Something I have to share....

I spent the past several days upgrading my X-Plane to 11.31. Overall it was a success, with only a few residual issues to deal with.

Took care of those, then hopped in, lit the burner cans, and off for a short hop from KPAE to KPDX.

Lo and behold, right around 13,000 ft something weird started happening... The screen, my beautiful 3-projector, wraparound screen, slowly faded to black!

The aircraft was flyable, still in perfect condition, but no outside view.....

So, I pulled out the dummy cabin pressurization panel and went to work. Laminar Research removed the option to turn on/off redouts and blackouts.

Thank you, LR, for making my sim more realistic? I guess?  :laugh:


HAHAHAH You better finish that panel fast! =)

Completed installation of FS FlightControl (networked) as the new IOS in my cockpit. The software can run with any P3D-based aircraft and has been custom tailored to support the Prosim flight model and cockpit suite of software.
Great package that is truly feature rich. The owner even logged into my system on the weekend to troubleshoot a problem. Turns out it was operator error.
Damn that's a nice looking software..   One of the best IOS's I have seen..  Nice

sound     8000w     8  channels could do trick upgrading from 400 watts as butt kickers really need 1000w

I can attest to Bernards phenomenal build.  What he has accomplished so far as one person just blows the mind.  I'm still struggling to finish my little rinky dink 73, lol.
