  1. Absolutely my experience this weekend too. I loved P3d, but the old girl took up to much time with tinkering, getting it to run smoothly. And finally, i have MSFS running very sweet, the first time ever. I wont be looking back. Which I never thought would happen to me. P3d will be uninstalled for the last time over the next week. She did me good for many years.
  2. Maybe worth a shot, but do you Orbx Base/Vector or any Landclasses installed? I had a similar type of stuttering and after many weeks of searching, my solution was re-installing the Orbx products. Apparently the latest hotfixes dont play well with Orbx.
  3. Thank you for your help. I found the solution which was that I hadnt switched the HMD Display mode to Stereo in V5. Back thank for the tip on steam VR. Ill give it ago!
  4. Hi all, I am new to the VR scene and am struggling to get the Quest 2 working with P3d. I managed to get MSFS 2020 working quite well, with settings adjusted for a fairly smooth experience. As for 5.1, I start it up as a normal flight, then switch the VR using the menu bar. Select P3d in the headset. However, at this point, the screen just goes blank (black) on both the headset and monitor. Ive tried looking for solutions but cannot find anything. Would anyone be able to offer some help? My system CPU I9-10900k (no O/C) GPU RTX3090 RAM 32gb Everything is update date in terms of drivers and saoftware and what not. Thank you
  5. Thanks Dave, Im assuming this is whats causing my lag spike. I forgot to mention I am running FSUIPC limiter at 30 aircraft. However, the lag spike is still there making me believe that something with the AI is causing it.
  6. Hello, I have recently reinstalled Windows 10 and subsequently P3D v4.5 and all its add-ons. I have got it running almost to the point where I am happy, maintaining a steady 30 FPS in most situations. However, I have come across periods of time in which the FPS will fluctuate heavily up and down to 10fps for a few seconds. It appears to happen when approaching larger airports. (Default and add-on). I've narrowed it down to the Ai aircraft which I am using AIG manager. When turning off AI, the lag spike no longer occurs. I've verified AIG. Would anyone have any other suggestions as to eliminate this lag spike? It certainly wasn't there pre reinstallation. Thanks in advance Darren
  7. Hello, I recently had to do a full wipe/windows 10 reinstall due to a poor windows 10 update that left my PC flailing around like a wounded pigeon. After about 2 weeks, I have managed to get P3D back to where it was before, running quite smoothly, at around 30 FPS. However, I’m plagued by a stutter/long frame every so often which looks as if it’s being caused by SQL Server Windows NT. This service starts up randomly and peaks at 10-15% CPU usage, which seems to fall into line with the P3D Stutter. I have read up on this programme and it seems to be non essential to windows 10, so I run task manager and stop the service which seems to help the stutter. I’ve managed to disable this programme from running by setting it to disabled in the services tab of Task Manager. However, something seems to be starting it again and I don’t know what programme is doing it. My question is, are there any P3D add-ons out there that use SQL Server that would start up this porcess? I never had an issue with it pre windows 10 reinstall. I can’t seem to uninstall it either. I’m running P3D V4.5 latest version, add-ons:- Active Sky, AI Flow/Ground, FFTF,,Littlenav connect (for Littlenav map on separate PC), Radar Contact, Rex Environment Force, RTSS, Orbx (Inc ChasePlane), FSUIPC, GSX, Lorby Addon Organizor/Flashlight, Most of the current pay ware aircraft out there. Any help would be appreciated Thank you Darren
  8. Brilliant! I wondered whether this was the case. Thanks for the reply! Darren
  9. Hello, Was just wondering how one would test the TCAS system on the dash 8? The 400 was just a simple push in the middle of the TCAS dial. For the life of me I cant seem to find any reference on how to complete the test? Thanks Darren
  10. Hello, I have recently upgraded P3d to V4.2 and am having issues with the PMDG747. Every time I select the "Start RC" button, it crashes P3d with RC hanging in the background. It all works fine with all other aircraft, I have even tried loading the 747 in different states, but nothing seems to work. Any help woulds be appreciated. Thanks Darren
  11. Alex, Thank you very much for your quick response! It shows all the detail now. Congrats on a great piece of software, and your support! Darren
  12. That looks much more detailed than what I am seeing, I have the level set to +5, yet all I see are outlines for the runways only:-
  13. Started using this neat bit of kit since moving over to V4.2. I have a question, I use to use Flight Sim commander which allowed me to view the gates that were in the sim at each airport, now I may be missing something, but does Little Navmap have that ability? I always like to study the map first to determine which gate is suitable, and for taxiing purposes. Using online charts isn't a solution, as sometimes I fly into default airports. Thanks! Darren
