  1. I tried assigning commands to the yoke even though it didn't appear to be recognized. Surprisingly the commands worked including the axis. The only thing I can't find anywhere is the recognition of a hat switch for views. It seems to only work in various directions but not panning or snapping back to center. Strange too that after I was able to program the yoke it still shows up in FS as a big question mark.
  2. Installation went smoothly except for one thing. When I clicked on CONTROLS, it showed all my USB connected hardware (throttle, rudder pedals, etc). Each one with a graphic underneath and fully functioning. The Yoke control shows the connected model in the top list bar but instead of a graphic it has a default greyed out controller with a big ? question mark on it. Regardless of what I connect - Yoko, Saitek, Logitech, etc. They all show as listed but no graphic and no ability to program and therefore don't function either. Any ideas would be welcome. Hate the thought of reinstalling considering this is the only thing not working right now.
  3. Thanks for the help. I had tried this - or thought I did. Nothing was happening so I rebooted both P3D and the computer and what do you know/ - It came up perfect - covering all 3 screens. I've been doing this FS thing a long time - you'd think I'd remember to reboot when all else fails. Thanks again.
  4. I've been running FSX in Widescreen (NVIDIA) at 5760X1080x32 over 3 - 28" monitors. I installed P3D V3 today, however, even though the resolution is set in both the config file and the P3D setup start screen - it won't stretch over the 3 monitors. Pretty sure I'm just missing something so hoping someone will know what. Thanks,
  5. Good response! I do realize this and actually fly my twins with a glass cockpit (Project Magenta) on a separate cockpit LCD monitor so the IAS, TAS and Groundspeed are always indicated. My impression was that the indicated and true speeds were lower than I expected them to be but with a little more research and your info, I determined this is the case on this aircraft and many similar. Its really just a standard twin with pressurization and more automation. A nice one though. Ive become sort of attached to turboprops lately with all their complexity and performance.
  6. An engine upgrade is available on flightsim.com and maybe Avsim (haven't checked). It adds the RAM VII conversion which increases HP from 285 to 335. It does make a diiference in cruise and climb but not by much - still worth doing. I flew the 340 exactly according to Cessna charts and frankly I find this plane to be slower than the real world verision. A Piper Navajo, while not as attractive is a much better performer.
