  1. A hole (I meant that) thread just for that!? Thanks @Lynchie 👊
  2. Hey thanks for the tips bud. After much fiddling I've pretty much got most things set pretty close to my comfort zone
  3. Hi oqvist I have this old yoke working better. I still need to fiddle with a bit more, especially the ailerons. I think in my impatience, I didn't take into account just how much more unforgiving the control reactions are in this new sim. Playing around with the sensitivity settings is helping ...I did finally find a rtx2080Ti for $1400.00 which included a 3 year warranty, and man, FS11 still brings it to it's knees!. I can get a steady 50fps on a 35"curved but only the one for now. Xmas is just around the corner so I have to be a good lil boy.
  4. Hmm, those really do look like high quality. Good recommendations for sure. I spotted a yoke & throttle quad by honeycomb. These might fall a little bit more in line with my budget. That 2080 Ti I have my eye on will pretty much eat up what the wifey has let me grab, funds wise. Problem is, all three items are out of stock so I have make do for a while. That brings me ask, I have an old CH FlightSim Yoke, but when I hook it up, firstly FS2020 doesn't default the controls like FSX did, and secondly, even when I program the buttons and such, the reaction in the cockpit is funky, especially the aileron/elevator controller. It doesn't center up when I release it. I've calibrated it. Does anyone have suggestions or is it just old hardware?
  5. Hello all. A few years away but excited to see if FS series will at last be able to deliver a great user experience. I'm looking for opinions on yoke/pedals for my new setup. For those who are interested I have spent the last couple of days trying to get a SaitekX45 and a CH FlightSim Yoke to calibrate properly but I'm not having any success. Thoughts and suggestions most welcome.
  6. Often times when Windows gets close to booting or actually does boot and then crashes/reboots it can be a bad stick of ram. Upgrading your VC driver and having a bad ram is certainly quite a coincidence but it's worth a try. Hopefully you know the drill, i.e: remove all but one stick of ram, boot, try again,...etc
  7. Hi Ed It seems it is a Shader rendering problem in P3D so let's hope they addressed it in 2.5
  8. I am and have been an avid user of SweetFX and cannot enjoy flying without it. I do however have a problem after a major reinstall of P3D 2.4 . SFX works fine as long as I don't access any menus. P3D reverts to default when I use either the menu bar or the right click menu. Your thoughts? Thanks!
  9. I'm using Thrustmaster couger. All aircraft are behaving the same way.???
  10. Hello folks I have not had any problems that I can say relate to this problem. When I take off in a payware plane and/or default 747 or a cessna for that matter, the pitch wheel make the plane go straight up. I have seen this problem from others in the past but after 3 hours of research I cannot seem to find any answers. It seems like its a "config" problem but its happening with all m y planes. It even happens when auto-pilot is engaged. I wish I knew what other pertinant information I could provide but I'll start with this. FS9 version.
  11. Hello Don. I should have explained what the solution to my problem was so that others could benefit from it. Sorry for that. In order for Active Sky and Ground Environment Pro 2 (GEP) to work togather you must have the following in place. 1) ASv6 with service update 5 (su5) This product can be found at http://www.hifisim.com/ Install Active sky version 6 and then get the latest update (su5) 2) GEP 2 version 2.1.1 This product can be found at http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?search...d%20Environment Install GEP (version 2.0.0). Then obtain the update (version 2.1.0) which inludes features for Widefs users (network setup). Lastly install the most current update (version 2.1.1) which is needed to link Active Sky and GEP 2. For features and updates visit the GE Pro website at http://environments.flight1.net/gepro/index.htm Be sure to run GEP after each step and verify what version you have by clicking on "about" in the GEP interface. It is not necessary to create texture sets or sky sets untill you are finished. AS for the solution to my original problem: " Ground Environment Pro could not be found which is required to use this feature " The registry path was incorrect. This was probably unique to me because I was on the beta team and many upgades and changes took place which may have led to the problem. I have been assured by members of both teams that by installing to the default path given you should not have any problems. If Your problem persists however, you can verify the path by going to start/run/regedit/ok and make sure that the path does read C/Program Files/Flight One Software. Also be sure you only have one Ground Environment Professional folder. It will be located as such /C/Program Files/Flight One Software/Ground Environment Professional.:-rotor
  12. Hey Jim. I got a hold of Carl and got things figured out. Registry problem. Thanks.
  13. When I click on (GE Pro) on the ASV6 interface I get the following message. " Ground Environment Pro was not found which is required to use this feature " If anyone has had this problem I would like to know how to resolve it. I don't know what other information I can supply that might help track the problem. Thanks. (chik)
