  1. Virpil just announced it's Panel #3! Finally a nod to those who don't fly military jets exclusively! Looking forward to this one. Will make my Virpil setup complete!
  2. Aircraft Airfile Manager (AAM) has been reborn for MSFS 2020 thanks to Karl-Heinz Klotz. Karl simplified editing the .air files for fs9, fsx, and P3D. You can now easily edit your flight_model.cfg and engines.cfg on the fly. Once again you can view your tables graphicly and adjust your values by simply dragging points on a graph. Available on flightsim.to as freeware! Thank you Karl! AAM for MSFS » Microsoft Flight Simulator Enjoy, Don
  3. Well AAM is alive and well with MSFS 2020! Karl has done his magic and it is available as freeware on flightsim.to! AAM for MSFS » Microsoft Flight Simulator
  4. Well if I ever need a surgeon for my “mid century modern” self, I’ll be sure they were educated before YouTube’s creation!
  5. I was a part of the Alpha from day one and yep, it was non-intuitive enough I found it frustrating. This program is detailed and needs explanation. I don’t think any quality third party developer releases a scenery and certainly an aircraft without documentation. Being part of the Alpha shouldn’t have been figuring out how it works but if it works as it should. A paying customer certainly shouldn’t have to spend hours figuring out through trial and error how the sim works. Nor should they have to wait until someone who enjoys that kind of thing publishes tips or creates a YouTube video or worse pay $20 for the documentation MS should have included in the first place. I may not print the documentation but I sure would reference it. MS has said this simulation should help usher new flight simmers into the hobby. Well imagine starting into flight simulation with no experience and starting up MSFS for the first time. You might be overwhelmed. Even you SeanMo. This is a major oversight!
  6. I do give QW credit for creating a very beautiful aircraft. I was hoping that behind the pretty exterior their was more functionality. I’m hoping that they will dig deeper into the workings of the 787 and produce a study level version for those that want the details. Personally I think having two levels of detail for the same aircraft is appropriate. You literally get what you pay for and know what your paying for up front. Having to modify the config file is really inappropriate. PMDG got this right with a menu in the MCDU that is even accessible from an unpowered aircraft. Oh well, perhaps someone will create a study level 787 eventually.
  7. I would gladly pay twice as much for a higher “Quality” 787. Without getting into the FMC, things that should have been easy to program are not programmed. When I push a button on the MCP it should be animated. When I operate the tuning control panel (TCP) I should at least see complete, selectable menu items, i.e. cabin >Directory. Sure, I’m not going to call a flight attendant, but the visuals should be present and accurate. Adding standby frequencies to radios only allows one page, not three, and you can only scroll through frequencies on VHF Left vs VHF, L,C, and R. HF is not available at all. At $80.00, these types of things should work.
  8. Thanks to everyone for their feedback! I need to head over to the P3D forum as well. I tend to use Avsim as my “go to.” It is some how comforting knowing I’m not alone. I’m sure it will ultimately get worked out. Cheers, Don
  9. I've updated my drivers which didn't help. I've disabled MSI Afterburner which did not help. Is no one else having this problem? I'm using P3Dv5 HF1, NVidia driver 445.87, Win10v1909 build 18363.836. Any additional input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Don
  10. I’ve never used FreeMeshX. Does the installer for version 2.0 install into p3dv5? thanks, Don
  11. "Try a clean un-install and then re-install your driver suite. I had this once...and doing what I suggest did the trick. Your driver installation could be 'dirty'.... " I'll do this as well. Thank You!
  12. Thank you. Hadn't considered Afterburner. I have the latest Nvidia driver installed. As luck would have it, when I restarted my computer after installing P3Dv5, MS started a Win10 update! I thought perhaps the Win10 might have screwed something up. I'll update Afterburner.
  13. Get this popup most of the time when I try using P3Dv5. No add-ons Default scenario. Anybody else seen this?
