Prepar3D v5.3 released

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Looking for a bit of advice as to what these mean in my cfg file 

[JobScheduler]
;AffinityMask=4294967295
P3DCoreAffinityMask=4294967295
MainThreadScheduler=0
RenderThreadScheduler=2
FrameWorkerThreadScheduler=4
AffinityMask=4294967295
;AffinityMask=4294967295
;AffinityMask=4294967295

 

I have just ran the install of 5.3 and as i have a 5950x with whatever amd call hyperthreading on, hence the size of the affinity mask but  i have no idea what the ; means that is in front of the AffinityMask lines

does anyone have any ideas? do they need to be there or can i delete them? what  do they do 

many thanks for any advice

 

If you read the thread about 'Horrible FPS' this is all explained. Probably best not to delete these settings (presumably they get recreated if you do) but you may see a benefit by tweaking the settings, although the stutters problem seems to be a bug and not essentially related to AffinityMask settings. The lines with the ; at the start are redundant and can be removed.

I've been tinkering for what seems like days trying to find the "best" AM for me and my results are inconsistent at best while battling microstuttering in windowed mode.  Anyone have suggestions for AM settings for a 12-core/24-thread 5900X that's lead to positive experiences? 

I'm currently trying

 

[JOBSCHEDULER]	
AffinityMask=5592405
P3DCoreAffinityMask=5592405
MainThreadScheduler=0
RenderThreadScheduler=2
FrameWorkerThreadScheduler=4

But I'm not certain it's the smoothest for me.  Thanks.

So, when do you think they will release the P3D v5.3 hotfix?

Last time, the Hotfix came exactly 3 weeks later. That means it could come in two days. But you can no foresee that, since we don't know what they intend to fix and what not and how much time is needed to do this. Then are holidays and maybe it's going to be January.

Was there any mention from LM that they were working on the fix before it got released the last time?

Can't remember last time, but this time I remember having read somewhere they are working on a hotfix. Moreover it has become a little bit tradition in recent times, that they hotfix all releases.

I hope so. I would like to give 5.3 a try, but I decided to wait for the HF.

Maybe you should even wait another week until all addons are updated to the new version number. I have several, like F1 GTN, Maddog, EnvShade which don't accept new versions.

BTW i just saw Rob McCarthy from LM stated two days ago, they are working on a upcoming hotfix. I hope they fix some things.

Yes, if you´d read my post you see this is an unecessary post.

Hi all. Took a couple months off from sims due to family issues but now got sidelined at work by COVID and stuck at home for a couple of weeks. Was surprised to find 5.3 came out. Uninstalled 5.2 and everything that wasn’t external install. Put on 5.3 (no config file tweaks at all). This is the best P3D has performed and looked. I got a slight performance boost while I upped the settings. Hovering around 40 FPS on most things. PMDG about 30-35. I am very happy. Can’t think of flying anything else right now, very much falling in love with P3D again.

Wow, well done LM's P3D team. Big performance improvements!! I've installed 5.3 and can confirm that it's running very high settings very well! 👏

I'm running EVGA FTW 3080ti, an i9-11900k CPU with 64GB of memory. It actually feels like I'm getting the performance my system deserves. Very happy about this release, kudos to the developers involved!

This update should hopefully bring back any P3D users who converted to MSFS 2020. I have both and prefer P3D (especially v5.3).
