  1. After a lot of time and effort we are so excited to announce Bmibaby Virtual is now open to pilot application's ! We cannot wait to welcome you to our family don't miss this opportunity baby! โค Regards Bmibaby Staff Team. Please click to apply: Bmibaby Virtual
  2. OOO sounds amazing, convincing your wife must have been a feat !
  3. HI Sasha, again sorry for the terrible time its taken me to reply, I need to get tapa talk set up on my mobile XD Screen shots are from google so most likely the fsx version. In all honestly if you want to be amazed by a 733 the IXEG for XP11 is incredible ! Kind Regards Harry
  4. Okay guys so i figured this out, When i updated Tomato-Shade it un-checked everything so the preset wasn't applying correctly. Open tomato-shade click file -> Open -> (open your preset, i used the default) . Then click Actions -> apply. Open reflection maker restore the aircraft in question then re-apply your preset! Job done ๐Ÿ˜„ Kind Regards Harry
  5. Good Evening Sascha, sorry for the really late reply as I didn't see this ! I found very few liveries, I have even been using the way back machine to preview their old website but by the looks of things they locked livery downloads to members of the forum only. But heres the ones i did find - Fs-Repaints: http://www.fs-repaints.co.uk/ offer few repaints for the Enigma however sadly they are not free ๐Ÿ˜ž Southwest Enigma livery: http://www.mediafire.com/file/603j1k03949w2em/SWA733FS9.zip i managed to find this on media fire (Not scanned with anti virus) Us Airways Livery: https://www.surclaro.com/fsdownload-detail-20425.html China Eastern: https://www.surclaro.com/fsdownload-detail-19083.html In all honesty thats all i could find ๐Ÿ˜ž however if you are looking for a good 733 for FS9 i would recommend these two as they both have lots of liveries too: Simviation HJG 737-300/400 & 500 http://simviation.com//hjg/downloads.htm (Free with LOADS of liveries) Previews: Wilco pub 737-3 (Payware) https://www.wilcopub.com/737-pilot-in-command-fs2004-fsx-xp-5764.html (ยฃ21.00) Previews: I hope this helps :) Kind Regards Harry
  6. Hi i know its been a while but here you go, i used to love flying this thing back in the day of FS9 it was the best thing ever back then !! https://www.surclaro.com/fsdownload-detail-20425.html
  7. Good Evening Cruachan, thank you for your reply! It's funny you should mention the FFTF utility i was just reading you post about it the other day i will give it a try and let you know how it goes :) Kind Regards Harry
  8. Hi Mike, Thank you for your reply, you are absolutely right locking my frames is definitely the best way to go and 120 Hz made a very small difference however i'm still having large FPS drops in highly populated area's. My old rig with a 6700K & 1060 was running P3D a mile better into lets say Amsterdam / New York however this new machine not to much ๐Ÿ˜ž Kind Regards Harry
  9. Good Evening Lodestar, thank you for your reply, I tried this and reduced my RR to 59Hz as this is the minimum my monitor will run, I found V4 ran a bit smoother however i did a quick flight into Amsterdam and on approach, I had dips down to 7FPS ๐Ÿ˜ž however around Aberdeen i was locked nicely at 30, it seems to be as soon as i go near anywhere thats densely populated my frames pack up and go on holiday. I have checked my CPU useage and everything is normal it does rev up to the high 70's % during the approach but certainly better than Windows 10. Just for reference i'm using a display port Kind Regards Harry
  10. Good Afternoon Mike, Thank you for your reply. I have carried out the CFG edits and i can see with unlimited frames I am getting around 80 - 123 FPS with a variation of around 10 - 16%. Flying around in the default scenario, however at locked at 30 FPS im getting 29.8 - 30 FPS with a variation of 0.3 - 2.0%. Kind Regards Harry Afternoon Lodestar, thank you for your reply! Just a quick update after my absence from the topic I have now reformatted to Windows 7 Ultimate and the difference in background processes is much better and P3D seems to peek at 90% at times much better compared to the 100% CPU usage of windows 10, literally all the time. As you mentioned limiting the frame's reduced the CPU load drastically ! :) However today i decided to fly the FSL Airbus from Aberdeen to London, this time when i installed V4 i only installed FTX Global Mesh 2018, ORBX Global Base, Open LC Europe & Rex Skyforce testing my sim 1 by one. There did not seem to be an issue. However after taking off from Aberdeen things became obvious very quickly that frames were dropping badly down to around 11 fps and i just decided I'd had enough and abandoned the flight ๐Ÿ˜ž. I then rebooted the FSUIPC auto save from departure and did a quick test with the RR i managed to go into display setting and lower my RR to 30 Hz, this made the stuttering worse. I then tried 144 Hz and things were better however the drop in frames is definitely still there i know the FSL was probably not the best a/c to test things but ill definitely do some more testing ans see what happens. The weird thing is once id reformatted i installed P3D V3 so i can fly Concorde and I've done multiple flights at reasonably high settings without any frame drops! My frames are locked at 30 and its just silky. Something with V4 is incorrectly configured or not correct or more than likely I've doing something wrong but considering the reformat P3D V4 should be performing at reasonable settings i just hope we can get to the bottom of it ! Thank you again for your continued support. Kind Regards Harry
  11. Hi n99wb, I have indeed bit defender has the root folder all & P3D folders excluded including \Program Data\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D V4 \User\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D V4 & \User\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D V4 Regards Harry
  12. Hi exeodus, thank for your reply, something is definitely not right as soon as a load up P3D the CPU is running at 100% with no decrease as i mentioned X-Plane (high settings) is running at 23% and its the same story with all of my other games. I am aware that P3D is not as well optimised and would expect a higher CPU usage but I would not expect it to hammer the CPU at 100% constantly with no drops in % at all. My previous rig never did this even with high settings even in a densely populated area id see the low 90's at maximum. I can hear the water cooling going crazy and I do not want to damage my CPU by running at 100% every time I'm flying. I definitely saw a performance increase on W7 on my old rig however I am going to format today and see how it goes. Kind Regards Harry
  13. Good Afternoon All ! I finally have P3D V4 running on my new M.2 with just my ORBX products, Global Base, Open Lc Europe, FTX Sxotland & FTX ENG dissabled. I have "Vsync" dissabled & my frames limited to 40 Fps I can now happily fly around central London with 30 - 40 FPS, I do still see the odd drop to around 28-26 fps but on the whole its better. (RR 60Hz- Minimum) However now my major problem is CPU usage, by looking in task manager i'm seeing 90 - 100 % usage and believe me I can hear it my cpu cooling working very hard but the temps are within range. I have looked on various other threads and it seems to me it could be an over-clock issue. So I am going to dial back from 4.6 GHz and see if I can get the CPU usage into I nice range. I'm currently doing a test in X-Plane, i'm flying over the centre of London with around 23% CPU usage and 48% GPU,Ii am aware XP is way better optimised but it should give me an idea of during gaming / sim-ming where my cpu is at and I can rule out any issues with hardware. I may also be able to get somewhere with calculating a proper affinity mask instead of just using the auto calculator ? Finally I am seriously considering moving back to Windows 7 ! I have had nothing but problems with Windows 10 and despite going through all the optimisation guides i'm still running 148 background processes. I had much better performance with windows 7 on my old rig ! However the only problem that is holding me back from going back to W7 is I use an Elgato Game Capture 4K60 Pro to stream with and it reads in their specification: "Please Note: Elgato Game Capture HD60 S and Elgato Game Capture 4K60 Pro only work with Windows 10" However this is only mentioned about the software not the PC which is running the capture card. Is it worth downgrading ? Kind Regards Harry
  14. Hi all thank you for all your messages and advice, I have now dropped my RR to 60 Hz that is the lowest it will go. I have un-installed everything P3D V4, all i am waiting on now is my M.2 to arrive tomorrow and i will install everything one by one. I also need to get my windows processes on a leash! currently I am running 165 background processes & I only have opera open๐Ÿ˜ฎ On Lodestars recommendation I will visit the link he sent previously. As i say my M.2 will be delivered tomorrow so i will keep you all updated, thanks again for all your replies ! Harry
