  1. i just installed an I9-9900kf to an Asus Z390-Plus MB....It makes my 4.5 look pretty good,and I'm happy with it ...but after seeing and hearing great things about vs 5.1....I'm beginning to get 2nd thoughts about upgrading. My hanger now consists of small GA planes and assorted turbo-prop liners that I purchased because they were rated for P3dv4. Now...if I dive into v5.1.....will I be able to take that hanger with me....or will it remain with v4.5...???
  2. I've just dropped an i9-9900k onto an asus z390 MB with the intent of an overclock. I am running P3Dv4.5 with a GSX 1080Ti..... What I'm wondering is if an OC on the 9000K will produce any better scenery 'eye candy' to my sim ??? I'm getting pretty good ground textures with ORBX and UTX ....but would an OC be more beneficial for these ground efx ??? If anybody has screenshots 'before and after' OC'ing their 9900k....I'd appreciate the advise.... I've heard the advantage to an OC.is the better frame rates....Is that all I will expect with P3Dv4.5.???? Thanks for any advice Skip d
  3. Hiys guys... Thinking about going from 4.5 to 5.1....BUT... Can I take my Aircraft from 4 to 5...???...several paywares and default's also....love 4.5 but would like to try 5.1....but with the planes I've been used to flying !! Just wondering if it's worth the transfer.. Thanks for any opinions Skip d
  4. I'm using P3dv4.5. Can I carry the aircraft from 4.5 to 5.0 ?? Thanks
  5. Got it !!! Turn off A/P first.... I'ma dummy
  6. My sim is P3dv4.5 ....and just recently have I encountered this strange behaviour. Doesn't matter what plane I'm flying,when I reach the altitude I need,I turn on the A/P....but when releasing the ALT.button in order to descend the aircraft suddenly flares up and climbs into a stall. Is there some procedure I'm missing. I've searched in vain to find an answer !! Thanks for any help... Skip d
  7. I have been trying for weeks now to try to get ANY type callout program to work on my P3Dv4.5. I really miss the guy/gal telling me how close I am to CRASHING....I don't like the "Pull-up....Pull-up" or the "Terrain...Terrain"... messages constantly ...I would just like to hear a soothing voice telling me 100...50....25...10....touchdown.... !!! I have tried all the recommendations as far as Doug Dawsons new sound file for x64......and i'm TOTTALLY confused on the proper method on how to set it up for each aircraft. It's not that I'm desperate, but more determined to have a working system....and I know there are guys who have been able to make the FSX Callouts work in P3Dv4. Please fill me in on the procedure....right now I'm dumbfounded and totally helpless !!!! Thanks for your time and assistance Skip D

    Hi Guys... Has any one been able to download the original ISG1 Gauge set using P3Dv4,5. Sim Market is the sole source for the piece. They offer ISG1 for fs9; ISG1 for fsx; !SG 186 and ISG 186 x64. I thought the right one to go with would be ISG 186 x64. All it gave me after extraction was "isg.gau" plus there are no "Read me" files..nor ANY documentation. The fsx one gave me an installer,but it would not accept the serial number on my receipt. I've posted several messages on the ISG1 Support Forum....but haven't heard from anybody since 9/26. I thought this would be the next best place to seek advice. Hope I can get this figured out with your help !! Thanks Skip D
  11. Jim....Thanks for the info.... Sorry it took so long to reply...my wife made me go with her to see Yellowstone Nat'l Park....just now getting back to Va. and getting rid of jet and bus lag !!! I was able to contact Ernie and he sent me a revision to my panel.cfg file. I put his revision in....but nothing happened. No change to the A321 PFD. I sent him this info....but he has not responded since Mon. (I think he must be really busy) I read the tutorial he offers on the forum...but got no positive result there either... Any suggestions....(or just be patient and hope Ernie can help??) Skip d
  12. Hi guys... I figured that if I wanted to get a correct answer to my question,the this forum would be the logical choice since there is a huge wealth of helpful info available. And just about every problem I've had since FS9 thru P3Dv4.5 I've been able to pick from among all the helpful suggestions....with one or more being the correct solution. Anyway....I just bought Ernie Alston's ISG1 set of gauges;dowloaded the ISG.64zip. Extracting it reveals isg187_x64. when this is opened I get isg1.gau. Now I'm scratching my head...Where the heck does this go??? There's no "Read Me" file....and I'm stumped !!! So I figure if I register at the ISG Forum....surely I'll get on the right track.....UH HUH !!! I did all the primary personal stuff they required....and got a quick E-Mail saying they had received my application, and an Administrator would be previewing it ,and send me an E-Mail. Well a week has gone by and haven't heard a peep. So if any body can help me either to get onto their forum....or better yet...explain how I get these new gauges up and running....I'd be EXTREMELY appreciative !! Thanks for reading a somewhat boring tale of dead ends. Skip d
  13. Ah...ok Bert...I just download and install the 4.5 Client...and that's it !! Easier than I thought !! But I will backup the "Airplanes" folder. Thanks.. Skip
  14. I have 3 payware; Saab 340;Dornier 328;EMB-120...plus the 2 Beechcraft b58 and King air that were once Default Orbx Global and NA Landclass….plus a few payware airports. I guess the Gauges folder will need to go also?? Would it just be a "Copy/Paste" type matter to Add or Replace the affected folders in V4.5 ?? Thanks Skip d
  15. Is it possible for me to download V4.5....and then use it but with aircraft that I have now on V4.3 ?? Thanks for any advice...Skip d
