Re: Accidentally deleted c:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin ... help?

Have you tried running a repair on the Client?

Re: FPS and Sound Settings

This is kind of a shot in the dark, but if you have an Nvidia card there were reports in the past that the Nvidia HD Audio caused performance issues on some systems. If you have a monitor with speakers connected via HDMI then that is likely your Windows Default Primary Playback device. When you chan...

Re: Saitek X-55 HOTAS set up in P3Dv4.3

The X-55 doesn't use the Z-axis for throttle. It uses the X axis for throttle 1 (the left one) and the Y axis for throttle 2 (the right one). Try mapping it that way and let us know if it makes a difference.

Re: What is the "correct" method for scenery installs?

Not only are those methods considered "acceptable", they are the preferred method for add-on installation. And there are considerable advantages for doing it that way. One of which, at least for me, is that when P3D needs to be uninstalled for an upgrade I don't have to reinstall any of my addons. M...

Re: How to remove default planes in V4.3?

I assume you mean you want to remove the default AI traffic. On my system the trafficAircraft.bgl file is in C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Scenery\World\scenery

Re: p3d 4.3 single pass VR random texture tiles loading

I normally hate "me too" posts, but me too. ;) I use a lot of MegaScenery Earth photo scenery and in places where I want more detail I make my own. I found that when I disabled the scenery that I created I didn't have the problem so I blamed it on that. But now I'm starting to think that there is so...

Re: Upgraded to 4.3 but wrong ver number on Help/About

The usual cause for what you're seeing is that you didn't uninstall the old version before you installed the new version. Try uninstalling the Client then installing the new Client.

Re: P3D v4.3 preformance

This may sound counterproductive, but I read a post here recently where someone backed off their overclocking a bit an there was a significant improvement. In that posted particular case he was just over the edge of processor stability and by reducing his overclock by .2 he had better results. Try l...

Hacklib::initContactPointsOffsets() - Unsupported Prepar3D version

Do you happen to have the FSLabs A320 installed? That has been know to cause the error you are receiving. See this post: viewtopic.php?f=6322&t=130019&hilit=hacklib

Re: OK to update from v4 to 4.3 without interim point updates?

You can go directly to 4.3. Since you have to uninstall, as a minimum, your existing P3D client and then install the new client it pretty much like a fresh install. Same with Content and Scenery. You have to uninstall before you install the new one.

Re: P3D v3 and P3D v4

Yes, you can have both v3 and v4 installed on the same machine. They load into separate directories and you also have separate licenses.

Re: content!!!

On your Download page there is a line that says Individual Component Downloads. Click the + sign and it will list the components. If you don't already have them, download the Install_Content.msi, cont1.cab and cont2.cab files. Place them all in the same folder then run the Install_Content.msi file. ...

Re: Prepar3D v4

You're going to have to be a lot more specific about what you mean by "doesn't boot anymore". What exactly is happening, and when? Are there any error messages? What specific version of P3D are you running? Have you upgraded recently?

Re: Clueless in PA!

No matter how far you have your slider to the right, you can only display as much detail as what is in the original source file. You can't display what isn't there. However, you can do the reverse. You might have some 30cm/pixel scenery installed but if your system doesn't have the horsepower to dis...
