    P3D multicore usage anomoly

    I've heard the high usage of one core described as being the main controller core. And for myself killing core zero and then re-enstating it does nothing other than push the main core thread onto a different core where it still happily uses as much of the Core's CPU % as it needs. What I do is use Process Lassoo, being the nice handy tool it is you can push literally everything off core zero apart from P3D. That way there is no contention of core zero and P3D has it practically all to itself. Usually I go a bit further and push everything to Cores 4~7 so that P3D can use 0~3 for it's own use and run P3D with a priority of Above Normal. But then again I also overclock and like trying out little tweeks and such in an effort to gain smoothness without overloading the GPU/CPU. The biggest difference was to go to a monitor with a 30 Hz capability because then I could VSync and achive a very smooth 30 fps, that was before I found out about RTSS though and I might have stuck with my old 60 Hz monitor had I known about RTSS and its capablity to perform a 1/2 vsync rate (e.g. (60 Hz / 2) = 30 fps or (30 hz / 2) = 15 fps). In actuality although it's difficult to achive a high enough frame rate to vsync in P3D once a few addins have been installed but I do have games that are much harder on both GPU and CPU, e.g. Crysis 1, same deal great fps while stock, but the time immersion, Ai and HD packs are installed the max frame rate is ~24 fps, and SkyRim Special Edition, I have around 150 odd mods installed all of which chew on the CPU/GPU, however both of these are still highly playable and feel much smoother than P3D does anyway probably because P3D has a hard time maintaining a steady framerate. Just waiting on those Ryzen 3 3850X with 32 threads @ 5.1 GHz to come out then I'll begin planning a new build, hopefully NVidia prices will have come down by then as well. Cheers

    Roll back Chaseplane update

    Hi Keven, When I first booted up P3D and loaded an a/c, chaseplane activated. It brought up the message that a new version was released, i ignored this for a bit and chase plane worked as usual. Then for some reason, I must have ticked the message, thinking...go away...It did, but I must have told it to update(I hate this...wish it would "offer" to update or remain at the present version) then when i went back and tried to access my cameras, all internal camera selections would not move off my last selection(FMC). The external cameras worked ok? I did wonder if for some reason, it wanted me to rebuild all new internal camera views, though, did not try this. Also, I noticed I was using views I set up for the QW 787-8 in the 787-9, and wondered later if that had upset chaseplane at all. So, I thought the easiest solution was to roll back to my previous P3Dv4.4 version while resolving this issue.

    How To Load Flight Plan

    i tried searching this topic before asking but could never find a solution. i want to load a flight plan i made in other software. i've tried to follow the user guide to the letter, but it's confusing. here's what i did: 1) create a shortcut called "FPLN" in C:/ProgramData/Garmin/Trainers/Databases/GTNNAVDATA that points to my x-plane flight plan folder, 2) put the starter pack .gfp flight plan and user.wpt files in the x plane flight plan folder 3) open Xplane and go to flight plans, click menu. however there is no import button thanks for any help

    Do you have this in your panel.cfg file: [Vcockpit05] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=1024,1024 visible=1 pixel_size=1024,1024 texture=$Panel_5 gauge00=rxpGTN!GTN_750_1, 0, 0,667,794,NO_BEZEL ?

    I found the issue, it is Firefox for some reason. Downloaded with Chrome with no problem, plus another aircraft I wanted from the same site.... John

    hmm i had no problems. It´s on google drive. Are you sure that you completely downloaded the file? And did you use 7zip to unpack it?

    Great shots... . Wanted to download this but I get errors when I try to unzip, and a malware alert on some of their other suggested unzipping apps. The site that hosts the file has always produced errors when I have tried to download other files from there. John

  13. Uncheck Raleigh Scattering that also causes a blue haze effect. But it is there in reality :
  14. I'm currently running P3D v4.4 with a GTX1060 6GB and a Ryzen 5 2600 @ 3.4GHz, 16GB DDR4 and SSD. I have a fairly limited budget, and my question is if I would see the biggest FPS increase by upgrading the CPU to a Ryzen 7 2700X, or by upgrading the GPU to a 1070 8GB or RTX2060 6GB. I know these are fairly specific questions but any help would be appreciated.

    LorbyFlashlight no run

    If those paths really are different as you show them, then that is probably why it doesn't start. Question: how did it end up in the add-ons.cfg and which add-ons.cfg are we talking about? The one in ProgramData or the one in AppData\Roaming? Another question - why do you have so many packages (135)? Remember that you don't need a single add-on.xml for every single scenery. You can add multiple sceneries to the same add-on.xml. Best regards

    Weird as can be! You can't turn down demand on the main core? That is something I've never had happen.
  17. Nice little video from The Flight Sim Deck Scary as heck coming to a stop right on the edge of a cliff like that........

    No issues with PrecipitFX and 4.5 @boomerc154, what is the subject of the message you send us (or the first part of the email address)?

    Roll back Chaseplane update

    What do you mean by "chase plan not too happy with this move"? CP should work with 4.4 without issues even after a reinstall of the sim...
  21. I just bought orbx ftx England and when i tried to install it the installer couldn't find any option at please select the version to install. here is the screenshot http://prntscr.com/nefiq6 What should I do now? I have orbx global and My libraries are updated. Any help will be higly appreciated :)
  22. Agreed with above. I fully support the ones who offer free upgrades. I’ve been super grateful for FSDT with how they’ve supported multiple versions.

    no i dont sorry, due to a number of reasons, as you can see it leads to a flood of requests which is one of the main reasons why i dont i recommend that someone creates a repaint request thread, so other painters can chime in and take on requests as they seem fit, this will prevent each painters preview thread being bombarded with requests

    Carenado GTN 750

    Bill, They are all showing version 2.5.16.0 I want to purchase that new Carenado A42 and i wonder if that's gonna be a problem loading the integration with the GTN750. The Window pop up docking has no problem even with other third party aircraft models. It works flawlessly. But Carenado designed their model to integrate with this GTN750 within the VC and it ain't happening on my setup. The PC12 has two NAV equipment, it's able to display the GTN750 on the smaller Nav system but not the actual panel. So it is displaying but not on the panel that was integrated to be used. Matsu

    FPS in V4.5 (waiting for a fix)

    Honestly, I've just given up and waiting for the fix. I still fly and take a sip of coffee during a freeze, so that's a lot of coffee. Mainly I just stick to some VFR around some less autogen dense areas. Hopefully that hotfix is due any day now.
  27. I must have some how updated Chaseplane to P3Dv4.5 version...but i still only have P3Dv4.4. As chase plan not too happy with this move, how do i roll back the update to .37 until such times I update P3Dv4 to v4.5?
