  1. Has anyone been able to create an AI flight plan and watch their AI aircraft taxi from its parking location and take off? I have tried three different AI aircraft at KGAX, which is a stock airport with 8 medium parking ramps and with taxipaths to the runways, (the Cessna C172 Air Traffic, the TBM930 Air traffic and the Generic Private Jet Air traffic models) and while they are placed at a parking ramp when I start a flight around 15 minutes before scheduled departure, and the time I start is correct for the flight plan, none actually move from the parking and I have waited up to 5 minutes after scheduled departure. Also I noticed that regardless of which AI aircraft I use in the flight plans, the tail number is not displayed. Is this an indicator that something is wrong? Thanks
  2. Thanks HEAPS JIm. My installation had been activated BUT when I selected to check for updates there were 3 including what must have been a HUGE one as it took 'forever' to download and start installation and there were a number of restarts along the way where I had to actually click on 'restart' (not automatic)./ Anyway once all that was complete I found that I now seem to be able to download FS2020 and that is happening now. I think what has happened is that the PC was one my daughter recently gave me as it was misbehaving and so she bought a new one and gave me her old one. IT only had W8 on it so I installed W10 and didn't do anything with it until today when I decided to download FS2020 onto it. Maybe I had never checked for updates and so it was never fully installed. Now I must tell you the reason why I wanted to install FS2020 onto it as it is a slower PC than what I use FS2020 on. Recently I wanted to take copies of certain folders so that I could make modifications so that the C172, which has 3 undercarriage variants, for AI flights and every time I tried to COPY FROM the FS2020 installation (any folder, any file) as soon as I did the 'paste' into another drive I would get the error "your organisation does not allow you to place this file here". I can copy any file TO any folder inside FS2020 but cannot copy FROM. How crazy is that? I could ever edit a (text) file (eg aircraft.cfg) and update the file but not copy FROM. I want to make copies as backups should I make a mistake and much up something. I then thought that perhaps if I install on a different PC then I could take backup copies from that - well that's the theory, I just hope it works as many other users (of FS2020) have advised that they can copy FROM. It has been a very long and frustrating process to get this far.
  3. Can someone explain this for me please as I am completely stumped My Microsoft account has 'registered' my new device (see attached image - nice name eh?) yet when I try to download FS2020 it does not display any devices to install to. Actually I cannot find how to attach or insert an image so it (small jpg file) can be downloaded from https://mega.nz/file/6phUlaBD#2yERf2Cu3oQEvN1e9Yxb10ebjmt38iyHGn2j2Z2oDSA
  4. Thanks everyone, Not sure what you meant by registering NEW VERSION of Windows. Would both my PCs have the same version of Windows? Maybe it has and I just have to wait a couple of days. BTW while most of you aren't there yet Happy Christmas (I am here in Sydney as I type) and thanks again for your responses which are all appreciated. John
  5. Well now it turns out that "I am now onto this" was a bit premature. When I go to My Library in Microsoft Store, select FS2020 Standard (the version I own) and select 'manage', It then displays "INSTALL" greyed out so cannot be selected so I click on the 3 dots and select "Install on my devices" and it then displays a window "where do you want it installed" BUT there are no devices listed. I have 'registered' the new PC with Microsoft and can display it as a device elsewhere Does anyone know what I should now do?
  6. Thanks I never found that link when I (Google) searched "how to install FS2020". Anyway I now got to where I can select my previously purchased products and attempted to download and it seems that Microsoft remembers my other PC (name) - where do you want to install displays only my old PC - and I cannot work out how to "tell" Microsoft that I have a different PC where I can download it to. How do I 'register' my new PC so that I can choose it to download to? I think I am now onto this. Wow Microsoft makes us users JUMP THROUGH HOOPS. Never had so much trouble installing software on a different PC.
  7. Thanks that is a great idea. HOWEVER I cannot work out what I need to do to even start the install on the new. I never had any problems when I first purchased and downloaded 12 months ago. I started the Microsoft Store app and looked everywhere but could only find how to purchase a new copy. Can you give a step by step process as it looks different from what I remember. I can't even get it to display my store/fs username eg MrDarcynnnn (nnnn left off for security)
  8. I have MSFS2020 classic installed on a PC. I now want to update to a brand new faster PC but how do I download FS2020 onto the new PC. I have searched here but was not able to find the answer. I have logged onto the MS store but could not work out how to do it. I have my FS2020 username, email address and password. Thanks
  9. FYI I set the following OFF which fixed a problem I had with the rudder automatically returning to the neutral position and the throttle seemingly having a mind of its own PILOTING Auto Rudder, Assisted Takeoff, Assisted Landing. Why did Asobo reset all the settings, and not leave them to what the user had them set to, with SU7? Also After loosing 'history' (of airports previously selected) when planning a flight, then 'gaining' wake effects for floatplanes mid year the latest update (SU7) regains the previously lost 'history' but lost wake effects. Honestly will they ever release an update without stuffing something up? Maybe a stricter testing phase might be appreciated.
  10. Sorry I forgot about this thread. I solved my 'problem' setting the following OFF (from ON) PILOTING section Auto Rudder Assisted Takeoff Assisted landing BTW I have also found - After loosing 'history' (of airports previously selected) when planning a flight, then 'gaining' wake effects for floatplanes mid year the latest update (SU7) regains the previously lost 'history' but lost wake effects.

  11. I too experienced this problem and other problems with joystick control. I had to reverse the throttle. I just wished that Asobo would do proper testing before releasing upgrades. On a positive after taking away flight planning memory of previously selected airports in an update earlier this year it is now fixed - only took them about 8 months though to fix a bug they introduced.
  12. After searching the internet I found that SU7 reset all settings and so I went 'looking' and changed many from ON to OFF. That seems to have fixed the problem. Still it is annoying that SU7 could have either advised/warned users during the update that all user settings would be reset and to check them after the update OR better still NOT to change them although maybe this was not possible with the changes being implemented.
  13. Thanks Ken The problem I am experiencing only happens when I do a 'free flight'. When I do a training flight or adventure the rudder and throttle works perfectly.

  14. Please no more updates Asobo as I seem to get problems with every update. The throttle now seems to have a mind of its own and at idle the throttle on the aircraft will suddenly fully open and I can only reduce to idle by pushing the joystick throttle fully on and then back. Strangely when I do a 'challenge' or 'training' I have no problems with the rudder and throttle. It's only when I do a 'free flight' that the rudder and throttle act like 'zombies'. Right now MSFS is almost unusable.
  15. Hello I too am having all sorts of problems with my joystick after SU7. I find that when I apply full rudder with my joystick the rudder moves fully in that direction and slowly return to neutral even with the joystick still on full rudder. Also when I start a flight my throttle is reversed but when I check in control settings it is correct so I return to a flight and all of a sudden my throttle is fully open and the throttle on my joystick has no affect. Also the engine will all of a sudden increase to full throttle without touching the Joystick throttle and if I push the throttle fully on and then back then the engine goes back to idle. I have also noticed a couple of time when I startup MSFS I get a message "we can't synch your data" and I can then select Retry (which worked) or "Use offline" (or something similar) and when I select that it is like the first time I ever ran MSFS and needed to setup a lot of things. Strangely when I do a 'challenge' or 'training' I have no problems with the rudder and throttle. It's only doing a 'free flight' where the rudder and throttle are like zombies. No more updates please Asobo as something always seems to go wrong with every new update.
