    Does PMDG have sales?

    There is a waiting list for a new roller in the UK, if a dealer want`s to give some of there profit that's up to them, same goes for Aerosoft.

    Does anyone use Track IR anymore ?

    I have a window directly behind me, but TrackIR is fine with the passive clip as long as I close the blinds (or it’s dark😁) and turn down the camera sensitivity.

    True! It's tricky to differentiate when surfing for images though..

    Cant find it either!
  9. Hi, New to PTA, and I have very basic question that I think I know the answer to based on forum searches, but I want to be 100%: Do PTA and REX work together? For example, if I have my PTA preset the way I want it, but I change the textures in REX4, it will change the visuals in the sim or no? I'm pretty sure the answer is yes. I just want to make sure. In which case it seems to me that PTA allows you to delve deeper into visual customization beyond what you can do with REX4 alone. Which I find pretty awesome. Thanks!

    AVSIM and Flight Sim Expo 2019

    I noticed AVSIM is not listed anywhere as an exhibitor, sponsor or media partner list for the 2019 Flight Sim Expo. How come? It looks to be a pretty big event and surprised that AVSIM is not listed.
  11. Appreciate the kind words, it was quite hard to get it all setup to not look out of place and fit in correctly with the rest of the gauges. Cheers, Thomas

    Blue and Green Stripes on Runways

    Yeah. Weird color artifacts are often a sign of an overheating video card. Next time it happens open up the box and see if your video card's fans are running. And make sure they're not full of dust. If they are, get a can of compressed air from an electronics department and blow it all out, paying particular attention to getting it out of the heat sink below the fan. There's also a program you can download called HWmonitor. If your graphics card software doesn't tell you the card temperature, grab that and check what the reading is when the artifacts start. If you've cleaned out the dust and the temp is still too high (generally over 80 degrees C) then the thermal compound under the heat sink might have failed. If none of that or lownslo's suggestions work, it might be time to replace the card.
  13. After additional work today I deemed this a roadblock -- the cockpit panel that paints the GPS screens on are in a file that I can't import/export successfully. It's unfortunately due to many circumstances out of my control and obviously Carenado reports zero plans to ever implement it. So here is where I ended up. - I graciously used Bourrinopathe models (which are freaking AMAZING!) and added them to cockpit - I removed the knob acutators from the cockpit.obj file using text editor; no more mouse over GPS and picking up the random buttons/knobs from GNS 430 It's pretty decent for what it is -- though really the screen could be just bit bigger. Overall I'm happy and done (after 3 days of going at it.) Major thanks to Bourrinopathe for my PM's and the models.

    Official Panel Configuration Mods

    Hi Frank, Thanks, and yes, all touch screen functionality is fully operable in both the VC integrated 3D-panel, as well as through the single right-click popup 2D-panel. The GTN's 2D-panel additionally has operative dials and DTO button functionality. Cheers, Thomas

    Does anyone use Track IR anymore ?

    Well okay, for those who use 'Track Clip Pro'. I would venture that a better tip for newcomers is to try it with the passive (hat) clip first. This works perfectly well as long as you take some care with the lighting conditions and it means you don't need wires.

    Unable to login to FSDreamTeam

    Richard, that should fix it but if not you should contact FSDT support if able. Umberto does visit this forum so he may spot this and reply. It hasn't happened since so once fixed stays fixed.

    Is a FMC Expansion a possibility?

    Come on gang...let's focus on winglets for this bad boy. Getting some more range.
  19. Well..... Use PC, I was inflight and tried HighRes...lost sound for the rest of flight. HighRes turns out to be for HighRes audio files. So PC, 48Khz 16bit and DTS off.
  20. Hi All, How do I trigger an action in my flow based on a certain config? For example, I am trying to automatically trigger the after takeoff flow (FSL A3X) when setting up flaps to 0. I couldn't find the documentation for this. Is there something I can look at to give me what is possible with custom flows? Thank you in advance
  21. Thanks alot. What setting do you use pc or High res??

    Does PMDG have sales?

    I'm willing to bet, however, that if I talk to a Rolls Royce salesperson they would indeed give me a discount on one of their cars. Dave

    Are FSX and P3D becomng step children?

    True, the default sim is endless Summer. There are a couple of free Winter texture add-ons and one payware add-on for seasons. The TerraMaxx payware add-on works, but because it requires loading in a huge amount of data it will pause the sim. So it's not good for in-flight transitions. It's okay if you decide to fly in one season for an extended period. It also doesn't work on ortho-based terrain, just the default landclass scenery. And it doesn't automatically add snow to airports, which looks weird (there is a way for airport designers to incorporate the add-on, but it's not common). So, not an ideal situation. Austin (the X-Plane lead developer) has said in the past that he'd like to do seasons procedurally with effects programming and particle systems, not just a basic texture overlay. So trees would change color and drop leaves according to seasons, snow would accumulate or disappear on autogen buildings based on real weather input, and so on. Very ambitious, and we won't see this in the current XP11 cycle. Maybe in XP12, but nothing has been confirmed.

    Are FSX and P3D becomng step children?

    Exactly. ORBX is in business to make money and they'll develop whatever they need to in order to achieve that goal. I agree completely with you regarding the openLC scenery. It is clear that ORBX has chosen to focus almost exclusively on the TrueEarth scenery at the expense of openLC, again because of sales considerations which I understand. That doesn't make it any less disappointing, however. If you look at their preview screenshot and release announcements it is almost funny how many times the word "TrueEarth" appears. Maybe they should change their name from "ORBX" to "TrueEarth Inc." Dave

    P3D multicore usage anomoly

    So this argument seems to say, 'not in this domain at least at the present time, that is currently only in the domain of consoles', save a few other features like tessellation, etc.. Fair enough that is the current state of priorities. What's especially relevant to WHEN this starts to be maximally prioritized is the fact processing power improves so modestly nowadays. My trusty 3930K is still, 6y later in terms of what seems to matter most, that coveted single-thread performance, is a grand total of about 44% improved w/ a 9700K or similar. Meanwhile, ORBX TrueEarth appears. So what's hamstringing the approach we keep describing here? User sets CPU/GPU thresholds, engine adjusts according to that plus considers what's coming down the flight plan in the next few seconds.
  27. The latest X-Plane on steam is XP-11.33 beta 1. This is the version in use here. MCE for now is 1.3.8.5. The files are there from the installation process... no manually copied files. Thanks in advance for looking in that specific problem with the FF320.
