  1. Hello everyone...its been a few years. Real life has taken me away from simulation for a while but with the release of MSFS 2020. I am getttng back at it. Looking forward to being an active participant at AVSIM once again. Bob
  2. Just go to Tools-->Internet Options-->Click on the Security Tab-->Click Trusted Sites-->then Click Sites and add https://www.precisionmanuals.com to the trusted sites list....then your cart will work properly.
  3. You will get slightly better performance out of an 8800GTS.Stick with XP or go with Vista 64. XP Pro 64 really was never supported all that well and is pretty much an anomily as OSes go.
  4. >4 gigs DDR3 on a P5k3 Deluxe?>>you are aware your memory is being retarded timing wise by>populating 4 slots and you must be on the black slots for full>operation with either 2 x1GB , or, 2x2GB and those 2GB sticks>will not do DDR3 2000 not even close at decent timings, if>what is available will do it at all.Yeah, I'm well aware of it Nick. I wasn't however when I first purchased everything. I'm running 4x1GB and let me tell you, it was a major pain in the arse getting the memory (all 4 1GB modules) running on this board (poor design and ASUS will blame it on the memory). It's pretty funny how easily the memory can be cranked up with only 2 lots populated (get your act together ASUS!).I was going to drop another $600 on 2x2GB Patriot Viper modules this weekend but bellied up at the last minute cause the original 4GB cost me $1200.I think I'm gonna wait till I upgrade the mobo. Any suggestions?BTW they are the Z9's rated at DDR3 1866
  5. Did you happen to install the FSX SP2 SDK Update? If you did not, it will not be available on the "Tools" menu. As the other SDK is not compatible with SP2.
  6. Well, bass is really not heard it is felt. A subs purpose is to create vibration.Anywhere its placed it will create vibration (who knows what kind of vibration its causing next door. It could have to do with how his apartment is furnished). It all really depends on how your apartment building is constructed. Unfortunately, nothing may be acceptable to your neighbor other than turning the sub off.
  7. >Actually what I'm wondering is what FSX performance gain would>I get from DDR3 over DDR2 if I did spend the money.You will gain nothing of a noticeable difference performance wise on the rig you are planning on building. On the other hand, if your gonna get a tricked out water cooler or phase change cooler and overclock your PC to the hilt, you will see some performance benefit, but its not gonna be huge. In laymans terms the cost is not going to be worth the benefit at least not at this point in time.I took the $1200 plunge on DDR3 (us tech types just have to have the latest and greatest) and I wish I had went with DDR2 and saved quite a few dollars.
  8. Clayton,I do not use VATSIM and I would gather the easiest way for you to get a quick and correct answer would be to ask the question in the VATSIM forum.Edit found the below at VATSIM.Configuring Sound (VATSIM Voice and PTT/Push To Talk): While running Flight Simlator, bring up the FSFDT Control Panel. It
  9. Clayton,If you are using Windows XP:1) Plug your USB headset into a USB port.2) Go to Start>Control Panel> Sounds and Audio Devices3) Click the "Audio" tab4) Ensure that both "sound playback" and "sound recording" are set to your primary audio card (SBLive).5) Click the "Voice" tab6) Set both the "sound plackback" and "sound recording" to your USB headset (Logitech USB Headset), which should appear in the drop-list of devices.7) Click "Apply"Within FSX on the Sound settings page:1) Set sounds to your primary audio device (SBLive)2) Set voice to your USB headset (Logitech USB Headset).That's all there is to it mate. If you done the above steps you should be up and running with sounds from your PC speakers and ATIS, ATC, mission voices, multiplayer voices, voice from lessons etc. playing within your headset.
  10. > Appreciate any feedback from>anyone whose gone through these changes with FSX.The jump from DDR2 to DDR3 is not going to net you much of a performance increase. My recommendation would be to stick with the DDR2. Yes you will benefit from having greater than 2GB in 32 bit XP. You will just need to make the OS aware it. Many are reporting that they are running just fine on Vista 64. I myself am running on Vista 32.
  11. Anyone notice that FSX logbook does not like the date 2/29? Just noticed that all my flights in the logbook had no dates or times assigned. Opening the lookbook revealed a date of 11/30/02 (which still would not display in the FSX logbook). I edited the dates to 2/29/08 and they would still not display.....If I change them to 2/28/08 they display as intended in the FSX logbook.
  12. >hi is the Windows sound devices within FSX or in windows XP?The settings I was referring to are on the Sound configuration tab within FSX
  13. Ron,Most USB headsets are directly supported by Windows XP or Windows Vista and do not require the addition of drivers.I would defintely go for a USB headset so that you can have the added benefit of only having voice (air traffic control) piped into the headset. It makes a huge difference in immersion to have sounds sent to the speakers and voice sent to the headset and it has no noticeable effect on the performance of FSX.
