  1. I fixed this issue with nVidia Inspector not forcing anti-aliasing in FSX after a few weeks of off-and-on messing with it. Know all I had to do?Disable DX10 preview in FSX. That's it. I never thought to mess with that setting, until I had to disable it to get texturing to show up on the PIC 737 I'd just reinstalled. When I disabled DX10 preview, voila, instant anti-aliasing. Go figure, huh? I guess I missed that somewhere along the line.
  2. BTW, Ryan, I've tried through nVidia Control Panel with the 266.xx drivers as well; there is an "Override" setting in there, and while they don't list 8xS or 8xSQ as an option, they did list 8xQ. So I tried going through that, and it still didn't make any difference. Jaggies everywhere. I can't really tell if the 16x AF setting is doing anything or not.What's really weird? FS2004 works perfectly. I've got it going with 8xSQ through Inspector and it's doing great, and have also tried 16xS. If I try either one through Inspector with FSX, it doesn't work. It's like it can't "see" that fsx.exe is running or something. Weird.
  3. Well, I tried cleaning out the drivers and upgrading to the latest 266.whatever from last week. I tried a couple different AA settings in Inspector (8xS, 8xSQ, 16xS). I rebooted. Nothing has worked. I duplicated the settings from this thread and when I run FSX, I get no AA. If I turn AA on inside FS, it looks great. If I turn it off inside FS, the drivers don't seem to be overriding FS's selection of "no AA thanks." Don't know if it's a Windows 7 thing (I just installed it so I'm still learning how it's different from Vista) or a permissions thing or what it is. But it's very odd, since Inspector is so simple to use, that I can't get it to work. I'll keep hammering away at it.
  4. I'll give that a shot then, thanks. It's a two-week-old completely clean install of Windows 7 x64 so I haven't had any previous driver versions on it except for whatever W7 installed by default, but who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of registries.
  5. Hi, a question on this...I've got the latest nVidia Inspector, using these settings, and the 260.99 drivers with a GTS 450 1GB, running with FSX w/Acceleration, and I'm not seeing any AA or AF at all when I run (in windowed mode 1680x1050). I have the internal FSX AA turned off and filtering set to Trilinear. Does nVidia Inspector have to keep running in the background while FSX is active, like nHancer did, or are the profile changes permanent and "sticky" so they only have to be made once?

    Project Tupolev Tu-154M released!!!!

    I've been playing with this beast for a couple of hours now, and I'm just...speechless. I've mastered every piece of complex payware I've ever tried in virtually no time, and this thing is more challenging than ANY of them. Wow. I did finally get it into the air after working through the excellent step-by-step tutorial, and it flies wonderfully! It's a keeper. How is this possibly free?Those Russian designers sure do love lots of switches, though...Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
  7. Thanks Dave! Very interesting stuff.I did figure out my problem...first, I was attempting to use the prop pitch keys to adjust the prop RPM rather than just using the clickspots on the throttle. Then when I did start to use the clickspots, I pushed the levers all the way forward to the "AIR START" position, rather than to the "RUN" position. I did a flight with them in the "RUN" position and everything looked fine, good prop animation, and takeoff power seemed just great. So now I know, just set it and forget it!I just wish they'd put the ground idle speed controls on a popup window, and not exclusively in the VC (same with the interior light controls)--or are they, and I just missed it?Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
  8. Hey all...I've been messing around with my Captain Sim C-130, and have a question about the condition levers. If I click the condition levers forward to "run" as the manual (and tutorials I've found) state, the prop RPM just goes to 100% once I put any throttle on it, and stays there, so there's no rotating prop animation. Is this the normal setting for the C-130, just to leave the prop RPM at 100% through all parts of a flight?Also, does anyone have any ideas about typical power settings (ITT, fuel flow, etc.) for climb and cruise? Thanks.Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
  9. >Hi,>>See if your Internet Explorer is set to Work Offline. That is>under the File menu. It should not be.That fixed it, Jim! Wow, I would've never thought of that, since I use Firefox 99.5% of the time and only ever use IE for a work website that requires it. Thank you!Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
  10. >Hi Lewis,>>I just checked and both servers are up and running. Could it>be your firewall or anti-virus blocking things?Well, this gets weirder. Not only can I not connect to HiFi still after several reboots (with firewall + anti-virus + spyware checker enabled or disabled), I also can't use the Flight 1 wrapper to install some new software I bought (Eaglesoft's Citation II Expansion Pack). It just gets to "connecting to Internet" and exits. But all my other Web stuff--surfing, email, online games--is working fine. Very strange.Thanks for checking the servers, Jim. I've got some debugging to do on this end.Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
  11. Still can't connect after a reboot. This is most odd. I'll keep trying.Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
  12. >Hi Lewis,>>I just checked and both servers are up and running. Could it>be your firewall or anti-virus blocking things?>>Thanks,>JimWell, I haven't run it in a few days, but everything else Internet-related is working just fine, and I haven't recently updated AS6 so ZoneAlarm shouldn't flag it (and it isn't). Maybe it's some sort of glitch with my ISP or something between here and HiFi. I just tried it again and it won't connect, regardless of the primary/secondary force settings. I'll try rebooting to force an anti-virus update and diddle with some things on my end. Thanks Jim!Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
  13. 9:00 EST on Sunday 13 January, and my AS6 can't connect to either of the HiFi weather servers. Doesn't matter whether "Force Primary" or "Force Secondary" are checked or unchecked, AS6 just sits at "Connecting to HiFi DataNet" forever. Probably just a momentary glitch, but I thought I'd post on it anyway. :)Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
  14. Thanks, problem solved!Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
  15. I see that the Wilco A330/A340 package has been upgraded from version 1b to version 1c. Does anyone know what the changes between the versions were?Also, an odd problem--I'm curious if anyone else has had a sound problem with the Edelweiss Air A330-200 Rolls-powered repaint that comes off the Wilco website. It doesn't have any engine sound, but the A332 repaints (NWA, AFR) and A343 repaints (AFR) I've downloaded all work fine.Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina
