  1. Hi Steve, I had the same issue as ualani and build 1.12.2 cleared it up for me. Thanks!

    Tremendous new work at MAIW

    Thanks for the heads-up, kiwiflyer45!
  3. I have installed the DX-10 Fixer and flew a night flight and noticed that the skies were empty of AI aircraft, or at least I thought so. I then noticed that the aircraft were there but had no functioning strobe lights. Once they got within 10 miles, I would see their flight info header in the sky (flight destinations, altitude, speed, etc...) Is this a known problem? If so, could someone please share the fix? Outside of this, the DX-10 Fixer appears to be working perfectly so far. Thanks!
  4. Please disregard. You had already sent them to me! Thanks!
  5. Hi Steve, This may already have been discussed previously but I couldn't find a thread on it. I've noticed that the landing lights on my AI aircraft are not aligned correctly with the aircraft. I'm using WOAI mostly but have also noticed it with ORBX AI aircraft as well. They appear above the aircraft. This is not a new, as I've had this issue for some time. I just figured that possibly there is a correction or setting fix out there and I've just not picked up on it yet. Thanks again for this amazing tool, Steve. I wouldn't fly FSX without it. Alex

    locating the aiming point during landing

    Hi eelb, Aside from the HDMI cable and the comparable video card, that's it.

    FSX on 4k TV

    Using a 4K TV and its made a HUGE difference in my simming experience.

    locating the aiming point during landing

    Excellent post, Chock.

    locating the aiming point during landing

    I believe the unfortunate limitations found in current computer simulations of flight are the factor that we are dealing with. Higher resolutions will probably help in locating that point where detail remains stationary enough to help with assisting with the glide path. I'm currently utilizing a 50" 4K television as my monitor and it definitely has helped, overall.
  10. Sorry for the delay, but Steve was absolutely correct. After installing Mike Swannicks' "Halo.bmp", all was good again. Thanks, Steve.

    Crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a Cessna

    I actually saw this video on YouTube just a few days ago.
  12. Thank you, Steve. Will try it out and get back to you here.
  13. I picked up LOWI, KSAN and Landclass for EU. LOWI and KSAN are beautiful and FPS was great on my system. KSAN in particular was impressive FPS-wise, as I also have Orbx Southern California loaded, which can be rough on FPS in certain areas, particularly LA. But KSAN ran smoothly, even with so much autogen in the scenery. Highly recommended. I'll have to take a quick flight to see if it has people flow and will report back. Edit: I did a quick helo flight over the airport and not a soul was spotted (people flow). I may have missed it, though, but didn't spot any.

    Orbx 48% off most items

    Flew Innsbruck last night and found the detailing amazing and frame-rate unaffected. Highly recommended.

    Orbx 48% off most items

    I've got two DVD packages that I'll need added to my FTX Central account. I was able to manually update one of them (Northern Rockies) but Anacortes is still showing as "update available" but obviously won't let me update. I did take advantage of the sale and picked up Innsbruck, San Diego and Europe LC. Have only had a chance to check out San Diego and it is very nicely detailed and good on frame rates.

    FSX SE: Sounds playing causes brief lag

    I haven't made a flight in a while. Will try it again to see if still an issue. I'm not sure what VLC player is, though.
  17. Wow. What a coincidence. I too was trying to have FSX create a new CFG file this weekend and kept getting the same results. Thanks for posting this thread (and the subsequent posters with your helpful posts!)

    FSX SE: Sounds playing causes brief lag

    I've noticed the same thing on my system. From time to time, on an initial flight, when ATC initially plays, I've gotten micro-stutters as well. It eventually goes away, as the flight progresses. I also am using an on-board Realtek HD Audio driver and it also shows as being up to date. I did notice that "Nvidia HD Audio" also appears under the Sounds tab in the Device Manager. Could there possibly be some type of conflict? Also, perhaps it has nothing to do with the sound, but I've noticed micro-stutters when taking off and landing, when the aircraft is roughly around 200 Feet or lower in altitude. It's like the flightsim has to load something quickly, so freezes for a split-second, then continues normally.

    New release from EZDOC!

    This will be a day-1 purchase. The new effects are impressive and that new interface appears to be exactly what was needed.

    Nice TBM750 videos and some info.

    I've been following Steveo for some time. He's based down here in South Florida and I have recreated a few of his real world flights in FSX, especially into the Bahamas. Truth be told, he's the reason I decided to try out Carenado's TBM, since he flies one as well.

    DX10 fixer cloud shadow addon

    I'll definitely be picking this up once it's back on sale. (Steve pulled it while he tweaks some installation issues.)

    Ezdok - Terrible view system

    Thanks for your quick reply! I should have mentioned that I did double-check the FSX control settings to make sure that there were no conflicts. I do have the full FSUIPC and will double-check that as well, but I haven't touched it since it was installed and set up initially. I definitely have checked Google but could not find a similar issue. Also checked the EZDOK support link (I believe it is in but no luck there, either. I think what messed things up was that I tried to install the "free" Windows 10 upgrade (currently running Win7) and it could not install and reverted back to Win7 but appears to have messed things up for EZDOK. It's the only change that I have attempted fairly recently. Thanks again!

    Ezdok - Terrible view system

    A quick question for you EZDOK experts. I somehow have lost the view switching capability via the joystick #2 button. It used to work fine but now it does nothing. When it worked, each press of the button would change from the VC view to an outside view of the aircraft, then a tower view and finally back to VC view. I tried uninstalling EZDOK/EZCA and reinstalling the latest version but no luck getting that function back. Also tried adding the button in the EZDOK interface but no cigar. I'm hoping there's a simple solution. Thanks!

    Throttle Quadrant for Q400

    Excellent looking gear but the price is surely prohibitive to 99.99% of flight simmers.
