Re: Post 4.5 Hotfix install Very Long Load Times

On my machine, the pause between 70%-80% began once I disabled some ORBX files to completely remove their night lighting. I have not tested adding them back to see if it goes away. My main concern is not with that period of loading, but the very long time it takes to get to even see the progress bar...

Re: Post 4.5 Hotfix install Very Long Load Times

I have this problem as well. Setting to medium only reduces the effect on loading but still takes a long time. Removing scenery layers that are library object based as Chris Bell describes removes the load delay entirely.

Re: HMD menu toggle button still doesn't work in 4.5

I have the same VR headset and I am unable to see any menus in VR at all. Not even 2D popup windows from various aircraft. And for those windows that use simconnect (GSX, etc.) if I do happen to get it to show, I cannot interact with them.

Re: Frame issues in Prepar3D v4.5

Hi Rob, From another thread at Orbx I have understood that loading while flying has improved but the first time the Sim is loaded will take longer. Also more memory is being used now That is no problem as I have memory enough. At Schiphol , after the scenery has been loaded it now can take up to 1 ...

Re: VR in 4.3 with ATC????

Seems that anything with popup menus are also unusable. For instance, opening the GSX control menu or the SODE control menu for jetbridges. We have to exit VR mode to access the menus.

Re: Supported VR Headsets

Well, I uninstalled the headset and drivers as well as the HoloLens from the device manager. I rebooted and plugged it back in. It is now working in P3D properly over multiple P3D loads as well as with a reboot in between on different PMDG aircraft. Something may have been screwed up in the USB inst...

Re: Supported VR Headsets

Hi Brian, I did nothing different the next time. P3D was just closed and reopened a few hours later. The only thing that may have happened is that the HMD headset may have went into sleep mode during the first run in VR. When that happens, SteamVR closes. I do not know if that would cause changes in...

Re: Supported VR Headsets

Hey guys, So I built a new rig and did a fresh install of everything on this brand new computer. After entering VR for the first time in the PMDG 777, it worked exactly as I expect it to, meaning I had full lateral movement in the cockpit. I was able to "lean in" to a panel to see it closer and if I...

Re: P3Dv4.2 Single Pass VR Issues

I get a ton of artifacts in single pass that do not show up without single pass. The jetways flicker, random scenery parts show up and flicker in and out. Ground scenery tiles show the wrong textures. Its weird, but the performance is better.

Re: Supported VR Headsets

Just to add, i do have lateral movement with respect to the external environment. I do not have lateral movement from within the cockpit environment. So if I move my head to the left, my viewpoint of outside shifts left as expected. However, the cockpit view remains fixed within it, so the entire co...

Re: Supported VR Headsets

I only use the headset for P3D. What other apps should I try?

Note: I am using this with PMDG aircraft. Haven't tried in default aircraft.

Any recommendations on settings to prevent the intermittent blank screens? It happens most on landing which has been a PITA!

Re: Supported VR Headsets

I am able to successfully use the Samsung Odyssey HMD in P3D v4.2 with SteamVR. Works pretty well. One question, is the viewpoint when in VR mode supposed to be locked? When I move my head forward or to the side, I would want my view to shift with the movement as if I was going in for a closer look....

[P3D v4] No Autogen and blurry ground textures at arrival airport

Hi everyone, There was a thread on this but it was locked. Restarting the topic since I am having similar issues. On departure, everything looks beautiful as it was freshly loaded. All autogen available, textures sharp on the ground. However as I approach my destination and descend, the region of my...
