  1. Really? Yeah, it's definitely a software compatibility issue. Do you know if that resolved the issue?
  2. So I tested again - same flight, same conditions, same everything. Except this time I didn't run Aivlasoft EFB. No crash...not even a stutter. I have no idea why it was crashing when EFB was running, but it looks like that was most certainly the cause. It's a shame too, I really like the product. I'd be interested to see if people running this same config (Windows 10, Orbx FTX software, Majestic Dash 8, etc.) with the EFB and on the same route (EICK - EGJB) run into similar issues. If anyone wants to, feel free and post the results here. Thanks Jim for your responses too, and in my other thread with the BSOD. Much appreciated! Regards, Steve
  3. Anyone have this issue and with these drivers? My first BSOD with Windows 10... :( Been having so many issues with Prepar3D crashing lately with no events recorded in the Event Viewer or AppCrashView, and now this. I'm certain this is due to the updated graphics driver (updated it yesterday), but still...very frustrating when you can't complete a single flight. Steve
  4. Hi Jim, Thanks for the response and suggestions. I am familiar with how to check the event viewer and other logs though, and trust me - there is nothing recorded there for the crash. Nothing showing either in AppCrashView. It's almost as if P3D has gracefully shut down. I have also gone to Lockheed Martin directly with this to see if there are P3D logs I can pull that might log what the sim was doing up until the crash. I don't have any tweaks in the p3d.cfg file either, so that rules that out. This is what AppCrashView reports: SetPoint.exe Stopped working 30/08/2015 15:50:05 All Users 0xc0000005 0x008405c4 nvd3dumx.dll 10.18.13.5560 C:\Program Files\Logitech\SetPointP\SetPoint.exe 16,958 C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive\AppCrash_SetPoint.exe_ecb76bf81183fd93c1722496a10d7f6204f36_1c6b7f74_cab_03869aad\Report.wer However, P3D crashed at about 16:15. I'll try running it tomorrow without Aivlasoft EFB and see if that makes a difference. Although I just remembered that I recently installed ORBX Trees HD too. Not sure if that is at fault. Will have to test more. I did also record the last portion of the flight with nVidia Shadowplay, which would have captured the crash. Might upload it to YouTube so people know what I'm talking about the 'graceful' crash. Regards, Steve
  5. Hi all, Have run into a peculiar issue. It has occurred during the last two flights I have attempted - one at night and one during the day. My setup is as follows: Core i7 4790k EVGA GTX 780 SC 8GB RAM Samsung 850 EVO SSD Windows 10 Pro 64-bit My Prepar3D setup is as follows: Prepar3D v2.5 PILOTs FS GLOBAL 2010 FTX Edition Orbx Global Base Orbx Global Vector Orbx OpenLC EU REX4 Texture Direct ActiveSky Next PrecipitFX Traffic 360 Aivlasoft EFB The aircraft I was using - Majestic Dash 8 Q400. What happens is this: about 75% way into the flight, Prepar3D just dies. No freezing before it crashes like I had before, no error message reported when it is about to quit, it just disappears from the screen. No events are recorded in the Windows Event Viewer application or windows logs either. Very frustrating this time as I was on approach! The flights both times out of interest were from Cork EICK to Guernsey EGJB. I did recently install Aivlasoft EFB, not sure if it could be causing the issue with the way it interacts with P3D. Are there any logs in the P3D folder that I can grab to take a look at? Or has anyone else had this issue? Any help would be appreciated. Getting frustrated at not being able to complete a single flight without a crash and for no apparent reason. Thanks, Steve

    Traffic 360 with Prepar3D 2.5

    Ok, so it didn't work after the install. But the fix was simple. All I had to do was edit the following file: C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\simobjects.cfg Add the following line to the end of the file: [Entry.9] Path=SimObjects\JFTraffic360 Et voila! Hope this helps people in the future. Regards, Steve

    Traffic 360 with Prepar3D 2.5

    Thanks for the replies guys. I came across this post and it seems to have worked. Even installed the Traffic Control Center application. http://airdailyx.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/a-guide-for-installing-orbx-scenery.html I'll post back here if I run into any more issues. Regards, Steve

    Traffic 360 with Prepar3D 2.5

    Hi, Has anyone tried installing Traffic 360 into P3D 2.5? On their site it says it's compatible with FSX and P3D v1, but no mention of v2. Does anything need to be added to the .cfg file to get it running or any other changes need to be made? Thanks, Steve

    OPTIMIZE_PARTS=1

    Have been following this thread and wanted to add my 2 cents. Tested this last night. Config as follows: i7 4790k GTX780 8GM RAM HT enabled - no AM Prepar3d 2.5 Active Sky Next FS Global 2010 FTX Edition FTX Global FTX Global Vector FTX GLobal OpenLC Europe REX4 Texture Direct Majestic Dash 8 Q400 FPS locked at 30 Sitting on the runway at EICK OP=0 23fps OP=1 21-23fps, not stable Seems to benefit the Majestic Q400 less/not at all going by others. PMDG NGX and T7 benefit the most. Cheers, Steve
  10. Ok, so I have taken the plunge and bought the Carenado CT182T. It looks absolutely superb - the 4k resolution textures are fantastic on a 2560x1440 display and it really looks rather substantial sitting on the runway with the exhaust rattling compared to a standard 172. FPS has taken quite a large hit though, sometimes as high as 30%!! I loaded up default Heathrow and chose the Fair weather preset. I can easily manage 30fps locked with stormy weather here in the Majestic Q400. However, in the 182 I was getting around 25-26 in the air and if I looked out the side window it would plummet to about 20-21fps. Not really acceptable in my opinion (especially seeing as I'm running a GTX 780 and an i7 4790k in P3D) but I won't be flying much around EGLL to be honest - so this is almost a worst case scenario. Hopefully the fps doesn't drop too much more when I start adding FTX Global, ASN and REX Texture Direct, etc. Just some insight into performance anyway.
  11. I'm running a GTX 780 and i7 4790k @ stock speeds on a 2560x1440 monitor. With stormy/rainy weather at default Heathrow and the Majestic Q400, I manage a rock solid 30fps. Do you think it would be any more of an fps hit than the Q400? Yeah, to be honest it looks amazing but the G1000 is drawing me in! Will you be able to select the G1000/turbo varient as an option or future update do you think? I've just heard of issues with people running some aircraft in P3D that are supposedly designed to work in it, so said I'd double check first. The interactive checklists are also an awesome feature in the Carenado version. Steve
  12. Hi All, Thinking about purchasing Carenado's CT182T Skylane G1000 HD Series for use in P3D v2.4. It only specifies on the Carenado website that it works with Prepar3D but not which version. Also, in the FlightSimStore it says compatibility with P3D v1: Compatibility: FSX, Prepar3D v1 http://www.flightsimstore.com/product_info.php?currency=EUR&products_id=2179&osCsid=if9je5jbvc0hrr92g2uimkcu81 Anyone know if it will work in v2.4? Thanks, Steve

    Majestic Software Dash 8 Q400

    Anyone know how to set the quality setting to High in the MJC84 Control Panel in P3D v2.4? What I've done is, started up P3D, loaded the Dash 8 and when it has settled on the runway I jump back to the desktop and start up the control panel. The settings are set to Medium and refresh rate is Slow. I change this to High and refresh rate to Fast and click apply. It appears to take the settings, but there is a note saying that the aircraft must be reloaded before they will take effect. So I reload the aircraft, and the settings reset back to the original. The same happens if I apply the setting and quit the game and start it up again. Anyone been having this issue? Thanks in advance. Regards, Steve
  14. I have the 4790k running at stock speeds. When at default Heathrow airport in stormy weather in the PMDG 737 NGX using DX10, my fps is rock solid at 30. I have made a handful of modifications to the .cfg file and tweaked some settings with nVidia Inspector, but overall I am delighted with how it is performing! The GTX 780 in the background probably helps too though Hope this helps. Steve
  15. Hi All, I have ordered Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X. Just wondering does anyone have any experience with it? I can't find many reviews on it out there, but the general impressions seem to be great for the price. I was initially going to go with the Saitek X55, but have reservations about spending 200EUR on my first piece of hardware - this seems to be a good compromise. Also, anyone that is using it - how do you have it configured? I think it comes with a default FSX setup, but I haven't used it yet. Is the twist rudder any good? Thanks, Steve
