Looking for some information on GSX regarding performance with this aircraft.

 

Thanks

You mean does GSX recognize the PMDG 777 and doors? Yes. It also allows you to tweak most things aircraft related, for example you'll probably disable the left door #1 since dual jetways are not widespread yet.  It also recognizes the PMDG 777F as a cargo variant and pulls a loader up to the main cargo door.  All is good.

Dan,

 

Thanks for your quick reply. I was also concerned about any performance hit. A hit to FPS.

 

 

Does it work with all default airports? Or do you have to buy additional one?

You're getting into questions about GSX that would best be answered in the FSDT GSX forum.

GSX doesn't have much impact on performance or VAS use..., there's some but none that I've noticed.  The only inconvenience is most P3D updates need a corresponding couatl.exe update but FSDT is pretty quick with those.

 

GSX works with any airport, and can be tailored in many ways following a pretty good user manual.

Dan,

 

 

I did leave a message with FSDT GSX either last Thursday or Friday and have not heard back from them. Also can't find the message on their forum that I left. I have been having problems logging on to their site. Hence the reason I posted here.

 

So based on your replies. I guess you would recommend GSX.

 

Thanks.

GSX works outside of FSX /P3D using the couti exe engine.. Very little impact, and you may get a stutter when you first load it.

Your system is more than capable of running it

I use GSX most flights, since I like to start a session as if I am arriving at the aircraft at a gate during a turn.  As a minimum I use it for pushback and departure and marshaling (parking guidance) on arrival.  The pushback is nifty in that you can customize where the pushback path is in cases where the left/right/straight options do not work because for example you are in an alley and you need pushed back to a taxiway six gates away. All you need is the basic skills with ADE to modify the apron paths in the AFCAD. Pretty nice.

Thanks to all for your replies.

 

Dan BTW I received a reply today from FSDT GSX.

 

Looks like I'm going to give it a try.

 

Thanks Again.

GSX is a must have with all planes in P3D in my eyes :-)

 

You won't be disappointed.

I used it with the Aerosoft Buses, PMDG 777.

As far as GSX goes, it has practically zero effect on performance for me. What I do notice though, it that when I first load up GSX at an airport (either before takeoff or taxiing to the gate) there will a brief couple of seconds where I'll get a stutter, but after that everything is back to normal.

Same here.

But that doesn't really bother me.
