Re: KERNELBASE.dll Crash

No, that’s NOT the end of the story...

Download the free Windows Repair tool. Find it at tweaking.com

That will fix Windows problems, and for me , eliminated the dreadful kernelbase crashes.

There is no need to completely reinstall Windows.

Re: P3Dv4 CTD frequently !!!!!!!

This is how I solved my kernelbase.dll crashes. Go to tweaking.com and download their windows repair tool. Let it run and correct your Windows 10 errors. This is much easier and quicker than resorting to a Windows reinstall. Usually not necessary. Once that is done, THEN move on to fixing / repairin...

Re: Starting Oculus Rift crashes P3Dv4.5

Continuing testing...I temporarily renamed p3d.cfg, scenery.cfg, removed add-ons. Started a flight with the PMDG 737 in stock scenery. When the flight starts, Oculus works fine. Then I disable VR as I normally do during cruise. Approaching the airport (about an hour later,) I try to re-enable VR / O...

Re: Starting Oculus Rift crashes P3Dv4.5

That is the exact same error I had yesterday... kernelbase.dll error. But I am running 419.67 driver, and can get those aircraft I mentioned earlier to work....

LM: What version of the nVidia driver do you recommend / used for your testing before release of 4.5 ?

cheers,

Re: Starting Oculus Rift crashes P3Dv4.5

It's not an Aerosoft problem as I don't have any. Mine crashes out even with the default F-22 Raptor and at the default Eglin AFB. If it won't work with the default there must be something wrong with P3DV4.5 Agree, but my reporting to Lockheed that certain a/c work while others do not may help trac...

Re: Starting Oculus Rift crashes P3Dv4.5

Same problem observed here. Prepar3d 4.5 crashes when enabling Oculus Rift, but only on certain aircraft. We are on Windows10 build 1809, intel 8700 CPU, and nVidia 1080Ti with very latest drivers v419.67. I also updated/reinstalled the Oculus software just to be sure. I updated to P3D v4.5 by unins...

Re: The Caribbean again...

Bert, The best way forward is to try to figure out which of the add-ons is causing the problem. I would suggest re-installing those add-ons, to ensure their files are placed correctly. Also, make sure your scenery library has things in the correct order. I'm fairly certain that replacing terrain.cfg...

Re: Quickest way of turning hyperthreading on/off

Yea, it can be a hot topic of debate and I have concluded that it really is machine / CPU specific. I say this because I've tested extensively with HT on , and then off, and for my machine, running P3D 4.4, ORBX, ASP4 etc etc, the performance of the sim is far smoother with HT turned OFF. Go over to...

Re: The Caribbean again...

Hi all, I don't use PILOT's but I do use Orbx and FlyTampa extensively, just FYI. This problem of black rectangles had appeared on my system and it was due to offending files from one of the addons, or a corrupt terrain.cfg. The easiest way to identify all of the files in use in any scenery area is ...

Re: P3Dv4.2 VR Single Pass Rendering Mode Issue

Tested with latest nVidia driver v 391.01. made no difference, the problem persists. I have noticed that this problem seems to be limited to when on an airport.... ie, slew to a downtown area and sit on the ground (Los Angeles, Honolulu, New York all tested) and there are no flashing artifacts, at l...

Re: P3Dv4.2 VR Single Pass Rendering Mode Issue

This issue persists after completely uninstalling 4.2 and starting from a clean state. I am running the latest Oculus runtime, and I have tested this with two different versions of the nVidia GeForce drivers (since Oculus suggested using driver version 388.59 to avoid performance issues), but this p...

Re: Improvements in VR for 4.2 - great progress!

Great comments and I agree, its a big improvement. However, I just reinstalled 4.2 to a completely clean state, since I thought I previously had done something to corrupt the view I see in VR : While taxiing at certain airports and set the VR mode to "Single Pass", then slowly move your head around....

Re: 16 or 32 RAM

Hi, I just finished building a very similar rig. I would suggest you start with 16GB, and get familiar with how the system overclocks, and ensure you get the DDR4 that the MOBO mfr states is compatible with the timings of your system. Ram is expensive right now, you can always add more sticks later....

Re: Flashing blocks over the ocean (again) P3D v4

Update : I have narrowed this down to a LOD radius issue. When this issue occurs, I can reset LOD down to "medium" and the flashing stops, and tiles load correctly. I can wait a few more minutes, then sneak back up to LOD "high" and seems to behave normally. At first I thought it might be a rogue ad...
