    Landing lights...and fog

    I think I had this file on my older XP computer. But now looking to install it on my new WIN/7 I don't find it at AVSIM or FLIGHTSIM either? Any hints?As I remember it worked pretty well, at ;east for flyable aircraft..Bill
  2. Hi Dillon,Opps, too late. Before you posted on Oct 27, I already moved FS9 to C;"'D:W7 FS9'".. Then I also installed Genesis, UT, GE PRO, etc... Also, in my old installation in XP, there were some issues with REP that caused some visual problems that I was never able to correct.. even with lots of help from folks in the AVSIM Forum ... SO I just got used to flying with those few weird things.. That's one reason I didn't want to just transfer everything from the old OS to my new computer. That and.. just too much old stuff so I though I would start fresh to a great degree,,,Again, thank you for your help...Bill
  3. Hi Dillon, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide this information. I have a new W7 system with 500 Gb h/d--partitioned thus-- - Drive:C- 304 Gb (plus the installation I guess) and Drive:D 163 Gb- emptyI also have my old HD Drive "F" with my old FS9 still on it. Before I found your post and other's, I already installed FS on the new Drive C;Program Files(x86) oopps.!!My question is---Can I still move FS to a new folder such as --"'D:\W7 FS9'" as you suggest? So far I have only installed the FS APP, and a few of my old aircraft-- a few Carenados, HS748 and other Cal Classics, couple of POSKY's, etc. the easy ones... I have not re-installed any scenery yet..I may ask other questions later but this is the first and most important. I did successfully install the 'Large Address Aware'...patch Many thanks,Bill

    RWY 12

    All this is really very helpful. I have the 3 RWY 12 files downloaded-- #1 is installed as directed-in the Add On Scenery folder.But- I am not 100% sure where the other 2 sets of scenery and texture files go,The Installation instructions for downloads #2 & #3 say to-"copy only the Scenery files and Texture files (not the folders) into the """NEWLY CREATED""" Microsoft GamesFlight Simulator 9Addon SceneryScenery (and into FilesMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator 9Addon SceneryTexture)."What does "NEWLY CREATED" mean? The Addon Scenery folder has been there all along.Does it really mean to copy the indicated files into -- "------FS 9Addon SceneryScenery" ( or texure)or should it be into "---- Flight Simulator 9Addon SceneryStatic Objects LibraryScenery(orTexture)" ?

    RWY 12

    But are these really all the files? Or have there been additions that would be missing and found elsewhere?

    The ideal way to install Mesh

    Hi again Joe,Well I just took a first few flights with World Buffer and North America 1 installed--juneau, Banff, etc... WOW! What a difference. There are a few places where lake edges have become a little 'squared off' but-- no big deal for's a whole new ball game, which I know all other previous FSG users discovered before.So, a a great big thank you for all your time. I followed your easy instructions and the installation was a breeze.

    The ideal way to install Mesh

    Hi Joe, Thanks for all the FSG help. I have installed to a temp folder and when I have a bit more time I will put it in FS9.Tiger---I think so, that Ford V8-- goes like a bat out of ####-- :>))) got it in--- umm 1964ish, i think...

    The ideal way to install Mesh

    Hi Joe, OK thanks. I'll give it a go.1-Before I "next" on the installer. :>)what will happen "next?" Will I be able to select where to install the North America 1? I plan to put it in "addon scenery/fsgenesis/na1"2- Should the World Buffer Terrain be above or below North America !, and the rest of the CD's.Thanks again

    The ideal way to install Mesh

    I also just got the FG Genesis package. Haven't installed yet.What resolution of mesh(s) are on each disc- say North America 1 and 2?And What exactly is "World Buffer Terrain."

    Panel gauge ERROR question

    Hey Rob,Well, you just saved my butt again. I downloaded a Brittian Islander. tried to install according to the instructions which included one of your dreaded 'self-installers.' And sure enough, the same problem happened again.So i searched the threads here for this one, got your file and put the FSsound.dll in the modules folder and voila..back in business (so far).So, thanks again

    Panel gauge ERROR question

    Thanks again Rob,I'll install it and try it out in the Fokkers as soon as I can.

    Panel gauge ERROR question

    Hi Rob, That did it. Thank you..In fact there was NO FSsound.dll in the Modules folder at all-just a 'read me". I don't kno where it went. How in the world did all my other aircraft work? Beyond me.On another matter- I downloaded your for the Fokkers a little while ago but was not 100% sure about installing, even after reading your clear instructions. So I chickened out.Just to be sure-- After downloading the zip file, I should just extract THAT entire file to the FS9 folder and everything will go to it's proper place? -using folder names, overwrite, etc..(I do know how to make the Aircraft cfg changes)Thanks again for checking in here and your generous help.
  14. Hi all,I've just recently encountered an ERROR problem with some gauges, making it not possible to load a number of aircraft, and wonder if someone could offer a suggestion...I've had most of these planes quite a while and there were no problems until a few days ago when I downloaded a few aircraft-- a POSKY CRJ and-- a couple VISTALINERS repaints..that seems to be when the problems started..The ERROR reads-- "Unable to load some aircraft or software. You may continue using FS but this aircraft or software will be disabled." Then the gauge is listed-- Occasionally if I kept clicking "OK OK OK OK " or "X"X"X"X" it seemed to force FS to load the aircraft and everything is fine.. but recently that no longer works and I must ctrl/alt/dlt FS and load FS from scratch. I've spent several hours going through many aircraft, experimenting etc.taking many notes...and I think I have it narrowed down to the FFX/SGA/Vista Liners- 737s, 727,s and one of the DC-10's. I have a bunch of 727's and 737's --probably 30 in all w/paints.. and just a few DC-10s.1----For the 737s I have 2 panels that I've used-- the Richard Probst on some, and one called "FAB-something" - i forget.. on others. I'm sure you know whose it is :>)It's the Probst panel that causes the problem here. And the gauge in question is-- 'aircraft/"name of aircraft 737-xxx"/Panel/b732.gau'. If I take that out of the panel folder the aircraft loads but of course there are no gauges. Wherever this gauge is in the panel, that plane will not load.2-- On all the 727-200 aircraft the panel is "alias=Panels/727-200" which is in Aircraft/Panels/727-200. The panel is by Steve Southey. The gauge that so far causes the problem is " RP727.gau." I took this gauge out of--somewhere, I guess the gauges folder, maybe FSFSCONV-- and now all the 727's seem to load fine. I also got an ERROR for "RP727_2" so I removed that from FSFSCONV.Are you still with me? :>) We're nearing the end...3-- I have 5 DC-10s.. 4 are fine and all use the same panel- ALIAS-Panel/DC-10 which is in Aircraft/Sga/panels/DC-10.The 5th gets the ERROR message for the gauge--"Gauges/DC10_ACC.gau".So far I can;t even find that aircraft in the AIRCRAFT folder. Yikes-too many planes. :>))I also removed, sometime yesterday-- "Rp733.gau" and dfd_gpws.gau"That's about the best I can describe the situation..Thanks you to anyone who takes the time to help out. There's a blizzard hitting tonight/tomorrow so I have plenty of time to work this out. :>)Cheers,.
