Is anyone else noticing that with HF2 and EA enabled, some scenery objects are now impervious to atmospheric effects/visibility? This was one thing I LOVED about EA, that there was no more tree/object popping through low visibility.  However now after a complete HF1 uninstall/HF2 reinstall I am seeing this at all my third party airports, whereas just yesterday I flew to all three of these airports (EDDH, EDDN, LSZH) in HF1 and did not see anything like it... Anyone else seeing this?

Clear Nvidia profiles. Right click on desktop, choose Nvidia Control Panel (NCP), go to Manage 3D settings. On the global settings tab choose Restore, then choose Apply. Do the same in Program settings for Prepar3D.exe. If Restore is not available, choose an arbitrary setting, apply it, then Restore/Apply.

With regard to CPU bandwidth:

I'm seeing better handling of core affinity on Hyperthreading.

I'm seeing a 20% improvement to overall performance.

I have the same question

There is an option in the Nvidia Control Panel when viewing the profile for P3D to restore defaults. Just click that and then click apply. You can also do the same for the Global profile.

&, of course, v5.1 is being worked on,

very happy so far with v5+ - & simply using Active Sky (no EA yet) - totally in Rift S VR - & enjoying all the Orbx LC regions + lots of extra add on airports with AI traffic...

naturally, have full parallel install of v4.5.

& the practical reality is that many of us are juggling P3D, XP, DCS, (even an Alpha) + other sims - all at the same time.

the trick is - to work within their constraints - & occasionally push the boundaries!

go back and check it out - take care who you quote.

I just did and corrected the attribution. There is a 'bug' with the forum system which is attributing the quote to the poster of the  message containing the quote, not to the poster of the quoted text itself!

Thanks for sorting it out. I apologise if I have misquoted anyone myself!

@SteveW no problem with me whether we agree or not, and in this case we do agree!

My VRAM use dropped from 4.1 to 3.7. No real noticeable effect in performance, which was just fine to begin with.

The smooth flight of the TE GB ended with this update. I was not happy for long. The terrible stuttering returned.

I was using the stock simulator for testing performance earlier and saw around 20% gains. Adding intense scenery or other effects may well bring things down to a similar level or performance in either version, because something might be at a flat line already before and after the hotfix.

@ Bert Piek:

Aha! I found a solution to that: I don’t use the autopilot 😂

Seriously, though, I’ve never used it in any of the aircraft I have. My real one doesn’t have one either and I don’t want to get too lazy. I like a well-trimmed airplane anyhow. 

@ Bert -  You seem to have the GTN working (F1 or RXP??) I get an error message when trying to use F1 GTN Complete - 'GTN error - incorrect version of simulator'. I have updated GTN and installed successfuly. Any ideas?

anyone know  - is GTN Complete compatible with HF2? Mine's not working. Otherwise HF2 seems to be working fine. Complete reinstall.
