  2. Hello aviators, my name is Matthew Smith and I am the vice CEO of our new project, FSAware. We will be launching our website at the end of this year and will be using smartcars 2. We are basically a club where you can fly IFR or VFR. You can choose any airline and any route, so no more deciding on which VA to fly for. Hours will be logged and added up for all flights you do. We fly a wide range of aircraft and nearly every airline. You can fly anywhere at any time. If you have any questions or route suggestions or any suggestions for the club, either email me at flightsimulationclub@gmail.com or come visit our teamspeak, 2799820.ts3.mpgs.co or reply to this post and we will get back to you ASAP. We'd love to hear your thoughts! Kind regards, Matthew Smith, Vice CEO
  3. I am suddenly seeing some debug data in the side menu of ChasePlane. I've never seen this before and I'd swear it wasn't there before either. Any way to turn this off? Thanks! http://imgur.com/ulADIqk
  4. Hello all, I just recently got a new computer with Windows 10. The graphics and the sim are running great, but there is one problem. I have tried running a 15 hour flight, and will fly for an hour, and then set the autopilot. Because of the flight being so long, I turn off the monitor of my desktop, and then let the sim run for eight hours when I go to bed, before waking up and checking the flight and then landing it when it is time. I have tried this flight 4 times, and each time I have woken up, checked the flight sim and found the computer’s home screen on the screen. I can still click on the FSX icon, and it brings me to the flight, but it will be paused for multiple hours. This only started once I got a new computer a few weeks ago with WIndows 10. I used to have a computer with Windows 7, and this did not happen. Does anyone know what I can do to fix FSX from going to the home screen mid-flight? Thanks for any help!
  5. Hi avsim community again. I have the PMDG 737 NGX and the Qualitywings 757. I would like to know how to preform an ILS for each. What do I press, what should I put in the radios, when will I press vor/loc or app button's, and how do I preform it. I looked on youtube videos and I didn't help me. I would like some help. Thanks!
  6. I have a question about a freeware aircraft I downloaded from the AVSIM library, but I'm not sure where to post it. I notice a lot of freeware support forums, but they seem to be for specific types or brands of freeware, and my question comes more under "Miscellaneous Freeware" or "Other Freeware", for which there does not appear to be a forum. Essentially, I downloaded the Boeing 717-200 by David Robles, and can't get the SFX panel to work. The switches are operational, but no sound plays, and when I mouse over them, I get "File Not Found", even though I do have the required sound files and have installed them in the main "Sound" folder. So where specifically can I ask about this, please? Many thanks in advance for your help.
  7. Is this thing a fraudulent scam or what? I have not seen it mentioned on avsim anywhere. From what I've read and seen it looks shady.. Your thoughts? http://www.virtualpilot3d.com/
  8. Hello everyone. I have some questions for you. It is about hardware for FSX. So, let's start. My CPU is an i7 4790k, right now at 4.1GHz with a CM Hyper 212EVO. My video card is a GTX 970 by Asus Strix. And I have 16GB of RAM. The question: which is the best CPU cooler to overclock the i7 4790k at 4.6GHz ? I saw that it is the best option and I really need it because I am loaded with addons like REX4 and many sceneries. Btw, my case is a Cooler Master N500 which can fit a cooler with up to 162mm height. I have read good things about the Noctua NH-D14. Is it ok for 4.6Ghz? I can afford it and my case supports it. Thank you
  9. hey guys is it possible to use the models that i use for IVAO offline? i tried setting traffic to 25% commercial and 25% GA and it was just learjets and piper 180s
  10. Hi to everyone, Let me introduce myself, I’m a 58 year old male who as a former U.S. Army UH-1H/V Huey helicopter pilot, flew as pilot in command for the 1st Squadron 4th Cavalry D Troop Air and 82nd Medical Detachment both out of Ft. Riley, Kansas. Years ago I remember flying my first flight sim on my IBM Intel 8088 computer. (That was way back) Also enjoyed FS 2002 flying the 737, Lear 45 and of course helicopters. Have been out of the flight sim world for sometime and now it’s time to get back into flying. I know much has changed over the years and I’m looking forward to enjoying what the new technology can give in the flight simulator experience. Would I like to have a Jetmax cockpit, sure, who wouldn’t! Just don’t want to fly only one aircraft, I enjoy flying a little of everything. Seems like you spend many thousands of dollars and fly one aircraft or “build” a generic one yourself, (lots of plywood, time, tools and space I don’t have). I would like to see Jetmax produce a touch screen generic main instrument panel using one of their setups they now have, and be able to fly any aircraft. Just a dream of mine. Hear are my plans for my build. Please, anyone who reads this and has a comment or suggestion please feel free to give it, that’s why I am here to do this right the first time. My mission is to have a generic setup. Phase One: Will be three out the window TV’s, one computer and of course a yoke, pedals and throttle. I do have a 24” monitor not being used now and would like to use it as the 4th instrument’s monitor. I’m thinking my hardware will allow me to run the 4th monitor, if not I will fly a virtual cockpit, for now. Phase Two: A second computer for one or two instrument monitors and a third monitor for different views of the aircraft on the ground or in flight for situational awareness, or approach plates, etc. etc. etc. Also will pick up a helicopter control system, such as Cadet, Komodo or MaxFlightStick. Flying helicopters with joysticks just doesn’t do it for me. And I want to do this just once! I do not want to buy something and find out it doesn’t work with something else. I will have the computer custom built by a shop and will do the installs according to Nick’s bible. This computer will be for FSX and nothing else. Remember everything on this build is subject to change, so please give me your opinions. COMPUTER: Case: Corsair Obsidian Series 750D Airflow Edition. (Will increase fans and install a fan control) Motherboard: ASUS Maximus VII Hero Socket LGA 1150 (need recommendations! Do not want a bottlenecked motherboard) CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K (will be overclocked) CPU Cooling: Corsair H110 Liquid Cooling Video Game Card: ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Overclocked 4 GB GDDR5 RAM Memory: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/2400MHz Dual Memory with a timing specification of 9-11-11-31 (may be hard to find) Power Supply: Corsair HXI Series 850W Fully Modular ATX Platinum Certified SSD: 120GB Intel 530 Series SATA 6.0GB/s 2.5” (OS only) SSD: 120GB Intel 530 Series SATA 6.0GB/s 2.5” (FSX only) SSD: 120GB Intel 530 Series SATA 6.0GB/s 2.5” (FSX add on files) May need to be larger? (256GB)? Optical Disc Drive: 24x SATA Internal DVD Drive Illuminated Keyboard Mouse or Track Ball Speakers SOFTWARE: OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit Edition) Simulator: FSX something? Help! Too many versions! DX9? From what I’m reading DX10 is not worth the troubles. Orbx, for realism at airports and flying helicopters close to the ground. I was considering 32” to 40” TV’s for out the window. Really need to know what refresh rate (60 or 120) and what resolution to go with (1920x1200)? What works best for a three TV setup? Also would like to know what table’s or desks work the best for my setup, I’m not going to build anything, don’t have the space for that. It’s been a long time since I’ve done any simming, so if I seem somewhat naive on the subject, it’s because so much has changed. I am open to all suggestions and comments. Want to thank everyone who helps me get this built going.
  11. Hi. Just joined, looked at the FAQ but did not find the answer. Will these downloads play on just a PC or can they be played on a PlayStation console to? I was told that the Kolb Firefly flight simulator that I am interested in can be played if it is added to Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 and played through a PC. Is that the only way to play it? Any info. or suggestions appreciated, thanks, Mike
  12. I'm posting here rather than Avsim.su because the registration process seems bugged for the forums there. This is my issue: I can't download from avsim.su. When I click download, it just reloads the page. I click download again and the same thing happens over and over again. Files on avsim.su can't be found elsewhere when I look, and they look like really good planes. I was wondering if anyone here knows what the problem is.
