  1. As I mentioned - I’m away from my home and computer. I only have my iPhone. I was wondering if I could download the PDF’s.
  2. Once again. Why the passive aggressive responses? Every. Single. Time. He’s just asking an honest question. I don’t think it was necessary to respond in this way. Why is this forum so unkind? People are supposed to come here with questions and shouldn’t be worried they’re going to be nearly made fun of.
  3. Realized I had two accounts for some reason. The account I originally started this topic was an account I made because I couldn’t remember this, older and original account. I’ll delete the temp account once I get an answer to my original question. As for dodging the in-laws...nah, wouldn’t be a wise move. I enjoy getting laid. Skipping the holidays would ensure my checking into the dog house. ...so, how about the original question?
  4. Hi All, I’m going down to the in-laws and anticipate a lot of boredom. I forgot to email myself all the 747 V3, and the -8 docs to read over while I’m dodging political discussions. Is there anyway I can download all the docs? I can’t find it online and I don’t have access to the Ops Center. Just my iPhone. Thanks in advance, all! Blake Williams
  5. Hey Hey, I just purchased the 747 V3. However, I can't find the liveries for it. When I go into the downloads section for liveries - its not there. When I try to download the 747 V2 liveries, it says that it can't located the aircraft inside my FSX folder. Am I doing something wrong? My Ops Center wont open due to an error, for which I've already submitted a support ticket for. I thought however, that I didn't need to the Ops center to download and install liveries. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks guys!
  6. I think anyone reading this thread could agree that Steve apparently is the king of all things FSX. Do you use "lol" as often in your Engineer writing as you do here on these forums?
  7. Hi All, I have looked all over and still can't find the documentation that supplements the 300er. I've looked in the OC and the PMDG folder inside my FSX folder and still am not seeing it. Where can I find it? Thank you much!
  8. Not to mention having to login every single time. I agree - AVSIM should invest in better servers because its always down and buggy.
  9. Currently I have just have the two fans that came with the water cooler. So - should I have those fan bringing cool air to cpu - or pushing hot air away?
  10. Hi There! I recently installed a Corsair H110 onto my rig and have it pushing hot air out of the top. Should it be pulling cool air into the CPU? I also just recently installed ASUS's AISuite 3 and did its 4 way optimization. It got my rig up to 4.8 - which I thought was impressive. However, the cpu fan profile shot right up, as if it wasn't cooling at all. In fact - if I go into the fan tabs, my cpu fan doesn't even have a profile, like the other fans do. When I loaded FSX - and then something intensive - like the PMDG 777, FSX crashes. I uninstalled AISuite and it runs fine and what appears to be at around 4.2 from just doing the auto performance from within the bios. Any thoughts on whats going on? Thank you !
  11. Hi PMDG pilots, I'm at my wits end on this one. I've posted here in the MOBO section as well as simforums and no one has been able to figure out why I cant get my nvidia settings to take in fsx. I know this topic should be in mobo - but I was hoping maybe Ryan could shed some light on this issue. A few weeks ago - I tried installing a corsair H110 water cooler and my system wouldn't boot. I decided to bring it in to a local computer shop before I did damage to my rig. Apparently my cpu was sitting correctly, which I thought was strange because I never touched the cpu seating or latch. Just used alcohol to wipe off old thermal paste. Computer shop called and said everything was working great now. They told me they had to reset my bios, which I thought strange. Before I decided to install the cooler everything was looking GREAT. I had plugged in the suggested numbers into nvidia, and the sim looked amazing. I just knew that I'd finally get to overclocking to enjoy some more addons. So the frustrating thing is that I know my system was running great at one point. After I got it home and reading Nick N's bible I decided I was going to start from scratch and go back to Windows 7 (I was on windows 8 and hated it). I followed nicks bible to the T with all updates, windows setup etc.. However after installing nvidia inspector - fsx isn't using the settings. The PMDG flight deck looks dark and there is ZERO anti ailising. I've gone through literally every step I can think of, as well as help in other forums. All xml files are in the same folder as inspector. Everything looks like it should work, but it just doesn't. If anyone has any idea whats keeping fsx from utilizing my video card, PLEASE help. I'm up to date on all my drivers. Heres my system: Intel i7 4770K - stock speed for now z-87 Delux 8 Gigs jigsaw ram GTX 770 1300 watts power Corsair H110 If reading through my other forum posts to see what I've already tried would help, they're here: http://www.simforums.com/Forums/nvidia-inspector-issues_topic48552_post298258.html#298258 http://forum.avsim.net/topic/433329-nvidia-inspector/ Thanks guys. Just dying to utilize my rig to its full potential.
  12. No dice. I've tried everything you guys have recommended. I've set the NI profile to "override application setting" with AA box unchecked, and it looks horrible. I've checked the AA Box in FSX and gone into NI and put flag to "Enhance application setting" and it still looks horrible. The most frustrating part is that it used to work flawlessly until they reset my bios. Since then I have gone from Windows 8 to 7 and reinstalled FSX, all the SP's, followed Nick N's bible and it still doesn't work. I've deleted the NI ms fsx profile and made a new one attaching said profile to the actual fsx.exe in explorer. nada. The only thing that doesn't make much sense is something I noticed tonight. I went into my root FSX folder - which is located on an SSD and there is no fsx.cfg. When I run a search in windows explorer, it shows the cfg present in C:\users\me\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX. I've been using flight sim since fs95 and always thought that there had to be a .cfg in the root of FSX. Maybe something with my SSD is throwing it off? Then again, doesn't make sense since it used to work flawlessly. Im at the end of the rope on this one. Mainly being because I just cant get past how bad it looks in fsx when there is no anti-ailising. Yours truly, Sleepless in Los Angeles
  13. This just doesn't make any sense. I was running windows 8 and hated it, so yesterday I wiped my drive clean and installed windows 7 and redid FSX and re downloaded nvidia inspector - followed all the settings parameters while the fsx.exe profile is selected and applied and it's STILL not applying it in the same. Flying without any anti alising is painful. It's just so annoying because I've had it up and working before and it worked great.
