Re: P3D frame drop with Majestic Q400

No. I have posted the same issue on their unofficial avsim forum. Their official forum appears to have issues and it's not currently not possible to post on. I was hoping that maybe someone else had experienced a similar issue and found a resolution. It's not looking like it. EDIT - and typically, n...

Re: VR in 4.3 with ATC????

I don't want to switch my windows in english mode Well, if it's necessary to make significant changes to your OS, then I've got to say that I'm very surprised. I would have thought that just the addition of the English speech recogniser would do it. An extra step and hassle? Worth it? There are man...

P3D frame drop with Majestic Q400

I wonder if anyone has encountered the following: just sitting on the runway, when I look around the cockpit, intermittently, around every 5 seconds, the display will stall (i.e. stop moving for less than a second). This was actually happening to me with 4.2 recently, but I had been away from P3D fo...

Re: V4.3 VR

Thats exactly what I've done. SteamVR keeps loading That really is odd, the only thing I can think of (and it's a stretch) to suggest is that something in the Steam VR settings is not working quite as it should. On mine (developer settings section) I have start steam vr when an application starts -...

Re: V4.3 VR

Hello, You can see the controls for moving Instrument Panels in VR in our documentation here: https://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/prepar3d/views/virtual_reality.html Regards, Kayla Thanks Kayla. Also, now that zoom is avaiable in VR, the need for most of these panels is no longer as great for me. Though...

Re: VR in 4.3 with ATC????

I can't help with your problem, but I can offer an alternative. You may want to investigate VoxATC, which is far superior to the built-in ATC. As of 4.3 its panels are visible in VR. http://voxatc.com/ It's not perfect (I don't any product of this type ever will be). However, I've used it for years ...

Re: V4.3 VR

1) Another dumb question: Now you can use vehicle panels in VR. What does that mean, I do not understand, 2) in pmdg aircraft with oculus VR, is it possible in VR to click on display panels or fmc to Let them popup in popup windows just as it works when VR is not enabled or as it works in flyinside...

Re: V4.3 VR

Well, I have selected Oculus and it keeps launching SteamVR. I don't want SteamVR to be opened upon launch of P3D. That uses up resources for nothing. Fwiw, I did not see this behaviour. Steps New install of v.4.3 having completely removed all traces of previous version. Started Oculus Home manuall...

Re: V4.3 VR

"As of now, the only windows you can open in VR are Instrument Panels." Does that include the kneeboard? At the moment, it is just the Instrument Panels. Regards, Kayla Sorry if that seemed like the stupidest question ever asked, but I always thought that the kneeboard was treated as a panel. Oh we...

Re: V4.3 VR

I haven't tried it yet, just started downloading and it's going to be a while. But from what I've read so far, thank you so much for the VR improvements, they are very much appreciated.

Re: Improvements in VR for 4.2 - great progress!

I think the following functionality improvements are URGENTLY needed to make VR usable in practice: - a 'quick zoom' function, to be able to magnify e.g. small text on intruments - the ability to unbind the cursor from head motion (i.e. mouse only to move the cursor) - a kneeboard in VR for checklis...

Re: Scenario duplicated when saving? - v3

I think I've worked out the problem here. Sorry, but I've been wasting your time. Thank you for taking an interest, nonetheless. It appears that this happens only when I save scenearios with the Majestic Q400 (it's the only aircraft I use, it didn't click with me that this could be the issue). Using...

Re: Scenario duplicated when saving?

A screenshot of what you see would help.
I would've done this already, but there appears to be no way to upload images to this forum.

Re: Scenario duplicated when saving?

The "duplicate" file name is actually "File Name..FLT" when I select the scenario and look at its details.
The "proper" scenario file is "File Name.fxml".
