Re: P3D V4 The Future

Please provide an ans or your policy looking fwd it appears to me you are evading a legitimate question and concern It looks like you mistakenly think Martyson is part of L-M? Martyson is simply questioning your views and how you arrive at them, especially as they are not generally held, nor anythi...

Re: View Group Managment - FSUIPC

Hi Rob, View group windows closing during a save is by design. The reason this is done is because all view information for views within a view group is saved in an xml file. Well, PMDG's and other sophisticated aircraft add-ons which implement a lot of their own subsystems freeze the sim whilst coll...

Re: [NOT RESOLVED] View Group Managment - FSUIPC

I don't blame FSUIPC. I think it's a great program, but I only want to inform P3Dv4 users how to solve my problem. And I agree, that the designers of P3D must give this case attention.

That's why it shouldn't have been closed. I think it was L-M who blamed FSUIPC, not you!

Re: Will FSX Traffic files work in P3Dv4.5?

I have added the appropriate files (Traffic_xx.bgl) to ...\Prepar3D 4.5\Scenery\World\Scenery, but the AI aircraft don't appear at the airports. Have you added all the aircraft you need for it too? (SimObjects) MT6 was made for FSX and I still used it with P3D4 until not so long ago, when I switche...

View Group Managment - FSUIPC

The above thread (without the "NOT") has been closed as "RESOLVED". The resolution appears to be: I got a tip to look at FSUIPC. And after deactivating the autosave function in FSUIPC the problem isn't there anymore. Now this still points to a problem in P3D. All the FSUIPC AutoSave does is generate...

Re: Overclocking performance

9900k at 5.5GHz is amazing! What Vcore and cooling are you using?? I don't recall the vCore off-hand. Not as high as you'd expect. The cooler is the important part -- an external Koolance cooier which is probably itself about a third the size of the full case of the main PC. It has to be switched o...

Re: Overclocking performance

Thanks for the info. Have you tried your setup with 1 video card vs 2? Would a better card such as titan rtx, or quadro 8000/6000 improve your system? The performance was the same with one card, but the two were a little better with smoothness. Actually I currently thinking of changing to a cooled ...

Re: Overclocking performance

I’m lookin into VR flight sim for the first time since I stopped playing fsx 9 years ago. How much of a difference will Overclocking an i9900 make compared to stock? Would getting to 5.5 ghz be much of a difference over 5ghz? I don't know about VR. My system involved 3 projectors with three P3D sce...

Re: Set Weather raduis is sooooo small

i put the slew mode and kept going to and away from the airport and found that set weather on observation has a small raduis :'( I don't think it is, but each Weather Station will have its own weather set. Your setting should actually gradually blend into the weather station's weather as you move b...

Re: Possible problem with "register_key_event_handler"

I've now had a user report that the Shift+E keypress doesn't select other doors with the Select key following, maybe the problem is in the way the Macro facility is operating. No, the macro facility must be working okay, as the FSUIPC provisions for that are certainly enabling the Shift+E then Sele...

Re: Possible problem with "register_key_event_handler"

I've been doing lots of tests, and it appears this problem goes back to FSX. It isn't specific to P3D. But I cannot understand why it hasn't caused problems (before). FSUIPC does use SimConnect's "Macro begin/end" facilities to try to group those Key Events which can take a Select 1-4 qualification ...

Possible problem with "register_key_event_handler"

In FSUIPC I've always used the Gauges API function register_key_event_handler in order, mainly, to offer the option to log key events to help folks resolve problems with their settings. But I've discovered that just doing this, with no other action taken in the called handler function, certain KEY E...

Re: DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error: Is there a solution?

Some add-ons can have issues with SLI. We added additional PDK calls for developers to better support SLI with advanced aircraft features. Also 3-way SLI has been disabled for most applications for some time now by NVidia. Prepar3D doesn't natively support this. Okay. Thanks. I'll try re-configurin...

Re: DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error: Is there a solution?

Are you seeing this with a specific vehicle? I only ever use the Prosim 738. No cockpit (i.e no gauges, no display from the aircraft at all. Only scenery on a 210 FOV curved screen. Also would you be able to generate a crash dump and PM me a link? But P3D doesn't crash! The error DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_...

DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error: Is there a solution?

Only recently (since P3D4.3, and still with P3D4.4) I started to get these DXGI device has hung messages. Originally, when they started, they only occurred at dusk or at night. But I've just tried re-enabling my FTX England scenery to see what it looks like in version 4.4. Now the crash occurs in th...
