  1. Thank you Martin. Ken
  2. The Pilot's Software site (authors of FS Global mesh) has been inaccessible for a few days. Anyone know what's going on there ? Hope this is the correct place to ask about this. If not I apologize. Please redirect me to the proper forum if necessary. Pilot's Software doesn't appear to have a dedicated forum here at AVSIM. Thanks, Ken B.
  3. Many thanks for the link Robert. Best regards, Ken
  4. Hi Robert, I had this same FSX issue for the first time today. It did not alter my flight or stop it and the graphics returned to normal after I moved out of the Denmark area. I think I know how to clear the shader cache folders; however I do not know how to repair the ShadersHLSL folder. How is this accomplished ? I'd like to try it. Screen caps at link below: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gbith46j4b0c0cb/AAA_ByDRhG26xQszcIVj0oWNa?dl=0 Thank you, Ken Boardman
  5. Many thanks Chris. Best regards, Ken
  6. Thank you Scott. You guessed correctly about the aircraft (L1011); My bad. Looks like the search may be over ~ Best regards, Ken
  7. How do we turn on the instrument / gauge lights on the engineer's panel ? Thank you, Ken B.
  8. Chris, This is an old thread, but I'd like to know if it would still be possible to somehow obtain the VIP test version of RFP to try in my FSX. I've missed this bird since switching to FSX. Best regards, Ken
  9. To all, I added a new Aircraft Type, "L-1011 Freighter" to the ACE utility. Also added a "FedEx Freighter" Variation (to the L-1011 Freighter AC Type). I haven't been able to get the ACE utility to send / save the selected pax and cargo load to FSX. Perhaps I've missed something. Any suggestions for a solution will be appreciated. In meantime, will loading cargo and pax using the FSX pull-down menu create any problems? Thank you, Ken
  10. Based on the previous two replies, I believe what I may be experiencing is premature LOC capture. Just wondering if anyone else has reported this. I am aware that width of localizer beam widens (and sensitivity decreases) as distance from the transmitter increases. Ken
  11. Thank you for the reply Michael. To perhaps clarify (or add to the cornfusion) > the "3nm" is not from the runway / airport; it is 3nm from the extended runway centerline on a 30 degree angle of intercept to this extended RW centerline, with the intercept occurring ~7nm from RW threshold. Perhaps, the more (most) puzzling symptom of the possible problem is the appearance of the bold green "LOC" (capture) annunciation on the PFD prior to any movement of the localizer deviation pointer (bottom of PFD). Correct me if I'm mistaken; but shouldn't the Loc. deviation pointer be alive and within limits (~2.5 degrees from centered) before capturing the Localizer? Ken
  12. Perhaps just imagining; but seems that after arming Loc, that the " LOC " (captured) annunciation appears earlier than it should. Better than never I spose' ~ Changed to this (seeming) early capture behavior about a month (20+ flights) ago. Captures before the deviation pointer shows any sign of life and at ~10nm from threshold and ~3nm from runway centerline (extended) and on 30 degree intercept. Is there an easy way to test / verify correct localizer capture. Best to all, Ken Boardman
  13. Thank you for the quick / informative reply Steve. I'll be after it. Ken
  14. Hi Steve, What is the latest official version of DX10 Fixer? The latest version I've found online reference to is version 2.9. Can you confirm this? I think my HW will be OK : I7 930, OC 4.0 ghz NVidia GTX 960 SC RAM 12 gb Software : Win 7-64 FSX Accel I just finished testing FSX, for the first time set to DX10 Preview. It worked pretty good aside from occasional white flashing artifacts. I tested around Seattle first with a (default) Cessna, and then with PMDG T7. Didn't notice any difference in the visuals. Frame rates dropped from 30fps (with Cessna) to ~20fps (with T7). As a side note, I also get (less occasional) white flashing artifacts when not in DX 10 preview. For past 6 years have sort of accepted them as a fact of FSX life with my current HW and SW setup. Best regards, Ken Boardman
  15. This issue appears to be solved. I downloaded the file tonight and successfully extracted it. Thank you to those involved with the fix. Ken Boardman
