    P3D V4 Cargo Aircraft Recommendations

    I use the PMDG DC-6. It has the cargo capacity of a 737 plus you have all those engines to manage. Great fun. Lon Duncombe
  2. My understanding is that the bitcoin miners are going to snap up those new cards and drive the prices up as they did with the 10x0 series, which is why I didn't wait.
  3. I have a 8700K at stock speeds with 16 gig 3200 RAM. My previous setup was a 4790K ASUS Z97 with the 980Ti and I found that I was redlining both the GPU and CPU in terms of load and temperature. No problem with either one now. I fly PMDG level aircraft with Orbx scenery. I've never been happier. I took the FSlabs A-320 for a spin tonight, and it felt like the real deal. I could not have done that with my previous setup. Lon Duncombe
  4. I made the switch a couple of weeks ago. I have a 40" 4K monitor and noticed a big difference in smoothness and fps. Lon Duncombe
  5. I actually find that FS 2 runs much worse now that I traded my TRS-80 in for a Tandy 1000. Sublogic should never have sold out to Microsoft. MS-DOS 2.11 sucks 😞 Lon Duncombe

    Chaseplane freezing on initalization

    I sent this email to Kevin last Tuesday with no response. I would like to find an answer, if anyone could help me Hi Kevin: I recently did a reinstall of Windows and P3Dv4. I downloaded and started Chaseplane in Stable mode. When it informed me Stable mode did not support P3Dv4 I switched to experimental mode and restarted chase plane. Now it progresses to the initialization screen and freezes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Chaseplane and rebooted windows but no luck. Chaseplane remains frozen at the initialization stage. Any suggestions? Best Lon Duncombe

  8. I've been trying to get hold of them as well, over a non-functioning Chaseplane. No response. Lon Duncombe
  9. Hi Kevin: Here is the problem. Chaseplane freezes on initialization. I uninstalled and reinstalled, chaseplane said it fixed a corrupt p3 d file, then froze again on initializatrion. Any help would be appreciated. Version 4.198 beta Lon Duncombe

    Problem starting Chaseplane

    Hi Kevin: I'm getting exactly the same problem. Chaseplane freezes om initialization. I uninstalled and rteinstalled, chaseplane said it fixed a corrupt p3 d file, then froze again. Any help would be appreciated. Version 4.198 beta Lon Duncombe
  11. Yes, it's true. I had chinese takeout for supper and it really sucked:( On the other hand, Chaseplane works great for me! One of my best add-ons, with outstanding support :) Lon Duncombe
  12. Maybe they'll get around to updating their other airports for p3dv4 while they're at it. I know the patches are out there to do the conversion but a dedicated installer would be nice. Lon Duncombe

    E170/175

    On the other hand, Airbus bought a majority share in Bombardier, so perhaps FSLabs should be doing the C Series :) (in Alabama!) Lon Duncombe

    Not the C Series. The US Gov't will put a 300% tarif on it ! :) (If you don't know what I'm talking about go ask a Canadian) Lon Duncombe
