Freezing, stutters on P3D v4.1

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I'm having a strange problem in Prepar3D v 4.1: everytime I use right mouse click to turn a knob or flick a switch, the simulator stops and freezes for a few seconds.

Then the screen flickers, the switch or knob changes position and the right mouse button menu opens.

It started after upgrading to 4.1.

I'm using 60 Hz refresh rate, unlimited frames and vertical sync. Video card is NVidia 1070 GTX.

Save your p3d.cfg to p3d.cfg.off.  Restart P3D and let the config build a new config.  See if it continues.  Make sure P3D.cfg is used to control your video card and your graphics card settings are the default for P3D.

Also, did you install any addon? I have had the same problem while installing an airport which wasn't compatible

Well, regarding add-ons...

I have PMDG 737, A2A's Connie, C172and C182 and ORBX Global with Vector.

Too much add-ons, maybe they are not ready for 4.1 (although A2A released an update on the 10th).

I tried deleting the config file. Didn't work. Now when I give a command with the mouse, like changing the mixture or throttle, the sim stops, freezes, and then 20 seconds later it responds. 

Really unplayable.

I do habe FSUIPC 5 installed, I'll look to see if it is interfering with something.

Make sure the fsuipc5 is up to date as it is updated when bugs are found and that could have been 2 hours ago.

Jim,

Thanks.

Problem solved.

I updated to FSUIPC5 version 5.121b, and now it is working perfectly.

Thank you for the tip.

P.S.: Never thought that FSUIPC would have anything to do with it. Flight Simulators: living and learning! :emu:

I've experienced similar behavior with the mouse causing stuttering and the "b" FSUIPC 5 update "fixed" it. But I think that there's something wrong with the P3d4 Mouse Look/Mouse Yoke logic even when both are supposedly disabled and the FSUIPC update masked the problem in the sim.

Hi all, Where exactly can I find FSUIPC5 version 5.121b?

UPDATE:

Well, it still remains.

Eithers FSUIPC 5 "b" or "c" updates didn't solve the problem.

Everytime I use the right mouse button to flip a switch, the sim freezes, processes some application outside the sim, and then the sim accepts the given command and works normally.

I disbaled mouse yoke and mouse look, and no success, the bug still remains. 

I believe it is something related to P3D v4.1 itself, not FSUIPC.

Make sure that you create a thread about this on the official LM forum if you haven't already done so. Also, read over Pete Dowson's thread again about this issue on the official FSUIPC forum. He made a comment about disabling the <spacebar> P3d4 keyboard shortcut (Toggle Mouse Look) but I wasn't sure what he meant.
