  1. Hi PMDG, Please could we have that lovely UTA livery available? with fully accurate and verified airline options configuration would be a plus! :p I love this Aircraft! UTA 747-400 Thanks!
  2. I can't waaaaaiiiit! Thanks Robert! You guys have a great day!
  3. I guess I need buy new computer............
  4. Yes I did if you ready initial post? And yes in p3d graphic settings, after doing the nvcp thing, p3d lists my nvidia but it looks the sim still uses integrated intel, I read that somewhere that Optimus is to blame.. What fps do you get with your Asus laptop? Do you have integrated also I guess? I did check the bios and I confirm I can't see anything to disable integrated :(, and when in windows device manager I disabled the integrated from there and you guessed...screen went pitch black! Had remove battery to turn off computer then restart in safe mode to enable it again. That shows that computer is using mainly the integrated for obvious reasons..
  5. I'm not sure what mobo it's an ASUS laptop and I updated to latest bios, but if I recall I haven't seen any graphic disable option in the bios but need to confirm, I'll check again tomorrow and let you know.
  6. Ok, I have integrated dx10 intel hd graphics and dedicated dx11 nvidia gt635.. I hope this help, Regards
  7. Hi guys, I just recently got P3D 2.4 and on first launch I got this message saying your card is only dx10 etc... The message was related to my dx10 integrated intel !! But I also have a dx11 nvidia card, left out by p3d :((. I did a test flight and got 1-2fps all the way! Then closed p3d then opened nvidia control panel and set p3d.exe to run with high performance nvidia...then re test flight and same 1-2fps. It looks like p3d still won't use my dx11 card even after I did the nvcp stuff.. I'm new to p3d so I might miss something or forgot to do ? Any help to get me started appreciated! Thanks
  8. This is aged topic, but I thought I check.. Are you still looking/interested in the new CRL livery for FS9?
  9. C'est ça t'as raison !.... And no I Don't believe you. BYYYE again....
  10. If you avoid the jet stream for 500nm it is up to you, ASE is no dispatch, the tool we have is just that.Of course down the dispatch office you weigh the average, but ASE is just giving you the avg "blindly", then you use it wisely.ASE will still give you accurate average based on the conveniently spaced sations and your loaded flightplan and on your loaded flightplan ASE see the wpts and how far they are from each other.
  11. You didnt tell when the data was entered. on the ground? or just after TOC? show the actual pictures showing what you're saying, this is just saying for me, so this post is useless. Go on your KJFK-KLAX flight and just after the TOC take the pics to show us, if you dont wanna do that then dont say anything... Bye..
  12. Did you write AVERAGE? yeah...thought so... Aviation is no statistic when it comes to planning, it is estimations and will always be. U can use historical data/statistic for weather prediction, You dont plan a slow aircraft flight over short distance at low altitude the same as you do for a jet over 6,000nm at high altitude. Have you guys used for example, long range 5,000nm-8,000nm .85 cruise chart?, Im talking about this one for 747-400, same stuff for other jets. How would you enter the chart and what would be the first variable needed to start with? Distance Second? Wind So on this KSFO-YSSY example, you would look up 6570nm then go up the chart to wnd REF line then use what wnd figure? yeah AVERAGE wnd figure for the ALL 6570nm, then continuing on for the rest. And also in the Enroute Fuel/Time Ground to Air miles conversion chart for a distance of 4,000nm for example, what wnd component they're talking about for this 4,000nm distance in the chart? AVERAGE, you got me? This isnt C172 flights over 200nm we're here for right? this is PMDG forum so I guess most of people here are about JETs flying over long distances especially if on this 747-400 subforum.So why keep talking about 172 which has nothing to do with 747-400 in regards to how you plan the fuel required for the flight, the time enroute etc. And your example about winds suddenly changing over wpts, you know quite well that that doesnt exist ! so give example about some true and about a JET flight over 2,000nm for example not a 172 over 200nm to see how you go, Im sure you looked at pressure charts before. And "...Imagine the cumulative error over a 6000 mile trip at 470 knots TAS and 20,000+ lbs/hr fuel burn rate if you were to treat the "average" winds for 30 waypoints as being the "same" as the discrete actual winds for each of those 30 waypoints...." Of course there will cumulative error if you're taking your 172 example over 6000nm from 200nm.you must compare what's comparable, you cannot apply this example over 6000 with this method especially if you're not gonna fly this 172 on 6000nm trip . Well give me a 747 example, and talking about planning, plan that 6,000nm trip at 470kts and 20,000lbs/hr with 30 waypoints winds and post your outcome and you'll tell us what winds you used So after you've done your planning with your charts you've got your winds to put in FMC then you get an ETA/fuel at destination which will saty pretty constant depending how good your planning was/accurate wnds aloft prediction was, and the average will give you an ETA/fuel at destination too but wont be constant only to settle to ABOUT same figure as with each individual wpts near TOD.If you fly a 2,00nm (example) with 15 wpts and wnds at each waypoints are pretty much same like 10-20degrees differences and 5-10kt difference, entering the avg will give you an eta/fuel pretty constant and consistant to individually entered ones.If you have some head then some tail larger differences, the result wont be as steady. And ABOUT or CLOSE TO is OK in aviation, it is not down to 1min or 1lb of fuel over long distance, not even on 200nm trip on 172.I'm not talking about challenges/air time rally/precision contests etc, it is of course different matter. This why we do checkpoints to track progress, this is nature of aviation
