4.3 HUD issues - blanks out on landings on some aircraft

Postby sfm50 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 1:59 pm

After installing P3DV4.3 the HUD kind of blanks out on landings and then comes back to normal a few seconds later. This happens on some aircraft like the F-22 that comes with P3D.

Is the Z-write system usually used by HUDs broke in 4.3 ? Someone told me on another forum discussing P3DV4.3 that it was mentioned on LM beta testing forum and was going to be fixed.

I checked the HUD in P3D 3.4 and it was fine. I re-installed P3D V4.2 and no issues with the HUD on P3DV4.2 either.

Thanks

At what point does the HUD blink out?
Is it always the same point?
Does it happen on each landing?

It seems to happen on touchdowns, the hud blanks out a bit and then goes back to normal a few seconds later.

Does NOT happen on P3D 3.4, 4.0, 4.2... Only 4.3

I just tested.
No problems with the default F22 HUD.

Also, previous (yesterday and previous days) carrier OPS with the VRS FA18E (beta for P3Dv4.3) no problems with the HUD.

I'll probably need to make a video (and maybe pause the sim when it occurs) as happens quickly and could be hard to notice.

What are your PC system specs?
How many monitors are you using?
Other support hardware / software?
Are you testing in a default P3D state ... without add-ons?

Any Viewing (change views) software in use?

Could you provide a link?

With the F-16 it happens as soon as you touch down.
On the F-16 not the entire HUD blanks out, only the part below the horizon.
So if you touch down on the mains and keep the nose up, you might not even notice it.
But as soon as you lower the nose onto the runway the lower part of the HUD data starts to vanish.
1 Monitor, no add-ons.

A video would be helpful to show your HUD problem.


You later mentioned:
"On the F-16 not the entire HUD blanks out, only the part below the horizon."

Ok, the HUD does not blank out on landings.

Edit:
You mentioned:
"I checked the HUD in P3D 3.4 and it was fine. I re-installed P3D V4.2 and no issues with the HUD on P3DV4.2 either."

Did you do screenshots (or video) to show the HUD on landing?

??? What else would you call it when 99% of the HUD data disappears?
