  1. Who cares about moving forward with simulation technology, lets keep developing for a outdated platform. The whole FSX vs P3D is like the A vs B argument on anet. Ill vote with my dollars and Ill support company's that develop for P3D. Fame Suit On! CFI/CFII
  2. I'm not sure how you can use P3D for training with out getting it certified, I worked in a sim center for several years. ATDs and PCADs were the lowest things we had. So for P3D used for training on your home computer you cant log the time, So I don't understand all the hopla about its for training... If you want to get something certified buy a redbird or a frasca.
  3. Thanks Handle for laying it out. PMDG can do what ever they please, Hey all we can do is hope for the next gen of simulation on the consumer level right, whats progress anyway. Oh well off to the airport to burn some 100LL. Sim on guys and gals! VatSpy is a program you can download, there is always Vataware.com, its a lot like flightaware but for vatsim.
  4. I will not support PMDG any more, FSX is a dead platform, P3D picks up where MS left off. Carenado is doing just fine developing for FSX and P3D, why can't PMDG. I cant allow my self to go out and buy a copy of FSX. The simming community 6 years ago was so much more exciting, hopefully we can only climb from here. -Positive Rate Gear Up! Thanks!
  5. Here we are in the last few months of 2013, seems like its 2 steps forward and one step back with our flight sim products. I ran a Flight sim club back in 2006-2008 at a major aviation university, FS9 was the way to go back then and we figured in the next 4-6 years FS would be light years ahead. Well here we are still using the same sims and inefficiently coded software. Our Hardware has made leaps and bounds, but here we are. I cant see my self going out buying a copy of FSX and tweaking that back up to spec and buying the PMDG 777. Does anyone know if CAE is or was going to make a civilian flight sim for the masses, I heard that one a few years ago.
  6. oh man glad I didn't buy it.... I just cant go to FSX, P3D is so much better. Used Nvidia Inspecter for my new GTX 780 P3D runs so nice now
  7. Alright you guys sold me, just when I type .metar KPHL I want the wx in P3D to reflect what is really going on. Thanks for the feed back! I got one of the other instructors at our flight school turned on to P3D, built a computer for him last month finally went P3D this weekend, maybe I can get him into Vatsim soon.
  8. Hey guys, Is anyone running the new updated Active Sky 2012 that is compatible with P3D? Not sure if I'm one of the rare ones but some how I managed to get P3D and vatsim working a few months ago. Only thing missing is the weather. Vatsim fails to inject the weather into P3D. I was wondering if active sky will solve this problem, I just don't want to spend the $$ to find out it doesn't solve the problem. Thanks guys I enjoy the P3D forum here! -Jon CFI/CFII thats my gravitar for Battlefield 3, C4rlyRaeJepsen. Not sure why its linked with the forums here lol
  9. Hey guys long time FS9 vatsim user when I went to Riddle, just got into P3D with a new GTX 670 really want to vatsimming again, wish someone would make a compatible client for P3D, Get the this industry moving forward again. I had a vatsim club at Riddle we had 25-30 pilots. Right now is there anyway to get SB4 running on P3D?
  10. Are tweaks I should do to optimize P3D? I have several FSX aircraft, a big name 767, how would I go about install such a aircraft? use a injector? I am downloading P3D as we speak. Still waiting on UPS to drop off my GTX 670
  11. So I can do the one month liscence and its the full simulator? I think that is a great idea. I am not running PCIe3, I am on a P67A board, I dont think it will make that much of a diffrence.
  12. Hey guys, Just ordered a MSI GTX 670 Power Edition should be here tomorrow. I am running a i5 2500k overclocked to 4.4Ghz, I play BF3 a lot. I used to be a pretty big simmer back in the FS9 days but havent had a system to play FSX or P3D. Looking to get back into vatsim but I did some testing a few months ago on FSX wish SB4 but everytime ran SB4 I lost all AA and fps. FSX wasnt that bad on my current Radeon 5850. Is the only way to use SB4 or FSinn running it on a seperate computer, I have a netbook that might be up to the challenge. Thinking of making the jump to P3D but worried about PMDG and other programs working correctly. I know this is a lot but thanks for the help!
  13. Solution 2: Override Antialiasing via Nvidia Inspector (not Enhance) I did this and it seem to work but I am still having proformance issues when I open SB4 in FSX. Maybe my card just isnt powerful enough... Solution 1: Run SB4 as the separate app, not inside FSX, you can do that even on one computer. I can open SB4 outside before and or after starting FSX, but I cant get back into FSX to use it and if I do I cant get it to show up in FSX. I have been searching how to use SB4 as a external program but people ask that question and said they fixed it but no one is posting how to do it. Can I get around all of this by grabbing a new GTX 560ti or GTX 570 here in a few weeks? Thanks
  14. do I leave the in game setting to off or leave them on?
  15. Hey everyone two questions, I have been enjoying FSX on my new rig i5-2500k with my old Geforce 9800GTX. Sim does pretty well on med to med high settings. Im waiting for funds to get a new GTX 560 ti or GTX570. But when I open SB4 I seem to loose anti-aliasing on the aircraft and I go from 30 fps locked in game to 18-20fps. I have tried using NVIDIA Inspector but with no real luck. Im excited to fly on vatsim with FSX but there is no way with the performance hit when I open SB4, when I close it again im back to normal. Also I posted a week or so ago when I used FSXMark11, I average around 26fps. Any ideas or thoughts. Thanks guys!!
