673: MSFS is really Depressing – Update

I am so happy to report that the MSFS on both my machines have recovered from CTDs. One by reinstalling to a new folder.  The other was by replacing the Community Folder with an empty one.

After I posted the CTDs on both my machines yesterday, Robert Temmerman suggested me to remove the Community folder to avoid any potential or tangible incompatibility among the addons in the folder with MSFS update.  He said he ran into similar situations before and it took him a while to figure this out.

Jim Gerow also forwarded me an announcement from RealsimGear saying that their addons are temporarily incompatible with MSFS after France update and they are working onto fixing it.

Sadly, I didn’t receive any notice from RealsimGear nor I alerted enough to aware that the GNSs I recently added to my system would be the culprit causing the crash.

672: MSFS is really Depressing

MSFS is really a depressing game to me. It took me nearly two months to get it installed on my PC in the beginning. Then having this and that issue fixed and solved over the months, I finally had it set up right recently.

I am currently reinstalling the game on one of my machines again.  It’s going to take another 12 hours or so, l believe, for the 171.83GB contents.

The most painful part is, Continue reading

660: SkyElite in FullScreen on iPad

Among the 4 most common browsers on iPads, Edge is the only one that could display SkyElite screens properly straight from loading.  The other three — Chrome, Firefox and Safari — all have misalignment issues (click image below to see the button row at the bottom).   This is due to codings of the browsers themselves, not a SkyElite issue.

However, if we want to display the SkyElite in full screen without the Toolbar on top, Safari is the only choice.  And there are two ways to do it:

659: SkyElite for MSFS Review

This morning, I accidentally came across this less than a month old SkyElite for MSFS by 4FlightSims while searching on the Internet.   It immediately captured my eyesight with its glass-cockpit-style appearance as well as its feature-rich EFIS PFD and moving map interfaces.
And in particular, unlike other similar apps that are run on the iOS system and connected back to the flight simulator in Windows via a “bridging” program, this one is Continue reading
