  2. Good afternoon Yesterday i did a flight with the Cargolux 747-400F in flight sim 2004. The flight was CLX 774 from ELLX-KIND-KLAX. the flight was great on the ELLX-KIND leg with no major problems. On the KIND-KLAX leg a major problem happenedI mimiced the real flight as close as possible using his flight plan and altitude of the following ROCKY4 STL J8 SGF J98 IRW J74 PKE J104 TNP PDZ4flt level 38000my weight was 594.4 including fuel at takeoff following the proper procedures i departed KIND, engaged the FMC passing through 5000 and started my climb to 38000passing through 30000 it started to seriously lag in the climbthe aircraft looked and felt like it was fighting to maintain speedit took 273 miles to reach cruising altitude and once reaching the aircraft was at Mach 86.0 for awhile until suddenly losing speed very slowly i disengaged the FMC and the auto throttle and tried to fly just on the AP and manual thottle, this also did not get me any speed well needless to say this continued until I stalled. at which point the aircraft autopilot disendgaged and started a decend I took it down to 34000 where i attempted to engage the FMC and Autopilot again, but once level again the speed started to fall until stall was reached well i got real frustrated and turned the sim off and went to sleep any idea what i did wrong because it has been driving me nuts all night?i have the following system GATEWAY FX530SIntel Core 2 Quad processopr q6600 2.40GHZ2048MB memory250GB hard driveNVIDIA G Force 8600GT 512MB Saitek Real feel joysitck Thanks for your help in advanceIan Snow

  4. I need serious help I had a great pushback utility in FS 2004.however my computer crashed and i never wrote down what it was.i know this is a major stretch but let me describe it.there was a pull down menu in flight simwhen selected the pushback menu would show distance back by jet type either small, medium or largewith the option to adjust (and it was by meter's)direction to turni know it is not much but anybody who either has seen thisor used it help would be greatThanksIan
