How to install the machine and fs from scratch???
« on: December 26, 2013, 11:44:32 pm »
Many wonder how this is done and here you get my good tips in the form of a small guide ....

Everything is of course at your own risk
--------------------------------

1 Install Windows

- Recommend the following setup seen that you have either a disk or two

- A disk scenario: Pratisjoner two discs third in size format.

- Two disk scenario: Partition Disk 1 installation and 2 when you finish installing Windows

2 Install Windows XP on Disk 1 ca minimum of 50GB if you have one disc or all if you have multiple disks

-------------------------------------------------- -------------------

 - 1 disk partitioned with Windows C : \ \ and FS2004 D : \ \ in the ratio 1/3

Ie you have a disk 200GB 80GB should be the Windows and 115 - 120GB be FS2004

 - 2 disc will not partitioned but have Windows c : \ \ and FS2004 d : \ \


-------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------

Then do the following ( * ) means installed

1 Windows XP *

2 All necessary drivers to motherboard
- Chipset
- Network
- Sound
- ETC .

3 Install necessary program such as WinZip or Winrar and software that is necessary for further applications (eg Deammon Tools )

4 Install Anti - Virus and run the test ( normally occurs during installation )

5 Run Windows Update and Validation

- Remembering the rule here is that you MUST run all plug installations first completely finished, run the custom to completion .

Final update the installation of . NET Framework ( Version 1.0 to 1.1 - 2.0) is minimum but I do not recommend such a long time to install the 3.0 version.

Remember to include ALL SERVICE PACKS FOR . NET FRAMEWORK

6 Download and Install Microsoft DirectX drivers
 
7 Download all the necessary updates to Motherboard , sound card , etc. .


When all this is installed and everything looks good I recommend the following ....

INSTALL A BACKUP PROGRAM AND CREATE AN IMAGE OF YOUR HARD DRIVE SO THAT MAY BE RE- ALIGNMENT FORT AND FRESH .

Save imagen on DVD or CD with boot start options enabled. ( BootCD )

So the most important and latest .........

8 Install video drivers

- Memory aid here is as follows sideways and best driver ( ATI )

* Drivers are best 2 rose after the release card .

This means that for example the ATI card came out about the same time as the 8.6 ATI drivers. So probably the first driver to your card be 6.09 or 6.10

Then choose any two steps after thus runs 6:11 or 6:12

* Do you have a brand new card - install the drivers that birds with CD or newest online available


Done
-------------------------------------------------- ------------
 
Then format the windows disk 2 if you have two seperate disks or partition 2 if you have only one disk ....

Remember clean format NTFS and not quick format - very important

-------------------------------------------------- -----------

So installation of FS ( based on FS2004 )

1 Install FS2004 4 files / cds *

- Do you now disk 1 /2 partitions then install FS9 on partition 2 ie D : \ \
- You now have 2 disks then install FS9 on disk 2 ie D : \ \

2 Install FS2004 update 9.1 ( SP1 ) *

3 Start FS and set options as desired ( http://www.tknudsen.com/download.htm - Tom Knudsen Guides )

4 , while FS is running go into the scenery library and delete all Photoscenery from the list .... You will not have to tick away places you do not need or fly to eg Austraila or Oceanic etc. .

Do you have a bad machine with low FPS threshold - Also remove all the places you do not normally fly to

This allows the FS uses less resources by loading the world with a one time only when you fly in Norway .

5 Exit FS

6 Open Explorer and go into disk or partition 2 2 ie D : \ \ where you installed FS9 aircraft folder and find

normally

D : \ \ program files \ \ microsoft games \ \ flight simulator 9 \ \ aircraft

7 Delete all flymapper you do not want to have installed , ie all except the following aircraft

- Cessna
- Boeing
- Learjet
- Helicopter
- Beechcraft

The folder fsfsconv , default and templates should be there

8 Skip to main FS2004 folder

D : \ \ program files \ \ microsoft games \ \ flight simulator 9 \ \

Do you have a new and good video card and it is NOT listed in

Display.cfg

Delete the entire file - this will give more FPS for FS will then use fs9.cfg to check video card.


9 Do you want to change something in the settings in fs for tweaking done in FS9.cfg and it can be found here

START - RUN and type kommandonen

% appdata % \ \ Microsoft \ \ FS9 \ \




Done ...

My recommendation beyond this will only addon and order of the

0 Install FSUIPC - VERY IMPORTANT AND HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION

1 Install FS Global for FS9

- This provides terrain data around the globe and works very well in Norway as in Zimbabwe

2 Install Ground Environment PRO
 Remember that follow Ground Environment Merge Guide 2006
http://www.tknudsen.com/download.htm

3 Install Active Sky 6.0
- Install update 6.5 ( optional if not the latest version )

RUN ALL UPDATES

ps follow Active Sky Realism Guide from the same place over hehe

4 Install Active Camera or IDGfly Walk and Follow
- Flavor comfortable really, I'm happiest with Active Camera

REMEMBER TO INSTALL ON NOT THE SAME DISK OR PARTITION TO FS9

5 Install Real Environment PRO

6 Install addons aircraft and scenery

- PMDG - Precision Manuals Development Group
- 737PIC - Pilot in Command by Wilco
- Cerenado

etc. ..


Scenery of Norway and


1 Create a folder on your disk or partition 2 2 ie D : \ \ called MY ADDONS OR ONLY ADDONS

2 Install Norway Airports update 1.4

Download AFCAD files (both ) and unzip and copy the folder

D : \ \ program files \ \ microsoft games \ \ flight simulator 9 \ \ Addon Scenery \ \ scenery

3 Install Norway Mesh ( Whether or if you have FS Global - install NQM should delete the files in FSGlobal that has to do with Norway . Standing in the manual )


4 Install Norway Scenic

5 Install Norway Roads

6 Install Norway Bridges

7 Install Norway Cities

8 Download and install text unclean FS Sognefjord by Lennart Arvidsson
Located on File Library


In the ADDONS folder should now look like this

ADDONS
      |
      Norway_Airports
      Norway Mesh
      Norway Scenic
      Norway Roads
      Norway Cities
      Norway Bridges

Order does not matter ..

9 Start FS2004 and then add them to the scenery library to look like eventually ..


1 is the highest priority ( So on top )

1 Norway Airports
2 Addon Scenery
3 Norway Cities
4 Norway Bridges
5 Norway Roads
6 Norway Scenic
7 Norway Mesh
8 FSGlobal Mesh

So be installed scenery beyond that is entered in the following order

2-3 = Airports
5-6 = Photo scenery
6-7 = Landclasses
7-8 = Mesh


So it's finally just pick and choose the addons but remember the following rule




Install it using the machine and can withstand


Finally , good luck and remember

The machine works best at

Zero installation

Mesh
country Class
