  1. Marcus, I have done some more testing and only seem to get this problem with flying the Maddog (I have tried with several A2A aircraft, the PMDG DC-6, Flysimware FA50 etc). The problem only happens with the Maddog, and it starts about 20 minutes into a flight (before this the performance is fine). Once it kicks in, every time I move the mouse in the flightdeck I get big stutters. If I don't touch the mouse and look around it is fine. Did you have this problem with all aircraft?
  2. Is there a possibility of updating the FA50 so that the yoke continues to move with the autopilot? It is a bit of an immersion killer when you sit in the fantastic 3D cockpit in VR (and it really is stunning, I think it is my favourite flightdeck in VR) and the aircraft begins a turn but the yoke doesn't move. Thanks for the great aircraft! Neil
  3. I posted this in the P3D forum, but thought I would also try here 🙂 I recently upgraded from a Rift S to the G2 and have been having a few strange issues with VR in P3D v4.5. After about 30 minutes flying I am getting big stutters every few seconds. I spent a lot of time trouble shooting and have narrowed it down to the mouse (yes I know, weird). When I move the mouse around the cockpit to interact with switches the stuttering occurs. The minute I let go of the mouse it stops (even with the white dot curser still showing on the screen). When this occurs the Steam VR graph (which normally has orange/red lines) has black blank areas corresponding to the stutters. Also, in task manager the GPU graph showing GPU usage spikes downwards everytime a stutter happens. I never had this problem with my Rift S using the Oculus option in P3D v4.5 Anyone got any suggestions?

  5. A very late reply, but I managed to do it (after much searching and some help from RealityXP). As I don't own the Flight 1 GPS, I couldn't use the wizzard tool to replace the Flight 1 (as PMDG manager didn't let me install the Flight 1 without owning it - option was greyed out). However, if you just put a blank text file in the gauges folder and rename it "f1gtn.dll" you can the load up the DC-6 with the Flight 1 650 (which will just be a blank screen) and then use the RealityXP wizzard to replace it with the RealityXP 650 (make sure to tick the no bezel option). The only things that will not work are the buttons on the bezel, but I have programmed a button on my throttle quadrant to do the direct to function! I know this reply is late, but it might help someone in the future and save them 2 days of searching (which it took me)
  6. I'm still really struggling with this. I use Navigraph, and unfortunately they don't have a windows APP (which I believe you can then import into P3D). You can view the desktop Navigraph program in P3D, but you always need the P3D view to be able to use the mouse in the cockpit, so if you maximise Navigraph and then import it into the VR virtual cockpit, you can't use the mouse in the actual cockpit. There must be a way of viewing charts. As Matt says, FlyInside (which I used for a while) allowed you to open any program inside VR and resize and move it really easily. I am yet to find a solution with the G2.
  7. I am loving the G2. As a long time oculus user (CV1, Rist S) I find the G2 to deliver better resolution with better performance. Things are much clearer than the Rift S, and in P3D v4.5/Assetto Corsa/Euro Truck sim things are a lot smoother. I have just stated playing Half Life Alyx and my mind is truly blown. It is so smooth yet so clear. Shows what can be achieved with software specifically written for VR. I have a modest system (6700k @ 4.6 and a 1080) but still get good results. Hopefully, if my 3080 Ever turns up things will improve further. One final point. The audio solution of the off ear phones is also superb. Blows the Rift S away!
  8. This sounds really interesting. Can you use the Navigraph software as a window?
  9. Just upgraded from my Rift S to the G2 and I now really need some way of displaying my Navigraph charts inside the headset. My Rift S had the nose piece removed so I could peer under the headset at the monitor (although this was a bit of an immersion killer). The G2 doesn't allow you to remove the nose piece (unless you tear it off the adhesive permanently) plus I would like to keep the immersion. My maddog has a lovely built in EFB which displays the charts, but my PMDG DC-6 and all my A2A GA stuff doesn't. I would kill for a addon EFB which could be used in all aircraft. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to view charts in P3D v4.5 with a G2?
  10. Thanks so much, that seems to have done the trick. Off for a quick test flight!
  11. Hi, I did post in an old thread on the other forum (430), but thought I would ask here. Has anyone got the GTN 650 working with the PMDG DC-6? I can get it installed in the 2D window, but I fly VR and would really need it in the virtual cockpit. The PMDG options page gives the option to install the F1 version (which I suppose you could then replace using the wizzard), but as I don't have the F1 version I am unable to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Neil
  12. Sorry to resurrect this old topic. I love flying the DC-6, and have been trying to install the GTN650 into the Virtual Cockpit. I am not having any luck using any of the methods. Carrying out the steps above I am now able to have the 2d panel (window7), but I can't use the functions in the VC. The best I could install is the bezel-less version into the VC (which is not great), but touching the screen just opens the popup. If I also had the F1 GTN I could install that first through PMDGs options page and then replace it with the RealityXP? But as I do not have the F1 version this option is greyed out. Is there anyway to have the 650 working in the VC (without the popup window - I fly in VR)? Thanks Neil
  13. Personally, I struggle with the flysimware FA50. It is one of my favourite aircraft but is not very well optimised. Where I can fly the Maddog and the DC6 and all A2A aircraft (not to mention Manfred Jahn’s fantastic DC3) smoothly on my system using the Rift S, I have given up with the FA50. Too much of a stutter fest. I did post on their forum about maybe improving performance, but got a fairly short answer. Pity, as I love the aircraft!
  14. I already posted this in the P3D forum, but though I would try my luck here: Does someone (a lot more clever than me) know how to install the reality XP - 750 gauge into Manfred Jahn's brilliant DC-3?As the Sperry is still inop, there is a lovely big retangular space in the VC to put the GTN-750. I can install it into the pop up window, but this kind of kills immersion in VR.I've had a quick look at the panel.cfg, but not being an expert, I can't work out how to edit anything to replace the INOP sperry gauge with a GTN-750.Thanks for any help in advance,

I have had so much fun out of this DC-3 in the past, a big thank you to all involved!!!!!
