  1. Hi all! I have a quick question regarding Chaseplane which i cannot seem to find an answer for: Does CP work correctly when doing the walkaround on the A2A Cessna 172? I am currently using Ezdok, and have seen a lot of information on CP to make me consider switching (the main reason being that ezdok does not work correctly when doing the walkaround, the camera views are messed up). Everything else i have heard makes me want to jump ship, but if CP does not work correctly when doing the walkaround then there is less reason to switch. Thank you for your time.
  2. Ah right, that explains that! I use borderless gaming for other games so will definitely use it for FSX too. Thanks again, I cant wait to get back to my Cessna tomorrow after work! :)
  3. wow, thank you for the quick response! :) I did notice ezdok left loads of files and had to delete them manually, it seems ezdok does not want to be uninstalled! I made the mistake of verifying FSX:SE and now it seems to be downloading the whole game again! I will definitely post again and let you know how it goes when i reinstall everything. EDIT: I didn't need to reinstall everything else thankfully! I reinstalled the C172 as you suggested and all works great now, the walkaround is fully functioning as expected! :) Now i just need to find a way to bring up the ChasePlane window when in FSX! I have selected the "always on top" option but still have to drop FSX down to the taskbar to access the ChasePlane window! Can i trouble you again for some advice? Thanks again!
  4. Hi Keven, I have uninstalled Ezdok after using the EZCA config tool to restore fsx files and deleting the leftover folders and restoring the keyboard assignments to default as i had lots of redefined keys for ezdok. Chaseplane did come up saying to remove ezdok (even though i had already uninstalled it!) I have loaded a flight using my A2A Cessna 172 cold and dark and attempted to do the pre-flight walkaround. What happens is upon clicking the right arrow, my view is randomly moved and a few other screens pop up (A2A cockpit map screen/radios and a couple of others), Moving to the other stations, simply moves the camera to a random location either looking at a random part of the aircraft, random part of the scenery or even the top-down view. What is going on here? I am sure the problem is me and not the software as i have seen plenty of videos of it working for people though i cannot seem to get it working and it is driving me mad! Any help or advice will be much appreciated! Thank you for your time.
  5. Thank you all for the quick replies! Exactly what i was hoping for!! Thank you! goodbye ezdok! ;)

    Does updating my AIRAC cycle update fsx?

    Thanks for the welcome!
  7. Hello all!. I recently updated my AIRAC cycle for my PMDG 747's FMC and was wondering if it also updates FSX's flight planner with the latest information? It's not a huge deal as everything seems to be running okay, I was just wanting to make sure I was as up to date as possible. Do i need to install the files here: http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids.html Thank you for your time!.
  8. Hi all! I have searched for this and found a number of posts relating to VCRain and copying files from FS9 to FSX but I was wondering if I really need to?. Recently, I was sat at my local airport in the rain in the stock C172 and noticed rain drops on my windshield, which looked cool. But, ever since then, I have not been able to duplicate this, I have not copied any files (though I will if I need to) and was just curious if this was an obscure feature I had enabled unknowingly and have since lost or whether I was just seeing things! Thank you for your time!

    Rain on the windshield...Once

    Oddly, just looking in my textures folder, I have a load of "VCRain" files (moving and stopped) already!. Anyway, thank you all for your help, I will probably not install the MS files and make do without the cool rain effect, shame they took it out...

    Thank you all for clearing that up for me, will definitely look into FSBuild and FSCommander if they are better and more up to date than stock FSX ^_^

    I keep being blown off the runway!

    looks like I know what piece of hardware to buy first then!... ^_^
  12. Hi all! I just thought I would post here as a last resort as I have a problem preventing me flying. Whenever I go beyond taxiing speed, my Cessna 172 pulls violently to the left or right causing me to be blown off the runway!. I am using REX Essentials for weather and textures but I have made sure to disable the wind options in REX for now until I get more experienced and fancy a challenge! :-) I have disabled turbulence in FSX as it states in the REX manual and cannot understand why I keep getting blown off the runway!. This is obviously preventing me from flying (which I really want to do!). Any help or advice would be much appreciated, please don't hesitate to ask me questions as I will answer them the best I can, also please check my PC and Simulator specs for more details if needed. Thank you for your time!

    Does updating my AIRAC cycle update fsx?

    Thank you for the warning, I have just been reading the included documentation deciding whether or not to install it. I think I may hold off for now as I do use the FSX flight planner (though I am looking for alternatives). Thank you for your time!

    Thanks for the quick replies! is the site linked the only way to update FSX's data then?

    Rain on the windshield...Once

    I tried it again in 2d view and nothing so I guess I was seeing things as I do not have the vcrain files installed! I may try the MS files and see what happens though! Thank you for your time!

    Rain on the windshield...Once

    Thank you for your quick reply! So in your opinion is it a good idea to install the VCRain BMPs from here and then the fix from flight 1? Will this give me the rain effect without the opaque windshield problem? I just don't get how it happened once and never again! :wacko: it's not a huge problem or anything, I was just curious!

    I keep being blown off the runway!

    Oh okay, thank you for clarifying that for me! that almost definitely explains what has been happening then! ^_^ I simply need more practice with taking off in a crosswind! Thank you for your time, it is much appreciated!. I have an eye on some nice hardware which I will be getting as soon as I can afford it! sauviat: I have indeed! think I may have overlooked this small matter :blush: mystery solved! maybe I should wait for a nicer day to fly! :lol:

    I keep being blown off the runway!

    Wow! lots of replies already! B) Well where to start... I am using the stock C172 and had this problem to a lesser degree before I added any addons, and I assumed it was simply my inexperience. I have not been using this joystick very often until recently, but maybe it could be time to invest in a new one?. I have calibrated the joystick recently but will do so again just in case. As for crosswind, shouldn't that have been disabled when I disabled the turbulence? please correct me if I'm wrong!. I do not have any hardware other than a joystick (yet!) and have not modified any files (nothing has asked me to). All realism settings are exactly centered between easy and realistic. I will try taking off again using the throttle slower and see if that helps. Autorudder is enabled. Thank you all so much for your extremely quick replies, I wish I had joined this site sooner! :-)

    Welcome New Members!

    Hi all! Thank you for the warm welcome! I have dabbled with Microsoft Flight Simulator since '98 but never really got into it until I bought FSX. I am trying to work through the tutorials but they keep getting cancelled because "I seem to be distracted" one day I will crack them though! :-) Practice makes perfect!. Currently looking for addons to enhance my experience and having trouble but that is another post for somewhere else!.
