P3D 4.5 & Nvidia

Recommended Posts

Hello 

I updated to the latest Nvidia drivers the other day, and shortly after started getting some error messages in P3D which appeared to be graphics related. I was going to roll-back, but with the release of 4.5, could anyone tell me if theyare getting good results with the most recent drivers (417.xx from memory?). I intend on doing a full re-install but want to have correct stable drivers in place first.

thanks

Ian

White over White, you're out of sight. Red over White, you're alright. Red over Red, you're dead.

I also have 419.67 on P3D 4.4 and no errors.  Have you followed LM's diagnostics steps?

419.67 here and I just installed 4.5 client and content so far. Everything looks fine sitting at the gate. I've been testing at dusk and night FlyTampa KBOS. FPS is about the same as before. Seems okay to me so far. ymmv

I also have 419.67 and P3D 4.5 full installation and it works like before. Did you clear the shaders cache?

I think I know what you mean and the very short version is the last Windows 10 update (circa 29MAR19) had a particular (object) fix which seemed to “break” some GP dll’s which did not play nice with P3D.

I fixed it by doing a sfc /scannow and it did quite a number of repairs and all good now.

Try that.

Do you guys notice better performance, overall, with this version ( P3D 4.5 ) ?

I'm on Nvidia too, GTX 960 4GB, and usually set no fancy graphic effects ( no shadows whatsoever in my installs ). Looking fwd for the FSLabs Airbus updates to get released and try it in 4.5 :-)


I will believe in MFS the day I can Uninstall it !

Thanks for all the responses, I'll stick with that driver. Could you just clarify what the above means?

 

Cheers

Hi Ian,

Follow the sfc /scannow step in the AVSIM CTD guide, the link of which is above to your right on this screen.

It is native windows functionality on your computer that checks itself for corrupt or missing files in your Windows installation and repairs or replaces them.

It is very safe and cannot juicy fruit your computer.

Cheers,

Mark
