    MCE Crashing

    Thank you for the response. I am using a usb 2 in the back of the computer. I'm not using a wireless headset. I do restart mce but it's usually during the busy phase of descent that I discover it's hung up. I do appreciate that it doesn't hang up the sim! I usually leave it on hot mike but occasionally I mute it but with the icon not numlock. I do keep testing the co pilot to see if things are ok. It seems kind of random. I haven't timed it but I'll try that. I don't feel like I've gone more than 45 minutes before it hangs up. I've already checked to make sure the usb ports don't go to sleep. Maybe it's a connector but more likely some audio setting or conflict. I had this problem with a previous headset. I think my computer came overclocked but I know the gpu is not overclocked. I won't give up yet. Thanks, Doug
  3. Unfortunately, that's behavior typical of potentiometer "spiking" that happens as they wear out. A pot uses a small electrode "wiper" that slides across a resistive film, and over time that wiper becomes dirty and/or abrades the film to the point where the film no longer presents an even gradual resistance as the wiper moves across it. Sometimes, if the pot can be opened or disassembled, you can blow it out with air and/or use a special cleaner on it, but the cheap pots used in those CH controls are sealed throwaways. 15 years is a long life for a set of plastic pedals, TBH. Time for some new ones, me thinks. Now, that said, a "phantom" controller axis can also do this. Check the axis assignments for every device listed in the Controls menu and make sure you don't have something like a gamepad axis also assigned to the brakes. Regards
  4. @lownslo Greg, thanks for all that awesome advice! Printing it out. Now it's a little more intimidating but I'm sure I can work through it.
  5. That's supposed to day "chafed" wire.
  6. Thanks for the comments. And yes happy birthday John!

    Help with 4k TV

    I have been running a 46" 4K UHDTV plus a 30" monitor using a TitanX card and a 7700 CPU. You gotta be getting awesome FPS with your set up. I am 40-50 fps now at 10,000 ft approaching KLAS in PMDG 747 - cockpit view.

    issue regarding gsx config.

    I suspect that the AFD.BGL path in the config is wrong. I’ll look at this tomorrow but in the meantime if you open the files you will see at the top a path to the airport AFD file. This needs to be the path of your sim. I’ll fix it.

    AIG Wrong planes at different terminals?

    check out the afcads sub-forum at AIG for the many "reworks / updates" of airport parking .... they correct many / most of the discrepancies you are seeing. bottom line ...... airport scenery designers are notorious for paying little attention to the AI functionality.
  14. A $260 i5-9600K would be a much better choice for a CPU...a Z390 board with a non-K CPU on it is a pretty big miss, IMHO. You don't have to overclock it to the extreme edge to still get a big bump in performance over that ugly stock 3.2GHz clock speed on the 8700. A stock intel CPU cooler also sits squarely in the massively underwhelming dept. An extra $20 for a 750W power supply would be worth considering. I do not like running anywhere near the rated capacity of the PSU. I can live with the rest of the config. The delta from a 8700 and stock fan (Ick!) to a 9600K plus a decent CPU cooler (e.g. Corsair H100x AIO) is an extra $30. Well...worth...it. Regards

    Dushanbe to Beijing

    I'm glad your plane's high fuel consumption (let me recall, "....consumes Kerosene the way a Siberian drinks Vodka...)...🙂...takes you to all these exotic places just to refuel! BTW, many years ago, my long-time (American Taxi) driver was a Mongolian, who used to travel home (Ulaanbaatar) regularly, and tell me about the bitter-cold winters of Mongolia...I could trust him at 3am in a Chicago for a O'Hare Pick up... I notice Altai is far south-west of Ulaanbaatar...but, as you say, probably in the middle of nowhere... Nice pictures, all; especially liked (a) the banking ILS capture shot (b) the night-cockpits of the Russian Green
  20. Jim, I disabled TomatoShade and Reshade and updated to 4.5. Everything looks WONDERFUL! Just upgraded from a 1060 to a 2070 and I am finally pleased with the purchase. Thanks for the help! Screenshot!

    You're a stand-up guy and a man of fine character, Jim. You can count on my prayers as you face this trial. Philippians 4:6-7 comes to mind during times like this, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ *******."

  27. Thanks! Just trying to decide as to how much of an improvement in XP11 there'd be. Dave
