  1. Man... the positivity lately is just outstanding. This sim has really come a long way in a relatively short amount of time. Go Go Go!!
  2. That sucks Joe. I'm terribly happy with mine right now, it's by far the best thing I've ever bought for flight sim gear. Sorry to hear that though. I'll try that odourboy. I got it figured out for just a single axis to both throttles, and even though that's all I'll ever use for the PMDG... I just want to be able to operate both engines independently because I *can*! I figured out how to map the speed, heading, and altitude to the knobs... have you figured out how to map the course? Not really a key component, but I'd like it to be there... because you know... It would be cool!
  3. Just got the Orion 2 Throttle f/18 version and it seems to be acting up a bit with the PMDG 737. I am trying to set the axis for the throttles and it doesn't seem to like what I'm doing. Any help? It seems to only control one of the engines and set the reversers when I try to map it. hmmm...
  4. I get about 80 or 90 fps at jfk in the PMDG with those exact settings and setup. (I have a 4080) no stutters at all. I encountered by first stutter last night flying from Dulles to KBOS. I was flying over KJFK in very crowded airspace at FL250 on a mostly clear day. It had to load in the traffic, NYC, the airports... if stuttered for maybe a second or two then it was smooth sailing to KBOS. Pretty amazing stuff.
  5. thanks so much. I'll give it a go! Plastic rudder pedals just don't work for me. I have the Thrustmaster and every year or so I'll try to make myself use them but, maybe I'm to tall and I can't find a place for them under my desk for them to be comfortable, maybe my feet are too big, but I'm so incredibly sloppy with them. If I have an extra 3-5 hundred laying around sometime I'll pony up for a set of good ones potentially, but the twist axis has always worked fine for me.
  6. Thank you for the advice, Bob. No thanks. Anyone else have some help for the question in the OP?
  7. Hey All, Can someone help me out with their T1600 sensitivity and dead zone settings that work for them? I feel like it's WAY too twitchy and I'd love to see someone's set up who is somewhat proficient with the aircraft. Further, as a bit of a tip, I was flummoxed for a while by my rudders constantly going out of alignment and causing my autopilot to cut out (to disastrous results). One of the issues was my T1600 twist Z axis was word not allowed and I had to replace the stick, but I also found out that the number pad which I use for camera presets are also used for rudder settings. Particularly the 0 and 5 numpad keys which I use most often and have serious effects on the rudder. I erased those and I'm golden. Hopefully someone runs into this and can benefit, as it sure caused me a lot of heartache! Thanks for the sensitivity settings in advance!
  8. I like to make the Sim as realistic as possible. That means planning flights, going over charts, thinking about fuel and procedures, etc. Navigraph and study level aircraft help me do that. You don't see a RL pilot sleepwalking to their plane, firing it up, and just taking off somewhere... it takes thought and time. But you do what makes you happy.
  9. Exactly, that's why I said I was aware tweaking isn't necessary. But I heard a number of things in the bios and DX12 things are necessary.
  10. Hey there, getting my new PC tomorrow and I've been seeing a lot of things about what to turn on in the Bios, NVidia CP, and whatnot. I understand there's not a lot of tweaking to be done, but I'm also seeing a lot of folks coming in after upgrading who go through terrible trials and errors getting things right. As mine will be a completely fresh build with nothing installed, I'd sure like to skip all that. If anyone has a little extra time, might I ask you to point me to a good link or get some bullet points for how to get things up and whatnot? It's been a long time since I had a completely 100% new rig and I appreciate any help. Thanks so much!

  11. Good news. Just saw a random post somewhere describing the same issues from ages ago. Likely nothing to worry about. Thanks for the reply.
  12. Getting back into the Sim and this was a thing when I had to take a break a year or so ago. I remember it caused stutters and possible crashes. Hopefully that was taken care of?
  13. Good looking out, Jazz. I saw that too. Appreciate it.
