  1. Here's what a Google search brought up; https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-client/deployment/event-10-is-logged-in-application-log. The article says you can ignore it, but gives a solution to stop the messages. Another article says it is caused by some root worms, but that is from Vista days. Would suggest putting the whole message in Google and doing a search to find the various messages from others regarding it if you haven't already found a solution.
  2. It wouldn't be all that hard to open the default FSX aircraft traffic file in AIFP and just substitute the liveries that you want to use for the default ones. For example the FSX traffic file reuses the same three A321 liveries for seven flight plans. Substituting your own liveries would enable you to have different ones for each of the seven flight plans, giving you more airlines. Also, you wouldn't need to alter any aircraft.cfg files since ATC would be looking at your substitute aircraft.
  3. I have Orbx, REX, Active Sky, etc., but quit chasing perfection after I realized that my enjoyment came from flying the aircraft and not viewing the scenery. With FSX I think this is the approach you have to consider because it's never going to compete graphically with MSFS.
  4. I too use Simstarter NG, but also use SceneryConfigEd for quick adds, moving scenery order, etc. During beta it was the goal to maintain complete compatibility with SCE, since Capt. Pero was also a fan.
  5. Scenery Config Editor on Source Forge.
  6. Are you using a specific 3rd party AI program, such as Traffic Global, etc.? MyTraffic X requires an entry in scenery.cfg, but it's added during installation. There may be others. In my case I'm using AIG flight plans and have them in a non-standard location, so I had to add the path to the scenery.cfg file.
  7. If you are using the default FSX AI and haven't deleted anything then there isn't another location. However, if you're talking about third party AI, then you might need to add the SimObjects folder containing the aircraft to FSX.cfg, which is in AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/FSX.
  8. Unfortunately, the author decided to pull the FSX version of SIMstarter NG from the marketplace, so it is no longer available. Sad because it's a great tool.
  9. Just remember if you do, you're going to have to repurchase any aircraft and scenery and I'm not sure if PMDG offers a FSX to P3D upgrade pricing..
  10. Here's the AIG manual install tutorial I wrote for FSX if you can't find yours; https://www.alpha-india.net/forums/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=30325.0;attach=65422
  11. Another frame eater is AI aircraft. Also, having shadows on tends to cause FPS drops.
  12. Excellent. Glad you found something that fills your need.
  13. In the FSX/Scenery/World/scenery folder rename the file trafficAircraft.bgl to trafficAircraft.bgl.off, or other suffix of your choosing. No more default traffic, but that also eliminates GA traffic. Unfortunately, you can't lose one without the other. Well not without using something like AI Flight Planner to modify the trafficAircraft.bgl file.
  14. https://www.alpha-india.net/forums/index.php?topic=28686.0 and https://www.alpha-india.net/forums/index.php?topic=30325.0 As I mentioned in a previous message, manual installs are not easy. AI Manager helps, but there is a ton of work placed on the user if used in FSX, like hours and hours. If you're not prepared for that type of commitment do yourself a favor and put out the cash for something you can live with. Good luck, Ernie
  15. IMHO, currently the most realistic AI is the Alpha-India stuff. However, the installation package is designed primarily for P3D. It is usable in FSX, but the manual installation process can prove extremely frustrating. 🙂
  16. Isn't Traffic 2005 designed for FS2004? Your best bet with a program that old is to hit the Just Flight forum; https://community.justflight.com

  18. Hi, You can PM me, but it's been a while since I've done it, so I'll have to review my document. I'll also need to take a look at the new file formats to see what's changed. Mostly it involves manually unzipping the repaint to the aircraft folder then manually editing the aircraft.cfg. Ernie
  19. I did a tutorial last year on using AIG with FSX, but it's not an easy process. In fact If I had to do it over again I'm not so sure that I would. https://www.alpha-india.net/forums/index.php?topic=30325.0 BTW, I don't currently have FSX installed and the document hasn't been updated, so not sure how useful it still is. Ernie
  20. I guess it depends on if the extra aircraft and airports are of interest to you. As for me, I'll go Deluxe for the Aerobat, and C172 analog. The premium, not so much. Really no interest in any of the extra aircraft and while Denver and San Francisco are of interest to me, I would rather wait for the Flightbeam versions of them. Ernie
  21. Thanks, I'm sure that I can find some. Just moved to a smaller place and need to downsize. Already had to rethink my flight sim setup. Paperwork was next.
  22. Because I like referring to paper rather than digital I printed the documentation for the jet aircraft that I own for FSX. With the introduction of the new MSFS I pitched most, but I've been reluctant to toss the iFly and Majestic docs. I guess that I'm hoping that both companies will eventually release an updated version of their aircraft. I really like those two variations, but I may end up with PMDG as my only choice. Ernie
  23. Fair enough, but his question wasn't about which simulator you would recommend, but what the difference was between FSX Deluxe and the Gold edition and could have been answered without the need to mention non FSX simulators, which was the point of my response..
  24. Please fellow simmers, I would ask that you respect that this is a FSX forum and answer the original poster's question without editorializing about other flight simulators.
  25. To start a flight plan, regardless of where your aircraft is currently sitting; 1) You can right click on any airport icon and select set departure/destination. or 2) You can Click on the 'Search->Airports' tab. Key in a Airport code, name, city, etc. Right click an airport in the results list and select 'Set Flight Plan Departure' or 'Set Flight Plan Destination'. Clear the search criteria and do it again for the other airport. Once selected; Click on the 'Flight Planning -> Flight Plan' tab and the airports will appear in the list. You can then right click on the airports in the flight plan, or on the map to set procedures, etc. You can also do either of the above with Navaids, waypoints, etc. to add or append them to a flight plan. It's really pretty easy to create plans with LNM. For the GLOBE stuff; there are instructions on installation about four messages down in the Little Navmap installation thread. Ernie
