  1. Thanx, I think that did it. Cumulus X is now Autostarting. DUH!!! I have only flown powered aircraft so far but I saw different values than 0 in Simprobe when flying in mountains, so I think ridge lift is working. I have yet to define a path to "slope database"... no idea where. At one point the website manual said Cumulus X gets elevation data right from the sim and elsewhere I saw that I needed to download special files to define slope lift... Confusing... Best Regards, Donald T :big_boss:
  2. I got messages asking me if I wanted to trust Simprobe and my Saitek software, Simprobe starts with FSX and my joystick has more functionality but Cumulus X still is not autostarting. I have "Autostart" checked in my config. I have included my new exe.xml if it helps. I have a few more questions... What is the IGC file? And also, can Cumulus X really interact with FSX like it says at one point in the manual or do I have to download additional files to get slope lift? If not, where should I point to for the slope database? I have FSGenisis mesh if it makes a difference...

  3. There seems to be no problem combining Cumulus X with Flight Environment X. I am using the latest update with 4096 clouds and the thermal clouds appear fine. Best Regards, Donald T. :big_boss:
  4. I am having trouble with autostarting Cumulus X. It seems to work when I go into the modules folder and doubleclick on CumulusX.EXE but it will not start with FSX. Simprobe does not seem to work even when I manually start it. I have a red mark next to slope database when running CumulusX. I also do not experience the ridge lift. I have included my EXE.xml, I am hoping I did something wrong here that explains my trouble. Simprobe and CumulusX are both in Modules in FSX installation.

  5. I have Flight Enviroment installed, is it compatible with cumulus topped thermals? Any problems? I am really interested in giving Cumulus X a try if not. Thanx in advance for your replies. :winks:
