  1. Okay got it working. Looking at the log it said it could not find the mcp-config2 file even though it was there. Must have been corrupt or something. Installed it again and no difference. Then downloaded the file again and installed it and everything fine. Strange because there was no zip errors and it was just the profile I re-installed.
  2. I am having troubles. I installed the P3D version of the NGX and at first Linda would not recognise the plane when loaded. I managed to manually load the NGX profile and all the display on the MCP came to life. However nothing I did on it reflects on the plane. I can wind any dial and nothing changes at all. Change it on the plane and the display is updated fine. After a while there starts to be garbage on the display. The COM part of it seems to be working. Using the default FSX profile works with the default planes okay so the panel is working and the coms is working okay. Just wondering if anyone else is using the NXG profile with the P3D version of the PMDG738 and if they have any issues. I know there are changes because the Ezdok cameras I had for the FSX version are misplaced in the P3D version.
  3. Okay thanks. Just said graphics updated to match MCP2 so took that to mean all of them. No worries.
  4. Yep have done that. Double checked it to make sure. Mine is set as MCP2 (Boeing), COM4. However the MCP page still shows the V1 graphics. I have Linda loaded without FSX just to check the setup. Does this matter?
  5. You say graphics have been updated to match MCP2. However on ine the User panel looks wrong. You have a switch just below the mod and rotary. On my MCP2 the rotary has a push button to the right, one underneath it, and one below to the right. Everything else looks good.

    747X ND

    Ah you want the Range Rings. I thought they used to be there but just having had a look I cant say I can find them.Having looked at the 747400gauges.ini in the PMDG directory and found TCAS_ShowRangeRings=0 in the [ND] indicates they might have been but setting this to TCAS_ShowRangeRings=1 does nothing as well.John Veldthuishttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa475.png

    747X ND

    You can have full radius circles on the 744X if you want. Just turn them on. I don't like them myself because the ND/PFD is not big enough to show full detail clearly and everything looks crunched up.John Veldthuishttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa475.png
  8. No, 2GB is just enough and even then it requires the 3GB patch and if you are using Vista then it also requires a separate hot patch for a memory allocation issue that is not available through automatic updates. FSX takes a lot of juice to run well with things turned up. I was using a Dual Core/2GB/NVidia 8800GTX and was getting acceptable results but am now running a Quad Core/4GB machine.John Veldthuishttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa475.png
  9. It is not weather related. I have it everytime I intercept the GS. I would not call it violent though. The nose does pitch up once the intercept is close and engines do come up to speed (more so than the FS9 version ever did) until the intercept at which point everything settles again. If you are low and intercept close to the runway the descent is not really smooth as it takes a bit to stablise.Never noticed this in the FS9 version but is noticable in the FSX version.John Veldthuishttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa475.png

I used to have problems with OOM errors with 2GB (even though not all the mem was used) until I did the fix. Since I did it I have never had one and adding an extra 2GB (3.58GB showing as total) the machine runs even better because it does not use the swap file anymore.I think only the SP2 version had the fix done to the EXE file but that is only 1/2 the story. You have to tell Windows to use it as well.The command for Vista is "BCDEDIT /set increaseuserva 3072" which sets it to 3GBJohn Veldthuishttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa475.png
  11. Have you run the file that was downloaded and installed the livery? Thats all that is needed to do. If you have what path does the installer give? It should be the root directory of where FSX is installed. In my case that is G:Microsoft FlightSimulator XJohn Veldthuishttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa475.png

    737 NGX

    >For any interested readers, although quite pricey, the MCP-PRO>is an excellent product and works extremely well with PMDG>products for FS9.I have to disagree with that comment. I brought one and when I got it had trouble straight away with it locking up the display or even the whole thing. I said this to the place I brought it off and they said deal with the manufacturer. I did so and was told that the version I had been sent (4 days earlier) was an previous revision and that a hardware and software fix was available. I asked if this would fix it and was told they would give no assurances.After 2 months it finally came back and the second flight with it resulted in the same symptoms. Lockups of the display and the unit. I have it on a seperate USB hub that is powered and has high power outputs for plenty of juice.Further e-mails to Go-Flight have gone un-answered ever since.1 not very happy customer.John Veldthuishttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa475.png
  13. I have used the reduced trees file that is around. This gains quite a few fps when there are heaps of trees around. I also cut then back to 800 per cell (from memory)John Veldthuishttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa475.png
  14. Strange, I have almost the same except I have a 8800GTX and only 2GB of memory. I run at much higher screen resolution (1920x1024 from memory)with everything turned up to the max. While I did get the OOM error for a little while once I did the 3GB patch everything has been fine since and I always get 26fps (locked at 26) in the air and since I put my quad core in 16fps on the ground and built up areas.John Veldthuishttp://www.virtualpilots.org/signatures/vpa475.png
