  1. Thanks for the update!

    Again, I said "appears". Your setting don't "appear" to be very high, and most of us run Orbx scenery which you have omitted from your list and are readily apparently missing. Your traffic at KJFK is zero, and at EGLL it is minimal. Both unrealistic. But I understand you were on vatsim. I refer to a previous comment about AA settings? Also, I could not tell you were running any aftermarket weather add-ons. Everything looks very vanilla. Vpilot, GSX, PFPX, have nothing to do with the current conversation. I also assume that you are running a single monitor? What refresh rate? Your video (framerate) at several key points was choppy and not smooth. What are your hardware specs? Let's keep in mind that everyone has a different setup and different settings. I'm sorry if your feelings are hurt Kevin, but if you post a video you should open yourself to constructive criticism. I started out by watching this video so see the dynamic lights issue (or no issue in your case as you say), and I watched it much further. I'm sure that was the purpose of you creating this video - for people to watch?. I have often seen you offer somewhat "professional" opinions and advise on this forum, and I am troubled to see you closed to receiving a little bit of courteous advice yourself. I offered very polite and sincere comments to your video. I could have purposely tried to embarrass you on this forum, but that is not the type of person I am. I repeat, that there are numerous real world youtube videos available that have not only helped me, but could also help you too. In addition, there are a handful (maybe 5-6) real world pilots on the PMDG forums that offer fantastic advice (especially in the 747 forum). There are a number of frauds on these forums and I caution all readers to be wary. It is quite easy to spot the real deal pilots. These are the guys that should perk your ears when they offer advice. I personally ran a 4790K overclocked and found that DL was a heavy hit on performance. I upgraded to an 8700K and I still see a slight hit, but it is very manageable now. You are in the minority to say that DL offers no performance hit to you (no issues as you've said). I have always been concerned that those that say that DL has no effect on them are almost always the most "loyal" PMDG forum posters. Even though it is a P3D issue... And you need to sign your posts like all of us have to do, or your posts should be deleted (as stated by PMDG staff). And yes, I've heard your arguments before and you are clearly trying to circumvent the spirit of the forum policy.

    Trim question for PMDG 737NGX

    Any day that I'm upside down is a bad one in my book. lol
  4. -8 beta release day! Lets hope we see the officially release by the end of summer. Really looking forward to this one...almost as much as the NG3. Thanks to PMDG for being the co-dependent in our sim addiction.

    Keep in mind you're running a VERY vanilla setup, with what appears to be little to no add-ons (eye candy). May I respectfully suggest that you check out some 747 cockpit youtube videos. These might help you fine-tune your airmanship and procedures. Captain Boeing has some great content. Thanks for posting!

    Sim small stop&go after 2hrs

    The man likes to live on the edge...
  7. This is totally out of line, and getting out of hand. Some people should be absolutely ashamed of themselves for the way they are acting. I said before, based on the information available at the time, that I didn't think this is for me. After reading more of what Kyle is saying I am becoming quite intrigued. I'm looking forward to hearing more.

    Hey PMDG. Here's an idea

    I think he wants to lease/rent your product, rather than purchase. Like a U-Haul....
  9. That already exists, for your aircraft and for the sim itself. For about the price of a cup of coffee you can have all the AIRAC data you want. But, I'm with the crowd that respectfully says not for me. I fly to some pretty off the wall places - that's part of the fun for me. I do my own thing on my own time. I enjoy thinking about and planning my next flight during my non-sim time. I like to research and learn about the places I am flying to in the sim. The total freedom of this hobby is what appeals to me. This new product feels like having a second job. But I am sure there will be lots of people out there that will be all over this, paying their money and funding the development of our next great PMDG aircraft.

    Freeze Issue

    I recreated the same flight in the 777 and had no issue with selecting CAMPS3 arrival. I’ll investigate further.

    Freeze Issue

    Thanks Dan for looking. I’ll try to post step by step this weekend. Meanwhile; I’m using P3Dv4 Route was PHLI-PHOG ending in waypoint CAMPS. I could never get to the transition page, as it locked up when I tried selecting CAMPS3. When it first happened the other day it wreaked havoc with P3D. It ended up with CTD before the splash screen.
