  1. After I got the 757 this morning, I went ahead to 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.
  2. Hi guys I have a strange problem with 757-200 base package and VC. 1) If I normally load up the aircraft choosing my airport etc etc, when loaded PFD and ND are not correctly initialized, so I look on overhead to align IRS but all overhead knob are unclickable, in the same way all other knob are unusable, works only FMC, thrust and flap levers. 2) If I load up the default saved flight 757-200 Cleared for takeoff (KSEA) all VC aircraft is correctly initialized and knobs are clickable other then IAS/MACH knob, or better you can rotate it but the value remain fixed on 200. Any one has any idea to solve the matter? 757-200 base packake is the 4.6 Thanks in advance for nay help

  4. 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

  6. 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.
  7. From the X-Plane Store $47!!!!
  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!

    IRS Problem...

    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 :)
  10. hello all, From reading past posts from numerous forums its my understanding that Mcphat used to have 3 really nice freeware American Airlines liveries for the Captain Sim 757! After looking up these paints and seeing them I realllllllyy want them!!! The only thing is, they aren't on the Mcphat freeware page anymore :( . Does anyone know where I could download these paints or does anyone have them?

    Hi guys, ENEV Airport... Boeing 757 by Flight Factor... Takeoff... Climb... SkyMaxx V2... 300 feet... End... Thanks!
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. I'm thinking about picking up the QW757. I have heard that some people have had problems with installing it in FSX Steam. I understand Quality Wings doesn't support FSX:SE, but I have seen some people having it working and some that have ran into problems. What is your experience with the product and this specific sim and what is needed to get it to work?
  16. 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!
  17. 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
  18. Hello, First of all I know QW don't make official support for the 757 in the P3D, because that I'm here asking. I bought 2 days ago the Migration Tool after a friend told me it's worth and showed me the QW757 SP3 working fine. So I did, enabled, installed the QW757 fine on my P3D V3.1. Them I went to make a flight test, but the screens are black, I've searching in many forums since this day, I found on forum one guy tolding to run in the Legacy Mode will work, but nothing happens, same with running the P3D with the Migration Tool opened, nothing is working! I even tried to install the QW757 with my antivirus disable, and them run P3D: same thing! The plane looks cool, all the buttons are clickable, the flight controls are 100% , just the screens still black! Hope anyone here can help me, it's my last shot. I really love the QW757, I made few repaints (Check it out here: and people are requesting me to make more repaints but since I migrate to the P3D this is not possible by now Thanks anyway!
  19. Hi all So, I recently bought the CS 757 after contemplating it for a while. I decided to do a short flight from KJFK to KMIA. I started cold and dark. The framerate was about 30-40 (I was using bandicam). As I started programming the FMC and was starting up the plane (didn't actually start the engines yet), I noticed that my framerate was dipping into the low-teens (about 10-13). I saved the flight and loaded it up again. My framerate was still in the low teens. I restarted FSX, lowered my settings to nearly the bare minimum (kept global texture res on high though), created the same flight and the same thing happened! I decided to fight through the low fps and decided to take off. I got the autopilot running and my framerate was DIPPING TO 4 FPS! IN THE SKY WITH NO AUTOGEN AND CLOUDS AT THE LOWEST SETTINGS! What the hell's wrong with my game? It seemed that the more systems I started, the lower my framerate got. Is this normal? I have other payware aircraft but noticed no real difference in framerate. I know the CS757 can be a b**** to run, but I didn't know it was this bad! My systems OK: i5 3330 @ 3GHz (3.2 turbo... i think) GT 630 (going to upgrade to a 750 eventually) 1TB HDD 6GB RAM It's kinda hard for me to get the money to upgrade considering i'm only 15. Plus, there are other people with worse PCs than mine that run it at better fps... with REX and other addons. Any ideas? Any help is appreciated :3
