Black Screen when loading FSX

Postby ShoeStrings42 » Sun Nov 12, 2017 2:26 pm

When i launch flyinside fsx everything is normal on the first screen where it tells you to welcome to flyinside, once i get to the next screen where it says "waiting for simulator" on the left and the game would be on the right, my screen is black with grey lines going thru it. I have noticed the game launches on my 2nd monitor so when i click and drag it to the 1st monitor the grey lines start to turn colors but when i release the window to the game it automatically snaps back to the 2nd monitor. I have this same problem with xp11 but that game allows me to drag the xp11 window to the first monitor and it stays there and fixes my problem. im sure this has to be a easy fix. Thanks

I'm also just getting a black FSX screen: -
Click on "Flyinside" icon (tried using "run as administrator")
This brings up the standard FSX start screen I recognise.
So set up my flight as normal : -
Aircraft = Extra 300 (one of the default aircraft), Airfield = EGCJ, Time & day 25/10/2018 /daytime, Weather = Clear skys
Click on "Fly now"
Standard progress bar as FSX loads, however the black screen never clears to the cockpit view, but moving the mouse cursor around does bring up the various "tool-tips" normally found on the instrument panel.

I'm using FSX (boxed) Gold edition with SP1 and SP2.
brand new computer (bought for use with VR): -

I seem to be having the same problem, bought New computer (complete with Vive headset), got it running and FSX installed and running (FSX gold edition plus SP1 and SP2).
Few days (Wed 24/10/18) ago bought "Flyinside" for FSX.
Installed, and it seems to open FSX OK, i.e. clicking on the Flyinside icon opens the normal FSX "splash screen", then after the normal wait the FSX home screen.
Set up a flight, aircraft - my standard aircraft; time and date - daytime, today (or rather yesterday when yesterday was "today*!); Location - EGCJ; Weather - clear skys.
Click on "Fly now" - get the standard "black screen" and the loading progress bar.
So far everything normal as I recognise it for FSX, but now: -
when the loading reaches 100% the FSX screen remains black, and in the Vive headset I see a "compass grid" on the floor and a blue square with three "winking" white bars. (Sometimes - and I don't know what I do to get it - I see the black FSX screen, and a "Waiting for FSX" screen in the headset instead of the blue square.)
I've tried: -
a) running "Flyinside" as "Administrator"
b) choosing a default aircraft (Cessna 172)
Plus of course I've tried rebooting my computer!

Any help/advice gratefully received,
