P3Dv4 : improved performance

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Aerosoft Frankfurt has to be made 100% compatible yet , but to test fps in slew it is a very good area.  

The moment I start PSXseeconTraffic I loose 2 fps so that is almost neglectable.

Autogen trees and buildings on top of photoscenery + AS EDDF.

amazing fps for EDDF compared to P3Dv3 - look forward to the aerosoft v4 release.

nice sim btw - how do you manage to get distortion free views on your side monitors? I'm on nvidia surround but still get some side stretching at 1.0 zoom.

thanks

Yes, V4 handles it all better than V3.

Regarding the views : 40" - 32" - 32" . They are 3 seperate views. Both 32" monitors use a zoom of 0.80. The 40" monitor 0.57 ( manual adjusted views ).

I just use the main front view in the middle , create a New View and drag that one to a side monitor . With Spacebar + left mouse button you can move the view inside the new window. Save the flight.

Hi--would TrackIR still work well for all three screens or only the middle screen?  Thanks much.

Cheers, I'll deactivate nvidia surround and give it a try.

What aircraft are you using? Please try a PMDG with heavy clouds and 8xmsaa setting...if you get 30+ I'd be surprised...

It is a real size home cockpit based on Prosim. Server + client pc. No PMDG , but as you can see 3 outside views...

I think that makes another real difference to users utilizing their VCs to fly around. Anyway nice setup you have :) 

At work i have a same setup despite the fact that there is also a cabin with flight attendent and passengers attached ;)

I always wanted to know how one uses P3D in that kind of setup. Does it only provide scenery? And flight dynamics are provided by the hardware setup?

Hi Karsten,

P3Dv4 is running on my server with Prosim 737 ( main program and Instructor Station ) , Prosim MCP  , Posim Panel and all of my scenery . I use the Prosim Flight model. 

The Flightdisplays are running on my client pc, so the fps drop when using flight displays I do not have.  Also my weather program is running on my client.   

The hardware is devided over server and client.

 

Regards,

Gerard
