  1. Thanks Sascha for the info on this problem. Will try to do as you advice and see what happens when I will have more time to go for a very long flight.
  2. Personally I feel that most of the stuff that makes flight simming more real is the hardware to it like TrackIR and such. And there are a lot of add-ons like the Flight Sim commander who makes it even more real, but where you need to have more than one screen because otherwise flying becomes still very hard. So in this regard would it be great to have a flight sim that could like the FSX map have chart maps available to pop-up when in the cockpit just as you can maximise the FSX map feature, and the place of your aircraft marked in it. This would be a great help not only for just flight simming, but as well educational. This way you can keep your eyes also focused to where you are flying. In FSX you are nothing with such maps in the default scenery as you mostly don't really know where you really are vis-à-vis a landmark place. So a sim should already if possible be sold with VFR scenery in place or seperately sold together for different regions and/or better that the FSX VFR scenery add-ons would be made compatible with the new sim whereas the customer can choose between an updated version or not. Remember that many flight simmers already have invested an enormous amount of money on the FSX sim. Many will thus not take the step once again, and the more so in these economic troubled times!!! I can fairly state that the montly income of most simmers is about 2000 Euro I assume. And with that they need to feed also the family, buy stuff for their kids and wife/husband as well as birthdays and christmas gifts and such, or even a new car. So I feel that it is best to take that in mind with a new sim in terms of full compatibility of at least the FSX scenery add-ons that are the most expensive ones. I think that it should count also for the aircrafts, but based on what I read from Matthijs do they seem to create more to the art and more real aircrafts visionally outside and inside, especially the cockpit. Then again based on what I read seem all indications to go to a sim that makes flying the aircraft most important, meaning that you in real life as a pilot can't start hoovering somewhere outside above or around your aircraft. I don't know if many simmers would like that witnessing all the pics that people often do take during their flight. And with regard to the weather do we have superb FSX features like REX for instance.
  3. Hi, I have a similar problem, but have for the moment no other sceneries than those of Aerosoft installed like VFR Germany West and Nord as well as Megascenery Hawaii X. I also installed lately German airfields 1,2 and 3 as well as German Airports 2X together with Airports of Mexico City & Central X. Beside all this is also Austria X installed and UTX Europe & Canada as well as GEX USA/Canada/Alaska and FS Altitude Western Europe. When I wanted to do some flying in the Inselhüpfen area starting at Sylt, I constantly ran into an FSX freeze with the settings advised in the manual. I had also installed TrackIR 5 and seem to wrongly have thought that it was the cause of the problem. But after uninstalling it and go for a flight in FSX starting always in Sylt, then FSX frooze too and thus TrackIR couldn't be the problem. So did a few changes in the Library settings and unchecked also FS altitude, but to no avail. Yes, it went better in a first flight test after the Library settings change. Instead of flying just for about 10 to 15 minutes, I was able to fly from Sylt almost to Bremen Harbor till FSX said no more. I dunno know if this is due to that I had passed perhaps the problems in the scenery whereas I the other time flew right over it. What I do notice however is that the fps jumps like crazy between 10 to even a maximum of 80 sometimes in. And it even over just water scenery can drop sometimes to below 10 fps with the camera view pointed top-down to the water. How strange can that be because such a view creates normally one of the biggest and stable fps hits you can get in FSX? Another guess is to uninstall VFR Germany Nord, as I hadn't had none of these problems with VFR Germany West installed when it was installed together with Austria X, UTX, GEX, Hawaii X. I don't know if it will help. My idea is that if I let the scenery of the German Airfields as well as German Airports 2 X installed and reinstall VFR Germany Nord that it maybe could solve the problem due to the automatic updating vis-à-vis the airfields installed already within the region. But it's just a wild guess and if it doesn't, then I will be at a total loss in how to solve this issue here, as it's for the moment my last hope. So I would be very glad if someone has encountered the same situation without the Dan scenery present on his/her system and found a way to solve it. Thanks. P.S. I also have Traffic X installed.
  4. Thanks Shaun, I must really have been completely asleep when downloading what I bought that day.
  5. Thanks for the additional info Shaun and Finn!! Will later on give it a test for sure. Bernadette
  6. Hi Finn, I suppose that you have to put bufferpools and Jobscheduler yourself into the FSX.cfg file because I have neither one of them in that file. And if so, then where it is best placed in the FSX.cfg file? Mine is a Dell Dimension 9200 quad core PC with the nvidia 880 GTX single 768 Mb graphics card. Thanks for the help in this as well if it would ameliorate things even more hopefully. Bernadette
  7. Well, decided to give it a quicker test and it was most promising, as I could leave my Global texture setting to the max with the same aircraft I before was even unable to take off from Frisco international airport. Now I notice an fps that even went to a 20, but occasional drops below 10 to mostly just 10 or a bit above. So changing the boot.ini file clearly helped a lot with this scenery and I suppose it to be the same for Manhatten X when I will test that one out, or probably other scenery already installed for quite some time in improving them as well. So couldn't resist to show some pics of the test. Had a bit more if the fraps key would have kept working that is. This is a city view in FSX completely to my liking. Perfect order and no chaos, then perfectly placed buildings. So keep it coming Aerosoft. Keep up the good work!!
  8. Hi Shaun, Thanks for the info Shaun! Found the Boot.ini now and changed it, but don't have a bufferpool's section in my FSX.cfg file. Will see another day what the change only in the Boot.ini will do. Hoping on the best.
  9. Hi Shaun, Thanks for trying to help me in solving this problem. This is a partial copy of an email notification of my order that shows that I in any case have downloaded the correct file I hope. 1 x Mega Airport Frankfurt X (10730) = 24.95EUR Version Download Below the file I downloaded from the link in the email that took me right to my account: AS_MEGAAIRPORTFRANKFURTX_FS2004.zip I unzipped the file and beget in a folder only this to click on: AS_EDDF2008_V100 for the installer to start. Once it does I beget an opening photoscreen that says and seem to indicate it to be the FS9 version instead of the FSX one. When I go further after a succesful registration, then I choose the FSX destination folder, but I beget a question when clicking on next: Did you select the FSX folder. But I did and so I suppose to be having the right installer for FSX based on this. In the zipped download that I unzipped was only one installer that gave no choice option between FS9 nor FSX. Hope you can help me out on this. Bernadette
  10. I don't know about Las Vegas, but there is already a Megascenery Las Vegas X available, and one that is also distributed by Aerosoft as well if I am not mistaken. Orbx is also starting to make a lot of progress with work on the north American continent the same was as what they've done with Australia. So I think that it would be great based on their experience in releasing additional especially australian airport sceneries that Aerosoft gradually goes from one interesting US city to the next one. When you combine that with the Rex weather engine software that is much more than just about weather and clouds, then you will have over time together with an up-to-date PC one heck of a flightsim, one that won't need another next FS, as I certainly don't know what more you can have than the very high amount of reality already available. Just more very good add-ons will certainly be more than enough, and it will give every developer of state of the art FSX add-ons and especially the end-user the opportunity to almost cover the entire globe over the years to come and eventually with even better PC's. I only hope that they keep the add-ons in stock as long as it takes because it then would become a hobby of years like the ancient old train model hobby with Marklin as the most known of it. It would be sad if we wouldn't be able to buy a certain scenery anymore just because it has been made years ago while there isn't a next FS than still just FSX. I don't know what others think of it, but from what I can already witness on my PC, then I can't see how FSX can be made better than just with the right add-ons and a stronger PC, especially the graphics and speed as well as Ram (they now have already DDR3 Ram memory chips available which is much faster than their DDR2 predecessor), but not with another FS which would cause developers to redo everything again and simmers pulling all their hair out of their body due to that they once again have to buy everything anew. And I think we can agree that most simmers are not that wealthy to go for it once again!!!!!
  11. Having the same problem with Frisco!!! I can't even fly it with lower settings and a very fps friendly little aircraft. And my PC is a high-end one, namely 4 Gb of Ram with a nVidia 8800 GTX 768 Mb Ram. Don't even find the boot.ini file at all nor boot.bak for that matter.
  12. Is there anyone who can help me on this problem please?
  13. Hi, I seem to be unable to install this Aerosoft add-on that I have downloaded. The registration was succesful, but it somehow seem to be unable to locate the FSX folder. Tho that I am logged in as administrator in my Windows Vista PC and that I manually choose and thus browse to the FSX folder, then the installation program still thinks that I haven't done it. What is happening and how can I solve this problem if possible? Thanks for any help and advice on the matter.
  14. Sooorrrrryyyyy, found the english manuals of both airplanes just now. Was a bit too quick with that question.
  15. Just this simple question: Is there a way of getting also an English manual download in PDF, as there came only a German one with the download version? I know a bit German, but not quite good enough to understand it properly, and certainly no technicality German. Thanks for any help to this regard.
