    Believe it or not, I just discovered today that the default A-321 has autoland capabilities. I just did a hands-off landing at KSFO runway 28 right. I let the autopilot, in conjunction with the ILS/Glideslope and proper flaps, autothrottle speed setting, bring me down to the runway with a near perfect landing. Learn sumptin new every day!
  2. I also found a gauge in the Gauges folder called

    Unchecked DX10 in your settings.

    OK, that explains it pretty good. What you are seeing in the "Select Aircraft" page is just a .JPG picture called a thumbnail that is in the texture folder of that aircraft. What gets displayed, like in my screenshot, is how the aircraft will appear when you start the flight. What software is your dad planning to reinstall? Keep in mind that if his FSX installation does not have Service Pack 2 (SP2) installed, the aircraft will not show properly.

    Just to make sure we are on the same page..... You said you see the Otter fully before hitting "Fly Now". I'm using my freeware Otter in the screenshot. You see something like this? If so, you should see similar when starting your flight.

    You can check in Control Panel Add/Remove Programs to see if SP2 is installed under Microsoft Flight Simulator X. DX10 would be in your FSX/Settings/Customize/Graphics page Above Lens Flare and Light Bloom If your system is capable of using it.

    Sounds like the auto throttle is on also. Sounds like you need to setup a new default flight with everything except Avionics switch turned off. Then save it and check the box "Save as Default Filght".

    The OTTER one! DHC-3 Otter

    Did you see the plane when you chose it to fly, or is that what you are describing? Your thread is tagged as FSX, not steam, so I need to ask if you have Acceleration or at least SP2? DX10 unchecked in your settings?

    I also run it with FSX SP2 on a computer that's rubberband powered!

    How about this one? Sure can't beat the price!

    Hi Jim, OK, but I still think it won't hurt to try. If it doesn't accomplish anything then maybe a graphics driver or card problem if adjusting any of the other sliders to recommended specs doesn't help? Hope the OP isn't running an overheated Laptop or a dusty dirty computer that's sitting on the floor sucking up the yuk!

    Try your Autogen slider maxed out!
  14. FSX-MS

    Last thing I can think of is to make sure your Scenery Complexity slider is set to max and maybe also the Autogen slider. See if that helps.

    It may only be the installation of that scenery. I just looked all around that similar area at the end of runway 31. From every angle it looks OK. Do you have the scenery at the top of your Library?
