    Dino, I am really sorry for you. I support you with your decision not to pay ransom. As others have indicated, I would be willing to send you money to rebuild and defend against this happening in the future. You deserve a little after all you have given to the flight sim community.

    In light of how Red Bull handled the Webber/Vettel situation, this could be really interesting!! Marko might need body guards against some angry Aussies if Verstappen is "favored"...!

    yeahhh,, It's certainly a Boeing flow for startup, but it is different enough from the 737 that it threw me for a loop.. Now, when i loaded it, I was at a fully done RJOM with ground trafic, jetways, pushback, everything, so it's hit on memory was most certainly effected by that, but it still seemed pretty heavy..

    I love those kind of shows...looks like a blast! I'm salivating just anticipating the one at Midway Regional in Texas. I got to fly a T-6 Texan and few years back Donna and I flew on a DC-3. Ted http://www.mid-wayregional.com/events

    txnetcop replied to a thread Flt Sim for Windows 10 in Squawks!
    I didn't have any problems loading Gold to Win 10 but it did not run any faster than 30fps and that periodically. So I put my money down on STEAM FSX and LOVE IT! Faster because of the way in which is compiled and so far all my scenery and aircraft have loaded just fine. If you decide to make the plunge let me know. Ted

    Someone on x-Plane.org forum said it was a hack! I wasn't sure exactly what he meant but he said for realism it was a waste of money... That is only second hand info I didn't buy it...waiting to see lots of reviews. Ted

    Hello there!There are a lot of exciting things going on at X-Plane and in the community, and we've got your monthly bulletin about the news and products that make X-Plane great. Check out new scenery buildings, ways to maximize scenery & frame rate, and a modern airliner for your collection. Cities Get a FaceliftX-Plane 10's automatically generated scenery ("autogen") is unique among simulators. It uses the road grid and builds up scenery around it instead of randomly arranging static scenery tiles. The 10.50 update will add a lot of new buildings, including tall skyscrapers, to this system. FAA height data encoded in the underlying scenery will be used to make the buildings roughly match real-world heights. Many of the buildings will also include night lighting textures, so large U.S....

    Hey John~ Thanks for helping me out with the "friendship request" issue. I did not get any notification at all.
    Gigabyte was able to help me with the Blog thing. So we are all set!
    Great teamwork there!
  2. Cool pic of you and the tweet!! I'm very envious. Maybe if I had better eyesight I wouldn't have failed my flight physical and toiled as a crew chief for so many years. Renting planes gets expensive!!

    You're kinda reserved, but I'd sure love to hear some good flying stories of your sometimes. What years were you active and what ypes did you fly?

Inside Beta Testing

by jmig on January 2nd, 2012 at 18:23
Over the last ten years or so, we have all seen MSFS models go from $5.00 each to $50.00 and more. With the increase in pricing, have come increased systems integration and model complexity. Interior and exterior visual acuity rivals today real aircraft. As the realism of flight sim models have increased, so too have the expectations of the consumer.

Developers are caught between the customers’ desire for ever better and more exact models, and the increased costs in man hours to program

End Devices for I/O Cards

Real world pilots control aircraft functions with switches, potentiometers, encoders, etc. We virtual pilots can also control our virtual aircraft with switches, potentiometers, encoders and more…through the I/O card.

Remember the I/O card is nothing more than a middle man between us and the flight simulator. By twisting a knob, or moving a control we send information through the I/O card to our virtual

Using I/O Cards

In an earlier entry I mentioned Input/Output (I/O) cards. Today we will look more closely at them and what they can do to enhance your flight sim experience. We will also look at some different I/O cards and later start building a simple switch panel which will control some of the MSFS basic functions.

Perhaps the most common I/O card available is the one in that old used joystick you have sitting up in the

The Cockpit


I have had several requests for pictures of the cockpit. So I am posting here a few pictures of what the cockpit looks like. Please remember this is the acumination of six or seven years of research and work.

As we continue this blog, I will show you how I made many of the components and panels you see here.
This blog will go through the basic building blocks which together make up the simulator. Also, what

First-Sim & I/O Cards

Here are pictures of my first sim “cockpit”. It consisted of two Go-Flight Modules and three parts I made myself.

I also used two monitors, One for the outside view and another for the instruments. Holding everything was a simple plywood frame I constructed to support the monitors and components.
