  1. Yes and no. If you use a headset then the new clip attachment (costs extra) does away with the need for a hat - otherwise some kind of headgear is needed. Track IR used to supply one free but I don't know if that's still the case.
  2. Thanks (once again) Nils for your reply. Indeed I do have the traffic explorer enabled but I was curious as to what (if anything) was wrong with the View mode itself. I agree that Traffic Explorer is a better option.Thanks again.
  3. If I select Views/New View or View Mode/Air traffic I get a list that appears to go out of sight at the bottom of the screen. I know there are a lot more aircraft available as only Airbus and a few Boeings are showing. I've tried scrolling but that doesn't appear to work. Is there a key command or combination of keys that will allow me to scroll further down this list please?
  4. Well I followed your instructions Nils but although it appeared to have said that the effect was installed to my AI aircraft when I checked around I couldn't see anything had changed in the aircraft.cfg files etc - Then I used the translate gadget which showed that I had to select the aircraft I wanted to install the effect and then (I hope) click the button below. That semms to have done the trick - and the effect appears very well in FSX.Thanks again.
  5. Thanks again Nils - I'll give this a try.
  6. Thanks again Nils - I installed the package and tried the effect in a PAI aircraft. I got quite a good smoke effect although a but the smoke is a bit odd looking once the aircraft was at altitude. I shall now experiment and see how I can change things. Unfortunately I don't think this will be a successful package for all my AI aircraft because adding the panel.cfg and panel folder then makes the aircraft appear in the Select Aircraft in FSX (unlike FS9 when a tweak of the air file could make the aircraft invisible) and so adding a panel/panel.cfg folder to ALL my AI aircraft would make loading and changing user aircraft just about impossible.Thanks once again.
  7. Thanks Nils - I'll give it a try.
  8. >Do you mean engine heat shimmer effect? I got a message some>time ago from nick,he said it definitely will not work in FSX.>I'v searched all over for this,no luck.Saw it on a video>someplace,looked very effective. If you find anything let us>know.Thanks for confirmation that it won't work in FSX - at least I now know I'm not going mad.
  9. Is there one? I've tried adding Nicks Smoke Effects (excellent in FS9) but nothing shows in FSX so I'm guessing that there's a difference in how the two sims handle effects.Has anyone managed to do this please?Thanks
  10. I get a significant increase 30-40% in frame rates using full screen.
  11. Thanks Bryan - I've tried everything (including the downloading the Start Center) but still no joy.I'm thinking that my new years resolution might just be to reinstall XP on my FS machine - but for now I'll use the Center over the network as it does all I need.Best wishes.
  12. Hi BryanYup - UAC disabled and logged in as Admin - I have 2 accounts on my Vista machine - both Admin but one with a password - on either account I get the Vista equivalent of the hourglass ie the circular thingey showing for about 5 seconds then nothing. Checking Task Manager - nothing is active in the Applications tab but FS2CrewX.exe is showing in the Processes.(another) One of those annoying Vista oddities. As I said - the Center (Centre) works fine over my newtwork on the XP machine - suppose I should be grateful really :)
  13. Hi BryanI've recently installed both the 767 and 747 for FSX onto my system. Trouble is I cannot get the Start Center to start. Checking the FS2CrewFSX Start Center folder I found 2 exe files and 2 ini files:FS2Crew.exe 1618Kb dated 30/06/2007FS2Crew.ini 0Kb dated 29/06/2007FS2CrewX.exe 1658Kb dated 14/11/2007FS2CrewX.ini 0Kb dated 14/11/2007Double clicking on either exe file and nothing happens although Task manager shows activity.I should add that I'm running Vista 32. Double clicking on the icons from my networked WinXP machine brings up the Start Center OK.
  14. I don't know the answer Barry although I believe it was promised before Christmas. However I DO believe that the SP2 to be released is a different animal to the SP2 released with Acceleration.
  15. Have to say that using AFX gives me a degree of security as it will list all the AFD files and I can sort out the duplicates that way - not as conveneint as ScanAFD though.
