    Flysimware got a new texture artist

    I'm with you on this one.
  2. Very informative! After watching, I've concluded that an OLED is not for me. My viewing patterns would ruin the screen for sure.
  3. Not a conspiracy, but are they running it more often than necessary ?
  4. Strikes me (but I can be a cynical sort at times) that for a manufacturer to design a set that automatically and often runs a process which is shortening the screen life is more than a little self serving. 😉

    Stutters / Pause every 13 seconds over London

    Any chance you have a desktop 'slide show' enabled? I was baffled with essentially the same problem. Turned out it was my desktop background. Even though I had the sim running full screen, the desktop change in the background caused a stutter at precisely 10 second intervals.
  7. My previous system was an OC'd 3570K. It had a Gigabyte z77x-3dh motherboard. Worked fine. Never let me down. Still going strong as a gaming system for my buddy.
  8. Tough crowd! I liked it. One comment, which most promo videos are guilty of IMHO, is cheesy music blasting the viewer rather than a good selection the aircraft sound pallet.

    Xtreme prototypes GLJ25

    I wad going to also post that I am not seeing this behaviour myself. And I did delete the shader... but that simply doesn't make any sense as a cause. Do you have engine mixtures mapped to HOTAS controls? I've caused myself that very issue with jet engines after leaving a high mixture setting on from a previous prop plane flight. Just trying to think of a more reasonable explanation.

  11. Handy chart which shows viewing distance vs screen size (pixel density) which a viewer with 20/20 vision can perceive. https://i.rtings.com/images/optimal-viewing-distance-television-graph-size.png
  12. Nothing blurry about the text on my 58" UHD.

    CAPTAINSIM woes

    Of course you're complaining! 😄 I have to agree with Dave... don't like it, don't buy it. But I have my own rant, perhaps more justified because they already have my money... the glacial pace of upgrading their fleet to 64 bit. But you dont see me blubbering about it on the forum... oh wait, doh... 😁
  14. I've been getting this a lot lately instead of a list of recent threads when I use the 'unread content' button. Is there a known cause and/or a cure for this behavior?
  15. Is it as rough on frame rates in V4 as it was in FSX?
