    Advice for returning simmer?

    More than this, FSX is becoming obsolete, day by day. There are no updates from steam. So any problems for example, caused from a Windows update(it happened before) will be a stopper for FSX. I paid a lot for FSX addons 😭 which I have to re buy for P3d but it is something i can't avoid. The sooner you move to P3d the less money you 'll spend. And i have the feeling that Flight Sim companies are silently stopping updates for their FSX related products. It is just a feeling i have. If you own a PC with good specs you must go for P3D. Regards.
  2. Well done, I have the same issues with DX10 but while flying everything is better. You should try a b738 or a320 to see how is your performance over areas like Paris, London etc. Regards
  3. Hi Braden, how was your flight? (Performance Wise)? Regards.
  4. If you feel you have to reinstall Windows use the MediaCreationTool from Microsoft site. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10. You can use a USB Mem Stick for installation. It will install the latest version of windows. Regards.
  5. Especially if you use a MS Account to Sign in....😟.(I don't). So we can't avoid them. What we have to do is to keep only the software we really need and use. And above all we must frequently take backups of our systems. And remember...... MS is the ultimate Administrator. Regards.
  6. Actually i mean two different drives with 2 different Windows Installations 1) One HDD with Windows Installation + Sim software 2) One HDD with Windows Installation + every day stuff If you use the let's say the HDD2 the 1 is not affected. Keeping your system as simple as possible is the best way to avoid Update problems. And is very easy for Backup- Restore operations. THink about it, Regards.
  7. I agree with Vortex, i had no problems with Microsoft Updates. A very good solution is to have a dual boot system. I have 2 HDD both with Windows 10, one just Flight sim software and the other with my normal everyday stuff (I use it for my work). And before a major update I backup the entire partition to an external HDD (Just in case...) Regards.

    Maddening Fuel Issue PMDG 737 NGX

    It is mandatory that your default flight is the trike. You have to read the manual. You cannot select 737 after you have finished a flight for example with an airbus 320. Another approach is to put the Total Fuel Amount where it says Total 1 Left LSK. Also PMDG has a fuel calculator from downloads/miscellaneous/737NG Fuel Planner if you don't own one. Regards.

    FSX-SE saved flights will not load

    Hi there, keep in mind that If you set UAC to the lower setting it is not completely Inactive, you have to disable it from the Registry. Only windows Administrator account by default has Really full access to your system. Also i' ve never used Explorer or Edge. There are many other browsers (You know them, i suppose 😉) they are far more better than Edge or I.Ex. Finally you must run antivirus from a Safe boot Disk, to be completely sure. There are many practices regarding Online Safety but then we will go off topic. Generally if you feel that you PC has a strange behavior, a fresh installation of Windows is always a time saving solution.(Format) Regards.

    Light effect problem on airplane

    Hi, looks like it is working on 16bit color depth 😎. Very strange, Send us some hardware/software specs. FSX/Settings/DISPLAY. Regards.
  12. Just asking, after the Microsoft update is your VGA card driver also updated? If yes find the old driver. Have you set the settings inside NVI to FSX exe? Delete your fsx.cfg and let FSX create it again... Give it a try, you can copy it first to safe location and then you can bring it back. Usually windows updates lead to CTDs the don't mess with the performance so much. Regards.
  13. Hi, have you tried anything? The guide I have sent you is very helpful .... I also had the update done and everything was fine. Also check if there is excessive disk activity caused by other services, for some reason, while you run fsx. Also set the windows Power Options to high performance if it is not set already. Regards.

    737-800

    I 've posted by mistake here. Sorry about that....
  15. Just one more question, with those settings what was your FPS? A good approach is to move all sliders to minimum and see how it goes. You can also copy your fsx.cfg to a safe location, delete the original and run fsx again. It will be created by fsx. If everything is OK after that, then you have to deal with fsx settings. If not, something is going wrong with Windows. Also put the entire fsx folder in the excluded list of your antivirus (Windows Defender). While running fsx check the task manager to see if there are any services with high CPU impact.(Run FSX in window mode). [DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M.0] Mode=1600x900x32 -> 1920x1080x32 Also read this Regards.
