Re: V4.4 Visual anomalies through prop and when near ground

Do you see this effect on the monitor if you take the headset off and hold it in your hands? That might help rule out if its something happening in our scene render or in the SteamVR compositor.

Thanks

Re: V4.4 black screen after scenario start

Sorry you are still experiencing this. Can you provide more information about your computer, including the GPU model and driver number? Typically the screen is black for a few seconds on the first load while shaders compile. Parts of the shader compilation and creation process are carried out by the...

Re: View Group Managment question

The menu bar will always display on the main application window. You should just need to start with the app window placed on your center display. The view-group will change the view on that window based on the display is on. Try this: 1) Disable the view group 2) move the Prepar3D application window...

Re: P3D v4.4 PBR SDK

We will work on getting it updated. Supporting the development community is very important to us. We are excited to see what the community can do with PBR, and we want to make sure they have all the tools they need to get started.

Re: Content errors with Client only update

You may need to check with your add-on providers. Some add-ons are versoion-specific and/or have installers which modified files included in the Prepar3D client installer. You may also want to grab the updated content installer as well to get the most out of the new PBR support. This thread may be h...

Re: Autogen Delayed Loading

Photo scenery terrain textures load at full resolution now, and autogen models support PBR materials, but 4.4 doesn't include any major changes to how autogen loading works. We suggest tuning the autogen density and draw distance sliders to improve loading speeds.

Re: V4.4 black screen after scenario start

We will need some more specific information to help: Does this happen with default settings? Does this happen with any scenario? Does it always happen? Is it just after loading, or does it happen at startup with the default scenario? Which tips did you try? Have you gone through the general debuggin...

Re: P3DV4 File Structure

Our add-on system allows you to enable add-ons and scenery from anywhere on your system with the proper configuration. You may need to check with 3rd party developers though as many have their own installation process which may have additional limitations. Some 3rd party installers may assume Prepar...

Re: Undocking panels/displays in airplane to other monitors gives huge drop in FPS

This issue is usually resolved by disabling any streaming or recording features such as the win10 gaming bar and shadowplay. These driver or OS features for game streaming or recording seem to optimize for applications using a single window on one display. Also, you should not use SLI with Prepar3D ...

Re: Invisible F-16

The 4.3 client cannot display PBR-enabled model content. It sounds like maybe the update of content succeeded, but the update of the client did not. Perhaps you should uninstall and re-install the v4.4 client.

Re: 4.4 - mixed up ground textures

Are you seeing this on default settings as well? If you have the terrain LOD radius and texture resolution both maxed out, try lowering one of them. Also, please post your GPU model and driver version. Displaying the wrong texture can sometimes happen because of driver issues.

Re: Prepare 3D V4 not launching

Are you using v4.4? If not, please try updating as there are many fixes and improvements included. If you are still seeing this after update, you might want to follow the general debugging steps, then do a full install of v4.4.
