Re: DLL FATAL ERROR

Thanks Some1 for the help. Unfortunately that's the one I tried to install. It gives me the msg that I can't install DX10 over DX11. Tried to disable DX11 but they said it was an integral part of Windows and could only be deleted. I'm afraid of doing something like that. If I run and allow the DLL I...

Re: DLL FATAL ERROR

Tried to install Directx10, but computer won't let me since I have DirectX11. Was able to load the p40 on my old DirectX9 computer and it DID work , although it wouldn't display properly. Will it only work with directX10 or lower? I tried running as an administrator and in windows xp sp3 mode. Still...

Re: DLL FATAL ERROR

Tried to download it, but it would'nt let me. Maybe because my computer is not connected to the internet. I could try loading on my old internet computer , but then how would I transfer to my Gamer?
Thanks for your help Scott, it really looks good.

Re: Convair B-36 Peacemaker

I believe this B-36 may have come from Chanute AFB. If that's true then they chopped about 40' off of the fuselage. I forget why they did it, but it's still a really big airplane.

Rare find

Many companies promote their product as "never seen before" captured film. Most I've seen a dozen times. However, I just found many real never seen before captured films on YOUTUBE. The search criteria is DIE DEUTSCHE WOCHENSCHAU. Evidently these were ww2 propaganda films made to inspire the German ...

Re: Which Classic aircraft should A2A make?

Have you tried Milton Shupes freeware Spartan Executve? It's pretty nice. Also while visiting his site I found that he's well along on a XP-47J.

Re: A2A w/Accusim Stearman

There are several freeware Stearmans out there if you're interested, but not all are that good. IMHO the best out there is a Stearman 75 crop duster by Robert Sanderson. It does come with some "extras" also. Robert uses a program called "Aerfoil" which is supposed to do a better job of duplicating f...

Re: P-51

Agreed the cost way too high for me to afford. However I was able to get the FS9 P-51 flyable in FSX. I went in the Texture folder and swapped out the back of the prop for the front. Prop and prop2. Now I have two front props on my Mustang. It's not perfect but at least I can fly it. I was also a li...

Re: The prop....

I agree that the prop could be better. It was a monster prop by any standard but doesn't show up well. If the yellow prop tips were more defined I think it would show better. I swapped out my prop texture with a p-51B. It's not as good as it could be, but now you can see how big the prop really was....

Been browsing the forums looking for a solution to my problem. Sounds like other people here are also having problems starting the engines, so my post is here. I shut down my B-29 (WOP Heavy Bombers and Jets) using the S key. Go to restart using the Ctrl+e and absolutely nothing happened. In researc...

FSX TIP VORTICES

Does anyone know how to adjust the wingtip vortices in FSX? Is it in the Cfg. file? Most of the vortices for the Boeing jets start in the middle of nowhere and I would like to adjust them for a more realistic view. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Harold

Tough landing

Awhile back I was walking past Midway airport's runway 27, it was the shortest runway and therefore seldom used . It was hot with a VERY strong wind from the West. I looked up to see an airliner in a place were it didn't belong. He was coming in on runway 27. It was an odd looking bird with a huge t...

i think that within fsx itself there is a button in the set up area that reads allow landing light to illuminate ground. i'm not sure exactly were it is , but it is within microsoft fsx itself. hope this helps
