No problems here, been running it since shortly after its release and in 9.1. With Dreamfleet's reputation for little to no bug releases its actually funny you would ask about one of theirs. I would expect more difficulties from a number of other developers.

Well I suppose me saying it works doesn't count for much, but I was under the impression the 727 was released after the 9.1 patch i.e everyone has always been using the 727 in FS9.1.I'm also not sure where you may have heard about a problem, a search of both this forum and the Dreamfleet 727 forum didn't turn up anything.......but regardless, I'm happy to see the 727 being discussed ;-)Greatest Airliners - DC-8Greatest Airliners - 727 Whisperjethttp://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...BANNER_PAUL.jpg

The reason many haven't bitten the bullit is because it takes a while to chew. The more complex the add-on and the more that was done outside the SDK, the longer it takes to do it all again for FSX............but when developers start to release the true FSX versions :-jumpyFor what it's worth, I haven't started FS9 for months now and with FEX released, I'm more than happy using my 727, DC-8 and A400M in FSX.Suppose these things will need to be shared at some point ;-)Greatest Airliners - DC-8Greatest Airliners - 727 Whisperjethttp://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...BANNER_PAUL.jpg

I've more than happy with FS9 for so long I have seen little reason to change at least until my favorite products made the migration or something so stellar came out that I just "had" to switch. An awesome DC-8 would do that I think. I hate thinking about configuring FSX with all my stuff. Ugh.Eric

Hi altstiff,Sorry for hijacking the thread, but I noticed your computer specs in your signature. With the setup you have, how do the gauges in the Dreamfleet 727's virtual cockpit perform? I'll be updating my computer around the end of the year, and I'm interested to hear what you, or anyone with a comparable system, have experienced in this regard? Thanks!Mike A.

I use the steam gauges mainly. I think the DF727 is limited in V/C gauge refresh rate anyway, no matter what the system, not like some other stuff (like PMDG).They could be better, but they are no different than they were on my old P4 3.4 system.Feel free to PM me if you have any questions reguarding my system. I used to have a P4 3.4GHZ @ 800fsb and 256mb 7800GT video card.

Another very happy customer on 9.1 here....Paul, yea, the B727 hasn't been discussed all that much, in fact it seems to me that it was one of the most overlooked releases in general! It must be one of the best bug-free releases ever and one of the loveliest add-ons for FS9. Contrary to attempts of certain others. I still ache over a certain half baked four engine jet, a close relative of your 727. :)Maybe you should build in a few bugs in the DC-8, so people talk about it and then issue a patch. Or two. Or three. ;)Oh and while I'm here... I, too, am sticking to FS9.1. Installed FSX, plunged right into it and after two months of constant tweaking, I lost my disks in a RAID 0 accident. Never bothered to reinstall the sucker. Regards,Jure
