  1. Hello all, Here's a small challenge for you: I need a new desktop for P3D/General gaming and I have a budget of $4000 Australian Dollars, I have a vague idea of what I could pull together however I want to hear your professional opinions so that I can spend as effectively as possible. The rules: All purchases must be from Australian sources w/ local warranty. Must include monitor (preferably in the 27" range and min. WQHD) Only 1 primary OS storage will be required as I have SATA3 HDDs for bulk storage already Keyboard/Mouse not required Sound card not required, onboard audio sufficient Fairly discrete case, don't need a light show Overclocking capability preferred Intel/nVidia preferred Quality brands only, I don't want cheap PSUs etc. Shipping must be included in budget. I am located in Perth so local pickup can be used to save cost, but interstate shipping must be included. Please do not suggest importing from American/European sources, shipping will be expensive and tax will need to be paid on import. To spice it up, if you can exceed the specs I have in mind, there may be a P3D/FSX/X-Plane-related prize for you. Good luck!
  2. Are you running the installers as admin (right click > run as admin) and with your firewall/antivirus disabled?
  3. Login to your PMDG store account as you have done. Click "View Previous Orders". Click the order for the 777 base pack. Download from the bottom of the page. Uninstall your current version (expansion first then the base pack) and reinstall with the newly downloaded installer. Go back to your "View Previous Orders" page and repeat for the 300ER expansion.
  4. Yes, the latest installers will give you the option of what sim you want to install in, and can be installed in both simultaneously.
  5. P3D is a more demanding sim than FSX. What might have been a stable OC in FSX might be unstable in P3D as it's pushing the CPU harder.
  6. Have a read of the introduction manual, it explains all this and more.
  7. Make sure your antivirus and firewall are disabled. Go to the Operations centre folder in program files (x86), delete everything but the updater and run the updater as admin.
  8. 2 things: 1) Never reload a PMDG aircraft. The introduction manual makes this very clear. 2) Never use the default P3D/FSX fuel and payload, always use the FMC.
  9. Betting this has caused it. Disable these sceneries and try again.
  10. Active sky is weather. It doesn't affect sun/moon positions (which I don't think is simulated in P3D/FSX)
  11. Has anything else changed on your system? I don't see how updating the operations centre could affect the sim
  12. Hmmm then it shouldn't have affected your sim at all. That update only changed the operations centre. Is the 777 (or any PMDG) aircraft set as your default aircraft when the sim loads?
  13. No issues at all here so it's definitely your setup. Assign the controllers in P3D, not FSUIPC. Move your FSUIPC.ini to the desktop from the P3D modules folder and let it rebuild.
  14. Did you uninstall the old version then reinstall? FYI - PMDG require you to sign your posts with your full name (first and last name).
  15. I think it's something to do with the computations within the sim. If the bios clock is wrong or faulty, it messes up the sim. There were cases of Asus motherboards having issues with PMDG software a few years back, I think it was fixed with a bios update.
  16. Disable FXAA in P3D graphics settings and Nvidia control panel
  17. Actually Norton is notorious for being the worst piece of junk "antivirus" to exist. It's well known that disabling Norton does absolutely nothing. If you want help, fine. If you aren't going to accept people's solutions to your problem, there's no point posting here. FYI - PMDG require you to sign your full name on all posts here.
  18. Well that escalated quickly. Easy up everyone. Ken: You need to relax, people are trying to help you, let them help you or there's no point asking for help here. You left out a lot of important details and when someone asked you to clarify, you attacked them. Targeting and attacking people like that is not wanted here. Keep it to yourself. Rick: Keep it to yourself, that kind of attitude is no better and not wanted here.

    Fueling issue.

    No he means start with the default panel state (engines running etc.)
  20. Have you tried all the suggestions of firewalls etc etc.?
  21. You know this isn't an official support avenue. Submit a support ticket.
  22. What update issue? Running an old version of anything is not a good idea. If everyone is on the latest version, it rules out a variable and is easier to troubleshoot. The OC is only installed with the full product installers, it is not available as a separate download.
