  1. I have only the generic p-51 so it affects that now. I reported it.
  2. I have only the base P-51. I too was told this would be fixed in SU14. I have updated the Reno package in the content manager. Even if I open the throttle enough to taxi down the runway (revs well in the green) the engine stops. Does this happen to others or am I doing something wrong?
  3. I think a few people are confused by Flight Simulator 2K as it doesn't run on a supported version of windows.
  4. Watching the updates it install Hanada airport version 1.26 then version 1.27 etc, instead of just the latest. It is now using all my internet so the servers must have overloaded. The tabloid headline was a result of my frustration. I have all the flightsims and have never had so much trouble installing one.
  5. There are 2 options in the store. MSFS and MSFS preorder. Unfortunately the one it runs by default is preorder which downloads it again. However even after choosing the other it insists on updating. Store app upgrade on/off is greyed out. The upgrade seems to through every increment Hanada 1.26, 1.27, 1.28 and isn't using al of even my modest internet. I will never use Microsoft store again.
  6. The single least enjoyable game install ever. I install the 10 dvds. Fine. The prompt comes up MSFS Preorder, chose which disc to install 120 gb to. I kill it go into Microsoft store. I have 2 games MSFS and MSFS preorder. I install MSFS. now it only has 1 gb to download. watch several logos and doleful music. press any key nothing happens. ctl alt del, kill it. Next time round we get past that. Blue progress bar creeps across the screen. At the end nothing happens. Kill it again. Third time through it needs a 16 gb update. This crashes but has recovered.
  7. Amazon UK are selling it. I don't know if they ship to USA.
  8. If you have FSX or any previous P3D copy the missing files (panel, sound, interior.mdl and model.cfg) into the Beaver and Goose folders. Instant free water planes.
  9. I'm with David Mills on this one. He should have pointed out he was using Orbx textures. The default scenery is worse than FSX and the clouds are not as good as Flightsim World. The waves however are great fun. Taking off in afloat plane against them is quite something.

    If you look at the texture folders under each aircraft you will find unused liveries. There is a nice yellow Super Cub.
  11. Its picky about fs9 planes a lot of which were sold as fsx. Try an fsx default plane using the .cfg from the download. The Goose or Beaver work really well. This is what I have in: E:\Steam\steamapps\common\FSW\SimObjects\Airplanes\DeHavilland_Beaver_DHC2 aircraft.cfg Taken from fsw_aircraft_cfgs.zip DehavillandBeaverDHC2_check.htm DehavillandBeaverDHC2_ref.htm DeHavilland_Beaver_DHC2.air model panel sound soundai Texture Texture.1 Texture.2
  12. It could be the plane you ae trying. Fs9 planes or payware that relies on 32bit dlls don't work. Download fsw_aircraft_cfgs.zip from the library and try an fsx default plane. They definitely still work in the latest version
  13. Open the aircraft.cfg with notepad you will see several sections like this [fltsim.0] title=Cessna Skyhawk 172SP Paint1 sim=Cessna172SP model= panel= sound= texture=1 kb_checklists=Cessna172SP_check kb_reference=Cessna172SP_ref atc_id=G-BAFM ui_manufacturer="Cessna" ui_type="C172SP Skyhawk" ui_variation=" Blue, Gold" ui_typerole="Single Engine Prop" ui_createdby="Microsoft Corporation" description="Cessna 172." add the following at the end of each ui_thumbnailfile="texture\thumbnail.jpg" ui_hangarfile="texture\thumbnail.jpg" ui_selectionfile="texture\thumbnail.jpg" ui_tilefile="texture\thumbnail.jpg" ui_info=333705325 you can change texture to texture.No where No is the number after texture= ui_thumbnailfile="texture.1\thumbnail.jpg" ui_hangarfile="texture.1\thumbnail.jpg" ui_selectionfile="texture.1\thumbnail.jpg" ui_tilefile="texture.1\thumbnail.jpg" (it makes the right thumbnail appear) but it's not essential. Look for this section [Reference Speeds] flaps_up_stall_speed = 53.0 //Knots True (KTAS) full_flaps_stall_speed = 48.0 //Knots True (KTAS) cruise_speed = 115.0 //Knots True (KTAS) max_indicated_speed = 163 //Red line (KIAS) add the following after it.

  14. Have you tried creating an FSX folder with an empty text file called fsx.exe in it. Might work.
