Re: Smooth and No Stutters - suggested solution

I don't have time to address everything mentioned in this thread, but I wanted to clarify a few points. The 2D instrument panels (xml/c++) do update at an 18hz rate. This is documented in the SDK. - The 3D scene is updated and rendered every frame. (I believe this includes xml scripted animations, s...

Your first step is to look over the PDK documentation in our PDK: http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv3/LearningCenter/utilities/pdk/pdk_overview.html The two articles to look at would be: Rendering PDK Overview Camera PDK Download the SDK and checkout the PDK samples included. ...

Re: 2 GFX card - undock new view + drag to other gfx = crash

Thank you very much for letting us know what the cause was. Handling multiple views across multiple GPUs is important to us. Add-ons which use directx need to take special care when caching device pointers and reusing them. The same view can change devices when you drag a 3d window from one monitor ...

Re: PDK GetScreenCoord() trouble

The pbh value is being converted incorrectly. This function can still be used with the PBH and XYZ set to zero, and it should give you a valid screen coordinate for a given LLA. I suspect this is how must developers have been using it since this bug has been around since v2. The good news is, there ...

Re: NVIDIA 376.33 still cause FX to flicker when in SLI performance mode

All the known SLI issues are specific to Alternate Frame Rendering (AFR). If SLI is on, but AFR is not being used, you will likely not encounter the issues.

Re: NVIDIA 376.33 still cause FX to flicker when in SLI performance mode

Just recently updated to V 3.4.18.19475 and am on 375.70 drivers. Two EVGA 980 GTX in SLI. All working perfectly. I think you may have inadvertently disabled SLI, or you are running an older version of Prepar3D. The performance hit and UI flicker introduced in HF2 will require a client-side change ...

The entire globe is loaded at a fixed (relatively low) level of detail. These textures are pre-created and behave similar to add-on scenery based on imagery. For tiles within a certain radius of the camera, the terrain system generates a new textures at run-time using vector data for roads and shore...
