  1. Thanks, I never noticed that before. Just what I needed. Thanks again
  2. I just downloaded my first "big" plane, an ERJ 135. This is way more complicated than I am used to, so I decided to follow the included tutorials to lean the system. The first step of the tutorial says to start at KMWH, at S Parking 8. So I fire up FSX chose the plane and the airport, and there I am at the end of the runway. How do I get the plane to S Parking 8? Do I need to learn how to start it up and taxi over there, or is there a way to get FSX to start me there? Thanks
  3. Thanks, after I posted I found out that the callout actually is an Air Hauler feature. I was told the problem might be with SimConnect, and have been tring to solve the problem there. Yes, I did check to be sure GPWS is selected. Thanks agian.
  4. Anyone have any idea why fsx would suddenly stop giving altitude callouts while landing. I am using the boxed gold edition of fsx. I am using it with the program Air Hauler 2. I am flying an Alebeo Cessna 207, with the flight1 GTN 750. I am sure I used to get callouts to 10 feet. In fact I would get two different callouts at 500 feet, one with the female voice from the GTN 750 and another with a male voice. It is the male voice that gave all of the lower altitude callouts. I haven't made any changes recently, and can't figure out what happened. Any guesses? Thanks -- JimJ
  5. It happened again. I am still using Intel i7-4930K, 64.0 GB, and a GTX 780 with a single 27 inch monitor. When I clicked cntrl-alt-del, I noticed that fsx was using 19.3%. The thing is, other than loading in the gps flight path, I did no clicking at all on this flight. This is the event log: Log Name: Application Source: Application Error Date: 8/3/2016 11:37:49 PM Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100) Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: Video Description: Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.61637.0, time stamp: 0x46fadb14 Faulting module name: uiautomationcore.dll, version: 7.2.10586.212, time stamp: 0x56fa2107 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0004d235 Faulting process id: 0x1958 Faulting application start time: 0x01d1ee01583871de Faulting application path: E:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\fsx.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\uiautomationcore.dll Report Id: cebe4e5c-8682-4588-87d0-1435415ce61d Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: Event Xml: <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event"> <System> <Provider Name="Application Error" /> <EventID Qualifiers="0">1000</EventID> <Level>2</Level> <Task>100</Task> <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2016-08-04T03:37:49.893033700Z" /> <EventRecordID>8324</EventRecordID> <Channel>Application</Channel> <Computer>Video</Computer> <Security /> </System> <EventData> <Data>fsx.exe</Data> <Data>10.0.61637.0</Data> <Data>46fadb14</Data> <Data>uiautomationcore.dll</Data> <Data>7.2.10586.212</Data> <Data>56fa2107</Data> <Data>c0000005</Data> <Data>0004d235</Data> <Data>1958</Data> <Data>01d1ee01583871de</Data> <Data>E:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\fsx.exe</Data> <Data>C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\uiautomationcore.dll</Data> <Data>cebe4e5c-8682-4588-87d0-1435415ce61d</Data> <Data> </Data> <Data> </Data> </EventData> </Event>
  6. Thanks guys. I just took another medium length flight with all the same conditions, and it worked. The more I think of it, there is at least a slim possibilty that i accedentally did something that auto paused the game. I'll try another flight in the morning, and if it doesn't work at least, now i know where to look. -- Thanks again.
  7. I waited about 15 minutes for it to start again. No, I don't do anything while the flight is going, other than checking the flight plan on the gps every once in a while. Not sure what the "Events viewer" is. If the game had paused, I normally get a message in red in the lower left corner saying to press "p." No message there, but thanks for reminding me that it might be paused. I will have to try that next time.
  8. I did a seach on this problem, but most of the responses were so old, the links to the solutions have all expired. I am running the Gold boxed edition of FSX, on Windows 10 Home Edition. My system incudes Intel i7-4930K, 64.0 GB, and a GTX 780. I have no add on scenery.​Today I tried to take a ​flight from the Tampa area to the Miami area in the stock, in game 172. About one third of the way the game just froze. I could still hear the sounds and the prop seemed to be spinning, ​but the plane stopped moving, and while I could move the mouse cursor, I could not get anything to click. I had to cntrl-alt-del to get out ​of the game. I tried a second time, and this time got about two thirds of the way before the freeze. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  9. You have a good point there. One thing I noticed the other day, not only is P3D more expensive, but so are the addons for it. I happened to see one of the planes I would like to use, and the same plane for FSX cost half of what it did if it was ported to P3D. Same plane, same company, twice the cost
  10. Thanks, I did see those tutorials, but I was actually thinking more along the lines of the AI instructor coaching you through those exercises. I did actually find a program called FSFlightSchool that does seem to provide that kind of coaching in X-Plane. The nice feature of that program is the instructor can talk you through landing any powered plane at any runway in X-Plane. Of course you do have to get to the place where you have some control over the plane to follow his directions. I have a strong feeling that if I manage to learn how to land half way decently, I will ultimately end up with both programs. There are planes exclusive to each platform that I would love to play around with.
  11. Thanks guys. The more I have been reading, it looks like FSX actaully has some flight training missions built in to help you get started, while X-Planes kind of expects you to have at least a little experience. So, I am thinking FSX at least until I can take off and land reasonably well, then decide if I want to add more stuff to FSX or try X-Plane. Everything I read seems to agree that X-Plane has a more realistic flight model, but I am starting to think that ultimately I will end up with both. Thanks again --- Jim Jude --- that is one magnificent picture!!! Not sure what you mean by "Without the shackles of FSX, the X-Plane learning curve will be all the better for it," however.
  12. Hi all, I am completely new to the world of flight sims, and was wondering where the best place to start was. I know everyone has their own personal favorite, but that favorite may be partially influenced by a large existing investment in addons. So I was wondering, if you were starting today, with no previous investment, what do you think the best route would be? FSX boxed, FSX Steam, P3D, xPlane, or something else? I am mainly interested in general aviation planes, with some day trying out airliners. I am completely content with a program that takes a more structured approach to learning. My only interest in combat planes would be in the form of classic warbirds flown for recreation, not in combat. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. ---- thanks --- Jim
