I am going to assume we are talking FS9, and Movie Making, at which point, I am emailing you the modified Language.dll You will need to backup your original, and replace it with this one. You will find it lurking in the root folder.... NOT the Modules Folder, rename it language.bak, or something similar.
I am going to look through my Fs9 cfg file, and see what changes I made in there, and will post them up here, but in the meantime, the language dll will start to help straght away.
Good luck, any problem, call me back on here, that way others can see if they need to make the same changes, I will also check where I originally located the dll file.
Ok Bruce, found it over at Avsim, you are looking for filename nobrakes.zip
or go here, but its a direct download from avsim, not a link, but it's safe http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=54298
It seems that this file on Avsim was lost during the recent hack, but I did find my orginal download from avsim, and along with the language file, which by now, you should already have, is doc file which I have inserted below.
This is a follow-up to the original NOBRAKES.ZIP Flight Simulator 2004 language.dll file modification, also available in the AVSIM file library. This newer language.dll file mod eliminates a much wider variety of pop-up scroll bar messages than before and is geared toward the group of hardcore, more experienced simmers. Please read the warning further down in this Readme file before installing! Also, please note that this file modification will ONLY work with english language installations of Flight Simulator 2004!
What this FS2004 language.dll modification file does:
Deletes practically all of the pop up scroll bar messages that normally appear in FS2004 including, FLiGHT SIMULATOR PAUSED - PRESS P TO CONTINUE, BRAKES, PARKING BRAKE SET, CRASH, INSTANT REPLAY, STALL, OVERSPEED, MAIN EXIT OPENING/CLOSING, TAILHOOK UP/DOWN, WINGS FOLDING, among others. The flight video pop-up lables such as recording speed, ect, have also been erased completely.
In addition, view labels such as SPOT, COCKPIT, VIRTUAL COCKPIT, and TOWER are also eliminated, including the current zoom value displays.
The SLEW pop-up label is also erased. The numeric values such as latitude/longitude/heading, ect, will still be displayed at the top of the screen. However, you can simply press SHIFT-Z while in Slew mode to cycle through the Slew pop-up displays until the screen is clear. This is great for making dramatic screenshots! The slew pop-up display will remain clear until you switch aircraft and is so very easy to manually get rid of that only a minimum of modification to this particular display has been done.
The Instant Replay pop-up scroll bar has now been eliminated completely, you can now watch those landing replays with a little more fidelity or even make some cool movies without having that irritating label on your playback screen.
All in all, eliminating a host of scroll bar messages from popping up in Flight Simulator 2004 lends a little more fidelity to your simming experience, at least I think so.
WARNING BEFORE INSTALLATION OF THIS FILE MOD:
This file mode shouldn't harm your FS2004 installation or cause any undo behavior. This being said, please be advised that without some of the original pop-up labels displaying anymore, things can be a little disorienting at times until you get used to it. For example, if you inadvertedly pause Flight Simulator you might be tempted to think the program has locked down because you no longer will get the 'Simulation is paused - press P to continue' label. Also, when experiencing a building crash on the ground and not having the 'BUILDING CRASH' label popping up anymore can make FS2004 seem like it's acting a little loopy. Remember that FS2004 will reset the flight after a crash sequence. If you notice FS2004 constantly resetting the flight on the ground with this file mod installed, most likely you are experiencing a building crash sequence. (Hint, look for a wingtip dragging against a nearby hangar or something along those lines). As long as you are cognizant of the potentially disorienting effects of not having some of the particular pop-up labels such as CRASH, STALL, and OVERSPEED, ect, you should do okay. Similarly, if you have an aircraft stress breakup in mid-air you might get a little confused when Flight Simulator simply stops and resets the flight.
As long as you rationalize the situation taking place without a pop-up message intervening, you should do okay.
If the situation really bugs you though, simply use the original NOBRAKES.ZIP file mod (found in the AVSIM libary) for a 'lite' version of language.dll that only eliminates a few of the scroll bar messages. Alternatively, just re-install your original language.dll file to reset Flight Simulator to all normal pop-up messages again. (See installation notes below).
One final caveat: The pull down menu view label at the top of your FS2004 screen will not show the correct view window label with this mod installed. For example, if you are in cockpit view and you access the top pull down view menu, the label will simply show '00', instead of 'COCKPIT'. This is true for all views. This can be a pain if you use the top pull down menu to change views, but if you simply press 'S' like I do you can scroll through views from the keyboard. Also, since the zoom level will no longer appear on the screen when switching views, you can access the top pull-down view/3d view options menu to set this as desired. You can still zoom and unzoom by the +/- keys in the regular window view of course but you won't have the zoom value display to reference. Use the top pull-down view menu to fine tune your zoom level before you flights and you should be fine.
BACK UP THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE.DLL FILE IN YOUR FLIGHT SIMULATOR 2004 ROOT DIRECTORY AND MAKE SURE IT'S IN A SAFE PLACE BEFORE PROCEEDING. Ok, now that you've done that, simply copy the Language.dll file found in this .zip archive into your Flight Simulator 2004 root directory, overwriting the original. That's it! Your done.
To uninstall and restore Flight Simulator 2004 to it's original state replete with pop-up scroll bar messages, simply copy your original language.dll file back into your FS2004 root directory.
Special thanks to Ian Scott for helping me test out this latest mod and making sure it worked smoothly!
