Severe Visual Problems

Postby sleddriver » Tue Aug 06, 2019 4:22 pm

I'm having a problem with light flashes in P3D. I'm using P3D V4.5 with the hotfix. I'm getting really weird flashes all over my screen whenever I load up any scenery. Doesn't matter the time of day, which aircraft I'm using or the weather. I've tried the Chaseplane fix as per the FAQ's, but this didn't change anything. I've tried updating Windows and all of my drivers, but no change. I've tried un-installing and re-installing the P3D Client, Content and Scenery downloads, no change. I've added links to my videos to showcase these issues; hopefully they work so you can see what I'm talking about. First is MSP, then PHX and finally SFO.

MSP: https://youtu.be/cni08Qpy118
PHX: https://youtu.be/AsM4yX3ddvM
SFO: https://youtu.be/cnJq-5fewPA

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello sleddriver,

Have you taken a look at out general debugging tips? I think that deleting your generated files (step 5) may help.

If the steps in there do not work can you provide us more info on your setup? Do you have any add-ons? What OS/Graphics card are you using?

Thanks!
Natasha

I apologize. I should have mentioned, I tried these steps and also deleting my shaders. My OS is Windows 10. Graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, with up to date drivers. I have most addons: FTX Base and Global, Flightbeam, FSDreamteam, FlyTampa, PMDG and FSLabs.

Does anyone have any clue on what may be causing this and what I can do to fix it?

If you have an old video card or yourr system has integrated video , use that and test to eliminate the Video card failure , it looks like that to me...

Hi There,

It looks like a faulty video card or video cable, try re-siting your video card, then check your video cable connections.

If this fails, let me know and we can debug further.

Try right clicking on the P3D Icon, click on properties then compatibility's and check the box that says "disable fullscreen optimizations" click apply and see if that works. It did for me.

So, my video card is fine, and I tried disabling Fullscreen Optimizations. Nothing is working. I'm losing my mind here. Does anyone at LM have any ideas?
