    Does 1/2 refresh rate work?

    Hi Bert, I think I'm getting just as confused as you are... 😄 Actually, I have seen a video on YouTube describe an issue with autogen rendering when using unlimited frame rates internally (Target Frame Rate or TFR). This was for version 4.3 and 4.2, so I'm not sure if this also applies to 4.4. Here is the link to the video: Kind regards,

    Does 1/2 refresh rate work?

    Hi Steve, First many thanks for the countless tips and technical information you're giving here on these forums! Since the internal P3D limiter is not a real limiter, is it adviseable to use both the internal and an external limiter (like RTSS)? So say you have a 60hz refresh rate (because the monitor does not support a lower rate), I would then use RTSS to lock at say 29 or 29,5 and in P3D I would set the limiter at 29 (no fractions) with Vsync on + TB off. Kind regards,

    Thanks to all for the tips!
  4. Hi, Has anyone using the Milviz MD530 got the ADF radio working? If so, would like to know how you did it. Thanks! Kind regards,

    Thanks for the info! Will have a look at the RXP then. Kind regards,
  6. Hi, Just wanted some advice on external avionics software on the market. I'm thinking of purchasing one of these. Can anyone advice me on which one to choose? As far as I can see, Mindstar is the only one offering an update subscription for the navigational database. Is this correct? Also from the info on their website their product seems not be compatible with v4.4 of P3D! Is this also correct? Thanks for the tips! Kind regards

    Well Rick, can't really say as I have switched off all AI traffic (except a little road traffic) to save resources. P3Dv4 requires more resources than previous versions, especially when using a multi-screen setup. Using a single screen setup, everything is very smooth. Kind regards, Dave

    Hi, I am indeed using P3Dv4 (v4.4) and what have I endorsed? I've also got all the Orbx stuff installed. I don't use any AI traffic, so that's maybe why I haven't run into any problems with this scenery yet. Kind regards, Dave

    Hi, I purchased this last month. I haven't noticed anything unusual with this scenery and I'm quite happy with it. Which posts are you referring to? There is a fix available which I also installed with the scenery. It's a XML file which has something to do with SODE. Is this what you're referring to? Kind regards Dave
  10. Hi, Thanks for the information. As I'm unable to set 30Hz on any of the 3 panels, I'm sticking to 60Hz on all three. The lowest I could get was 40Hz on my primary display only. I've now taken a completely different approach and although it would not seem logical, it gives me the best results so far - smoothest and minor stutter occaisionally. Basically in P3Dv4 I've set unlimited frame rate and turned off vsync and TB. In NI I've set frame rate limiter to 58 FPS (v2 frame rate limiter) with TB on and vsync set to 1/3 refresh rate. I will also try your tip of using multiple P3D configs for specific types of flying during the next couple of weeks. Thanks again! Kind regards
  11. Hi, I've noticed that I'm getting slightly higher frame rates when using P3Dv4.4 in windowed mode as opposed to "full-screen" mode. Can anyone explain the technicalities of this to me please? I have understood from various postings in this forum that in P3Dv4 the "full-screen" mode is not a real full-screen mode as in other shooter games, but is basically a windowed mode with only the title bars removed from the windows. If this is the case, how is it that I'm seeing lower frame rates when using the "full-screen" mode? Surely both modes should yield the same frame rates, or am I missing something? Thanks! Kind regards, Dave
  12. Hi Alan, Using three screens with a group view.
  13. Hi, I'm currently using P3Dv4 (v4.4) on a multi-display system. I've read a lot of advice here on configuring the refresh rate of the monitors to obtain a stutter free experience in the sim. Problem is that I can only adjust the refresh rate on the primary monitor. I can only use 60Hz on the other two monitors. Will adjusting the refresh rate only on the primary monitor be sufficient? Kind regards, Dave
  14. On build 6909 with P3Dv4.4 and having the same problem. Ticket is logged (#NTL-979-65849), but they haven't yet found a solution to this issue. 😪 Have also sent them the windows event log entries of the app crash that has been logged for ASP4.
  15. Thanks for the information, Vic!
