Re: BMP files that cause CTD with P3Dv4

If you roll back to an earlier driver - does it work then?

Re: Scenery layering

I fail to see the problem. If the user really feels he MUST reorder the scenery he can add or edit the layer parameter. As to proprams like FSTramp and others that need to read the scenery.cfg file - why not contact the developer and have thgem update their program to do that properly? I think the x...

Re: Choice of a/c or time of day "suddenly" spoiled in v3 & v4

Do scroll bars etc work outside of P3D in other programs? Other than Windows updates, have you installed any software recently? Check mouse batteries. If it's cordless, be sure there is no interference with the transmitter. I'm thinking that the easiest way to go would be to do a repair install of P...

Yes Kevin as far as the traffic bgl files go. I had no elevation files to deal with however.

Re: Addon xml and World/Scenery

Thanks Jorge - I see it now. Layer 2 would then be the lowest point that would be considered in the World/Scenery folder.
I was getting wrapped up in the difference between folders and layers

Re: No aircraft, no buildings just terrain

Couldn'tfind a way to edit prior post butI tracked down what happened but not why. Something corrupted the ShaderHLSL folder. I have an idea which program but not going to badmouth a developer without letting them know.

I copied a backup of the original HLSL and all went back to normal.

[RESOLVED] No aircraft, no buildings just terrain

Just trying to sort this out before I just do a reinstall. W10/ 7700@5ghz - two 1979's SLI 16G ram Have been running 4.0 with no issues. Installed new 382.33 driver and rebuilt shaders. Added some Orbx regions, UTX Vectors and Toposim mesh. All with no issues. Installed beta of Envtex and installed ...

Re: Addon xml and World/Scenery

Well. I'm still trying to determine at what layer to put files that normally are installed into the World/Scenery folder.

The add-on.xml format allows you to select a layer but what layer would the world/scenery file be considered? Even if it goes "outside" of W/S - what would be that layer?

Re: Addon xml and World/Scenery

Would that be considered a Base Layer?

Re: Addon xml and World/Scenery

I also use MyTraffic and that installs at layer 114 according to others so I'm trying the other scenery right above it as it's boat traffic. So far seems ok but the instructions to put in World puzzles me. Under the old method I would just have copied the files to Scenery/World/Scenery and been done...

Addon xml and World/Scenery

For the most part I'm grasping the concepts of installing addons with the add_on.xml method but there is one thing I canot wrap my head around. Some addons have custom xyztraffic.blg files that are supposed to be placed in the Scenery/World/Scenery folder. I'm trying to determine how I would specify...

Re: v4 - AddOn Installs to ...Documents\Prepar3d v4 AddOns

Nice, but: is there a way to make P3D look up that .xml file elsewhere? Replacing all the .xml entries will become a nuissance, I fear. Michael A nuisance as opposed to having MANUALLY reinstall all the add ons? I'd MUCH rather deal with the .xml files than the entire addon uninstall/reinstall mess...

Re: Unable to extend flaps

Yes Sam, booting into safe mode. Or using MSCONFIG to do a clean boot. There may be some program not related to the sim that is trapping the keystroke. It's just a wild guess but trying to eliminate things. Also look closely at any aircraft add ons or scenery - sometimes they will install a specific...

Re: Unable to extend flaps

Look at programs outside of P3D that may be mapping the keystroke. What about safe mode? Does the issue remain? Do you use FSUIPC? Anything mapped there.

Re: P3Dv4 ability to auto save flight at intervals


If it is true that FSUIPC will have no place in the P3Dv4 environment,
It is not true. There will be an FSUIPC 5.
