  1. That's what I get for responding to a post I found with Google without looking at the original posting date. My apologies for replying to an old topic. Mike
  2. This appears to be an issue if you are on the Windows Insider Fast Ring and getting the new Redstone 3 builds which as of right now is Build 16188. From what I have been able to determine, the problem looks like it is caused by Microsoft's introduction of the new OneCore architecture. I will admit that most of this is conjecture based on the research I have done to try to resolve the issue. What is frustrating is that every once in a while P3D runs normally. But, more often than not, it doesn't. I have tried disabling all addons and then enabling them one at a time but the results of those tests were inconsistent. I wish I could find out what child window was trying to be opened but, so far, no luck. For what it's worth, I don't run with a lot of addons.

    Saitek W10 Beta Drivers

    I have been running the X55 drivers since they came out in September. They seem to work well. I haven't had any issues. I can't speak to the drivers for the other products. Mike
  4. Service 3 is still at 1.9. For my area at least, Southern New Hampshire, USA, Service 3 still has a more up to date image. Your mileage may vary.

  6. In the Display section of your fsx.cfg file there is an entry called WideViewAspect. Try setting it to True and see if that makes a difference.Mike

    TileProxy Tiles

    They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I started with GE and liked what I saw. I deleted the cache, ran the cleanup.bat file and then reconfigured for VE. For what it's worth, I liked GE better and switched back. It wasn't that VE was bad, it was that GE just seemed sharper. I suppose a lot of it has to do with where you fly. I did my comparison in southern New Hampshire.Mike

    Tile Proxy thread #2?

    Christian, you're a genious! This is what VFR flying is all about.One question for the group. I am using GE (tried VE but the textures didn't seem to look as good). After the URLs are retrieved I get the following in my ProxyUser console numerous times:tileproxy.sys: FileAllInformation?tileproxy.sys: PostQueryInformation() was unsuccessful asking for:tileproxy.sys: FileAllInformationThe textures appear to be loaded normally so I'm not sure if the above is good, bad, or just normal processing.Thanks again. This is the best addon for FS I have ever seen and I've flown every version since the SubLogic days.Mike

    push or pull

The throttle arrangement in every aircraft I can think of is the same. If you want to go forward, you push the throttle forward. Now that I think of it, it's the same with my truck! :)Mike BromleyPP SEL

    Removing the RED messages?

    Look in the Display section of your fsx.cfg. You will see the following entries:InfoBrakesEnable=FalseInfoParkingBrakesEnable=TrueInfoPauseEnable=TrueInfoSlewEnable=TrueInfoStallEnable=FalseInfoOverspeedEnable=FalseSet them to True or False to set your tastes.Mike

    ATC and IFR Flight Plan

    Bill,Once you get within about 60-70 miles of your destination ATC will start issuing vectors to the runway. In effect, they are overriding your flight plan. It happens in the real world too. Usually not so far out.Mike
  13. If I'm not mistaken, The Special Effects Detail slider needs to be set to High. Mike
  14. The file name is NOT case sensitive. The two lines need to be added to the TERRAIN section of your fsx.cfg file. They are not in the original file. The 4500 and 3000 values are what FSX uses by default. If you want to gain any benefit from this tweak you need to lower the numbers.Mike
