Hello all,

some of you might know that ive re-installed FS9,
but im not tired of flying without and clouds, storms, winds ect..
When i set up a flight and select 'real world'
the FPS drop, and the gauges (speed and alt) bounce around,
while im sitting at the gate, when im in the air flying through this,
the speed will show (000) and the Autopilot will use full throttle.

Any help? I dont think its my specs, and the computer was more
or less custom built for FS and other games.

thank you for your time ^^

Does this also happen when you are flying with a default Weather theme... i.e. without selecting Real-world weather?

That is to be expected... make sense?

Anyway, if you happen to run Windows XP, go to 'My Documents' and delete the 'Flight Simulator Files' folder. Don't worry, you won't do any harm. If you're running a different OS such as Vista or W7 you'll just have to find that folder and delete it.

Also, in case you are using flight controls with a standalone throttle, make sure that all the sliders and buttons are properly calibrated or at least in default position.

thanks, but ive tried that before, + all the controls are fine.
could it be the graphics card? or something?

ive only just re-installed FS9, and havnt done more than 5 flights on it.
the first flight (after re-install) the weather was still playing up.
i just want to be able to fly through clouds, rain, snow, wind ect ect..
not just blue empty skies.

Does this happen with all aircraft or just certain ones?

This is a long shot but just wondering are your realism settings set to full? Are you turning the "Pitot Heat" on in the cockpit as if this is not on and your weather themes are set to full or real world no "pitot heat" or blocked pitot tube as you climb can cause some strange things to happen!

Probably not your problem but i can't think of anything else !
