Getting a message to say Not enough VRAM available is OK, or stopping with Out of VRAM messages is less OK and not particularly graceful but to crash unexpectedly is a fault even if that fault is simply not having provided a message or log entry.

They should do like some ahem "games" do, when ever you adjust a slider it should show in the menu exactly how much VRam it will cost you.

He said 'it feels like a total new sim' not a completely different LOOKING sim.

nothing but problems for me.  And this comes from a guy who had no problems with hotfix 1 other than some gsx ctd's when requesting pushback.  I was able to fix that by reinstalling gsx.  However now I'm getting a CTD on the majority of scenario starts.

To all VR users of P3Dv5 - major performance and smoothness improvements for single-pass, single display. I have not seen a graphics crash (as long as I start WMR and SteamVR first ). Get HF2 NOW. I just uninstalled / installed the Client so far. Please report here or start a new thread please.

Ok great.

So if I just uninstall the whole of P3D and reinstall, all my add ons should be there?

Yup....as I said... all works, all add-ons where they belong as long as you install at the same place. Ran ORBX verify files and in the air already....not sure about that faster loading time but sim seems much smoother for now....not sure about FPS but they are doubled at this time...whatever happened and whatever they changed....

Cheers everyone..!!!!

That weird feeling when you actually NOTICE two performance improvements in two updates in a row. Never had this previously if i remember correctly. Wow.

Now get that TrueSky working correctly for TrueAwesomeness(tm).

For those wondering how to install HF2, I did the following (as per Nick from Orbx's instructions for HF1:

1. using the Windows control panel, uninstall the P3D client and when asked if you want to deregister P3D v5, answer No.

2. Then uninstall the content and then the scenery and finally the top P3D v5 entry in the Windows control panel.

3. Delete your Prepar3d config file: C:\Users\your user account name\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Prepar3D.cfg file

4. Delete your shaders: C:\Users\your user account name\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Shaders.

5. Run your newly downloaded and unzipped Setup_Prepar3D.exe as an administrator.

This will take about 20-30 minutes, but most of the time you can be doing something else. If you're worried - it's really not very scary at all! I personally did not back up any files during this process.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My findings so far:

  • Addons such as FSUIPC working fine.
  • Performance seems great: F-32 at default location at settings, on the ramp frames peaking just above 200 FPS, in flight I'm getting peak frames of over 400 FPS!
  • Overall, very happy with HF2 after about an hour of test-flight time.

Recommendation:

  • It's a keeper!
