  1. Well I'm still looking for a program for FSXSE. I was using UT2 then bought UTLive and followed the instructions to turn off UT2 (if I don't uninstall it) and all the rest and it sucks! Lots of ATC chatter, most gates full of AI parked there NONE landing, taxing etc. Waste of money. I was thinking of MyTraffic 6 or Traffic Global by Just Flight....... Why doesn't someone make a program that is customizable to the amount of ai traffic that actually does something instead of just parking at the gates? I have UTLive set at zero frame rate, populate 500 AI and I selected to have over 50 repaints! All I get is parked AI. With UT2-before all the updates, I had to wait to be pushed back out of the gates, get in line to taxi and wait for several landings before I got the ok to take off. Very realistic! Sometimes I just want to plane spot from the control tower......Anyone have a suggestion?
  2. The "compatibility" threads are so full of irrelevant comments and also pretty dated (pre-SP2) so please forgive these newbie questions but I truly have spent a lot of time searching for answers.. It seems there are four options for Addon AI 1. WoAI. Sadly, almost all FS9 files and although they seem to work fine, I keep getting various conflicts such as no VFR (GA) traffic, having to turn off aircraft shadows etc. I also suspect I'm getting some performance hits at busy hubs as well. Is there a reasonably easy fix? 2, My Traffic 6. I'm reluctant to get this as I've seen so many installation complaints. Also some of the models look pretty basic. Comments? 3. UT X. I always like F1 products but I get the impression that many of their programs are now getting minimal support, if any. Lots of complaints in their forums and very little recent activity... ???? 4. JustFlight 360. This seems the most comprehensive - GA, Military and Airline. But I cannot find any reference to it being Steam Edition compatible??? Any suggestions will be much appreciated Cheers Ian
  3. hello everyone, please forgive me for resurrecting a very old post, but I just got steam edition and have a problem but my exe xml document looks very different. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>EXE.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>True</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Disabled>True</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Name>Addon Application</Name> <Path>C:\MyPath\Addon.exe</Path> <CommandLine></CommandLine> <NewConsole>True</NewConsole> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon><Name>EZdok camera addon2</Name><Disabled>False</Disabled><Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\EZCA2\ezlauncher.exe</Path></Launch.Addon></SimBase.Document> I keep getting the permission asking every time I start up fsx se. Any help is very much appreciated. I'm just about tearing my hair out. I changed to steam to escape the boxed editions eternal bugs aha.
  4. I know that when you install a new software into FSX, occasionally you will get the "flight simulator is attempting to start X" dialogue, and after clicking 'Yes' FS remembers and will not ask you again. However, for as long as I've been using FSX-SE, the dialogues that ask me to run couatl from FSDT and as_btstp_config_manager from Active Sky Next show up every time I load FSX even if I click 'Yes'. I have plenty of software that required me to acknowledge this dialogue at one point, but these two are the only ones that show up at every startup. How can I fix this? It's getting irritating. For the record, I have the exact same addons installed in P3Dv2 but I've never had this problem, and of course I use admin rights whenever I install.
  5. Dear reader, After installing Aerosoft F16 Falcon (and the updates) in the FSX:SE simobjects/airplanes map I can only choose 3 airplanes in the FSX-SE "free flight" menu. Those are Texture.NSAWC_Blue and Texture.NSAWC_Brown of the Aerosoft F-16A 9 plane and the Texture.Shaw_20FW of the Aerosoft F-16C 120-9-88-370-184 plane. What could be wrong ?
  6. Just to let you all know FSX Steam Edition is on sale. There's an 80% discount. It's now selling for 4,99 euros. DAILY DEAL! Offer ends 15 Aug 7:00pm CEST Rgds, 'nuff
  7. Hi all, I'm having an issue with FPS on FSX-SE. Now, whilst I realize everyone's experience is different due to set ups, I would be really interested in hearing if people have had any similar issues. When I start my first flight of the day I am getting around 45 - 60 FPS (I have disable FPS limiters in NI so I can see the max, its normally set to 30). I am using the usual compliment of addons, ORBX, Carenado, REX with Soft Clouds ASN. If I then exit the flight and reload the exact same situation I only get around 10 - 13 FPS. Nothing has change between the two flights. Weather, times, location, traffic etc are all identical. This will continue for every flight I load and the only way to recover is to restart FSX. Which I guess is OK but not a solution ,especially when online. Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
  8. Hey everyone, I've recently decided to get back into FSX after a foray into DCS. I went ahead and bought the SE on sale after I heard all the raves about the improvements in performance. Now, I had uninstalled my boxed edition and all of the components, but when I fire up the Steam edition, I get a bunch of errors that say it can't find my ORBX scenery and I am left with a black sky (and everything looking jankety.) Is there somewhere I can find a step by step to getting me going? I'd really appreciate it! Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi guys, I've been struggling with this strange issue for some time now and couldn't really find any solution online. Here's what happens to me: on numerous occasions when I start a flight my hat switch wouldn't respond, it appears to be completely blocked. Then if I switch to outside view everything starts to go crazy - camera performs a weird backspin and rotates endlessly, engines of any airplane (doesn't matter default or addon) spool all the way up and that's it for me - all I can do is to shut down fsx. The only way I can somehow manage to have it under control is to restart the system and run ezca configuration tool. This happens every time I select a new aircraft, but also every now and then with no particular reason. Apart from it, the whole problem appears to have nothing to do with my system specs, as currently I'm using windows 10 and FSX:SE, with clean vanilla installation of many addons, including EZCA 1.18, but I was familiar with the issue when I used Acceleration and Win7 before... Has anybody of you encountered this weird bug? I'd appreciate any help. Best regards.
  10. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to scenery - once a mesh is installed would any scenery/textures automatically be applied to that mesh - other textures etc.? I've just installed the freeware photoreal scenery by Alberto Sanchez. When on the ground at Tenerife North there doesn't appear to be any markings apart from the runway ones. The apron texture is there as are the yellow taxiway signs but no taxiway centrelines at all. If I were to install another tenerife north airport (just an airport) at a higher priority than Alberto's scenery, would it show up OK or would it disappear or interfere? the photoreal scenery has a different mesh I think. NOTE I have Zinertek's HD Airport graphics and that seems to work on "everything" Thanks.
  11. Hi Everyone, Im sure this has already been brought up in the past but after 6 years i finally have a desktop computer again... yay! so long story short, ive been to the pmdg website, signed in and downloaded my existing orders . When i open the unwrapper and the install starts it comes up with a warning msg saying the download cannot complete because it failed to find the file location ( I had to change the location to the new SE version since i dont play the disk version anymore ) So ive read online about this "flight 1 " registry repair tool kit, ive downloaded it but now i have no idea what im supose to do next. help anyone?
  12. In the upper right hand corner, I used to get window titles. They are not currently showing up. Did I accidentally turn them off, and how do I get them back. Also, when I apply the brakes (and other such commands), the title doesn't show in the lower right hand corner.

    Air Trafic Issue

    Hello A couple of months ago I installed world of ai but fell out with it and uninstalled it pretty quickly. But now I have a problem- my game seems to be lacking in traffic even with the slider set to 100%! Can someone help? FirstOfficerFair
  14. For all the Steam users...may I ask if you are enjoying STEAM and what PC you have to make it enjoyable? I have a Gateway: I3-3220 Dual Core 6GB DDR3 Memory Intel HD Graphics:w/HDMI cable to monitor 1TB Hard Drive I have tried multiple times to use FSX-SE based on it's minimum pc requirements; however, was not able to enjoy a ["fluid" experience with MY current pc]*...I sought all the tips/tricks to get it going but as i added sceneries..FSDT for starters..with NO traffic and one lonely plane at the airport..the FPS...was horrific.... I am not scolding Dovetail or's a great product...i'm sure..for pc's other than mine.. *[Fluid Experience:=How i long for the fly FSX or FSX-SE or PD3 with smooth FPS with no noticeable studders...CAN I GET THERE-SIMMER FAMILY? Respectfully, Chris

    FSX Steam Problems

    Having problems with FSX SE communicating with the keyboard and Saitek X-55 thottle. The problem first became apparent when selecting reheat/afterburner. Selecting via the keyboard and the throttle is intermittent and even if it does light up it flames out. Operation seems better when I use the mouse to operate the throttle levers. Any ideas?
  16. I wonder if anyone might help with adjustment of the contact points for the above aeroplane. As it stands (pun intended!) the trijet sits nicely on the left & right main gears. The nose tyres are slightly below ground level, but the wheel rims are showing. It's the centre gear which is the main culprit! It's a few inches off the tarmac. I've investigated the contact points and understand the theory:- x, y and z values are +ve when forward of, above and to the right of the reference datum (default 0, 0, 0 in this config file). I successfully made the nosewheel sit on the tarmac, but cannot sort out the mains. If I increase the negative value for the centre main the plane leans to one side.. Here's the messy contact points of the original cfg file:- Points 9 & 10 should be for the centre gear. The -9.4062 is in between the -6 and -11.75 longitudinal values for the left & right mains which would be as it should be. Does it matter that the points list is not in a proper order? The centre gear splits the points for one of the main gears. I know that points 12-15 are scrape points (2 for the first number). I have since found a different iFDG MD11 config where the contact points are thus:- The points seem to be on top of one another but all the mains sit on the tarmac. You're going to say well, just use that set of points then! However, why did someone appear to create a set of quite precise points having different positions for each wheel? Do they tie in to the real MD-11 wheel positions (centre gear excepted)? I'm going to have another go, double checking the values, but another set of eyes is always helpful! Thanks. Mark.
  17. Anyone else experiencing this problem or have a solution to it ? My framerates are locked at 33FPS. With concorde X that is what I get until the INS is aligned. Then the framerates rollercoast between 18 and 33. Switch the INS off, and the frames stay up at 33. I have contacted FSLabs and they are looking in to it. Is anyone on this forum able to assist me in solving this ? Trevor
  18. I have an add onn called Sim Touch that allows me to use a touch screen for a lot of the clickable switches in FSX aircraft. I have 2 ear piercing sounds so loud they get the dogs barking in my street. One is an autopilot disconnect the other an altitude warning. Unfortunately the devs wont point me to the files in question and Im very annoyed at that so here I am. There is no sound folder in the Sim touch folder and I cant find them in the FSX sound folder. Where else could they be?

    Fsx boxed edition returns, sort of

    I haven't seen this posted anywhere, so apologise if it has and I missed it. It seems that FSX-SE is coming to a box near you. Sort of. Mad catz (Saitek) have announced that as part of a deal with dovetail to sell boxed versions of FSX-SE. There's no actual disc though. Instead as I've seen with a few other games recently, you get a serial key or download the sim from Steam. Either way, it's nice see fsx back on sale in boxed form, and regardless of how old the platform is, it could act as a gateway for a new generation of simmers, some of whom will look at other sims in the future. More info here. Best wishes, Jess B
  20. I posted this in another area but I think it should be here. That said I don't know where the issue lies. Ive had a full clean reinstall and also moved up to the steam edition. The problem it With the PMDG 737NGX Whether configuring the ailerons, Elevator and rudders Through FAX or FUSIPC the ailerons only move 2 degrees either direction the Elevators only move an inch and the Rudders hardly move at all. Can someone point me in the right direction or have they had a similar issue. As advised on Fruggle the &£& like the throttles to be through FSX which Ive done Thanks for any help Richard Preece
  21. I have a couple of quick questions related to the Steam Edition version of FSX... 1. Is it possible to get rid of the on-screen messages - brakes, exits, zoom level etc (In FS9 there is an edited language.dll that kills these messages) 2. Is it possible to install AES in the Steam Edition? So far I've had no success 3. Where is the FSX.cfg file located? Thanks Ian
  22. I previously uninstalled FSX and installed FSX:SE. All my previously installed WOAI remain in the old FSX directory. I have copied all AI aircraft files from the old FSX to the new FSX:SE directory structure. What other files do I need to copy across so that all AI routes appear in FSX:SE e.g. traffic.bgl or something similar? I am trying to avoid reinstalling all the AI again into FSX:SE. Thanks Stuart

    Please Anyone

    Would very much appreciate if anyone that has FSX steam only, could help me. I use to have DBS walk & Follow on FSX but cannot install on Steam is anyone out there they may have a solution or is there another program or anything you can use to walk around airports and planes without having to be in another sim object.
  24. Hi all. I wonder if any other Steam user is experiencing what I currently am. A recurring update, a Steam Client update released on 13th May and re-released on 15th May with a security fix, keeps popping up and asking me to restart Steam to install the update. It never says that it has failed, just keeps coming round again and again. How can I stop this? Iain Smith
  25. I'm trying to figure out why my night flying is so horrible. I used to love night flights in FS9 but FSX is a no-go. Now before you say FS9 was too bright and FSX is realistic, that's not the problem. I have watched dozens of night vids and my "environment" is nothing like that. For example, for landing, the runway isn't visible until maybe a couple miles out. I flew last week into SNA and had no idea where I was going. I wasn't able to land centerline at all because I simply cannot see the runway lights. Same with a trip I tried into PHX. Way off the center. I had no idea where the runway was and could not have even landed without ILS guidance. Something is clearly wrong with my setup if it's so dark that airports are essentially dark. The city is not very lit either but has improved marginally with ORBX global and LC. My airports are all default. Only tweak I implemented was that and cfg tweak to get rid of the huge fake balls you see in default FSX. I also have REX textures on the runways and taxiways. The problem seems to be with the light system though. What can I do? Any ideas??
