For those with VAS/OOM issues

Recommended Posts

We were given a new 22KHz soundset to test that you will be able to enable in the Operations Center.

I finished testing it and I did notice a 3-4% decrease in total VAS usage on two identical flights.

 

Keep in mind my system never experiences OOM or VAS errors because I've tuned FSX correctly according to my hardware, but even so I did see a difference.

Simmers with lower end hardware that frequently experience these types of issues should see a much more noticeable difference.

 

There is a slightly noticeable difference between the quality of the stock and 22KHz soundsets. At a lower bitrate the 22KHz set has a more tinny, higher pitched effect on all the sounds.

It definitely didn't detract from the quality of the sim, but for those that don't need the extra VAS % you should stick with the stock sounds because they do sound a bit richer.

 

And no...I have no idea when this will release. Don't even ask.

Will this feature come with SP1?

With reduced VAS usage, are you able to exit from the FSX main menu without crashing FSX?

1. Yes.

2. I never crash on exiting FSX, not since deleting FSINN.

What's FSINN and where do you delete it?

If you don't know what it is, you probably don't have it installed..

I use vPilot on a networked PC

 

I switched a couple weeks ago.  Will never look back.  The TrafficProxy smoothing for networked situations is epic.  Looks SO much better!

What do you use instead of FSINN? Squawk box?

 

vPilot networked. So clean and hassle free. FSINN is forever banned from my pc.

Silly question... If im using vPilot, I don't need FSInn? What about those 6 lights on the right hand bottem part of the screen. I was under the impression that, that software was used to connect your client to your sim.

 

Basically, if I have vPilot, is that all I need?

 

Thanks!

Sounds interesting...could I configure it to see AI contrails in flight like in FSINN?

Please elaborate - I still have choppy traffic at this point. Cheers.

I had this problem as well, reported it to PMDG, but they were aware of it already.

 

At that point they did not know what caused it (dont know if they can fix it as it could be an FSX problem).

 

After I installed FSUIPC I never had that problem again!

I have the registered version, but I think the free version should do the trick as well.

 

Do you have FSUIPC installed?

The first install I had FSUIPC installed which I subsequently removed, but the problem persisted.  Then I re-installed FSX and PMDG a second time with a new computer, and the problem is still with me.

Traffic Proxy is a program that should be run when using a networked config.  Install vPilot on BOTH machines.  When ready to fly, start Traffic Proxy on the FSX computer.  Start FSX (order doesn't matter, but my comp freaks out when I try to start programs after FSX sometimes).  Start vPilot on the other computer.  You should now have smoother traffic in your sim.

Thanks Kyle, will try that later. I am pretty sure I read the Vpilot documentation and they just said it would be "fixed" in a later version, and so thought nothing of it.

 

Cheers for the help.

But without FSUIPC now, correct?

 

I would at least give FSUIPC a chance.......it is known for preventing some FSX crashes.

 

Another solution (PMDG offered that to me and it worked also) is by not exiting FSX from the menu. Instead, just close FSX directly from the flight (so without escaping back to the FSX main menu first).

 

If it does not help then you need to start getting rid of addons untill the problem stops.

 

And if you do a reinstall, I recommend a format of your harddisc and a new Win7 and FSX install.....otherwise you can never be sure the problem remains inside windows or not.

Just uninstalling FSX for example does not get rid of all FSX files and registry entries. And thus you have a good chance of the problem still being there (in the undeleted items) when you reinstall FSX.

Same with the PMDG777,....if you uninstall it, some things stay in your OS. Like yourPMDG777 key for example. Which is nice....so you can just reinstall the PMDG again without the requirement of getting a new key......but it is also not nice if you had problems, as it prooves that not everything is deleted by a simple uninstall - reinstall!

 

Oh....if you do reinstall Windows...then first release your PMDG777 key via the FMC menu!

This way you can use it a second time on your new Win7 installation.

Yes

I shall install SP1 and test if this problem is resolved.

Yes, I did all the above b/c I re-installed Win 7 64-bit on an SSD drive, hence all the FSX and PMDG registry settings were wiped.

Yep, this is my only workaround for now.

After installing SP1, I'm able to exit from the FSX main menu gracefully :)

 

Now, I just need to find the thread that explained how to assign some panel views to the F9 & F10 keys ...

As for OOMs, 4096 textures do make a difference, right?

What if I just reduce to 2048 within FSX.CFG and not change/downsize the textures at all, does it reduce the issue or makes no difference at all?

 

Thanks!
