    That preference doesn't carry over to Windows. The AMD graphics drivers are developed by different teams, and while the OSX AMD driver is clearly better than the nVidia driver, the situation is...

    Not quite sure why your brake assignment didn't work. There are multiple brake functions - toggle on/off with each button press, and hold while the button is depressed. What joystick do you have?...

    Exactly where is this and what custom scenery packages do you have installed for that location? If a scenery package replaces the elevation mesh it's entirely possible for there to be a mismatch with...

    Not true for aircraft. (It is true for custom scenery packages.) You can have any folder structure and group your aircraft in subfolders as you like. What matters is that the Airfoils folder must be...

    That's a known but. Ben's been working on it; hope to fix in 10.30.

    The problem is that X-Plane itself doesn't recognize the mode switch as anything special. Far as X-Plane is concerned, the mode switch is just another set of buttons. The Saitek programming software...

    From everything I've been able to make out, Goodway has been comatose for a couple years. I would not spend any money there.

    The weak link in the chain is the GT 640. 2 GB VRAM is good, but the gpu in the GT 640 is relatively weak. It will run X-Plane 10 OK, but you'll have to keep a lid on the visual quality options like...

    Mostly, X-Plane doesn't detect collisions with buildings and other airplanes, so that's not an issue. I sympathize with the blown tire problem. I suppose you could go into the failures menu and clear...

    There's no crash detection option in X-Plane. I'm not sure of the exact motivation for disabling it in FSX, but in X-Plane a hard landing won't stop you suddenly on the runway. You may bounce...

    I can help you on some of these points (more or less).

    I'm not aware of any means of inputting flight plans to X-Plane's AI aircraft. They just go do their own thing (which isn't real long on the...

    Weird. All I can think is you must be bumping something. Any manual trim input causes the autopilot to disconnect.

    By "the one I should get" you mean X-Plane Global, right? I'd recommend spending the extra money over a regional edition. It's not that much more, and it will save you a bunch of hassle later on when...

    Yeah - they got the aileron animation backwards in the 3D object model. It's actually pretty easy to fix. Find the file Objects/B25J_external.obj and open it with a text editor like WordPad. Near the...

    Take it down a notch to Very High.

    What I use is irrelevant - my video card and my choice of scenery packages are not the same as yours.

    Huge drops in frame rate like this are usually caused by running out of VRAM. X-Plane normally loads the current texture set and object library into the video card and keeps it there. If there isn't...

    The X-Plane autopilot disconnects if you make any trim adjustments (like the AP in many real airplanes). So if the Saitek panel sends any trim data it will disconnect the AP. Another possibility is...

    As a first step, I'd recommend reverting to the current release version, 10.25. You're running the first beta of a long period of development, and it's going to be buggy. Run the installer again and...
