  1. The forecast in the 787 is different to other Boeing’s. You need to input the flight levels first and then request
  2. No Tomatoshade for V5 and from what I’ve seen on here, it’s unlikely there ever will be
  3. I mean on the PFD not the MCP? So on the bar above the attitude display where HDG SEL is shown etc
  4. What was the speed mode shown on the PFD? SPD? Does it do the same when in VNAV PTH or VNAV SPD? And if you try to throttle back with the A/T engaged, I assume it doesn’t throttle back? Just a way to confirm AT is definitely fully engaged
  5. 310kts at 31000? Would be venturing on over speed territory there surely, what was the Mach? What speed/nav modes are shown on the PFD? If you pull back the throttles, does engine power change?
  6. If you click into an airline that’s in your installed list, you can see at what % it’s been randomly compiled at
  7. I don’t understand why people complain about EA. It’s clearly defined as a beta feature, and as such, will have numerous issues. Fair enough if people want to point out the issues as this may help devs etc. But to complain about them is odd. Personally, I started with EA on when first using V5 but after several flights I decided to go with it off until it’s a completed feature
  8. Don’t copy the folder, it will cause all sorts of issues long term. Uninstall and reinstall, from memory I think you need to select “Options” during the Initial install screen and that will let you define install location
  9. It’s an issue with EA, which is a beta feature. Either need to turn EA off and then you can leave reflections on or use EA but turn reflections off
  10. Interesting. I thought Maxime mentioned in a post a few weeks ago that it would be configurable. Might be worth a post on their forums
  11. I haven’t updated yet but is there not an option to turn off shaders for VC and just use them for other thing such as cloud, sun etc
  12. Nice, those sound good temps. I may need to undervolt but will see how it goes as I’ve read good things, it’s a DTR (Desktop Replacement) so the chassis is pretty thick and allows for good cooling rather than a standard thinner laptop. Hopefully will receive it next week
  13. Nice! I’m waiting on a new custom build laptop to arrive which will be a AMD 3700X, RTX2070 8GB, 32GB DDR4, and 144Hz display.
  14. I’m a laptop user as well, what’s spec is your machine out of interest?
  15. Exactly how I’ve got mine. My Add-ons folders in Documents just contain the XMLs. The actual add-ons are stored in another folder on another drive
  16. Just an update on this, anyone had trouble with PCAviator over the weekend? I purchased FSDT Dallas but haven't received any emails from them containing activation serials etc. It isn't on my order history either, although it may have checked out as a guest. Still, should have received emails.... I've sent them a message on Saturday using their web form but had nothing back....
  17. A bit more info, looks like on average in most benchmarks the 2070 Super has about 10% performance increase over the 2070. But comparing processors is tricky to find the info with the AMD CPU being desktop and mobile. So I am still unsure what would be the better combination - AMD 3700X and the RTX2070 or Intel 10875H and the RTX2070 Super
  18. Thanks for pointing this out Pete, just purchased
  19. Hi All I am possibly looking into upgrading my gaming laptop, I’m currently using a Asus ROG GL502VSK (7700HQ, 1070, 16GB Ram), and the primary use will be P3DV5 with an eye on the upcoming MSFSThe decision I have is that I am quite keen on the 2070 Super but due to OEM restrictions that essentially ties me to Intel and the 10875H which I know is a great processor. However I can get a configuration that has the desktop AMD 3700X or the 3900 processor but is only available with the standard 2070 So I just wanted to hear people’s thoughts on whether they would go for the stronger CPU or stronger GPU?
  20. Makerwys was updated for V5. Just needs downloading then putting in the P3D root folder
  21. It hasn’t for me? Using scan line/2
  22. I’m also on a 4 core 8 thread 7700 with HT on and I found AM 85 doesn’t work well in V5 having used it throughout my V4 usage. Im current running on 253 as it seems to have a slight edge for me over 245 but that’s just for my system and as I say, it is slight, both work pretty well
  23. With the QW787, isn’t real glass and true light still in beta? I know they are heavy on VRAM consumption. You may want to try disable them. Also, on a side note, 64GB of system ram 😱😱😱 You could run a VM farm on that! 😉
  24. P3D vram counter doesn’t show the VRAM being used by the OS and other apps. Instead it lowers the available amount to account for this. MSI afterburner will show the total across all currently used programs. Ultimate the figure is the same, just different ways of showing it if that makes sense
