  1. The HiFi team would like to sincerely thank everyone who participated in our Active Sky 2016 SP1 Screenshot Contest! As always picking the winners was not easy this time around! There were many great contenders, but in the end we had to narrow it down. We picked 5 winners to showcase them in our forums. For prize details and contest results, please visit the screenshot contest winners thread. Thanks again to everyone for your participation! Stay tuned for future contests, giveaways and events!
  2. I have ActiveSky (latest) working fine with my NGX in P3Dv4.1. However - the weather radar only ever displays information in the right hand side of the gauge. Tilt, gain etc. all work OK - and I can see the sweep moving over the left hand side, but nothing ever shows there. Any ideas, anyone? Adam.

  4. I can’t for the life of me figure out what is going on with VOX and the ATIS weather. Every time I tune to an ATIS whether for departure or on approach, it always gives the same weather. Winds are always calm and most of the time it is using the wrong runways. The weird thing is when tuning the ATIS for departure, the green bar readout at the top is correct, but the voice is not reading that METAR. It usually has the correct ALSTG or within .01”, but VIS is always 62NM (not sure why), no clouds, and winds calm. Anyway else have this issue? I am running 4.2, AS, REX SF for weather add-ons. Has anyone else run into this issue for weather? I’m getting to the point where I know this software isn’t for me much longer because of the issues, but enjoy the ability to practice the verbal comms.
  5. I had Active Sky 2012 and I uninstalled it yesterday. After installing it I restarted my computer and went back to FSX and when I pressed SHIFT+5 a blank HiFi Technologies radar came up. I went in and manually removed all the flies that are from Active Sky and HiFi Technologies and it still does it. I found out that it is called xGuage and I looked to see if there were any files with that name and there were not. So I would love to get this completely uninstalled so that SHIFT+5 pulls up what it is supposed to.
  6. Hello, I have been tweaking FSX for quite a while now (or at least trying hah) and I've gotten some pretty good results (with various addons such as Orbx FTX Global, Vector, OpenLC, addon airports and also with the PMDG 777, Active Sky, ect) and it performes very satisfactory, but I have stumbled uppon an issue recently. I have a Intel Core I7 3930k @ 4.5 (used to be at 4.6, but went back to 4.5 so it stays cooler), stable. But I've been doing some testing and it seems that FSX never reaches my OC speed of 4.5 Ghz, but will instead only go up to 4.2Ghz. I measured this with CPU-Z. And yes, my cpu will run at 4.5, when playing other games, or running CPU intensive software and of course when running synthetic benchmarks like prime95. I would really like to take advantage of all of my horsepower, so getting FSX to run at my processor's OC speed is a priority! Some background info: - 3930k @ 4.5 (liquid cooled), 16GB Corsair Vengance @ 2133Mhz, ASUS GTX 680 DirectCU II, ASUS Rampage IV Formula, 240 GB Crucial SSD (for windows only, sadly :/), 2TB WD Caviar Black HDD, 1000W PSU. - I do have HT enabled as I found it makes no difference disabling it for FSX and I do have the correct affinity mask setting for a 6 core, 12 thread CPU (so with HT enabled), which is 1364, and also my FSX CFG is properly tweaked. All help would be greatly appreciated )
  7. Basically the title says it all.I'm trying to get the most realism out of my sim (P3DV3.3) and don't know which to go for. Any recommendations are welcome and are greatly appreciated! (I fly both tubeliners and GA aircraft)
  8. I'm a long time user of most of these products with the exception of EnvTex.. i've heard and seen good things from EnvTex.. My preference with p3dv3 was to use Rex Texture Direct for the ground/water and use ASCA + AS16 for the sky/clouds.. Now with p3dv4 at hand and fully installed.. i'm debating which route to take. Its my understanding that Rex Texture direct should work with a patch any day now (i assume this means install the old installer then patch it?).. and I have installed the beta for aspd and asca.. though i'm not clear on the aspd and asca if i need to purchase anything to keep them installed (IE: do they expire).. i had purchased the AS license awhile back for 16/asca. (i'm a huge fan of the dynamic cloud feature with ASCA, which i believe is the only product to do this on the fly?) Given all this.. i thought maybe looking at EnvTex is worth a shot, though if i can achieve similar looks without spending more then i'd rather avoid it for now, as there are other addons on my shopping list :) Also not sure, but it looks like EnvTex is sortof a patch job to get it running too... In general i've gone to the all add-on.xml route with folder separation from the main p3d folder.. hoping rex/envtex would adhere to this in some way, not sounding likely.. seems like they are replacing textures directly (unavoidable i guess though since its texture replacements, ala FTXG style). So in general unsure here.. any experiences so far.. or thoughts on EnvTex vs Rex (at least for the ground textures).. I assume they are all on par and maybe i should just wait for the rex patch (and skyforce 3D as well). It sounds like the sky textures and maybe the runway textures cant be beat with EnvTex.. so maybe EnvTex + ASCA + AS16 (clouds with AS).. Thanks in advance
  9. Hello all, I am upgrading my flight simulaor with two computers that will be connected with a crossover cat 5 ethernet to run all the software and hardware controls as best as possible. here is my new beast computer: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz LGA 1150 Boxed Processor – overclock 4.4- 5.0 ghz ASUS Sabertooth Z97 MARK 1 LGA1150 ATX Intel Motherboard Thermaltake Water 3.0 Performer Cooling System 16GB DDR3 2133 PC3-17000 (2x8GB, 1.5V) 3GB Asus GTX 780 Ti, GDDR5, PCIe Thermaltake 750W 80+ Active PFC Power Supply Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 1TB MLC SSD – 2ND DRIVE Crucial M550 512GB MLC SATA - MAIN DRIVE 24X DVD Burner Zalman Z1 case Windows 8.1 Professional x64 Old computer: i7-2000k GTX 560 graphics card Win 7 64 bit New computer has two SSD – 512GB and 1 TB NEW COMPUTER – 4 monitors - and where to install the software Main SSD 512 GB – all in x86 folder - FSX, GSX ground, Accumsim 172, other aircraft, missions, FSUIPC, WIDEFS, REX overdrive in separate folder on main drive 2nd SSD 1 TB – MegaSceneryEarth files included HI Res cities & airports, night environment CA - only load in areas of flying only most hardware to connect to main computer - PFC yoke, Saitek rudder pedals, GoFlight modules - EFIS, MCP-PRO, various GoFlight modules, custom 172 R master switch panel, brake switch, fuel switch OLD COMPUTER – 2 monitors In X86 folder GA Panel software - run on 24" lcd monitor Active SKY GPS software - to run on GNS 530 by Emuteq ( 2nd monitor ) Were should I install PMDG 737NG? becasue I have a 24" LCD screen on my 2nd computer to run gauges for all GA aircraft. My worry is PMDG on Win 8.1as well. Is this possible to run the PMDG gauge screens on my 24" lcd from the 2nd computer to link with FSX? Any other suggestions on my upgrade over build would be appreciated, thank you. Richard
  10. HI, So, I'm confused. My set up is as follows: Main PC: P3D V3.2 (I haven't yet moved to V3.3 because I don't fancy the whole reinstall just yet - will make the move at some point) FSGRW Network Secondary PC FWGRW EFB VAS Monitor I've been running with FSGRW for some time and rather like it. It is simple to use on the network set up and gives me a reasonable representation of real world weather into the sim. Things advance though and get better and better. So I'm wondering about RES and/or Active Sky 2016. As I understand it there are two basic 'components': 1. The weather injection engine 2. Enhanced textures that just whatever weather is in the sim and make it look better I know that FSGRW is just item (1). So views: 1. Should I add REX 4 ? (That is just enhanced textures right ?) 2. If I went to Active Sky 2016, that would replace FSGRW wouldn't it (I'm thinking it is a weather engine as opposed to textures - see next line) 3. If I went with AS16, would I then consider Active Sky Cloud Art ? (That is textures right ? If so, would that work with FSGRW as it currently stands ?) There are so many products, I can't seem t understand which is what !! (Guess that is a good place to be rather than no products at all !) Any help for the simple of mind much appreciated :-) R

    Vectors vs SIDs questions for PRO Atc

    Forgive me, I'm a PRO ATC/ ATC noob First question: Is there a way to only receive SIDs as opposed to receiving heading vectors sometimes? Second question: When I DO receive vectors, do I just enter the heading they tell me to into the MCP until they tell me to continue on the path programmed in the FMC? On that note, how do I know when they want me to do that? And I'd select LNAV, correct? Third question: What does "continue as filed" mean? Is it the answer to the question above? Thanks a lot!!
  12. While the FSX: Steam preview is loading I now get an error that ASconnect is not compatible with my fsx steam version. However it worked before I installed REX Essentials+Overdrive and REX Texture Direct with Soft Clouds. I tryed reintalling simconnect, asconnect, active sky next and I'm stumped
  13. Hi All, I'm in a very unfortunate situation. I recently purchased a new FSX machine and PC to run as a client for programs such as EFB, Active Sky etc. Ive always ran active sky over a network and never had any problems. I set the original networked install up my self. Since buying these new machines I cannot for the life of me get ASN to connect to FSX.. It just says waiting for simulator in orange. This is driving me round the bend as im fairly confident I've done everything correct but maybe not lol.. Here's some specs of my install Main FSX PC - Win 7 64 bit AS_Connect is installed FSX Version: MSFSX: Acceleration: 10.0.61637.0 MSFSX Acceleration SDK Version: 10.0.61637.0 Note - FSX is classic boxed edition Secondry non fsx gaming PC - Win 7 64 bit SimConnect Versions installed: 10.0.60905.0 || 10.0.61242.0 || 10.0.61259.0 ASN Version: Active Sky Next for FSX SP2 Am I missing something here... I'm loosing my mind lol! Oh and by the way Avilasoft EFB is fully operational and functional over the network using simconnect.. Live map, airport etc everything works perfectly Please help!
