    Retreaded - Retired - Licensed Aircraft and Helicopter Mech Bald Headed - Bean Bag Belly - luvinitallonedayatatime !!! - My Computer - AMD Phenom2 X 4 3.3ghz - Win 7 64bit - 8gig Ram - Gtx 760 2gb - 1tb int sata - .5tb int sata - 1tb ext Usb
  1. I Hear You, I tried the upgrade, when it was available. Didn't last long, about 48 hours, Win 10 Destroyed My FPS, and no amount of tuning would Help ! Maybe if it was a clean install, not an upgrade, it may have worked ?? I'm thinking My next Computer Build will probably be win 10. I am thinking it is either a Registry problem :((( or I am downloading a corrupt file when I Do a Re Install :/// ? It would be hard to believe that I am the only one that has ever had this problem ?? Thanks for Answering My post ! - Johnman
  2. I might add, that I am running Win 7 64bit ! - Johnman
  3. I have been Running FSX and FSX SE side by side on the same Harddrive on 2 Computers for a long time, With No Problem . After a Hardrive Problem, requiring a reInstlall, I find that FSX SE will Not create the App Data Files Properly ? FSX-SE does create a FSX file in both App Data Roaming and Local. but will NOT open a FSX SE file ? FSX and FSX SE will both run Seemingly normal, but are operating out of the same FSX file in the Appdata Folder ? When I Completly Uninstall FSX, and run only FSX SE, FSX SE will continue to create the FSX Entries, but will NOT create a FSX SE entry in the App Data Folder ?? I suspect a Registry Error, but have NO Idea how to find it ?? HAAAAAAALPP !! - Johnman

    Aircraft load below ground

    Usually a Problem of this Nature would have to do with Contact Points, However in Your case, I Don't think this is what it is ?? Have You tried to delete the FSX.cfg File and let it rebuild on Start Up ?? - Johnman B)
  8. For Some time now I have been turning OFF My virus Scan, when ever I do an Install, or Download, Saves a Lot of Aggravation, Just Don't Forget to turn it Back ON !! - Johnman B)

    Hey Alex, I stopped Drinking the Koolaid at v 2.5, and went back to v1.4, and I am satisfied . Works Really well, sort of Like FSX on Steroids, back too Fun Simming again ! All My FSX, and most of My FS9 Airplanes Work, The Free Stuff !! And I'm not Paying $75 Bucks for an Airplane !! Runs Smooth, and with My Poor Old Wore Out Computer, I'm Getting 25 - 30 fps !! I may Upgrade Again Someday, But I'm Set for Now !! - Johnman B) Specs : AMD Phenom 2 850 X 4 @ 3.,3 ghz GT 730 2gb Ram 8 gb Ram OB 2ea TB DRives

    HELP! SOS!

    A. AMD Processor ( N.G. ) B. AMD Video ( N.G. ) C. Laptop computer ( N.G. ), D. 4 gig Ram ( Way Low ) E. Ram is Probably Shared By Video Card, and is Probably Why You are Getting the Error Message ( N.G. ) F. Processor Speed Slow ( N.G. ) . If You are Serious about Running P3D, You need to "Way" Up Grade Your Computer ( Check the Min Specs ) . When Upgrading, Pay Special Attention to Processor Speed, the faster the Processor, The Better it will run P3D ! Also, Defiantly go with an Intel ( Quad Core ) 4ghz Chip, or Better ! AMD anythings, really don't Cut it !! I am Looking forward to Replacing My AMD machine with at least an Intel i5 Quad Core 4 ghz Chip ! Its not that I Don't like AMD, I Own One, But They Seriously Under Perform, compared to Intel ! - And the Good News is ---------?? - Johnman B)

  15. I think that the Simmers that Really Need the Super Detail, Step by Step, Just like the Real Planes, and want to spend $70 to $100 Dollars for them, Great. I also think that Developers should also offer the same Aircraft in a Much Simpler Detail and Complexity, and a Considerably Lower Price, for us Low and Slow, Low budget Hobby Fun Flyers ! Remember all the Freeware available for FSX ?? How often do You get close enough to an Airplane to Count the Rivets, and Who's looking at the Airplane anyhow ?? - Johnman B)
