Ninja Release. Ask me a question.

Recommended Posts

I'm psychic.  So is my cat.  My mind's eye told me this morning to expect a NINJA RELEASE.  Ask me a question.

Imagine, for a moment, that the PMDG 777-300ER is a ninja. 

 

Then watch this video:

 

 

Hope it helps.

 

(Not that I'm saying the 777 will be cutted into pieces...   :ph34r:)

One of those releases where you pray to your Gods that it just happens all of a sudden, and we can fly like an eagle.  

Surprise!!!! It's released!!!

Ha ha and RSR and the team will make bets on how long before someone notices it is available in the PMDG shop. And then watch AVSIM crash when everyone on the forum tries to post a new thread at the same time.

I had a thought that last week when AVSIM was down for maintenance, that it would be released.  WHY are we so crazy about this?  There seriously isn't anything to do around here any more until it comes out.  I mean...I guess we could spend quality time with loved ones but...

I used the time to build my new PC to run the 77W etc. Kinda worked out well, as if it releases next week or so, the new rig will be all set up and tweaked to be ready for it! I also got some administrative stuff done like my birthday, some tax returns, etc. :lol:

When the time comes, we are now prepared. We have, as you may have noticed, a bandwidth throttle system. We will be setting it to 100KB a minute. That should provide everyone the opportunity to take at least one deep breath per hour. :lol:

Instead of counting sheep as time passes, now we have a simple way to count our breaths, and possibly avoid hyper ventilating!

Well if we didn't have 20 pages consisting of "thanks" etc we might not have so many problems lol

What machine did you build?  I remember building mine a few years ago.  Yes, I'm a n00b at FSX, but FS9 tinkering crosses over.  

 

Also, a lot of people are using DX10 with the fixer and getting good results.  Do you know anything about that?  Should I make the "switch"?  Can you go back if it doesn't work out?

Thanks Tom.  Usually I wait until the smoke clears a tad before downloading such as day two or three after release.  I may just go for day one this time

Hi Craig, I built a new system based on Core i7-4790K running at 4.5GHz (for now) on a Gigabyte Z97X-UD5 Black Edition motherboard. Carried over my 16GB RAM, but did add a second SSD so now have one dedicated FSX SSD. DX10 works very nicely for me BUT it is not "officially" supported. I think you can go back, but I have never tried. I run ORBX products and PMDG products and have not had any issues. I think using DX10 is why I don't seem to have OOM errors (I started on DX10 a while back).

I also can say DX10 works perfect. It seems to be a lot smoother with lower frames. All PMDG airplanes work perfect and without a problem.

No lower. Compare 15 FPS under DX9 and 15 under DX10 and you will see and feel the DX10 are a lot smoother. It's because the Graphics Card is a lot more involved under DX10. 

 

But you are right. I get higher frames with DX10 (sometimes) :D.

Nice rig Wes.  I'm running an i5-2500K Sandy Bridge.  Not over clocked yet.  Runs all my goodies just fine.  25-30 frames on the ground in the NGX at a flytampa or fsdreamteam.  Maybe I should make the DX10 switch because we all get those times when we're only getting 15-20 frames somewhere.  It will never be officially supported though, right?  FSX is no longer.

My problem is I hate running anything but full detail etc in programs. My old 3770 just could not keep up at 4.1GHz, this new system seems to give me a good few percent extra. 

 

RE DX10 - I don't believe you will see anyone officially support it as it was never an "official" feature from MS. And even with the DX10 fixer, everyone may have different results. I took the risk as I am in IT so if I wreck my system I can re-install without too much effort or cost. When it works, it works well though. I truly believe that's why I don't get OOM's.
