    P3D 4.4 Released - Good Enough?

    Glass half full, glass half empty..
  2. Why not simply enjoy v4.4. Instead of worrying about the future.. Who predicted that MS would dump fsx?

    PA-34 Seneca V in P3D V4.4

    Not sure there has been an update since then.. Should work as is.. just install it!
  4. I ran a 3770k with a 770 and fsx as well.. worked just fine. Now p3dv4.4 3770k@4.3 and a 1070.. runs even better!

    RealAir Piston Duke with RXP GPS500

    If you install it as I did, the xml gauge goes into a customb60 folder inthe panel folder or the gauges folder, your choice.

    Vertx Diamond- Wow.

    Why not get it now and add those features if and when they become available?

    Newbie question...

    Any text editor will do... Wordpad? Just make sure it is saved as a text file with the same name. You should be able to find Notepad on your Windows start menu.

    Hopefully I can clear this up for you.. Carenado supports an F1 GTN 750 in the Citation panel. That is all they offer.. SO, that is what you get when you run their little installation program. The "definition" is those two lines in the panel.cfg file. Replacing those two lines is all it takes to have the panel call for the RXP GTN instead. It would be simpler if Carenado offered RXP GTN integration in the first place, as some aircraft vendors do.. you can talk to them about that if you wish.. The way forward is to either figure out how to run the RXP conversion routine, or do it by hand as we have detailed above.. Best of luck.. it should work

    You may have to wait for your son to come back.. Correct.. you just need to replace the characters so that it reads like the text I referenced above. Typically you right click on the panel.cfg file Select Open with.. Choose Notepad.

    If you cannot get the Addon menu item to show in FSX, here is something you can try.. In the Citation aircraft folder which you found previously, find the panel folder. In the panel folder there is a panel.cfg file. Make a copy of it as a backup and then open it with Notepad. You should find: [Window01] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=937,887 ident=14401 window_pos= 0.660, 0.420 window_size= 0.340, 0.580 zorder=99 gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750, 0,0,937,887,UNIT1.POP and further down [Vcockpit05] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=1024,1024 visible=1 pixel_size=1024,1024 texture=$Panel_5 gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750VC, 0,0,667,794,UNIT1 gauge01=C2CAR!Toggle10400, 64,0, 512, 32 Those are the definitions for the F1 GTN. Make two edits: in Window01 gauge00=rxpGTN!GTN_750_1, 0, 0,937,887 in Vcockpit05 gauge00=rxpGTN!GTN_750_1, 0, 0,667,794,NO_BEZEL Save and start up the Citation.

    Newbie question...

    OK, this could get tricky... but lets take it in small steps. 1. Are you sure which GTN 750 gauge you installed initially? There is the Reality XP version which we are talking about here, and another version from another vendor (F1) which the Carenado Citation is set up for. The install should have put up a Users Guide on your desktop.. If in doubt, look in your C: drive for a RealityXP folder with some GTN keys or licences. 2. Assuming it is indeed the Reality XP version, you need to replace the F1 GTN definition which the Carenado exe that you ran installed for you, with the RXP version. Don't worry about the exe showing or not showing.

    Vertx Diamond DA62 (Legibility of text in VC)

    Looks about right to me..

    Newbie question...

    Does the trainer power up when run by itself? How did you install the GTN into the Citation? If you ran the Carenado F1GTN750S550 exe, it would have installed the F1 GTN for you. If that is the case, with the Citation loaded.. go to the P3D menu bar at the top of the screen. The rightmost item should be add-ons. (click to the right of Help). Choose RXP GTN. That should give you an RXP window where you can choose to replace the F1 GTN by the RXP GTN. Read the provided RXP documentation for details.

    Hyperthreading off works great!

    That was not really the intent.. enabling every core is the default if there is no AM set..

    Hyperthreading off works great!

    Nice try, but he is running a quad core CPU, so 4095 does not apply
