Blinking Cursor of Death

Recommended Posts

Hey!

I just tried the first flight with the DC6. as i started the AFE i noticed a huge FPS drop. My Cursor started blinking when I hover over the clickspots in the VC. I know this problem from a time ago and the solution was to disable the Show cockpit ToolTips checkbox. But this didnt helped.

Are You sure the FPS drops ?

I have the same, but FPS are ok, but P3D starts to stutter when AFE is On with a frequency of 5 times per second indicated by blinking mouse cursor when hovering over a VC clickspot.

The FPS are dropping to around 8. Definitive performance drop there. - But I use FSX.

I also read (as I had the same problem a while ago) that undocking the 2D panels helps... but not in this case. I think this has to do with 2D panels that are not fitting the size of the sim window or something (also, I read this a time ago).

Would be nice to have a solution for this, at this time I cant use the DC6... on the first day :-(

Okay, it seems I solved it - more or less - by undocking the green message window when the AFE starts. I talk about the green bar which is showing the actual state of the AFE. I undocked it and moved it to my second monitor and the flickering is gone, also the FPS are back to normal!

Hmm - worth trying - could relate to that - thx for the hint.

*** EDIT ***

I tried both undock the message window as well as selecting "Notifications hidden". Both ways removed the stutterering.

I actually think I can live without those notofications - but still hope PMDG will look into this.

Better not use the AFE, learn the procedures and you dont need the AFE...I only use the AFE to park the plane.

Would you be able to test something for me?

Go into the options panel (the gear icon in the panel selector - if the panel selector goes missing, hit SHIFT+2 to bring it up), and enable the option for Notifications Hidden. Does this stop the frame drop?

Also: what are your comp's specs?

I already tried deactivating the Notifications, no success. The only thing that works so far is undocking the green bar... but I can live with that.

Comp Specs:

AMD FX-6300 - Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti - 16GB RAM

Using Active sky, FTX global and vector, Steves DX10 Fixer, FSUIPC Registered (autosave and such things deactivated)

And I use a tool for having full window without borders... didnt know anymore the name. I push CTRL+Enter to go to full screen. But porblem also appeared in window mode.

Try disabling DX10 temporarily. Report back.

This may also be the problem.

Keep in mind that when you use tools that affect how the simulator behaves at its core, it may cause all kinds of weird issues when devs try to program for the average sim.
