  1. It is most likely the cpu being overloaded. Blurry terrain is a sign of the cpu being overloaded (the terrain loading in P3D is heavily multithreaded now). When the cpu can't keep up with demand, in an attempt to maintain frame rate, it starts dropping texture loading first...hence the blurries. Something was eating your cpu cycles for that to happen. You can discover what this is with Task Manager, Perf tab, and app tab. You didn't say what cpu you have, but, suffice it to say, if it is a 4-core then it is not difficult to oversaturate 4 cores with P3D. Eventually, the sim could potentially drop out (CTD) if the thread saturation continues. The KERNALBASE type of errors are generally cpu-related.
  2. Two points (well, one point, and one question) 1. Mathijs, Hans let the cat out of the bag on at least one occasion, I knew there was something coming, but I didn't know about the CRJ1000! Wonderful news Hans and Aerosoft! 2. To clarify -- to show the chart data, does the EFB require a Navigraph Charts subscription?
  3. By the way, Lukla is looking great! Really excited for Limesim and Aerosoft.
  4. Hopefully there will be some carry-over -- maybe some of the 3D models can be re-used for MSFS.
  5. Ken -- have you tried using FSUIPC to set up a reverse thrust zone for your throttles?
  6. This looks really good! And that airport is in a neat setting, Tatry area. If I may ask, how easy was it for you to get pictures of the airport and airport objects/buildings? For example, the radar structures -- did they let you go out there and take pics right next to the radar and radar buildings? Or did you rely on some internet source for photos?
  7. Are you sure about that? One of the target platforms for Microsoft Flight Simulator is the XBox, and it is not exactly a powerhouse of hardware.
  8. Possibly EditVoicePack can do what you wish? it is worth investigating, anyway.
  9. DC-8's were hotrods, especially when unloaded -- in testing one of them broke the sound barrier -- the first civilian airliner to go supersonic, beat the Concorde by several years. I have de-rated the aircraft on takeoff when light, but, I didn't have any resources for correct EPR etc. for that. I just guessed, my luxury as a sim pilot. If Michael can find some info on de-rate that would be nice.
  10. Consider also that those types of people will be the loudest (but not necessarily the most numerous), *but* there are many of us who remain quiet (an uncounted), who would gladly pay full freight for a version that had all the modern goodies...rain on the windshield, PBR, etc. etc.
  11. If you decide to add it, hopefully this will just be an option, and not default behavior?
  12. What STAR was it? What airport? What AIRAC are you using? Maybe if you posted that information, someone else could fly the same routing to give more data points?
  13. Note what I said, that I, "haven't noticed" it happen, not that it doesn't happen. Important distinction... And I'm glad you have reported it on the forum and have done this type of extensive research. It can only make a product better. I'll continue to fly the CRJ and pay more attention to how it behaves around waypoints. Thanks
  14. I don't know of any counter for the CRJ -- however, there is a freeware logbook program for P3Dv4.x that shows you your hours flown by aircraft. I've never noticed the CRJ to do hard banks, but I'll let Aerosoft address that.
  15. Was that directed at me? I misspoke. I am not (quite) perfect and do make mistakes from time to time. The faulty monitor did not CRASH any application. Rather, it hummed and buzzed and bird chirped, and would occasionally flash to black, then flip on again. It did however, effectively render my applications useless. Since the person who resurrected this thread after two years likely experienced the same thing, I thought I would relay my own experience with a buzzing sound vis a vis a PC.
  16. Hmm thanks for the heads up. I use TSS soundpack for the old CLS DC-10, and it's good. But, would THIS new airbus soundpak really be that much better than what Aerosoft has shipped with theirs? I mean, I would want to guard against buying this, only to discover that Aerosoft uses many of the same files. Haven't AS been known to work with TSS? i.e. the A330?
  17. I can't speak for him solving his issue, BUT I can say that I have had a bad monitor do that (buzz thru speakers and complete random lockups). Your issue may be power supply related. Power supplies are relatively cheap, too. You might consider stress-testing your PC using a program like Prime95. That will push your cpu to 100% and max its power demand, I would think -- this might help you narrow down the psu as the cause.
  18. The only place where PBR might remotely "wow" me would be in the VC. But I have to say even in scenery, it's...ok...but I can't say I'm blown away by it. Going forward I can certainly see including it though. It is an incremental visual improvement. Really if devtime is going to be spent, I'd rather it go for something immersive like visual icing.
  19. ah, the elusive Honeycomb hardware. Like a Bigfoot sighting...legendary...and maybe real or unreal Do you know if that can be configured to use, for example, just 3 of 4 throttle levers? I'm thinking in terms of a DC-10, or Falcon 50.

    The Aerosoft Upper Double Frammis, of course!
  21. Is this something that should be in a present update, or something coming?

    I have restarted one engine in flight before. I think I did it using bleed air from the other three engines. It's been a few months so it is hard for me to remember, but I'm pretty sure I simply used the normal start procedure, and luckily with three running engines I had enough air to start the one engine. A true "air start" would be if you didn't have sufficient bleed air, correct?
  23. I assumed the printer was getting data akin to ACARS. I also assumed that was a subset of Global Flight Ops. Assumptions can be dangerous they say? I'm really struggling with how useful the wx printout would be, if it's pulling from ATIS and its limited range. In real life, wouldn't the flight crew be getting destination weather via ACARS many, many nm away, so that they could properly program the correct STAR and runway?
  24. "so you will have to be close to the airport to get the weather." So, if I am still 300 nm from my destination EHAM (flying over, say, Berlin at cruise), and my wx source is set to "sim", will it give me the weather over Berlin (where I'm presently flying), or will it give me the weather at EHAM at that moment?
