  1. Yea, I get all the weird stuff when it comes to Flight Simming, hardware, software or whatever. Anyway I got rid of the Thrustmaster software, and the problem seems to have been solved, for now at least. I think there was a conflict somewhere causing erroneous signals which resulted in the uncommanded rudder movement I was seeing. I'm still using the twist function on the joystick as a tiller on the ground, and the rudder pedals for flight. I just have make sure that I'm only inputting one of them at a time. Thanks.
  2. The driver I have installed is more recent than the one mentioned in the thread. I've gone through calibration process over and over, with no improvement. Also, my rudder pedals are similarly effected. It looks like there's no real permanent fix for this problem. I guess you get what you pay for, and the manufacturer will never admit there's a design flaw in their product. Thanks for the reply.
  3. I have a 3 piece Thrustmaster set which includes a Throttle, Rudder pedals and Joystick. Most of the time they all work well together. There are times, however, when the aircraft rudder pedals start moving on their own. During taxi it causes the airplane to suddenly veer to the right or left, and inflight the nose oscillates from side to side. When this happens it's nearly impossible to calibrate the rudder. The rudder slider on the Thrustmaster control panel calibration scale will not respond properly when twisting the joystick, which I use as a tiller while taxiing. I've tried adjusting the sensitivity and null zones in the P3D control panel, but nothing seems to help. Here's the weird part, if I move my hand near the joystick, I can see the airplane rudder move, (not the rudder pedals themselves) , even though I don't actually touch the joystick. Same with the rudder pedals, if I move my foot close to the pedals, the rudder in the airplane will deflect. I'm not aware of any proximity sensors on these components. I use PMDG aircraft. I have VR disabled, have no anti virus or firewall, have the latest drivers for the devices, and am not using Thrustmaster Target software or FSUIPC. OS Windows 10. Is anybody else out there seeing this kind of strange behavior. It's got me stumped. Thanks. Pete Locascio
  4. I guess what several us would like to know, is why is this happening with the new build? The previous one worked fine. I did a complete reinstall/clean install of this new version. Sometimes the sim will start and sometimes it won't, which makes this even more strange.
  5. Run the Flight Beam troubleshooter in the Flight Beam manager. It worked for me and I didn't have to delete files. The troubleshooter does all that is needed.
  6. I'm not sure what you mean here. Are you saying this will remove all add-ons? I sure hope not since it would take days to reinstall everything that was working fine before this hotfix.
  7. I tried that and saw that FTX was activating the ORBX scenery, but I still have solid black taxiways with no markings, and most ramp areas are the same solid black at all default airports. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
  8. Recently I've noticed that taxiways and ramp areas at stock airports all over the world are now black instead of the default textures I saw originally with P3Dv4. This is true on the ground and inflight. I can see pavement markings around the gates, though. I've had lots of ORBX, and pay ware scenery products installed for a long time, and never saw this before. I can't think of anything I did that caused this to happen, so I'm not sure what went wrong. I'm hesitant to start moving items up and down in the scenery list for fear of making things worse. I've tried to find related posts, but the ones that I do find that are somewhat similar, offer conflicting ideas on how to fix the problem. So, what works for one guy may cause additional problems for the other guy. Anyone else seeing this sort of anomaly? Thanks. Pete Locascio
  9. Does anyone know if there is some kind of addon for P3D that accurately depicts star positions in the night sky, instead of just random placement? Thanks.
  10. I had the same issue. It's fixed now.
  11. Thanks. By the way you're always so polite!
  12. Same here. I had a new computer built with all the latest stuff. It ran great until I installed some FSDT products. It seems like too much of a coincidence that all my problems started after installing these products. I uninstalled all of them including GSX, and the addon manager, which I really dislike. The load times are much shorter now when switching airports, usually less than a minute. I lost a bunch of nice looking scenery in the process though. I'll have to do a flight to see if the "blurries" are gone. Thanks.
  13. I tried using a TV for a flight Sim monitor a couple of years ago, and the colors were really dull and washed out. I'm now using a Dell 42" 4K monitor and it looks really nice. How do the colors look on your 55" Samsung? Thanks.
  14. Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the 1080ti, if I can find one. If the 2000 series becomes available, I'll probably go for that if it seems like it performs better. The link you posted doesn't seem to work, but I'll keep trying. Thanks.
  15. I've been doing a lot of reading about what the best video card setup for P3Dv4 is. At this point I'm totally confused, and don't really know what I should do. Nobody seems to agree on anything. There's a lot of talk about the 2000 series cards from Nvidia, but I've seen nothing official about a release, only speculation. You can't even get a 1080ti from Nvidia because they're always out of stock. I'm having a new flight simulator computer built in June, but I still don't know what to do about a video card setup. Is a 1080ti SLI the best way to go, or is a Titan better, or maybe something else? I don't mind spending the bucks, if I can get a lot of horsepower. I'd appreciate any suggestions from people who are using high end configurations, as to what they feel is best. I have a 42" 4K Dell monitor, and a whole lot of high end addons and scenery. I'd like to be able to use higher settings, and dynamic lighting without the frame rates going into the single digits. I'm currently using a GTX970 and it really struggles at times. Thanks.
