  1. 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.

    SODE et FSX

    Bonjour à tous, J'ai dernièrement installé GSX Level 2 et la version 1.6.3 de SODE pour l'animation des jetways (fichier msi). Malheureusement SODE n'apparait pas dans la liste des Addons de FSX alors qu'il apparait bien dans P3D V3. SODE est correctement activé dans SODE Platform Manager et le fichier exe.xml est correct. Merci pour votre aide Xavier
  3. 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
  4. I recently got the BUG for Flight Sim - Have a Yoke and Joystick - Running FSX on Steam - Purchased a few aircraft and downloaded some. Looking at the FXscenery purchases. Few Cessna 150 and Piper Tomahawk (Soloed in Tomahawk) - Did that about 30 years ago, then life got in the way. Still remember the feeling. Want to get into ILS Landings and Vectoring. Played with G1000 panels, but used some simulators, and seems the FSX port of G1000 is very limited...could not select nearest airport. The airports were 4000km away, with one within 200 miles.- maybe im missing something. Hope to get into Multiplayer and VATSIM soon. Im building a new Yoke with ball-bearking slides for smoother play - The CH Products one has a lot of friction. Also want to build my own rudder pedals. Great plans....Love taking off when I have few minutes.Great fun. Any suggestions, let me know!!! Thanks Eric
  5. Hello I've already started using the forums but though I'd officially introduce myself. I'm Danny, from the north west of the UK. Always been into civil aviation, frequent visitor at Manchester Airport's viewing park. I'm just starting out with FSX SE, bought a Thrustmaster joystick and a couple of scenery add-ons. Enjoying the learning and freedom that Flight Sim brings. I realise there are better software packages out there but thought FSX SE was a good starting point and to be honest, I'm really enjoying it! I would like to stream to my YT channel but have had a few failed attempts with OBS. I've watched YT tutorials to solve the issue of black screen in full screen mode but I'm getting nowhere. Can anyone shed any light on how to work around this?

    Top 10 best freeware for fsx:SE scenery?
  7. Hi Everyone, I have an issue with my FSX Landclass or Terrain Mesh (I don't know which one is the correct term) since yesterday when I tried to install a payware product. After installation I wanted to fly from that airport but when FSX loaded, it took a while to load and stopped at 34% for about a minute which it never did before and when It loaded, the airports were visible but my WOAI traffic was non existent and the terrain was black, you could make out the shape of mountains etc but there was no differentiation between Land and Sea and I even went into the Top-down view and zoomed out and the whole world terrain was black. Does anyone have any advice on this or have any recommendations on what I could do next to resolve this? Thanks in advance, HCCA320
  8. 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.
  9. Hello. I have homemade overhead, throttles and autopilot based on MJoy, Arduino and HIDMacros and FSUIPC software. As I fly in multiplayer mode on FSX, some overhead and throttle switches will stop working or change their assignment (eg. the autopilot switch turns on the landing lights, etc.). All offsets assigned to HIDMacros work properly. Sometimes (once every 10 times) after logging in the session everything is ok. I even had a situation that I only used the Thrustmaster joystick and then nothing worked. This happens on any plane (PMDG B738 or default B737 or even Cessna from FSX). I connected to servers from I thought it might be the fault of setting up servers, so I tried to create my server. The problem has not disappeared. Can any of you know what is the reason for the appearance of these problems? I am asking for help and I wish you nice flights.
  10. Hello everyone. I am a great lover of Flight Simualtion. Recently i bought FSX and whats the problem is that it runs fine unless we load something second time. Example: when i start and aircraft at an airport then it will run very smoothly with no crashes or error but if i change the airport or if i end the flight and go for some other or lets i am running the game at a speed of ×16 and if i get it to normal then the loading screen appears and immediately the FSX crashes. i.e whenever i start FSX i am able to play only one flight at a time. If i end the flight and go for another one then fsx crashes. If i want to play another flight then i have to exit the whole fsx and then run it again. Please help me out. I have FSX SP1&SP2 installed. I have not added any addons or aircrafts.

    Ai planes

    I installed serval Ai planes recently and on the start page for FSX 7 I have 25 or so plane that The same names. I do not have a clue of how to go about fixing that. Could someone get me headed in the right direction???
  12. So last night I had successfully overclocked my fx(6300) 3.5ghz six core to 4.0 ghz and all was well i happened to go on fsx se and loaded in and noticed a fps drop from 40 fps average to a 10 fps average, i happened to look at my task manager and notice my gpu(rx550) was at %98 and was maxed out, i always run my settings at max and can do so and stay stable and 30 40 fps but now im maxing out my gpu somehow and im at 10 fps. I have my fsx tweaked with bufferpools and all and I really have no idea why this is happening if anyone can help me it would be so greatly appreciated. P.S. sorry I most likely posted this in the wrong place i dont use the forums much.
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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!

    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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.

    New pc for fsx

    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
  22. 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!
  23. 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?
  24. 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?
  25. Hi, I have problem with lights on day time, can anyone help me turn this off or uninstall?
