    Help with P3d V4 4K resolution Dynamic Lights

    Hi Branko, My friend Eric gave me the same feedback in regards to the 1080 performance. He said that it can't deal with 4K and DL. I hope that the code is improved because is quite a loss/shame when you see how clear the font and eveything else about the T7 and NGX is at 4K. Experiences like yours and mine from the past are keeping me from upgrading now. Take care Eduardo

    Help with P3d V4 4K resolution Dynamic Lights

    Hi Iceman, Thank you for taking your time to help me by sharing your experience. I had to turn the resolution down at night if I want to fly with any of the PMDG products because of one setting, a shame because how amazing and crisp the aircraft screens are at 4K. Funny that, since aviation dictates that there shouldn't be a single point of failure on a system. Always have a backup until you are sure you have taken all matters into account and the system is mature. Been a simmer for 17+ years, I learned to be cautious with my settings and especially with the money I spend on hardware because of bad coding or new technology been applied prematurely (my belief and opinions, nothing else). Not implying that any of the PMDG products is poorly coded, talking about FSX release here with it been advertised as great visuals but no hardware could keep up at that point. I believe in evolution and that the new feature will become something we won't be able to live without and working in an sector when change management is a must, the first release of a new tech and completely disable the old one? That's a dead horse and not going to beat it. It appears from my research that the issue is the GPU that can't deal with the heavy calculations behind the DL. - My solution is to wait and see how the new updates come about - Use 4K for daytime flights - Reduce my resolution when taking off or landing at night (can deal and adjust my eyes quicker to lower resolution compared to adjusting to spending £600+ on a GPU) - Planning to upgrade my PC later next year, till then cross my fingers and toes Happy landings to you all!

    Help with P3d V4 4K resolution Dynamic Lights

    Hi Elias, Thanks for replying! I've tested at 1440 and is very smooth with great performance. I lose part of my screen. I've also set AA off and autogen to 0 without sucess at 4K. There might not be a silver bullet for this one.

    Help with P3d V4 4K resolution Dynamic Lights

    Hi Chris, Can I request that you read my post again? At no point I’ve mentioned that PMDG requested that I lower my resolution. The message above indicates that is based on information from forums. I’ve also mentioned that the support request is still ongoing. Before responding with what sounds like a not very constructive tone, I would request that you read the message one more time and put yourself on my shoes. Regards Eduardo
  5. Hi all, I'm not trying to restart the debate abut DL frames rates and who has the highest Fps but I need help setting the sim so it acceptable to fly at night :) What I am trying is to understand from other users with a similar setup (4K especially), if any managed to use the sim without resorting not switching on lights during the nigh, fly only during the day or disable DL. My setup is i5 6600K 4.5Ghz, GTX980Ti, 16GB DDR4 and 44in 4K monitor. After several test and been told that I have to lower my already low resolution is starting to cause frustration and anger. From all the posts about the subject it appears and my own tests confirm, if you use a 1080 resolution you should be ok with DL. The fps impact isn't as significant as if you set it up to 4K. During the day the resolution is 60Fps+(about 40 at FBeam KSFO HD) and about 35Fps at night at a busy airport with the dynamic lights off, becoming 15-10Fps with the lights on. Its is becoming clear that people in the same situation are been accused of having cracking up the settings. Can anyone help, since I could not get it sorted when opened (still open) a support ticket? Regards Eduardo Teixeira
