  1. Hi, the DLL is always in the package but active in licensed installations only (in general). Hoeever, you may try to find out if it would help your situation. When flying around in the proximity of Innsbruck airport (LOWI) the DLL will be active regardless, for demo pusposes. BR, Peter
  2. Actually I have no clue. I'd suggest to selectively switch off other addons to exclude interference with those. Btw, I got into contact with A2A, they are going to check the DLL-installation isse. I'll keep you posted. BR, Peter
  3. Hi Akos, I checked the A2A with the free P40, seems to be their DLL. Move this section to the end of the list, just before </SimBase.Document>: <Launch.Addon> <Name>A2A Service</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>A2A\Shared\A2A_Service.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> BR, Peter
  4. Sorry, In my previous post I meant the Maule of Course. Yes, the it is the upper_frame_rate_limit parameter in the FSX.CFG, but "Target frame rate:" in the GUI. But you may check before, what FPS you achieve in unlimited mode, to get an idea about performance margins. I saw also in the DLL.xml , that you installed some A2A package and the DX 10 fixer. So far I haven't got any feedback on trouble with CumulusX! with these two, but it might be worth a try to deactivate the two other dlls, to see if there is any difference. If so, I'd suggest to move the CumulusXDLL-entry before the others (once there was such interference with ActiveSky, but fixed meanwhile on their side). You may change line 5 in your dll.xml from <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> To: <Launch.ManualLoad>True</Launch.ManualLoad> to decide on loading of each DLL separately. On different turning, the circuit pattern direction is not active anymore approx. 300 m AGL, the tow plan targets the next recognizable thermal then which results into any required turning direction. best regards, Peter
  5. Hi Akos, What error message was displayed? Please check, if the dll exists at the given path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\Modules\CumulusX!\CumulusXDLL.dll Please the actual FPS by Shift-Z, and lower to an even fraction of 60 (20, 15 ...) below what is shown by the FPS indicator (I saw that you have set 30), but when the CPU is overloaded, it has weird effects. Not all plane models are fully compatbile with smart tow, but it looks like the Husky which is. In any case, please install by right click the CMD and select "Run as Administrator", and the choose the FSX Steam base directory for installation. best regards, Peter
  6. Hi Scott, first many thanks for your long term committment to SOAR and keeping track of things! Indeed, very interesting news, I'm really curious how they will go forward. BR, Peter
  7. Hi Scott,

    pls send me your name, address and your regular e-mail. I will send you a license for free.

    BR, Peter

      Hey Peter, if you are wondering why I deleted my follow-up reply, I couldn't edit my address out of it so the only course of action was to delete the whole reply.  What I should have done was just email you instead of posting it here where everybody could see it.  Hope I'm not being too paranoid.

  8. Hi Josh, install FSX SP1 and SP2, and it will work, bests, Peter
  9. In the related thread it is stated that the software has to be run under admin rights. Unfortunately, under W7 this is not even sufficient, if files are to be created or altered in "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)", unless you execute FSX with "Right-click, Run as Admin". However, you can more easily make it work, and thereby running FSX and its related add-ons from a Standard User Account (yes and leaving UAC active) by logging in as admin and giving the group "Users" (or even lower, e.g. "Everyone", not recommended, though) full access to to the directories in question, i.e. FSX root directory and all its subdirectories. By doing so you can run FSX from any user account without sacrificing OS security by turning off UAC or working as admin all the time. This solution works for most older programs and can also be extended to registry entries in the HKLM branch likewise. best regards, Peter
  10. A PC capable of running FSX smoothly is required, there should be many recommendations on the web regarding this. There are no special requirements for soaring. For the controls a joystick is required (I'm very happy with the Saitek-PC-Aviator), and I recommend strongly rudder pedals, in particular for gliders. A large monitor (24" or more, or several monitors) improves wide angle field of view and adds to "immersive" feeling. The lack of wide-angle field of view is one of the most apparent differences in the visual perception for those who know real-world flying. As you have already real-world gliding experience, there is not much theory to add for simulation. I would do everything as exercised in the past, that will do pretty well, I expect. bests, Peter
  11. I heard that the guys from UK-Virtual Soaring are pretty good at it. I currently do not have chance yet to try it out myself, neither supporting it. best regards, Peter
  12. Hi Teepa, thermals will be found only under the "special" clouds produced by CumulusX! (or somewhere in the blue if no clouds are present at all), and not necessarily under the "normal" FSX clouds. To make the difference clear, set weather theme to "Fair Weather" first and tick the "UnBlue" option in the Add-on Menu of FSX under the branch CumulusX!. This should show you the CumulusX! clouds only and make it easier to fly to the spots where you'll find definetely thermal lift. best regards, Peter
  13. HI Scott, afaik, for FS9 the free version of FSUIPC does support GPS out, too. bests, Peter
  14. Yes. Have a look here: http://www.pocketfms.com/2-DownUtility.asp Look for XConn! bests, Peter
  15. Great tip, com0com works already with me in local loopback, thanks!
