  1. Should be working again. stephenCTO & Co-Founder 12m Hi all. It should now be working again. Sorry for the long wait, we’ll investigate further what happened to avoid it happening again. Thank you for your patience! Stephen
  2. They continue to work on it. Android/iPad app not affected. stephenCTO & Co-Founder 14m I wrote the last update 23 minutes ago. We’re here. The issue is trickier to resolve than anticipated but we have a fix in testing now. The iPad/Android apps should not be affected however.
  3. web access not working, no charts, no simlink connection (USA). Per Navigraph forum they are aware and looking into the issue.
  4. Darn, tried again and CTD at map like before. I guess it was a fluke...
  5. I just tested it and putting a 'z' in front of the Drzewiecki Chicago Landmarks file and fired sim up from gate at KORD (FSDT) and no CTD. Going to test again to make sure it wasn't a fluke! Thanks!
  6. I did and there were no settings for the keyboard. I just added one (‘p’ for pause) just to test. Back in the sim during flight that p doesn’t work nor does escape or any other key. I mapped the menu command to a joystick button and now I don’t have to crash the plane to exit the flight. I will try removing all other joysticks and adding them after. Thanks.
  7. I am using a wired keyboard and have the same issue. Keyboard is not functional when sim is running.
  8. (Just to document in case others in the future have the same issue) I read that same thing somewhere and thought it might be the case, but the MSI MPG2390 doesn't appear to be set up that way. However after your previous post yesterday I dug out the MB manual and actually read it and there it was exactly as you said - I have two M.2 PCIe SSD's also installed on the MB and in that configuration the #5 and #6 are not available. In different configurations and different M.2 drives the ports that turn off vary (some config's turn off #2 and #5 and some turn off just #5 depending on what you have). Bottom line is read the MB manual... Thanks again.
  9. Resolved. I tried your suggestion of disconnecting the new SSD and just connected the old one and it didn't recognize any drives. So I connected the old drive using the same cables (and sata port) and it recognized the old drive. So not a SSD issue at all a port problem(?). In order to get both to be recognized I had to use a different sata port. #5 and #6 slots (both) don't work for some unknown reason. A new build so hard to believe faulty but who knows. Anyway they both are now working so thanks! I was about to give up and just buy another drive like Twenty6 suggested...
  10. I agree there is a lot out there on google but all of them address the issue when win 10 doesn’t recognize the drive and you have to go into device manager and add it. My issue is the bios does not recognize it at all. Shows nothing connected to the sata port on my motherboard when in fact it is connected properly. So as a result device manager in win 10 shows nothing.
  11. I have a Samsung 860 EVO 1TB storage SSD on my old rig (Windows 7) and wanted to transfer it to my new rig (Windows 10) as additional storage. At the same time I purchased an additional brand new 2TB SSD to add as well. The new 2TB drive was recognized by the bios and i added the drive as normal through the disk management tool. That worked flawless. However the old 1TB drive does not show up in the bios. I tried different cables, different sata ports, different power cable. Nothing. Thought maybe the drive went bad when I swapped it out so put it back in old PC and it works fine yet. I formatted the drive (quick format) on the old PC but no change. Bios on the new PC will not pick it up. Is this a Windows 7 to Windows 10 formatting issue? New PC bios issue (new SSD drive was picked up right away though). Any ideas?
  12. That needs to be promoted to an official FSX tip. Hook I agree, never knew that. Very cool tip!! Jon Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk HD
  13. I was eagerly awaiting the official news of the iPad mini this week and was very interested in purchasing. However after seeing the features and $329 price it was a serious let-down. The $329 Wi-Fi only model does not even have a GPS http://news.cnet.com...imilar-tablets/ . While I am sure it is a good tablet, I think there are better options in the 7" form out there for less money. I am going to get the Nexus 7 which is still the leader in 7" form factor in my opinion. Rumors are they are releasing a 32GB Nexus 7 next Monday for $249. We will see. If you don't need the smaller 7" form, keep what you have in the IPad2, it is still a very good tablet.
  14. For me, I use them both (FSX and Flight). Pre- MS Flight launch, I hadn't touched FSX for many months, I had totally lost interest in the flight simulation genre. Once MS Flight came out I was back in the game and loving Flight. Over the last month or so, I have started to get bored and impatient - looking for more Flight content that interests me. Since there was nothing, I turned back to FSX and loved it (again). Purchased some ORBX (never used that in the past) and started running FS Captain with short PNW cargo/pax assignments (don't care for airliners personally) and it is/was absolutely great. Even with that, I still enjoy coming back to MS Flight for all the reasons listed by everyone in this and other threads. Once Alaska comes out, I will probably be spending my time more with Flight for a few months and then probably go back to FSX while I wait for something more. So for those that are new to this simulation world, get them both, be prepared to spend some money on them both and use them both! You won't regret it. Jon
  15. Greetings,In reading most if not all the Flight Forum posts here over the past few weeks, it seems that by far the majority of users are getting good to very good performance out of their rigs with Flight. Unfortunately, I am not. I knew I was going to have some trouble since a warning comes up that my video card does not meet required specs (which it doesn't). That part was clear, but what is confusing to me is what video card should I upgrade to? and will it make a significant difference? My goal, obviously is to get the frame rates and performance that most are talking about here. My concerns are, is my system good enough to handle a newer faster video card? Anything I should be concerned about (power supply, compatibility issues with all other software, etc). If I upgrade the video card will my FSX set-up (took a year to configure it correctly) be negatively impacted?My performance in Flight on medium settings (some even on high) for the free base software seemed fine, but with the Hawaii adventure pack and new plane, I am seeing some significant reduciton in frame rates which would be expected with more detailed cockpit and more scenery. Fraps says 15 tops and down to 6-7 densely populated areas for frame rates. Any thoughts would be appreciated on the video card upgrade or any other advice on improving performance. I want to get this up and running before Alaska is released.
