  1. My solution was to delete all of the bindings in the HC configurator except for the controls that impact the LEDs. It took a few minutes but I haven't had to touch them since. There is probably a way to configure this in SPAD.Nxt, however, I haven't taken the time to research it. There are also multiple youtube videos on how to configure HC devices that can help.
  2. One thing that drives me crazy is that if I already have my radios tuned to the tower I still need to select the field in the default ATC. This happens in uncontrolled vfr flight. It would be very cool if you were already tuned in to just be able to ask without having to scroll through them. Another thing that drives me crazy is that when going from ground control to tower for takeoff approval it's a different button, button 3, to request it. To me it would make more sense that the same button, button 1, be used for both the request and the acknowledgement. Is something like that in this program? The screen shots I've seen seems to show that it's more for IFR flight.. .
  3. Just wanted to give you folks an update on my warranty experience. While the initial response was a little slow everything began moving forward once Grant responded and helped out on this forum. My replacement device arrived today and it looks good. Haven't had a chance to hook it up yet and will do so over the weekend. And so I wanted to provide kudos to Grant and his customer support team. Thank you!
  4. One thing I'm curious about is a comparison of P3D to UTX at lower altitudes, I.E 5,000 MSL and lower.
  5. Grant, Thanks so much for your help! I've submitted the pictures and the RMA form.
  6. Hi Grant. I've submitted a couple of tickets on my Bravo and haven't received a response. Any idea on how long it will take to get a response. I have a couple of issues with axis 4 and a related issue with axis 5. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  7. I could be mistaken however I think those config entries no longer have any effect in 5.x
  8. This is a great incentive for me to start back up with ADE. The main thing that I would like to do is get certain airports lined up with the terrain elevation wise. I've tried to adjust the altitude and all it resulted in was the runways being corrected but all of the buildings were still at the original altitude. I wasn't able to figure out how to correct that.
  9. Part of the problem with new code is the sheer complexity of it. The more features, functions, realism, etc. the more difficult it is to see, let alone fix a bug. As the complexity increases the number of potential places something can go wrong goes up exponentially. It doesn't take very many factors to make the permutations extremely difficult to completely test everyone. So decisions need to be made on how many to test. The 80/20 rule definitely applies here and it's always a balancing act for making the decision on when to release..
  10. I assume you have EA turned on. Turning it off makes snow look better.
  11. I'm leaning to a possible memory leak or memory issue of some kind. I started a flight yesterday getting about 40 FPS when cold and dark. Then over the duration of the flight, about an hour, I watched the FPS slowly drop to the high 20s and the amount of system memory go up to 9.2 GB from about 5-6GB. VRAM stayed pretty stable around 5GB.
  12. You can run V5.0 as long as the 970 GPU has at least 4GB and the CPU can go very close to 5GHz or above. I know that because I was running it that way for a while. However, you will definitely need to compromise on the settings. Not sure about 5.3 though. GPU prices are coming down but are still stupid high. You may want to consider a used 10 or 20 series as an interim step.
  13. I've been waiting for an update to worldwide airports HD ever since v5 came out. It appears that the various updates of p3d since 5.0 have made a lot of their work throw away. The latest statement from Rex is that the product is on hold. There are also updates on other products as well. See the link below. You can install it into 5.3 + hotfix 1 by pointing the installer to the V5 directory. However, the textures are hit of miss if they work. Jetways look weird and some hangers have this multi-colored pixelated sheen that shimmers with movement. Other buildings look perfectly fine. I haven't tried it yet, but it may be possible to create a theme without the troubled textures. https://rexgamestudios.helpscoutdocs.com/article/207-rex-product-update
