  1. As far as I know the Microsoft Sidewinder 2 doesn't need drivers or else it just uses a generic joystick driver already in windows. Try plugging it into a different USB port and restarting your system
  2. Here is one of those rare opportunities to pick up a used real 737 NG flight decks for your home flight simulator :-) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/01/14/passenger-plane-skids-runway-gets-stuck-cliff-edge-turkey/
  3. I changed my mind about a new build so I wont be needing this memory G.SKILL TridentZ 32GB DDR4 3200 F4-3200C14D-32GTZKW I'll accept paypal and add cost of shipping. Its gone up in price by over $100 since I bought it. I just want to get back what I paid for it. https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820232376&_ga=2.16126902.1096767441.1513181755-1244662430.1507668838&_gac=1.194218463.1510623702.CjwKCAiAoqXQBRA8EiwAIIOWsrKPxDgBe50YKjB4KOvy4zqa2I8UBTDv2gvxCBuPagmZ1Q3s1lcovBoCww4QAvD_BwE I paid CAD$540 with Tax So its CAD$540 plus shipping for whoever wants it. PM if interested
  4. I am building a new system so I won't be needing this New Asus Sabertooth Z87 which I got from an RMA after the assist fan bearing on my original one started squealing. Local pickup only. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1316793010&requestSource=b
  5. I am building a new system so the part from my old system are up fro grabs. Here are 2 x 8gb kits of G-Skill DDR3. This is the good stuff! I will sell all together or as 2 separate kits. If you already have one of these kits in your system this is a great opportunity to upgrade to 16GB for P3D V4 https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1316793382&edited=true&posted=true&adActivated=true
  6. Those screen shots remind me of why I would never buy anything from Aerosoft. You guys know the story of the Emperors new cloths right?
  7. I would say that the odds of getting FT or any other dev. producing a new CYYZ is zero since the current on is fantastic and probably one of the best airport adddons ever made for FSX and P3D. Although if you look hard enough and I have it has one or two annoying graphical bugs that I reported shortly after it was released but I don't think where ever fixed. Here's a couple of CYYZ videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yK3hh7SbQOU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RwHjsQzDoY
  8. Well I am sure G-sync is great but unless you are using your system for something other than Prepar3D I'd hazard a guess that you wont get better results than setting your display to 30hz and setting your frame rate to unlimited and tune your system to deliver at least 32 or 33 fps minimum. I think the cost of G-sync is to high for P3D. If I was in the market for a new display I would be looking for a 4K tv that supported 40hz and the obvious 30hz and 50hz too. That way as the sim and the hardware improves you can start to aim for 40 fps, then 50fps and ultimately 60fsp which I beat is 10 years away.
  9. How does this Aircraft perform FPS wise by comparison to a PMDG? The FPS in the promo video looks low! Lower than 30 FPS
  10. I did'nt start the sim but Openshade opens the REX preset files. I'll see if I can see any differance when I have time:
  11. Will those presets work with OpenShade it uses the same format as PTA?
  12. the current versions work in 4.1 no update required
  13. OK, I don't have EVNTEK and I know it has a few bells and whistles that REX 4 doesn't have. But I am giving The combination of ASN and REX 4 plus soft clouds a massive thumbs up. I might pickup EVNTEK and PTA on sale at some point but my FS dollars would definitely be going into the Q400 upgrade, TFDi 717, PMDG 747 etc. or more airports or scenery first and a PC upgrade and an VIVE. I'll showcase REX clouds with ASN in this video. Granted very corny video but I don't think clouds in FS get any better than this and there is no shadder editing either. Correct me if I am wrong: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RwHjsQzDoY
  14. Not a perfect analogy but having both EVNTEX and REX 4 is a bit like having both the PMDG NGX and the iFly 737NG in your hanger. Its a mater of preference but they are nearly the same. If you have already bought one why buy the other to do the same job, he says, as puts away his hammer from the Home Depot and takes out his hammer from Lowe's. FS is a big world I rather buy one texture package and an Airplane than 2 texture packages.
  15. I like Matt Davies too. But the problem with his clouds is that they are bright in the wrong places and dark in the wrong places. Typically the top of the cloud is bright and the bottom dark. Not the other way around
