I also get frame rates and you mentioned this before in a previous post. Honestly, it probably does have something to do with your setup.Jeff

Crappy computer?3.2 OC'ed to 3.7ATI X800pro1 gig OCZ 3200ASUS p4c800e deluxeNot what I would call a crappy setup. Guys I don't know what your definition of good frames are but maybe mine is higher.eg. I am sitting in KATL on VATSIM using activesky. I have my fps locked at 26. I load pmdg. PEGGED at locked fps. I immediately load LDS. PEGGED at locked fps. I then load feelthere ERJ. PEGGED at locked fps. I then load right away PSS and fps jump from 25 to 18 - 24 - 12 - 25. Why nopt pegged at the locked fps like the rest of the addons. You can not tell me there is something wrong with the PSS after that test. The other panels I load are the latest and greatest and you would think they would bog down my system. so why then?

I don't even bother with PSS panels anymore. Just stick with LDS or PMDG. I get the FPS problem, but I don't really mind because there are panels light years ahead of PSS's that I use anyway, so I don't use PSS panels. Boeings are better anyway :)

Can you guys let me know what excellent performance is? Settings on high too? Also what is your settings on the performance when you go to your MCDU and click data and performance settings. i have 0 selected for the PFD, ND, and E/WD. The SD and MCDu refresh are both set at 3. I find the FPS makes a big difference depending on what you have set here. Finally what is your fps when you have the PFD,ND, and E/WD all double clicked to have them zoomed?

Settings very high, resolution 1280*1024, detailed airport, AS4.5, frames locked at 20, haven't tried with AI traffic though, I prefer online flight. Don't underestimate the PSS planes, they lack a few pages on the mcdu, failures and antialiased gauges but apart from that little else. Having said that I use the panels merged with IFDG planes. Edit to say that I have the two main gauges refresh rate set to 0 also, the others I don't remember. And I fly most of the critical phases of flight with these two zoomed.Regards,

yes, everything on high. 25-30 fps almost everywhere, smooth as silk, and looking great.With framerates locked at 20 (which I usually do and which is more than enough) solid 20 fps.And that's with 3 year old hardware, I got this computer around the time FS2002 hit the streets.

Many many are getting great perf with the PSS A330/340. I get consistent 24-25fps (locked at 25). This is with SB3 and Activesky 4.5 going. I also have 10 layers of clouds with AS 4.5. I run a 3.2Ghz with 1GB of RAM and a 9800Pro card. Seems like the bug is with the operators, not the product.

Cap your frame rate to 24-25 to cover up the bug will work but will not remove the bug. The bug is a a frame rate drop of around ten frames every 2-3 secs Funny how other Aircraft don

First of all, I suspect that the original poster hasn't done his research in the relevant forums...If that's so, time to get back there on the double and start searching old threads...Maybe you'll also find something there to help with that flickering mouse... ;)Regards,

Indeed. The anti-PSS kiddos have arrived. Took longer than expected. Now we can only hope Tom and crew finally get rid of them and their lies forever.

You're the bug, not the product...I think if someone were to check your records it would turn out you don't even own the product.That means you either have a pirated version or you're making things up as you go along (or possibly both).

You're the bug, not the product, don't even own the product, anti-PSS kiddos, get rid of them and their lies forever all sounds a bit dramatic I mean really would any intelligent person take advice from people who speak like this I think not

I have similar specs and regularly cross the pond in the 340 - 10 hrs at a stretch no time compression and no fps drop (capped at 30) - very hi to maxed settings.regards,Mark3.2HT/1GIG/X700pro256

Sorry guys,have to agree, the PSS Airbus 330/340 suck the FPS out of my rig too. PMDG737, PSS Dash 8 etc all run great.Load up the 330/340 frames drop like a bomb,And, no , I am not anti PSS either. I have many of thier products. As for you jwentwing or whatever your name is, your obnoxious personality raises it's ugly head once more. You are nothing more than a keyboard warrior. You wouldn't have the balls to call me a liar to my face I bet.Anyway.....enough of this, the 330/340 no longer resides on my system.

I would, if I had reason to. Not knowing me you make sweeping statements about me which you can't back up with anything, statements which are incorrect. That makes you a liar so why shouldn't call you one?
