  1. Thanks, but looks like add/remove doesn't identify point releases.
  2. What 's the best way for me to tell whether I am running v5 or v5.1. I thought I installed v5.1 but don't see any difference. Thanks
  3. Checked AMZN 8/27. Only ones listed are from 3d party sellers at 2X or more list price.
  4. Is there a list of the flight controllers that MFS supports out of the box? I have a Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2, without force feedback. It is recognized but I have to figure out how to set it up on my own. I've about given up on that and am considering purchasing a new controller (if I can find one) but only if it is supported out of the box. Is there any indication that MS will increase the number of supported controllers in the next update? Hard to believe they don't support their own hardware. It's old, but there are a lot of them still in use. Thanks
  5. Is there any advantage to purchasing MFS through Steam rather than the Microsoft Store?
  6. The C152 is fine, but it couldn't have much less performance and still be an airplane.
  7. I enrolled in Game Pass to get a quick, inexpensive ($1) look at how my rig would handle Flight Sim. I was never able to figure out how to download the sim. Help was no help. Finally gave up and uninstalled Game Pass. Anyone have better luck?
  8. I eliminated my carbon footprint when I stopped wearing carbon shoes.
  9. Thanks kids... Tried all the suggestions and am still in the same place. All the Orbx scenery is greyed out in the library. Default scenery is normal. Sim displays the default scenery only.
  10. Thanks foe your fast reply. Ran sync option, reports OK. Unable to change insertion points of Orbx scenery. Orbx entries are greyed out and move up/move down keys frozen.
  11. I installed HF2 by deleting P3D and then installing the full P3D package. Sim works fine. Somewhere along the line I messed up the scenery library, probably when I uninstalled P3D scenery. Now all my Orbx scenery is greyed out and I only see default scenery in the sim. The Orbx files are all in my Orbx library, outside the sim. Should I delete all Orbx scenery and reinstall? Any suggestions? Thanks.
  12. P3D4 had a nice selection of general aviation aircraft. Where did they go? Did some developers ask too much in licensing fees?
  13. I'm using P3Dv4.4 with several Orbx products, including multiple regions, Global base and vector. Do they include a terrain mesh component? If not, would the old FS Genesis products be compatible with Orbx? Thanks ...I tried to get this on the orbx forum but a very cumbersome process for setting up an account got the best of me
  14. Use FlightAware and work around the settings until you find the page that allow you to select aircraft by type. That will bring up a screen with C172s currently flying. Check their individual flight plans. That will give you realistic routes bring flown by that aircraft. Load a few up in P3D and see what you get. Cheers!
