  1. Mine started crashing earlier this week but I eventually solved it by deleting Realtek audio driver. My system immediately reinstalled it without me asking (naughty) at the subsequent reboot, but this straightened it out and now I can fly again. Only issue I now have is I can't hear the ATC replies, sigh. But that's another thread potentially.
  2. It's only going to get better too when Asobo add the functionality for particles so we can have the black smoke at startup. Yummy!
  3. The TFDI 717 is updated for V5 now. I miss the DC-6 too though.
  4. Microsoft is American though and as we say in Scotland "he who pays the piper, calls the tune".
  5. Whenever I try to change the cfg file the sim refuses to load and I've got to rebuild it. I'm using Notepad++ Any tips/ideas folks thanks
  6. I use AH2 and had a shot of the free trial of On Air. My 2c worth Pros: Slick modern professional interface Easy connectivity to your aircraft Nice reward based progression which unlocks features Attractive map feature Cons: Ongoing subscription model will be more expensive in long run Lack of jobs to connect airports without dead head runs Still some bad spelling and grammar mistakes in primary interface (this is payware remember) So why not use the free trial and see for yourself if you like it enough to start paying for it. In it's current form I didn't but it has potential. I also use FS Economy (on occasion). It's similar but freeware and has a large community. So that's another avenue for you to look at.
  7. Le Francais I am in the same position. I also have an i7 4770K (4.3GHz), 1080ti and 16GB ram and I have been considering my options. Like you I intend to keep my 1080ti. I don't think you could go wrong with an i9 9900K or KS. To get the features shown in the MSFS YouTube videos I can only assume that the code is much better optimised and that it uses multithreading architecture to it's full potential. There would certainly be improvements in P3D too as our CPU's are now quite old, as is the mobo and ram architecture. Interesting and probably expensive times ahead. Good luck with whatever you decide.
  8. As a Genesis fan I was drawn to this post by the title. Derek
  9. Updating to P3D v4.3 today so wanted to update my installation of your Addon Manager. Both MS Edge and Google Chrome are blocking the D/L of the file from your site with a virus warning. Can you advise?
  10. Hi Dave. I think this is what you are looking for. I use it and it works fine. Links: https://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=158165 https://autohotkey.com/download/
  11. And why after all these years does the Follow Me car message still read "the follow me car is arrived". Surely a native English speaker somewhere should have pointed this error out to Umberto by now. Great program nevertheless.
  12. I live in Scotland. What exactly is this 'sun' thing?
  13. I read that if you remove update KB4038788 that resolves it. I fly V4 so can't try it.
  14. Hi Sid I'm considering the exact same move as you. Perhaps you can feed back your findings on this thread so I can build a case for upgrade and dazzle the 'Mrs' with science thus securing a 1070 for my birthday in a couple of weeks. Derek
  15. That looks very interesting. The only issue I can foresee is that at many airports the A/C switch off their transponders on the ground so the full taxi to the gate and park may be missing. It would kill emersion a bit if planes just disappeared after exiting the runway. Is there any way around this?
