That simply can't be! That type of smoothness doesn't exist in FS9 or FSX. If the crew at AirlinerXP indeed are releasing this type of gauge accuracy then I am at a loss for words!This would be the first title that I would actually pay to preorder. And if just 70% of the things they are saying about their Airbus is true, this is destined to be the most groundbreaking aircraft release for the FS franchise.It could also mean that the other 3 following Airbuses will see no sales and Wilco's 'bus will be a case of life imitating art as their sales go sailing into the trees as did the Air France A320 at the 1998 airshow.

>PMDG Queen is about the sameNah- not even close, at least on my computer. And in the VC? Forget about it. It's leaps and bounds over previous gauges using inefficient GDI+

you've used the framerate tuning tool in the PMDG menu? PMDG is unbelievably smooth on my computer. it looks exactly like that on mine. sorry

>PMDG Queen is about the sameAs much as I like my queen, it doesn't even compare to this in the VC ... sorry :(

Looks nice and promising.However, once the viewpoint includes both the panel and outside scenery, I would imagine the min FPS can spike low.PatAMD A64 4000+ @ 2.6GHz, Zalman7700Cu cooler, Corsair XMS 1GB DDR, LTK6800GT-OC, Asus A8V MoBo, WDRaptorHDD, TrackIR4, CH FSYoke+TQ+peds, Eclipse RED KB, XP-hsp2

Hi, I understand the enthusiasm..it's like all those promises on the telly of loosing weight without really working out. But my mom always said. If you want to be beautiful, it's gonna cost you some pain darling.... So I throw in a bit of scepticism... Quoted from Lou Betti at their forum: "Look at the VC PFD video we posted; 43 fps average, and on an average computer..." But what are the specs of that "average computer" And under which circumstances as to weather settings, traffic settings, scenery density and the like Thanks, Rob

Yep. This looks awesome. Smoothest gauge I've ever seem by a country mile.

>Very nice indeed, but Level D is like this. in VC too.>>C'mon Max, are you serious?Everyone that knows me knows I back Level-D 100%. I love their 767 but to honestly say their VC gauges are even remotely close to the fluidity shown here is just plain blasphemy!Take another look at both and come back and say the same thing :)

Did you also read the part where they are actually using their own memory allocation / cleanup system rather than MSFS's and gaining an additional 10% FPS? I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised. :)

While others mostly use GDI+, RealityXP choose to take the dirty road and develop their own graphics routines. The outcome is far superior to what GDI+ ever could provide (read about the technical features such as sub pixel rendering and other details on their site)So, RXP gauges indeed _are_ the smoothest there are. Many tried, but there's no competition so far.The fact alone that RXP people are responsible for the plane's gauges makes the panel an absolute landmark and a definite reason to buy (I fly from within the panel view and not an RC plane from the outside -- who cares about a good exterior model ;-) ?).Andreas

I don't believe in getting into pointless arguments.I love LevelD, I love the video here. And I love you, Jeff (metaphorically).I'm sure this airbus will be great. About time hey.

Hi :-)"On the AXP forums, Jean-Luc stated that a 1 GHz machine ran the sim w/ the plane in the VC at 25-28 FPS."I even think they make the standard FS9 much faster, then, becausewith 1GHz and FS9 full install and NO add-ons it's hard to get 25fps (with settings on max), so I'm really impressed.So flying the Airbus add-on will make FS run better than without having it - great! They also have a working weather radar, so they have also found a way to overcome FS9's weather engine and learned how to extract exact cloud positions.Hopefully the AP's glide slope following will be as exact as the 737 for FS02 from dreamfleet and the wx-radar works as great as reality-XP's radar released long time ago!Sorry, but am I the only one who doesn't worship an add-on which isn't there yet and nobody has played up to now? Off course there are estimates on what a company can do (PMDG is associated with high quality, as an example), but it's really amazing on what's going on in the forums about AirlinerXP.No add-on had no bugs in the beginning!I'll probably release an A320 with all of AirlinerXP features+better graphics for FS9...screenshots are already available but work in progress (link: airliners.net), price ca. 45EUR and release: not far away...Just my 2 cents,StefanBTW: If the AirlinerXP -Airbus is good, I'll buy it, too (don't wanna be misunderstood here)BTW2: More probably I won't release that Airbus *g* ;-)

Now they just integrated the technology into the ND. :)>Sorry, but am I the only one who doesn't worship an add-on>which isn't there yet and nobody has played up to now?
