FYI - for the benefit of anyone who is a newcomer to this aircraft, the answer to Bert's original questions is :

 

For a quad cpu running with AM = 14....the section in the maj ini file should read:

[SYSTEM]
; timing source  0=Queue Timer, 1=Multimedia Timer
TimingSource=0
; disabling the FDE to FSX syncronization might be necessary if unlimited fps setting is used
disableFDEtoFSXSync=0
; by default Dash-8 will not load it's tasks onto the CPU core where the FSX process runs
disableFSXCPUBypass=0
; Here one can specify which CPU cores the certain function threads will prefer to run
; 1 bit per core. For example, 2=CPUid2, 4=CPUid3, 6=CPUid2+3  Only takes effect if disableFSXCPUBypass is not 0
systemThreadsCPUMask=0
graphicsThreadCPUMask=0

 

Exhaustive testing (well 10 minutes !), shows this allows the physical cores 1 to 3 (2nd to 4th effective) can run up to 100% each, and the first physical core (Core 0), is used by the Dash 8 FDE engine - and is typically running at 50 to 100%. Clearly, it detects that FSX is running on cores 2 to 4, and runs the FDE on the first core (Core 0).

Presumably, if you wish to specifiy a core for the two factors at the bottom, currently set to = 0, you must also change the disableFSXCPUBypass to = 1.

This is actually quite an achievement, as I have never seen FSX running at nearly 100%..... FSX uses up to 75% and the Dash FDE up to 100% on the 1st physical core, not being used by FSX. Astounding !

(Luckily,  I am bailing on FSX in the next month or 2, so it is rather moot for me..... and I'm getting a stoopid powerful cpu with like 8 billion cores (well - 6 /12 threads), as P3D does appear to run smoother with multiple threads, if not actually improving FPS per se. And, it can only get better.

I certainly won't be sorry to see the back of FSX.... OMG, it's been one long nightmare.

Problem with that

Problem with that is that it is a read only forum.  You need an invitation code they never will send.

They may help with email, they responded fairly quickly to me once but it is frustrating to not have a clear support path.

just as  orbx  and  rex  forum  you need  verification  before  you  can  post  your  issue  there  are  others  as well

Yes but Orbx does not require you to apply through an unknown means for an invitation code.

Well look

http://majesticsoftware.com/forums/entry/register?Target=discussion%2F3306%2Fmjc8-q400-x64-editions-version-1-020a-patch

When you go to the user area after already having given a User name you have a section to join forum

This form needs an "Invitation code" to use.  Where does it tell you how to get one.

Kindly refrain from sending false statements regarding our Official Support system.  Our forum provides specific instructions regarding gaining access to the forum, which yes is via an invitation code.

 

Thank you.

You are correct you were advised that all support is handled via the forum via the Facebook messenger, and you were given the necessary information to provide in order to acquire an invitation code, which you since then received.  The forum is monitored daily and depending on the issue some are answered quickly whereas some are delayed depending on who is better able to respond to the issue.  Most questions are handled on the forum by other users who have experienced the same issue, or they will point users to topics that have been previously discussed via the search feature.

The topic that you posted did not necessarily require MJC support as it was answered by one of the helpful users of the forum.  I also tested this airport and have not had issues setting the altimeter, I too like most are using the US System (feet, inches) within the simulator platform, as it has been discussed via several threads on the forum of this problem relating to the Q400.

Keep us posted via the MJC forum regarding this problem

Thank you

I will continue posting in your forum as it is not a location issue but a pressure issue for all airports with a pressure greater than 30 in as this is the max range of the adjustment knob, which did not show up before the latest p3d4 update.
