    Hyperthreading off works great!

    I did the opposite for my 4770k: everything on core 0-1 (I am using HT btw, works better for my old CPU), and P3D as the sole process using cores 2-7.

    QualityWings 146 Released for V4

    Plus one. I guess the one way us customers can help is putting our money where our mouth is and buy. I certainly have!

    PMDG 747-8 Being released today

    Judging by some of the other comments, the virtual 748 may well have the same commercial fate as its real-world counterpart (never made any money for Boeing). I don’t think that’s the realistic simulation PMDG had in mind 😉

    PMDG 747-8 Being released today

    $70? What happened to “slightly” increased prices? This is more then double of what the 777-300 expansion cost! I feel ripped off actually. The 744 was already very expensive and I purchased under the impression the 748 would be added shortly thereafter, for pricing in line with previous upgrades. Never mind that it took years and years for this to come out - now it costs as much as standalone product at most other vendors. Frankly, i think they are seeing what they can get away with. I already payed full price twice for FSX and P3D versions of the same products (737, 777) and I think I’m done paying these prices.

    Ultimate 787 - V1.1.1 Released

    Same here! For those of us with limited time this feature is fantastic and beats the increased sim rate “solution”. I really hope this feature will be integrated into other aircraft.
  6. Thank you Nico, I’ll give that a try.
  7. Hi Nico, Would you happen to have a download link for the latest version that supports P3D v4.1? I am reluctant to upgrade to v4.2 after reading some comments on this forum. Thank you!
  8. I'm not normally someone who participates in threads like this, but I have to say that I agree with the overall sentiment expressed here. A modest upgrade price would have perhaps been justified, but charging full price for what is essentially the same work recompiled to 64 bit is a pretty shameless money-grab. In fairness I need to disclose that I have never programmed gauges or dll's. I am mainly coding in Python or Java (which are interpreted and hence highly portable) but I have also used plenty of C and VHDL in a former life and I think I know a little bit about memory management and architecture, and I can't imagine a scenario under which Brian couldn't have re-used the vast majority of the code (after re-factoring), as well as all of the sound files, and ancillary files. Going forward I wont purchase anything else from FS2Crew and will go back to reading my own checklists - to be honest, It's kinda more fun anyway :-)
  9. I think that statement is essentially the gist of the story, although IPC and memory improvements play an important role as well. Personally, I'm sitting on a good 4770k (4.6Ghz) with 2400Mhz RAM and I haven't seen anything recently that convinced me it's worth my time and money to upgrade. Hopefully the next upgrade cycle will change that.

    V4 patch for Henrik's global ship package

    Henrik's packages and continued support are worthy of some sort of community award. Can't fly without it anymore.
  11. I just had the same decision to make and went with the 1080gtx instead as it was significantly cheaper. I'm running P3D v4 and am very happy with the decision. Not convinced the Ti would make a big difference in P3D.

    Anyone running P3Dv4 on a 4790K?

    I'm running a 4700k at 4.5ghz with a 1080 and am very happy with the results. Will skip the 7700k and wait another generation or perhaps even two.

    Who has been fooling who?

    I think it's more that this has been a long time coming and plenty of developers have had time to get ready. That being said, we always knew sceneries would be the lesser issue and that complex aircraft are going to be the bigger challenge, so it's no surprise that we have quite a few sceneries ready shortly after release, but no complex aircraft are ready yet (A2A 172 being the exception).
  14. MSXML 4.0 was indeed the issue - thanks heaps, I had missed that in the discussions!
  15. I had the same issue but a reboot cured it for me. On a different note: is anyone else having issues with SIDs and STARs not displaying in the FMC? I updated the AIRAC (via Navigraph) but could not select SIDs in YSSY, nor STARs in VHHH (both files exist in the \Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\Level-D Simulations\navdata folder though) from the FMC, however the runways existed.
