  1. Well, on my old rig i noticed an absolutely huge difference in performance once I had tweaked the sim properly. The difference was night and day really. But that was an i7 920. Its not exactly modern at this point ... not that FSX is a modern application either. For now I'm just using Highmemfix and a couple more
  2. Good day, I haven't flown sims in a couple of years and I have since upgraded to a new system. I can't remember exactly which parameters I needed to tweak to make FSX fly somewhat decent. I'm using the old FSX SP2 (non steam version) on an 8600k. Does anybody know of a guide that will sort me out?
  3. Looks great, can't wait to try these out
  4. I couldn't find a changelog, what's new in this version? Also, is this a free update for existing owners?
  5. Or Samdim, he seems to be able to put out ultra high quality graphics while still retaining great framerates
  6. The Q400 performs FANTASTIC, I'd say it's one of the best performing planes in FSX. The performance didn't come at the cost of the systems fidelity tho, the systems rival or even surpass the NGX when it comes to realism.
  7. These issues were what drove me away from using computerised ATC solutions. I dropped them and started flying online instead, with real humans doing the ATC. They can react in a dynamic fashion, they understand the rules and regulation and will in general provide a far better service than any of the ATC programs can. Of course, online ATC has its own set of problems, mainly the very steep learning curve and the lack of online coverage. I don't mind the learning curve, I love learning new stuff, thats what got me into simulators in the first place. The coverage can be a bit of a problem, it's fairly rare to get continous ATC coverage when you're flying a random route online, but I much prefer that to using the flawed ATC programs that basically only parrots ATC rather than providing a dynamic and realistic ATC experience
  8. In addition to this pilots very rarely use autoland. Pretty much the only time they use it is when the conditions force them to or they have to do it to stay current on their autoland qualifications (both pilot and airplane)
  9. It's not uncommon to get assigned a visual approach when you fly IFR in real life.
  10. A new pilot client for vatsim was released last night. It aims to be a very simple client, perhaps you'll have better results with it http://vpilot.metacraft.com/
  11. Themida is a copy protection suite that encrypts executables. It's semi popular among weak malware developers, it can be used to hide the payload code of malware, therefore it's sometimes flagged by antivirus. It's not actually malware in and by itself
  12. I have never noticed the lack of wingflex on the Airbus X, but then again, I don't think I've ever actually looked at the model of the plane while in flight. I've spent 100% of my time in the cockpit. I guess I'm a cockpit kind of sim pilot
  13. There are AFCADs, they are a part of the AoN package. The photoreal textures are an addon to the AoN package - they shouldn't be used without having AoN already installed
  14. I recommend closing down all applications that interface with FSX before you shut down the sim itself. That means close your weather application, EZDok windows etc, then close the sim. It usually works for me
