  1. I would get small stutters for a short period of time while the scenery loaded but not the actual pause.
  2. I am experiencing an issue that I never had in V4.2. When I am near any addon airport I get a 1 to 2 second pause while the airport loads. This occurs when I am flying over an airport as well. For example, while flying from KSAN to KSFO I was near KMRY at FL210. I received the pause. I have a 4G 32" monitor. Using 29.5 FPS limiter and 1/2 refresh rate through NV Inspector. I have used many different AM settings and adjusted nearly every setting within the sim. It happens with PMDG and other quality addon planes. I even reverted back to a previous driver hoping to eliminate the problem. I get great FPS (limited as stated) and the overall flight is very smooth. I will continue to experiment in an attempt to solve this frustrating situation but I am curious if anyone else is experiencing this behavior or if anyone has a thought as to what my cause it or an area of troubleshooting I should concentrate on. I think my specs are in my signature. Thanks

    P3D 4.3 - 2nd Test required

    I am way behind the knowledge curve that many of you have regarding the Affinity Mask (AM), batch file etc. I do try different AM numbers that you all provide even though I cannot define how it works. I also have the dreaded 2 second stall at certain times and locations. It drives me crazy. I spend more time testing and reading forums than flying. I nearly reverted back to v.2 yesterday since I had less issues and an AM that worked pretty well. I now have to have vsync and triple buffering on where I didn't before. I am not certain that updates are worth the hassle. For every new fix there is an unintended consequence. I appreciate all the comments and suggestions even though most of them are way over my head. Okay, I feel better now just getting it off my chest. Happy flying!
  4. Clarifying that when I use the "+" and "-" on the time change box there is a very slow reply before the digit changes. I am having a hard time explaining what I am trying to say.
  5. I have discovered a very troubling and frustrating issue in 4.3. While attempting to change the time of day in the start up page I found that there is a long period of delay when scrolling the number up or down. This happens with both the mouse and the up and down arrows. For instance if I the system time says 10 A.M and I want the flight to leave 8 hours later I try to change the number to 6 P.M. If I try to use the mouse wheel the number does not change for 30 seconds or so and then does not land on 6 P.M. The same thing happens if I try to change it using the up and down key on the key board. It is nearly impossible to set the time of day with this problem. I also discovered the same thing happens while in Sim Director in the Scenery catalog. If I click on an ORBX library for instance and want to change to another library it does the same as above. Even within a library and I want to select two different hangars it does the same thing in that box. I noticed the map area in Sim Director indicates that it is 6 or 7 FPS. I believe it was much faster in 4.2 I posted in LM forum but have received no remarks. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what I can do to fix it. 4.3 is working perfectly for me in all other aspects. Is this just an anomaly on my system or all systems. Thanks in advance.

    Good to go with 4.3?

    Hi Rob, do you know if FSDT and Flightbeam have updated or do you still have to move them out of the Documents folder?

    I am still holding off. I had the black screen spooling up issue and went back to 4.2. I to, am hoping and waiting for a patch or fix from LM so that the transition does not require such an arduous troubleshooting experience to upgrade to 4.3.
  8. Patience is very hard for me when a new product or an update is made available but after spending many hours trying to correct all the issues I deleted 4.3 and reinstalled 4.2 which worked very well for me. I will wait for a month or so and hope all the bugs will be fixed and then try again.

    P3D VER 4.3 wont start

    It would seem that many of us are having this issue. That is why I decided to revert back and wait for the issues to be worked out with addons. Let me know if you have success. Good luck.

    Yes, I followed all the instructions regarding xml files. Something is obviously causing problems. I'll wait until the addons catch up.

    Mine was working fine when I shut off the computer last night. Today, no go.

    I had the same issue. Nothing corrected the issue. I reverted back to 4.2.
  13. Many of the airports are great but you asked for favorites. I would say FlyTampa KBOS and all Flightbeam. FSDT and PacSim. Of course all the ORBX are very good. Really looking forward to FlyTampa KLAS to see what they have done with it. DD's Seattle airports and city are also outstanding.
  14. Hi all, I would like to add some C130s to an airport using Sim Director. I have searched all the libraries (over 17000) and have been unable to find this plane. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to get this plane into the libraries or how accomplish my mission. I am using P3Dv4. Thanks in advance.
