    P3D V4.2 Application Freeze

    Sounds like a graphics driver crash. Have you overclocked your GPU? Might need to back down on the overclock. If not you might wana try reinstalling the GPU drivers.

    Gsync, VSync and FPS

    For the op, this is the video. Might help.

    Gsync, VSync and FPS

    Last I checked someone made a video about this. Apparently adaptive 1/2 (or 1/3 or 1/4) refresh rate vsync works to a certain extent in P3D. I have been using it with the frame limiter at 40.8 FPS and it does something for sure. How I can tell is, if I have adaptive vsync on in NVI and vsync in P3D off I get a slight input delay. This delay doesn’t exist without adaptive vsync on. I guess standard vsync wouldn’t work in windowed mode.

    Gsync, VSync and FPS

    I have a gsync monitor but I’ve found that P3D is smoother with gsync off and vsync on at 1/4 rate (165hz refresh) with a frame limiter. Gsync is handy with high fps but like you said, below 30 it hardly does anything. In fact it introduces a bit of delay. With P3D and complex addons how often can we get high fps anyway. Also if you use Gsync exclusively it does not limit your FPS to 60. If you exceed 60 it will switch to regular Vsync instead. I would use 1/2 refresh rate with frames limited to 30 in your case for the smoothest experience.

    QW 787 Performance

    Thanks. Forgot to do that again after moving from PD3V3 to V4.

    QW 787 Performance

    This actually performs better for me compared to the malwarelabs a320. Ever since the update with the “tweak” to “optimize cpu usage” I get stutters and low FPS in dense areas with the 320 even though no core is at 100%. Guessing that has to do with them messing up the affinity mask settings. The only issue I have with the 787 is identical to the 777 where I always get a 1 second stutter upon touchdown.
  7. Mate, Thanks but this post was last year lol.

    [P3D V4] Need help with my sound setup

    Had this issue because my receiver was going into standby if I mute sounds. Check that you set windows audio up properly and also use default device in the p3d options. Make sure you don't switch the default audio device when p3d is running or like in my case let it go into standby which removes the device from p3d and makes things weird with multichannel audio.
  9. So I have been using pc speakers with a sound card till now. The amp on the subwoofer died so I bought a new receiver and sub to replace it. Connected by HDMI to the GPU for audio out. Problem is every time I turn off the receiver to save power during long hauls and what not I lose some audio in the sim. Switches, call outs and warning sounds are all muted while I still get engine and ambient sounds. This happens regardless of the aircraft. It also occurs if I watch a movie by bitstreaming audio to the receiver while in flight. There’s obviously something weird going on with the audio in sim if the audio mode is switched or turned off in multichannel. Is there a way to force enable the sounds back without restarting P3D? Last resort would be to leave the receiver on but mute it instead though I think it will still draw a significant amount of power.
  10. You need a bios mod for that. Unfortunately there are no bios mod tools for pascal thus far.
  11. Have had this issue since 4.0. AFAIK it's a P3D issue that occurs on some systems only. Could be something to do with other addons messing up the autogen,

    msi afterburner no osd

    Something to do with the CUDA libraries I guess. I'd rather leave water at ultra than drop it just for an OSD tbh. Can always use Fraps or Shadowplay for FPS counters.

    msi afterburner no osd

    Sometimes Rivatuner, the plugin that enables MSI Afterburner to display stats has conflicts with some 3D programs and games. Also you need to make sure it is up and running before you start P3D. It usually auto launches with AB but sometimes it’s bugged. It’s a purple display icon on the notification bar. Mine kinda disappeared as well after the last driver update. Had to manually open Rivatuner.

    Rebuilding terrain.cfg

    I don’t have UTX but I figured out that it’s probably Amsterdam X which probably uses the terrain.cfg file instead of scenery cfg. Guess I should reinstall that.

    Rebuilding terrain.cfg

    A search revealed someone suggesting to do that on the orbx forum however there aren’t any detailed explanations on the process. I was under the impression that terrain and scenery are separate and addon sceneries would go under scenery.cfg and not terrain.cfg I did make a backup so if anything went wrong I’ll just revert to that. Thanks.
