    8bit looking textures at night

    Ok I activated this earlier when you told me to so without tomato it does look slightly better I will have to try it with tomato tonight to see. To be honest though I am quite happy with how things look now so I might just leave it as is and not touch anything else. Right now I am flying to Dallas on vatsim holding steady at 60 frames per second so I really honestly don't want to break it anymore.

    8bit looking textures at night

    that's what I was trying to explain I did a complete uninstall meaning removing the six prepare3D folders in addition to uninstall in the game everything was absolutely gone even clean the registry afterwards. then did a complete reinstall and checked the game each time I installed a new product and everything was fine honestly and then all of a sudden poof it just happened on its own I didn't change anything. so I thought to myself well it's there but not quite as bad so I put tomatoshade back on, then it showed up extremely bad so that told me that tomato shade is just bringing it out more at night time but looks great at daytime. So right now I went in and remove tomatoshade turned off HDR lighting and remove reflections, the result is the banding is there but barely noticeable at all almost like it was in the default. So honestly I think it has always been there I just have never noticed it until I applied the tomatoeshade which enhanced it more or brought out the "ugly" in the Sim LOL. I have been doing a lot of Google searches and it turns out that possibly this has nothing to do with the simulator or anything. So I decided to try something out and I started X-Plane 11, wouldn't you know it banding exist there as well at night time.

    Yes this was an absolute uninstall and a very clean reinstall everything was completely removed. This is the strange thing I had the pmdg 747 on the runway and turned on the landing lights and all exterior lighting at night time, went into spot View and I noticed there was did not look as bad as it did before so I close the Sim and restarted. I went right back into the same exact scenario and the banding was absolutely horrible this time I didn't touch anything so somehow it made itself worse just by restarting the SIM.

    Well I did a complete reinstall, and STILL HAVE THE PROBLEM.... This has to be hardware or something outside the sim?

    Ok I may just do a complete reinstall, I just hate having to redownload all the orbx stuff......I wish I didn't have to.

    No sir, not using reshade or inspector.
  11. I have Tomato Shade installed and I have also removed all shaders (with and without tomato), I have even removed the shader folders and cfg then did a repair of the client. Nothing seems to work??? I have tried numerous drivers for my nvidia card to no avail. Please assist if you can...

    Stuttering issue

    Ok a little update: I started googling p3d stutters, and I came across this micro stutter thread. It had a link to an affinity mask calculator and I did it. After adding this to my p3d cfg, poof! No more stuttering??? I was under the impression that this was no longer required, however it seems to have fixed my problem so maybe it is a as-needed basis I don't know? Either way it seems to be working great now and maybe I hope this would help someone. I'm going to throw the link up for that Affinity mask calculator in case it might help somebody one day. I hate when I read a thread of someone who has the same problem as me and they say okay it's working now and then never follow up as to what did you do... Link:

    Stuttering issue

    I did that as I read it as one of the possible solutions, still stuttering. It really is strange, if I dont taxi or move at high speed its fine. The second I start taking off it stutters so bad its almost unflyable?
