  1. i'm a casual player of FSX currently training and enjoying the game I don't know if this question has been asked here already but, I want to know if it is possible to have a local co-pilot. By local co-pilot I mean a friend that sits besides me, in real life, and also control the planes functions (maybe even by using his own HOTAS system). I've been messing around with woodworking recently and I thought that build a cockpit for a plane, like so many people have, would be a good challenge. All i want to know is if I can have a friend beside me so I can make a cockpit for two people or if I should make a cockpit just for myself. thanks in advance!
  2. Hello, I have been a virtual pilot several hears ago with FS & several Airbus/Boeing add-ons, and would like to restart flying... I don't know which simulator to choose (P3D, FS, XPlane...): - I would like to fly liners like A320/330/350 B737/777/787 - What I am most interested in is the avionic in the flight deck and on-board systems (FMS, PFD, ND, EFB (does it exists?), functions like "TERR ON ND", etc) - I would need a flight planner that would generate the flight plans and import it in the simulator - Realistic AI flights, with real airlines - A weather radar - Virtual ATC Does a simulator provide all this (I would buy dedicated add-on for each feature of course)? Many thanks for any help

    I am an experienced simmer, FSX Deluxe, but never needed to get a new computer until my present one, built in 2011, crashed. It had an Intel Core 2 processor and 8 RAM, but ran everything pretty well except with weather an a PMDG 777. I will now have to reload everything (GXS, JFK, LHR, Weather, PMDG aircraft etc). What is the best, but not the absolute greatest, specs for a new machine? I was looking at Alienware since I only use my PC for FSX (I use Macs for work and home). Is an Alienware Alpha machine with an Intel I5 any good?? Otherwise, any recommendations to keep the frame rates decent? Thanks so much !!!

    Hello at all

    Hello simmers I am sorry for my bad language but i am french. I find this forum very great, I read many messages very interesting. I am simmer since 1998 with fs98. I hope which I can help but I am sure to find an answer to all my questions. i fly on fsx with many addons. Good flight at all.
  5. I tried reinstalling FSX in my Win7(64 bit) system. And got the error 1722 and 1603. I searched the internet for answers and got one fix from here: and then followed the procedures but when I get to the part where I type "resetsldl -All" and press Enter I get yet another error, which says "error-HRESULT80070005". Anybody know a solution for this problem? I am thinking of reinstalling my OS, but i want to try any other solution before that. So any help is appreciated. Thanks.
  6. Pleasure to meet everyone. Hope your weekends were full of virtual skies. Just reaching out to say hi and introduce. My name is Dan, and I hail (currently) from Maryland. I'm rocking FSX on my i5 laptop. I use it to keep myself in the skies since my pockets are too deep these days as they were when I had enough to fly an actual 172. I'm looking forward to reading posts and learning more about the sim world. Cheers!

    FSCommander 10

    I am a new member as of 3/18/2018. I haven't used MS Flight Sim since 2000 when I had started off with FS98 and thereafter started to use FS2000 for a very short time. I had used FSNavigator which to me was awesome Add-on and was easily accessible while in flight by pressing if not mistaken my F9 key It's been 16 years since I've used Flight Sim and just started getting myself involved again. I currently have FSX for PC. I was trying to find the FSNavigator again and found FSCommander 10 which comes with FSUIPC4 I went to try and use it however it doesn't appear that FSCommander 10 is integrating like FSNavigator used to. F( doesn't pull it up. I clicked on the tool bar and saw Add-Ons with FSUIPC as a choice and when clicking on it, it said it wasn't registered. I found out how to obtain registration and purchased both Single and Wide versions. However now when I try to use it, it brings up a dialogue to setup a bunch of preferences but nothing that easily allows you to access FSCommander 10 When launching FSCommander 10 first and than choosing to connect to FSX it launches FSX but I still can't switch between the 2. And when both are running the screens want to flash on me as if it wants to switch back and forth. Looking for some help if anyone can advise Much Appreciated Riz
  8. Glad to join the community! I have only started using a flight simulator this year, so my question may seem a little naiive. But here goes..... Just wondering if others have seen this issue, and any advice that could be offered. I have the T.Flight Hotas 4 Joystick which I have been using on FSX (Steam Edition) on Windows 10. I just purchased the TFRP Rudder Pedals, which I have plugged into the joystick with the RJ12 connector, as directed in the manual. When using FSX, the rudder pedals work fine and actuate the rudder on the aircraft properly, but I do not get toe brakes to do anything on either pedal. The switch on the front of the joystick continues to operate the brakes, however. I tried it on both the Cessna 172 Skyhawk and the Mooney Bravo. I looked through the settings in FSX, but couldn't see anything that would activate the toe brakes. Any suggestions?
  9. Hello everybody. I need help with a problem that i have with FSX and IVAO This is, when i connect to IVAO all seems to be Ok, but i can't see others traffics, isnt the problem with black or white textures, is that i cant see them in "Right click, Traffic section", and i can't see the traffic section too, so, i tried disabling aircraft shadows (I saw that in other forum), but i didnt work, Sorry if a word is bad, im spanish :/ That's all, hope someone help me, and good day!

    FMC & ATC

    HI Guys, FSX Steam user. great site and thanks to everyone for spreading their knowledge so freely. My question is: If you are flying between to cities and you are using the fmc and following the registered flight plan with lnav, how far from your destination do you go "manual" and start taking instruction from the ATC regarding the landing pattern?. I mean it's ok to just fly in to an airport without atc but you are more than likely going to take out another plane on the runway. if one requires realism then i'm sure there has to be a correct procedure.

  11. Back in the mid 2000s I remember being a member on this forum. However, since then life intervened and I got totally away from PC simming (both car racing and flight). Now, I want to get back into some light flight simming and I have a couple of questions (since much has changed in the intervening years): 1. My main interest in flight simming is "Virtual tourism". IOW, I like to view scenery that I'll never see in real life. So, I guess my priorities are graphic/visuals over realism. What currently available flight sim would be most appropriate for me? 2. I still have my original DVD's for FSX but, unfortunately, one is scratched quite badly and is no longer readable. So - if FSX is still a good choice for me, I see that "Steam" has a sale on it right now. Is that a good alternative and is it the same thing as the retail disk version? Can it accept patches and 3rd party scenery and planes, etc just like the retail disk version? FWIW - my PC is brand new. Specs are i5, 8 Gigs Ram, Nvidia 3Gig videocard - but it is Windows 10. Any thoughts? Thanks.
  12. Hello everyone, I've been playing flight sims for a while now but recently decided to get more involved in it so here I am. I look forward to engaging with you all. I've even started a youtube channel to express my love for flight sims. Here's a taste of it. Feel free to tell me how horrible it is Take care and I'll see you all in the skies.
  13. My first-ever add-on to FSX, on which I have about 100 hours, with multi-engine and jet aircraft. Downloaded MU-2 and it shows up in my list of aircraft. When I click FLY NOW, the MU-2 is on the airport I requested. And none of the buttons or functions I use with INCLUDED aircraft work with MU-2. The manual offers no advice of making stuff happen in FSX. I have looked at all 4 videos, and there is nothing introducing how to use the mouse nor what views do what. In the first video, the point-of-view glides from entry door to then instrument panel - with zero explanation how to DO any of that. Please can someone experienced with MU-2 in FSX explain how to START using and flying the add-on? Greg B.
  14. Purchased the GTN 750 from Flight1 recently for the Carrendo PC12NG v2. The bottom unit doesn't pop up or allow inputs. The top works except the TRAFFIC mode doesn't work. I have downloaded the most recent trainer. Only new to this so please keep it simple if you have a solution... much appreciated.
  15. Hello can anyone help me with setting up the process of the taxi/runway process before take-off/landing. I want to practice with Flight Simulator X Steam Edition. I'm currently a student pilot and want to get some more experience with this to save some money. I just bought ATC PRO X and i have NO IDEA what the word not allowed to do. Please help, thanks
  16. Hi All New to flight simming I have installed FSX steam edition, just having a click on things and looking around and what it involves. Looks like a hobby that might be having very late nights. I have downloaded one aircraft the alabeo DA40 FSX/P3D and the install was okay no issues. Silly question sorry I am not very good with computers, I work in the health industry. I ran the installer and installed several folders to the desktop....Alabeo DA40, Sound, Gauges, Font, Effects. The Alabeo goes in the sim objects Airplanes I'm assuming. Where am I putting the other folders/files? Look forward to reading the posts here.

    Hi guys ,as you know , we had md11 fsx,. .. here is my question: would you guys bring the MD-11 for P3D V4 ???thnks
  18. I am just beginning with FSX Gold and having problems with getting pitch sensitivity to settle down. Have tried various sensitivity settings for CH yoke. All is Ok on climb out and landings. But in cruise, stabilator and trim become extremely sensitive with lots of extreme porpoising with minor control inputs. Aircraft is Carenado Archer II, which otherwise behaves mostly like the stable PA28-180s that I have flown.

    Hello i'm Maurizio coming from Rome.i'll post a question on Fsx section.. :)
  20. Hi all, I am new to this site. There was a time around 2004 when I was heavily into flight simulation and then due to real life things changed. Now I would like to get back into it. Unlike before, now there are many options available. The flight simulator I was looking into and planning to get is Virtual Flight Simulator 3D, the elite package there is usually over $200 and is on sale right now for $127. It looks like it is the most complete package with the most aircraft and airports (etc) without having to pay extra for add-ons. Then again I see a lot of bad reviews mixed in with the good ones, and the website seems a bit shady to me so I am concerned with throwing out $127 and not knowing for sure I am not getting taken to the cleaners. I know the most popular is MS Flight Simulator X on Steam, I used MSFS2004 back in the day. MSFSX is on sale on Steam but there are several packages available and then there are almost 300 add-ons, and if all were purchased adds up to almost $3,00. This seems a bit much. Out of the flight simulators out there, what is my best option? I would like something that is as complete as possible and my spending limit is around $200 tops and I would like to spend much less than that. I would like something that has some training in it as much as possible and has the option for multiplayer and ATC. I welcome any and all help and information/opinions. Sam Here are my computer specs: HP Omen Gaming Laptop Windows 10 - Intel i7-7700HQ @ 2.8GHz 8GB RAM Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti HP - Pavilion 32" LED QHD Monitor in 2K Logitech Freedom 2.4 Cordless Joystick Razr Deathadder Elite Razr Chroma Tournament Edition
  21. Hi all. I'm a new guy. I know how to fly planes, but don't yet understand how to do so in FSX. I'd like to get familiar with the 737 NG, so installed FSX/SE, the Los Angeles scenery pack available through Steam, and also installed PMDG's 737NGX 800/900 Base Package. As I try to figure this out, any chance somebody could confirm that the person who posted this YouTube video was also using EZDOK, and the ability to easily look around the cockpit as shown in this video (starting at time 2:40) is not part of the software I've purchased? Many thanks!
  22. Hello everyone, I purchased PMDG 747 Queen of the Sky II yesterday but I am having problem installing it. When I install it and try to run, it does not ask me to put in the registration key. I am not sure when do I put that. After my aircraft opens up, the aircraft looks frozen with the gear up and the engine is stopped. Am I doing something wrong? Need help on this, thank you.
  23. Hello Everyone, I am sure everyone is aware of this problem and I need help. I have Windows 10 and I keep on getting the FATAL ERROR MESSAGE on my FSX. Is there anyway to fix this? Thanks in advance.

    No AI Traffic

    I have a question. I recently purchased JFK scenery from and the installation went smoothly etc and I installed AI via world-of-ai but when I run FSX I don't see any aircraft in the airport but there is a normal duplicate JFK and all the aircraft is operating there. Is there anyway to fix it so it works on my new JFK airport? Thanks in advance.

    Hello all.

    Hi their everyone new to the forums but not to simulators though admittedly my main forte is train sims other then flight.(still got my old MSTS CD floating around somewhere). To tell the truth I have kinda lurked around a bit before but what made me finally join is I have a CTD involving FSX that I can't find anyone else having before(unless Google just isn't giving me good links) Though don't know if asking for help here is OK or wait until I can post it to the CTD forum. Anyways I think i've started to ramble so I shall take me leave for now and hope y'all have a good day.
