  1. Yep, you can hook it up to FSX. Spad.next also recognises it.
  2. I'd like to use the buttons for mag switches and knobs to adjust the altimeter, etc. If I can use the stick as a pointing device, great. A lot of real life modern avionics set ups have stuff like this: https://www.dassaultfalcon.com/en/Technology/PilotBenefit/Pages/Flight-deck.aspx
  3. Single digit 5 FPS On P3Dv4.1 -- help

    UPDATE: The dynamic reflections and shadow parameters seem to have the greatest effect on frame rate with this setup -- not graphics window desktop size or terrain or mesh settings. http://www.pcpilot.net/2017/06/21/18774/
  4. Will find out after I order it. Found some other "generic" interactive devices but don't know if it's possible to connect them. https://www.amazon.com/stores/node/7671016011?_encoding=UTF8&field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=X-keys&ref_=w_bl_hsx_s_ce_web_7671016011
  5. Is it possible to connect the Saitek Farm Sim Side Panel to FSX or P3D? I'm looking for a general input panel with buttons and a pointing device and it reminded my of real world devices made by Honeywell and Rockwell Collins.
  6. Single digit 5 FPS On P3Dv4.1 -- help

    Hi --- took off left and right side view projections. Getting around 10-12 FPS. Not bad for this setup with AMD professional GPUs. I'm trying to get the get the right balance between the number of displays that run simultaneously and performance before networking computers together. Six to eight seems to be the limit on performance so far. The goal is eventually to get three networked machines with six displays each frame locked with S400 cards for 3D stereo projection for a total of eighteen monitors in a 30° x 270° arc. I'm developing a 3D stereo training system that uses commercial off the shelf components that's cheaper than million dollar systems that aerospace companies make. I've worked on those too and the home stuff is almost as good or better in a lot of cases. You can't do this kind of thing with a VR headset that doesn't allow physical interaction with controls, etc. I'd show you but can't seem to upload pictures here.
  7. Single digit 5 FPS On P3Dv4.1 -- help

    Hi Poppet -- Deleting the shaders folder and .cfg file worked. I'm running six forward view displays on one GPU and four left/right side on on another GPU so even with overclocking and and crossfire I don't expect super performance but just enough to make it flyable at high resolution/terrain mesh.
  8. Single digit 5 FPS On P3Dv4.1 -- help

    It's been over clocked with water cooling added. :) I do scientific visualization work and you can't do synchronized, more than three screens stereo 3D with consumer grade GPUs or double precision math either. I've written my own 3D stereo simulator using quad buffer stereo OpenGL but it's on Linux. Windows 3D is still stuck on DX9 so only FSX will let you do it on Windows.
  9. Hello...I have two high end systems that I use for flight simulation for both FSX and P3D. The FSX computer has Nvidia Quadro GPUs for simultaneous multi screen stereo 3D (I'm working on creating my own dedicated 3D stereo simulator -- long story.) It runs FSX at between 30-60 FPS with all the graphics settings at maximum. The other computer has a 4960X six core GPU over clocked to 4125 Mhz and six 3D 144hz displays connected to an AMD W9100 GPU with also a W8000 that drives other displays. After upgrading P3Dv4.1 I'm getting really low FPS in the 4-6 range when before v4.1 on this machine I was getting 20-30 at maximum graphics settings. I've played with the anti aliasing, terrain mesh, weather texture sizes, etc but it doesn't make much of a difference. I still get the same low FPS. Any Suggestions? Thanks :)
  10. Hello...I had the previous beta version 7.2 that I uninstalled and then installed 7.3. I can't get it to work -- I get the fatal error message after starting VoxATC when in FSX. The instrument panel and indexer installers are OK. Voice setup works OK. Windows voice recognition is in sleep mode. I also have the UT2 bridge installed. I'm using a Plantronics 648 headset. Any ideas on how I can fix this please? Thanks :)
  11. Version 1.1 released

    Hello -- where's the ignition switch? There's no cockpit diagram. --- Forgot to look up -- DUH :)
  12. Version 1.1 released

    Hello -- where's the ignition switch? There's no cockpit diagram.
  13. Hi...I had this problem as well. You need to check both the dll.xml file AND the exe.xml file to see if the entry for the carenavigraph.dll file is included: <Launch.Addon> <Name>Carenavigraph</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>.\Carenavigraph.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon>
  14. Confusion About Navaids Updates

    Thanks. I've been using the real life Avare tablet GPS navigation program with FSX/P3D as well. That's how I noticed how much things were off.
  15. One thing I've noticed about both FSX (and P3D also) is how outdated the airport and navigation data are -- for example Coronado Airport (K4AC) in Albuquerque is long gone and the Sunport (KABQ) no longer has Rwy 35/17, Double Eagle (KAEG) now has a control tower, radio frequencies have changed, and so on. I've used this to update nav data in FSX/P3D https://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids3.html Here's my question. Some aircraft have appear to have nav instrumentation problems (VORs out of position, radials misoriented) and some don't. Which data actually come with an aircraft (like the Carenado version of the C90GTX) and what does not? What's the best way to make everything up to date as possible or at least consistent?
