  1. This happened to me also, but after reinstalling the NG the cold/dark startup worked perfectly. (I reinstalled several addons after having to replace my OS drive).
  2. Support ticket replied to quickly by Flight One with links to downloads.
  3. Yes I'm looking for the Flight One version. I simply can't use my existing setup.exe. It requires a license file created by the primary installer , or "wrapper". I lost that file when my OS drive crashed (the lic file was probably created in the Windows folder). If I run the existing .exe, it will install the aircraft, but when I try and select it from within FS it will lock up the pc and I'll have to reboot and uninstall it. Ah well, lesson learned. Always back-up.
  4. I don't think that's the way it works at Flight1. My order details are listed in my account, but no download links. Instead you just go to the product page, download as if you're buying, then when installing select "reinstall". My problem is that the aircraft is nowhere to be found on their site or anywhere else. Strange, considering it's one of the best GA aircraft of all time.
  5. Recently reinstalled Windows 7 and FS9, own the Flight1 172R for both FS9 and FSX but can't find either one anywhere online. It's like they never existed. The only one I had backed up was the FS9 version of the unwrapped setup.exe but it's useless without my lost .lic file. I need to download the wrapper version and can't find it anywhere. I've been away from simming for a couple of years. Did I miss something in that time? Is there a known reason the aircraft has been pulled (if that's what happened)?
  6. Hi, I found the 9.1 version and it works fine. And so far it seems I didn't need to reinstall FS9 at all,. Once I ran the sim, the missing folders and files were created.
  7. Thanks for the reply Jim. Yes the OS is on it's own drive as well. I installed a fresh copy on a third drive (this drive contains all my other games). I can't get FS9 to even launch now, same as you described. I haven't started the sim in about 2 years, even before the hard drive crash, I don't know if that makes a difference. I also still have no FS9 registry entry, even after running the Flight1 repair tool. I'll try the no-CD patch if I can find it. Update: the no-cd file works. Looks good so far.
  8. It's been years since I did anything with FS9 files so I'm unsure about this process . . . . I have FS (and all addons) on it's own drive, but my OS drive died and I lost files that default to My Documents and C:\Users. My entire FS installation is good except for those ^ missing files. If I install a fresh FS9 in a new location (a third drive) those files currently missing should get placed in the above locations. Does that sound right? Am I missing anything? (Windows 7)
  9. Hi Joe, that's not the cause in my case. I'm starting new fights every time I fly. And if the previous flight was with an addon plane then I start my next flight with the default C182. Edit: Started a flight today and now it's normal.
  10. The main panel on my DF 727 has begun loading in the upper half of the screen only, so I have to drag and resize it every flight. Anyone else have this happen?
  11. Loaded the Duke and all was good for about a minute, then there was a blip in the terrain textures as if something major had just occured, and immediately lost my click spots. I shut down, and let FSX create a new fsx.cfg, so far so good. Doing a flight now, thunderstorms, good framerates, smooth, no issues with clicks.
  12. Thanks for the info! It says to try "reload aircraft" so I'll do that next time I fly. Hopefully it's not a conflict with EZdok.
  13. Hi Ryan, started with the default cessna and switched to the Duke. I'm about 90% sure this started after I had the aircraft loaded in my last FSX session, but like I said that was weeks ago so I'm not 100% sure.
  14. I suddenly have no click spots anywhere. No switches, knobs etc respond to mouse clicks. No + / - pop ups, just dead. The aircraft is otherwise totally responsive, i.e. animations, flight controls, etc. I haven't run FSX in a few weeks, been running FS9 lately, but I'm almost certain this happened during my last Duke preflight and when I started FSX today the problem is still there.
  15. Worth repeating: outside Program Files. I also like to have Windows on one drive, and games on their own separate drive, but the main thing is don't place games in the Program Files folder. It's also widely recommended to install complex addons as Administrator (right click the file and select "run as Administrator"). And of course don't forget to d'load and install the FS2004 v9.1 update. Yes, no problem. Sure, your Windows 7 disk will format multiple drives. I'm running three drives, each with multiple partitions, all created during Windows 7 installation.
  16. I'm looking for a grey flightdeck for the super 80. Couldn't find anything in the file library.
  17. Just reinstalled FS9 this weekend. Soaring along beautifully locked and steady at 60 fps in my DF727, iFly 737 and PMDG 737. Ultimate Traffic at 90%. I have no real complaints about FSX, I just wasn't enjoying simming. Firing up FS9 was like coming home after a long journey. That is, a long journey at 18 frames per second.
  18. Lots of great info there, thanks Ron. I had fs9 uninstalled for several years, flying FSX, and decided to get back into fs9. My backup of fsuipc 3.5 was not recognizing the old registration info so I tried version 4 which of course I soon learned is for FSX. Finally got version 3 registered, all is good now.
  19. Thanks for posting this! I purchased the iFly 737 years ago and I'm in the process of reinstalling FS9 now after flying FSX since it was released. Looking forward to this update, it sounds like a major update.
  20. When I install v4.x the modules tab does not appear in the FS9 menu bar. Edit: Ah, nevermind, I see now at simMarket that v3 is listed under FS2004, and v4 is under FSX.
  21. You can forget about those benchmarks when FS is concerned. The actual performance difference is likely about 0.5 fps. Hardly worth $50. You can see plenty of youtube videos that look amazing with gtx 470 cards. I'd say the most important feature would be amount of memory. Both the 470 and 480 should be around 1200 to1500 mb. And you can still find NEW ones ;) http://www.pricewatch.com/gallery/video_cards/geforce_gtx_480
  22. Strangely I only noticed the rapid sunset just in the last couple of weeks. Never noticed this before.
  23. I'll check out those NGX effects, thanks Dan. The effects I have a hard time setting are the ones without the preview window, lol. The random "head bobble" effect is easy enough. What I'm trying to really capture is the lag and sway from banking, braking, acceleration, etc.
  24. Setting up camera views is about as easy as it possibly could be. What I think is sorely needed are two basic sets of effects files: one set for heavies and one for GA. I'd be 100% good to go with just those.
