  1. I think I'm also having this problem, the camera keeps resetting to 1.5...
  2. I probably need to have a look at upgrading my MBO and CPU.. And also monitors too as I would eventually like to go 4k at somepoint. Still need to properly read the thread I found though.
  3. EDIT: I’ve just found an exact post that I’ve done previously asking the same question before I upgraded my memory so moderators feel free to delete this thread. Apologies
  4. After just a quick look around, I think I need to focus on upgrading my MBO and Processor. As I’m fairly new to actually upgrading new bits in a current desktop system, I’d like to make sure whatever MBO I upgrade to, the CPU will also fit too. Any and all advice appreciated.
  5. Hello everyone, So recently I upgraded my RAM to a slightly faster speed up to 3200MHz using Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 C16 (2x8GB). After realising that my MBO BIOS was on a very old version, I have now updated this. However, I really haven’t felt or seen any difference in FPS purely from changing this which I was slightly hoping for. My system is now as follows: Intel Core i7-6700k Skylake @ 4.2GHz Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Corsair Hydro H80i V2 CPU Cooler Asus Z170 Pro Gaming MBO Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 3200MHz C16 (2x 8GB) 512GB Samsung SM961 M.2 PCIe SSD (Windows 10 OS) 1TB Samsung 850 EVO SSD (P3D and other Applications/Games/Utilities that I play/use) 4TB SSHD Hybrid Drive (My main harddrive for all my documents, photos, everything! Backed up through BackBlaze) EVGA GQ 80 Plus Gold 850W Modular PSU NEC EA241WM Monitor x2 Is there anything that anyone would recommend to change (apart from the monitors, they are huge and heavy!) that could give me a bit more FPS? My system isn’t awful I just feel at stages at busy airports with nice add-one I’d like to see a bit more than just 10-15FPS. Many thanks, Tristan
  6. Hi Everyone, Happy New Year to everyone and hope you all had a good Christmas! I am posting this as I believe I've posted this before but I don't think I've been able to fix the problem. After flying nearly 4 hours today to Sheremetyevo Airport in Russia with the new FS Labs A321, when approaching the airport I noticed that the surrounding areas were very flat with no tree's, building etc showing. This was quite a disappointment as it just made it unrealistic but however when on final approach, they all started to appear albeit very slowly in front of me. This got me thinking that maybe something could be reducing the rate at which the 3D objects in my sim are generated.. and therefore is there anyway I can increase this at all? It seems like it's going back to the days of 32-bit systems and I'd rather have all the towns and city buildings showing ahead of time before I get there rather than loading up in chunks on final approach. Any advice would be most appreciated. Kind Regards, Tristan
  7. Hi Ray, Thank you I really appreciate your input too. Apologies that I didn't give all the information to start off with. I run Windows 10 on my current PC and have 2 x NEC MultiSync EA241WM Monitors. I only use P3D on one monitor and the other monitor for other things such as Navigraph etc. I do have a third monitor which is back home in the UK and ultimately at some point when I can I would like to use all three monitors for the full wrap around effect. It's just interesting to hear that I'd need a whole new computer pretty much to get the performance I still require, and also I've never built a PC before, I've only just bought one. I know some people have also got 2k or 4k monitors. What is the benefit to this? Better frames/quality etc? I don't even know if my NEC monitors now support that. I hadn't thought about selling my system, purely because I thought it was good for the next few years. Many thanks,
  8. Hi Greg, Thanks for your reply. You stated about DDR4 memory, which I already have. What did you mean by this exactly? Thanks!
  9. Hello chaps, Thank you for getting back to me. Apologies I did not state what sim I’m using, it’s Prepar3D V4.5. I didn’t realise I couldn’t just buy a CPU and replace it.. without buying a whole new motherboard with it too. So the question I ask now then is, how do I increase the performance from my current PC so that I can just get a few more FPS especially at night time. Meanwhile, I’ll investigate the various components I would need if I was to upgrade my system in the near future. It’s a shame though because this desktop cost a huge amount of money when I bought it. Between £2,500-£3,000! I don’t run 4K monitors, at least I don’t think I do too. Many thanks, Tristan
  10. Hi everyone, I very rarely if at all post in these forums but I feel this area is going to hopefully give me the best answer, advice or at least point me in the right direction. A few years ago I purchased a new system for myself from UK company ‘Chillblast’. This was a Matt Davies PC and built especially for Flight sim and it really has done well since I’ve had it but I’ve noticed it’s ever so slowly getting lower FPS as of course scenery and aircraft add-ons get better and require more processing and/or power. My current system is as follows: Intel i7-6700k Skylake at 4.0-4.2 overclocked by 20%. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Graphics Card Corsair Hydro H80i CPU Cooler Asus Z170 Pro Gaming motherboard 16gb DDR4 Memory. So those are the key components. Of course, if anyone needs to know more please do say so. So I was look at upgrading firstly the CPU to something like a i7 9700k.. Now, this is the first time that I would’ve changed/replaced single components. In the past I used to just wait until I needed a full new system but I said to myself with this desktop, I’d like to keep it and just update the components inside as and when they need it. I just want my sim to be packing a little bit more of a punch than just the 10-15FPS it has around heavy sceneries and I can understand that it is that low but if I invested in something that would increase those Fps then great! If anyone could post suggestions down below, that would be most appreciated. I use the sim mainly for FS Labs stuff and PMDG. Using Orbx regions and a multitude of add-on scenery. Many thanks,
  11. Hi Guys, I'm getting this error when installed the Content on V4.4, is there any fix for it? Stating the cabinet file is not digitally signed. Indicates the file may be corrupt? Regards,
  12. Hi guys, I’ve been trying to use the replay function within Chaseplane recently to record some landings and takeoffs etc. however it’s not really working as I thought it would. I know the function is still be improved and updated I appreciate that, but when I see others use it on their videos, I can never do the same. It says that markers are shown whenever flaps or gear or anything else is used, however mine does not show those. The flaps are not animated or gear in the replay function. For example, if I take off and then use the replay function for that takeoff, the displays on the aircraft are wrong and don’t show what I saw on takeoff, and not animations work. Is this normal? And if not, how do I fix it? Thanks,
  13. Hi Guys, I'm using Chaseplane with Prepar3D V4 and really like using the Middle Mouse button to pan around the cockpit. However, this has randomly stopped working even though it's selected in the options. Can you help me to resolve this at all? Thanks!
