    Ask The Devs - Flight Sim World Q+A

    I couldn't register in FSW and kept getting an error. I had to register through the dovetail live site using a browser, then I was able to use the account details to successfully login in FSW.

    FSW Free for Flight School Users

    3rd party developers with high costs (i.e. full time staff creating high quality and complex add-ons) won't distribute thier products on Steam due to reduce revenue, so will be excluded from FSW. Unless DTG has plans to devleop FlyTampa level scenery or PMDG sophistication we're going to have a very limited platform in FSW.

    I give it 10 posts before someone finds something to complain about
  4. wooohooo From the Flight School Facebook Page "Following the announcement of Flight Sim World earlier this week, we would like to take a quick moment to thank the virtual pilots who have stuck with us over the course of the past year. As a way of showing our appreciation for your support, we will be gifting a copy of Flight Sim World to everyone who invested in Flight School. We can't wait to welcome you aboard!"

    Is VR the reason for the delay?

    In a shopping mall in SoCal this past weekend I passed by a Microsoft stand with a queue of people waiting in line to try out an Oculus Rift headset. The person with a headset on as I walk by was flailing her arms about and looked unsteady on her feet. I didn’t give it much thought and continued along my path to the Cinnabon bakery. A few days later in the middle of the week I happened to walk by the same Microsoft stand. The stand was empty except for a salesperson, what the heck I thought, let’s give it a go. I donned the headset and the salesperson took me though a calibration routine, nothing ground breaking to report so far. Next I was transported to the base of a mountain cliff, the salesperson instructed me to use my hands to “pull myself up” and climb the wall. All easy stuff and pretty much what I expected. I was not prepared for what happened next. The salesperson asked me to look down. I had in fact started my climb not from the base of the cliff but half way up, and suddenly there I was dangling with my feet in the air, hanging on my with my hands for dear life. I felt dizzy, my toes tingled, my palms started to sweat, my heart raced and I panicked. I shouted for the salesperson to stop the demo and I whipped off the headset, desperate to be transported back to the safety of the sturdy mall. I can only imagine the sense of excitement I will experience the first time in the cockpit of a PMDG VR 737 in DTG’s VR Flight Simulator. I am certain that this is the future, not now but we’ll get there in a couple of years. What a great time to be part of this community.

    Thanks for the insight Martin. It's good to see DTG back and connecting with the simulation community, it's what many of us admired about your approach to the business of FS development. Raj
  7. Mike, Brian, Do PTA and RSP provide the same function as REX 4 and Active Sky? If so, is one set of products better than the other? Regards, Raj

  9. Now that game mode is available for Windows 10 Insider Build I was wondering if anyone has tried it and seen an performance improvement. Raj

    Palm Springs to Sedona

    Beautiful pictures. What scenery you are using for Palm Springs? I've flown into the actual airport and your scenery is a good match for the real thing! Raj

    P3D 3.4 Experience Thread

    I upgraded just the client component from 3.3.5 to 3.4 follwing Poppets instructions http://www.avsim.com/topic/484945-how-do-i-update-prepar3d-v3-using-the-new-installers/ It upgraded without any problems or errors. The About menu correctly reads the version number. I have Orbx Global Base and Global Vector installed, FSUIPC 4.699c and Ezdok 1.8.7. All continued to work without the need to reinstall. ASN v6010 required entering the license number and threw up a few errors, but still works ok. PMDG 777 needed the 3 simconnect.msi installers run again to operate correctly. The sim itself is noticably smoother for me. PC is i7 6700 clocked to 4.6GHz, Nvidia GTX970. PMDG777 on runway at KSFO (from the Orbx NA airport pack) gives 50-55 fps, same as before but smoother (I have medium settings on). Hope that helps.
  12. It seems the problem is a controls mapping file that I created. The file somehow become corrupt and cause load and save scenario to go wonky. I was able to recreate the error by load the maping file, so I'm sure that was the cause. 3 solid days that took me!
  13. Jim, Thanks for the advice and for the CTD Guide link. I now think that the problem may be due to Windows Defender incorrectly dedecting a trojan and quarantining a number of items. The trojan detected is is Rundas!plock, a quick Google search shows that it has been reported by other users as well after installing Preapr3d 3.3.5. This is in the Windows Defender log file: Category: Trojan Description: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker. Recommended action: Remove this software immediately. Items: file:C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\{27862a40-458c-4063-be58-10baf3161056}\Setup.exe uninstall:HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\{27862a40-458c-4063-be58-10baf3161056} runonce:HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUNONCE\\{27862a40-458c-4063-be58-10baf3161056} regkey:HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUNONCE\\{27862a40-458c-4063-be58-10baf3161056} regkey:HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\{27862a40-458c-4063-be58-10baf3161056} I disabled realtime protection and installed Preapr3d again. Unfortunately the moment I enabled Defender it discovered the trojan, incorrectly, and again quarantined the items. I'm not sure how to prevent the behaviour off hand, so I'm going to have to do some research. Regards, Raj
