WIndows 10 and P3d 2.4

Recommended Posts

SMH im fixing to rage I installed windows 10 fresh and clean. Went and installed p3d 2.4 and all went well. ITs in its own folder in the c drive. I load up in the default f16 and whatever airport it loads up in. It looks like this http://prntscr.com/7yq1im. It loads then freezes and then closes with no error in the event log. Do i need to get p3d 2.5? i tried everything out of option here.

Why 2.4 and not 2.5 when you clean-installed ?
I'ts the same amount of job and a newer and perhaps better version?

Looks like a driver error relating to the GPU, although it's odd it doesn't trigger an error message. 353.62 is the WHQL driver to use if you actually have an Nvidia card, and you need to provide system specs for problems like this.

The fun is going to be when Windows 10 decides you need a new video driver and installs it in the middle of the night without you knowing about it.

But we will, when in the next session we get an increase in FPS of 20, and AA finally works, and.... Whow!  There was an update!

Already reading complaints on Facebook about having to reinstall P3D,  the joystick disconnecting after 10 minutes with Windows 10 and P3D requiring a new registration, and crashes during P3D startup,  and this is only the first day  :rolleyes:

There is a download tool available from Windows to prevent this. People raged when their drivers got auto updated, and Microsoft actually listened.

Wow. Been using win 10 for three weeks and it actually FIXED my disappearing joystick that win 8.1 broke. I've had absolutely no problems with p3d 2.5 and win10, except that stupid driver push.

If you were using it for the last three weeks you were most likely using a beta.

I was absolutely using a beta. Build 10240 was the pre release rtm build, so "theoretically" :) all should be the same as full rtm. When new Beta builds were installed I had no license problems, hope I still don't!

Anyone having reports of performance vs w7 or 8.1?

 

Thanks Michael Moe

I've been on windows 10 and P3D for a few months now. Some driver glitches at first but now with the latest nvidia update. SLI is working as it should finally and my frame rate has almost doubled.

That sounds amazing. No issues with SLI at all? Those New drivers 353.62 also have the known issue in w7

No, none at all. and I'm getting 70-100% usage out of both GPUs. B4 latest update I was getting max 50% usage spread over both GPU.

Interesting independent test of graphic performance vis-a-vis 8.1 and Win 10

 

http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/windows-8-1-vs-10-graphics-performance-review%2c1.html

 

OK, it's not P3D specifically, but the conclusions should probably be borne in mind as it matches my experiences with W10 and the sim - no significant gains or losses.

 

Summary at this early point in release: No point for Win 10 until DX12, or driver advances - but it does no harm.

That's about what everyone expected. Win 10 is just Win 8.1 with a different interface. Until apps take advantage of DX12, there's not likely to be any performance boosts.

And the 99€-question is...Will P3D Ver 3.0 take the DX12 advantage ?

I would expect changing the OS to an updated version to cause any performance increase in a sim program. Not surprised at all.
