  1. I think you maybe slightly confused.this is a texture upgrade to all airports worldwide.Buildings vehicles and jetways .they do release single airports ,but so far only one has emerged which was KSLC these are called Enhanced airports,and they get a full makeover.it's also due an update to sort out a few missing building texture problems.nothing drastic. hope this helps steve
  2. Dan you could just check the weather conditions for the area you want to fly in and use Weather Architect to create the weather in your sim.No loading of online weather as you fly.and it would be the same without the weather engine running in the background. just an idea. steve
  3. Hi mate Do you have FSX installed outside of the program files?? ie C:\FSX. having it installed using program files path can cause security issues.also applies to REX products. steve
  4. Hi mate can't find anything specific ,only thing i can find is a windows office install that failed because of the same error.looks like a windows 8.1/microsoft problem. steve
  5. The soft clouds are a standalone product for the time being. The idea is to intergate them into REX 4 texture Direct in the not too distant future. so to install them just point them to your FSX installation,pick the set you like and away you go. If you have a good machine ,choose the 32 bit set. should add that if you are prone to wetting yourself while flying through clouds in FSX,i would invest in a Watercooling kit for your CPU.that way you can overclock to 6GHZ and keep yourself dry steve
  6. As far as i know it's a prepar3d problem.there is a fix using some text from a previous version by Rob ainscough,although i read somewhere that it causes other problems. as version 2.5 is due in january i'm going to wait and see if they fix it properly.if not i'll have a little fiddle no doubt. all i can say denis is that you are not alone and it is quite a common problem.nothing to do with the soft clouds as i've seen this before i installed them. best wishes steve
  7. Hi mate easily solved.but you need to be verified before i can help you. steve
  8. could i suggest setting cloud density to max as well.just did that myself and the results are incredible. i wouldn't have believed moving up one notch could make such a difference. If like tim says the weather dictates it you will have proper overcast at this setting.just been trying it and you cannot see the ground at all. steve
  9. Hi Reed. Here you go http://imageshack.com/a/img33/2654/lzx4.png http://imageshack.com/a/img41/7607/y3uo.png I've tried raising and lowering every slider .only one that does anything is texture resolution.that just makes the lines fatter of thinner depending which way you go. thanks steve
  10. Hi Galen No not the light..thats from helicopter..it's the Straight lines that form a grid...the helicopter is over water and that's what my water looks like at night. cheers steve
  11. Hi Reed Just wanted to let you know this has nothing to do with REX Ess or REX4.i just installed a basic copy of FSX without SP1 or Acc and the lines are still there. it's a strange problem because the bigger the texture resolution the fatter and bigger the lines get.i'll try and post a photo thanks steve http://imageshack.com/a/img22/6623/mcgl.png
  12. Hi I have a problem with my night time water textures.I'm using REX4 with ORBX NCA,PNW. During the day they look fantastic..night time the water has a black grid on it made up of thin lines.trying to put a photo up.. hope you don't mind me posting here as i'm pretty sure this isn't a REX problem.just wondered if anyone had been through the same thing and solved it. thanks for any help steve
  13. Tim thanks mate.No problem at all. I'm a fiddler if you know what i mean.can't leave things alone take care steve
  14. hi all is there a way to slow down the loading of the Live weather update . seems to start every two minutes or so and clouds disappear and new weather is injected.. I've tried different settings ,still no change.i'm using WXPlus mode so maybe you can't change that setting,thought i'd ask though in case i missed something. thanks for any ideas steve
  15. Hi kees because i don't drink alcohol i'm on a whole different level to drunk people,i just find them really funny it's been a while and REXE seems to be working really well after Tims suggestion.this can be marked as resolved take care kees steve
  16. Hi tim yes this can marked as resolved i think. I have another dll error which DX9 related,thats my problem though..so far REXE is stable starting with the right click and using admin rights . the drunks were a husband and wife whos cab had driven off just before i arrived.they wouldn't believe i wasn't there cab,and just got in the back of my car. i told em ,I'm not a cab,they said "Yesh you are" and slumped back in the seats.luckily my daughter came out so we took them home.."Thanksshhh a lot cabbie" the wife said and off they went. my daughter was on the floor laughing her head off turns out they were her best friends aunt and uncle.. you couldn't make this up eh. take care steve
  17. Hi Kees Yes FSX runs without REX,if hadn't noticed the Rexe weather bar didn't show,you would never know that rexe wasn't working. Tim been there ,done that.just had to pick my daughter up from a party at 1am.2 drunks come out and jump in the back of my car.they think i'm a CAB!!.in the end i drove them home (it was quicker than arguing).. I have the properties of the REX shortcut set to run as administrator. Just tried it by right clicking the shortcut as you suggested Tim and it seems to work that way.i thought by setting the properties to administrator it would do it automatically.hopefully thats all it is. thanks to both of you(Tim get some earplugs ) steve
  18. Hi Tim I was just thinking ..what are you doing up at this time of the night..It's nearly 2am here.you must be quite a few hours behind in the U S:-).

  19. hi just had to do a complete reinstall of windows 7 64 .fully updated with Sp1. with FSX SP2 acceleration. i'm running it on a Intel I5 oc'd to 4.6 16mb of 1600 ram Ati 6870 video card latest drivers since reinstalling REX essential version 31.2012.1028 . As soon as i use the FLY NOW button and FSx starts.REX stops working .a white box appears to say that REX has stopped working.I have reinstalled twice just to make sure,it is also setup to run as admin. the faulting module is MSJet40.dll.never heard or seen that one before.;-). any ideas would be appreciated. thanks steve-0
  20. only in display section.. also there is a small program called TML..this stops it being changed by fsx. google TML for FSX steve-0
  21. Hi kees . I'll try and get a screen shot. I've had it switched off because of it,i was sure it was a known issue.it can only be seen from an outside view.think it was topdown.. thanks kees steve-0
  22. sorry kees .yes thats the one. steve-0
  23. hi could you tell me if you have managed to solve the issue where you see a small layer of cloud below your aircraft if you have realistic fog layer enabled.it sort of follows you along. I did check the fixes and couldn't see anything about it.and maybe it is unsolvable. thanks steve-0
  24. kees i think he gets the same problem as me sometimes. after rexe has loaded sometimes i just have a few clouds .if i right click on the weather radar and reload the weather ,then i get the full weather showing.doesn't happen all the time and doesn't bother me to have to reload the weather I think this issue has been fixed in sp1 so it's all good. steve-0 jared please bear in mind it does take a while for the weather to load ,also you must wait until it is fully loaded in the REXE start up page. the Weather engine must finish and the interpolation must finish as well .after that click on the FLY NOW button and FSX should start i use Accufeel . If i want to access Accufeel i minimise fsx then use the menu bar to open it.do want i want, then maximise fsx again.
  25. Hi In the REXE interface / Weather Engine .make sure you have enabled 1.REX Weather engine.2. AUTOSTART the REX weather engine and 3.autostart FSX yes its user defined weather setting in fsx if you are not seeing the weather you should. Minimise FSX right click on the edge of the weather radar and click on load weather go back into fullscreen in fsx and the weather will reload and you should see what you are expecting to see IE storms or rain or overcast. heres a link to the upcoming patch which will fix all known problems as far as i know. http://www.realenvir...essential-plus/ as for you not seeing new ground textures ..i've only ever used GEX.so not sure about fsscene steve-0
