  1. Yes, but I would like the 747v2 to be given priority after the 777-300ER release.
  2. Might be a co-incidence, but my occasional 737 freezes appear to only happen when I'm fiddling with the CDU (while cruising). Also, the 737 freezes don't seem to recover (unlike the 777 freezes). Anyone else? The moment of my latest freeze :(
  3. It's hard to say for sure Roger. Sometimes I can go for a couple of weeks without a freeze.
  4. I was just over in the Prepar3d forums and the P3D head developer explained the issue affects many games in W8 that implemented joystick controls a certain way (which included FSX). He continued that the problem can be fixed by re-coding joystick control in the game itself - which they are doing for the upcoming patch for Prepar3d V2. Of course since FSX is dead it will never be fixed on that platform. But most people will upgrade from FSX to P3D over the next couple of years anyway.

    777 freezing

    Same as above for NG and T7 except my Task Manager says FSX "not responding" Note: Have never overclocked my PC or Video Card.
  6. Got a freeze today unfortunately :-(
  7. Ok, three flights with two of decent length and no freezes so far. Bris to Auck Tokyo to Osaka Bris to Perth. See how we go this weekend.
  8. Will do as instructed and report back. The freezes don't necessarily happen on every flight so it may take a few days to see if it makes any difference. Cheers.
  9. I've been using the uiautomationcore.dll supplied by PMDG from day one. http://downloads.precisionmanuals.com/file_library/UIAutomationCore.zip It doesn't help with the freezes I'm afraid. AFAIK this dll just stops FSX from becoming unstable and crashing on Win7 and Win8.
  10. Yes, I get freezes on the 737 and 777. It may occur once or multiple times during flight or not at all, and a freeze might last for a few seconds or several minutes, and occasionally it does not recover at all. No idea what's causing it.
  11. How depressing is it to have 16gig ram, an i7, and a 3gig GTX780 SC but only get 8-12 fps when approaching an ORBX airport. Answer - VERY. FSX is such an outdated piece of junk. Bring on a successor that is optimised for todays CPU and GPUs.

    777 freezing

    Hmmm, I occasionally experienced this when flying the pmdg 747. FSX would freeze for about 5 minutes and then suddenly come alive again. The problem seems to have gone away now. I suspect it was a result of fooling around with various config file settings.

    777 crashes FSX ?

    I don't know if you are having the same issue but my FSX crashes if I have the 777 as the default aircraft on startup. Through experimentation I changed the default plane and flight and the problem went away.
  14. Hi All, my Joystick disconnects playing FSX if I click into another Window outside the FSX application and then go back to FSX. This problem is driving me insane! I'm using Windows 8.
