  1. Perhaps will I suggest all users to optimize the sim as suggested by GeForce Experience. First time, after installing the new Nvidia driver, I changed nothing to my graphic settings, except DLSS (DX11). I noticed no significative change in FPS. Then, I optimized these settings (staying in DX11) according to GeForce experience optimized settings : the FPS raised significantly (around 10 more) and I gained some more FPS by switiching to DX12. But I have to do more flights, in different weather configuration on heavy airports (flying my beloved PMDG 738 !).
  2. Hello, Just a dumb question : why isn't there, for MSFS, something equivalent to the log.txt in x-plane ? Many users are reporting errors relying on the Windows' events observer. In case of CTD, whatever the cause I presume (the servers e.g.), it comes from one or several files that are not correctly loaded. At this stage, as it seems, nobody can identify what type of files exactly. In x-plane, you may able to identify if the problem comes from a scenery, a plugin, an aircraft, and so on. Devs are using the log.txt to narrow the spectrum of possible issues. Here, from several days one, we are always at the stage of speculations.
  3. Hello, Some people are often asking how to bind the push to talk key, set in Altitude, to their joystick. You cannot still assign a button directly in Altitude settings for MSFS, but only a key on your keyboard. I am a new user of Spad.neXt and, despite the excellent videos of Les O'Reilly (many thanks to him), and because I did not want to use vJoy interface as showned in these videos, I spent some hours to find a extremely simple solution to map correctly my Honeycomb Alpha Yoke (but it will work with any devices). I thought then it would be useful for other people, so I post it here (as on IVAO's forum). Follow these steps : - In Spad.neXt UI, select the joystick button you want to map. Make sure that this is a "normal pushbutton" (in device settings, by default on alpha version). - Select "add event" - Then, "add action"/"keyboard" (no need to add a condition here). - Select "press key" (and no "press and release" this is counter intuitive...) - Click "assign", enter the key you want to : I choose the RCTRL key, because I am sure there is no interference with other keyboard bindings in MSFS (this key is always used in combination with another one). Then, click "assign" again. - Don't change the other parameters (like "active window"). -Press OK Repeat the same procedure for this joystick button : - "Add event" - "Add action"/"Keyboard" - This time, select "release key" - Assign the same key of your keyboard (RCTRL for example) - Press OK. - Finally, don't forget to save your new config. - Launch MSFS so that you may establish the connection with Altitude. - Load Altitude and, in the Settings menu, assign and apply the PTT key of your keyboard (RCTRL in my case). You're done ! Good flights on IVAO, Daniel.
  4. I take the risk to ask 2 "naive" questions (without any intention to complain as I've not purchased this addon yet) : - Is it really immersive to see passengers boarding, or people loading the luggage ? Despite the efforts of MSFS to make human people as realistic as possible, the animation looks yet like a cartoon. For me, the sounds in the flightdeck (like PA announcements) are doing much more for immersion. Then, you really have the feeling to sit in a real airplane. - When you are mostly flying online (but I know only 5-10% flightsimmers do), having to wait a long time for getting the pushback isnt' quite annoying ? Mainly when you are flying in the evening and have to work early on the next morning ! Most ATC positions are closing about 22-23 h (local time). I much appreciate the videos of Emmanuel (737NG Driver). I think that, as for othetr users, multiple CTDs, not the unavoidable bugs of the program, explain his reaction.
  5. Common issue. I had to return my Bravo to Aerosoft for the same problem of failure contact on reverse buttons. I also had to repair by myself my Alpha Yoke because loose of the central control rod. I wrote to Honeycomb to express my disappointment concerning the qualiity of their products. Someone answered me very quickly that Honeycomb is well aware of the issues reported by customers, that concern the first production units and that these issues have been fixed now.
  6. Thank you very much for your advices. I've watched some excellent videos of Les O'Reilly and I will be a big help for matching this addon.
  7. Hello, I'm intended to buy the PMDG 737. What is for you the best add-on for biding keys to the Honeycomb Bravo Quadrant ? Is it possible to have the lights illuminated on the Bravo with Axis and Oh ? Thanks for your sharing your experience, Daniel.
  8. Folks, don't forget that aviation is a history of a passion. I posted myself some negative views about MSFS on its website (mostly about live weather issues). But I think it's not without consequences that simflight conceptors share this passion too. See Austin Meyer, founder of x-plane. No need to discuss further : this post was only for information. Just buy Info-Pilote if you can read it in french ! (I wanted to share this article with you, but we cannot insert files in Aviasim...).
  9. Hello, In the last edition of "Info Pilote", the magazine of the French Federation of Aviation (FFA), we may read that the founder and chief manager of Asobo, Sebastian Wloch, is now learning to get his PPL (Private Pilot Licence) in a "aeroclub" (main aviation schools in France are "aeroclubs") of the Bordeaux region (LFCS). So, I guess we may expect much improvements in the sim, to make it closest as possible from reality... 😉
  10. As many users, it was not possible for me to click on "buy" (all was greyed). If you have that issue, you have to submit a request to Zemdesk (MSFS forum). They have a manual fix to restore your access to the marketplace's downloads.
  11. As many users, I could not download the Japan scenery on the marketplace (as other stuff). This is an account issue. You have to submit a request to Zendesk (see MSFS forum). I received an email just one hour after doing that, and my access to the marketplace is now fully restored. A reactivity quite comforting for me.
  12. This announce from PMDG is for me another factor of desillusion. It means that we will have to wait about one year for having some "study level" aircrafts to fly with (airliners but also other nice GA planes). According to PMDG itself, MSFS is not ready at this stage to implement high quality add-ons. May be Aerosoft will prove the contrary... For now on, I think seriously to put MSFS in the fridge till next summer !
  13. Agree with you at 99% "Taschmann". But we need an update ASAP to fix the bugs of the previous one !
  14. Hello, Just a dumb question : for simply injecting metars in the sim, why just a plugin, like NOAA plugin in X-Plane, would not be sufficient ?
