777 with 2 contrails

Recommended Posts

I held off buying the 777 until I had a platform with a future. P3D v2.4. 2.5 will be downloaded next month and will consume 1/5 of my bandwidth in 1 fell swoop. Everything on the 777 works as PMDG designed it but at cruise, I have 2 contrails. The first is as it should be but the second one goes off at a tangent and seems to imitate yaw. It also recycles every second, stop/start. I did google the problem but came up with zip. Is this a known issue?

Default effects leave alot to be desired in FSX and P3D.  You may want to try 777 Immersion which everyone is going nuts about.  From the videos Ive seen, contrails look pretty good, but that'll be a $25 contrail...

P3D contrails are iffy at best. I've learned to ignore them.

777 Immersion, wait to see how things pan out with the latest update. On mine most all effects stop working after the update, waiting to hear back, I'm sure it's just a glitch.

Thanks for your replies. Apologies for not answering earlier but I've been in hospital for hand surgery. Just got home.

 

I did ignore the effects and was not too fussed about the glitch. I was merely checking to see if other people had them working. BTW, just flew ybbnwsss (Brisbane australia to singapore) with fps around 15 all the way. Smooth as silk AND all with one hand.

I'll definitely check that out.

Waiting until 01/04/15 when I will have some bandwidth to play with.

I had the 2 contrails with Prepar3D V2.4.  Once I upgraded to v2.5 the contrails went down to 1.
