  • I am very sorry, but I get a little confused as to who is Jeff and who isn't. My fault entirely. Anyway. I can't remember exactly but some months ago I posted a problem. When I completed my flight plan and went to fly, My screen came up with the last time I flew and the plane in the air. I am sure you replied as your answer corrected the problem immediately. A guess, but I think it was something like doing an integrity check. I have forgotten what I did to complete this integrity check if this is what it was.
    Many thanks,
    Jim/Taranakian. I did put in a post on this a few days ago and received a reply from one of the group, but it wasn't what I was instructed to do last time.
  • That's twice now you've deleted a thread which has my general comments in because of what reason? Answer - because you can and it gets noted by MANY others. You do yourself NO favors ultimately.
    • Threads like that one are not doing anyone any good. We need to make our forums friendly for any new users coming on to seek answers. Having threads like the one I deleted on there only confuses them. We will always delete any threads that have no value for new users and that are basically only subjective, opinionated remarks.
    • Thanks for making your action clear to me. You may not appreciate that subjective actually means opinionated and opinion is always required for discussion. I don't take personally my opinion being censored as I know you mean well. The fact that a group called Discussion cannot have opinions that may differ from yours is, however in your power alone. Good luck.
    • What most users don't quite understand. We receive many complaints from new users directly that the forums are too confusing and too many more established users always jump over their responses with very complicated answers before we get a chance to answer more properly. Personally, even though I do most of the responses from the team I'm also a core developer that has 100 other more important things to do than to mediate forum threads so I simply just delete threads that don't fit our strategy. It's not personal, the thread is just a thread to me as I don't pay attention to who writes it.

      Also, the forum also contributes to a mere 0.3% of the users that own Aerofly.

  • Hi Jeff,
    When will shadow support for cultivation buildings be fixed?
  • Greets from the West coast"L.A." So Cal Question,was this update ONLY for pc or was mobile included? Reason is I had to re-aply the FS2 app do to problems on the tablet that I used at that time. In doing so no new update was shown after re storing my prior aircraft that bought which was all of them. Can you help in this matter? Thx
  • Hello, sorry I write you directly on the pin board, but I think you know you very well with aerosol fs2. since 23.02.18 my game does not start anymore (update VR-Hands) i use win 10, AMD Radeon HD 8570D.
    Graphics card and pc are up to date. It comes on the screen always only main executabke does not work anymore. I have already deleted the main file, as already described. Do you have an idea what I can do, I can not remember anything ....

    many greetings mirko
    • Does your computer have both an embedded and stand-alone graphics card? Make sure that you have Aerofly forced to use the stand-alone card and NOT the embedded one. Aerofly will crash if you are not using the stand-alone card. Make sure you check the graphics card control panel for this.

      I should know Aerofly well, I'm a developer for IPACS.
    • Thanks for the info, I will check it.
      maybe you could also take a look at the tm.log file?

    • It looks like you may have corrupt files. Please try to run the Steam file integrity check by right clicking Aerofly in Steam and go into local files. Let the file integrity check and replace any files. This may take some time to complete.

      Then when finished, try to delete the main.mcf file located in your documents\Aerofly FS 2 folder and rerun Aerofly without any joysticks plugged in. Let me know if the crashing stops.

    • Thank you for your idea, I did it that way! A friend had told me to reset the FS2 to its factory settings. After that I could start the game again! Also the start with connected joystick worked!

      I can fly again !!!

      Thank you for your time and many greetings!
  • The problem with the blurred, failed screen has been solved, now the fs2 aerofly opens normally, but it stays frame by frame, does not run smoothly as before, seems to give only 4 to 6 frames ... can anyone help me?
    my video card is a Radeon R9-200 and the Radeon Adrenalin software is the 18.2.1, the most updated !!
  • Hello, I'm sorry if I'm in the wrong place, I just want to know where I can put a problem with my Aerofly FS2 so that someone can help me solve the problem ... because my main screen of the Aerofly Fs2 opens full of errors, with parts erased and strange symbols ... Well sorry for anything and a big hug.
    • Normally you can just post to the forum but in your case your problem sounds like you need to update your video card drivers to the latest version. Try that first. If it doesn't resolve your problem I may need to see your TM log.
    • Thank you very much for your consideration! I should send the file to your email, is that it?
    • You can send it directly to me at drhotwing1@aol.com
    • Thank you very much for your consideration! Here's the file ... I'm really grateful for your attention right away, okay?
    • I recieved your file. Give us a little but to review things to see what's going on.
