    You'll find the setting in the Cloud Options of AS. P3D low cloud offset adjustment.
  2. Thanks John for sparking a fond memory. Growing up in SLC and had a very good high school friend, who was then leading a project at E&S that simulated the F4 Phantom. He granted me the opportunity for a grand tour of the facility. (Middle to late 80's if I recall correctly.) Anyway, I got the grand tour including a demo flight albeit at a keyboard, not in the dome which was being serviced. They were toying with projection in the helmets (VR back then I guess) but settled with the dome due to other constraints. Also got to view some video promo material of their current work that blew me away at the time. I was already into simming (Spectrum Holobyte Falcon on Amiga or earlier 8088s) and found myself wishing for something similar in my home. I can say that day has arrived when playing my favorite desktop flight sims. Late 80's E&S looks a little dated and wouldn't fit in my home anyway. Mike
  3. Your symptoms are just what I experienced with a CPU failure due to a different root cause. (Video Card came unseated from Mobo - frying CPU). Even down to the Error Code 00 though I have a Asus X99 Deluxe 2 board. Went through all of the steps above, replacing PS, trying Intel Video. New CPU fixed it up.

    My testing with TML TBM etc uncovers a perhaps unique situation on my hardware. I have a six core Intel OC'd to 4.6 with HT on with AM settings to utilize 4 of the cores. Typically 00 00 01 01 01 01 because when I use 00 01 01 01 01 00 I see an increase in texture blur and black textures for a split second using the exact same P3D.cfg, NVI... This blur doesn't make sense to me since I have all cores synched to same multiplier for OC so should be the same. Frankly I thought freeing up core 0 would work better for me but in fact the reverse is true. Pretty consistent too since I have seen the same behavior across multiple OS's (Win 7 forward) OS reinstalls and flight sims (FSX, P3D). I never could figure it out but perhaps some of you have a similar situation strange as it may be. Mike Todd Mongrelf
  6. Hi Hubert, It's my understanding the ASN (Active Sky Next) is a different product than Active Sky 2012. You might want to search for an AS2012 update and try that. Mike
