  1. This is a bit of a shot in the dark, but does anyone know if there's a Keyboard short cut (either for the RFP 747 or Fs9 in general to disengage the auto throttle) for the life of me I cant find one. I want to assign one of the buttons on my Yoke to disengage it shortly before Touchdown. I've not flown the 747-200 for a long time, but I've recently brought it out of retirement (ie. re-installed it), I;m sure I had it working before
  2. QUOTE - The section is courtesy of FFX/SGA other than I figured out to use a 4 for my 5.1 speaker setup.SOUND=1SOUND_FADER1=0.500000SOUND_FADER2=0.460000SOUND_FADER3=0.620000SOUND_FADER4=0.800000SOUND_FADER5=0.810000SOUND_FADER6=1.000000SOUND_QUALITY=2Channels=4 --> use a 2 here if you only have 2 speakers, I have a 5.1 speaker setup.SamplesPerSec=44100BitsPerSample=16 - QUOTEI understood that FS9 couldn't cope with a 5.1 surround sound system. Would this change - mean I get sound from my rear speakers?
  3. A qucik and probably simple question.I've used fs2crew for a while now woth both the FS9 737 and the pmdg version.I fancy getting the PMDG 747 version - as these flights are a little longer - can you save flights or at least resume mid-cruise?
  4. Cheers,One more question will ASV6 change textures mid-flight or do you have to restart MSFS?
  5. I think I may havie discovered what I've done.While I was experimenting with ASG I appear to have changed the texture of the sky. I've now changed teh sky colour to "Prime". This seems to have made the skies blue again (see attached).Now this brings me onto the next point. It seems I have mis-understood what ASG does. I thought it merely allowed you to slect specfic sky themese or weather for ASV6 when NOT using online updates. I believed that when using online updates, ASV6 would slect the sky texture, cloud type etc.. to most accurately depict the RW weather.Where have I gone wrong with my understanding? How does ASG work/what is it for? What options are best for realistic weather within ASG/ASV (I've read the post on ASV6 "Options" furtyher up this board) Or ist it my own personal opinion?Cheers
  6. Recently I tried various themese within Active Sky Graphics before returning to using the online updating feature of ASV6. As I normally fly on VASTIM I tend to just use ASV6.Before I experimenetd with ASG my sky was a decent shade of blue, now it is more of a mucky grey/blue. At first IO thought this was just the lcoacl wather (of whereever I was flying) however I now suspect that I've messed something up and ASV6 isn't updating the graphics.Attached are two pics I took before the problem started - 2 pics after and my .ini fileCheers
  7. I've also noticed another problem that is most likely linked/related to the 1st. (Using Online weather). (Radar Contact) ATIS is reporting winds as 090 @ 8kts - where as the Active Radar (which I based my descent planning on) gave winds at my arrival aiport as 215 @ 8 kts.I've just down a "Fetch" from the main screen and this gives the weather at LGAV (my destination) as 030 @ 8 kts. All seem to agree on the speed - but all sources disagree on the direction.I have done a "Refresh AI".
  8. I've only just purchased AS6 so this might be rookie mistake but basically what I see out of the cockpit windows doesn't agree with what the METAR/Wx informations is telling me.E.g. If I select clear skies (online updates disabled) "Wx Configurator/Clear Skies/Apply to ALL locations" Then select "Apply Now" and the "Update and Close" and the "Refresh" from the main screen. All the Wx/METAR information tells me the skies should be clear blue - but I can see clouds aplenty, some quite thick.How could I solve this problem?
  9. Just doing a bit of research.I've currently got 1 20" LCD monitor for running MSFS. I'd like to add in an extra monitor or two. E.g. for docking windows to (FMC etc..). I'm thinking of getting a TripleHead2Go unit. However I don't have any spare flatscreen lying around ;-). However a do have a couple of 17" CRT monitors spare. Has anyone used the TH2GO in this setup (where the left and right screens are a different size/style from the centre monitor?)
  10. I've been having the same problem - I'm guessing that it's something to do with teh Servers that provide the FS Weather Data.I came on here too see if it was just me.
  11. Thanks ROn, that was what I was wanting to know.
  12. I'm considering buying RC4 as I've been impressed by the reviews I've read. But I've a few questions I'd like to ask first.When I fly I like to feel that the SKy is alive and I use Traffic 2005 to provide realistic Airlines/Flight-Plansand Gate/Ramps. From this forum and the website I see that RC is compatible with Traffic2005.However, - Will the AI traffic still appear as in the AFCAD/Flight Plan files, e.g. Mainly BA at Heathrow, Air Malta at Luga etc...?Will RC interact (or at least ppear to interact with AI Traffic - as long as I can hear ATC talking to AI planes, I'm happy).
