  1. Hi I am looking at new gaming laptop with I7 10750H processor. It has to be a laptop and my current rig (specs below) give quite acceptable performance in V5. I have choice of GTX 1660 TI 6GB or for £100 more RTX 2060 6GB (not super). A comparison I found says: Bottom line: there is no clear winner here, but if you can swing it, the GeForce RTX 2060 is still the best upper midrange card (or lower high-end card) that we have seen since the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. This is especially true if you plan to play at 1440p. However, if you plan to only play at 1080p and/or need to keep the GPU budget under $300, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is a very close second. GET NOTIFICATIONS FROM PC GAMER I don't play other gaming. Just P3DV5 or MSFS 2020 (possibly) Will I be playing at 1080p? Will the RTX2060 make noticeable difference? Thanks for any feedback
  2. My advice: Buy the Lear and the Falcon if you don’t already enjoy them. Buy direct from FSW - updates can be quick and often.
  3. Please someone give me some inspiration! 40 hours since release and still not downloaded! I thought the store version would be better and preordered the full version. Hit the button at midnight Monday. Still waiting 38gb left. The stupid Microsoft account thing keeps sending me round in circles. Can't get support. Can't see any error codes. Can't get in Discord. Option 1. Forget it - ask for a refund. Buy it on Steam? At least with SE it downloaded eventually! Option 2. Delete installation and start again. Option 3. Phone for support? Meanwhile- back to my relatively awesome P3DV5! Thanks.
  4. Nice review Ryan. Great aircraft. No the lights are on/off.
  5. But if PMDG brought out another NGX would you part with $80 odd? V2 was THE most detailed LearJet. I didn’t like the speed control (and said so) but the cockpit was beautiful. To me $40 for even a refresh after 4 or so years seems a good investment. Buying tonight...
  6. Simple answer. I’ve not read the thread. Get the RXP!
  7. I can't solve this issue but I've spent all evening very frustrated with ORBX. I have all my sceneries working nicely in P3DV5 - but in a Library on my SSD. I want to link P3DV4 to the same sceneries using symbolic links using a dummy folder as V4 Orbx folder. Instructions even in the forum are clear as mud! Has anyone achieved this? Dean
  8. I’ve had repeated crashing problems with the latest ASP3D update. Gone back to Beta2.
  9. OH - I missed that new button. I do hope you are right. Anyway - while we wait I will try version 2.x in P3DV5 for now.
  10. Website now live - release coming soon! https://xtremeprototypes.com/en/product_GLJ25_se_v3r0.asp Offers an upgrade price for existing users. Nice. Version 2 already had the most detailed virtual cockpit Certainly a 'day 1 purchase for me' - although I note the speed hold is still there in the redesigned autopilot panel. I’ll have to try to avoid that for realism purposes but sometimes its difficult with this rocketship! Dean 😊
  11. The Lear V35 has recently been improved. The Falcon certainly doesn’t grate on me True they are not Carenado quality - but they work properly and have outstanding support! They are both great fun to fly. The Lear reminds you it was developed from a jet fighter. The Falcon is just a mighty powerful beast!
  12. With V5's improved performance and a larger screen I am increasingly flying virtual cockpit but adding a smaller 'new view' with a view from the outside trailing the aircraft. I call it a 'chase plane' but that's a coincidence. I am using Chase Plane. Once that view is open I can right click it and select which view but I am struggling to get it to give me the view I want. It gives a good 'F11' view but I can't adjust it left or right or up or down. I seem to remember being able to set this more easily in the past. So - a refresher or hints would be appreciated please - within P3Dor Chase Plane? Come on Hot Fix - these pesky invisible walls are everywhere! Dean
  13. Hi - Its worth the effort - set and forget. Plenty of prompt support too! I bought the RXP530/430 pair last week to add to my capability in some aircraft like the Bellanca Super Viking from Lionheart Creations.
  14. I downloaded the latest Simlink update from Navigraph yesterday. It installed and recognised P3DV5. However, when I load Chart Cloud in Chrome Browser it says 'Simulator not recognised.' Has any one else had this problem or been successful since the update please. Dean
  15. I've just bought this pair. Great products of course! 😊 It would be easy to fall back on the 530 alone but I'd like to see how to use the two units to comlement each other. I selected 500 rather than the 530 to take out the radios and give a larger display. I've enabled cross-fill. What do others use the extra 430 for please. I'm sure it is far more than a good looking back up unit?
  16. Surely if you go to a website you trust to buy something you want its fine to switch protection off briefly. You have have to be wary taking sweets from strangers (so I'm told) but that doesn't stop you going in the sweet shop to buy some! 😊
  17. Excellent review Nick. The scenery looks so close to a real video recording rather than a sim. I'm delighted with V5 and as you say - it is the future of Flight Sim! Thoroughly recommend your video and at just 12 minutes its a great view for anyone on the fence about buying. Also Chock / Alan has a longer and very informative review video at nearly 55 minutes. Dean
  18. I had this twice a few days ago. Disabled my antivirus and all worked fine. Great rule.
  19. I have many add ons working fine and detecting. However there a number of these (all Orbx sceneries or airports) (9 so far) where the next time I restart P3D it is asking again - and again - and again. Some of the Orbx items are in the P3DV5 folder and some in the Orbx library? Also, I have Chase Plane set to autoload with the launch of P3d V5 but each time is it prompting me to click a button to authorise it. Is this normal? Thanks
  20. I’m the same. Autopilot works but no AFCS lights. What a wonderful aircraft again!!!
  21. Awesome - ready to download NOW!
