    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    Worked for me. I think it was just a over-site.

    PER LM You can try adding the following config setting to your Prepar3D.cfg [sound] section. [sound] time_constant=0;

    From 3 HD Monitors to one big UHD TV - suggestions?

    You are going to love the color of the Sony's. I ditched my Samsung 40" 4k for the Sony 43" what a difference! please post your experience with three 4k displays when you get them. Josh
  4. You will be good with Crosswinds with a laminated floor and roller on your chair. The movement is easy. You will have to find a way to attache them. I use a piece of plywood. They cost about $350 but will last a lifetime. I like to get VFRuddos but there like $1200 so the crosswinds are a good compromise.
  5. You will love the Sony I just got the 43" 4k one (cost almost twice as much as the Samsung but as you say the best color). I'm interested to see how 3 4K displays work as I want to go that route. I assume you have a 2080ti as my 1080ti cant do it. Josh
  6. I don't have that issue anymore. I have a Saitek switch panel and had that happening a few times and found it to be the switches themselves so I use some contact cleaner and cleaned them. I don't know if that is similar to your issue but it fixed mine.

    I agree with you on proper setup is a must. I have both 43" 4k TV and also a 32" pro graphics monitor and P3d looks amazing on both. One isn't better than the other for flight sim. I would never use a big TV for graphic design but for flight sim Yes. Save your money and get the TV. By the way the text on my 43"Sony is as clear and crisp as can be and I can also see every speck and detail in great clarity. I personally have two computers one for flight sim and the other for graphic design work and usual computer stuff. Now if I only had one I would go for the monitor. Josh

    Sparse/slow autogen loading in P3Dv4

    I do see that line especially in big cities and now that things are sharper its more prevalent. I believe in the past and I also complained about it just what your talking about. I believe there answer was it gave better performance. I believe this all started on V3 and I hated it but now with the new tweeks I don't see it anymore except in big city's. Last night I did a flight from KMRY to SFO as was amazed on how far the autogen went. I was just on top of the Santa Cruz mountains and I could see the SFcity and all the autogen was complete from San Jose to the GG Bridge and as I got over Silicon Valley the lights of Marin were visible along with the top of the GG bridge.

    TV's work great for flight sim and I wouldn't be concerned with pixel size in 4k. I have a 43" Sony and flight sim looks as good as ever. I don't use this computer and TV for anything else other than Flight Siming. 43" or 49 " is just about right.

    Sparse/slow autogen loading in P3Dv4

    Its funny that I don't experience any of the issues above and if anything 4.4 works wonders on my system. All my autogen is there no poping or drawing in. The black textures when looking around are just about a thing of the past. P3D v4.4 I think is the best thing to happen in a long time for me. I'm really sorry that others are having issues but I don't think they would have released it if it wasn't ready. Anyhow I hope it all works out in the end for everyone and they find a solution for there problems .

    P3D running but CPU not running at max speed

    Sometimes the old fashion ways seem to work in this digital age.

    On a side note its always good to take photos of your bios screens for future reference. Josh

    P3DV4.4 - Tweaks to CFG, Why?

    I use those settings too and wow. I also haven't noticed any performance issues! If anything its working better. Its like they gave us a early Christmas present everything is pretty and nice.

    P3DV4.4 - Tweaks to CFG, Why?

    I changed mine to like 95000.0000 and now I don't have as much black texture loading when looking around which is one of the best features of the current build besides the photoreal improvement. Josh
  15. I haven't played with it much yet but it was related to photo scenery being to bright and washed out. I went back to default shaders and photoreal looked real good. I will play with it later today and report back. Josh
