  1. Weather radar. That is a good one !!!
  2. OK, you are correct Bill ! I had something different in my mind and mixed it up. So skip item 7. Dietmar
  3. Here some more items on my wish list : 5. It should be possible to add NAV aids ( ILS,ADF,DME VOR ) for moving AI boats traffic ( Keyword: Carrier OPS ) by the developer. Along with the route plan for the AI object. Should be possible for addon ships also. 6. The current AI boat traffic is in conflict with the airport ground AI traffic. On my boats radar gauge I see boats and airport AI ground traffic. Needs just to be fixed I think. 7. To add a virtual cockpit ( VC ) to any standard model or addon model independently of the aircraft model. A entry in the aircraft.cfg should remove the current VC and allow to insert a different VC without affecting the aircraft model. 8. A Sim recorder function as a SDK tool would be very nice. It should be possible by the developer to add the recorded situation into the current flight in order to generate a formation flight of a number of aircraft ( military flight show for example ) . 9. Keep XML as a developer program language and also the ACE tool please ! 10. Keep GMAX supported or provide an equivalent tool as part of a new SDK. That's it from my end.
  4. 4. For images not only bmp formats should be supported. Formats being developed with vector graphics tools should be supported also. Dietmar
  5. Hi, I am a freeware developer an this is what I want to see on the new Sim: 1. AI air traffic: I like to make a flight plan for dedicated AI aircraft like any other selected FS aircraft in the Sim. This flight plan entries should be inserted in the FLT file also, same as the flight plan for the normal aircraft, so they are activated as soon as the flight is started by the sim. 2. AI boats traffic: Same function for dedicated ships like a carrier for example. 3. Droppable objects like external tanks or weapons should never be part of the FLT file !! To get them activated a normal gauge button should be used.
  6. Hi Jim, thanks for your explanations. Will test it now: 1. I opened the Youtube site. 2. I clicked on Embed. 3. I copied the link ( which is the one below ) 4. I Clicked on the AVSIM Link icon and inserted the link info I copied under my item 3. above. That is the link below. Now it should work . I hope !!! http://<iframe width="1280" height="720" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/gL__q1ajjC0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Dietmar Sorry, seems not to work. May be I copied the complete text Youtube provided me in the Embed field. So will now just copy the link info here and see what happens. https://www.youtube.com/embed/gL__q1ajjC0 Will it work now ? Dietmar Jim, It works and the video will played if I click on the link. So far so good, but I still do not see the video picture on my post like on the others. Where is the trick ???????????? Dietmar
  7. https://youtu.be/gL__q1ajjC0 This link should will work. The video will show you a Typhoon Eurofighter in a Mission with the US in the Middlke East. I still do not know on how to insert a video in this forum section to show me a pic as it does on the other posts. May be somebody can teach me how It works. Dietmar
  8. Bob, it will restore not your own files but all your entries in the registry, so you are back on a system at that point where the checkpoint has been taken. And you can switch back to your current system if you want. Regarding a image save, you may need a tool like Norton Ghost or ....... ? There are other tools too to provide this function. I think it is mandatory for our FSX hobby to do a complete image save from time to time. I know people doing it at least every 4 weeks. Others every week. It takes just 20 to 40 minutes. In this case you can easy fall back to your saved system with everything. Dietmar
  9. Hi Bob, why not checking your Windows checkpoint/restart list ? If you have a checkpoint from a couple of days ago, just give it a try and fall back. And you should have a complete image save from your system for this kind of situations. Have you ? Even if it is 4 weeks old it it may be better to fall back to that as going with a re-install of FSX etc.. Who knows what else is corrupted. Dietmar
  10. Hi Marcel,I have developed scenerys by using both approaches and i can tell you, the one with GMAX was much more difficult. GMAX is a big,big animal.Drawing the simple graphics with a graphic tool is easy and finally to place this onto the right position is also not a big thing. If you, let' say at the end, have finished your object in GMAX, you have to built first your Object.bgl file with your unique GUID. Now, having this, you need to generate a second bgl file with the coordinates etc. to place your object ino your scenery. However, it's just up to you and having some experience with GMAX at the end is worthwhile anywayl.RegardsDietmar
  11. Hi Marcel,just a general comment to your issue. You have just two ways to place a graphic into a scenery. The graphic can be a bitmap pic or a object. Object: If it is a object you need to develope it with e.g. GMAX and/or you look into some object placement tools whether a object you like is being provided by that tool ( RWY 12 etc.) .Bitmap: If you want to place a flat bmp graphic into your scenery you can do this with the tools described in the Terrain SDK. So, If you would like to place a pic with a Mc Donald Bic Mac on to your runway, just draw it with a paint tool, make a bgl file with the resample.exe tool and insert it into FSX AddOn folder. Your ccordinates for the position to place the BigMac must be part of the input for the resample.exe tool (read the SDK). A lot of other useful scenery objects you will find in the std lib for FSX under this link:http://lc0277.nerim.net/sceneobjects/.Regards Dietmar
  12. Hi Jim,BINGO !! Problem fixed ! It was a corrupted installer package in the installer folder in Windows. The trouble was, that the package could not be identified with any name like ASG, Activesky etc.. The identification is unfortunatly a long, long, long packagenumber. So, no search at all could found this entry. Same situation in the registry. You need this number to locate it. I got this number when I looked into the log script in the Event List of the admin. services. A double click on that event showed me the number in the registry. From there I looked in the Installer Folder, clicked in the subfolder with the associated numbert and PENG! ASV, ASG etc. showed up. Delete on that, delete the registry entry and the problem was gone. So far the story. Installation now successfully completed and now ready to see how the weather looks like in FSX with ASV.Thanks for your support.Regards Dietmar
  13. Sorry Jim,NEGATIV. No HIFI related to ASG, just HIFITime etc. along with Audio Applications. I am quite sure that the registry is clean as far as ActiveSky is concerned. What me concerns is, not to get the MSICUU2started. On my second System it works but here , as I mentioned, I get the error that the Scripthost cannot be accessed. Don't know what to do with that. However, I do not believe that this has something to do with my ASV Installation problem.The Installation process is still recected with the error above. Dietmar
  14. Jim,Thanks for the quick reply.I executed MSICUU, however no ASV showed up. The Download from MSgives me MSICUU2 which I could not execute. It indicates "no access toScript Host" on my system. Dont know what that means in this contex.Any other idea ???Dietmar
  15. Dear Support-Guys,I just bought and downloaded the new 6.5 full version for FSX.When I run setup.exe I get the following error and the setup aborted:"Error 1714. The older version of ActiveSky Version 6.5 and ActiveSky Graphics cannot be removed.Contact your technical support group."So, I guess thats you.Some more info:I had previous FS9 with ASV6.0 on that system and tried to backup with ASV6.5 with no succsess. So, I decided to stop all attemts on that and moved everything ( FS9 plus all the rest incl. ASV6 to my second system in order to install FSX. After FSX install I bought ASV6.5 from SIMMARKET , downloaded, tried the setup and got the error.I cleaned everything in the registry, files etc.. Results on any search ASV, ActiveSky, ASG etc. with no results. The system seems absolut clean. However: Error 1714 . Somewere in the System seems a ASV flag set ?? What can I do to fix this ?Thanks for your supportDietmar
