  1. So, football break! Seems OK. Can't believe you guys are working on the weekend. Grab a beer and watch the games! Still some stuff to clean up but I'm sure you will get there...
  2. Thanks @Cameron! I will check it out later this afternoon. Football you know... @Krys Yes, it did solve the memory leak for me but there was still some effect that I didn't care for. So, removed XPR to the disabled folder for now but will check again with 5.0.4.
  3. I looked for (and missed) the other thread on this issue. So, yes I'm using 5.0.1 and full screen mode...
  4. Hello Team, I had the time this morning to make one of my favorite test flights from LAX to LAS in the TBM using SMPv5. - new clouds look great and seem to be much "faster" than the v4 clouds. I did need to reduce AA to 2x however. But then I do have a 1070. - The 5.0.1 fix is still wonky if I leave XPRealistic in the plug-in folder. Although the FPS does return to about normal but will fluctuate too much to warrent using that plug-in for now. - I noticed a kind of Ghosting Effect while approaching LAS. I am attaching a couple of screen shots and the log. Hope this
  5. Impressive response! Kudo's to the team. Full disclosure - XPRealistic is a "cute" plug-in but not one I would miss terribly if interaction with another plug-in caused a major issue. Still, it's a fun type of plug-in and I hope that dev will continue to work with you folks. Thanks!
  6. Hi @Willies! Please attach a log.txt file (found in the XP root folder). The support team here may require additional information but please start with this.
  7. Hi @Steve Carlson and welcome! The TBM has so much to offer besides the AOA indicator, the rain effect and the ILS function. Use the time before the update to become familiar with this great model (and to practice your RNAV approaches...LOL!) I have had this model since release and the dev team has been very good with updates. This one is taking a bit longer I admit but I would rather they get it right. I don't use VR but I'm supportive or those who do use it - I think some of the delay has to do with that function.
  8. Hi @acsuadi! Have you started to use any "landing rate" plug-in (or any other plug-in) recently. I left my xgs plug-in in my resources folder the other day when I went to play with the M20 collection and the engine would not turn over (prop did not turn). Then I remembered I still had that plug-in active. Duh!!! So, try removing any new plug-in's and see what happens.
  9. @fehrster Sarcasm aside I took the time to look at your log.txt to see if anything stood out. Nothing in there struck me as a cause of your issue. It is puzzling since my install has a good number of plug-in's, Orbx, Ortho and 3rd party airports yet it is smooth with the TBM. And everything else for that matter. So, looking outside of the basic install and the TBM are you at 1080, correct? More than one monitor? Other processes running? I see you've been at this for a while so I'm guessing you know all the Nvidia "stuff" - max power preferred and high performance selected in the contro
  10. @fehrster and @Greaser, I have no stuttering issues with the TBM when using 11.50 Vulkan. Not so with 11.50 OpenGL unless I turn the graphics settings down a bit. Same for earlier versions of XP. And the same with other 3rd party aircraft models as well. This has nothing to do with the TBM expect perhaps there's a lot going on with the system modeling. And you need to take that and other factors - plug-in's, etc. - into consideration when tuning your system.
  11. Yes, having re-read my post I can see how I came off as upset. Actually, I agree with your take on MSFS and don't know what I was thinking when I made that response so let me apologize for that lapse. Please chalk this up to the difficulty I sometimes have with digital conversations...
  12. Yes, the flight model(s) in MSFS is the only thing that's "far from being polished" in MSFS said no one ever. What's the point of that statement? MSFS is new, streams ortho (very convenient) and does a nice sky. Not actual weather, just a nice sky picture. Purchased the super deluxe or whatever and am looking forward to see where it goes. Right now it's just a promising public early access beta that will probably require a lengthy period of patches and fixes.
