First reactions to P3Dv4.4

Recommended Posts

so far just installed client. Me Likes, very mucho. 4.3 I had to run limited for smoothness, 4.4 runs great unlimited. As usual I put in no AM. I'm positive I've gained around at least 5 fps. (and yes, it does load from startup quite a bit faster)

Install the content, you can try the PBR models and enjoy something new 🙂

Scenery is also recommended, 😉

Haven’t had time to read thoroughly and digest the change list and I’m not at home to be able to install 4.4.... yet

Since there’s a lighting upgrade, did LM manage to fix the terrain/cloud shadow flicking on and off problem during panning.

Really??  It's the feeling you seen, or done something more than once.  Like living yesterday all over again.

I bet Simicro knows what a déja vu is, and that he's curious why Ed is experiencing it 😉

Strange. I uninstalled the 4.3 client, installed the 4.4 client and I end up with a black screen...i can hear the default background noises...just with a black screen. Reverted back to 4.3 and all ok...any others with this issue?

Sounds like shaders were recompiling.

During certain Beta builds I got that and after a couple of seconds everything was running ok.

I suggest you update client and content and clean your local shaders before launching P3D.

It is also a good idea to update your Video drivers, this new build uses lot of new stuff in terms of Graphics.

Thanks. Yes, I have the latest drivers and I did delete shaders as I normally do with a client update..will maybe re-download the client. What I noticed was the sim started with the default flight...i could hear the background noises..it didn't run with the start up menu.
