    PMDG 777 Cannot Climb Hight FL220 Without Stall

    Improper weather combined with poor airmanship. Engine indications are redlining, fuel config messages, flying and climbing in buffet speeds and high OAT. Thatswhy you are having those problems. As suggested try to upgrade your FSUPIC and if possible, weather engine.

    SP1 relase

    And if you are sceptical to buy then just get SP1 first and try it out. You dont need 300ER for SP1.

    Windows 8 - Joystick Megathread problem.

    Well ofcourse its related to win8, didnt you read my post? Its how FSX communicates with directx and controller management. In win8 controller management is different but it doesnt mean its completely broken. FS9 and and lots of other games/sims work just fine. Its FSX and few others that are coded in the way that was suitable for previous OSs but are having problem with new controller managemen in win8.

    Windows 8 - Joystick Megathread problem.

    Thing is that how windows 8 handles controllers is different from win7. There are many cooperative layers for controllers and fsx is using controllers in foreground mode which will release controllers when focus is shifted.
  9. Just a plain install like you do on win7 and others, no special tweaking needed. Aircraft preview in selection screen is indeed blank but thats about it and it doesnt really bother me. Havent tried it on w8.1 but it works well on w8.0.
  10. FS9 runs on Win8 very well widouth a single controller disconnects.

    Guess its just something that we cant fix by ourselves. MS needs to act and do it now.

    Windows 8 - Joystick Megathread problem.

    Hello Nico, I experience controller loss when FSX window loses focus. For example I bring up AS2012 to check metar, or ServInfo to check up on things. When I return to FSX then controller is gone. I can manage to get it back by going full screen and then back to window mode. I have noticed (maybe just blacebo effect), but losing controller and getting it back gets progressively worse as the flight time passes. Its also harder to get it back in FSX as flight time passes. Also There are no W8 drivers released for my MOBO, so I use ones from W7. BIOS should be latest but Ill check. Thanks, Raimo

    Windows 8 - Joystick Megathread problem.

    What have I done so far to resolve this: Adjust best performance of: Backround services Have unchecked all "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" boxes under HID and USB controllers. Most of them are blanked by the way and only few were ticked. USB Selective Suspending Setting: Disabled Anything else I could try?

    None of the above seems to work for me :( Weird thing is that it only happens on FSX. On FS9 I never have this problem.
