  1. 747-400 V2 & Steam

    I reloaded FSX steam onto a spare computer that cannot handle 64 bit. I re-installed my 737 and my 777 models but the 747 v2 has no installer for steam. It keeps wanting a FSX install which is not on my system. Is there a fix or place to download an installer? Thanks.
  2. Not receiving ILS

    A couple of time I do not receive an ILS signal, even when close to an airport. I use the frequency given in the Approach page of the FMS. I have the "nearly" latest version of NavData ( I am waiting for the next version at end of month ). Any ideas ?
  3. Curious if anyone has tried the FSX version of PILOT'S Almeria Aiport (LEAM) that was released yesterday? Impressions?
  4. Hello avsim community :-) At first I’m new to this forum and english is not my native language. So please show mercy. :-) I have a problem with my fresh installed FSX, the Carenado Phenom 300, and the Carenado Synthetic Vision System. (these are the only DLC I have currently installed) When I load my flight I’m keep receiving an TER ERR message in my Garmin PFD. I read the SVS manual trouble shooting page and it says that when I receive this ERR, then the SVS is not installed or wongly configured and that I have to contact their support (which I did but haven’t got an answer yet). Firewall also allow the data traffic and the anti virus was disabled when I tried everything And as I said, I made a clean install of everything and also every drivers are up to date. Im running out of ideas on what could cause the problem. :-( Any ideas? It would make me happy :-) Specs: WIN 10 64Bit, GTX 980TI, I7 4790k, 16gb RAM, FSX SE
  5. Just got my hands on the Quality Wings 787's. Unfortunately, I have been unable to install liveries for these aircraft due to the Dispatcher error. Whenever I launch QW Dispatcher, I get the same error every time (Microsoft FSX or P3D path could not be found). I have seen many fixes for this problem for P3D, but not FSX-SE as of yet. I know that it's a registry issue, so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Hi All, I know this is the FSX SE forum, however after getting very little response on the UT Live support forum, other then a few reply from licensed users, and certainly none from the support staff, i decided to try here for any solutions to the below problem. I purchased UT Live 2 weeks ago and it worked brilliantly. Now the application crashes when opening the interface to configure it. The dreaded UTLIve has stopped working popup appears and the program crashes. When running FSX SE, UTLive initializes and UTLive is listed in the menu, however no traffic is injected and opening the schedule for the airport Microsoft events list 2 errors. The first is... Faulting application name: UTLive.exe, version:, Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.16299.334. The second is a .NET Runtime error... Application: UTLive.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. I have verified the install of .NET version 3.5 SP1 with no issues reported using the .net verification tool. All other addons, and i have many in my FSX SE, run with no problems. I find it disconcerting that UT Live and many other addons by Flight1 have no direct support contact, unlike other expensive addon developers such as PMDG. I have never, in all my years of simming, had to contact any addon developer for support for a problem. This is the first addon that I have purchased that has ever crashed. I have searched Google high and low looking for a solution and in vain so far. Any help from Avsim's experienced users would be greatly appreciated. Kind Regards Gary Scott Franschhoek, South Africa
  7. FlythemaddogX Updated

    Leonardo's FlythemaddogX has been updated to version 1.1.0. The news was announced via a post on Leonardo's Facebook page earlier today. The new version adds support for Mark Foti's Remote CDU, a freeware utility available in the Avsim library which allows control of the CDU via a smartphone or tablet. In addition, users will be able to enable/disable RealLight separately to TrueGlass, a feature which will be welcomed by many users struggling with performance. The changelog also includes bug fixes within the MCDU and external visual model.
  8. Does anyone know of where I can download a freeware canoe boat for FSX/P3D so I can take it down a river? Thanks.
  9. Hello. I have had this issue ever since i reinstalled FSX. Basically, i get a small 1 second stutter every 2-3 seconds, no matter where i am flying. This tends to happen in all aircraft, even default. I do have FSUIPC autosave on, and i do get a quite big stutter when it autosaves, but it autosaves only every 10 minutes, not 2-3 seconds. Other than that, i don't know if this is relevant, but i do use projectFly to track my flights, and i also run FSrealWX as my weather engine. I am running this on my laptop, and i have been told that i get this issue due to my specs, but i thought i'd still give it a shot. Windows 10 NVIDIA Geforce 945M Intel Core i5-6200U 2.3 GHz 16 GB DDR4 RAM 2000 GB HDD I can post my FSX.cfg and Nvidia Inspector settings if needed. Thanks in advance.
  10. REX Sky Force 3D Hotfix 2 in Beta

  12. I get frustrated at the loading times when I want to start up my flight simulator. It can take anywhere from about 4 minutes up to 7 minutes with everything I have loaded. Then this afternoon loading FSX_se got hung up for some reason so I hit ctl-alt-del to get the task manager up so I could terminate the program. I found two other programs running besides FSX; Internet Explorer and Word Perfect. So I terminated them all and started over again. My simulator came up and I selected my startup scenario and was ready to run in 4 minutes. That's normally my fasted time. So now before I start my flight simulator I bring up the task manager and terminate any programs I have left running. Now it always loads in 4 minutes. Noel

  15. I'm sure this has been addressed elsewhere, and it so, maybe you could just point me to that thread. But I've been out of the loop, so to speak, for quite awhile now. Before my computer bit the big one, I was running FSX/SE with "everything!" Running Win 7 /64. Reasonably well, I might add. A big part of that success was fine-tuning Win 7 to be as invisible as possible. No background processes, no screen savers, no nothing. NOW - I have a brand new machine running Win 10/64 with a faster CPU, hotter graphics card, and faster RAM. I've reloaded FSX/SE, and all of my previous goodies. And now I'm in the process of reconfiguring everything. And the first thing I've noticed is that Win 10 really takes control of everything. It even watches over my browser requests and decides what I can or can't reach. It downloads updates with no approval, and doesn't care what happens. This Windows Defender crap is worse than any anti-virus program. My question here is, how can I set up Win 10 specifically for FSX? This new machine is for gaming only. No personal stuff. No word processors, no email, no Facebook, no nothing. Only FSX and DCS World, and eventually Prepar3d. I don't want Windows to interfere with anything. No screen savers, no wallpaper, no background stuff. Win 7 was set up that way. Can I do that now with Win 10? And if so, how?
  16. Hello and help. I recently applied a fan-made patch to realign and correct coastal seaports in British Columbia. But now when I select Vancouver International (CYVR) as my starting airport, my aircraft is splashed down in the adjacent seaplane port on the Fraser River - quite a realignment! lol The seaplane port, despite using the same YVR identifier is a separate airport selection in the FSX drop-down. I'm hoping someone here can give me the name of the config file I should open and some indication as to what the correct entries should read like. My version of FSX is the Steam edition, so in the worst case scenario I could probably just reinstall. I'm a bit concerned though that it might reset some of the DLC content I have installed and my personal config settings. I'm also wondered about the possibility of relocating such a config file and then letting Steam re-freshen it after doing a file verify? If it helps, my DLC is; FS Global 2010, HD Airport Graphics, Natural Trees Environment X, Cargo Crew Add-on, Discover Europe, Discover Arabia and the Piper Aztec Add-on. Any help with keeping my land aircraft out of the drink, would be much appreciated.
  17. Is there a way to use flyable aircraft from the SIMOBJECTS\AIRCRAFT folder as scenery objects to place on airport tarmacs to make them look more populated? I'm thinking in terms of older aircraft like Mustangs and B-17s and the like to make sort of an aircraft museum. I can find lots of older Canadian aircraft in the EZ scenery libraries but none of the type I am looking for. I can download the flyable warbirds but how can I display them as static aircraft in FSX_SE? Noel
  18. I left for a bit and came back, originally to a white screen. I pressed the esc,key and that brought up the normal menu for that button. When I clicked continue flight the white screen became black. What was this?
  19. Hi, I wonder if anyone can help..I've installed FSX steam and it doesn't seem to fly well. I get mini stutters when the aircraft moves, turns etc. Sometimes I also get a blank screen if I switch aircraft on the ground or mid-flight. I've tried basic recommended tweaks and uninstalling and re-installing the game. Also tried deleting folders so they can automatically build new ones, but nothing seems to work!! Even tried minimal graphic/traffic/weather settings. The fps seem to be fine according to the indicator I had, so not sure what the issue is.

  20. Hi to anyone who can help! I have recently purchased fsx ss and am pretty new to flight sim . I mainly do domestic flights around the uk as I purchased orbx England scenery and the fsx default scenery isn’t great . However the I’ve started doing European flights , and the other day did a flight for EGLL to EDDF(during the night ) . I noticed half way during cruise , over Belgium the scenery went blurry . It was as if West Europe had scenery and Germany didn’t , I could see the lights from the ground over Belgium and France but when I got to Germany , and anywhere further east the scenery was just blurry (see picture ) . I reset started fsx and ever since I’ve been doing flights here , the scenery is like this in the night and day . Anyone have any suggestions ( I’d domt have any European scenery downloaded , just orbx England .
  21. When I first started using FSX-SE, I found that there were a few things to learn that allowed FS9 AI to be converted to FSX-SE and once I learned them, I was usually happy with the results. However, I had an unrelated graphics problem that demanded some fairly complex modifications to certain system files. The result was everything I hoped for graphically, but with one major "downside." ONLY FSX NATIVE MODELS will now display properly in my tweaked version of FSX-SE. That's a minor problem for civil traffic for me but a major one for military AI, which plays a large part in my sim experience. MAIW/HTAI/JYAI and some others have recently released FSX native models for many of their products and I couldn't be more grateful. But there are still some glaring omissions. I DO KNOW that it is possible to convert older models to FSX code, but I have had zero success in doing so. On the other hand, I have no problem with all the other needed tweaks such as converting .bmp files to .dds etc. I have a favor to ask. If anyone has successfully converted older AI models to FSX native and would be willing to share them, I would be very grateful. I know there will be someone whining about copyright but all I'm asking for is an existing model, often made by someone no longer involved in the hobby, to be adapted for use in a newer sim platform that is now itself about nine years old. NOTHING is changed except the ability to run the AI in FSX-SE in my system. I am especially interested in Cold War era aircraft, and with a recent sale on Skydesigners French Air Force bases, I would especially love to be able to create traffic FAF files for Transall C160s, Mirage V and Mirage F1, Alphajet and Mirage 2000. An FSX version of the model for the excellent MGAI KC135 series would also be very welcome. If someone has some but is uncertain about sharing them, I am more than happy to contact the original model developers like Mike Pearson, Jake Burrus etc. I have no doubts at all that they will readily grant permission. Hoping for some genuine help and a minimum of amateur lawyer babbling about copyrights which I normally scrupulously follow. But this is just a conversion of the model from one format to another and I don't think we need to litigate something so minor. Thanks friends Ian
  22. I'm aiming to use MR goggles with my flight sim FSX Acceleration. The goggles prefer FSX Steam Edition. My essential helicopter is Schweitzer's 300CBi. If I change my flight sim to FSX SE, will that be happy with my Just Flight 300CBi like FSX Acceration is?
  23. When I fire FSX-SE up I get a message "Scenery cfg file error. Invalid remote scenery path in scenery area 267. Click OK to continue." I click OK and FSX-SE goes on to load normally. I have looked at the scenery cfg file and there is no area 267 listed. Can anyone tell me what this is all about, please? Thanks Iain Smith
  24. How hard or easy is it? What are the steps to get it down without losing too much. Thanks in advance.
  25. I'm trying to complete a flight in FSX:SE with current (1803) fsAerodata. ILSs aren't broadcasting it appears. Tried several different airports/runways and nothing. I tune the ID is heard and NAV and GS flags are present. VORs tune and ID just fine. Curiously, I'm also thinking this problem is manifesting in P3D V4. Trying to finish a flight there and I just realized that the ILS is misbehaving there as well. It's VHHH runway 07L as it happens. So I'll post this in the P3D forum as well. I looked for posts regarding this without success. And there isn't a forum dedicated to fsAerodata as far as I can determine. Any assistance is appreciated.
