    There are some Radio/CD Player gauges that worked fine in XP but will CTD in Vista or later (Micro$oft completely rewrote the audio subsystem, including removing hardware acceleration; this causes...

    The only Antarctic scenery I've found was originally for FS2000 or 2002, the author (I've forgotten who) stated he didn't think it would work in FS2004, though he didn't specify why.

    I had a very...

    I've always looked on updating drivers as a perfect example of "if it ain't broke don't fix it".

    Driver updates usually address issues with the latest hardware/software and typically are not...

    Almost every time that has happened to me the culprit was a gauge, usually navigation or CD player. Temporarily alias your panel to a similar aircraft that works.

    I think there is a difference between "photoreal" and "photorealistic"; the former uses high-res files of aerial photos and typically only covers a small area (the BlueSky scenery covers large areas...

    Thirty years ago

    I was driving home from traffic court and heard about it on the radio.

    Lol, that happened to me some years ago. I fired up the sim one day to find all my aircraft, default and add-on, had a mirror-like finish of swirling orange and pink and yellow tints; interesting,...

    It is probably an AA issue, play around with your AA mode options. On my system one option gives me clear graphics but the edges of aircraft are jagged, another gives me clear aircraft edges but the...

    The problem with any file over about 500meg is that most file hosting sites will not accept it unless you are a paying member; most forum/library sites (such as flightsim) also have limits on file...

    Many don't even have that, just a "recovery" partition (the D: drive); so if you have a hard drive failure you are SOL.

    This happened recently to a neighbor who asked me to check his laptop...

    Win7 is great, it is what Vista should have been, and more game friendly than Win10; and since you are familiar with XP, Win7 will be more comfortable than Win10 (a friend describes the latter as a...

    Thank you! I've passed up many scenery files because the docs stated they required FSE.

    A large amount of AI in the area, especially if they have high-res textures, will definitely hit the fps. The hit is somewhat random as AI fly in and out of the area you are in, and if you are near...

    I think you meant the image size must be a multiple of two. Many games are quite picky about this; I had a racing sim that would unceremoniously CTD if any image wasn't properly sized. Other games...

    DXT/DDS is a compressed format, when you extract and convert you are essentially "recompressing"; it's just like editing and saving a jpg image. Convert your file to standard bmp and clean up that...
