  1. Are US and Canadian carriers well represented? I do 99% of my flying in North America. Watching this thread. Let us know if any AI takes to the sky! LOL
  2. Setting Vsync to 1/2 refresh rate in NI doesn't seem to function at all on my system. P3DV4.1
  3. IIRC, this is what I did: To disable Windows 10 Automatic Updates: Go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services Scroll down to Windows Update in the resulting list Double click the Windows Update Entry In the resulting dialog, if the service is started, click 'Stop' Set Startup Type to Disabled Please Note: if you disable Windows 10 Updates, your system may be at risk from attack Windows Defender will not be updated (meh) Operating System patches will not be applied (oh my) You will not be able to use the Windows Store (No loss here) Windows Apps will not update and possibly fail (I'll risk it) On the plus side your sim will continue to work!
  4. Your words Rob. I wondered how this helps AA. (Still do)
  5. Ive used widescreen since day one also. What's the issue?
  6. I was adding that to my post as you asked the question LOL
  7. AFAIK tearing occurs mainly when you're panning up and down and looks like a discontinuity between an upper and lower screen area. Vsync is the mechanism to address it. I don't seem to get tearing in P3D regardless of the Vsync setting either in the sim graphic setting or in Nvidia Inspector (the later I've read many times does not function in P3D.) That said, I do use Vsync in sim as a frame rate limiter, with frames set to unlimited, as this generally gives me the smoothest experience. I'll switch my monitor between 30hz and 60hz depending on what and where I'm flying.
  8. No issues here. I rolled back to 1703 and turned off all updates.
  9. Try mipmap VC panels set on.
  10. I feel your pain. If i have any issues, I'll go back go 11.05 without hesitation. I'm an XP customer, not a beta tester.
  11. Me too! I made a backup of my whole XP11 folder so I'm ready to give it a whirl. Best I can tell, if you have Nvidia GPU and delete your preferences (except controllers) and shadercache, it should go okay.
  12. The method described in the post above yours by vortex seems to be working well for me, but thanks for this additional option.
  13. There are some very accurate PSU calculators floating around. Since you already know exactly what your system components are, you should be able to determine if your setup will tolerate the HPU upgrade with a high degree of confidence. I'd suggest you google around, bu here's one I used: https://seasonic.com/wattage-calculator
  14. Looks great! Planning any flights over Toronto anytime soon?
  15. Well that's essentially what Intel is specing, but as we know, this is seldom done practice.
