  1. Thank you for your post. I think it is more a limitation of the sim itself, Active Sky does its best to interpolate weather from many stations to provide a snapshot of where the cells are, to make it look like real life the weather cells would have to be drawn (texture) making the radar depiction less realsistic. Please ensure that you have detailed and maximum cloud cover checked. If you look at the image from XPlane the image is more closely related to actual Wx returns. You can always reach us at support for more help. Please see the link below my sig. Thank you.

    P3Dv3 -> P3Dv4 graphic settings

    Hi Dave, Thanks for your interesting post above, so your are saying that you set the sim at 1920x1080 but set the TV to 4K 3840x2160? I haven't thought about setting resolutions differently, I always thought the two should match. I would imagine there is less stress on the GPU. I'll give it a try and see if there are any benefits from the setting. I am experiencing buttery smooth performance using Rob A's pinned display "Setup and Configuration" guide, even went out and purchased the latest Samsung 4K TV to give it a try and I am extremely happy with it. Robert

  7. I recently bought a Samsung 49" 4K Tv and set it up as per Rob A's. post pinned at the top. Turns out to be incredibly smooth and the graphics are quite stunning. -Rob
  8. Hello, Thank you for your post. It is not recommended but it was designed to run very well with FSUIPC. FSUIPC is a very powerful tool, many simmers swear by it. Thank you.

  11. Logon to your account at Under "My Orders" you will see PTA for Prepar3D v4 then click view on the right and you will see a link to download your product.
  12. Microsoft connected me with Tier 2 support, they know what the issue is and are working on a fix for the coming update. I have found that booting the sim (server) PC after the client also helps connect both to each other.

    Congratulations to Rob Ainscough!

    Congratulations Rob! Ran into Rob at FSExpo in Vegas last month and had the pleasure of chatting with him for a few moments. Nice man, great to see that AVSIM BOD has made Rob a part of it, great choice! Robert
  14. I have solved the issue but I think only temporarily as a reboot may cause the server PC not to show on the Network page. I hope this helps someone who may eventually have the same issue. Here is what I did: I went to System Properties (type Workgroup in the search window beside the start button), on Computer Name tab - renamed computer workgroup by clicking change. I created a new Workgroup on both PC's with the same name. I Followed the prompts and the computer rebooted. Instructions are here, see option 1: As you all know installing a program on the client and running it there is what most of us like to do, well in my case I could not browse to the server PC because it was not listed. Here are the steps I found to fix the issue: Resolution Method 1: Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP and start the Computer Browser service To resolve this issue, make sure that NetBIOS over TCP/IP is turned on and that the Computer Browser service is running on each computer in the workgroup. To do this, follow these steps. Step 1: Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network and Internet Connections. Click Network Connections. Right-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties. Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties. Click the General tab, and then click Advanced. Click the WINS tab. Under NetBIOS setting, click Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP, and then click OK two times. Click Close to close the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box. Close the Network Connections window. Step 2: Start the Computer Browser service Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. Double-click Services and Applications. Double-click Services. On the right side, right-click Computer Browser, and then click Start. Close the Computer Management window. Regards, Robert
  15. The issue started yesterday after Win10 was updated. On PC1 (client) I have secondary programs that run and PC2 (server) houses the sim. I realized I had network issues as I could no longer see PC2 on the network page of PC1 in Windows explorer yet PC2 does list itself and PC1 on its network page. I tried rolling the Windows Update back, reset the network, reset the modem but that did not help. In desperation I ran a Windows repair program that ran in safe mode and that did not help. I am really at a loss here. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you, Robert
