  1. Hi Guys, I have never added a bufferpool entry to my fsx.cfg (microsoft default), I have always been very happy with this (my system is in my signature for those wondering). I just want to confirm that not having any entry in the fsx.cfg related to bufferpools is the same as having a bufferpools=0 ? If these two are not the same, then what does having no bufferpools entry in my fsx.cfg mean? Best, Leo Cal
  2. Hi there.. Im having a problem with the engines. The fluctuate back and forth when idling and they never seem to shut down completely.. Any idea what I have done wrong. I am lost. Cheers.
  3. As I had to reinstall FSX a few weeks ago I "lost" the sibwings an2. Unfortunately I had no backup. The support is not reacting for emails (I tried it 2 days ago), the forum is dead and they have no download for it on there homepage. Do you guys have an idea for getting it back in the air? It is a great aircraft (even tough the devs are very careless) Thanks!

    QualityWings 757 QWPAS

    The QW 757 is amazing, and another feature I love to point out are the cabin announcements. Issue is, I can't hear them. I have the sound files, have SP1 and 2 installed, have everything necessary. Why can't I hear them? It said itself on the website it was all automatic.
  5. Just started recently. Will be taxiing at an airport and from the virtual cockpit some buildings disappear then later reappear. Have only noticed this at default airports so far. If I switch to external views the buildings are always there. Only seems to affect views from the VC. I have all my Scenery Display sliders to the far right except Mesh Resolution, which I have set to 2M, and Water Effects set to 2.x Low. Airplane model I have noticed this in is the RealAir TDv2.
  6. I'm not interested in your favorite product, but of GA aircraft, what is your fav of each to fly. RL Or Sim Pick a high wing GA = Pick a low wing GA = Pick a light Twin GA =
  7. Hi Folks ! Is it possible to write out to the screen the current seat / eyepoint "XYZ" positions-coordinates, like the zoom factor ? What must be write to the fsx config ? How can I do that ? Thank You !
  8. Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums here, but I have read many posts and you guys seem pretty understanding and helpful. I have Ultimate Traffic 2 and My Traffic X, I like the routes that the UT2 has planes fly, but i don't like the default Daedalus textures. My Traffic X has some of those missing repaints and for that matter some of the missing airlines FedEx/UPS for example. Now my question is how can I take some of the planes and textures out of My Traffic and import them and add them to UT2? I noticed that in MTX at Minneapolis which is a main Delta hub My Traffic had 2 from that while UT2 had the proper number and concentration, but no FedEX or UPS. There are many examples of missing things from both. Running both was duplicating airlines though. Any ideas of merging certain textures from MTX to UT2. I tried searching the forum but never actually found a good answer on how to do it. Thanks --Carl
  9. I just reinstalled FSX and Acceleration. I have the ATC open on start checkbox clicked. The ATC will not open Automatically. I have to open it myself. Here is my ATC section of my FLT file: [Atc_Menu] ScreenUniCoords=550, 378, 2451, 2682 UndocCoords=0, 0, 0, 0 Visible=True Undocked=False On my old installation it opened automatically on start. Any help please. Bob.
  10. Hello everyone. I'm posting a problem regarding the boundary placement issue in FSX. First of all, I wanted to edit the FSX flight map/GPS country boundaries so that they could reflect the current ones. The site I used for downloading the data was GADM. Then I used the ArcGis's ArcMap for editing the vertices and placing them on the map, but I haven't changed the initial projection. The BGLComp showed no problems, everything runs well, but... When I go to Edit section of Flight Planner, everything seems to be shifted slightly to the left. I really don't know what causes the problem, could it be because of the wrong projection, or the data quality isn't good? Addons I'm using: FTX Global 1.40 FTX Vector 1.35 FTX OpenLC Europe 1.20 Skyhighsim's Belgrade X Skyhighsim's Tivat 2013 Skyhighsim's Osijek X LHSimulations's LHBP Ferenc Liszt.
  11. Hello All, Does anyone know if Sim Giants support function on their website is still operational? I have filled out a ticket but no response. I have a fully purchased Canary Gold package with serial/registration number and the installer won't work in Windows 7 - but I know from forums within the flightsim community that there is a fix for this from the developer, hence the question. Any help appreciated and I keep my finger crossed that Sim Giants respond in the meantime. Cheers, Nick.
  12. Hey Pilots and Repainters! I wanted to trie making simple repaints (as far as my knowledge goes) for different planes. I use GIMP for the paintwork (I have way too less skill for buying photoshop) then I save it as windows bmp and want to convert it to .dds with DXTBmp... but opening the bmp in DXTBmp converts the colours in a freaky way - please see link for screenshot The repaints look the same in FSX... I mean this is a nice effect, but a bit too freaky for my taste Thanks for any help!
  13. Im having some issues with this addon. 1.-I believe i have updated correctly the airac database since new stars and sids are now present, how can i check the airac on the fms and what page? 2.- When selecting an ils and activating approach phase the appropiate freq and final approach cpurse wont get set in the rad nav page. I have to set the freq myself along with the final approach course, in the real thing this doesnt happen and is automatically selected when approach phase is activated. 3.-In the windows configurator it will only let me change the pax load and cargo load,how can i change the fuel,load? 4.-I still havent practiced engine failures or engine fires but the buttons in the overhead dont seem to be active. Will this addon simulate proper emergencies?? I did an mcc course with joc in a level d sim and it had x-plane10. Should i switch to this flight sim and which addon if i want the real thing?? The aerosoft is not an option since im using multimonitor and that product lacks basic 2d panels The flightsimlabs a320 isnt either since god knows when they will release it after working on it for 4 years. Thanks in advance
  14. Hi All, I recently noticed a sudden change at EGGP which I use regularly, in that the Runway lights are out of alignment with the actual runway - see pic.I can't seem to find any other occurrences, but has anyone experinced this? I have ORBX, REX sceneries and run the Navaids installer. Thanks Nige

    Frozen Lakes

    I am experiencing an unusual scenery problem which I have yet to stumble on a resolution. Hopefully, someone here has had simimlar problems and have successfully resolved them, or perhaps can use their knowledge of FSX and it's addons to determine a possible cause. My smaller inland lakes appear to be frozen over, even in the middle of the hottest summer days. See the attached picture. I am using: FSX + Acceleration GEX North America v2.10 UTX Canada v2.0 UTX USA v2.0 REX4 Texture Direct 4.6.2016.0622 Active Sky Next 1.0.6011.15407 Build 6011 DX10 Scenery Fixer v2.11 Any thoughts on how I an get my smaller lakes to look less like glaciers or icepacks?
  16. I have Eaglesoft Citation X 2.0 in FSX, on a Windows 8.1 computer that is way above the required specs. It seems the aircraft works flawlessly at random times after taking 20 minutes plus to load. otherwise it wont load in FSX. I have read through what people have said, and have excluded it from my virus/firewall program. but there is no change. With eaglesoft not supporting Windows 8, anyone have any ideas?
  17. I have downloaded the latest file from the vendor and it is Version 3.3. There is an SP2 file on the Leonardo website for 3.3 but it doesn't specify whether it is to update to or from Ver. 3.3 and I can't access it. So I'm hoping 3.3 is current. Thanks in advance.

    ADF and Nav keys

    Ctrl-Shift-A is suppose to select ADF but then what? Using keyboard how do you change the frequency? Least I assume one gets to change frequency. Same for Nav. N is key to select it but I'll be darn if I can figure out how to change it with any key afterwards? Perhaps nothing is changing due to the Ezdok addon and re-distribution of key functions?

    FXAA and SweetFX

    Hi guys. Need some help here. I didn't post this in the CTD board because I'm not having a crash with these tools. Here's what's been happening: I've used FSX with FXAA without any problems. No crashes whatsoever, and my FSX looked great. However, I bought a new PC and had to reinstall everything, including FXAA. The problem is, whenever I start FSX, the FSX screen appears and after a little while it dissapears, and FSX doesn't load. This doesn't generate any entries on the event viewer. So, I tried deleting the d3dl.dll from the FSX folder and FSX starts normally, however, I don't get any effects pressing the Pause key (for FXAA) or the Scroll Lock key (for SweetFX). I open FSX and FXAA side by side, press the Pause key and nothing happens. The weird thing is that, I tried downloading ENB, installed it (with the d3dl.dll file) and it works. So I tried using the d3dl.dll file that comes with ENB with FXAA and I still don't get any changes. Would anyone have any ideia what could be happening ? Does FXAA and SweetFX need the d3dl.dll module to work ? If they don't, what could be preventing those tools to load their effect ? My rig is: i7 6700, Nvidia GTX1080, 32GB RAM, ASRock Z170 OC Formula. I do have Nvidia inspector intalled, and FXAA is enabled. Thanks Eduardo

  22. Hey, so I seem to be having a problem with Wilcos 7x. Whenever I takeoff and im in the "Cabin view", the wingflex from inside the cabin seem to almost come over the wing and like the wing still stay there if you know what I mean. Like Some part of th wing flexes but it almost looks lik as if another part of the wing is static. Any suggestions?
  23. Hey! Because I had an anoying texture glitch Problem I decided to re install fsx... But uninstall this tons of modules, fixes, planes and other programs and whatnot brought me to the idea of an complete new install of windows to get it really clean. I thought this could be a good Chance to change to an newer operating system, but I am not sure if this works regarding different programms and license keys. Things like EZDOK, FSUIPC, Active sky, orbx, some aerosoft airports, fs realtime, GSX, all fs2crews.... and so on. Will they work if I change my operating system? (not naming operating systems was intended, because I dont want to know which OS is the "best", I want to know if anyone has experience with changing OS ;-) Thank you very much!
  24. Dear forum members I have an odd problem in FSX and to a lesser extend in Prepar3d as well. This is the situation: In FSX an am in the default C172, engines on and all ready to go. Now the moment I engage the autopilot while still on the ground (odd I know), the trimwheel starts spinning in a runaway fashion either up or down with no stop. Mind you there is no target altitude set on the autopilot, neither an vertical speeds has been set. But is still keeps spinning. I do not use external hardware or run plugins or add-ons. I have this with pretty much every plane in the game and to a lesser extend also in Prepar3d. On other computers as well. Also I can not really find anything from other uses reporting this. So is this realistic? Does this also happen in real life? Thank! Nico
  25. Not sure if everyone saw this, but I believe some of the streaming will be of flying in different FSX aircraft, as well as interviews with celebrities such as the Tuskegee Airmen, real life Concorde pilots, current Airbus pilots as well as Air Force personnel.
