Unknown Icons and FPS after Hotfix 3

Recommended Posts

I have just finished installing the latest Hot Fixes for P3d ver 3.4x without a full re-install and everything seemed to go well.

But, I have some new bugs that have me baffled ...

1) I have developed the 50% "FPS drop" disease caused when Un-docking panels and placing them on another monitor and nobody else seems to have this problem ... as I can't find the reason I'll try Nvidia to see if they have a fix ... it's something new!

2) A strange pair of Icons now inhabit my screen on startup and flight and I don't think it's any of my add-ons but before I resort to a full P3d re-install I thought someone might have a simpler suggestion.

See the pic file attached.

They are from Nvidia Shadow Play - disable that in startup and they'll go away.

Hi Vic,

Many thanks for the feed back ... you're right but I found that out during a session with Nvidia regarding the FPS drop issue.  They re-installed the latest driver and it cured the shadow play in the process but did nothing for the FPS issue which I now believe to be a P3d matter.

Anyway for my edification Nvidia told me to always do a "custom" driver upgrade, check all the boxes except 3D (if you're not using it) and be sure to check the box to "remove old driver".

Best,

Ken
