  1. Ever since v4 everytime there is a new release I completely uninstall the current version and do a clean install of the new one. Never had any issues of any importance. Same procedure with v5.2 and have GSX, the PMDG aircraft, and using the same scenery bar one that worked in v5.1. Much better VRAM than in 5.1 and very stable. Have noticed that many people having issues with the sim never seem to publish their full system specs, if they did we would be able to find out wether their kit is fit for purpose. So do publish them and users will be more willing to give advice or help. One size doesn't fit all in this hobby anymore.
  2. Thanks rmeier for pointing me to the cerro file, it has fixed the problem. The funny thing is that in 5.1+HF it was working fine and when I added the scenery to 5.2 it didn't appear correctly and not just the Cerro. However the Cerro file has also removed all the default scenery items that were also appearing over the scenery. Best regards
  3. After working perfectly in v5.1 + HF it is now again a bit of a mess. The hill with the radar is high above the default hanging in mid air. Default buildings are coming through on parts of the scenery. This happens even after excluding all default scenery using Airport Design Editor and applying the available iniBuilds file for this airport. If anyone has managed to fix it in this new version of P3D some advice really appreciated.
  4. I am absolutely in agreement with the originator of this post as regards stability even though I do not use EA or HDR because the latter makes my VC too dark. Have done a couple of flights and performance is great. Had only one crash and that was caused by ChasePlane which has never failed me, perhaps the developer may have to check that it is fully compatible with this version of the sim. Happy days are here again.
  5. Good day After a clean install of version 5.2 I did a 3.5 hour long flight and just before landing the Sim Crashed. Below the event viewer logs. Faulting application name: ChasePlane.exe, version: 1.2.51.0, time stamp: 0x60c10920 Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.19041.1023, time stamp: 0xf739c3a5 Exception code: 0xc00000fd Fault offset: 0x0004e943 Faulting process ID: 0x37b8 Faulting application start time: 0x01d75fa4a2eda5e1 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Parallel 42\ChasePlane\ChasePlane.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report ID: 9a4a6019-7443-450f-9bbc-a5da0b512988 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: Faulting application name: ChasePlane_Bridge.exe, version: 1.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x60c108f0 Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.19041.1023, time stamp: 0x7977b9de Exception code: 0xc00000fd Fault offset: 0x000000000002ba56 Faulting process ID: 0x94c Faulting application start time: 0x01d75fa4a7888b5b Faulting application path: C:\Users\ideoplastic\AppData\Roaming\Parallel 42\ChasePlane\ChasePlane_Bridge.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report ID: a057b027-a99d-47b1-956a-49e08f9a551d Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: Is ChasePlane fully compatible with this new version of the simulator?
  6. All events are published by Vatsim. If you join you can then access myVatsim where daily and future events are published.
  7. Well looking at the specs in your system I'm surprised you can get MSFS2020 running smoothly. I will not discuss the pros and cons of MSFS2020 so may I suggest to you that you do the same in this forum?
  8. Thank you very much for your replies. Sorry for the delay, been away for the weekend. Will buy it based on your helpful feedback.
  9. Tempted to buy it but not sure if it will work on v5.1. Feedback much appreciated.
  10. Bought and installed the Premium Deluxe version and cannot really express how disappointed I was. The actual intefaces are terrible and the setting up of peripherals and cameras is extremely complicated and confusing. Add to this that whenever I tried to fly any of the planes, had all kinds of stability issues and the annoying downward pointing arrow was a real pain in the behind, don't get me started on how complicated and confused the menus and the terminology used in most them is. Trying to set my cameras was a nightmare also and the interfaces for exiting or changing something were less than user friendly. I got the impression that this MSFS2020 has been designed to work in Xbox as a game rather than a simulator, for those people who just want to enjoy all the eye candy and don't care much about stable aircraft systems, etc. Then there is the issue of having to download/stream large amounts of data to get that lovely eye candy. If you also want good performance on a PC be prepared to expend quite a bit of money running into close to £3000 and that's without buying the new peripherals that they recommend that will also add additional hundreds of Pounds Sterling to your total cost. As regards the comment that MSFS2020 is catching up, that is far from true for they haven't even finished and SDK after nearly a year of release and cannot see that happening for perhaps 6 months or more. Needless to say that I agree with the poster on this subject and have myself removed it from my PC until or if ever MSFS2020 becomes a viable choice. Those developers that abandoned P3D and are issuing all these airports for this sim are obviously taking advantage of this new game to make money but very much doubt that their sales are sky rocketing seeing that quite a few of those airports are already being discounted by some vendors, not a good sign for them. This is my honest opinion.
  11. Yes they do occur if the system is not suited to take full advantage of this new version of Prepard3D. I haven't had any VRAM OOMs at all.
  12. Thank you for your reply Zicheng
  13. Would like to buy ZBAA scenery but so far have found only two versions, one is A-A Sceneries and the other WF Scenery Studio. However none appear to be v5 compatible. Would be interested in knowing if anyone has tried either version in v5 and if still compatible. Feedback appreciated.
  14. You need to install either the Free Mesh, the Pilot's or FSGenesis for the area. It is a mesh issue and nothing to do with Vector or anything else.
  15. I don't have any issues and have same scenery as you, what mesh are you using?
