  1. Maddog Repaints Suggestions

    Ah, what? There are several airlines riding MD-80s in the U.S. In fact the current largest user of the airframe is Delta.
  2. Trouble with an install

    Please correct me if I'm wrong (I mean it), but I thought our CRJ was released for only FSX/FSX:SE and P3DV4. Did we include P3DV2 in the advertising? I don't remember for sure, but I don't think we did and running in P3DV2 might have all sorts of issues. Best wishes.
  3. Which AntiVir for Flightsim

    As someone fairly knowledgeable in this area, the only three suites I would use (in no particular order) are Nortons, Bit Defender, and Kapersky. They are always at the top of the AV-TEST recommended list in all three categories while others come and go. Been running Nortons on multiple flight sim computers for years, no issues or performance problems whatsoever. Best wishes.
  4. Maddog frame rate

    No sir, with P3DV4 I don't (won't) use Nvidia Inspector unless I have a specific need to. Instead, I simply set Vsync and Triple Buffering to On in P3DV4 as well as setting Unlimited Frame Rates. If you try this, please let me know how it works for you. Given what you've shared, I think you'll love it! Best wishes.
  5. Maddog frame rate

    I'm running a 55 inch 4K and three 23 inch monitors off a GTX 1080, and I use the 1/2 refresh rate (VSync)... it's perfect!
  6. Maddog frame rate

    I'm sure this is all systems dependent, but on the systems I've run or manage that run NVIDIA cards, I've found that using Unlimted Frame Rates and V-Sync/Triple Buffering On (which essentially provides a locked 50% of your monitor fresh rate, for me that's a chosen 30fps) seems to be the best setting for all conditions. But then again I run all payware scenery, ORBX, yada... yada... yada... so having processing power in reserve to keep frames stable on large memory loads is important. Of course this may not be he case for everyone's type of flying or their systems, which is why we get so many diverse responses where frame rates are concerned.

  8. Updating AIRAC

    For those having problems with updating the AIRAC, please put in a support ticket at: http://www.flythemaddog.com/hesk/?language=English Best wishes
  9. Updating AIRAC

    The full path is: C:\Users\Dave 4770K\Documents\Maddog X Files\NavData Best wishes.
  10. Installation Issues

    Yes sir, except that FSX should not be installed in the location you've specified. It should be in the Program Files X86 folder by default. I'm sure you're aware of the advice about not installing FSX to the Program Files X86 folder, and that since you're using that folder you've adjusted your folder permissions. Best wishes.
  11. I use this on every flight and I don't have the problem. But I'm using V4.2, which is what the aircraft was release for. Maybe that would make a difference for you. Best wishes.

  13. That is a DFGC Restart, and is normal after the aircraft senses G Forces created by landing. It's normal. EDIT: roughly 2 min after landing
  14. I've actually never seen this message as I have the new altitude in and armed well before then - depending on ATC coverage that is. Best wishes.
