PTA with P3Dv4 v4.5 Hotfix 2?

Recommended Posts

It looks like an update to PTA will be needed to work with the new hotfix 2 version of P3D v4.5 (4.5.13.32097, released 26 Sep).

Is that being worked?

I remember last time or the time before it took him a few weeks I believe to get an update out. Hopefully much sooner this time but not holding my breath.

What specific errors are you getting? I've been able to apply my presets without issues, and a quick test shows that (apart from possible custom tweaks) only "FSX style reflections" causes an error.

Couple of the shader files are different so PTA will not touch them.  I would NOT use PTA until it's updated for HF2.

TOGA Projects ENVSHADE has been updated to support HF2, if you want an alternative.

Cheers, Rob.

Thanks, Rob.

My PTA works with no apparent issues, though I suspect (as you say) there'll be some missing features. At least what *does* work doesn't create any artefacts etc.

I can barely stand to run P3D without a shader mod (PTA or TS) so I'm quite happy to run P3D in a slightly crippled form. I wonder how long it will be before Matt fixes PTA as I don't think it's really high priority these days :-((

Matt,

Are you there?

He last visited the forum here 14hr ago from the time of this post. Clearly he couldn't bother taking the 60 seconds to pop up a post saying when to expect an update.

According to his twitter postings he has a lot going on. He stepped away for over 7 weeks from streaming or anything flight sim related so there is no telling were things stand when it comes to his company and PTA.

I hate to say this (especially as I've been a long-time fan of PTA) but haven't we heard all this before?

Adam, at this point I am waiting for your TS preset. I have never used TS but plan to do so with your preset. I am hoping that your preset is more that natural, what you would see out the window look, for HDR enabled systems.

If that is the case, I feel bad for those still purchasing PTA as it is still available for sale.

He’s publicly listed on Twitter and letting his followers know what’s going on. He has also let it be known on his streams. Sounds like he took a long needed break.

Yep! It's deja vu all over again. Don't wait to be disappointed ... his 15 minutes seem to be over with.

Don’t know yet. First I want FFTF Dynamic to be compatible.

However, I have read about some people claiming to see flashes in the sky with their current PTA presets. 

Delending on how much a preset has been tweaked you might see abnormalities or not ..

Hi all,

I chimed in Friday on this post and asked what is HF2, the reply was Hotfix 2. Could someone give me a bit more guidance on this? I am not computer literate. And at nearly 85 years, not as quick as you guys on stuff that is new. I do use PTA so I don't want to mess with it if it doesn't work. Thanks!

Hotfix2  has nothing to do with PTA and this forum.

Your answers to what Hotfix2 is can be found in the  Prepar3D forum here on Avsim.com.
