  1. I would absolutely agree with Milton's perspective. All developers may have their own opinion on it, but the one that matters most is that of the customer. mike
  2. Hi Bert,, With that, are you saying you're running your P3D with Affinity Mask=254, i.e. blocking out the 1st core. thx, Mike
  3. Hi Bert, Are you using a texture_bandwidth_mult entry in your Display section of P3D.cfg? thx, mike
  4. Hi Mark, So did the manipulation of the dll & exe .xml files resolve the situation? So prior to abandoning Navigraph, you were able to get the C90GTX running under the addon.xml method? Thanks for the info. Mike
  5. Hello Everyone, I just purchased the C90GTX, with an awareness of this NAV database issue. I anticipated this was primarily a result of adding the aircraft via the addon.xml method. At this point, I’ve installed the aircraft, via the classic FSX method, into the usual SimObjects folder in P3D; all appears to be well. As for the issue with the NAV database loading, has anyone managed to come up with the solution (when using addon.xml). I’m trying to adopt the addon.xml method, so would be great if I could get it running properly in that structure. Thanks, Mike
  6. Hi all, well, I tried a couple things, and results are much better. First, of all, I was missing setting the pitot heater on, so icing surely may have been part of the problem. Secondly, I kept a closer eye on the torque as I was in climbing mode, which I hadn’t even given any thought to previously. Thanks to everyone for the help. It has become evident indeed to better understand the details of getting this aircraft to operate at peak efficiency. Mike
  7. Hello,, wondering if someone can help me on this. During pre-flight prep, I've got both engines at N1 up in the 70s. After takeoff, while climbing, the N1 starts to drop rapidly, and it feels like I'm losing power. My altitude starts dropping, and things start slipping away. I'm sure I'm missing something with the engine configuration, but looking thru the Carenado docs, I'm not finding anything, nor where my mistake might be. Thoughts? Ideas? Are there are good startup/flight checklists out there for the GTX? I've located one for the C90B, but not certain if it applies. Any help surely appreciated. Mike
  8. Waiting on TFDI & their Boeing 717.... Let's go guys,,, coming up on the Holiday Season!! Mike
  9. Hi Gerard, I really like the look of your latest v4 preset..great job! One thing I'd like to try would be to reduce the green-ish look of the grass/fields a bit. As I'm relatively new to the world of PTA Presets & trying to learn as I go, which of your preset items would I be looking to modify? Also, does your latest v4 utilize post-processing? If needed, is there a version that runs w/o the PP? Thanks w/ much appreciation, Mike
  10. I've got an iPad also, and was wondering if you had tried the IOS iFlightplanner app? Just me, or does it seems a lil cleaner/less complicated than FltPlan Go. Mike
  11. Thanks for an outstanding write-up and review of each of the flight planning sites, and also of the iflightplanner app. They not only served as a review, but pretty much a tutorial on how to use each. Great job again, and I'm sure many of us in the community will benefit from that post. Mike
  12. In addition to Little NavMap, are there any other flight planners/apps that generate .gtn files?? mike
  13. Hi Richard,, Ugh,,, which one of the suggestions have given the results you mentioned? Thanks,,, Mike
  14. Hi Steve,, So with a quad-core processor, w/ hyperthreading ON, one would use a AM = 254? Is there functionally any difference between AM 253 vs 254? Mike
  15. I'm also running at 100% GPU usage most of the time with my GTX 960, but I'm wondering if that is actually good for the card itself. Lately I've encountered a few crashes, where the 'Nvidia driver has stopped, but has recovered'. I'm thinking this has to do with the extremely high GPU usage, or if it's more of a driver issue. Never had this type error when I was running FSX, so I'm leaning toward it being a result of P3Dv4 pushing a lot of data to the card. Since, I'm running unlimited frames, might it be an idea to put a limit on it and see how that works. Just a lil edgy with the card running at super-high usage for extended periods. Mike
