  1. Resolved the stuck issue using old scenery.cfg airport entries in P3dv4.3 with these steps: 1. After updating client, content and scenery I then deleted generated files 2. Ran 4.3 and regenerated all deleted files including the scenery.cfg adding all of the addons that are part of the scenery_add-ons.xml and add-ons.cfg (backed up) 3. Opened FTX Central following Poppet's/Orbx steps for initializing Orbx 4. Ran 4.3 again regenerating Orbx entries in the scenery.cfg (backed up) 5. Using my saved 4.2 scenery.cfg i added all the entries for non-addon.xml entries (i.e. addon airports) above Orbx using notepad 6. Using a scenery editor such as AdditPro for P3d I rebuilt the scenery library ensuring that all entries are consecutive-in the right priority and layer then saved. There are probably free scenery editors that can do the same thing 7. Ran 4.3 and complete joy at not having to manually add to the new 4.3 scenery.cfg or reinstall every one of my 300 third-party sceneries
  2. Hi! Just updated the client and content for P3dv4.3 from 4.2. No issues with install as I have done this many times before. However when I attempt to startup P3dv4.3 I am stuck at 34% with the original scenerycfg or 98% with a new one. Deleted generated files no joy. Uninstalled and reinstalled with no addons accepted-still no joy. Deleted generated files and accepted all addons still no joy. I ended up installing the scenery for 4.3 and then reinstalling my global and hd trees following Poppet's instructions. Everything worked and asked me to activate addons which I did. Worked perfectly. Then I saved that scenery cfg. Tried with my old scenerycfg stuck at 68%. I have over 300 scenery addons. I have separate scenerycfg for different regions to avoid overwhelming P3d and my pc. Hate to have to reinstall or add all that scenery to the new cfg. Never had this problem..Is the P3dv4.3 scenerycfg formatted differently then 4.2 as this seems to be the problem!? I have never had an issue installing, reinstalling or updating any version of P3d but this truly has me stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    FlyTampa's Boston Released!!

    Just purchased and it is beautiful! If using with US Cities-Boston you must do this per the FlyTampa website: US Cities X Boston is compatible with Flytampa Boston rebooted with one small adjustment. Rename AF2_KBOS_ALT.BGL to AF2_KBOS_ALT.OFF This file can be found in Your Prepar3D Folder\Scenery\World\Scenery Without disabling this file you will experience elevation problems.

    Water Texture Anomalies in P3dv4.1

    Fixed it. Ran a restore of REX backup to default then applied ENVTEX photo-real water textures which look better than default and REX. Not sure what actually fixed it...textures must have gotten stuck somehow in the transitions.

    Water Texture Anomalies in P3dv4.1

    Yes pics are good especially when you are asking for support for a visual medium....still learning the ropes here in terms of uploading images...hopefully this works! https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipPy2wACvbq22fY0Gl42MTEFPepWY20verRsQF8Q screenshot off of San Francisco with FTX region NCA with REX Direct water textures
  6. Recently reinstalled P3Dv4.1 with FTX Global/Vector and several FTX Regions among them PNW and NCA. However I noticed that square darker water textures seem to bleed through in large bodies of water. I tried using REX HD Direct and ENVTEX water textures to cover this up. Alas no joy! Initially I thought it might be a tile morphing issue so I deleted my terrain cfg and went through the prescribed steps with both the simulator and FTX Central and Vector. Again no joy! Not sure what is causing this. Scenery library is in the correct order for both FTX and Vector. Any help appreciated! Thanks!

    P3dv4.1 Crashes Opening Options Menu

    Went through every single one of the debugging steps short of a complete re-installation. Then I decided disable windows defender real-time protection and it worked and worked consistently. Excluding the addons in my documents and excluding the P3Dv4.1 install folder did not work. Had to turnoff real-time protection. Must have been a recent update to defender in Windows 10 that prevented me from entering the options menu and then a ctd. One advantage of not running defender is I gained an average of 15 fps in ORBX intense scenery with Flightbeam Airports such as KFSO. Thank god I did not do a reinstall-24 hours of reinstalling addon scenery would have been a real drag. Hope this helps someone else!
  8. Hi Folks! All of a sudden P3dv4.1 crashes at the start menu when opening the options menu. If I don't try to run options and just load a scenario it loads fine. Tried all of the trouble shooting steps just short of reinstalling. Reinstalled client. Even went so far as deleting the generated files. Nothing seems to correct the issue. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Prepar3D V4 addons compatibility list

    No I have separate folders in P3Dv4 Program Dataa folder for each area i.e. North America, Europe so I do not overload the sim and scenery cfg. Was using simstarter for P3Dv3 as you can have separate scenery cfgs and it it pull from the cfg you want to fly from. This is a great tool as you can create separate configs for both sim settings and scenery. Waiting for the update for P3Dv4 . Until the update comes out for simstarter I am manually editing the scenery cfgs to add scenery using the built-in scenery library editor as the text format has changed to unicode for P3Dv4.

    Prepar3D V4 addons compatibility list

    I am on a roll...after testing most of my US Airports I crossed the pond to Europe and tested a lot of my European scenery: Added/linked them from my P3Dv3 to P3Dv4 scenery.cfg (separate cfgs one for Europe, one for North America). By the way this method is working flawlessly so far, saves ssd drive space. Here is the list of Euro scenery that is working flawlessly so far; All the Justsims All of the Prealsoft HD Cities T2G LFPG and FranceVFR-Isle de Paris-averged 35 fps with all settings on high. Never got that in P3Dv3 and the load times are much faster Moscow City X Digital Design Salzbourg All of the FSDG sceneries minor runway elevation issues in LGKJ Tropicalsims-LIPQ, LPPR and LPPR T2G-LTBA and EDDM Yes I know I am a scenery junkie..armchair traveler can't wait for ORBX to fix the new edition of FTX Central....

    Prepar3D V4 addons compatibility list

    Hi Faelandia! I installed KSLC in P3Dv4 and it looks great no errors. I have also installed the following and absolutely no issues or errors: Cielosim-KJAX and KPAO LatinVFR-KRDU, KSNA, KSAN, TJSJ, KRSW and KEYW DD-Washington X, New York X and Miami X KPHL Sunykist-Freeware T2G-KMCO and KSEA All of the FlyTampa that are updated So far so good, tried AS US Cities LA major issues had to uninstall! Should quit when I'm ahead! Still have the black buildings that correct themselves when changing views but great fps in DD;s Washington X, New York X and Miami X (45 to 50 FPS) which used to cause my FPS to drop into the low 20s.
  12. Your condescending tone is what I was responding to! And I was nothing but polite!
  13. Thanks Jim! But customer support is where you are supposed to direct your inquiries for technical issues with their products and to say it is the White House is more than a little absurd. I will go thru Dean! Thanks! Larry
  14. Hi Jim! Per usual no response. Perhaps because you are a moderator on AVSIM forums you get preferential treatment. The last time I had an issue MegaScenery. I called and sent numerous messages to PC Aviator US and no response. Fianlly got through via phone to Mark who gave me Robert's email. Perhaps I need to send a message to Dean PC Aviator(AUS). From what I have read he is great when it comes to customer service. Larry
