    A2A Cessna 172 now available

    First, I have not flown this airplane...hence my questions in another thread. However, I can say in the airplane that I fly, if you set the trim to the T/O mark it flies all by itself on takeoff and requires considerable forward pressure on the yoke to keep the nose down. I'm flying this weekend....I'll try and get a video.

    I have the same experience. I good dose of nose down trim works well for me in pretty much every configuration/weight. I generally put it about a thumbmail above the TO reference marker in the real plane.

    A2A's new 172 - torque not modelled?

    A couple of questions. I just got my PPL-ASEL license in a 180HP 172G. In this particular airplane, I do need substantial right rudder to stay on the centerline during the takeoff roll. On a soft-field even more is needed once the nosewheel gets off the ground due to p-factor. Here are the questions... 1. If Torque, Slipstream, and gyroscopic precession are not modeled, is P-factor accurately modeled? 2. Is ground effect modeled? (i.e. can I perform an accurate soft field takeoff or any landing) 3. Are stalls modeled? Power on/off and level/turning flight 4. If so, does a power-on stall produce a typical wing drop? P-factor modelling?

    Haha...classic! However, this thread has survived for years without vitriol...hopefully, we can keep it that way.

  6. I haven't seen an issue on my current setup (using BP=0) and using bloom. I think the problems arise when using too many "things" (like autogen, bloom plugin, unlimited frames, etc.) that basically overwhelm the video card.I found this out the hard way, and you definitely know when you hit the wall... The entire system will crash and reboot.

  8. Upon further testing, I still have not seen a crash when alt-tabbing (tried out the JS41 which is a constant offender). I tried various permutations of your tweaks along w/ Nick's guide, and I've found the best balance for my setup is per Nick's guide for nhancer/fsx menus and your tweaks in fsx.cfg.I did find that leaving bufferpools = 200000000 on my gtx260 caused texture flashes to go away that I got when set to 0. Nice work again....glad a had some time to play with it tonight.Thanks!
  9. Interestingly, I went back to my old fsx.cfg just to compare, and I couldn't force a crash there either. Is that shader line a one-time reload? Could that be the issue? I need to try a few long distance flights to see what results I get. Thanks again for this!
  10. I don't know why, but these changes solved my alt-tab texture issues. I will try it with a few different aircraft, but so far so good.I have my nHancer setup per Nick's instructions and did not make any changes there. Thanks!
  11. I've always used 1024 and have always seen this issue unless I turn off ice effects visible from inside the VC.
  12. If it's sort of a flashing "wall" in the VC, then this has been reported by a number of people on this forum. The solution is to open the JS41 configuration tool and set virtual cockpit model options to Medium.Unfortunately, this seems to be regardless of hardware and does not happen to everyone. I'm running an i7 920 @ 4.0GHz and have seen this issue using both an 8800gt and 5870 (no crossfire or sli).Hope this helps.
  13. Hey Bryan,I poked around the site and didn't see it, but do you release the manuals for free download? I'd like to just have a read through at how everything works.Thanks!Jeff
