  1. I'm just saying hello to everyone and i'm really glad to join this community!. I'm really new to flying and i would like to learn to how to fly. The reason that i wanted to learn flying because i really enjoy flights and i just love seeing things from above. I'm planning to take a pilot certificate later on after i finish my studies but for now i thing i just want to learn in FSX and have a great simulated flight. Thank you!
  2. Hello guys (copied this text from steamcommunity, no answers there..please help) Now I bought fsx steam edition after having a unwanted break from fsx in about 6 years, back in the days when I fly IFR, I was used to have the option Request Flight Following when I´m middle of atlantic or flying through Europe or elsewhere. Now I just have the radio contact with ground, tower, approach and departure frequencies. I cannot land IFR, although I filed on my flight plan to do so, how do I fix it and do ATC Centers stopped automatically pop up on ATC window? I have not downloaded any ATC add ons whatsoever, and when I have Flight Following from different approach frequencies I fly over, they dont say I should go over to another center or approach to continue the Following. I do get handoffs from tower, ground, approach and departure, but none of them to the Center. So I´can't change my flight plan airborne or request flight following, so I´am all by myself when flying long haul flights. Can you help? Greetings Joorut
  3. 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.
  4. I have a i7 7700k not clocked and 32gb of ram at 2134mgz and 1060 3gb. Do I need to upgrade to another card I'm max out on settings and the screen flutters when I pan to left and right. Also when ASN download new weather FSX loads the scenery and textures with the window coming up In mid flight ...
  5. Seems like a long running problem. Running FSX SE with PMDG 737. Sometimes, with no apparent pattern, cursor no longer changes to a hand to control knobs, switches, etc.. Can sometimes get it to come back via view changes, zoom changes, etc., other times not. Any fixes or known "don't do's" to keep it from happening?
  6. 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.
  7. Hi, I'm looking to get a good PC to be able to run FSX smoothly with some addons, will these specs be good enough; Processor: AMD Athlon X4 880K 4GHz (4.4GHz Overclock, 4 cores) Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Memory: 16GB of DDR3 Memory running at 1600MHz Storage: 1TB Hard Drive Power 500W Thanks
  8. The home screen appears, does the index of scenarios, then makes the bases of the new scenarios. Then a Windows message appears that says "Serious Error Windows will restart the program". Restart the program and the same sequence occurs and a message appears that says "Serious Error, windows will close the program" and effectively when accepting the program is closed. I already did the test to start FSX under the problem of compatibility starting FSX in W7 or XP, but the same, the problem persists.
  9. 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!
  10. Hi I am Bruce66 I have been flight simming in various platforms for many years from back in the day when we were dealing with wire frame and tiny little joysticks if you were lucky enough to have one at all. I have browsed this site many times and thought it was about time I joined in. I now fly FSX SE almost exclusively and Am exclusively an offline virtual pilot. I am using what most people would likely consider obsolete computer equipment except for my Thrustmaster Warthog flight controller and Siatek pedals. But I make it work and enjoy the flight sim experience. I look forward to delving deeper into this site and meeting some of you on the forums.
  11. I purchased the PMDG B-747 Basic package for FSX thinking I could buy the FSX software to run it online. Where is it for sale on DVD? I found a 10G dowload at Steam, but does this require you to be online to use it? I would gladly pay the $26 if it can be used offline. I used a really early version of PMDG that ran with FS2000 Professional about ten years ago, but doubt this would work today. Can anyone help me buy an FSX package on DVD or download to get me stared? PS. As a retired UAL pilot, I found running PC Simulations of aircraft I flew on the line, a great help in holding off cognitive decline that can start even before retirement. If this happens before retirement, the sims can tell you that it might be a good idea to retire early or spend more time flying sims like PMDG to stay current. Thanks to software like this, I know more about the FMS now, than I did when I actually flew the airplane. I would have killed to have the chance then to practice for flight checks and recurrent training that is available now through this type of technology. Tom Wright
  12. Hi guys my computer is running on windows 7, i know its old and i might uppgrade to windows 10. I had a Microsoft flight sim many years ago Now i would like to have a simulator where both VFR and IFR procedures can be trained at airports in the US. I would like to have the Cessna Citation in the simulator, the version with the glass cockpit. What version of Microsoft simulator should I use, or what other simulator would be good. Where to buy it. Thankful for any help here Howswede
  13. As I mentioned in another post, I'm returning to simming after a period away and I've forgotten some things. I'm rebuilding my FSX world from scratch and starting to fly again. As a Toposim Galaxy Member from waaaaay back, I have ~50GB of mesh covering the entire world. I've also got Ultimate Terrain v2 for various regions of the world. I've forgotten the performance effect(s) of activating ALL the mesh or sceneries installed in the Scenery Library globally versus activating only areas where I'm flying. Could someone remind or advise me about the relevant considerations and performance effects relating to this? I vaguely remember using batch files to swap out scenery.cfg files when I used FS9 but don't remember if I did that with FSX. Thanks.
  14. 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!
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. Dear Gentlemen, my name is Marco and i m new one,i have 200 hours on FSX read some books and use FSX just for fun. So please when u write to me use easy words.

  18. Hello, my name is Matheus and I use FS since FS for Windows 95. I changed it to FS 98, then to FS2004 and FSX SE. I have been developing sceneries for 10 years and started to work with aircrafts. I use avsim for a long. I believe simulation can help many people throught world in order to train and develop skills for flying safety. I hope I can get my flight license within some years! Matheus
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. In the future, when the commercial version arrive, will chase plane In-Sim View Selector work in fullscreen mode?
  22. Hi, I have problem with lights on day time, can anyone help me turn this off or uninstall?
  23. Hi, I have been attempting to enable widescreen in Flight Simulator X (Disk edition, not Steam). I've edited the .CFG file and set "WideViewAspect=True". It hasn't changed anything. Could I be doing something wrong? Thanks, Sticky
  24. 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.
  25. After searching across the internet for a full month I have not been able to find a Pakistan International Airlines livery for the Payware Captain Sim 707. In the free liveries column I only managed to find a broken link of the PIA 707 which was probably removed by the author. Could any livery making or aircraft repainting person be kind enough to submit his works here. The repaint kit of the Captain Sim 707 is free and you can download it at https://captainsim.com/products/x707/rk.html (65 MB). The liveries I am itching to have are as follows, https://www.google.com.pk/search?q=PIA+Boeing+707&rlz=1C1CHBD_enPK693PK693&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiU957UvpDVAhUBlpQKHcV7D2EQ_AUICigB&biw=1366&bih=638#imgrc=0XRflyJ9eZvUBM: https://www.google.com.pk/search?q=PIA+Boeing+707&rlz=1C1CHBD_enPK693PK693&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiU957UvpDVAhUBlpQKHcV7D2EQ_AUICigB&biw=1366&bih=638#imgrc=svULHq4y48b1HM: https://www.google.com.pk/search?q=PIA+Boeing+707&rlz=1C1CHBD_enPK693PK693&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiU957UvpDVAhUBlpQKHcV7D2EQ_AUICigB&biw=1366&bih=638#imgrc=zNovIqtxMwF6iM: https://www.google.com.pk/search?q=PIA+Boeing+707&rlz=1C1CHBD_enPK693PK693&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiU957UvpDVAhUBlpQKHcV7D2EQ_AUICigB&biw=1366&bih=638#imgrc=cBVrLMAXg45ZoM:
