  1. gday. have just installed YBCG for FSX steam. with YBCG NOT activated FSX loads [with Orbx aust 2] with YBCG activated i get a crash at the load scenery sequence. does anyone have some ideas about this? i'm also using Scenery Config Editor to organize my scenery. thanks.
  2. I have looked at other support forums with the same problem but those solutions didn't help. I had the application running before and then it stopped opening properly (window was always hidden), so i tried multiple times to reinstall, and this always happens. It gets stuck at around 30%. Already tried: deleting all app data and reinstall, tried restarting computer, tried after windows updates. I have looked at the user manual for Orbx central page 27 and other pages like suggested) but I don't see anywhere where it describes how to solve this issue. I bought the Europe package (on top of base and vectors) and really want to be able to install it or I would request a refund. Thank you for your help, please get back asap.
  3. Hi I have recently installed PAKT and confirm that the airport elevation with sloping taxiways works for me. Makes it quite different to most other airports. However, I appear to run into some difficulty with the touch down when using Rwy 29. As far as I can tell, from watching a number of replays, the approach and touchdown is well within the parameters for a good touchdown when using Flight 1's King Air B200 eg stabilised initial approach @ 120 kts flaps 1 gear down reducing to 100-95 kts "over the fence" and <100 fpm on flaring. Unfortunately, at touchdown there is marked bounce which is totally unexpected and leads to a scramble to complete the landing. I have not experienced the same problem when landing in the opposite direction i.e. Rwy 11. Has anyone else experienced this problem and who could point me in the correct direction to fix this matter? Besides this issue the scenery works well and I really do enjoy the challenges of Alaska and Canada. I imagine that with FS Captain the winter operations with icing etc will become even more challenging. Thanks you
  4. Good Day I am sorry if these are stupid questions, but I have been battling for about 8 days to get the scenery up & running! Once I have down loaded via the FTX Central, are there any settings that need to be changed in FSX itself? I have also noticed that ALL my other paid scenery from a specific country has been "deleted" IE in the FSX scenery layer/priority list it does not show anymore! I purchased the following packs: 1. FTX Global base Pack 2. NA Pacific Northwest 3. NA Southern Alaska What would my priority list look like in FSX please? Thanking you in advance! 7 have a nice day! Regards Richard Schmidt
  5. Regards my fsx steam simulator presents this problem since I installed openLc, you can see the problem in the following link to Youtube
  6. I recently purchased and Installed LOWI Innsbruck Airport, receipt# 5a9f63cd7e224. The scenery looks great and works well with the exception of a strange static noise in the cockpit view. I have tried several aircraft, and they all have the same issue. Has anyone experienced this problem? Thanks, Mike
  7. This may seem like a crazy question, but does anyone know if Orbx will continue to develop FSX Steam airports. I had a heart attack when I saw the new X-Plane airport. I only use FSX Steam and I have a lot of money invested in Orbx.
  8.

  9. Dear Orbx Sir/Mme., sorry for a help request for some -I can imagine- so basic questions. I'm a real rookie in Flight Simulation. I'm just trying to configure a good software base to train in FSX with a little more realistic scenery. After asking some friends, I have chosen ORBX as the community consider your brand as a warranty of quality, and some videos and screenshots comparing with other products, seem to say the same. Moreover, I'm failing in achieving the expected result. I have installed (no more than 2 months ago) FSX Steam over Windows 10. With FSX Steam I bought and installed also REX 4 Texture. I use FSX to train in flights (currently) over Ireland. I'm in fact flight instructor flying in South of Ireland diary. Original FSXscenario is so bad, that it was totally impossible to me neither recognize the main landmarks or coastline accidents. I installed some freeware Ireland scenery (ireland+some Irish airports) with some improvement, but still far from what I was looking for. So, I decided to buy ORBX EU_Ireland, after seeing how it was supposed to look like. Moreover, after having installed it and configured FSX as recommended in your instructions, the results are far distant from what expected (poorer) in terms of realism, detail or precision. - My questions are if to achieve the results that you are showing I need to install other ORBX payware products as FTX Global Base Pack, Vector or Open LC Europe, or if the product Irelan_EU should be self-sufficient to achieve the expected quality. - If so, which of those products are required to be installed simultaneously? - I installed FTX Central. I have installed in FSX the addon FTX EU_Ireland as well as some of your freeware to test and compare and enjoy in other environments. That's how my top of scenery list looks like: Is that correct? Should I change the rank? Before last ORBX installations, on top there use be just something lije "Addons scenery" before the default ones. That has just disappeared. Is that correct? If finally I install Global Base Pack, Vector and/or Open LC Europe, which is the correct order for optimum results? Thanks for your assistance Carles Algué
  10. I reinstalled my fsx steam and managed to intstall orbx libraries and Orbx Global base pack, after install of base pack I migrated on suggestion. But now Ftx central crashes when I try to install any other of my Orbx produts in Fsx Steam. But I can still install in my P3D v4 sim with ftx central without crash. I attach logfile ftxc3.log
  11. I'm using ORBX Scenery with both FSX Steam (DX10) and FSX Acceleration (DX9). Originally I only had one ORBX installation on my PC which was in the FSX Acceleration folder tree and used symlinks to access the scenery from FSX:SE. All went well until the FTX Central v2.1 migration, when the migration software removed the symlinks created two separate copies of the scenery in both FSX Acceleration and FSX Steam. As this still appeared to work, I decided not to bother using symlinks and left things as they were. But all is not well. Whenever I add any updates, the installers will only install into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\. So I'm stuck. There seems to be no way to perform updates on both installations. I've tried using symlinks again but that didn't work. I've also tried copying the updated folders from FSC Acceleration to FSX Steam, but according to Windows 10, the copy would take more than a day, so I had to cancel the copy. This has damaged the FSX Steam installation. FSX Steam now starts to generate it's scenery indexes, gets to 52% and hangs. The only thing I can think of to repair the FSX Steam scenery is to run the FTX Central v2.1 migration again in the hope that it will re install the scenery just as it did when it first ran a few months ago. Bit I'm geting scared of doing more damage. So can someone tell me how I can safely get FTX Installers to update both FSX Acceleration and FSX Steam? I posted on a similar topic on Saturday, but the post seems to have gone unnoticed for some reason. Regards. Pontius.
  12. Hi all! The past weeks have been extremely exciting in the flight sim community! Like some of you, I am wondering which direction I want to go in the future. FSX has been my platform since it came out and I ran it on my old Dell Inspiron laptop getting 10 fps. Ha. The good old days, right? Since then, I have run it on 2 other computers and eventually got into addons and tweaking and like everyone else, began running into OOMs. Like the rest of you, I have been sacrificing beautiful scenery for virtual space and just waiting for a better option. Well, now, just in the past few weeks, many options have emerged. Aerofly. Flight Sim World. And now, P3d v4. I have reservations about Aerofly and Flight Sim World (topics for a different thread) and so, in the sense of exploring options, my question is this.... If I would decide to switch from FSX to P3d v4, could I install the beautiful sceneries I bought from ORBX for FSX into P3D v4? Or would I need to buy them again for P3D? To clarify, I have bought many great sceneries from ORBX for FSX. Would I need to buy them again for P3D v4 or would I be able to install my current ORBX sceneries into P3D v4 through FTX Central? Thanks much!
  13. Hello I was flying the other day in FSX and clicked on views in the menu bar in FSX Steam and went to View Mode, AirTraffic and noticed that in the list of planes, each plane has a double…. there are 2 of every plane. Then when I clicked on one of those planes, I get 2 identical planes flying in the air, almost one on top of the other. Very weird. How can I fix this and what is causing it. I really don't care but my concern is that the doubling up of planes may cause a frame rate hit. And if I did get rid of each and every doulbe plane, (don't know how) how would that affect my plane traffic at airports…would the plane traffic be cut in half? I have not installed any third party traffic software. Please help. Pete.
  14. Good evening, I have 2 simulators installed on my computer : FSX Steam Edition and Prepard V3. I decided recently to use both simulators, which means I want to use FTX Global in FSX and P3d. FTX Global is at the moment installed in P3d. I started the installer and selected FSX (there's no FSX SE) continued and the program shows me that it's going to be installed in the Prear3D directory although I selected FSX. I once deleted FTX Global from Prepar3d to try if this time it installs correctly, but it didn't. How can I solve this problem ?
  15. I've just about had a belly full of this. I've had a terrible time with FSX Steam and ORBX scenery since the weekend. I removed FSX Acceleration yesterday only to find that FSX Steam would not come out of co-existence mode. So I went through all the confounded rigmarole of uninstalling and re installing FSX Steam - to find that it created registry entries and folders for both FSX and FSX:-E. But experiment showed that it was probably ignoring the FSX-SE entries so I carried on. I sat through the download for FTX Global base and through most of the installation. Then this happened: System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException: 'The invocation of the constructor on type 'Orbx.FTXCentral.MainWindow' that matches the specified binding constraints threw an exception.' Line number '6' and line position '9'. ---> System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\ORBX\Scripts\FTXCentral\Regions'. at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath) at System.IO.FileSystemEnumerableIterator`1.CommonInit() at System.IO.FileSystemEnumerableIterator`1..ctor(String path, String originalUserPath, String searchPattern, SearchOption searchOption, SearchResultHandler`1 resultHandler, Boolean checkHost) at System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(String path, String searchPattern) at Orbx.FTXCentral.RegionSwitch.UnifiedMigration.RegionsInstalled() at Orbx.FTXCentral.RegionSwitch.UnifiedMigration..ctor() at Orbx.FTXCentral.MainWindow..ctor() --- End of inner exception stack trace --- at System.Windows.Markup.WpfXamlLoader.Load(XamlReader xamlReader, IXamlObjectWriterFactory writerFactory, Boolean skipJournaledProperties, Object rootObject, XamlObjectWriterSettings settings, Uri baseUri) at System.Windows.Markup.WpfXamlLoader.LoadBaml(XamlReader xamlReader, Boolean skipJournaledProperties, Object rootObject, XamlAccessLevel accessLevel, Uri baseUri) at System.Windows.Markup.XamlReader.LoadBaml(Stream stream, ParserContext parserContext, Object parent, Boolean closeStream) at System.Windows.Application.LoadBamlStreamWithSyncInfo(Stream stream, ParserContext pc) at System.Windows.Application.LoadComponent(Uri resourceLocator, Boolean bSkipJournaledProperties) at System.Windows.Application.DoStartup() at System.Windows.Application.<.ctor>b__1_0(Object unused) at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.InternalRealCall(Delegate callback, Object args, Int32 numArgs) at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.TryCatchWhen(Object source, Delegate callback, Object args, Int32 numArgs, Delegate catchHandler) at System.Windows.Threading.DispatcherOperation.InvokeImpl() at System.Windows.Threading.DispatcherOperation.InvokeInSecurityContext(Object state) at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.RunInternal(ExecutionContext executionContext, ContextCallback callback, Object state, Boolean preserveSyncCtx) at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.Run(ExecutionContext executionContext, ContextCallback callback, Object state, Boolean preserveSyncCtx) at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.Run(ExecutionContext executionContext, ContextCallback callback, Object state) at MS.Internal.CulturePreservingExecutionContext.Run(CulturePreservingExecutionContext executionContext, ContextCallback callback, Object state) at System.Windows.Threading.DispatcherOperation.Invoke() at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.ProcessQueue() at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.WndProcHook(IntPtr hwnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam, Boolean& handled) at MS.Win32.HwndWrapper.WndProc(IntPtr hwnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam, Boolean& handled) at MS.Win32.HwndSubclass.DispatcherCallbackOperation(Object o) at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.InternalRealCall(Delegate callback, Object args, Int32 numArgs) at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.TryCatchWhen(Object source, Delegate callback, Object args, Int32 numArgs, Delegate catchHandler) at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.LegacyInvokeImpl(DispatcherPriority priority, TimeSpan timeout, Delegate method, Object args, Int32 numArgs) at MS.Win32.HwndSubclass.SubclassWndProc(IntPtr hwnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam) at MS.Win32.UnsafeNativeMethods.DispatchMessage(MSG& msg) at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.PushFrameImpl(DispatcherFrame frame) at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.PushFrame(DispatcherFrame frame) at System.Windows.Application.RunDispatcher(Object ignore) at System.Windows.Application.RunInternal(Window window) at System.Windows.Application.Run(Window window) at System.Windows.Application.Run() at Orbx.FTXCentral.App.Main() I'm sorry if I appear rather irate, but I've had problem after problem since the weekend and this last one is about the last straw. So what do I do now? Reinstall FSX Steam again? Pontius.
  16. I have really enjoyed all my new scenery I purchased over the holidays. I would like to buy the Lancair aircraft from Orbx and want to know if that plane will show interior shadows in the cockpit when flying. Since I believe the old default planes did not enable interior shadows as far as I can tell, I want a plane that does and assume that a new plane from Orbx would. I am on FSX steam. Can anyone confirm interior shadows? Thanks. Pete.
  17. I bought and installed NA Northern Calif along with freeware Holgermesh Papua New Guinea. This is running on top of FS Genesis mesh. Now alot of my Pacific scerenry looks like this?

  19. I've just uninstalled FSX Acceleration and now my only FSX installation is FSX Steam Edition. I've followed the advice found here: to clean up the registry. I checked HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator - Steam Edition and there is no entry named co-existence so I assumed that it wasn't in co-existence mode to start with. I then started FSX Steam to create the FSX folders in ProgramData and AppData, but after completing all it's initialization all the new folders were named FSX-SE. I've added the missing co-existence entry in regedit as a new string value directly under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator - Steam Edition and set it to 0. I then deleted the FSX-SE folders and re started FSX. Despite adding the new key, FSX Steam persists with starting in co-existence mode. So what do I do now? Any ideas? Regards. Pontius.
  20. Good Morning. Pardon me if this has been asked before, but I notice that Nick Cooper has two versions of FSX running (both Gold and Steam), presumably using the same ORBX scenery. I had a problem with my PC which meant that I had to re install FSX Steam. As a result there are now FSX-SE and FSX folders on my hard drive. Unlike the last time this happened, This hasn't caused any serious problems, but FTX Central seems to think that I'm running two versions of FSX and asks me to select a version every time I start the application. I would like to ba able to run both versions so that I can have one for DX10 and the other for DX9. Is this simply a matter of re installing FSX Gold again? Or is it a bit more complicated than that. Pontius.
  21. Hello All!, I'm looking to add FTX Global Base and FTX Global Vector to my FSX Steam Edition install. I gather Global Base is compatible with FSX Steam edition, but Global Vector is not, yet? 1) Will FTX Global Vector be made FSX Steam Edition compatible? 2) Will FTX Global Base and/or FTX Global Vector be sold through Steam? 3) Should I plan on purchasing both directly from the website? 4) I gather the products go on sale from time to time, is there any way of being notified of these sales? Thanks all, if I missed the questions being addressed in the forum, please forgive me.

  24. The press release seems to suggest that they have made some changes to the game including the multi-player element. Whether this includes the DX10 issues being fixed natively or even a DX11 implementation remains to be seen. But nonetheless, I'll be following this with interest.
