    yeap i tried this with also mip map enabled and AA up to 8xMSAA and it is still not good. I cant go to SS due to my 1070....In their forums its something that is mentioned by some people so i think they will fix it somehow.

    747-8 & 787

    Yes, indeed. No LNAV issues for me and no weather radar CTD also. They have brought out a hotfix for the nosedive also. What it really keeps me from flying all the time with it are the fonts!! They are almost not readable and iam talking on the fonts for the MCP etc not the ones that show up in the displays. Only if you zoom in they are clear.

    Some recents from the new 747-8 and the updated 787...
  6. So either EFB or RESHADE for the time being.. Same here, even IE11 saved the login credentials the box appears every time.
  7. its not dxgi.dll for all...you may have d3d9.dll or as i did , opengl32.dll
  8. Maybe its my case too. But i cant find the dxgi.dll in p3d folder....maybe opengl32.dll?

    Cant find 747-8 in vehicle list.

    If you are sleepy like me, jsut check if you have your FAVORITES clicked in vehicle screen 🙂
  10. Uninstalled base package and installed it again. Loading up P3d v4.3 i can see the base 747 and operates normally (without asking for license activation). Installed the extension everything ok, installed a couple of liveries also. Loaded P3D but 747-8 is nowhere to be seen. Did the above 3 times no result. Any ideas?
  11. ...but but but.....i think it is in Beta.....

    REX SkyForce, PTA, ASP4, ENVSHADE, ENVTEX

    ASP4 - Weather Engine. Different options for different systems (especially for cloud/visibility opotions). REX SF - You can use this for all textures. PERSONALLY i use REX SF for everythign except: Sky Colors (from 1coder.ru), Sun Effect (Search for simple sunmod in avsim). PTA - I tried around 5-6 times to move to tomato but i stick with PTA, mostly because i like flying more than screenshoting. Dumped ENVTEX due to lack of shader customization. In your position i would start with REX SF - Choose whatever you like and then go to ASP4. Read the manual to find a sweet spot for settings or ask someone with similar flying preferences (IFR/VFR) and similar machine. Then try some PTA if you dont want to fiddle much. P.S. And try to keep the f/o KPI above 1 f/o = Flying/Optimizing.... 🙂 I am also for reality looks:
  13. Nasty weather at Athens today....
  14. If your machine is the one in your signature then do not bother trying tomato as it is not strong for that. find your sweet spot with the sliders and envshade and start flying. If you stick on tuning you will end up tuning more than flying. Trust me i know what i'm saying 🙂
