  1. Sounds like DX10 Preview has been turned on in FSX.

    Lucky Pilot!

    Multiple words not allowed arranged to form a complete sentence! Any closer and it would have been a mid-air collision.
  3. If you are using FSX DX10 Preview, either turn it off or buy and install Steve's DX10 Scenery Fixer.
  4. If you have tons of time and nothing to do, go through Mark Felton's extensive library of videos. He has covered some pretty obscure things and I think he always does a great job with his videos.
  5. For a new or fresh install, I highly recommend FSX Steam Version.
  6. I expect FSX is running out of VAS. Even though you have 8 GB of RAM and a 64-bit operating system, FSX is a 32-bit program, so it maxes out at 4 GB of RAM, regardless. If you are seeing 86% of your 8 GB of RAM in use when FSX freezes, I think that is a good indicator that FSX has hit its 4 GB limit. Try turning down the autogen setting in FSX. Autogen eats VAS like you wouldn't believe.
  7. I am open to the idea of jumping to AMD for my next computer build, which is loooooong overdue.
  8. Tons of small businesses and a good number of big businesses are not able to survive the shut downs and economic fallout of this pandemic. Very sad.
  9. There is no such thing as future proofing with a computer. There is always a new CPU platform, new motherboard chip set, and new graphics card just around the corner.
  10. I agree with TechguMaxC. I think the introduction of the a new socket, the LGA 1200, signals the end of the line for the current LGA 1151, so no further upgrade path for the current socket.
  11. I don't think Carenado modeled that either. There is a bulb there, but no illumination in the virtual cockpit.
  12. You open the cross feed valve, then change tanks, but Carenado did not bother to model the cross feed valve, so it does not work. You can just leave the selectors on the inboard tanks, Carenado uses default fuel system modeling which empties outboard tanks first. Carenado also did not model the fuel gauges to indicate the level of fuel in each tank, instead the gauges indicate the total amount of fuel in each wing.
  13. I'd like some numbers too! The numbers I want are next week's winning lottery numbers, MegaMillions or Power Ball, either one, doesn't matter so long as they make me the jackpot winner. 😜
