  1. Hello, I'm running Prepar3D v3.2.3.16769 and I'm having problems with blurry ground textures. When I initially load up at an airport, the ground texture/mesh is clear : As I fly around to other airports, or slew to another airport nearby, the ground mesh/texture becomes incredibly blurry. When I stop slewing or moving, and stop aircraft motion, I try to let the textures load to become clearer. Nothing happens, and the ground texture stays blurry, as shown here : I have no idea what's causing the blurry textures. I have the latest NVIDIA graphics driver. I'm using Predrag's Realism Shader Pack, PTA 3.3, and ReShade w/ Eddie's ReShade profile. Here is my prepar3d.cfg: [JOBSCHEDULER] AffinityMask=10 [GRAPHICS] HDR_BRIGHTNESS=1.050000 HDR_BLOOM_THRESHOLD=3.000000 HDR_BLOOM_MAGNITUDE=0.850000 HDR_BLOOM_BLUR_SIGMA=0.800000

    BGLMANX.dll Constant Error

    *Problem has been solved*. I copied the dll.xml entry of bglmanx.dll (from AppData/Roaming) to the dll.xml in ProgramData. That worked!

    BGLMANX.dll Constant Error

    As for FSDT products, I have only installed FSDT JFK. I've been uninstalling and reinstalling, trying new solutions but nothing has really worked. I've also uninstalled the Level-D 767, and have also run a reg cleaner. I've probably exaggerated all of the options at this point so I guess I'll just go without the FSDT...

    BGLMANX.dll Constant Error

    Thank you for the detailed reply. I changed the disabled to True for bglmanx.dll, and the sim loaded properly. I then removed the LVLD.dll entry, and changed the bglmanx.dll back to False so it could load. Unfortunately, I still got the error..seems like the Level-D wasn't the culprit here. Could it be some corrupt installation with FSDT/bglmanx.dll issue?

    BGLMANX.dll Constant Error

    I checked my dll.xml and bglmanx.dll was already the first entry for addons. Also, I have installed ASN. Here's my dll.xml <?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>Addon Manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>bglmanx.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 4</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>Modules\FSUIPC4.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>ObjectFlow</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>D:\Prepar3D v3\ORBX\FTX_AU\FTXAA_ORBXLIBS\Scenery\ObjectFlow_P3D.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Level-D Simulations</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>Modules\LVLD.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_connect</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> I've also tried removing everything but the bglmanx entry in the dll.xml, but the same error still persists.

    BGLMANX.dll Constant Error

    Already have done that as well, and still the error persists. Could it be something directly related to simconnect?

    BGLMANX.dll Constant Error

    Thanks for the reply. I do not have ASN currently installed though. This problem also is with the QW 757, (uses bglmanx).
  8. Hello Everyone, I have just done a fresh reinstall of Prepar3D v3.2 (lastest version, Academic) on Windows 10. After installing the FSDreamteam KJFK, I got this error on startup related to the dll they use for couatl/addon manager : It has been coming up ever since. I uninstalled the FSDT product and everything worked fine afterwards. How can I fix this error? I cannot even get in to the simulator with this. It seems to me that many of my problems are caused by this bglmanx/addon manager stuff... I have the latest version of FSUIPC installed. Thank you!

    Prepar3D Running but no Splashcreen

    Yes, the setting is turned on to show the start up screen.
  10. Hello all, I have been having some issues with my Prepar3D V3.1 - when I run it as an admin to start up, the splashscreen shows up. After a minute or so, the splashscreen completely disappears, but in task manager, the program is still running. My most recent addon install was the Flight1 GTN750 and the Carenado Hawker. I'm running Windows 10 with an i7-4790k, GTX980ti, 16GB RAM w/ the latest version of P3D v3.1. I have tried deleting the scenery.cfg or reinstalling the latest addon manager to see if it had anything to do with that, but no luck. I've also reinstalled the latest version of FSUIPC. Any suggestions/tips? Thank you all.

    Captain Sim 757 FDE

    VC Textures - I made them myself. Sounds - TSS. Payload - A mod by Sean Zarella (I believe also available on the avsim library or
  12. Hello, I purchased the CS 757 and used migration tool to fly it in Prepar3D 3.1 - everything about it is quite decent, and I've added a few mods including VC textures, new sounds and payloads. Unfortunately, the one thing that I do not like about the 757 is the flight feels like I'm flying a light fighter jet. Are there any new .air files for the CS 757 online for better flight dynamics? I know that somebody made updated air files for the CS 767 on, but the email associated with that person does not exist anymore. It would be great to be able to fly this bird and have it feel like a 757. Thank you

    bglmanx Error on Startup

    Hello, I installed FSDT KIAH and on the startup of P3D 3.1, this error came up : The sim just exits out after I press ok. I don't really know what it means so a fix would definitely be appreciated... -FSDT KIAH was installed as admin -I downloaded latest addon manager and installed as admin (is also the first entry in dll.xml) -P3D is running as admin -No Antivirus blocking anything -The 3 simconnects ARE installed Anybody know what's going on? Thanks
  14. Thank you so much for the detailed help and explanation! I tried the fix and so far, all is well and the sim is running fine. Let's hope this fix is permanent! I really appreciate it
  15. Hello everyone, For the past month or so, I haven't been able to complete a single flight on my sim (FSX). Sometime during the middle of the flight, my monitors black out and then I get a message saying that the Nvidia drivers have crashed/stopped working and has recovered. The sim becomes a black screen and the only thing i can do is press the close button to exit the sim. I've looked online for many fixes including uninstalling a certain windows update, using a microsoft "fix it" program to fix the registry, reinstall the latest drivers, and so on. I haven't been able to fix the problem so's pretty annoying not being able to complete a flight :/ Does anybody know of any other fixes to this issue? Thank you all.
