  1. Joe, I just recently uninstalled my FSX, which was performing as you say excellent. The difference is best described by how smooth the sim runs vs FSX. I'd suggest if you have enough hd space on a separate drive. Install P3d there and give it a go. First check with all your add ons for p3d installers. OBRX as far as i know is pretty much up to date. This will allow you to best judge by yourself. You can always get your money back if you don't like p3d. I'd also suggest not to install or try to install anything on p3d, unless you have verified it works. I have found it is best to wait for the developer to update their installers than screwing around with files. The avsim community is also very helpful. Sincerely, Edgar
  2. Hello Terry, I noticed a small hit on performance when I installed the old megascenery Las Vegas Boxed version. I did not allow it to modify the cfg file though. I think it adds Fiber Frame and some other tweaks. Right now I love the performance without any photo real, but the California and Nevada mountains look so much better with photo scenery. Thanks. Edgar
  3. Hi All! Does of you with megascenery installed. Do you allow the installer to add the edits to the cfg file? Do you even need those edits in P3D 3.1? What are the best settings for Photo real? In FSX, I used photo real for many areas. I am only going to use photo real for areas with lots of mountains in P3D. I will let GEX take care of the flat areas. Thank you. Edgar Corripio
  4. Thank you all! Lots of great feedback. I've made my decision. I am going for GEX/P3D. I almost pulled the trigger for FTX specially because of the great price they have right now. I just think their textures are like many have said too "Green". Sincerely, Edgar Corripio
  5. In other words. Once installed add it using the scenery manager within P3D right? LOL this hobby is 3 hours flying, 5 hours messing around with add-ons. Edgar
  6. I must use the migration tool right?
  7. Do the FSX FSgenesis regions work in P3D? Edgar Corripio
  8. Excellent points! I used to use nothing but photo scenery. I have about 300 gigs of it. When I switched to P3D, I just decided to do with out it. Except for the Hawaiian islands. Photo real makes the experience so much more realistic as jetliner pilot. However as you get close to the ground specially on flat areas, it really sucks. I guess, I will save up and buy the GEX P3D. I do like the their textures a bit more. It's expensive and I wish they offered some coupon or small discount for current customers. I just completed a flight from KLAX-KDEN. Wow FSX never came close to being as smooth as P3D. (I have 3.1) I am so happy, I P3D. Thank you all. Sincerely, Edgar Corripio
  9. Thank you all for the prompt replies. Scott, that is a great comparison set of pics. I must say, it looks like a 50/50. Some textures look better on GEX and some look better on FTX... Then of curse the price difference. 65(Sale) bucks vs 130...
  10. Hi, I am contemplating the purchase of FTX global vs GEX P3D. For FSX I own all the GEX regions as well as some of the UTX versions. I was very happy with them. But since saying bye bye to FSX, I am now a bit concerned about FTX Global giving me poor performance on my payware airport ad-dons. FTX is on Sale right now! and GEX is basically 130 bucks. Which is a greater expense but if it is worth it. Oh well. I own all the FSDT, Flytampa and Flightbeam airports. Any one here have them along with FTX? I have seen some videos about FTX global and I must say, I am very tempted to buy. My P3D v3.1 is running perfectly. Thank you all in advance. Sincerely, Edgar Corripio.
  11. Rich, I think you are correct. it is very time consuming to try to get this to work. My sim is working perfectly as it is and I just miss the AI planes. Maybe I'll just buy MT6 even though their models suck compared to UT2 and the flight plans... I think MT6 works with P3D from the installer right? Thank you both for trying. Sincerely, Edgar Corripio
  12. Rich, Maybe because I have all the AI settings to zero in the set-up screen for Prepar3d. It does not add those lines. And I am running P3D V3.1 Dave, Okay so I should do the following: 1) Install the migrating tool. 2) enable the migrating tool. 3) install UT2 4) edit the cfgs? Once it is all set up can you get rid of the migration tool? Thank you both for your help. Sincerely, Edgar Corripio
  13. Dave, Thank you for the help. Right now I don't have UT2 installed in my pc at all. So i need to install it again using the migration tool, correct? Edgar Corripio
  14. I uninstalled the tool. New cfg.
