  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. Hi I am a new member to Avsim and look forward to reading all the valuable information in the forums. I have been having a number of problem with FSX which has caused my system to crash with fatal errors for a number of months. Today I found a video on you tube which I think has solved my problem and I would like to share with anyone who is having the same problems as I had. My problem was that I had to do a factory reset due to other problems and when I reloaded FSX certain keys on my keyboard caused a fatal error and took me out back to the desktop. I tried everything to fix the problem but nothing worked until I saw in the video that SP! had to be reloaded before reinstalling FSX. SP2 would be automatically reinstalled when the acceleration expansion pack was reinstalled. I followed these instruction and Bingo everything now works perfect. If anyone else is having this problem I hope this explanation will be of some help
  4. Hi I recently purchased the VRinsight MCP Combo II for Boeing and installed the VRi software from their website. Everything works fine. All the EFIS buttons, all the MCP buttons, and all the Com buttons except for the 8 buttons at the top of the Com area work perfectly. Documentation not too clear. Does anyone know where the software file for the VRI software resides so I can edit the buttons? Actually file name and location? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thx, Tom
  5. Hi I just have a quick question wether or not tailwind and headwind is simulated in fsx? I'm flying the NGX737 and occasionally I get really strong tailwinds or a really strong headwind but it doesn't seem to affect my plane at all. The same with speed really. So if I'm doing a flight that is say 2 hours long and I get like 50+ tailwind it would still take at least 2hrs if not more. And for the speed Like when the FMC estimates to arrive at the destination at a certain time and if I increase the cost index and fly at a higher speed it doesn't change at all, still predicts the same.

I have the PMDG 737 600 through to the 900 and all was well until my desktop had a really bad day I thought that I had sorted everything out but now when I am running FSX or though the PMDG aircraft seem to be in the flight sim aircraft file they don't show up in the list of aircraft in the choice of aircraft when you want to change from say the default 737 to the PMDG 737ng they just don't show up in the list . can some one please tell me what I have done wrong or messed up my most sincere thanks to all who read my post and even more to those that try to help me many thanks

    B-36 peacemaker

    Just wondering if there was any interest in a b-36 for fsx. worked on one a few years ago and just never finished it. Asking the community if maybe I should, yes or no.
  8. 1st post on a forum - should say that I know just enough re: computers to get myself into real trouble, to whit: I have Windows 7 X 64 O/S and have installed FSX gold edition. when I went to install the acceleration disc, window popped up saying "setup failed to initialize". I had Acceleration installed once before, but due to my lack of knowledge managed to corrupt FSX and had to start over. I am trying to "uninstall" acceleration, have gone through the: Control panel/pgms & features\acceleration\uninstall. it did not completely uninstall it. then went through reg.edit\find, and deleted any references to acceleration, or fsx acceleration. that evidently did not do it. When trying to re-install FSX SP2 (it has what I need) I got another window saying that SP2 cannot be installed because "Microsoft Flight Simulator X acceleration is already installed and has SP2 as part of the program. I'm thinking there is a "marker"(?) in the registry, if there is, I do not know how to find it. Could use any and all suggestions. Bests; NickN
  9. So FSX has ran great for months, can fly 14 hrs without OOM`s or other issues. I did upgrade my BIOS the other day on the ASUS P8P67Pro Rev 3.1 as I`m going to stick a 7 series card in it before I get a gen 3 motherboard and CPU. My overclock is stable and temps are very good, better than with the older bios I was running. Maybe someone has an idea. I did install FSInn & FS Copilot the other day but they all seem to be working without issue.

    Please HELP sweetfx issue

    Ok I have a gaming rig that can do just about anything. The problem I have is I use sweetfx to adjust the graphics in Microsoft Flight Simulator X and in windowed mode the graphics are perfect. Exactly what I want my simulator to look like. I use a 3 monitor set up. Here's the problem. When I put this is full screen mode the graphics are the same but the fps makes the game unplayable. When I take out the sweetfx files out of fsx directory the full screen works but graphics are obviously default. How can I make fsx with sweetfx work in full screen mode? I've spent hours and hours on forums but no real answers. Please I know someone out there has the answer. Thanks for the replies on this. I'm running 16gb ram gtx670 4gb AMD 8750 8 core trust me it can run anything.
  11. I need to get another copy of TileProxy. But the only place I can find to download it is at Sourceforge.net. But the site does not work. Any other place to get it? Thanks for your help.
  12. 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.
  13. Hi After many years without FSX I thought I was ready to come back?? things change very fast these days and I did not give the make of my GPU much thought .I had read that ATI was not recomended for FSX win7 64 Bit So this silly old fella bought :excl: AMD :blush: and I think I am paying the Price Should I sell it and get a nVidia and loose 250pounds or is there now a way ATI will work with FSX.The real problem is on landing be it over a UK airport or on a lake in the centre of Australia the grafics go haywire and I loose all sight outside the cockpit just big flashes of coloured blocks and streaks. I have just read as far as graphic cards here THE FSX COMPUTER SYSTEM: THE BIBLE - BY: NickN Please Help me decide. Should I sell my AMD GPU and buy a new nVida one Or is it posible to get the ATI one to work with FSX. My full spec is in my Profile But at my age now I dont think I have time left to try to sort it out myself, Before the GrimReaper becomes my Co Pilot. Regards Rex
  14. 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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mB4J9s0z_lU 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!

    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
  16. Some more shots from playing around with Active Sky Next. Straight V key shots. Enjoy!
  17. Hi to all I am a new comer to the forum and really need some help I am also new to running PMDG 737ngx I am really bowled over by to me this wonderful product every thing was running fine until early today when my curser just stopped doing anything it would not work anything on any of my PMDG aircraft but is fine on all the FSX aircraft also I seemed to have lost the ability to drag & drop if there is any one with any sort of help or advice I will be most grateful many thanks for reading this post lonewlf45
  18. After having installed FSX for some time with reasonable outcomes, I have now install the PMDG 737NGX program and after some tweaking and following the instructions and some tutorials it worked fine on a single 24" screen. I actually have 3 screens installed and in multi-screen mode it is OK but I have to drag windows etc around each time I fly. In surround vision over 3 screens it operates but will not allow me to to move the view back far enough to see the panel and the view ahead so I have stuck with the simpler multi-screen mode for now. My real problem at the moment however, is that I have since installed EXdok and FSCoPilot and FS2CoPilot and now FSX crashes completely (Fatal Error) before it has even loaded. My ideal solution is to find someone who lives in Melbourne, Australia who could come out and assist in the complete set-up of my system. Otherwise some patient on-line instruction would be warranted. I am an aviation enthusiast not a IT expert and don't want to be going from one system problem to another as I take my flying seriously in furthering my aviation education. Can anyone help??
  19. Hello there everybody. About Me Glad to have found this place! Just registered so I thought I might as well throw out an introductory thread here. My name is Jan, I'm from Germany, 27 years old. I live in the city of Trier (right in-between Germany and Luxembourg) and have recently received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. Currently, the Master program is draining a lot of my time BUT when I do find some free hours I enjoy studying aviation. How I got interested in flying is sorta interesting and unconventional I guess. As a kid, my family and me did a lot of travelling. A *lot* of flying from Cologne/Bonn, Dusseldorf and Frankfurt in the early 90s - mostly to Tenerife, Lanzarote and the other Canary Islands. I was a bit of a nervous flyer as a kid (but what do you expect at 7-12 years old haha). At 14 I travelled from Frankfurt to Costa Rica for vacation, at 16 it was Frankfurt to Bakersfield, CA and, my last flight so far, from Frankfurt to Shanghai (over Dubai with Emirates, best cabin experience ever I have to say, great airline) in 2009. But even though as a kid and teenager I was interested in all things technological (and I distinctly remember drawing a lot of 'blueprints' of my own cabin layouts for 737s as a kid during vacations, impressed by the flight there), I never quite got into aviation. This changed - and the reason for that change was probably as weird as it gets. It was the tragic crash of Germanwings Flight 9525. For some reason I couldn't help but read up on all the details of the incident as soon as they were released. The horrible tragic details, the reasons - as much as we know at this point -, everything hit really close to home for some reason. Maybe it's literally because - in aviation terms - it did hit close to home. After all there's not exactly a lot of serious incidents over Germany and/or with German airlines. Then I looked into other aviation incidents. I stumbled over the docu-tainment series Mayday and soon found myself sitting through entire nights, struggling to go to bed at 5 in the morning after who-knows-how-many hours of watching episodes. As much as I understand that it's dramatized, as many details as they may mess up, I strongly believe the series is well-made and does a great job introducing basic aviation concepts. The unbelievable neglect of Eastern Air Lines Flight 401 pilots (looking at a broken landing gear indicator light, not realizing they're hitting terrain) or Aeroflot Flight 593 (children in the cockpit, disabling autopilot, stalling), the incredible events aboard Aloha Airlines Flight 243 (fuselage blown off) or British Airways Flight 5390 (cockpit windshield blown out, pilot semi-ejected) and many other fascinated me and still do to this day. Then FSX:SE went on sale and, even though I'm a poor student, for 5 bucks I couldn't resist. I was lucky enough to have a fellow student, who was equally engaged by aviation (and who had actually actively attempted to become a Lufthansa pilot at age 18-19 before enrolling in the same Computer Science program as me) and we both got FSX. Learning, studying and exchanging what we've learned over Skype or, occasionally, at local bars. It's really, really cool to have someone in real-life, who you can talk to about a passion. I won't forget the evenings and nights that we've spend drinking and talking about new things we found out: how to approach (switching off the autopilot during an ILS landing in a 757 at 2000 ft above terrain and touching down with the flight director was a big challenge), when to retard throttle and flare during a landing, the difference between LNAV and VNAV, level change and vertical speed. There were thousands of intricate little details we discovered through trial-and-error or research and were eager to exchange. One time we even went as far as testing each other on the aviation alphabet at the bar (alpha bravo charlie, not sure what the exact English term actually is haha). Giving hints until we had it memorized. Lots of fun (really)! Anyways, he's already had flight experience at a local small airfield with a flight school. We've decided to get our pilot's licenses when we have jobs and can spare the dough! Questions So, that's the introduction out of the way! In preparation for my personal first actual flying experience I would like to ask a couple very basic question (I love the 172 and the flight school at the airfield does offer flight training in it, so the current plan is to choose that aircraft for learning how to fly): #1: They say: "Don't use trim to fly the plane. Fly the plane and then trim." I understand what that means. Sometimes it's tempting to make any change in nose-height with trim. Obviously that's not the idea. But I'm wondering how pilots 'transition' if you will. Say you're flying at 0deg pitch angle. Now you want to descend and lower the nose to -5deg. You do this with the yoke and not the trim to follow the rule I put above. Now you're holding the yoke at this position and want to trim the aircraft so that it stays in this attitude. Now you'll have to roll the trim wheel up and at the same time, with one hand, let the yoke push back into neutral. Is that really how it's done? Trading yoke input for trim like that? You can really tell that I have zero actual cockpit experience here, it seems very weird in theory. #2: Flying turns Again, with zero actual non-simulator experience, I'm trying to prepare for basic maneuvers in the air when it comes to that (of course you don't get thrown into those situations without preparations from the flight school but I like to do as much work as I can on my own before). When I make a turn in FSX, I think (and keep an eye on) four things at the same time: Bank Angle (don't exceed, don't undershoot, 30-35deg I think it is for standard turn? Not sure at all though?) Vertical speed (the aircraft will tend to lose altitude during a turn, counteract with subtle pull-back on yoke, keep vertical speed at +/-0) Heading (where am I turning? start leveling wings early so as not to overshoot the intended new heading The Ball (stepping on the ball, left rudder for left turns and right for right, keeping the turn coordinated, don't slip) Is that list correct and comprehensive? Are there factors I'm not seeing? Am I trying to keep tabs on too many things at one time? I'd be interested where your eyes are during a turn maneuver. I honestly struggle with all four factors - especially when you're assuming VFR and still try to actually mostly have your eyes on the 'scenery'. Any tricks, tips? Or just practice? And that's it for now. Thanks for answers ahead of time and cheers! (Also, bonus points to anybody who recognizes my username here )

  21. Hello Avsim-Community, I am new to the forums and actually quite new to flight siming aswell. I have some questions regarding scenery addons and two specific addon planes. I guess you get those kind of questions a lot but I wanted to hear specific answers on my questions, because all the research I did confuses me, because there are many many oppinions of course - in the end it'll still be up to me though I know So a few months back I installed my FSX again after probably 3 years and really started to get interested into flight siming. I got the PMDG 737NGX for my birthday and quite liked the depth of it. I did both tutorials, but I am struggling to really learn more about the plane. That biggest hinderance for me is the flight planning, it seams to me that you have to get PFPX and Topcat to really plan your flights properly, those tools are expensive though, and I don't know if it's worth it. Aren't there other ways to plan your flight for free. I know of "rfinder" but that doesn't tell you certain things like takeoff data and so on. To summarize my first "topic" so to say: - How did you learn how to fly the PMDG 737NGX? - How do you plan your flights properly? I also realized that I'd enjoy some GA aircrafts aswell (VFR flying), such as the A2A products: Cessna 172 or the new Cherokee 180. I really like there walk arround and "taking care" system. So the first question is: - Would you get the Cessna or the Cherokee from A2A? Coming to my last question. I thought, I'd like a nice scenery to fly a GA aircraft in. I am thinking of a ORBX scenery. I just wanted to here your oppinion about the different regions they offer and which one you'd recommend the most for GA flying. I had an eye on the PNW scenery, but the Australian, New Zealand and also the Northern California scenery are looking very great! My only concern was that ORBX offers payware airports in those regions, so you'd have to spend even more money, or are the airports in the scenery packs modeled better non the less? Okey enough text for now. I hope I posted that in the right section of the forum. Thank you for your help in advance. Greetings, Tim (Voxelfox)

    Finally I did it

    Hello everybody! Let me shortly introduce myself.I am guy from Switzerland and a newbie in the avsim forum here but not in the world of flight simulator. The first version I got was Flight Simulator for Windows 95. For the last 6 months I was totally fascinated by DCS Warthog (a really excellent fighter simulation) but since a few weeks I am into FSX again. Of course there is a lot of work to setup all scenery stuff, aircrafts that are worth buying but since a few days I am really happy with my configuration (see my signature below). Last weekend I finally bought PMDG 737NGX and all I can say now is WOOOWW. It's just great to see such a high level of realism. It's just like flying that thing in real (although I don't know about flying in real).And yesterday evening I finally managed to succeed the whole tutorial flight (yes, the tutorial with almost 100 pages...) after several errors and cancelled approaches. I must say I am a little proud :)I am looking forward to my next (but also simple) flight. Best regards

    FS Global 2010

    Hi there, This is my first post so hope i have done it correctly. I'm fairly new to simming, i have FSX and some of the FTX global products but i'm really stuggling with FS Global 2010. Is there a step by step proceedure anywhere, this is the most difficult product i've come across so far. Many thanks Sergantbilko
  24. Hi guys, so I recently bought a new pc for maxing out graphics on fsx. Some of my PC specs are: Intel Core i7 4790k at 4.6GHZ cooled by a Corsair H100i EVGA Superclocked GTX 770 It is more than capable of producing ultra graphics, however it isn't. I have REX 4 with all of the textures at 4096, I am running Orbx Global and Vector, FTX England, REX essentials Plus Overdrive and Aerosoft airports. It is running very smoothly however, it looks nothing like the ones on YouTube. The water and the clouds don't seem to HD even though they are on max settings. Some of the videos on Youtube have been produced by computers with slower CPUs and graphics cards and they still look better than mine. Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Josh.
