P3D v2.5 sometimes starts up with a black blank screen

Recommended Posts

I recently started fresh on a clean windows 10 x64 install.. at this point i just have fs 2010 and fs ultimate installed, along with some a2a planes and accu-sim.. rex 4 overdrive and rex texture direct are installed, but not active yet, as well as active sky next (though not running either).. so in just loading the default flight.. occasionally all i get is a black screen.. if i load a previously saved flight in the same session its the same.  Often all i need do is close p3d and reopen then no black screen on the second try.. im running an nvidia 780ti with the 10.18.13.5362 driver.

 

I looked around on here saw some references to this but not exactly the same..

 

I had this occur with 2.5 and now with 2.5 hotfix.. i also have fsuipc installed.. has anyone ran into this and fixed it?

 

Thanks

Yes, by using a supported OS like W7.  Right now W10 is a crapshoot - works fine (for now) for some and not for others. You are in uncharted territory as ANY software or hardware incompatibility can bite you without warning OR explanation.

Try alt enter to exit full screen and then go back to full screen. Works for me on the rare occasions it has happened.

Update to 355.60 drivers and cleanse the Shader cache. Bet you have a large number of files in there !

 

On next boot you will have to wait about 20-30 seconds as the shaders recompile before the screen is populated, but after that you should be back to normal.

So far it hasnt happened again, since updating the nvidia drivers.. windows 10 and p3d are running smooth as well.
