!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

  1. Greetings, I have preformed all of these steps trying to troubleshoot this problem long before I made my post here in this forum. When I updated my computer I installed 2 SSD 1GB hard drives and installed my operating system on one and the other has a fresh clean install of P3D and only programs and scenery that are connected to flight sim. There is no misc programs or junk on the one SSD drive that contains flight sim. To uninstall P3D and all of my scenery and addons just to TRY and see if that fixes the issue with the CRJ when I have a host of other nice planes that I can fly with out any issues is not something that I am willing to do at this point. I have kind of come to the conclusion that there is something in the way the CRJ is programed that the AMD processor does not handle the same way as an intel processor does and that it may be what is causing the trouble. I appreciate the suggestions and if anyone else has an opinion please let me know. Gene
  2. Greetings, As I stated in my original post I have uninstalled and reinstalled this plane multiple times. I also stated that I updated the client only. I always delete the cfg and shaders after each modification. I have tried turning off all weather and that makes no difference in performance Thanks
  3. Greetings, I did have the same issue when I was running P3D v 4.4 and I am sure I am running 4.5.12 as it is the version that was with the hotfix and my CRJ is v
  4. Greetings, I have an issue that I have been trying to solve for several months. As you can see in my signature my computer is not a particularly low end but it is not high end either. I fly a number of add on aircraft besides the CRJ and do not experience any of the problems that I have with the CRJ. I fly all of the iFly 737/747 aircraft, as well as the Majestic Q400, several Carenado planes, a couple of A2A planes and several of the P3D default planes. What I am experiencing is when I load the CRJ into any airport either add on or default my initial fps are in the mid 20's. My CPU is in the 40-50% usage range and my GPU is below 10% usage. I might add that my other add on planes are in this area of CPU usage but the GPU usage is 30-40% When I load up I always cycle the plane from "Ready to Taxi" to "Cold and Dark" I then proceed to go thru the check list and make my plane ready for flight. By the time I am ready to taxi my fps is down to 8-10 with the CPU and GPU usage still the same. After take off there is little or no improvement in fps but the sim seems to be pretty smooth with just a slight stutter every now and then. The big issue is if I turn on the weather radar then the stutters become more pronounced and last 1 or 2 seconds at a time and the fps drops to 4-5. I have tried more slider combinations than I can even list all the way from default to full max and every combination in between and I see no improvement in the performance of this plane. I have searched over and over again for what may be causing this issue and why it only effects your plane and none of my other add on planes. I REPEAT I have no fps issues with any other aircraft but the Aerosoft CRJ 700/900 plane. I would appreciate any feedback as to why this may be happening. Is it my setup? Why would it not effect my other planes? My sim settings? They are the same for my other planes. My Scenery? I use the same for all my other planes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled this plane more times than I can remember as well as re-downloading more than once. I just would like to find some kind of explanation as to this issue and look forward to seeing the comments and suggestions. Thank you in advance for your help.

  5. I'll pass this on to any guess having throttle issues with FSUIPC. I played around doing different things until this finally worked. After assigning throttles, go to the calibration page. At each block for each throttle, there's a button that says reset. It will clear the min mid and max axis data. Just by doing this and leaving it alone, I get full throttle range. Works like a charm now, give it a shot. Greetings, Finally after much trial and error this too worked for me. Thank you for the suggestion so now I can have a much more realistic flight.
  6. Greetings, Well I have tried just about every combination that I can think of to map one throttle lever to one engine with out any success. I have a CH Throttle Quadrant and a CH Yoke and I have used the P3D v3 controls as well as FSUICP with either option if I map each engine to a separate throttle lever I can get no more than 40% advance. I have also used the CRJ manager program to select the two options for FSUICP and had the same results. However if I map both engines to one throttle lever either the throttle lever on then yoke or just one of the throttle levers on the throttle quadrant then I get full motion of the throttles. I can fly the plane and have done so but I would like to see at some time a fix so that I can have a more realistic flight experience If anyone knows of any solution that can be done I am watching this forum each day hoping to see a solution. Thanks for any and all help.
  7. Greetings, I have also been having throttle issues. I have both the ch yoke and the ch throttle quadrant. I tried using the controls in my p3d v 3 sim and could not get over 50% travel then I set up the throttles using FSUICP following the instructions in the documentation with the same results. My next try was to us FSUICP and assign the throttle to just one lever on the yoke and it worked. The next try was to remove the assignment from the yoke and just assign the throttle to one lever on the throttle quadrant and that got me full range of motion on the throttles in the cockpit. So my conclusion is there is a problem when you try to assign each engine throttle to it's own lever. Maybe that will be a fix in an upcoming update but for now I can at least fly using the one throttle lever. Hopes this may help some of the other pilots that are experiencing these issues.
