  1. I use SmartStarter now for starting up my 737NGX with all my panels on their proper monitor. http://www.flightsim4fun.com/smartstarter.html Basically you create setup your 737NGX as you want and displays as you need and save that flight. SmartStart then lets you pick your plane, livery, startup config, and location and it injects all that data into that saved flight file. Then in P3d you load up that save file and your displays will be setup correctly and your plan at whatever airport you need for your flight. It's a really great app. I haven't had any issues with black screens on startup though.
  2. I had this kinda happen too but only when I moved undocked 737NGX panels to another monitor. The culprit was something with the lastest GSX update conflicting with P3D. Uninstalled GSX and everything went back to normal.
  3. Pretty much. For a 29" monitor the 21:9 is just over 1" wider but about 4" shorter. http://www.displaywars.com/29-inch-21x9-vs-29-inch-16x10 I personally prefer a wider than taller desktop. I also use this pc/monitor for more than just FSX so the wider desktop has other benefits for me. But again... that's me.
  4. Yeah, I was testing my displays when I took the photo. Here's some more pics for comparison. MFD displays are readable to me and I have no problem with the view. Works perfectly fine to me, but like you said, some may not like it. How the PMDG 777 Starts up by default. 777 zoomed out one click to .60 My EZDok View for the now. How the PMDG 737NGX starts by default 737NGX zoomed out one click to .60 My 737NGX EZDok view Once I get new mini MIP built this how'll mostly fly though.
  5. I love my new 21:9 29" monitor. Replaced my triple monitor setup with it. Here's a look at the 737NGX on mine.
  6. Same here. Mine is out for delivery right now so I'll get to play with it tonight. It's going to replace my Saitek X45 that's dying a slow death.
  7. Are you able to undock the display screens and move them to another monitor?
  8. Mine looks ok using nvidia surround with these settings and halo.bmp if you wanna try it. RUNWAY_LIGHTS_APPROACH_SCALAR=0.8 RUNWAY_LIGHTS_STROBE_SCALAR=1.0 RUNWAY_LIGHTS_SURFACE_SCALAR=1.3 RUNWAY_LIGHTS_VASI_SCALAR=0.8 http://www.mediafire.com/download/p5sjpnmal18qhrl/halo.bmp AI aircraft departing KSFO

    Latest cycle is 1310 which came out Sept 19. http://www.navigraph.com/FmsDataDownload.aspx 777 came with AIRAC cycle 1309. There's a section in the Intro PDF on how you can change the cycle end date to get rid of that message if you don't want to update.
  10. what happens when you jump to an external view? You just see nothing?
  11. If you have a 3 monitor setup just divide the window_size in the panel.cfg file by 3 and use that number. It works for me.
  12. That's cause it's Best Buy. Mainstream gaming has gone to online delivery via Origin, Steam, etc... Any gamer knows that. Heck, even consoles are moving to online delivery for the future. And no, I don't ever see mobile devices like an iphone (and sometimes the DS and PSP/VITA) being the future of gaming. The hardware will just never compare to a PC or Console. It's good for a 'mobile' game to pass the time with or for kids but that's about it.
  13. I don't think it is. PC gaming hardware already surpassed the next gen consoles (XB one, PS4). There's more developers for PC games than there are for all consoles combined (source). I wouldn't call it obsolete just yet. I think the PC will always win as the best gaming platform because the better hardware will produce the better visuals, and I think I developers know that. Consoles are mainly popular cause they're cheaper and in the living room. With all the restrictions, dropped backwards compatibility, subscription fees, etc... that next gen consoles are bringing I wouldn't be surprised to see a surge of people going back to the PC Platform.
  14. Looks like a telephoto shot. The fence is probably nowhere near the aircraft. Good photo though.
