Re: P3D v3 Won't Launch Stuck on Splash Screen

After many hours of work (editing process permissions, editing/cleaning the Registry, using MS SysInternal Tools -- Process Monitor, clean P3D re-installs) I finally found the "approximate" reason why Prepar3D v3.4 (3.4.22.19868) would not launch on my computer. My Logitec G930 Wireless Headset, if ...

P3D v3 Won't Launch Stuck on Splash Screen

My P3D v3 will no longer launch -- just sits stuck on splash screen. Last time I used it, which was months ago, it was fine. I've made no changes to any files or settings related to P3D. I have the latest C++ distributables, latest Microsoft .Net, and latest Nvidia graphics drivers. I've tried delet...

Re: Strange Flight Performance at Sedona Airport KSEZ

I fly in both FSX and Prepar3d with Orbx global and the Orbx Sedona global airport add-on and I've flown into Sedona with light aircraft and never experienced what you have. Thought it worth mentioning. Also you might want to make sure that Thermal Visualization in the Prepar3d Weather section of t...

Re: Correct Ridge Lift Issue at Airports on Plateaus

When I installed OrbxFTX and OrbxSEZ (Sedona Airport) the phenomenon went way. So it's something with P3Ds basic weather/wind modelling...

P3D Log File?

Does P3D create a log file that would be useful for troubleshooting problems? If it does, how do I find it?

Thanks!

Re: Correct Ridge Lift Issue at Airports on Plateaus

Thanks Ed for that observation. I'm a very new user to P3D. So have you seen this anomaly at all airports in the mountains or is it something that shows up at smaller airports everywhere? It's not encouraging if this has been a long standing anomaly that's well known by the P3D Team that's gone with...

Correct Ridge Lift Issue at Airports on Plateaus

Hello, Could the P3D team please correct the weather/aerodynamics anomaly where when trying to land at airports on plateaus, like Sedona, Arizona (KSEZ), that with any wind there's so much ridge lift one can't even land. One can cut the engine, put the gear down, full flaps, and just fly/glide above...

Please Show P3D Actions on Launch for Troubleshooting

Please change the launch splash screen so one can see what P3D is doing, what files are being loaded or programs being executed during launch, so that when it hangs up we can tell what step is causing it... It's very frustrating to just have a launch hang up just showing the splash screen and busy c...

Re: P3D Startup Stuck on Splash Screen

I'm posting this for the benefit of the tech support people helping us and other users... So this morning, I try to bring up P3D, and it's stuck on the splash screen again...! So, I go find every add on application that P3D is trying to run -- RealAir Legacy V2, Flight 1 GTN 750, and Garmin GTN 750 ...

Re: Strange Flight Performance at Sedona Airport KSEZ

Your were correct Ed, I set weather to "Clear All Weather" and the anomaly went away. I hope LM will fix that "ridge lift" issue with it's wind modeling...

Thanks,

Re: P3D Startup Stuck on Splash Screen

I deleted all those folders and files again and it finally launched to the setup window. Installed RealAir Legacy V2 again, and it still worked. Installed Flight1 GTN 750 and it stopped working again. I deleted and reinstalled Flight 1 GTN 750 and now it's all working again... Have to redo all my co...

[RESOLVED] P3D Startup Stuck on Splash Screen

I'm a new P3D user, just installed it. I thought I solved my P3D launching problems when I dropped using SLI, two graphics cards. Now it's back to being stuck on the splash screen and I still have SLI disabled. I have to go to the Task Manager to stop the application. Any suggestions...? Thanks, Val...

Re: Strange Flight Performance at Sedona Airport KSEZ

Default or Orbx? I landed a PMDG B736 BBJ there a few weeks ago no problem. Using AS16. Mountain flying in a light aircraft is a different world. Might not be noticeable in a big airplane in the sim. FSX didn't have this anomaly. And, I fly a real airplane in and out of the real KSEZ and, of course...
