Hey guys, have a question

Recommended Posts

Hey PMDG team,I have a quick question. I have been on the simming injured reserve for quite some time but I am finally getting back into it. I am still on FS9 and will be for the foreseeable future. With that being said can someone please give me a little detail on what the 747-X update includes for the FS9 version. I am more than happy to purchase the X version to get the 9 updates I just don't know what they are ;)Thanks in advance,-PaulPrimary RigLiquid CooledIntel C2D E6600 @3.2 gigsAsus P5N32SLI-Plus2 gigs Corsair XMS PC6400 4 4 4 12 @810Dual OC'd XFX 8800GTX @ 2 gigs24 inch Widescreen LCD 16XAA/16XAFDual 19 inch LCD'sRaid-0+1PCPower and Cooling 1k Quad SLIhttp://home.comcast.net/~psolk/3monitorsa.htmlBackup RigAMD 4000 San Diego @ 2.72 Gigs Kingston Corsair XMS CL2XFX 7900 GTX Raid-0psolk.jpg

Copied from the txt file in my PMDG folderCHANGE LIST FOR FS9 VERSION:============================*NOTE: The primary purpose for this update is to give bring some of the fixes and efficiency updates that are native to the FSX 747-400 version. Some of the FSX specific behaviors, such as animations, special effects and certain lighting effects are not present in the FS9 version because they are not native to the FS9 environment. The list below has been modified from the FSX version to include only those updates and behaviors that should reasonably appear within FS9. We have provided this update as a service to those loyal customers who have purchased both products, as we wish you to have the most enjoyment of the PMDG 747-400 product line on both platforms! Thank you for your support!1) Improved takeoff trim display gauge clarity2) Change in Lower EICAS ENG page automatic display logic (only when fuel set to CUTOFF in flight)3) Correction in Spoiler handle position detection logic to improve response and correct control.4) EICAS Target N1 / Ref N1 indications removed when in REV mode5) Reversers logic altered to prevent REV lockout when NAI active.6) Modified Cost Index Equation: The equation is a differential equation solved by successive iterations.7) This is a very CPU intensive operation. The element of the numerical procedure has been optimized, yielding a factor of 5 speed up with minimal effect on result accuracy, thus reducing the required load on the CPU for the mathematics involved.8) CDU Legs page - predicted Alt Improvements: Above / Below type (e.g. 6000A8000B) soft constraint both vertical flight path prediction and VNAV mode bug corrections and predictive improvements. Also UNABLE NEXT ALT message will appear in all cases referring to soft altitude constraints.9) CDU N1 page - flight phase improvements: Regular thrust limit page (instead of TO limit page) will appear now below flap retraction altitude.10) CDU Fix page - changes to RAD/DIS to be BRG/DIS11) CDU Cruise page - change in step alt code: At 2R the last step altitude target would not appear when step climb was not possible. It does now above the NONE header.12) FMC: Various small and large behavior corrections.13) GA thrust limit will automatically be set now only if ToD is sequenced and flaps are out (or GS is captured as before)14) Retuned the entire pitch channel of the autopilot specifically to enhance behavior.15) This includes all related pitch modes (VS, FLCH etc). The main target was to improve mode stability even at high simrates and in connection to idiosyncratic FS9 "real" weather handling. The pitch channel in some places was enhanced with a secondary control routine to improve effectiveness in pitch sensitive roles such as glide slope tracking.16) Various cosmetic changes to CDU display and text handling.17) Adaptive refresh rate control for CRTs / LCDs based on target and actual frame rate (order is PFD, ND, EICAS, standby instruments)18) Numerous performance optimizations of display and computational code to reduce processor load on FS9.19) Various other assorted minor fixes along the way.20) Improved wing flex and wing flight path distortion modeling.

Disregard, I downloaded and answered my own questions...Thanks,-PaulPrimary RigLiquid CooledIntel C2D E6600 @3.2 gigsAsus P5N32SLI-Plus2 gigs Corsair XMS PC6400 4 4 4 12 @810Dual OC'd XFX 8800GTX @ 2 gigs24 inch Widescreen LCD 16XAA/16XAFDual 19 inch LCD'sRaid-0+1PCPower and Cooling 1k Quad SLIhttp://home.comcast.net/~psolk/3monitorsa.htmlBackup RigAMD 4000 San Diego @ 2.72 Gigs Kingston Corsair XMS CL2XFX 7900 GTX Raid-0psolk.jpg
