  1. I have relocated this post to the "HARDWARE CONTROLLERS, JOYSTICKS, ...." forum. (I don't know how to delete this original post) Sorry for the confusion. I have a "Desktop Aviator model 2450B" gps unit (with the vga screen) that I'm contemplating including in a new cockpit build. I haven't installed the unit before, and have a few questions, should anyone here be familiar with these units: (1) Sim compatibility: I understand they are compatible with FSX. I would like to know if they work with FSX Steam and/or Prepar3d? (2) Reliability: Before I make up a place for it in the cockpit, I'd like to know whether these units reliably install and operate? I ask because I see the manufacturer no longer offers these units. Any advice is appreciated, Many thanks, Brian Vancouver, BC
  2. The GoFlight Interface Tool for XP11 has received an update. Version 2.0.13.0 includes various fixes and Gizmo compatibiity.
  3. Hello, I am wondering whether the following hardware configuration is suitable for use with Prepar3d, latest version? I have not used Prepar3d before, and am not especially computer savvy. My environment would include Orbx and either ga or corporate aircraft. If it is not sufficient, I would appreciate any practicable advice on which components will need to be upgraded (to what?). I'll either be using three (3), 24" 1080p monitors or a larger size UHD tv. Thanks, Brian Specs: CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K Socket LGA 1151 Unlocked (...should it be delided to ~4,7Ghz ?) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Motherboard: Asus MAXIMUS VIII GENE Video Card: 11GB Gigabyte Turbo GTX 1080 Ti Memory: 16GB 3000Mhz ADATA XPG DDR4 RAM Boot Drive: 512GB Samsung 950 PRO NVME M.2 SSD Second Drive: 1TB Samsung 850 EVO SATA SSD Third Drive: 6TB Seagate Barracuda Pro 7200RPM HDD Case: Corsair Obsidian Series 350D Windowed ATX Case Power Supply: 650W Corsair RMx Series RM650x 80 PLUS Gold Certified Full Modular PSU Networking: TP-Link TG-3468 Gigabit Ethernet Card (10/100/1000Mbps)
  4. After many many hours of good and not so good, hours of flying this version of the airbus. I think we have all been there with this version of the airbus. However, they all have the same problem, at some time during the flight the PFD and ND in "VC" show empty blocks where the ND and PFD, should be also the FCU lights up like a Christmas tree..I mean all enabled AP, A/T LOC, APP, ILS, FD, does this seem familiar to anyone!! Also if I look outside the aircraft the left side of the wing, always only the left hand side has disappeared, so much you can see the ground below, Lastly, when I arrive at destination airport all I can see is the runway, all the buildings, terminals, AI and Static aircraft advance animations have gone.!!! I have screen shots for all of these problems I am happy to post them, if it will help anyone to diagnose the problems I have. So if anyone can explain to me what is the cause, of what is otherwise a passable excuse for an Airbus and how I can fix it, you will have a very happy Airbus jockey! In case someone thinks it could be my setup, I am running: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit FS X with SP2, settings are not at maximum, frame rate averaging between 40/60 fps HDD: 1TB SATA 16Gb ddr3 RAM Asus M'board P7 CPU 3.4Ghz GTX 660TI boost with 2Gb RAM Benq XL2420T 24" monitor Pro yoke and rudders. I guess the above is quite a lot of information, but hopefully there is someone out in fltsim world who can help me....
  5. Hullo, I bought X-Plane 10 not long ago and I am really enjoying it. I also have FSX but I have not used it since I acquired X-Plane; I have not quit on it though. However, FSX is a 32-bit application and I am using the 64-bit version of X-plane 10. Now, I am not a hardware expert but I could imagine that the two applications make use of my hardware in different ways. This is my iMac: 27" iMac (medio 2011): Intel Core i5-2400 CPU (3,1GHz) 8GB DDR3 RAM AMD ATi Radeon HD 6970M (1GB DDR5 RAM) Can anyone here tell me if I would see a better performance if I up my RAM from 8GB to 16GB? Or is X-Plane more focused on GPU and VRAM. In addition, would it be worth the cost of the RAM modules; approx. $142/€134/£97 for 2 x 4GB modules. Thanks for your help in advance
  6. Hello, I recently bought new hardware for my pc,but i dont know if i am performing good or bad. Specs: CPU:Intel 4770 GPU:AMD 280X RAM:8GB 1 HDD Drive No overclocking I get aprox. 20 fps with almost full graphics,in a pmdg 737 on schiphol,aerosoft scenery. I have traffic turned off. What do you think?
  7. Good afternoon guys, i'm not sure if this belongs to this forum or the P3D forum, but i thought it was better here. I was using FSX and running it with about 30 frames on the ground at payware scenery with addons like pmdg 777, ASN, GSX, etc, so i was quite happy with my rig. Recently i bought a Samsung 850 evo SSD and with the reinstall i decided to switch to P3D. But now that i have everything installed i get about 8 frames in aerosoft's EGLL with their A320... So i would like to ask for your opinion in what is my system's bottleneck, and what would you recommend for an upgrade with a bugdet of about 200-300 euros. Thanks in advance! MOBO : ASUS P8z77 vle CPU : i7 3770K OC to 4,7Ghz GPU : Nvidia GTX 550Ti SSD: (windows and P3D there):Samsung 850 evo 250gb corsair h80 water cooler PSU: 620W RAM: 2x4gb 1600Mhz im pretty sure its the GPU, but i'd like to know if i should invest in new ram as well, and if your suggestions would be compatible with the system. Thanks a lot!
  8. Hi Everyone - I've posted this over in the LM P3D Forum as well, but I'm posting here in hopes of getting an answer to an incredibly vexing problem that just started yesterday: Starting yesterday, I cannot set the parking brake anymore on any aircraft UNLESS I disable all joysticks w/Ctrl-K. Then I can set the parking brake, BUT I still cannot set it with the Ctrl period keystroke combination. I can only set the parking brake if there is a "physical brake" to click on to set/release. With the parking brake set, if I re-enable the joysticks, it releases the parking brake and I cannot reset it. I am at my wits' end with this, as I've been working on this problem since before 5am this morning, and it's now past 2:30pm. I've gone and gotten a new Yoke & Throttle and new Rudder pedals, with the same result - cannot set the parking brake if the joysticks are enabled. I was using the Saitek Cessna Yoke/Throttle and Cessna rudder pedals before. I bought the same Cessna rudder pedals again, and the Saitek Pro Yoke System (Yoke & Throttle). Everything was working FINE until yesterday...it's NOT anymore!!!! I've played around with different sensitivity & null zone settings, with no luck. Can someone recommend any Control settings I can try to use to resolve this problem? (It also cropped up in FSX yesterday, but I was able to solve it by unplugging and replugging the rudder pedals....didn't work with P3D!!!!) Please help!!! Jim
  9. I just stumbled upon these guys thanks to a friend. Don't know if anyone knew about them or I am late to the game. http://flightsimcontrols.com/
  10. Hi everyone, After being out of flight sim for a good few years, I am considering getting back into it by purchasing a pre-built desktop system for FSX, with the view of possibly upgrading to P3D. I intend to use the system just for flight simulation as I wouldn't really play anything else and I would also want to run add ons such as additional scenery, Active Sky and exceptionally detailed aircraft such as the 737 NGX. After looking at some of the other threads, i5 seems the way to go as FSX doesn't make use of the cores with the i7? Is this the same with P3D? Also, would I want to install FSX/P3D on a separate drive from the OS? Or does that make no difference in regards to speed? I have found this system from AWD IT: http://www.awd-it.co.uk/xen-arc-r2-intel-i5-4670k-4.0ghz-quad-core-nvidia-gaming-pc.html Does anyone else have any recommendations as to where I should look at buying one from? I have taken a look at PCSpecialist, Scan, Overclockers UK, Wired2Wire, ChillBlast, UKGaming Computers, CyberPower and Palicomp. However, its all quite overwhelming as to where I should really look at getting one from. Thank you in advance for your help
  11. Greetings! I am building a new PC. I have been away from Flight Sim for 3-4 years (pre Steam and pre p3d). My new build will be for FSX Steam, but I also do Photoshop and Video editing. I anticipate using FSX Steam, PDG 737, Orbix, Rex, most all of the goodies. I am guessing my system will be overkill for Flight Sim, but would like confirmation of that. I will be overclocking the CPU. This is my third build of a system. As I only build system every 4 years or so, I am going high end. I respect the contributors on AvSim and hope for some feedback. Thanks guys! This is my current wish list: CPU: Intel i7-6700 MSI Graphics Card GTX 980 gaming 4g ASUS ROG Maximus VIII HERO Motherboard 2 - Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5 inch SSD G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 SDRAM EVGA SuperNOVA 850 Watt G2 80+ Gold Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Mid Tower Case Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX CPU Cooler Windows 10 Home 64 bit system builder OEM Don Maxwell
  12. Hello All, I am having a nagging issue with my VRInsight CDU II, which looks like other folks have had it as well. In a review post, the author noted "The only remark I have here is that the CDU II sometimes sends double inputs to the pc upon pushing a button only once. Sometimes annoying, but nothing terrible." Here's a link to a YouTube video showing it happen. At 2:13 (ish), you will see the user enter "LFMP", but it puts two L's in place. This also happens with the CLR and DEL keys, which you can understand why THAT gets a bit difficult for someone, especially a newbie at working with the PMDG 737 NGX FMS like me. http://youtu.be/aLjFdRGudXl?t=2m13s Also, here is the review I refer to earlier in the post: http://www.simflight.com/2012/08/12/vr-insight-cdu-ii/ Has anyone else seen this, or found a resolution to the issue? Best Regards, Brad
  13. Hello, im looking into upgrading my hardware, and while id like to think I know a lot about computers the choice of processors never fails to baffle me. Right now I have 2 processors in mind. - AMD FX-4350 4.20 GHz Quad-Core AM3+ CPU 4MB L3 Cache & Turbo Core Technology - Intel® Core™ i7-3820 Quad Core 3.60 GHz 10MB Intel Smart Cache LGA2011 The AMD looks better with the with the 4.2 GHz, but I know that a higher clock speed doesn't always mean better performance. The AMD is cheaper, but I don't want to sacrifice performance for it if the intel would be better. So which processor would be best for running Fsx? Other specs: 16 GB of Ram Nvidia 660 GTX 2GB video card Thank you.
  14. Hey Guys, I need some advice and help on a new computer build to run FSX: SE on maximum graphics or close to it. Please look at the parts that I plan on using to build the computer below: CPU Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK ATX LGA1150 Memory G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 SSD Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" SSD Storage Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Video Card Asus Radeon R9 270X 2GB DirectCU II Case Corsair 760T Black ATX Full Tower Power Supply SeaSonic 850W ATX12V / EPS12V Optical Drive Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) Sound Card Asus Xonar D1 Wireless Network Adapter Asus PCE-N53 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1
  15. Hi fellow simmers :smile: I am new to forums so don't really know if i am posting this in the correct place or not so please let me know. I'm wondering if any of you can help me in finding out what kind of graphics card/hardware i need in order to achieve a really good realistic flight simulator... I've been looking online recently and have seen that people have got extremely good graphics even when at mega airports I struggle at the moment to get good FPS when at LHR (EGLL) even when my setting are extremely low. I have updated my PC over the past couple of years but it still isn't great, what do you guys think i should look at purchasing next? My current specs are: Ram: 4.00GB AMD FX -4100 Quad Core Processor 3.60GHz 64 Bit Operating System NVIDIA GeForce GT640 Any ideas on what i can change so that i can get ultra realism? p.s im kinda looking for this kind of level: thanks for the help in advance !! :smile:
  16. current specs i7 4790k @4.5 gtx 970 pny ddr 3 2400mhz ssd 840 monitor resolution asus 2560x1440 main sim fsx , upgrade to 980 ti or 1070 future plan 4k resolution tv or monitor. what you think guys GTX 980TI OR 1070 thanks..
  17. I am brand new to this. I'm an aircraft technician looking for a hobby associated with the same line of work im in. So I would love to get into FS. I don't want to just go out and buy a computer to use for FSX though. I would like to build my own. Which is why I am here to get as much information I can get from you, much more experienced FSX and hardware users. Budget at this point doesnt matter. What I'm looking for is information based on brands, types of hardware, and general prices I should be going for on Motherboards, Drivers, Hard Drives, Monitors, Etc... before I go out and spend money. Any information helps! Thanks FlightSimBerto
  18. Hello everyone - i purchased the HOTAS Warthog flightstick and throttle and i have an issue i can`t find a sollution to. On the mentioned throttle there is a slider to the right of the main throttle. I want to assign that to the speedbrake of the 747-400, so its movements correspond with the movement on the speedbrake lever in the 747-400. Is there a way to make this work? in the assignment settings i was not able to do this. Best regards from Gunnar
  19. Hello everyone, My birthday is coming up and I have been saving for a three monitor setup. I currently have on my rig, an Intel i7 4770K @ 4.1, Nvidia GTX 750, 8gb ram, 2tb hard drive 7200rpm. When I first built the rig, custom for fsx, I skimped out major on the gpu to save money, as fsx does not use much of it anyway. However, now I am going to try to use Nvidia Surround for a three monitor setup. What I want to know is, how will the system react to the new hardware? Will I see a major drop in FPS in fsx? WIll other parts of the system react negatively? Also, since I am new to the entire field of three monitor surround, I plan to get the following monitor http://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-VA2037A-LED-20-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B00AV4NXFY/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1423955415&sr=8-4&keywords=monitor or http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C8T5KOW/ref=psdc_1292115011_t1_B00AV4NXFY A bit cheaper, (important as getting three means I save 30 bucks!) Which would you recommend? is the extra 30 worth it, or can I get the cheaper monitor for the same result? What I want to know is, is there anything wrong with the monitor, past problems, died quickly, uneven coloring, etc. Refresh rate and response time's effect specifically in FSX. Will the setup have problems like lagging, screen tearing (whatever that is), etc. Sorry if I am coming off as a noob, being my first experience with three displays and all. (I currently use two CRT monitors my school used 20 year ago!) Thanks in advance, 1251452

    throttle quadrant

    Installed radio stack from satiek and also added second throttle quadrant, radio syncd with system and working with pr3d 2.1 My problem inspite of multiple attempts in configuring the controls quadrant still insists it wants to control elevator and ailerion which obviously causes problems with the yoke. Also I'm not seeing the option of controlling other than a single engine prop, throttle, and mixture I bet this is simple but I still appreciate the help Rich
  21. Hello dear avsimmers I built my pc 5 years ago. The specs are Core i3 2120 1155p , 2x4GB DDR3 1333mhz Ram , Radeon HD6670 2gigs 128bit graphics , Gigabyte H61 MA-D3V mobo. I'm bored of compromising performance for graphics and vice versa and want to make some significant changes to run the P3D or FSX-SE smoothly with decent graphics. Here, I'm able to find used i7 2600k or 3770k in good condition as the mobo is 1155p and thinking about putting a GTX 1060 inside. But I'm pretty much concerned about the mobo as it's old and not sure if it could run these hardware consistently. and i know that it's like impossible to make a stable cpu overlock on a H61 chipset motherboard. So , should i go for it without worries or keep saving money to build an entire new setup which will take a long time tbh. And i need precise answers about the performance of AMD products for flight simulators especially P3D. Thanks in advance
  22. Hello, I am interested in building a computer for flight simulators. I'm using p3d and aerofly 2. I'm having issues with my current build: i7 6700k Skylake Gigabyte Gaming 7 Board EVGA 980ti Classified Graphics Card (3) Asus PB 287q 4k Monitors I am getting slow framerates, and also strange lighting errors in Aerofly. I'm thinking I should upgrade to a 1080, or a couple. Would (2) of these rigged SLI provide enough horsepower, or should I get 3? Also would I benefit from a processor with more cores? Maybe Xeon?

  24. I need to upgrade my SSD drive as my add-ons are quickly out growing the 120 GB I'm looking to go with 500 GB drive (or close to) but have a question about transferring data; I plan to transfer the contents of my existing SSD to a folder on my Desktop HD. Then I will install the new, larger SSD ensuring the replacement takes on the same drive name as the previous. Then I will transfer the folder back to the new drive. Will this work? I'm thinking FSX won't have any problems recognizing the data on the new drive as long as the drive name stays the same? Or, is there something or some step I'm missing that will complicate the change? Any advice would be appreciated.
