Couple Questions :)

Recommended Posts

After a month of owning, flying, learning, and crashing the PMDG 737 I have a couple questions :-lol1) VC Co-pilot Call outsFor some reason in the VC I do not hear the altitude and Vspeed call outs. I found this the hard way. I was taking off with the VC for the first time, with the FMC programmed with the Vspeeds. I started my roll, got down 3/4ths of the runway and I still had not heard 80 KTS. I look down and I'm at 160! By then I had ran off the end of the runway and my gear collapsed.2) Upgrade PerformanceI see on the PMDG site it says the new upgrade to the 800/900 package will make increase your FPS in the older and new models. If so, for those of you that upgraded, how big of a FPS leap did you see? I'm really interested in the VC.Any help would be appreciated,JK

I'm really interested in the VC.JK,I found the VC went from pretty much eye candy that I looked at (and suffered because my beast didn't like the VC), to using the VC as my primary cockpit. And this is on an AMD 2000+, with UT AI at 100%, ect ect. IOW, the FPS increased dramatically. 2D also became smoother, just not as noticable.

utilization of the VC with the new upgrade reduce my framerates between 52-55%, thus I am unable make any use of any of the improved VC components.However, using the same test situation, prior to this I was seeing reductions between 67-69% in the orginal release. Therefore, one can say there is some improvement.The 17 minutes test is run over a very specific course with all settings the same (no clouds or AI).FYI
