Re: Slew Problems

This has happened to me before. Try going in to the P3D settings and disabling your controllers (disable your Joystick) BEFORE you slew. The slew may be receiving input or spikes from the controller(s), thus causing the issue.

Re: Random unwanted engine shut downs

Are you perhaps using the Lorby Si LiveTraffic program? If yes, then see this thread on Avsim here:

Re: Natural Thermal visualization - Birds

<bump>

Perhaps my original post was TLDR ...

All I want to want to know is whether people do, or do not, see the circling birds in P3Dv4.5 to show thermal activity?

Natural Thermal visualization - Birds

I recall seeing plenty of thermals indicated by circling birds in FSX ... (natural thermal visualization setting). But, since my upgrade to P3D (v4.5 with Hotfix 2), I have not seen a single circling bird. Not one. Perhaps this is related to autogen draw distance or special effects settings (mine ar...

Re: ATC no longer recognizing certain Airlines?

To my knowledge, no, the only file used by ATC to recognise the airline names is the "airlines.cfg" file. That said, I should qualify this response by saying that I do not work for LM, and therefore that response could be incorrect. I provide my answer purely because that is the only file I have eve...

Re: I7 8700 vs I7 9700K upgrade question/preformance

Do you use Affinitymask? Since I set it to the first 6 cores only, I get much better performance. Almost no lagging anymore. Of course all machines are different and mileage varies from machine to machine. In my case, no, I don't use AffinityMask. I am extremely happy with the performance I am gett...

Re: I7 8700 vs I7 9700K upgrade question/preformance

I too use the NH-U12S air cooler with the i7-9700K (no overclock). I have a 650W power supply. Running P3D v4.5 HF2. I don't push the P3D sliders all the way up, but they're still reasonably high (as with everything Flight Simulator, find the right compromise of slider settings that work for you and...

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...
