  1. albar965, Thanks for getting back to me so quick. I got it working. What I was missing was copying those files to the ABarthel folder. Thank you.
  2. This topic is 2 years old but it is relevant to me now. In the Little NavMap folder is a file “customize” In there is a file “aircraft-icons.zip” I extracted this and found “aircraft_jet_user.svg” and “aircraft_jet_ground_user.svg”. I loaded these into my editor and changed the color to a shade of blue. I then restarted Little NavMap to see if there was any change, but no, it’s still yellow. Am I close to doing this or way off? Help please. I later realized that my editor, Corel PaintShop did not save the files as svg. It saved them as jpg. So I downloaded the InkScape program. I have not tried it yet but once I do and if I manage to get the files modified and saved as svg, what do I do with them then. Do I need to re-zip all the extracted files back to aircraft-icons.zip or what. Hopefully Hari or albar965 is still around and can help me with this.
  3. I ran the windows 11 system check program and my systems was good to go except it said I needed to enable Secure Boot. I did that and afterwards my computer would not boot up. It took me a while to figure it out but I have my Windows 10 booting up on an SSD. I was able to find out that for Secure Boot to work I would have to have my OS on an internal HHD. I am not about to move my OS, Super Hassle. I hope Microsoft is going to fix this. I believe there are lots of simmers who have their OS on an SSD. Is this an issue for others on this forum?
  4. Nothing else was going on. No one else was home or on any other computers. Normally I can download a 5 or 6 GB file in a reasonable amount of time. So reasonable, that I didn't bother to see how long it was. All of these MSFS downloads take forever, even the 5 or 6 GB variety. I think my provider says we have 200 Megabits/ sec. How long did it take for your download and install?
  5. Yesterday afternoon about 4:00 I started the install for the latest update, #7 I think. It was finished at 9 AM today. A total of 15 hours. It was running at 1.5 to 2+ mb/sec. Speedtest.net told me my connection was 20 to 30 mbps. Is this about right for one of these downloads or is there some problem with my equipment?
  6. I did a little more than 2 hours flying the FlyingIron P-38 today and experienced no drifting. So the increase in the dead zone for mini stick axis Y solved my problem. Flying-Hare, you should try this adjustment and let us know if it was any help to you.
  7. Thanks for the tip. I had the dead zone set at 7 for the mini stick Y axis, I changed it to 10 and so far the drifting has stopped. Thanks again. I will do more testing tomorrow.
  8. I now believe it is my joystick that is malfunctioning.. I have two X56 flight systems one of them has this drifting problem and the other one does not. I have my stick set up so that the interior views is controlled by the mini stick on the joystick. Apparently there is something wrong with the mini stick causing the drift. If I push the mini stick to raise the view point to where I want it then release the view will start to drift upwards. If I just pull back on the mini stick a tiny bit the drift will stop. Does anyone else have a problem like this and maybe a suggestion on how to fix it.
  9. I am getting a notice that there is a new required update and to go to the MS Store to install it. I can't find an update anywhere. The MS Store says my simulator is up to date. I cannot get the simulator to start without installing the update. I need some serious advice on this.
  10. I have also started having a drifting problem like this thread describes. I do not use any xbox controllers only my joy stick and throttle. Saitek X56. I have not tried recalibrating my stick yet so I can't say if that works or not. I will try recalibration later this evening and report back. If it's not my system but something in the program a fix would be great. The drifting is a pain and drives me crazy..
  11. I agree, I also have trouble hearing the ATC. There is nothing wrong with my sound. All the other aircraft sounds are load enough. Voices not so much.
  12. This is good. I was wrecking a lot of Spitfires. I did go through the list and it does mention some tweaks to stability issues.
  13. Is the FlyingIron Spitfire easier to land after the recent update? Previously I could make nearly perfect 3 point landing but had great difficulty controlling the plane to a stop after that. Usually ending in a spin out or crash. I downloaded and installed the update a few days ago and haven't had any trouble with the landing since. I'm just wondering if the update is the reason or did I just finally get the hang of it. Anyone else had this experience?
  14. What you have looks good. I tried the GAIST MSFS addon but it did not work on the marina boats (unless I had it installed wrong). MSFS needs a global solution for boats. Just having a few in scattered ports all over the world is not the best solution.
