    EZ autogen problems

    Hi, I seem to be having trouble getting EZ autogen to work, I know it is an excell file, but I can't afford Microsoft Excell, and am using programs that open such as Libreoffice and Open office, only thing is is getting it to connect to FSX while I am flying over a certain area to edit, and my version is the FSX-SE edition.
  2. Okay, I'm senile and my Google foo is non-existent today (well, as usual actually - that is, I have looked and can't find the answer)... Problem is I don't knnow where the default AI Traffic.bgl is in FSX:SE... I assume it's in a similar place to FSX Boxed, but I'm kinda lost with the FSX:SE file structure. Help? Never mind... I found it...

    Bouncing throttle

    Hello everyone, Lately i've been having some problems in my flight sim. After days of searching for a topic on this, i found some similar things but not exactly the same. I've been using the saitek yoke and throttle quadrant for some years now without any complications. However, a couple of weeks ago i started up a flight and i noticed that the throttles keep bouncing up and down. I dont move my levers but in game, they just keep moving like 20% up and down. This makes it impossible to taxi and land. I think it might be a hardware problem because when I calibrate my throttles, the thing that shows at what position the levers are bounces as well. I hope someone here had the same problem and found a solution. Thanks in advance Jarmo (I post for the first time so if i did anything wrong, sorry for that)
  4. Okay, it's been quite a while since I've posted here... years, probably. Part of that is life occurred, part is I lost my sim, computer and old files. Literally. Fire, flood and other water-damage. It's all gone. So, I'm starting over from scratch. I haven't been on this site for so long, the site has been re-designed and I can't find the "tutorials" section of advice area/threads for beginners. There are a few Steam-related files I have "recovered" from there, including FSX-SE itself, but basically, I don't have anything else, no non-default mesh, scenery, weather addons, etc. I hadn't bought, loaded or installed anything in at least 5 years, limiting my few flying hours each month to a very few, very localized couple of areas. So, I'll even have to read back up on how to do basic installs. Hopefully, I won't need to get back into tweaking things. I'm looking for advice on what to buy, download and install as I'm sure things have advanced and changed since I last did that and I certainly don't remember half of the software enhancements I used to have (and there were gigs and gigs of it). My preferred flying is dual engine GA tooling around North America on cross-country flights or flying up around a triangular area from Vegas to Denver to Seattle. Equipment-wise, my setup is probably mid-range: a Lenovo K450, i7-4790, 16Gig Ram, 250GB SSD primary, 2TB HDD secondary, both Saitek x-52 joystick/throttle setup (for when I feel the need for military speed) and a Saitek yoke/3-lever throttle setup for GA as well as a set of pedals. Nothing fancy. I'm flying with a 32" monitor view using a GeForce GTX 745 right now but am considering experimenting with a Vizix iWear Video headphone. Like I said, I'm looking for advice on where to start in re-building my FSX environment. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi, I have an issue that has finally put me to the edge of giving up, I hope you can help me please. Okay, I use Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition (FSX) just about everyday. I have been enjoying it until the point where Microsoft decided to update my computer on April 30, 2018. The update left me with a barrage of issues with my graphics in which the exact settings I have never changed. I updated all my drivers when the 2018 Update "upgraded" my system's settings (like usual after a Creator's Update from MS). Now, I started up FSX afterwards and well... let's just say FSX is unstable and impossible to use. The issues with frames STUTTERING every 2 seconds or so, FPS DROPS and TERRIBLE ANTI-ALIASING became the way FSX was now made to do. Never had this issue before. It seems like my Intel Graphics are overpowering my nVidia Graphics, even though my 630M is selected as the operating graphics for it. Why has Microsoft done this to me? Is it the update that made it this way? Thanks, Braden Bogdan
  6. I am having a problem in getting FSX-SE to recognize any of my saved flights or missions... The recent update of Windows 10 has caused me a number of headaches, some of which were created when the update made Microsoft Edge my default browser and also changed my UAC settings. (Don't you love it when MS acts as if it owns your computer and you have no say in the matter!) I'm not sure if this problem was created by the update but as of the last 24 hours, when I try to select a saved flight or mission, all I get is a blank. I have checked that it is selecting the right directory in my Documents folder, but FSX simply doesn't recognize any of the files. Even when I create a new flight and save it, when I restart and try to find that saved flight, it isn't recognized. It seems that the sim is searching for a different kind of file and that's why it isn't recognizing the dozens of saved flights in the directory. Any suggestions?

    FSX Not Launching

    So I recently installed the ReShade mod... and after doing so, FSX won't even show the splash screen. FSX won't load or launch at all. Unfortunately, I have no clue how to revert back to what FSX was before I installed ReShade. Edit: When I launch it from steam, it says "running" for about 2-4 seconds, then it doesn't say it anymore. It's almost as if it tries to boot up but then fails to do so.
  8. I have reloaded/redownloaded FSX-SE three times, and each time I end up with no terrain under the auto generated scenery...Can anyone give me a hint as to how to correct this? Thanks...
  9. I am running FSX SE with Wind 10 64 bit. In Dec 2017 I received a new Jetline Systems PC with P3d4 installed. I got so frustrated with not being able to enter most of my FSX programs, like Radar Contact, I installed FSX SE and all-in-all I have been quite pleased with it. This morning I entered cross country weather into AS2016 and as usual right clicked to open FSX SE with Admin rights. It opened to the initial screen as usual, but when I clicked on Free Flight, I got a window reflecting Aircraft Initialization Failure Aircreation 582SL. When I clicked on Select Aircraft, all I could get were rotor craft even though All Aircraft was selected. I got all kinds of findings after running a Google search, most of which I was afraid to follow. Here is what I have determined. FSX is installed an a my D drive which is dedicated to Steam. When I open the FSX file and go to Sim objects, I have no Airplane folder! If I go to my C drive, and go down to users and go to Microsoft/FSX and on to sim objects I have the normal Airplanes folder with all aircraft displayed as normal. I was thinking of just putting a copy of my Aircraft folder into my FSX Sim objects folder or just doing a complete FSX uninstall and reinstalling FSX SE. Any insight into this is appreciated. I haven't a clue how it happened. Mike Nicholson
  10. Setting up a new 1079ti system and, once I installed FSX SE, I immediatly noticed it was very slow in changing from window to full screen and vice versa - the screen goes black for 3-4 secs during the change. This compares with an almost instant change with my 5 yr old Win 7 system. I have at the back of my mind that I had this sometime (years) ago with the Win7 system but the old brain cells are not what they were and I have no idea how I fixed it. So very grateful if anyone has any ideas? Many thanks JER
  11. I recently purchased the F1 GTN Complete package and installed it into FSX SE. Recently when flying in one of my GTN 750 equipped aircraft I noticed when putting in a VOR frequency, my HSI course indicator works correctly but the GTN 750 does not show the distance to the VOR. I could have sworn this was working correctly until recently and I'm trying to find out what I did that could have caused this to happen. I have uninstalled all of the aircraft with the instrument panel integrated GTN 750s, Uninstalled the GTN Complete package. Rebooted and reinstalled the GTN Complete package and the aircraft running the installations as administrator. The issue still exists. Did I imagine it working before or is this the way the GTN 750 is supposed to work? Please advise.

    I just bought myself the beutiful Fokker 50 by PAOB and it works great. There is just one issue. The primary flight display and map are black and wont work. I have tried to find a soulution but can't. Does anybody know how to fix it? Oh and btw, I use MS FSX:SE. PLEASE HELP!
  13. I'm using FSXSE and was using UT2. I read all the hype about UTLive so I bought it. I installed it as the manual says AI. A lot of users are complaining. I had more with UT2. I got on the support page and was told don't expect much??? Really?? So I'm looking for a new AI program or go back to UT2. Just wondering what everyone else is using. Has anyone tried Traffic Global yet?
  14. so when FSX:SE is loading up, i get this error message as well as this error message. now if i click on "no" to both of them. Then Flight Sim proceeds to start up no problem, willy nilly. But if i say yes to either/both of them. it then says "The module "X.dll" has not been tested for compatability with the FSX version you have installed"......"If you run the module, it may cause problems or a crash. Run the module now?" And if i click on Don't run on both of the addons that are causing the pop-up. FSX then continues to run with no-issue, and no noticable disturbance. But if i click on "run" FSX:SE will then proceed to promptly crash. Do any of yall's have any intuition or know what can be causing this problem? Also as a bit of a background. I have this one addon called AFX that i like to use to tweek airports to my liking like change the Northwest and Continental gates to United's gates in FlyTampa's Tampa KTPA, or add a few stands to FSDT's KORD. personally i like to have that abilitay to tweek sceneries. So i installed it onto mky new gaming computer from my old one via hard-drive. Re-activated it and then got a message when i opened AFX about something related to a missing simconnect.dll file. So then i looked up for a solution and then found what i hoped would be a solution and basically did what this guy did in this video and then i wound up in that position i am now. edit/update: This post is actually a continuation from a reddit post, and they said come here for help. Anyways So in the discussion people suggested uninstalling olderversions of simconnect and reinstalling them from the SDK files. I did that and the situation didn't improve, but on the bright side, didn't become worse. Still the problem remains, i have multiple versions of simconnect and im am still searching for solutions.
  15. My FSX:SE home screen has stopped displaying the Dovetail FSInsider page and I don't know why. Screen shot below shows what I now have - and I am running online with a good internet connection. I'm not aware that I changed anything other than the normal Win10 updates and driver updates. It doesn't seem to be causing any disruption but I'm REALLY curious to understand what's happened. Does anyone know please? Thanks
  16. I have a computer that I already have FSX Gold edition installed on and I want to install the Steam edition. I am hoping the steam edition will clean up some of the graphics and give a better overall appearance than the original boxed set I have had for years. I plan on purchasing the bundle that has the steam edition plus and enhancement package, will this install along side my original or will I have to uninstall the original for the steam edition to properly install. My setup by the way is a 4GHZ Quad core, 8G RAM, PNY GeForce GTX 970 video card. Saitek Yoke, pedals, throttle quadrant, and switch panel. Thanks! George
  17. Hi All Can anyone please tell me how to Stop 'BT Virus Protect' (McAfee) from Quarantining my Navigraph Charts Desktop shortcut. This has happened twice now. I am able to restore it, but surely there must be a way to prevent it re-occurring. I use a Windows 7 PC for Navigraph Charts, and a Window 10 PC for FSX Steam edition; using a different Antivirus program. Thank you. Sorry if posted in the wrong place. Corrie

    Logbook to Steam

    How do I move my log from FSX to FSX Steam
  19. I recently purchased Ultimate Traffic Live for my FSX SE and PREPARED v4. Regardless of which sim I choose, UTL is not automatically activated, it has to be turned on before the sim is activated. Is this normal?
  20. When I start FSX-SE and it says "Generating Scenery Indexes" it freezes at 68%. If I delete the scenery.cfg and then start FSX-SE, it goes though fine, but deleting the scenery.cfg removes all my Orbx scenery from the scenery library. Starting FTX Central (I need to do it while the sim is running though, because if I do it when sim is not running it will have the freezing problem again) adds them back in but in order to activate them I need to go to the scenery library and click ok. Guess what. Stuck at 68% on Generating Scenery Indexes. Any ideas as to how I can get this to not freeze at 68% besides deleting the scenery.cfg before starting the sim every time? Many thanks in advance. Caleb

    Ultimate Traffic Live

    If you have been wondering whether Flight1's "Ultimate Traffic Live" is worth purchasing, let me assure you that it is. Other than Orbx, I can't think of another product that has done so much to enhance my pleasure and immersion in FSX-SE. There are plenty of positive things to say but I'll keep it to a few: 1. Because all the models used are FSX native, the FPS is amazing. One of the things I missed from the FS9 days was airports with LOTS of AI. Now you can have this with very acceptable performance. For many areas I've tried it in so far, I've had the sliders at 100% AI (GA and Airliners) and NO stutters or problems of any kind. Also, because the models are all FSX native, you can turn the aircraft shadows on the ground without risking the AI suddenly vanishing or even having the slightest effect on FPS. The visual quality of the aircraft models is very high - I've been very impressed with some details I have seen when getting up close. 2. I don't think I realized how much time I wasted constantly tweaking AI and trying to convert various packages so they would work in FSX. Those days are over! I can actually (gasp) use my sim time for flying!!! The only thing I miss is military traffic but I have enough FSX packages to keep me happy and the good folks at MAIW are coming out with some major FSX upgrades - all of their F16 and P3 packages are now available in FSX native models, with more on the way. (C130 is my guess)... I'm hoping the developer may add some military options. I think this is an aspect of the hobby that has grown considerably, if the increasing number of outstanding payware military planes is any guide. Personally, I would even be willing to pay for a separate product that achieved this on the same level as UT Live. I'm sure there are going to be some posts from people who have had problems with UT Live - as we all know, systems are different and there are sometimes problems that happen for one person that don't for others. All I can tell you is that so far it has been virtually flawless. In three days of using it, I have discovered ONE wrong texture and it took me 30 seconds after I found it to replace it with the right one. (If you're interested, it was the Dash 8 400. I was seeing shadows on the ground but no airplane. Luckily, the shadow easily identified the culprit and it was a single .bmp file which I replaced with .dds from another source.) I don't think I've ever posted what some might see as a "product endorsement" - that is not my intention. Just sharing with my fellow sim addicts that this particular product has been a really great experience for me Cheers Ian

    Heathrow expansion kit

    I'm thinking of buying an expansion of Heathrow, but I can see problems when I look at reviews. In FS9, the version I bought had an ability to make it so that one runway was for takeoffs and the other for landings. However, I'm not sure if there is an expansion that allows this in fsx:SE. Can someone point me the way? Thank, Gaz
