Re: Improvements in VR for 4.2 - great progress!

Just for fun, try setting Single Pass mode and then exit. Then restart P3D and see if you see the same number of SIngle Pass artifacts and water reflection issues. I get more problems if I startup in Stereo mode ??

Re: P3Dv4.2 Single Pass VR Issues

@cannow, I read through that thread and added a request for all Vr folks to try your condition so L-M can reproduce it. Let's cancel this thread. Great work! Dave W. P.S. I see your artifacts (at least some of them and those at KSEA and KSAN - big flashes) but I have a third party scenery (Paulo Ric...

Re: P3Dv4.2 VR Single Pass Rendering Mode Issue

@cannow, Great work trying to isolate these issues with a fixed test case. Could you please repeat all the test condition items - and all of us VR folks will try it out and report back. If you can reduce the Graphic Settings to a minimum (but the artifacts are still there - that would be good) I thi...

Re: P3Dv4.2 Single Pass VR Issues

@VR folks,
If you notice a VR problem, make sure you try with and without single pass mode and then report if the issue is with both modes or just one of them.

Thanks

P3Dv4.2 Single Pass VR Issues

Personally, I haven't seen any problems with single pass rendering (Nvidia only) for VR - it gives me a little performance boost (I'm still held back by just a 4.2 Ghz CPU and a 1060 GPU). But I have read about some rendering issues - ranging from objects like high tension tower artifacts all the wa...

Re: Unable to install FSX-SP2-XPACK SimConnect with P3Dv4.2

Rob, NOTE: I am not using "Program Files" location for Prepar3D - just C:\P3Dv4 OK - I keep looking - I went to the Windows directory in a Folder called WinSxS\InstallTemp (I did a search for Simconnect.dll) and I found the elements of the attempts to install with SimConnect.msi : in C:\Windows\WinS...

Re: Unable to install FSX-SP2-XPACK SimConnect with P3Dv4.2

Rob,
I don't know where to look for the SimConnect.dll

BTW, I only have an Academic License anymore - any chance that is a SImConnect issue? I don't see a SimConnect.xml, DLL.xml or EXE.xml or SimConnect.ini ... in C:\Users\whita\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4

Re: Unable to install FSX-SP2-XPACK SimConnect with P3Dv4.2

Rob, I still can't install the SimConnect.msi - it errors out or just hangs. Do you know of any debugging concepts or log files that I could use to try to figure it out. Maybe I need to stop some processes (I turn off my Anti-virus for example) or clean my registry. I don't know what the install is ...

Re: Unable to install FSX-SP2-XPACK SimConnect with P3Dv4.2

Rob,
I tried installing msxml 4.0 - somebody said to try that - no joy.

I found that some others have had the same problem - no solution though:

Re: Unable to install FSX-SP2-XPACK SimConnect with P3Dv4.2

Rob, While I try to figure out this Error Message for installing SimConnect (BTW, none of the other Simconnect.msi's work either), I just want to thank your team for the latest v4.2 VR Single Pass ( and other items ) improvements. VR with medium object shadows, in Paulo Ricardo's Rio de Janiero is a...

Re: Unable to install FSX-SP2-XPACK SimConnect with P3Dv4.2

Still no luck - but the Windows Installer (with or without "Run as Administrator" ) now always gives that error: An error occurred during the installation of assembly Microsoft Flight Simulator SimConnect, version = 10.0.61.259.0 type = win32 processor architecture=x86 public key token = 67c7c14424d...

Re: Unable to install FSX-SP2-XPACK SimConnect with P3Dv4.2

Rob, Now after rebooting and making sure that it doesn't appear in the Installed list from the Control Panel, and running as Administrator in a CMD window and just executing simconnect.msi, it starts fine, doesn't provide an error, but just hangs with the progress bar at about 50% (for many minutes)...

Improvements in VR for 4.2 - great progress!

For those of us who are really excited by VR flight simulation, the Native mode VR improvements in P3Dv4.2 are very useful: 1) The reflection of sunlight on water is correct for stereo now and flying low over simulated waves is really fun 2) Supposedly - I haven't really verified it - the stereo for...
