Re: Blurry Terrain Prepar3D V4.5 Please help!!

I have a laptop with Intel + Nvidia, too (not as the main simming computer, but still). Did you go into the Nvidia Control Panel|3D Settings? Under Program Settings you can select the program (in this case Prepar3d) and choose the preferred graphics adapter. Is this one set to NVIDIA High Performanc...

Re: Blurry Terrain Prepar3D V4.5 Please help!!

Thanks for trying to help! What should I set my Anisotropic to? The default for P3D is "use global setting" and the global setting is "application controlled". That's what I use at present. I use the highest setting in Prepar4d (which is 16x). However, I suggested setting it to the factory default ...

Re: Blurry Terrain Prepar3D V4.5 Please help!!

You can try resetting the NVIDIA driver 3D settings to default (general plus game-specific). Not very probable, but I had this once and it helped. For whatever reason, a wrong Anisotropic Filtering setting crept in.

Kind regards, Michael

Steam VR resolution setting under Virtual Reality

I find me more and more using Prepar3d4.5 (HF2) under Virtual Reality with an ACER AH101 headset. Now, this isn't the latest and greatest device and I am expecting to switch to a HP Reverb at Christmas. Nonetheless, I try to get as much as I can from the ACER today. The ACER is WMR-based (as is the ...

Re: Popping/changing mountain mesh

Being a VFR low and slow flyer, I find it immersion-killing, even more as the clip shows the bare-bones version only. Add higher resolution mesh ORBX scenery or Pilot's Ultimate mesh and the effect will be much enhanced.

Kind regards, Michael

Re: Popping/changing mountain mesh

Interesting... I don't think I have ever seen this happen... but I use FreeMesh worldwide. Jorgen I think it depends on the style of flying, too. I suppose, pure airliner pilots might never become aware of the issue. On the one hand, you wan't notice mesh popping at FL350. On the other hand, most m...

Re: Popping/changing mountain mesh

This is an age-old issue which Prepar3d inherited from the ESP engine. All simulators based on the ESP/FSX engine share it to a degree. Even Dovetail's FSW sported that "feature". I've been told it's caused by higher resolution meshs being progressively loaded while approaching a certain site. It be...

Re: VR can you use the mouse pointer?

I don't understand this VR cursor thingy at all. I use an Acer WMR headset. After switching to VR I get the "dot" cursor. I can move this either (i) using the mouse, or (ii) chaning gaze direction. This is irritating. Besides, the "dot" cursor is pretty big and ugly. Sometimes the mouse function is ...

Re: Can't access airspace/airports in Western USA

1. How do you do a "full backup of all sim-related files"? It seems to me they are scattered all over the hard drive. 2. Where and what are "all configuration directories"? 3. You mention "the full installer (and only this one, not the individual ones)." Maybe this will become clear when I try to d...

Re: Can't access airspace/airports in Western USA

This may be a coincidence, but I had this very same issue a few days ago, too. I was unable to take off from KSFO, CYVR, KLAX, and other West Coast Airports. Australia and Europe, at least those I tried, in ORBX were fine. I took off fine from Eglin and used the slew mode and as soon as I came close...

RealityXP Popup in Virtual Reality

Hi, did anyone try to get the RealityXP GTN 750 Popup to work in Virtual Reality? I use a WMR ACE AH101, Prepar3d4.5, VR as such works okay. The RealityXP Popup works as well in 2D, but in VR I run into the following issue: I can press buttons, the map display works, and all such. However, the GPS i...

Re: Acer ah101 Windows Mixed Reality

I have been using the ACER AH101 with Prepar3d (using native VR support) from time to time (alternating with a 2D screen). It works, given you installed the required programs named by Daube.
