  1. Thanks Jim, I'll keep it in mind if the issue comes back.
  2. Looks like Defender may be the culprit. I disabled realtime scanning and the issue went away. Anyone see this before?
  3. When I click "Options" the system hangs for a second and crashes to the desktop. This is a new install of Windows 10 and P3D on a new machine. The following is what's in the event viewer: Log Name: Application Source: Application Error Date: 2/9/2019 12:10:48 PM Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100) Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: VM-893721 Description: Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version: 4.4.16.27077, time stamp: 0x5bfdbb35 Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.17763.292, time stamp: 0xb51bba8e Exception code: 0xc0020001 Fault offset: 0x0000000000055549 Faulting process id: 0x2af8 Faulting application start time: 0x01d4c09a480eac44 Faulting application path: D:\Prepar3D v4\Prepar3D.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\System32\KERNELBASE.dll Report Id: 4caa7a1d-ff4e-4d1f-9fbf-d295e2a432c3 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: Event Xml: <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event"> <System> <Provider Name="Application Error" /> <EventID Qualifiers="0">1000</EventID> <Level>2</Level> <Task>100</Task> <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2019-02-09T17:10:48.280272900Z" /> <EventRecordID>2145</EventRecordID> <Channel>Application</Channel> <Computer>VM-893721</Computer> <Security /> </System> <EventData> <Data>Prepar3D.exe</Data> <Data>4.4.16.27077</Data> <Data>5bfdbb35</Data> <Data>KERNELBASE.dll</Data> <Data>10.0.17763.292</Data> <Data>b51bba8e</Data> <Data>c0020001</Data> <Data>0000000000055549</Data> <Data>2af8</Data> <Data>01d4c09a480eac44</Data> <Data>D:\Prepar3D v4\Prepar3D.exe</Data> <Data>C:\Windows\System32\KERNELBASE.dll</Data> <Data>4caa7a1d-ff4e-4d1f-9fbf-d295e2a432c3</Data> <Data> </Data> <Data> </Data> </EventData> </Event>
  4. No one with any opinion on using a USB 3.0 external drive as a scenery location for photoscenery?
  5. Which would be better to install Megascenery photoscenery for use with P3Dv4? I bought the entire US on sale with the drive, and the bits were delivered on the drive. My preference is to just add to the scenery library and run from the USB drive as is. Am I better off installing to an internal SATA drive instead?

    Drive on which to install P3Dv4?

    So no performance related benefits or issues either way? Just potential convenience related to recovery?
  7. New system and first time install of P3Dv4. Have two 2TB SSD drives, so not clear whether to install P3Dv4 on the system drive C: or on the other drive D: Does it matter? Ive also seen recommendations to not use the default file path and use a custom folder off the root like C:\P3Dv4 instead. Does it matter?

    Best terrain mesh for P3D

    Is the Toposim mesh the same as the FSG mesh or has it been redone with new data?
  9. I've been simming for decades, but haven't used P3D.In FSX I used FSGenesis which was purchased more than a decade ago. What is the recommendation for terrain mesh for P3D?
  10. After much looking at reviews and comparing features and prices, I pulled the trigger on the Acer 32" 4ms IPS 4K monitor. It's hard without being able to actually see the picture, but the combination of features and price made it the best option. Thanks for all of the help as I waffled. https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-XB321HK-bmiphz-Widescreen/dp/B01A3N60A2/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1546662559&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=acer+predator+xb321hk
  11. Yes. Liquid cooling and hoping for 5Ghz on all cores.
  12. Ray, so at the risk of saying/asking the same thing again, I'm a little paralyzed making this decision because I have no way to compare or review before pulling the trigger on either. I would love the additional immersion of 4K but am concerned that I'll be back in the days when FSX first came out and everything ran at 19 fps, despite top of the line hardware. So I'm still unsure if the performance difference between QHD and UHD will be significant or not with my new setup. I don't want to have to sacrifice slider quality just to get useable frame rates. Am I overthinking it?
  13. Thanks Ray. Appreciate your opinion and feedback. I'm leaning towards the 32" UHD monitor, even one without g sync, as I think that's the sweet spot. Only concern is don't want to get a new top end system and then have crappy performance based on biting off more video than I can chew, but sounds like you and others are having good luck with 4K, and I tend to run photo scenery which are more easy on fps, and I don't run complex aircraft landing at JFK or LHR (often), so my guess is I should be OK.
  14. Ray, are you running AI aircraft and do you have the sliders maxed or close to max? I would rather run most things maxed out at a lower res than run a bare bones sim at a higher res. My sense is you're not talking about dumbing things down, but wanted to check.
  15. So if I'm hearing you correctly, you are saying that you went with 1440p with a 16:9 monitor, and you are advising against 4K even with high end systems like the one I'll be using. Correct? How do you find 1440p on the 27"?
