  1. 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?
  2. Do you pay subscriptions annually?
  3. 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?

    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..

    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

    For me, the 77L has too much performance for me to feel satisfied with swapping with the 200ER. I predominantly fly BAV and some routes are performance restricted, which will definitely not be the case for the 77L. I think also with the quantity of 777-200ERs in existence, I felt it justified that PMDG would at least release an expansion for it, my worry, with a declining fleet, it will never get done, and the 200er never feature in our simulators of any quality.

    Out of interest. For the amount of development work that went into the 777 project and for a comparatively low development time to release a 200er. Why didn't it get developed with the 300er? I believe one if the most popular threads ever on avsim with about the 200ER. Kind regards Alex

    PMDG 777-200ER for 2018?

    Hi all, I see a lot of interest, admittedly a little by myself, about the 777-200ER. Can we please have a statement either way about whether PMDG still intend to make this product? In the initial product release, the intro manual stated the 200er will be coming out months after the initial release. And we have had absolutely no word since. It would be sincerely appreciated if we can just have a up to date progress check, either way, whether we will be getting this addon. As a query, if you don't intend to do the differences in performance, please could we have a 200er visual mod (like you did the 747-8 back in the day). Thank you in advance, This is the statement from PMDG on the 200ER on an earlier manual.
  13. Sorry to bump this. Any more ideas? I want to try some vfr flying but orbx england performance is so poor compared to lc
