  1. I am "retired" but worked in IT from 1963 to 2005. I have been a programmer, systems analyst, IT Manager and consultant, and then went into manufacturing since my degree is in Business Management. Spent a number of years splitting my time, at the same companies, between IT and Production Management & Purchasing. We (AVSIM) have a lot of talented people participating in this "hobby".....thanks to all of you for your involvement. My aircraft interest started when I was young and heard about Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart!!!! :wink: :wink:
  2. Interesting video regarding Eric Brown:
  3. Thanks for those links! More interesting information and it will probably take me a few reads to get a basic understanding of the techniques, but very interesting.
  4. I have been "learning" about flying and FSX for a number of years. With the recent discussion about "new" simulators I thought I would see what information was available about FSX development and ESP evolution. I am going to include a few links that might be of interest to some of you. After looking at this material I am more enamored with FSX/ESP and the evolution. Perhaps some of you (particularly those that have dug into the SDK in depth - i.e.Steve Parsons, developers, etc.)already know most of this. I hope you find these interesting. Let us start with the WiKI information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Microsoft_Flight_Simulator Microsoft ESP SDK White Paper: https://app.box.com/s/tdt0xv8torf2cvbolhx0y8tu40zz708e GameBasedLearningStudies: https://app.box.com/s/pvjkieqhy3rr82w5b8j54cznc1w1o2ah Converting 3DSMax models to GMax for use with FSX: https://app.box.com/s/upmqxq7hhvlu4dtg175macuy8lmsn1u0 Enjoy..............

  6. I had similar problems months ago and decided to disable it and go with Plan-G. It is shareware but a donation is nice....................
  7. Just to clarify those statistics are from Oct 2012, not just my around the world flights.
  8. I did a similar trip last year BUT i stayed with twin engine turboprops, so that i could take in smaller airports AND run up my airport count. Here are some stats that I currently have: Flights,2801 Planes used,13 Airports used,1038 Landing,3649 Hours,3173.3 Night,1147.7 IFR,452.2 Multi,3149.8 Avg Flight Time,1.13 hours (67 min) As you can see most were ONLY a little over 1 hour, I did NOT do this in just a few days/weeks!!! LOL Luckily my wife was patient, and a lot were done late evening.
  9. John, Thanks for the reminders. I downloaded Plan-G over two years ago but never installed or tried it. Thanks to your post I have downloaded the latest version and have used it for about 1 hour. Very nice piece of software and I will have to acknowledge with a contribution as well. Happy New Year!!! Bob
  10. Actually in the non-free Avast you can block pop-ups, including pop-ups selling Avast other products.
  11. I use Avast at it has a silent/gaming mode, which I use. I can not see a performance difference in FSX whether I am running Avast or not. I am now on Windows 10 for FSX.
  12. I did the same about 2 years ago and today I went into Toposim to request a special airport build. Thanks Justin and good luck........keep it going.............
  13. It does not look like anyone else has a solution, so.....I have been running FSX without FSTramp for about 5 days. I am getting a much smoother, as well as higher FPS, without FSTramp. I think I am going to not use FSTramp any more and enjoy my flying.
  14. I have not determined the cause yet but below is the response I received from the developer: Hello, unfortunately my answer is disappointing. I have no simple and helpful response. Your computer system is not stable. Cause could be: 1. Extreme change the FSX configuration, especially the graphics settings. 2. Improper graphics card driver or overclocking. 3. Windows 10 ? Best Regards, Helge Schroeder Team FSTramp
  15. Link to Box image of picture: https://app.box.com/s/jpdrrjntd94p6srfa4e6ma787cbjvova I am getting this error regardless of whether I am running DX9 or 10. I have rebuilt my fsx.cfg, checked my exe.xml and dll.xml with previous versions and no changes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled FSTramp, even going back several versions which I know worked. I was running OK up until a couple of days ago and something changed.

I could not find anything on Our site relative to this problem nor on the Internet. I have also sent a note to the developer but have not heard back yet. Thanks, Bob
  16. Thank you for all the "clues"!! I actually went back to an old FSX.CFG and sure enough no problems with manual engine startup. I appreciate all the replies and again added some more FSX knowledge to this old head of mine. THANKS!!
  17. Thanks Barry for the suggestions. I have tried those and no change. I also have checked out other aircraft and none have a problem except the King Air. I also set SIMOBJECTS to rebuild thinking that somehow cache was carried over, that did not help. I even took a copy of the 3 King Air SIMOBJECTS I have on a laptop and copied them over and still the problem persists. I am going to remove the Milviz King Air 350i completely and see if I can get the default King Air to work again. Perhaps someone from Milviz has some input since I only have the problem with the King Air (both Milviz and default). Thanks..... Bob Werab
  18. In the last week or so I am having a problem getting ANY engines on the King Air (default & Milviz) to start. They will not start using CTL E nor will they start using the panel switches. Any ideas or suggestions? My Baron 58 starts ok, as do my other aircraft. I have not made any changes to the aircraft except for installing the latest beta release of the Milviz 350i. I have also tried uninstalling the 350i but that does not seem to make a difference. I have to admit I have not flown any King Air recently and may just have forgotten a switch or step in the engine start procedure. Thanks in advance, Bob.
  19. Rest in Peace Tom Allensworth and thank you for everything that you have done to add great enjoyment to so many people's lives. High Flight by John Magee Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunwards I’ve climbed and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds – and done a thousand things You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there, I’ve chased the shouting wind along and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air, Up, up the long delirious burning blue I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace, Where never lark, or even eagle, flew; And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of god.
