  1. Hello, I have been flying the PMDG 747 and love it. However, the only issue I have is to land the aircraft. I learned how to use the autoland which is awesome. However, it doesn't seem too realistic. I have been using FSPassenger X to fly all my plane and 90% if I am using autoland on PMDG (not only 747 but also 777 and 737), the plane ending up either rough landing or receiving tire blow damage due to FPM is 500++. Usually, after flying long haul, I will get so frustrated if I am using autoland to land. The only way to have smooth landing is to manually land it. However, it takes practice to have smooth landing. Just wondering if someone can share their pre-saved FSX flight for landing on PMDG so I can just load it without have to spend time more than 10 minutes to program FMC and additional time to take off the aircraft. Thank you

    WINDOWS 10 and what it mean for us.

    I upgraded my laptop to Windows 10. Here is my experience After upgrading, I tried to run FSX. My FSX is just MS version, not SE. After FSX loaded, I can't see the airplane animated rotating on screen as I supposed to see. It keep giving me error ending up my FSX crashing. Thinking might be because the upgrade issue, so I decide to wipe my laptop and re-install Windows 10 from scratch. Install FSX with some addon like PMDG and Aerosoft, in heavy airport (ImagineSim Singapore), I got horrible performance. I still see blank screen on the section where you should see the aircraft rotating on FSX main page. I got lots of issue running FSX on Windows 10: First, when I load complex aircraft, 1/4 screen will become black resulting the FSX reduce the screen. There is nothing I can do about it. However, it doesn't do it when I load stock aircraft. Second, the rendering is not smooth resulting in lot of stutter. The FPS is quite low compared when I run it on Windows 8.1 Third, I don't think FSX is optimized on Windows 10. Who knows what other addon that won't work on Windows 10? Conclusion, I don't think it is good idea upgrading to Windows 10 if you are planning to use your PC to play FSX for now. How about P3D? Since P3D is FSX based, there is chance simmer will experience issues after upgrading to Windows 10. It is safe to stay away until the vendor start developing to optimize Windows 10. Keep in mind that if it works solid on Windows 7 or Windows 8(.1), don't mess around with it. Keep it as it is. "If it doesn't break, don't touch it!" Thank you

    Traffic Optimizer for FSX/P3D

    That doesn't sound right. I tried what you suggested above and still doesn't work. The Traffic Optimizer needs to be run AFTER the FSX is running not before FSX running. I believe something to do with the connection of Traffic Optimizer and FSUIPC but I still can't point finger to. Other addon that rely FSUIPC is working fine with no issue. Just only Traffic Optimizer I have issue with. Thank you

    Traffic Optimizer for FSX/P3D

    Mine is running on FSX:MS but running same issue too. Still couldn't figure out what went wrong. Any idea why I keep getting this error? > Failed to connect - System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80004005): Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component. at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExceptionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo) at Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect.SimConnect..ctor(String szName, IntPtr hWnd, UInt32 UserEventWin32, WaitHandle hEventHandle, UInt32 ConfigIndex) at AirTrafficManager.Main.openConnection() Thank you

    Traffic Optimizer for FSX/P3D

    I agree with you James. I used the AICull. It reduce traffic but I still suffered from FPS drop. The AICull is only reducing traffic that is NOT flying to the listed airport. The traffic optimizer is an ideal tool because it will not discriminate the AI route, instead it will reduce traffic on certain distance. I used on my low end laptop and it works like a charm (from 3 FPS to 30 FPS). For whatever reason, I couldn't get it to work on my desktop.

    Traffic Optimizer for FSX/P3D

    This is a GREAT tool! However, it only worked couple times for me. Everything else, I always get this error message: > Failed to connect - System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80004005): Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component. at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExceptionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo) at Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect.SimConnect..ctor(String szName, IntPtr hWnd, UInt32 UserEventWin32, WaitHandle hEventHandle, UInt32 ConfigIndex) at AirTrafficManager.Main.openConnection() I tried to look for solution and found nothing. I am running classic FSX Accelerator with latest FSUIPC installed Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

    PMDG 777-300ER Texture Bleeding

    I found the solution already. Whenever I start seeing the texture bleeding. All I need to do is go to FSX display settings and change the filtering. For instance if I was in "Trilinear", I will change it into "Anisotropic" and vice versa. As soon as I made the changes, the texture bleeding disappear right the way. Thank you

    PMDG 777-300ER Texture Bleeding

    I have checked the fsx.cfg and I have HIGHMEMFIX=1. Might be cleaning my PC from dust is a good idea. I will give a try on next weekend I have moved from default eyepoint but still have the bleeding. The first picture, the bleeding only occurs if I am in captain seats. I don't see it if I am in FO and back seat. The second picture, I can see the bleeding no matter where I sit. Thank you PS: How do you put signature on the forum? I am kinda new to this. Best Regard, Marvel Lie
  10. Hello, I noticed that when I fly using PMDG 777-300ER, I always see the texture bleeding inside cockpit. Please refer to the picture. I am not sure what to do to solve this. I have been looking around, googling, searching and I haven't found an answer. My PC specs is AMD FX 6300 8GB DDR3 RAM AMD Radeon HD6670 Windows 7 FSX Accelerator PMDG 777-300ER with SP1c Please see the picture to learn more what I am talking about. Thank you very much Best Regards, Marvel
