  1. Hi everyone I have the PSS 757 (bought from Just Flight as 757 Professional) and have decided to reinstall it after a few years without using it. Everything works fine, except for a small detail: every few seconds, my FPS "spike" down - I'm locked at 60 and they go down to 50. This doesn't seem much, but it's enough to cause a noticeable stutter which is very annoying. I've tried with lower fps locks, but the same happens (40 going to 30, etc). I searched around for similar problems and fixes (removing the VC, lower EFIS settings, etc) but having tried them there is no change, so I'm assuming they're not causing the problem. Also, the spikes happen in every view, inside or outside. Has anyone had and was able to fix this problem, or might otherwise suggest an approach to fixing this? Running FS9 (of course ) in Win 7 64-bit, ATI 5870 card, latest FSUIPC and AIRAC cycle. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers Antonio
  2. I posted this yesterday to the support forum over at QW and got a response (reload the saved flight). Tried it and it didn't work, tried some other things as well (saving while taxiing instead of while stopped, etc.) also to no avail. I am posting the question here in the hope that there is a larger user base here who may have been through it. I still have some additional ideas to try; uninstalling FSDT KLAX V2 & using FSX default KLAX is one of them. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Flight DL1404 headed from KLAX to KSLC. At the hold short line for RW25R the ground cart is somehow re-attached to the aircraft, even though I disconnected it before pushback. Images listed below are not posted, since that requires a third-party host, but the sequence indicates the problem. Image 1 Completed pushback at gate B 53 after cold & dark start, using external (cart) power & then APU. Notice no cart connected. Saved flight here. Image 2 Hold short at RW25R. Saved flight here. Quit flight. Then loaded flight, panel missing the FMC information, so I did the ATC route uplink again, and set the SID. But huh??? the ground cart is somehow re-connected. Can't disconnect it from the QW pull down menu, which shows it as disconnected. Image 3 In the air after take-off from RW25R. Flying fine even with the cart. Does the cart affect the aerodynamics of the aircraft? Doesn't seem to, although I would expect it. Image 4 Still flying OK but sure looks weird. QW pull down menu still shows cart disconnected (red), but it most certainly is not. Those connecting cables must be really stout. Image 5 Over Long Beach on SID OSHNN. Nice view except for the cart, still dangling.

  5. OK, so this happens with my brand new CS 767 and also on trying to run the 4.6 upgrade for my CS 757 (which was already installed, I removed it to fault-find and it now won't install back in at all). Essentially, I run the installer and it goes through the activation point to the point where you can select the directory and can press "install." Except, the install button is gray, non-clickable and if I try and change the directory it still remains gray.I have reinstalled FSX with Acceleration. I have run the free FSX registry tool from Flight1. I have used CCleaner to clean out any reference of captainsim to try and allow a fresh install to occur. Stumped, I then searched Google and found nothing on this issue except a thread at sim-outhouse that stated that someone over at the REX forums had found a fix. FUrther research showed that REX changed forum software since then and the thread is at the bottom of the internet ocean. So, moving towards asking CS for help, I then searched Captainsim's knowledgebase to make sure I wasn't burdening them unnecessarily and I found a vague article that tells me I must not have enough HDD space to install, or to try a complete FSX reinstall. Having over 300GB of free space, I knew it wasn't that so I did a reinstall. So after doing everything it says to do and with the issue still occurring, I open a support ticket with CS and they reply after 2 days with a cookie cutter answer to go and check the knowledgebase article I'd already found (and had stated in the ticket that I had followed it already and the issue still occurred). Now they essentially refuse to help, but of course they gladly took my money. I could get a refund, but what's the point in that? I want this aircraft that I've paid for to work like the PMDG, IRIS, Aerosoft, ORBX, and many other addons I have paid good money for. So if anyone knows what might be the cause, or can remember the fix on the REX forum, I certainly appreciate any help you have to offer.

  7. After several days of discussions amongst the administrative staff of Chicago Flights™ VA, we have come to an agreement. Though we have been a very successful virtual airline in the short haul market (100-400 NM), we decided that it was time to expand into the medium/long haul markets (500-1200 NM). With this decision, have opened up more than 10 hubs around the world, and have added more than 400 new routes to our VA! From exotic places like the sandy hills of Arabia, to the remote hilltops in the Andes Mountains, every new route offers lots of eye candy to allow your flights to be that much more enjoyable.With the list of routes constantly expanding, we have bought a large assortment of new airliners for the new routes. These aircraft are primarily the Boeing 747, 757, 767, the Airbus A321 and the A380, along with reliable and trusty MD-11. You can view a listing of our current routes HERE, or view the new and improved interactive map HERE to witness the massive labyrinth of routes. To see the network and operate the interactive map, simply click on the airport markers on the map! We look forward to seeing you joining our virtual airline! To get started, please apply here… http://chicagoflight...VAFS&op=pre-app Please note that pilots who join our virtual airline will have to fly a minimum of successful 15 flights before they will become eligible to fly the heavy jets. Upon completion of this minimal task, pilots would then be able to switch to the hub of their choice.We hope to see you fling high over the Chi-Town sky!iheart707
  8. I have recently installed the Quality Wings 757 onto my laptop, and it is registered and seems to work fine except for the FMC. The FMC seems to be having a problem displaying certain text. The IDENT Page shows everything correctly as well as my up to date AIRAC Cycle of 1509. However when I proceed to the next page, the REF Airport section is blank and does not let me type anything on that page. The SID's and STAR's also don't appear. But if I click randomly on the SID/STAR Page, they do appear on the RTE, so its like the text is there but invisible. I am wondering if this could be a problem with a certain gauge file that is missing, but really can't seem to find the problem! Any help is appreciated. I am running Windows 10. Thank you! Regards, Chris P.S. If you are interested in seeing what the FMC looks like, reply asking for a picture. Thanks!

  10. Hey all, I need a 757 for P3D, it's by far by favorite transport category aircraft. I had the Quality wings version, but all it did was constantly overspeed and the throttles wouldn't decrease thrust until way after reaching an altitude restriction. If possible, can someone tell me if this has been fixed or if there is a fix for this? Qualitywings support is abysmal. I'm using a Goflight TQ6 with a registered FSUIPC copy if that helps. I'm interested in the Captain Sim version as well, and while I understand it isn't PMDG or FSL quality, is this going to have all of the essential systems functioning correctly (including vnav) and does it have realistic flight dynamics? I've heard some complaints which is why I am skeptical. Please help if you can. Thank you!
  11. Hi! So, I was flying the Captain Sim 757 from KJFK to KMIA. The game crashed (because of the poorly programmed CS757) but I luckily had a saved flight. However, the IRS wasn't aligned and I obviously couldn't re-align it mid flight to use the autopilot. The IRS alignment doesnt save apparently. I realized that this problem occurs only with the CS757. The NGX is fine when i load a saved flight. Does anybody have any suggestions what to do? It's annoying having to re-do a 5 hour flight all over again. This plane is really annoying me. Crashing the game, stupidly low fps, weird FMC, etc. Any help is appreciated :)
  12. Hi guys, ENEV Airport... Boeing 757 by Flight Factor... Takeoff... Climb... SkyMaxx V2... 300 feet... End... Thanks!
  13. After I got the 757 this morning, I went ahead to https://live-cockpits.weebly.com/ to get the 757 profiles, thinking it would be as easy as the other planes,but realizing I didn't see the 757 on the list, I took to the readme.txt. Then on forward the only successful model was the PW variant, while the RR could not have its model loaded as shown here. and tinkering with the PW, it wouldn't budge to load textures as shown This using the Live cockpits profile Then here using a custom profile I came up with My Graphics Card is a NVIDIA GTX 750 ti if that helps This is from the same day as the pictures were taken above.
  14. 757 v2 with x-plane 11pb15. I have lost nosewheel steering. When you displace the rudder pedal the rudder moves, the tiller moves in the cockpit, but the nosewheels do not move. Using MFG Crosswind Rudders. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks
  15. I'm using the FF 757 v2 on x-plane 11. I have assigned the reverse thrust to a button on my saitek throttle, using "hold throttle reverse at max". I am only getting the right engine to reverse. Any ideas out there?? I don't understand all the thrust reverse #1-8 choices. Thanks

  17. Hello all, I am trying to decide whether to get the new 757 v2 or the 727 v2. I fly on PE and Vatsim and with the PE expansion am looking for a new aircraft. What are the pros and cons for both. They are both about the same price so that isn't a factor. What would you pick between the choice of them? Thanks, Benjamin
  18. Hi all, I've tried to install the qualitywings 757 v1.3 in p3d by copying and pasting all the files of the 757 from fsx to my p3d folder. But I when I load up the airplane everything works except for the fmc and the screens (they're all black). Does someone knows a solution for this? Thanks in advance!
  19. Hello, I have been busy getting familiar with the PMDG aircrafts but still want to have a 757, one of my most favorite aircraft. I want to ask about FSX Qualitywings 757. I know the system depth can not compare to PMDG, and the VC showing it's age. I can handle that. I just want to know if there are known big issues/bugs that can lead to CTD or unusable? I am curious about the performance(FPS,VAS), saving panel state with all functions properly, can I fly SID/STARS? Does it work normally with FSX:SE? Has anything been updated since Fs9 version of this? Cheers. Hoang Le
