nVidia Surround - Config issues?

Anyone using 3 monitors with P3D v4.4 have a stable system? Ive tried with and without surround applied and still get P3D 4.4 crashes (Silent) which I've narrowed down to either WIN10 handling of odd sized windows (using ALT ENTER) or some sort of conflict with C++ Redistributable 2015/17. This is b...

Re: saitek hardware

I've had multiple ongoing issues with SAITEK calibration in conflict with P3D control menu calibration. the X-56 calibration seems to get lost and I have to redo it anytime I shut down the computer between running P3D v4.4 I think it is related but so far cannot get to the bottom of it. Have you tri...

Re: 4.4 Fails to Start "correctly"

This turned out to be C++ Redistributable 2017 missing . . once installed it launched fine. THis closes this issue but P3D v4.4 still FREEZES and crashes after about 20 min use. THis is being dealt with in another client application thread . . so this is closed

Re: Sunrise/sunset performance worse than ever

Been running P3D since v2 and with a i7-4790K at 4.0Ghz and GTX980 I've never experienced fps loss at sunrise/set . . not even a bit. . . so I suspect it may be in shaders or HDR settings perhaps. I've learned a lot about settings like shadows and anti-aliasing can also take a toll but only under ce...

Re: 4.4 Fails to Start "correctly"

Also to note . . P3D v3.4 also on same computer same SSD drive works fine. Is it just a matter of just reinstalling the CLIENT?

[RESOLVED] 4.4 Fails to Start "correctly"

P3D 4.4 kept crashing after 20-30 min using some addon aircraft. (it's not the addons) . . .I've narrowed it down to OS, C++ Redist, Display and other Drivers, .NET and more. Not very narrow! . . . so after scrubbing drivers and all unnecessary Registry bits I completely reinstalled WIN 10 (with MSF...

Re: P3D 4.4 FREEZE CRASH

This is a followup to the OPEN ticket about my crashing P3D libcef.dll issue. Definitely C++ Redist 2015 issue was involved and clearly a Microsoft BUG . . . but there is another called 1534 UserProfile Warning! . . I have flown successfully now for a few hours with no P3D Crash and no more referenc...

Re: P3D 4.4 FREEZE CRASH

Further investigation pulled up this WINDOW ERROR REPORT file ReportP3DCrash20-840am.wer . . . . the contents of which is below. I suspect the OS may have been the instigator not P3D itself so I'm also asking MSFT if they know anything. Prior to these crashes there always seems to be a series of WAR...

Re: SDK FXTool window won't focus - SOLVED

No one else seems to have this issue but in case you do . .. it's related to spanning multiple displays with the "surround" feature on the NVIDIA Control Panel. Turns out without surround configured as a single panel, P3D does not know where to show the FX Tool window and leaves it hidden even thoug...
