  1. Though I'd post here as they seem to read this forum more than their own forum! I wont be buying this until it is available on STEAM. I have used Steam for many many years, since the start CS 1.6 FTW! I am not going to buy another version in the hope that you can add it to Steam at a later date. Often it never works out. So there you have it Microsoft, you wont get a penny out of me until I can order it on Steam. Oh, one caveat: I won't buy also if there is no Track IR support. Currently there is not, one month from release!!!!! 😱😱😱 Thank you very much 💪
  2. Greetings from Colombia, new user here. I have recently bought the Steam Edition Carenado C90b, and overall I think it is a good model but I've had a couple of issues that are bothering me. When I climb to a cruise altitude, or during the cruise climb, my EFIS screen will shut down (It shows as if I've just started the EFIS) and all the lights in my announciator panel will illuminate. This happens every time I climb into a cruise altittude, for example: 15000 ft. The other problem, is that the GEN TIES wont close. doesnt matter how hard I trie, but the switch wont go into the CLOSED position. Any Ideas?
  3. Hi, I'm releasing a cross-platform multiplayer client for joining FSX (boxed), FSX:SE and Prepar3D (possibly X-Plane at some point). Available here, http://pmem.uk/joinfs. Here's a list of current features: Pilots can join with different simulator versions FSX (Boxed), FSX:Steam, Prepar3D. (Possibly X-Plane in future). Record aircraft and play back recordings live to other pilots in a network. Overdub new aircraft onto a recording. Animations are transmitted over the network; landing gear, elevator, ailerons, rudder, propeller, canopy, lights and smoke. Pilots can be present on virtual ATC networks at the same time as JoinFS. This means that all aircraft in the JoinFS network will be shown using smooth low-latency movement. It's free to use (donation-ware). Thanks, Peter
  4. I'm looking to buy the beautiful Reality XP GNS 530W XP/GNS WAAS for FSX, however I'm flying FSX Steam Edition. Will this product work in FSX Steam Edition (FSX-SE)? I searched through the knowledge base but no joy. Thanks!
  5. Hey FS junkies, I recently got back into FSX but I was using the older box edition and so this weekend I decided to get FSX steam during the sale. So far so good - been doing GA flying with a2a planes mostly and plan to fly slighly faster planes like the caravan and piston twins. Just wanted to know how your experiences has been with it so far and what kind of aircrafts/flights have you been flying and going on.
  6. I recently acquired the latest mission pack from STEAM, "Arctic Rescue" (20 missions). When looking at them I found that the flight (.FLT) files were "compiled/coded" and totally unreadable. This is something I've never seen before. However, if you run a mission and save it, the resulting flight file is normal! Has anyone seen this kind of flight file before? Cheers, eskil
  7. I have relocated this post to the "HARDWARE CONTROLLERS, JOYSTICKS, ...." forum. (I don't know how to delete this original post) Sorry for the confusion. I have a "Desktop Aviator model 2450B" gps unit (with the vga screen) that I'm contemplating including in a new cockpit build. I haven't installed the unit before, and have a few questions, should anyone here be familiar with these units: (1) Sim compatibility: I understand they are compatible with FSX. I would like to know if they work with FSX Steam and/or Prepar3d? (2) Reliability: Before I make up a place for it in the cockpit, I'd like to know whether these units reliably install and operate? I ask because I see the manufacturer no longer offers these units. Any advice is appreciated, Many thanks, Brian Vancouver, BC
  8. I just got FSX steam edition, can anyone advise which photorealistic scenery scenery packs are compatible with FSX Steam edition. Is there a world scenery pack available from somewhere rather than having to download various regions IF not which European scenery is the most realistic Thanks in advance
  9. Hello Pilots & Carenado Experts! I own amongst to other aircrafts, the fabulous Carenado F406 Caravan II. It is a very fine aircraft and my favorite plane. Furthermore, I bought the Flight1 GTN 750 and have it successful integrated (F1GTN750F406II.exe) into the F406. Everything is working fine, SimStarter NG, ASN, the F406 including the GTN 750 and all my fantastic sceneries and tools but ... ... the included Weather Radar of the F406 does not work! I can press every button, turn the controller, especially to the ON Position, but the display remains blank. The device is definitely without function! There is nothing that I have changed to the plane, except the GTN 750 integration. By the way, I only fly with my Oculus Rift DK2, so I use only the VC and no 2D gauges! Now to my Questions: 1. Is there really a full weather Radar integrated or is it only compatible and I have to/must buy this WR tool? 2. Is there someone else with this problem? 3. Is there a solution to get the device run? I use for example the following Addons/Specs: Windows 10 Pro 64Bit AMD FX8370 MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GD5T OC (newest driver) 16 GByte RAM FSX Steam Edition (everything on a 500GB SSD) Carenado F406 Caravan II Active Sky Next (via Steam) Flight1 GTN 750 SimStarterNG FlyInside (for my Oculus Rift DK2) ..and much more I dont use DirectX 10, only DirectX9 settings (because the Rift DK2). I have a zipped File with some INI´s and CFG´s but I dont know, how I could upload it inside this thread? I hope someone can/would help me! Best wishes from EDHK, Marco P.S.: Sorry for my bad english but school is over since a lot of years!
  10. Hi, everyone, FSX:MS=original MS version of FSX FSX:SE=Steam version of FSX I want to report that I succeeded in installing the Level-D 767 in FSX:SE. I have a dual FSX:MS & FSX:SE setup. I started the install file, and pointed it to the correct FSX:SE folder. After install, I needed to copy the entry for the Level-D from the original FSX:MS DLL.XML file (in C:\Users\[Your Name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX) to the FSX:SE DLL.XML file in ...\FSX-SE . You might want to back up your DLL.XML file in FSX:SE just to be on the safe side. I did a loop around SFO and an autoland at R28R w/ no real issues except that I had to tell FSX to turn on my joystick. Very smooth but no addon scenery yet and only default AI traffic at this point. Mike
  11. Hi guys, I searched in the forum but didn't found recent posts on this argument; so I decided to open a new thread about the very essential changes you should make, in your opinion, in FSX.CFG I run FSX:SE DX10 (Steave FX) on a not up-to-date machine so, out of the box, with MD11, NGX and DASH8 and ASN (on client pc) I got about 18-21 fps on ground with 70% of AI traffic But I'm curios about: 1) do you use HT? 2) AffinityMask 3) FFTF 4) other? Thanks a lot, Ric

    Trading Cards?

    Okay, I've had Steam for years and was surprised to note when I just checked that I have 82 games/sims on it in my library. Now, apparently these grant 'Trading Cards' whatever those are, of which I evidently have about 90, granted from various titles in my Steam library. Four of those are from Flight Sim World, which I think were granted because I've done some of the missions in the sim. These trading cards are apparently worth '22 Gems' each (whatever that means), the Gems can also be converted into 'Booster Packs' (again, no idea). So does anyone know what that all means?
  13. Hello, I have a bit of an issue with my FSX:SE and I hope someone can help me with it. So basically I'm trying to override FSX:SE Filtering and Anti-Aliasing settings using nVidia Inspector as described here http://www.avsim.com/topic/324786-nvidia-configuration-guide-inspector-2xxxx-drivers-version-20-explanations-of-all-settings/ However I'm not sure if the settings are being applied correctly or not. The reasons why I think the settings are being applied is because when I set the frame limiter to 30.5 it works. But when I set the Anisotropic filtering using nVidia Inspector and turn it off in FSX there is no filtering happening. Here is a picture of my nVidia Inspector settings and here is my FSX settings and here is a picture from inside FSX It is clear than no kind of filtering was done, and to my understanding that FSX settings should be overwritten. Hope some knows the solution to this. Thanks in advance.
  14. Hello everyone, I've recently purchased DX10 Fixer by Steve and use the latest version (V3.0), Its been 13 days I've been Struggling for the best settingns for my PC. The only problem that I'm not aware , is it an common issue or there is a issue with my settings?, the flickering. Like when I taxi to the runway, nearby taxi ways are bright and crisp but the runway end seems like flickering. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. If someone could suggest me the best settings for NI & DX10 Fixer. It'd really help me out. Currently I use FSX STEAM EDITION, and 8xS with 4xSGSS with 1/2 refresh rate set in Nvidia. I'm happy if I get 30 fps, and good AA. Is there any best settings which I could use to avoid the runway end flicker and get steady fps? Specs: (Alienware 14 - 2014) i7 4700HQ Nvidia GT 750M 2GB 8GB RAM Thanks in Advance. ~ Dharan.
  15. Anyone recommend a good freeware or payware Baron Beechcraft for FSX Steam Edition?
  16. I have the DCS helicopters and they are awesome , however Im looking for some for FSX Steam edition Which freeware and payware have the most realistic helicopter flight models?
  17. Hi everyone I was hoping you could help me solve a weird problem that my FSX has developed.. The weird problem that i'm talking about is that I can no longer hear any engine sound in any aircraft other than the FSLabs Concorde As far as I can remember this problem only just appeared today.. I've been tracing my steps to remember if I've had any sound issues before and all I can think of is the fact that I downloaded the freeware Eurocopter AS332L2. I loaded this helicopter and did the usual routine of allowing certain software to run as a trusted programme. This is the last time I heard engine noise. I thought it would make sense therefore to remove this particular addon completely by deleting all files that came with it. I then found the FSX.cfg and removed the "trusted programmes" that came with the Eurocopter. Alas I restarted FSX and there was still no engine sound in any freeware, payware or default aircraft. I've done several restarts of the computer and still nothing. I should make clear that I can hear all other sounds in FSX apart from engine sound. AP disconnect, landing gear noises, touchdown and rain etc. are all fine, only engine noise. I just find it odd that FSLabs Concorde works fine though? :/ I can't be sure that it's not something caused by Concorde since I did do a flight in it earlier just before the issues started but I think it's unlikely since its never caused any issue in the past.. I'd really appreciate any pointers to help fix this issue, has anyone experienced anything similar? thanks, Cameron.
  18. Hello, yesterday i got Active Sky 2016 and flew around for a bit. I saw something strange as i fly into clouds. Some of the cloud textures start to make its way into the cockpit (as seen in photo). If there is no fix thats alright because im updating to P3d V4 tomorrow. , HR PHOTO: https://prnt.sc/fdktar

  20. I'm thinking about picking up the QW757. I have heard that some people have had problems with installing it in FSX Steam. I understand Quality Wings doesn't support FSX:SE, but I have seen some people having it working and some that have ran into problems. What is your experience with the product and this specific sim and what is needed to get it to work?
  21. Hi Eventually found the configurator in the steam tools library but it says I don't have fs2crew installed despite the fact I do. Any thoughts?
  22. I have fsx for steam and REX. Currently I startup rex first and generate the textures by selecting I just want to fly from the menu, I know this takes a while especially with water textures, however do I have to do this each time? Many Thanks
  23. Hi, I had FSX installed onto my HDD, but as I was purchasing the NGX I decided to move the file over to my SSD. I didn't do this completley conventionally using Steam Mover. This worked and everything is going well!. However I now wish to install every steam related application to a 250GB SSD I have just purchased. As steam mover uses links to allow the game, I'd like some advice as to how to approach this. Do I need to revert the step by using the back arrow so the game is now completley on my HDD first? How will this affect the NGX? I am concerned that I'll do this and then lose my NGX (which I absoloutley love!) and thus the money I spent on it. I'd like some form of reassurance that if this happens I will be able to get my NGX back and reinstalled? My set up: SSD1: OS, Steam.exe, Steamapps, FSX, HDD: Steamlibrary, FSX Shortcut + 10 games. SSD2: I would like everything other than the OS on this SSD including FSX:SE and NGX. I hope you can shed some light on this. Kind Regards George Hunt
  24. While the FSX: Steam preview is loading I now get an error that ASconnect is not compatible with my fsx steam version. However it worked before I installed REX Essentials+Overdrive and REX Texture Direct with Soft Clouds. I tryed reintalling simconnect, asconnect, active sky next and I'm stumped
  25. Hello everyone. I am going to order parts to build a pc in the coming weeks and would like some advice. I will provide a link to pc part picker below to show you the parts i have already picked out. My budget is 700-900 dollars and I want to build a pc that can run p3d v3-4 im not sure which one. The add ons I will use are gsx, aerosoft airbus, and ftx global, and a few sceneries. Would my specs be compatible and provide enough power or should I change them. Thank you for anyone who responds. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/qt8VVY
