  1. One CTD I am able to reproduce almost 100% of the time on my system is when I use RTSS 7.3.0 Beta4 to display onscreen details. The sim loads fine with RTSS OSD on, but if I change aircraft with RTSS OSD on, I get a kernelbase.dll CTD, every time, even with HF2. so I have it turned off for P3d. I am using a RTX2080S driver version 446.14 with default settings, Windows 1909.
  2. After watching the video, I heard more about forecast condition than actual conditions. In my daily real world flight planning, I rely on apps like METEOBlue, WIndy winguru etc to give me a general picture of the coming days and really more on the METAR for actual weather reports because I have had many days when all my weather apps failed woefully with their predictions. I would like to see how the new sim will depict actual conditions in terms of METAR's, and the forecast conditions i.e Meteoblues weather models simultaneously in the sim.
  3. With what i've seen so far, xplane isnt too far behind. it needs Global scenery and fixing the constant weather draw and re-draws and you could probably compare the two sims screenshot by screenshot.
  4. Glad to read about a fellow simmer finding his sweet spot with V5. I've had a love hate relationship with V5. My final straw with V5 happened yesterday after taking about 45mins to set up the PMDG 747 for a flight out of Talin only to get a CTD 2mins into taxi. Most major sim forums are filled with V5 related CTD issues no doubt, but i think it will get better. I finally have an idea of what it feels like to be software tester. For now on my system V5 remains installed but my sweet spot remains with V4.
  5. I think I may have found a solution, but am still testing it but it seems to have reduced my CTD's thus far. if you use Riva tuner statistics for frame rate monitoring, try disabling it and see if it helps. I have the nvidia and RTS on at the same time so i disable RTS onscreen display and my CTD's seem to have reduced.
  6. On a fresh installation with no mods, I get CTD when i switch aircraft after flying for a while in another aircraft, change settings, after a few right clicks to access the menu or just random CTD's . I have seen a few threads on the LM forum with others complaining. most of my system error logs generate the following message Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5e95060d Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.18362.778, time stamp: 0xafa78a6a Exception code: 0xc0020001 Fault offset: 0x000000000003a799 Faulting process id: 0x4ebc Faulting application start time: 0x01d6149dd9582b50 Faulting application path: B:\Prepar3D v5\Prepar3D.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\KERNELBASE.dll Report Id: 7e23430e-0764-40f8-badd-91afe94a427f Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:
  7. Cities or Airports from west Africa, Lagos, Abuja, Accra, Douala etc. There might be nothing spectacular in terms of landmarks or scenery but I’ll like to see how it’s implemented in MSFS.
  8. Very smooth performance on my PC with no HT. (I9-9900K, RTX2080S, 16gbRam).
  9. Is it possible to open up the ATC system via the SDK so addon developers could have a crack at it, or is the ATC system part of the core component of the sim and too complex and interconnected to be part of the SDK or open for 3rd party development,
  10. That has happened to me at least 4 times in the last month or so after installing or removing some scenery. I also spent countless hours trying to troubleshoot but no luck. So I uninstalled and reinstalled P3DV4, and I make backup copies of my Lockheed Martin folder in programdata folder after every good scenery installation. At the first sign of trouble I delete the folder and restore from a backup. That method has saved me twice now.
  11. Will I purchase P3dV5? absolutely Yes. I for one am tired and fed up of the endless tease by Asobo with MSFS, always getting me excited with no taste of the product (tired of waiting for Alpha...SMH). I have got 2 girlfriends who recently got very good surgery done and are going to show me a good time, and thats good enough for a simple guy like me. 😎
  12. I still will upgrade to V5 regardless of the video. I think there will be performance gains, just not anything new in terms of graphics and visuals. And if its still looks the same as version 4 then am sure most of my addons will work on it, giving me a shiny new version 4. errr,,,,,sorry version 5

  14. It’s really sad there will be no helicopters at launch, with every update screenshot released, I really want to “helicopter” this sim soooo bad.
  15. B727-200 Super 27, B737-200 or the B737 classics, MD82/MD83 in that particular order.
