  1. I am running windows 7X64 Ultimate and FSX-Steam. Flights with the JF DC-8 and a freeware B-52 both have Jet engine smoke in their respective Aircraft config. files. However when advancing the throttles on either Aircraft the requisite smoke appears as programmed, but within a minute or less the smoke stops. If one you hold the "i" key down the smoke appears, but when you release the key it stops. Now all Aircraft in my hanger (turboprops or jets,) are doing the same thing. anyone have any ideas regarding this?? Thanks for considering this problem Bests; Zepnick

    Just Flight Traffic 360: worth a try?

    I repurchased JF 360X just to have the latest version (I had purchased it originally in 2010). I am using FSX Steam. This latest version has plenty of AI aircraft in most of the major Airports world wide. That being said, It does not show any aircraft at San Franscisco Int'l or Oakland Int'l., and it does not show any general aviation AI aircraft at any general aviation airport. I assume it is "operator error" as I am way too old to qualify as a "techi". Can anyone suggest a solution?

  3. After purchasing the Milvitz F4E Phantom II, It would not activate, throwing me out of the FSX Steam sim. Military Visualizations indicated that a hotfix was going to be available around the 15-17 July period. Anyone know where to obtain this fix. Thanks for your time on this.

    finding a "marker" in PC registry

    Brian, thanks for your interest. I have tried to run the Acceleration Disc installer. The splash screen opens, but when you click the "Install" another screen comes up saying: "Setup failed to initiate". There was no option to "uninstall" or "repair" Bests; Nick N.
  5. 1st post on a forum - should say that I know just enough re: computers to get myself into real trouble, to whit: I have Windows 7 X 64 O/S and have installed FSX gold edition. when I went to install the acceleration disc, window popped up saying "setup failed to initialize". I had Acceleration installed once before, but due to my lack of knowledge managed to corrupt FSX and had to start over. I am trying to "uninstall" acceleration, have gone through the: Control panel/pgms & features\acceleration\uninstall. it did not completely uninstall it. then went through reg.edit\find, and deleted any references to acceleration, or fsx acceleration. that evidently did not do it. When trying to re-install FSX SP2 (it has what I need) I got another window saying that SP2 cannot be installed because "Microsoft Flight Simulator X acceleration is already installed and has SP2 as part of the program. I'm thinking there is a "marker"(?) in the registry, if there is, I do not know how to find it. Could use any and all suggestions. Bests; NickN
