Cannot re-install FSX
I inadvertently deleted the FSX folder without un-installing the program first. Now I can not re-install the program because FSX insists on repairing itself instead, which I let it do. However, FSX refuses to run after an apparent failure in the ...Message posted on the June 15th, 2012 - 04:27 am ET

Sorta OT: Porked FSX
Well, now. I was wrestling with the windows 7 version of Rhapsody, trying to make it work on Windows 8, and ended up having to use task manager to kill it. It had worked fine for months until I tried to make it work with my MP3 player. Also, it ...Message posted on the August 17th, 2013 - 05:38 pm ET
FSX Default Scenery Error? - Spain's Barajas in wrong location?
Could I get some confirmation of this? I just flew into LEMD, Madrid Barajas Airport in FSX. I don't think I ever added scenery to this area, so I guess this is the default fsx scenery. It just struck me that there's a conflict or disagreement ...Message posted on the June 25th, 2013 - 02:09 pm ET
Screen capture problems with FSX
I can now not get any screenshots when in FSX. Weors fine in FS9 and anything else, but in FSX I now always get a pic of the desktop instead of the FSX screen I'm trying to capture. I say "now" because up to a week ago this was not ...Message posted on the October 13th, 2013 - 12:44 am ET

FSX fatal error
Further to my previous post about my FSX fatal error, I still can't resolve the problem. It occurs 15 - 20 seconds after I start the program and the splash screen appears. I get a 'fatal error' message and the program crashes to the desktop. So ...Message posted on the March 25th, 2013 - 05:54 pm ET
Repost - FSX Scenery Toolbox
Just in case this post didn't how a few days ago, I am reposting it now. I received this email from the Megascenery bunch and wonder if you think it's a good idea to download this free application. Opinions if you have one: A Must Have Free ...Message posted on the January 17th, 2013 - 10:34 am ET
FSX add on scenery question
I've always been a bit confused about adding scenery to FSX. I notice for example that of the two Dover AFB sceneries I've located, one simply says to extract the two .bgl files into the FSX add on folder, restart FSX and enjoy the scenery. Another ...Message posted on the January 19th, 2012 - 05:20 pm ET
Skyvector and FSX
Hi all, I have been experimenting with Skyvector and watching tutorials on youtube on how to use it - seems to be a great tool to create VFR-flight which can also be used with Flightsim, the video says.
