the same, reduce fps setting. Important, in my case setting fps to unlimited gives the worst stutters as the computer is continually trying to hunt for the best it can do.Something else happened after I reinstalled fsx and Acceleration. I had lots of ctds and screen freezes before reinstallation. I previously had numerious addons installed (both aircraft and scenery) as I'm an addon junkie. After reinstallation, I carefully added one or two addons at a time and then flew for an hour or so to check for CTDS/freezes. If I got ctds/freezes, I uninstalled the addon I had just installed - then test flew again (hour or so). I've totally gotten rid of them by this method of reinstall an addon and then test fly. So far the main culprits for my system were certain addon aircraft and my enormous and messed up object library for Instant Scenery (IS). IS wasn't the problem, rather I guess it had something to do with the object library I had built from as many and all objects I could find. I'm guessing there must have corruption within the library. I deleted the object library i had set up and then built a new one of ONLY those objects I felt I'd really want to use. In any case I've not had any ctds/freezes since reinstalling FSX/Acceleration and my IS object library.Yes, it took a long time to do all of the above, but it's well worth it. Before doing the reinstalls, I was getting ready to say bye bye to fsx (with addons), as I was getting numerious ctds/freezes everytime I flew.Hope this helps.Good luck...
  4. Hi, I have an onboard sound card on my computer. How can I disable it so that it would not be using any system resources? I don't use sound at all due to problems I have with my ears, so I'd like to totally disable the onboard sound card. I also get screen freezing at some times.
  5. Hi Bert, I just tried the link and it works ok on my computer. What do you get when you click on the link?
  6. Hi Folks, James Udall has provided us with an amazing FSX scenery addon about Utah. It completely changes the landscape of many areas of Utah (USA) and really shows some the great graphic capability we have in FSX.I highly recommend that you try Utah Complete (Avsim Library) and run a short comparison between default FSX and then FSX with Utah Complete installed.Suggestion: First try flying from St. George, Utah using the default scenery. I personally like flying at the start of dusk during summer, but choose whatever time/season is best for you. Look at the fantastic mountain scenery as you take off and fly around the area. After takeoff and reaching some altitude, look back at the airport. Then install Utah Complete and try the same flight. Fantastic is the primary word that came to my mind when I did that. It's hard to believe that the default scenery and Utah Completes' scenery are both for the same area! I've tried some of the other areas James has mentioned in the readme - fantastic mountain scenery etc. Also, try Salt Lake City flying over the city and looking at the downtown area - wonderful.....Many thanks again James.Cheers
  7. Good question, good answer. thanks, I often wondered about that as well.
  8. Hi Bruce and Thomas,The sound card did it for me! Many thanks....I took Bruce's suggestion and tried using the default Beech's sound and it works perfectly.Thomas - my sound card is the onboard one which came which the computer, not an actual add on card.Thanks for you help folks.
  9. Thanks for the tip and prompt reply. I'll try it when I get home and report back.
  10. Hi Folks, First, many thanks to the folks at AFG for their fantastic B300 and to Thomas (Flyingscool) for his FSX mods which I
  11. Hi, You need to download this file cspfj.zip from Avsim. Works well.cheers,
  12. Many thanks Milton for your excellent work in the past. Once again many thanks for the Dash7 (fantastic to begin with) and it's new vc.cheers,
  13. Hi Bob, Instant Scenery is sold by Flight1 and it's fantastic for adding numerious objects to scenery. Well worth it. You can turn boring default scenery and airports into extremely interesting areas.have fun...
