Error One is Greater than Zero

Post by jetpilot1980 »

Hello,

A couple of weeks ago I had my windows 10 wiped after a brownout from a thunderstorm... I am back up and running now; however, I have been getting a strange error message every time I start prepar3d (V4.5 HF3) a small dialogue box pops up that says "Error 1.0000000000000 is greater than 0.0000000000000" and the option to click "ok". It seems relatively benign in that once I click ok P3D loads normally; but wondering what could be causing this error or what should I be looking for? I looked in windows event viewer and there is nothing out of the ordinary while I see a list of content errors is there some specific type of p3d content error I should look for in the file? Thanks

Did you do an Uninstall of P3D then a fresh P3D download / install of P3D?

Do you currently have Add-ons installed?

I did do a partial un-install and re-install of the client, content, and scenery, but did not do a clean wipe as you mentioned I do have quite a bit of add-ons and have no desire to start completely from scratch. I actually keep my P3d installation on a separate e: drive so while Windows got wiped my P3D install was mostly intact... I do see this is often related to an issue with a .fx just wondering in the content errors file where it states:

[error.XX]
error=
File:
Section:
Key:

Is there a specific value I should be looking for to pin point the problem? Thanks

The .fx files are effect files, is it always the same file that is referenced?

You might be missing one or more files, or maybe also have files that are incompatible with your P3D version.

That's the issue, yes I know what .fx files are but it does not say which specific one... So the question becomes is there an error=value or key= value that will isolate the specific problem file(s)...

In your effects folder, do a list by date.
You will see all last modifications on your effects files.

So after a bit of time pulling out effects and isolating them based on recently installed... I finally found the culprits they were in my P3D add-ons folder under the AFLT add-on. The offending files were:

BaseEffect.fx
BaseEffect_Mipped.fx

@ jetpilot1980 ,

As I had previously asked:
Do you currently have Add-ons installed?

Glad to hear you found the Add-on with the problem.
