    Twin Star DA-42 Engine "Upgrade"

    Sorry guys. I don't post on Avsim anymore for various reasons. The Engine Upgrade FDE is no longer available on Avsim. However, as it's been popular (to say the least) you can get it here: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php/113748-Diamond-Twin-Star-Engine-Upgrade?p=1166032#post1166032

    Help Please Difficult FSX Problem

    An interesting problem. My summation of the thread so far would be that FSX cannot see the problem audio files. If it could it would play them. Did you get folder hierarchy correct on instal? If you were presented with addon admin allow screens on FSX startup - did you make sure you said okay to ALL of them? ...etc,

    Help Please Difficult FSX Problem

    It might be a CODEC missing. Are you able to play the .wav files OUSIDE of the sim - in Media Player for instance?
  4. Unfortunately it does look like Hovercontrol has gone. Very sad. Didn't even try for an autorotation just vanished without a trace. For what you're looking for try the good chaps over at www.sim-outhouse.com This is far more their sort of thing than here.

    Quickest Way to Clean Your Rig (internally)

    Good shout. Very, very important if using air pressure to clean either in or out.

    Lion-Air 737Max Possible cause.

    Indeed. It serves to potentially highlight the importance of being able to hand fly; what with STS going haywire with incorrect AoA indications, and in VFR daylight, the pilots role is to trim against the aircraft to produce correct pitch to maintain sufficient air speed. Which appears not to have happened in this case.

    Lion-Air 737Max Possible cause.

    Interesting. Perhaps Lion Air DID take up the option of AONS with commsat. After all, it's a pretty quick reaction from Boeing supposedly without the FDR from the accident aeroplane. We should, however, refrain from attributing cause for the moment.

    Dual boot?

    Reminds me of the time I tried running Windows on my Mac. Boot Camp was hard work and there were many bruises. Never again.
  9. Aahh, Err...(backing off rapidly, visibly trembling) I see....err...thank you the Poppet.
  10. Wow Vic, That was a big chop of posts there. Sorry we all said something - wrong. You must feel like [REMOVED] sometimes. Really hope that's working out for you.
  11. I think this: And I raise my glass to all my virtual Pilot friends...Clear Skies to all!
  12. Anyone else had it? Had it tonight. Took off in very pleasant METAR. Climbed 1000 AGL - suddenly Stick Shaker - wouldn't shut off - even though we levelled and saw IAS exceed 220. Flaps Up, Gear Up, Everything stowed and clean as a whistle. Back on the ground after an Emergency Landing - all well but shocked and pee'd off - expensive clients aboard! I call BUG! Anyone else? (We did the Rotary Warning/ Test as part of the Pre-Flight.)

    Dual boot?

    Don't do it. Run your Sim PC standalone like it's a big deal. Don't pollute it with cr*p - even if it's on another partition - it'll find it. Get a cheapo laptop for the day to day work stuff - you know - for earning money, organising your life and surfing the net, etc. I have a 10 year old laptop that I use for day to day boring work stuff, etc. It has no idea it's sitting on a black box containing my beautiful PC Flight Simulator. They are inches apart but neither is aware of the others existence.
  14. Wow, this thread was worth it just to see Kyle in Hangar Chat! Those with complaints about expensive software purchases should address those concerns to the company that provided it via the recommended portals (support ticket, support email, etc, etc and usually that's not going to be on a public forum. They should also consider themselves well and truly "caught telling tales behind the bike sheds".
