  1. Prior to take-off should I adjust the altimeter so that it is always set to 0? Or, should I adjust it according to the barometer readings, but if I do, how do I remember the actual altitude during landing? Thank you.
  2. Hi! I've been playing FSX on and off for about 2 years now, and have just now discovered the wonderful world of addons. Does anyone have any good reccomendations for planes, helicopters, or any other special addons? Thanks, Sticky
  3. I get the panel, but everything where gages are supposed to go is blank! Now, I have added quite a few airplanes -- feeware and payware -- and when I can, I tell it "no" when asked to overwrite something (which it never has) when installing new aircraft. But I don't know what the installers are doing. I also know that somewhere in these files are .cfg files where I could check for the gages files pulled by cfg and see if they are even there. I guess what I'm saying is, I have no idea where to even begin troubeshooting and I have no idea what caused it to begin with.
  4. Anyone know where I can find a Dah 8 100 that is flyable and has a virtual cockpit? Freeware or payware is okay. I searched this library, and couldn't find it. I found some Dash 8 on FlyAwaysim but they either didn't seem to be flyable after I installed them (they didn't pop up) or they didn't have a virtual cockpit. I found payware through PremierAircraftDesign (or something like that) but the download link seemed to be broken and it isn't compatible with DX10. I have done my searches and just can't seem to find it. Payware or freeware is okay. Thanks for any pointers.
  5. Hey, everyone. I’ve been flying a lot with pmdg 737 and 777 and I liked these very much. But I was wondering if there are any other developers of high quality plane add-ons like pmdg. Do you know any?
  6. Hey good morning guys just want to find out if the program FS 2 K 4 metar it's working and actually how to get it running if somebody can help me with this I will appreciate for the help thank you and have a nice day
  7. I have been trying to merge a freeware A350 with the qw787 cockpit for 2 months now! The aircraft's brakes don't respond, the aircraft doesn't take-off till it reaches around 210 kts, about 10 ft above the ground the aircraft bounces and finally the gauges show "unable to start qw787" Please help me!!!
  8. In the settings for FSX, accessed via the 'Customize' tab, there is a tick-box for 'Flying Tips'. Like all these selectable settings it must (?) alter an entry in the fsx.cfg file. For the life of me I can't stop these tips from appearing on screen even though the tick-box is not selected. I've checked, every time they appear, and the tick box is not selected; I've looked at the fsx.cfg file and can't find anything there, in fact I can't find a specific line entry for 'flying tips'. Should there be one, or is it labelled something more obscure? I assume any entry against it would be null or 0 to prevent the tips from appearing? Anyone, please? Andrew
  9. Check it out at Razbamsims. Downloading now.
  10. Hey guys, I have a weird and frankly frustrating problem when I switch views (side windows, nearest airport tower) and then go back to my main view, see the pictures below: Let me know if you can't see the pictures. Sometimes my game freezes and I am sent back to Windows, other times it takes up to a minute to go back to a normal sky, a fully textured plane etc. I tried lowering my settings like scenery density but to no avail. What can I do? Here are my computer specs though I doubt they are the issue here: Windows 10 Ultra Gamer AMD 5 3600X-2060 Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600x (6 x 3,8 GHz) CPU Cooler: AMD Boxed RAM: 16 GB DD4R 2666 MHz/ Max. 64 GB GPU: NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2060/ 6 GB GDDR6 SSD: 1 TB Intel/ NVMe M.2 Adaptor: Cooler Master 600 Watt (80 PLUS) I have NO idea how to fix this, I asked for some help on another forum. I am not familiar with CPU, Nvidia and such nor do I know how to find FSX on my task manager or install any editors that could help me get rid of this so any concrete help or instructional video would help.
  11. Hi all not sure if anyone has the file still... But since the hovercontrol website has been down I can't get the ICARO aw139 base pack for fsx / fs9. Does anyone still have the file would be great if someone to send it to me , I had it also but my hard drive crashed and had to reinstall back addons I backed up. But yeah would be great if someone has it the base pack and the addon packs with it. Regards André
  12. Hello What would be the most realistic Airbus 320 plugin/software for Flight Simulator X. Due to a limited budget, my home PC does not meet FS 2020 requirements, and I have to use FSX, which I am being told is still a great program. Any help is appreciated. Thank you
  13. Actually, I'm having trouble activating FSX Acceleration in Windows 10. After fiddling around with activate.exe for about 20 minutes the activation window finally popped up and I was able to enter my product key for FSX. I then installed FSX Acceleration expecting but so far have been unable to get activate.exe to run so I can enter it's product key. Running it in Windows XP compatibility mode and as administrator has so far been unsuccessful as it apparently was with FSX itself (actually, I'm not quite sure how I managed to get activate.exe to run so I could activate FSX!). Reinstalling/repairing FSX might have been what finally caused activiate.exe to finally run but doing the same with FSX Acceleration so far has not worked. I found some info on line about editing the registry that might get activate.exe to run but I'm extremely leery about mucking around with the registry. I would very much like to know if there is a way to get activate.exe to run under Windows 10 so I can avoid mucking around with the registry. All this difficulty I'm having activating FSX and FSX Acceleration in Windows 10 is strange as I don't recall having any problems activating either under Windows 7 (which I despised so much so I went back to Windows XP). Any help getting FSX Acceleration activated under Windows 10 would very much be appreciated!
  14. Hello, my lights stopped working suddenly on default aircraft and A2A one's. After many hours and installing 2nd FSX I found the issue It's /FSX/Textures file corruptionI was able to break the 2nd FSX just by swapping them. Then I transwered the new "original" texture to the old FSX.That one would be working, but I ran the DX10 fixer, which broke the old one aswell (so I have 2 broken now )And I'm also sure the DX10 fixer broke it.This is the error it gave me (DX fixer)Do I have the fixer badly set up?Also, I got this interesting iluminati sign heheSpoiler alert Thanks,Domi
  15. Imagine, I get a new PC and I want to transfer FSX planes to the new FSX. I for whatever reason only have the files of the planes, not the installers (things like A2A, Carenado, Rikoo, PMDG) Is there a way to transfer them? Thanks, Domi
  16. HI Folks; Recently I have been experiencing sporadic FSX crashes (FSX ran into an issue which will cause it to close). I have been getting it once every 5 or 6 flights (no rhyme nor reason) and I really can't pinpoint exactly what if a specific app could be causing it. Each time I get it the event log are the same. Maybe someone on the forum may have had similar issues and can provide some input and or advice as to what the problem might be. Maybe I need an updated version. Not sure if there are conflicts with .Net Runtime app and other add-on apps that use it. There are no errors from the other apps which are Active Sky x; PMDG 747-8; Pro ATC x and FS2Crew. I am running Windows 7 Pro (64 bit).I get no OOM errors and my FPS are great and my flights are very smooth hence the reason why I am still running FSX😊 Here are the errors from the event log. .Net Runtime General Tab: Application: fsx.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. Exception Info: exception code c0000005, exception address 61A4B342 Details Tab: Application: fsx.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

  17. Hello everyone, since flying in Norway and Alaska in FSX, I wanted to spot the Aurora Borealis aka the Northern lights. Yes, I did scan the whole internet, but there is not much to find. I know they were in fs2004 and 2002. And yes, they definitely should be in FSX. I saw the files and even downloaded the free Night Sky HD addon, that adds new textures for the aurora ( you can even choose which one do you want). And no, I don't want Envtex, and I'd like to keep it free. Many hours in these regions were spent without success. Today, I downloaded a mission that should add it just to test it out. Nothing. I will try it with the original textures again, but that doesn't seem to be the issue I think. I also saw a youtube video with aurora and the guy edited aircraft.cfg to show the effect instead of smoke. I tried that, but no output (even tried pressing "I" which he was talking about, I don't see any smoke in other planes while pressing "I" anyways tho). Waiting for the guys further reply's. So, who of you saw the aurora in FSX? Did you use any addon? Mission? Scenery? Anything else? Or did it just very luckily appear? Any tips what could I do to see it? Preferably to force it, to be 100% sure they will appear for me. Thx for help.
  18. Hello, I am not in a current position to upgrade to the new MSFS2020 platform, so I am working to enable my FSX sim to last a while longer. I am using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. Memory 4096 MB. Processor Intel 3.10GHz (4 CPUS)... and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980. The video card needs to change, but I would like to install an updated replacement card that can operate within the computer's parameters. I use McAfee as my AntiVirus app. Any suggestions on a card based on personal experience will be sincerely appreciated.
  19. After reaching cruise altitude and going over the ocean, FSX started to freeze. Then, it stops freezing but only for a few seconds before it freezes again. Then it keeps on doing it in a loop. VAS usage is only 200MB so that is not the issue.
  20. When I started making flight sim videos I thought it would be easy, you know how hard could it be? Here are a few things I had to do so I could get started . I'm using Win 7 on a quad core PC with 8 gig of RAM. Old tech now, I built it 7 years ago . First I had to go into windows advanced system settings and turn off all the win 7 frills. Win 7 runs FSX much better with all that stuff turned off. Then go into my video editing software ( Started with Vegas 12 and upgraded to Vegas Pro 16 ) and configured it a several times before getting the best settings for my system. For rendering the videos I have opted for 60 FPS , turned off the re-sampling. I had to go to the internet and find the best codec for Vegas. I had to buy , install , and configure bandicam , I set it to 60 FPS. I went with bandicam over Fraps because bandicam gave me the option to save the recordings in AVI or mp-4 , Fraps only gave me AVI. I prefer mp-4. Then I had to configure FSX . I re-configured FSX several times until I got it running smooth as I could. On my system it works best at 60 FPS trilinear and anti aliasing turned on. I also found that on my system it is best to turn the internet off. Then I had the crazy idea to start a youtube channel, wow I didn't realize there were 20 trillion other FSX channels , LOL just kidding about the 20 trillion but there are quite a few. I decided to do mostly landings. I try to keep the videos under 6 minutes even though there a few that are longer. Here is a link for anyone interested in checking out my youtube channel. Feel free to chime in with your experiences making flight sim videos. 52Zebra 😊 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_TC2C7X1ros54wGJeo21Rw...
  21. Hello! I need to clear some space on my C drive. I have both FS9 and FSX installed on the C drive. I have not used FS9 for a long time and likely will not use in the near future. So.............the question. If I uninstall FS9 will that impact any operations within FSX? Thanks in advance for suggestions etc.

If someone can help i would be very grateful and also i have tried evrithina also reinstalled the game thank you.
  23. Hi, Please put a cushion on the floor to support your jaw when it drops. After more than a decade I have finally secured a 1080p 22 inch monitor....a hand-me-down from a family member who now uses a high end laptop rather than a desktop. Yes, I know most you probably use monitors that wouldn't even fit in my laundry, but I have what I have and I am thankful even for that. Now that you have put your jaws back in place, I am wondering if there is now any solution to the small interface size, font size and especially the font sizes of the red text and AI labels when you go to a higher resolution in FSX but the monitor is not a large one. Yes, I have gone through all the old threads here and it seems we have been out of luck to that point - and some of those threads overlapped into the Steam era. So I am guessing there is still no solution other than a bigger monitor when it comes to FSX, or just put up with the small text. And to clarify, this isn't about windows text scaling since that does not effect all programs and FSX is one that is not effected by these changes (for the record, 125% scaling works fine on this new 22 inch monitor). Things were OK on my old monitor at only 1366 x 768 but the jump to 1920 x 1080 had a big impact on the font sizes given the new monitor is only 3 inches bigger than the old one. If my financial situation improves once this whole COVID thing is dusted (I am a self funded retiree so my investments took a massive hit thanks to COVID) then I will look into a high end graphics card and a much larger monitor, but I am probably stuck with what I have for a good few years. PS: Without wanting to get into a P3D argument,I am curious if P3D font sizes or interface sizes are all adjustable, since I was intending to go to P3D at some point down the track.
  24. I just installed orbx global and I love it but it seems the 3d night lights tend to build right in front of the plane. Is there a way to extend these lights farther out in the distance? It's my understanding that they are tree autogen? I have fsx with both service packs installed. Is there a cfg file tweek. I expanded lod radius to 6.5 but didn't see any improvement. I am sorry if this is the wrong place to post but I've tried orbx forums and the site email for support but nobody answered. Everyone in here has always been awesome. Thanks for suggestions. Scotty
  25. Hello, i'm new at Avsim so hello everyone, I'm searching for a quality add-on and realistic aircraft for FSX (Regional Jet) Anyway thanks for the help
