Re: 1338 Posts about hung dxg.dll + One more

Gentlemen, I have made TDR Settings in the registry. But, that now means the sim freezes for 60 seconds before the dxgi screen comes up. As for overclocking, not my thing...have never done it, don't expect to in the future... One other thought...tho probably will make no difference. when running eve...

Re: 1338 Posts about hung dxg.dll + One more

Thanks, Jorgen and Martyson for your observations...I am certain my FTX 760 is not overclocked. I have checked that in the BIOS as well as with software. I am updated to the latest W10 Pro 2004. DXdiag shows all functions working normally. One suggestion from a knowledgeable friend, I have set every...

Re: 1338 Posts about hung dxg.dll + One more

Caught in a typo. The second Folder is SysWow64. Thanks for the heads up. Meantime, since my response earlier this morning, I have moved my 2nd monitor from the Intel i5 to the GTX 760 using a DVI-I connection. On a test flight a few minutes ago, the dxgi error came up again...I am wondering if it i...

1338 Posts about hung dxg.dll + One more

Obviously this is a major problem that still seems to remain unsolved. After reading another forum recently https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-fix-dxgi-dll-not-found-or-missing-errors-2623370 I began thinking about how many dxg.dll files are actually on my computer. I found 2 One in Windows/System32 wh...

SELF ANSWERED :UPGRADING CLIENT WITHOUT CONTENT OR SCENERY CHANGE

POST IS MOOT...FOUND ANSWER....MODS, PLEASE DELETE IF YOU CAN. THANKS Hi all, I recently discovered that I had not upgraded from V4.5 series 97 to series 98.

No splash screen for Tongass Fjiords

hi all, I have installed TF in P3D V4.5 HF3 following Poppet's guide at Avsim to the letter. However, I have not gotten the opening options screen, nor are there any presets for positioning my aircraft in the Scenarios file. I had TF installed in my first P3D, but have only reinstalled it now in the...

Re: Horrible Stutters on v4.5 H3

As we know, one size does not fit all. Nevertheless, these are the settings I used to cure the stutter issue. So far, so good.

Re: P3D v4.5 Hotfix 1 - 2 - 3 ?

go to the Downloads link, click on your account info, and that will take you to all of your available downloads. You will find hf 3 in that list. I have installed it, but so far have not noticed anything really different. I think the biggest changes affect people who use VR...I am not among them... ...

HOTFIX 3 FOR V4.5

I have just installed this using the client only....and have not yet had a chance to fly with it. Do I infer correctly that the major changes here affect VR? I am not set up for that....so, is there any other benefit or difference which I should look our for or be aware of....thanks...

Hi all,

I am not a techie, simply a more or less informed and curious sim enthusiast. I do no programming. But, I want to know whether the SDK should be downloaded as part of some operations within P3D. Thanks...

Re: [P3Dv4.5HF2] DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG

Sherm, This Intel GPU is totally unsuited for simulation purposes. I don't know if you have tried this: in nVidia Control Panel (I believe that's where it is) set it to always use "High-performance graphics adapter) - wording may be different, I am going off my memory, and also run the second monit...

Re: [P3Dv4.5HF2] DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG

Hi Vaughn, Sorry for not not keeping up on this thread with replies, etc. I put together my current box about four years ago. The guts are an Asus 97-A mobo, with 16 gigs of Corsair Ram, Nvidia GTX 760 card, and a built in on the mobo Intel I5 4600 GPU. Since my post earlier this week, I have had tw...
