[RESOLVED] P3D 4.2 Hang/CRASH

I have a fair bit of experience with P3D Crashing and can usually pin it down to third party conflicts. This morning P3D Hung for a few seconds and then crashed. Flying F-35 with Skyforce 3D weather engine running and ORBX N America loaded. I have never had this happen except when running Skyforce 3...

P3D 4.1 CRASH when moving any window

Not sure if this is related to the WIN10 update in early Dec but it sure seems so. P3D seems to operate fine with stock aircraft but any (and it seems every Addon aircraft) will crash the sim with any attempt to Resize or move a window. The crash is initiated on "mouse UP" it seems because when the ...

New C: Drive Reinstall leaves Remnants - What Now!

I found end of year was a good time to totally rebuild my P3Dv4.1 in a new 1T Sanyo SSD. So I backed up all my scenery Aircraft and configs. . . cloned my WIN10 Pro OS and recovered it to the BLANK formatted 1T SSD. I reinstalled P3D v1.4 and the matching SDK . . tried a few of my Special effects wi...

WIN 10 Corruption lost all P3D Settings

I had a problem with WIN10 Automatic UPDATE where moving or resizing a window caused P3D app to crash. Thanks MS. The kind folks at Microsoft "refreshed the OS" remotely and guaranteed none of my files would be touched so everything was going to be wonderful. In fact, the refresh DID fix the crashin...

Re: Tools to graph Frame Rates

Hi Pete . . just JAB_FPSx and found it perfect for what I'm trying to do. I already had FSUIPC4 I found and I experimented a bit with logging to CSV as you suggested but found it too cumbersome to get a realtime look at fps without a lot of programming . . which I have not done for years so will sti...

Tools to graph Frame Rates

Anyone know of a tool or gauge that can chart the fps parameter or send it to a text file instead of the screen for charting in excel? I'm studying the performance of Special Effects and I can watch this happen with SHIFT Z but I want to see more detailed resolution during the execution of various e...

Re: P3Dv4.1 FX Tool Not displaying Effect - Sound very quiet

Finally got my P3D v3.4 SDK working again and fx display properly with full sound. . . so something is different in v4.1. Even 4.1 fx loaded directly from the 4.1 effects folder do not display so it cannot be the fx itself but rather some other parameter or setting . . sound is very muted but it;s t...

I have built many explosion and exhaust effects in FSX P3D v2.5 and 3.4. I have now upgrade to v4.1 and while the FX tool can load any effect, hitting "Do Effect" does nothing (shows no effect) but it does play whatever wav is part of that effect at a very low volume that I cannot increase even with...
