  1. Hi guys I am interested in buying a Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog flight stick system but i need to know if the Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog is compatible with FSX and where can i find ready profiles (mappings) for it? Also can users of this system inform me about the + & - points of this stick. It looks great in the stores but will i be able to use it as an all rounder joystick setup with FSX, H.A.W.S and similar simulators? If not what would be a good stick with quality materials? kind regards
  2. hi there, i know it's not a new add-on but i was wondering if anyone could tell me the 'requirements' in order to get VNAV working on the feelthere e-jets v2 (175 and 195). I've tried following the manual but i must be missing something as VNAV just will not arm or select for me after take-off. i was hoping someone with experience of this addon might be able to give a list of things that must be satisfied in order for VNAV to work in this unusual bird. eg.... - A/T on and armed - Speed controller set to FMS - Climb power set ? - etc - etc thanks in advance if anyone can help james
  3. 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

  5. Good morning, who is ready for this years 2013 FSX Thunderbird Flight Demonstration Squadron! I am Michael Evans, Left Wing for the FSX Thunderbirds. We are a new flight demonstration team and are looking to get our name out there. We were created about a month ago. We all share a passion for formation flying. We aim to emulate the realism, pride, and precision of the United States Air Force Demonstration Squadron. There have been a couple of Thunderbird Teams in the past, but we hope to stay around here for a while. We currently only have 4 pilots and are hoping to expand and gain that fan base that we are looking for. Our website is completed, but our forums are still getting all of that necessary Thunderbird information to keep this team as realistic as we can get. Any hints and tips are appreciated, and I hope we get good enough to participate in a few shows coming this next season. Now that ground month is over, we can get up in the air and give you all that performance that you can only get from this years FSX Thunderbirds.

    PMDG 737 NGX Activation problem

    Hello pilots! Today I am buy PMDG 737NGX and after install i run FSX and enter the activation key and after enter it..... See the pictures thanks. Sorry for my Enlgish. Vlada
  7. I've recently returned to flight simming with the release of the PMDG 777. On all the flights I've made since the T7 release I'm wrong on the selected runway when arriving at my destination. The destination winds in AS2012 help me plan on what runway to expect, and then as I get closer, I check again and confirm my plan is still correct, but when I contact the tower for landing clearance, it is always another runway in the opposite direction. I'm not a newbie to flight simulation and I understand in r/l how winds change at desintations, but I get conflicting wind information from AS2012 that causes me to plan for one runway, but then the tower clears me for a completely opposite set of runways. If it is clear that I'm doing something completely wrong, feel free to send along correction. If this is just a flaw due to problems with the FSX weather engine and cannot be overcome, then I'll understand. Thanks for any assistance/suggestions you can pass along.

  12. Name: Big Budget Blockbuster (part 1) Category: Commercial Product Videos Date Added: 20 November 2013 - 05:27 PM Submitter: Short Description: None Provided Big Budget Blockbuster Welcome to the film business! We have a series of adventures in store for you, all related to the next Big Budget Blockbuster. First up is a visit to Hawaii where the filming is just wrapping up. In parts 2 and 3 the action is … to be continued! Each add-on mission for FSX includes: Detailed aeronautical charts of your departure, route, and arrival FSX Nav Log, Flightplan and GPS with programmed waypoints Real world voice actors with written text of entire dialog Part 1: Welcome to Hawaii! Your old buddy from school, who is now a big shot movie producer, has invited you to Hawaii to check out the set of his latest action movie and to attend the wrap party with the cast and crew. You’re meeting up with him at the film’s makeshift production office at the Lihue Airport on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. Today’s early morning flight will take you from Lihue, around the island, through the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, along the Na Pali Coast to the film’s dramatic shooting location, and finally to Princeville Airport for the wrap party.

  13. My first attempt at a blog. I had much to talk about so the video runs in two parts at a total time of about 2 hours. My second flight blog talking about the joys of MegaSceneryEarth and a rant about the cursor bug. Run-time about 60 minutes. Of note in these videos is that there are no tricks or gimmicks used to trick the viewer into believing frame rates are something other than what they really are. This was filmed exclusively with FRAPS running and nothing else. There is no video time compression tricks and on FS Recorder post render video. This is raw live FSX at it's best. Enjoy!

    My FSX activation does not work

    Hi guys so i bought FSX a few days ago and i was really excited to play the game. Then i install the game and then when i started it up i typed in the serial (which was shown from my fsx box) and then i get an error. So then i clicked activate later and played a short flight but then the game shutdown without an error so i was really unhappy if anyone out there could help me i would be glad! i really want to play this game. oh and also i tried re-installing it many times but it does not work. btw i am running on windows Vista :smile: - masterrezaul123
  15. I have a question; how come when i start recording with fraps the frames drop significantly with 1920x1080x32? They also drop with 720 but not as much. The default resolution(i forgot what it was) has no frame drop with fraps. What is it about 720 and 1080 that make fraps want to eat fps? I also tried bandicam and same thing! can't put my finger around it and i searched for an answer and can't figure it out.

  17. Hello all! Anyway, I was wondering how to setup the Saitek X-52s LCD screen to display FSX related things such as frequency, altitude, ext. I have the X-52 not the X-52 pro.
  18. After months of flying FSX, I started to miss my FS9 Avenger so last week I installed my Avenger and 45 repaints into FSX. Beautiful, just beautiful. I didn't realize how much I missed the ol' turkey. The only thing I would add would be some camera views, primarily for the external views. So I was wondering if anyone has created any?? Thanks --WH

    Support for FSX Has Come to an End

    In an email sent to a variety of flight simming sites today, Microsoft announced that Customer Support for FSX has expired. In the announcement, Jennifer Paige, Community Manager for Microsoft Studios said; "Customer Support for FSX has expired here at Microsoft. What does this mean? We will no longer be answering support emails or hosting various updates and download files for the FSX product. Why has it ended? It simply ran its course, all products will hit a support expiration at some point, FSX has hit that date." Microsoft will announce the closure of support in the XBOX forums and will provide links to the various community sites for fellow flight sim enthusiasts. AVSIM will be one of those sites. You can join our forum discussion here.
  20. I'm coming to present you my problem with FSX these last days which causes me some headaches... This happen with all my addons and only in Virtual Cockpit. Here we go: When the weather is good (no fog): Everything is OK. When the weather is bad (with fog): Everything goes wrong. If anyone has a solution.... Bruno.

  24. Folks, I have an idea for all airport developers. Some of us want relaism down to the really minor details. Me, like, i would imagine many others, want to park up at the right terminal... SO, why not, when you taxi in and request permission to taxi to the gate, can't we have options for, for example "Terminal 1/Terminal 2/ Terminal 3" ? I know some dont use ATC, but i figure for those who do, and those who rely on it for airport services, it may be usefull ? If this topic has been discussed/ is stupid/ is irrelevent becuase some developers use this, then i request for this thread to be deleted. Thank You -Andy
