    VAS Issues

    This plane is the heaviest on VAS out of any of the payware i have. Runs out of memory after 1.5 flights. That just started with the opt in beta on my PC

    1.0.6.5 First small issue

    FSX acceleration gold ASN ORBX scenery Windows 8.1 i7 4770 GTX760 32GB RAM 1.0.6.5 TFDI 717 VERSION Hardware rendering off. Run FSX as admin, Get in trike , go to airport. Any good payware. VHHH or Fly tampa KTPA. Shut down trike, Get in 717. establish ground power. Move location to another payware airport, KSFO Flightbeam, Out of memory, sim exits. I know this isn't what you do with a high fidelity product but its a good test for my computer. I can do the exact test with any PMDG product, FSlabs, Captain sim, Etc and do not have any issues with memory. I generally have my sim set up so i get about 1 out of memory a year max, Sliders backed off, etc. I had this same issue with the Flysimware Lear 35 when it came out. I used this test for them during testing and they finally narrowed it down to a issue with there floodlighting tasking too much VAS for FSX users. Anyway. Ill keep messing with it and see if anything changes. Thats my 330AM report.

    Ok, Cool. Thank you . I am having a memory issue now but im going to keep testing so i can give you guys something hard before i write it up. So far its just using A lot of memory. More than any other plane i have installed. All the normal name brands. Ill mess around and see what i find out.

    I cant either! It wont do it again. Go ahead and delete this one!
  7. Just doing a quickie test with it before a real flight. On rotation i got a bank angle call out. Started cold and dark, proper procedures all the way to take off done. Ill try it again in a bit and see if it happens. Otherwise TFDI........ You guys are still awesome. This plane is just getting better and better!

    Engine sounds

    The wheel spin sound is for sure a thing on these planes but this sound is very much a engine spool down type sound. I have watched the engine gauges and dont see a trend of spooling down. The tire rolling sound should increase until the nose wheel comes off the ground.
  12. Try to keep in mind, that "faithful" Triple 7 was anything but when it released. It caused many headaches and still has unresolved problems. I can look back over the 20 plus years of doing this and point out just about All of them had issues. What sets these guys apart is the customer service they are offering. As i said, over 20 years in this game and these guys trump any of the customer service i have received in this simulated land. I can name a few planes that got released not ready, but its pointless. I understand your issue and understand why you wanted to get it out in the forum.... BUT, its been talked about quite a bit. I fly this plane by hand from the gate to 10,000' and from 8,000' or so to the gate, I love the way it hand flies. When the ATS acts up a simple double click with your thumb and its all manual. No one is " numb to her flaws" . I simply can see the great potential this bird has, I can overlook the issues and be excited for the fine tuned finished product in the future. I have done over 6 proper gate to gate flights under the most strictly scrutinized ACARS system in the sim world and they have ALL been " by the numbers" . The plane did not make that happen, when she would act up. I would just fly the plane get her back in order and let it take over again. I guess i just learned to be patient when i can see the light at the end of the tunnel. 20 years and THOUSANDS of dollars spent will do that to a guy. The plane is released, more people are enjoying it than not. The awesome TFDI team will make it right. Until then, i suggest you do exactly what you plan. walk away for a bit, come back in a while and fall in love with the little maddog like myself and many others already have. Just my opinion on the matter, This IS a forum. "noun: forum" "a place, meeting, or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged." So, you did exactly what you should have in this setting and i did it back. Good luck on next semester, See you when you come back.
