    Hard to believe, EZdok V2 close.

    Unless it has changed, Opus cameras will not react to turbulence generated by any weather engine other than...Opus. I would be prepared to repurchase Opus just for the cameras. However they will not get my money as long as their software is so narrowly focused. I can see it from their point of view. However it doesn't work for me. Too bad.
  2. Stable sim platform with addon specifications, that will not allow poorly constructed addons to run. This will, at least, mitigate the "must be your system" cop out that many users have to endure whan seeking "support" for their purchases.
  3. Has anybody done any tests with FT CYYZ on and off, with other things equal? I have read that the Toronto area is a VAS vacuum at the best of times.

    UT2 for V3

    Stephen, Here is the exe.xml you referenced in your last post: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>exe.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_btstrp_config_manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp_config_manager.exe</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> <Launch.Addon> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Name>UT2</Name> <Path>C:\FSX\steamapps\common\FSX\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2\UT2Services.exe> <NewConsole>True</NewConsole> </Launch.Addon> The following entry is in the middle of the document. It has to be the last entry: </SimBase.Document> Your exe.xml should look like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>exe.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_btstrp_config_manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp_config_manager.exe</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Name>UT2</Name> <Path>C:\FSX\steamapps\common\FSX\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2\UT2Services.exe> <NewConsole>True</NewConsole> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> Entry in bold to help location

    UT2 for V3

    Hi Stephan, 0 < 9. Has to be 10. Also try this entry in Simobject.cfg. This assumes 10 is the next sequentially available number. Also you csn set Required=False for this entry. UT2 is not default: [Entry.10] Title=UT2 Aircraft Path=C:\FSX\steamapps\common\FSX\Simobjects\UT2 Aircraft Required=False Active=True The single line entry you added, needs to be put into your FSX.cfg file. If FSX is installed on your machine, put it in the actual file. If not, add it into the fake/copy you created. Put it into the [Main] section. Again if, for any reason, there are any other Simobjects entries, they have to be consecutive.
  6. Well, let's see how this all shakes out. I personally don't care whose hardware executes the software. I'm a bit skeptical that AMD will catch up to Intel/Nvidia in the next iteration, but would be happy to be wrong. VR is still relatively young technology. When I have more than 1080 vertical pixels per eye, am untethered, have 360 degree obstacle avoidance and touch technology is miniaturized; I'll sell my vehicle to buy a headset (probably have to Having said that, I salute early adopters.

    Time for a BIG Step ?

    Perhaps there's a reason Lockheed and Dovetail decided to build on existing platforms rather than build from the ground up.
  8. Well the proof will be in the pudding. Maybe resurrect this thread in March.

    MyTraffic 6 - FPS and Stutters

    Hey Jay, Could you point us at an explanation of the location specific settings? Thanks

    MyTraffic 6 - FPS and Stutters

    This won't help with MT6 and I am not advocating one package over another. Ultimate Traffic is being updated by the author. Don't know when it will be released, but I believe P3D compatibility is on the agenda.
  11. Retail copy of Windows can be moved to another machine (keyword is moved - cannot run concurrently on 2 or more machines), unlike OEM which is bound to its original machine.
  12. Perhaps you could check a few custom sites and get an assembled price with the same/similar components. I've never dealt with Jetline, but seems like you are paying a bunch for assembly. Perhaps the name Jetline is worth a hefty premium, but I doubt it. If it is software installation, there is a massive amount of information here and elsewhere to get up and running with just about any platform/addon. Also, in my experience, the majority of time is not installing; but testing, tweaking...testing, tweaking... Best of luck
  13. It's not so much an either/or choice. UTX competes primarily with Global Vector. Its landclass is limited to urban areas. I believe the landclass can be disabled in the scenery library if you wish to use Open LC.
