Display Error on Free Flight Screen

Recommended Posts

When I load the 747 V3 the front half of the aircraft is a skeleton. The skin is missing from the wings forward. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling no change. Running FSX Steam, System is i7-4820, 16 Gigs of memory, Geforce 1070 with latest drivers. My PMDG 777 and 737 display correctly as well as all other 3rd party aircraft. Re-down loaded the 747and reinstalled, validated my Steam install, deleted the config file so it would be rebuilt. What am I missing?

Look in our intro document, it will explain why and what you need to to to fix it. Honestly there is nothing wrong with the plane, this is an issue of FSX. Once you launch into the sim, the airplane will be fine! Go ahead, launch into the sim and see.. its fine! :-)

Didn't say there was anything wrong with the aircraft. I did read the documentation and followed all the recommendations, but still the skin of the aircraft is missing from the leading edge of the wings forward, only see the interior. Hence the question "what am I missing?" I am running Windows 7 64bit. I've been so focused on the free flight screen issue that I hadn't tried to fly the aircraft. Now when I try to fly I get an OOM when the flight loads. Forgot to add this is on a new reinstall of Windows and FSX Steam.

FSX:SE includes the disablepreload by default, which is why we mentioned it in the intro. What are your system specs? On a reasonably fast computer, it should only show like that for a moment or two.

 

An OOM as soon as the flight loads points to other VAS issues (scenery, in particular). What other add-ons are you using?

System spec i-7-4820K @ 3.70GHz 16.0 GB memory Nvidia Geforce 1070 with newest drivers Windows 7 64Bit. Add-on are Orbx FTX Global base pack openLC North America, Vector, EU England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Norway, Scotland, Wales, Na Cental Rockies,Northern Rockies,  Northern Cal,Southern Cal, Pacific Fjords,Southern Alaska, Pacific Northwest plus multiple airports by Orbx, Aerosoft US Cities Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angles, and Cleveland. AIrports by Flight Beam and FS Dream Team along with multiple 3rd party aircraft. Everything was working until I installed the 747. Again not saying there is something wrong with it, but something has changed since the install. I am just at a loss as to what. 777 and 737 working fine Just the 747 giving me grief.

One thing that is becoming a standard troubleshooting step in my list of things to do (especially after a new add-on install and having odd graphics issues) is to clear the shader folder.

 

Have you tried that yet?

Sounds like it may be the new drivers. You may want to look in the crash logs to see where the faulting module is.

It's a windows function, but it depends on your OS Version.

 

Windows 7 and above: Start > type "View All Prob" and you should see "View All Problem Reports" displayed. Select it. Find your simulator in the list, expand the list, and then find the latest crash. Paste the results here.

I´m having the same issue. It happens only in the aircraft selection menu.

That event report indicates FSXSE is hanging, an application hang occurs for any number of reasons. I did a google of your problem and found many posts in the steam community forums on this issue.  We had beta testers using FSXSE the entire testing period so I'm confident it's not directly caused by the PMDG product.

Just to be clear Kyle, is the manual (and I'm reading it presently) suggesting that the line should be there (FSX, not Steam), or shouldn't be there; or does it really not matter but it might cause the issue reported (I'm seeing it to)? As the manual suggests, it loads fine, but I want to make sure I have the optimal setup.

 

Thanks.

Same issue here; see screen shots (https://www.flickr.com/photos/141330124@N05/shares/ad7M4i)

The plane appears normal placed at an airport and in the air.

I confirm I'm having the same issue with the front of the aircraft not displaying correctly in the startup screen. I'm running FSX-SE on a machine with an i7-6700k running at 4.4 Ghz and an nvidia gtx 970 on W10 64. The plane looks fine in the sim and runs great but just not displaying correctly when I select it. In the introduction document it states that it may happen but eventually display normally which it doesn't. I know you don't support DX10 but I do run it at my own risk with steve's fixer. Might this cause this issue?

Of course the HIGHMEMFIX=1 has been applied also. Should the DisablePreload=1 line be changed to a "0" or removed? The introduction doc. isn't quite clear on this.

 

I love this new version and this is indeed a small issue and certainly can live with it but just would like some clarification on whether or not I'm doing something to cause this or if there's something I can do to correct it.

 

Thanks so much for your hard work with this product.

It's not clear because we don't have a stance on it. If it's there, you'll see an oddity. If it's not, you won't.

 

Tweaking guides have said for years that you should add it in (and FSX:SE has it in there by default), but it depends on who you ask.

Ok. Thanks. But just to be clear, to avoid this issue we're experiencing we should delete this line or "//" it out or change it to "0"?

OK, thanks Kyle. I'll put it in and see if it helps. If not, I can always take it out again. Appreciate the response.

Yeah. I'm not sure what ramifications that'll have on the sim in general though. There's gotta be a reason DTG added the common tweak in there by default. I'm not really into that whole side of things though.

Well for now I'm gonna change the entry for DisablePreload from = 1 to =0 and see what happens. I'll let you know how it goes.

 

Thanks.

Does it  really matter  if the start up screen   shows  only  half  the aircraft,  as long it  shows  correctly in the  sim  is the main thing.   or  am i missing  some  thing

Well, I also understood that it is just an optical thing in the start up screen - no systems issue or simulation problem after actually starting a flight.

That's why I just left "DisablePreload=1" in the .cfg-file.

I hope I got this right.
