    Confession Time

    Hi All. Boy do i feel a bit stupid, some might question only a bit? Awhile back i posted about my 717 and flashing screens and although i tried everything one thing i didn't do was upgrade to P3DV4.3 i was running on 4.0 as there was a few issues with later updates. I have now upgraded to 4.3 and i have to confess itsworking like a dream! I know its something i should have done first but as i say there was issues with P3D4 which scared me a bit as i had heard about all sorts of issues with Aircraft, Paint jobs and such so i thought i'd wait until it was sorted. It threw me a bit with the latest update from TFDi and it was after that that it all started going Pear shape i never gave it a thought that P3D could be the issue. So with this said i would like to say sorry if i have caused a few heads to be scratched! My Aircraft is, at this moment in time running just fine. Any ways i'm off to the shops to buy a big spade so that i can prepare for the next big hole i dig myself into!! Many Thanks for your time. Best regards Pete.
  2. Come on you guys. This is becoming ridiculous now. What do i have to do to get some action from you lot?

    Whats happening?

    Hi Josh. Thanks for the reply. My PC Specs are Intel i7 @ 3.30GHz. 16GB RAM. 64bit Op Sys. 1 nVidia 980 GTX 4GB. PC is 4 yrs old and built by me, and i'm not in bad nick either just a lot older! I use P3Dv4. I have not upgraded yet to 4.3 but my 717 has been running fine. Wasn't until this latest update that things went south. Tried previous version as well as reinstalling the Aircraft. But nothing has worked so far. Sorry for the late reply was wrapped up with some other stuff here at home. Forgot to say its Windows7. Kind Regards. Pete

    Whats happening?

    Hi Guys I only have one Graphics Card. But i share the same problem with the displays flickering and going banana's in the VC. I don't see much movement on this judging by the posts in the Forums. I have tried reinstalling the Aircraft but no matter what it will not work! I have disabled TrueGlass and it does not work. It worked just fine before this recent update but since then nothing is right with it. Tried rolling back but again nothing. After having purchased an expensive piece of kit like this its extremely disheartening and very disappointing to see no response about this other than the somewhat tired, well used excuse of someone's looking into it and never hearing another thing! I wonder if instead of you guys receiving the money for the purchase upfront and instead receiving payment after we have had the product for awhile, lets say until the first screw up, would you still have such an complacent attitude? Or lets say you bought a Car from me and it stopped doing what it was supposed to do and i did nothing, couldn't even be bothered to reply with a decent explanation. What would you do if week after week it never worked? It sucks BIG TIME! Its disgusting the way this is just dragging on and on and i am pretty sick of it. What do i do for a refund?

    Flickering displays in P3Dv4.3

    I only use one 1080 but the recent update to the Manager and now my 717 behaves the same by the looks of it. Flickering Panels and Lights. I re-installed but the problem still persists. and so am unable to fly it too at the moment . Its a right pain as this is my go to plane of choice! Hope they will sort it out soon.

    Engines Dying in flight

    Hey Guys and Gals. Strange situation has developed. Whilst flying both engines just quit and die. Cannot restart them no matter what i try. This has happened twice now both times whilst in flight. Its not a fuel issue related prob as there is plenty. Don't know if this is related to the recent updates or not but had no issue before then. Don't know what to suggest unfortunately so i am not much help there! Hope this is enough info. regards Plexi.

    Any Airstairs?

    ah what a shame. Would look great with some Airstairs. Never mind what with GSX and all. Still looks a right little smasher though! Thanks for the reply gamesyns.

    Any Airstairs?

    Hi All done a search to see if there is any info on the Airstairs. They are missing on the B717. But I couldn't find anything. Will there be any? Is it something to be added later? Just curious 'cause i'm only a short a## and getting in and out of it is painfull!

    Virtual Memory

    Hi Guys and Gals. Many thanks for the comments, its much appreciated. I have turned down my Autogen and Scenery Complexity and gave it a poke and a push and its much better. I can do a whole flight now and it copes ok. For @Joseph44 Although things are turned down a few notches so to speak things outside the window still look good, i mean there are little differences but for now i can more than live with it. Inside i have not had any issues with the VC ,albeit quite weird sitting in an MD-11/ MD-88 and seeing Boeing but hey as long as it doesn't say Airbus!! ....ok i know...it doesn't say Boeing, i only jest . Cockpit doesn't look as sharp as it does in some You Tube Vids which i was a bit disappointed with especially when you consider how compressed the Vids are on there. But hey Ho i'm a happy chappy right now. Its a great little addition to my fleet, me thinks if your PC is up to it you'll be happy. To @Novej I have not had to change my FSX.cfg i have not had the option for 4096, its at 1024 and yep all is pretty ok. But don't rule me out looking in the wrong place! As regards P3dv4 I have heard and read good and not so good cant say i have heard or read bad about it. I am gonna leave it on the back burner for awhile and see how things pan out as the weeks go by as Novej said all those addons, Scenery, Aircraft,...hope! Thanks all Many Regards Plexi.

    Virtual Memory

    Thanks for the response guys. I guess i'll have to get P3dv4 then? That's a bit steep i think. Spent a small fortune on FSX and all that goes with it as you guys well know and have done yourselves. I am a bit gutted to have to change for one plane though. Why do they not say its not so hot for FSX before you buy it? That really P3D is the way to go with this aircraft. Its a shame, its a great little plane but if its not going to get me any further than 20 or so miles from the field before it comes to a screaming halt and crashes FSX its about as useful as a bus with no wheels! I wonder is there anyone that can max out any of these sims with out these problems cropping up all the time, seems a bit stupid to give all these options in the first place if they are unobtainable. I would have to re-purchase all my PMDG aircraft and i have all of them apart from the piston pounder. Orbx has issues with P3d with a lot of its stuff. i'm getting depressed just typing this!! I think i'm going to go find a dark corner and sit awhile. Thanks Guys regards Plexi.
  12. Hi Guys and Gals. Got an issue that's causing me a right headache. Every time i try to fly this aircraft within 5 to 10 minutes i get a message telling me i have run out of virtual memory then shuts down FSX. My PC Specs are Asus MB X-99 Deluxe. Intel i7-5820k CPU@ 3.30GHZ. Corsair 16mb Ram. NVidia GeForce GTX980 4G On board Memory. 1t SSD. Any ideas. Tried most of what has been suggested but no luck so far. Am i lacking in something somewhere? Thanks in advance Many regards Plexi.

    Strange Addon manager behaviour

    Not for me. I've just bought the thing as well!! Sat in the cockpit for a quick look then went off to bed. Today i get all of the above Credentials blah blah. Whats even more worrying is i see people posting about it but no response from the Management. Is this normal practice? I would have thought twice about making such an expensive purchase if this is the case. Edit: The House colours look great one of the best I've seen.
