  1. Just back from an hour and half flight wringing out Golden Age Simulations' new (Sept. '18 release) Stearman. What an hoot! It's been over ten years since I flew a real biplane, so I was really thrilled to be reunited with an old and willing love. After a stall series, some lazy eights, and a couple loops I decided to see if the old girl could do a snap roll. And boy can she! Slow to about 85, pull straight back on the stick and kick rudder, and--just like the real thing--around she went. And, just like the real thing, if you don't unload as you go inverted you will spin out of the maneuver, which I did. But the spin felt realistic, too, so I let her go three turns and then recovered. What fun! Back at the grass strip I'd taken off from, Walter Sutton's private strip (WA79) beautifully recreated by ORBX, I found, also just like the real thing, that you tend to come down final much too fast (it's hard to believe you really should go that slow) so I floated well down the strip and should have gone around, but it worked out OK. Short video here . With 8000 hours behind Continental and Lycoming radial engines, I can tell you the sound is just right, and that makes a big difference to me in terms of immersion. In fact, the whole experience was exceptionally immersive, and I found I hadn't forgotten many old habits that were still useful. If you haven't experienced the thrill of open cockpit flying in real life, but would like to give it a try in the sim, the Golden Age Stearman is a great way to do it. And no, this isn't an ad--the only relationship I have with the developers is I gave them $25 so I could download their product. And boy am I glad I did.
  2. Before anything: I didn't know if this topic was better placed here or in the screenshots forum... so, AVSIM moderators, feel free to move this topic to the screenshots forum if you think the MS FSX forum is innapropriated! Well, yes. Since I did that sky textures, I got interested in the sun effect, too. Some of you may remember that experiment I did with the lens flare effect... I think there's a lot of room to do funny and cool things here. So last week I started this little project: I'm trying to do a sun / lens flare effect that looks... cool. The original idea was kind of different of what you see here; the problem is that FSX, apparently, has a limited number of lens flare "elements" that are shown on screen -- so it's not exactly possible to do a sofisticated lens flare effect. I'm trying to have a "minimalistic" approach, then. See the screenshots and, if you want, download and install the mod (but please don't forget to do backups!). Tell me what you think about it. If you find it good, i may put it in the library. Gifs (with and without ENB Series): Screenshots (last one without ENB) Download here! Oh, one more thing... if this mod reaches the library, please, give me ideas for a name... as you may know I'm not good with names lol...
  3. Hello Jim, Please could you permit me to return to this old post and, as I am no expert with going inside FSX, could you help me with a little more direction. I have run FSX (Gold Edition with FSX Deluxe, SP1, SP2 and Acceleration) satisfactorily for years, with and without photo' scenery addons. I also have addon aircraft and addon airports. I recently tried the ORBX scenery addons and, whether or not this caused my current problems, I now have the default FSX scenery corrupted, even with ORBX completely un-installed. The ORBX forum have been very helpful but I have now arrived at the stage where I have been advised to do a 'repair' of my FSX. I have read your above step by step guide for repairing FSX. I now ask, does a repair leave all my addons (photo' scenery, aircraft and airports) intact in FSX, or do I have do a comnplete re-install of these addons ? By the way, I have 'cloned' drive D containing FSX to drive F so as to have a copy of everything on drive D. I'm assuming this does not cause any problem when running FSX. Is this correct ? Thank you. Ray
  4. Well, nobody has answered me in days so I thought I should open a new topic. How do you install automatic installation liveries for the Leonardo MD-82 using the livery manager? I download them and extract them but they don't appear as available in the livery manager. Does anyone know how to install liveries?

    Copy and Paste

    Hi All, just a quick question, been Googling old post on moving FSX to New Drive. Copy and past FSX to new Driver, creat a short cut Desktop to FSX exe, Delete Old FSX. States it works fine. I no little , but surly all the registry paths would have been broken. It just can’t be that easy, I find FSX one hell of a beast. Trubshaw.
  6. I am trying to change the aircraft call signs by editing the airplane.cfg file but it will not let me. It saying that I have not got authority. Please help.
  7. Stumbled onto this fact; For whatever reason, in FSX stock settings (NO WEATHER ADDONS), IF YOU CHECK 'Detailed clouds" YOU WILL NOT SEE SPECTACULAR LIGHTNING. If you choose "Simple clouds" ... you will Made no sense to me but I did read that if you use REX, you MUST have Detail clouds checked, so I can only quess that when checked, FSX is looking for something else or specific and when it can not find it (ie REX or whatever), you lose the spectacular lightning, So, now that I have found this, I will tweak my advanced all station weather settings for clouds to see if I can increase them and of course retain spectacular lightning
  8. I don't know what I did I used to be able to pan around the aircraft from front to front and now I can only pan 180 degrees, it stops when getting to the sides, I can't pan all the way to the front of the aircraft, I can pan from the back of the aircraft to either side of the airplane, does anyone know how to fix this?
  9. Hi All ive been trying to get FSX to read from an external Drive. Now messed things up. On starting FSX I now get a message, “ Sceanery.CFG File Error. Invalid Remote Sceanery Path in Area 115. Click OK to Continue.” The start screen is frozen until you click the little box in the tasks bar at bottom of screen.Then the message pops up , click OK and FSX continues to Friday Harbour. How do I fix this error, Anybody Trubshaw
  10. Hello, I have tried to merge the posky Airbus A330-300 with Feelthere's A330. I have done everything as per a short tutorial (which I found on here), however, when I load the sim, all I see is an invisible exterior model and I can't access the VC. All that works is the 2D panel. Apparently I need the correct POSKY model, but I can't find the correct model?

    Airport advice

    So after patiently waiting for Flightbeam to come out with PDX, only to find that it's in P3v4 only kinda sucks, because I still am using FSX and yes I know it's 13+ years old and everyone is jumping on the Prepar band wagon but I'm still waiting. Mostly because of not wanting to fork out $1500 to 3,000 for a new system, and because I have a ton of add-on's that finally make FSX enjoyable, and because I can still run Win 7 (I hate Win 10). Tried some other 3rd party versions of PDX but was not impressed. Does any know of a 32 bit PDX version that doesn't suck? Thanks CPU 3.5/ 1080TI FSX+ACCEL Megascenry earth/ any many more add-on's
  12. Hi all not sure if this is the right forum however i have just installed the A"A cessna and i load into the sim and all panels dials ect are completley see through. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  13. Hi Am after some advice and hope someone can help. I have a little HP Notebook which doesn't get much use, it doesn't pack much of a punch as it has a intel core duo running at a mighty 1.86ghz. I would like to put it to good use by using it as a moving map when i am flying and also for it to show me the airport and gates when i land. I don't really want to use the progressive taxi option and hopefully it might stop me from getting lost 😀 Can anyone recommend any good freeware programs that do this, have heard of little nav map but don't know if it will show a zoomed in map of the airport complete with gates when i land kind regards
  14. HelloHow do i land at princiess juliana airport in crj700? When i am lined up the copilot says to cut throttle. Thats when i disengage the autopilot and start gliding to the runeay with a speed of 130 knots and 3000 ft altitude. I then usually land before the runway or the side. I am using a keyboard and when i approach for landing the copilot says to set flaps at 45 degrees and when i set flaps to 45 degrees an alarm like sounds. ThanksJ
  15. Hello all, I was wondering if anybody has any good payware aircraft, preferably larger commercials airliners, that can perform well on lower end pc’s. I have the aerosoft airbus but I don’t get good fps with it as my pc is not that good. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. Thanks!
  16. Hello, I have FSX Gold under Win 10 Half a year ago I installed the iFly 747-400 V2. Everything went well. Now I have installed Service Pack 3 for the iFly 747. It also contains a 747-8. Since then, my Virtualles cockpit in the 747 is only blurred, totally washed out. Maybe someone has a similar problem. Peter

    Scenery Distorted

    Hi I'm in a corner! My flight sim' is FSX and although a bit of a novice,I have for many years ran this satisfactorily using the Horizon Photo' Scenery when flying in the UK, installed as a scenery addon. I am now getting the scenery distorted and over written by something else. This happens also outside the UK. As an example, at Seattle I get the following topdown view showing the distortion of the default scenery around the airfield. I get similar distortion when using the photo' scenery in the UK. I have recently installed ORBX scenery for the UK and I don't know if this could have caused the problem. Can someone help please? Ray
  19. Bonjour à tous ! Après avoir eu des problèmes de démarrage d'FSX qui se sont résolus en supprimant le fichier "fsx.cfg" c'est maintenant au menu principal de s'y mettre :Lorsque je lance le jeu, il se lance normalement, puis arrivé sur la page d'acceuil, c'est ok, je peux naviguer entre le différentes sections... sauf dans la section "vol libre", à ce moment le jeu plante et redémarre tout seul... Je ne sais vraiment pas comment faire et si par hasard quelqu'un ici serait m'en dire plus et bien je suis totalement preneur ! Même si la réussite n'est pas sûr je suis comme même prêt à faire des tests En vous souhaitant une très belle fin de journée ! A très vite ! English Translation: Hello everyone ! : Smilcaptain: After having FSX startup problems that have solved by deleting the file "fsx.cfg" it is now the main menu to get started: When I run the game, it starts normally, then arrived on the homepage, it's ok, I can navigate between the different sections ... except in the section "free flight", at this moment the game crashes and reboot alone ...: angry: I really do not know how to do it and if by chance someone here would tell me more about it and I'm totally interested! Even if the success is not sure I am like even ready to do tests;) Wishing you a very nice end of the day! See you soon ! : Smilcaptain:
  20. I will be publishing all of my code for FSX which could be interesting maybe for someone. Here is the code to read the active camera position at any time (XYZ in meters) for FSXA-SP2-SE. Also it reads the 6DOF of the active camera. There are 4 Libs (MT, MD, MTd, MDd), you just need to link it to your project (there are VS2005 Libs). Other VS20XX Lib versions please PM me! To use it, include "camera.h" in your project and link the Lib. You need to call the InitCameras function, passing 2 float pointers which will be written every frame with the camera position and the current 6DOF. #include "stdafx.h" #include "camera.h" float XYZ[3]; float _6DOF[6]; void DLLStart(void) { InitCameras(XYZ, _6DOF); } void DLLStop(void) { DeInitCameras(); } When done, do not forget to call DeInitCameras. You can download the code here Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks
  21. Hi there, for those using Windows 10 [Pro] along with nVidia [current drivers], I was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing problems (white aircraft) with certain [compressed] formats of aircraft textures as a consequence of the corporate dynamic that exists between Microsoft and nVidia as described by this post from the nVidia forum: No, this is not a problem of the DirectX 10 Preview feature being selected or not selected, and it is not a problem of excessive texture file resolution. This is a system problem. I.e.: Windows 10 OS, itself, cannot open and/or read these certain few .bmp or .dds files when dtx compression is involved. Sure, I can use tools like DXTBmp and ImageTool to open, convert and edit/work with such files, and Photoshop can as well to some degree; but I was simply wondering if anyone else has encountered this issue with their system & OS in general. Apparently, this is a more significant and external dynamic than simply a case of having to select different app preferences, etc. I can work with it all, but I'm Just curious really; thanks!
  22. Hi everyone Can anyone tell me how to change the Flight Planner which is built into FSX from metric to imperial measurement please Thanking you in advance Paul
  23. Hi, I was going to re-install my copy of FSX Boxed DVD but when to activate it, the activation servers are not available. Anyone got same issue like me?
  24. Look time AVSIM, since 08.15.04, first post. It is possible to replace the Beechcraft Aircraft Files, or any other aircraft, in FSX with FS2204 Aircraft files, has anyone tried? Having issues setting with the CH Throttle in the BK350 in FSX, they work fine in FS2004. Appreciate any help. Regards, Jesse
  25. Recently I ventured south of the US/Mexico Border in FSX Boxed Edition and discovered an odd texture issue. Some of the ground textures as seen from the air as I neared the Yucatan Peninsula starting displaying the word "WINTER" in red and "SPRING" in green. As I continued south into South America the green "SPRING" pretty much disappeared, but the red "WINTER" displayed everywhere I looked until I crossed the Amazon. Not every bitmap displayed the red or green words, but I could look in exterior view and see numerous displays in a complete 360 circle around my aircraft. This anomaly does least hasn't yet...appeared in the US or north from there. Can't speak for Europe/Africa/Asia/Australia yet...haven't been there. The only change I have made to the region was to install the free ORBX SA Landclass, but that is a mesh file with no textures associated with it. Any ideas and, while I am posting, is there a way to find out which bitmap is being displayed when I see that? Randy
