Having problems with your Microsoft Flight Simulator X for Windows ?

No 3D Cockpit / Higher resolution (Poor graphics)

\015 Good day,\015\012\015\012I am having a problem with FSX. I have just bought it, along with a new system. My specs are as follows:\015\012\015\012Quad Core 2.6\015\0124 gigs ram\015\012Nvidia GTS 250 1 gig\015\012Windows vista home premium\015\012\015\012This machine runs Crysis very well etc... After installing flight sim gold, I saw that there was no 3D cockpit (even though it was selected). Also the resolution was bad. I have a 22" screen, yet I cant get 1680 resolution. It keeps going back to 1280. When I start off, I am in the cockpit... yet everything is completely zoomed in, like I can see only a few dials (altimeter etc) and the quality is not great. The mouse does not work as in you cannot look around. Are there any recos? Reinstall? I have partitioned my hard drive in that windows + programs take up about 90 gigs (C Drive) and D drive is games etc (About 300 gigs). Could this be the problem?\015\012\015\012Would reaally appreciate any help.\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012\015\012Christopher\015

Answers :

Okay, this sounds like a graphics card issue. If it keeps going back to 1280 then your card or monitor cannot support it. The zoom issue can be reset by pressingf the backspace key, then use + or - key to zoom in or out. If the graphics card is not up to it then the Virtual cockpit will have problems displaying.
\015\012To get the mouse working, right-click on the screen and select the mouse option so you can use that to view. Good luck with it.

Screen sizing Unit runs fine and I have restored it using the factory discs back to Win 98. It didn't run very fast with XP in it and some of my old favorite games will not run in XP and this is just the ticket. My problem is that I don't remember enough about Win 98 to get around a small problem. The RAM is maxed out at 180 megs and though the graphics card is capable of 32 bit True Color, every time I adjust it to True Color it resizes the screen and everything shrinks down to about 640 x 480.

Your problem is that the correct video driver is not installed and therefore cannot use all the video RAM.(the XP version of the video driver won't work with Win98).\015\012When you adjust to True color at a higher resolution it drops to a lowe ... PC Laptops
