    How should I spend my money? (Upgrading PC)

    I don't believe you can overclock non-k Intel processors? That was the CPU I was considering, as *ideally* I wouldn't have to upgrade motherboard etc?

    How should I spend my money? (Upgrading PC)

    My current specs: i7-4790 (Locked) @ 3.6 Ghz Gigabyte GTX 1070 8GB RAM Gigabyte H97-HD3 Motherboard I was leaning towards upgrading my CPU as wasn't exactly satisfied with my performance, because I think it may be bottle-necking my GPU? Roarke
  3. Hi, I have a bit of money that I am interested in using to upgrade my PC for P3D v3. I have been doing a bit of research, but I wanted to hear some opinions more specifically about P3D. I am wondering should I consider upgrading my current HDD to an SDD hard drive, or should I upgrade my CPU? Which would be more beneficial for my sim? Thanks, Roarke

    P3D won't load...

    Hey guys, I think I have found the problem, like I'm 99% sure. I installed P3D onto the family computer to test if it works, and it turns out it does. So I have identified that it is a problem with my computer. Whether it is the graphics card or something I am not sure, so I'm going to take it to my local technician for him to check it out. It has also been happening with my other apps like FSX and a few of my games. So thanks for the help guys, it is really appreciated. I'll post here if the issue is rectified. Cheers Roarke

    Kabronicus, So I have been investigating the event viewer, and have found a few things relating to Prepar3D.

    So I uninstalled and reinstalled following your instructions exactly. This time the scenery.cfg seemed to work, but I still recieved a fatal error. I don't believe it is a problem with my download either as the zip size and checksum are both correct. Here is the error log, if it's any help?

    So have reinstalled using your directions, and everything went smoothly. But, when I opened P3D for the first time, it said that there was no valid scenery.cfg file and it aborted. I don't know what is wrong? Roarke

    Yes, I am about to uninstall and reinstall following Kabronicus' directions. I uninstalled using the setup.exe and manually deleted: %PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 %LOCALAPPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 %APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v3 Files Cheers Roarke
  10. Hey guys, I have already posted in the P3D forum but thought I may also be able to get some help here. I recently purchased, downloaded and installed P3D v3 Academic, without any noticeable errors or issues. I went to run it for the first time, and the splash screen appears for a few minutes. But then it suddenly crashes to desktop and a 'fatal error occurred'. Here is the error log: Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version: 3.2.3.16769, time stamp: 0x56df48ce Faulting module name: unknown, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x00000000 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x000000c8 Faulting process id: 0x398 Faulting application start time: 0x01d195dae55703a9 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\Prepar3D.exe Faulting module path: unknown Report Id: 31a66c04-01cf-11e6-9d5d-fcaa143d1d9d I have uninstalled and reinstalled a few times, plus upgraded by Graphics driver, which is a GTX 760, but I still get the same error. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. Help would be appreciated, regards Roarke
