    Floating Buildings!!!

    I have a big problem in P3Dv4.3. Everything that isn't an addon airport the land is covered in a light blue and the buildings are floating!! No idea how this has happened. [see image linked below] It effects the whole FS world not just a specific location. Also when the flight it loading once it gets past the black screen while it's loading (at around 80-90%) and you can see the VC but it's still loading, the ground textures look fine that all of a sudden just before 100% loaded it changes to the messed up version. It basically looks like the whole FS land has sunken. Any help MUCH appreciated. https://imgur.com/a/tUEh4x3 Andy S

    A/T disconnected with rudder twist

    Interesting given that my joystick is only about 6 weeks old. Nonetheless I will give all these helpful hints a try and hopefully I'll be flying trouble free. Andy Solaini

    Mike I see what you are saying but I think it's very unlikely that I'm accidentally nudging the throttles. I say this because they aren't really in a position where you'd nudge them and also the fact that it happens on every takeoff I do with the 777 makes me think it's unlikely I would nudge it by accident every time.

    Thanks very much for that Thomas I will try it on my next flight. Andy Solaini

    Actually not there are not fully forward. I advance throttles to 60% N1 to let the stabilise then hit TOGA but leave the throttles where they were. So not at idle but not fully forwards. This is the technique I have used in about 10 years of simming and it's only on the 777 that it throws up a problem, the NGX I do the same but it's fine, for example. Maybe it's just that the 777 is more advance and realistic? Andy Solaini

    No you didn't come across as harsh Thomas. I probably didn't explain it well in my initial post but the throttles retard and the message on the PFD says something like "throttle hold" but I can't remember the exact wording. Maybe I will re-read the tutorial flight as it's been a long time since I read it. I might have missed or forgotten something... Andy Solaini

    Yes I think it would be somewhere around 80 knots. I thought it was probably something the 777 was doing deliberately rather than a bug in the software. It's a bit annoying thought because I either have the throttle problem or I end up going off the runway if there is any kind of wind on the plane. PS - I have done the tutorial and it was informative but doesn't deal with this issue I am having. Andy Solaini

    A/T disconnected with rudder twist

    I have a Saitek Cyborg Fly 5 joystick with a twist grip for the rudder. I use this to keep on the centre line during the takeoff roll in the 777. However when I get up some speed and need to twist the rudder to keep in line it always put the A/T into hold mode rather than keeping in TOGA. Is this a known problem and are there any solutions? This only happens with the PMDG 777 and no other addons I have including ones from PMDG. Thanks for any help. Andy Solaini

    Wilco E170/190 Very Low FPS

    I know you don't support W7. I bought the ERJ when I had my old computer that was on XP. I was only trying a reinstall on W7 to see if it would work. I just thought the odd "sorry we don't support W7" or something similar would have made for a better tone in the reply, not the rather blunt ones given. Oh well....ERJ will be uninstalled and I, and others I guess, will just have to leave it at that. :( Andy S

    Wilco E170/190 Very Low FPS

    Scobie I have a native install of W7, NOT an updgrade. I have read other threads on this and similar topics in various forums with regard to Wilco/feelthere products and the responses mostly have the feeling of the developers being quite hostile towards people asking such questions. A couple of examples from just this thread: Not quite friendly customer service. I have read that line over and over in other threads. The fact that most others and not having problems is of little use as I/we ARE having problems. Andy S

    Still not solved this so a quick little bump. Andy S

    Mack - I don't have the rotating beam enabled. All the refresh rates are at dufault settings. Andy S
  14. I just reinstalled the Wilco E-jets add-on on my new computer and went for a spin. The FPS was really bad, much worse than on any other add-ons I have. My computer is new and pretty powerful....I get 50-70 FPS in PMDG 737/MD11 etc with full clouds, AI etc etc at Heaathrow Extreme. I was in the E190 at Manchester DEFAULT scenery and got only 7-20 FPS in the E190! :( Is this a known problem with the E-Jets and is there a fix for it? What are other people getting for FPS? I will say I am running it on Windows 7 64-bit. I know the Digital Aviation Fokker had a low FPS bug with Windows 7, could this be something similar? It has to be some error as it's so much lower FPS than the PMDG/LDS add-ons I have and also I have read most people are getting very good FPS in the ERJ even with two year old computer. Andy S
  15. Will either of these run FS9 well? Which is best? They are both
