  1. My experience with Prepar3D within Win 10 was not too bad with the exception of erratic to unusable opperation of some GoFlight Modules, most notably the Gf-166 modules. Despite applying all known fixes supplied by Rob A and Steve from Pollypot Software, I was never able to obtain reliable operation of some of these devices...Extremely frustrating after a Win 10 Pro clean install and an extensive Prepar3D addon and aircraft install. Now after a Win 10 delete and a clean reinstall of Win 7, along with all of the many P3D addons, all is well with P3Dv3 and GoFlight. I am one happy camper again and will stay with Win 7 till the day I die! .......Age 81 and counting......Hopefully, Win 7 will out live me!
  2. If you have any GoFlight modules, especially Gf-166 radios, stay away from Win 10 for now. I have yet been able to obtain stable operation of those units despite trying all published fixes. All was well with my GoFlight units in Win 7, not so under Win10.
  3. Vic, It seems that you've found the solution to the lightning artifact problem within SLI, at least on my twin 780 system. Been testing for the last two hours in the worst ASN live thunderstorm weather that I could find. No artifacts and well defined REX lightning bolts. Absolutely beautiful... I think the real key was "Go into NVI and reset the P3D profile to defaults - this will set the new P3D profile for the driver" before entering the AA and other settings. Many thanks, Robert
  4. Isn't it time to shut this thread down? Ain't gonna make 64 bit a reality, no matter what opinions are expressed here.
  5. Yes, I'm aware that FSX is a 32 bit app...not sure why I posted that, only wanted to show that I was running Win 7 rather than XP.....The 64bit just seemed to naturally follow.... :-)
  6. I agree...Found this to be an absolute requirement with the [bUFFERPOOLS] Poolsize=0 option.
  7. Some additional info re my configuration: 1. 8GB 7-8-7-24 memory 2. Win 7 64bit tuned per NickN: http://www.simforums...topic29041.html 3. My compulsive and frequent use of O&O to defrag both Win 7 and FSX on their respective drives 4. Nvidia's 306.97 driver 5.

  8. Seventy eight and counting....MS Simulation (FSX) has permitted this ex USAF crew member (C-47 & B-26) to obtain his commercial pilots ticket (NGX) despite being color blind....Fantasy is better than nothing!
  9. Bojote, NickN and Word Not Allowed ( as well as innumerable others on this forum) have all offered options to manipulate the FSX .cfg to obtain optimum FSX performance. Over the life of FSX, and several system mods, I've experimented with all, and finally settled on the settings of one of the aforementioned "Big Three". My system is i7-950 based at 4.2Gig coupled with an GTX-850 video. I have more add-ons installed and activated than I care to admit and run Opus weather on the on the FSX computer. Frame rates are consistently in the 27-30 range without any stuttering or burps. Near major commercially installed airport scenery rates may drop to the 24-25 range, but still smooth. My search or performance is over. As stated above, I've found my solution ......Without declaring which of the "Big Three" settings have led to my satisfaction,( Hint: FSX is internally locked @30fps) I'm curious as to the experience of others. Just curious...........
  10. Hi KevinThanks for the response. A bit of mystery here. Prior to the 1.3 upgrade, I backed up all applicable 1.2 PMDG files including the dll.XML file.Not sure what I did wrong last night ( perhaps one brew too many), but today I used those same files for a reinstall without error.Incidently, my FSX dll.XML file only shows the HUD entry and that is the only mod I made to the P3D XML file. Works fine.Where did your entries for options, events and sounds originate?Robert
  11. After successfully installing and operating PMDG's NGX in P3D version 1.2, I deleted the file,installed Ver 1.3 and recopied the PMDG NGX files to the upgraded version. Now I am unable to load and execute the NGX files without error. Realair files still load and operate without problems. Has anyone successfully installed, loaded and operated the NGX in version 1.3?
  12. At my age, I can never be sure that I've remembered to do anything properly. (grin)However, I think that I performed the same ritual installing the files into 1.3 as was successful in 1.2.Waiting now to see if anyone reports NGX operating successfully in 1.3 before digging any deeperin the problem.
  13. Oh My! Just completed an upgrade to vesion 1.3 Academic. PMDG NGX performed flawlessly in version 1.2. Now unable load the NGX.Event viewer shows "PMDG_737NGX.DLL" to be the cause of the compatibility problem. Here's hoping that I've overlooked simple this time around and someone here can set me straight........
  14. Works just fine in P3D.http://a2asimulation...hp?f=87&t=28613Robert AKA GrayBeard
  15. After years of lurking, searching and learning , I am posting for the first time. Neither pro or con Flight, I submit the following:By way of introduction, I am a 77 year old flightsim enthusiast. Many years ago I experienced the thrill of flight as a C-47 and B-26 crew member in the USAF. Being Color blind, I was unable to fulfill my dream of a becoming a professional pilot. FS98 thru FSX has allowed me to live that fantasy life.My computer, with a I7 950 cpu running at 4MHZ and with just about every scenery and aircraft add-on available runs FSX and P3D fluidly at high settings.....I could not be happier, and eagerly await the next release from PMDG,FlyTampa,FSDT,etc. And now the point of this post...My system performs exceptionally well and has everything installed that anyone interested in the challenge of flight could desire..... Enter my grandchildren and their friends (a college freshman to 6th grade and between); after ten to twenty minutes of play, they lose interest and without exception revert to their "two thumb games" for hours on end. Obviously, the mere challenge of flight in its self is not sufficient to hold the same level of interest to my offspring as it does to me. So, in the interest of curious science, I'll download Flight along with the first two available options on the 29th and submit it to my young test group. I am anxious to see if its built in gaming challenges will be enough to compete with their favorite games........Should be interesting.Robert
