Hello, I would like to know if there is a general agreement on this or not: Given: FSX three-monitors (Nvidia surround) EzDok TrackIr5 no proper home-built cockpit, just few Saitek panels requirement to fly different GA models (so cannot be hyper-tuned on one model only) Which setup would you adopt and why? VC extending on the three monitors (surround with bazels) + EzDok for positions in cockpit + TrackIr to move eye direction VC extending on the three monitors (surround with bazels) + EzDok for positions in cockpit, but no TrackIR so that views on each monitor stays the same (i.e. central monitor always showing front view, right monitor always show right view, etc) VC on central monitor only + EzDok for positions in cockpit, but no TrackIR, + right fixed view on right monitor and left view on left monitor no VC at all. Fixed front view on central monitor, fixed left on left, fixed right on right. I know that #4 is very old-school, and that #1 is the most popular, but I would like to know if anybody prefers #2 or #3 and why. I fly exclusively GA (no airliners), bot VFR and IFR, but I don't think that matters to the main question. Cheers
I have three monitors and a Nvidia graphics card that drives all of them. I enabled the Nvidia Surround video and got it configured correctly, It appears that you have to run FSX-SE in Windows Mode, and not full screen. I did that and the A/C that I am flying has a virtual cockpit. With the window panned accross all three monitors, the virtual cockpit is huge.. If I reduce the Cockpit view the VC seems to be off center. When I apply full throttle, the Cockpit view seems to pan up, I have to correct it by panning back down. I have had two "Crash to Desktops" . I neeed some help from other Nvidia multiple monitors using Surround FSX users. Are there FSX.cfg settings that will correct these issues, espeically the sizing of the Virtual Cockpit? And of course elimating CTDs? Thanks!
This is for the moderators I think, Two days ago I started a thread with the title listed above. Up till now, I have received no replies and now I cannot find it. I am wondering if it has been archived after this short time. Regards Tony
Hello to all, I am very new to P3D and have only just got the Academic version 3.3 up and running. I am not really using the programme due to the fact that I am using 6 monitors (and AMD GPUs) ((also see my Signature below for system Specifications)) which has the result of very very poor performance in P3D using sliders which are placed about three meters to the left of my computer LOL. I have absolutely no Add-ons installed. I tried the Feelthere Phenom100 but I only get a cockpit with no electrics or avionics at all. Those who follow my threads will know that I am an FS2004 man with a yen to upgrade mainly due to the lack of new aircraft, sceneries or in fact, any significant Third Party development at all. This is understandable and not a complaint. All the above is for background and I will get to my questions/discussions momentarily. I am starting this topic in preparation for a significant hardware upgrade and below is what I am trying to achieve. Please bear in mind that I very much wish to continue with the multiple monitor theme with P3D and/or the new DTG Flight sim. Also please bear in mind (and be patient with me) that this upgrade will be utilised in conjunction with P3D and/or other Sims going to 64bit, as, being a pensioner, I cannot afford to invest in any add-ons for both 32 and 64bit. So, again, this is preparation work only but with a real purpose in mind. Here we go. I am seriously looking at buying a new computer with the following specs (not cast in stone) 1. Core i7 6700K (or Intel equivalent at time of upgrade) 2. Z170 (Brand not yet decided) 3. RAM 32GB 3300 4. PSU 1200 watts 5. 2 x GTX 1080 (NOT SLI'D) 6. 2 x 512GB SSD and 1 x 2TB HDD OS. Most likely Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit I intend to network this computer with my current system, using the new one to drive the Sim and the old one to drive Add-ons and sceneries etc. and sincerely hope to get reasonable frame rates with my 6 monitors. Just for the sake of interest my monitor set up is as follows For Boeing 737 (IFLY) 1 x 40inch 1080p LED TV for Overhead (portrait) 1 x 60inch 1080p LED TV VC cockpit and forward view 2 x 32inch 1080p LED TV side views 1 x 22inch LED Monitor 1980 x 1080 For FMS/Lower CDU 1 x 24inch led Monitor 1980 x 1200 for Pedestal (portrait) I would like to point out at this stage, that I have absolutely no idea how to do this, or the best way to go about it. This whole process would be completely new to me and I am unlikely here in Indonesia, to get any competant advice/help. As I fly mainly in Australia and Indonesia at the moment I would be looking all the ORBX Aussie Scenery/airports, Global textures, GEX, PMDG aircraft I would love to add the Carenado Phenom 300 including the not included outdated and expensive Navigraph add-on (unbelievable) and the GTN750 My beloved Eaglesoft CitationX and the new yummy looking Challenger. I am not really looking at any addon ATC at the moment but I am open to suggestions for further addon software. To summarize, I would be seeking advice on, what can be achieved with the networking, particularly in regard to the multiple displays, and: a. Best system to buy, b, Ways and means to Network the two computers, c. Best way to configure the network (ie What software to put on what computer) d. Best add-ons Sceneries/airports/aircraft/utilities etc Lastly, what exactly is going to 64bit really going to achieve for us and what are the benefits? I also apologise for the brief "teaser" which was accidently submitted and which I have had to edit. I hope everyone now has the full version.. Looking forward to any input anyone has to offer. Thanks and regards to all. Tony Chilcott
