    777 Streaming Not Working

    I agree it is annoying. It appears Ben has had some personal issues if late and he has popped up in other threads recently stating he has not turned his back on airline2sim products. So its best we remain patient and I am sure he will resolve these issues.

    SimBuddy? Has anyone tried this?

    I just signed up to this and love it. The only downside is the subscription, I'd rather pay a one off fee. It feels like a mix of FSPassengers and air hauler 2 (no where near as complex as air hauler 2). I have FSPassengers, air hauler 2 and fs captain, but for me this ones a winner and gives me a purpose to fly. I had a few months rest from the hobby and discovered simbuddy a few days ago and now it's rekindled my love for flying again!
  3. I am experiencing exact same issues. Good eye candy but on overcast conditions my system can't handle it.
  4. Yes I agree. I disabled the enhanced overcast option but it didn't make a difference. For me anyway on an overcast day I can't use it unless I can find a tweak for it. Yes I have it on DTX5 and 512.
  5. Thanks for the share. I've just got rex SF and for the last few hours done some testing using ASP4 as the weather engine. What I am experiencing is a performance hit compared to using ASP4 and ASCA. This was the metar I used as a reference YSCH 031158Z 09022G59KT 050V130 6SM RA OVC009 BKN021 OVC030 05/02 A2923 RMK EDITED WEATHER. I would lose anywhere from 2-10fps using rexSF/ASP4 combo compared to constant 30fps (locked) using ASP4/ASCA combo. I mucked around with settings within rexSF with no improvement. I used HWmonitor and noticed that my GPU usage with rexSF/ASP4 combo remained pegged at 100% whilst with ASP4/ASCA combo it would hover around 50-67%. My AA settings are reasonable at 4xMSAA. I need to do further testing but I am very disappointed with this result so far.
  6. Thanks for sharing. The cumulus clouds look thicker with higher walls. I am currently downloading rex SF and plan to use it with ASP4.

    I'm experiencing same issue with q400 first officer steams
  8. I need some assistance from the dash 8 guru's. Now lets assume all radios are dialled correctly, including the course for a VOR approach. I just want confirmation when executing VOR approaches, do you need to initally be in heading select mode, then arm nav to intercept the VOR radial? What I am finding is if I leave the nav source to FMS to follow the flight plan, when nearing the VOR listed in the approach my flight plan disappears and the AP starts to make uncommanded turns, possibly following the VOR course I had selected. This is not what I want it to do as I wanted it to follow my flight plan. Thanks Branko

    weird FMS behaviour

    Disregard it appears I was flying the approach wrong by leaving it in NAV mode whilst approaching SAM VOR.
  10. Thanks Gerard, what a difference a good shader program and preset makes to the look of sim!
  11. Now I could be doing something wrong, if so I can't work out what. I've been following some airline2sim tutorials and did the VOR today a few times as I was trying to work out why the FMS would delete my flight plan when very close to SAM VOR. Flightplan is as follows: EGKK - EGHI (VOR DME rwy02) Depart RWY 8R, SID SAM3Z, fly to SAM VOR then turn left to follow outbound radial 192 for 8nm, then right turn to intercept inbound SAM 030 Radial for RWY02. Now everything goes to plan until I'm about to reach SAM VOR. It is at this point that my flight plan changes and the flight plan switches to go around waypoints. I look at NAV page and my FR becomes "RW02", TO becomes "(3000ft)" and Nx becomes "manual". My flight plan disappears. I need to reprogram the FR, TO and Nx for the flight plan to reappear. So it looks as though the FMS thinks as I'm about to approach SAM VOR that I'm doing a go around, when I'm not, I'm in the process of doing my final stages of the approach. I don't know why it does this, this surely cant be normal. Regards Branko
  12. Thanks for the reply. I think it's worth paying a little extra to get this added on. I tried the tfdi one today, was a bit sceptical at first but I got to admit they did a really good job with it. Makes flying in the rain feel like, your flying in the rain!
  13. Just updated the 717. I'm pretty impressed with true glass it looks good. Hope other add-on aircraft implement this or their own version.
  14. Firstly want to thank majestic for a fantastic add-on. I bought the dash8 over a year ago and left it in the hanger whisIt I learnt the 737ngx. I now upgraded the dash 8 to the P3Dv4.1 and took the time to start learning it and wow, amazing job you guys done. Now the 737 is the hanger! Just wondering if majestic is looking at adding windshield rain effect as it is the talk of the town at the moment. I've seen that the dash already has a fogged up window effect which is great. I apologise if this has been spoken about but I have not been able to find anything. Regards Branko

    I forgot to mention back up your .ini file when making changes
