Ramp Manager

Recommended Posts

Ok, when I hit the shift-2 to get the ramp manager, a window sort of opens but is hidden. I can't seem to bring it up to the top. Its listed as open (with the check mark) but its not there, even when I close all the other views. The FMS and the GPS both work fine. Any thoughts?I'm running a core i7 920 with a GTX 260, 6Gb memory and two monitors off the 260. Thanks, Doug

How many views do you have open? Oh, I notice the dual monitor rig... sorry. Someone with that experience will have to jump in.

Dan,Literally, I start the sim and hit Shift 2. That's it. It should pop up right on top like the others, no? The multi-monitor shouldn't matter, but I thought I would mention it.

Yeah, Shift+2 is all I do too; what about the others like Shift+1 GPS or Shift+3 FMS?? Are these viewable?Are you full screen or windowed?

Yup, Shift 1 and 3 work fine. Start out full screen and then it windows when I start playing around with it. Could it be corrupt? Maybe a reinstall?

Hmmm. The plot thickens. The FMS window doesn't let me push any buttons. I can only do it in the VC. Thoughts? Are these related? Should I delete and reinstall? Anyone. I've never had a problem like this before with a PMDG craft.

Have you got SP2 or Acceleration installed for FSX? its a requirement I think.
I would think so. Isn't it a requirement for the MD-11 as well?

Correct. Nothing happens on the FMS pop up. The VC one works fine.

Yup, that's same problem I have. I have SP2 and all the other FSX aircraft.

Ive had some issues with the DX 10 preview option and leaving me with some black boxes on some aircraft.I have the 295 GTX and I don't use the DX10 option and the J41 works like a charm. I've also got 2 monitors and have a manual open on one and the sim on the other. I would think that it's either the fact that you don't have SP2/Acceleration installed or the J41 may be interfering with some other aircraft.I say this because there are reports of pirated versions of PMDG aircraft not working together in FSX... So, that's just an idea.

So, Guy, are you saying that the DX10 preview option issues is taken care of by SP2, or that regardless of SP2, you have to turn off DX10 preview? I have SP2. I haven't had any trouble with the other PMDG aircraft I've purchased. But, I'll try turning DX10 preview off, unless someone can convince me of a reason why that's a bad idea.

Doug, Turning off DX10 isn't bad at all. In fact, leaving it on *could* result in the potential runway and taxiway glitch where the textures seem to overlap each other and flash uncontrollably.If you ask me, DX10 is nothing more than a gimick and what Microsoft publicized it to look like in the sim isn't the reality. It just gives you the extra shadows in the cockpit and perhaps makes the water shinier but it's simply an FPS eater... And, if it was giving me issues with instrument displays, I would turn it off immediatly.

Of course, but some of the shadws and things are really cool. I was landing the 744 yesterday morning at EGLL at dawn and was chasing my own shadow along the ground. Very cool.

You get aircraft shadows in DX9 too. The only things you gain from DX10 are cockpit self shadowing where the geometry in the VC can cast shadows and "improved" water effects. I honestly think both of these things look pretty silly the way they're implemented and you take a massive performance hit to get them too. I suggest leaving the sim in DX9.
