    I have never used FXS only Infinite Flight and X PLANE but I feel the same. The Monarch updated livery was one of the few that still looked the part. Many other airlines have changed their livery over the years but their new liveries aren't a patch on their old ones.

    Just doing a flight from MUC (Munich) to BHX

    Only 20 passengers checked in today though so Lufty have made a last minuite aircraft change from the usual A319 to a Bombardier CRJ900 :geek:

    I like the cloud effects. It's something that's missing from Infinite Flight.

    Approach screen captures please... ?:)

    When I press 'V' I just get the message Unable to capture your screen shot!

    I've tried changing the screen resolution but no change.

    Any ideas?

    Landing on RWY33 from Amsterdam.

    I did have the actual BHX scenery but can't seem to find it anymore.

    Great to see that there are other 'flightsimmers' here, whatever platform you choose.

    For myself, I'm now running Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D, although I still have FSX and X-Plane 10 installed.

    Ray, the message, plus your loss of scenery files could indicate a corruption of your FSX installation.
    With regard to creating screenshots using the 'V' key, could you check that you have a folder named 'Flight Simulator X Files' in your Libraries/Pictures folder. I'm using Win 7 64bit Pro, but have read reports that Win 10 has caused problems with FSX.
    Also, from within FSX go to your 'scenery' folder (world/Scenery Library) and look to see that your BHX scenery is listed. Also, within the scenery folder, make sure that 'Addon Scenery' is at the top of the list. You can move this to the top by clicking on it and using the 'Move up' button to the right of the scenery list.

    Aviador, for really great real time weather, I highly recommend ActiveSky. This is payware, but in my opinion one of the best additions to flightsim available (Prepar3D, FSX and X-Plane are all supported).

    A few screenshots (Prepar3D) -

    On another note, its good to know that im not the only big kid around here. Especially now that we are approaching winter and sometimes the weather can be lousy, I love playing on my flightsim.

    I started a thread for infinite flight but I don't think I got any interest at all. I suggested a real time meet at BHX and nobody responded.

    It's good to see the simmers are here at last!

    That's good to read, Ray. How did you fix it? Did my suggestion help?
