  1. Hi, please help with the following:

     

    When starting FSX and after customizing the settings and clicking “save” where should the setting profile be saved so it will always load the  saved settings every time you start FSX?

     

    Thank you for your help.

  2. I have sent to PC Aviation’s support dept.  more than 10 e-mails, have opened more than 3 different tickets and no answer. That is why I am begging from any fellow simmer that is familiar with MegaSceneryEarths´ sceneries to give me a hand with the following issue.

     

    Although I have similar problems with the Belgium, Netherland and England sceneries I will only address the problem I have with the Germany North scenery since this is the scenery that is in worse shape.    As it can be appreciated in the attached image of the area around Neubrandenburg there are three areas that have different texture, color, resolution, etc. adjacent to each other and meet at one common point.  I don´t think is my wrong doing because I have followed the installations instructions very closely and reloaded the scenery several time by hand (one by one) and also as a group using their Installer Manager utility software.

     

    Can someone tell me if this problem can be fixed and how? There are other areas within the same scenery that have the same kind of problem as well as discoloring, watermasking, etc. a real mess.    TY!!!

    PS, the area around the airport of Northampton, EGBK in the England Scenery has the same problem with adjacent areas of different quality and texture.

  4. Hello, please help me with this problem. I acquired more that 15 Mega Scenery Earth (MGSE) sceneries from PC Pilot and need assistance:

     

    After loading a backup of FSX made with Ghost32n11.5.1 (software to make backups) all the MGSE sceneries got messed up.  The color of the sceneries got degraded, MGSE´s areas got mixed up with default areas, I also got black areas, etc. Since PC Pilot did not answer my plead for help I continue trying on my own to solve the problem:

     

    -Using the Install Manager I uninstall al Mega Sceneries from the PC.

    - I deleted all other remaining MGSCs´ files from the PC

    - I checked all remaining FSXs´ default sceneries and they were OK.

    - I loaded back Orlando Ultra Res Cities and Florida MGSCs. Manually, one by one.

    - On FSX´s “setting scenery library” I set KMIA airport on top of Miami City (my own sceneries) follow by MGSC´s Orlando Ultra Res Cities and Florida MGSC.

     

    Results: 

    -Miami City area and airport looks OK.  

     -The problem with MGSs´ areas getting mixed up with FSXs´ default areas was fixed.

    - No more black squares.

    - Unfortunately, the problem with color quality remains. The colors are too dark, the green and brown in some areas get to become almost black. I repeated the above steps loading Switzerland Mega Scenery Earth and got the same results.

     

    Why is this happening? Is it because Ghost32 cannot be use to make backups of FSX if you have MGSE installed?  Why after I clear all MGSE from FSX and reload them the colors remain off?  What can I do next?  Thank you for your much needed help.     Marbasan.

  5. Attached, answer from other forum on the subject in question. Marbasan.

     

     

     

    The only thing you will visually notice is that FSX will load faster, besides that there is no other visual clue.
    Of course files will load faster from the SSD into memory, but you wont observe that, so things will just be more responsive than compared to a HDD.

    The over all loading experience will be faster, loading aircraft, airports and so on.

    I have been using SSD so long I cannot recall the real differences anymore, I just remember things was happening faster then HDD, lot faster.

    I would never use a HDD again besides for backing up all my stuff.

    I have 2 SSD's 1 for OS and all stuff that run on the C: drive and 1 SSD for FSX and all my FS related add-ons.


  6. Hi, VOLKER,

    Problem solved!!!! It worked beautifully and it was user´s error (my error).

    Much grateful for the invested time, professionalism, and interest shown in solving the problem.

    TY!!!!! MARBASAN.

    Findings and fixes as follow:

    A glimpse of me in the LOG file of the Database Manager and the problem was

    visible.

    The settings you made in the library are wrong.

    See here the incorrect entry in your scenery.cfg. :

    [Area.160]

    Title=SEQM2013.1.1

    Local=Addon Scenery\SEQM2013.1.1\SCENERY

    Active=TRUE

    Required=FALSE

    Layer=160

    In this case, notify the DBM following error message:

    No folder or BGL file exist for Layer: 160

    C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MICROSOFT GAMES\MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR X\ADDON

    SCENERY\SEQM2013.1.1\SCENERY\scenery\

    Compare my settings in the SCENERYCFG with your settings.

    [Area.141]

    Title=SEQM2013.1.2.3

    Local=Addon Scenery\SEQM2013.1.2.3

    Active=TRUE

    Required=FALSE

    Layer=132

    In my settings, the Database Manager will find immediately the SEQM airport.

    00001 , 0132 , SEQM - New Mariscal Sucre

    F:\FSX\ADDON SCENERY\SEQM2013.1.2.3\scenery\AF2_SEQM.bgl

    What can you do now?

    There are only the following solution:

    Run your FSX.

    Go to SETTINGS.

    Choose Scenery Library.

    Choose Scenery area SEQM2013.1.2.3.

    Choose Button Delete Area.

    Click OK.

    Click Yes.

    Click OK.

    The database is rebuild.

    Select Scenery Library.

    Click button Add area.

    Double click Folder Addon Scenery.

    Click SEQM2013.1.2.3.

    Click OK button.

    Click OK button.

    The database is rebuild.

    Finish the FSX.

    Run the Database Manager again.


  7. Hi Volker,

    1. I have my PC connected to a local Lan/d-link with other two computers installed by the TV Internet provider. I am not technically savvy and this is way over my head.

    2. FSC is installed in: C:\Aerosoft\FSC9

    3. The programs was installed by right-clicking and selecting "install or run

    as administrator.

    4. I have four separated partitions installed in my computer (someone else did it for me). The instructions call for “installing FSC under any drive/partition other than C:

    In C: I have W7. FSX

    In F: I have WXP. FS9

    In D: I have W7

    In E: I have W7

    I am confused, if I install FSC in any other partition there will be no communication between partitions because only one partition work at a time.

    5. “Suppress extension of known file” Done.

    6. I don’t remember if when I installed FSX I Did it for “for all users”. But I will not reinstall FSX because that means to start from Cero and reload all softwares UFFF……..

    What do you suggest? I must say that it is very complicated to install FSC correctly.

    Thank you for your help. MARBASAN.

    I will appreciate any help that you could provide. MARBASAN.


  9. There is a new airport built in the city of Quito, Ecuador, South America SEQM that replaces de old one SEQU. It seems FS Commander9 is missing to provide this new information. FS Navigator has it but without Sids and Stars, iFly 737 and Level D 763 has it. I haven´t had the time to check other databases.

    Premises:

    I have installed the new airport from http://freewarescenery.com/

    I also have installed NavDataPro 1302.

    I also ran FSC9 Database Manager.

    The AFCAD containing all necessary airport information is missing.

    I reviewed all AFCAD and they have all required info: rwy, terminals, ILS, lights, etc. This is not the problem.

    FSC reads all airport information according to the scenery.cfg. But if a developer installs his scenery into the directory ".\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Scenery", which is against all rules, it also can not be found. Have seen this for example with some African sceneries.

    I desagree, as I understand Freeware and some Payware sceneries are installed in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X\Scenery. Why is this against the rules only for FSC? If this is the case there is something wrong with FSC. Only some sceneries seem to get installed in the directory indicated by FSC. This is not the problem.

    I also patiently reviewed SCENARY: CFG and corrected all that could be giving problems. This is not the problem.

    Why FSC has this problem and FSNAV has not?????

    Buy the way, I also reviewed all of my installed Add-ons and founded some airports that were not recognize by FSC. They were mostly small airports that I installed for VFR flights.

    Thank you for your interest!!!


  10. I have FSCommander 9.2 installed.

    What do I have to do after installing new airport sceneries?

    I don´t understand the meaning of: “update the relevant FSCommander files”. Which files?

    I understand I have to run the Data Base Manager again. I assume this means to run the NavDataPro or any of the other available in the marked. Why do I have to do this? This will force me to use up one dataset download every time I load new Airport scenery. Insane!!!! I only purchased 4 database downloads per year from Aerosoft.

    Please help me to clear up this issue. TY!!!!!! MARBASAN.

  11. AchillesP

    There we go again. I need to revalidate my serial no. !!!

    I work with two Windows 7, FSX partitions on my PC. In addition I use a software “Ghost” to create backups of these partitions. When things go wrong I have to start from cero rebuilding any one of these partitions. Sometime I call back an old backup that DO NOT HAVE XTREME INSTALLED and I get in trouble because I have to open a new ticket and ask you for a revalidation. This is a pain on the neck.

    Please free me of this problem and give me a serial No. that does not need a constant revalidation. TY!!!!


  12. Thank you for your answer. Much appreciated.

    Unfortunatelly I can´t load the Xtreme because I have a problem pending with FSPS: I need a new key to reload Xtreme after I reconfigured my set up. They resist to send me the new key and I don´t know why!!!! I have sent them all required information, opened a new ticket, etc,etc, and nothing happen. I have the feeling they want you to invest $ 15 every time you reconfigure your environment, which I considre a swindle.
