PMDG 777 in Prepar3D 2.5

Recommended Posts

Not for me. I did all the tricks in this forum: admin install, Simconnect install... License get's not activated and Simconnect gives an error.Opened a ticket with PMDG.

W8.1 64-bit, P3Dv2.5

It works, but you'll lose the weather radar in the process (HiFi needs to update ASN for v2.5 and then it'll be good again).

...would also like to know what is the right way to go

a short statement from PMDG like --you can install it or wait for an update-- would be nice !

I got it working. I type in the activation license (no copy paste) and change language of my W8.1 back to it's Original. After activation still blank screens but all fine after restart of P3D.

Not a single glitch installing into P3D2.5 with Win7... just a lot of work because the conversion had to be done on a blank slate.

I P3D V2.5 and Global FTX + vector + OpenLC Europe an OOM problem. I use besides AI traffic. In FSX no problem with OOM.

Full names in the PMDG forums please.

Look on the P3D forums, there are plenty of tips on there on how to prevent OOMs. The main ones include using 1024 textures, limiting autogen and shadows etc.

I'm not convinced that's necessary yet... still testing.  So far I can run 4096 textures without OOM in v2.5 but I've just started tests.

Not a P3D user so wouldn't know. I just read the thread on the P3D forum about OOMs and how to solve them. I guess it's all trial and error like FSX

This brings a little something. Unfortunately Prepar3D is currently not flyable for me.

That's why I'm not quite ready to make that jump...I'm worried it'll run terribly for me.

Dan advised you last night that full names are required in this forum. It's a forum rule, and posts get deleted when that rule is ignored. Please make the appropriate adjustment. If the forum won't let you set a signature, then you'll just have to type it into the bottom of each post.

Take a flight from A to B.

If the airport is too large, then the danger is you get an Out Of Memory.

 

Taking the textures only in a resolution of 1024 pixels, but then you can also get lucky. Of course I use addon airports.

 

The Flight Simulator X is currently running better with me almost without Out Of Memory.

Lots of misinformation here.  Prepar3D v2.5 works great.... if it's better than FSX depends on your metric (or opinion).

 

I've flown several flights with 4096 textures into FSDT KLAX with no VAS problem.  In fact, only problem I have is I'm waiting for HiFi and Orbx to catch up and then I'm fully committed to P3D.

P3D v2.5 definitely works great. The key problem is that with the new release of PMDG products for the P3D platform, new users jump on board and don't have a clue how to set proper settings. Then they come to the forums and complain. I've been using Prepar3d v2 right from the start and I can tell you that apart from the fact that a 32 bit platform has restrictions, it's neither a problem of Prepar3d nor PMDG. The 777 works like a charm in Prepar3d and I can do flights from one add-on airport to the other without problems. However, I run P3D with reasonable settings. Not everything at max settings. With these reasonable settings, Prepar3d still looks way better than FSX in every regard.

 

 

 

Fsdreamteam airports are perhaps exceptions. The fact is that my Flight Simulator X runs better in DirectX10 Mode.

 

 

Why don't you stay with FSX then?

Just because you don't get OOMs in P3D, doesn't mean that you're doing everything right and other people who do are just sloppy and setting everything at max. I don't get OOMs in FSX, neither does this person. So does that mean every single person who gets an OOM in FSX haven't set it up properly and come here to complain about it? No of course it doesn't. It's unpredictable. Some people get them some people don't across both platforms. It's doesn't mean you've done anything right and then wrong. Just means you got lucky and they didn't. It's a lottery.
