G1000 popup windows drop fps dramatically

Recommended Posts

Hello

I bought the Mindstar G1000 Advanced licence. I want to use the PFD and MFD in separate monitors (VGA 800x600). I'm using the Carenado KingAir 200 and following the retrofit instructions I create 2 new popup windows for PFD and MFD.

My PC has a really good performance on Prepar3d V3.4, I get 90 fps on Carenado King Air 200 however when I open the G1000 (PFD and MFD) windows the value of FPS drops dramatically from 90fps to 18fps.

I try to change the SHOW_ALL_INSTANCES to OFF and to ON as well, but continue the FPS isuue.

When I flying only the prepar3d without G1000 popup windows the CPU performance is good, all cores in the task manager work at the same porcentage. However when I open the G1000 popup windows 1 Core (generally the firts) increase the usage to 90%. I tried to use an affinity mask setup in the prepar3d.cfg to set all cores, or to set the last 7 cores but ever 1 core is used to 90% with the G1000 windows.

I have the Windows antivirus deactivated and the error reporting service disabled.

Can you help with this issue?

 

Best Regards.
