    01SEP07: So What Happens Next? (Repost)

    hmmm bit of a surpise! from reading the previous updates from Robert i thought the decision was pretty much final that the MD-11 would not be FS9 compatible. Nice to see that that stance has changed, i wont need to shell out for a new PC :)Although does this not raise considerable issues with regards to FSX and future PMDG products? I cant remember an FS release that got so much negativity within the flight sim community. Usually i would be first in line to get my hands on a new FS but with so much change happening with regards to operating systems and directx i found FSX's release date to be a bit bizarre. Why not wait until the new iteration of OS, graphical and processor improvements stabilise before releasing such a performance draining program.Anywho ill be waiting eagerly for the MD-11 cheers PMDG! :)

    PMDG Angle Of Attack DVD

    From what ive seen its nothing to do with PMDG other than he is using the product to make a training DVD

    So how goes the MD-11?

    well FSX seems to be getting a bashing all over the place , the reviews havent been good and its been forgotten about by simmers in my opinion. All this Vista press etc it just shows that FSX was released at the wrong time in my opinion. Regards the MD-11, yeah i suppose its been a looooong time in development but then again what do i know about the length of time it takes to develop a new aircraft for a flight simulator, the answer to that is zilch! But i happen to agree about extras for the 747-400 its by far the biggest achievement in flight simulation to date and PMDGs best work.

    Thanks PMDG!

    Great read Stuart. Im green with jealousy :) hopefully i might get to travel across the water to take a ride in one as we dont have any here on the Emerald Isle :)
  8. IGN are reporting issues with audio. Apparently Microsoft has completely rewritten its audio from the ground up therefor my Creative Labs 5.1 card is rendered useless unless new drivers are released. Not sure how this will tie into FShttp://pc.ign.com/articles/759/759538p1.html

    Captain Carter bored of 747?

    Well i cant really add anything in terms of the cockpit design as i dont have a clue about aircraft design :) The ITVV DVD is a gem for 747 fans like myself. Flying the PMDG model on FS9, the cockpit never feels cluttered. The design doesnt look aged in my opinion, my only comparison is from the ITVV A330 dvd where the cockpit looks steely and cold...again just my opinon. I remember jon saying on this forum that the long hours and staying in hotels and being away from the family can take its toll. I guess flying from London to San Fransico all the time i can see how a pilot might feel home sick.

    Gettin' ready for DX10

    Are microsoft releasing a Vista edition of FSX? i thought i read that a while back..might make more interesting hardware requirements. Also i guess for running PMDG aircraft a little extra grunt from the CPU and Graphics is needed

    Gettin' ready for DX10

    good topic. Its a wait and see game for me, personally i dont really want to spend any money at the moment on upgrading. Ill wait a few months until the new windows and the new batch of graphics cards come in. Nice research Sam!

    PMDG MD-11 shown in Switzerland *UPDATE*

    why cant we all just get along? :) Personally i think PMDG should put an end to forums , although it acts as good customer interation rarely do i see anything that i actually like to contribute to. We get some new information about an exciting new product and straight away Ryans posting to ask people to cool it. Doesnt really make much sense to me...i guess thats the level of expectancy some users have, they need information now not later. PMDG keep up the good work, for every locked thread and deleted post there are others paying attention to what your saying :)
