  1. That would be confirmation that it requires a subscription, $9.99 or possibly $14.99 per month. Strange, I don't see this on the www.flightsimulator.com web site. When I did this Google search: site:flightsimulator.com "Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming to Windows 10 with Xbox Game Pass in 2020, and coming to Xbox One at a later date." It also did not find this. This seems to come from the E3 last year. That statement also does not say "exclusively with game pass" and Jorg Neumann, the head at MS for MSFS2020, has said before that it can also be bought outright. How they will do it w/o a subscription, who knows. The only thin confirmed seems to be that one option to have access to the "game" is through the game pass.
  2. If you want more M.2 NVMe drives, there are PCIe cards that take like 4 M.2 NVMe devices. Cheers, Siggy
  3. Thank you, yes, that answers my question. (I did a search for "FSX reinstall" but should have searched for "FTX re-install" instead it seems)
  4. I need to reinstall FSX (due to moving from W7 -> W10). Is there a way to avoid having to re-download my ORBX products? I could rename the FSX directory and let the FSX installer under W10 install to the original path and then later rename the old FSX directory back. Would this be sufficient for my ORBX products to still work (also need to copy scenery.cfg or the entire folder under <drive>:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX). I would like to avoid the re-download as it is very time consuming and uses up a lot of my data allowance.
  5. Will KBUR include the Portal of the Folded Wings Shrine to Aviation that Capt. Dale Black hit and survived? (He had a near-death experience due to this accident). Cheers, Siggy
  6. Hi, Ages ago, when I bought the FTX AU SP3 DVD, it included a bonus copy of YSCH. Now that my copy of FTX AU is at SP4, should YSCH be shown as "owned/installable" in FTX Central 3? Cheers, Siggy
  7. Wow! It would be nice if Austria would be covered next.
  8. This looks great! Will we see any screen shots about 200km WNW of Munich? (I.e. Stuttgart, Black Forest, etc.)? Cheers, Siggy
  9. Gooday Jarrad, thank you, it worked, no problem. With FSX default, Austria Pro X and ORBX LOWI in place, it is difficult to know where possible transitions come from, but I have not seen anything terrible :-), but only did a short flight from LOWI to EDNY (Friedrichshafen/Lake Constance). In the end we will have ORBX Germany South joining the LOWI area and at least the northern border of the LOWI area will have a perfect transition. Cheers, Siggy
  10. Hi, In a post a few pages above, it is stated, that the scenery blends with either FTX Global Base or OpenLC EU. I have none of these, could I still install/use this scenery, even though the transitions may look a little bit sub-optimal :-) ? I have the old "Austria Professional X" (not photo-realistic) installed as my 'base'. Cheers, Siggy
  11. Had the same problem today too with GEN. It would be nicer if FTX Central checked whether there is enough extra space first instead of presenting an exception handler chain (I saved the screenshots if anyone is interested, but this should be easy to reproduce). Cheers, Siggy
  12. Will this setup work (it does with the current installers) ? Please note that \ProgramData is on D: d:\Users\Siggy>set ALLUSERSPROFILE=d:\ProgramData ProgramData=d:\ProgramData SystemDrive=C: SystemRoot=C:\Windows Cheers, Siggy
  13. Looks fantastic! Are any of the trains moving? That would contribute quite a bit to immersion. My current LOWI scenery has that and it is nice to see "live on the rail tracks" too. Siggy
