Hmmm I am having a great time with this A/C and not having a fps issue at all. They have done a great job with this A/C in my opinion.Have you tried making sure your turbo button is pressed in (-:Bob

Did you open the configuration program and set it to low resolution textures and drop the gauge refresh rates? Those options were setup specifically to address performance.

I must admit I had a bit of a shock when I first loaded it too so I changed the Instrument resolution in the config.exe to 'Low' and it did make enough of a difference to make it flyable in all but the most built up areas. Luckily this isn't really an urban aircraft and I'm only going to fly it in the bush so the performance is just about 'acceptable' for me.

Staffan, This could be the first Single-engine GA product for Flight Simulator that does require a visit to the correct forum. Interestingly, our poster could NOT have had the time to have thoroughly read the manuals for this fine aircraft, which IS AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY with this aircraft if you want to use at the Pro level. And among the many other things, the manual tells you where support should be found. And the FAQ's. And it isn't here. :) Seat 7A will be a passenger seat. In a six-seat aircraft that tells us a lot, right there!All we know about this poster is that he/she is in way over their head. So anything they have to say about the aircraft is pretty irrelevant. FWIW it's working fine on my pretty mid-range AMD64 3000, GeForce 6600GT rig. After tweaking using the configuration tool. ;)Allcott

Leaving the tool alone and starting it right up crispy gauges, no issues here runs just as smooth as all the other smoothie running add-ons i have

Well, I'm having no trouble with it so far and I have a fairly weak system (Athlon XP 2500, Geforce 6600GT 128 MB AGP, 1 GB RAM). Try going into the configuration utility and setting the resolution of the gauges down a bit lower.Actually, one poster over on DA's forum said that his framerates went *up* when downloading and installing the high-res 32-bit textures, so that may be something else to try.The Do 27 is considerably more demanding than most other GA aircraft I've got (so is their Cheyenne) but I can still get good performance out of it by juggling settings in FS2004 and with the configuration utilities. And personally I think it's worth the work, it's an absolutely amazing add-on. It's got more depth and detail to it than virtually any other add-on aircraft other than the most detailed and realistic jetliners.Lewis "Moose" GregoryRichmond, Virginia

Yeah, I'm going to try those hi-res textures next, on a very similar system, but I've got pretty reasonable load times from the `normal` textures, the difference for me was turning the VC res down a notch with the config tool. The actual fidelity of this thing is just amazing. It even rocks and vibrates at startup and until you put a few rpm on the motor, and you can't start it by pushing the mixture full forward, you actually have to use a proper start technique. It's even fun to chill out next to it, put the tent up (yes, it has a tent!) and just sit and listen to the birds at Emma Field. Just awesome! :)Allcott

Just awesome!... could not have said it better myself. And probally its the system that just isnt capable of running it, since 7A hasn't provided any systemspecs that seems to be the idea

No issues here whatsoever!Great, great, great plane. Actually , to me, THE greatest of all GA planes out there on the market!Congratulations to Digital Aviation: you've outdone LDS 767 with this GA!!! when it comes to interaction with AC! By far!This is a gem - 120% pure fun!!!

Dunno about greatest, there are some excellent examples out there now, but it's up there with the best already. Immersion levels are not quite up there with the Saab Safir, for example, but that might be because I'm still getting used to the different ways of doing things with the Dornier, things which haven't been done before. From the point of view of bringing the systems accuracy of the Big Jets to a small GA, (but in a completely different way), I don't think there's anything to touch it - even the fuel gauges are INaccurate! And you do have to add oil to the engine occasionally, and service it or it becomes increasingly troubleseome! And the prop complains if you drop the engine revs too low! And in hot weather you can get vapour lock. In cold it can be difficult to start.Name another FS aircraft with so much real-world inaccuracy. So much trouble taken with the little things - who else has modelled door locks! And knocking the back door closed with the flaps after the jumpers have vacated? That's a new one on me! BUT coming back to the fuel, if they've gone to all that trouble, where's the dipstick and the drain bottle? They've almost insisted you do a proper walkround before flight, even supplied the steps, so why not test the fuel for contaminants and get an accurate level?It's a suggestion for the boxed version!Allcott

Alcott, for what it's worth, you couldn't have said it better in any other way. I got it yesterday, and this little gem ROCKS!Yes, you have to read the manual, but the fidelity of this GA is off the scale currently available. and YES, the VC gauge refresh rate is as smooth as the Realair Spitfire.You cannot go wrong, in my opinion. Just my 2 cents.I have no affiliation whatsoever with Digital Aviation.

No issues with frames here....This is some seriously clever work, and at what I consider a very reasonable cost ( under $ 25 Canadian )....I actually get nervous when I'm in or around this thing now.Incredible fidelity and immersion.cheersGreghttp://www.fs2crew.com/linepilot.jpg
