Flashing sim with W10 in the windowed mode

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Just installed the new sim (4.4) on the new W10 build. Everything looks great with an exception that the sim itself is flashing while in "windowed" mode. As soon as I switch it to the Full Screen, the flashing goes away. Since it's not GPU to blame, I'm curious what this might be?

Thanks for the suggestions.

Did you try with a different driver?

I have had it for a while and i have heard it could be something related to W10 updates (since 1809 i think)

Also flashing aircraft in the P3D aircraft/scenario select menu

Thanks

Andre,

I'd happy to try if I had known which of 20-30 recent drivers I should try. 🙂

Yep, 1809 is here. Again, no issues in the Full Screen (even though I don't like FS mode since FS2002 times)

Which drivers worked fine on the previous build? Or did you have also a hardware update or only O/S?

It's my first W10 build. I have been using W7 until recently. Yes, it's brand new 9900k build on W10 with the old 1080Ti

Have you flushed your shaders?

PTA you mean? Yes I did, with the new 2.63 version for 4.4

In that case going back to default shaders all working correct?

I'm going to see it myself later tonight. Normally, PTA has never caused any issues since Day 1.

It's more going back to default install, and when working fine I would go from there...

Make sure you also have the latest drivers and bios stuff for your hardware.

We experienced this during 4.4 Beta tests, LM advised to enable VSync and triple buffering to get rid of this behaviour.

Note this only happens on Windowed mode, if you run the Sim on full mode you should be fine without the need of triple buffering.

Try locking the framerate at 30.

I have the same problem on a new built/install.  I locked the framerate to 30 and the flashing went away.  Who knew and why?

 

Thanks

Correct. As I have already mentioned, the Full mode is not affected by that flickering behavior

I too notice the flashing after new install of Win 10 yesterday. (I finally gave in). ONLY way to resolve is Vsync enabled in P3D.Which is no problem really. Drove me nuts man. Is this a driver issue, MS or internal P3DV4.4?

Enable Triple Buffering and you will be fine.

Can the mods make a stick for the Full Screen optimization.  I believe everyone is gonna face it when their systems force them to be updated to Windows 1809

Does anyone have an installed fslabs a320? Their fsl_configurator will reset the value that I set in the properties of the shortcut prepar3d every time when its start...(disable full screen optimization)

I updated two systems to 1809 and do not have the issue. I fear it's system specific, some will and some won't.
