  1. Rick, I started with fly-inside but switched to P3D when they made it available native and they fixed some of the bugs that were inhibitors to its use. Maybe its time to try FI again, I'll download the latest release (hopefully there's some performance improvements). Howard
  2. All, I have P3Dv4 running with an 8Gb GTX1070 . When running P3d through my monitor with live traffic, scenery add-ons, AS weather and 3rd party aircraft I get pretty good frame performance. Using my Rift, it typically drops 10-20% +/-. Is there anyone who sims and has a configuration using the Rift where you get consistently better performance in the say 20+ FPS area? I've been thinking about adding a second graphics card and converting my system to SLI graphics. Any of you have any positive or negative experiences either way? Thanks, Howard
  3. 747-800, APU Running, starter switches 3 and 4 selected, fuel cutoff switches set to run for engines 3 & 4. Autostart confirmed on lower EICAS, engines spooling but no start. The -400 would be running by now, am I missing something silly? Howard Rhett
  4. PMDG, Any fix since this was posted more than a month ago? Should we regress to the previous version of v4? Howard Rhett
  5. Okay, got it. Thank you Harry. I hadn't used that option before. Howard
  6. I do have it and it is installed Harry. AEC settings? Is that in P3D settings Harry? I uninstalled it under FTX Central and it seems to have mitigated the problem. I'm a bit disappointed that Vector (a v4 certified product) wouldn't be compatible with other v4 products. Am I missing something here?

  7. Dear All, Has anyone encountered displaced terrain where tarmacs, buildings, etc. are below a clipped plane? I've come across it before but don't recall the fix. https://drive.google.com/file/d/13WVt8IvhHHNGS0bWthxYeqZVTvaN-izw/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-nlVLFEiTMF32WzaNmPWgsJ6niTAoEmG/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/13OmL8RGWHqTaoLop78dDJPPfIrjCMYbu/view?usp=sharing Thanks in advance, Howard
  8. Rick, YES, it was HDR lighting. It was enabled. Thanks so much! Happy flying this weekend. Howard Rhett
  9. Thanks for the feedback Rick. I had a mistype, I actually have v4.2 installed. Howard
  10. Can anyone help me with this one? Doesn't seem to matter which aircraft is selected, I've seen it before but don't recount the resolution. P3dV2. Thanks in advance, Howard https://drive.google.com/open?id=1rdZHEvZ45v8UWZbmWpVkgdrY94LSUvqe
  11. Decided to reinstall v4 from scratch Will do Bob. Howard Rhett
  12. No Elfyn, I'm not but that's never been a problem before. I uninstalled v4 and did a complete reinstalled. The skeleton problem went away but the 737 registration, some of the CDU fields under options still don't show, engines don't shut down and controls still don't work. I haven't gone through an entire checklist with the -47 & -77 but they seem to be okay thus far. Howard
  13. Dear All, I've been struggling with getting P3Dv4 and PMDG to work. I reset Windows 10 a few weeks back and reinstalled everything from a clean registry. Here's my problems: With the 737-800/900 base I am requested to register it every time I run the simulator Once up, controls don't work, CDU displays have missing information, HUD shows no graphics For both the 777 and 737 (747 doesn't exhibit this problem) I get interior graphics on the exterior. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_MR6r7znLqsRnByUW5ocmpYckU https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_MR6r7znLqsX3htYTBMdldtRUk Any help would be welcomed.
