  1. This might do the trick. Go to settings , Apps, Microsoft Flight Simulator App. There should be a "move' button, which lets you move the app.
  2. Best place for the radiator is at front, pulling fresh air in and then let it flow out at the top. If you place it at the top, you either pull already warmer air from inside out through the radiator, or try to push warm air down in the case. That is the reverse direction warm air normaly flows.
  3. NZXT is good, Corsair also. No need to be afraid of leaks when using all-in-one coolers like these.
  4. If you are into overclocking (which you are with a 9900k), then the Gigabyte is the best. The power provision of this board is superior to any other mobo, and you need a stable power supply to the CPU for overclocking. I have the Gigabyte (without the wifi) and am very pleased with it.
  5. I tried the 9700K last week. Did perform well. But for some reason it could not be overclocked to more than 4,7 GHz. Probably just a bad CPU from the silicon lottery. But 9700's are 9900's with defects and downgraded to 9700 That way Intel gets more chips from one wafer. Therefore the 9700 are worse in overclocking. But that's the point of buying a K-model processor. If you are not into overclocking, a plain 9700 would do, if you do want to get the most out of it, a 9900K will be the best option. I returned the 9700 and will go for a 9900K, which has more cache indeed which will always help (noticable or not :-))
  6. He says “same hdd” every time. Which part of the answers can’t you read?
  7. Checked today with the latest beta, works fine.
  8. As far as I understood from PMDG some time ago, they are not allowed by Boeing to show damage to the airplane. And they need their cooperation with Boeing to produce these wonderfull aircrafts. That is why you don’t see any smoke or fire from your engine even if the fire bell rings in the cockpit. Opening doors for maintenance would be a similar issue.
  9. Normally this is done with the manual door release handles at the doors. These are not simulated. If you use the alt gear extention, the doors will be kept closed by the hydraulic system. Perhaps switching hydr system 1 and 4 to OFF would open the doors using the alt extend.
  10. Bertie, Your RTO technique is not standard. At RTO, close all P/L’s and select all reversers to interlock. Brakes will go to Max braking (as selected!) and spoilers will deploy on reverse selection. Don’t use Manual braking! That is the whole idea of the RTO Autobrakes. Use reverse thrust until speed is 60 kts. Disarm autobrakes at save speed by manual brake input.
  11. That should be easy for any software programmer, I expect PMDG do it in a flash. Just devide the day into 29 and your calender week into 10. Can’t be that difficult.
  12. In my books it is called the Nav Transfer Selector (this time I looked in the manual :-)). But what's in a name.
  13. Although I have over 9000 hrs on the classic, you should never try remember something from memory stowed away long time... You have to switch the Nav Transfer Selector to MULTI and not LAND3 or DUAL (which will happen automatically if the Nav Mode Selector is moved to ILS or LAND). Then you can select additional autopilots in CMD. And from there on, Bertie is correct.
  14. On the classic 747 you had to select LAND3 (or Dual if you had only 2 ap’s) before selecting the other ap’s to CMD. Those were the days you could make a single ap approach but had to disengage them before landing. On the 747-400 it is always all ap’s on during approach.
  15. The CTD due to the PFD popup is something PMDG is aware of and trying hard to find the cause. In the next update this week there will be a FMS configuration selection for the PFD popup to disable it. That is no solution, but will help to inadvertently click the PFD and crash the flight. Until then you will have to be patient as PMDG is still puzzled why this happens to some customers, while most never sees the issue.
