    P3d 4.3 not installing correctly

    haha, my bad didn't realize i posted it in the wrong forum
  3. I have reached my wits end, I am hoping someone here can help. Everytime I try and do a full install of P3d 4.3 I get most of the content, with no .exe or any of the other files you find in your root directory. I have tried to install the packages individually, and also as a full install. I have attached a picture of the p3d folder and the content I am getting.

    Really Happy to See How Far P3D Has Come

    It really has come a long way and it looks fantastic with better performance.... one thing though those pictures are awesome and where did you get the A330...?..

    What's the upside to going to 4.2 from 4.1?

    Ok, so here is my 2 cents. I upgraded to 4.2 and got a dramatic increase in VR performance as well as regular performance. I am running a GTX1080 on 2 screens, the ability to switch from VR to non VR flying is a game changer for me for long flights as well as single pass (VR option) I only installed the Client though, I did not upgrade anything else.

    Any freeware Quest Kodiak?

    No there is not, not to my knowledge

    Aurora Borealis at Narvik

    That’s awesome, I was flying into Atlanta last night and saw fireworks. Is this part of the default P3d scenery

    X-Plane 11 Native VR

    Oh this is a good idea. How high up have you noticed the desk doesn’t interfere with the controller? Thanks for the suggestion Thats the best part about flight sim and aviation in general is everyone has their personal style and it all works because flying is so subjective. And it’s fun to see how other pilots adjust their flying space.

    X-Plane 11 Native VR

    See I don’t use my touches because while sitting at my desk I can’t see, to get the sensors placed in an area that the touches aren’t blocked by the desk when I lower my hands.

    X-Plane 11 Native VR

    So a couple things I have noticed, with P3dv4 native VR vs FlyInside. First thing is the native VR is way more perfomance taxing in P3dv4 than FlyInside which if this is any indication of how X-plane would be it would be good to purchase FlyInside. That being said, my experience with X-plane is that when they roll out something it generally is pretty optimized. Word on the street is it may be released by Christmas, so if you can wait another couple weeks than do it. But FlyInside is a great program and has taken over my flight sim experience in both P3dv4 and X-plane. I just uninstalled P3dv4 because X-plane vr is second to non due to performance and flight dynamics in VR feels like the real thing to me! But everyone’s interpretation of flight is different and unique to the person. Happy flying.

    KABQ to KDFW

    Man, this is a cool looking aircraft. How is it? For 20 bucks it seems like a steal

    X-Plane 11 VR and GTX 1080

    So this is what I have done.. I have just pulled out my old 780ti and installed the 1080, I went from med world objects to max. I was able to go from 2xMSAA to the full right on the antialiasing (not looking at my settings so bare with me). I’m running two 19” monitors side by side.. and use nvidia span to go from 1980x1080 to 3960x1080 (again not looking at it so it might night be the right measurement). I no longer take a huge frame hit from running xenviro. Ultimately I’m able to run xplane maxed out with exception to the HDR+SSBO (?) setting. I am getting a solid 30FPS in cities. this isn’t even the best part my VR results are incredible. I’m able to run a solid 30/90 framerate, highest resolution with 100% FOV draw (C172). The only change in the graphics settings in game i have made is no AA. In populated cities I am running the IXEG 737 (VR) at 25/90. Which isn’t to shabby. And it fluctuates between 25-30/90. Anyways this card is incredible. I’ve taken such a jump in VR resolution I took my second monitor down and am flying sole VR now. I haven’t seen the same performance increases in P3dv4 which has been semi dissapointing. Ultimately I would wager to say I have had a 75% perfomance increase in Xplane.. I feel like p3dv4 is more CPU heavy hence the disappointment with P3dv4

    X-Plane 11 VR and GTX 1080

    So i have installed my 1080! And it has made a world of difference!! I have a 75% performance increase and it is amazing. I have yet to try VR but am excited. Thanks fot all your replies and opinions.

    X-Plane 11 VR and GTX 1080

    Ok so it's an issue with the program itself and not the graphics card. How is the card itself? do you like it? Thanks for the reply by the way.
