  1. Past hour
  2. XP when I want the knobs and switches to work........MSFS for the VFR view. Must try that helo!
  3. Nice shots.....a bit tricky squeezing between the peaks and the clouds!
  4. I agree with most of what you said above, though I think Xplane isn't as far behind as people think, the hardest part in Xplane would be for them to fix the clouds. It really shouldn't be too bad for them to improve the trees and water, that is not too complicated. The problem will always be a lack of aerial imagery with Xplane (or having to download it manually constantly), as the quality of NAIP can only go so far. There is some decent scenery in Xplane though, but the environmental washed out lighting of Xplane is a constant issue, whereas in MSFS you can just adjust the day/night slider and it can fix the contrast of wherever you are flying. There are also other issues with Xplane, like a lack of really great performing turboprops, unless you want to pay $40 to $80 per plane (the best planes in Xplane are quite expensive). Xplane is still not bad, but it's very expensive to get the best experience out of it.
  5. Maybe just the dust filters full and the system get´s hot. Dan
  6. I have found this one: So there will be some sales going on. I think, I will risk it, even loosing the discount on the boxed version. Maybe I will try to get the game pass for another 3 months for 1$. I have no idea if that will work, since I already used that, but I will try until I get a solid version of it.
  7. thank you danbaz. I do need to make the mcdu as bright as possible; for my optical character recognition software to read it; I'm able to read just a few text from it! I do need help with another thing as well; If possible can anyone describe the approach page of the MCDU? I need to make a script so that MCE can activate the approach phase and write the decision height for me
  8. You could wait for the Summer Sale but I will be very surprised if this game goes on sale. If it does not I'll say without hesitation that $24 extra is worth it for not having the pain of needing the DVD in the drive. The things scratch easy, and you could misplace it. Of course if you're careful its doable using the boxed version but one less hassle if you get it on Steam.
  9. Do you remember time when the payware aircrafts looked better than the deafult ones?
  10. I just thought I'd update anyone who may be in the same situation as me. The Elite sim works nicely with Trainer version 6.50.1. So I installed this version and both my RXP and Elite software are all living happily ever after with no tweaks, hacks etc. I can now load up my real databases and flight charts into both, so the world is good 🙂
  11. Today
  12. Thanks for advise. Good idea. Obviously they sell steam gift cards. However, MSFS on Steam costs 119$. So I had to pay 69$ like 24$ more than compared to the discounted retail boxed version. Of course I could than wait, until Steam is on sale, however, nobody know when that will happen.
  13. I did ! need to go back in the Caribbean ! There is something to say for singles 😃. This is the only thing I didn’t like in the T-Duke, the two big turbines blocking the side views.
  14. Does the store sell Steam Gift Cards? If so drop the $50 on that then use it to get Premium Deluxe on Steam with the remaining $45 from your credit card.
  15. What about a marshaller mod? It would be a way to use the Reverb G2 controllers 🙂
  16. I agree with you. It was only a short math just to be aware that world wide mesh would be 500 times more than NZ mesh. Of course, prize and size won't be linear.
  17. Maxed out, not used. One thread only is maxed out, the other 19 (in my case) are used at 10-25%. The thread which is maxed out acts as a bottleneck. This bottleneck limits the performance to less than 30 fps in the most demanding situations, whereas for conventional games, if you put them in CPU limited situations they deliver 2-300 fps. That's why dynamic resolution scaling would have a limited benefit for MSFS.
  18. I just bought this Top Rudder 103 STOL today after watching a video review yesterday. I took it out for a spin in my old high school stomping grounds back in Texas and had a great time with it! Set it down at the old fishing pond we used to camp over night at and on the football field of my old high school. Was a lot of fun for low and slow flying. Not so much if you need to cover a lot of real estate in a short amount of time.
  19. Thanks. Clouds are not always good to see but when they are the skyscapes are the best than in any sim I ever had. The flight was a delight.
  20. I am not sure how elaborate the DRM on the DVD is, but I would assume that it works.
  21. Hi, how do I assign a camera definition found in an aircraft's aircraft.cfg file to a joystick button in P3Dv4? Thank you. For example: pressing joystick button 1 (the trigger button) will bring up this view. CameraDefinition.0] Title = "Right Wing" Guid = {cda65811-9e4b-4492-a466-c7148f0aaac3} Description = View from the right wing tip looking at the cockpit Origin = Center SnapPbhAdjust = Swivel SnapPbhReturn = FALSE PanPbhAdjust = Swivel PanPbhReturn = FALSE Track = None ShowAxis = FALSE AllowZoom = TRUE InitialZoom = 1.0 ShowWeather = Yes InitialXyz = 10.0, 1.0, 0 InitialPbh = 5, 0, 270 XyzAdjust = TRUE Category=Aircraft ClipMode=Minimum
  22. word not allowed. I don't know how to proceed. I have a coupon for a local retail store valued 50 bucks. MSFS Premium Deluxe is sold for 99 bucks. So I had to pay only 45 bucks, for the Premium Deluxe version. However, it's boxed so I had to insert the word not allowed disc all the time, which I don't want. I don't even have a bluray player right now, so I only could use the download key for downloading the software from the ms store. Furthermore, I would prefer the steam version I guess, since it's better (not ideal) for privacy. Any suggestions?
  23. What about creating a ISO of the DVD, would I still need to insert it for verification?
  24. Funny thing about the 103 is that I'm having better luck landing it at top speed - which is only about 53 kts. 🤣
  25. I think taking a fresh look at everything in a new platform like MSFS is always good. Yes, currently the native implementation has some shortcomings when compared with the GTN Trainer based one but, for me, it is more probable that we get the missing features with this enthusiast-led initiative, than Navigraph charts and data, WX radar and METAR on the RXP version.
