  1. A friend of mine just had the same error for him (GTX1060) and same situation as I’m in, it only has happened after he updated to 4.4. Not blaming the 4.4 update, just putting that out there in case it’s relative good info to have.

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    I'll test that too. I had the opposite happen in earlier tests but that was a while ago. Here is a screen shot of what I'm experiencing both with blurries and autogen drawing. I currently have: [GRAPHICS] ENABLE_MEMORY_OPTIMIZATION=0 MAX_TEXTURE_REQUEST_DISTANCE=640000.000000 [SCENERY] SCENERY_DRAW_DISTANCE=32000.000000 [TEXTURE] TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=9

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    Man, I've been plagued with problems since updating to 4.4. It's a bummer because I got one flight in with the new update and was blown away. Now I am getting blurries when I fly. Worse than ever before. I am running the TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=9 tweak and my sim settings are on high. My GPU (1080) is only running at 70% Memory usage and 60% GPU usage. Any suggestions on how to get the sim back to being crisp?
  4. I think this may be my solution and is something I noticed too when I reseated the card. It’s a heavy card so I used extra props to hold it up. So far it’s been working. I find it kind of odd that it just started to begin the day I did the 4.4 update and not having moved my tower in months. But hoping it’s a possible solution!

    PFPX 2.0 OUT

    Heads up, doing a quick scan through their forums it looks like while installing, it will restart your pc without prompting or asking. I haven't ran the installer yet but I've seen two people writing in saying they nearly lost some important work! Anyone have a changelog for the update?
  6. I thought I saw something about it being a part of the update. And I honestly wouldn’t think it would be what my problems were. But I also think it’d be kind of coincidental if the nvidia rep said to update it. It could very well have been just a loose connection or dust or something, I’m not sure but so far between repairing my framework and reseating the GPU, I’ve been having better luck. Fingers crossed...
  7. After some testing and talking with an nVidia rep, I may have solved my problem... I hope. Before talking to the nVidia rep, I unplugged my GPU and reseated it. Then I contacted the rep before testing my sim (whoops) and they looked over some windows info they had me send them. They suggested I download and run the .NET Framework update (4.7.2). I did and it stated I already had it installed so I selected the repair option. Well, after that, I've been running the sim at the same spot, same aircraft, and same day/time where I had my crashes before and so far nothing! My GPU usage is back to it's normal 67% too. So I'm not sure if this will be a fix, but fingers crossed as so far it's lasting longer than before! I also don't know if I am allowed to include a link to the .NET Framework update.
  8. A little update..I tried 397.64 drivers after the DDU in safe mode, but now I am getting 100% GPU usage and a stuttering slide show, even at very low settings and the default piper cub. I have never hit 100% GPU usage before with my high settings. I also deleted shaders, and the p3d.cfg, no change. I haven't done anything to the clocks yet and I'm not wanting to touch those until I can at least get the sim running smooth again (frame rate wise) but seems I am just making things worse. Before I was never below 25fps in hard areas like LAX/SFO. This is frustrating because I loved what I saw with 4.4 and the only flight I did (LAS-SLC) ended with a HUNG error which seems to happen in the SLC valley, didn't have it happen for me anywhere else when jumping to different airports. And now the stuttering slideshow has me baffled. A lame question but how do I know if I have a factory overclocked card? I will be doing a complete uninstall and fresh install after Christmas as I'm getting a new (larger) SSD for the sim.
  9. I'm having this same problem. I created the other thread topic referenced in here, so I'll just continue in here with you guys. I ran the DDU in safe mode, updated to the latest driver, and still the same crash. GPU (GTX 1080) usage was only 72%, GPU Memory 81%, and voltage 72%. Nothing anymore than it's been for all of my other time in the sim. I already have TdrDelay=8 too. I'm really stumped on this as I never had this before 4.4.

    Error after 4.4 update

    Hey guys, I've been loving the 4.4 update, but I keep getting an error that crashes the sim that I have never had before. I did some research but I'm not finding many solutions. Has anyone had this happen and know what causes it/fixes it? Not sure if this makes any difference, but I've noticed it more often (almost exclusively) at PacSim SLC with Megascenery Earth Utah and PMDG 748. System: i5-2500k 4.5Ghz GTX 1080 16GB DDR3 RAM GeForce Driver 417.01 Thanks, Kyle Hatch

    P3d replicates my life! Wonderful!

    I'm in about the same boat as you! The last year was my first time flying internationally. And the first time being on something bigger than that A320/737! I've been able to do LAX-Tokyo-Malaysia-Thailand (3 airports within) and back. Then did SFO-AMS-INV/EDI-DUB and reverse. Ending off with LAX-CUN. A lot of which was on the 787-8/9, A330, A350 and 744! It's also been the first year I've spent so much time in the sim exploring Europe. Mostly Netherlands, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, and those areas. And flying the routes before and after the RW journeys in the same aircraft makes it that much more enjoyable. It's been a lot of fun getting out of the usual USA flying! Loved the post and seeing the enthusiasm!

    Weather at arrival

    I've noticed somewhat similar discrepancies. I can't remember if it was at the arrival airport or departure. Or both...

    Where are the Airport Environment Sounds?

    Awesome! Looking forward to giving it a try!

    Where are the Airport Environment Sounds?

    Does this sound pack only replace UTLive sounds and not any user aircraft sounds?

    UTOPIA Take Off Calculator for QW 787

    Does the upload take a while to show in the library? I'm not seeing anything there.
