  1. I am wondering if anyone would so graciously assist me in optimizing my FSX installation graphic settings with my new system taking into consideration the use of DX10 Fixer 3.4 and Nvidia inspector. I've followed the DX10 Fixer How To Guide, but am not comfortable with my understanding of it. My System: Summary Operating System Windows 10 Home 64-bit CPU Intel Core i7 @ 4.00GHz 30 °C Coffee Lake 14nm Technology RAM 16.0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1069MHz (15-15-15-36) Motherboard ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.

  2. My apologies if this is an odd question, but I hope someone is able to help me. I'm not very knowledgeable of views , camera angles etc in basic FSX operation. I am struggling to find a decent Twin Otter cockpit panel layout that I can refer to take measurements from and scale as I work towards replicating the cockpit physically. I have been playing around with taking measurements from within FSX's Aersooft Twin Otter Extended aircraft using a software tool called "Meazure". For the most part, I felt OK with this less than accurate method. What I am finding, is that the default views and basic means of looking around the cockpit typically show panels in a somewhat perspective view, so a rectacular panel may show on the screen as trapezoidal. It is difficult to get acurate measurements when the view is askew. Is there a means, that I can set a standard zoom level (.89 seems best) and when choosing to look at a panel, view it staright on? I hope I've explained myself OK. If not, and you think you might know what I'm trying to ask but need more clarification, please ask!

    What Is My Current Zoom Factor

    Thank you!
  4. Is there a means in FSX to display the current zoom factor of the display? Control-Z gives me a wealth of information, but not the one piece I need.
  5. I am new to Linda, and using what resources I can find to self teach myself the intricacies of this application. Right now, I am at a point of simply assigning FSX default aircraft commands to my Saitek Yoke and Throttle controls (using the MS FSX Default aircrafts module that came with LINDA). I am trying to find how to assign a PTT button. On press it would be to initiate broadcast, and on release that same button would disconnect. Is anyone able to provide me some direction?

    New User - LINDA Installation & Setup

    Thank you Andrew. All is good now. It appears I had been using an outdated FSUIPC. So, for clarification of question #2, are you suggesting I get rid of the keyboard and mouse references in the standard.xml file in addition to the joystick references (explicitly advised in the manual)?
  7. I have discovered that LINDA can offer me great flexibility in controls for my aircraft when combined with FSUIPC. I've got all the prerequisites and have been following 'brian747's excellent beginner's manual as I plunge into this new adventure. I have come across a few questions in the initial aspects that I haven't esily found answers to ... 1) General question ... is LINDA meant to run along with FSX? ie when FSX is running so is LINDA (the .exe) 2) Installation preparation question ... in brian747's document it states "the Linda manual also suggests editing the standard .xml file to remove all exisiting assignments". To clarify. this is just joystick assignments ... not keyboard / mouse assignments that precede the hardware assignments in the standard.xml file. They should remain in the file and saved only after edits to the joystick section(s) as illustrated in the Linda manual? 3) Setup question - do I need to be running FSX while I install and configure LINDA? I am receiveing indication from LINDA that their is action required in my Flt Sim / FSUIPC configs. I am being advised that "Flt Sim or FSUIPC not running" and that I should "Check FSUIPC version". I have executed LINDA in both states, with FSX running and FSX not running. I get these messages in both cases. What must I do to overcome this? brian747's manual doesn't appear to mention whether FSX should or shouldn't be running (I'm assuming not) nor how to deal with Flt Sim / FSUIPC config deficiencies. Thank you all in advance!
  8. Thanks Steve ... I will assume the xml file is part of an older NVI and newer versions don't rely onit anymore. I will assume things are working without it!
  9. Hi Steve, yes ... I realize that, but I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about Nvidia Inspector and it's file CustomSettingNames_en-EN.xml. The question really doesn't fit into your DX10 Fixer forum or Adam's document (other than making reference to it). I would have posted this question in an Nvidia Inspector forum, but none exist. I thought maybe since Nvidia Inspector is a useful tool for FSX that maybe users of your software may have had experience with it.
  10. I have no idea where to post a question like this ... There is a pretty thorough "How-To" document available that in conjunction with The DX10 Scenery Fixer will allow a user to optimize their DX10 setup in FSX. It recommends following the guide closely. It has been a few years since it's been updated, and some references are may no longer be accurate. In section 3, Setting Up Nvidia Inspector, it is highlighted quite clearly: "Very important: make sure that Inspector.exe and CustomSettingNames_en-EN.xml are both in the same folder - or NVI will not work." I have Inspector.exe, but I cannot find CustomSettingNames_en-EN.xml. Where would I find this file? If found, would I move it to where Inspector.exe is? I'm using the latest release(?) of Inspector, 1.9.7.8. Perhaps it doesn't rely on CustomSettingNames_en-EN.xml any longer?
  11. Thank you for clearing that up for me ...
  12. I am having a peek at my FSX.cfg file and have noticed I have two DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti entries. One is near the top of the file ... [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti.0] Mode=5760x1080x32 Anisotropic=1 AntiAlias=1 and the second at the end of the file ... [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti.0.0] AntiAlias=1 The differences are higlighted. Is this normal and acceptable? Or can I expect problems?
  13. I have been using Steve's DX10 Scenery Fixer since is was released as a paid addon. Such a great investment! But I sometimes wonder if I've got things optimized. I find myself perplexed with understanding how to determine the best DX10 Anti Aliasing setting? It's a pretty open and generic question, but would someone be able to help me determine the best setting? I don't quite understand the selection based on DX9. (I don't know what the setting was in DX9?) I have an Nvidia GeForce 660ti graphics card with driver 388.13. I am using Nvidia Inspector 1.9.7.8. and DX10 Fixer 3.3. Thank you all in advance!
  14. Thank you Mark for the quick and very simple solution!
