  1. This feels very strange and I am very frustrated. So I had recently reformatted my computer to upgrade to windows 10, and I cannot seem to get the ASN DLC to work at all, I keep getting an error with the dll.xml not being verified, even when I manually put in ASN into the dll.xml. I have installed all three simconnects and done multiple reinstallations. When opening fsx I do not get the typical active sky mode on the weather page. I don't think it even installed despite it saying it installed every time I uninstalled and installed again. I am at a loss. I understand very few people use fsx anymore, but any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  2. So I’m not really sure if this is me or the sim. After using Airbuses for long enough I decided to dabble in the PMDG for a bit. Set up a really non detailed flightplan, with a little bit of guessing here and there and went flying(aka I didn’t know the cg so I plugged a random number in so I could get v-speeds and low fuel reserves plugged in). Sometimes I like to do dirty zero prep flights just to make sure I can at least use the airplane on a basic level, and won’t be wasting time later figuring it out with GSX and ATC and trying to do everything by the book. Took off fine, turn the autopilot on at 1000ft because I’m lazy. And suddenly the autopilot gets a mind of its own. Lnav and Vnav would light up, like it’s supposed to. VNAV would descend at a pretty hard rate from a pretty solid climb(note: there was no altitude restriction in the FMC and during the descent, the airspeed would be pushing towards overspeed. It also wasn’t temporary, it would do this for a minute or more). LNAV would go straight into a 360, and would start to do some harsh banking, sometimes even a steep turn, even when a green Lnav was shown on the PFD. I was sort of able to figure that one out, since I had forgot I had not hit a direct and it was on vector, but even after I hit direct to the first waypoint the issue would persist on and off. In other words, with both LNAV and VNAV on, the airplane would go into a diving spiral. I eventually decided to take the autopilot off and hand fly it where I wanted it. Once I got stable I turned it on again, same problem. Paused it for a second to look this problem up. No luck. Unpause the sim, autopilot suddenly works perfectly. It Climbs normally, holds altitude, stays on course, like nothing had happened, at least until Approach. On the Approach I made a quick change of the route save time, deleted the initial fix for the ILS, still in a bit of a descent, LNAV and Vnav are still working fine. It flies fine for a minute or two, then boom exact same problem. Aircraft goes into a hard right turn(turning straight off the magenta line even though the waypoint was straight ahead), VNAV starts descending hard, busting straight through the MDA which was set in the fmc. Go overspeed again, and again I turn the autopilot off, and hand fly the rest of the Approach and land it. Not sure if I set something up wrong, or if it’s something with the sim or my joystick(I do know my joystick has a slight calibration to the right), or me just not knowing the airplane, any help would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Thank you, it might not actually be a problem, i may not have set the profile correctly. I just went through probably the most frame heavy location I have in fsx with a payware aircraft and I was able to switch back and forth no issue. I'll check back if it keeps reoccurring, or I'll head over to the other forum. Cheers!
  4. This problem has really been bothering me for a long time. I have tried basically everything in the book to solve it. When I switch tasks in flight, say to check vpilot or go to chrome, my controller resets and causes fsx not to read it anymore. I tried porting it through FSUIPC and the same problem occured. I've gone through device manager(making sure it doesn't cut off for power saving), and did the same thing in control panel. I have run fsx in compatability mode, still no luck. When I check fsuipc anything to do with the yoke disappears. I've updated the drivers on saitek, and the problem is still there. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with vas because whenever I go into a high end scenery area or I use a heavy payware aircraft it tends to happen more often. It's literally making it impossible to fly because I can't seem to go through a flight without this problem occuring. Sometimes I don't even need to do a task switch to get this to trigger, the yoke itself will just blip on and off and fsx will stop reading the yoke. This also happens with almost all my other joysticks as well. The only way I know about fixing it is by switching between fullscreen and windowed mode a ton of times, but that only works to a point. I am completely at a loss of what to do next. I've heard its a common problem with windows 8, but I still have no idea how to solve it.
  5. Hi I actually just installed the PIC today and came across the same problem with fsx-se. Just click cancel when it asks if you want to install SP2 and it should go through the install process without it. If it doesn't install after that, it may be something else.
  6. Ok, so I have the wilco e-jets package among other payware and I just got the new airac from Navigraph. The problem is that I can't seem to be able to install it or even find the folder to manually install it into. I noticed that it may not be supported anymore, however since related add-ons that came out at the same time are still supported shouldn't it work? Has anyone else had this issue with the ERJs and AIRACS?

  8. Ok so I am guessing this is a windows 10 problem, but I am not exactly sure how to fix it, because it seems related to another problem. So I just got a new system today,which I put windows 10 on as it was better than 8.1 in my personal opinion, and after installing fsx, I decided to install my saitek pro flight yoke, rudder pedals, and throttle quadrant. At first the yoke seemed to work ok with the drivers running well and the functionality reaching what it normally would on my old windows 7 computer. However after about an hour of having it plugged in the usb, the yoke, rudder system which was plugged in and the quadrant crashed simoultaniously. I checked some other forums and this seemed to be a problem with windows 7 as well, the fix for the rudder pedals was simple which was to unplug it from the yoke and put it in a separate port, however this could not fix the yoke and the throttles. I deleted the specific files from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE as well,but it didn't fix much. Looking at the device manager, the computer seemed to classify the yoke as a "generic usb hub" rather than a joystick, and after being somewhat lucky with using windows installer, which worked until I unplugged the yoke again.I am at this point unsure of what I need to do, I am not sure whether there is anything else I can do, has anyone else had this problem at all?
  9. Ok, this is a sort of weird question that doesn't really pretain to much, but what is with the fsx boxed prices? It is ranging from 60$-200$ in price right now? I am pretty sure this is due to fsx-se, but whether it is temporary or not is what puzzles me. Is this similar to flappy bird where the prices for phones with the app on it skyrocketed due to it not being around anymore for a period of time untill everyone forgot about it, or is this not really going to change that much since there is not any production of it anymore by Microsoft. I am not sure if the game even works anymore.Again this isn't a troubleshooting question or a please help, I already have the boxed version and I am happy with it along with steam edition, I am just curious on why the prices are so high for a game that really should be 30$.
  10. Ok, so I am looking to build a pc for fsx, but I want it to hold up on other sims such as xplane, prepar3d, or other games like arma 3, battlefield 4, etc. . This is what I came up with https://pcpartpicker.com/user/littleferrhis/saved/#savedbuild_1979789...Now I do understand that in games like fsx, intel seems to be the way to go, but I am also going to be using this for other games, and the 4 cores may be more beneficial in that aspect, as well as amd having cheap , but powerful hardware. I tried to go as cheap as possible, since my budget is around $500, and I am going to need to wheel and deal to even reach this goal. I wanted to hear opinions, and I want to see if there are parts that are better for at the same price or cheaper. Thanks...
  11. Ok, so this is not a please help nor a problem...this is just something I am tinkering with a bit to see if I can get it to work. I am wanting to try and find a pirep system so I can make a va, and I came across this little tool...and now with steam edition coming out I thought I might as well try and get a little ahead of the curve and create a Steam Edition VA using this tool so I won't have to host a server for Pireps. Now I am trying to get this to work on my version...again this isn't exactly a problem...I have modified the DLL.XML to accept the dll that used fsrecorder, but sadley came across a little runtime error following it. I am pretty sure it is not a Dll.xml because I compared the FSrecorder function to my newly installed fsuipc, and then compared that to my boxed version Dll.xml , and everything seemed to be correct, although I did come across something that caught my eye. FSUIPC for fsx se and the regular fsuipc seem to be going to the exact same .DLL, so now I am not sure... Below I have left the contents of my DLL.XML for fsx-se(modified) as well as the boxed version where fsrecorder works fine. If this is a FSRecorder dll problem I might stop, because I am not even sure exactly how dlls work. I think they are a compilation of different files, but I have heard tinkering with Dlls can cause a lot of problems. Again this is not a problem with my fsx I can just wipe the code and get fsx-se to work fine, but I would like to see whether or not I can get this to work... -Modifed FSX-SE DLL.XML <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 4</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>Modules\FSUIPC4.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FS Recorder</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>C:\Program Files\FS Recorder for FSX\FSRecorder_FSX.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> -FSX boxed xml <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 4</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>Modules\FSUIPC4.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon><Name>FS Recorder</Name><Disabled>False</Disabled><ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad><Path>C:\Program Files\FS Recorder for FSX\FSRecorder_FSX.dll</Path></Launch.Addon></SimBase.Document>
  12. Actually to be quite honest with you I actually was looking up what screen had the engine start stuff on it, I had been watching quite a few video tutorials on how to start up the plane and was really just hitting the switches and then look at whatever engine is there and go to the top one, because I know that is the one that should be moving...also I usually try and start engine 2 up first, but it gives me the same type of problem until I move to number 1, which once again starts up fine..I will definitely try and check the ISOL valves though...if it is not that, it is most likely because I reinstalled fsx(which for some reason doesn't mess with the aircraft folder) and didn't reinstall PMDG. I have been getting a lot of problems with the PMDG anyways, right now I am just being lazy. So I will try some of that out...
  13. I hope this isn't a problem with the plane itself because I don't want to have to send another ticket...sometimes when I am starting the engines engine 2 won't start. Engine 1 will start fine, and then when I move to engine 2 the only thing that will move is the EGT to about 300 and then decreasing to about 100. The n1 just remains at 0.0. I have tried restarting the apu, figiting with the air conditioning, stopping engine one and then starting with engine 2, starting with engine 2, etc., but nothing works. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks
  14. I have sent it, I am going to wait before I reinstall to see if it is a easy fix...until then its Airbus X Extended time .
  15. Nice flight, I might do that flight once I get the pmdg 737-700, I have had relatives go on that flight. Pretty nice airline.
