  1. Hi guys is there a tool payware or freeware for FSX/P3D that allow to take automatic screenshot of external view while you are in VC? This feature would be very useful during landing and takeoff. Infact I think all of us make a replay of takeoff or landing in external view and make a specific and repeated screenshots. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

    HELP, Issues with external objects

    Random as I am flying when I turn to the Spot view I will notce that non of the light are working anymore, the engines aren't spinning but I still keep cruise speed etc. Also there is two random cones hanging from the top of tail and from the stabilizer. 1) why does this happen? 2) how do I stop/ control? 3) Any other insight would be great Thanks Brandon Card
  3. Hi everyone, My old Windows XP machine was chugging along with its 150 GB hard drive and I noticed only the other day that it was getting near to full with all my home made scenery. So I decided to simple copy and paste the FSX across to my external USB Verbatim hard drive. Then I opened this up and found the fsx.exe folder and put a link on the desk top. OK I now have a new FSX icon on the desk top so holding my breath I pressed the icon and FSX sprung into action. I tested it out and noticed that the flights load faster and flying the stock Cessna 172 is very smooth at 20 FPS and the quality is spot on. So far so good, now to remove the FSX on the C drive to free up more space. So you have to go to the C drive and look for Microsoft Games. This is the ONLY folder you should right click on and delete. In Windows XP the files are so large that the rubbish bin cannot handle them so XP asks is it OK to permanently delete all. At this point I took a deep breath and hit delete ALL. OK back to the desk top and delete the old short cut and then open FSX with the new icon pointing to the external drive. Yes it works perfectly OK. I now have a virtually empty C drive and Windows XP running a lot faster. Hope this helps others.

    External GPU Sound

    I have a weird oddity with my 777. There seems to be no sound playing while using the external gpu cart. I have power from the cart, just no sound. Strange that the air start and air conditioning external engine sound plays but not the gpu. I have not modified anything or removed files. Anyone have a fix or know of this issue? Thanks.
  5. Hi, I have a problem with some (but not all) external views when selecting an aircraft to fly from the library window. Only the VC is shown and odd bits and pieces. This affects default a/c as well as non default. I suspected Ezdok 2.5 which I have recently installed. I tried running the config tool again - no change. I then disabled Ezdok but it made no difference. This seems to me to rule Ezdok out. Anyone have any suggestions please. Baz
  6. Hi, I'm sorry if this has been covered before, but I tried a search for my "peculiar" issue, without finding anything similar. Short and aircrafts get weird shadows in external views. Often it looks like a smaller version of the actual aircraft. Running FSX-SE. A couple of screenshots: Virtavia's B-1B is especially bad MilViz F-4E Phantom II is not too rough, but still some weird flickering across the fuselage at times. I've unchecked Toned Shadows, as I picked up a comment about that from another post, but while it did seem to help a bit on the F-4E, it did nothing for the B-1B. All I can say is that these shadows popped up when I enabled DX10 for FSX-SE. So I'm wondering if there's something else that can/should be done here. Finally I have another issue, which also came along with DX10. It might be an issue with the aircraft models, but I just wanted to check with people more knowledgable than me, if this is something that has been seen before, and if there is a fix for it. The issue is that the cockpit lighting sometimes bleeds through the fuselage. I see it on several aircrafts, but since I've been flying the MilViz F-100 a lot lately, I only have a screenshot of that right now. The lights I'm talking about can be seen at the front of the windscreen. Not too bad in this picture, but can be more prominent at other angles. The lights shine through also from six o'clock low, for example. So, any ideas?
