  1. I do hope vectored thrust in all its forms will included.
  2. There is an excellent freeware Super Cub at .org with its own sound file. I popped the sound file into the Cub's Aircraft folder, and it sounded better, but wrong somehow. I then realised that it sounds wrong because the Cub never achieves its design RPM of 2475. I then opened the Cub in Planemaker and increased the "throttle available at max lever" parameter until 2475 was achieved. Bizarrely the number that works is 1.4, so there is something wrong in the engine or propeller modelling. However, the result of the above is a much nicer sound, and a livelier performance.
  3. Thanks, Andy, but that didn't make any difference. I think I'm going to have to do a clean install of everything.
  4. I installed version 1.52 using FTX Central 3 and now FTX England is completely broken. There are trees in the sea around the Isle of Wight, and random tiles, some with water, appear whilst fling over land. I've raised offiial requests with Orbx who told me to seek help from their forum. My post there has yielded no reponse. I would dearly like to uninstall the upgrade and reinstall the original version of FTS England, prior to SP5, which worked beautifully. Here is some text from an e-mail conversation with FSS, from whom I bought the product; I had hoped to be able to download my original purchase: "NOV 11, 2016 | 04:03PM EST Andres - The FlightSim Store replied: Hi Brian Unfortunately we do not have that option of updating files at FSS due to the privacy laws that ORBX have enforced.

I'd be very grateful if you would advise me how to proceed - I want the pre-update edition. Many thanks, Brian Sharpe" This despite the fact that Orbx said that this would be possible. So now I'm stuck with an expensive package which is totally unuseable. Any ideas?
  5. I have seen many references to incorrect matching between the VIEW and the SOUND being heard. Pressing Q twice to turn the sound off then back on is sometimes suggested as a cure. In my experience the only repeatble way to ensure that the SOUND is correct when the VIEW is changed is to press Q twice BEFORE changing the view (don't ask me why!). Would someone cleverer than me be able to write a script which sends a sequence of commands equivalent to Q,Q,S from the keyboard, either from a hotkey on the keyboard or from a joystick button?
  6. Aerodynamically correct stall and spin behaviour True thrust vectoring
  7. An inherent bug in FSX can cause the sound to become mis-matched to the view. This can be corrected by pressing Q twice, which switches the sound off then back on. I tried to automate this correction by allocating a button on my controller to emulate keyboard button S followed by Q twice. The code in the FSUIPC.ini file is as follows: 7=P0,7,K83,8 8=P0,7,K81,8 9=P0,7,K81,8 I checked the codes for the keyboard keys by letting FSUIPC choose them, and they agree with those published in the FSUIPC Advanced Manual. However, when I press the designated button #7, the simulator retracts the landing gear! I would appreciate any assistance! PS I forgot to say that neither button S nor button Q were emulated at all.
  8. Thanks, Jim. I've looked at the fixer and I think I'lljust turn off DX10 until I'm more familiar with Acceleration. I haven't noticed any improvements over DX9 as yet!
  9. I thought I'd try re-installing Acceleration. All good now, even with DTX10 enabled. Very strange. However, I did notice some flashing artifacts that weren't there pre=Acceleration.

  11. Oh dear! I recently installed FSX for the first time, and after setting bufferpools=0 consistently achieved 30fps locked to half refresh rate. Then the Acceleration pack arrived so I installed it straight away. Guess what? My fps halved! I double checked I didn't have DX10 enabled, then I ran fs9 on the same pc which still sat at a solid 30fps. So I uninstalled Acceleration, and the FSX fps stayed at half what it had been prior to installation. I then restored the system to pre-Acceleration status, and lo and behold - solid 30fps once more. I really want to use Acceleration. Any ideas anyone?
