  1. >>>>> Hello I have a question about the fueling procedures for the>747x. My question is why does the fuel fill up the tanks>slowly like they are actally filling up like in real life?

And high-demanding.In FS9 it was just like that, pushing a button to refuel the a/c.And check out the forum rules if you find the time to do so, only 2 banners allowed.
  2. I haven't read the whole post but I can asure you that the climb performance is more then just fine.A couple of days ago I was at my local airport(Maastricht, The Nethelands) spotting the Cargolux B744F and at departure to Luxembourg (which is only 80NM), completely empty as usual, he only required 800M to get airborne and the climb performance was incredible!
  3. @ Ryan.Are you saying that VC has better FPS then 2D?
  4. I must say that I'm pretty pleased with my performance on Vista.I have the PMDG 747X for FSX and I get around 25-40FPS.These are my specs:AMD Athlon X2 +6000 AM2 socket.3GIGs of RAM @ 667MHz (dual chanel)ATI Sapphire X1900XT 512MBMSI K9N Neo-F V1.9Seagate 320GB 7200RPM with a silent max rev2 cooling.Be Quiet 470W powersupply.2x NEC AD-7173SStill I think is weard that FS9 runs better on Vista then it does on XP, and for FSX it's the other way around.
  5. I'm sure PMDG will post a full report like they did last year. :)
  6. I see your using a AMD athlon X2 +4200, and since FSX is a processor intensive game instead of a graphicscard intensive game I recommened to upgrade to the black-edition (+6400).I don't know about your RAM-size but a minimum of 3GB is what I would recommened.
  7. It's correct behavior. Most airlines choose to have Baro as there standard to be displayed on the PFD and have an optional DH available for precision approaches.
  8. I have read somewere that you can change the payload without having to exit FSX. Is that realy true?Have you tried right klicking on the
  9. Ok thanks,It's still confusing, some sites call it the DX10 expansion pack addon while others call it a regular addon.Anyway, fantastic to have the 747 available for FSX. :)
  10. Hey,As the subject may suggest already, is the PMDG 747X compatible with the new expansion pack?If so, do we still need FSX SP1 for the expansion pack? Or is it integrated in the expansion pack?
  11. Don't worry about that, cause nobody seems to have performance data avail.
  12. If I find them, I place this topic back at the top.So keep an eye on this topic.
  13. Hey,A couple of weeks ago I started a topic about MD11 manuals, if they were avail somewere on the net, and I got them.Now I'm hoping to find some performance data like Vspeeds, thrust settings, Max field take-off weight, etc...Any idea where to find these?Thanks in adv,
  14. As far as I remember, this is already done.
