  1. Just got a new Thrustmaster T.Flight Stick X joystick. It works well with FSX, but I just can't figure out the automatic and manual programming modes. It has a red light to show the automatic (default) mode, but you can change the light to green and set up your own button functions. The manual is not clear at all about how to do this. I also don't understand the mapping button. Can anyone that has this stick tell me how to do the manual programming?
  2. Anyone know of a splash screen randomizer that works with Windows 10?
  3. Trying to install my old MS Sidewinder Precision Pro joystick on my Windows 10 PC. It wouldn't install just by plugging it in, and also when I installed the CD. Anyone know how to get this working? If not, any recommendations for a new similar joystick?

    New GTX1060

    1920x1080 resolution. Old card was a GTX295. The Alienware PC is about 8 years old. It has an i7-950 CPU at 3.07 GHZ (4 cores). Also running 6 GB of DDR3 RAM (NB Freq of 3210 MHZ and DRAM Freq of 481.5 MHZ - 3 sticks at 960 MHZ each). How does this look for running FSX?

    New GTX1060

    Just installed a new GTX1060 card. Still getting a few stutters. I would think with a card like this I wouldn't have to worry about turning down settings. Anything I can try?
  7. I just installed the scenery and also see the missing roof. Did you find a solution yet?
  8. Looks like I fixed it. I found an old anfs2 traffic file from FS Live in my Addon Scenery/Scenery folder. I deleted it and now all is well. Thanks.
  9. OK, here's where things stand now. I uninstalled MT 6 and then reinstalled it. Everything went fine. I then installed the 6.0a update. I chose the Summer 2015 Schedules and went to Charlotte. Still have all US Airways paints, and they are all still listed as CACTUS in the Traffic Toolbox Explorer. Since everything looks fine as far as my installation, what can I do now to get it to work correctly? Everything always worked fine when I used the old MT 5.4c.
  10. I think I may have a bigger issue. I tried to use the 1965 schedules at Charlotte, and no old planes appear. I still see all the US Airways Airbuses. I checked the 3 big mytraffic bgl files in Scenery, and they were all updated to the time I chose the schedules today. What do I need to to do now?
  11. So, just to verify, 78 would then look like this? Thanks for your help. [fltsim.78] title=A320 MyPaint87 sim=A320 model=FSX-CFM56 texture=My217 atc_airline=AMERICAN atc_parking_types=GATE,RAMP atc_parking_codes=AAL,USA,AWE ui_manufacturer=MT Airbus ui_type=A320 ui_variation=American ex US Airways atc_heavy=0
  12. I think I'll try deleting the fltsim.78 section tomorrow, and that should get rid of the Cactus entry altogether. Still not sure why it's working as is for everyone else though.
  13. I guess it takes quite awhile. But in MT 6, all the airbuses have been changed to American colors. I also see in my Traffic Toolbox, that the flights are showing as Cactus still, which would connect them to the US Airways colors. Somehow I need to change something so the flights are American in ATC, and the colors are American also.
  14. I installed a .dds file viewer, and opened the files. They do show the US Airways colors under fltsim.78 and the American colors under fltsim.217. So the textures are there. For some reason FSX thinks the airbuses should be in US Airways colors instead of American?
  15. For the A320, I have these 2 relevant entries: [fltsim.78] title=A320 MyPaint87 sim=A320 model=FSX-CFM56 texture=My87 atc_airline=CACTUS atc_parking_types=GATE,RAMP atc_parking_codes=USA,AWE ui_manufacturer=MT Airbus ui_type=A320 ui_variation=US Airways 2007 colors atc_heavy=0 [fltsim.217] title=A320 MyPaint217 sim=A320 model=FSX-CFM56 texture=My217 atc_airline=AMERICAN atc_parking_types=GATE,RAMP atc_parking_codes=AAL,USA,AWE ui_manufacturer=MT Airbus ui_type=A320 ui_variation=American ex US Airways atc_heavy=0 The texture files themselves are.dds files and I can't open them or look at them for colors. I wonder if I'm not choosing the Summer, 2015 schedules correctly. Can you tell me how you did it? I'm not using P3D, but I installed things as you did. My Communicator still says 6.0 though, not 6.0a. Burkhard also sees the Amerian colors, except for the CRJ's. Not sure what my problem is?
