Just had an incident here, but not only with FSX.
my NVidia card is a 8800GTX, and I have just upgraded the drivers. After some time when running graphics intensive applications I get a beeping from the card where previously the PC just rebooted. Much earlier drivers were all OK.
may be "teaching Grandma to suck eggs" here, but have you looked at what else is running when your performance drops. Perhaps a virus scanner as I know this affects my fps, although not to the extent of yours.
Try defragging the disk. It may be that the terrain files are...
Good suggestion. I have found that after adding in some third party stuff FSX occasionally crashes before a proper shutdown. Diagnostic software may also help with this (the MS Event viewer does not help).
Also for third party developers it may assist them in debugging...
I use the CH products and find that however well you calibrate them, the centre positions for the axes are still only general owing to the inherent vagaries of the construction.
My remedy is to disconnect when slewing.
Could use the keyboard/joystick toggle I suppose, but never...
Multiple selection through the list box
I am aware that 'rubber banding' for multiple selections is on your to-do list. Here is suggestion which may well do the same.
I was working on an airport over several sessions during which I changed the default taxiway parameters and ended up with...
I perhaps oversimplified my response. I was referring to the routing section of the Flightplan (attached is the one I looked at) which I assumed was what you wanted to alter. You do not say what you are trying to achieve though.
Obviously elements in the XML not referenced by the...
Interesting question and something I have been thinking about for use with VoxATC (experimenting). The XML file just seems a collection of waypoint elements following the informational bit, so wonder what you are trying to add.
I have a thought: I have several PLN files...
I have used AFX for a while now, but get issues when I mix it with ADE, I believe this is because AFX cannot handle some of the FSX functionality. I have not found out what in particular.
When starting to edit an airport for the first time I use AFX to accurately place runways...
you just beat me to it as I have been looking for GMAX help.
I found the attached site most informative with plenty of GMAX tutorials as well as other stuff.
The GMAX texturing video tutorial by Bill Womack is superb.
I have a Just Flight PA 38 which I am trying to get more realistic as regards flight dynamics. The major issue is the torque from the propellor. At full power the pull to the left is minimal. I have adjusted the p_torque_on_yaw parameter to 1.5 as suggested elsewhere, but the effect is...
I had a wierd problem with UT X traffic at EGCC. After doing a clean rebuild and re-installing all the traffic bgl's I noticed that EGCC held no traffic at the gates upon starting up. Monitoring the airport showed that AI aircraft subsequently landed, parked, and later...
Martin / Jon,
I uninstalled from the 'exe' in the folder; it was not in the Programs and features bit, then deleted the remaining items. A registry check showed no abnormalities.
I then reloaded 1.20, applied the 1.30 update, then allowed the automatic 1.35 update. Now where are...
Not 100% sure but I think that 1.20 was as a full download.
Where is the "Airport Design Editor Environment Test Tool"? not in my folders and only reference found is in the 1.22 patch.
I have run a registry check and ade did not appear as an issue. It may well be...
downloaded but won't install
My download went OK, but it won't install. The destination shown in the 'settings' dialogue is blank, although it identified that I had version 1.30 previously.
Congrats on the MVP, you certainly deserve it!
I totally agree that AI ATC is a must. Unless additional carrier codes and names can be introduced into an online system then we will all get frustrated with our virtual airlines and local operators.
The criticisms made above are all valid. I would prefer European procedures and...
herewith bgl for EGGP. It seems from Jim's reply that it just aint easy to sort out ILS issues (Thanks Jim :p)
I just don't bother with ILS at EGGP now, and gone back to the Piper Tomahawk weaving in through the rain!.
