Red text after today's update wen running Preset

Recommended Posts

So I got Matt's emails today and downloaded and replaced the old PTA with the new one.

Then when I went to load my preset I got this.  With a bunch of red text.  Since I only use people's presets I have no idea how to resolve this, can anyone offer suggestions or help?

Thanks.

Delete your current version of PTA - download the new one from the website.

Restore your shaders within P3D by running the Prepar3D Client and select "Repair".

Re run PTA and re-apply the shader preset.

Hopefully that works.

Matt, I said at the top of my first post that I did download your new PTA.

Then I just dropped it in the folder and overwrote it.

And it asked me if I wanted to save shaders or something so I said no.

I'm in the middle of a flight right now.

I'll do all this as soon as I can.

And get back to you.

I just went to your site and I saw that I accidentally downloaded the one for P3Dv3!

Good grief am I stupid.

How do I restore wit hthe Client?  When I go to the Control Panel in Windows 7 and click on the Client and click repair it tells me it's on a network and can't find it.

You need to redownload it from the P3D website.

After restore, plopped the new version in the folder, overwrote it and not a problem.

Thanks for your help Matt.
