  1. I started my flying lessons in a 152 years ago, so I'm excited about this mod. I read in the description that you can discharge the battery. I'm running a steam edition with the latest .16 mod. After a few startups, but no flight or extended idle, when I tried another start I only got about half a turn of the engine and then nothing. Had I discharged the battery? How do you recharge it? I removed the mod from my community folder, loaded the sim, closed down, reloaded the mod and it started right up (using Saitek/Logitech switch panel which works beautifully BTW). Is there a repair screen that I'm unaware of?
  2. Some years ago Bruce Williams and Jeff Van West wrote books on using FSX for real-world pilot training. There were links from which you could download FLT, FSSAVE and WX files. Are those compatible with MSFS2020?
  3. OK, figured it out. I copied the dsd_p3d_xml_sound_x64.dll from inside the DSD_p3d_xml_sound_x64 folder to the Warthog Panel folder and renamed it dsd_fsx_xml_sound.dll. I renamed the existing dsd_fsx_xml_sound.gau to dsd_fsx_xml_sound_gau.org to render it unused. I now have sounds in the cockpit! Ken
  4. So I downloaded the IRIS Warthog and dsd_p3d_xml_sound_x64 from Dawson. Is that the right file from Dawson and where do I find the IRIS file that needs to be replaced? There is a file in the Panel folder called dsd_fsx_xml_sound.gau. Is that the one? Ken
  5. When I click to download the e-commerce installer, my Windows Defender says that rxpGNS2-530-FSIM.exe has a trojan Win32/Azden.B!cl and won't let me run it. Anyone else had this problem? Ken
  6. Well, I got impatient and uninstalled P3D before some of you posted suggestions. No big loss since I didn't have much in the way of addons installed. So, today I did a clean install and launched P3D with no mods. The flicker was just as bad! Then I tried the suggestion from exeodus and behold! Problem solved. You are a genius sir! Thank you all who responded ... I appreciate the help. Ken
  7. Well, maybe flicker would be a better description. Ken
  8. I tried installing the milviz 737-200 into my P3dV4 and it crashed to the desktop near the end of the process. Installed with no problem into FSX-SE. Now whenever I load anything else the screen keeps twitching about every two seconds. Am I going to have to do a fresh install (and have to reinstall all my 3rd party aircraft)? Doesn't happen with any other simulator (FSX, XP11, TS2020). Ken
  9. How easy is it to set up in XP11? Do you need their software? Ken
  10. Is it still available?  Sent you a PM.

  11. Just bought the 757 and 737 plus freighter packages. Installation went smoothly & aircraft look great. However, any idea where the user manuals get installed? Ken Found them on the CS site.
  12. I plan to buy a cheap joystick (probably on ebay) to use as a tiller control with large aircraft. I just need something that has twist for rudder control .... probably won't use any other functions except maybe a few button assignments. Any recommendations? Ken
  13. What author name will you be using in online profiles? Ken
  14. I've been wondering if it would be possible to creat multiple installations of copies of FSX-SE. They would be "frozen in time" of the date I make them and would not be subject to periodic steam updates of course. There's a tutorial on flightsim about how to create multiple installs of FS2004 (and presumably FXS Classic) and it looks fairly easy. So I'm wondering can I copy my FSX-SE installation (in my case on my I: drive, not the default location) into a new folder on my drive and rename the FSX.exe to something like FSXww2.exe. Will it create the necessary folders and files the first time I run it without conflicting with the base installation (e.g. Libraries-Documents-Microsoft Simulator X Files, ProgramData-Microsoft-FSX, AppData-Roaming-Microsoft-FSX, AppData-Local-Microsoft-FSX)? Or would I need to create the folders and modify names to eliminate conflict? Since I won't be able to install DLC aircraft through the Steam process, should I load up my FSX-SE installation with all of them that I expect to use before I make my first copy, and then thin out the ones I don't want in a given copy (I plan to make more than one copy)? Along those lines, is there any utility that exists to list all the files and their locations that were added in a specified historical time period? Say for example I download a DLC aircraft from Steam at 4pm and nothing else, and at 5pm could I query the new files added to my system between 3:58 and 4:58pm? It would be instructive to know what was added to effects, gauges, sound, etc in addition to SimObjects. Or is this not necessary because Steam puts everything added in the DLC folder? For other addons I plan to install into a "dummy" FSX install with empty folders for Addon Scenery, effects, gauges, Scenery, SimObjects and sound. Then transfer to my copied installation, leaving the dummy empty for the next use. That is, assuming the installer gives me the option of specifying another path. My reason for wanting to do this (if possible) is that I would like one install that's all WW2 stuff, another for Vietnam era, and a modern era. Does this sound doable? Am I overlooking something? Has anyone already done this and can share their experience? Ken
  15. After a bunch of research on-line it seems most folks recommend SPADneXt over the Logitech drivers. I looked through the list of online profiles ... it's quite extensive but people haven't been very good about filling in the Comment section! What profile would you recommend for the default (Carenado) AC11 Commander 114? Should I just look for a similar airplane type (single engine, retractable gear, vbl pitch prop)? Ken
