    Airbus A-220

    A220 in PMDG quality - my dream 🙂
  2. All monitors do some kind of upscaling, otherwise one would have small window when running on a lower resolution and a black frame around it 🙂

    P3D running but CPU not running at max speed

    You can also run on constant 5.0 GHz and still have low power usage when not under load 😉 Clock speed itself says nothing. 5.0 GHz and no load will result in minimal temperatures. Also lower voltages/clock speed when idling will not make a big difference in overall power usage. I tried all this stuff. I also run overclocked on all cores, but I can switch on/off throttling back to lower speeds/voltage. I am measuring the power usage on the wall. And the difference when idling between idling @ 5 GHz and idling @800 MhZ is almost not there.

    FSLabs A320 update for P3dv 4.4 available

    Well..... no 🙂

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    Another one: I have never seen this in P3D. Great great update 🙂

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    Did my first full flight just now. 4.4 is the best update in a long time in my eyes. Much smoother than before, the optica are great. I am very pleased with this. Look at Dubai in the Distance!!! Crazy.... I love the new version 🙂

    PMDG and P3D v4.4

    Yes and yes. I restarted the sim and it works, but no idea why.

    PMDG and P3D v4.4

    I am just flying in 4.4 with the 777. Everything good - but I have no WX radar Updated AS16 to the beta and everything else to the newest version. Any ideas? 😞

    QualityWings 787

    QW787 and pfpx work for sure. I just need to get out of bed and look at the settings 🙂
  10. Just a short heradsup: This is what 30€ and some freeware look like: https://imgur.com/a/Yx9KNVc

    FSX'ers. Understand this please.

    This! Was in XP11 now for some weeks and did a flight in the PMDG 777 in P3D again because I miss the PMDG planes... Smoothness? Lol... Nope. Autogen loading all over the place.... Microstutters.... Long frames.... Like you said Jeroen, P3D has its strength not in this department 🙂

    FSX'ers. Understand this please.

    Yeah... I do also no tweaking. And what do i get? Microstutters all over the place. Yeay..........
  13. I don't want to argue now. Install P3D and install XP and you will immediately see what I mean. If you then say P3D has the more modern engine - well, then ok. But this is OT here. Edit: let's do it like this: We can close this here now, I made my start in XP and I guess the days of P3D are overfor me 😉 But everyone to his own liking. I don't mind people still fiddling around with P3D, AF masks, config tweaks, constant updates that break everything etc. etc. I am tired of this, I don't have the time for this. I work ~60 hours a week and want to enjoy flying in my spare time, not editing config files and try to figure out why something doesn't work or if the latest update works with the zillion addons.
  14. Well, the P3D engine is from the stoneage of computing I think. So yeah, I think XP is well ahead regarding the engine. I got it from keyforsteam.de. I buy all my games there, but the 30€ offer does no longer exist.
  15. It depends. From a technical standpoit XP is lightyears ahead of P3D. I own both now and as much as I like P3D and especially the PMDG/QW planes - I did not touch it in weeks but only fly the Zibo 737. Although: I hope Active Sky will be there soon for XP and I hope PMDG will consider XP soon. Also I hope for better airport sceneries. The freeware stuff is a lot of pain in the *** because of the libraries and stuff you need for most of them. Long story short: XP is very good but has a lot of room for improvements. Nevertheless will I not spend a single dollar on P3D anymore. At the moment XP cost me 30$ all in and it's almost on the same level as my P3D where i spent maybe ~1000€ at...
