Hi all,

I've just pushed the latest version of PTA (v2.51). To update, visit the "My Account" section on the SimTweaks website, view your PTA order and download it from there.

To install, just overwrite the .exe that's supplied with the updated zip file directly over your current PTA install. I've also included my own preset for those of you who are looking for something to get you started (I think it's pretty sweet, but then apparently I have a huge ego, so take what you will from that :D).

v2.51 Changes

  • - Improved activation logic
  • - The "Clouds shadows tweak" is back. Due to changes in the Prepar3D v4 shaders code, this tweak has had to be rewritten with NEW parameters and ranges. Check the help pane for the new possible values.
  • - New post-processing shader "Technicolor2" added adapted from Reshade 3 to P3D the rendering engine.
  • - New post-processing shader "DPX3 adapted" added from Reshade 3. it should make the image look like it's been converted to DXP Cineon - basically it's another movie-like look, similar to technicolor.

Thanks for your continued support.

Matt.

Thanks Matt.

I slightly used the extra clouds shadow depth now ( 0.95 ) beside the terrain lighting ( sun/shadow )

All looks great !

Thanks

 I had the same error. I used the previous version of pta to restore my original p3d shaders and config. Then used the latest version. Everything worked fine.
