  1. Max's yawstring works if you move the fsssound.dll as in my other post.
  2. Hope these links work View from the front during the Austrian Competition Flight. External view during the same flight. There are 5 thermals in view in the piccy. I really can't see that this is any different to looking for cloud topped thermals in real life (although I am not a real life pilot). There is a definite area of disturbed air around the thermals and they are of different strengths. There are also some flying eagles that soar in thermal columns for you to look for too. Don't lose your enthusiasm Foster I am enjoying it much more than FS2004. All Wolfgangs gliders work and we ca
  3. 1. No 2. No 3. Yes if you are making thermal scenery but you cannot change the autogen thermals which I presume change with the weather and time. 4. If anything it is worse. There is only a copy of the thermal, leaving you to work out how to do ridge and wave lift and how to do sink. There is a copy of the thermal and ridge scematic indicators. What I did with FS2004 was to decompile the scenery files and look how Microsoft had done it. We now have no compilers to do this with FSX. All scenery files are numerical to follow a grid pattern which is shown in the SDK. So first work out wh
  4. To get Max’s CAI set working in FSX move a copy of FSSound.dll, SOARRec.dll, SOARRec.log and any copy of a GPS-NAV.dat into the main FSX folder. On startup the program asks whether to start both dlls and whether they should become trusted software. Answer in the affirmative. You can then click on the buttons on both the gps-nav and the variometer to get these working. FSZweverview2.exe should also be put into the main FSX directory and this will then load the gps-nav which should be situated in the gauges folder. These remarks apply to mr_fs9_caiset.gau , which is what I use. I am downloa
  5. Has anyone seen the yawstring yet? According to the SDK the yawstring is now in the aircraft config file and is supposed to be in the DG808S. I haven't seen it in either the 2d or VC. I have added the relevant line to Wolfgang's gliders but it still doen't appear. Neither does Max's yawstring either. The standard slip meter does work (Rick Pipers T21 works great in FSX, although there is no dial on the altimeter). I shall just have to go with the report of the British air ministry in the 1920's who refused to sanction canopies for RAF planes on the basis that the pilot had to lean his he
  6. CCS works in FSX. You can download the new FSUIPC and install it to get limited functionality, which I presume includes connecting to the sim so CCS should work for everyone. I would, however, recommend registering a full copy of FSUIPC which gives much more control of the environment - clouds, winds and visibility. I can't get Max's caiset to work though - perhaps it's me so I am continuing to try various options.
  7. Being a curious sort of chap I looked at the files included with the FSX demo. In there is a file called ThermalDescriptions.xml. So, curiosity peaked I opened the file. Not being a programmer it means not a lot save for the bits in plain text. I have copied and pasted below whatI think is interesting particularly in respect of sink. <ThermalDescription id = "{4f5e0001-1e81-11db-9897-001372201444}"> <RadiusMin>2000</RadiusMin> <RadiusMax>3000</RadiusMax> <HeightMin>4000</HeightMin> <HeightMax>6000</HeightMax> <CoreRa
  8. Thanks for that. I reckon the new server is faster. Regards.
