  1. Hello Andreas. Okay, I'll do that. Thanks for the Heads Up. Regards...Ken.
  2. Ah, okay. I did not realise that VATSIM was working with 2020 right now. I'll log into TS and get the info. Regards...Ken.
  3. Hi Folks. Could someone give me a quick run down on joining a multiplayer session. I have watched a few videos and decided to try at EGKA. I joined at a parking spot and sure enough saw lots of 'Name Tabs' but no visual aircraft. I started the Cessna 152 and tuned the Comms but no ATC 'Chatter'. I must be missing a step or two along the way. Do I have to be invited by someone to join? Also, at present I have no Flight Sim 'Friends'. I know, I know, what a saddo LOL. How do I become friends with people so that I can arrange a flight with them. Also, as an aside, I can't get the 152 to start from the key. I always have to do Ctrl E to start it. I'm sure that I have it set to start but it just cranks without firing up. I have parking brake set, battery and alternator ON. Avionics OFF, Fuel Valve OPEN and then turn the key whilst advancing the Mixture but no startup. Any hints and tips for starting the 152? Oh, I've also tried using the Primer for three shots. Regards...Ken.
  4. Hi Biggles2010. Surely not!! LOL...Ken.
  5. Ha, negative!! I'm just sightseeing in fair weather. I am just getting to grips with it. Cheers...Ken.
  6. Hello Al. Yes, that it. I am a bit unsure how to post screenshots but what you have is what I am seeing. It must be a slight issue with something. Not sure what though. Perhaps someone will patch it. There is a chap making some smaller Scottish airfields. I will try and chat with him. I am currently flying towards Pitlochry following the A9 road and it is superb. The Scottish Highlands look amazing. Cheers...Ken.
  7. Hi Folks. Would someone please take the time to have a look at my home field of EGPJ? The vehicles in my sim are all 'upended' as if they are sitting on an invisible slope. The real world car park is flat so it is quite disappointing to see the cars all sitting tilted. I'm not a techie as such, so not sure at all if it is 'fixable' Thanks in advance...Ken.
  8. Hello Erich. Hardware, of course!! I immediately though Hard Wired and then couldn't get past that thought. The joys of being a Silver Surfer. LOL Thanks...Ken. p.s. apologies for the slight hijack of the OP.
  9. Hi Guys, I'm probably being a bit dense here.....but, what does h/w stand for? I've been trying to think it through but my brain seem to be in thick cloud at the moment!! Cheers...Ken.
  10. Hi Williehayes52. I'm looking at the number of your posts and thinking that you are fairly new to this stuff. I would recommend checking out the purchase of FSUIPC. Now to clarify my position here, I have it for FSX and it allows me to assign 'Offsets', these are numbers assigned to buttons on my keyboard, I have the number two button assigned to the number two engine and button one assigned to the left, number 1 engine. If I wish to control them both together I have an offset assigned to the letter E this is assigned to controlling both engines. Now, I have been quite busy realworld and have not spent a lot of time with the new sim but have noticed references to FSUIPC for it here in the Forum. I will certainly be getting it, if indeed it is available for FS2020. Perhaps someone with more knowledge might chip in with more info on this. Regards...Ken.
  11. Hi Folks. Mmmm, I'll need to get the files out of storage. I have not continued with this due to the long delay in responding. I was unsure if you were still simming. I posted the screenshot as a work in progress, i.e. only the port side was finished. When I received no further feedback I stopped work on it. However, now that I see that you like the repaint, I'll carry on with it. I am quite busy with real world stuff at present and I have purchased the new FS2020. I also have two student pilots within the VA that I am a member of, so there is a lot happening right now. It could be a week or two before I have a finished repaint. Regards...Ken.
  12. Hi Folks. Is there a way to change from inches of mercury to Hectopascales in the Altimeter? (USA baro settings to European) Regards...Ken.
  13. Ah, okay. I have an LG ultrawide running at 1080p. It will be fine I'm sure but I'll probably at some point go to 32" 16x9 res at 2160. Thanks for your input. Regards..Ken.
  14. Hi Folks. May I ask why you have gone for 1440 resolution rather than 2160? The new sim is produced in 4k and I'm thinking that I should be looking at a 3840x2160 monitor to get the best image I can. The choices are many and varied and I'm not really a techie as such. Regards...Ken.
  15. Hi Guys. Thanks for the input but I have managed to scrape my car this morning reversing out of the garage. Just a moments distraction and 'scraaaaappppe' Oops. Monitor is now on the back burner. What a bummer. Cheers...Ken.
