PMDG Trip7 @ FT DXB!

FSX. Maybe P3D. If the guys at PMDG are not @$$holes (and I am very sure all of them are well talented respected folks) this means they did nothing to intentionally block this aircraft from working in P3D like another company has been doing. Here is yet another PMDG beta tester: johan274  has risen from the virtual world to deliver yet another video of the imminent PMDG-777. The sounds are GREAT! The frames are not too bad with some stutter pops here and there. But i'm keeping in mind he is likely using Fraps. But also this is a FlyTampa scenery which are the very best airports to use in all 3 platforms frameswise!

I was using another company's aircraft in FSX today, because it's use is blocked in P3D (a shame really, as it's fun to fly), when I got a CDT. I didn't know what that was until I tried FSX. Back to P3D, and said aircraft is being happily returned.

Nice video, by the way.

Really nice. He only has a I5, so it should run awesome on my I7.

By tweaking and taking care about FSX you get simply the best Sim, far better than P3D

He has that i5 pegged at 4.5GHz...
That said, all current reports indicate better performance than in the NGX. So if you can run that decently, you should be able to run this even better...
As far as I understand it, Lockheed Martin will need to change their definition of P3D for PMDG to take the step. I really wouldn't be surprised if their licensing system has some sort of block on P3D, though there hasn't been any specific statement pertaining to any such measure.

P3D V2 will be the best Flight Simulator.

Morgan Freeman said...

If you say so.. meanwhile excuse me, im gonna fly my Dash8 while im waiting for PMDG 777, which are not native for P3D

PMDG=Boeing's Bitch

That is why no P3D support.

I actually think he has a very valid point. While FTX Global creates an apparent backup of various default FSX/Prepar3d files during installation, there is no mechanism in place within FTX Global that would allow anyone to restore these.

So basically you purchase FTX Global with an installer, but there is no uninstaller included, one that would restore your FSX/Prepar3d to the original state prior to installing FTX Global.

So you tell me, is this sort of practice from a developer ok? Surely they should create a restore point that would allow you to completely remove FTX Global, especially considering the crazy high price they ask for their software.

It seems that Orbx feel that they can now allow themselves such outrageous liberties, as they are dominant enough in the market.

I propose that any developer should be bound by an EULA to have to include an uninstall mechanism to allow their software to be completely removed from the end-users computer and restore it to the state it was in prior to the install. If they fail to do this, then the EULA is void and invalid.

You nailed it!

Of course, one could find another term. :)

These updates are driving me crazy! Just release the damn thing! I'm usually patient with new releases typically waiting at least two months after the release date to buy them. However, I might be one of the first with T7 this time.

The downside of the T7 release means my 737NGX, Q400, and Airbus X Extended will be grounded and parked in the hangar for a long time.

If only LM would release a 64 bit version of P3D...

I just reinstalled FSX after using P3D exclusively for the last 6 months, just incase PMDG decide to play silly beggars. No way. It looked horrible. It ran horribly. I miss my Concorde X too, which won't run on P3D. But can't go back to FSX. Sorry developers... you will get left behind.

Mark H said...

Sorry Ron, FSX has no support for the multi-threading features of the i7. Merely clockspeed rules in FSX. Current P3D will take advantage of that i7, however.

chino said...

which developer is blocking their aircraft from p3d?


PETER.....who is the bloke you mentioned at flight1?

Nice vid

I see Pravda (Avsim) is currently down.
