  1. Just purchased QW 787 and tried to apply the Tomato default reflection for it. Everything looks good except the engine inlet cowl (the silver part) at night Picture Here. For those who own and have been flying this aircraft with Tomato shade, is it normal or I am doing something wrong?
  2. I posted the same thing at Flytampa forum ( The developer apparently noticed the problem, but they didn't know why, and no fix yet.

    Prepare3D v4 - Cabin announcements

    Perhaps I always have a copy of FSX in my harddrive so I don't need to do anything special to make it work. It would simply complain it doesn't recognize the flight simulator version when you press 'connect to flight simulator and start logging', but the most of the flight logging, map, and announcement work fine.

    Prepare3D v4 - Cabin announcements

    I am using FS flight keeper for cabin announcement. It supports playing sound files base on flight event, and you can make your own sound profile for different airlines. Although It is a very old program and does not officially support P3D, it works for me in V4.

    This fixes it! Unload the default .Net 3.5 that comes with windows 10, and install the one found in Microsoft website.

    I think windows 10 already comes with .Net 3.5 which is required by UT2 according to I am trying to remove .Net comes with windows and use the installer I downloaded from the internet.

    My P3D V4 doesn't not want to load with UT2 server because it fails to load due to ' {smartassembly} is not available on this computer' error after I did a clean install of window. It had been working fine before and I already did the followings according to my online search on the problem: 1. installing the old simconnect provided in FlightOne forum 2. Install legacy all the simconnect in Prepar3D v4/redist/Interface/ The two methods above don't work for me. I am running out of idea so decide to seek help here. Am I missing others programs that I should install...maybe?

    Are you happy with P3Dv4?

    Overall loving it, OOM is gone. No need to restart the sim, keep looking at the VAS counter, and refuse to change view in order to save VAS. Very stable sim. Bad or to be improved: Dynamics light needs some optimizations. Having FPS issue using 3x 1080p monitors at night with dynamics lighting enabled airport like KSFO HD V2. (currently running on a single 1080 TI)

    you are not alone, same here.
  10. Running at 3 x 1080 screen, at daylight, I can achieve 40 + fps, but at night with dynamics lighting, it drops to 8~10 fps. If I turn off dynamic lighting, FPS back to 30s at night. Anyone has the same issue? That makes me thinking moving to 1080 TI if that ever helps.

    Nvidia 378.78

    Confirmed VAS leaks in 378.78, Tested on a trans-pacific flight, OOM after 2 hours. Loaded the save flight, downgraded to 376.33, successfully crossed the pond without any issue. System: 6700K OC 4.2, EVGA 1080 SC
  12. I take that back, bought another 1080 and tried SLI. Yes, the FPS with heavy cloud was better but it also introduced mirco stutter.
  13. I have a 1080, and have been thinking doing 1080 SLI. With the price drop, I probably will pull the trigger in a week or two. :D
  14. I have been using FSFK for PA, I even customized different profiles for different airlines. But today it suddenly stops working due to no directx 8 or later installed error. Not sure why it happens but since FSFK does not officially support P3D, I wonder if there is any up-to-date add on does the same thing?
