    Par3D Completely Loads But Won't Open

    No ... it doesn't get that far. It won't go into the program at all once all the scenery and terrain is loaded.
  2. I had to format my FSX/Par3D/XP rig hard drive and I reinstalled Par3D but it won't open after it completes loading everything. Everything works normally until it gets to that point then nothing but a black screen and the program won't respond anymore. I have to close it out. Any idea what the problem is? Thank you for reading my post.
  3. I just have the steam edition of FSX I don't have the box installed. I am having a problem getting the throttle control to work properly. I have CH products throttle, stick, and pedals. The throttle will not response, or when I go into the program the throttle is open and I have no control, so my aircraft crashes. To get it to work some what I have to go into my control settings, go back to the default settings, for the stick and throttle, remove the throttle axis from the stick, pitch and roll axis on the throttle, and keep repeating that process until it works. As it is now ... I have to have the throttle up a bit on the stick, then the main throttle will give me some control, but it's not stable at times. I am using X Plane 11 and I have no problems with the throttle in that program. Any idea how I can correct this problem.

  5. I 'm am using FSX steam version and I can't get FSInn to work properly I am getting the Run-time error 372 ... Failed to load control 'Settings' from FSCopilotFSInn.ocx. Your version of FSCopilotFSI.ocx may be outdated. I installed Copilot 1.7 as admin and FSInn 1.3 same way. I go into FSInn through start menu and open it as admin. I get this message when I try to go into settings. When I go into the FSX program I get an error about failing to load the simconnect. I am running Win7 64bit. Can anyone out there help me with this problem. Thanks for reading my post.
  6. Thank you ...hopefully that registry tool will help.
  7. I want to install orbx scenery in the steam version, but there is no way to do it during the installation. Has anyone here dealt with this problem? Thanks for reading my post. :smile:
  8. I've never heard of that one before ...
  9. I tried FaceTrackNoir, but I could not figure it out, I put a lot of time into it and the tech support wasn't very helpful. If you can get it to work great, but if you can't Bob's software is the way to go.
  10. For those of you who can't afford the high cost of TrackIR for $135 or more check out TrackerXP It doesn't have the 6 DOF it doesn't work the same. You have to slide your head from side to side instead of turning with your eyes where the cam can see them. You use a web cam which isn't nearly as much as the TrackIR camera. There is a demo you can use to check it out to see if you like it. Bob the creator gives outstanding tech support. He will definitely work with you to get the program working the way you want it to. It allows you to see all around like TrackIR. So if you are looking for something like TrackIR but can't afford the high cost, and don't want to spend a lot of time figuring out how to get the software to works TrackerXP is for you.

    Collective Won't Respond In FSX

    I've tried different aircraft with the same results.
  12. I can't get the throttle to work. i have the CH Product hardware. The computer see it ... the sim see it the CH manager see it ... the buttons on it work, yet it won't move the collective up and down. It might be something to do with the stick throttle. I reassigned throttle to the stick again and I got some response briefly, then nothing. Tried doing reverse ... nothing. I hit F4 it will go up, but when I touch the throttle it loses altitude. . I checked the axis assignments and made sure there was no z axis for the flightstick and one for the throttle ...still nothing ... the aircraft rolls over on it's side when I go into the sim and try to fly.
  13. Hello ... the hard drive with my FSX fail. I had to replace it. The FSX data is on a different partition and I was able to transfer the data to the new drive. I need to hook it back up with windows. I tried using this program, but it didn't work for me. I don't know what I did wrong. If any one knows how to use this software or knows how I can connect the FSX data with windows 7 please post. Thank you for reading my post. :smile:
  14. I am using three screens for FSX. I am having a problem getting FSINN to load when I go to a airport with 3rd party scenery. In order to get on FSINN I have to go to an airport that does not have any 3rd party scenery. Get FSINN loaded, then go to the airport with the 3rd party scenery. Not only that whether default scenery or 3rd party I will see it in my side monitors, but not my main monitor. In order to clear that up I have to exit the flight, then reenter it. Also after getting the scenery in all three screens I can fly to another area with 3rd party software and have the same problem where I can't see it in my middle screen but see it in the side monitor. I never had this problem when I used one screen so it has to be related to the multiple screens ... is anyone else having this problem???
  15. This is on my FS 9 computer ... the specs are in my sig, but they won't let you post it ... I guess you can access it. I have no control over the throttle. I have the analog CH Product throttle and combat stick hooked together and hooked into a Manhattan gameport to USB adapter. The game sees the sticks and the computer sees it too. It just when out on me while I was flying a Bell 206B Jet Ranger. When I go into the joystick assignments and use the slider on the throttle it responds but not during flight. I tried flying a fix wing craft with the same results no throttle control at all. Everything else works fine. Anyone else having this or had this problem???
