  1. Out of curiosity I installed the Milviz C310R into V5. Everything appears to work, e.g., gauges and autopilot etc. The only apparent problem is RealLight and TrueGlass. Since these are both implementations of software by TFDi, it's unclear why they haven't been updated (Aerosoft did it relatively quickly for the Airbus A330). The textures presumably won't change, so is it only the shaders (e.g., RealLight.hlsl), that need modified? There might be something more fundamental missing (but not obvious to me), but now really wondering what is happening with Milviz and product support.
  2. Getting Traffic Global to work in v5 is actually very simple. If you have it installed for v4 then copy the TrafficGlobal folder from Documents/Prepar3d v4 Add-ons to the v5 Add-ons folder and edit the add-on.xml to point towards the v5 Add-ons folder. P3D v5 should then ask for permission to activate Traffic Global next time you start. There is definitely a frame rate hit with this programme, but it gets the job done if you keep the traffic levels at an appropriate setting for your system.
  3. @asustech Open Notepad and paste the following into the document. Save it as exe.xml (or change the suffix afterwards). Place it in your appdata/roaming/Lockheed martin/prepar3d v5/ folder. Make sure the path to your Logitech drivers is correct. <?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>Logitech Plugin for Prepar3D</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files\Logitech\Prepar3D V4 Plugin\LogiPrepar3D.exe</Path> <CommandLine>-run</CommandLine> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document>
  4. After installing the HF3 client I can apply a preset but it doesn't seem to be working in P3D (shaders look like default). Shaders and cfg were deleted first. When I exit PTA I get 'I/O Error 103'. Anyone have an idea what this means or how to fix it?
  5. The biggest company with the greatest resources and most beta testers should clearly produce bug free software...……… oh, Windows 10...………😆
  6. The solution was originally provided by @onurair - so we all owe him a virtual beer 🍻
  7. @SolRayz Irrespective of your experience, it worked for me and at least two other person (see the thread). The solution will obviously depend on the root cause of the problem. This is just one potential fix - not a panacea.
  8. @spilok your glass panels are showing the same reduced resolution I saw after installing some 3rd party aircraft (i.e., the enlarged airport designators on the gps). The solution is in the thread I linked. Running the delete generated files restored my glass panels and gps gauges back to the correct resolution. Beware that this will also remove your add-ons and control settings etc., so have some backups of required files. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/573529-how-do-i-fix-pixelated-panels-p3d-v5/
  9. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/573529-how-do-i-fix-pixelated-panels-p3d-v5/ This thread might/might not help. Depends if gauges are also affected.
  10. Unfortunately not. Deleting the generated files didn't remove any aircraft so I didn't need to reinstall.
  11. I'm not sure we're all having the same issue, but in my case Onurair's solution fixed the problem. Using 'Delete Generated Files' returned all glass panel gauges and gps displays back to their original resolution. It was actually less painful than I thought it would be. P3D detected all add-ons and reactivated them. Running OrbX Central restored he rest of the scenery. Biggest problem was getting Traffic Global active again, but it worked eventually. There might be other things missing at this stage, but hopefully nothing major. Thanks everyone for their suggestions and especially to Onurair for the solution.
  12. exe.xml to edit is in User\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5
  13. I did follow your suggestion and doubled the pixel sizes in the panel.cfg for the Carenado King Air. It improved the image slightly, but didn't change the problem with the gps image (presumably the default gps) and I don't want to do it for all aircraft. It does seem that in my case installing something has altered the way in which glass gauges are displayed. The gps in the AC-11 included with v5 shows the same issue, so I'm assuming it's a systemic problem. I'll try Onurair's solution to return settings to default - uninstalling and reinstalling the client and content didn't fix it. It's the price for rushing in with too many add-ons - but I'm an experimentalist!!
  14. @regis9 Thanks for the info. Time to back-track on my installations!
