FSX:SE and P3Dv2 in the same rig...

Recommended Posts

Any of you with this setup and no problems ?

 

I ask because sometime ago I made the STUPID move of buying P3Dv2.5, just 1 month before v3 was release :-/, and even worst - the 2nd 777 by PMDG to run with it :-///

 

So, I am considering installing P3Dv2.5 just to run the 777, and then have FSX:SE for the rest ( NGX and A2A stuff, RealAir stuff will also go P3Dv2.5... ).

 

Any problems with such a co-existence of sims ?

 

( I'm also posting this at the P3D forum ... )


Don't know, but to me MFS looks a lot like the "Barbie" of desktop flight simulation...

Doesn't matter - I like to play with Barbies...

They are 2 totally different programs, so obviously will not affect each other.

Re the P3Dv2.5 purchase.... You DO know that you have a 60 day period to see if you are happy with it & then can ask for a refund?

I know Robin, and thanks for reminding me of that, but when it was already too late. I did buy it less than a month before v3 was released, but when v3 was released I was too busy to even start p3d, and whenI finally remembered about that refund policy, it was already too late.

 

Anyway, I was fine with v2.5 when I installed it. I plan to use the PMDG 777 200 with it ( bought that too, although I had it and the 300 for FSX:SE... ).

 

I just don't know ( but that pertains to the PMDG forum ) if both versions of the 777 can peacefuly co-exist.

 

And I never experienced any OOM or CTD s with v2.5. Did one long haul flight with the 777, and ASN pumping the weather, so, since my rig it's an "old" i5 2500, although the graphics card is good - GTX 960 4 GB, I think I wouldn't benefit that much from upgrading to v3 ?
