  1. Thanks. Couple of questions: when you say "controllers", what does that include? Also, I am looking at Rift because that seems to be what I found suggested. Other brands also work well with XP?
  2. As is obvious, I am an absolute newbie to the world of VR. I want to try out VR with X plane and am looking to buy the minimum hardware, (used), required to do so. What are the only essential Oculus Rift components necessary to try it out. Thanks.
  3. Thanks Bjoern and Colonel X, it appears you were right on. Over the past few days the problem became worse so I took your suggestions, reset the power and data cables and removed/reset the GPU (which I suspect had a bad seating in the slot). Now all is back to smooth flying. Thanks much. Dave
  4. Perhaps. But this begs the question : why is the selection of "chase view mode" the ONLY cause of crash I ever have????
  5. Following is a tip from X Plane if you have trouble invoking a Garmin pop up window: One good place to start your troubleshooting is at the preferences. Move the preferences folder (found in the Output folder) to the desktop, then restart X‑Plane and default preferences will be restored. If the default preferences do not fix your problem, you can simply replace them with the folder you moved to the desktop and restore your personalized settings. Another common culprit is third party add ons, such as scenery and plugins. Try moving the Custom Scenery folder and add on plugins (found in the Resources folder) to the desktop, then restart X-Plane.
  6. Interesting. I did, however, get an email from Jennifer Roberts at x plane.com a short time after my post about not hearing with the following info: " I could not reproduce this on a clean, default install. One good place to start your troubleshooting is at the preferences. Move the preferences folder (found in the Output folder) to the desktop, then restart X‑Plane and default preferences will be restored. If the default preferences do not fix your problem, you can simply replace them with the folder you moved to the desktop and restore your personalized settings. Another common culprit is third party add ons, such as scenery and plugins. Try moving the Custom Scenery folder and add on plugins (found in the Resources folder) to the desktop, then restart X-Plane" Turned out the preferences folder was the culprit. I deleted, then reset my preferences and problem solved. I will post this in the Tips and Tricks forum.
  7. I have a frequent problem that I am beginning to think is caused by my MSI GTX 1060 6GB GPU. My system (i5-6600K 3.5Ghz, 500GB Samsung SSD, 16GB RAM, GTX 1060, GB GPU) runs X Plane 11 very good EXCEPT that I often get a crash when going to Chase view mode. There is no .rpt file in in the Crash Report folder and no sure way to repeat -- it is totally random. I know there are some issues with the 1060 such as the card will not reawaken my monitor from sleep and when I get the XP crash the card loses signal to the monitor and I have to restart the computer which leads me to believe the crash is GPU related. Any ideas? Thanks
  8. I have reported a bug with the G530 in the Baron 58 but have received no acknowledgement or response. Can anyone tell me what to expect time wise regarding resolutions of such? Thanks, Dave
  9. Erroneously posted as "G1000". The Baron G530 will no longer invoke/drag, reinstalled no help. This function still works on Skyhawk G1000. Have not yet submitted bug report as I suspect I have done something to cause the problem but have no idea what it might be. Any ideas appreciated. Dave
  10. For some reason the drag function to move the screen around for the Garmin 1000 (Baron 58) has stopped working. I have run update but no help. Any ideas. Thanks Dave
  11. I wanted to load an aircraft carrier approach and which requires new scenery to be installed. I have installed several different third party pieces including ortho scenery, XVision, HD Forsest, Mr X, etc. and don't want to lose any of my settings. What files/folders do I need to back up to return to when I am thru flying the the carrier landing? Or is there some way to keep both my current setting and the carrier approach in the same set up? Thanks DISREGARD, AFTER FURTHER FIDDLING I DISCOVERED XCARR IS A "WORLD OF IT'S OWN" AND DOES NOT AFFECT EXISTING SCENERY DATA.
  12. In xp11 is there any way with a keyboard/joystick to apply the wheel brakes incrementally other than full "regular or max"? Dave
  13. I am an old fart non-pilot with a great love of aviation. I have never had hands on experience with aviation com/nav radios but I am fairly adept with computer systems, both hardware and software. I have, however, found much difficulty in utilizing the xplane garmin 530/1000 for VOR navigation. I simply have not been able to fully understand the operational instructions provided. Can anyone give me a lead to written and/or video instructions that might be more comprehendable by a layman such as myself. Thanks, Dave
  14. As an old fart, non-pilot, aviation nut I will add my two cents worth to this thread: 1) Microsoft will most likely aim their product at the "gaming" crowd with lots of pizazz on looks and easy to fly programming as is their current product with less attention to actual flight characteristics. 2) If their FS2020 teaser represents their actual product I will bet my funeral expense insurance policy it will be subscription based, require high powered and/or MS equipment and it's anybody's guess on when it will be available. 3) In the meantime, the ONE TIME price for X-Plane 11 is a no-brainer!! 4) Hopefully Laminar will find a reasonable way to incorporate Ortho type graphics.
  15. Thanks for your response. I have seen your previous posts RE Reshade but also saw a lot of posts RE problems, crashing on exit primarily, and also saw some videos of both Reshade and MaxxFX and it seemed to me that MaxxFX rendered a better picture with dark green forest which is what I basically want improvement on. What are your thoughts about the crashing and coloration?
