Re: Black Flickering Screen from 4.5 Hotfix installation

Hi all

Disabling the full screen optimization works also here (I have ten screens in my cockpit). Reducing FPS from unlimited to 60 works also, but then the achievable FPS are lower in comparison to unlimited. Thank you very much, Kayla, for your very helpful advice.

Best regards
Urs

Re: Viewgroup changes panel sizes

Hi Brad Thank you very much for the confirmation and your advice for a temporary workaround. Unfortunately I cannot go via the default loading, because PMDG737NGX crashes P3D, when defined and loaded as default. That's a very old story, still not solved by PMDG (at least I believe so). Actually I wi...

Re: Viewgroup changes panel sizes

Hi Brad Thank you very much for your investigations on that issue. To answer directly: yes, it happens also with Auto-Fill. To be sure, that I don't tell you rubbish, I just installed P3D_V4.3 from scratch again (program completely new installed, all existing directories set to *_old, so that they d...

Re: CTD when changing View Group

Hi I have no idea why you get a CTD, perhaps a corrupted ViewGroups.xml file. But to switch off ViewGroup at start, modify Prepar3D.cfg by setting ViewGroup_Number=-1 Then the program will start without viewgroup. You can also erase this file completely, then it is built new, without viewgroup. Rega...

Re: Viewgroup changes panel sizes

Hi Rob I was really wondering if the problem came only with V4.3, because I never noticed it before. So I reinstalled V4.2 again. And in fact, there the problem with the undocked panels does not exist! Positions and sizes remain at a new scenario start. Well, docked panels disappear also in V4.2, bu...

Re: Viewgroup changes panel sizes

Hi Rob Thank you very much for answering. I did my tests with undocked panels. Just now I tried to make a test with docked panels. But very strange, when I save the scenario with viewgroup active and two panels on the main display, they both disappear and have to be invoked again after scenario star...

Re: Viewgroup changes panel sizes

Just another remark: I have the same behaviour with the built-in Baron 58. The first selected panel from the panel list keeps its appearance, meanwhile all following panels are maximized at start with viewgroup. I hope really that someone has a look at this. Thanks.

Regards
Urs

Re: Viewgroup changes panel sizes

In the meantime I found out, that the oversizing is due to a switch of the corresponding panel window to full display. It is the same as clicking in a panel window on the single square in the title bar. But this bar is only visible in the not full screen view. To verify the problem on my test place ...

Viewgroup changes panel sizes

Hi all I use P3D V4.3 with the PMDG737NGX in a homecockpit with 10 monitors. Since V3.4 I use viewgroups for my 3-TV-visual. Now I have a problem that probably was not there in former versions. I have opened panels, undocked, moved and resized them to the correct positions, locked them, then saved t...

Panel locking problem

Hi P3D team Since version 4.3 I have a problem with panel locking. I use six monitors in my homecockpit. Up to V4.2 it was possible to undock an instrument panel, move it to a new position, resize it and then rightclick it to choose "lock window". But in V4.3 you get the corresponding menu only, whe...

Re: P3D v4 Black Flickering

Hi Brit128
As stated in the other thread concerning flickering: Switching on Vsynch reduces fps significantly. Each fps reduction reduces or stopps flickering. There must be another reason. Can you confirm, that Vsynch "on" reduces fps down to about 10 as it does on my place?
Best regards

Re: Main Screen blinks black every 10-15 seconds

Hi all I switched on Vsync, too, and the blackouts were gone. But I think this is due to the fact, that Vsync reduces the fps extremely (to about 10 fps on my place). So I think the real reason for disappearing blackouts are the reduced fps and not really the Vsync. Somehow it looks linear: less fps...

Re: Main Screen blinks black every 10-15 seconds

Just one more info: When I switch off the viewgroup, the system monitor gets stable immediately. So I think it cannot be an overheat or similar of the graphics card (GTX980ti). And it is very clear: with a 60fps limit the blackouts are reduced significantly. By the way, I have the impression that th...

Re: Main Screen blinks black every 10-15 seconds

I have the same problem here, but with a viewgroup setup. One system monitor with the docked P3D_V4.2 program on it, three monitors (TVs) in a viewgroup, undocked. On ground everything is ok. Once in the air, suddenly the system monitor starts with irregular blackouts. I tried then several new view ...

Brake information text in panel_only view

Hi Beau You proposed a very nice workaround to make an undocked viewgroup for my visual and an independent docked outside view on my system monitor by setting the viewgroup controlling window to "panel only". But there is a small malfunction: On the system monitor in "panel only" mode brake informat...
