  1. Having had a gamepad with only vibration effects, I found that fsx doesnt allow you to set the force feedback levels. The driver that came along with the gamepad also didnt support any level setting. This was unplayable as it kept vibrating at max rate all the time. I have created a somconnect addon that creates the vibration effect based on the following : (developed for Airbus A321 , should also do well with Boeing's ) {Not sure fsx looks into these states for ff calculation } 1. Indicated airspeed 2. Engine rpm 3. Acceleration around 3 axes 4. GroundSpeed ( if on ground ) Other factors with vibration 1. Flaps increment decrement ( step wise ) 2. Spoiler toggle ( fully extended/fully retracted ) 3. Landing gear up/down 4. Stalling 5. Overspeed 6. Landing force Those who only have vibration effects in their gamepads, do try it out.. How to install ? 1. As usual with all addons, download the dll to a path and if on Vista or above and modify dll.xml at C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\ as follows: {For XP, this file is in a different folder, need to figure it out.} Add the following section towards the end of the dll.xml just before </SimBase.Document> <Launch.Addon> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>True</ManualLoad> <Name>ForceEffects.dll</Name> <Path>D:\Path\ForceEffects.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> 2. This will ask permission to load the dll when you start fsx. Click 'ok' or 'yes' wherever needed. 3. Also, remember to DISABLE forcefeedback from fsx settings and do not connect more than one ff enabled controllers while trying this out.

  2. Hi Folks Anyone still interested in flying Cargo Jobs ? If so you might like to have a play with...... 'Cargo Series' - Career-progression based 'Jobs', enabling the use of larger aircraft and payloads, in Flight. 'Cargo Series' jobs are based on MGS Flight's default 'Light Cargo' job, (as-released). All modifications and additional code being restricted to the limitations/capabilities of MGS Flight's mission engine/framework, and their existing, as-released, dialog's content. ______________________________________________________________________________________ What this public beta contains - A career-progression of aircraft-category weight-size jobs, (4 off). The next beta will include additional variants of each aircraft-category job. ______________________________________________________________________________________ Why - MGS Flight's default missions & jobs - - Mainly use statically scripted code, (see example below). - Are coded specifically for limited aircraft types. - Are suitable only for limited aircraft weight-sizes, (Very-Light). - Cargoes are limited to 453 kg, (1,000 lbs). - Don't discourage inappropriate behaviours. - Have no career progression, (as released). Example - The majority of scripts only test against static values. e.g. Destination runway is short, (tests against 609m). Takes no account of aircraft-type, payload, weather, etc. MGS Flight's default 'Light Cargo' job - Is actually only suitable for 'Very-Light' category sized aircraft. 'Cargo Series' jobs - - Mainly use dynamically scripted code, (data from aircraft type being flown). - Are suitable for all available aircraft types, (extensible). - Are suitable for any aircraft weight-size, (subject to MTOW). - Cargo weights are appropriate to aircraft weight-size. - Discourage inappropriate behaviours, (penalties). - Offer a career progression. ______________________________________________________________________________________ Credits - - Microsoft Game Studios - For FLIGHT. - Steve Heijster, (StoneLance) - For his 'Flight Tool Kit', unflagging enthusiasm, and diligence. Much appreciated. Many thanks to Steve, without whose tools and assistance this would not have been possible. ______________________________________________________________________________________ Download - From FS-Shipyards.com - MS FLIGHT - ADDON - ACTIVITIES - JOBS - Cargo Series Have Fun !

  3. The first payware add-on for FSW is available now: FS-Flightcontrol gives you control over every aspect of your flight and includes a moving map too, visit the homepage here: https://www.fs-flightcontrol.com/en/ FS-Flightcontrol also works with FSX, FSX:SE, X-Plane and that submarine simulator I mean P3D, so it's got to be great value... You can select which sim you want to use it with on launch, it then loads the scenery.cfg for that sim on first run: Then specify your start location and any other factors you require: There's a free 14-day trial, it's a 58mb download which took about 20 seconds on my PC, give it a try!
  4. Hello, I would like to ask the community to see if there's any experienced programmers who specializes in Microsoft's Visual Studio. There was a 32-bit add-on for FSX and P3D v3 called PDF Kneeboard and it's such a must have tool for those who fly IFR/tubeliners. With the recent release of the 64-bit P3D v4, this add-on no longer works. It's basically a dll file. The source code is readily open and available for anyone who wishes to modify or add to it. So I was wondering if there's anyone here who may be interested in making this work with P3D v4. The source files are located here: https://github.com/nmeier/fscode/tree/master/pdfkneeboard Since I know nothing about programming, this is no task for me. I've already contacted the author and asked for permission to do so and he said it would be no problem, since he has no time to continue with this anymore, he's making it open source to anyone who wishes to do so. I'm not sure what it would take to make this 64bit compatible. Do you need to rewrite the code or just modify some parts, or simply just recompile it using a 64bit compiler?
  5. Hello Flight Friends,good News for all Pilots! Beech Baron 58 Aircraft Addon now available,converted from FS Tester about Toolkit. Special Thanks for his much work and all other Guy`s who helped him. For install you need the Toolkit first,here are the Links: Toolkit 1.1.28: http://flighttoolkit.com/?p=81 Beech Baron 58 Instructions: http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/beech-baron-58-for-microsoft-flight-rc1.438115/ Beech Baron 58 Addon: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AnlX-fSOb3OagW7FkG6GoOLYHO8d Have Fun,best regards,Steff
  6. I have recently installed the Quality Wings 757 onto my laptop, and it is registered and seems to work fine except for the FMC. The FMC seems to be having a problem displaying certain text. The IDENT Page shows everything correctly as well as my up to date AIRAC Cycle of 1509. However when I proceed to the next page, the REF Airport section is blank and does not let me type anything on that page. The SID's and STAR's also don't appear. But if I click randomly on the SID/STAR Page, they do appear on the RTE, so its like the text is there but invisible. I am wondering if this could be a problem with a certain gauge file that is missing, but really can't seem to find the problem! Any help is appreciated. I am running Windows 10. Thank you! Regards, Chris P.S. If you are interested in seeing what the FMC looks like, reply asking for a picture. Thanks!
  7. MS FLIGHT - CORE - UI - Upgrade - MissionLoadScene - Tips When you load flights, missions, jobs, etc. are you bored with reading the same tips ? This addon package contains - - 112 new additional tips, quotes, & factoids for the 'scenery-loading' screen. - Plus 88 of FLIGHT's original 98. I've removed FLIGHT's website, survey, and GFWL related tips. The tips, quotes, & factoids, alternate between originals and new. All formatted for improved readability, (within 5 row limitation). When installed, and once in-game, tips will continue loading from whichever one you'd seen previously. i.e. They won't restart from tip zero. Please note - Currently this package will work on any FLIGHT language installation, however, the tips will be displayed in ENGLISH only. A future multi-language upgrade may become available if persons are willing to assist with translations. I'll supply the nescessary files, or raw text.

  8. Hi Folks I've uploaded a bugfix for the C-46. Just a replacement internal data file , and not extra content for you to fly. :wink: Description - The C-46, as-released, could only be used to fly a limited range of Job or Mission types. i.e. Those requiring an aircraft class of - - 'Very Light' - All default missions & jobs. - 'Medium' - None available, yet. Allowing no career progression from 'Very-Light' through to 'Medium'. This bugfix package - - Enables that career progression. - Adds all C-46 appropriate 'Category Flags', (adds - Trainer, Light, Light-Medium). - Works for all C-46 3rd party liveries, (aka repaints). - Works with all Flight's language installations, (language independent). N.B. The 'ACTIVITIES - JOBS - Cargo Series' addon will require you install this package. Otherwise, you will be unable to progress beyond 'Very Light' aircraft jobs, to the heavier cargo payloads for larger aircraft class jobs, ('Light', 'Light-Medium', 'Medium'). Technical - Aircraft have Liveries, (repaints). A Livery file describes an Aircraft's capabilities. A Livery file contains CategoryFlags. CategoryFlags define the Aircraft's type/useage classifications. e.g. FixedWing, Light, Medium, Heavy, etc. Jobs & missions contain a SimObjectFlagName field, listing their required CategoryFlags permitting an aircraft to fly that job or mission.

  9. I have been away from FSX for a few years, so I may not have done this properly. I tried to install a Cessna 182 from Flyaway last night but the plane did not appear in the aircraft selection menu. The accompanying instructions said to use the Extract to: function and navigate to the Sim Objects/Airplanes folder as the target. Having done that I found that the addon's name appeared beneath every repainted version of the stock Cessna 172 in the menu, though the proper thumbnails remained in the menu. When I selected one of those it produced random parts of the plane at their proper places, but without the remaining parts to create the complete image. I tried adding a different plane with the same results. Does that indicate my zip client may not be extracting files properly, or is their a more likely issue? Where do I go from here to troubleshoot this problem? Thanks for assisting. It's good to be home! Lance509
  10. I am curious, what are some free or cheap FSX addons that could enhance my overall experience? I already have the PMDG 737, 747, 777, TOPCAT, PrecipitFX, GSX, and several airport addons. I mostly do airline flying and would like to know how to enhance that experience. For example, I heard of an addon that simulates your life as an airline pilot, so you get dispatched to an airport and you start up at the airport that you left off from (I can’t remember the name of that addon, please help). Any suggestions are much appreciated!
  11. MS FLIGHT - ADDON - CORE - MISC - Upgrade - CareerTrackDefinitions - Version 2 For 'XP Grinders', and any aspirants. This addon upgrades FLIGHT's Core\Misc\CareerTrackDefinitions file, and when installed, supercedes all previously released versions. Flight's 'User Profile' displays a maximum of - - As Released - 'Level' 20, equating to 500,000 'XP'. - As Upgraded - 'Level' 100, equating to 128,000,000 'XP'. Hopefully more than sufficient, for most of your flying careers. These XP-Level definitions are based on the same numerical-progression as FLIGHT's original. Pre-Installation - Anyone who'd installed the previous CareerTrackDefinitions addon, should fully remove that CareerTrackDefinitions.addon. To remove - - START 'FTK Addon Manager' - SELECT the 'CORE - UI - Upgrade - CareerTrackDefinitions' - RIGHT-CLICK & DELETE the original 'CORE - UI - Upgrade - CareerTrackDefinitions' Installation - Due to changes implemented in FTK addon's loading-sequence, introduced in support of the 'FSX World' conversion addon, this CareerTrackDefinitions v2 now requires manual installation. Installation actions may require Administrator-level privelege. UnZip into a temporary location. The Zip contains 2 files - - Core_Misc_CareerTrackDefinitions.pak - README_INSTALL_Core_Misc_CareerTrackDefinitions.txt, (this file). Ensure FLIGHT is not running. Locate your folder containing "Flight.exe". Copy the 'Core_Misc_CareerTrackDefinitions.pak' file, into that folder. Using Notepad.exe, or another TEXT editor, (not WordPad, or Word), open 'FileLocator.config' from that folder. SELECT and COPY the XML MappingEntry line below. <MappingEntry LocationType="Zip" PhysicalLocation="Core_Misc_CareerTrackDefinitions.pak" VirtualPath="Core" /> Scroll to the end of 'FileLocator.config'. Find the closing tag </FileLocator>. PASTE the above COPIED line of XML into FLIGHT's default 'FileLocator.config' file, immediately prior to the closing tag </FileLocator>. Save your edited 'FileLocator.config'. Post Installation - Start FLIGHT.exe. Click PLAY. On FLIGHT's in-game menu, click 'PILOT PROFILE'. Your 'CAREER' profile page will be displayed, showing your 'XP' earned, matching 'Career Level', plus detailed performance data. If your currently active profile has earned more than 539,375 'XP', ('Career Level' 21), that profile should now display your appropriate upgraded 'Career Level'. Any problems - Post here in this thread. Author - Microsoft - Tweaked and extrapolated by Paul Donnelly, (BASys). Credits - Microsoft Games Studios HTH ATB Paul Donnelly (BASys)
  12. Hello Pilots,here i have my contribution for the Beech Baron 58. Hawaiian Airlines Paint,you must have Toolkit and Beech Baron 58 installed! You can download Repaint Addon from my Cloud,following Link: https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%21ADBuQjz6Kz14Ev4&id=78EA2496DE940382%21173&cid=78EA2496DE940382 Now have Fun,best regards,Steff Sorry,forgot Link for Main Page on my Cloud,you can see Pics under "My own Repaints Pictures",thanks,bye https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%21ADBuQjz6Kz14Ev4&id=78EA2496DE940382%21193&cid=78EA2496DE940382
  13. Hi all Quite a noob to FSX but liking what I've seen so far. Couple of things have cropped up and I'm working a process of elimation to figure them out. One thing which has started happening recently is that each time I check the flight status via the escape menu, the sim freezes and returns to Windows10 when I try to get back to the cockpit. I suspect this may be caused by an add on as I've put one or two in and when running vanilla never had the issue. System: AMD A10 6790K @4GHZ 8GB RAM GeForce GTX 750 Windows 10 ORBX England UTX (turned off at the moment) I also downloaded a Boing 747-400 mega pack (from Rikoo I think, it was a while ago) and I want to remove this, but cannot find the aircraft where I'd expect to see them in the SimObjects>>>Airplanes folder. This is just containing the default craft, despite my airplane list being full of 747's! Any help appreciated on these points, thanks in advance.
  14. Hi All, I have run into a major problem with this scenery addon, which was a download from ES prior to their demise. I aslo have ES Guernsey. Both worked beautifully until now. My hardrive has suffered a malfunction (loud clunk in the cabinet) and a number of files were lost/corrupted, including my ESI pack backups of Alderney & Guernsey. However, I did find another backup folder (I think I made), which included all the ES directories for the Channel Islands, airports and what appears to be a backup of the FSX files it replaced. To cut a long story short, I can get ES Alderney working like it used to, except the autogen seems to be inconsistent as follows:- Hard Winter (Jan.) - about 10% autogen - few houses & trees in a snowy landscape Winter (Feb) - as Jan but autumn/fall land colours (no snow) (Mar) - almost max autogen - spring land colours Spring (Apr & May) - as Mar (Jun) - about 40% autogen - spring land colours Summer (Jul & Aug) - as Jun ( Sep) - as Jun but autumn/fall land colours Autumn/Fall (Oct & Nov) - as Sep (Dec) - as Feb. There doesn't seem to be any environment sounds audible but I have seen boats and ferry and an animated paraglider on the eastern cliffs. Does this indicate any specific issues and can they be remedied? I will check Guernsey to see if the same anomalies occur. All help gratefully received.

  16. Ezdok V2 keeps moving camera and setting it permantly. I just bought it today, i had ezdok v1 and the same thing was happening. Then i bought EzDok v2 because i thougt it was just a problem with v1. But it still happens, it is quite annoying Regards - Oscar Hey
  17. Hello to everybody, i`d like to discuss an idea i have had and hope that some scenery developers will read this topic and its replies. On the market you can find perfectly modeled scenery addons for nearly every international airport on the planet. But each one of them costs at least 20$. But when i want to fly lets say to SCEL one time in my life as a virtual pilot, these 20$ are much to expensive for me. But the default p3d airport of SCEL has only one runway and the taxiways, gates and parking positions have nothing to do with todays real airport. What i would like to have is an addon which keeps every international airport up to date in terms of runways, taxiways, gates and parking positions. Buildings are not that important to me. Sure, if there is a hangar in real world a hangar in its virtual version would be great. Same with terminals and towers. But everything with generic objects, nothing specially modeled, no hd- textures and any other special effects. For this addon i would pay more than 100$ and another 20$ for its annual update. What do you think?
  18. I just installed World Traffic plugin. It came with many airports from Europe but not many from the West. I tried to add KSFO but getting a KSFO_Random item to show up in the 'enable region' list. And it would never load any aircraft when I clicked on 'sync'. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. The KSEA airport works fine. But it came already installed.
