    Premier and GTN750

    Hi Bert, After watching the brilliant Premier1 Driver on Youtube for a few months, I was so enthused that I bought the Carenado Premier. I soon discovered that its systems left a lot to be desired (since I concurrently use a GTN 750 on other craft). I am sending you a PM right now for the GTN 750 mod. Thanks very much in advance for sharing! Best, Lucky ////////////////////
  3. :smile: Hi All, When creating a flight plan (excluding sids and stars), should one always attempt to get onto the nearest airways, or doesn't that matter? Thanks in advance for your advice! Best, Lucky :smile: //////////////
  4. Hi All, I am unable to understand the formatting of messages on the main panel and hope someone here can shed light on the subject. Sometimes the messages are wrapped in angle brackets. What do the brackets mean? Sometimes the messages are wrapped in hyphens. What do the hyphens mean? Sometimes the messages are wrapped in hyphens and brackets, What does the combo mean? Sometimes the messages are not wrapped in anything. What does that mean? These questions have been bothering me for more than a year. Please set my doubts to rest? Thanks a ton in advance for your help! Best, Lucky :smile: /////////////
  5. Hi Steve, My Steam Edition (and several others') creates two folders in AppData/Roaming: FSX and FSX-SE. The 2.11 Fixer adds the following two files to FSX.cfg in the FSX folder and not FSX.cfg in the FSX-XE folder: MultiSamplesPerPixel=8 MultiSampleQuality=16 When I click on "fsx.cfg" in "Fsx Settings" at the top of the main screen of the Fixer, it launches the FSX.cfg in the FSX folder. How do I point the Fixer to the FSX-SE folder for accessing FSX.cfg? Thanks in advance for your help, Steve! Best, Lucky ///////////

    Only Some Liveries Appear in FSX-SE

    Hi All, Update: I realize that the extra liveries I installed were for the 737 Winglet versions, and that all PMDG 737 NG winglet versions are simply not available in the "Select Aircraft" window of FSX-SE! So now my question is: how do I make the winglet versions appear in the "Select Aircraft" window of FSX-SE ?? Yours in puzzlement, Lucky Balaraman ////////// SOLVED! I hadn't checked the "Show All Variations" box!!! Thanks much to SincereRodriques for his post at http://forum.avsim.net/topic/465667-pmdg-737-steam-edition/ ! Best, Lucky /////////////
  7. :smile: Hi, I'm running FSX-SE on Windows 8. The PMDG Operations Center informed me that I had an earlier version of the PMDG 737 installed, so I uninstalled the 737, downloaded the latest version (1.10.6461) today and installed it. Installed several liveries using the OC's Livery Manager. Launched the 737 in FSX-SE, saw only one of the addon liveries (Jet Airways, which was not from the PMDG livery collection; PMDG's own BA and Qantas, which I had loaded from the Livery Downloader, did not appear). I went into Sim Objects/Airplanes/PMDG 737-800NGX WL, the BA and Qantas texture folders are indeed in there. So I ran all the SimConnect.msi files as specified in FSX STEAM EDITION USERS READ ME.txt, restarted my machine and launched FSX-SE. Still no BA, Qantas etc liveries. What do I need to do to bring those liveries in? Thanks in advance for your help! Best, Lucky Balaraman :smile: //////////////
  8. :smile: Hi All, Outside of the checklists if I want to make the FO set flaps, I can't figure out which phrase works. I have tried "Set Flaps 15" and "Flaps 15" to no avail. May I please know the correct voice command syntax? Thanks a ton in advance, Lucky :smile:

  11. :smile: Hi All, I would like to superimpose FSX aircraft on 'actual' photographs. For this I need FSX to display only the aircraft on a white or transparent background. So how does one disable FSX from showing all scenery? There must be a line of code somewhere that can be tweaked to achieve this. Thanks in advance for your solution, which is much appreciated! Best, Lucky :smile:
  12. Hi All, Bought the Carenado PC12 on Oct 3 and have been enjoying flying it... until I tried to adjust the heading bug and could not find its adjustment knob! Could someone please tell me where it is? Much obliged! Best, Lucky /////////// Found it! Thanks anyways, Lucky ////////

    No manual

    And where is the Ref speeds table?
  14. Many thanks, bros, clearly there are no two ways about this! Best, Lucky ///////////
  15. Hi All, I am going in for a new disk to accomodate my growing FSX storage needs. Should I get more speed (but less max storage) by getting an SSD or should I get more max storage (but less speed) with an HDD? I look forward to your advice on this, friends. Thanks so much in advance! Best, Lucky ////////////
