  1. This was last year in October. They did not fix this? It is fixable on the server side. Hard to fix on the client side without disabling Defender.
  2. Trying to download the installer for X Plane 11 of the GTN 750. Error due to a Virus. Checked in Edge and in Chrome. What is this? The page is http://www.reality-xp.com/. Is this a fraud or just a hickup of the Virus scanner?
  3. Obviously, dynamic lighting is only acceptable if you have a very high-end graphics card and low AA settings. On my system, the frame rates in the PMDG go from 45 to 25-30, in the FSL labs from 30 to 17-20. And this is with 2xMSAA. I tested it on the default airport, so no excuse about airports compiled for FSX. Unfortunately, without dynamic lighting, there is absolutely no landing light. So P3D is currently day-time-only for me, at least when flying the FSL. Every new version brings a new problem. But P3D is already under pressure from several competitors. Good frame rates were one of the reasons to still keep it.
  4. Thanks for that answer, Steve. I should have checked the manual of the DX10 Fixer. It explains everything. So as a final summary I stick with Sparse Grid Super Sampling, because I like the way the displays in the cockpit look. I cannot stand the flicker and shimmering lines of anything below it. The downside seems to be that clouds cost a lot of frames. Thanks again Rene
  5. Maybe someone can help me understand the Anti-Aliasing settings. There are four points where I can change them: (1) The Anti-Alias Checkbox in FSX (I am flying Steam Edition) (2) The AA settings in the DX10 Switcher (I am flying DX10) (3) The program settings in the NVIDIA System Settings (under the program "fsx.exe") (4) The NVIDIA Profile Inspector (I have it and use it) Right now, I am trying to override the application settings with something that looks like Supersampling 4x. To do that I created a new profile in the inspector and selected "Override Application Settings", "4x4 Supersampling (D3D only)", "Enabled Transparency", "4x Supersampling" in AA Transperancy Settings. I applied the changes, and the NVIDIA system settings reflect this, I think. However, if I change anything in this profile, it does not make a visible difference. The AA check in FSX does however. If I disable it I get no anti-aliasing. What is happening? Rene Update: I have set it to "4x4 Sparse Grid Supersampling (D3D only)" which looks really good. But still, I have to enable AA in FSX to get it working, Why does it not override this settings as I want? Another question: Is it possible to change the settings on the fly? The AMD driver does restart when I go to full screen and back. But not so the NVIDIA.
  6. Thanks, HIFI, for your answer. None of your registry keys were present. I have some Odyssee behind me. First, I installed AS16 with a trial key. Worked well, but I decided to give the AS SE another chance. So I uninstalled, rebooted and removed the traces in FSX.CFG, DLL.XML and EXE.XML. Reinstalling the AS SE is not as easy to find as I thought. In the end, I installed via the Tools box in Steam, and by unchecking and checking the box in the FSX game menu. It then downloads the DLC/364340 again, so that everything can be started again. There are currently no more crashes. The remaining topic is that I get ask to start as_bootstr every time. Annoying, but okay with me. Rene
  7. It says, updates are handled by Steam. I did an update there by un-checking the addon and checking it again, which causes a new download. However, it still does not work. Note that I had the problem before and it went away by some mystery. I will try to fix the cfg files later (removing the permissions from fsx.cfg etc.) I would be willing to buy AS16 if I knew it works with Steam and does not have the same problems. Probably, I will try their evaluation today. I'd rather have my Steam version fixed because it worked with no problems at all before. Rene
  8. First of all, I am using OpusFSI, of course. Sorry for the error. I will try to play with the Cameras.CFG. Indeed, the VC is set to 1.0, which was my error after after playing around too much to find a solution to the problem. I will see if I can find out anything about the problem. And no, this is a new configuration, and the only camera addon that I installed is OpusFSI. I am going to find out myself what I can about this minor problem. As I said, I can zoom out after I select the camera with the key. That works just fine. Thanks so far, Rene.
  9. Today I had got the following error: Pressing Yes crashes FSX. Pressing No makes ASN shut down itself after it detects that it cannot connect to FSX. Yesterday, the same was running with no problems. Any help for this? Thanks. Rene
  10. Okay. I have set HideInfoText=0 to be able to see the zoom levels. Note, that I have also set WideViewAspect=False if that matters in FSX.CFG. I loaded the default Baron for a test. Default View after starting the baron in the VC: 0.3 That is already strange, because in CAMERA.CFG the zoom is set to 0.7 as you recommended. I did not change any file in the Baron configuration. As soon as I start OpusFSX Server the zoom factor of the VC jumps to: 1.0 That has been so ever since I use OpusFSX, and that is quite a long time. It is a nice software. Starting the Camera Configuration Tool, the Zoom sets itself to: 0.6 I have no Camera set for this plane. That is very strange, and I do understand none of this behavior. Attached is my cameras.cfg from the APPDATA/... folder.

  11. Setting this to 0.7 did made things worse. It was actually set to 0.4 before. Note: Once Opus starts, the zoom is set to a narrow view. Then pressing the key for my default view improves things. But I see a much too narrow view, even though that specific camera is set to 0.3. It is not a big deal, since I can zoom out. But setting the cameras is strange if 0.3 shows very little only. This is Steam on Windows 10, by the way. I also installed the most recent version. That made no difference too. Rene
  12. I will try to set this to 0.7 on Monday. I'm traveling this weekend. Thanks
  13. Okay, Stephen, I understand., but not completely. The problem remains, why I have to set the Zoom in Cameras to 0.3 and still not see any reasonable portion of the cockpit and the window. On my system, zoom 0.3 seems to look different than on yours. Zoom 0.3 here is the minimum, and it is not sufficient. I add an image of what I see when I open the Camera I use for the pilot. I have not moved the head from the default position of the PMDG B737 at all. In fact, there is no way to get a decent view even if I go back all the way into the cushion. Back in the simulator I can zoom out easily. But the minimal zoom of 0.3 in Cameras is simply not the minimal zoom in the simulator. I imported your views, and they are even worse.
  14. I have a problem with the zoom of the camera views. This is a re-install and I had it working better before, but do not know how to fix it in the new installation. I am setting 0.3 zoom for the pilot view in my PMDG B737 (in "Cameras"), but the camera in the settings shows a very narrow view that is unusable for flying. If I actually use the camera, I can zoom out easily. It will remember even this setting. But 0.3 should be a wider view in the camera settings. So where can I change the default zoom? Is it in aircraft.cfg or in cameras.cfg? I already tried setting the Camera.002 (Virtual Cockpit) to another initial zoom. That worked. But only until I start OpusFSX. Then the zoom is suddenly very narrow. So what do you do to set this zoom? Thanks in advance Rene
  15. I recommend REX Worldwide Airports HD, which include ground textures, plus a lot more. Not free, however.
