Re: game crashing and cant seem to fix it

I've been running P3D v4.5 since about April, after my FSX PC died and I bought a new PC. I was experiencing an issue similar to the OP where the sim would simply close, mid-flight, with no warning, no errors, and nothing in Windows Event Viewer. After a bit of research, I read a thread advising tha...

Re: Rotating beacon

Before moving to P3D, I ran FSX. I have been running P3D since about April (2019). I have P3Dv4.5 with Hotfix 1. For me, on the ground, at the airport, the beacons work fine ... they rotate normally, I see both white (or is it yellow?) and green lights, and they are bright. However, from the air it'...

Re: ORBX CENTRAL ISSUES

Whilst this doesn't directly answer your question, I figured I'd mention that I have had no issues, scenery related or other, with the ORBX Central app and P3Dv4.5 (with Hotfix).

Re: Flight Planner

I concur with sircaptgordo. I am running P3Dv4.5 with Hotfix. The Flight Planner is painful. Like sircaptgordo, I just want to create a basic flight plan and fly. I don't want to go through the full SimBrief or other third party flight planner steps. All I want is to create a quick flight plan and m...

Re: Stuttery panning when limiting framerate?

My monitor's refresh rate is 75Hz. If I lock the framerates to, say, 30, I get stuttering ... exactly like that shown in that video. However, if I lock the framerate to a number which divides evenly in to 75, then the stuttering is almost non-existent. For example, if I set it to 25, I don't notice ...

Re: Using fps limiter bad stutters

A follow up ... Well, I finally decided to "bite the bullet" and have now applied the 4.5 Hotfix (client), including updating my add-ons for appropriate compatibility. There were a few initial niggles and some error messages as I systematically updated my add-ons ... but the error messages gave me t...

Re: Using fps limiter bad stutters

Freddy, If there ever was a candidate for the hotfix, you're it. That fix was, if I remember correctly, it was designed explicitly to get rid of stutters.... Interesting that you say that. After my previous FSX PC died, I bought a new PC and purchased P3D (v4.5). So this is basically a completely n...

Re: Using fps limiter bad stutters

I have a similar issue. If I set a value for the internal FPS limiter, my sim (v4.5 without Hotfix) stutters. My monitor does not support 60Hz at full resolution and, therefore, I am also not really able to use the 30Hz trick. However, here is what I found (on my system) ... At full resolution, my m...

Re: Autotow

I recall reading, many years ago, about "autotow". I couldn't find anything today on Google about it -- but, to be honest, I didn't really try all that hard. That said, this reply is not about autotow. Instead, it is about another method that supposedly can be used to get the tow plane to do turns i...
