is SDK download necessary?

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

Has anyone investigated whether the HTML Shaders may be part of the issue? I cannot say there is a noticeable pattern on my system, but from time to time, I do change shaders via PTA.

Jorgen and all,

Excellent point about not keeping case on the floor. I keep mine on my desk, which happens to be a large wrap around build in, inherited when we bought the house....:-)....

Re: Scenery.cfg corrupt?

When you disable an existing scenery.cfg, P3D simply rebuilds your default scenery. It does NOT include any add on scenery. For that, you will have to reinstall any add ons. You can do that from within the sim library section. Or use the very popular Lorby Add On Organizer. It is freeware and can be...

Re: [P3Dv4.5HF2] DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG

Hi all, This problem has been lingering for a very long time and there is another post on this topic with an answer that in part worked for me. I say "in part", because the solution also requires a clean video card with all dust bunnies cleared away. turn off all power, unplug the case and open it. ...
