  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Brilliant! I wondered whether this was the case. Thanks for the reply! Darren
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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:-
  9. 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
  10. Ah I see TechguyMaxC. Well thank you for your fast response. Looks like I shall just have to endure the banding then! I have increased the brightness of my monitor recently, I guess that has just made the issue a little more noticeable. Darren
  11. Well, the banding occurs everywhere. No matter where I am, at that time of the day the banding always occurs. I am assuming its a low level shadow being cast because of low light level. So the shadow would be coming from the lack of daylight if that makes sense.
  12. Hello, I am having an issue with ground shadows during dawn. Rather than describe, I took a small video to show the issue. In particular, if you pay attention to the white line markings you will see the shadow "banding" that I am plagued with. Would anybody have any suggestions on what is causing this? I am using PTA and Thopat preset if that has any bearing. Also some Nvidia Inspector tweaks. I have also deleted the shaders folder. My current settings are Thank you in advance Darren
  13. Well mostly I adjusted a number of settings describe int eh AVSim guide. What I found gave me reduced stutters were, Max Regions Purge Per Frame - 8 TextureMaxLoad - 6 Ground Shadow Texture - 512 Cloud Shadow Texture - 256 The latter two are quite low and do give a little flickering, but have such a good impact on frames and stutters I though it worth sacrificing. Also, having the right Affinity Mask worked well. Mine is set at 85 Turning of volumetric fog had a decent impact on frames, up to 8 FPS. I also used Frooglesim's Nvidia settings too:
