    Terra Emergence Project for FSX/P3D

    Aime, I was al ready a fan of your textures and used your 'old' Generic Project Textures with yoy. Now, that I'm on FSX SE, I installed your Terra Emergence Project and am again very happy with it. Thank you! Tim van Ringen (aka Slowhand)

    Are We Still Among The Living?

    Hi, Try this link in your ProxyUser.ini. It uses Bing Maps.
  3. My friend and I like to join cockpits and followed the JoinFS manual by the letter. But after things are set, there's no Enter Cockpit button als the manual says, no matter what we do. We have flown together with JoinFS in seperate aircraft without any problem. We both use version 1.4.3. Who can help us out?

    All black (yet again)

    Hi Frank, This site is indeed not often visited. You're almost right there. Your cache folder shouldn't be empty. Cause if nothing is there, nothing is in it, what means no (black) textures. The airport is most likely your FS9 airport, but nothing more. I would check my cache line in ProxyUser.ini.

    Map Version update

    Very nice video.
  6. Now and then I visit this site, to see if there is some news. Nothing much. Are we dead or what?

    Problem with TileProxy

    Check the area with FlashEarth or Bing Maps, if good scenery is avalable at that location. Sometimes there ar some bad parts.

    TP slow to load

    It's clear now that my virusscanner (Panda) has impact on my tile loading. I made a testflight along the North coast of Spain and I had no blurries. :smile:

    TP slow to load

    Just made a flight (C217-80-knt) with the virusscanner program off, and it made a difference. There is hope...

    TP slow to load

    Hello Mick, My story is the same as yours. Years of fun with TP. But lately its my feeling the tiles download speed is slowing down. I wonder, with normal downloads, the download server determines the download speed. Can it be that the tileserver is throtteling back the download speed of the tiles? Just came to my mind... I didn't try it with my virusscanner off as is adviced. Still one attempt to go...

    How I solved MY OOM FSX problem

    The use of Memory Cleaner is not without risk. For example, today I activated MC before loading FSX. That was not good. FSX crashed after 1/2 hour flying. Even an instant restart of FSX failed. I suspect a memory conflict. I rebooted my system and made the same flight again without MC and all went well. I'm a Memory Cleaner user but only when needed. I activate it on the fly. So keep an eye on your RAM. MC does not influence your VAS in any way, only your RAM. My advice would be to only use MC when needed and after FSX is fully loaded. Never before. Good luck and blue skies.

    Get Rid of Snow & Rain Spray

    I like to fly small props and in this time of year FSX thinks that taxiways and runways are covered with meltwater. I was taxiing in a thick cloud of mist. Very anoying, at least for small aircraft. Reading this thread I was confused with all that hassle going on. There should be easier ways. I came up with two: Rename or Reduce. The responsable file is FSX/Effects/fx.WheelSnowSpray.fx. With this file you can do one of the following two things: Rename the fx file, for example to fx.WheelSnowSpray.fx.old. There will be no spray anymore. And you can always change back when needed. Reduce the spray. Open de fx file with Notepad, but backup first. Go to the [Emitter.0] header and change the Rate value in Rate=10.00, 20.00. Do the same under header [Emitter.1]. The spray is still there but is reduced now. This is what helped me and I hope it will help you too. Good luck and Blue Skies.
  13. Can't see any map services anymore. No Bing maps?

    Great Places to See TileProxy

    Picos de Europa, Spain. Take off at LEMR, fly 120 degrees and climb to 8500 feet. Once above the peaks, turn East and find your way true the mountains. When abeam LEXJ, turn North and land there. Its a great route to fly.
  15. SOLVED IT for Windows10-64bits! This is what I did (the sequence is important): See for details the forum postings above. Set my UAC to the lowest possible position. Disabled the LUA in my registry. Rebooted my system at this point. Again rebooted my system while holding the Shift key, and disabled the Driver Signature Enforcement. Opened the command (DOS) window as Admin. and changed the setting into Test Mode en also disabled the Integrity Checks. Rebooted again my system at this point. Only just now I installed TileProxy ( prevents driver signature issues). Then, in Windows Defender I added exeptions for the TileProxy, the TP Photoreal World and the TP cache maps. In the Firewall I added Proxyserver.exe and ServiceCacheBrowser.exe. After that I made a systemboot + holding F8, and disabled the Driver Signature Enforcement again. Started Tileproxy and 'voila', TileProxy works! Again in the command window I set the Test Mode to off, again rebooted + holding F8, thus ending the Test Mode, and again TileProxy works! So, you need the Test Mode only before you install TP. After the install you can set Test Mode off again. Only thing is, every time you want to fly TileProxy, you have to do a Boot + F8 and disable that hated Driver Signature Enforcement. Anyway, I can live with that and am a happy senior now... :smile:
