  1. Loaded up my 737-800 took off from the Cayman Islands this morning and flew into the eye of Ian. I used ActiveSky for version 5.3. As I approached the eye the winds increased to 65 MPH and when I entered the eye the winds dropped do zero and the sky cleared. Pretty much what the actual Metar reported. Bob G.
  2. Rex Sky Force will work for P3D all version including 5.3. Texture Direct will work with all versions up to and including v4.5 but not 5.3. Environmental Force will work up to version 4.5 but is no longer supported by REX. Hope this helps.
  3. I had the same problems. Found I had to roll back my GPU driver. The latest Nvidia drivers have fixed the problem.
  4. I had the same problem and going back to the 512.95 solved the problem as Benbo said.
  5. Hi Roy. I am 79. I didn't like MSFS since I was a alpha tester. It was bad back then but like you it seems this sim is set up for younger people that are using Xbox etc. I have over 20,000 hours flying for a great VA and thought it would be great to use this sim to fly my flights. It appears it may not be for those of us that fly commercial jet in our VA. I say that because when I go to my VA and look at the number of members that are using MSFS they are few. I bought the PMDG 737 but that is a long learning curve for me when you try to read the pdf files while you are trying to set up the aircraft. Oh well, I guess I will just keep trying. The only other thing I have to do is play golf, and being single at my age there isn't many things a guy can do.
  6. Not a complaint, but just wondering. I have been a user of every version or flight simulator since 1984. (yes I am old) That includes others that were not developed by MS. In the past it has been a pretty much a intuitive thing to set up everything in the sim. Without some sort of manual I can figure out how to set up and fly MSFS 2020 with the exception of the vast amount of views we have to choose from and what do they mean. It used to be I could set up my hat on my joystick and that would enable me to use that setting for cockpit and external views. I assume spot view is now drone view? I could click on the FMC and I could get that view etc. Just wondering if the learning curve is above my old age. Maybe it's just me, but I think we have so many more options with MSFS than in the past.
  7. "I Remember Mama" was a TV show in the 50's also.
  8. Window key + G will bring up the info if you have XBox game bar installed with a bunch of other info.
  9. I had the same after the update. KRSW sunny with scattered clouds but all kinds of lightning.
