  1. Good luck Daniel, will hear you on the radio someday I hope. Take care, Tom.
  2. I would just buy as fast a card as you can afford at the moment. That might mean you do not have to shell out again for a new card when you upgrade the processor or mainboard or both. Having said that, I run a processor that is slightly faster as yours (5600+) and coupled with a GF 430 budget card I even get pretty satisfactory results in FSX. I mean this doesn't look all thát bad I would say :
  3. The message xxx has left the session means he/she is out of multiplayer range. It has nothing to do with the 30 minute rule. You can leave the computer for no longer then 30 minutes if needed but VATSIM prefers you stay around when you are logged in. That's all there is to it. cheers Tom.
  4. Easy way to see if it is the audio : Disable the sound ingame, I believe it was Q in FS9 and it might still be so in FSX. That should give a clue as to the sound being the cause. And you might also try this here : http://technicallyeasy.net/2009/03/fix-audiodgexe-high-cpu-usage/ cheers Tom.
  5. I own 1 plane in FSE and I fly on average about 1 hour a day on it. The last few days I have been battling a burnout for another plane so I am flying a bit more but I generally make about 4k per flight so I am earning enough to stay afloat. Even ordered my own custom paintscheme and I am contemplating buying a second C185 or saving up for a Caravan or Islander which will take me approximately 1 year if I can keep up the current rate. Sofar this month flying the Skywagon I netted 129.000 dollars. Gross was 150.000 so fuel and fees came to about 21k. The last month I did not own my own plane yet and thus only earned 118.000 dollars net while grossing 220.000 dollars. The rent on the Dash 7 cost me a fortune. If you pick a location with player jobs and enough planes for rent you can even make money quickly if you fly treetop VFR with small planes. cheers Tom.
  6. Main program here http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=40824 One of the updates here : http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=163113 For download you need to be registered at the Avsim library. cheers Tom.
  7. I like a nice balance of form and function, but do lean more towards the function... How well does the FMC work? Tim The FMC is reasonably well simulated although it is not as good as the real thing. It does holds though, and the Navdata can be updated through Navigraph. For normal airline flying it is really all you need. Comparable to most other FMC's out there for sure.
  8. Yes. Graphics sub par, systems are up to par with anything. I still immensely enjoy it and the sound is just astonishing. I have modified the Main Panel bitmap to make some more viewing room and it is still my preferred turboprop. Having said that, if form is more important then function, don't get it. If you really enjoy systems, do get it. It is a rewarding plane once mastered. cheers Tom.
  9. In FS9 it happened with certain AA transparency settings enabled on graphics cards. So that may be an area to look at.
  10. Keep in mind that most payware also will need a reinstall due to different hardware. So I would start over fresh as well. cheers Tom.
  11. Per google in the same Captain Sim forum : it works fine with FSNav. I just flew from Tha Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta airport to Houston using FSNav the whole way. I'm not sure about this, you will have to make sure your autopilot is set on NORMAL, not HEADING. cheers Tom.
  12. I've got a very light plantronics headset that I can easily wear for 4 hours or more. Very clear and easy to use, and I can use it as a USB headset but it also has audio jacks. So the choice is mine.
  13. Congratulations Mirza, I'll pop over one of these days for a Balkan flight. Doesn't surprise me one bit you p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ed though, well done! cheers Tom.
  14. And what baffles me even more is that there are payware aircraft for the FS lines that are as indepth as this one is that are a lot more expensive. I do not think this price is out of line compared to similar addons with similar features. Infact, reading the product description and seeing the video's and screenies I think 60 dollars is comparatively cheap. Some other developers would have put this in the 80 dollar+ pricerange. cheers Tom.
  15. Great to read you on the forum again Jesus. You and your family will be in our prayers. Take care and get well soon, Tom.
