  1. When I turn the runway turn off lights on and off nothing happens. When I turn on the taxi lights the runway turn off lights turn on As well. Any thoughts? thanks christopher porter
  2. So I’m lined up on a runway and look at my inboard display which shows I am in fact on it but that the runway heading is off 3-5 degrees. I get this all the time. Anyone have this problem? thanks, Chris Porter

  4. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any flight charts for CYWG. The only ones I can find online are from Back before 2008. The airport I have i downloaded a short time back for fs9 and the charts and airport diagram I have for the airport don’t match up very well at all. As of now I am using a screenshot from Google Earth of the airport for taxi purposes. I just did a flight into the airport yesterday for runway 18 and the approach givenOn the chart I have and from my FMC help me coming in at an angle. Anyways, if anybody can provide some new charts I would appreciate it. Thanks Chris chrisporter41@gmail.com

  6. lets say that i get a new computer, i've made a backup as shown here, then copied and pasted the backup onto the new computer. I get that all the payware programs and sceneries would need to be re-installed but in that copy and paste of my backup all my payware programs are pasted as well. I imagine that the payware programs pasted wont just work (as has said here in the forumn) and that i would need to a re-install of that payware. Now, If i re-install the payware, are there conflicts and if so, will i get the option to merge folders, being able to "dont copy" same name files? The reason i ask is that i have made changes/modifications to just about all my payware sceneries and programs. Also, is it strange that my fs9.cfg is located in C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FS9? I noticed my scenery cfg is there as well as my aircraft folder. If so when I copy and paste into a new computer, should i paste cfg into the same place (C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft/FS9) or in C:\Flight Simulator 9 folder where i thought it was supposed to be in? thanks, Chris.
  7. I think my computers beyond updates at this point as its been over 5-6 years since i last had my computer on (up until a month ago when i started it back up). I can't even get the internet back up and i remember shortly before shutting it down (i needed to concentrate on my schooling) i did one security update and the sim stopped working. I had to delete the update to get it to work. Anyhow, this is where i am at unfortunately. But, i'll save up for two years, hoping my computer lasts that long, and spend the money on something really good, probably have a friend build me one. Who knows, after 2 years all the other platforms out there will have some or most of the bugs resolved, particularly with fs2020. I havn't heard of sim-outhouse.com, I'll have to check it out. Thanks again all Chris
  8. I do experience occasional freezes, not due to the cold temperatures up here lol (oye, it just snowed the other day, I’m not ready for the cold) which I think are due to too much going on at one time and my computer not being able to handle the load. I’m guessing a processor problem? It is extremely frustrating when it happens particularly as I Spend a lot of time planning my flights amd going through the proper procedures and checklists and all (it can take upwards to an hour before I am lifting off from the departure runway). This aspect is stressful and there is a big relief when end a flight at the gate with fspassengers ( I record my flights and get satisfaction following them with my maps). i have seen what you are talking about. I am directed to a site by a search for a scenery and get the message that it no longer exists. Found that a lot the last couple days when looking for airport scenery.
  9. Thanks much Tony and Robin, you brought up some very good points. Yesterday i visited some payware sites and youtube to take a better look at some of the other sims and was quite impressed. Look forward to that day when I can up on a computer that will support well those other platforms. Until then, FS2004. I get a thrill when flying and enjoying my latest round of airport hops accross the US. Chris
  10. Thanks for that info, it’ll be helpful in the future when, lol, my wife let’s me purchase another computer. She just clarified the other day that it will not happen until my computer breaks down before we spend that kind of money). When that time does come I do look forward to adding fsx or P3D though I think I will still use fs9 as I have around 30+ payware airports (all of which I have added all kinds of additional scenery to: tugs, static aircraft, etc) and programs I have purchased and use (PMDG 737, fs2Crew, fspassengers, RadarContact). With fs2020 out there now I’ll have a lot more research to do when that time comes. I just hate how when you spend so much time and money on one simulator something else comes along. I think it is like you said, with newer simulators you take a couple steps back but then you also take steps forward.
  11. Mine is: windows 7 Processor- intel(R) pentium cpu g3250@3.20GHz 3.20 GHz 8.0 GB ram installed 64-bit operating system not sure how good or bad that all is
  12. Seems to go ok, Computer does crash from time to time but usually only mid flight; occasionally at a payware airport which is why I keep ai around 7 percent and clouds at few (Nothing worse than a computer crash mid flight or while tax’iing to a gate at the end of a flight). Of course my computer is 10 years old and not top of the line.
  13. Altogether I have 140 sceneries including default. Mostly United States airports that I have many which are payware. I’ve added a lot of extra scenery to all those airports so the files are a bit bigger. Problem Is many of the airports have Scenery from other airports (tugs, aircraft, cones etc-borrowed scenery, not distributed) and have to be activated. Ideally I’d like to keep it all active but if bad performance would be an issue I’d like to avoid it.
  14. Maybe I’m just looking in the wrong place but I can’t seem to find an answer to this. My question is, is it OK to have all my addon sceneries/airports activated in the scenery library? Will I see a performance hit by having it all activated? thanks Chris
  15. Oye, I somehow had that flipped in my head. Thanks
