  1. Great program and very fast, even on my Surface Pro. But I have a couple of questions: EGSS doesn't show any SID procedures. EGTE doesn't show the Class D circle that surrounds it. Is there something further I should be doing to update the data? Many thanks Bill
  2. Hello, I recently bought this program in coordination with my purchase of FS Labs A320X because I'd read that this new plane may cause problems with VAS shutdowns. Until installing DX10 fixer, I'd never had any VAS problems. Ironically, I now have lots of VAS problems. Probably something I'm doing wrong. The reason for my post is that I can't seem to restore DX9. I've followed the instructions but when I run fsx afterwards, the scenery loading screen gets stuck on 80%. I would like to restore DX9 to check whether this improves the situation. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Bill
  3. Can't get the download link on the orblog site to work! Anyone else have this problem.Thanks
  4. The same issue has occasionally arisen for me so I would also be interested to read any feedback on your question.Renzo
  5. Is there anyway to configure the panel switcher so that it defaults to the zoom view of the Captains or First Officers panel when you click the relevant button rather than defaulting to the non-zoom view.I prefer the zoom view and just trying to save myself a button click by having to click twice to bring up the zoom view.Hope someone understands what I am on about.Renzo
  6. Thanks chaps but my fuel dump estimate is way off. 3 or 4 mins to drop 1 minute.Renzo
  7. Hi,I have noticed that when I activate fuel dump on the PMDG 747 and it annotates that it will take 13 minutes until the fuel level reaches the specified amount, 4 minutes later, it says there is still 12 minutes to go etc etc. The whole thing runs slowly. I am sure I am following the correct procedures and would be grateful for any advice.How fast should the fuel be leaving the aircraft and why does the clock and fuel dump appear to run slowly?ThanksRenzo
  8. Indeed, it was the font DPI set to 120.Thanks for your help in sorting this out chaps.Renzo
  9. I have put a screen shot of my PFD problem below if anyone is interested.
  10. Thanks Ron. Please read 'magenta' for 'magnenta'. Don't know where that extra 'n' came from.renzo
  11. I wondered whether someone could give me advice witth some problems I am having.I have a new vista laptop and I have installed the PMDG 737 NG on it.I have remembered to install the updates but I have the following issues:1.On the PFD, the magnenta altimeter reads '100' for both 1000ft and 10,000ft. On my old XP computer, the magnenta would read 1000, 5000, 10,000 etc. This install reads 100, 200 etc.2.On the 'About' screen, my vista version reads something like 2.4 whereas my XP version was something like 3.2. I noticed also that the 'options' screens are different.3. Lastly, and this is not a PMDG issue, can someone tell me where the FS9 joystick assignments are saved because I would like to copy them across to my new installation rahter than start from scratch again.ThanksRenzo
  12. Private message has been sent. Awaiting my download link.ThanksRenzo
  13. Thanks Ryan. Will do this evening. Pigeon already left though.Renzo
  14. I purchased 747X yesterday, with paypal, but have received no download link. I did receive confirmation of Order. I have emailed support with two different email addresses and received no automated response.I have just sent a pigeon with my details to your head office and hopefully he will be with you tomorrow.Yours Renzo Nicoletti
  15. Hello All,The time has come for me to buy a new computer and I would like some advice as to whether I will get away with buying a laptop to run FSX and the new 400X or whether I will only get satisfactory results on a PC.Bear in mind that I would be running the following:FSXPMDG 400XActiveskySqwarkboxWhat sort of specs should I be looking out for and can anyone recommend a particular laptop?ThanksRenzo
