    PC Pilot or Computer Pilot?

    PCPilot subscription questions can be sent to "orders(at)keypublishing.com" or you can browse at www.pcpilot.net
  2. Happy days - now THAT was an excellent flight sim.
  3. A bit of explanation might inform the discussion. I continue with FSX because I’ve been using it for ever (FS3) and because it works well on my setup. I’ve never tried P3D - don’t see the need for me. I tried XP10 and it was good but I was just more familiar with FSX so stuck with it. I’m not promoting any specific sim - just that the one I use works for me. Simple as that. It’s like a favourite chair - I just like it.🙂 I know FSX has a limited shelf life but I’m ok with that. As and when it dies then I’ll look at my options.

    You're unlucky; it works in my FSX:SE installation. In the spirit of trying to help: 1. Did you remember to make the adjustments in your panel config files? 2. Remember, the four switch panel only appears in 2D flight deck and not in virtual flight deck.

    FSX:SE Home Screen Has Changed - Why?

    Confirmed working for me. Thanks Braden

    FFTF questions

    +1 - using in FSX:SE. First and only time I’ve ever bought one of these “managing apps” but it has given me a smoother sim.
  7. I use FSXMAP It's freeware and if you use your linked Google account then you can add a comment to every airport you bought and it will be obvious on the map. A great utility for thinking about where to fly and setting ILS or LOC information.

    FSX:SE Home Screen Has Changed - Why?

    Braden Thank for sharing version 2 - it’s appreciated. I’m travelling for a while but I’ll check this out soon and let you know how it goes for me.

    FSX:SE Home Screen Has Changed - Why?

    Yes. Home page is a default search engine page on my installation.

    I want a PMDG 787 Dreamliner

    I really like it. There's enough procedural work to make it interesting and immersive without being tedious. Once you know the procedures then you can set goals on getting the smoothest flight or best STAR or softest landing, i.e. enjoy flying. I think its a great aircraft from QW. It's third on my flight hours list behind the RealAir Duke Turbine and Lancair Legacy - in good company!

    FlightSim Store issues

    When ORBX started ORBX Direct for sales there was a process to transfer ORBX licences from FSS to ORBX so that all future updates and purchases were directly from ORBX. You should contact ORBX for advice on how you might transfer licences from FSS to an ORBX account if you have all the information that ORBX need.

    Creating a Batch File for Win10

    +1, superb application. Can’t imagine simming without it now.

    FTX Global - Base and Vector... your comments?

    Global makes no obvious detriment in my experience but it adds enormously to the immersion. I’d say it’s a “must have”. Install it once, let it backup your original scenery files, and go enjoy without worrying about any impact. I’ve never noticed anything negative. Vector does indeed add an enormous visual reality to the sim and I don’t ever regret buying it. It is very configurable and you can simply test options until you find the sweet spot for your sim. Configured appropriately to your hardware and add-on load it will work well. I fly with both all the time and I have Vector profile settings loaded depending upon GA, tube liner, slow, fast, etc. Take time to learn how to make it work for you (which isn’t difficult) and you’ll like it I’m sure.

    Logbook no longer works.

    I had the same problem and used the article below - fixed it and never occurred again. Found in Steam’s FSX:SE Guides. Might work for you? “Fix the blank rewards page when DLCs are installed”By WWA3463

    Screenshot problem

    OK Rodger. I guess you've had enough but, hey, in case you ever try again, similarly to Charlie Aron, my fsx.cfg file records display settings as below. The extra "0" in GTX 980 Ti.0.0 is because I have a twin SLi setup - you can probably ignore the extra "0". Go enjoy your flying now! 😉 [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti.0.0] AntiAlias=1 Mode=1600x900x32 TriLinear=0 Anisotropic=1
