    Aerosoft A320/321 Professional - available NOW

    Benjamin do you use EZCA? If so, try lowering the effect values.
  2. Hello Michael, Please calibrate your joystick from P3D options. And try now 🙂
  3. Awesome!! :) Grazie mille Umberto!
  4. Actually P3D suddenly became an Airport simulator! Love it! 🙂 Thank you very much and congrats FSDT.

    Not at all Neal. Ed is not moaning, just informing us.

    Terrain.dll crash & CPU overload?

    Hi Shom, I had the same problem who was driven me crazy for months until I remembered I once increased the Dynamic Reflections from Low to Middle in order to try Tomato shade. Since I reduced this heavy load on the GPU, no more terrain.dll error (for over a month now). Maybe didn't you increase this parameter but something else (AG is heavy as well) which is crashing your hardware, that's why you'll be advised to create a new P3D.cfg file. I for one never add any manual value to the config file so I don't feel necessary to replace P3D.cfg, but I save several graphic settings profiles and return to the default one for testing.

    Why is FS Tramp so unknown?

    Hi guys, I was a FS Navigator big fan for years until it wasn't anymore developed. I today see lot of posts about flight planners or chart viewers for P3D like EFB V2.0 but almost never about FS Tramp, which is FS Nav successor. Why? Is it because of the yearly pricing? I for one 100% agree to pay every year for such a fantastic program because I can't think of flying without. But I can imagine the price is discouraging lot of users. Is it because it is not known enough? So please do you a favor and download the free demo version. (just google FS Tramp). No need for a second monitor or remote PC, the app is directly available within P3D using a keyboard shortcut of your choice. It works in full screen mode. FS Tramp creates and follows flight plans according to the latest Navigraph data (if available), offers a wide choice of displays for SIDs/STARs on the map to help automatically selecting the more appropriate, has a unique UI with clear indications, includes AI traffic, weather etc...and has very low impact on the CPU. I have tried ALL flight planners available for P3D. None of them offers the same level of comfort and none of them is so powerful. I'll be happy to help you discovering this fabulous tool if you have any questions. Cheers!

    Why is FS Tramp so unknown?

    Yes, unequaled for me means that no other flight planner is that handy and powerful. No other payware of freeware brought me the same level of satisfaction and I believe I've tried them all. So I am absolutely in harmony with my logic but maybe not with yours 🙂

    Why is FS Tramp so unknown?

    Not sure about that. I have the feeling the dev is keeping on developing his tool no matter its success. (There are frequent updates, maybe 4 or 5 this past year) Actually I believe he doesn't wish FS Tramp to be as popular as FS Nav, for whatever reason, but it doesn't mean the product is going to die soon. I am not fan at all of his subscription pricing model and I would have preferred paying like any other product. But to be honest, FS Tramp is IMO unequaled and paying around 37€ every year and a half for such a complete addon is still something I can afford without ruining my family. There are in my hangar so many planes I have paid for and barely use, and in my scenery library so many places I have forgotten.. 🙂

    Accu-Feel v.2 Air, Land & Sea (P3Dv4) Released

    Yes thanks a lot to Alan for his explanation and to SciSimmer for this excellent video. Got it now! I thought it will interfere with EZCA but not at all, Accu-Feel is adding another level of immersion. Another excellent addon! 🙂

    Accu-Feel v.2 Air, Land & Sea (P3Dv4) Released

    I am feeling a bit like you Stan. Maybe because EZCA is already bringing a lot of effects to the cockpit.
  12. Avec tous les bidouillages que nous effectuons sur FSX nous pouvons très facilement effacer par inadvertance une texture ou un objet de la librairie et après... c'est le plantage assuré.Pour savoir quelle texture est manquante il suffit de rajouter ces lignes au fichier FSX.cfg dans la rubrique SCENERYMissingLibraryAlert=1ShowMissingTextureAlert=1 FS vous dira quel fichier est manquant et il vous suffira d'aller le récupérer sur le DVD et de le copier.Remplacez le "1" par un "0" quand vous avez trouvé le fichier manquant afin que ces lignes restent disponibles pour une prochaine fois.C'était le conseil du jour sponsorisé par Coca-Cola, Adidas et le camembert Président.*:-*
  13. FYI, Aerosoft is also developing some nice and popular addons ;-). Sorry again Chris but I can't agree with your words. You talk about constant updates? New functions added constantly?? With whom are you sharing them? AFAIK, there has been zero update during more than 1 year until what you call BM "New Generation", which is for 99% of the users exactly the same dated and complicated interface, and the same lights.
  14. Thanks for the invitation but I believe Avsim is the best place to talk about addons, not developers over protected forums. 🙂 I also believe everyone here is free to warn others about a dev's business model when this model is not usual. Asking for people to pay and wait over one year to get the product ready (BM Traffic) without any kind of notice on your store was probably also part of your business model. Sorry if I don't agree with it.
  15. I believe you'd better be less polemical (and aggressive) every time someone talks about your products Chris. You'd get a much better feedback from users. I for one love BM and believe night flying with BM lighting is a real improvement compared to ORBX. But I also believe product is way overpriced and adding annual support fees is something I totally disagree with. Overpriced because yes, you did invest some good work on it but sorry, even though you are generally talking about your "team" or "the group who invented this technology", these are "only" lights placed on correct data, not a new Dreamliner simulation you are bringing to the World. So no matter how precious and important is this project for you as a developer, paying that much for night lighting is not proportionate, and I say that as a real customers of yours (I almost own all the NE series as well). And no, there is zero explanation for requiring annual fees for support, zero. What do you call support? Answering to users who have problems installing or setting your products? But that is the minimum every developer does for his customers if he wants to keep them, no? Or maybe do you call support improving your products thanks to your customers feedback, and you are charging them for that? So what kind of "special" support do you provide to those who subscribe? And what support do you provide to the others, who already paid over 100 bucks and just wish the product to work on their machine? And why should your customers renew support after a product is working like advertised? No Chris, no other developers are charging for annual support. Support charges (which are real, no doubt about that) are obviously impacting the price, that's why they are included, as Gerard said. But the price remains reasonable, and the relationship with the developer doesn't turn to a drama every single time someones dare criticizing or just commenting the dev's support's policy. I very happily canceled the annual renewal when I received your mail because I didn't pay attention it was automatically renewed. Again, and without any mean to hurt you, I sincerely believe you'd have a better reputation among this community by accepting some critics and by containing your "online sarcasm" a bit more ;-). Just my 2cts, as an "old" simmer.

    Limiting Framerate kills framerate - why?

    Crystal clear, thanks Gerard!

    Limiting Framerate kills framerate - why?

    A quick question. Why 0,4 and not 0,33? What is the benefit to increase this value and what is the max?

    PTA vs Tomato Shade

    Hi all, I am surprised to discover Tomato just now. And so happy I did. This smart tool does EXACTLY what I was dreaming about for my liners, make them shine! I use and like PTA very much because the beautiful shaders really changed my simming experience. But Tomato is bringing it to another level of immersion.

    Aivlasoft EFB v2 - Released

    Very handy and smart tool but I have no other monitor nor PC so I can't use it unless I switch from full to windowed screen every time and that's a no-go for me. Pity there is no iPad app to use the client though.

    TFDI 717 Version 1.1 Released.

    Thanks anyway Shom. I've done the same flight followed by the same actions and no CTD this time. I believe I've tried to remove waypoints to quickly one after the other, not letting the time to the CPU to recalculate the new data.

    TFDI 717 Version 1.1 Released.

    Hi Shomron, The sim just vanished and no trace or log in the event viewer. I'll redo the same flight, remove after landing waypoints from the flight plan and see if I can reproduce this CTD. Quite weird as until now I had zero problem with the FMC.

    TFDI 717 Version 1.1 Released.

    Strange bug, I just got a CTD in mid flight when clearing some go-around waypoints from the FMC. Something known?

    TFDI 717 Version 1.1 Released.

    I am discovering this baby late in life and hey! What a masterpiece!!! I heard about TFDi long ago but never realized how much work and passion were involved in this beauty. I can't say yet that all simulated systems and features are 100% working as they should because I have only flown normal procedures but I am already in love with this bird. External details and textures are simply outstanding. Cockpit is amazing. Sounds are unmatchable. And she flies beautifully. Wow, what a nice surprise! 👍

    Black Marble NG P3Dv4.3

    OK thanks Chris!

    Black Marble NG P3Dv4.3

    Thanks Chris! Last question please. Is uninstalling the product easy? Are there any critical folder/file I should duplicate before installing BMNG? I ask that in case my rig won't accept this new avalanche of lights!
