    Tutorial Images Printing Dark

    Excellent for you, Peter. But I'm one of those guys who would rather have a notebook open in front of me ... it just seems more natural and easier to navigate. BTW my images from the 747 tutorial are so dark, it's hard for me to read them off a computer as well. Maybe I'm getting glaucoma. Here's one each from the 777 tutorial and the 747 tutorial.
  2. I'm not sure if it's just me, or if others are having this problem, but when I print out the 747 v3 tutorial, all the images are much too dark. I solved this problem by meticulously taking each image and adjusting the levels in photoshop, saving the results as a separate PDF page, then binding them together into one document. The resultant prints were MUCH easier for these old eyes to read. If there is any interest, I would be happy to upload the PDF to the AVSIM library. Has anyone else had a problem with the images printing too dark? Dennis Trawick

    Password for manuals

    Sometimes when I have digital conundrums, I use a search engine to find a workaround or solution.
  4. ACARS ... the surprise is ACARS ... some serious deducing went into my official guess. Perhaps I'll win a prize. After all, I was very close in guessing about the Operations Center. My guess was flushable latrines.

    DC-6 Manuals and Docs

    Froogle mentioned in his "first impressions" video that there were over 400 pages of documentation. Is there more than is listed on the PMDG website document page? Thanks

    PMDG does not publish release times.

    The future of the NGX

    This makes you my new best friend.
  8. I must admit, I enjoy working through tutorials. I get a lot of information from YouTube, Angle of Attack, and other educational venues, but nothing ties all this knowledge together better than a well written tutorial. Step by step with information and options on a written page ... yeah, that's the ticket. Ryan has written some wonderful tutorials for PMDG, especially on the 737 NGX and the 777. His tutorial #2 on the NGX is a masterpiece. I have worked these tutorials so often, I can almost do them without reference, ALMOST. It's a very time consuming and difficult effort to produce a good tutorial, I'm sure. So I had an idea. Wouldn't it be great for some of the very knowlegeable and willing participants of this forum to generate their own tutorials, publish them on AVSIM in a collected location and open them to scrutiny and conversation. Let's take some of the pressure off Ryan, and let him finish #2 on the 777. These tutorials wouldn't have to broad cold and dark to shutdown tutorials (although they certainly could be), but could concentrate on a particular aspect of 777 operations, such as fueling, flight planning, in flight operations, emergency procedures, etc. We could even have contests, voted on by members, for best tutorials in certain categories. The possiblities are endless. A lot of the AVSIM members, like me, are retired and have some spare time to contribute. What do you think?

    Version 2.8

    No download link available for me, as well. I'm logged into my account, I can pull up the order, but there is no download link. Please advise.

    Farewell to Tom Allensworth

    This hurts. AVSIM is like a second family to me. Thanks Tom. God Bless You. See you soon, my friend.

    To FSX users on the fence for P3D 2.5

    Alex, your post is why I am so interested in this subject. I noticed you switched from DX9 (default). DX10 makes all the difference to me. No dis to you intended at all. There may be such a comparison already, I just haven't come across it yet.

    To FSX users on the fence for P3D 2.5

    Until I see a thoughtful, unbiased comparison. from a user who knows what they are doing. who has run DX10 and FSX, and P3D, I'll stay with my FSX (DX10). I've never been happier with a simulator and mine looks damn good at the present time. I bought FSX SE because it was on sale for $5, but it is sitting in a corner, probably never to be used. I'm still not happy with the P3D EULA, I feel like I'm being manipulated. I don't like that. If Steve had not developed the DX10 "fixer", perhaps I would have a different mindset. Thanks again, Steve.
