    A "View" question

    Hey Alex, thanks for the info suggestion. I also did not know this option was there. I spent all of yesterday searching, including in the Microsoft Flight Simulator "Help" section, for some info on the Menu Bar & did not find this. Thanks again,Bob

    A "View" question

    Hi Jim,Thanks again for solving another problem for me. Don't know how but that did get changed.Sorry that my last post caused such an uproar for you to have to contend with. Had no idea that it would turn into something like that. Glad this is a simple one that no one can take issue with. Hopefully anyway.Best Regards,Bob

    A "View" question

    In the past, I have mainly used the "Windowed mode" for viewing the simulator. When doing so, the menu along the top would always stay there, unless of course I went to the "Full Screen" mode. Then to get it you hit "Alt". Something has now changed & in the "Windowed" mode, I do not have the menu bar, just the blue bar with "Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 - A Century of Flight" To get the menu, I hit "Alt" but then as soon as I hit any key the menu disappears. It does not stay at the top like it used to. I have to continually hit "Alt" to use it. I can't figure out what might have changed & have been unable to find any information on how to keep it in place. Am hoping someone has the answer to this.Thanks,Bob Anderson
  5. Thanks Rob & Jack for your replies.Rob, That is pretty much what I speculated as I hadn't heard of someway of moving gauges back into the aircraft file. It would be an enormous undertaking & probably impossible.Jack, Your suggestion is good & is pretty much the way I install now, to a temporary file & then move from there to the proper locations. I just have not been dealing w/the gauges in the way you mentioned. I may try doing that.Thanks again to both of you.Bob
  6. Hi Rob,This may be a dumb question, but understanding with new addons, that gauges can be kept in the aircraft file instead of the simulator "Gauges" file, what if anything, can be done about the planes that are already installed with the gauges installed in the simulator "Gauges" file instead of it's own aircraft file? I have a lot of addon planes installed in FS9 & the gauges have been installed in FS9 "Gauges" per the instructions usualy given. Is there anyway to get the gauges back into the aircraft file?Thanks,Bob Anderson

    Realistic taxi thrust?

    I guess my first post went awry. Anyway, could I also impose on you for your file?Thanks,Bob Andersonrobert.burdett@cox.net

    What's my error?

    Hi,Is this an updated version of his B-25? What would that link be?Thanks,Bob Anderson

    What's my error?

    Hi,I have both. They are both "excellent". In my estimation, they are both about equal in quality & have very similiar flying charactertistics. The main difference is that Roy Chaffin's does not have a virtual cockpit.They were both developed about the same time amongst some controversery. Roy Chaffin was on the same MAAM team with Bill Rambow & ended up leaving & forming his own RCS organization & came out with his B25.If you like B25s, get them both.Bob Anderson

    No Gauges

    Im just had to do the same re/reinstalling FS9 & had one purchased plane that had no gauges. I had to reinstall it to get the gauges back.Regards,Bob Anderson

    SHIFT+E+3 questions

    Hi Rob,Correct, FS9 is what I am using.Bob

    SHIFT+E+3 questions

    Hi Rob,Bill Lyons came out quite awhile ago with a dehavilland D.H.82 Gypsy Moth that you load the pilot by using SHIFT-E which works for me. SHIFT-E also works for me on any plane to open the main doors. This Gypsy Moth also loads with a right engine cover that is open & sticks straight up. This looks funny when you fly the plane so it needs to be closed. Bill's readme instructions are to close the cover by using SHIFT-E-2. I cannot get SHIFT-E-2 to work. This is the main plane I want to use it on right now but I have tried this combination of SHIFT-E plus a number with other planes for various functions, usually doors, & I can't get it to work. This function with Bill's plane is when I am looking at it in spot plane view, although you can also see the cover in the 2D cockpit view.Thanks,Bob

    SHIFT+E+3 questions

    Must be a problem w/my system then, because I have tried this procedure exactly as you have stated it & the way Rob specifies in his instructions which is "SHIFT+E & then "2" within 1 sec. Just doesn't work for me.Bob
