  1. The avatar option changes the appearance, but the pilot voice is still female. Has anyone discovered how to get a male voice as the pilot? Thanks
  2. Overall, the 2080 super is certainly a step up from the 2080, probably about 10% faster. But it's a good idea to wait if you can. I'm waiting and hoping to stretch to the 2080 Ti if the 3000 series brings their prices down a bit. I've currently got a 2070, which is actually an excellent card, but I really want to future proof and get the most out of VR if I can, so at least I can also sell that and get a bit back.
  3. 35 / 7 here, 16 ping. It's not cheap to buy MSFS20, so I hope that's enough to run it at it's best. My pc itself is good, and I can always upgrade pc bits, but that's the best speed I'm going to get where I live.
  4. I have FSX & Prepared 4.5, but I haven't used them for a year or two. I just got too disillusioned with all the careful installing of addons, aircraft, scenery, etc, and trying to get them all cooperating together. I was not really intending to bother with MSFS2020, as I don't like logging into Microsoft account, syncing my devices, & all the intrusion that seems to go with it. It's not just Microsoft, I feel the same about Facebook and Google - they're all too invasive by far. But after seeing so many of the MSFS2020 trailers and screenshots & reading of it's progress, I can't really let it pass. It really does look like an astounding step up. So I begrudgingly signed into Microsoft account, and pre-ordered the Premium Deluxe.
  5. Hi, whether I choose standard, deluxe, or premium, can someone please confirm MSFS2020 will run on my pc without having to subscribe to 'Xbox Game Pass for pc'. I really want to buy this, but I do NOT want a monthly subscription. Thanks for any answers
  6. NO subscription. I will absolutely not keep paying month to month for a game. Offline play must also be an option, or I will think twice. And I will only buy it when my pc can handle it, so probably not immediately on release.
  7. Hi, no I don't have global base. When I purchased England and Southern California, there was no other requirement listed. But I also downloaded Orbx libraries, I think that was direct from the FTX Central 3 software. I tried verifying the libraries but that didn't fix it. I'm uninstalling all scenery now to get to the cause of it. Thanks for the suggestion
  8. Hi, I seem to have a very similar problem, but I'm struggling to understand what is causing it. I recently went to Luqa(Malta) LMML and the 'black' patches are all across the airport. Actually it is 'black with night lights' rather than black. So then I picked an Italian airport at random, LIBL, and that is exactly the same. Big 'night' patches all over the airport. I have Prepar3d 4.5., and my Orbx sceneries are EU England, and NA Southern California, plus the Orbx libraries. I don't have any of the other global Orbx addons. Apart from this, I have FSDreamTeam airports in USA, and UK2000 airports in UK. Do you think one of these is causing this, or could it be something else, changing the elevation in some way? I thought I'd ask before I uninstall them one by one. Any advice is appreciated
  9. That's fair enough, and understood, thanks for the replies, I shall stop worrying and get back to the flying. Mind you, some good came of it - I decided to remove the cpu fan and reseat it with some new thermal paste and it does seem to have lowered it's temps by 5+ degrees. Thanks again
  10. Prepar3d 4.5 is running ok on my system, most settings are high or even max, and I get around 30fps at even busy airports. If I lower any details, frame rate goes up accordingly. But still, I can't help wondering, why both my CPU and my GPU only use around 30% of their maximum. I have an Asus Z87K motherboard, i7-4770K cpu, EVGA RTX2070 XC gpu, and 24GB 2133speed ram. Could it be that the ram is too slow or the cpu throttling back due to temperature - (it does often go into the 80s)? I don't want to spend hours agonizing over it as it runs ok, but just wondered if anyone can suggest any other reason.
  11. Hi I'm just returning to flight sims after a break, now restarting with P3Dv4. I previously used Air Hauler 1 & I'm thinking of buying AH2 (should have done this when the upgrade discount was being offered, doh). I'm just wondering, is there now a specific 64bit version, i.e is there any noticeable drop in performance using AH2 with the latest Prepar3d? Thanks all
  12. I've only just seen this post so I don't know if the OP will read it 3 months later. I just want to mention, I have read of other people with eye problems that gave them no depth perception, and they had been very surprised to find that the VR actually worked for them despite their eye condition. As a new Oculus Rift owner, I would say, the fun of flying in VR is so good, that you really should find somewhere to trial one (for example, in UK, you can try them in Currys/PC World). You just might find it is useable for you. Also, there is a website widmovr.com, that produces prescription lenses, that clip into a frame, which in turn, clips into the Oculus Rift headset. If your prescription is not listed, you can contact them direct and they will tell you if they can assist. I have not used this company, as I can currently get away without my glasses in the Rift, but I will certainly try these prescription lenses when I need to. Anyway, just a couple of thoughts that just might help. Happy New Year to all.
  13. No Problem, but just to emphasize, I did not make the edited file myself, I posted the info given by 'bbogdansk' who posted it on the Steam FSX forum, so all credit goes to him for creating the file. 🙂
  14. 'bbogdansk' posted this on Steam in case anyone has not seen it: Quote: "Incorrect home page fix for FSX: Steam Edition I fixed the error that was showing the wrong webpage when starting FSX:Steam Edition. The home page was directed to "http://www.fsinsider.com" which does not exist. I replaced the file "gshome.spb" with a recompiled file which directs the home page to "http://www.fsxworld.com/products/games/FSXInsider/fsxlauncher.html" which is the new site that should appear. Here's what I did, this is what the new "gshome.xml" looks like : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="SimUIResource" id="gsnews" version="1,0"> <Descr>Microsoft Flight Simulator UI Resource Document</Descr> <Filename>gshome.spb</Filename> <SimUI.Dialog id="gsnews"> <Size>1024,768</Size> <Position>0,0</Position> <Descr>Flight Simulator Dialog Template</Descr> <Caption>HOME</Caption> <SizeToContent>true</SizeToContent> <Label id="lblBrowser"> <Visible>false</Visible> <Position>211,80</Position> <Size>805,585</Size> <SizeToContent>false</SizeToContent> </Label> <HtmlDocument id="urlFirst"> <Filename>../fsweb/gettingstarted/gettingstarted.htm</Filename> </HtmlDocument> <HtmlDocument id="urlXPackFirst"> <Filename>../fsweb/learningcenter/keyconcepts/whatschanged.htm</Filename> </HtmlDocument> <HtmlDocument id="urlLocal"> <Filename>gs01.htm</Filename> </HtmlDocument> <HtmlDocument id="urlLive"> <Filename>http://www.fsxworld.com/products/games/FSXInsider/fsxlauncher.html</Filename> </HtmlDocument> </SimUI.Dialog> </SimBase.Document> Then using the "simpropcompiler.exe" in the FSX SDK, compiled it back to "gshome.spb" I have placed the original "gshome.spb" as "gshome.spb.old" as well as the new "gshome.spb" in the Dialogs folder If you want the new file, pls post or check avsim library! " end quote Hope that helps.
