  1. Ditto. Seems beauty is only skin deep.
  2. I'm too young but I imaging these silicon shortages being similar to various rationings and shortages from industry shifts during WW1 and WW2?
  3. The electronics drought shows how frail companies and supply lines are in today's business world. 'Just in time' production my word not allowed; so many corporate failures of flexibility and adaption.
  4. From my dealings, lets just say I'm not very interested in PMDG's products any more. They have some nice products but they also are not faultless.
  5. If you are mirroring the first screen, no or virtually none. If you are extending the screen space, yes. How much will depend on how you use it and your system.
  6. Thank you for the chart info; I agree going back to the very first sim would make the chart more interesting. I pity the experience anyone gets using those specs with those sims as it will be very sub-optimal.
  7. FSX is a strange beast. CPU speed is absolute king. I'm not sure what you are expecting performance wise but this is FSX with my recent CPU upgrade. Might give you an idea what to expect? Best of luck.
  8. I made what I would consider a huge jump. Overall, while faster, I'm disappointed in the actual results. There is no way I'd be happy with upgrading the cpu on your system.
  9. Just a fyi, I recently reinstalled FSX DVD version and the online activation did work. I was actually shocked because the last several times I installed FSX a few years ago a phone call was required for activation.
  10. As I listed years ago, the PMDG DC-6 is far from perfect. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/516911-pmdg-dc-6-current-state-seems-a-bit-underwhelming/ I'm back into FSX and see PMDG still didn't address much. (the see-through engine area isn't even fixed?!! pathetic) So I'm trying to find work-arounds for their prerogatives: throttle increase/decrease using game controller buttons Propeller Low/Propeller High using keyboard keys Mixture control using keyboard keys Shift+E then # door activation using keyboard keys map appropriate lights to default keyboard keys Will the payed version of FSUIPC be able solve everything on my list? From what I've read LINDA 'only' does controller buttons, not keyboard keys, correct? I'm not familiar with FSUIPC limitations so any help or redirects are appreciated. Thank you.
  11. Where can I download old versions of LINDA? Like these... Thank you.
  12. I know its not realistic but sound is a huge part of the atmosphere. For examples, FSPassengers only has its canned ATC chatter and passenger loading ambient sounds heard when inside the VC. Or the landing gear whine and thud I'd like to hear when in Spot View. I know the Concorde X has a check box in its special Options pull down menu that allows for this called "Play Sounds in Ext Views". I find this a very nice feature. Is there a cfg setting or tweak that allows cockpit sounds to be heard in outside views for other planes?
  13. I will 2nd this. It has become my favorite FSX utility. You can try the trail version out btw.
  14. TLDR: The red numbers in the jpg are the bottom line percentage performance gains. I wanted FS2020 but had a good inkling it would most likely be a bit of a mess on release so I waited for feedback before purchasing. IMO sure enough, seeing how 1/2 done FS2020 currently is, and how it will be for a while, I have not yet purchased it and won't until the study sim tubeliners are sorted. So instead, seeing as though I have hundreds of $$$ invested in FSX, I decided it was finally time for me to upgrade and see if I can stretch FSX's legs a bit more. The end result is the below accurate as possible personal benchmarks I have done before and after an upgrade of cpu, motherboard and memory. Hopefully this is helpful for other FSX owners. I've tried to keep it apples to apples as possible. The graphs I now see are upside down, oh well, deal with it. 🙂 Both cpu setups were run on reasonable fresh win10 installs. Used 4 distinctly varied scenery/location save points. Recorded 35 seconds of stabilized info with MSI Afterburner. This is bare bones stock FSX retail with Acceleration. (nice to see the MS activation servers are back online, used to have to phone in the code) Important fsx.cfg Settings: AffinityMask=14 BLOOM_EFFECTS=0 TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT=40 UPPER_FRAMERATE_LIMIT=0 WideViewAspect=True TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=1024 NUM_LIGHTS=8 AIRCRAFT_SHADOWS=1 AIRCRAFT_REFLECTIONS=1 COCKPIT_HIGH_LOD=1 LANDING_LIGHTS=1 AC_SELF_SHADOW=0 EFFECTS_QUALITY=2 GROUND_SHADOWS=1 TEXTURE_QUALITY=3 IMAGE_QUALITY=0 See_Self=1 D3D10=0 CLOUD_DRAW_DISTANCE=8 DETAILED_CLOUDS=1 CLOUD_COVERAGE_DENSITY=8 LENSFLARE=1 DAWN_DUSK_SMOOTHING=1 IMAGE_COMPLEXITY=5 SmallPartRejectRadius=1.0 AirlineDensity=100 GADensity=100 FreewayDensity=100 ShipsAndFerriesDensity=100 LeisureBoatsDensity=100 IFROnly=0 AIRPORT_SCENERY_DENSITY=5 LOD_RADIUS=5.500000 MESH_COMPLEXITY=100 MESH_RESOLUTION=25 TEXTURE_RESOLUTION=29 AUTOGEN_DENSITY=5 DETAIL_TEXTURE=1 WATER_EFFECTS=7
  15. I know its OT but just wanted to say AGREE FULLY! Watching a video to hear only words is useless 99% of the time.
