    Location of EFB Manual?

    Thank you both!
  2. Hi all, Had a little nosey around, cannot find the EFB manual? I've looked through the introduction manual and it makes specific reference to it, but can't locate it. Alex

    Much better performance in P3D V4.3

    I made my own PTA preset, happy to share if you like. I have ORBX Global and Orbx LC, REX skyforce for textures, AS p3dV4 for weather.

    Much better performance in P3D V4.3

    Hi guys OP here. So, yep a lot of negative press about my video, fine. I maintain that I have a much better experience, I've tested all scenarios, weather, night time and although yes I did pick up the fps counter, I have a smoother experience less stutter. Look, I feel like I am supported by this opinion because there are a small number of specific performance improvements across a number of areas.. There's specific mention to Vc rendering, dynamic lighting etc. This would also support the interview at Las Vegas where Lockheed Martin themselves, said they have ambitons for improved performance due to VR being better at 90FPS. Apologies if the video offended a number of you, I kind of enjoyed flying low and slow across the South East of England.
  5. So I did the same on the understanding that a new client reinstall sets all the shaders to default? (However, everything does indeed look very washed out etc). Do I need to do anything now? Or simply when the pta update comes I can apply a previous config no harm done? Is the sim currently vanilla that I can do a back up of ?
  6. To be honest, to do this every single time to just be able to do a flight is a little extreme for me. Looking into the third party options like Vortex above. Is it worth asking Microsoft of is that just a waste of time?
  7. Do you pay subscriptions annually?
  8. Hi guys Any tips for windows 10 virus protection I have the antimalware running with p3d and it is taking up 30-40% of my CPU usage. I've looked into disabling it without success but one of the articles recommends a different antio virus which is less power consuming?

    PMDG 777-200ER for 2018?

    Jos. That's length of the aircraft not the range......

    PFPX file for 747-8

    Pilots would not use the EFB to calculate a flight plan, so PFPX profile is neccessary for that. The one thing we don't need anymore is a topcat profile, which I can't stress how pleased I am to see PMDG finally model a takeoff/landing performance. Kind regards, Alex

    Is this shimmer normal

    Hi guys, I changed a couple of settings around and now see really bad shimmering. Running a medium/high end pc. The effect looks like the tall thin objects 'sparkle or glitter' Settings

    PMDG 777-200ER for 2018?

    Very simply because the 300ER has an almost identical engine to the 200LR..

    PMDG 777-200ER for 2018?

    Meow. I feel your reply is a little unfair as I was trying to entice debate and discussion. I don't think it's unfair of me to say that you haven't kept the community updated, and it was implied that we would be waiting months. A small update to say that the 200ER slipped would have been great, rather than ignore the subject completely. I appreciate your response, extremely glad it's still on the cards, would appreciate a little less personal dig though ;) Cheers, Alex
