  1. hatswitch

    Hi everyone, I have a Saitek-x52(I know!) and I need to map a hat switch om my flight-stick to p3d.............any ideas anyone?
  2. iFly GPS App and P3D

    I have the iFly GPS App on my mobile device for use in the real world, and I was wondering if anyone has any experience or knows how to connect this app to Prepar3D like you could with the Garmin Pilot app. Thanks, Caleb
  3. Ill cut straight to the chase, I know my system can run it just fine, but will it be able to get to a good FPS? Here are my specs (Its a laptop I know, I'm building my own pc in Christmas however.) ROG G752VT Intel I7 6700 2.6GHz 4 core CPU 16 Gigs RAM GTX 970M
  4. ARIAC Error AIRAC Cycle 1804 is current, yes?
  5. I'm really enjoying this fantastic aircraft: Jose
  6. Can't start engines

    Sigh...this is getting really frustrating for me. I've followed the tutorials to the letter, and none of the engines will catch. I've tried various other methods provided here by fellow simmers, and none of them works! ARGH! I've tried it on multiple liveries, repaired the engines, BUT NOTHING FREAKING WORKS!! I've been sustaining my flights on the panel states and auto-starts provided by PMDG, but it doesn't feel realistic at all. Help? Do I need to reinstall the DC-6? Or is something corrupted?
  7. So this is a preemptive question for folks using the DC-6 in P3D v4.2, have anyone experienced a massive frame rate drop in P3D compared to FSX? I used to have the DC-6 on FSX, and my frames would just tank to 5 or less fps, while with the other PMDG products it stayed at 20 to 30 fps. So before I sink in $70 for the P3D version, does anyone have any pressing issues with the DC-6 that would be a deal-breaker? My specs: Intel i7800, GTX 1070, 16GB of DDR4 RAM at 2666MHz, P3D v4.2.
  8. Hi I just made a flight from CYYZ to KDCA in FSL A320x. The plan was to land using STAR NUMMY2 and RWY 01. I am using Navigraph cycle 1803. I was touched and moved to see the last few waypoints of the STAR. They are: WeWil NEVVR FORGT SEP11 ALWAYZ. Try it. Bill
  9. I was flying out of EGLL today (22 March), and saw fireworks as I'm climbing out of 09L. What special day was today? No idea what building though...
  10. I've only recently bought P3D v4 and along with it PMDG's 747, and I've been having a blast except for one problem; I've noticed that the lighting in my VC is vastly inferior to what I can see in YouTube videos or screenshots (this is most noticeable in the light just above the PFD). I've done everything within my power to solve this, from playing around with the in game settings and then the NVidia control panel and inspector but to no avail. Any help or even an explanation would be greatly appreciated (I have not yet attached any images as I am yet to figure out how to inset images taken on my computer, but I do have them available, so any help in uploading them would also be appreciated; unless you wish for me to directly send them to you)
  11. It's a strange coincidence, during my world tour I arrived in Holy Russia yesterday, election day. A rather short flight: less than 580 nm, I already did 2x more in one flight. Not being restricted by the fuel, I just tried to beat speed records. At the departure (PASY), bad weather, 3°C, but already 20 knots of tailwind Above the clouds at FL120 climbing to FL200. Love the way ASP4 renders a plain, soft cloud blanket Somewhere above the Bering Sea, I officially fly over Russian territorial waters Ground speed of 335-340 kts, helped by quite strong tailwinds The view is impressive while approcahing the TOD. I will circle around the Koriakski and Avatchinski volcanoes by the left, to align on the assigned runway 36R (ILS approach) Intercepting the ILS over Mokhovaya Bay. An IL-76 Aeroflot is holding while I am in short final Military traffic in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski. A huge Mi-26 on the right, and Mi-8s aligned on the left Reaching the taxiway seems never ending: RWY 36R is 3400m long which takes 5 mn to run at 20 kts. An Il-76 from Irkutsk is forced to a go-around, I can almost hear the Russian insults... Finally... Heading left, for a rather specific taxi which crosses a forest to join the terminals The only signs of Western liveries are freight: Fedex, UPS period. Appart from that, Il76, An74, Aeroflot, Gazprom, Zitotrans... No doubt, we are now in Russia ! Now I'm planning the next flight to the West.

  14. What an awesome airport! Jose
  15. Would it be possible for any of the beta testers to tell us how performance compares to PMDG NG/777 A simple load at the same airport under the same setting will quickly show is FPS are better-same-lower It would be very helpful if someone could report. The amount of FPS is no so interesting as the comparison of better-same-lower. Since most flight simmers have the NG it would be nice to know what we can expect. If it is lower the percentage would be helpful. Also are the FPS consistent like the PMDG's or fluctuate like the FSL A320. Thank you.
  16. Anyone tried it yet? I just checked PCAviator and it looks like it's now available for p3d v4. Unfortunately, it's not available to download from my original order. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hope that I get a response from pcaviator usa ASAP. I like this addon so much that if i don't hear from them today, I might buy it again. Also noticed that one of m favorite airports LHS - BUDAPEST was also updated to v4. That one was available in my simmarket account.
  17. I just saw that I have duplicate signs as shown on this thread: If anyone has a fix, can you please share it with me? Thanks. Jose
  18. I have a simple question in need of a simple answer: Is there no compatible plug-in which will display P3d V4 on an iPad using Foreflight? I have spent four days trying to get a friend's computer, with a newly installed P3d V4 and the plug-in from Flight1 Tech, to display on his new iPad with Foreflight installed. After all this time, I checked my own newly installed P3d V4 and it will not display on my iPad. My P3d V2 works fine. FSX works fine. Is this an incompatibility? Is this an oversight by the plug-in's producer? Did LM decide to not allow this previously successful plug-in to work? Is a fix in the works? What's the deal? I don't have, nor have I needed in the past, FSUIPC..ADRWTYXYZ or whatever it is, and am not interested, at this point, in getting it. Let me be perfectly honest here; I'm frustrated and not interested in a bunch of registry tweaks, try this or try that, or suggestions that I make a rag doll mock up of my computer and stick pins in it to make all this happen. I just need to know what to tell my friend who just spent $63+ for P3d V4 so he can learn to use Foreflight without having to burn gas in his airplane.....all on my recommendation. Thanks, and I apologize for my terseness and impatience. I really am a nice guy if you get to know me.
  19. Hello fellow pilots, Today I've stepping toward a new milestone and produced my first flight sim video, and in order to get it out there, I've upgraded my YouTube channel. So Just wanted to see what you guys think, what should I add/avoid and so on... :)
  20. Imgur is refusing to embed... Leaving at -22° C with the sun beginning to set. Arriving Denver.
  21. This is a flight I did in the superb recently released freeware U206G (it's a 206 with a turboprop - find it at SoH or just google it). It's got dual GTN setup (and I've got RXP in mine). It should have been a simple VFR flight. But I saw a cold front approaching during the briefing and decided to go anyway. I decided to climb above the weather but that turned out to be a bad decision because I became stuck on top of solid overcast as I approached F62. I did something I rarely do in the sim, I did the 180 course reversal back to some sucker holes. Then I dropped in and used the GTN to find a path between the terrain and clouds to the airport. Rain also started up after I got underneath adding to the fun. Thankfully with this aircraft I have the power to get out of a bad situation hehe. I did try to maintain VFR and all USA regulations during this flight (think I was able to) Anyway if you like GA this is an excellent choice - there's amphib, skydive, and tundra and regular options!

  22. As per Pete Dowson FSUIPC Updated Modules page, "IMPORTANT: 5.123 and later versions are only suitable for use with P3D version 4.1 and later! They will not work correctly with version 4.0. Version 5.123 will work fine with the next P3D4 update." Is P3D V 4.2 release imminent?
  23. PANC

    Latest version performs even better with FTX SA enabled than original release: Jose
  24. Hi guys, please help i know there is a simple answer to this well i hope so, I just came back to P3D after sometime away and i reinstalled both the 737 and 777 with new P3D V4 downloads. But both cockpits are filled with washed out textures. I have checked everything i can think off but no luck. I have a screen shot but im not sure how to post it here.
  25. AS with cloud draw distance set to 200 miles with very little hit on FPS SF with "Enhanced Overcast Clouds Bases turned ON. FL340
