  1. "spastic noun [ C ] uk /ˈspæs.tɪk/ us /ˈspæs.tɪk/ offensive old-fashioned someone who suffers from cerebral palsy (= a condition of the body that makes it difficult to control the muscles): He was born a spastic as the result of a difficult birth. offensive informal a stupid or clumsy person" As a person who has this, I have no problem with the word. I was under the "Spastic Society" growing up in the 70's. The SS (oh dear) has since changed to Scope. I personally don't find the word offensive but I can understand those who do. I'm sure the op meant no offence, so give him a break. Rich
  2. I'm so so sorry Colonel X, I was just trying to help a fellow flyer. Anyway, Bryan, sent you a private message.
  3. OK, I am newish to x-plane 11, had it about a year, and yes it can be over whelming. First port of call https://forums.x-plane.org/ There are loads of folks there who will be able to help. As far as GTN750 and active sky are concerned, I don't have them so I will not pretend to know what I'm doing. As for scenery, I'm in Hereford and I have found scenery that is good and matches the area well. It covers most of Europe http://zonephoto.org/ It is fidely to setup, but once done, it's easy to setup more. I'll put a screen shot up in a while so that you can see. Hope this helps a bit. Rich
  4. Hi Bryan, What is it you need help with? There are plenty of site's you could visit, and youtube is a good place to look. Rich
  5. Thank you for your time and effort.
  6. Steve, Check out this youtube vidio, might help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEqkz2JxoFo
  7. Assuming your talking about P3D, which I don't have, here is how I did it in FSX. It should be the same. After trying to solve this for a long time using the Siatek Pro yoke, I turned my attention to the aircraft file, and came to the conclusion that there must be something wrong there. Long story short, I changed a few things in the aircraft cfg. I will use the default C172 to demonstrate. In the [airplane_geometry] section only look for the following;- elevator_up_limit = 28.0 //Degrees elevator_down_limit = 21.0 //Degrees aileron_up_limit = 20.0 //Degrees aileron_down_limit = 15.0 //Degrees rudder_limit = 24.0 //Degrees After experimenting, I found that, it you reduce the numbers by 30%, the aircraft will still stall at the correct speeds but handles more like a C172 than a fighter jet. elevator_up_limit = 19.5 //28.0 //Degrees elevator_down_limit = 14.7 //21.0 //Degrees aileron_up_limit = 14 //20.0 //Degrees aileron_down_limit = 10.5 //15.0 //Degrees rudder_limit = 16.8 //24.0 //Degrees Now, this is fine if you are training and need to learn stalls, as require in the real world, but this is a simulator, and as I see it, once you have learned about stalls, you try to stay away from them unless your a stunt or fighter pilot. You need to learn how to control direction, altitude and speed, and given that most controllers are not exact replicas of there real world counter parts, then a few adjustments are required to help make hand flying more realistic. I personally use between 40% to 60% off, depending of the aircraft. These are just my personnal views, and I don't wish to force them on anyone. This is the way I enjoy my flight sim. Hope that helps. Rich
  8. Sorry for the delay, setting up a new rig In Nvidia Inspector, Antialiasing Setting = 8s. Try 8 Just noticed in your CFG the following; // //TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=1024 Should be; IMAGE_SMOOTHING=1 TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=1024
  9. What is the top resolution of your monitor/tv. FS should be the same. NI profile, try just 8 instead of 8S. Can you post your cfg so we can take a look.
  10. Hi there, I'm assuming that you have FS9.1 and not just FS9. Ok, on that assumption, find and download a program called CFF Explorer (http://www.ntcore.com/exsuite.php) Follow instructions to install it. Once installed, open your FS9 folder and find the FS9.exe and right click it. http://s1058.photobucket.com/user/RichDutt/media/CFF3_zpsj4d164tc.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2 When CFF opens, click File Header, then click 'click here. http://s1058.photobucket.com/user/RichDutt/media/CFF1_zpschkdbbb0.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 When you have done that, ONLY tick where I have shown. http://s1058.photobucket.com/user/RichDutt/media/CCF2_zpsw932h0lc.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 Then save it. What you have just done basically, is tell the computer that FS9 can use more memory than it thinks. Not sure, read the site I gave you. My FS9 runs like yours without it, and that's on Win 7, i7 12 gig ram, GFX 640 2 gig ram. Good Luck Rich
  11. Read about this in the Hereford Times and thought someone might be interested. Link below. Hereford Times http://www.herefordtimes.com/news/14289195.Rare_vintage_fighter_jet_to_go_under_the_hammer_in_Leominster/ Auction House http://classiccars.brightwells.com/viewdetails.php?id=6387
  12. Ok, dump the Saitek drivers and replace with drivers called SPAD. Go to youtube (there are others) and watch some on board videos of people flying, and in the real world, you will see that you have to turn the yoke to level out from a turn. As far as the display is concerned, you have to press the function button first to get the stop watch to display, then the stop start button will work.
  13. I'm thinking along the same lines as Jerry, but it a good option. Cheers bud
