  1. Hello i'm flying on FSX with freeware aircrafts that can't follow a SID or STAR. Is it possible to turn the SID/STAR waypoints into a waypoint that's like in the middle of the flightplan? I want to fly on VATSIM but i can't follow SID & STAR screenshot
  2. I'm in Simbrief planning a flight from KLAS to KSFO. When I import my data from Simbrief, my procedures weren't copying inserting, so I went to manually insert them. Only to find that my SID (JOHKR3) does not exist, nor does any form of JOHKR. A googling makes me think the data being displayed is from around cycle 2103. However, you'll see in the screenshot, I have old SIDs and my AIRAC cycle is current. Same is happening for STARs. It's been doing this since I freshly installed everything on a new PC.
  3. Hi I am working on how to be able to link a HID Macro button to a certain gauge or the other way around I am VERY new to coding and such, and are beaten by the confusing situation regarding coding gauges and macros I am trying to code a macro to my APU gauge in my flightsim FSX I did find a default FSX command to toggle APU, but my gauge wont react to the command I am using a spare keyboard so I cant tell if a command is working without the gauge activating also as a ref Any help is much appreciated
  4. Hello everyone, for about two days now, I notice that with my GSX, at every airport the jetways can no longer move or when I request to operate the jetways it crashes gsx and I am forced to restart it, what can depend on ? what do you recommend me to do ? Thanks P.S even with the toggle jetways command from Fenix, the jetway doesn’t move…
  5. Sorry to bother you all.. but could someone help me with GSX? Just did a clean (1st) install on my system and no matter if I try to load into a addon or default airport it says: "There are no parkings available at this airport" when trying to open the in-game menu - which just says that it's loading and to please wait... Any ideas? I'd greatly appreciate the help 🙂 My game install is fresh and I don't have many mods: PMDG, Navigraph, two addon airports, FSRealistic Pro and that's about it. All installed within the last week.
  6. I have these weird mouse stutters/lag, every time I use PACX for FSX-SE (im still poor enough to only being able to fly fsx), it seems like every 3rd sec there is a mouse lag where the mouse becomes unresponsive for a certain amount of time. Has anyone had the same experience? or any fixes for such?
  7. I don't understand why but after I changed some settings, I see both up close and far away, the mountains and terrain (as you can see from the photos posted below) in low quality. How can I fix it ? I am also willing to send my settings and/or any log files or CFG.txt https://imgur.com/a/wyvnw3U
  8. I've recently installed the AIG mod. First, the reason I'm asking on the AVSIM forums is because my registration on the AIG forums still has not been approved. I continue to get this error at every step: Your OCI installation is located in a directory that will come close to the maximum path-length of 255 characters! To make sure AIM runs without issues it is suggested to move the OCI package somewhere else. Use the Move-Option in the OCI settings to relocate the package and add a junction-link in your community directory so MSFS and AIM can detect the new OCI location without issues. I cannot seem to find the Move-Option menu in settings, and I'm not sure if it's complaining about the directory I placed the installer in (B:\MSFS\AIG\AIG AI Manager) or my community folder, which I cannot change the location of (C:\Users\AAA A\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Community) Any help is greatly appreciated.

  10. After making a flight plan and loading the game (takes a lot of time) I spawn at the gate with apu and the engine running and a tow truck gives me pushback. I want to make a cold start.
  11. So I was flying for the first few times today, I for the life of me could not find a way to get the instrument panel window within my screen like they had in FSX. I would just go to the views tabs up top after pressing “alt” and there would drop down list to bring up different view panels (ex: the throttle area, the altimeter, etc.). I like to have those few panels to drag around when I want to fly from the external camera (like the tail) POV. I see that in the new flight simulator they automatically display the all the readings and altimeter, but no way to adjust them and no throttle. Is there any way to do this? Thanks
  12. Hey so I decided to do some youtube videos with the amazing PMDG aircraft, the classic 737 ngx and the newer 747 v3, just wanted to ask your opinion and how I can improve on future videos and potential content? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8T0d_ZKQ7K0wyuSaa_WMEA Thanks, Will.
  13. Hello everyone, So when I got back from work today I loaded up p3d as usual but when clicking on Select Aircraft both of my MOnitors temporarily went black, the kind of going black it does when you Install the Nvidia GeForce drivers (Mine are up to date). Then It let me select the plane altough the Box normally showing the Plane was black, so I selected and Airport and started my Flight. It was loading normally got to 100% and then just closed. I do not know why that is at all, P3D was woorkign absoloutely fine yesterday and I did not change anything since then. I have tried deleting the prepar3d.cfg which did not change anything and also changed the Add On folders name so it would create a new one also did not do anything. Do any of you have any ideas, System specs are below if needed, Intel I9-7900X Asus Prime X299 Deluxe motherboartd Asus ROG GTX 1080ti 32 GB Trident Z Ram 3200 Mhz

  15. I would like to ask you to help me. I have been trying to get x aviation for 2 months, so far not an answer. It is created every time support tickets but no one answers. The problem is with the ixeg 737 "all slots in use". X aviation has to reset it, but do not do it. Does somebody still have an idea. What I have done so far: Mail to support@x-aviation.com, order @ x-avi .... Support request on the website under the point orders which I made-> ticket created no answer Wirte to Cameron on http://forums.x-pilot.com/ Forum, no answer. Meanwhile I am blocked in the forum up to the 31.01.17. Something is completely wrong. i dont know what or why? The seller morten@ixeg.com has written me back, firstly he can do nothing, secondly he has heard I shared something illegally. Where and when and to whom, no idea. I never did. I just want to use my ixeg again! Maybe there is someone here who already had or a solution knows. Thanks you very much!
  16. TLDR: After sorting some hardware issues (new motherboard and CPU), I have lost all aircraft sounds, both internal and external. ATC sounds still work. Has a configuration file changed in some way perhaps? What should I check? I’ve read there are issues with Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs which mean it’s better to run them on Win11 (which I’ve yet to upgrade to), but this seems far too specific a problem for that. Here’s the long version, at least some of which is possibly to blame: After ordering and fitting a new motherboard - ASUS TUF Gaming Z690-Plus WiFi D4 – and CPU – Intel Core i5-12400 - (the background to why I needed to is here), I then made the mistake of changing the drive letter of my G drive (HDD) to keep my SSD drive letters concurrent. I’d forgotten that MSFS core files are there (due to originally trialling MSFS in Game Pass, but that’s another old story which I got resolved. Doubt it's relevant). Of course, I couldn’t start MSFS or the other Game Pass-installed games residing on what had been G, so I changed the letter back to G, rebooted and signed out and back in to MS Store to start them properly. All was well until I got into MSFS. The small music clip started as usual (I have music disabled) but I had no menu sounds (no big deal) and no engine or cockpit sounds (e.g. hydraulics), very big deal. Everything else appears ok and the CPU is barely taxed. I used the Repair function for MSFS in Windows settings but that didn’t solve the issue. I don’t think a Windows repair (using the Media Creation Tool method) is likely to change anything. I also don’t think it’s an issue with the new mobo’s sound as sounds appeared fine in both Forza 7 and Forza Horizon 4. I also tried the headphone port instead of the speakers and the problem was the same in MSFS, ATC sounds but no aircraft noise. I’ve looked at the sound settings in the sim and all seems as it was before. I also checked the config files of a couple of aircraft after flying them to see if there was any reference to sounds being “False” rather than “True” but I couldn’t see anything which suggested something had been disabled. I have to assume it’s a main file in the sim which has been affected, but which one and where/how?
  17. Is it possible in FSX to have the weather/failures page open in another screen or computer while the sim is in use, and use it as an instructor panel to make changes?
  18. Hello, some days ago I installed all PMDG v4 aircrafts new on my laptop. Scince this, the sim doesn't start anymore... It shows the main picture of P3D but when it tries to open the main menu, the picture is gone and there is nothing. The Task Manager tells me, the sim, SODE and courtal are running but it isn't shown in the Task Line too! I've reinstalled PMDG and AS16, I've even already reinstalled my P3D and the same problem... Under troubleshooting it shows me "Failed to connect". Please help me! Win 10 i7-5700HQ SSD128G GTX970
  19. Hey All, So I have just recently setup a successful connection for a network connection between my main PC and my secondary one (thanks to Froogle's Video). Now, I'm trying to install ASN on the secondary one and have it run on my main PC. I am not too sure on how exactly to install it. Do I just install it the default way or do I install it on my shared drive and run it off of my secondary PC? Or is there another way? Also, could I install and run 737NGX on the second computer with FS2Crew and RAAS Professional or does that have to be on the main PC? Any help would be appreciated. Let me know if I'm not being clear on the presenting the information. Thanks, jd88x89
  20. Hi Guys, I need some help. I have an AMD Six Core & since i am really not that good with computing/math i was wondering if someone knows or can check for me what the Affinity Mask Setting Should Be for an AMD Six Core because i truthfully don't know. I know some users set theirs to 14 or 86 but beyond that i have no idea. Btw i don't have hyperthreading. Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Wayne George
  21. Hello, I use P3D v3 since last november and it ran fine until today. When I start it, it loads for a while and then an error message appears: Prepar 3D stopped working. I tried everything (appart of reinstalling). Can someone help me? Wish you all a nice weekend Alex My system: i7 4790k, GTX980Ti, 16 Gb Ram (2400mhz), 250GB SSD (System), 2x 1TB HDD (Stuff), 500GB SSD (P3D only)
  22. Hello, I have been searching for a good CRJ addon for P3D, and my searching has come to no avail thus far. My first question I guess is, is there a way to get the default CRJ-700 from fsx into P3D without having fsx on your PC? I know there is a CRJ in P3D, yet it is only for AI purposes I guessed after I reviewed its .cfg files. My second question is more for aerosoft than the general public, and if you have any information it would be greatly appreciated (I've been waiting for this for 6 months now, LOL). When is/is the Aerosoft CRJ-700X ever going to get released? Also, is that aircraft even going to be compatible with P3D because the description on their website is slightly vague on the subject (when I say compatible I mean with P3D V2.X), and when I asked them directly they wouldn't answer the question saying it was still in "development" which gives me a little hope. Furthermore, I understand Aerosoft and DA have made a CRJ-700/900/1000 model, yet I haven't heard the best reviews on that aircraft, in fact I haven't heard any good reviews on the aircraft so I have chosen to not get that addon. If you have the CRJ from Aerosoft/DA and you like it; please tell me. Thank you all for considering my questions. The only reason I ask such menial questions, forgive me for doing so, is because I am relatively new to P3D, I am a rather young pilot, and the fact that I do not know personally, a single person who uses P3D. sincerely, Paul Robbins.
  23. Hi, I have decided to upgrade my flight simulation rig by making my own simple cockpit. I have everything else thought out but I have never done anything with multi-monitors on computers. I'd like to have 4 monitors for outside viewing, setup B737 style. The 5th monitor I would have as the 2D panel view for instruments. A full list of what I'd like to run: 4 outside viewing monitors/TVs 1 smaller monitor for instrument panel Saitek Yoke, Saitek rudder pedals, and Saitek throttle quadrant (1x) Saitek switch, multi, and radio panels Microsoft Flight Simulator X (FSX) I'd be building a custom frame to mount this all in. Here are my PC specs: Windows 7 Home Basic 64 Bit 8 GB RAM/Memory AMD FX 8350 Eight-Core Processor, 4.00 GHz AMD Radeon R9 270X 2GB Two 1TB hard drives (one is C:\) Let me know if I forgot something on system specs. I want to know if this PC/graphics card can run what I requested with the monitors. If so, I need to know how to set it up, because I've never done multi-monitoring before. I wanted to check if this would work and how to do it before I jumped in and bought the monitors and started the build. Thank you!
  24. Hi guys, I need your help, I want to upgrade my system, but I don't know what to do, I'm using an AMD Fx 4350 (which is really bad), but as you know this is so weak, it doesnt run FSX with a proper FPS,so I decided to upgrade, my budget isnt the best, so I wont buy an Intel core i7 4770k, I cant. I readed about intel processors are better (talking about fsx), but I've seens some videos, people using AMD Fx 8350, and FSX running good. So, my options are: 1) Intel Core i3 4150, It's obviously that I have to buy another board, and I don't know if it's gonna be problem, I dont know if I'm going to have some kind of problem with the two cores it has. 2) AMD Fx 9370, I dont have to buy another motherboard, and if FSX runs good on Fx 8350, this should be better. So guys, help me please, do not tell me things like: ''oh no buy the i5-4670k, buy the i7 4790k'' because I dont really have the money. Regards.
