    Ground textures gets more blurry the further I fly

    I don't use it for general flying. I only use it (at 4x) for taking screenshots - giving me a nice large image that scales down well in Photoshop, as its interpolation routines are good. So ... I get good performance while stooging around, but can still capture great looking shots (in pause mode) then use Chaseplane to compose.

    Well blow me down!!! Yes - I could set up all sorts of wacky parameters (but I had to disable DSR first). Needless to say, my monitor didn't like anything but its default. All very interesting all the same!

    Thanks, Michael! I've learned something today 🙂

    Thanks! I have an LCD, so don't get that refresh rate. I just wondered if I was missing some black magic!

    Good to hear that it's not just me then! I also struggle with a couple of the later FTX sceneries - namely Northern & Southern Germany. They're both (unavoidably) very object heavy, so I have to tweak things down a little.

    My monitor only appears to have a setting for 60Hz. I've no way of checking what it *actually* runs at, so I'm working with 60Hz. I did notice some stutters at 31fps but, to be honest, with my ridiculous eye-candy settings, I struggle to get anywhere near 30. So ... I set mine to a lowly 20fps (going by 60Hz/3) and I haven't noticed any bad pauses or stutters. Others with better systems and/or GPUs will laugh at my 20fps, but I'm telling you - it's pretty smooth and I hadn't realised how much pleasure I was losing by not seeing my (maxed out) scenery in all its glory all the time. All in all, I'm a happy camper, thanks to this thread. That said, I don't think LM should be let off the hook.

    Oh dear! I don't run anything like TrackIR, so poor frame rates (I get around 15!!!!) don't actually interfere to much with my eye-candy-rich simming style.. I understand that this problem may have actually got worse in P3Dv4 (and LM should fix it), but is reducing some of your autogen settings an option at all? I do agree, though ... you shouldn't *have to* do that.

    You'll be fine. I have a GTX970 too. What CPU do you have (mine's an i7 @ 3.40GHz)? Actual frame rates will depend (as ever) on your autogen sliders and detail settings - but setting the TFR to something sensible will definitely cure the "disappearing autogen" problem - without too much of an impact on your overall frame rate. Believe me - I just switched from "unlimited" myself and it *definitely* helps. My scenery stays wonderfully updated all the time - from the beginning of a flight right to the very end - regardless of my detail and weather (clouds) settings. BTW: If people here would like to create FPS graphs, I've [only] just discovered the free/donationware SimLauncherX (by Maarten Boelens) to work well. It's an excellent piece of programming all round. After only using it for an hour, I already feel moved to sending him a donation.

    How/where are you setting 30Hz (genuine question)? Adam.

    For those interested in "Ideal Flight" for P3D, the link is here: http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=idealflightpro4 or here: http://www.codelegend.com/idealflight/default.htm Not cheap, but it does appear to have a bucketload of features (over and above the diagnostic graph-making).

    Steve - what did you use to get the graphs? Looks handy! Looks like setting Vsync via NVI is a slightly better bet than in P3D ... is that correct? Adam.

    It was Rob's painstaking video that finally persuaded me away from my long-time "Unlimited" TFR setting - which I've been using for a fair while, as it gave me a fairly decent frame-rate and was *silky-smooth*. Like many people here, I was beginning to get frustrated by this autogen [not] re-drawing problem. Has it got worse with progressive P3D "updates", I wonder? I used to get around this by re-loading the scenery (I have key mapped for it) but found I was having to do it increasingly often. Anyway - I bit the bullet, and am so glad I did! My system is too old and jaded (just like me!) to benefit from any FFTF tweaks, so it's left at the default 0.33, with TFR set to 31 (my monitor is 60Hz) and VSync set to on. I'm getting a few "long frames" (micro-pauses) but I can live with that, as I can now enjoy full-blown autogen throughout the length of the trip. Thanks to all that have contributed to this interesting (and rewarding!) thread - and especially to Rob . Adam.

    Aerosoft Airbus P3Dv4 problems

    There are a few threads here on Avsim about this: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/137842-airbus-goes-nuts/ http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/137687-high-climb-rate-and-stall/ The impression I get is that any injection of data (like a weather update) upsets the autopilot code timing and it loses the plot - never to recover. My current theory is that it's somehow SimConnect related. The Aerosoft team are struggling to to replicate the problem and one of the things they're suggesting is a completely fresh P3Dv4.3 install - not an update of an update. This is is why I'm wondering whether remnants of older versions of SimConnect are somehow kicking in. Whatever the reason - the Aerosoft Airbus is the only aircraft of all the "complex" aircraft that I run to give me problems.

    PTA window closes after start

    Oooh dear!!! Looks like your firewall isn't the problem (now) - or you wouldn't be able to even start PTA. Have you checked Windows the crash logs? Windows Defender Firewall is definitely off?

    Rob - food for thought!!! Thanks for taking all the time and trouble to compile this video - much appreciated! Adm.
