What can cause this issue with the particles effect and with the strobe/nav lights?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

i have a really strange issue with the particles effect and the strobe/nav lights. Please look at the screenshots bellow. The issue is intermittent. Sometimes it happens and fixes itself if i change views. It happens anywhere where particles are shown. Also happens to ai aicrafts/

I have restored my p3d effects folder from scratch and the issue persists so im clueless now. This is with P3D 4.1. I also have a radeon r9 290 and windows 7

Looks like the fireworks effects in cities. Like it invaded all your other particle effects lol.

Have you tried deleting shaders?

Another possible solution is to reinstall the client component.

Hello Juan,

It looks more like the  fx_2.bmp  from \Effects \Texture folder being incorrectly applied. Though I am not running P3D I have no immediate answer, perhaps a P3Dv4.1 expert can chime in to assist.

I helped a user with this problem already.

Windows 10 installed automatically for you new drivers for your R9 GPU and with it a software video control panel (the equivalent to Nvidia control panel).

If you search on AIG forums you will find my posts about this issue and R9 video cards.

Unistall the video control panel software, leave only the drivers and you will be trouble free, I don't remember the name of the control panel software right now, will post it later when I get to the office.

Leave the textures untouched.

Thanks guys. I will try your suggestions and report back

Ok I just confirmed, you need to uninstall the AMD catalyst software as this is trying to change your video card performance dynamically causing Directx artifacts with P3DV4 lights particles.

You are now the 3rd user I know with the same issue, it took me 4 hours of remote support to discover the problem the first time.

Makes a lot of sense. As soon as i get to my house i will roll back to an older release.

 

Thanks!

The resolution was to un-install AMD Crimson ReLive, however I am not sure if your issue is the same.

Do you have an AMD video card?

Do you have a large number (>30) of additional add-on effect folders defined? If so, P3D might not be able to find the effect textures. I had that problem and got rid of it by consolidating into only a few effect folders.

I did not find AMD Crimson ReLive in by means of Search in my computer. I found the AMD Software in the programs and components (Windows10 64 bit). I really need to remove AMD Software from the computer? I'm do not know much about computer technology. Thank you.

So it could be your problem is not the same as the original user posted here.

Find one of your affected AI models with your problem and post the aircraft.cfg light section here so I can inspect it.

This is not an AI model, this is the A2A comanche, are you experiencing the problem with this flyable airplane only or also with all AI airplanes?

I flew on the default Bananze. There is no distorted light. Everything is fine. I have no other planes from A2A or other manufacturers. Only Comanche 250 Professional A2A.

So your problem is only with the Comanche 250 Professional A2A effects, I suggest you re-install this airplane (as system admin) and if this doesn't resolve your issue contact A2A for further support.
