    Approach in 1949

    Tom Gibsons outstanding list here should get you anything you need...http://www.calclassic.com/links.htm. Also here is the homepage.http://www.calclassic.com/ Denny
  2. I used to have the same thing happen while in flight if I hadn't touchedthe yoke for quite awhile. The same thing would happen if I paused thesim for any length of time. All my assignments would show ok but no control. When I paused it on the ground, I'd come back to find theview continually panning. Even shutting down the sim and restartingwouldn't stop it.In my case I believe it was a Windows issue because I had to rebootand then it would be recognized. I later found out that just unplugingand repluging the yoke, with FS9 still running, would force it to be recognized.

    Well in Fla or the South of Spain a cardboard box might not be toobad, but where I live they're kinda drafty.:-violin Yes and I'd always heard "If it comes equipped with tires or ___you gonna have trouble with it.":-zhelp As to the racy vs the durable,hopefully you'll outgrow the finicky, High Maintenance equipment.I believe it was W.C. Fields who said "Ah yes; I was once married to abeautiful blond......She drove me to drink....it's the only thing I'mindebted to her for." :-badteeth :-beerchug
  4. Or for a quicky for the U.S. http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/ it'lllet you see where the heavy stuff is happening.
  5. I used to have the same thing happen in FS9 and something similar towhat your doing would "Fix" it for awhile. I'd click "exit flight"when the dialog box came up that said....do want to end flight, I'dclick no and the flight would resume with increased performance.It's almost got to be an issue of memory not being released.

    Peter:Was going to post and see if anyone knew where you had gone.I seem to remember you mentioning some AHEM! marital difficulties andwas hoping that you were not sleeping in a cardboard box somewhere:-roll A buddy of mine came home from a week on the road and found a completelybare house and equally bare bank accounts.My EX was thoughtful enough to leave a mattress, blanket, table and chair, one set of silverware, a cast iron skillet, and the fridge.Seems she didn't need the fridge as it was furnished in her apartment.Anyhow....Welcome back!!!

    Challenging/Interesting Approaches

    There are a whole series of "Dangerous and difficult approaches" in theAVSIM library. They were compiled for FS9 as flight files but I don'tknow if FS9 .flt files work in FSX. But you could have a look at themand set some up for FSX if they don't.

    Should I be getting 4.8-5.1 fps with these stats?

    I think you'll find if you cut AI traffic back to 15%...autogen to sparse... water to 1x ...bloom shadows off,and weather to fair, you'll get 20 plus most places with every thing else set pretty high.I know I do and my specs are inferior to yours.

    runway visibility

    Short answer; Visibility.....no lighted objects.RVR.....lighted objects. From the AMS Glossary;"runway visual range
  11. Try this:Click start...run, type "dxdiag". Click "OK". This will bring upthe Direct X interface.Select the sound 1 tab and lower the acceleration slider a notch or two.Do the same for the sound 2 tab it might help the problem.Bert is absolutely right, this kind of indicates that you are at theragged edge of your systems capability, so reducing in sim sliderswould help as well.
  12. Now THAT is useful information.....particularly since it comes froman ex Vid Card employee:-hah

    I get this "heads up" view

    Ed;I think I'd delete your config file and let fs build a new one. It sounds like a button function somehow got assigned to the pedals.

    Conveyer Belt Takeoff- Mythbusters jumps in!!!

    Larry;Retry your experiment with a piece of plastic or similar mounted justabove the belt to block the "Wind" that might be generated by the movement of the belt.Also I've seen recent Utube vids of guys launching and recovering MODELaircraft from vertical status.....something that to my knowledge hasnot been done with real aircraft.Probably something to do with not being able to duplicate the horsepowerto weight ratio. Also prop size would figure in.In other words if everything is to SCALE....IT WON'T FLY..

    I HAVE 30 FSX DX10 FPS!

    I've been dying to use this.

  18. I'm disappointed Christian, I figured a Pro like you would havechosen a more elegant repair....like DUCT TAPE :-badteeth
  19. Try using the search function of these forums.I just typed stutter in and it returned 194 PAGES full of threads andsaid there were more.

    Elevator Trim

    Hi Roger;Welcome to the forums.The easiest way I've found is to do the final trim with the throttle.FS will not trim quite like the real deal but you can get it close andthen use power to stabilize it.
  21. Hi;Welcome to AVSIM. Answer to your question....I'd get more RAM.Not to appear inhospitable, but I think if you'll check back thru thelast 50 or 75 topics in this subforum you'll find most of your questionsextensively discussed.
  22. Just bought a 1950xt 512MB for $139.00 with a $50 mail in rebate fromNewegg.
  23. Muz;Yup! Drop your memory speed to like 83%... that ought to give you665MTs and an actual memory BUS speed of 333Mhz. I'd also set the timingto "Optimal" instead of setting your own since what we are looking foris STABILITY.I really doubt you'll notice any performance difference.
  24. Muz;Now I'm gettin confused....per your OP;"First my spec'sAsus P5N32-E SLI (Latest bios n drivers)Q6600 Quad 2.4 @ 3.04g Ballistix Tracer PC-8000 LCD Ram 1:1XFX 8800GTS 640MB XXX edition3 x 320gb S-ATA drives1 x Asus ATA DVD/CDR1 x Audigy 2 ZX Platnuim24" Dell Flatscreen"Now, I read that as PC2-8000 which would be DDR2-1000.Per your reply you have DDR2-800 which would be PC2-6400. Which if you have the board bios set to either "Auto" or "By SPD" would most likely give you 400Mhz Memory bus speed giving you 800MTs.Now I'm sure that Asus says something like "Up to 8GB PC-8000 supported" or something similar.....however I just checked with CRUCIAL again and they only Guarantee PC-6400/DDR2-800 for your board....and then only for 1GB.2GB and up, they'll only Guarantee PC-5300..DDR2-667. I just got a new Abit board and Crucial says the same for it, so when I enter bios for the first time I'll have to set memory detect to manual and knock the memory bus down to 333Mhz. At the DDR that'llgive me the 667MTs that they'll guarantee.
  25. Just out of curiosity I checked the Ballistix web site and sure enough,the Max memory speed they recommend for your board with 4GB is 667. So if you're letting it auto detect its trying to run at a speed the board won't handle. Not the memory's fault though. Just lower the memory bus speed and I betcha It'll work.
