  1. Yes, it should be there. If I remember correctly, the key assignments are in fs9.cfg (at or near the bottom of the listing) I use a search engine called 'Everything' from www.voidtools.com This is a very quick desktop search engine that finds whatever you are looking for, as you type.
  2. That will be in 'My Documents' folder.
  3. No! Windows Mode is Alt-Enter (Alt key & Enter key at the same time)
  4. No problems at all, running FS2004 on Windows 10 & Windows 11. To INSTALL FS2004 to your new Windows 10 or 11 PC 1. Install into C:\ NOT into it's default C:\Program Files 2. Install the 9.1 updatel 3. Install the 9.1 nocd patch 4. Right-click the FS9.exe, select Properties 5. Select Compatibility mode, & select XP 6. At bottom, then select 'Run as Administrator' 7. Double click the desktop icon
  5. Me neither. No adds at all, with my updated Windows 11.
  6. I just cannot 'hate' any operating system. Obviously, an older operating system is not optimized for modern & updated operating systems. So, a new PC might have issues running an older operating system. It may be a problem finding drivers. Waiting for the 'next best thing' is also a pointless exercise. It's a never ending search for the holy grail. I'm using Windows 11 on a Ryzen 7 laptop, with 16GB ram & an SSD, & I'm finding that my sims are running a lot smoother than when I was using an older obsolete operating system.
  7. You also posted at Flightsim. I agree with Ray. Make sure that your Windows screen resolution is the same as the sim's screen resolution. It you are running Windows 10, follow the tips in the 1st post of the Flightsim FS2004 forum. That should do it. Kind Regards, Robin
  8. Sorted, Just updated without updated.. Did that later once all worked.
  9. I did an update on my existing Windows 11 on Thursday morning, and now have the following issues..No Taskbar, or Start button. Just an empty white strip, with that little up arrow that indicates startup stuff.Default desktop picture, with only a few icons.Windows key + I (to get to Settings) not working. Settings flashes on for a few seconds, then banishes.My hard drive shows the correct free space, but my music, pics & video folders are empty.Edge reverting to initial Edge setup on reboot.So, I rolled back a few days, and Uninstalled the latest update, as well as checking file integrity etc.. Nothing..I even tried the Windows Media tool.. It flashes, then also dissappears.I tried to reinstall the media update from a USB, it finally worked, it did its thing, went through the installation process, then said 'Undoing changes to your PC', rebooted, and now I'm back to no Taskbar etc..Any ideas? Maybe use the ISO?
  10. Not forgetting that it is still VERY well supported by some amazing freeware developers..
  11. A very interesting chat.. It's a matter of Realism vs Immersion, in my humble opinion. In our simulator that we've built, we see real pilots brace themselves in their seats when anticipating touchdown, such is the immersion of the sim, be it any of the flight models that we have loaded, especially watching a genuine Boeing pilot practicing a landing at Luton in the UK & anticipating a landing. BTW, this is using FS2004 on a Celeron, with freeware scenery & aircraft - such is the immersion factor. Just saying!
  12. True.. Not everyone wants 'high quality' add-ons... Thats actually a perception by the buyer/user/gamer, Also, instead of complaining, why not learn to create better aircraft? Which brings up the point that.... MSFS is still just a game that simulates a simulator.. (I'm sure that puts the cat amongst the pigeons! & NO, not a debate as to what defines a sim or a game) So, do your homework, & also support the freeware developers as well, they are actually the backbone of our hobby! - Many have become pay-ware developers, thanks to support that they have been given
  13. Great, Thanks so much for taking the time to explain to me. I've been a Misty fan since FS2004, & have Misty & most, if not all the bits, in a separate FS Alaska install.. Now to get P3Dv4.5 going with RTMM
  14. Ahhh! I just got a bit confused for a moment. So I have TFX, & RTMM Master for P3Dv4 (I dont have v5) & I'll be installing them 'old school' manually, not via .XML I'm happier with that. So I dont need those 40 Textures then? Oops, I think I'm confusing myself.. So I had downloaded the RTMM Master Scenery Pack, only now am I downloading the RTMM Add-on for P3Dv4.. I'll be good to go then? Nothing else needed?
