    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    They still refuse to send the basic 8 control gauge numbers so we can use hardware like Saitek gauges. I am sorry, This is a pathetic miserable company I refuse to do business with
  2. I believe its a PMDG version where their software (PMDG 777, 747 and 737) can now be ported to cockpit hardware on mulitiple PCs. Or maybe its in collaboration with someone like Flightdeck Solutions or similar. This seems like the logical next step... that takes what they do to another level. It would also be viable commercially for training. I hope that is what it is..

    ORBX EU Netherlands TrueEarth released

    Orbx ought to provide for a way to install on non P3D drive since their disk space requirement is growing.. the current model is not sustainable.

    ORBX EU Netherlands TrueEarth released

    So this is the equivalent of VFR Scene like PACA?

    No CTDs since P3Dv4.2 release

    Usually old Addon Scenery that causes CTDs... Not PMDG Aircrafts.

    Farewell FSW

    P3D uses multiple cores reasonably well.. compared to what FSX was.. In fact the 6 core processor from Intel actually helps (which I forgot to mention) for terrain and textureloading. But IMO, Intel not improving their speed has done more damage or been non helpful to our hobby.

    Farewell FSW

    I am so contended with P3D v4.x I am still on v4.0 did not even update the last two micro updates I am more upset with Intel not providing us a 7.0Ghx Processor by now. Intel is pretty much dead! That's the only thing that can improve my sim world. Maybe, Just maybe, P3D can try to improve its night lighting to be as good as XP.... apart from that. what else could P3D do to improve that we cannot get with addons?
  8. I added AutogenConfigurationManage.exe as part of my exe.xml But whenever I start P3Dv4, it says The AutogenConfigurationManage.exe has stopped working (A popup). I can't run this independently either. hmm.. I have the latest version that I donwloaded today. EDITED TO ADD: I read the ACMDeveloper.pdf and had to do what the developer was suppoted to and installed the ACM that way...and removed my exe.xml edit that I had done.. its now installed via the addon.xml and now when I started P3Dv4, I did not get the error I also had an older version of the ACM.exe sitting in my folder which I had to overwrite with the new downloaded version. I didn';t realize I had installed this earlier. Hmmm.. and now the merge works.. I now seee trees within PACA.. but I am yet to test Orbx.
  9. The discussion veered off into multiple tools and it got confusing. I had only Orbx scenery when I started my atuogen files were managed by Orbx. I then got VFR france PACA and after installation today... I noted that it has over written 4 files in my P3Dv4 Autogen folder but it had taken its own backup for 1) autogen/Description.spb 2) Autogendescriotion_legacy.spg 3) MAterials.spb 4) Roofdescription.spb so I took PACA's files (4 files of those name (smalller version) and copied then into a folder call Autogen along side its scnery and texture folders (So I now have 3 sub folders in within VFRFRACEPACA. I then over wrote those files in my main augoen folder with the backed up version of those 4 files (re set to Orbx ) Now , if I have understood correctly.. I just have to run that ACM tool and I should be fine IS that correct? Manny

    Prepar3D v4.2 has been released

    I did not update to 4.1 thinking I'll wait for the next. Now, thinking of skipping this 4.2 too. Unless PMDG 747-800 comes out saying it needs 4.1 or 4.2. I am so contended with P3D v4.0 I am enjoying the P3D 64 bit version upgrade ...that is unbeatable! and I am just lazy. :)

    REX Skyforce 3D Released

    OK.. I am on this again and I need some help. Any help would be appreciated. :) I started REX (no AS) and I then started P3Dv4 and am at DFW 1) How do I tell that REX is even connected to P3D? 2) In the sim, i the menu weather, it says I have selected "Fair Weather". 3) the REX says "Weather on standby". 4) Even though I am at DFW.. the aircraft icon on the REX Weather map shows I am somewhere in Kansas 5) I am looking out the window in my house, its cold and gloomy..But ther sim says I have nice weather at DFW. Obviously its the standarrd "fair weather" of the sim that is in effect. REX is is not connected.
