  1. ..........for just the TE state of Washington? If that's really true, and I'm sure it is because JV said it, I'm done with TE products. This stuff is eye-candy-only and has nothing to do with flight simulation. Ever been in a C172/737/747 level-D simulator? I have, and eye-candy has nothing to do with the experience. All this stuff I hear about "immersion" is so far off-base it's almost laughable. I wish ORBX all the luck with these products but I have flown a lot of hours in RL and ,IMNSHO, eye-candy adds very little to the flight simming experience. I have my flame suit on so disagree all you want..............Doug
  2. I see the same performance. But ORBX isn't the problem here. The problem is that I only have 16GB of RAM and once the texture loading starts hitting the pagefile everything just comes to a halt...even with JV's settings. You can test this by eliminating the pagefile. The performance will be much better but depending on location, weather, type of aircraft, etc you'll eventually get an OOM. Upgrade time is coming fast for me..especially after I read the Washington announcement .........Doug
  3. The issue I had with Acronis 2019 is the new ransomware "feature" called Acronis Active Protection. With that running it was a slideshow. Once I figured out that I had to disable it while simming all was back to normal............Doug
  4. Fair enough. I guess if I could afford the luxury of a second computer for flight-sim only that would be an answer. But, like most folks I suspect, I only have one and that will have to do. Over the years I've tried clean-boots, Black Vipers recommendations, and a host of other "lean-and-mean" stuff. None of that seemed to make a significant difference. Maybe my tired old computer just isn't up to the task...sigh. Thanks for the info and keep the new stuff coming. My credit card is always ready ..............Doug
  5. I agree Stew. And my sims are excluded from all that stuff. But, I don't consider those two items to be "so much software" or "bloatware". So the question still remains........Doug
  6. What do you consider "so much software"? Or "bloatware"?
  7. I am also an idiot. Acronis 2019 bit me in the ass too........................
  8. Wow...I spent many Saturday nights drag racing at Half Moon Bay in the early 60's. We'd tow up on Saturday afternoon, run on Saturday night, sleep in the truck, and then run Fremont on Sunday afternoon. Thanks for the memories.................
  9. How about number eight........who the hell cares what you think about FPS?
  10. Me too.....I'm done with all that TE nonsense............
  11. I have everything for P3D installed. And, please, don't ask if I've ever used all of them.........
  12. The ORBX folder wasn't hidden, it was in the main P3D folder. If that folder is gone and unless you saved a backup copy of the original downloads I'm afraid you're stuck with having to download everything again..........Doug
