  1. I think it's fair to say that the first day(s) of this juggernaut are going to be filled with stress, frustration and even anger. But can anybody seriously say they're surprised by any of this? Highly intelligent folks many of whom have been at this for years (FS 5.1 for me) but still expect the state of the art to run like a washing machine right out of the box. I appreciate the folks here, many of whom I've leaned on for advice and wisdom over the years to increase my knowledge and enjoyment of the various platforms and countless add ons I've owned. Thank you. I'm setting my sights on replacing my aging, modest system that runs v4.5 pretty nicely but will probably melt like a $2 pistol trying to run 2020. When I'm ready, I hope to find you all still here having sorted out the release day trauma. By then I expect the skies will be much clearer and the frames faster than today. Remember...baby steps. Even the Wright brothers had to tweak their state of the art before it would fly. Cheers! Brian
  2. I'm really enjoying the 350i, warts and all. And I wanted to say that I much MUCH prefer dealing with a developer who throws a new update at me every few days than a developer who takes your coin and then forgets how to work the email thingie. While this bird doesn't have an FSL or PMDG level of "perfection", it's one helluva addon for the money. And having a team that actually listens to buyer's inputs and then updates accordingly is a real plus for me. Big kudos to team Milviz, keep up the great work! Brian
  3. Does this mean I can get P3Dv5 to run on my Pentium II? I've been saving for a new system since the Clinton administration but I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger. -Brian
  4. Your point is well taken but I'm also thinking about my own personal national debt worth of ORBX/PMDG/Carenado, etc products that may or may not need upgrading. But this is a good stopping point for me since my generic system is doing everything short of Chernobyl in order to generate acceptable performance with the appropriate finagling. It's all good...down the road is a new desktop hot rod running MS2020 at quantum speeds, yes? 🙂 -Brian
  5. It looks nice but not $200 nice. This might be a good time to start saving my pennies for a system that'll run MS2020 decently. I love P3D but my kids insist on eating every single day 🙂 -Brian
  6. Interesting, I'll take a look. No, I actually did have the force feedback sidewinder years ago but for me it was more a distraction than anything. Thanks for the response!
  7. I've been using my ever-faithful MS Sidewinder since, I believe, FS2002. Needless to say, it's been a minute. After nearly 20 years of faithful service, the old girl has earned her retirement. I'm looking for recommendations for replacing the Sidewinder. I fly P3Dv4.x using Windows 10. Not needing anything more complex than the Sidewinder in terms of gadgets; just a good basic stick with similar features. Any suggestions? Thanks! Brian
  8. Hello all, I've been using the same 27" monitor for years now having kept it around for FSX, FSX Steam and finally P3D. I'm pretty happy with the performance of my fairly modest generic online-built system but I would like to get a bigger monitor just because I want a bigger picture. Something like a 32". I'm wondering, given the specs below, if a bigger monitor will impede the performance I'm getting now. Nothing fancy, just a bigger screen. Here's my system (all generic) 60Hz 27" generic monitor, 60Hz with 1920 x 1080 resolution i7 7700@3.6GHz MSI B250M Bazooka mobo (no overclocking allowed!) GTX 1070 w/8 GB 16GB RAM Windows 10 Home 64 bit. I fly ORBX and a lot of Carenado stuff with ASN weather and AIG AI. Again, pretty modest system but I'm ok with the fps by dialing back shadows and unchecking dynamic lighting, etc... Mid 20s for the most part, can't complain. Would a bigger monitor cause a performance loss or does it matter? Thanks Brian
  9. The F35 hath magical powers...that did the trick, thanks! Brian
  10. Hi all, After having flown the Falcon 50 for months, then putting it down for a couple of months, I've had the strangest problem after upgrading to v4.5. From a cold and dark cockpit, switching on the battery instantly makes all three fire handles light up and the alarm sound. Checked throttle at idle position. Even did a full uninstall/reinstall and it's still doing it. Could this be a P3Dv4.5 thing? I have flown it without this problem in v4.5 but I'm swinging at everything here. Very strange. Thanks in advance Brian
  11. Downloaded AIFP and had everything resolved in 5 minutes. An awesome piece of freeware. Thanks again!
  12. So I'm guessing AIFP is the modern day Traffic Tools...sounds straightforward enough. Thanks gents! Brian
  13. Hello all, Is it possible to edit the stock P3Dv4.5 traffic bgl in order to remove the default commercial traffic? I'm running my own AIG commercial lineup but I also want to keep the default GA traffic. I want to keep my commercial slider at 100% for the AIG traffic and not have to look at Orbit, Pacifica, etc... I can install UT Live for GA coverage but the aircraft look very FS5-ish. So unless there's another GA setup out there, I'd like to keep the default GA. Thanks! Brian
  14. I'm using the Flight1 GTN750 but have updated it with their v4.5 fix. I have the Milviz Radar also...is that the REX product? If so, there's my sign 🙂 Thanks for responding Brian
