  2. >I set it up like that and makes all the difference! No more>jagged edges! Really purrrty!Yeah but if enabling AA on the video driver (instead of on FS9) yields better FPS, I'd prefer to learn how to do that.
  3. >If you are seeing jagged edges on textures especially>aircraft textures you can adjust the AA (anti aliasing)>settings. You should have AA turned off in FS9 and enabled>in your graphics card settings.Do you know how to enable AA in the GeForce 7900GS? I've always enabled it on FS9 -- do I get better FPS is I enable it on the driver and turn it off on FS9?ThanksKerke

Nick, do you have the name of the CFM soundset zip file so I can download it from the library?I used to have the PSS Airbuses (and panel) but now they [PSS] are gone and I have a new computer, so I am panel-less ;-) Can you recommend what would be the best A320 freeware panel out there?Thank you,Kerke
  5. >I would like a real 767 pilot's opinon concerning a question I>have about the 767. Here it goes. All the the 767s that I have>ing FS9 seem to bank very slowly. Is this an attribute of the>real 767?Niorga, I am not a real-life 767 driver but a couple of my friends are. One of them flies the LAN 767-300 and the other drives an American Airlines 767-300, so here it goes... If you're referring to the Level-D 767, the bank turns are very accurate. In fact, the Level-D 767 is THE ONLY Flight Simulator aircraft they have tried with smooth bank angle, just like the real thing. Other complex "and excellent" FSim add-on aircraft such as the PSS A320 and the wonderfull F1 ATR 72-500 fail in the bank-speed reality department, with military-aircraft-style bank speed. Now, note that I am not saying "bank angle"; according to an American Eagle ATR driver I know, the F1 ATR 72-500 bank angles (15-LO and 27-HI) are quite accurate, the difference is that the real-life ATR's bank speed is much much slower and smooth, simular to the Level-D 767.My .02 cents...Best regards from KMIA,Kerke

  7. >Hello, >>My name is Spirit Flyer and I am a flight simaholic! It has>been almost a year since I (thought I) broke the addiction of>MS Flight Simulation.

  8. >Kerke,>>AISmooth is a nice program, but it's not perfect. Some>arrivals are held in a hold well past their assigned arrival>times and sometimes beyond their departure times. I'd really>like to see Michael Sanger provide an option for "first in,>first out" prioritization.Me too Bruce but, until then, I prefer to use AISmooth than to have FS9/FSX ATC do the annoying go-arounds.Best regards from KMIAKerke
  9. >Actually there are several AFCADS for KMIA and assorted>sceneries, although I have and am a big Fan of "Fly Tampa's>Miami" I use Jim Viles version of the AFCAD because it uses>multiple Runways for landing and Takeoffs.

American Airlines by themselves can keep KMIA>active 24/7.>>Bill :( Thank you for your replies, I will try the freebies first and see how it goes. BTW, on the go-around situation at busy airports, I downloaded and installed AISmooth last night and it works very very well with FS9 and WOAI, not a single go-around at 100% traffic at KMIA, 2 active runways both with planes orderly landing and departing. I think Microsoft should license the AISmooth software and incorporate it into Flight Simulator.Thanks again,Kerke
  10. I realize that FS9 came out before KMIA's runway changes. Is there a [good/free] runway update for FS9's default KMIA?Thank you,Kerke
  11. >Kerke: To remove default AI:>Go to X:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator>9SceneryWorldscenery>the X: is C: on my computer - then find this file called>traffic030528.bgl.>All u need to do is rename it - renamed mine to :>traffic030528.bgl.ORIG and FS9 will ignore it.Thank you bursco. Now, if I remove the default traffic and install WOAI, will I see much GA traffic? WOAI seems to only have 4 or 5 GA planes.Kerke
  12. I reinstalled FS9 on my computer and it works great. However, years ago I downloaded a file from the library that replaced aircraft position lights and other lights with more realistic looking lights.Does anybody know the name of that download library file?Thank you in advance,Kerke
  13. >As A newbie, are you in for a Surprise. WOAI and similar>addons place actual real scheduled airlines at airports and>they fly their scheduled routes. A whole new world!Question for users of WOAI with FS9. Once I install the WOAI installer and the individual airliner packages, how do I remove FS9's generic default AI?Thank you in advance,Kerke
  14. >MTX's models actualy perform better than FSX's default>traffic, but there is alot more traffic with MTX so some>people see frame rate issues as they get greedy with the>sliders.

  15. I am also considering a couple of add-ons to replace the generic FSX AI traffic with something more realistic.I don't want to compare products or change this thread's topic, but the other product I am considering is "World of AI", which is free and for that reason IMO worth trying. Is "World of AI" software and its models fully compatible with FSX SP2? I don't use Acceleration, I just have FSX with SP2.Thank you in advance and my appologies for asking a question out of the original poster's topic.Kerke
