  1. Just noticed that when I use 'instant replay' with my QW 787 - all of the flaps and speedbrakes etc are in the correct positions during the playback - whereas with other aircraft such as PMDG - the speedbrakes and reverse thrust are shown deployed during playback while the aircraft is still in the air. Has QW found a secret that others have been seeking for a long time?

    PMDG 747-8 expansion

    Purchased the above this week and have just tried to have my first two flights. I am experiencing 'stutters' more frequently and for longer duration than I have ever before and I have had two CTDs which I have never experienced before. The only other change I have made to my system is that I have also installed ENVTEX today. Any thoughts?
  3. Thought it was delayed until the 12th September - apparently available now https://www.aerosoft.com/en If you download and try before me - please post a review here - thanks

    Aerosoft A318/A319 professional Released

    Hi - could someone please tell me how I find and access the updater for the new Airbus?. - as referred to by Flyer024 in this thread - I cannot find it.
  7. I have been happily using the Saitek X52 joystick and throttle for probably 10 years or so - and it is still working fine . I have noticed that on occasions, I am inadvertently and incorrectly using the twist grip rudder, and thought I might move to a new joystick setup. So I have been looking at various comments as to the pros and cons of other joysticks and throttles on the market. The Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog joystick and throttle seem to always come out top of the pile in many reviews or comparisons - with great build quality - and the price seems to be the own negative identified. So my quandary - is do I change? and if so what would you recommend. I enjoy flying the PMDG 737, 747, and 777 and also FSLabs A320 (and Aerosofts when available.) I am a total P3D fan., and also like flying military and GA planes to a lesser degree - so I guess an all rounder. I am being drawn to the Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog - but at the back of my mind - I am thinking that it has been around for a long time and must be due to be updated soon. does anyone have any inside track on Thrustmaster's roadmap? Similarly, it is a while now since Logitech acquired Saitek - and they must be ready to launch a new product - maybe competing with the high end Warthog? As you are the guys and gals using joysticks on a regular basis - I would appreciate your honest assessments and comments as to what is currently on the market - and any inside track on joysticks and throttles currently in development. Thank you in advance. ,

    ORBX EU Netherlands TrueEarth released

    Is it intended to install ORBX Truearth over existing ORBX programs such as base packs, vectors and Open GL - or does this replace them?

    Continuous reloading of land, sea and air traffic

    Boeing, Poppet and 3atcos - many thanks for your suggestions. It looks like FSUIPC was the culprit - as when I unclicked the syncing real time - the problem has disappeared. That said, when I started to roll the plane down the runway, I got stutterers every 3/4 seconds - which I did not have before. Any further thoughts? Thanks again to this great community.

    Poppet Thank you - I did not realise that I had to delete generated files - so will do this when I get home tonight. That said - I do have many add on's - will they get deleted?

    Apologies for bumping - just hoping someone can offer me a solution. Any ideas appreciated

    Continuous reloading of land, sea and air traffic

    Yes I have uninstalled P3D from the add/remove program control panel and ran the installer again - several times now. I have also disabled my anti virus and malware programs during installation - but still the problem persists.

    Continuous reloading of land, sea and air traffic

    Many thanks Boeing for your suggestion. On one occasion when I was loading P3D - I got a message telling me that it could not find the traffic.dll file and suggesting that I reinstalled the program. I downloaded a 'fresh' copy - installed it - and still the same problem. I should mention that my programme has worked fine in the past - I have lots of add ons - but fundamentally - as far as I am aware nothing has changed. Any further thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
  14. Hi, I am using V4.2 on Windows 10 64 bit. When I start P3D - it appears to load OK - I have the plane on the runway - and then I keep getting a message box about every 5 seconds telling me that it is loading land, sea and air traffic. I uninstalled all components of P3D V4.2 and then re-installed and the same issue continues - has anyone any thoughts?
