Thinking About Coming from FSX- P3D or DX10 Fixer

Recommended Posts

My current system I7 4790K with GTX970 runs FSX pretty smooth, still trying to get rid of some minor stuttering but I feel I am missing out on the DX10 and above features that will be coming or are out currently.

 

I have a few questions if you guys can help out....

 

1- Which one would be better to go to with my current system, P3D or Steves DX10 Fixer.  Price is really not that much difference.  DX10, $29 and P3D $59.

 

2- If I make the switch to P3D do I have to re-buy all my current add ons to be compatible to P3D, thought I heard there is an application that switches this for you.  

 

3- What addons don't work in P3D currently.  Below is the list of add ons I currently have....Aerosoft Airbus, PMDG 737, Captainsim 757, FSDT Sceneries, Flight Beam Sceneries, Avlasoft, ASN and REX, Aerosoft Chicago Cities X

 

4- If going with P3D, I only have one 512GB SSD, can I have both P3D and FSX on the same hard drive?

1 - I used Steve's DX10 fixer. It was excellent and transformed FSX but I was tempted by the promised ongoing development of P3D. With that GPU your PC should fly in P3D. I'm using a GTX750 Ti and get a smooth 50-60fps at most times. Should make things smoother in DX10 FSX as well but remember P3D takes advantage of DX11 ;)

 

2 - No you don't. I use the Estonia migration tool or just move aircraft manually.

 

3 - I don't have any airliner add-ons so all my aircraft work apart from the RealAir Duke but I believe a P3D version is in the works. ASN now works fine in V2.5+beta. Check their forum for downloads!

 

4 - you should easily get both P3D and FSX on that drive. I have both on my 256GB SSD.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Cheers

Thanks, I appreciate it.  I think P3D might be the better long term solution than the DX10 fixer.

P3D still annoys me at times and some bugs remain but the support here on AVSIM is good thanks to Rob Ainscough and his advice/tweaks etc.

Onward and upward.
