  1. Reading the tutorials I don't think so. But thanks. There are plenty of flight planners out there but none I have found yet that will let you lock it to the autopilot as FSNavigator let you do.
  2. Been away from FS for a long, long time. I've used FS2004 for a long time and I bought FSX back when it was released but never used it because I never had a computer that could run it halfway decent. I just received a free all-in-one HP computer through Walmart sparks review program and it has a nice 22 inch screen and a fast SSD hard drive. Just a dual core 3.2ghz Intel Celeron cpu but man this thing is faster than I thought it would be. It runs FSX fine though it won't be enough for the new FS sim. Anyway, I'm used to using FSNavigator for planning and having it fly the plane. I found the free version of FStramp that gives me the moving map. His price is way too steep for the full version. Is there anything out there that will fly the route from take off to landing. Tried a Honeywell FMC but the VNav didn't work correctly. Tried EasyFMC but it doesn't do Vnav either. Any good FMCs or other nav programs that work and don't have too steep of a learning curve? Thanks, Tim
  3. Does FSX have the same problem? Yeah Ill stick with 8.1
  4. No it works fine in Win 8.1. No issues whatsoever. It's just Win 10. If I don't find a fix I'll go back to Win 8.1. I just can't believe that after 7 months this isn't fixed. Win 10 is so buggy everywhere else too. It's one conuminous beta.
  5. I've installed Win 10 along with Fs9 on two laptops and 7 months later this still isn't fixed. The bug when you are in full screen and you it the alt key to bring up the menu and the whole screen goes dark, if you want to to get to the menu you have to go to windowed mode first. Well this just won't do. Especially if youre running FSNavigator. Win 10 basically breaks Fs9. Any fixes for thia? I'm going to cross post this in the FS9 so hope that's ok. I need to find an answer to this.

  7. >"Running vista premium with 1 gig ram. FSX takes forever to>load.

Personally I hate vista and would go back to XP if I could. FSX takes 2 minutes to get to the main screen and another 2 minutes to load a flight. Of course when you are sitting there waiting for it to load it seems longer. Is it worth it for me to spend $75 for 2 gigs of ram, more then the software costs, to maybe save a minute loading time? Some how I doubt it. I wonder if it takes this long to load in XP. I long for the days of XP and fs9.
  8. Running vista premium with 1 gig ram. FSX takes forever to load. Will upgrading to 2 gigs ram make fsx start up any faster? I find vista to be slow at start up and resuming. Seems the hard drive is always busy. Is it worth it to upgrade my ram?Thx
  9. Just about as much reluctance as people with XP to transition to Vista. If it ain't broke, don't fix it mentality. I mean XP and FS2004 run hellava lot better than my FSX and Vista.
  10. Being able to fly like this would spark my interest again. Would take away the boredom.
  11. Got my FSX standard today on sale at CC for only $14.95. FS2004 was higher at $19.95.Tim
  12. Well it's installed. I will say that my first impression is, hey, at least it isn't crawling. I fiddled a bit with the graphics and even running at currently low settings, it looks better than FS2004. I was afraid it was going to stutter. I've got some tweaking to do of course, and I guess I better download the patch. Some graphic anomalies to figure out such as, why is my mouse pointer black? and how do I get rid of the menu bar?... but I'm sure I'll figure all that stuff out. My biggest gripe is that it loads so slow but I'm running vista and I'm use to that, haha. I agree I think I will get into the VA community and do some online flying now that I got high speed wireless. Now, where's that darn logitech joystick of mine? Am I sounding enthused yet?Tim
  13. >Have you tried real flying? Maybe it's time to walk away>from the simulator and hit the real sky. I can tell you that>there are no jaggies in the scenery you see, the frame rates>are great, and the realism doesn't get better. What do you>think?>>Dave VegaActually I have flown a Cessna before. You're right, nothing compares. A bit expensive though, haha. Installing FSX as I write. We'll see if this baby will run on my laptop. I've got twice the minimums but something tells me it's going to crawl if I know my FS releases. I was a beta tester on FS2000. Talk about a crawl.Tim
  14. I've been a simmer since FS98 days. However over the last couple of years I've grown tired of the sim. To be honest I thought the sim would have been more realist 9 years later(I'm talking the flight experience). As far as realism, FS 2004 isn't all that more realist then FS98 except the scenery and let's face it, the scenery in FS2004 is still pretty cartoonish. I saw FSX standard on sale at circuit city today for $14.95. I'll pick it up. Do you think this will get me excited about simming again or is it going to feel like the same toy that's it's always been? I'll let you know. Maybe x-plane has a new version, that sim never had much in the scenery department but at least it always felt that you were flying. We'll see.Tim
