    How much space will I need...

    Heck Noel, I thought you were old enough to remember using a hard rock to scratch animal pictures on the cave walls..................

    You win the prize Luis. It was, indeed, Bill Gates. And you're also right about the amount...he did say 640K, not 64K (my bad)..........Doug

    How much space will I need...

    Boy, does that ever bring back memories. The first program I ever "wrote" was a bunch of wires plugged into a board on a 1620. It's really important to remember, though, that 64K of memory is all anybody will ever need...now if I could just remember who said that...😁
  4. And never forget...Ford is better than Chevy, Ferrari is better than Lamborghini, and Sofia is better looking than Gina... PS: I'd go with Intel...it's better than AMD for both FSX and P3D...
  5. There is absolutely no performance difference if you have the OS on the same SSD as any sim. It is easier to recover the system if the OS is on its own SSD but that's the only advantage. The "OS on its own drive" applies only to HDD's where head movement and seek times are an issue - that problem has been eliminated with the SSD......................
  6. I wouldn't change it. What you have is as good as anything right now...................

    No initialisation on 737 or 777 in p3dv4

    Well, it may be the wrong one but that's what's in the P3D redist folder. You can close this out now. P3D is working. The 737NGX is working. And that's good enough for me......................Douglas Robbins

    How much space will I need...

    Hey Noel.....I remember when there was no such thing as a HDD on a personal computer...😁 . I don't think anyone knows how much space will be required. But, I do know two things.....1) it will be a lot and, because of the cost, there is no way I'd put it on SSD's and 2) if ORBX continues with this insanity of download only (no DVD or USB option) I won't be buying any. of any it....................Doug

    The simconnect version is 10.0.61637.0 (FSX-SP2-XPACK). I've never installed or re-installed the Client by itself...always the full sim. My full name is in the last line of my earlier post...same as here.............Douglas Robbins

    I just spent days trying to get the cockpit initialized on a P3D 737NGX re-install. Problem is solved and I hope this may help someone else. I'm running P3dV4.3.2.9.25520 with the 737 version 1.20.8413 on 64-bit Windows 7. The problem seems to be with the update immediately after the 737NGX install. If I run the update nothing works. If I skip the update everything is fine and back to normal. Strange things these computers...........................Douglas Robbins
  12. Since you're flying tubeliners I don't think the ground scenery will make much difference. It's hard to see anything from FL35. If I had to make the choice I'd stay with the default scenery and concentrate on the airports, That said, I don't know about GEX, but FSX Global will have no effect on frame rates...........Doug
  13. Buy what you need Boomer. Send me a PM and I'll mail you a check for the difference.........Doug
