  1. Hi there, just convert it to 32 bit, DXT1 or DXT3 bmp-texture. Take care if there's an alpha channel. You might watch the results in Image Tool
  2. As a "Dinosaur" still using FS2004 and ASE I had to realize recently that ASE's server connectivity doesn't work anymore. So no more weather downloads... I contacted Hifisim's support and had been told by Dave Opper that they had to do that: "Unfortunately due to mandatory required network efficiency updates and cost management, older products prior to AS2016 have been retired and online access to these products have had to be disabled" So I spent money for a product which partly doesn’t work anymore, although I paid for that server connectivity at the time of buying. It’s not because ASE is damaged somehow, it’s because of Hifisim's decision. That in mind I’ll think about it very conscientiously when considering buying a product of Hifisimtech in the future, a company giving their products about ten years full funktionality and cutting of a part afterwards in full awareness.
  3. For converting Textures from and to fs9: TextureManager You may convert to several file formats, resolutions and add or remove mipmaps. Mass conversions also possible.
  4. Maybe you'll find some answers here: converting-fsx-airport-scenery-for-fs9 konvertierunsbasteleien mit dem modelconverterx
  5. Just try FSUIPC for FS2004. It's free now. Or give a more detailed describtion (Manufacturer etc).
  6. Hi there, here's a link: https://fsmine.dhis.org/software/ Just scroll down...

    Hi, if you follow that link https://hifisimtech.com/downloads/#Legacy you'll be able to download the latest update (SP5, B709)
  8. It's not just against sound causing stutters but also against sound distortions Have a look here (guru3d) Windows: Line-Based vs. Message Signaled-Based Interrupts. MSI tool and here (RME) The answer to latency pops and clicks, improve latencies M.S.I. It worked for me!
  9. I think I found the reason accidentally. Experimented with the fs9.cfg-entry "CLOUD_COVERAGE_DENSITY" and, by the way, the grid like pattern of dense cirrus clouds disappeared the more the more I increased the value from 8 to 12
  10. Hello, I'm having exactly the same issue. Tried already several things - e.g. changing cirrus textures, - cld.bmp files, cloudmask.bmp files but no success. Yes, using Active Sky Evolution. Any ideas very appreciated.
  11. In event viewer I'm getting this error messages: - event id 1026, .net runtime Application: Envtex_FS9.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

  12. I'm totally with you - they're a pain in the a... Well installing 4.5 doesn't work. It tells that a newer version (4.8) is already installed.
  13. 😉 As I told.... found a lot of posts, like you, concerning that runtime error but nothing related to Envtex or people having the same probs running it. TOGA's telling .net 4.5 has to be installed. I'm having 4.8 which includes 4.5. I'll tell Google they should fix their search engine 😉
  14. Hello, today I've installed Envtex for fs9 (https://www.togaprojects.com/freewares). Installation ran fine but it doesn't start. Event viewer tells me event id 1026 - runtime error. Googled for it but nothing to find in that context. A lot of posts concerning that event id but nothing related to Envtex. Am I the only one with that prob? Tried to run it as an admin which also failed. Anyone had the same experience or better an advice what to do? Thanks
  15. ... just read and you'll see that stratus and cumulus clouds are gathered in one file - cumulus01
  16. Hi there, perhabs you're interested in reading this... https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/33353-interesting-clouds-findings/
  17. maybe this will help https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/555861-fs9-on-windows-7-starts-only-on-the-second-attempt/
  18. Recently stumbled across an atc modification called “FS9.1 ATC Modification”. It’s already mentioned and discussed in 2012 here in the FS2004 Forum, see https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/374310-how-do-i-edit-atc-instructions/ and on another webpage here http://calclassic.proboards.com/thread/4931 If you’re sometimes feeling mobbed and hoaxed by Fs9 atc, then you should give it a try. There’s just a little downside when you’re using the new atc.dll: You’ll lose position an size of your atc window in your saved flights and, if you don’t care, all instructions in atc window are in english. For size and position of the window there might be a work around for you by using “FlusiFix V6.5” but first start a flight, position and resize the window to your like and don’t close it, then save the flight (just for example named y). Go to your saved Flight Simulator Files and open the recently saved *.flt file with a text editor and search for a section called “[Air Traffic Control]”, below that section you’ll get the recently adjusted atc window data. Copy the section name and all data and create it via FlusiFix (section own functions) for all your desired *.flt files. Download of the modification available here https://www.mediafire.com/?68bgf92er8x5atf including some variations and a readme file.
  19. Yw Hm, sorry, i don't know. Try to ask the developer - see the link.
  20. Just have a look at this METAR information utility. https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/mweather.html Scroll down all the side for download You’ll get a quick overview of the recent weather conditions at many or all of your favourite airports. You may choose different download locations of METARs, also you’ll have the opportunity to load weather information of the past. Collect your favourite airports in a list, save and load them to get the METARs at an another time. Highly configurable. Decoded METARs, weather conditions and remarks, selection of different units, order and visibility of columns also possible. All for free. Just try around.
  21. FS2004\scenery\Eurw\scenery This folder contains all stock airports. The numbered bgl files (starting with AP....) may contain one or several stock airports. To figure out the right bgl file for the airport you're searching for you need a software, e.g AirportDesignEditor that'll show you this file after entering the ICAO code. With "AirportDesignEditor" you also can modify these airports. E.g. when opening an stock airport in AirportDesignEditor, the name of the bgl file in this scenery folder will be shown after entering the corresponding ICAO code. Don't save any changes to these stock airport files! Basically save them to another folder, e.g. FS2004\Addon Scenery\scenery or create a separate folder inside Addon Scenery and registrate it correctly to Fs9. There's no need to registrate bgl files inside the scenery folder. Fs9 will do this automatically at start up.
  22. Yes, because of this I've been astonished too. To me, especially the mentioned free software peaces are very user friendly, elaborated and are having a lot of useful functions. Had been searching for this a long time and finally found what I expected ;-)
  23. A nice site worth to explore: http://stuff4fs.com/open.asp?JS=TRUE by Don Grovestine Collection of freeware airports, aircraft re-paints, applications and utilities for Microsoft® Flight Simulator ("MSFS") and Lockheed Martin's Prepar 3D ("P3D") My favorites: TextureManager, batch processing to convert to and from a lot of texture formats, also resizing them and creating mipmaps. Easy to handle. Could be faster but top results. http://stuff4fs.com/newpage.asp?Folder=TM&Docs=TextureManager.pdf AI Flight Planner, many functions to validate, update, manage and process al lot of AI stuff. http://stuff4fs.com/newpage.asp?Folder=AIFP Don't forget to backup your files to be processed!
