Re: Monitor issue

I dropped the FSX resolution down to 1024*768 then plugged the big monitor in. FSX is now running on the big monitor (although we have lost the sound but that is a minor inconvenience) even though the native resolution for the big monitor is 1920*1080. I suspect the PC graphics card is getting very ...

Re: Monitor issue

Yep, in the FSX settings for display resolution someone has set a setting that is higher than the maximum resolution of the monitor.
Nothing should have been changed on the PC, I am supposed to be the only one who is allowed to meddle with it, but I will try that and see what happens.

Monitor issue

I am a CI at our local RAFAC squadron. One of our flight sims has recently thrown a wobbly. It is old, WIN7 and FSX. Runs windows just fine on a LARGE monitor, but if you start FSX then, after the initial config screen, when I click "Fly Now" it goes blank with a message along the lines of...

It's fixed on FSA but the statistics page here on CBFS still has the penalty and the poor adjusted rating score :'(

Re: PC Dying

Well I "regued" the CPU fan a while ago, it still ran the same high (100degrees) temperatures and slow frame rates. I phoned the company that made the PC (about ten years ago!) and the guy on the phone was incredibly helpful despite the machine age. HE remoted in and tried assorted things ...

An FSAirlines beta client decided that Heathrow 27L was underwater and gave me a 50% rating for the flight!!!

I believe this to be a software bug, I have marked the flight for review but I believe that will not reinstate my rating score here on CBFS.

Any way to get that restored to 100%?

Re: Andovers

I moved two back to EGVN and one to EGQS (on 10th)

I then flew one to EGAA, where the weather was 800 metres visibility and cloud overcast at 200 feet, so right on the limit!

Andovers

Moved myself to EGVN (Brize niceone) today to fly an Andover (A780)

According to the Fleet Status I was the last to fly each and every Andover, yet THREE of them are NOT where I left them according to their own flight logs!

What's going on?
