Re: How can I make this curve?

It would help to know what software you are using to attempt to make the curve. In Photoshop, it is a combination of the 'PEN TOOL' and layers. In GIMP it is called the 'PATHS' tool and again requires the use of layers. Check YouTube for the software you are using for a tutorial on the tool. It is n...

Re: The Day The Music Died

A very sad day it was, Feb 3, 1959. And in one of my favorite aircraft too. RIP to all of them.

Re: C182 Sound Problem - CFG Q

Very interesting. I ran into exactly the same issue about a week ago. I had not made any changes to my fleet of A2A birds, but suddenly, there was no engine sounds from the C-182T. Like you, I tried about everything I could think of. All other A2A birds worked fine, but not the 182. Finally, I resor...

Re: GIMP to DDS exporting

CamAir....Ah gee, you are making me blush! :oops: Thank you for helping me find the solution. Curtis72561.....Agree. GIMP 2.10 (at least) is not quite as user friendly as Photoshop and the backup is well worth the time. GIMP appears to be rather destructive to your work if you are not careful and ma...

Re: can someone explain PBR and what to expect?

I'm not going to address P3D or FSX or A2A for that matter, the question was "can someone explain PBR and what to expect?" PBR (Physically Based Rendering) is how the human eye sees reflective qualities of various materials in computer graphics. I'm only a student of it myself, primarily because of ...

Re: GIMP to DDS exporting

To answer my own question of last August, I have found the solution for anyone else that runs into the problem. Actually, it is two part. 1) GIMP (2.10) does NOT flatten the image the way PS CS-6 with nVidia plug-in does. You have to flatten the set of layers yourself. Suggest that you back-up your ...

Re: New Nvidia Sharpening Setting_In-Sim Screenshots

Turned it on for FSX and it sharpens detail on structures and aircraft without over sharpening. Very much to my liking.

Re: Runway disappears just as I land

I don't think that ORBX North America covers Florida. More than likely, you have the FREE ORBX airports installed. You can go to the FTX_FTXG_AIRPORTS directory under your ORBX/FTS_GLOBAL/Scenery directory, find the ADE_FTX_FTXG_(airport code for the problem airport)_CVX.bgl and rename that file (do...

Re: Finished repaints

Any Chance someone has a link to 90% of the files on this forum? People have disabled all of the links or closed their accounts. No paints, no interiors, no screenshots even I think you may have some other issue. I just checked a couple of my birds and the links are there and work, and the photos a...

Thanks Nick, The link you put in worked. Enjoyed single engine operation but could only envision an old A&E having a cardiac arrest seeing her going down the active with only one engine....slight miss in the port engine sir. :D Can barely wait until WE can fly that bird too. Thanks for the video Sco...
