  1. Try Taxi2Gate facebook page by searching google, also did you look in scenery data folder and set config program?
  2. On the black texture fix above. MMMX extreme added a folder to FSX /c; (xt86)/ microsoft games/ program files/ Microsoft Flight Simulator X/ texture/ t2g2.dds,t2g2lm.dds. Since they did not install into p3dv5 you must copy paste those into P3Dv5 texture folder. This worked for me
  3. Also to correct black textures go to P3dv5 main texture and copy two textures BLDU2.dds and BLDU2LM.dds to desktop once on desktop rename BLDU2.dds to t2g2.dds and BLDU2LM.dds to t2g2lm.dds. When done either backup or overwrite by copying to your MMMX Terrain texture texture folder . No more black textures Gregg
  4. from Ron Ainscouth on this subject said turn off reflections it is a known item with truesky and LM are trying to fix in v 5.1
  5. For background on fleet changes, google the airlines wiki they have a wealth of info that can be useful in determining what 787-900 is replacing or was that airline a different name... etc
  6. As far as FSDT i directed it to install on a separate drive it creates "addon manager" folder with all of their scenery. The Documents folder is only for add-on-xml.
  7. i turn on Bathymetry with orbx n america the carribe waters has variance, are water textures less opaque than others? It looks like they are imo.
  8. I had three OOM Jfk to Iad all occurred approaching northern Chesapeake bay flying 737-800 from fsx, normal veg orbx ftx FSDT JFK and FB KIAD. Last try turned down to sparse complete flight from Langley to KIAD.
  9. probably should upgrade your video card to one that supports shader (not sure what version) technology ti 4600 was a great card in its day i guess the problem you will have is finding an agp card. Shaders are used for wing flex and thats what your video card can't render. check http://www.zipzoomfly Short of that wait for the Vista and DX10 not sure how to disable wing flex maybe turn off special effectsI am sure someone else may have another opinion...good luckGregg D
  10. something else... on an overnight flight "polar" from PANC to Stockholm (excuse me I am having a Trappistt moment) i was vectored on approach to bla bla left while the ai were vectored to the right parrelle which is cool not running over those saabs with the global 747greggd
  11. I would go to Nvidia site and download drivers 91.47 Sept 14 2006I have my card set up as the others (Dell 7800gtx 256mb)with no problemsGregg D
  12. >Quick and simple guys.>>Question: 1. Pentium, AMD hardware specs and FPS within FSX?> 2. Nvidia, ATI hardware specs and FPS within FSX?>>CheersI have a amd 64 4800 x2 (zip zoom fly at $280.00) 2 gigs of corsair ram and geforce 7800 gtx i bought on ebay cheep cause i wanted to save some money for the dx10 vista deal. anyway on the beta with the some of the autogen fixes and with autog set to the right, low x2 water, NO bloom-cause each water texture is written many times, 1 mt terrain, max default atc and airport traffic, flying from logan boston to providence i am steady at 21 fps locked at 21 fps with weather. Gregg D
  13. i disagree out of the "box" the BETA2 at default settings has more autogen greater terrain detail more detailed airports more airports better atc tracking better clouds better water the list goes on than out of the box fs9 with default settings. the scalebility of the scenery acts as headroom for future more powerful machines.i was at the AVSIM convention and I believe MS made it clear that it was ready for continued periodic upgrades or patches starting in during the holidays preceded by the Vista dx10 etc. whether or not you buy FSX is your opinion and yours only so who cares but you will be missing neatest part of simming the developement and perfection of the sim!byeGregg DAMD 64 4800x2 2gb Corsair TwinX 7800gtx 256mb etc etc etc
  14. many designers side stepped the fs9 fds shoe horning older gauges into fs9 (remember it was backward compatible too) the problem is the future! fs9 fds predicated this and advised against using these gauges. fsx will not allow these gauges and will give as many error messages as there are gauges at the very least back your orignal gauge file if you don't follow the opines in this thread gregg d
  15. do your have windows pro sp2 (XP)? is so you can do a repair install but you need to google to get instructions. there is also a utility included in pro call sysprep which will allow you to lock your previous settings an add it to your new comp. i switched 939 mb going to a pci express from agp then bought the best least expensive video card on ebay. did that because of the new dx 10 card coming out. or you can run fsx with low settings until vista then upgrade at that pointGregg
  16. Ok after posting I found that my sliders were set to low with no autogen, once this was corrected to what i indicated the default scenery from the ultralight was 35-46 fps. anyway i guess this shows the scalability of the sim even it its beta versionbye Gregg D
  17. i think there was a guy wanting to sell his 6800gt on the swap board for 150.00 or best offer! not sure either of yours card type (agp vs pcie) athough suspect yours to be AGB from your specs.Gregg
  18. Emileuncheck the AA box in settings then make adjustments in Nvidia control panels 3d setting3Gregg
  19. don't usually post but was at the conference too! I did the same as you (7800 Gtx 256) plus I have since put the sim on its own drive sata 7200 with swaap file going to its own drive and flying the opening default flight was getting nearly 70 fps ave at dusk and was near 30 at jfk at night with the 737 sliders set as outlined by adam at the conference. before was 15-20 fps and 8-14 at jfk. go figure! 100 % default traffic 5% boats and cars home built AMD 4800 x 2 2 gb Corsair ram samsung hard drives....o-clocked 7800 gtx using coolbits otherwise stock using 91.47 drivers
  20. If your in US might try ZipZoomFly.com large selection of vid cards have a spec MSI 7900gt 275.00 plus a 40.00 rebate free shipping too! or 1.99 for 2 days fedex. Also EBAY Gregg
  21. hi guys i didn't get in but who cares I believe that T Dragger said the blurries patch did not make the beta in one of his posts you might check me out on that though! have fun!!gd
  22. Hey guys.....This is the virtual world not the real world. In the real world aircraft take off on the wrong unlighted runway.Lets be happy with what we have developed I am sure you smart guys out there will figure sum-thing out in the next year so chill and wait for the...yikes beta!?....or maybe wait for one more month, then let our collective genius work...peace y'allbyegd
