  1. Dan, I removed the 0713 and went back to 0710 as I didn't have time before my flight this a.m. to tweak. I also noticed that in FS9, FMCWP had SIDSTARS in it. I removed them, than ran 0710. I wonder if I would have just removed the SIDSTATS from FMCWP and it would have worked?? Anyhow it works with 0710, I have arrival STARS and APPROACHES in the ARRIVAL page.Thanks,Ken
  2. I too copied 0713 REV3 data from where it was installed in FS9 FMCWP to the PMDG folder. Now enroute to KORD, when pressing the DEP/ARR key on the FMC, STARS appear as NONE and APPROACHES appear as NONE. I am unable to select an approach or runway??? I did not have a problem flying into EGPK.Any ideas?Ken

  4. >Not positive Ken, as I don't use FS9 anymore.

I'll set aside some time next week and try it out.Ken
  5. >Are you running XP w/32 bit?>>>If so, look below, or do a search for quality info on this>subject (search recent posts for '4GB').

  6. Ram is so cheap lately, I couldn't resist purchasing another 2GB of ram. Is it possible to set up FS9 & FSX so they can be both run optimally with 4GB's of ram? If so, could someone be so kind and reply.Thanks,Ken
  7. >Beeing an Nvidia newbie...exactly what is and where do I find>this nHANCER ;) ?>>And yes...sure is a LevelD a/c in the pics :)You can find it here: http://www.nhancer.com/Great program, helped me in FS9 running Squawkbox 3 & FSX with my 8800GTX and the newest beta drivers.Enjoy,Ken

Avari-Cooper BAW0225>http://online.vatsimindicators.net/980091/523.pngCarl, It's in the PMDG>Performance Tuning Window, below the "Virtual Cockpit" display rate tuning selector. You have the option to select - "Enable First Officer Displays" or not. "Some users have reported that disabling the FO displays improves the FPS of the overall simulation." See page 30 of 44 in the "Titles and Menu" PDF included in the 747400 Operating Manual. I have not disabled it myself to give you advice, but I'm confident it will work for you.Good luck,Ken
  11. Someone willing to post in the PMDG Ops area a "How to" on setting up a "Dual Boot" in Windows XP or steer me and others in the right direction where we could find one to do so. Thanks,Ken

  13. Would there be any benefit performance/hindrance wise installing the FSX Acceleration Expansion Pack prior to installing the 747X into a XP SP2 system or not?Thanks,Ken
  14. >Ryan,>>Great shots, thanks, can't wait. What operating system were>these taking in? XP or Vista? If it matters?>>Thanks,>>KenForget it, I see Ryan has been using Vista, since day one. Ken
