  1. I notice there has been some rather heated debate about pricing policy and that this debate is bordering on the abusive side. As forum admin, we are obliged to monitor wherever we can and to assist the individual forum admins if necessary. Remember, many manufacturers bring out new versions of their product on a regular basis - especially cars. You cannot expect any discount or refund if you buy the outgoing model a couple of months before the end of the series. You might (notice that word "might" - there is no obligation in any statute) get discounts on the outgoing models. But g

  3. I just followed this thread here from the PC forum where it was originally posted. Sounds like a problem I had a while back - indeed I had a corrupt FSX installation and the only or best cure was to completely re-install FSX from the DVDs, then add all the patches and updates and install Acceleration from the DVD and then install addons like FSUIPC. That really worked for me. Sounds very much like a corrupt FSX install to me too - I shan't even voice my other thoughts. :wink:
  4. Thanks Pete - btw. run as admin on the install - but I didn't in FSX... after all, I installed the darn software, Windows always used to recognise me in the past... or is it my deodorant? :lol:
  5. [edit] Flaming Vista! I'd read many of your "RTFM" stuff with FSUIPC before and with previous versions. I didn't this time - what could be different? After all, it is only FSUIPC? Little did I reckon with the Redmond restricting our rights in FSX and Vista. Those restrictive rules they have embodied are a right PITA. I have had Vista a few days and I am ready to reformat C and go back to XP... Sorry Pete - problem solved. I shall open all my programs as admin in future. I'll leave my message in below for those who may experience same. Chris Hi Pete, I bought FSUIPC for FSX at version 4.
  6. Payment through Simflight, download from your link - Zone Labs firewall and scanner running. Install and registration OK (After I typed my name in full as per the "account" and not just "Chris" - Darn! That had me guessing for a few moments :lol: ) Works OK - exactly as I'd have expected. Thanks Pete! Really good tool - I have the FS9 version too, of course, so it is familiar territory. I don't care what the nay-sayers say about the cost - it is well worth it! You desrve the rewards for your eforts. Now to RTFM and find out how to map the bit below the X52 throttle detente as reverse thrus
  7. Francois is away on holiday for the moment and he may not check soon, so we'll wait on that. But about names being unique - check mine too, There's only two registered in Germany and the other one's my ex-wife :lol: "Brisland" No shame in using your real name here - many do. Or have you got something to hide? :wink: Viel Spaß beim Mitmachen.
  8. I was looking for the aibridge addin and can't find it. The link in your site doesn't seem to bring anything sensible - just a strange page with odd links and a picture of some sky - the title just says Flysplash.org. Is Jose's part of the site down? Anywhere else we can find this addin? EDIT Oooops - corrected - found at avsim ANOTHER EDIT This is fun - if I follow the link to Jose's from your Schiratti page and enter AIBridge into the search box, I get a link back to the Schiratti page...
  9. Fair comments Pete. As far as I can tell though, FSX has the same envmap in use and the same principles. OK, a graphics problem - maybe. I thought of FSUIPC because it can tell the time (weather, location...) and pass this on. The proposed module would not need a graphics specialist though, but someone who could create a module that changes a file on the fly. I can see now, that this texture is like the scenery textures (i.e. you need a reboot) But if it's numbers, nothing is impossible - it just hasn't been done yet. Whoever does this would need to move the new envmap into RAM and overwrit
  10. Hi Pete, I have just been thinking about what info FSUIPC can access during a flight. Perhaps you would care to comment? You may well be aware of the envmap.bmp texture in the FS9/textures folder? This is the background reflection that adds an image to the shine. Well how about if this could be changed in flight according to season, weather or location? What I would envisage is FSUIPC sending appropriate date to a module and calling a new envmap.bmp from a library of appropriate images. At a guess, I'd say this is possible. The problem may be in convincing FS9 to change envmaps "on the fly".
  11. Ah, thanks Burkhard - das werde ich gleich ausprobieren!
  12. Forgive me if you have answered these questions before, simply point me at the answers... 1. On some airports the aircraft are well misplaced - quite a way from where they should be. Noticeably Aerosoft Frankfurt, Berlin Schoenefeld, Bremen (Pictures attached) 2. There is also a problem with the taxiways - for instance, in Hamburg the planes all taxi to runway 15 on the grass between the taxiway and the runway - and take off wrong too. I don't know whether this is MT specific - although things were OK before. But what makes me think is that in Hamburg the "show taxiway route" when I want to
  13. Eskimo proverb: Give a man a fish and he has a meal. Teach a man to catch fish and he never goes hungry again. __________________________________________________________ Asking for help is nothing to be ashamed about - if you learn the skill and don't just grab a meal.
  14. May I just resurrect this post with a question of my own please? (OK, so I am not waiting for an answer :wink: ) I, too, have MYTraffic 2006 - along with severe FPS issues. I think I have the patch correctly installed, but I don't see much improvement. Then I saw the various comments (Burkhard) about DXT 1 and/or DXT 3 textures. I am not really pusrsuing this matter too vigorously at the moment,, as I am building a complete new PC based on the FX62 / Radeon X1900 XTX (I sincerely hope that this will cope with present FS9 matters :lol: ) But the DXT angle seems interesting. Would this be
  15. There are plenty of other modules - sure - I was just hoping that you might have knowledge of this effect and maybe know what the cause may be. Obviously FS9 is doing something - I am just not wise enough in that aspect of the sim. Might have something to do with the addon in that area. I have just spent a longer while around Lukla and it doesn't happen there.
