    FSXA Issue with FX between tool and flight

    I am having problems getting an effect to appear correctly when triggered from the cockpit in flight, however when I use the Special Effects Tool from the Tools menu, the effect displays just fine. There are four emitters in the file and two of them display OK (0, 3) but emittiers 1 & 2 do...

    Whisplacer glitch

    This is for FSX. Forgot to add that in the Subject entry. I'm using Whisplacer to place weather turbulence in various locations to add a "rough ride" for aircraft transiting the areas of FLAK in a package that I will be making available soon. The process is going along fairly well but there...

    FSXA Sensing sounds or effects

    This query could probably "fit" into a number of sub-forums since it relates to sound, effects and gauges but I thought this would be the "best fit". Is there a way in FSX to determine when a "wav" file is being played or an effect "fx" file is active? An explanation of my desired use...

    XML - variable problem

    This is FSX but I'm using the simpler FS9 XML. I've been tearing out what little hair I have left trying to understand why something that SEEMS so simple does not work. I am trying to construct code that will be dependent upon several conditions and am adding them and testing as I go along...

    Mesh annomalies questions

    I've downloaded the FSX 10M USGS mesh for the USA east coast that was recently posted at Simviation by Wayne Evans. Doing a test hop from KROC to KPSM I noticed some 'spikes' enroute and at my destination. The spikes are those that I've seen when the altitude for a given point/area is...

    VC gauges disappear moving eyepoint...

    In the process of attempting to return to flying a Connie in FSX, I have been looking for one with a decent VC. I used to fly the FSDZigns L-049A until FSX made this an 'unrealistic experience' with the neutering of the 2D cockpit views, etc. In any case, I just discovered a C-121A download at...

    Invisable AI at modified airport...

    I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to seek help on this perplexing issue but since I'm using ADE to "reactivate" this former military airport I thought I'd at least start here. I've taken the stock LHTL ( Tokol ) airport that is located just south of Budapest Ferihegy and...

    "Add Vertex"...am I missing something?

    I'm currently using V1.05 and during the process of upgrading several stock FSX airports to add parking, etc I have often seen the "Add Vertex" help popup when hovering my cursor over a "selected" apron edge or boundry fence, however, I have not seen any way to actually ADD a vertex. I can...

    Question about folder requirements

    here is a copy of a post I just added over at Avsim under the heading "Empty texture folders...yea or nay?" I thought I might ask in these parts as well to see if there is a concensus on this. " I'm currently building up some of the barren FSX default airports that lack parking and/or...

    Position retention when "unlocking"...

    Would it be posible to have ADE retain the "current position" in the view window when you transition from a locked to FSX state to an unloacked state? Currently the view snaps immediately back to the airport reference point and one muct then zoom out and find the place you were at, click...

    Properties box truncated....

    Hi Jon, I noticed this problem on my system with Ver 1.0 but didn't mention it, hoping the next update would address it. Alas, I still have a "truncated" Properties dialog box. The bottom of the rectangle where there are apparently 2 buttons is cut off. I see a small sliver of what...

    Build 2624 Airport List Turning Up Empty

    Airport scan turning up empty... I've installed the latest update , engine_091_2628.zip, and pointed SDE to my FSX main folder. When I hit the "Scan" button, it whirs for about 5 seconds then displays "---Airports List". No drop down, no entries. I've exited and restarted, as mentioned in a...
