  1. Probably march well too - no bobbers.

    New guy, please help

    There are several methods to get rid of Austin's "authentic" haze - Google the subject (specify XP11) and you should find something you like. Take a look at this http://developer.x-plane.com/tools/datarefeditor/

    Why is this not working?

    Turning eighty, I noticed 'several things that do not work as they used to' - fortunately XP11 is doing well.
  4. From what I've read, the developer "Thranda" has done most, if not all of the Carenado/Alabeo ports to XP and have produced significant improvements to the FSX/P3D versions. Whether or not these improvements are what you're looking for is going to require some investigation.

    Where are the addons?

    Not being much of an 'Airbus' fan I've enjoyed the B732 and B727 from 'FlyJSim'. Also have their Q400 but it needs a refurb. The LES Saab will keep you occupied as will the new Aerostar 601P from Avia71. The freeware X738/739 are getting better all the time.
  6. 'FSEnhancer' and the 'Ultimate Mod'. Not your REX but better than default.

    P3d 4.3 not installing correctly

    Bad luck - try XPlane and you'll be in the correct forum.
  8. Could be the problem. Middly/i5 3570k/GTX1060/16gb RAM/monitor-windowed/1980x1020.Graphics: Visual Effects.....................................3/4..................................................High(HDR) Texture Quality..................................3/5..................................................HIGH Antalias..............................................3/5..................................................4XSSA World Objects....................................3/4..................................................HIGH Reflections..........................................0.....................................................MINIMAL Lots of pros and cons about Nvidia?
  9. I need to talk to that person who has the definitive answer to antaliasing and how to get it in XP11. Before I take a screenie I advance the game graphics to far right on antalias and you can see the difference. If however, I leave it there, my machine starts to grunt until I return to the workable but jaggy setting. Neither Nvidia inspector nor Nvidia control panel seems to do anything (I've been known to screw-up). If I'm missing something, I'd sure like to know it.

    Why is this forum dying?

    Don't know nuthin' about P3D but I'm getting a glow of enthusiasm for XP. I believe the man in charge of LR senses this and the ball will hit a slight but continuous downhill grade. Having JV and the gang at Orbx joining the fun ain't gonna hurt a bit. A sneaky hunch says Colin at MilViz may be a fan and I know from talking to Bill Ortiz he'd love to have his whole "Lionheart" library converted to XP.
  11. Long time FS2004/FSX'r - never bought into P3D and finally took the plunge into XP11 waters. Though I do have a massive software graveyard, am encouraged by all of LR's current innovations and what they're planning next.

    Chopper question.

    One thing I'd forgotten to do was click on SAS - much more user friendly. Thanks for the replies.

    Chopper question.

    When I first assigned the X52 throttle I noticed it reversed itself for helo's and it does give me RPM's but, with the 407 I can't achieve lift off pitch with it. I assigned another non axis for collective and it seems to want to but not much - it's a handful.
  14. I'm using a Saitek X52, flying the Dreamfoil B407. Which axis/button can be used best for 'collective'?
  15. Andras meshes were the best thing ever to improve XP.
