  1. Hello, Thanks for the reply myanezt, but what do you mean exactly? You run two different machines, but you have 2 instances of X-Plane on machine #1 and a third instance on machine #2? I'm glad if it works for you, it would be nice though if it could also connect to the HSI (or whichever instrument) on the master machine. Do you mean that you can only use the GTN to view a moving map/terrain? You cannot use it to connect to autopilot or tune radios,transponder etc.?
  2. Hello Jean-Luc, The goal is that I could use the master machine as the main simulator PC with the scenery view or in VR, and the second machine with a touchscreen to control the GTN750. Using the 750 on the touchscreen machine should also update everything on the master machine and vice versa. I assume this is not possible then since I doubt X-Plane itself could sync all the data of two 750s over network?
  3. Hello, I was wondering if it would be possible to use the GTN 750 over network when running one computer as master and the other as a co-pilot machine? Would it sync all the data and work as expected? So two PCs with the exact same copy of X-Plane and aircraft and GTN750 installed on both machines.

    PMDG 737NGX Livery Availability

    Garuda Indonesia 737-800 WL. They now seem to have lot's of these in their fleet. Personally, I would love it if you would paint the PK-GMC one, as I have a 1:100 desktop model of that plane. I grabbed it at Jakarta airport and was thinking how great it is that we will soon be able to fly this plane "as real as it gets", thanks to PMDGs innovative and highly dedicated team.
  5. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful work with others!
  6. Hello,I just tried the 747 in FS9 to see how the update in FSX package performs, but noticed that there wasnt any new options for altitude callouts or to turn off FO dispays etc. The module said "October 2007" though.Does this mean it didnt install the FS9 update correctly? I tried reinstalling it too with the repair option but that didnt work either.Best regards,

    747 for FSX Framerates

    >I don't necessarily see a performance benefit (hardware>remains the same) but you won't feel any of the restrictions>felt in 32bit operating systems.>>Keep in mind that FSX is STILL a 32-bit application, but at>least the operating system will allocate full memory to its>other applications as well.Thanks,May I ask your opinion though.. Do you as a developer, find vista perform better with 744X under that configuration than XP?I'm currently running XP SP2 on C2D Q6700 and 8800GTX 768MB. If I upgraded my memory to 8GB and to vista64, is it likely I would see any performance benefit?Regards,
  9. Hello all 744X users,Maybe this has been asked before, but I have been thinking of upgrading my RAM to 4-8GB and getting Vista64.I have Core2 Duo 6700, and 8800GTX with 764MB memory.My question simply is, how much better (if any) does the 744X perform with SP2 DX10 support? Especially in VC view. Right now I can get around 22-30fps in XP with some major compromises in graphics. Is there really any benefit for upgrading to Vista64 and getting DX10 support?

    pole crossing/navigation

    Tried it and didnt work perfectly yet. The LNAV and the magenta route line seems to go perfectly fine up to the pole, but after crossing the pole things get crazy. Hopefully in the future it will be possible to cross the poles with LNAV. This time my solution was to use HDG SEL mode to navigate to lower latitudes and then engage LNAV again.
  12. Has anyone tried if it works to navigate through poles in 744X or if theres any major issue to prevent this? Im planning to maybe try this tomorrow, hoping it will work :)

    IRS DC errors

    Just thought I should add that at least for me, the recycling of the knob only helps for few minutes, and then he IRS DC message appears again.Keep up the good work! The 400X is a really great product and after these small fixes will surely get many hours of flying :)

    FSX hangs after selecting 744X

    Hello Ryan,Already checked that and my dll.xml file is all good, all entries there and within the simbase document tag.This mainly seems to happen after already using the 747X and then reloading another version of the aircraft. Sometimes my FSX also just suddenly closes down after I load the aircraft for the first time after starting FSX.If theres any additional information you may need I will try to help you.
