  1. Perhaps I should clarify what i'm terming as "haze" and when i say for me it's too much. Others on here are saying that the sky looks much more authentic to real world conditions in xplane, but i'm not really refering to this as much as when looking downward, at the ground from anything above 3 thousand feet on a clear day and no weather, the ground has a washed out "haze" appearence which I find to be unrealistic to the real world
  2. many thanks for the reply not biased at all but I do think x-plane too much, and p3d probably not enough however I've been through the entire utilities folder on .org and there is no file called fog be gone. I've tried it with both spaces and as one word but nothing I've also ended up going through each page individually has it been removed or moved? thanks
  3. Hi im sure this has already been solved but my playing around has so far failed I've tried extending visability out to 100sm,no clouds and time of day and month but externally from the flight windows things still look as if im flying through light fog Have i missed a setting or is there something i need to download/change Thanks
  4. Slowing of initial p3d loading

    hi, for info I'm running p3d from an ssd , the only difference is windows 10 is now installed instead of windows 7 otherwise everything else is identical P3d installed to exactly same drive. All addons are same as before mobo and processor same as before oc same there is nothing different from how I was running in windows 7. just the initial load screen now takes longer cheers
  5. graphics washed out

    Many thanks Is there a file or setting that i change to the overall apearance ie bloom or such like
  6. Hi, Just wondered if win10 slows down p3dv4.2 initial loading and if there is a way to speed it back up. I recently upgraded from win7 pro to win10pro which was a clean install of windows 10 and also a clean install of p3d I then reinstalled all my addons so now i have a more or less identical setup to the windows 7 pro setup pre upgrade. But i find now that the initial loading seems to take much longer to get to the selection screen with windows 10 Is there anything that i can disable that might be the cause of this slowdown. My gut instinct is that its either windows 10 processes or win 10 security features causing the issues,but i don't know enough on win10 as to what or where to look Thanks
  7. graphics washed out

    Hi, a couple of questions regarding the flightfactor B767 I'm still getting my head round x-plane 11 and have a couple of questions that I cannot seem to find an answer to,hopefully some may be able to provide the answers. 1. My B767 flight deck looks too washed out to me but I cannot find how to darken it to a more reasonable level any ideas? 2. Regarding braking how do I set the braking?. I'm using an x55 joystick and use the fire button to normally control my braking in other sims and one of the toggle switches to select the parking brake on and off. Unfortunately I cant figure out how to achieve this in X-plane 11 Thanks

  9. Dll and exe backup

    Thanks for the info Have contacted them on the aerosoft forum
  10. Dll and exe backup

    Hi, Recently my windows drive crashed completely and I have had to reinstall both windows and p3dv4.2. I also took the opertunity to upgrade to windows 10 pro. Because I was having to do a complete reinstall of p3d I've been checking the dll files in both appdata and program data folders, and I noticed that the DLL.xml file in the appdata folder while also containing the file dll.xml.SIMstarterBackup and exe.xml.SIMstarterBackup are no different to the main DLL an EXE files This is my current DLL.xml file <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 5</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>E:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Modules\FSUIPC5.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> and this is the SIMstarterBackup <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 5</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>E:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Modules\FSUIPC5.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> The EXE.xml file is this <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>EXE.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_btstrp_config_manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp_config_manager.exe</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> and the exe.xmlSIMstarterBackup is this <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>EXE.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_btstrp_config_manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp_config_manager.exe</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> Should there be entries made to the DLL and EXE xml files when installing Simstarter onto the system? The program seems to start fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of time with the windows firewall on and off but this had made no difference can you offer any ideas if this may or may not be a problem Thanks
  11. dll.xml issue

  12. dll.xml issue

    Hi , I think I may have an issue with my dll.xml file not updating , I've had to reinstall my p3dv4 install from scratch as my windows drive went bang! and although p3d was on a different drive the dll,exe files were on the windows drive. So I decided to delete P3d and reinstall as well as upgrading to win 10 since reinstalling I've noticed that the dll.xml file now appears in capitals rather than in lower case and does not seem to update as reinstalled things like pmdg aircraft ,active sky, simstarter , raas I suspect this is not normal and I may have an issue but not sure where to look or fix, are there other possible locations for this file? Any ideas, Thanks
  13. Hi, I have a slight issue with an update that while I've updated to it already,every time I open up the update centre it says that I have 1 update for the b747 v3 p3d v4 the file according to the log file is 3.00 8605 is there any way to fix this or can I set it to ignore this file? Thanks
  14. Just wondered if enabling hyperthreading is worth doing in either p3d or xplane. With all the added heat and stress to the cpu does it give me anything extra.
  15. A320 sound problems

    Hi, I'm sure there's a simple fix but not simple for me. I should also add I've posted this on their forum, but I might get a quicker response on here,as they might be a bit busy! I've redownloaded the latest p4 version of the fslabs A320 ver uninstalled my previous p3dv4 install and then reinstalled with this latest version. I then ran p3dv4.2 but I have no cockpit sound at all,just the sound of a small generator or single prop engine running in the background, not sure exactly what it sounds most like. I have tried running the a320 starting straight from vehicle selection and from starting a default aircraft first,but get the same results. This just seems to be with the a320 as i've tried it with several other aircraft and their sounds all seem to work fine. Any ideas of a solution. I've also updated the fsl spotlights but that should not really have an effect on the sounds and I'm running GSX also Cheers
