    Started out flighing sims in my teens, my first one was Solo Flight on the Atari 8 bit. I got FS9 a few years ago but thought it was all too complicated. I then purchased FSX about 2 years ago and installed it, i thought it ran horribly and then uninstalled it. Just over a yeat ago I found avsim and realised that FSX has to be tweaked and set up in a certan way so I gave it another try on my old dual core system and was hooked.

    I have just purchased a custom built pc and now feel that its time to learn all over again but it sure is fun

  1. Thank you Richard, am so glad you enjoyed it. I am in the editing the video for the next flight, Must admit despite it's age FSX really does continue to impress me
  2. Hi Guys I hope everyone is well. Having a lot of free time at the moment and i have got a friend of mine into flight simulation. He is just starting out and is running FSX Steam edition ( i have both boxed and SE on two different machines). What i would really like to do is fly online with him so we can do a flight together. Vatsim would not be possible as my friend has only just started and i have never done flying on Vatsim either. I have heard of FSCloud and Join FS, does anyone use these and would they enable myself and my friend to do some flights around a small GA airfield? ideally it would need to be really easy to set up kind regards Daz
  3. Thankyou Bert , I will give the settings a try. Re limiting the frame rate any reason for limiting to 29 rather than 30?
  4. Yep Leeds Bradford is our next stop, I will ask her to make you a special drink 😉
  5. Hi Guys Hope you are all well. Am looking for some advice, have been a long time FSX user (don't shoot me🤣) and have just bought P3D 4.5. Have been away from P3D since V3 and judging from the optionsin the sim I have alot of catching up to do. I wasn't quite brave enough to go for v5 yet, maybe I will in a few years. Now my FSX set up runs pretty smooth locked at 30 and I am not ready to ditch it yet. I run with a single 1080P screen which is only capable of 60 or 50Hz. Can anyone offer some advice regarding the settings i should be using. Idealy I would like to be running at 30 and above all i am looking for a smooth experience. ( the last time i tried with V3 I could never get it to run as smooth as FSX so left it alone). The set up is running an I5 9600K at 4.8Ghz 16GB Ram on Windows 10 with a GTX 2080. I have alot of ORBX sceneries and gather I can use ORBX Central to download these for P3D aswell, Would i also be right in that i can use the two sims with no problems? ( they are on different drives). Take care and stay safe Daz
  6. Hi Mark Many thanks for joining us on the flight to London City 🙂. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed it. I have been battling depression for quite a while and the current Covid 19 situation has made the situation worse. Flying has really helped and have definitely discovered my joy of flying again, it really does make me happy that people like and comment on the videos i make. As for the framerate i was happily suprised at how well the sim peformed as was expecting the frame rate to tank especially approaching London. My rig is set up as per the AVSIM FSX set up guide and i lock my frames to 30. I also reduce the traffic to about 25 percent. I don't deactivate any airports ( i have about 6 UK2000 ones activate currently including Gatwick). I also run active sky in a way that creates a nice haze effect and have the draw distance set about 70 miles, this really does help with framerates too. My flight rig is old by modern standards but still does the job pretty well. Any other questions please to fire away stay safe Daz
  7. After battling some serious depression and anxiety during the enclosed lockdown I have made a new video for my tour of the UK. This really helped me and i thought I would share it with you. Please take a seat for this short flight from Birmingham (EGBB) to London City (EGLC). Take care and stay safe Daz
  8. If i need a 12GB card to run at 1080P I will pass on V5 it sounds like a 2080 will not be enough.
  9. Just found out mine is reopening 3 days a week starting from tomorrow 😊
  10. Very sad news. Jim helped me out when i first found out about FSX and AVSIM, He was patient and also very helpful. Rest in peace JIm
  11. You might be pushing that CPU a bit too hard especially with PMDG aircraft.FSX loves high clockspeeds especially if running complex add ons. Can you try a flight in a default aircraft and see if you still have the same issue?
  12. Personally I would not fly without them, it all really depends on what aircraft you fly. I mainly fly around the Uk so England, Wales and Scotland are a must have for me. For Europe i use open LC europe and that does the job. Having said that I have just purchased Norway and am in 2 minds about buying Germany North and South ( i use the other simulator 😁)
  13. Just thought i would give everyone an update, i found another fsx registry fixer and that did the job.
  14. Hi Am definitely recording using ALT+F9, the sound carries on playing its just the video that stops after about 7 secs
