About Me

  • About Me
    Started out flighing sims in my teens, my first one was Solo Flight on the Atari 8 bit. I got FS9 a few years ago but thought it was all too complicated. I then purchased FSX about 2 years ago and installed it, i thought it ran horribly and then uninstalled it. Just over a yeat ago I found avsim and realised that FSX has to be tweaked and set up in a certan way so I gave it another try on my old dual core system and was hooked.

    I have just purchased a custom built pc and now feel that its time to learn all over again but it sure is fun

    FSX'ers. Understand this please.

    Absolutely Bert, Still fly FSX and haven't tweaked it in over 3 years. Just fire it up and fly. Will swap to P3D one day, maybe when the AA no longer shimmers without the need to run 4k 😉

    FSX on Network

    Depending on the spec of your PC there is very little to be gained perfomance wise by putting your add ons on another PC. I have two PCs and everything is on my Flight Rig, I use the second PC for recording videos so don't suffer any frame drops while recording.
  3. I would say the thing that is holding you back is your precessor P3D like it's predecessor FSX loves high clockspeeds and you will really need at least 4 GHZ if you want to run payware like PMDG in heavy weather with at least 30FPS and even then you will have to compromise

    I think FS Captain does this too, however i did find them a bit robotic in delivery
  6. Keep your FSX installation and then you can build up your P3D collection ( that's what i plan to do) like Bert has said you will be better off with at least a GTX1070 and pref 16GB of ram. The increased power of a new GFX card does help in certain situations such as dense cloud cover. Now the 20 series of cards have come out am looking at getting my 1070 soon then try out whichever version of P3D is current.

    FSX view panning stuttering/tearing

    Do you use nvidia inspector? if your panel is set to 60hz you are better off setting framerare to 30fps in the sim and setting nvidia inspector to half frame rate refresh. That should eliminate the tearing. Details of this can be found in the excellent AVSIM set up guide.
  8. I think this can happen in turboprops due to the propellers not being synced? Some planes model this quite well.

    Yep you can do that or record your own and add it to the video before rendering, that's what i do with my videos. Also throw in some things that people don't expect to hear to keep things fresh 😉 Daz (Dkentflyer)
  10. Hi After taking some time out I have finally been able to get back on the flightdeck and resume my UK tour, I was a bit nervous making this as I was so out of practice. The video showcases some lovely scenery and some not so great flying skills. So if you have a bit of free time why not come aboard and for my own airline's first flight. Kind regards Daz

    MCP not working in QW Avro

    Bit of a long shot but do you have all versions of Sim Connect installed? I think there are 3. I know the Areosoft Airbus does a very similar thing if one of the sim connect versions becomes corrupted

    Finally, people boarding my FSX planes!!

    I was very interested in this product too but if you look on the P3D forum there are quite a few people now having issues with blurries. Like blueshark would love to see someone review this for FSX.

    optimize FSX

    Completely agree with the above comment, Some of them use so many after effects and tricks such as double speed playback they are not much like the sim itself. When i started recording my flights and uploading them i made the conscious decision to record at 30FPS which is what my sim is set to and to playback at 30FPS. It can put new users off if they see a "fantastic" video then try to recreate the flight in their sim and realise it bears little resemblence.

    LGA 1150 CPU for P3D V4

    Like you I have a 4770K and a 4790K running in both my PC's the 4770K is O/C to 4 ghz and the 4790K is running at stock and there is very little difference between them. My advice is wait for P3D V5 and see what sort of system requirements that will need.

    FTX Global - Base and Vector... your comments?

    Global is a must have, not only will it transform your sim but it can actually improve performance in some situations with little or no impact on VAS. I don't own vector but have read that if you have all the options turned on then this can affect VAS.
