  1. thanks for the advise. not sure what to expect however the 980ti's were not cutting it anymore - main reason for upgrading (will also be doubling the memory to 32gb) is I do a lot of flying (including XP11) and games in VR and you really need more than 980's for this - also use a 4k panel for non-VR (the new valve index headset also requires 970 as a minimum). Also can some one advise on how and where I can find the X Plane 11 shaders - was advised that for best result when you upgrade a GPU these need to be deleted/reinstalled?
  2. thanks for the advise. So basically forget the DDU software and also going via nvidia GeForce experience software just swap the card out and run the latest driver .exe which will install over the top - when you say do a "clean install" is this an actual option when you try and install the new drivers?
  3. Just about to upgrade my GPU from a 980ti to 2080ti: Just wondering: 1)What do I need to tweak to get the best XP11 performance from the new setup? - someone suggested I should delete my shaders - if yes whats the best way to do this? 2)Also if anyone's done this upgrade what's the best way to do it ? - have been told to either use software called DDU to firstly delete the drivers then swap over the cards then install the new drivers? or just to install the new drivers view nvidia experience program that I use to run all my driver updates? Any help appreciated.....
  4. thanks for the reply - will go through the setup and make sure I am following all the steps......the only parts I was for sure already doing were 5 and 6 - however after I was adding the AI aircraft was able to set the AI to "world traffic" rather than just "other"? (assuming this is probably the same thing or do they need to be set to "other"?)
  5. thanks for the reply...…. but not sure what exactly you mean by set up? would be useful to know how you managed to get it to working? as have read other posts (from a few months back) that suggested it wasn't really working properly although the GTN750 people were working to make it fully compatible (there was a interim fix that involved setting up AI aircraft in game (with a world traffic prefix) that seemed to then generate traffic on the GTN 750 - section 6.3 of the manual refers to the radar and makes no mention of TCAS?
  6. thanks for the reply! - so how exactly do you setup the WOT in the AI correctly?
  7. @fppilot thanks - actually found an update option on the drop down menus and have just ran it...………. also anyone know if the GTN750 displays world traffic correctly or not? (last time I checked you needed to setup "dummy" XP11 AI traffic of the world traffic type - for them to display correctly on the Garmin - anyone if this has now been fixed? if not how do I get the world traffic planes displaying correctly on the 750?
  8. Just wondering if the 750's traffic function is working with world traffic aircraft or does it need some special tweaking before it works? (remember last time I checked you needed to introduce some World Traffic AI aircraft into the sim for anything to show up?) Also what is the best way to update the 750? (assume you just delete it and then download it again to get the latest version - there is no special update function?)
  9. Just about to the get the above (am using P3Dv4) and noticed the best way to use FS2Crew seems to be with a mic............. Currently using my 737 pdmg with a 5.1 surround speaker system - just wondering what mic people would recommended and can I continue to use the speakers with some kind of mic or do I need to use it only with a headphones/mic? Also in terms of FS2Crew (never used the product before) so is it possible to use it for just different parts of the flight (for example take off and landings) or does it need to be always on and if you miss steps in the check lists (for example) does it still work or do you need to follow the steps all fairly precisely?
  10. Just installed FSFX module for my PDMG 737 and basically being told I need FSUIPC for it to function................... Note I use P3Dv4 and I have no requirement to use FSUIPC for any other purpose at the moment other than to get FSFX module to work........note also I do own a version of the older FSUIPC4 (for my P3Dv3) so: Just wondering what my options are to get the required FSUIPC so my FSFX works - can see there is a demo versions of FSUIPC5 will this work? is there an unpaid version (if yes please can you give link)? or is my only option to get a full new licence? any help appreciated.............

    For the PTA and ENVTEX experts in here

    thanks for the reply already posted there and it seems the shader (use PTA) option is no longer an option as they are not supporting integration with PTA any longer as they released there own shaders.........................also the latest software to integrate all there products is called"EnvDir"

    For the PTA and ENVTEX experts in here

    Have just purchased PTA2.6 and Envtex for P3Dv4 - everything seems to be working ok and using it with the SASS project presets - however little bit confused. In the set up guides I have read my Envtex should give an option at bottom left of the setup screen to point to my PTA folders and that also lets you select PTA shaders under all the other options - don't seem to have either of these options! in addition the banner at the top of the program says EnvDir rather than EnvTex (which is shown in the setup guide I am using) - so how can I integrate the two programs and switch off the Envtex shaders? - any help appreciated.....................? Note: just noticed right at the bottom of the set up screen there are some shader options but they are under the heading of Envshade but are all unselectable! assume because I don't own envshade?

  15. Already have Active sky (for P3Dv4) and ASCA installed onto my P3Dv4.0 and have just got both Envtex and PTA - after a number of people suggested it was a good combination.................... So just about to install PTA and Envtex and was interested to know peoples advise on best way to install then (what order)/what to back up (shaders ect..)/what settings to use so I can get them all working well together? (note I also have a few Orbx Products already installed)................any help appreciated
