    FSX 0xc000012f error

    Hi there! I would like to ask if somebody is facing this problem when initiating FSX. Until 3 days ago, it run perfectly and I enjoyed all my gliders and liners flights on IVAO, without any problem. Suddenly, the day after, I was unable to initiate some other programms, like ASN, Landing Rate Monitor and a few others. I have attached some screenshots below. I have tried many options, but without sucess, like to download some software to remove junk files and when I go to execute these cleaner files as administrator, the same fricking error window appear, avoiding me to continue trying to fix the problem. Please, help if you can. Thank you in advance!
  2. It'd be nice to be able to change the liveries on the default AI Traffic so they're that of various real life airlines. There any way to do this without majorly jacking up FSX? I'm running FSX Gold Edition.
  3. Greetings, I'm looking to add a regional payware a/c to my fleet. Hoping to get first-hand recommendations that are along the lines of PMDG quality and work well with my other addons. Thanks! Neal
  4. hello does anyone know how to set the stab trim in the quality wings 787. everytime I do a flight it doesnt let me set the trim and i cant takeoff Thanks
  5. New for Version 2 AI Controller now provides gate-to-gate control of FSX and P3D AI aircraft during all phases: push-back, taxi-out, takeoff, departures (e.g., SIDs), enroute (e.g., jet routes), arrivals (e.g., STARs), approach (e.g., procedures), final approach, landing, taxi-in and parking. AIController “flies” the AI (instead of slewing), so AI movement looks realistic, such as during crosswind landings. The user can select “on-the-fly” how particular runways are used at an airport for both landings and departures (e.g., 16L for landing, 16R for departure). Expanded AI traffic density tool that minimizes unnecessary AI based on different factors, such as what airports are being monitored by AIController, the distance of the AI from the user, and maximum number of AI, etc. Improvements Increased efficiency and use of multi-threading to reduce CPU loading even though version 2 does more than prior versions. Better enforcement of spacing minimums between arriving AI aircraft. Many other improvements and fixes were made! Link Installation Be sure to uninstall all prior version of AIController before installing this version (backup first). Read the ReadMe1st.txt file. Also, see the Installation and Basic Usage Video for Version 2: Important NOTAMS! FOR BEST RESULTS load AIMonitor/AIController BEFORE loading situation. NEVER OVERLAY A SECOND WINDOW to look at AI instead use Views/Change Views/Air Traffic. ENTERING FINAL APPROACH COORDINATES. Do not use FSX when entering final approach coordinates for runway positions (e.g., touchdown, rollout) as the FSX in-game coordinate display (shift-Z) lacks the necessary precision (significant digits). Use the freeware Airport Design Editor X (or similar) instead. ENTERING RUNWAY DATA. Ensure the runway number corresponds to the FSX runway description (for whatever airport scenery you are using). Often, the latest FMS data will reference changed runway numbers that do not correspond to stock FSX runway descriptions. For STAR files, if the runways do not match (STAR versus FSX), AIController will choose the STAR based on the waypoint having the closest entry point to the AI’s current position (i.e., not based on runway data), which often is satisfactory, but not always. For Final Approach files, if the runways do not match, AIController might choose the final approach file having the incorrect runway data.

    Fsx .cfg tweaks

    Hi all, it's been a while since I've been on the sim and am getting back in the saddle with my new gaming PC, are there any sites out there that will customize your cfg file to your computers specs? Venetubo was who I used last but they're website never loads. Any ideas? FX-6300 3.50 GHz 6-Core, GTX 1050 Ti 4GB, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, 24X DVD, Wi-Fi USB, Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, White (ST-ARCH-GTX1050TI-V1)
  7. I recently did a clean install of FSX Gold and made the necessary tweaks to the fsx.cfg file as recommended. I've started testing the install with a DC3 Airways DC-3. Shortly after starting the flight, I seem to loose control of the flight. Even with the autopilot on, the flight path starts to drift. After about 5 minutes, the aircraft become uncontrollable. My previous setup was rock solid. I sure like some advice on where to look for my current problem. My other option is to dump a weeks of work and tweaks and opt for FSX-SE (which was recommended by others in this forum before I reinstalled FSX). Thanks in advance, Jim Driskell
  8. Ran some testing this afternoon, figure I'd share my results. The Concorde is a pig. Testing: Only thing that changed were the planes. Simple looking out the cockpit window sitting at Gate G14 at a loaded Miami City X KMIA with high FSX settings.
  9. Is there an easy way, I can find a list of the fsx airports by country (with RWY information). Preferably in a CSV format, so that I can work with the data in an excell sheet)? Thanks

    What to do?

    I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I fly into an airport that is supposed to have PAPI lights, but they are not apparent when I'm landing. What could be the problem? I gone through everything that I know, so I'm hoping that some one can answer this puzzling question. thanks mikeatsr
  11. What's the best flight planning tool for FSX? I'm especially wondering which has the best fuel prediction, specifically between TOPCAT and SimBrief. Which one of the two is more accurate in determining fuel amounts and reserve fuel?
  12. Check it out at Razbamsims. Downloading now.
  13. Fully updated using the world option and the the world option for ILS. Not the first time using it and I have had it before. But after the updating it and setup and flight plain I keep on getting an message when doing an high altitude airways "Failed to generate a valid airways route. You may want to try VOR-to-VOR or direct GPS instead" I always like to use IFR and when doing long flight or whatever then I pick high altitude airways. Any ideas
  14. Hey guys I'm trying out the demo for P2ATC. Trying to set the PTT button on my yoke. I entered the button I want to use into the box but the PTT functionwont work. And I notice that I can't use the space key for typing while the P2ATC is open. I have to use shift+ space keys toput spaces between the words. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  15. I'm trying to upgrade an aircraft (alabeo's da42 to da42-VI) but I'm stuck in the aircraft configuration file, section [weight_and_balance]. Aircraft Configuration File I need to calculate the MOI for Pitch, Roll and Yaw and formula according to the above link is MOI = EmptyWeight * (D^2 / K), it looks like I need to know the length which is 28ft and 1 inch and the wingspan which is 44 feet and 4 inch. The D and the K values are in the link above, I'm not a math or calculus person though and I don't know how to solve it. Any help calculating the values for these 3 MOIs would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  16. I just love this new GNS 750, but because I am flying helicopter the TAWS alerts is driving me nuts. How do I switch it off. ? Any help much appreciated.
  17. Every time I try to launch FSX, it gets stuck on the splash screen and says "Completing setup: generating scenery file indexes." Is there any way to solve this issue?
  18. My apologies if this is an odd question, but I hope someone is able to help me. I'm not very knowledgeable of views , camera angles etc in basic FSX operation. I am struggling to find a decent Twin Otter cockpit panel layout that I can refer to take measurements from and scale as I work towards replicating the cockpit physically. I have been playing around with taking measurements from within FSX's Aersooft Twin Otter Extended aircraft using a software tool called "Meazure". For the most part, I felt OK with this less than accurate method. What I am finding, is that the default views and basic means of looking around the cockpit typically show panels in a somewhat perspective view, so a rectacular panel may show on the screen as trapezoidal. It is difficult to get acurate measurements when the view is askew. Is there a means, that I can set a standard zoom level (.89 seems best) and when choosing to look at a panel, view it staright on? I hope I've explained myself OK. If not, and you think you might know what I'm trying to ask but need more clarification, please ask!
  19. Is there a means in FSX to display the current zoom factor of the display? Control-Z gives me a wealth of information, but not the one piece I need.
  20. Since my disappointing purchase of the b1900 from Calorado several years ago, I notice that they deliver plenty of aircrafts to the sim community. My question is, however, how can they stay in business if most of their aircrafts are always seen as 'incomplete'. Or, rather, is it technical limitations that holds them back( read, lack of expertise in aircraft systems). I am just curious to know if they communicate with their customers regularly. tc
  21. After updating my AMD RX 580 graphics card, FSX initial screen opened but had completely black aircraft selection screen. All other items worked correctly. When the fly key was pushed the screen was black and vibrating, scenery loading was attempted, and FSX locked up. I restored my computer to an earlier time when FSX and the graphics driver were functioning. I uninstalled and reinstalled an old and new graphics driver several times. Neither action solved the problem. I searched several FSX forums and found this issue has occurred in past mostly on earlier MS Flight Simulater versions. No recommended solutions found solved my problem. I can like to avoid a complete reinstall of FSX and addons. I would appreciate any possible solutions to this problem anyone may have. Thank you.

  22. Hello, I am looking for an aircraft lower than 40$ with a nice quality and details (VC, Systems, etc) and can fly long flight. I found these 2 aircrafts with same price. fspilotshop sells Tristar with 35$. Aerosoft store sells DC-8 with ~ 40$. I don't want Captain Sim L-1011 because it's the L1011-100 which has a range of 2600 nm. I currently have feelThere E-Jets v2 and Aerosoft A320/A321. I want something better. Now I am asking which aircraft is better. I personally prefer L-1011 as an aircraft because it got a range of 6000 nm with maximum fuel and can carry 240 passengers, while DC-8 has 4700 nm and 190 passengers. But I don't know if it modeled very well in comparison with DC-8. If you got a better aircraft with same price it would be great. Regards, Abdullah Radwan
  23. I re-installed the Scenery Configurator and found most of the scenery has the red triangles that show it's not the right path. Do I have to correct each one manually or is there an easier and quicker way of correcting this problem?
  24. Anyone else using this traffic addon and seeing the same issue? Is there any fix? See pic.
  25. I recently installed a new system HD in my box and did a clean install of Windows 10 64 bit home edition. I'm now ready to reinstall FSX Acceleration on the SSD that previously held it. I had a collection of scenery odds and ends in my previous FSX installation but I'm looking for recommendations for this new install. My old install had the following: Active Sky 2016 Aerosofts - Approaching Innsbruck FlightBeam Denver, San Francisco, Dullas Lots of FSGenesis covering most of the world KSEA - T2G PrecipitFX SteveFX DX10 Scenery Fixer Ultimate Terrain X - Europe & USA Orbex FTX PNW And a smattering of other stuff. I'd like recommendations for the above or suggestions for a new direction. I fly primary PMDG aircraft. Thanks in advance, Jim
