  1. Oddly enough, just did around an hour flight in the Aerosoft Airbus and it went fine, now nothing. Sitting at the gate for two minutes in the NGX, after two minutes and putting the irs to align, nothing. FSUIPC still picks up the fact that I have a throttle. But no joystick.
  2. Okay, wondering if you lot could help me here, seein' as how I'm at the end of the rope. I've tried just about every suggestion there is, short of going back to Windows 7, which is not an option for me. Heres the long and the short of it. When I start up FSX my joystick runs fine, as soon as I try to load into anything of detail I.E. the A3xx Series by Aerosoft, or the PMDG 737 after about around 2 minutes my joystick stops connecting to FSX...Mind you, it's still lit up and functioning via the control panel that Saitek provides, but it just won't work in FSX. I never had this issue when I used my xbox controller for flight. Weird thing is, when I go into my FSUIPC.ini the line [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=No 0=Saitek Pro Flight X-55 Rhino Stick 0.GUID={C1C6E540-B6B9-11E4-8001-444553540000} 1=Saitek Pro Flight X-55 Rhino Throttle 1.GUID={C1C73360-B6B9-11E4-8003-444553540000} is present for now, but if after I load into the NGX, and close out of flightsim, the ini deletes that line all together. I'm running Windows 8.1, and the X-55 Rhino. I've tried turning off the option that shuts USB ports off in favor of power saving, and I've installed the latest drivers. Anybody got any suggestions? Little side note before I forget, my joystick works fine in X-Plane 10. I hope someone has an answer here, because I know I didn't just spend 200 on a new joystick just to have it not work in my main flightsim.

    FlyToronto is out

    I guess I'll just add to the numbers here, but just putting it out there that, eve after un-selecting a lot of things in the config manager, installing the 'lite' texture pack, I still do not get the performance that I get at Dubai, or even FSDT's LAX, or DFW, which all three are bigger, and more complex then Toronto. I'm not necessarily disappointing over all, I really wasn't expecting the best performance from a scenery that comes with a 'lite texture pack'...But I was expecting at least Dubai's optimization...They just packed too much into this airport, which is nice for screenshots and all, not so great when I actually want to do flights into / out of the airport.

    Scenery Library order

    Is your FSDT ORD ontop of absolutely everything? Also, have you made any tweaks to your FSX.CFG? If so, what ones?

    are the 200ER and 300 will be all in one ?

    It seems like it would be logical to not buy something if you don't have the money for it...May just be me..

    are the 200ER and 300 will be all in one ?

    "Over the next few months we intend to expand your 777 fleet by adding the 777-300ER, the 777-200ER and possibly a few others. With each expansion will come a completely new set of challenges and quirks to keep you entertained as you learn the differences between the handling techniques required for each airframe type."

    Well...This topic escalated quickly. Let me leave it on this note. If you like it...Buy it...If you don't...Well...Don't...Seems too simple to me.
