How Is The FS9 Update Working For Those Who Have It?

Recommended Posts

As part of the FSX purchase, but not necessarily install of FSX. I'm gonna eat some crow and purchsase the 747X, provided no real issues are being reported by anyone who uses it in FS9. I do not run FSX and may not for a while.

For me, the FS9 Upgrade is working great. I don't get CTDs flying into LHR anymore! Overall, the aircraft does operate smoother than before. There are also a few FMC pages that are slightly different. If you use FS2Crew, you have to reinstall it but it took me maybe 5 minutes. The only issue I have is that my TCAS only shows conflicting traffic and I can't get it to show all traffic. I posted asking for help but no solutions have been presented yet.Ryan GamurotLucky to live Hawai'ihttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa296.png

The FS9 747 is simply superb. I think it is smoother and does not suffer the same frame rate drops when turning onto EGKK approach that it used to. Running everything maxed makes for a great experience.I have noticed a persistent problem with the autobrakes disarming on touchdown. My pedals have a wide deadband so they are not the cause so maybe it is the throttles although they have a deadband too. I don't recall this occuring before the update. Maybe it is the latest FSUIPC. I enjoy flying it too much to be bothered to investigate at the moment. I see this is mentioned below for the FSX version but I have not flown that much.

Someone else mentioned this TCAS problem too, but I thought they said it was only the FSX version?? Wonder what the deal is? You tried to route the TCAS through FS Internal and FSUIPC?

I think the FSX TCAS problem was that it didn't show anything. For me, I can only see anything conflicting. I also tried both FS internal and FSUIPC. No matter what, I can't get it to show all traffic and for some strange reason, disable the limit on the amount of traffic shown.Ryan GamurotLucky to live Hawai'ihttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa296.png

And this is in FS9, not FSX? Or both? I wonder if no one else seems to notice? I usually just have it set to conflicting traffic myself, but sometimes I do like to show all. Do you save older FSUIPC DLLs to try a previous version? I want to know for sure that the update won't hurt the overall plane so it's worth it to buy, especially when I won't be using FSX for a long time.

This is only FS9 as I too don't use FSX yet. But I highly doubt it FSUIPC because there hasn't been a new non-beta release since June 1st and that's the one I use. It's worked up until I installed the upgrade. Other than that, you will still get traffic alerts and be able to see conflicting traffic. And other than that, there are absolutely no problems that I've had.Ryan GamurotLucky to live Hawai'ihttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa296.png

Strange, and too bad it might not be fixed. I don't have FSX installed, so maybe I'll wait a while to see if it gets fixed for FS9, even though they said no more 747 updates. :|

Me to. I have just done a KPAE to KSFO and the TCAS only displayed conflicting traffic. Quite unrealistic.Neil Bradley
