  13. sparks_smudge liked a post in a topic by LewisBloom in List add-ons FSX/P3D to run over a network   
    I've had this come up a few times in recent months and my advice is going to ruffle some old guard feathers but its there. Not aimed at anyone just a vent haha
    Personally, Advice is simply this, if you are buying a new multi-core PC with GPU and running modern software, why do you need to go the complex route of off-loading like pre multi-core days compared to just going the easier slightly less complex route of configuring correctly and setting up a modern single system?
    Years gone by the network route was great but hardware and software has moved on quite a bit since then, enough to essentially make almost all the pros of doing such a setup now non-existent or at least on a par with a single system whilst requiring a shed load more energy and potential troubleshooting when it all goes balls up.
    This stuff tends to be a grind my gears situation (Wheres N00dle) because its similar to the mythical annoying stuff that floated around fs land in which peiople where installing the sim outside of the default location to try to avoid issues rather than simply understand windows folder options and correctly click a couple clicks ot set the sim up correctly in its default position whilst also understanding a little more about ones own computer and its operation. *insert grindy teeth sound here* 
    Ignore everything ive said if you are gonna stream, and want a stream pc, but otherwise for fs alone the energy can be better spent making sure the single system is the best it can be and the system is setup correctly, plenty of cores, memory and GPU can in 2017 serve better than a couple mid range or lower systems hacked and slashed together to try to perform as good as one top end computer.

    We are happy to provide brand new native, 64-bit Prepar3D Version 4 Accu-Sim airplanes to existing A2A Prepar3D Version 3 customers starting on the day of P3Dv4 release, May 30th, 2017.

    On the May 30th release date, customers who purchased the Accu-Sim Prepar3D C172 trainer from A2A will be able to visit our store (www.a2asimulations.com/store) and download the new 64-bit version of our Accu-Sim C172 Trainer for Prepar3Dv4.

    More versions of our existing fleet of Prepar3D aircraft will be released in the following days, including the Piper “Cherokee,” C182 “Skylane,” Piper “Comanche 250,” North American T-6 “Texan,” and the Lockheed Martin “Constellation.” As new A2A Prepar3Dv4 aircraft are released, they will also be sent to our other distribution partners.

    Lastly, we are very pleased with the performance and overall results of the new native Prepar3D v4 system. A lot of effort has been put into these new 64-bit Prepar3Dv4 Accu-Sim aircraft, and we are pleased to offer these upgrades complimentary to our existing customers.

    Although I'm not able to attend as i'll be at Oshkosh later in the year working I wonder if any of the lounge gang will be at Flightsimcon 2017 coming up in June?
    http://flightsimcon.com/
     
    If anyone is I know A2A Simulations Scott will be present but not exhibiting this year, as will Lockheed guys and others, not to mention the long list of exhibitors. Might be good idea to try and get some questions answered hehe.

    thanks chaps, i'm looking over the links in pers thread now (should be public forum really its so damn good). Was worried about it being mostly listed for XP10 and what with XP11 being PBR and lots of other larger changes not sure what mods would work or could cause issues, and use old technology rather than make use of the new fun in XP11

    With Saitek kit like the trim wheel and TPM being so great it was sad to see them essentially disappear along with the range of saitek controls over the past year. Well apparently they are coming back finally, so we should be able to get proper entry level pricing again on some great sim cockpit bits to enhance our immersion;
