  1. Aviation Safety Network has a preliminary report of the incident here Warning! the included video includes graphic content! I'll never forget being completely awestruck upon seeing his first ever photo of the Earth shot from the Moon! Thoughts for his family and friends.
  2. Once you've logged into your P3D account, in the section titled "Prepar3d v5 Xxxxxx" click on "+Legacy Full Downloads" for previous versions of v5. is 5.3 HF2. This is the best version of P3D v5 version for me. 5.4 just has too many issues on my system.

    It`s Coming.

    Hmmm, that could actually prove to be safer than flying on a Boeing airliner!πŸ˜€
  4. Probably a push...they have the same Absolute Latency: 10ns This will help you pick the memory (speed) best for you: https://www.xbitlabs.com/ram-speed-calculator/
  5. You can configure DDU to automatically do all the Microsoft "reboot-into-Safe-Mode" exercise. DDU makes safe and thorough cleaning of GPU drivers quick and easy. Perhaps the Nvidia App (still in early Beta) will actually prove to "render DDU pretty much useless". But I doubt the App will ever clean Nvidia registry entries as thoroughly as DDU. Please post screenshots of your App config for P3D. I'd like to see what I'm missing in my App config.
  6. Interesting to see the numerous drones mixing it up with the jet suit folks. What could possibly go wrong?😧
  7. Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe Webcams at various elevations between 8000' and 10,000'. The trees are getting quite the workout in the wind... and of course there is a "bit" of snow!
  8. I gave the new APP a try... back to NCP + NPI after a couple hours of testing. I've also read a few reviews, watched some YouTubes, and decided many of those folks simply have not tried to use the APP much! It's as dumbed down as an early Beta can be!! I believe what Nvidia (and some reviewers) are hyping is the fact that it doesn't require a log-in like GFE. That's nice but the App is still collecting telemetry. And I don't need to deal with telemetry just to set some registry flags for my GPU drivers. Don't know about the new App being faster than NCP... on my system they are both fast. One thing the App has over NCP is looks. It is indeed purtier than NCP. 😁
  9. No thanks, after seeing your screens and noticing how FSL messes with your computer. I'm not keen on a vendor "adjusting" my affinity mask (or anything else on my computer). I'll just stay with the "slow" Lear 25 as my "go-to rocket".πŸ˜ƒ
  10. Have you tried the latest (551.23/551.46)? The .46 are a Hotfix Driver using the .23. Both are very good drivers. GeForce Experience is included in both GRD drivers and Studio drivers.πŸ‘ Good luck!
  11. I wasn't aware LM recommended that "2 and 4" (do you mean the second and third of the 3 ThreadScheduler entries?) be unchanged. I have been running them for months on my P3Dv5.3HF2 on 2 of the E Cores of my 13900KF. Doing so allows me to run 2 more P Cores as terrain loaders. And I use 4 of my E Cores in my P3D affinity mask (they too are terrain loaders). For the past few years I've been using HT on my Intel CPU's because I found the feature offered me the best performance (mostly smoothness, not so much FPS) for FSX and P3D 64 bit. But when I built my 13900KF system several months ago I flew for many hours a number of test flights I've used over the years, and the CPU performed that same for me with HT on or off. Of course, the temp was lower with HT off. So for me 24 cores works best. As well, turning on HT will have no effect on your E Cores; only the P Cores have HT. One of the tuning tasks I use for my flightsim box is to make sure all cores are unparked. Core Parking is a power saving tech (a tiny, minuscule amount of power savingπŸ˜–). For me it isn't worth the latency it brings. You can check your Core Parking configuration using a simple, standalone app titled Disable CPU Core Parking Utility by Coder Bag. You can easily move the slider to the right to disable Core Parking. Note that you have to make the setting for every Windows Power Plan you utilize. The reason I bring up Core Parking is your E Cores not working for you. Perhaps they are parked by your OS? For us though, the E Cores can be useful; they can do work for us.
  12. Your AffinityMask and P3DCoreAffinityMask value of 16777215 places the sim on all cores, yet in a later post above you note that you're leaving Core 0 to the OS. Also, all of your Task Manager screenshots above show that your E Cores are doing little if anything... they're in the "dirt nap" mode😁. Which is in contrast (all 24 cores in use) to what you noted when you right-clicked the (P3D) executable in Task Manager - Details. The fact your E Cores are not being used may be a factor in your very acceptable low CPU temps. What led you to choose Core 6 as the MainThreadScheduler?

  14. Welcome to Avsim!! I missed your "new member" post count earlier.πŸ™„ I used to shoot the races for a local newspaper. Back to business... sorry that I can't help you much more with P3D V6. I'm still on 5.3HF2. All I can say for sure is that after 5 years of RXP GTN updates for P3D, they all worked fine for me including the autopilot. And that update I mentioned above is indeed new... I checked my updater last week and it showed 2.7.7 from last month. Hopefully a member flying the GTN's in V6 will be along to assist you.πŸ‘
  15. I just check my RXP Updater and it shows the app was updated to version 2.7.8 for P3D v6.1.9 (P3D v6.1 Patch 1). The update date is shown as "JAN2024". The seller of RXP products (Flight1) recently ended their decades-old 30 Day Refund policy in favor of the infamous "All Sales Are Final" policy.😑
  16. Have you configured P3Dv5.4 to Run as Administrator? If so, then I'd next test the memory. MemTest86 is the preferred choice. Use the free version, and if you've never used the app before take some time to familiarize yourself. Also, since you note various Faulting modules you should be prepared to reinstall Windows apps like .Net Framework and Visual C++ Runtimes. 0xc0000005 errors can be... challenging. Good luck!πŸ‘
  17. First easiest thing to try is new drivers for your 2080Ti. Because you may have GPU driver issues, you should certainly use DDU (in Safe Mode) to clean your system before upgrading. Download DDU from the Wagnardsoft website (the Portable/Self-extracting version works fine). Download the latest Nvidia drivers and disable your Internet connection before installing. Next, you should make sure all the MS Visual C++ Runtimes are installed. We all have any number of addons running alongside the sim, and any of them requiring a Runtime can cause problems. The best all-in-one Runtime/Redistributable package I've found is from Techspot ... download the "All Visual Studio C++ Runtimes" option. Simply run the installer and it will repair or install missing C++ packages. I have (3) Prepar3d v5.3HF2 running in my task manager and have no problems.
  18. No, it's about the cost of living where you live. Simple as that. We live in the same neighborhood as Newtie (well, on the east side of the valley), and my wife is a teacher. She makes better than most because she's a Special Ed teacher (more education than the average teacher... in her case, much more... which means we spent much $$$ on her education). And she works in a Title 1 District, by choice. I can tell you, Dave, $30K a year is barely enough to put food on the table here (that from an employer in the private sector). Just because the cost of living in Tennessee is so much lower than Northern CA doesn't mean we're tryin' to rip-off the tax payer. Teacher's everywhere are underpaid (I bring that FACT forth as an employer in the manufacturing industry, not the spouse of a teacher). Finally, I'll point out something folks like Newtie can understand... my wife is retiring next year after 25 years working in a Title 1 school district. Not because it's a poor district (we live miles away outside the district) but because it is so poorly managed! My wife's district has been taken over by the teacher's aids... a true example of the inmates taking over the asylum! So she's "cashin' in" as you might think. But Luke is right in is numbers... most of our retirement will come from my private sector retirement planning. More than 2/3 of our retirement! Fact of the matter is this... very few teachers rip off anybody!! They get into the gig because they want to make a difference! Money has little to do with their choice of professions! If your Tennessee teachers can suddenly reach $100K salary you should feel lucky they are there educating your grandchildren!! Feel lucky for your school teachers, man!!😁
  19. Looks like it comes with an onboard heating system... very handy!πŸ˜€
  20. The court handed down a 6 month sentence after Jacob's guilty plea last spring. And he released a statement to NBC through his attorney: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/youtuber-plane-crash-sentenced-obstructing-investigation-rcna128001
  21. Did you change GPU drivers recently? Have you ruled out that it could be a GPU driver issue?
  22. To clarify, where did you have Triple Buffering Enabled? In P3D or in the Nvidia drivers? TB can be useful but only if enabled in the drivers... much better than enabling the feature in the sim.
  23. It's not necessary to have the Flight 1 GTN installed. What the Config Panel does is change the frame for whatever GPS you want to use. Once you've chosen the Flight 1 GTN you can then install the Reality XP GTN 750 inside that frame. Please navigate to the folder where your Panel Config app is located. Included in that folder should be the AutoPlay folder. Open it, then the Files folder. Inside Files you should have a couple folders, and some files that can be opened using a text editor (Notepad works fine). One of the files you should have is Config.ini... open it and find the [Radios] section. There your should have a couple entries: gps1.type=750 gps2.type=650 or 750 or NoGps or GPS500 (you decide what piece of avionics you want for your secondary nav device) If these two entries are not in your [Radios] section then add them, and choose what configuration you want for your gps2.type. Save the file (as an ini) and now open your Panel Config to see if you have the Flight 1 choice in the left window of the "GPS & Radios" tab. 🍻
  24. Is the RealAir Config Panel in your Windows Start menu working? You need the Config Panel to change from the default GPS 500 to the Flight 1 GTN 750, then use the Reality XP install instructions to install the RXP 750 into the frame of the Flight1 GTN.
