  1. Thanks guys. To be fair, I have no clue what "overclocking the CPU" is or "stock speed and turbo" (does that mean I need to buy something extra?) I have taken away that I should be careful with what monitor I buy. Just generally, when shopping around for the best off-the-shelf PC to run P3Dv4, what is it that I should be looking for? A certain chip type/generation/speed? A certain minimum config for the graphics card? RAM? I really don't know how all those different things play together, I just want to pack a pretty well stuffed P3Dv4 setup on that PC and run it without having to worry about the computer not being to handle it. I have also seen a Medion Erazer X87014, which has i9-9900K, up to 5 GHz 16GB RAM MSI® NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 Ti DUKE, 11GB 1x SSD 512GB 1x HDD 4TB Would that be better, simply because it has more horsepower? I have browsed the forums a bit, but most of the discussions seem to be about specific components for people who build/compose their own PC. Thanks for your precious and valuable adivce!
  2. I run P3D latest version, ORBX and addon sceneries, ActiveSky, PMDG/FSL and so on planes, and lots of AI. I don't have a clue about computers (I don't even know what a motherboard is) nor want to build a computer, I just want to buy something new and run my FS on it smoothly. Here is what I have found: ASUS GL12CX-CH011T i7-9700, 3.6 GHz 16GB RAM NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2070, 8GB 1x SSD 256GB 1x HDD 1TB Makes sense?
  3. I understand how to enter a flightplan waypoint-by-waypoint, but I cannot find a possibility to enter airways between two waypoints. Anyone can help? How can I enter an airway? Thanks, Chris
  4. Hi, I am thinking about purchasing the following PC: ASUS ROG Strix GL12CX-CH004T i7-9700K Memory 16GB NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2080 HDD, 2TB SDD, 256GB Will P3Dv4 run well on this, assuming that I use complex planes (FlightsimLabs, PMDG), add-on sceneries and heavy AI?
  5. Hi, I have an issue with runway data for an airport; I use Navigraph data. On a recent flight EDDF-SBGL I could not select any runway for SBGL: no runway nor any STARs were listed. I had previous received an FMS alert saying that there was an issue with runway 14 at SBGL. That runway does not even exist (and precisely that could be the source of error: some bogus runway with bogus data is in the database, screwing up all the rest). Does anyone have the same problem? Any ideas how to fix this? The problem seems to persist, I have experienced it for the current AIRAC cycle as well as the previous one. Thanks for any help, Chris
  6. Very exciting! Indeed I would love for them to throw in a SP.
  7. Wow, thank you!! I'll try this out immediately. Thanks, Chris
  8. I have installed Imaginesim's Delhi airport scenery. The ADE file excludes Terminal 2. Is there any ADE somewhere that does *include* it? Terminal 2 has been refurbished and is now used by Goair, so I would like to use that in my sim as well. Thanks. Chris
  9. Hi, I plan to do some ultra long range flights and have the problem that flying the airways/navaids along the great circle route or close to it is not the optimal route. Prevailing winds may make another route, possibly thousands of miles away, a better choice. For instance, Delhi-San Francisco great circle route goes North over Western China, to the Kazakh-Mongolia border, the Central Siberian Plateau and out to the East Siberian Sea, touching the American continent at the North-Western tip of Alaska, along the Alaska/Canada West Coast down to California. However, the route really flown by planes is about 3,500 miles further South for the Delhi-San Francisco route, going over Myanmar, the Beijing region, Southern Japan and over the Pacific. The San Francisco-Delhi flights route go the other way around, heading North-East toward Alberta and Baffin Island in Canada, Greenland, the Northern tip of Norway, slightly East of Moscow, down into Kazakhstan and Afghanistan, and on to Delhi. The reason is of course weather/winds (there are slight variations to these routings, but it's always in a corridor around these routes). And there are plenty of routes who fly far away from the GCR Now: all the tools for flight simulation that calculate routes automatically try to match the GCR. But with the wind patterns that wouldn't be the best route. Is there any tool (desktop app or online) that finds routes optimizing for wind and weather? Thanks, Chris
  10. Not having the software install everything that it needs to run is one thing (not nice, but I can live with it). But then having a sticky in the forum which is difficult to understand because the author didn't even bother separating sentences with the appropriate interpunctuation or even better bother with making it a step-by-step indication with a separate line for every step is something I struggle with. The programming work is fantastic, but one can see it was done by somebody whose outstanding qualities in programming, understanding of ATC and great passion for his work are more developed than his ability to explain to "normal" people how to fix certain things. A pity actually. May I suggest to jd or someone else to re-formulate the sticky or make it two stickies (one for 64bit user,, one for 32bit) and explain things like this: 1. Do this 2. Do that 3. CLick this Rather than all in one sentence with things that many people obviously have trouble understanding. I am a computer USER, not a an informatics geek
  11. I downloaded the Tinmouse two days ago and since spent time discovering. Great product!!!At first I struggled with the autopilot, but the manual that is linked in the FAQ proved helpful. As for the other functions, I am fine (almost 10 years of simming experience start to show), EXCEPT these two:1. On the autopilot. I am confused. Basically what I want is the following: after takeoff, engage the elevator control mode of the AP and have the AP fly a VS that I choose. For some reason I cannot find a way to set the VS that I want the AP to fly. So I have to hand-fly the vertical navigation myself, using only the FD's instruction.So what is it that I am missing? Do I have to handfly the plane all the way to its cruise altitude, or have I simply missed the button/wheel that allows me to set desired VS?2. On EPR control. I use the PDCS to calculate the EPR limits and the bugs slide on the EPR gauge. Fine so far. But then, is there a way for the throttles to respect those limits automatically or do I have to manually control throttles all the way myself, using the bugs only as visual assistance? In other words, is there something like a semi-autothrottle that makes sure I don't exceed the limits calculated by the PDCS?Thanks a lot for any hints and congratulations for this great plane. I have used all payware planes (PMDG, PSS, Ready-for-pushback, Feelthere, Maddog, Dreamfleet, etc) but this one presents a new, welcome challenge!CheersChris
  12. Since the website isn't accessible any more, I was wondering how to download the files from what used to be the "user edits" part of the site with all the repaints not included in the PSS installer? Specifically I am looking for a repaint of the Austrian 777.Thanks.
  13. Interesting discovery: I planned a route from Toronto to Singapore. I used FSBuild, exported the plan into FSNav, made some corrections (SID, STAR) and then exported the plan to FS9.When I wanted to load the plan as an IFR plan, I could select it - but it didn't load. I first thought that there was a format error, then maybe a waypoint that confuses FS9, until I had the hunch that it might be the fact of flying close to the North Pole which might case the problem. And indeed: I cut the route in two, one part ending at an airport on my route in Northern Canada, the other part starting on my route in Nothern Russia. FS9 has no problem loading these flight plans.It's a bit awkward of course as the clearance I was getting from Toronto was one to that small airport in Canada rather than to Singapore. And I'll also have to load a second IFR plan when I'm over Russia. And I won't have any ATC following me between the two airports. But it's a workaround.Having said that, my PSS 777-200LR didn't have a problem with that route.I guess the reason is that at some point along the route the magnetic headings "inverse" or at least get mixed up. The 777's FMC will work off the GPS and simply fly to a point rather than follow a heading. (Badly expressed that last point but I think you understand what I want to say).Any similar experiences on your flights around the Pole(s)?
  14. Can anyone tell me which liveries come with the Dreamfleet 727 product? There's no list on their website, or at least not in an obvious location.ThanksChris
  15. I bought the Maddog 2004 about a year ago, I merged it with JCA and all worked fine. I had installed V1.50 and the upgrade to v1.51I then wanted to make some space on my hard disk, so I de-installed the Maddog, using the de-install routine.Now I re-installed it: re-downloaded the installer files from the Lago page. I then also installed latest AIRAC by running the PMDG AIRAC install utility downloaded from Navigraph. But now, everytime I select the Maddog in the aircraft selection field in FS, FS crashes to desktop. THe same thing happens when I select a merged JCA plane. Crash to desktop. I have de-installed and re-installed several times, always the same result. I have not changed the default flight (Cessna at Seattle), and I have tested the MD80 without changing any settings, just select the plane. But also at other airports, other times of day the crash occurs. Also, worth to note that the JCA planes without the Maddog panel runs fine.Can anyone advise me what to do? Some possible explanations:1) Maybe the de-installation did not properly remove all the files that need removing? 2)Maybe there is a conflict with other planes? I also run the following add-on planes with their own panels:PSS A320, A330, A340, Dash8, B777, B757PMDG B737, B744, B1900Feelthere ERJ, B737Aerosoft ATR, AvroCLS A340-500, A340-600Ready-for-pushback B747-200Level D B767Fokker F70, F100as well as the CRJ panel fom SkyviewOn top of that, repaints from POSKY, Premieraircraft, Dreamfleet, etc. Is anyone aware of incompatibilities?3) Could it be something with the sound files? I have made the experience that FS crashes once the battery sound starts. 4) Incompatibilities with other add-ons? FSNav, AS6, sceneries, ...? But then, I had all of these installed already last time that Maddog worked without a problem.ThanksChris
