    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.

    Making Sound For FSX?

    I am a beginner software developer... And basically I'm trying to make a sound pack for fsx... Now then... To have the working sounds, this would mean that the sounds were constantly playing in FSX while you were flying INSIDE the aircraft. So I basically want a constant sound inside the aircraft. Now I understand this would mean putting it into the sound folder in the flight simulator aircraft, but I am wondering how I would configure Flight Simulator to play these sounds while the aircraft is Flying and the battery is turned on. I understand that it has something to do with the .Cfg Sound file but I'm unsure what exactly I have to do to it... Could someone help? Thanks!
  4. Microsoft today released the P-40 single engine world war two fighter for Flight today. The P-40 as released does not include a cockpit. AVSIM Member Kabronicus describes the P-40; "Famous for its "shark mouth" paint jobs, the P-40 was one of the most popular Allied fighter planes in WWII. This classic aircraft's agility makes it ideal for tests of maneuverability such as collecting Aerocaches. The version in Microsoft Flight is the P-40B, with a 1000 HP in-line V-12 engine and a top speed of over 300 knots." You can read more about it in the forum topic started by Kabronicus here.
  5. Does anybody know of some sweet looking 737 airplanes that are free. Also are there any that have a lot of bells and whistles like auto landing.
  6. Hi, I have just bought a new Dell inspiron 15r (unfortunately with defaulted windows 8) and have installed FSX on it, but notice it keeps crashing whenever I start, load, save or end a flight when I've crashed the plane. I have installed the 2sp's for FSX but that hasn't fixed the problem. I have also updated win 8 to 8.1 but that still hasn't fixed the problem. I only use Just Flight 742s, 743s, 332s, 333s, 342s, 343s, and md80s and have no freeware planes taken out. All of the settings except graphics and aircraft quality are at absolute minimal! How do I fix this? (BTW I also have an unused Win 7 Dell XPS Gaming Laptop that's currently at the repair shop 'cause of some hard drive difficulty. Specs: Dell inspiron 15r Windows 8.1 8gb ram radeon graphics i7 intel proccessing chip
  7. Hello AVSIM!! I just bought FLIGHT last night and I'm loving it!So I try to start Flight today with my wired xbox controller and doesn't control the game anymore. The game recognizes it in the drop down box but when I try to map a button to it, the game doesn't respond. Its clearly not receiving commands from my controller. The controller cannot navigate the menu at all. And when flying, none of the buttons do anything except the left joystick. the left joystick is the only function that seems to have remained.I tried both my wireless and wired controller. restarting, unplugging, and run as admin but to no avail. Same thing for both. Does the same thing with 3 different wireless controllers and the one wired controller.any suggestions to get this gamepad to work again? thanks very much, and thanks AVISM for having a Microsoft flight dedicated forum!
  8. Hi everyone. Few days ago I uninstalled some addons and installed the Carenado C337 and since this moment the startup loading take 5 minutes at the autogen loading and when the game is started I have no autogen at all ! I tried with a clen fsx.cfg, logbook.bin... But nothing happens. Do you have any solution for me ? Thanks in avance guys !

    Reports of MS FLIGHT Shutdown

    Kotaku, a Game focused web site, is tonight reporting that the Microsoft Aces Studios title "Flight" has had development stopped. In the article written by Jason Schreier, the site reports that "Microsoft has informed Kotaku that they have not shut down the studio but it has ended development on flight simulator Microsoft Flight and Project Columbia, a Kinect interactive TV project ." In an unattributed quote, Kotaku reports; "Microsoft Studios is always evaluating its portfolio of products to determine what is best for gamers, families and the company, and this decision was the result of the natural ebb and flow of our portfolio management. Many factors were considered in the difficult decision to stop development on "Microsoft Flight" and "Project Columbia," but we feel it will help us better align with our long-term goals and development plans. For "Microsoft Flight," we will continue to support the community that has embraced the title and the game will still be available to download for free at" You can read the entire artilce here: Note that AVSIM has requested confirmation of this news directly from Microsoft. We will update this article to reflect any communication we receive. You can join the forum conversation here.
  10. Hey guys! Well.... i've just about had it with MFSX . When I built a new computer mostly for FSX I installed windows 8 on it (I know.... bad move), and sure enough i was getting all kinds of joystick problems, so yes i tried FSUIPC registered, disabling this and that blah blah blah.. And recently i took part in the cross the pond westbound just yesterday, and right when i got my oceanic clearence... BAM! Fatal error! So i was sick of it and uninstalled windows 8 and installed windows 7. I just got FSX up and running, Installed FSUIPC, REX and applied all the tweaks, and now when i try to run.... "Flight simulator was unable to load some program files and will now exit. Pleae reinstall FS....". That was the final strike. I checked for fixes and there are none and even if there are i dont really want to go back to it, i want to try something new. So prepar3d, which has support, developers, communities ect. However I have some questions about it before i buy. Most addon software now give the option for prepar3d which is great, however do PMDG aaircraft work fine? I know you can make them work but is it a hassle? I really enjoy playing on VATSIM so i was wondering if squawkbox works fine. Also, do you get random errors in game like in FSX? Are there a bunch of tweaks to add to the config file? Do you recomend i make the change? If you want my specs just for info there on my profile, and a list of addons i use(ed) in FSX: (in case you want to tell me something on compatibility). PMDG aircraft, looking to get the 777 Catpain sim 777 aerosoft airports and scenery REX ( I know they have prepar3d support) FSUIPC(Not sure if you use it in P3D?) SweetFX P.S. Did any of you use the "FSX to prepar3d migration tool" on the simmarket? Thanks a lot and hope to hear back from you soon!

    Follow Up with Joshua Howard

    Joshua Howard was kind enough to provide answers to AVSIM's follow-up questions following the announced stopping of development on Flight. Here is a "mini-review" of sorts. AVSIM: We have a number of questions we would love to ask, but the predominant one is regarding external development. Are you considering allowing third parties continuing development of FLIGHT? Would you provide the SDK's under license to another or others? Joshua: There is no facility to allow 3rd parties to independently develop content for Microsoft Flight. Though we had hoped to offer this capability in the future, as the product stands today it’s not possible. AVSIM: Do you foresee then a point in time in the not too distant future, where the work on Flight could form the basis of FSX11? Or, is there some other possible road that MS ACES might move down to continue the genre’? Joshua: Those are difficult questions, because on one hand I can’t discuss unannounced product, and on the other hand the company never wants to say never. It should be clear that there is no current effort to continue with a Flight type product. The team itself is dispersing into other projects. But, who knows what the future might bring? I wouldn’t want anyone to hold out any false hopes, but it also wouldn’t surprise me if after some period of time the company reconsidered. We are constantly evaluating our portfolio and making changes – right now Flight doesn’t fit, but it might again in the future. It’s an unsatisfactory answer, but it’s the best I’ve got for you. AVSIM: Thank you Joshua. We do appreciate your candor with us.
  17. Dear AVSIM Flight Community, It has been a while since I last posted here on AVSIM, but I thought that it would be important to inform the Flight community here about my upcoming flight events. I am a member of the community, and I have a group flight event every Friday from 7:00 PM EST (UTC -5:00) to 9:00 PM EST (UTC -5:00). Starting tonight my flights are going to be strictly in Microsoft Flight until the multiplayer capabilities of the game are shutdown. The flight plans are going to take us to all of those iconic Flight locations. We are going to relive Microsoft Flight one last time, and I want Microsoft to be able to notice the sudden spike in server traffic. I want to fill sessions(emphasis on plural) with these flights. We are still here, and we still love flying in Microsoft Flight. I hope to see EVERYONE participating in these events. This isn't about trying to save the game, this is about unifying the Flight community and celebrating all of the amazing times that we have had flying with each other in Microsoft Flight. So let's keep Flight alive! Sincerely, DeathseekerDXC FOR MORE INFORMATION: CLICK HERE Information regarding these flights will be posted on in the events section. Look for upcoming events with the name "Wonders of the World" or "FIGHT for FLIGHT!" If there is not going to be a flight you will see "FLIGHT POSTPONED" in the normal time slot. Volunteering to host and orchestrate overflow sessions will be greatly appreciated!
  18. This addon inserts two new weather themes in Microsoft Flight: Light Snow It has been snowing all day, but flying should be safe as long as you stay out of the clouds. Heavy Snow A heavy snowstorm makes flying at low altitudes a real challenge. Don't forget to set your altimeter to 28.99 inHg.

    Joshua Howard Regarding MS Flight

    In response to an AVSIM inquiry regarding the status of FLIGHT after last night's reporting by various gamer sites, Joshua Howard, Team Lead at the Game Studios provided AVSIM a statement which does confirm that development of the FLIGHT product has ceased. Here it is in part; "It’s important to be precise about what actually happened. Microsoft decided to end active development of Microsoft Flight, but the product itself will continue to stay live and continue to be actively managed as a community. New users can still download it, and existing users can still play it, with full access to whatever content they have purchased. It’s always a difficult decision to end active development like this, especially with such a dedicated and committed team. But ultimately this was the right decision for Microsoft.". We hope to be asking Mr. Howard some follow-on questions, which we know the community is anxious to hear the answers to. We'll report on those shortly.
  21. FOR THE LOVE OF FLYING! We enjoy the realistic concept of flying an airplane from a destination to a favorite destination. We all enjoy the moments of pretending our flights contain real people and many lives are within the palms of our hands. Oh, the occasional moments where we've encountered situations that caused us to go #####!, I cannot forget the moments that caused me to do emergency landings at nearby airports! But, as Microsoft Flight Simulator endure upon highway 2014, 2015 brings in a clean slate for ...... What is next? ! I am pretty sure it's been asked before, but..... there are no solid answers. So, community of flyers and FSX Fanatics, its being asked once again. What is next? Microsoft Flight Simulator (the company) is no longer with Microsoft. From what I can understand, due to a lack of funding and for the love of laying off thousands of employees, Flight Simulator crew of developers received the boot. Unfortunately, for us FSX fanatics, we have to literally ask ourselves .... what do we do now? With the transition of technology that Microsoft and other tech companies have to withstand (Apple), what is next for the FSX? Who is the next big company that we should all keep an eye opened up for? Which is the next real life (exact duplication of real life flying OR even better) FSX company? I would love to hear your opinions! Let's get it started yall ! BTW! BY THE WAY ..... I am pretty aware that there was a previous post about "what is next for FSX." Based on the Google search, I think it was a decade ago? WELL ..... It's 2014 .... we are just a couple of months away from entering into another year. Why not .... give the needle a spin? CHAO!
  22. Dear Flight Community, I have recently created a couple of repaints that I feel the online community will really love. I have mastered the ability to make aircraft appear metallic. I have also created a Flight camouflage that will completely hide your plane in the game. So, please check them out and tell me what you think. Thanks and enjoy. Sincerely, DXC
