  1. Hello, Please direct your question to the ticket system.
  2. Is the product in your Orbx Direct account?
  3. When one has nothing to say, it is best to say nothing.
  4. Hello. Please read this topic which I made just for that purpose.
  5. Thanks for your reply. I do know what it does and have never understood the sentence "Boost Flight Simulator X loading speed by disabling default flight preloading" If a flight is selected and the spinning aircraft screen left for a few minutes, such as while making a drink, FSX will click straight to the flight. Disabling this function would mean that after the drink was made, the full loading time would start only from the moment that "Fly Now" was clicked. The flight will take a certain amount of time to load and the only change is, as you say, when it takes place.
  6. Actually, I think the correct addition is [GRAPHICS] HIGHMEMFIX=1 I believe this is simply FSX at work, waiting for the necessary processes to complete. If there is something slowing that down, anti-virus checking, a PC bottleneck, lack of resources or whatever else, a re-install into the same environment is unlikely to make any difference. I would be interested in what benefit is gained by DisablePreload=1 I have yet to see a convincing argument in favour but am always willing to learn something new.
  7. Welcome, by the way, the e mail address they are asking for is not theirs but the one associated with your account, if I have correctly understood your post.
  8. Hello and welcome to the forums. It looks like you bought all your products from Orbx Direct, so you have no need to make a licence transfer. You will need FTX Central V3 to install them and that is all covered by this topic.
  9. Hello Bruce, This has been asked many times. Please have a read of this topic and in particular question and answer number 15. Thanks.
  10. Hello, I have activated your account, so you should be able to log in now.
  11. I think you may have misunderstood. If you choose the manual download option on your Orbx Direct product page, you can leave the download running and you can place it in a folder when it is complete. I would agree that a file size notification would be of assistance. If you use a download manager such as the Internet Download Manager, it will tell you the file size at the beginning of the download. Then you can decide whether to proceed or cancel.
  12. The best way is to download the files for one product and before you download another, create a directory named after that product and put the downloaded file into it.
  13. If you have FTX Global base, restore the default textures that you backed up. Open your simulator and delete all the FTX scenery library entries. Go to your simulator root folder and delete the ORBX folder. Go to your C:\Users\Your name\AppData\Local folder and delete the Orbx folder. Depending on what products you have installed, there are other files that can be deleted. None of them will affect your simulator if you leave them.
  14. Hello, No, not yet. I am assured that there will be. Depending on the boxed products you have, this topic might help for now.
  15. Thanks, that is a valid point. In this case. a search for "discount" pulls up the same topic on the first page of results and a search for "senior discount" pulls it up as the first topic after this one. A good number of all the support questions are answered by a simple reference to an existing post or topic.
