  1. Hi Ben I hope all is going well for you. I keep swinging by the forum in the hope of some news on the Airline2Sim roadmap, but things have been looking a bit dormant around here. Just a quick note of whether the Airline2Sim project is still going would be great. Cheers Rich

    Hey Ben - Great to see you are back after what has clearly been a pretty miserable experience. Good luck with all of your plans - looking forward to the A320 in particular.

    A320 tutorials

    Hi Ben, I know you set out your roadmap a while ago and that the A320 is on the agenda, but I wondered if you are able to give any update on this. Your products give great insight into what happens on the flight deck and I am really looking forward to the A320 series in particular . Thanks Rich

    The fog visibility bug where when you pop out of the top layer of fog it suddenly disappears altogether and you can see the ground clearly. When you descend again the fog appears from nowhere and envelopes you.
  5. Many thanks for the replies. I think this is an investment worth going for. Sounds like the SPAD drivers are the way to go. Many thanks for the replies. I think this is an investment worth going for. Sounds like the SPAD drivers are the way to go.
  6. I am considering getting one but the reviews I read keep saying the dials are inaccurate i.e. you turn it one click and it jumps two settings which makes it really frustrating to use. These have been quite old reviews and so i was wondering if Saitek have sorted this out so newer panels work better. Does anyone have any insight? Cheers Rich
  7. I am looking to upgrade my PC, starting with the video card. I run p3d v2 which I understand would benefit from more than the 1.5gb of memory on my gtx480. I was going to get the new 980gtx but I am wondering whether that will really give me much more performance on p3d than the 970 which is about half the price. I don't really use the pc for any other gaming. I am also planning to get a z97 motherboard and i7-4790k but would be grateful for thoughts on the graphics card as a starter. Thanks.
  8. Thanks for the replies guys. You have helped me decide to go for it and get the 780GTX. Rich
  9. I am running P3d v2 which is generally ok, but I struggle to get a smooth flight at 25-30 fps. My system is i7-930 @4.2ghz, 6mb RAM, GTX480 Asus Rampage 3 motherboard 256mb SSD Win 7 In order to get a bit more performance I was thinking of upgrading my computer. Given that the GPU does more of the work under P3d v2 I was thinking that this would be the best place to splash the cash. Am I likely to see a decent performance increase with a GTX780 or should I look at a new processor instead? Thanks Rich

    Windows 8 - Joystick Megathread problem.

    Compatibility mode makes no difference (people seem to keep suggesting this but is does not work) and I do not really want to disable UAC (whether that works or not). The point of my post was to report that I have found something different that seems to stop the problem on my machine which I am sharing in case it makes a difference for anyone else.

    Windows 8 - Joystick Megathread problem.

    I have been experiencing two issues with P3d on Win8. Firstly the disappearing flight control issue and secondly 'fatal error' crashes when trying to switch in and out of P3d in full screen mode. I have found that for me, starting P3d in windowed mode (i.e. Maximised=0 within 'Main' in the cfg file) appears (after a week or so flying) to have got rid of both these issues. I have no idea why this would be, but if I load up in full screen I have numerous problems, if I load in windowed mode (and then switch to full screen once the sim has loaded) it seems perfectly happy.
