  1. Hi Jevon, as you probably remember, you recently sent me your mod. Unfortunately due to family matters i haven´t been able to install it untill yesterday evening. Everything went well and i followed your instructions to the letter. Long story short, i´ve been fiddling around with it a bit and everything looks fine, the GTN integrates nicely. As i´m not a real world pilot and have never been on a CJ2 i can´t comment on the modified air-file, anyway i did a short test flight and it felt very convincing. The only (minor) issues i found is that : 1.- i can´t seem to hear the window bleeds and Air conditioning systems 2.- I´ll have to find a way to get a GTN750 Popup (doesn,t work for me) As i stated above, bothe are minor issues and the don´t bother me too much. The immersion though, is great. I´ll do a complete reinstall (Original CJ2 and your mod) then, test again. Maybe, something went wrong moving files. Other than that, i really appreciate the hard work you (and the other involved persons) have put in this proyect and making it avaible for free to us I´ll report back after reinstall. All the best, Lars
  2. "I think that SimWings and MK Studios cover the entire island, but the Digital Design version is only the airport and immediate surroundings?" Hi Christopher, yes you are right. I don´t own all three versions (only the MK-Studios one), so i might not be the best choice to give you advice. But, If you are a "Night-Flyer", go for the MK-Studio, their night lighting is superb in terms of realism and immersion, while the Simwings (at least their GCLP) is NOT and has been complained about in the Aerosoft forum. All you see is a kind of "washed out terrain" with bright patches and no street lights. Long story short : it looks very unrealistic, so is their GCTS, afaik. I make this comment as someone living on the Canary Islands for 35 years and travelling very often between the Islands and i have made many real world "night flights" between islands, hence my statement on realism. If you have the MK-Studio GCRR or GCFV scenery, you will see what i mean. Both look absolutely great (and realistic) during day and night. Performance is also outstanding. Another "plus" is that MK-Studios is currently working on GCXO, (soon to be released, hopefully), otherwise you can grab the RFScenery Design GCXO wich fits in nicely deactivating a few files). I would not consider Digital Design because of the reason you already stated (it only covers surroundings of the airport) and honestly i don´t know how it works with other terrain add-ons. And before starting a "flame-war" : i´m a proud supporter of all three developers and own many if not all of their sceneries and i really enjoy all of them, except Simwings-GCLP at night 😉 Now i´ll let other users to chime in ! Regards, Lars
  3. Paul, there was no info ! It caught me by surprise as well. For now, the only way is to check your VERTX account. But I agree, it would be nice to receive a notification and to have a "change log", at least. Anyway, many thanks to Sean and his team for making this already great aircraft even better 🙂
  4. Thank you Rudi, good to know. This lovely aircraft is getting better and better ! Btw., your videos are great, very informative and a nice addition to the "theoretical-stuff" in the manuals. Regards
  5. Hi, i´m just downloading the new installer and i´m seeing versión "1.052". Just wondering as Sean confirmed versión 1.050. Has anything else changed ? 😊 Regards
  6. Hi Stu, in first place, i´m no expert but i´d suggest you to check your "Autogen draw distance"-slider. Just reduce it a bit and check results. In my case, doing so gave me a significant increase in performance, also those annoying stutters are gone, very noticeable especially with "heavy iron" aka FSLABS, PMDG. Obviously what i mentioned above is highly depending on your hardware and other graphic / terrain / lighting options you might run on your P3D-setup. So, long story short: experiment with different options, try to find the best balance between "eye-candy" and performance. Please, all you P3D-Gurus chime in and correct me if i´m wrong. 🙂 (You´ll find a lot of useful information, tips and tricks to get the most out of your simulator here on the avsim forum, just do a quick search). Good luck ! Lars
  7. Of course ! i must have been blind, thought their website was dead . Thank you so much :) Regards, Lars
  8. Hi Gents, stupid question : where can i get the native P3D4 installer for the Turbine Duke ? I haven´t seen any announcements here ! Regards, Lars
  9. You´re welcome, i´m in the same boat as you and came across this post in their forum : http://flightbeam.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2812 Lars
  10. Just send an email to support@flightbeam.net with your proof of purchase and they will send you a one-time download link for the updated installer . Regards, Lars
  11. Hi Gents, i had the same issue as you and opened a Support-ticket. They quickly replied my email and told me that they´ll be releasing a versión that supports all latest PMDG-updates, shortly.
  12. Hi David, great work, thanks for your contribution. I´m also running P3D 3.4 on a "Middle of the road PC" and had a hard time configuring my setup to run smoothly with "Heavy Iron" and complex scenery. Finally, i found my sweet spot and i´m very happy. Reading your guide, i see that my settings and procedures are very similar to yours. One question though, would you mind letting us know your Nvidia Control Panel / Nvidia Inspector settings? Regards, Lars
  13. Just dial a heading and right click on the heading selector :smile:
  14. Daedalus, don´t know if this might help you or others, but i can tell you what i have running on my P3D V3.4 system. (See System specs in my signature) : Orbx with all the bells and whistles, AS2016+ASCA,EZCA,loads of payware Airports (Flytampa, Taxi2Gate, UK2000, etc) PMDG NGX+777, Majestic Dash, and so on.... I´m not using Nvidia Inspector, but using DSR instead, ingame AA, Vsync on, Triple Buffer on, frames unlimited. Usually i get around 40-50 fps, smooth and no stutters with PMDGs and dense scenery settings and that´s what i get with the TFDi as well. Lars
  15. Absolutely agree with Rob, a few hours ago i posted my concerns about this aircraft, finally i took the plunge and bought it. It´s really great and performs smooth as silk on my setup. Despite having a few quirks already reported here and in their forum i don´t regret this purchase and can actually recommend it. The only thing i´m missing is a tutorial flight in their documentation, but maybe they´re working on it to be released at a later stage. Ok folks, i´m off for my next flight :smile: Lars
  16. To be honest, i don´t know what to do, i was about to purchase this puppy at release, but their server problems unfortunately (or should i say fortunately) prevented me from doing so, finally went to bed. Now i´m reading about so many performance problems here and also in their forum, so i´m pretty concerned and not really sure if i should spend 60 bucks for this addon. Guess i´ll hold off for a while and wait for peoples´ feedback. While i´d love to hit the "buy" button right now, my common sense says "NO" Hope to see some positive comments here soon, specially regarding performance. Maybe this helps me to make the right decision. Lars
  17. Also , bare in mind that the Aerosoft version uses the "Airport Controller Module" and that is giving headaches to quite a lot of people (including myself) and yes, i second what Dan mentioned : the Aerosoft Support leaves a lot to be desired, to say the least. I´m with FSDT, never had problems with it and stay away from Aerosoft if possible. Regards, Lars
  18. Just delete your camera.cfg file, P3d will build a new one the next time you start it or run the EZCA-Configurator and let it do its job, this will fix your issue. Regards, Lars
  19. First, let me say that i really enjoy this software and i have successfully configured my cameras, even imported my EZCA-views (works great by the way). I´m also eagerly following this forum but couldn´t find a topic related to what i´m about to write, so please ignore, if this is already covered. It would be great to have a "selective save" function, let me explain what i mean : Example : I want to change my turbulence settings and accidentally panned around, so changed my default viewpoint, wich i had already saved and was happy with, in this case, hitting the "save" button would also update/save the new viewpoint and that´s what i don´t want, so having the ability to save a setting in either "turbulence"/"advanced" or "camera" of a certain preset, independently of each other. It´s by no means a "dealbreaker" but it would be nice if you could consider implementing this feature. Thanks and regards, Lars
  20. Unfortunately i´m having the same problem. I really hope they find a solution for this issue, soon. Regards, Lars
  21. "You'll be pleased to know even though ChasePlane stops the 'OTHER' software from auto starting it is easy to go back to in case you run into any issues so you don't have to uninstall." Hi Ben3083, yesterday i purchased Chaseplane and can´t wait to try it, would you mind elaborate on how Chaseplane stops the "OTHER" software without uninstalling and how to revert changes ? I´m asking, cause i know that the "OTHER" software modifies the camera.cfg and places hotkey entries in all aircraft. Cheers, Lars
  22. That´s the next step, thank you. Sorry, shouldn´t have posted my issue here. Regards, Lars
