  1. I have a new computer. I want to move my PMDG birds over to that machine. Do I need to delete the bird on the old machine before I add it to the new machine? Thank you in advance. Ron Oines
  2. You are dealing with an word not allowed here. How do I properly uninstall my B747? Thank you in advance. Ron Oines
  3. Thank you very much for the help Sander. I hope I will know where to look next time. :smile:
  4. What video? You are dealing with a knuckle head here, but I can't find the video mentioned above. Ron Oines
  5. Can anyone tell me what the five 747's when for in the auctions? I was going to bid on them but I could never find out how to connect the the 'chat' channel. No info on the web site that I could find. I don't do Facebook or Twitter so I couldn't try them. Thank you for the info in advance. Ron Oines
  6. Thank you for the information. I was thrown off by the talk about the Queen with nothing mentioned about the DC-6 I am looking forward to its release too. Glad to hear it is in Beta Testing.
  7. Did I miss something somewhere? The October update specifically said the DC-6 was next and it would be the first aircraft for all flavors of simulators. Thanks for you response. Ron Oines
  8. I posted the same problem in another topic in this forum. I compared the performance in FSX to P3D and found P3D wanting. It appears to me that there is a speed wall in P3D on my system which has no problem running FSX. Ron Oines
  9. After reading this far into the forum, I suspect no one else is having the problem I am having with the 777 running in P3D. On my system, running the 777 in FSX I get 20fps both with both inside and outside views. Running the 777 in P3D I get 20fps with an outside view but in the virtual cockpit I get 9-10fps. I have both FSX and P3D set to display 20fps. I installed P3D using both LM's and PMDG's recommended settings. I have tried changing all of the video settings with little or no effect on the frame rates in P3D. Needless to say, 9-10fps is not satisfactory so I am doing all of my flying in FSX. The other problem I have with P3D is that all of the video seems considerably darker than it is in FSX. Messing with the brightness and contrast on the monitor doesn't seem to be the answer. Maybe it is just me, but I like the FSX display more than the P3D display because it is brighter and sharper and faster. (picky, picky) Thank you for any suggestions. Ron Oines
  10. Thank you for the responses guys. I did turn off FXAA which provided some improvement. I believe FSX is still more focused that P3D but P3D is usable. Ron Oines
  11. Everything seems to be working after loading the 777 base software except all of the info on all of the displays is out of focus and the smaller numbers are completely unreadable. I have set up the sim with all of the recommended settings including those from LM. I have not be able to find an adjustable parameter that changes the focus problem. Has anyone else had this problem? Has anyone fixed this problem? Ron Oines

  15. Here is my latest experience. Sixteen hours and NO PAUSES. (Doesn't mean the problem is solved, but looks good for now.) I don't know what the AffinityMask setting is but if I do the following all 8 cores of my SandyBridge get involved in the action and NO PAUSES. This is what I do about the affinity thing: Start FSX getting the default Air Trike or whatever that is called and immediately go the Windows Task Manager and select the Processes tab and locate and right-click on fsx.exe. Go down to list of options and click on Set Affinity .... I select the CPU 0 box and uncheck it by clicking in the box and go down and click OK. Now find fsx.exe and right click on it again. Click on Set Affinity... and this time put the check back in the CPU 0 box and go down and click OK. You are now finished. If you go to the Performance Tab and click on View then select CPU History and One Graph Per CPU you will see over time that all 8 cores are active. As I said before, I don't know what the Affinity Mask is (maybe Sydney Turner above gets the same results) but I just know I haven't had a problem with this yet. I know someone here has a final and better answer but I found this one has worked for me so far. The PMDG sims seem to load faster and I have had no pauses since I activated all 8 cores. Some of you have bigger and better processors and are not having a problem, but my Sandy Bridge seems to get along well with using it all. I will be following this thread to learn how others have worked out a solution to the eight minute pause. Ron Oines
