    P3d = FSX???

    I can't even find any of my FSX boxes since we moved and built the new house, so I'm running P3D as well on the 737 sim and the smaller version downstairs. Works well so far, but a bit of a pain having to run in a legacy mode to get FSiNN to run for VATSIM I'm a little concerned about a 64 bit P3D 2.0 insofar as to what developers will cross over and develop on a 64 bit platform when they know there won't be any 64 bit FSX ever, but perhaps between that and DX11 the graphics will look good enough for awhile. When ProSim737 works correctly with XP10 I'll be switching the 737 sim over to that. Just need to have two more PCs finished to be able to do my visuals the same way (separate undocked windows) as XP10 doesn't work that way.
  3. Well I lost my space in the basement when we built the home theater and bar, so I'm now out in the 3rd bay of the garage. Works well and none of the six kids bother me when I'm out there Now I only wished I ran a beer tapper line from the bar keg to the garage
  4. Thanks! Mostly active on cockpitbuilders.com. Friend of mine is running five 60" LEDs over there...simply amazing

    Their audience isn't the home simmer. It's commercial developers and companies..... I mean technically even a private pilot using for home use is supposed to use the Pro version....
  6. Looks awesome on Scott's cockpit. Had a chance to fly it before he went 5 TVs. http://youtu.be/YXry4oG5L8E

    Nothing posted in awhile except "hopefully 2013" Worried about them going back to the old pricing structure with 2.0 though. That was -$750 for pro and $10 a month for developer with no academic offered .
  8. That's what I was saying, wait until you need it

    They stated in their forums that 2.0 will need a new paid key
  10. When you move to XP10 64 bit you can up that RAM
  11. Three views on one PC now. I5-3570k, GTX680 using surround TVs are Panasonic P60U50 plasma's. 2012 model now out of stock most places. $810 each delivered, though Frys had them as low as $699 at times. They are 1080p. Have two more PCs half built in anticipation of moving to XP10 as soon as ProSim737 works correctly with it.
  12. MIP / CDU bay / CDU and Glareshield are all Flightdeck Solutions The shell is their old wood one I bought from someone upgrading to their new metal one Seat and interior liners are from a 737-300 Motorized throttle from Revolution-Simproducts (Now called Revolution Jetstream for their consumer level) MCP and Dual EFIS are CPFlight EL series Yoke is an Ace yoke Visuals are three Panasonic 60" Plasma's on homemade mounts Some pedestal radios (not shown) are Flightdeck Solutions Forward Overhead (in work now) is Flightdeck Solution IBL panels, haven't decided on the 6 gauges yet Systems and Avionics software is ProSim737 Simulator Software is Prepar3d, but working to get Xplane 10 running next. To GO: FO Yoke FO CDU Real Rudders Aft Overhead Finish Pedestal Jrails for seats Also changing the MIP to the 2.0 series which adds the latest 737 config, two more Annunciators below the AFDS, new dual state, dual color AFDS.
  13. Approaching KSTL Costs a bit No reason to use PMDG with hardware cockpits. Use ProSim, Sim Avionics or Project Magenta and make the interfacing a heck of a lot easy than trying to use software designed as a software package with limited hardware functionality. Finally nice to be flying again
  14. Been building this 737 on and off for the past three years. Finally dusted it off again and got going. Still need to wire the overhead and get the FO yoke, but its at least flyable now so that should keep me motivated...
