I just purchased $3000  worth of new hardware and now you come out with this (4.3)?!?!?.  Man, I could run V4.3 at full max settings on my ole E8400 at stock speeds with this update!

Just got out of the PMDG 747 cockpit ....with dynamic lighting on, every light switch set to the on position at KLAX gate 112 .... and 30 fps in the cockpit?!?!?!?  ....and I got better FPS in the cockpit than the outside spot view!

C'MON MAN!

WTG guys (the crew at Lockheed) on the update!

Lol it had been posted in here for at least a couple weeks now that 4.3 was coming out. I think the interview was back in April about 4.3. Oh well, you are now set for v5 and the years to come. (Glass half full)

I don't think that was the point of his post ...

Check for irony!

No, the update is like a whole new sim .....I'm overjoyed ...well, except I really do think I could've put my $3000 somewhere else now.  <g>

Ah, I gotcha. Well, hopefully you don't have to upgrade for a very long time again...I know it does suck having spent all that money only for a major update to be released.

Same thing with KSFO.  Lol, VC is much faster than outside.  Lol.  I can deal with outside.  VC is smooth so far.  More testing tomorrow.

I am with PMDG 737, will try 777 tomorrow too

Sorry man ....I should'a provided a lil more context.....the situation where I claimed 30 FPS with V4.3 I was getting 5 FPS with V4.2.

Crazy, right!

Man, with V4.2 on rnwy 1L with the PMDG 747 I could only manage the inboards, beacon, nav and strobes to maintain 25fps.  Now, with those same settings i'm getting 50 fps!!!! that's right 50! lol

With all the lights on - inboard, outboards, rnwy turn-offs, nav, beacon, strobes, wings and logo ...I'm still over 30 fps. With V4.2 I would be lucky to hold 5 fps.

And it's not just dynamic lighting ....heck, the Orbix lighting over the LA basin is cray life like now. ...And not to mention the other benefit that comes with the improved lighting engine ...the computer now has room to actually simulate physics! 🙂

Check your settings, my bet is: updating the client reverts several settings back to default...

That sounds hopeful, I really hope performance has been noticeably improved. I'm in the process of wiping out my old P3D install and reinstalling a fresh copy of v4.3 now.

Sounds promising. Will wait for the usual hype to die down. I am on v3.4 and was waiting for v5 but if people are still saying the same in a weeks time I will have to move to v4 🙂

Its incredibly frustrating isn't it? You spend the money, expect the performance to match the outlay, and....And if your able to monitor what is happening on the CPU, you find that it is  hardly utilising 20%. I've upped my chill pill intake!

Hope you get it sorted better.

I think you missed the sarcasm.  I think he is saying that he bought a $3000 comp to get better frames etc for P3D but LM released this update which optimized the sim so he could have kept his old comp.  Since the sim would have ran better even on the old PC.

I have most of Orbx Europe, uninstall & reinstall in order "Client" "Content" then "Scenery", Once installed delete shaders folder and Scenery cfg file, run P3D and fly over area to check scenery is ok. Don't forget to run makerunways again. Happy landings

Hi Chris-

As far as I can tell the upgrade didn't change any settings or even the few tweeks i had in the P3d config file. I installed the client only.

Hi Jason,

from the Poppets i cant understand if ORBX is deleted or not,

he also says that those folders are replaced when you updating content 

Install_ Content.msi is including Scripts, redist, SimObjects, Weather, Scenarios, Ecosystem, Fonts, Autogen, Effects, gauges, Sound, Texture
 

ORBX use this folders (texture) isn't it? and PMDG and other aircraft using the gauges folder.. so that mean they also going to be deleted?

Hello lidorx7 

With the exception of Orbx Global Base and FTX Trees,  The Orbx Installers Install extra files to these locations Instead of modifying Prepar3D default files,  This means you can either Update or reinstall Prepar3D and keep your entire Orbx Install in place.  Note:  If you update the Scenery component or reinstall Prepar3D you will need to reinstall Orbx Global base and FTX Trees,  thats it though

Please see the topic beow for steps you can take after either updating or reinstalling Prepar3D
