Just came across this FreeMeshX from NineTwo Production on the Internet, which was released in early May. It looks gorgeous. Some simmers on the Avism.com forum (extra information about the FreeMeshX here) say it is significantly better than the FS Global or even the FS Global Ultimate in some aspects.
It’s completely free. Worth some download hours to get them, especially you don’t have any mesh so far.
Fantasized for months to get myself a Nvidia GTX Titan card after reading reports and youtubes about the phenomenal boost in FSX/P3D performance with it. The past weekend, I finally made to get an over-clocked Titan X seated in my system.
My first impression about the card out of the box — Continue reading
A friend recently asked if there is a simple way to change the barometric units from inHg to mBar on the Altimeter. Unfortunately, no, it is NOT possible on the earlier free gauges. But YES, it is possible on the paid gauges as their codings and image designs have been rewritten.
This automatic barometric unit switching feature should have been implemented earlier. Anyway, here it comes at last.
Users of the current Continue reading
Received some comments from friends who said the faceplate of the current Standalone Wet Compass is a bit wide. Well, it very much depends on personal preferences.
Anyway, here’ the face-lift version. Current users should have the new faceplate in their mailbox now.
If not, let know me in the Comment section below.
The ability of starting up multiple FIPs in specific order everytime has been a feature requested by almost all FIP users for a long long time. Saitek has finally implemented it onto its new drivers. However, this feature may need another tweak in order to function.
After the installation of the new drivers, a file called “SaiFlightFip.xml” containing the current setup information of the FIPs and the gauges should be created accordingly.
Via this “SaiFlightFip.xml”, the start-up order of the multiple gauges can be specified as desired.
The file is supposed to be stored under: Continue reading
Normally, driver installation should be no more than pointing-and-clicking on the mouse. Saitek’s new ProFlight drivers, “ProFlight_FSX_Plugin_7_0_40_9_x64_Software” and “Saitek_Pro_Flight_Instrument_Panel_7_0_40_9_x64_Full_pfw”, however, might need a little tweak.
Some friends said to me that the installation of these two drivers was as easy as snapping fingers. However, there were others telling me the opposite. To be more exact, their FIPs wouldn’t start up after the installation, even though all the other Saitek gears work as usual.
To me, both statements are true since I experienced both extremes myself over the last few days. Continue reading
Just installed the new Saitek drivers two days ago as its latest capability of displaying FIPs in desired order at start-up every time is a killer feature which has been longed for by almost all FIP users.
However, the installation or the upgrading of it could be a bit tricky. I will write up another post later.
A good news, the FIP Customizer by Alexey still work perfectly with the new driver. His other utility — the FIP Toolkit — has yet been checked, however.
The Product Report generated via FTX Central is getting harder and harder to read when the list of the installed scenery is building up.
To enhance readability, Continue reading
