  1. So all is back to normal now. All I am aware that I did was delete the program shortcut off of the desktop and launch from the program's folder directly. Odd, but satisfying to be back up and running.
  2. I think something is just plain wrong.
  3. Ahhh 5+ minutes. I'll wind my watch, go do something for 20 or so and check back. But... I'm skeptical.
  4. That is informative, and one reason to wait to update P3D!
  5. Ok! Will stand-by.
  6. After updating to v4.3 I happen to be performing an update to my nVidia GTX 1080 driver when I noticed p3d still running in the background. After completion I shut the sim down and relaunched... there is no aircraft rendered in the startup screen and after selections are made and the sim loads all I see is black. Sound is there, and I can hear throttle/flap sounds. First thing I did was roll back my video driver. Then I deleted my P3D.cfg, scenery.cfg, and dll.xml files. I also used the shortcut to deleted all generated files. Nothing. I uninstalled P3D and re-installed V 4.2. Still nothing - no change. Next I deleted the following and restarted: C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 Re-installed to V4.3... no change!! Windows 10 64 bit, nVidia GTX 1080
  7. I have just updated to P3D v4.3 and RXP GTN v 2.5.2. GPS based navigation is no longer working properly; on a 'Direct-To" course the aicraft will fly as much as 50 degrees off of heading. The aircraft appears to initially track on course but soon thereafter begins to drift. I am in OBS mode, with NAV selected as the lateral mode on the autopilot. Approach sequencing is no longer working, either. Aircraft proceeds past Fly Over or Fly By waypoint. This is demonstrated on two Milviz aircraft - the DHC-2 and C310R Redux. Also with A2A's C-182. Screenshots attached. Thoughts?
  8. Running as Admin is the key...
  9. I am receiving an error when applying presets within PTA. Please see the text from my PTA log(s). I have uninstalled P3D v4.2 client, then re-installed. I have deleted the shaders files, to allow the program to rebuild them, and still the error persists. Here is my install log: Preset D:\Prepar3D Utils and Add-Ons\pta_2.61\rds_preset1.5\RDv1.5.ini loaded Applying preset D:\Prepar3D Utils and Add-Ons\pta_2.61\rds_preset1.5\RDv1.5.ini...

  10. Did you find a solution? I have the same issues...
  11. snpower

    Settings File Location ?

    After further searching it appears everything is in 'the cloud'...
  12. I've had to re-build my Windows 10 install and in the process of setting up P3Dv4.2 again (bleh). So I don't have to re-do 1,000 camera settings and button.joystick mappings within ChasePlane, can someone tell me where the preferences/settings file is so that I can copy it from my Windows.old folder?
  13. You are correct! I had been using my aircraft specific profile in FSUIPC. The general settings contained a single binding for one direction of the hat switch that needed to be cleared out. That was it...
  14. This is a new issue for me. I have done the following: - Checked that it works in Windows Game Controller Settings - Checked that it works in X-Plane 11 I have it programmed as View (Pan) in P3D v4.2. No response. I have disabled controllers in the sim, and set it up using FSUIPC for the same function... no response. I do seem to be able to assign it key presses, such as zoom in/out and those work. I was using a Saitek X52 system, but currently have no other controls plugged in save for the CH Products Rudder Pedals.
