FPS 800-900 for me

Recommended Posts

Granted I am running a rocket CPU wise but my video card is well not top of the line by any means but FPS are simply AWESOME in this bird now. LCDS are silky smooth.. Anyone notice the changes to a certain stby gauge?????????????? Ah looks great now. Oh this now has the *rolling digits* on the PFD which add that much more to this amazing aircraft simulation! I love it and am sure all of you will feel the same ;-)!http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/72645.jpg[h4]Best Wishes,Randy J.

Would be nice to have separate altimeters also...I mean setting baro from the EFIS shouldn't change the standby alt baro setting...Would be neat! :9

Sorry this wasn't an affirmation... Didn't check in AOM...To be clear... I really thought all alt was separated in this plane also...The only thing I can confirm is that in the real thing, right EFIS sets FO PFD's alt and left EFIS sets captain's one...I also said that because I'm currently beta-testing SSW's A-310 and they implemented 3 separate altimeters with separate setting knobs...Will check in AOM anyway...

If not separated, why standby alt has a baro setting control??The only doc I've found...

Yes, each and every altimeter has its own pressure knob.Be it the fully digital ADC-powered altimeter, where the pressure is set on a control panel, or a fully pneumatic altimeter with a vibrating unit behind it.Left and Right altimeters are also seperated.Regards,Mark

No I would tell you to wait BECAUSE with the pending release of Nvidia's 6800 and ATI's new cards the current prices will drop sharply! As for the 5700 Ultra, it is better than aq ATI 9600XT but not a ATI 9800 PRO. If you are set on getting one sooner and want to stay with Nvidia I would suggest a Gforce 5900XT, for only 20 bucks more (most places) than the price of a 5700 Ultra it is worth it. The 5700 Ultra can clock higher but is limited in the pipes at 128 whereas the 5900XT goes 256 so a better choice..[h4]Best Wishes,Randy J.

Randy, that is correct.Also, setting the Baro on the left EFIS panel has no influence on the right altimeter.On some classics there are a total of 4 altimeters (Capt's altimeter, FO's altimeter, stby altimeter and an altimeter that measures in meters). All four have to be set independently.Regards,Mark

Hello Randy,I have about the same setup AMD 64 3200+, ASUS KV8 Deluxe, ATI 9800 PRO 128 mb, 1 GB Corsair DDR400 ram and 120 GB hard-drive.With the current 600 / 700 I get about 15 - 20 FPS in heavy scenery and 30 when high up in the air.My sliders are all maxed out and I mean All. What are your settings currently that you get 40+ Best regards,Peter
