  1. Multitasking looking after the kids and typing. Interesting about PTA, I may look into that once I’ve achieved stability at higher FPS then as I’m guessing it’s going to hit the FPS if it’s madding more detail lol. fiber frame something or other haha. It’s been so long since I’ve tweaked as I’ve been using the same CFC tweaked for years lol. Whats the prefered gfx card I was thinking GTX 1080ti strix 11gb?
  2. I purchased England Wales, Scotland and trees, just had global before. Treated myself :D i came across this https://www.simtweaks.com/ which made me thing tweaking was a thing sounds like I just need to upgrade hardware then?
  3. Morning all, Soooo I finally made the jump to P3D properly after many many years of MSFS. Im struggling here if I’m honest... I’ve repurchased all my Orbx scenery at substantial cost and upgraded active sky / ASCA to the latest for P3D and I’m suffering in default aircraft with FPS. I come from a heavily tweaked FSX with a good locked 40fps.. how / can I get back to this with p3d? Is tweaking required again or is there a tweaking add on program? Is my hardware just not good enough? My specs: Core i7-4790K 4GHz Quad-Core (OC 4.4ghz) 2 x SLI GeForce GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V (OC’d) samsung evo 850 SSD’s Corsair - Dominator Platinum 16GB DDR3-1866 Memory Many thanks in advance
  4. I have seen this one but it's not that straight forward with networking and it seems the server xml files have changed and possibly the location of where they go
  5. Hi All, Decided yesterday that I'm going to move years of summing work into FSX-SE due to performance increases. I run a network setup using two machines, one for gaming, one for support with programs such as EFB, ASCA, AS2016. I always used to use froogles sim connect video to get everything working but that's kind of irrelevant now.. Does anyone have a link to a decent video or text guide for getting this stuff working again?? Thanks in advance
  6. Wow, mass response, thanks all! Im an ORBX, UK2K, Aerosoft, Carenado, A2A User. I think I'll just go down the route of a clean install of my addons into P3D.. I Currently run an SSD just for FSX (Heres my setup http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/rVhqm8 ) Ive installed P3D on that same SSD along side FSX so ill justy start the mind numbing hours of installing lol! I also run a network setup and I'm using EFB, AS2016, ASCA, VPILOT etc over a network through SimConnect and FSUIPC / WIDEFS... Will simconnect continue as is or do i need to reconfigure?
  7. Hi All, Today I made the jump to P3D from 15 years of MSFS. I'm currently FSX classic and over the time I've bought a mass of addons. My question is, is there anyway to migrate my current fsx setup into P3D? I've seen a tool online http://www.flightsim.ee/products/migration-tool but don't want to try anything in case it destroys my fsx before I'm setup on P3d. So is it a start from scratch and get back to installing for hours at end or can it be done?
  8. Many thanks all, this information is very useful! I actually completely forgot I have a second 27" monitor at work which I'm going to borrow and try at home just out of curiosity to see how it affects of performance
  9. ah ok, I know it's cpu intense etc but wasn't sure. I'm very fortunate to of been able to build a dedicated fsx machine. So how Windows handles the 4K wouldn't be much of an issue I guess? There's two reasons I was thinking of triple monitor - field of view - sheer size of what I'm looking at Maybe this could be achieved with a 4K 50" tv then? Or would it have to be a monitor?
  10. Ah excellent thanks, I understand now. Yes that would be the correct resolution. I don't want to change any existing stuff as its not even a year old.. If I plug another monitor into my card and fps are hit then I guess I could get another card and SLI to boos performance? Thanks Eugene, I completely understand where your coming from, I want the most immersive experience. I guess you've been fortunate to experience both. I wonder if the missus will notice the 47" disappear out the front room
  11. I'm also capped at 40 through an external limiter. I've tweaked and tweaked and tweaked the config to get it running really well I'm getting between 20-40 also but smooth as opposed to bouncing all over the place.. Just feeling like I need the next step now.. What do you mean by "It's a lot of pixels, but many claim to run successfully with 6Mp"
  12. Hi all, I'm thinking of going down the triple monitor route.. I'm currently running fsx classic with many many high end addons such as orbx, aerosoft, uk2000 extreme etc. I was hoping for some feedback as it's an expensive venture... Is this going to kill my frames? I don't want to spend £500 on two extra monitors to fly with 10-15 fps My specs are as follows.. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/markwrd1/saved/bsN8TW The monitor I'll be using is an Asus mx279h
  13. Absolutely, that's what this tight-nick community is and should be all about IMO. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59304607/Photo%2031-10-2015%2C%2019%2056%2010.jpg Phone videos again, but you should all get the general idea.. Fellow simmers, I am one happy bunny - Again thank you all for your input and assistance The flight from Bristol EGGD - Schiphol EHAM was a massive success all round.. Minimal very distant blurries and fantastic solid FPS around 40fps and one of my setup just for a laugh https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59304607/Photo%2031-10-2015%2C%2020%2012%2044.jpg FSX CONFIG

  14. Sorry I've not had a chance to get on since earlier in the week.. Having conducted brief tests earlier in the week... Yes image quality has improved, loading time has improved, autogen popping has improved, general sim smoothness has improved. Absolutely over the moon with the response and help from the community. When I'm back home tonight I will post my cfg for all to see, hopefully it may help others Hi fppilot, as included in my post above
