Not working for me

Recommended Posts

Just to let you know.

I downloaded the program and ran it with FSX, SmartCars (my VA's system) and PMDG 737.


The interface was easy enough but the actual result was a disaster.


As soon as I started the program my frame rates went from about 12-15 down to 0.5 to 3 fps (really!)

The plane moved in jumps of about 20 meters at a time along the runway. Airport traffic also was jumpy.


As soon as I stopped the program the frame rates shot up again to 12-15.


Needless to say, I have uninstalled.

First off, thanks for reporting a problem. I'm sorry simFDR doesn't currently work well for you, but I do appreciate your feedback to make the program much better. This is also why we allow full evaluations of our software.


Did you actually start a flight with simFDR, or did your frame rates drop immediately when the program was started? I can assure you it works well with a PMDG 737 - here's a sample flight https://www.simfdr.com/flight.do?id=0x77 - but there may be a few wrinkles in your specific situation.


Second, have you tried running it without SmartCARS running? Having it run side-by-side with another flight logger isn't a tested or supported configuration (although it has been reported to work flawlessly side by side with Delta Virtual's ACARS package).


I understand you have uninstalled but any assistance you could provide me in tracking down this issue would be greatly appreciated. If you're a PMDG owner, you will also appreciate a working simFDR installation based on the amount of data it can provide you about the aircraft system states.
