You are most welcome.

BTW, if you use FSUIPC it has specific calls to send the menu selections for these menus, without the need for the menu to have the focus...

None that I know of other than hoping it’s in the next release. Haven’t heard a peep.

If you have no SinglePass line in your xml then it is not enabled. It only gets inserted when you enable SinglePass the first time.

Re: CTD d3d12.dll when i use my viewgroup (5 Monitors)

Doc4711.... 737SimGuy....How do I ensure I'm not using "single pass"? With P3D closed, open your ViewGroups.xml file into a text editor. Look for this line in each of the ViewGroups you have: <SinglePass>False</SinglePass> If it says True then change to False as above. Save the file.

Re: CTD d3d12.dll when i use my viewgroup (5 Monitors)

Hi, I am using ViewGroups with three monitors on 5.1hf1 with no issues unless I try to use Singl Pass then it locks up. One thing I recommend is backing up then deleting your ViewGroups xml file and then let P3D generate a new one. The header has changed a little in the new one, no idea if that even...

Re: "SinglePass" causes lockups and black screen in 5.1

Similar here James. Before this HF1 release it didn't lock up, but came up with black screens. With HF1 it was encouraging in that, having set SinglePass 'true' in the XML before starting P3D, it did boot up into my default flight okay. But as soon as I loaded another flight it locked up solid with...

Re: "SinglePass" causes lockups and black screen in 5.1

I use the following workaround if P3D starts with a 'Black Screen' in SinglePass mode: - Open the ViewGroup Manager and uncheck the SinglePass mode - Close the ViewGroup Manager (no Black Screen anymore) - Open the ViewGroup Manger again and select the SinglePass mode - Close the ViewGroup Manger (...

Re: "SinglePass" causes lockups and black screen in 5.1

Hi, Updated to 5.1hf1 and sadly SinglePass still locks up P3D. It must be something odd in my setup and I'd love to work you guys (LM) to troubleshoot this, as it would certainly be a benefit to many multi-monitor users. So if there is any info or testing I can provide to help please let me know. Re...

Re: "SinglePass" causes lockups and black screen in 5.1

Sorry about the disconnect there with the wording in what's new. This probably should have been labeled beta/experimental. We weren't intending to oversell the feature. What's new line items are often pulled form ticket/issue names. This was something we could develop quickly leveraging some recent...

Re: [SOLVED] Re: P3D V5 (DXGI_ERROR__DEVICE _HUNG) Eerror

I find that even with the allowance of a delay, there are certain airports or 3rd party addons that still push the limits of memory and gpu usage in 5.0/5.1..... what settings do you have please in the p3d menu? Do you get this hung error at particular airports? Like ones that are not maybe either ...

Re: 5.1 SimConnect menu not responding to keypress

This appears to be a window focus issue. For me when the menu pops up the keypress will not affect it, but if I click on the menu window to give it the focus then the keypresses work.
