  1. Hi all. I'm a new guy. I know how to fly planes, but don't yet understand how to do so in FSX. I'd like to get familiar with the 737 NG, so installed FSX/SE, the Los Angeles scenery pack available through Steam, and also installed PMDG's 737NGX 800/900 Base Package. As I try to figure this out, any chance somebody could confirm that the person who posted this YouTube video was also using EZDOK, and the ability to easily look around the cockpit as shown in this video (starting at time 2:40) is not part of the software I've purchased? Many thanks!
  2. Hello everyone, I purchased PMDG 747 Queen of the Sky II yesterday but I am having problem installing it. When I install it and try to run, it does not ask me to put in the registration key. I am not sure when do I put that. After my aircraft opens up, the aircraft looks frozen with the gear up and the engine is stopped. Am I doing something wrong? Need help on this, thank you.
  3. Hello Everyone, I am sure everyone is aware of this problem and I need help. I have Windows 10 and I keep on getting the FATAL ERROR MESSAGE on my FSX. Is there anyway to fix this? Thanks in advance.
  4. FSX/FSX-SE?

    I have a question. I recently purchased JFK scenery from and the installation went smoothly etc and I installed AI via world-of-ai but when I run FSX I don't see any aircraft in the airport but there is a normal duplicate JFK and all the aircraft is operating there. Is there anyway to fix it so it works on my new JFK airport? Thanks in advance.
  5. FSX/FSX-SE?

    Hi their everyone new to the forums but not to simulators though admittedly my main forte is train sims other then flight.(still got my old MSTS CD floating around somewhere). To tell the truth I have kinda lurked around a bit before but what made me finally join is I have a CTD involving FSX that I can't find anyone else having before(unless Google just isn't giving me good links) Though don't know if asking for help here is OK or wait until I can post it to the CTD forum. Anyways I think i've started to ramble so I shall take me leave for now and hope y'all have a good day.
  6. Why Is The Directory Colour In Red Please Help. Couldnt Find Any Solutions To It...!
  7. Is there general agreement that a windows pc tower can run FSX (my copy is over 5 years old and is not the steam version) better than a laptop? I would be running either Windows XP with service pack 3 or else Windows 7.
  8. Hey everyone, I believe I have solved the joystick woes with Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. I have done 2 days of stress testing FSX and P3D with multiple installs of the program and OS, and I haven't had a disconnect yet. Before I go further - I want to give my thanks to certain individuals who have helped me and inspired me to solve this joystick annoyance. 1) Word Not Allowed for having his awesome guides 2) AVSIM's staff/team for creating the amazing Hardware/Software Guide to FSX/P3D 3) Peter Dowson's FSUIPC utility (it got me through the periods when no joystick fix was avialable) 4) Orbx Team - Thank you Global and your Tips and Tricks Forum section 5) NickN's - FSX Computer System Guide 6) Ranak Jones of "Rogue's Guide to Acquisition: Principles of Final Frontier" for sending me a spare XFX 6970 for my system and pointing me to Windows 8 Registry to search for USB Device GUIDs potential errors 7) Microsoft MSDN for having Windows 8.1 Pro for testing/evaluation purposes only. 8) LM Prepar3d Developer Network Testing: 1) FullScreen FSX in Eyefinity Mode (5760x1200) for 3 hours+ 2) Windowed FSX in triple screen mode and 1920x1200 for 4 hours+ 3) Multiple active windows on top of FSX Windowed in background for 4 hours+ 4) Testing was done with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports FSX testing was in Win 8.1 and 8, and P3D 1.4 was in Win 8. My System Cpu: i5-750 (intel 1156 cpu) overclocked to 4.1Ghz Memory: 8GB DDR3 Storage: 1xSamsung 830 SSD at Sata III (Main drive), Intel 80GB SSD at Sata II speeds, 1 TB hitachi mechanical HDD at sata II <- all connected to PCIEx4 Sata III controller) Motherboard: MSI Fuzion p55A - has native usb 2.0 and Renesas USB 3.0 controller Video: New XFX 6970 2GB with latest ATI drivers OS - Windows 8 Pro Clean install / Windows 8.1 Clean Install Joystick: Thurstmaster Hotas X Windows 8 Solution - (FSX / Prepar3d 1.4) 1) Make sure power management features are off or set to high 2) Most important setting is USB Selective Suspend Setting is Disabled (we all knew this) Honestly, that setting does not disable USB selective suspend in Windows 8 (this is for Windows 8 only), like it promises. The power management on USB devices is set to Selective Suspend Please see your HID Devices, USB Input Device and USB Root Hub Devices - They are STILL set to Suspend. You have to turn OFF the manual power savings one by one to all USB Devices/Compositive Devices and the all the USB Root Hubs (this is v.important). If it says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and is checked then please UNCHECK it For example like this This was discovered when I was searching for Joystick UID's in Windows 8 based on Ranak's suggestion. This is where stuff gets weird for both Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. I am no registry expert, but GUID's for my joystick is half correct and half backwards as compared to one listed in FSUIPC's ini file See Pic - Windows Registry And my Joystick GUID in FSUIPC So for some reason half of the GUID is backwards in Registry - I do not know if that is normal or not but that led me to search all the usb devices/ports in Device Manager. Here I found all the power saving features were somehow enabled when Windows Power Management is explicitly set to disable. Recap So for Windows 8 Pro ONLY - Uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power and make sure Windows Power management also has Selective Suspend set to Disabled. Prepar3d 1.4 - Please have JOYSTICKS=1 in [CONTROLS] in P3D.cfg (more on this later) Windows 8.1 Pro (RTM Version) - FSX TEST No joystick disconnects with 1 Setting change Only - Joystick works in Windows 8.1 Pro I am seeing that all devices still have the USB Power Management check in windows 8.1 but in FSX with PNW, and Bowerman addon, Carenado B200 - Joystick did not disconnect. The only crash I got was from latest FSUIPC 4.92. If in Windows 8.1 you have joystick disconnects, then just turn off all those power management features as listed in for Windows 8. Miscellaneous Info FSUIPC I have it installed but it Zero Joystick Configuration in all tests. I hope this helps everyone - as Windows 8.1 Pro definitely works fantastic with no joysticks issues so far. And Windows 8 works with all power management features individually turned off in all those sections listed. Have a great day, Skywolf
  9. Hello everybody.

  10. i need a t'way airlines (korea) repaint for the default 737
  11. Hello, new to this forum but had a weird(ish) problem with FSX SE there during the week, that I thought i'd share. To cut to the chase, i wanted to try get rid of shimmering for some building, without success. Came across a forum that suggested hacking the General10.fx file - This caused a major malfunction in the sim with everything more or less appearing quite black. To eradicate, i did a repair through steam, this fix everything bar one annoying little thing - my A2A C182 landing gear was missing. To fix, i simply deleted my fsx.cfg file. It gets auto created on fsx startup, if missing. Btw, previous to that, tried deleting cameras.cfg (a suggestion by Kevin Menard) but didn't do the trick. This was all after reinstalling orbx scenery and the like! Finally, for fsx se, have found that it's best to start ChasePlane independently. Auto-starts were causing my plane to be completely invisible in outside view.
  12. In the future, when the commercial version arrive, will chase plane In-Sim View Selector work in fullscreen mode?
  13. The home screen appears, does the index of scenarios, then makes the bases of the new scenarios. Then a Windows message appears that says "Serious Error Windows will restart the program". Restart the program and the same sequence occurs and a message appears that says "Serious Error, windows will close the program" and effectively when accepting the program is closed. I already did the test to start FSX under the problem of compatibility starting FSX in W7 or XP, but the same, the problem persists.
  14. Hi, I have problem with lights on day time, can anyone help me turn this off or uninstall?
  15. So Im having a bit of a problem, I decided it's time to get real in FSX, which means buying aircraft. So I bought the Aerosoft A320 Family Bundle With the A318/A319 A320 and A321, The PMDG 737 800/900 NGX, and the PMDG 777 Base Pack and the 300 Expansion. My FPS is decently high due to me using minimum graphics around 15-32 FPS but when it dips below around 15 fsx stutters then comes back to life, and randomly it dips down to 0.8 fps which is really random. The reason my graphics are on minimum are due to the fact that I have an Intel Core i5 M 450 and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4300/4500 Series. It would be nice if I can get some help with this issue.
  16. FSX/FSX-SE?

    I'm not sure what to put into the THRUST LIM page on the FMC and where to get the information. Any help?
  17. when flying gliders (what i fly exclusively) atc calls out type experimental.. which is a minor detail until you try to land at a busy airport and atc announces 'go around" when your 30 feet off the ground on final.. gliders can't go around and should always have landing priority how do you get fsx (steam edition) to recognize type glider and give you the proper landing priority? it gets a lil crazy trying to avoid a 737 flying up your word not allowed and trying to clear the runway in time
  18. Hi everyone. I've recently discovered that at some airport, such as EHAM and EGLL, the ATIS is not working. Although usually two frequencies are listed, I can't pick up the ATIS tuning either of them. Nor is there a 'tune ATIS' option on the ATC window. I have recently updated FSX:SE navaids using, and i'm wondering if this might have caused the problem, but nothing seemed amiss until a couple of days ago. Certainly all of the smaller airports I usually fly in and out of seem unaffected. Any help to fix this would be most appreciated!
  19. Hello, new to this site. Been on FSX for about a year, a bush pilot rather than jet pilot. Here to ask a question - has anyone ever managed to catch up with the Ekranoplan - the Caspian Sea Monster - in the Aleutians cargo run mission? I have done this mission god knows how many times and only caught a glimpse of it twice. Anyone had more luck, and how did you manage it?
  20. Yes hi I wanted to know if there were any Reno air races jet class race missions. if not how do I go about making one? let me know what to do. thanks
  21. Dear gentlemen (and ladies), I have experienced strange problem with my computer when running FSX. First of all, this only happens when running FSX (and ASE, Radar Contact, FSACARS). With any other game or software it doesn`t happen. When airborne after some time the computer goes to hibernation. Usually it happens after 1.5 - 4 hours. When woke up, I`m still able to run FSX and other programs, but the fps in FSX go to single digits. Can someone point me somewhere? I`ve tried cleaning the computer with Ccleaner, Ad-aware (nothing significant found) and defrag the disc. Any suggestions where could be the problem? Thank you.
  22. FSX/FSX-SE?

    I have a i7 7700k not clocked and 32gb of ram at 2134mgz and 1060 3gb. Do I need to upgrade to another card I'm max out on settings and the screen flutters when I pan to left and right. Also when ASN download new weather FSX loads the scenery and textures with the window coming up In mid flight ...
  23. Hey, I'm a new FSX user coming from X-Plane 11. Just thought I'd give FSX a go. I'm not having much luck though, after a while I got a grip with the throttle controls, and views and stuff like that. I'm still having issues with turning any knobs or switches in the cockpit of any plane.... What am I missing?

  25. FSX/FSX-SE?

    Good evening, This is my first post in this forum. I write because when I'm flying the AeroSim's 787 and I move a fix in the CDU to fly direct, when I click on "EXEC", the simulator inmediatly crashes. I try to remove each addon one by one, but I can't find which is the problem. Does any one know how to resolve this failure? Thank you very much.
