  1. In my case the problem was not the port or the cable but the poor soldering of the RJ-45 port to the circuit board (dry joints) and I suspect it is the same for most failures of which there seem to be many. If you have soldering skills it is a reasonably easy repair as described in this thread. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/617788-i-repaired-my-alpha-yokes-rj-45-port/ or if still in warranty return it. Mick
  2. As Mace said. In addition I also keep keyboard profiles for each aircraft with different views sets etc. Not helping but I do not have a problem with profiles. As ffpilot I do save profiles before each update, saves a lot of time if needed. Mick
  3. I use joytokey $7 works for all controllers (I think) and there is a demo before purchase. Currently using to link Opentrack to Honeycomb yoke Mick
  4. Well I had to reinstall as I said earlier from a fully working sim to nothing after a patch! Trying to load the sim from the store click to play button took me round in circles, emptied the catch, deleted the store and reinstalled no difference, Is it possible the store settings are stored in the cloud and on reinstall of the store it's back to square one? I would like to think I am not a rookie either as have been into flight sims since 1980's and never have the problems I have with msfs with various other flight sims. While I will still use msfs if its working, I now spend most of my time with X-plane. Hope you have it reinstalled and working again by now. Mick
  5. Had a similar thing after a the patch a couple of weeks ago, working fine before patch. After spending a couple of days trying to fix it I gave up and reinstalled the sim (took just under 24hrs at my internet speed) it then said I needed to reinstall the xbox app! no idea why but it worked after. Mick
  6. This is the one I use: Advanced Rendering Options (ARO) only$16 More than 130 parameters can be changed with the sim running so no need to keep restarting. Mick
  7. Just an update for anyone interested. After trying everything I could find on the internet for help with my Microsoft store problem and meticulously following instructions from several different websites on how to resolve this problem I finally gave up and reinstalled the sim, which took just over 24hrs (171.83Gb) at my internet speed but did at least resolve the problem. So thankyou Microsoft/Asbo for putting out a patch which stopped my perfectly working sim from loading (sim went through the last 3 updates without a problem). Thanks to those of you that tried to help. The one good thing to come out of this, I finished the garden fence painting! Mick
  8. Yes I did. Still no further with this. Reported to Microsoft 3 days ago but no reply. Pleased to say the sun is shining again in my part of the UK, so looks like more fence painting is the order of the day. Mick
  9. Already done that, logged out restarted pc and logged in again but achieved nothing. What really gets my back up is the fact the last three updates all went smoothly it wasn't until the hot fix there was a problem, some hot fix! Mick Ps this has done me one favour, went out in the spring sunshine and made a start on painting the garden fence so have a happy wife.
  10. Thanks. I have already tried that but it just takes me to the same box when I click play. Mick
  11. After the last update my vanilla sim copy was working fine, I did not notice any of the issues that some were having, but then came the hotfix. Installed the hotfix via Microsoft store, I now have a box from Gaming services telling me that it is indeed installed but that I need to "install on my device" and from there I just go round in a circle i.e. every time I try to start the sim it just opens this box again. Have tried everything I can think of short of a reinstall which I wish to avoid if at all possible (slow internet 18mbps). At one point I had a message saying the store could not find my internet connection so how did they send that message? Any ideas. Mick
  12. and yet here you are Actually I'm not, I just popped in to see if the latest update was an improvement but have now gone back to X-plane. Why are updates mandatory? in the main, for me at least, they almost always have an adverse effect on my previously working sim. Mick
  13. I definitely did not pay £110 to be a beta tester! MIck
  14. If you have oculus beta installed try removing it and restarting the app. Worked for me with my Rift s. Mick
  15. Hi, My Samsung 34" ultrawide is curved but the resolution 3440x1440 so maybe not what you are looking for. Mick
