Please note that I’ll be away for a couple of weeks for holidays. I will not response to any emails or comments in this period.
Current users are not required to send me notes for the download link. Just click here or click the image on the right to download the new background directly. Remember that the file must be saved and kept in the original *.bmp format.
To install, simply overwriting the old background with this new one will do. Have fun!
This new Airspeed Gauge is requested by Ray Marshall who would like to have an analog indicator that
goes up to about 400 knots with corresponding digital display for his favorite Cessna Citation.
The bugs, supposed to be movable, however, are static. If time allows in the future, will see if they could be controlled via the two knobs of the FIP itself. If not, will consider adding other features to go with them.
FSX Times Subscribers could ask for the download link via COMMENTS section below.
In the package, an earlier made version that uses a thicker needle is also provided as shown on the right. But note that the thicker needle could make the digital display hard to read when the aircraft is at low speed.
As always, requests from non-FSX Times subscribers will be ignored.
ShadeShifter 3.01a is ready for download. (No idea what ShadeShifter is? Read here.)
In addition to minor code enhancements to the last version, it also comes with two versions:-
When ShadeShifter is run:
Version 1 will display today’s Shade Preset info as the previous version does.
I’ve been planning to build a new PC for many months now. Unfortunately, final decision still hasn’t been made due to rumors that this and that newer and better hardware are coming in a few months — I know we never can catch up with the latest technology.
Anyway, the following guide from Jetline Systems that I came across is a good quick reference. For example, I originally put Nvidia GTX 690 on my purchase list for the new PC since I am planning to expand my system into a 3-monitor setup. The guide reminds me again that Nvidia GTX 690 and other dual GPU cards might significantly impact FSX performance. Even though the info isn’t detailed and comprehensive, I am now putting the card on hold and searching for more information.
If you are planning an upgrade for your computer like me, worth taking a look of this guide to get some references of what hardware we should focus on for a better FSX system. We could also gain some hardware information that the company selects to build their PCs for FSX customers.
My Google Map for Orbx NA Airports and Landmarks have been updated with the inclusion of the new Southern Alaska Areas (SAK).
Those who are currently using my Google Earth Network Links should find their maps updated already. Any others who are interested to try my maps could see my Post 70 and Post 74 for the Landmarks Map and Airports Map respectively.
