    Oldtimer needs PC buying help

    I still fly FSX and the only thing bothering me sometimes are blurries. But I read posts form P3D users and better hardware complaining of the same things. Another option is not upgrading and just enjoy your simulator.

    onedrive and w10

    Don't remember the details but had same problem and the solution was related to disable the password in windows 10. Which is not an obvious thing to do either. It is possible because I have my win7 and win10 talking to each other today.

    fsx gold edition/ keep on getting error

    Uninstall Symantec. Not trying to be sarcastic here. With FSX you need the least amount possible of processes running in the background.

    Transponder mode

    It would be nice to have the option to fix the transpoder in P2A to active.

    atc repeating decent to ...

    Since updating to 2.4, P2A is not reading the altimeter from FSX. It doesn't see your altitude correctly.

    Can't get application to work

    I had a similar symptoms a few days ago. In my case I noticed P2A was connecting to the simulator but the the speech recognition engine was not starting. The reason was I was using an airline call sign. It worked fine after I checked the "Airline Call Sign" box.

    A Big Thank You

    I agree, this is the best ATC add-on. I first discovered in version 1 when I tried the demo that vectored me into the mountains around Las Vegas. Soon after version 2 beta came along and it was a game changer that I bought right away. It has come a long way since. Yesterday I finished three back to back flights without one single issue. And yes, technical support is the best in the community.

    File button does not work

    Solved! The problem was the speech recognition engine was not starting because of the call sign I was using. Selected the "Airline Call Sign" box and everything is normal now. Almost wasted the trial period and it was my fault.

    File button does not work

    Hi Dave, I had a chance to try it today. CPU usage is 12% and memory less than 50% but still never finishes filing the plan. It sees if I change the freq in the radio, sees my location but still doesn't show the plane icon on the map, and doesn't play atis. I wonder if it requires a service that is disabled on this computer. Is there a log where it will show fails to talk to a service or a missing file? something like that that can give a clue of where to look? Thanks, Joel

    File button does not work

    I always ran P2A from a remote PC without problems. I just installed the demo in the FSX computer to evaluate performance before I do the move to only one PC. It installs and connects to the simulator but that's about it. If I push the button to center the map on the aircraft, it center to where I am in the simulator but it does not show the aircraft. And when I push the button to file, It seems like thinking but it never finishes filing. I tried reinstalling FSUIPC and P2A itself but no luck. I would appreciate any tips to what the problem is. Thanks
  13. You can buy FSX SE from Steam for usually $5, cheaper than a dvd drive :)

    Top Recommended Airliner

    1. Yes 2. PMDG manuals are extensive. You do not need them to flight, but they are a great source of info. 3. Yes 4. 737, the 777 is fun but too automated.
  15. In FSX that happens if you don't check the "detailed clouds" box. But I do not have P3D
