  1. Your father is, indeed, one of the greatest generation....God bless him and all who served........and those died for what they believed.....
  2. You are so right. My father, who I never knew, was killed on Guadalcanal in November 1942. I was born one month later. Memorial Day is very special to me. I don't understand what's so hard about remembering what this day means. Maybe it's just because I'm getting on in years...........Doug
  3. +2. I wouldn't do anything right now. There is speculation that the increased VRAM on the 1080's will do wonders for v4 but I'm going to sit back and wait to see what happens in the next couple of months. For sure, changing the GPU will do nothing for FSX nor v3. I think it's just too soon to tell..........Doug
  4. P3D

    I'm one of the young guys (75). I've run both sims since the beginning. On the one hand I think FSX is just fine. On the other hand I agree with Sinper 31. At our age, what the hell, go for it. The worst thing that can happen is that you decide it was a mistake. But, if you're like me, many things in life have been a mistake and this doesn't even rank on the top 1000..........Doug
  5. Willy The Shake said....(other than the OOM problem)....Much Ado About Nothing..................
  6. No, you're right, almost. 200mbs converts to 25mBs (not 2.5 but I think you already know that - it's just a typo). The small "b" is the abbreviation for bit and the capital "B" is the abbreviation for byte. One byte contains 8 bits so to convert from bits to bytes divide the bit count by 8. Conversely, to convert from bytes to bits multiply the byte count by 8..........Doug
  7. There is a shift indeed. The longer I've been retired, the earlier I get up in the morning. Most days now I'm roaming around the house at 4am. Oh, for the good old days when I was working and sleeping as late as I could so I'd avoid the temptation of going into the office early .
  8. Frank - I knew you had a really good cockpit setup but I didn't know it was anything like this......I'm simply speechless. I just watched this for the third time and all I can say is WOW! Great job..........Doug
  9. The problem probably isn't LOWI or PMDG. With a full ORBX scenery install (all products), fair weather, and all the sliders full-right I'm sitting on RWY 26 in the PMDG 737NG and the VAS used is 2.6 GB. With the default 737 the VAS used is 1.9 GB. Which PMDG aircraft are you using? Any other add-ons active?..........Doug
  10. Great stuff! As my kids used to say "you done good". If I were to change rigs today I would do exactly what you have done (with the exception of Win10). I've seen several reports on this configuration and they all read pretty much like yours. It looks like you may have found the best hardware combination available...........Doug
  11. Interesting post Gary. I've pretty much gone back to FSX also because of P3D stutter problems that I can't fix. I threw in the towel a couple of weeks ago. And I thought I was the only guy crazy enough to do that . Anyway, it's comforting to know that I'm not the only one ..........Doug
  12. Probably a good move. I've never had a repair work yet..........Doug
  13. Here's the best tutorial available to uninstall/reinstall FSX..... ..........Doug
  14. Good show Dale. I'm really glad you're back in the skies again. And I have to say, my family's has been in Texas for 170 years and I've never heard of the dreaded BRS disease either. ROFLMAO..........Doug
  15. To force a migration: start FTXCv3, select the sim, and click on "Settings" in the lower left corner. Then click on the blue box on the right called "Force Migration"..........Doug
