  1. Hello I apologise if this question has been asked before in this forum but at the moment unable to find an answer. When using Environment Force with Skyforce do I have to start Skyforce and leave it running whilst running Environment Force so that real-time 3D cloud Models can be updated and syncronised?

  2. Hello As many users continue to wait for the V4.5 fix, would an alternative to be to do a fresh install of P3D and all add-ons or is the solution more involved, therefore, have to wait until the fix is released? Clive Alexander

    Alternative to waiting for V4.5 fix

    I think the word "HOTFIX" should be dropped as many weeks have now passed since the problem was acknowledged and what was expected to be a fast solution has not transpired as it appears that the problem is more serious Reverting to V4.4 is probably the best idea as I do not like using V4.5 on half settings, which if not corrected soon will get people use to using V4.5 with half settings, which will become the norm and pressure from continual messages of dissatisfaction will cease and therefore a fix will be delayed or not corrected until the next major release. Many add-ons have been optimised for V4.5 and users are still waiting to use V4.5 to its full potential, not half settings
  4. Hello When setting up a network to use with P3D and ActiveSky if the client computer has lower specifications than the server computer would data transfer and performance be slower than if the software was working on the server (main) computer alone? The server computer is Windows 10 (I7-7700) The client computer is windows 7 (AMD 5200+) As my client computer specs are slow compared to my server computer would there be any advantage in using it for networking or use my server computer to run everything Clive Alexander
  5. Whilst many users wait for a fix to be issued in relation to low FPS in V4.5 do they return to using V4.4. I had changed to V4.5 mainly to take advantage of the new night lighting, especially when used with words not allowed software but not possible at the moment Clive Alexander
  6. Hello I am attempting to install and use Radar Contact. As the previous method of obtaining a registration key by email is no longer supported I am trying to use the Encrypt program to generate the registration code. What text do I have to insert in order for the code to be generated? I have tried to insert my name and use the code that appears but when I insert this code Radar Contact does not run and request the same registration program again. Please advise Clive Alexander

    TIME PREVIEW

    When I select "Time Preview" the panel does not appear. Before it went wrong I had dragged the "Time Preview" window onto my second monitor. I closed down with the window still open on my second monitor and when I started again I noticed that it was not showing when selected. Any ideas?? P3D v4.4 Clive Alexander

    FPS in V4.5 (waiting for a fix)

    As far as I am aware LM do use new encoding in n V4.5, therefore it is also important for developers of add-ons to ensure that their add-ons are compatible with the code used by LM. Maybe the new addons will comply but any of the older addons may not comply and to my way of understanding that is why if users are using an older addon with software that has been developed using new encoding that is where the problems begin and why not all users are affected by current issues Clive

    FPS in V4.5 (waiting for a fix)

    As I wait for the V4.5 fix to be released, would there be any advantage to get around the FPS issue and screen freezing by re-installing P3D v4.5 complete or wait for the fix to be released Clive

    FPS in V4.5 (waiting for a fix)

    What is worrying about the current situation with FPS and screen freeze in V4.5 is that It does not affect every user. If the problem affected every user it would be a straight forward fix. So many variables Clive Alexander

    P3D V4.5 Screen freeze

    Hello I have upgraded from V4.4 to 4.5, V4.4 was good. When I use V4.5 and start takeoff roll, as I leave the ground (rotate) I experience a 4 second screen freeze. Any ideas what may be causing this issue? V4.4 worked great. I have deleted the shaders folder and CFG file. I use ORBX Global and Europe LC Clive Alexander

    P3D V4.5 Screen freeze

    Do users affected by this problem return to using V4.4 or is a fix to be issued very soon

    P3D V4.5 Screen freeze

    On doing further tests I have to apologise for saying that the problem was with UK2000 scenery. I decided to deselect every scenery title within the scenery library and then add them one by one (deleting shader folder and CFG file everytime) in an attempt to find which scenery was causing the problem. After I had added all the scenery files in turn I was not able to isolate any specific scenery area and now I do not receive a screen freeze when rotate from UK2000 (Birmingham). Can anyone explain why? Clive

    P3D V4.5 Screen freeze

    Carrying out further tests on Screen Freeze problems I have narrowed the problem down to UK2000 airport (Birmingham) I have posted a message on the UK2000 form for further advice

    P3D V4.5 Screen freeze

    when running P3D I have everything not required turned off. Identical to V4.4

    P3D V4.5 Screen freeze

    As yet, I have not tried to disable ORB as I have reverted back to v4.4. If I find that the problem is resolved when removing ORBX does that mean that the problem is with ORBX or LM. Why is it that other users using ORBX have reported no problems? I have verified all ORBX files. The aircraft I use for testing is the PMDG737 which is up to date. I assumed that V4.5 was an advancement and did not expect to have to start and test every scenery one by one, this will take hours to complete and possible without any results. I have picked up on other posts on the P3D support site saying that the problem of freezing is reported at UK2000 airports. My airport was Birmingham (UK2000) I have posted a message on the UK2000 forum asking if they are aware of any problems with their scenery
  19. hello If I was to export presets camera positions to another aircraft how or is it possible to export the assignments (keys or joystick buttons) that I have used with the presets? Clive Alexander

    ASSIGNMENTS & PRESETS

    Thank you for your reply. After a quick scan of the manual I came to the conclusion that it would not be possible. Your reply has confirmed this and saved me further time searching for a solution

    REALISTIC EFFECTS

    Hi Am I correct in thinking that there used to be an option with the B737NGX to remove the realistic fingerprint and dust markings from the EFIS panel so that the panel would look brand new and not used? I have been looking in the FMS setup section but no success Clive Alexander P.S has the option being removed with recent updates??

    I am scouring that now..ha..ha

    REALISTIC EFFECTS

    That has me puzzled.......I was 99.9% positive that I had removed the fingerprints from this aircraft panel before by using the setup options inside the FMC panel
  24. Hello If I select my preset views using the windows interface, P3D window mode is unselected, even with " Pause on Task Switch" unchecked. I have to select the P3D window again after changing views. How can I resolve this...what have I missed. I have browsed the manual without success Clive Alexander

    FS GLOBAL ULTIMATE

    Hello Once I have installed the area in which I require on my P3D simulator (Europe) which as made a directory named FSGU_NG. Am I able to move the folder in which I unzipped the files to (FSG) from my drive 😄 into an external storage drive Clive Alexander
