Thinking of trying P3D - A couple of questions

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I am thinking of trying P3D, I have a very nice FSX setup using DX10 right now but I am thinking of the future and I know FSX currently isn't making the most of the hardware I currently have.

 

I have been checking the addons that I have for compatibility and the only one that is really an issue is me 737 NGX & 777 which I know PMDG are working on.

 

I know I can get a P3d license for Active Sky Next, my question is does it only work with one Sim? I guess I would like the flexibility to switch between FSX/P3d until I make the switch full time.

 

I also use PFPX & Aivlasoft EFB and I wonder if it is the same for those products too.

 

Any advice would be most appreciated

 

Regards

 

Richard

I don't know about the other addons, but there is no problem with switching ASN to work with both: FSX or P3D.

Dear Richard,

 

PFPX and Aivlasoft EFB work fine in P3D.

Sorry,

 

clicking to fast...

 

Both work fine with P3D, not "in", you just have to add the correct path in their respective saving protocols.

Hopefully you won't be disappointed! P3D is in active development, thats what I really like about it, it isn't sitting out in the elements gathering rust, its in the hangar and constantly out on test flights after a few new additions and fixes to the sim.

is it best to pre pay for 1 month of the developer license to give it a try?

Is the FSX mouse bug (frame reduction with mouse cursor visible) actually present in P3D?

As long as the top menu bar is closed, I see no FPS affect by having the mouse cursor in screen in P3Dv2
